More trouble at Parkview

There was another disturbance at the troubled ‘Parkview’ development in Holt, West Belconnen last night.

Residents were again evacuated (see previous story) from the building by the fire alarm at around 11:40pm.

There was no damage to property, and the alarm appeared to be false this time.

the ACT Fire Brigade determined the alarm was trigged by a smoke detector on common property, outside a specific unit on level one.

The AFP attended and spoke to the resident in question, who is known to the police, and was heard by residents to be speaking extremely rapidly and was felt to be extremely high. When asked if the resident could be removed, due to continual problems the resident was causing the complex, the AFP replied that unfortunately, even if he were to be removed to the PSU, he would be back at the complex within 4 hours.

The residents of the Parkview development are continually suffering from broken sleep, disturbances, drug dealers and users, syringes left in stair wells, and lack of security.
The resident in question is well known to mental health, but they do not appear to be taking any action to handle the situation.

Thumper, I might just end up doing that. My brat goes to school at Fraser so its closer anyway.

heh.. “the pub”
you mean the 2 registered sports clubs, and the two taverns ?

and the pub…

There is one thing going for that complex, its proximity to the shops 🙂

thumper, thats basically what they said last night “nothin we can do.”
el, yes, there was another evac last night. ALmost noone bothered leaving though. it’s apparently the 4th within a week.

I live in holt and love the place, although I’ve started taking records of the cars that land in my front garden, on average about 1 every 3 months – a hazard of living in the street everybody loves to think they are Peter Brock on.

Mental health in this town is an absolute disgrace.

I totally sympathise with the Police as there is virtually nothing they can do.

Evee, move to Charny, it’s a lot quiter since the mob that now terrorises Holt and kippax has moved on…


hmm. it’s a shame. I thought that was going gto be a good dinner, but no, no, we got evacuated again.

All over Australia more moeny needs to be spent on mental health facilities.

Unfortunately it isn’t a vote winner, and most people don’t realise how non-existant mental health services are til a family member needs them.

Bring back full time mental health facilities. Who ever decided to integrate people, who may have issues into society, never thought about the rights of good well mannered civilians, who don’t wish to have their lives interrupted?

We can only blame another government budget cut, or were these funds needed to pay for another statue, arboretum, plaque, etc, etc, etc

Man I really need to move to somewhere else…any suggestions? Have to stay on this side of town though but out of Holt would be a good idea.

you could always plant a hot monkey bike and give the seears brothers a call…

West Belconnen: just like One Nation but we can spel.

West Belconnen: The Bogan Menace.

Holt and Kippax is the new Charny.

Next they’ll be eyeing up the land down near strathpine or parkwood for a remand centre…

perhaps the resident in question could be provided the care, support and assistance that is needed for them to live appropriately in common society. Failing that, perhaps the resident could be removed from a common society such as an apartment complex, until such time as they are able to clearly demonstrate an ability to live in such a society.

Something mental health is clearly failing to do.

I will not have these people touching my newly found pony club…

Charny is fine compared to Holt and Kippax these days.

Perhaps the resident in question could be relocated to the side show alley of the Charny Carny.
