Introduction

 

The Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust (CPMPT) is required to review its Regulation every five years, under the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989. The current CPMPT Regulation 2004 is being replaced by the draft Regulation 2009.

 

The new draft Regulation was exhibited in July and submissions were due on 20 July 2009. This timeframe did not allow for prior reporting of the submission to Council. I have forwarded the attached submission raising issues relevant to our City to the Trust.

 

Background

 

The Centennial Parklands are a significant parkland contained within Randwick Cityís local boundaries and Council continues to take a strong interest and involvement in the planning and use of the parklands.

 

A review of the new draft CPMPT Regulation showed that it is substantially the same as the current Regulation, apart from minor/administrative changes.

 

While noting that Council has no issues with these minor aspects, our submission noted potential improvements in relation to the Trustís Community Consultative Committee as set out in the Regulation. New and additional criteria in the Regulation were suggested for the selection and appointment of the Committee members. This included members being regular users of the parklands and also having a sound knowledge of not just the parklands but also of the surrounding localities. This will better ensure that members have a sound understanding of the issues relevant to Randwick City residents. Suggestions were also provided for better informing the community on this Committee and opportunities to apply.

 

It was further noted that while we continue to have a strong working relationship with the Trust, further consideration of more formal arrangements would be welcomed by Randwick City Council.

 

I am pleased to note that the Trust has subsequently contacted me directly with information and invitations in relation to Trust events and activities, such as tree planting days, for which our Council and community can be involved.

 

 

Recommendation

 

That Council note this report and submission sent to the Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust (CPMPT) in relation to their draft Regulation.

Mayoral Minute No. MM54/09

 

 

Subject:††††††††††††††††† Randwick Hospitals Campus: Interim Accommodation

Folder No:†††††††††††††††††† F2008/00375

Introduction

 

In April 2009, the Vera Adderley Residence on the Randwick Hospitals Campus was closed due to its poor condition, and is intended to be demolished.

 

This building was constructed in the 1970ís and provided affordable accommodation for nurses and other staff, as well as outpatients from outside Sydney receiving treatment and relatives of patients. It contains 350 rooms, with up to 25% (approximately 85 beds) of these occupied by country outpatients and patientsí relatives at any one time.

 

As a significant campus, comprising four separate hospitals with statewide specialty services, the Randwick Hospitals Campus is a critical facility for use by people all across NSW, and affordable accommodation close to the hospital is limited.

 

Issues

 

Country outpatients and patientsí relatives no longer have on-campus accommodation when receiving treatment or caring for sick relatives, and need to find accommodation independently. Alternative accommodation close to the campus is only available on a commercially operated basis.

 

I recommend Council approach the South Eastern Sydney and Illawarra Area Health Service (SESIAHS) to promote consideration of a facility for country outpatients, and patientsí relatives on the Randwick Hospitals Campus

 

 

Recommendation

 

That Council endorse approaching the South Eastern Sydney and Illawarra Area Health Service seeking consideration of a facility of at least 85 beds, on the Randwick hospitals Campus.
