Ms Burch: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The attached list provides names of the community childcare centres managed by the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services under a sub-lease, or under a Department of Education and Training licence.

(2) Rent for all sites is set at $0.05 per annum on demand.

(3) See attached list.

(4) Currently, community childcare operators occupy Department of Disability Housing and Community Services managed premises under a 5 year sub-lease. Under normal circumstances the sub-lease is automatically renewed with the incumbent community childcare provider. The renewal also includes input from the Children’s Policy and Regulation Unit.

(5) A small number of sub-leases will or have expired, but the tenants will continue to occupy the premises on a month-to-month basis on the original terms of the existing sub-lease until a new sub-lease is executed. All childcare operators that are on month-to-month tenancy have been advised of their continuing tenancy.

(6) The Department advises those tenants who have a lease that will expire in 2011 that they will continue to occupy the premises on a month-to month tenancy on the same conditions as the existing sub-lease pending the execution of a new sub-lease.
