Confusion Over PCYC Lock-Out

Victor P Taffa

Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Member for Brennan, Peter Chandler, said stakeholders involved with the Police Citizens’ Youth Club are owed an explanation as to why they have been locked out of the facility over the Christmas-New Year period.

Mr. Chandler said he has been told the locks at the Berrimah Facility were changed during the holiday period without stakeholders being notified.

“I understand notices to vacate the premises have already been issued with sporting organisations such as the judo club, but now I believe the locks have been changed without prior notification.”

“There has been speculation for some time that the PCYC would be vacated, but this latest move ups the ante.” Mr. Chandler said.

“Sporting organisations store their equipment within the PCYC premises and they are owed an explanation as to why the locks were changed.”

“I believe members of judo club are currently standing at the PCYC entrance explaining why the premises are closed.”

“The PCYC Board should detail its plans for the club and if Board Members are not committed to providing Sporting Options for young people in the Northern Territory, then what is its role?” Mr. Chandler asked.
