Lewis & Pheasant Nominees Pty Ltd takes no responsibility for the service received or quality of goods advertised in this newsletter from people/residents and businesses


We have noticed a lot of push bikes, scooters, prams and shoes in stairwells.  Please ensure these items are out of walk ways and kept tidy at all times.  If they are in walk ways they become a safety issue – also bikes with the handle bars protruding into the stairwells.  Please ensure they are not interfering in any way to the stairwells.  NO MOTOR BIKES ARE TO BE PARKED UNDER THE STAIRWELLS AT ANY TIME.  Thank you.


Children on bikes and scooters!  We can only ask that parents ask children to wear the appropriate safety gear when riding bikes and scooters through the complex – too many children are left to ride freely without any protection – riding around and around the fountain is not on – too many times there has been cars having to stop and wait for children, also some very near misses.  Children riding in the pouring rain jumping speed humps at full speed is also very dangerous.  The Body Corporate will accept no responsibility for any injuries caused.

We have placed SMOKING BINS at the BBQ areas - we and other residents would appreciate it if you could use them.  The ground and or chairs are not an ashtray!


The Body Corporate By-Laws state that if children are under 12 they need to be supervised by an adult at all times, this does not mean by parents sitting on balconies watching or in BBQ areas watching – you must be in the pool enclosure with the children.

The figure heads in the pool areas are not for children to climb on and jump off – please re-frain children from doing so, also throwing the stones into the pool plus hands full of mud pies and dirt!


As there is now an increase in Residents at Clifton Views parking will be an issue.  Can we strongly ask you to:

  1. Park in your own garage or allocated car space – NOT in someone else’s car space even if you think the apartment is empty or they are away
  2. DO NOT park in front of the DO NOT PARK signs which are near the fire hydrants
  3. Do not park in front of your garage – double parked
  4. If you have 3 – 4 cars please be considerate to others that have 1 or 2 and that want to be able to have their visitors park in the visitors car spaces

We are not here to sort out parking complaints – pretty much common sense and courtesy to your neighbors – thank you.



The garbage rooms are for garbage – NOT household items such as furniture and or white goods – ALSO not for Coles shopping trolleys – you walk it here you walk it back next time you go or call Coles yourselves to have them picked up!


When moving in or out PLEASE break down all boxes so they fit in bins with room for everyone else’s rubbish!


Parents – please make sure when sending the kids to the bin rooms they can reach the bins – rubbish is being left on the ground and thrown – we have had rats, birds and it is snake season – PLEASE be considerate to your fellow residents.  Also too many times we have seen children running into the bin rooms near our office only to run straight back out without looking for cars – there have been some near misses!
