Bulimba Barracks

(Question No. 640)


Ms Butler asked the Minister for Defence Personnel, in writing, on 30 November 2016:

In respect of the Bulimba Barracks Environmental Investigation Report (21 July 2015) relating to contamination at the Bulimba Barracks site, (a) what is the progress of the remediation work, and (b) will all remediation work be completed before the open market sale.


Mr Tehan: The answers to the honourable member's questions are as follows:

Defence has undertaken some remediation work at the site following the preparation of an environmental report in July 2015. The contaminants that have been identified on the site are not unusual for any typical metropolitan redevelopment site. Defence will ensure that a prospective purchaser is aware of the environmental report and the extent of work that has been undertake.
