Hefty rate hike a ‘gift’ for Sunbury residents By Tara Murray SUNBURY ratepayers could face a rate rise of more than 14 per cent if Sunbury has its own council, a report by accounting firm KPMG says. The report, commissioned by Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell, looked at the financial impacts on

both Sunbury and the rest of Hume if Sunbury seceded from Hume. The report comes ahead of a vote in October, when all Hume residents will have the opportunity to have a say on whether Sunbury remains part of Hume or sets up its own council. The report found that Sunbury residents would pay an additional

14.2 per cent a year in rates in the next four years. The council currently predicts rates will increase by 5.3 per cent a year for the next four years. In contrast, KPMG said Hume residents’ rates would go up by only 3.8 per cent a year if Sunbury seceded. Using Deep Creek as the boundary for the new shire, the report split

income and expenditure between Hume and Sunbury on an 80:20 ratio based on population. Bulla, which is on either side of the creek, was included in the hypothetical Sunbury shire, along with Wild- wood, parts of Diggers Rest and Clarkefield. Revenue collected through rates from the Melbourne Airport and

Reserve Bank of Australia noteprinting facility in Craigieburn has been allocated to Hume. The report said the process of forming a new Sunbury council would cost between $3.5 million and $4.4 million. No decision has been made on how and who will be responsible for these costs.

KEY Sunbury residents have slammed the financial report into the impacts of Sunbury seceding from Hume. The report by accounting firm KPMG, released last Wednesday, said Sunbury residents could pay an extra 14.2 per cent a year in rates for the next four years if Sunbury forms its own council. Sunbury Residents Association president Bernie O’Farrell, Cr Jack Ogilvie and long-time Sunbury out of Hume campaigner Trevor Dance said the report had major flaws. “I think there are major deficiencies and they have come to the conclusion rates will increase by 14.2 per cent,” said Mr O’Farrell. “The methodology was completely inappropriate ... instead of doing a grassroots study, they [KPMG] simply allocated a proportion [of services and income] from the current municipality. It’s a cop-out.” Cr Ogilvie said a new Sunbury council wouldn’t need the same levels of staff or services as Hume council. “There are some areas they talk a lot about, like population, but they have the figures wrong,” he said. “I’ve said for months the rate increase would be about 8-10 per cent.” Mr Dance said: “The KPMG

report that the Sunbury community has been waiting for for over two years is flawed and nothing short of embarrassing. “[Local Government] Minister [Jeanette] Powell states, ‘The rate projections prepared by KPMG are hypothetical’. So how does this help the community?” Cr Ann Potter said the report was what she had expected. “It is extremely comprehensive and based purely on the same level of services that Sunbury residents currently receive,” she said. “For no change in service level or any change at all, I can’t imagine that a 14 per cent rate increase would be welcomed by our community.’’ Hume mayor Geoff Porter said the report would help residents make a more informed decision. “In Hume, they have 100 different services,” he said. “This may change under a new council.” Ms Powell said people shouldn’t be surprised that setting up a new shire was a complicated process. “If Sunbury residents and a new council decide they don’t want to have the same level of services, then that is up to them to decide and the costs will change.’’ — Tara Murray

HIDDEN cameras are helping Parks Victoria to catch people illegally taking wood from state forests in the Macedon Ranges. Gisborne man Matthew Nolde was convicted, fined and ordered to pay $2750 for illegally collecting wood from the Lerderderg State Park. Parks Victoria team leader Scott Nicholson said Nolde was charged with cutting and removing vegetation and off-road driving offences. “He was convicted after a number of warnings including an initial verbal warning and a subsequent infringement notice for continuing to cut firewood in the Lerderderg State Park. However, he continued to cut wood and advertise it for sale.” Mr Nicholson said timber was cut and removed from the park by people over several months. A four-week operation by Parks Victoria had put a stop to it. “Heavy penalties apply for offences relating to illegal firewood collection,’’ Mr Nicholson said. “They include collecting firewood outside designated collection areas and seasons, felling timber, collecting more than the maximum allowable amounts and selling the wood.”

No-go zone: Park Victoria ranger Peter McGinnis in the Lerderderg State Park.

Two Hepburn men were also fined for cutting firewood in the Wombat State Forest without a licence. They were collecting wood outside of the designated period and were each fined $2000 plus court costs. Mr Nicholson said strong penalties applied for illegal firewood collection on public land. He said the rules were clear.

“Regular patrols and the use of hidden cameras in vulnerable areas are helping to identify people who are illegally collecting firewood. “Illegal harvesting of wood from our parks has a detrimental effect on the environment, tourism and park visitor enjoyment and the local economy.” Offenders face on-the-spot fines of

about $570. If a case goes to court, the person may receive up to $7218 in fines, one-year imprisonment or both. The next firewood collection period starts on September 1 and lasts until November 30. Residents can report illegal wood collection to Department of Environment and Primary Industries. Details: depi.vic. gov.au or call 136 186.

Suspicious behaviour puts owner on dog watch A SUNBURY man believes thieves are casing his house, attempting to steal his dog. Rhys Aquilina told the Weekly that on two occasions in the past fortnight he had caught men acting suspiciously around his house. “I was in the backyard when I heard someone over the other side of the fence, – the dog barked and broke

off his leash,” Mr Aquilina said. “A man ran off when I saw him. I tried to follow him and his dog, but he disappeared. Later, the man returned, jumped back on the fence and tried to look into the back of the house.” Worried that his dog, an English Staffordshire, would be stolen, Mr Aquilina moved the dog to another location. “Three days later an old

4 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ August 6, 2013

man jumped on the fence and then walked across the road; a black fourwheel-drive came around the corner and they waited until I had gone inside and then left.’’ Mr Aquilina said he called the police and reported his fears about attempts by people to steal dogs and use them for “dog baiting” or “dog fighting’’.

Candidates to be ‘grilled’ A ‘great McEwen breakfast debate’ is on the menu this Friday in Romsey. The five candidates for the federal seat of McEwen – Donna Petrovich of the Liberal party, Greens’ Neil Barker, Palmer United Party’s Trevor Dance, Bruce Stevens of Katter’s Australian Party, and incumbent Labor MP Rob Mitchell – will answer questions from the public in an open forum, which has been organised by the Romsey Region Business and Tourism Association.

A Digger remembered

Mr Aquilina’s comments come after residents in Melton and Taylors Lakes reported people trying to steal their dogs. RSPCA Victoria senior inspector Daniel Bode said the organisation had heard reports “but wasn’t aware of any instances where dogs have been stolen for the purposes of organised dog-fighting.” – Tara Murray

Northern suburbs’ health heading south RESIDENTS of Melbourne’s northern suburbs, including Hume, are in significantly worse health than the national average, a new study has found. The study, conducted by the University of Melbourne, the Northern Melbourne Regional

Clients at the Broadmeadows and Sunbury offices were among those who had tests. The health checks targeted places where people find

Submissions divided over new electoral boundaries

Lending a hand: Geoff Rose with one of the badges.

HELPING veterans is a cause that’s even more dear to the Roses than wearing a badge. Geoff and Noela Rose have been selling badges in Sunbury for the past six years to raise money for the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia. They are continuing the tradition this week. “There are three locations where the Royal Australian Air Force Vietnam Veterans Association [a subbranch of the VVAA] sells badges,” Mr Rose says. “Sunbury always raises the most money of the three.” Mr Rose joined the RAAF in 1970. “I joined as an administrative clerk and was posted to the flying training school of Point Cook,” he says. “Then I decided to do pilot training. I graduated as a pilot in 1972.” Mr Rose said the money raised would help veterans pay bills, medical expenses and family welfare needs. “The call for welfare support is on the increase ... we need to be able to assist the veteran community whenever possible,” he said. The Roses will be selling badges on Thursday and Friday at Sunbury Square shopping centre.

Sixteen per cent of those tested reported excessive sleepiness and 7.1 per cent reported falling asleep while driving at least once in every 10 trips. More than 18 per cent reported consuming ‘‘risky’’ amounts of alcohol compared with the national average of 13.4 per cent. Dianella clinical director Ralph Audehm was not surprised by

THE Victorian Electoral Commission has received a mixed response from Hume and Macedon Ranges residents over proposed state electoral boundary changes. As reported by the Weekly on July  2, the proposed changes would lead to a new Sunbury electorate and significant changes to the existing Macedon, Yuroke and Broadmeadows electorates. About 30 per cent of Victorian voters will find themselves voting for new lower and upper house seats at the next state election if the proposed changes go ahead. As of late last week, the commission had received six submissions from Hume and Macedon Ranges residents. In their submission, Sunbury’s Lawrence Seyers and Stephen Coughlan supported the formation of the Sunbury electorate. It would include Sunbury township, Bulla and Diggers Rest, and parts of Tullamarine, Westmeadows and Gladstone Park. “The proposed Sunbury district has multiple but complementary communities of interest,” Mr Seyers said. Tullamarine’s Shirley Kociuba

and Janifer Ewen objected to the formation of the new electorate. Both highlighted the distance between Tullamarine and Sunbury and believed Tullamarine would be ‘‘forgotten’’ if it was in the same electorate as Sunbury. Trentham’s Ian MacBean welcomed the changes under which Trentham would be included in the Macedon electorate. “Trentham and district has extensive historical, economic and social connections with the towns to its east, Kyneton and Woodend, and generally with the Macedon Ranges region,” he said. “The proposed Macedon district achieves a very effective community of interest.” A Liberal Party submission calls for Yuroke to remain in the Western Metropolitan region of the upper house. Commission senior information and research officer Paul ThorntonSmith said the deadline was Monday last week and the commission was still sorting the submissions. He said 489 submissions had been received so far from across the state. – Tara Murray

Fired up to beat bush blaze risks By Angela Valente

The draft fire operations plans can be viewed at depi.vic.gov.au

Paul Rovere

A THREE-year plan by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries aims to fight fire with fire. The draft plan for fuel reduction burns, to be carried out across the state with Parks Victoria, has been released for public comment. It includes plans for slashing, brush cutting, spraying and maintenance to fire access tracks. In the Macedon Ranges, fuel reduction burns are planned for this financial year to reduce the spread of fire and provide protection to towns. Of 520 hectares of land included in the burn-offs, 282 hectares are in Mount Macedon. Burns are also planned for Hepburn shire, near Trentham. For 2014-15, almost 2500 hectares of land in the Macedon Ranges is earmarked in the draft plan to be

burned. The biggest area is 1652 hectares in Macedon, along the Macedon-Firth Road. For 2015-16, about 1612 hectares is proposed for fuel-reduction burns, including 807 hectares near Lancefield. Fuel management works, which include slashing, are planned for Bullengarook, Blackwood, Lancefield and Macedon. In Trentham, more than 35 hectares of track maintenance is planned for this financial year alone. Midlands district fire manager Merydth Whitehead said the CFA, councils, farmers, beekeepers and wine producers had been consulted on developing the fire plans. She said the decision to conduct fuel-reduction burns was driven by the need to reduce bushfire risk to people and property.

Hub a threat to rare wattle

Trip to tighten China ties

Join us on Sunday 1 September Start a new Father’s Day tradition this year at Paterson’s Telegraph Hotel on Sunday 1 September. There’s something for everyone with a delicious three-course set menu, one complimentary beer or wine per person and loads of fun activities for the kids to enjoy – plus a free gift for every child.

PLANT expert Russell Best says the Macedon Ranges council’s proposal to build an early-years hub on UL Daly Nature Reserve in Gisborne will “deliberately extinguish” a plant species from the wild and the shire forever. Four plants of acacia rostiformis (pictured), commonly known as Bacchus Marsh wattle, have been found at the reserve by Dr Best, a research officer at Australian Plants Society Victoria. A study last year identified 61 native plants growing at the reserve including two varieties of acacia rostiformis. Last week, Dr Best identified two more varieties of the wattle. The council is proposing to build a hub either on the reserve or on a nearby pine plantation. Dr Best said Bacchus Marsh wattle

SUNBURY’S Ian Parker is hoping his five-month study trip to China will be the start of a mission to strengthen Australia’s relations with people in that nation. Mr Parker (pictured) has been awarded a $10,000 Hamer scholarship by the state government. The scholarship is designed to build Victorians’ Chinese language capabilities and boost cultural awareness between Victoria and China. Mr Parker, a former marketing teacher, will go to China in December. “The scholarship means I’ll be learning Chinese five days a week and I intend to live with a Chinese family. “People are amazed to think that I want to do this but think it’s a good idea,” he said. Mr Parker, who visited China three times as a teacher, hopes to further his teaching skills through a greater knowledge of the language. “There may be an opportunity for me to help businesses from within Australia make engagement with Chinese companies.’’

was the most endangered species in the wild to be found in the shire. “There will be a local species extinction if [the hub on] Daly reserve is developed,” he said. “[It will] probably be the first time that a critically endangered species is deliberately extinguished from the wild in the Macedon Ranges shire. The council will create a master plan for the reserve, which includes a footprint for an early-years hub and also recognises the environmental significance of the reserve. Community consultation for the plan is expected to start next month.

MACEDON RANGES SHIRE COUNCIL PROPOSAL TO MAKE THE GENERAL PURPOSES AND AMENITY LOCAL LAW Local Government Act 1989 - Section 119(2) At its meeting on Wednesday 24 July the Council resolved to make the General Purposes and Amenity Local Law No. 10 2013.

And with retail outlets in Sunbury and Melton, the sky is the limit for this couple. “Our future plans are to open more retail stores,” Warren says. “It’s a very proud achievement to reach our one year anniversary in retail.” The third generation tyre fitter was first introduced to the business at the age of 12 when he would go into the family-run operation with his father and grandfather.

IT didn’t take long to convince Sunbury Primary School grade 6 pupils to be part of the CareWorks community art project. “The students were so excited last week that when I was away they talked the relief teacher into working on the project,” art teacher Leah Baensch said. Sunbury Primary is one of 11 local schools involved in the project, which aims to raise money to help people in crisis and increase

awareness of programs run by charity agency CareWorks SunRanges. Each school will recreate the streetscape of one of Sunbury’s streets. The works will go on display at Sunbury Square shopping centre next month. Residents can then select their favourite piece and donate money to the agency. The artwork attracting the biggest donation will win prizes for the pupils’ school donated by Sunbury Community Health Centre, Western Water and Bunnings.

10 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ August 6, 2013


YOURVOICE Are we witnessing the death throes of Hepburn shire council?

I refer, of course, to the council services and community hub that has magically appeared in its 2013-14 budget. This is a council that is, at best, only marginally financially viable. A council that levies excessive rates. A council that fails to provide equitable services across the shire. A council that has failed to respond to those who made their submissions to the 2013-14 budget. A council that ignores rapid population growth patterns to its east. An era of rapid population growth demands a viable municipality, based on real “community of interest” and responsive to the needs of its ratepayers. The council fails on all counts. A review of municipal boundaries is a real possibility. In which case the “Taj Mahal” (the new council building) planned for Daylesford could be redundant before it is completed. David McCallum, Trentham Re. Confusion over Hume’s ‘split’ poll (Weekly, July 16)

Sunbury residents need an assurance

that the financial report on the proposed secession of Sunbury from Hume council has been done professionally and that there has been no Liberal Party involvement. We also hope that it will be presented in a form that is easy to analyse and that the financial advice is going to be taken into account in any poll question. Peter Gavin, Sunbury Daly reserve needs recognition

The importance of the UL Daly Nature Reserve to the Gisborne and Macedon Ranges community must be recognised.

In 1978, as shire secretary (of the then shire of Gisborne), I arranged the purchase of the highly sensitive environment area from Ulick Lord Daly, who had been a local councillor and shire president. In deciding to acquire this pivotal site, the then council recognised the value of the reserve as a key component to its planning strategy to protect the existing urban character and amenity of Gisborne town. At that time there was no formalised planning scheme and the district was subject to great development pressures. The first planning scheme was completed in the following year and has been the basis for much of the existing planning protections for the Macedon Ranges’ unique environment. The value of the reserve to the attractiveness and lifestyle of Gisborne is very apparent today and it is for these reasons that it should not be subjected to development. It was bought as a key element to the long-term development of the urban area of Gisborne. As growth continues, the wisdom of this decision is becoming very clear.

I urge the community to oppose the proposal to use it for a service centre. Terry Larkins, Gisborne Re. Daly Nature Reserve in danger as ’dozers are readied to attack (Weekly online):

The activists protesting about developments in an environmentally sensitive area should also be addressing the source of the problem – Victoria’s excessive population growth. With about 1000 new people a day entering Melbourne, the demands of all these people for services and amenities will consume any “vacant” land. Unless a council formulates its own population policies, and caps, the problem won’t go away. Mary

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services.

firelevy.vic.gov.au

GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Early detection the key for women’s health unbury’s Family Medical Centre is joining other clinics and organisations in a campaign to boost early detection of cancer in women through screening and raising awareness. “Many people would be already familiar with PapScreen Victoria’s slogan, ‘A little awkward for a lot of peace of mind’,” says the centre’s GP liaison and marketing manager, Danielle Spurrell. “The trained nurses at Family Medical Centre certainly agree with that and encourage women to have their sexual and reproductive health checked. “Our specially trained nurses provide women’s health checks, including a pap smear, STI testing, breast awareness and contraceptive advice.” Qualified nurses Leah Ward and Kerry Campbell are specialists in women’s health, cervical screening trainers and providers. Ward, who is studying for a master of advanced nursing practice, has qualifications in sexual and reproductive health and is an adviser on HIV and hepatitis C. “Cervical cancer is the third most common cancer in women worldwide,” Campbell says. “It’s caused by a virus that 80 per cent of women will have at some stage in their lives.

“Women most at risk of cervical cancer are those who do not attend regular screening – therefore the best prevention is routine screening.” Family Medical Centre recommends pap smears begin between the ages of 18 and 21 (as long as the woman has been sexually active for two years) and continue until the age of 70. Women with concerns about their health or wanting to prevent illness can make an appointment to see one of the many qualified nurses at the clinic. Family Medical Centre is celebrating 28 years of medical care for the Sunbury community and welcomes new patients.

And then there are winter accessories: chunky fashion jewellery, and faux fur bags, hats and shoes – animals and bank balances can breathe a relieved sigh. Must-haves saluted at Milan Fashion Week are chunky-knit scarves, floral fabrics, and ankle boots with pointed toes, studs, metallic detailing, buckles, zips, fur and animal prints. Melbourne fashion dictates, however, are not tied to the catwalk. From Fitzroy hipsters to Chapel Street label-chasers, Melbourne is essentially free spirited – just as all fashion should be.

inter is all about rugging up in style and even if the skies are drab and dreary it doesn’t mean clothes should follow suit. Of course, there’s always a place for black (who would recognise Melbourne without its favourite fashion shade) but there are some brighter options on the fashion horizon. London Fashion Week for this autumn/winter pointed to dusty pink and red as the hot new colours – and doesn’t red signify power? All good news for today’s empowered ladies. Turtle necks, leopard and snake prints, medieval sleeves (loose, with a split) and super-shiny PVC skirts and pants are on-trend blasts from the past. Other winter trends are floral prints in reds and purples with blackbased backgrounds, and lace for something girly and romantic. And over-sized sunglasses…again.

RETIRE TO A COUNTRY CLUB

Real Estate Today

Value packed homes to take your worries away. The “Walkability” Factor Much has been written over the years about desirable features and factors which influence a decision on purchasing a home, and some might be repeated here. But the latest buzzword around the real estate markets is in “walkability” – the ease with which you and your family can walk to wherever you wish to go in the vicinity. A recent program on the ABC discussed this newly discovered “wow” factor, the view being put that an ageing population, young families who need to use prams or strollers, a person with some infirmity, even bicycle enthusiasts - all see the advantage of easy walking over friendly terrain to reach the shops or other facilities. It’s also undoubtedly healthy. Then of course there are the other factors, such as:- Proximity: How close are the schools if you have a family, hospitals, shopping centres and parks. Services: There are services that can make your life easier you may like to be near such as public transport including buses, trains and even ferries. A local train station within walking distance is quite valued by many. Amenities: These are things that make the property more pleasant to live in. They might include beautiful tree-lined streets, wide boulevards, heritage or uniquely designed homes, a cul-de-sac, or fresh and sweet smelling air. Potential: If the property has potential to be tenanted, renovated or to simply grow in value over time, it is in a great advantage. If you’re looking for a property to purchase or to sell, we at Dunlop Real Estate are here to help. Feel free to phone me, John Dunlop on 9744 2555 at any time or to call into our friendly offices at Sunbury and Gisborne for assistance.

Rural spread just right for a gallop This Gisborne ‘ranch’ is perfect for country living and horsey pursuits, writes Carole Levy

B

uff up the saddles and adjust the stirrups – this property of about 2.2 hectares will have horsey types ready for a good gallop. All is in place for equine pursuits, from tack room and sand arena to paddock shelters and loose boxes. The land is flat and sheltered by rows of dense shrubbery and views of distant hills accentuate the feel of open, rural landscape. The western red cedar homestead with wraparound verandah has a homey, comfy feel that wouldn’t frown on muddy riding boots

at the door. A timber-lined cathedral ceiling above the living area reflects the generosity of surrounding land, laminated floorboards underscore easy upkeep, and modern updates meet today’s standards. In the living hub, a wood heater is great for snuggling up to and an east-facing, step-down room with windows on three sides promises to be a winter sun trap minus fuel costs. Come summertime, vertical blinds will shield any glare. The compact kitchen has stone-look laminated benchtops, white vinyl-wrap

cupboards, an electric wall oven, electric cooktop and a dishwasher. The carpeted main bedroom (off the living area) has an airconditioner, walk-through twin wardrobes and a smartly refurbished en suite. Two more bedrooms (one with wardrobe) are down a hallway, as are an updated laundry, and a bright new bathroom that incorporates a separate shower room. Work, rest and play are looking pretty balanced at this ranch – and it’s only a few minutes’ drive to town.

Impressive Lions roar a warning By Pat Nolan Sunbury’s performance against Bacchus Marsh on Saturday sent a message to the Ballarat Football League that the Lions have awoken from their slumber. The match was hardly a spectacle that will live long in the memories of many. But it was the fashion in which the reigning premiers picked the young Cobras apart that will leave other premiership contenders painfully aware of Sunbury’s power. After a tense start, with Bacchus Marsh leading 20 minutes into the match at Clarke Oval, the Eastern Lions broke free of the shackles to kick 14 of the next 16 goals. Heavy rain and a fighting last quarter from the visitors prevented a 100-point plus margin, but Sunbury still went on to win 18.16 (124) to 7.6 (48). It was the big names that drove Sunbury forward, with the forward line at its imposing best. Jamie Lobb did not play after learning mid-week he had a broken

foot, while Ryan Monzell was a late withdrawal after breaking his little finger at the gym on Friday night. David Kovacevic was dominant in the ruck, often giving first use to the likes of captain Jay Cheep and the resurgent Ross Sleight. Cheep booted four goals, while Sleight helped himself to three. Full-forward Simon Clarke, showing he’s not far off peak form, also booted three goals. With Matthew Medcraft, Jack Sullivan and Dale Cuinik also lingering in the forward arc, the Lions’ forward line was arguably at its strongest so far this year. “I think the rain might have stopped us from having a 25 to 30-goal win, to be honest,” Sunbury coach Rick Horwood said. “There were some really good signs. I thought we adapted well to their style ... we couldn’t see them kicking a winning score with so many numbers back.” Sunbury has firmed as favourite to claim second spot, sitting one game and almost 10 percentage points ahead of third-placed Redan.
