77. PROMIS management system

Mr ELFERINK to MINISTER for POLICE, FIRE and EMERGENCY SERVICES

During a recent briefing by the Commissioner for Police, he indicated that he planned to spend $1.8m on the police PROMIS system to deal with its inherent problems.

How much of that money has been spent and is the system working effectively as a result of this expenditure?

ANSWER

As a result of years of under-funding, the PROMIS technical environment was very outdated. The upgrade of the system consists of several complex and integrated technical sub-projects including replacement of hardware, and upgrades to the operating systems and databases. These upgrades will create the platform for implementation of the new releases of PROMIS as provided by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), which will provide real gains to the members. As most sub-projects are sequential and reliant on several external parties, the total time to complete this project is substantial.

Numerous sub-projects are now complete, as planned, including the replacement of 20 servers, and upgrades to the databases and associated operating systems. This allowed Police, Fire and Emergency Services to implement the enhancements provided by the AFP from the version used (August 2001 release) to the version released in January 2003. A large number of problems previously experienced were addressed as a result of this.

The next phase of this project includes the final stage of hardware replacement, and upgrades to the operating systems to allow the implementation of the latest version of the PROMIS application.

The $1.8m funding allocated to the PROMIS system is recurrent. The expenditure to date is in accordance with the project plan and budget allocation.

78. Larapinta Stage IV land release

Mr ELFERINK to MINISTER for LANDS and PLANNING

There is now mass confusion regarding what is happening with land in Alice Springs. The price squeeze in Alice Springs is forcing people to consider living elsewhere as well as taking no pressure from absurdly unaffordable house prices.

Minister, what is happening with the Larapinta Stage IV land release?

ANSWER

In December 2003, letters were exchanged between Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation and my Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment in reaching agreement to put both areas of development at Larapinta before the Development Consent Authority (DCA).

Earl James and Associates has submitted the application to the DCA on behalf of government. The subdivision application was on public exhibition until 23 January 2004 and was approved at the DCA meeting on 29 January 2004.

The subdivision will provide the basis for an Indigenous Land Use Agreement that will subsequently extinguish native title over the residential lots to be released.

There are 85 allotments proposed from the subdivision.

79. Unimproved land values, Alice Springs

Mr ELFERINK to MINISTER for LANDS and PLANNING

What is the average price of an unimproved land house block in Alice Springs and how many are currently available for purchase.

ANSWER

The price for unimproved land varies dependent on location, size and any constraint that may exist on the land.

The Real Estate Institute of the Northern Territory Inc has identified six vacant urban allotments currently listed for private sale ranging in price from $87 000 to $250 000.

In the 2002 calendar year sales statistics indicate that eight vacant urban allotments under 800m2 in size were sold at an average price of $96 190. For the same period 33 vacant urban allotments over 800m2 in size sold at an average price $95 070.

Figures for the calendar year to the end of November 2003 indicate that 10 vacant urban allotments under 800m2 in size were sold at an average price of $100 700. Eleven vacant urban allotments over 800m2 in size were sold at an average price of $85 300 for the same period.
