Questions without notice taken on notice

Westside village—costs

Mr Barr (in reply to a question by Mr Coe and a supplementary question by Mr Wall on Wednesday, 16 September 2015):

1. The net recurrent cost will depend on a variety of factors including the number of containers occupied, booked events and expenditure on infrastructure, works and services.

2. The ACT Government is finalising the rental arrangements that will apply at Westside. Rental rates for each vendor will be based on container ownership, location of the container and the types of services provided to the container. The rental rates will be per container rather than per square metre.


Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Wall on Tuesday, 22 September 2015): The Capital Metro Agency (CMA) engaged Parsons Brinkerhoff to prepare, document, and submit a draft and final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the first stage of the Capital Metro, based on work completed by the CMA project team in conjunction with relevant ACT Government Directorates. The CMA provided Parsons Brinkerhoff with a final report detailing suitable sites along the alignment for use as construction compounds for inclusion in the EIS project footprint. No specific discussions were had about the closure of the court car park outside of this activity.

Government—land purchases

Mr Barr (in reply to a question and supplementary questions by Mr Smyth and Mr Coe on Thursday, 24 September 2015): The primary purpose of the purchase of Block 24 Section 65 City is to establish a water quality control pond to replace Coranderrk Pond.

This will improve water quality in Lake Burley Griffin as the population in the catchment grows and allows for future re-configuration of Parkes Way.

The Block has been purchased for $4.18 million inclusive of GST.
