Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 11 February 2016) . . Page.. 352 ..

(3) Earlybird focused on the ACT Sport Hall of Fame induction event. SRS dealt directly with some costs associated with the event, including production of the annual book and preparation and mounting of profiles in the Hall of Fame. The event was held on 23 November 2015 – a full reconciliation of all costs in delivery of the Hall of Fame is not yet completed. Arrangements for the future delivery of the Hall of Fame is under consideration and yet to be decided.

(4) Of those activities that were delivered by ACTSPORT prior to its wind up, SRS coordinated the delivery of the 2015 ACT Sport Hall of Fame. SRS is also currently compiling sector input for the 2015 Active2020 report card. Management of tenancies within ACT Sports House now rests with ACT Property Group.

(5) Two non-sporting and six sporting organisations, including one national body, remained at the Hackett property at the time ACTSPORT relocated to the University of Canberra. Three of these sporting organisations are in the process or have recently completed relocation to other locations.

(6) Rental income from current tenants at Maitland House Hackett (formerly Sports House), including former ACTSPORT tenants who remain at this location, is around $93,000 per annum, paid to ACT Property Group.

(7) No discounts or rebates were offered to tenants remaining at the former Sports House. The tenants were offered the standard ACT Property Group community rental rate for multi tenanted buildings.

(8) All sporting organisations seeking to remain at Hackett were required to provide information to inform a letter from ACTSPORT to ACT Government endorsing their reasons for not moving to the University of Canberra. Reasons provided by ACTSPORT to the ACT Government were that tenants were moving to other properties at a later date, that the smaller open plan office arrangements were not suitable, and/or that storage was insufficient. Tenants remaining at Hackett were only provided with a two year license agreement to September 2016.

(9) When ACTSPORT surveyed its members in 2014, feedback revealed that there had been a maturation of the sector such that it saw a limited role for ACTSPORT based on its current and historic offerings. The 2014 ACTSPORT member consultation also raised questions regarding the need and viability of any industry “peak body” in the ACT. SRS are currently further engaging with the local sporting sector to explore what, if any, gaps have arisen from the winding down of ACTSPORT. Should any new entity emerge, support would be considered on the basis of genuine need, viability and sustainability, and in consultation with the sector.

(10) SRS are undertaking an Economic Impact Statement in 2015-16. A steering committee comprised of sector representatives is in place and will engage suitable expertise to deliver the report.

(11) Cost will be subject to the final scope of works and open tender process.
