Corner of Clara and Clewley - yet another accident

Submitted by Linda Conrad on Mon, 21/10/2019 - 18:55

Although there is a 'give way' sign and a broken line across the street on Clewley, requiring drivers to stop as they are going either east or west, I would like to garner support for broken lines on Clara as well, requiring drivers to stop as they are heading north and south.  The problem with the current situation is that, when there are parked cars on both sides of Clara close to the intersection, it is impossible for drivers on Clewley to see oncoming cars on Clara.  I had an accident there several years ago, but there are frequent accidents.

Is NBN Rollout bringing problems to our suburb?

In the last 2 weeks residents would have started receiving letters from Visionstream regarding the upcoming NBN rollout in our area from July-November 2018.

The NBN rollout uses different types of technology for different areas, and each of these technologies has differing performance and futureproof capabilities.

Unfortunately for our areas, NBN has decided that the troublesome HFC technology is to be used for our suburbs.  Please let your neighbours know about this impending change that will impact both your phone and internet services.

What to do if Council records wrongly record a pre WWII house as built in the 1050s?

Submitted by Dreamer on Mon, 10/10/2016 - 13:38

Can anyone provide advice? I have concerns that a house built in 1916 located on the high side of Sherwood in a character street may be either demolished or removed from this character area. There is no development application or any other record of planned building works on the BCC website. Repeated calls to council have been less than helpful, with the same Town Planner repeatedly stating the house was built in the 1950s.

The development plan is shown on BCC's website under A004001329 a 120-unit, 4-storey high-care facility inconsistent with the Neighbourhood Plan and regulations governing heritage precincts.
