Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 01 Hansard (Thursday, 11 February 2016) . . Page.. 371 ..

What was the cost for building the playground on McConchie Circuit, Weston, including (a) the cost of equipment, (b) the cost of landscaping, (c) the cost of fencing, (d) the cost of footpaths and (e) any other costs in establishing this playground.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The playground on McConchie Circuit, Weston was built by a private developer as part of the development of the suburb. Therefore, the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate are unable to provide a breakdown of the cost for building the playground.

Questions without notice taken on notice


Mr Gentleman (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Smyth on Tuesday, 17 November 2015): The Government is considering the findings of the Auditor-General’s report and will table a whole of government response in the Legislative Assembly in February 2016.

Icon Water—assets

Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Lawder on Thursday, 19 November 2015): The Treasurer has been advised by CMTEDD officials of an informal approach, in the context of the Unsolicited Proposals Framework, relating to Icon Water assets qualifying for the Asset Recycling Initiative. While this proposal is being considered by officials in accordance with the Framework guidelines, as is any such proposal received, Government policy is to not privatise water assets.


Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question and a supplementary questions by Mr Coe and Mr Doszpot on Wednesday, 28 October 2015): There are no current development applications (DA’s) for either Block 8 Section 80 or Block 20 Section 85 in Giralang.

The ACT Property Group is the land custodian for Block 20 Section 85 which is an old depot, rather than a scout hall. The ACT Government is actively seeking a tenant for this block as the main building is currently vacant. The yard is currently being used by the ACT Rogaining Association and Orienteering ACT.

With respect to Block 8 Section 80, this block is currently vacant unleased land behind the Giralang shops and is commercial zoned land (CZ4). This land was not part of the direct sale proposal for the shops, which involved land fronting Canopus Crescent. I am advised that the Economic Development Directorate is not aware of any current proposals for this piece of land.

I also provide the following advice with respect to other surrounding blocks in the vicinity of Giralang school:

• Block 5 Section 80 (the Former Giralang Health Centre) is currently tenanted by Barnardos.
