CONDOLENCES               

Graham Larcombe

It is with great sadness that we remember Graham Larcombe. Graham passed away on January 25 after a long struggle with cancer. Graham was 62.

Graham worked at Liverpool Council in the 1990s and 2000s within the Economic Development and Major project teams. Graham was a strong and passionate believer in Liverpool’s potential as a regional centre and as a hub for technology and jobs.

Graham went on in his career to craft strong credentials in economic development and urban development doing work both domestically and internationally. As a Director of Strategic Economics, Graham’s most recent involvement in Liverpool was to develop in partnership with SGS Economics an important piece of work detailing existing and future opportunities for the Liverpool Health and Education Precinct. This work has been important for Council in pursuing new economic development prospects for Liverpool arising from the location of health, medical and education facilities in the heart of the city centre.

In his time here at Liverpool Council Graham was respected as a mentor and leader to the staff of Council and as someone who was always prepared to make available his knowledge and expertise to staff and stakeholders.

Our sympathies go to Graham’s daughter Sophia, step daughter Lauren, niece Jacqueline and sister Louise.

Graham’s funeral service will be held at the chapel, Parsons Funeral Home, 278 Princes Highway Bulli on Friday February 6 at 2pm.

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun     Seconded: Clr Hadid

That Council express its deepest sympathy for the recent passing of Mr Graham Larcombe and a letter of condolence be sent to his family    

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Excellence in the Environment Award

 

125 tonnes of waste material has been dropped off at Liverpool’s Community Recycling Centre since it opened in July last year. Considering that this waste would have otherwise been land-fill, Liverpool City Council should be proud of its renewed commitment to sustainable waste disposal and the protection of our environment.

 

The benefits of this centre, a first for Sydney, have not gone unnoticed. We were recently honoured with a high commendation in the Local Government NSW Excellence in the Environment Awards - Resource Recovery division.

 

Such an honour is an endorsement of Liverpool’s sustainability agenda and the collaborative approach taken by Council, the NSW State Government and residents to local sustainable service delivery.

 

The NSW Government supported the initiative by way of a $250,000 grant from the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) as part of the Waste Less, Recycle More waste initiative, but it is our local residents who deserve the highest praise for their patronage of the centre.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.      Notes that the Liverpool Community Recycling centre was ‘Highly Commended’ in the LGNSW Excellence in the Environment Awards in the ‘Resource Recovery’ division.

 

2.      Congratulates the residents of Liverpool for getting involved with and embracing this opportunity to contribute to our sustainability.

 

3.      Thanks Council staff for their hard work in the creation of this centre.

 

4.      Thanks the NSW Government including the NSW Minister for the Environment and Heritage the Hon. Rob Stokes MP, and the Member for Menai Ms Melanie Gibbons MP for their contribution to the creation of this centre.

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 


 

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Relationship with Penrith City Council

 

Last year, Council resolved to write to Penrith City Council to request an apology in relation to Clr Marcus Cornish's inappropriate and offensive statements about Liverpool and our community’s diversity which we celebrate and cherish.

 

Liverpool City Council prides itself on our City’s diversity. We are glad to be home to so many people from so many backgrounds who give our city its richness and variety. We are a tolerant city, we are a welcoming city, who celebrate our history and past, and who know that we are stronger for the good we see in one another. We refuse to have others try to tear us apart.

 

I would like to thank Mayor Ross Fowler OAM on his concern about the statements made by Clr Cornish. The Mayor relayed that Clr Cornish himself has refused to apologise in person for his comments. To their great credit Penrith Council through their Mayor have categorically refuted those views and expressed their solidarity and cohesion with the Liverpool. I want to thank him on our behalf for this.

 

We at Liverpool City Council value deeply the role that Penrith plays with us in promoting our region and advocating for the people of Western Sydney. This region and its diverse and dynamic people is so much of the future of our nation.

Liverpool City Council appreciates the kind words of the Mayor of Penrith, and is glad that Penrith stands with Liverpool in rejecting the outrageous statements made by Clr Cornish.

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Acknowledge the letter from Mayor of Penrith Council outlining their concerns about the statements made by Councillor Cornish.

 

2.    Welcome the positive attitude of Penrith Council towards Liverpool, and their expression of solidarity and cohesion with our communities.

 

3.    Write to the Mayor of Penrith thanking him for his letter, and expressing our gratitude for the collaborative approach that he and most other councillors have promoted.

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Former Court House, Bigge Street

 

For 150 years, the Former Court House operated as Liverpool’s Court, and in the early Colony was an important building in the development of our judicial system.

 

An interesting building with a complicated past, it was commenced in the 1820’s, and was added to and modified over time. It is actually one of the earliest surviving convict barracks, perhaps only predated by Hyde Park Barracks itself in NSW. 

 

It faces Bigge Street with its impressive gates, across from Bigge Park and the railway station, and with a remarkably intact furnished court inside. It is a building that is crying out to be open, visited, and enjoyed. This is one of our key assets when it comes to activating our city and celebrating our past.

 

At the end of last year, the Courthouse drew an estimate 10,000 people over 4 nights with a pop-up activation. This shows its potential as an entertainment hub that draws people into our City.

 

I understand that the matter of its state heritage listing has been discussed for decades within Council and the community. It was also listed on the Register of the National Estate, and is listed on the National Trust of Australia (NSW) Register of Heritage Places. There is a strong case for state heritage listing, due to its historic significance to whole of New South Wales. In its assessment against the State Heritage Register, it notes that:

 

The site, as a working courthouse for over 150 years, demonstrates the history of the judicial service in the Colony and Liverpool area.

 

I understand that our property and heritage staffs are doing great work to this end, and I want personally to commend them. I hope we see it celebrated and enjoyed.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Write to the state government to inform them that we will be commencing a process of seeking state heritage listing for the Former Court House, Liverpool.

 

2.    Write to our local and federal Members and the National Trust seeking support.

 

3.    Prepare a nomination form for listing it on the State Heritage Register.

 

4.    Seek State Government assistance with any necessary repairs and upgrades, such as for disabled access, to assist with the building's activation.

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.
