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.
