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

(1) The South Canberra Veterans Shed (SCVS) met with Minister Gentleman on 8 March 2017, seeking assistance to find land to build or relocate their ‘Shed’ and obtain temporary storage. They were advised at that time to contact ACT Property Group (ACTPG) to discuss their requirements so that a suitable facility could be identified. That contact has not yet been made nor has the SCVS submitted an application to ACTPG to register on the Accommodation Register. Consequently they have not been notified or shown any suitable properties that may have become available over the past 12 months.

SCVS was also encouraged to contact the Government’s Direct Sales Team for information about their eligibility to apply for land that is designated for ‘community activity’. As at 5 March 2018 there has not been an application submitted by the group.

The Vietnam Veterans and Veterans Federation ACT Inc in Page is an example of an organisation who obtained their land through the aforementioned process.

(2) – (7) Refer to response (1).
