CESC4NI Inc. CONVENTION, ENTERTAINMENT & SPORTS CENTRE FOR NORFOLK ISLAND

Friday, June 29, 2018


Our group of community members’ key objective is to achieve the development of an international standard purpose-built convention, entertainment, emergency and sports centre. This will provide the island a great venue for conferences, an indoor sports centre, a place for community concerts, events and school use as well as a haven for the community in an emergency. The rationale for the centre is to improve facilities and generate improved economic and financial performance outcomes for the visitor industry and related / downstream businesses in Norfolk Island. This will involve better utilisation of a significant proportion of the visitor infrastructure in Norfolk Island (e.g. the airport, much of the accommodation, transport providers, food and beverage suppliers, and tourism activity and attraction operators).


We are pleased to advise that the feasibility study for this project is now complete. We will now move to get council approval, land use approval, ownership established and funding for the plans to be done and costed sought. When we have the plans done and costing ascertained we will be able to go for major funding to have the centre built.


Anyone who is interested in progressing this project can contact me on email gonorfolkisland@gmail.com

Police Report - 29 June 2018

Wet Weather and Road Safety

As we start to get a bit more rain a reminder to motorists to please drive to the conditions. Wiping a few kilometres off your speed will ensure you have sufficient distance to stop should an unexpected incident or obstacle appear in front of you.

Check your vehicle to ensure it is roadworthy – having sufficient tread on your tyres to disperse water becomes essential. It also makes good sense to turn your headlights on a little earlier given the reduced visibility in the rain. Other drivers can sometimes get distracted in focusing on the rain, so having your headlights on provides a little more insurance that you will be observed in the oncoming traffic.

 

Police power to impound vehicles

 

Did you know that Police have the power to impound vehicles on the spot for seven days under section 40D of the Traffic Act 2010 for reckless, negligent or dangerous driving behaviour? (As well as for driving under the influence, driving a vehicle whilst unregistered or driving a vehicle in an un-roadworthy condition).

 

In the past couple of weeks, police have received multiple reports of driving behaviour by our younger drivers and riders that would qualify for this action.

Mieken aklan stromga in diis diehs – women’s leadership and development program

Friday, June 29, 2018


The Minister recently announced Government would fund a leadership program to strengthen local women’s knowledge and practice in good governance, financial management and risk management.  The Norfolk Islander’s Community Strategic Plan [2016-26] proposed a partnership be developed with the Australian Institute of Company Directors [AICD] to support such local development opportunities.  With the active support of the Mayor, the Administrator, the Office for Women [in PM&C] and DIRDC, this partnership with the AICD has been achieved.

Expressions of Interest are now being called from women living on the Island who would like to participate in this Foundations of Directorship training opportunity.  Information on the AICD and its Foundations training can be found on the AICD website.

Local women are invited to write a one-two page letter to the Administrator and outline:

  • Why they would like to participate in this training, and
  • Summarise their work and/or volunteering experience and the key positions they have held.

Expressions of Interest are to be lodged with the Administrator by Friday 27 July 2018.  Fifteen local women will be selected for scholarships to participate in this training which Mayor Adams will host.

The training will be held in September 2018.  Participants must be available to attend training on a Friday afternoon/evening, all day Saturday and Sunday, and a Monday morning.  A certificate will be awarded to participants who complete the training and they will also have an opportunity to become accredited with the AICD.

Women who are working and/or volunteering and want the opportunity to strengthen their leadership skills for their benefit and the benefit of their community, are encouraged to write to the Administrator by 27 July and apply for a training scholarship.  The Administrator will advise applicants of the outcome of the selection process during August.

Cheers
