Allocation of places to services with extra service status

             (1)  The Secretary must not approve the allocation of * places to a residential care service that has, or a * distinct part of which has, * extra service status unless subsection (2) or (3) applies to the allocation.

             (2)  The Secretary may approve the allocation if satisfied that the * places other than the allocated places could, after the allocation, form one or more * distinct parts of the residential care service concerned.

Note:          The allocated places would not have * extra service status because of the operation of section 31-3.

             (3)  The Secretary may approve the allocation if satisfied that:

                     (a)  granting the allocation would be reasonable, having regard to the criteria set out in section 32-4; and

                     (b)  granting the allocation would not result in the maximum proportion of * extra service places under section 32-7, for the State, Territory or region concerned, being exceeded; and

                     (c)  any other requirements set out in the Allocation Principles are satisfied.

Note:          These * places would have * extra service status because of the operation of section 31-1. (Section 31-3 would not apply.)
