New schools to be built without air conditioning

Parents say the decision not to install air conditioning in four new Sydney schools is “short-sighted” and will become a major issue as the schools fill up, despite the Department of Education’s move towards better insulation and ventilation being included in building design.

Bay-link shuttle, free community bus trial

A free community shuttle bus between WP and Rhodes was first talked about during construction of Bennelong Bridge. The proposal was for Billbergia to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement with Council (originally Auburn, but now City of Parramatta) to provide long-term funding for the Bay-link shuttle, a larger park adjacent to the bridge and additional infrastructure works in return for apartment uplift. Although agreement was reached with Auburn in 2015, negotiations with Parramatta Council have been ongoing since they took over in May 2016.

Billbergia is now looking to demonstrate the benefit of the free community shuttle bus service and is initiating a 12 week trial from 22 January. The trial will be subject to refinement as usage patterns are identified. See details below. We will continue to post updates as these come available.

SCHOOL SHOES
I’m receiving enquiries about school shoes. Our preference is that children wear black leather shoes but if this is not possible, black runners are acceptable. No coloured joggers except during sport will be permitted. We all know that sports footwear can provide a basis for fashion competition and this just places pressure on the children and on your budgets. We want children to identify with our school and to provide a positive image in our community and wearing the school uniform is one strategy to achieve this. Hope this helps. Rose Manousaridis

Trolley Tracker > Home

Message received from Patricia Prociv, one of our local councillors in response to last night’s email newsletter.

ABANDONED SHOPPING TROLLEY UPDATE

Today I spoke to a senior council officer who advised the following:

“Please direct your constituents to http://trolleytracker.com.au/. In the interim, Council officers will photograph and track the level of abandoned trolleys, and follow-up with the relevant operators. Operators have an obligation under their DA consent to pick-up trolleys. Operators can be issued an infringement for non-compliance with this DA condition.”
I will continue to follow this through Facebook and feeback from you and council officers.

I can be contacted on 0412984176 or via email pprociv@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au
Include detailed information and I will lodge a service request on your behalf, which I can do for any number of concerns/complaints.”

I have also been in contact with Councillors from Canada Bay Council regarding this issue.

Best Wishes,

Patricia Prociv
