A Message from Mayor Steve Christou

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

Pensioners score extra free day at our pools

Pensioners can enjoy a second free day at all

council-owned swimming pools. We’ve always

offered free entry to pensioners on Tuesday,

but now they can enjoy free entry on Thursdays

too. The motion, put forward by our new Deputy

Mayor Councillor Michael Zaiter, and seconded by

Councillor Joseph Rahme, was supported by all


This is a step in the right direction and a move

I’m proud of considering more than 15% of the

Cumberland population is over the age of 60 and

that’s set to grow over the next decade.

Seniors make an enormous contribution to

Cumberland and their vulnerability has been

heightened during the pandemic.

We’re pleased to offer a wide range of

opportunities that enable their continued activity

and participation in community life. For the ageing

population, exercise has been shown to prevent

disease, lower the risk of falls, improve mental

health and well-being and strengthen social ties

and cognitive function. Opening the doors to our

pools after months of being at home is a great way

to support this.

Visit our website or contact Council to find out

more about pool operating hours, and to learn

more about the full range of services for pensioners

and seniors:

Year Award now open

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

You asked, we listened

It’s important for us that our residents are getting

the most out of eased restrictions as we follow

the roadmap to recovery. We’ve been receiving

feedback to reopen our community centres a bit

earlier than we’d planned. That’s why most of our

community centres and facilities have now opened

their doors, with hirers able to book in line with the

latest Public Health Orders.

We know these spaces host community groups,

outreach programs, a range of classes and

functions. I’m pleased to see our community

getting back to doing the things they love.

Restaurants roar back to life as eager locals enjoy eased COVID restrictions

again, it’s been super busy and the support

from the community has been amazing,”

he said.

“You can really feel it in the air that

everyone is excited to be out and we’re a

place that is perfect for people to come,

chill out and enjoy themselves.”

Relatively new on the Wentworth Point

scene, The Dancing Bear is a vibrant and

trendy bar and restaurant, specialising

in unique cocktails and tapas-style share

plates, with a middle eastern twist.

The Dancing Bear only opened its doors

in March, trading for about three months

before lockdown forced them to close.

“I’m a Wentworth Point resident and

there was never a real ‘local’ or a nice place

to have a drink, so after the last lockdown

people back together and decided to open

The Dancing Bear,” he said.

“We did expect for this [lockdown] to

happen, it was just a matter of when for us,

so we were ready to adapt with takeaway

cocktails, wraps and grazing platters.

“So many locals came down to support

us before we had to officially close the

doors, which was really humbling.

“We’ve now launched a new menu and

added six new cocktails to our list. We

have 17 different cocktails now... we press

our own lemonade; we really try to put an

emphasis on the experience.”

population would comply with the

there have been media reports of

others abusing staff over denial of entry.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has

urged residents of NSW to show patience

and respect.

Parra Matters

Is Parramatta no longer part of western

Sydney? It feels almost sacrilegious to say

it. Literally, of course, Parramatta is west

of everything traditionally associated

with Sydney.

Increasingly, though, we are a global,

multicultural city. Parramatta is the place

where our people choose to be. We have

a soft power all our own. There’s no need

to define ourselves in relation to a distant

harbour or anywhere else.

As we approach the post-pandemic era,

I believe this thinking will become more


NSW Premier Neville Wran once campaigned

on a theme of hospital “Beds to

the West”. Prime Minister Julia Gillard famously

set up camp at the Rooty Hill RSL

to connect with the people of the region.

Even today, questions of resourcing and

unequal access to services remain important.

But consider the journey of the Wests

Magpies, one of rugby league’s foundation

clubs. Their home was initially Pratten

Park, Ashfield; then Lidcombe Oval;

then Orana Park, Campbelltown. Merging

with the Balmain Tigers in 1999, the

Magpies showed that the question of

what constitutes the west has become

increasingly fluid – and meaningless. Is


Alan Mascarenhas


The changing face of the west



Entertainment ....................19-27

Ryde part of western Sydney? What about

East Hills or Castle Hill?

The other stereotype we should challenge

is that the west is an area of grievance.

The old stereotype of the fibrodwellers

versus the silvertails no longer

cuts it. Yes, there remain pockets of real

poverty. But riding off a construction

boom, an enterprising tradie can earn as

much as a stockbroker. And our homegrown

entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors,

carers, IT specialists and data scientists

are improving society each day.

The NSW Government has now stopped

calling the 12 councils subject to the

toughest lockdown restrictions “areas of


Others, such as the Mayor of Fairfield,

urge it to go further and stop generically

labelling areas as western and southwestern


Today, as Sydney sprawls outward,

it’s become easier to think of the Inner

West encompassing not just Strathfield

but Auburn, Granville, Canterbury and

Bankstown. Other parts of the city have

distinctive identities, say, the Northern

Beaches or Sutherland Shire. Now, the

suggestion is that Fairfield, Liverpool,

Campbelltown, Wollondilly and Penrith

should be rebadged as something like

Business Directory.......28-29


Sport ...........................................31-32

“The Parklands” – recognising their residential

character is set against wide open

spaces, mountains and lakes.

A publicity stunt? Perhaps, but it correctly

recognises the pandemic has

forged a new local civic pride. A Delta

outbreak that started in Bondi hit our

communities hard. But our workers kept

much of the city going. And like Londoners

during the Blitz, we made sacrifices,

got vaccinated and proved our resilience.

We don’t resent the rest of the city that

lounged on beaches while we did our

best to follow the health orders. But we

certainly don’t feel inferior.

So, to answer my original question, yes

Parramatta is literally part of “western

Sydney”. But less and less do I think it

adequately captures our aspirations, our

potential to lure visitors, even our plans

to partner with Westmead in establishing

a specialisation in biotechnology and

life sciences to rival Copenhagen and

Boston. Liverpool, with its Health and

Academic Precinct, is also considering its

economic identity and future anew.

It’s time to recognise that all of Sydney’s

suburban centres have a confident role to

play in the mosaic of our city.

Happy tears for families

Months in the making: Reunions on the agenda thanks to end of lockdown


It was all smiles and some tears last

week, as locals reunited with loved

ones for the first time in over 100 days.

Some took the opportunity to reconnect

over a bite to eat, others visited family

members in aged care; regardless, there’s

no doubt it will be a moment that will be

remembered forever.

Winston Hills residents Debbi and Todd

Rogan reunited with their daughter and

grandchildren last Monday after three


Despite only living a few kilometres

apart, due to being zoned in different

Local Government Areas, they were

unable to see each other.

Whilst they kept in touch as much as

possible over Zoom and FaceTime, Ms

Rogan said it’s been extremely difficult

and was relieved to finally be reunited.

“I am so excited, I can’t believe how much

my grandsons have grown,” she said.

“It’s been so hard to not just drive down

the road and see them but because we are

in different LGAs we weren’t allowed; I’ve

honestly been grieving for them.”

Ms Rogan’s daughter Amanda Brown

said her children Hugo and Emmett were

very excited to finally be able to cuddle

their grandparents.

“My children nearly barrelled their

grandma over, they’ve really struggled not

being able to see them,” she said.

In North Parramatta, Uniting Lilian

Wells aged care welcomed guests for the

first time since June.

The demand to see residents is high for

Lilian Wells, with families having to book

in time slots to see their loved one.

Vicki Micallef said seeing her father

Charlie Deguara, was both emotional and

a huge relief.

“I normally see him three days a week so

to go so long without that has been really

hard for me,” she said.

“With his dementia he doesn’t realise

how long it has been, which is good for

him but I’m so glad to be able to see him

face-to-face again. Lilian Wells has been

amazing in keeping us up to date, sending

us photos and helping us keep connected

with phone calls and FaceTime.”

Locals with families residing in NSW’s

regional areas will be able to visit each

other again from November 1.

Neighbourhood makeovers






As the Parramatta CBD undergoes an exciting

period of change and improvement, so too are

some of our local city centres. Council has kicked

off construction on the $8.7 million upgrade of

Good and Bridge streets in Granville, which is

part of the NSW Government’s Parramatta

Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program.

This much-anticipated makeover will see new

pavement and street furniture installed, as well as

misting devices and mature trees to help keep

the area cool on hot summer days.

‘Smart Street’ elements such as USB charging

ports, smart bins and light installations, which

will improve accessibility and connectivity, are

also being installed. In addition, significant

changes to traffic flow will take place, with Good

Street set to become one-way between Cowper

and Bridge streets. These upgrades aim to

create a safer, more pedestrian-friendly area.

Work has also begun on the $670,000 upgrade of

Brodie Street in Rydalmere, which is being delivered

through Council’s Better Neighbourhoods Program.

This project will provide improved pedestrian

and active transport connectivity, with wider

footpaths, trees, and new paving and street


A colourful mural by Australian artist Claire Foxton

depicting some of Australia’s most beautiful

native birds has been painted across a 40-metre

shopfront on the street. It will face Rydalmere’s

forthcoming Parramatta Light Rail station.

Council advocates for its contributions


As one of the fastest growing cities in the country,

Parramatta’s success hinges on our ability to fund

vital community infrastructure. That’s why Council

is advocating for its infrastructure contributions

plans to remain in place when the NSW

Government makes changes to the development

contributions bill.

Over a number of years, Council has worked closely

with the Department of Planning, Industry and

Environment (DPIE); the community; landowners

and developers to create a new planning scheme

for the City of Parramatta, including the CBD

Planning Proposal and Outside CBD Local

Environmental Plan. We have also developed

our own comprehensive contributions plans,

so our community infrastructure is able to keep

pace with development.

Council’s contributions plan for developments

outside the Parramatta CBD will help bring in more

than $1.2 billion to fund community infrastructure

over the next 20 years. Meanwhile, a separate

contributions plan for the Parramatta CBD has

also been developed and will be considered by

Council for approval soon.

Not only will these plans reduce the burden on

ratepayers, they will make our City a brighter,

more enjoyable place to live and work by providing

funding for much-needed community infrastructure,

including libraries, community centres, open spaces,

footpaths and cycleways, as our City grows.

New-look Eat Street

I am pleased to confirm that

the construction fences along

Parramatta’s iconic ‘Eat Street’ have

now been removed, as major Parramatta

Light Rail works along the popular dining and

retail strip are completed.

I encourage you to head into the City, support our

local businesses, and check out the transformation

that has taken place on Eat Street and throughout

the CBD over the past 18 months. Tracks continue

to be laid for the Parramatta Light Rail, and

construction is well underway for 5 Parramatta

Square, the Parramatta Square public domain,

and Phillip Street ‘Smart Street’.

The rejuvenation of Western Sydney’s iconic dining

destination is a game-changer for customers

and businesses alike. The area is a key player in

the City’s vibrant culture and growing economy,

and local business are thrilled to be able to

welcome customers back through their doors.

Council has worked tirelessly to support our local

business throughout lockdown, implementing

a number of measures to ease the burden.

These include waiving outdoor dining fees,

easing parking restrictions and partnering with

Transport for NSW to offer free parking.

As Eat Street returns as a centre for connection,

commerce and culture, I feel a real sense of pride

and optimism returning to our City.

Council is eager to continue working with the NSW

Government to accomplish these goals and

manage the City of Parramatta’s transformation

over the next 20 years.

Council facilities reopen

Council facilities have started to reopen in line

Parking drama looms

Community urges Council not to ignore commuter parking concerns


Residents say a careful approach

must be taken in the proposed

sale of Lidcombe’s John Street car

park to ensure a balance is struck for both

shoppers and commuters.

As part of the revitalisation of Lidcombe

Town Centre, Cumberland City Council is

considering selling the existing 55-space

car park to make way for a tower, zoned for

residential and commercial development.

As part of the sale, the developer will be

required to dedicate 150 parking spaces to

the public, with the aim to encourage visitors

and provide better parking turnover

for local businesses.

Recently Council held a community

forum on the proposed sale where residents

pleaded with Council to consider

both shopper and commuter parking


Members from the Restore Inner West

Line & Save T3 Bankstown Line Community

Action Group say there is a growing

need to address commuter parking

issues for Lidcombe Station, arising from

changes to the Sydney Trains Network

on the T7 Olympic Park Line and the T3

Bankstown Line.

Since October 2013, the Olympic Park to

Central via Strathfield regular weekday

service and the Bankstown to City via

Regents Park/Strathfield service has been

cancelled, resulting in more commuters

interchanging at Lidcombe.

From 2024, the Bankstown Line will be

reduced to a shuttle between Lidcombe to

Bankstown, resulting in the cancellation

of all services from Birrong and Yagoona

to the City.

Both changes to the Sydney Trains

Network will encourage commuters to

drive to Lidcombe Station and catch a

direct train, rather than experiencing

multiple train interchanges.

Community advocate and action group

member Roydon Ng said unless the State

Government was to restore the direct

services, an influx of people driving to

Lidcombe Station will cause further parking


Mr Ng said the Council needed to better

collaborate with the State Government to

address these issues.

The group are also calling on Transport

for NSW, if the line is not restored, to invest

in a Park N Ride facility or upgrade to the

Bridge Street Carpark at Lidcombe.

A Cumberland City Council spokesperson

said: “Council continues to work

with the State Government in ensuring

that infrastructure and services support

growth in the Lidcombe area, and will

continue to advocate for improvements to

transport infrastructure and services”.

Other residents participating in the

forum raised concerns around added

congestion from high rise developments,

as well as the prospect of residential overflow

taking up public spaces.

The Council spokesperson said rangers

would patrol the site.

Major flaw in new

Pink Slip rules


In a world of food delivery apps, online

groceries and meal kits, it’s safe to say the

demand for convenience is ever-evolving.

When it comes to your car, it’s no different;

with a growing demand for mobile mechanics

to take care of your service needs, without the

pain of being late for work or organising a lift.

In NSW it is mandatory for every vehicle that

is older than five years to pass a yearly Safety

Inspection (Pink Slip) for its registration,

however until recently this was something that

could only be carried out in a physical workshop.

Following a trial which concluded last year,

Transport for NSW brought about policy

changes which permanently allow mobile Pink

Slip services, also known as the ‘Mobile Safety

Check Scheme’.

The issue? Only those businesses who occupy

a physical workshop can carry these out, meaning

those who own stand-alone mobile businesses

are excluded.

Dundas Valley resident and Owner of Driveway

Mobile Mechanics, Simon Mitchell, is

taking a stand against the changes and said it is

having an alarming impact on small businesses

like his.


“There is no solution for stand-alone mobile

mechanical businesses to be their own Authorised

Inspection Station (AIS), even with the

required examiner qualifications,” he said.

“If a mobile mechanic with examiner qualifications

wishes to carry out mobile Pink Slip

inspections they would need to partner with a

participating fixed premises AIS workshop and

issue the Pink Slip on their behalf, essentially

offering advertising for a competitor.

“Legally you’re not allowed to charge more

than $44 for a Pink Slip, so once the fixed station

charges the mobile repairer, financially the

mobile repairer is worse off.”

However, a Transport for NSW spokesperson

said the policy “ensures certainty for customers

in a number of ways”.

“Authorised Inspection Stations are required

to abide by strict business rules around record

keeping, storage of and access to records for

compliance, audit and investigation purposes

and information security, ensuring safety for

customers,” the spokesperson said.

“The association with a fixed station also

allows for Transport for NSW representatives to

have better oversight.”

Mr Mitchell believes the guidelines are “baseless”.

Rosemary McKenzie-Ferguson.


Founder of injured worker not-for-profit

Craig’s Table, Rosemary McKenzie-

Ferguson has been named a finalist in the

international Comp Laude Awards.

The Parramatta resident is the only

Australian finalist in the California-based

awards and is being recognised for her

advocacy and support efforts for the injured

worker community.

Ms McKenzie-Ferguson suffered a serious

workplace injury in 1994.

It was from that experience she later

established the program that has now

assisted and empowered hundreds of

Australians to strive for the future.

Earlier this year she launched the inaugural

‘Injured Worker Well-Being Week’,

which ran from May 31 to June 4.

Ms McKenzie-Ferguson said she felt

honoured to be nominated and made a

finalist for the Humanitarian Award.

“To be a finalist... I can’t even put it into

words; it is an honour,” she said.

“For me this represents that the injured

worker community of Australia is capable

of doing really outstanding stuff.”

The awards will be held on November 4.

Building name saga

still not settled

5 Parramatta Square.

30,000 ratepayer dollars later, the City

of Parramatta Council finally settled on

a name for its new headquarters before

the motion was rescinded to be debated

again next week.

Last Monday night Councillors voiced

their opinions on the final options

which include ‘Civic’ (referring to the

former Civic Place), ‘Phive’ (meaning

Parramatta hive) and ‘Prisma’ (referring

to the shape and architecture of

the building design).

After a long, heated argument, ‘Phive’

was successful, after it was voted for by

Labor Councillors, Green representative

Phil Bradley, Independent Lorraine

Wearne and Liberal Benjamin Barrak.

The $130 million development, which

is currently referred to as 5 Parramatta

Square, is located in the heart of

Parramatta’s historic civic precinct,

nearby heritage-listed Town Hall

since 1883, and was the previous home

to Council and former Parramatta

Library. Once completed, it will be the

home of Council’s new chambers as

well as a library, community hall and

Discovery Centre.

Cr Wearne said the name was unique

and brought about endless marketing


“We want something that is uniquely

Parramatta,” she said.

“There’s a Civic in every local

mugtown with 15 occupants… Civic

just isn’t going to cut it.”

But Lord Mayor Steven Issa, Deputy

Lord Mayor Michelle Garrard and

remaining Liberal Councillors said

they believed ‘Phive’ was too gimmicky,

with some suggesting it better belonged

in suburbs such as Newtown.

“There’s quite a number of multicultural

people, I think about 100

different nationalities out here as well

as traditional people in the greater

west and they probably have difficulty

pronouncing phive,’’ Councillor Bob

Dwyer said.

The Council went back to the drawing

board on the name in August following

some community pushback regarding

the options at the time, which included

‘Civic’ and ‘Civic Place’.

The rescinded motion will now be

debated at the upcoming Council


Save Parramatta Park

Despite strong community objections, the NSW

Government is pushing ahead with its plan to end

independent management of Parramatta Park and

other important parklands.

The government has released an exposure draft of the Bill

that will replace local trusts including the Parramatta Park

Trust with a centralised agency, Greater Sydney Parklands.

This Bill will erode protections and undermine funding of

our heritage parklands. It also opens up these lands for

further commercialisation.

These lands are too precious to be left for successive

governments to slice off bit by bit. If you are worried

about what this will mean the scan the QR code or visit to send a message to the

NSW Government.

Support payments cut

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

for workers and businesses down to zero.

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

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

workers will be cut off in a fortnight.

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

mean people automatically get their jobs and businesses back. 1 in 10 payroll jobs in Parramatta have been lost since the start

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

This Morrison Government is cutting support with no plan for Parramatta’s economic recovery. Easing

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

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

support still available or visit

Local seniors locked out of aged care

The Royal Commission into Aged Care recommended urgent action to clear home care package waiting

lists, which have been stuck at 100,000 for years.

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

seniors will be left waiting for care they urgently need.

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

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

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

Around half of Parramatta’s seniors speak a language other than English - nationwide its around one in

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

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

TAFE offers solutions

Making dreams come true: Plenty of options available for aspiring teachers


Seven Hills resident Jasmine Ries is

living proof you can be successful

without a high ATAR, as she pursues

her dream career of becoming a primary

school teacher.

Whilst Ms Ries didn’t get the HSC results

she hoped for, she was able to complete

a Certificate III in Education Support at

TAFE NSW earlier this year and has now

progressed to a Certificate IV in Education


Her placement completed at Parramatta

Public School has already led to part-time


Ms Ries said she plans to get her primary

school teaching qualifications once she

graduates from TAFE NSW.

“TAFE NSW has absolutely given me the

skills I need to do my job and it got me

work so quickly, it’s fantastic,” she said.

“I’d already built relationships with

the students and teachers at Parramatta

Public School so it was fantastic that I

didn’t have to say goodbye and could

continue building on those connections.

“The TAFE NSW work placement has

Seven Hills resident Jasmine Ries is following her dreams of working in education.

affirmed how much I love working in

education and that I’ve made the right

career choice.”

Ms Ries said she’s always wanted to be

a teacher since working as a martial arts

instructor for children when she was in

high school.

According to the Federal Government’s

Job Outlook agency, education support is

a large workforce that is expected to see

continued strong growth, with employment

numbers predicted to reach 113,600

jobs nationally by 2025.

TAFE NSW education support teacher

Sharon Crowther said she expects to see

a further spike in demand as students

return to school when COVID-19 restrictions


“I think we will see an increased need for

education support services because there

will be children who need extra support as

we move out of this pandemic and back to

face-to-face learning,” she said.

“Many schools already need education

support workers so there is a lot of casual

part-time work available.”

Ms Crowther said education support can

be a flexible industry to work in.

“It’s an industry that really suits people

who have children and want to work

part-time, and it can provide a really good

segue for students who want to become a

teacher down the track,” she said.

“If you enjoy working with children and

giving children with challenges a boost,

then it can be a very rewarding career that

offers great employment opportunities.”

Why cyber security should be a

priority for you and your business

The leak of a database containing

the records of Apple HealthKit

and Google FitBit users, as well

as several other brands of fitness tracker

products, has highlighted the critical

importance of securing customer databases,

potentially putting more than 61

million people – including an unknown

number in Australia – at risk of compromise

by opportunistic cyber criminals.

It is owned by GetHealth, a New Yorkbased

provider of health data services

and includes 61,053,956 total records.

The leak compromised the following

information: names, weight, height,

dates of birth, gender, and location.

Aside from Apple HealthKit and

Google FitBit, the leak also contained

information from other devices, such as

23andMe, Life Fitness, Daily Mile, FatSecret,

GoogleFit, Jawbone UP, MapMyFitness,

Microsoft, Misfit, MapMyWalk,

Moves App, PredictBGL, Sony Lifelog,

Strava, VitaDock, Runkeeper, Withings,

Android Sensor, and S Health.

With hackers now targeting smaller

businesses and individuals, the data you

hold with your customers’ details could

be compromised.

How do you know if your data has been

Cumberland Council Elections

Saturday 4th December 2021

compromised? If you want to know if

any of your data has been compromised,

not just from this info breach but others

as well, visit and

enter the information you want to search

for. You can check if your email or phone

number has been included in a data

breach. The website will also provide

information on said data breaches.

All data breaches should be reported to

the Office of the Australian Information

Commissioner (OAIC). This is according

to The Privacy Act 1988 designed to

protect the privacy of individuals and

their personal information.

If your data has been compromised,

you should:

• Change your passwords immediately.

• Enable 2FA on all online programs.

• Be cautious with emails from larger

companies you many have visited

online. They could be phishing


• Most of all, implement safe Internet

practices to minimise the damage of

data breaches.

Whilst cyber security is often not a

priority for small businesses, it can cause

a lot of damage if not implemented.

Saturday 4 September 2021

Thinking of nominating as a candidate for your local Council?

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

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

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

specific circumstances.

Nominate as a Mayor or Councillor

To nominate as a Mayor or Councillor you must lodge a nomination

form, either by using the Electoral Commission’s online nomination

system or delivering it to the Returning Officer.

Nominating involves:

• Read the instructions on the nomination form carefully – all parts must

be completed.

• You may be nominated by either a registered political party, or by

two electors enrolled in the local government area or ward for which

you are being nominated. For example, if you are being nominated as

a candidate for a ward your nominators must be enrolled in that ward.

• Candidates must also complete a candidate information sheet and

statistical information sheet.

• A nomination deposit must be paid.

Grouping of Councillor candidates on the ballot paper

Two or more Councillor candidates may form a group on the ballot

paper, and where eligible, request a group voting square (box above

the line) be printed on the ballot paper for the group.

In addition to lodging the nomination form, these candidates must

also lodge a Request to form a group form.

Nomination deposit

All candidates must pay a nomination deposit of $125 each to the

NSW Electoral Commission.

Where candidates also lodge a Request to form a group, the deposit

is capped at $625 for a group of five candidates or more.

If using the online nominations system, the deposit must be paid by

either MasterCard or VISA.

If using paper nomination forms, the nomination deposit must be paid

by cash or bank or building society cheque.

Start your nomination now

The NSW Electoral Commission’s online nominations system is now

available at You can start the process of

nominating online now.

Alternatively, paper nomination forms are available by calling the

Commission’s candidate helpdesk on 1300 022 011.

Candidates who previously prepared a nomination form

Following the postponement of the elections to Saturday 4 December

2021, it was determined that any nomination or grouping forms created

for the postponed Saturday 4 September 2021 elections will need to

be redone.

This decision was made to ensure information submitted in nomination

forms is accurate and current.

Lodge your nomination

Candidates may lodge their nominations and pay the deposit online.

However, if using paper nomination forms, you must lodge your

nomination and deposit with the Returning Officer for the council

area in which you intend to stand as a candidate. Returning Officer

office locations can be found at

You are encouraged to start preparing your nomination form – and

grouping form if applicable – now.

The NSW Electoral Commission strongly encourages you to lodge your

nomination online. As the public health situation can change quickly

in any LGA, locations at which a nomination can be lodged in person


may be closed in accordance with public health orders or if it becomes

necessary due to risks associated with COVID-19.

Nomination forms, grouping forms and nomination deposits must

be lodged between Monday 25 October and 12 noon, Wednesday

3 November 2021.

Late nominations will not be accepted.

Registration for electoral funding purposes

NSW has strict laws that regulate the election campaign finances of

political parties, candidates and groups at the election. These include

requirements to operate a campaign account, and to record and

disclose political donations and electoral expenditure. In addition,

there are caps on political donations and electoral expenditure.

Prior to being nominated, candidates and groups who wish to accept

political donations or pay for electoral expenditure must first apply to

the NSW Electoral Commission to be registered for electoral funding

purposes. Only once registered is a candidate or group allowed to

accept political donations and pay for electoral expenditure.

Candidates and groups can apply to be registered through the NSW

Electoral Commission’s new online registration and disclosure system,

Funding and Disclosure Online. Forms are also available on the

Commission’s website.

Applications for registration for electoral funding purposes close on

Wednesday 3 November 2021.

From Thursday 4 November 2021, nominated candidates and groups

that have not registered before being nominated are taken to be

registered and will take on significant legal obligations for recordkeeping

and making disclosures. Even already-registered candidates

and groups who decide not to nominate will have some ongoing

electoral funding law obligations.

To learn more go to

Enquiries about being registered and the laws that apply to

political donations and electoral expenditure should be sent to

Candidate Handbook and webinars

A Candidate Handbook will be made available on the NSW Electoral

Commission’s website. Educational webinars which assist candidates

in navigating the process are also available.

Ballot paper draw

The Returning Officer will formally announce the candidates and

conduct a draw to determine the order of groups (where applicable)

and candidate names on the ballot paper at the office of the relevant

Returning Officer at 10am, Thursday 4 November 2021.

Observing the ballot paper draw will be subject to the capacity of the

Returning Officer’s office and any NSW Health public health orders in

effect at that time.

The pandemic has inspired people

to complete exciting projects

and a new creative television

show takes it to the next


‘Making It Australia’ is an epic DIY competition

like Masterchef but for crafters. It

airs on Channel 10.

Comedian, writer and panellist on ‘The

Project’, Susie Youssef is joined by fellow

cheeky comedian, Harley Breen to host

the show as 13 amateur and professional

craftspeople compete to win $100,000.

Full of crafty commentary, Susie told

Parra News she was in awe of the contestants’


“I think it is quite a gentle, funny and collaborative

show and also a tribute to all

those people who are makers… they see

stuff on the side of the road, they want to

recycle and make things,” Susie said.

“90 per cent of the show was me looking

at how their brains work to come up with

things and it was exciting to watch people

from different walks of life with different


With challenges ranging from sewing to

woodworking, paper crafts to pottery, and

carving to crocheting, Susie admitted she

preferred to watch.

“I love craft but am more of a spectator.

I dabble, I do some origami and love knitting…

I tried crocheting this year but that

didn’t work out,” she said.

“I do love woodwork and was inspired by

some of the makers and what they did but I

would not describe myself as crafty.”

Susie was more than willing to jump into

mischief with her co-host Harley Breen


“We got to run amok and watch these

amazing people work and distract them

with jokes which was an absolute ball,” she


“Harley is like the tallest big brother I

could ever ask for and I couldn’t imagine

doing it with anyone else.

“He was a total dreamboat to work with

but don’t tell him I said that.”

With lockdowns reigniting some people’s

hobbies, the show aims to encourage others

to rediscover the joy of making things

by hand.

“I think having more downtime than expected

has influenced a lot of people in

general and there is a movement towards

reusing materials and thinking about the

environment,” she said.

“It makes you more mindful and allows

you to be present plus it is fun and you

don’t have to be any good which is the best

part of craft.”

‘Making It Australia’ airs on Saturdays

at 6pm on 10. You can catch up on past

on Foxtel and Binge in December. The

10-episode series, which is currently filming

in NYC, follows Carrie, Miranda and

Charlotte as they navigate the journey

from the complicated reality of life and

friendship in their 30s to the even more

complicated reality of life and friendship

in their 50s.


New Australian comedy ‘Spreadsheet’

is coming to Paramount+ on Wednesday,

October 27. Starring Katherine Parkinson,

Rowan Witt and Stephen Curry,

‘Spreadsheet’ is centred around Lauren

(Parkinson), a freshly divorced, motherof-two,

looking for a “good time” without

commitment. With the help of best friend

Alex (Witt), Lauren creates the “Spreadsheet”

– a database of “options”.

Disney+ has dropped ‘Just Beyond’,

an eight-part anthology series from the

world of author R.L. Stine. Each episode

introduces viewers to a new cast of

characters who must go on a surprising

journey of self-discovery in a supernatural

world of witches, aliens, ghosts and

parallel universes.

New E! series ‘Clash of the Cover

Bands’ is airing on Thursday nights. In

each episode, two bands of similar musical

genre will go head-to-head.

talking, digitally-connected device,

which is supposed to be his “Best Friend

out of the Box”.

against the backdrop of the social

media age, launch them into an actionpacked

journey in which boy and robot

come to terms with the wonderful

messiness of true friendship.

Grazer, Olivia Colman, Ed Helms,

Justice Smith, Rob Delaney, Kylie

LandCruiser’s next step

New chapter for one of Toyota’s most iconic brands as 300 Series lands


Toyota has launched its all-new

LandCruiser 300 Series, kicking off

the next chapter in the legendary

off-roader’s storied history.

Newly constructed from the ground up,

the all-new 300 Series takes the capability,

durability and reliability of the iconic

LandCruiser nameplate to new levels,

while also making advancements in

safety, comfort, performance and technology.

Key upgrades include a new 3.3-litre

V6 twin-turbo diesel engine, a bold new

exterior design underpinned by the

Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA)

platform, and advanced driver assistance

technologies to provide superb on-road

performance and unmatched off-road


The LandCruiser 300 Series range also

offers customers more choice than ever,

with two new flagship variants – the luxury

Sahara ZX and the off-road-focused GR

Sport – joining the core GX, GXL, VX and

Sahara range.

The Sahara ZX offers unmatched levels

of comfort and style for LandCruiser

buyers, while the GR Sport is the most

off-road capable LandCruiser yet with its

world-first electronic Kinetic Dynamic

Suspension System (e-KDSS) stabiliser bar

control system, and front and rear locking

differentials as standard.

The LandCruiser 300 Series can be

identified by its strong design language,

combining trademark LandCruiser

features with a new, powerful and emotive

styling that is equal parts form and function.

Inside, the LandCruiser’s cabin blends

luxurious style with functionality, and

increased space and flexibility, ensuring

long and taxing journeys through the

Australian wilderness are done in utmost


Toyota Australia Vice President Sales,

Marketing and Franchise Operations,

Sean Hanley, said the all-new LandCruiser

300 Series would further strengthen the

reputation of the LandCruiser in the tough

Australian conditions.

“Ever since it was imported into Australia

to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro

Scheme in the 1950s, the LandCruiser has

become synonymous with tackling the

The LandCruiser 300 Series is expected to be a big seller.

harshest conditions our country has to

offer,” he said.

“Equally at home in the school car park

or the middle of the outback, the new 300

Series LandCruiser takes the comfort,

safety and off-road ability of our flagship

SUV to new heights.

“We fully expect this new generation to

carry on the stellar legacy of the Land-

Cruiser in Australia.”

Matildas ready to rock Parramatta



crowd of more than 22,000 fully vaccinated

fans will be on hand for this

Saturday’s Matildas v Brazil game in

Parramatta after the NSW Government agreed

to increase the venue capacity of CommBank

Stadium to 75 per cent.

Football Australia CEO James Johnson was

delighted with last week’s announcement,

which will see the Matildas play on home soil

for the first time in over 18 months.

“Today’s announcement to increase the

venue capacity at CommBank Stadium for the

Commonwealth Bank Matildas’ two-match

series against Brazil next week to 75 per cent of

the venue’s 30,000 capacity, is another groundbreaking

announcement for Australian football

following the NSW Government’s approval

of our submission to host three matches in

Sydney within the 14-day mandatory quarantine

period,” he said.

“This now means that more NSW-based

fans will be able to see their favourite national

women’s team live once again, and also paves

the way for Sydney to host the Socceroos’

crucial home AFC Asian Qualifier – Road to

Qatar match against Saudi Arabia on November


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

“The Commonwealth Bank Matildas are also

presented with an opportunity to break their

last attendance record set at the same venue

back in November 2019, when 20,029 fans


“We are delighted that Australian football

has paved the way for international sport to be

played in Australia under these new arrangements

and that we can continue to support the

NSW Government in its efforts to reopen the


NSW Sports Minister Natalie Ward said the

exemption was signed off last Wednesday

night, allowing the crowd to be boosted from

5000 to 22,500 for the matches on Saturday,

October 23 and Tuesday, October 26.

“We’re all desperate to see Sydney regain

its rightful crown as the sporting capital of

Australia and I can’t think of a better showcase

than the upcoming Matildas versus Brazil

blockbuster games,” she said.

“Robust COVID-safe plans mean crowd

numbers can be more than quadrupled from

our original expectations, which is a fantastic

result for our football fans.

“We’ve all missed the roar of the crowds and

I can’t wait to hear the sound of Matildas fans

cheering on their heroes. Sydney is sending a

message to the world – we are back.”

Tickets are available through Ticketek.
