(5) What is the estimated minimum cost for the (a) Spence and (b) McKellar ovals to be upgraded for sports and recreation.

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

(1) The ovals below are non-irrigated ovals suitable for informal community use.

(a) Florey = 1.8 hectares (ha).

(b) Spence =2.1ha.

(c) McKellar = 1.7ha.

(2) Duffy neighbourhood oval is available for limited formal sporting use and is 1.9ha.

(3) The minimum size for an irrigated oval suitable for formal sporting use is approximately 2ha. This enables the provision of two combination fields overlayed with either a cricket field or Australian Football League (AFL) field.

(4) The existing site is currently suitable for informal use.

(5) Estimated costs for an upgrade are subject to assessment of existing infrastructure and the desired level of facility.

(Question No 3184)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Planning and Land Management, upon notice, on 3 July 2020:

(1) In relation to the potential flooding in the vicinity of the Kippax Group Centre, given that the 2015 Kippax Group Centre Flood Study Report made five recommendations to alleviate existing flooding problems within and adjacent to the Kippax Group Centre study area and the report noted that “without implementing all the above options, existing blocks have the potential of flooding during a 1 per cent Annual Exceedance Probability storm event”, can the Minister provide an update for each of the following, (a) regrade the trap low point at the Starke Street underpass, (b) clear out and regrade the overgrown vegetated swale from the Starke Street underpass, running parallel with Starke Street, (c) construct a detention basis with an inlet into the existing stormwater network on the corner of Flack Street and Moyes Crescent, (d) regrade the existing grassed swale downstream of the Flack Street underpass and (e) investigate the purpose of the detention basin downstream of Southern Cross Drive and lower the detention basin embankment by up to 1 metre if possible, including when each commenced, when completed, current state of progress if not completed, projected date of completion, reasons for delay, reasons for not following through on the recommendation, etc.

(2) Has the recommendation in the report that the TRUFLOW model be rerun with a detailed survey of the overland flow paths through the urban open space area within the Kippax Group Centre study area to provide more accurate flood levels to (a) inform the detailed design of the mitigation options listed above and (b) inform building floor levels for future development with the study area, been done; if so, when was it completed, and can the Minister please provide the outcomes; if not, why not and when will it be completed.
