LIVERPOOL Council will acquire roughly 1798 square metres of Department of Defence land in Holsworthy for the development of a public road.

As part of the Moorebank Units Relocation Project, the department must build a new Heathcote Road entry point between The Boulevard roundabout and Williams Creek to meet Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) requirements.

The department cannot dedicate land for the use of a public road and, according to the council report, the only way RMS requirements can be met is for Liverpool Council to take over ownership of that portion of land and gazette it for public use.

The council will pay $1 for the transaction.

Once the land is deemed public, RMS will take over the maintenance of the road and the signalling.

The Department of Defence will foot the bill for the exchange and for any other associated costs.

Waiting period a ‘joke’

RESIDENTS of the Sinclair Avenue public housing precinct in Ashcroft rallied in support of Robert Blanchard, their comrade in the trenches.

Resident Steven Smith said the very serious issue of homelessness in Liverpool and greater south-west Sydney should not be ignored.

“Issues like this affect a significant part of the Liverpool community — these are the issues that should be in the news,” he said.

“Just look at Robbie. He’s already homeless and now they’re taking away the little bit of shelter he has.

“Robbie really is a good bloke. He always says hello. He never complains and he keeps to himself.

“He’s harmless and since he’s lived there we’ve had no dramas.”

Robert Blanchard is no longer on a Housing NSW list but people who are registered face a waiting period of up to two years.

Another resident, who asked to be anonymous, said the waiting period was “a bloody joke” considering there were at least three units in the Sinclair Avenue complex and three private department units across the road that had been vacant for up to a year.

“Robbie’s harmless, he’s not going to do anything,” he said.

“Give him one of the vacant properties we have here. There are heaps of empty places for him.”

A Housing NSW spokeswoman confirmed the department managed three vacant units in the Sinclair Avenue complex. She did not comment on how long the properties had been vacant but said: “These units are currently undergoing maintenance work before they can be re-let.”

Eviction is a last resort — well, it should be

A SPOKESWOMAN for Housing NSW said eviction was a last resort. She said the department had to go through a stringent process before evicting a tenant but admits HNSW was made aware of Robert Blanchard’s circumstances only days before evicting him. He was not a tenant of the public housing complex but lived in a wooden shack in a stairwell on the property.
苏州美甲学校

According to residents, “Homeless Robbie” was given only a day’s notice to advise him of the eviction and demolition order.

The spokeswoman said HNSW representatives requested that Mr Blanchard attend the Miller Housing office to formally lodge an application for accommodation. “He still hasn’t done so and this limits our ability to offer him any housing assistance,” she said.

Mr Blanchard told the Champion that he visited the office the same day as he was evicted but was turned away when the shutters were closed in his face.

The spokeswoman denied those claims but said Mr Blanchard once had HNSW tenancy which was terminated due to severe breaches of his tenancy agreement.

“Housing NSW will assess if he’s able to take on another tenancy without breaking his agreement. If he were to be offered another tenancy he’ll have to meet the eligibility criteria and assure HNSW he’ll comply with the tenancy agreement.”

THIS is Robert Blanchard.

Aged 50, he is injured, broke and homeless.

After three months living as a squatter in a stairwell in a public housing complex in Ashcroft, last Wednesday afternoon he was forced to pack up his life to go . . . nowhere.

With swollen eyes, a rucksack on his back and his eight-week- old kitten Ling Ling in tow, he watched as representatives from Housing NSW tore down his wooden shack.

To add insult to injury, department officials also sent a truck to remove the wooden panels so Mr Blanchard could not rebuild.

A spokeswoman for Housing NSW said he was removed from the premises because “it would not be appropriate for Mr Blanchard to continue to sleep rough at the property for his own safety and that of residents in the block”.

But after being turned away from the Miller Housing NSW office — where officials advised him to attend — Mr Blanchard has returned to the streets for refuge.

He said he didn’t know what he was going to do now.

“How can they do this? I wasn’t bothering anyone. I was just minding my own business and keeping to myself. I’ve got nowhere else to go,” he said.

With no family to help him and no friends to turn to, Mr Blanchard said he was a broken man.

Suffering from a debilitating bone disease that has left a visible hole in his right knee, Mr Blanchard said he felt further turmoil by the situation because of his limited mobility.

“That was the only home I had. It wasn’t much but at least it was warm and dry,” he said.

The shack was about 1.5 square metres. It had no lights but contained a damaged, discarded armchair where Mr Blanchard slept with his kitten on his lap.

A second-hand bar fridge sat in the corner and his clothes and the rest of his possessions sat bundled in bags on the floor.

Public housing residents from the Ashcroft complex have shown great support for “Homeless Robbie”.

Several residents told the Champion they didn’t mind him being there.

They also said several units in the complex had been vacant for months.

Future: Federal Health minister Tanya Plibersek at the Ingham Institute’s Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre. Picture: Anna WarrSOUTH West Sydney will be the epicentre of learning for medical professionals, after Ingham Institute officially opened the Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre, last week.
苏州美甲学校

The centre, in Liverpool Hospital, is an education hub for students, trainees and medical experts.

It’s the first operating theatre in the state that is complete with anaesthetic and scrubbing bays, providing participants with hands-on experience of what it is like to work in a surgical environment.

Students will be able to learn the fundamentals of working in an operating theatre; such as learning to prepare for surgery and carrying out correct sterile methods including “scrubbing in”, “gowning” and “gloving”.

They will be required to prepare for mock surgical operations on interactive robotic patient mannequins.

There are three mannequins; a male (“Sim Man”), female (“Sim Mum”) and baby (“Sim NewB”).

The mannequins have human-like qualities; they can breathe, talk, generate heart beats, as well as make bowel sounds to create real-life emergency scenarios.

The Sim Mum can be used for midwifery training and has a birthing simulator to teach nurses, and the Sim NewB has the ability to breathe and cry and comes with an umbilical cord.

Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek, who attended the opening, said the centre was one of the most advanced in Australia, providing medical students with invaluable experience and learning opportunities.

Polynesian quest gets its first Aussie entrant

LIVERPOOL beauty Shiloh Phillips was never particularly attracted to modelling.
苏州美甲学校

But that changed when she was chosen for the fourth annual Mr and Miss Polynesia Pacific pageant.

“Some family members saw the pageant advertised and said I should try out for it so I did,” she said.

“All I wanted to do was sport all my life but this appealed to me because it had a Polynesian flair.”

The New Zealander, 20, is in her second year at Inspire Bible college on Hoxton Park Road.

She will take a break from her studies to fly to Hawaii for the competition on September 28.

This year’s theme is Glamour and the Golden Age of Waikiki.

There are six categories to get through, including an initial online section for the people’s vote, another for natural couture then everyday wear, evening wear and a talent section. The finale is called Fantasy Polynesia.

“It makes Las Vegas look shy,” she said.

Five men and five women of Polynesian blood are chosen from all over the world.

Miss Phillips said this was the first year an Australian had been selected.

“It’s a really well-known event in the Polynesian community,” she said. “I didn’t believe it at first that I’d been selected. I had to read the acceptance email about four times then a friend read it to me, too. I’m overwhelmed but excited and once we have the action plan in place it should be good.”

Miss Phillips has a small team to help, including a manager, makeup artist, wardrobe assistant and fashion designer. Her manager is the founder of a singing and dancing group where Shiloh used to work as a Polynesian dancer.

Commuters lobby for rail staff

DIANA Vincent was one of the south-western Sydney residents who joined the campaign for changes in staffing levels at the Glenfield and Campbelltown train lines last Thursday.
苏州美甲学校

More than 100 residents signed the petition which was organised by a community advocacy organisation, Sydney Alliance.

The alliance is calling for two RailCorp staff members to be present at the key interchange stations until the last train leaves each night.

Ms Vincent, who frequently uses the Glenfield train line to travel into the city for university, said she sometimes felt unsafe when travelling back home at night.

“I often stayed back to study until late which meant I would return to Glenfield from 9 to 11 at night,” Ms Vincent said.

“At times I would be alone or one of the few people to disembark the train and there would be no staff members present.”

She also said it was important for commuters to feel safe at stations so they would continue to have access to public transport.

A spokeswoman for Transport for NSW said new security measures were in place and were now being organised by state police.

“The NSW Police took over security for the entire public transport network which is under a new dedicated Police Transport Command in May, 2012,” she said.
