What's happening at Clifton Views

This is the newsletter for the tenants

December 2011

Thursday, December 01, 2011

Welcome to all our new Clifton Views Residents – if you would like to advertise your business or item for sale through our newsletter please let us know.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

It’s time to make Clifton View twinkle and shine – we welcome any Christmas decorations/lights from your balconies!  What a great thing to do – take the kids around to see all the pretty lights in your own complex!  Please make sure they are safely installed and cannot cause any damage to your property!  Let’s light up for Christmas!

CONGRATULATIONS

To the residents that put on the art exhibition, handmade jewelry and other exhibits in the Residents Lounge last weekend – what talented people we have in Clifton Views and surrounding areas.  We also encourage you to continue to do these exhibitions – you will find some of the artwork in our office on display – Meridy is extremely talented – the ladies have also been talking about having a market day and a notice board near our office.  We have now ordered the notice board and the ladies have also volunteered to maintain the board.  It will be up soon – anything you wish to place on the notice board please drop into our office or our letterbox being in block 1 – Body Corporate.  Thank you Meridy and friends it was a fantastic exhibition – congratulations!

As we are entering into the silly season and we want to remind you of who to call in difficult situations.  Please remember your noise levels, let you neighbors know you are having a party or friends over.  If your neighbors are too noisy please approach them yourselves – not aggressively – I am sure the situation can be resolved with a mature approach.  Break ins are higher over the Christmas period – presents to steal, people going away – if you are going away let your neighbor know – let us know too!  Put these numbers into your phones or on the fridge.

 

SECURITY AND POLICE ISSUES

 

SECURITY AND POLICE ISSUES

CALL:
Police link 131444 (
free call from home phone) - To report a crime that has already occurred and you do not know the offender. For example break and enters, stolen or damage to vehicle or property.  They will take the report immediately and give a crime report number which can then be used when contacting your insurance company. They also arrange forensics to attend for fingerprints and photos.  

Smithfield Police Station 4057 1900 - To report if anything is occurring at the time of the phone call (assaults, noise complaints, domestic violence, disturbances, hooning, people behaving suspiciously). If it is after hours it automatically connects to the Police Communications Center who will detail a crew to attend, depending on priority of other jobs.

000 Emergency - If something is happening or is about to happen that will cause serious injury or death to any person.   It is an offence to call 000 for non- life threatening matters.

Crime Stoppers 1800333000 (free call) to report anonymously information about people or suspicious behavior that may be criminal in nature.   For example Drug activity, selling of stolen goods, identifying wanted persons.

NEW YEARS EVE

If you wish to party on all night – we and all your neighbors suggest you go elsewhere to do so as it will not be tolerated in a Complex – we must all remember that there is close to 500 people in Clifton Views, we all live in close proximity to each other and need to respect each other’s comfort of living – thank you!

PARKING SIGNS

Months ago the Body Corporate installed signage re parking in front of fire hydrants – they clearly ask you not to do so – please refrain from doing this and parking in front of your garages – we receive so many complaints when people cannot get into their own garages.  This is also something you need to work out with your neighbor, approach them calmly and ask them not to do so.  It will be a disastrous situation if someone is parked in front of the hydrants and the fire brigade is called and cannot access that particular hydrant.

Parking up on walk ways is also not acceptable – pure laziness if you can’t park your car in a car park and walk to your apartment.

RENTAL RECEIPTS

If you pay your rent through our office and need your rental receipts please come to the office to collect during our office hours.  You may also email us and we will email you a copy of your ledger if you need this.  Receipts will not be put into letterboxes anymore.  It is not an RTA requirement.

GATES

The first security gate was out of action again this week as someone has knocked the sensor out yet again – this happens at least 4 -6 times per month – we are unsure who is doing this, if it is a resident that drives badly or doesn’t have a remote or someone outside of the complex trying to get in – we ask when these gates are out of action you take extra care on who is in the complex if you see anything suspicious please notify the police and or us if during the day.  Also if you see people in the pools that you know do not live here please let us know immediately.  Your help is appreciated in keeping Clifton Views as safe as possible.

GARBAGE

A simple request – when one side of the bins are full – lift the lid to the other side and you will find it is empty and you can put your rubbish in that side – too many people just piling rubbish as high as it will go on one side and nothing in the other side because the lid is down!  IF ONE BIN IS FULL USE ANOTHER BIN OR LIFT THE LID TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BIN!

Nappies are not for the bins near the BBQ areas – please do not use these bins for those items, or your house rubbish because you could not be bothered walking to the bin rooms.  Thank you!

Coles shopping trolleys should be returned to Coles.

What to do if your power goes out

If your power goes out, from the safety of your own home or workplace, look out the window or contact neighbors to check if the interruption is affecting only your property or is more widespread.

If you can see or hear something that could help identify the problem, like hanging power lines or a loud bang, stay well clear and contact Ergon on 13 22 96.  Precise details will assist our emergency crews to restore power.

In case of a life threatening emergency, call Triple Zero (000) or 13 16 70.

Remember, during a storm or cyclone or when the power is out, telephone lines and mobile phone networks may be congested or damaged so please be patient.

A REMINDER PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE THIS TO THE LAST MINUTE!

The above websites and telephone number will help you.

Please be assured that Clifton Views is built to a Category 5 Cyclone – you will be safe in your apartments BUT you will need to remove all furniture and items from balconies and lock up tight!  Do not go out into the Cyclone – the eye is quite dangerous and the Cyclone has not finished.

Make sure you have batteries for a radio so you can keep updated by the local radio stations.
