A Message from Mayor Steve Christou<br />

Mayor Steve Christou talks with local seniors about their needs at our annual seniors Easter lunches.<br />

Pensioners score extra free day at our pools<br />

Pensioners can enjoy a second free day at all<br />

council-owned swimming pools. We’ve always<br />

offered free entry to pensioners on Tuesday,<br />

but now they can enjoy free entry on Thursdays<br />

too. The motion, put forward by our new Deputy<br />

Mayor Councillor Michael Zaiter, and seconded by<br />

Councillor Joseph Rahme, was supported by all<br />

councillors.<br />

This is a step in the right direction and a move<br />

I’m proud of considering more than 15% of the<br />

Cumberland population is over the age of 60 and<br />

that’s set to grow over the next decade.<br />

Seniors make an enormous contribution to<br />

Cumberland and their vulnerability has been<br />

heightened during the pandemic.<br />

We’re pleased to offer a wide range of<br />

opportunities that enable their continued activity<br />

and participation in community life. For the ageing<br />

population, exercise has been shown to prevent<br />

disease, lower the risk of falls, improve mental<br />

health and well-being and strengthen social ties<br />

and cognitive function. Opening the doors to our<br />

pools after months of being at home is a great way<br />

to support this.<br />

Visit our website or contact Council to find out<br />

more about pool operating hours, and to learn<br />

more about the full range of services for pensioners<br />

and seniors: www.cumberland.nsw.gov.au/<br />

Nominations for 2022<br />

Cumberland Citizen of the<br />

Year Award now open<br />

The Granville Centre is one of council’s latest facilities now ready for hire.<br />

You asked, we listened<br />

It’s important for us that our residents are getting<br />

the most out of eased restrictions as we follow<br />

the roadmap to recovery. We’ve been receiving<br />

feedback to reopen our community centres a bit<br />

earlier than we’d planned. That’s why most of our<br />

community centres and facilities have now opened<br />

their doors, with hirers able to book in line with the<br />

latest Public Health Orders.<br />

We know these spaces host community groups,<br />

outreach programs, a range of classes and<br />

functions. I’m pleased to see our community<br />

getting back to doing the things they love.<br />

You can find updated booking information here:<br />

Exciting news! You can now nominate for the<br />

2022 Cumberland Citizen of the Year Award.<br />

There’s five categories (schools, elderly,<br />

youth and more!) to choose from, so if you<br />

know someone who you think deserves the<br />

recognition, be sure to nominate them. Do you<br />

have an excellent neighbour or someone who<br />

helped out during the pandemic? Nominate<br />

them! It’s my favourite award to be involved<br />

in because it coincides with Australia Day<br />

and represents the true Australian spirit of<br />

community, mateship and lending a helping<br />

hand.<br />

Dancing out of lockdown<br />

Restaurants roar back to life as eager locals enjoy eased COVID restrictions<br />

NICOLA BARTON<br />

Fully vaccinated locals are wasting<br />

no time in taking advantage of their<br />

new freedoms, with patrons filling<br />

up <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s fine selection of bars and<br />

eateries.<br />

Owner of The Dancing Bear at Wentworth<br />

Point, Roy Tarabine said to say it’s<br />

been a busy first week back is an understatement,<br />

stating “every night felt like a<br />

Saturday”.<br />

“We are so happy to be able to open<br />

again, it’s been super busy and the support<br />

from the community has been amazing,”<br />

he said.<br />

“You can really feel it in the air that<br />

everyone is excited to be out and we’re a<br />

place that is perfect for people to come,<br />

chill out and enjoy themselves.”<br />

Relatively new on the Wentworth Point<br />

scene, The Dancing Bear is a vibrant and<br />

trendy bar and restaurant, specialising<br />

in unique cocktails and tapas-style share<br />

plates, with a middle eastern twist.<br />

The Dancing Bear only opened its doors<br />

in March, trading for about three months<br />

before lockdown forced them to close.<br />

Owners of The Dancing Bear Kristine and Roy Tarabine. Photo: Melissa Stevens.<br />

“I’m a Wentworth Point resident and<br />

there was never a real ‘local’ or a nice place<br />

to have a drink, so after the last lockdown<br />

I thought it would be a great way to bring<br />

people back together and decided to open<br />

The Dancing Bear,” he said.<br />

“We did expect for this [lockdown] to<br />

happen, it was just a matter of when for us,<br />

so we were ready to adapt with takeaway<br />

cocktails, wraps and grazing platters.<br />

“So many locals came down to support<br />

us before we had to officially close the<br />

doors, which was really humbling.<br />

“We’ve now launched a new menu and<br />

added six new cocktails to our list. We<br />

have 17 different cocktails now... we press<br />

our own lemonade; we really try to put an<br />

emphasis on the experience.”<br />

Mr Tarabine said his experience policing<br />

COVID-<strong>19</strong> protocols and checking vaccine<br />

passports, whilst awkward, has been relatively<br />

positive.<br />

Many hospitality industry workers were<br />

bracing for the worst as they opened their<br />

doors last week, unsure of how the unvaccinated<br />

population would comply with the<br />

Health Orders.<br />

Whilst some have had positive experiences,<br />

there have been media reports of<br />

others abusing staff over denial of entry.<br />

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has<br />

urged residents of NSW to show patience<br />

and respect.<br />

Unvaccinated residents can attend<br />

restaurants from December 1.<br />

<strong>Parra</strong> Matters<br />

alanmascarenhas09@gmail.com<br />

Is <strong>Parra</strong>matta no longer part of western<br />

Sydney? It feels almost sacrilegious to say<br />

it. Literally, of course, <strong>Parra</strong>matta is west<br />

of everything traditionally associated<br />

with Sydney.<br />

Increasingly, though, we are a global,<br />

multicultural city. <strong>Parra</strong>matta is the place<br />

where our people choose to be. We have<br />

a soft power all our own. There’s no need<br />

to define ourselves in relation to a distant<br />

harbour or anywhere else.<br />

As we approach the post-pandemic era,<br />

I believe this thinking will become more<br />

common.<br />

NSW Premier Neville Wran once campaigned<br />

on a theme of hospital “Beds to<br />

the West”. Prime Minister Julia Gillard famously<br />

set up camp at the Rooty Hill RSL<br />

to connect with the people of the region.<br />

Even today, questions of resourcing and<br />

unequal access to services remain important.<br />

But consider the journey of the Wests<br />

Magpies, one of rugby league’s foundation<br />

clubs. Their home was initially Pratten<br />

Park, Ashfield; then Lidcombe Oval;<br />

then Orana Park, Campbelltown. Merging<br />

with the Balmain Tigers in <strong>19</strong>99, the<br />

Magpies showed that the question of<br />

what constitutes the west has become<br />

increasingly fluid – and meaningless. Is<br />

Ryde part of western Sydney? What about<br />

East Hills or Castle Hill?<br />

The other stereotype we should challenge<br />

is that the west is an area of grievance.<br />

The old stereotype of the fibrodwellers<br />

versus the silvertails no longer<br />

cuts it. Yes, there remain pockets of real<br />

poverty. But riding off a construction<br />

boom, an enterprising tradie can earn as<br />

much as a stockbroker. And our homegrown<br />

entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors,<br />

carers, IT specialists and data scientists<br />

are improving society each day.<br />

The NSW Government has now stopped<br />

calling the 12 councils subject to the<br />

toughest lockdown restrictions “areas of<br />

concern”.<br />

Others, such as the Mayor of Fairfield,<br />

urge it to go further and stop generically<br />

labelling areas as western and southwestern<br />

Sydney.<br />

Today, as Sydney sprawls outward,<br />

it’s become easier to think of the Inner<br />

West encompassing not just Strathfield<br />

but Auburn, Granville, Canterbury and<br />

Bankstown. Other parts of the city have<br />

distinctive identities, say, the Northern<br />

Beaches or Sutherland Shire. Now, the<br />

suggestion is that Fairfield, Liverpool,<br />

Campbelltown, Wollondilly and Penrith<br />

should be rebadged as something like<br />

Auto..................................................30<br />

Sport ...........................................31-32<br />

“The Parklands” – recognising their residential<br />

character is set against wide open<br />

spaces, mountains and lakes.<br />

A publicity stunt? Perhaps, but it correctly<br />

recognises the pandemic has<br />

forged a new local civic pride. A Delta<br />

outbreak that started in Bondi hit our<br />

communities hard. But our workers kept<br />

much of the city going. And like Londoners<br />

during the Blitz, we made sacrifices,<br />

got vaccinated and proved our resilience.<br />

We don’t resent the rest of the city that<br />

lounged on beaches while we did our<br />

best to follow the health orders. But we<br />

certainly don’t feel inferior.<br />

So, to answer my original question, yes<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta is literally part of “western<br />

Sydney”. But less and less do I think it<br />

adequately captures our aspirations, our<br />

potential to lure visitors, even our plans<br />

to partner with Westmead in establishing<br />

a specialisation in biotechnology and<br />

life sciences to rival Copenhagen and<br />

Boston. Liverpool, with its Health and<br />

Academic Precinct, is also considering its<br />

economic identity and future anew.<br />

It’s time to recognise that all of Sydney’s<br />

suburban centres have a confident role to<br />

play in the mosaic of our city.<br />

Each wants to make its own way regionally,<br />

nationally and in the world.<br />

Happy tears for families<br />

Months in the making: Reunions on the agenda thanks to end of lockdown<br />

NICOLA BARTON<br />

It was all smiles and some tears last<br />

week, as locals reunited with loved<br />

ones for the first time in over 100 days.<br />

Some took the opportunity to reconnect<br />

over a bite to eat, others visited family<br />

members in aged care; regardless, there’s<br />

no doubt it will be a moment that will be<br />

remembered forever.<br />

Winston Hills residents Debbi and Todd<br />

Rogan reunited with their daughter and<br />

grandchildren last Monday after three<br />

months.<br />

Despite only living a few kilometres<br />

apart, due to being zoned in different<br />

Local Government Areas, they were<br />

unable to see each other.<br />

Whilst they kept in touch as much as<br />

possible over Zoom and FaceTime, Ms<br />

Rogan said it’s been extremely difficult<br />

and was relieved to finally be reunited.<br />

“I am so excited, I can’t believe how much<br />

my grandsons have grown,” she said.<br />

“It’s been so hard to not just drive down<br />

the road and see them but because we are<br />

in different LGAs we weren’t allowed; I’ve<br />

honestly been grieving for them.”<br />

Ms Rogan’s daughter Amanda Brown<br />

said her children Hugo and Emmett were<br />

very excited to finally be able to cuddle<br />

their grandparents.<br />

“My children nearly barrelled their<br />

grandma over, they’ve really struggled not<br />

being able to see them,” she said.<br />

In North <strong>Parra</strong>matta, Uniting Lilian<br />

Wells aged care welcomed guests for the<br />

first time since June.<br />

The demand to see residents is high for<br />

Lilian Wells, with families having to book<br />

in time slots to see their loved one.<br />

Vicki Micallef said seeing her father<br />

Charlie Deguara, was both emotional and<br />

a huge relief.<br />

“I normally see him three days a week so<br />

to go so long without that has been really<br />

hard for me,” she said.<br />

“With his dementia he doesn’t realise<br />

how long it has been, which is good for<br />

him but I’m so glad to be able to see him<br />

face-to-face again. Lilian Wells has been<br />

amazing in keeping us up to date, sending<br />

us photos and helping us keep connected<br />

with phone calls and FaceTime.”<br />

Locals with families residing in NSW’s<br />

regional areas will be able to visit each<br />

other again from November 1.<br />

Neighbourhood makeovers<br />

LORD<br />

MAYOR’S<br />

MESSAGE<br />

CR STEVEN<br />

ISSA<br />

As the <strong>Parra</strong>matta CBD undergoes an exciting<br />

period of change and improvement, so too are<br />

some of our local city centres. Council has kicked<br />

off construction on the $8.7 million upgrade of<br />

Good and Bridge streets in Granville, which is<br />

part of the NSW Government’s <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program.<br />

This much-anticipated makeover will see new<br />

pavement and street furniture installed, as well as<br />

misting devices and mature trees to help keep<br />

the area cool on hot summer days.<br />

‘Smart Street’ elements such as USB charging<br />

ports, smart bins and light installations, which<br />

will improve accessibility and connectivity, are<br />

also being installed. In addition, significant<br />

changes to traffic flow will take place, with Good<br />

Street set to become one-way between Cowper<br />

and Bridge streets. These upgrades aim to<br />

create a safer, more pedestrian-friendly area.<br />

Work has also begun on the $670,000 upgrade of<br />

Brodie Street in Rydalmere, which is being delivered<br />

through Council’s Better Neighbourhoods Program.<br />

This project will provide improved pedestrian<br />

and active transport connectivity, with wider<br />

footpaths, trees, and new paving and street<br />

furniture.<br />

A colourful mural by Australian artist Claire Foxton<br />

depicting some of Australia’s most beautiful<br />

native birds has been painted across a 40-metre<br />

shopfront on the street. It will face Rydalmere’s<br />

forthcoming <strong>Parra</strong>matta Light Rail station.<br />

Council advocates for its contributions<br />

plans<br />

As one of the fastest growing cities in the country,<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta’s success hinges on our ability to fund<br />

vital community infrastructure. That’s why Council<br />

is advocating for its infrastructure contributions<br />

plans to remain in place when the NSW<br />

Government makes changes to the development<br />

contributions bill.<br />

Over a number of years, Council has worked closely<br />

with the Department of Planning, Industry and<br />

Environment (DPIE); the community; landowners<br />

and developers to create a new planning scheme<br />

for the City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta, including the CBD<br />

Planning Proposal and Outside CBD Local<br />

Environmental Plan. We have also developed<br />

our own comprehensive contributions plans,<br />

so our community infrastructure is able to keep<br />

pace with development.<br />

Council’s contributions plan for developments<br />

outside the <strong>Parra</strong>matta CBD will help bring in more<br />

than $1.2 billion to fund community infrastructure<br />

over the next 20 years. Meanwhile, a separate<br />

contributions plan for the <strong>Parra</strong>matta CBD has<br />

also been developed and will be considered by<br />

Council for approval soon.<br />

Not only will these plans reduce the burden on<br />

ratepayers, they will make our City a brighter,<br />

more enjoyable place to live and work by providing<br />

funding for much-needed community infrastructure,<br />

including libraries, community centres, open spaces,<br />

footpaths and cycleways, as our City grows.<br />

New-look Eat Street<br />

I am pleased to confirm that<br />

the construction fences along<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta’s iconic ‘Eat Street’ have<br />

now been removed, as major <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Light Rail works along the popular dining and<br />

retail strip are completed.<br />

I encourage you to head into the City, support our<br />

local businesses, and check out the transformation<br />

that has taken place on Eat Street and throughout<br />

the CBD over the past 18 months. Tracks continue<br />

to be laid for the <strong>Parra</strong>matta Light Rail, and<br />

construction is well underway for 5 <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Square, the <strong>Parra</strong>matta Square public domain,<br />

and Phillip Street ‘Smart Street’.<br />

The rejuvenation of Western Sydney’s iconic dining<br />

destination is a game-changer for customers<br />

and businesses alike. The area is a key player in<br />

the City’s vibrant culture and growing economy,<br />

and local business are thrilled to be able to<br />

welcome customers back through their doors.<br />

Council has worked tirelessly to support our local<br />

business throughout lockdown, implementing<br />

a number of measures to ease the burden.<br />

These include waiving outdoor dining fees,<br />

easing parking restrictions and partnering with<br />

Transport for NSW to offer free parking.<br />

As Eat Street returns as a centre for connection,<br />

commerce and culture, I feel a real sense of pride<br />

and optimism returning to our City.<br />

Council is eager to continue working with the NSW<br />

Government to accomplish these goals and<br />

manage the City of <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s transformation<br />

over the next 20 years.<br />

Council facilities reopen<br />

Council facilities have started to reopen in line<br />

with the NSW Government’s public health orders.<br />

Parking drama looms<br />

Community urges Council not to ignore commuter parking concerns<br />

NICOLA BARTON<br />

Residents say a careful approach<br />

must be taken in the proposed<br />

sale of Lidcombe’s John Street car<br />

park to ensure a balance is struck for both<br />

shoppers and commuters.<br />

As part of the revitalisation of Lidcombe<br />

Town Centre, Cumberland City Council is<br />

considering selling the existing 55-space<br />

car park to make way for a tower, zoned for<br />

residential and commercial development.<br />

As part of the sale, the developer will be<br />

required to dedicate 150 parking spaces to<br />

the public, with the aim to encourage visitors<br />

and provide better parking turnover<br />

for local businesses.<br />

Recently Council held a community<br />

forum on the proposed sale where residents<br />

pleaded with Council to consider<br />

both shopper and commuter parking<br />

concerns.<br />

Members from the Restore Inner West<br />

Line & Save T3 Bankstown Line Community<br />

Action Group say there is a growing<br />

need to address commuter parking<br />

issues for Lidcombe Station, arising from<br />

changes to the Sydney Trains Network<br />

on the T7 Olympic Park Line and the T3<br />

Bankstown Line.<br />

Since <strong>October</strong> 2013, the Olympic Park to<br />

Central via Strathfield regular weekday<br />

service and the Bankstown to City via<br />

Regents Park/Strathfield service has been<br />

cancelled, resulting in more commuters<br />

interchanging at Lidcombe.<br />

From 2024, the Bankstown Line will be<br />

reduced to a shuttle between Lidcombe to<br />

Bankstown, resulting in the cancellation<br />

of all services from Birrong and Yagoona<br />

to the City.<br />

Both changes to the Sydney Trains<br />

Network will encourage commuters to<br />

drive to Lidcombe Station and catch a<br />

direct train, rather than experiencing<br />

multiple train interchanges.<br />

Community advocate and action group<br />

member Roydon Ng said unless the State<br />

Government was to restore the direct<br />

services, an influx of people driving to<br />

Lidcombe Station will cause further parking<br />

chaos.<br />

Mr Ng said the Council needed to better<br />

collaborate with the State Government to<br />

address these issues.<br />

The group are also calling on Transport<br />

for NSW, if the line is not restored, to invest<br />

in a Park N Ride facility or upgrade to the<br />

Bridge Street Carpark at Lidcombe.<br />

A Cumberland City Council spokesperson<br />

said: “Council continues to work<br />

with the State Government in ensuring<br />

that infrastructure and services support<br />

growth in the Lidcombe area, and will<br />

continue to advocate for improvements to<br />

transport infrastructure and services”.<br />

Other residents participating in the<br />

forum raised concerns around added<br />

congestion from high rise developments,<br />

as well as the prospect of residential overflow<br />

taking up public spaces.<br />

The Council spokesperson said rangers<br />

would patrol the site.<br />

Major flaw in new<br />

Pink Slip rules<br />

NICOLA BARTON<br />

In a world of food delivery apps, online<br />

groceries and meal kits, it’s safe to say the<br />

demand for convenience is ever-evolving.<br />

When it comes to your car, it’s no different;<br />

with a growing demand for mobile mechanics<br />

to take care of your service needs, without the<br />

pain of being late for work or organising a lift.<br />

In NSW it is mandatory for every vehicle that<br />

is older than five years to pass a yearly Safety<br />

Inspection (Pink Slip) for its registration,<br />

however until recently this was something that<br />

could only be carried out in a physical workshop.<br />

Following a trial which concluded last year,<br />

Transport for NSW brought about policy<br />

changes which permanently allow mobile Pink<br />

Slip services, also known as the ‘Mobile Safety<br />

Check Scheme’.<br />

The issue? Only those businesses who occupy<br />

a physical workshop can carry these out, meaning<br />

those who own stand-alone mobile businesses<br />

are excluded.<br />

Dundas Valley resident and Owner of Driveway<br />

Mobile Mechanics, Simon Mitchell, is<br />

taking a stand against the changes and said it is<br />

having an alarming impact on small businesses<br />

like his.<br />

LOCAL NEWS<br />

“There is no solution for stand-alone mobile<br />

mechanical businesses to be their own Authorised<br />

Inspection Station (AIS), even with the<br />

required examiner qualifications,” he said.<br />

“If a mobile mechanic with examiner qualifications<br />

wishes to carry out mobile Pink Slip<br />

inspections they would need to partner with a<br />

participating fixed premises AIS workshop and<br />

issue the Pink Slip on their behalf, essentially<br />

offering advertising for a competitor.<br />

“Legally you’re not allowed to charge more<br />

than $44 for a Pink Slip, so once the fixed station<br />

charges the mobile repairer, financially the<br />

mobile repairer is worse off.”<br />

However, a Transport for NSW spokesperson<br />

said the policy “ensures certainty for customers<br />

in a number of ways”.<br />

“Authorised Inspection Stations are required<br />

to abide by strict business rules around record<br />

keeping, storage of and access to records for<br />

compliance, audit and investigation purposes<br />

and information security, ensuring safety for<br />

customers,” the spokesperson said.<br />

“The association with a fixed station also<br />

allows for Transport for NSW representatives to<br />

have better oversight.”<br />

Mr Mitchell believes the guidelines are “baseless”.<br />

Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson.<br />

PARRAMATTA LOCAL NOMINATED FOR MAJOR AWARD<br />

Founder of injured worker not-for-profit<br />

Craig’s Table, Rosemary McKenzie-<br />

Ferguson has been named a finalist in the<br />

international Comp Laude Awards.<br />

The <strong>Parra</strong>matta resident is the only<br />

Australian finalist in the California-based<br />

awards and is being recognised for her<br />

advocacy and support efforts for the injured<br />

worker community.<br />

Ms McKenzie-Ferguson suffered a serious<br />

workplace injury in <strong>19</strong>94.<br />

It was from that experience she later<br />

established the program that has now<br />

assisted and empowered hundreds of<br />

Australians to strive for the future.<br />

Earlier this year she launched the inaugural<br />

‘Injured Worker Well-Being Week’,<br />

which ran from May 31 to June 4.<br />

Ms McKenzie-Ferguson said she felt<br />

honoured to be nominated and made a<br />

finalist for the Humanitarian Award.<br />

“To be a finalist... I can’t even put it into<br />

words; it is an honour,” she said.<br />

“For me this represents that the injured<br />

worker community of Australia is capable<br />

of doing really outstanding stuff.”<br />

The awards will be held on November 4.<br />

5 <strong>Parra</strong>matta Square.<br />

30,000 ratepayer dollars later, the City<br />

of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Council finally settled on<br />

a name for its new headquarters before<br />

the motion was rescinded to be debated<br />

again next week.<br />

Last Monday night Councillors voiced<br />

their opinions on the final options<br />

which include ‘Civic’ (referring to the<br />

former Civic Place), ‘Phive’ (meaning<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta hive) and ‘Prisma’ (referring<br />

to the shape and architecture of<br />

the building design).<br />

After a long, heated argument, ‘Phive’<br />

was successful, after it was voted for by<br />

Labor Councillors, Green representative<br />

Phil Bradley, Independent Lorraine<br />

Wearne and Liberal Benjamin Barrak.<br />

The $130 million development, which<br />

is currently referred to as 5 <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Square, is located in the heart of<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta’s historic civic precinct,<br />

nearby heritage-listed Town Hall<br />

since 1883, and was the previous home<br />

to Council and former <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Library. Once completed, it will be the<br />

home of Council’s new chambers as<br />

well as a library, community hall and<br />

Discovery Centre.<br />

Cr Wearne said the name was unique<br />

and brought about endless marketing<br />

opportunities.<br />

“We want something that is uniquely<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta,” she said.<br />

“There’s a Civic in every local<br />

mugtown with 15 occupants… Civic<br />

just isn’t going to cut it.”<br />

But Lord Mayor Steven Issa, Deputy<br />

Lord Mayor Michelle Garrard and<br />

remaining Liberal Councillors said<br />

they believed ‘Phive’ was too gimmicky,<br />

with some suggesting it better belonged<br />

in suburbs such as Newtown.<br />

“There’s quite a number of multicultural<br />

people, I think about 100<br />

different nationalities out here as well<br />

as traditional people in the greater<br />

west and they probably have difficulty<br />

pronouncing phive,’’ Councillor Bob<br />

Dwyer said.<br />

The Council went back to the drawing<br />

board on the name in August following<br />

some community pushback regarding<br />

the options at the time, which included<br />

‘Civic’ and ‘Civic Place’.<br />

The rescinded motion will now be<br />

debated at the upcoming Council<br />

meeting.


Save <strong>Parra</strong>matta Park<br />

Despite strong community objections, the NSW<br />

Government is pushing ahead with its plan to end<br />

independent management of <strong>Parra</strong>matta Park and<br />

other important parklands.<br />

The government has released an exposure draft of the Bill<br />

that will replace local trusts including the <strong>Parra</strong>matta Park<br />

Trust with a centralised agency, Greater Sydney Parklands.<br />

This Bill will erode protections and undermine funding of<br />

our heritage parklands. It also opens up these lands for<br />

further commercialisation.<br />

These lands are too precious to be left for successive<br />

governments to slice off bit by bit. If you are worried<br />

about what this will mean the scan the QR code or visit<br />

Support payments cut<br />

Now that 80% of NSW is fully vaccinated, the Morrison Government is cutting COVID support payments<br />

for workers and businesses down to zero.<br />

The Morrison Government has stopped funding JobSaver and businesses can only claim a fraction of the original<br />

payment until 30 November, when the Micro Business Support Grant will also end. The COVID-<strong>19</strong> Disaster Payment for<br />

workers will be cut off in a fortnight.<br />

While nobody expects these support payments to go on forever, hitting vaccination targets and easing restrictions does not<br />

mean people automatically get their jobs and businesses back. 1 in 10 payroll jobs in <strong>Parra</strong>matta have been lost since the start<br />

of lockdown and it’s estimated that 1 in 5 workers are claiming the Disaster Payment<br />

This Morrison Government is cutting support with no plan for <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s economic recovery. Easing<br />

restrictions does not mean the economic burden will be lifted. If you are worried about how these cuts will<br />

affect you or your business, please get in touch with my office. Scan the QR code for more information on the<br />

support still available or visit julieowens.com.au/covid<strong>19</strong><br />

Local seniors locked out of aged care<br />

The Royal Commission into Aged Care recommended urgent action to clear home care package waiting<br />

lists, which have been stuck at 100,000 for years.<br />

But the Morrison Government has only committed to fund 40,000 new places a year for 2 years, meaning thousands of<br />

seniors will be left waiting for care they urgently need.<br />

The Royal Commission also found that seniors from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds were struggling to<br />

access aged care services and all too often end up with services that don’t meet their language or cultural needs<br />

and rely on family to deliver meals they can eat, or communicate with carers.<br />

Around half of <strong>Parra</strong>matta’s seniors speak a language other than English - nationwide its around one in<br />

four - but the Morrison Government has only announced around $20 million in new funding for specialist<br />

services. If this is affecting you or your loved ones, please contact my office.<br />

TAFE offers solutions<br />

Making dreams come true: Plenty of options available for aspiring teachers<br />

NICOLA BARTON<br />

Seven Hills resident Jasmine Ries is<br />

living proof you can be successful<br />

without a high ATAR, as she pursues<br />

her dream career of becoming a primary<br />

school teacher.<br />

Whilst Ms Ries didn’t get the HSC results<br />

she hoped for, she was able to complete<br />

a Certificate III in Education Support at<br />

TAFE NSW earlier this year and has now<br />

progressed to a Certificate IV in Education<br />

Support.<br />

Her placement completed at <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Public School has already led to part-time<br />

work.<br />

Ms Ries said she plans to get her primary<br />

school teaching qualifications once she<br />

graduates from TAFE NSW.<br />

“TAFE NSW has absolutely given me the<br />

skills I need to do my job and it got me<br />

work so quickly, it’s fantastic,” she said.<br />

“I’d already built relationships with<br />

the students and teachers at <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

Public School so it was fantastic that I<br />

didn’t have to say goodbye and could<br />

continue building on those connections.<br />

“The TAFE NSW work placement has<br />

Seven Hills resident Jasmine Ries is following her dreams of working in education.<br />

affirmed how much I love working in<br />

education and that I’ve made the right<br />

career choice.”<br />

Ms Ries said she’s always wanted to be<br />

a teacher since working as a martial arts<br />

instructor for children when she was in<br />

high school.<br />

According to the Federal Government’s<br />

Job Outlook agency, education support is<br />

a large workforce that is expected to see<br />

continued strong growth, with employment<br />

numbers predicted to reach 113,600<br />

jobs nationally by 2025.<br />

TAFE NSW education support teacher<br />

Sharon Crowther said she expects to see<br />

a further spike in demand as students<br />

return to school when COVID-<strong>19</strong> restrictions<br />

ease.<br />

“I think we will see an increased need for<br />

education support services because there<br />

will be children who need extra support as<br />

we move out of this pandemic and back to<br />

face-to-face learning,” she said.<br />

“Many schools already need education<br />

support workers so there is a lot of casual<br />

part-time work available.”<br />

Ms Crowther said education support can<br />

be a flexible industry to work in.<br />

“It’s an industry that really suits people<br />

who have children and want to work<br />

part-time, and it can provide a really good<br />

segue for students who want to become a<br />

teacher down the track,” she said.<br />

“If you enjoy working with children and<br />

giving children with challenges a boost,<br />

then it can be a very rewarding career that<br />

offers great employment opportunities.”<br />

Why cyber security should be a<br />

priority for you and your business<br />

The leak of a database containing<br />

the records of Apple HealthKit<br />

and Google FitBit users, as well<br />

as several other brands of fitness tracker<br />

products, has highlighted the critical<br />

importance of securing customer databases,<br />

potentially putting more than 61<br />

million people – including an unknown<br />

number in Australia – at risk of compromise<br />

by opportunistic cyber criminals.<br />

It is owned by GetHealth, a New Yorkbased<br />

provider of health data services<br />

and includes 61,053,956 total records.<br />

The leak compromised the following<br />

information: names, weight, height,<br />

dates of birth, gender, and location.<br />

Aside from Apple HealthKit and<br />

Google FitBit, the leak also contained<br />

information from other devices, such as<br />

23andMe, Life Fitness, Daily Mile, FatSecret,<br />

GoogleFit, Jawbone UP, MapMyFitness,<br />

Microsoft, Misfit, MapMyWalk,<br />

Moves App, PredictBGL, Sony Lifelog,<br />

Strava, VitaDock, Runkeeper, Withings,<br />

Android Sensor, and S Health.<br />

With hackers now targeting smaller<br />

businesses and individuals, the data you<br />

hold with your customers’ details could<br />

be compromised.<br />

How do you know if your data has been<br />

Cumberland Council Elections<br />

Saturday 4th December <strong>2021</strong><br />

compromised? If you want to know if<br />

any of your data has been compromised,<br />

not just from this info breach but others<br />

as well, visit haveibeenpwned.com and<br />

enter the information you want to search<br />

for. You can check if your email or phone<br />

number has been included in a data<br />

breach. The website will also provide<br />

information on said data breaches.<br />

All data breaches should be reported to<br />

the Office of the Australian Information<br />

Commissioner (OAIC). This is according<br />

to The Privacy Act <strong>19</strong>88 designed to<br />

protect the privacy of individuals and<br />

their personal information.<br />

If your data has been compromised,<br />

you should:<br />

• Change your passwords immediately.<br />

• Enable 2FA on all online programs.<br />

• Be cautious with emails from larger<br />

companies you many have visited<br />

online. They could be phishing<br />

emails.<br />

• Most of all, implement safe Internet<br />

practices to minimise the damage of<br />

data breaches.<br />

Whilst cyber security is often not a<br />

priority for small businesses, it can cause<br />

a lot of damage if not implemented.<br />

CITY OF PARRAMATTA<br />

<strong>2021</strong> NSW LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS<br />

Saturday 4 September <strong>2021</strong><br />

Thinking of nominating as a candidate for your local Council?<br />

If you’re considering nominating as a candidate for the <strong>2021</strong> NSW Local Government elections, you should read this notice. It provides general<br />

guidance about the process of nominating, and candidates’ obligations and responsibilities. Prospective candidates should seek their own<br />

independent legal advice if they are unsure whether they are eligible to run for public office in a local council or how the law applies to their<br />

specific circumstances.<br />

Nominate as a Mayor or Councillor<br />

To nominate as a Mayor or Councillor you must lodge a nomination<br />

form, either by using the Electoral Commission’s online nomination<br />

system or delivering it to the Returning Officer.<br />

Nominating involves:<br />

• Read the instructions on the nomination form carefully – all parts must<br />

be completed.<br />

• You may be nominated by either a registered political party, or by<br />

two electors enrolled in the local government area or ward for which<br />

you are being nominated. For example, if you are being nominated as<br />

a candidate for a ward your nominators must be enrolled in that ward.<br />

• Candidates must also complete a candidate information sheet and<br />

statistical information sheet.<br />

• A nomination deposit must be paid.<br />

Grouping of Councillor candidates on the ballot paper<br />

Two or more Councillor candidates may form a group on the ballot<br />

paper, and where eligible, request a group voting square (box above<br />

the line) be printed on the ballot paper for the group.<br />

In addition to lodging the nomination form, these candidates must<br />

also lodge a Request to form a group form.<br />

Nomination deposit<br />

All candidates must pay a nomination deposit of $125 each to the<br />

NSW Electoral Commission.<br />

Where candidates also lodge a Request to form a group, the deposit<br />

is capped at $625 for a group of five candidates or more.<br />

If using the online nominations system, the deposit must be paid by<br />

either MasterCard or VISA.<br />

If using paper nomination forms, the nomination deposit must be paid<br />

by cash or bank or building society cheque.<br />

Start your nomination now<br />

The NSW Electoral Commission’s online nominations system is now<br />

available at elections.nsw.gov.au You can start the process of<br />

nominating online now.<br />

Alternatively, paper nomination forms are available by calling the<br />

Commission’s candidate helpdesk on 1300 022 011.<br />

Candidates who previously prepared a nomination form<br />

Following the postponement of the elections to Saturday 4 December<br />

<strong>2021</strong>, it was determined that any nomination or grouping forms created<br />

for the postponed Saturday 4 September <strong>2021</strong> elections will need to<br />

be redone.<br />

This decision was made to ensure information submitted in nomination<br />

forms is accurate and current.<br />

Lodge your nomination<br />

Candidates may lodge their nominations and pay the deposit online.<br />

However, if using paper nomination forms, you must lodge your<br />

nomination and deposit with the Returning Officer for the council<br />

area in which you intend to stand as a candidate. Returning Officer<br />

office locations can be found at elections.nsw.gov.au/lge21<br />

You are encouraged to start preparing your nomination form – and<br />

grouping form if applicable – now.<br />

The NSW Electoral Commission strongly encourages you to lodge your<br />

nomination online. As the public health situation can change quickly<br />

in any LGA, locations at which a nomination can be lodged in person<br />

ADVERTISEMENT<br />

may be closed in accordance with public health orders or if it becomes<br />

necessary due to risks associated with COVID-<strong>19</strong>.<br />

Nomination forms, grouping forms and nomination deposits must<br />

be lodged between Monday 25 <strong>October</strong> and 12 noon, Wednesday<br />

3 November <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

Late nominations will not be accepted.<br />

Registration for electoral funding purposes<br />

NSW has strict laws that regulate the election campaign finances of<br />

political parties, candidates and groups at the election. These include<br />

requirements to operate a campaign account, and to record and<br />

disclose political donations and electoral expenditure. In addition,<br />

there are caps on political donations and electoral expenditure.<br />

Prior to being nominated, candidates and groups who wish to accept<br />

political donations or pay for electoral expenditure must first apply to<br />

the NSW Electoral Commission to be registered for electoral funding<br />

purposes. Only once registered is a candidate or group allowed to<br />

accept political donations and pay for electoral expenditure.<br />

Candidates and groups can apply to be registered through the NSW<br />

Electoral Commission’s new online registration and disclosure system,<br />

Funding and Disclosure Online. Forms are also available on the<br />

Commission’s website.<br />

Applications for registration for electoral funding purposes close on<br />

Wednesday 3 November <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

From Thursday 4 November <strong>2021</strong>, nominated candidates and groups<br />

that have not registered before being nominated are taken to be<br />

registered and will take on significant legal obligations for recordkeeping<br />

and making disclosures. Even already-registered candidates<br />

and groups who decide not to nominate will have some ongoing<br />

electoral funding law obligations.<br />

To learn more go to elections.nsw.gov.au/funding-and-disclosure<br />

Enquiries about being registered and the laws that apply to<br />

political donations and electoral expenditure should be sent to<br />

fdc@elections.nsw.gov.au<br />

Candidate Handbook and webinars<br />

A Candidate Handbook will be made available on the NSW Electoral<br />

Commission’s website. Educational webinars which assist candidates<br />

in navigating the process are also available.<br />

Ballot paper draw<br />

The Returning Officer will formally announce the candidates and<br />

conduct a draw to determine the order of groups (where applicable)<br />

and candidate names on the ballot paper at the office of the relevant<br />

Returning Officer at 10am, Thursday 4 November <strong>2021</strong>.<br />

Observing the ballot paper draw will be subject to the capacity of the<br />

Returning Officer’s office and any NSW Health public health orders in<br />

effect at that time.<br />

CRAFTY CREATIONS<br />

MAKE FOR GREAT TV<br />

EMILY FESZCZUK<br />

The pandemic has inspired people<br />

to complete exciting projects<br />

and a new creative television<br />

show takes it to the next<br />

level.<br />

‘Making It Australia’ is an epic DIY competition<br />

like Masterchef but for crafters. It<br />

airs on Channel 10.<br />

Comedian, writer and panellist on ‘The<br />

Project’, Susie Youssef is joined by fellow<br />

cheeky comedian, Harley Breen to host<br />

the show as 13 amateur and professional<br />

craftspeople compete to win $100,000.<br />

Full of crafty commentary, Susie told<br />

<strong>Parra</strong> <strong>News</strong> she was in awe of the contestants’<br />

creations.<br />

“I think it is quite a gentle, funny and collaborative<br />

show and also a tribute to all<br />

those people who are makers… they see<br />

stuff on the side of the road, they want to<br />

recycle and make things,” Susie said.<br />

“90 per cent of the show was me looking<br />

at how their brains work to come up with<br />

things and it was exciting to watch people<br />

from different walks of life with different<br />

skills.”<br />

With challenges ranging from sewing to<br />

woodworking, paper crafts to pottery, and<br />

carving to crocheting, Susie admitted she<br />

preferred to watch.<br />

“I love craft but am more of a spectator.<br />

I dabble, I do some origami and love knitting…<br />

I tried crocheting this year but that<br />

didn’t work out,” she said.<br />

“I do love woodwork and was inspired by<br />

some of the makers and what they did but I<br />

would not describe myself as crafty.”<br />

Susie was more than willing to jump into<br />

mischief with her co-host Harley Breen<br />

though.<br />

“We got to run amok and watch these<br />

amazing people work and distract them<br />

with jokes which was an absolute ball,” she<br />

said.<br />

“Harley is like the tallest big brother I<br />

could ever ask for and I couldn’t imagine<br />

doing it with anyone else.<br />

“He was a total dreamboat to work with<br />

but don’t tell him I said that.”<br />

With lockdowns reigniting some people’s<br />

hobbies, the show aims to encourage others<br />

to rediscover the joy of making things<br />

by hand.<br />

“I think having more downtime than expected<br />

has influenced a lot of people in<br />

general and there is a movement towards<br />

reusing materials and thinking about the<br />

environment,” she said.<br />

“It makes you more mindful and allows<br />

you to be present plus it is fun and you<br />

don’t have to be any good which is the best<br />

part of craft.”<br />

‘Making It Australia’ airs on Saturdays<br />

at 6pm on 10. You can catch up on past<br />

episodes on 10Play.<br />

The Last Duel<br />

Ron’s Gone Wrong<br />

2 hours, 33 minutes 1 hour, 36 minutes<br />

parra news » Tuesday, <strong>October</strong> <strong>19</strong>, <strong>2021</strong><br />

From Twentieth Century Studios<br />

and visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott<br />

comes ‘The Last Duel’, a gripping tale of<br />

betrayal and vengeance set against the<br />

brutality and female oppression of 14th<br />

century France.<br />

The historical epic, which is based on<br />

actual events depicted in The Last Duel<br />

by Eric Jager, stars Oscar winner Matt<br />

Damon and two-time Academy Award<br />

nominee Adam Driver as quarrelling<br />

lords, both of noble birth, whose grievances<br />

must be resolved in a duel to the<br />

death.<br />

The film, which also stars Oscar<br />

winner Ben Affleck and Emmy winner<br />

Jodie Comer, is directed by four-time<br />

Academy Award nominee Ridley Scott<br />

from a screenplay by Affleck, Damon<br />

and Oscar nominee Nicole Holofcener.<br />

‘The Last Duel’ is produced by Scott,<br />

Kevin Walsh, Jennifer Fox and Holofcener.<br />

‘The Last Duel’ opened on <strong>October</strong> 14.<br />

‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’ is the story of<br />

Barney, a socially awkward middleschooler<br />

and Ron, his new walking,<br />

talking, digitally-connected device,<br />

which is supposed to be his “Best Friend<br />

out of the Box”.<br />

Ron’s hilarious malfunctions set<br />

against the backdrop of the social<br />

media age, launch them into an actionpacked<br />

journey in which boy and robot<br />

come to terms with the wonderful<br />

messiness of true friendship.<br />

‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’ features the<br />

voices of Zach Galifianakis, Jack Dylan<br />

Grazer, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms,<br />

Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Kylie<br />

Cantrall, Ricardo Hurtado, Marcus<br />

Scribner, and Thomas Barbusca.<br />

The film is directed by Pixar veteran<br />

Jean-Philippe Vine and Locksmith<br />

co-founder Sarah Smith with Octavio<br />

Rodriguez co-directing.<br />

‘Ron’s Gone Wrong’ is due to open on<br />

<strong>October</strong> 28.<br />

AUTO<br />

LandCruiser’s next step<br />

New chapter for one of Toyota’s most iconic brands as 300 Series lands<br />

NATHAN TAYLOR<br />

Toyota has launched its all-new<br />

LandCruiser 300 Series, kicking off<br />

the next chapter in the legendary<br />

off-roader’s storied history.<br />

Newly constructed from the ground up,<br />

the all-new 300 Series takes the capability,<br />

durability and reliability of the iconic<br />

LandCruiser nameplate to new levels,<br />

while also making advancements in<br />

safety, comfort, performance and technology.<br />

Key upgrades include a new 3.3-litre<br />

V6 twin-turbo diesel engine, a bold new<br />

exterior design underpinned by the<br />

Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA)<br />

platform, and advanced driver assistance<br />

technologies to provide superb on-road<br />

performance and unmatched off-road<br />

capability.<br />

The LandCruiser 300 Series range also<br />

offers customers more choice than ever,<br />

with two new flagship variants – the luxury<br />

Sahara ZX and the off-road-focused GR<br />

Sport – joining the core GX, GXL, VX and<br />

Sahara range.<br />

The Sahara ZX offers unmatched levels<br />

of comfort and style for LandCruiser<br />

buyers, while the GR Sport is the most<br />

off-road capable LandCruiser yet with its<br />

world-first electronic Kinetic Dynamic<br />

Suspension System (e-KDSS) stabiliser bar<br />

control system, and front and rear locking<br />

differentials as standard.<br />

The LandCruiser 300 Series can be<br />

identified by its strong design language,<br />

combining trademark LandCruiser<br />

features with a new, powerful and emotive<br />

styling that is equal parts form and function.<br />

Inside, the LandCruiser’s cabin blends<br />

luxurious style with functionality, and<br />

increased space and flexibility, ensuring<br />

long and taxing journeys through the<br />

Australian wilderness are done in utmost<br />

comfort.<br />

Toyota Australia Vice President Sales,<br />

Marketing and Franchise Operations,<br />

Sean Hanley, said the all-new LandCruiser<br />

300 Series would further strengthen the<br />

reputation of the LandCruiser in the tough<br />

Australian conditions.<br />

“Ever since it was imported into Australia<br />

to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro<br />

Scheme in the <strong>19</strong>50s, the LandCruiser has<br />

become synonymous with tackling the<br />

The LandCruiser 300 Series is expected to be a big seller.<br />

harshest conditions our country has to<br />

offer,” he said.<br />

“Equally at home in the school car park<br />

or the middle of the outback, the new 300<br />

Series LandCruiser takes the comfort,<br />

safety and off-road ability of our flagship<br />

SUV to new heights.<br />

“We fully expect this new generation to<br />

carry on the stellar legacy of the Land-<br />

Cruiser in Australia.”<br />

Matildas ready to rock <strong>Parra</strong>matta<br />

NATHAN TAYLOR<br />

A<br />

crowd of more than 22,000 fully vaccinated<br />

fans will be on hand for this<br />

Saturday’s Matildas v Brazil game in<br />

<strong>Parra</strong>matta after the NSW Government agreed<br />

to increase the venue capacity of CommBank<br />

Stadium to 75 per cent.<br />

Football Australia CEO James Johnson was<br />

delighted with last week’s announcement,<br />

which will see the Matildas play on home soil<br />

for the first time in over 18 months.<br />

“Today’s announcement to increase the<br />

venue capacity at CommBank Stadium for the<br />

Commonwealth Bank Matildas’ two-match<br />

series against Brazil next week to 75 per cent of<br />

the venue’s 30,000 capacity, is another groundbreaking<br />

announcement for Australian football<br />

following the NSW Government’s approval<br />

of our submission to host three matches in<br />

Sydney within the 14-day mandatory quarantine<br />

period,” he said.<br />

“This now means that more NSW-based<br />

fans will be able to see their favourite national<br />

women’s team live once again, and also paves<br />

the way for Sydney to host the Socceroos’<br />

crucial home AFC Asian Qualifier – Road to<br />

Qatar match against Saudi Arabia on November<br />

11.<br />

The Matildas will play on home soil for the first time in over 18 months this weekend.<br />

“The Commonwealth Bank Matildas are also<br />

presented with an opportunity to break their<br />

last attendance record set at the same venue<br />

back in November 20<strong>19</strong>, when 20,029 fans<br />

attended.<br />

“We are delighted that Australian football<br />

has paved the way for international sport to be<br />

played in Australia under these new arrangements<br />

and that we can continue to support the<br />

NSW Government in its efforts to reopen the<br />

State.”<br />

NSW Sports Minister Natalie Ward said the<br />

exemption was signed off last Wednesday<br />

night, allowing the crowd to be boosted from<br />

5000 to 22,500 for the matches on Saturday,<br />

<strong>October</strong> 23 and Tuesday, <strong>October</strong> 26.<br />

“We’re all desperate to see Sydney regain<br />

its rightful crown as the sporting capital of<br />

Australia and I can’t think of a better showcase<br />

than the upcoming Matildas versus Brazil<br />

blockbuster games,” she said.<br />

“Robust COVID-safe plans mean crowd<br />

numbers can be more than quadrupled from<br />

our original expectations, which is a fantastic<br />

result for our football fans.<br />

“We’ve all missed the roar of the crowds and<br />

I can’t wait to hear the sound of Matildas fans<br />

cheering on their heroes. Sydney is sending a<br />

message to the world – we are back.”<br />

Tickets are available through Ticketek.<br />
