On May 6, Labor leader Dean Winter announced that Labor would be backing Macquarie Point Stadium. “Tasmania’s economy has slowed,” Mr Winter said. “Building companies are going bust. “There are no major infrastructure projects scheduled to come online once the Bridgewater Bridge is finished. “A stadium will mean thousands of jobs in construction, including hundreds of apprenticeships. “That’s why Labor will be backing a new stadium.” He emphasised the need for a local content plan for the stadium project. “The last thing Tasmania needs is a repeat of the Royal Hobart Hospital redevelopment with countless contractors coming from outside the state and leaving just as quickly. “I’ve said we’ll continue to hold Jeremy Rockliff to account for delivering this stadium and a local content plan is a key part of that.” The Mac Point multipurpose stadium, as proposed by the Mac Point Development Corporation (MPDC), will be roofed, have 23,000 seats and be the home ground for a Tasmanian AFL team. The MPDC is a statutory authority and state agency responsible for overseeing the planning and delivery of the multipurpose stadium. Dean Winter said Labor’s support does not mean the Premier will be let off the hook for the promises he has made. “He needs to deliver his capped spend of $375 million, with private investors to cover any shortfall,” Mr Winter said. “While we will not be standing in the way of the current Macquarie Point stadium proposal, we still hold concerns about the deliverability of the project. “The Premier should not rule out the Stadium 2.0 project.” The Mac 2.0 project proposal includes a site for a private hospital, social and affordable housing, a transport interchange for ferry access and hotels as well as a stadium with a retractable roof. TUESDAY, 14 mAY, 2024 ISSUE No. 19 Labor leader Dean Winter has announced Labor will be backing the Macquarie Point Stadium. Mr Winter spoke with union resprentatives about the importance of maximising local jobs and traning opportunities from the stadium build.(PS) Labor supports Mac Point Stadium

(PS) Tasmania Police had a specific focus on patron behaviour within licence premises throughout April. Inspector John Toohey said the focus was about creating a safe and enjoyable environment for all patrons. “The Southern District Licensing Unit in collaboration with licensed venues, issued 26 barring orders and 13 infringements throughout April,” Inspector Toohey said. “Barring orders are an essential tool in protecting the community by stopping individuals from entering licensed premises where their behaviour poses a risk to public safety or breaches liquor licensing laws. “Barring orders may be issued when a person is at-risk as a result of drinking alcohol; if they have committed an offence or behaved in an offensive or disorderly manner on or near a licensed premises; or there are reasonable grounds to do so.” Infringements were issued for offences including act in violent, quarrelsome, disorderly manner on licensed/permit premises; person subject to Barring Order enter or attempt to enter relevant licensed/permit premises; and fail to leave licensed premises when required to do so. Police focus on unruly behaviour A former Japanese Fisheries patrol ship has been brought to Hobart by the Captain Paul Watson Foundation to combat illegal whaling in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary. The vessel sailed from Busan, Korea and docked in Hobart on Friday, May 3. Bob Brown said he was very happy to welcome the Northern Horizon, the first ship from the Captain Paul Watson Foundation to come into Hobart. Formerly named the Bandero, the Northern Horizon sailed on a single voyage permit to Australia under a Mongolian Flag. The ship was recently purchased covertly by Watson’s Foundation from the Japanese government. Captain Locky MacLean said months of preparation went into acquiring a suitable vessel to restart southern ocean campaigns. “Though this vessel will be used to curtail whaling in Antarctic waters, there is no denying Japan builds some of the best quality vessels,” said Captain MacLean. “This ship is tailor-made for what we do.” Captain MacLean has helped acquire 10 ships for Captain Watson over the two decades he has sailed with him, including the former Japanese Oceanographic Research vessel Seifu Maru in 2012, which was also unveiled in Hobart and named Sam Simon, after the Producer of the Simpsons television show, who donated funds toward the vessel’s acquisition. Covertly acquired ship to hinder whalers The Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) and Laurel House hosted a symposium designed to spur collective action to prevent and respond to sexual violence in Tasmania. The two-day Courageous Conversations event featured interstate and local speakers including experts, authors and victim-survivors. CEO of Laurel House Kathryn Fordyce and Acting CEO of SASS Sandi Doherty said in a statement that they were holding this symposium to move Tasmania towards being a place where victim-survivors are supported to heal free of stigma and shame - towards a future free from child sexual abuse. Speakers included the CEO of the National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse Doctor Leanne Beagley, the Director at the Australian Centre of Child Protection Professor Leah Bromfield, Representatives of Tasmania Police and the Tasmanian Government. Ms Doherty said putting victim survivors’ voices first is key to eliminating sexual harm in the state. “Bringing together academic and lived expertise is incredibly powerful for systemic change,” she said. Ms Fordyce said we know that at least one in four children in Tasmania experience some form of sexual assault. “To make meaningful change, we must go beyond listening and start to act on what victim-survivors of all ages courageously share,” she said. Symposium to spur action On May 1, Hobart Airport announced the receipt of $60 million in funding from the Federal Government to support the Hobart Airport Runway Upgrade project. The full cost of the upgrade for non-stop international flights between Tasmania and Asia is $130 million. Currently, Tasmania is the only state or territory in Australia without a runway strong enough to allow for wide-body aircraft operations. Once complete, aircraft such as the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A350 will be able to operate at Hobart Airport. Hobart Airport CEO Norris Carter said the $60 million in federal funding combined with the airport’s $70 million would unlock unprecedented opportunities across Tasmania. “This is one of the most significant projects in the Airport’s 60-year history, both in terms of investment and opportunity,” Mr Carter said. “The combined $130 million investment will pave the way for a trifecta of opportunities across tourism, trade and the Antarctic. “When this project is complete in 2025, it will open the door for international travellers to be able to fly directly to and from Hobart to Asia and beyond, removing the time and cost burden that comes with additional stops that put off many tourists. “It also brings opportunities for Tasmanians to travel one-stop to Asia and Europe without the need for mainland stopovers.” The project will create 197 jobs during construction, and once completed it is forecast to support over 1200 jobs, plus an annual economic boost of $122 million. National airport pavement specialists Downer will deliver the project. Downer EGM Stuart Billing said this is a reflection of Downer’s ongoing investment into Tasmania. “Our approach to constructing the works draws upon Downer’s extensive experience in delivering airfield projects, minimising disruption and ensuring the safety of aircraft and the travelling public,” Mr Billing said. “We’re proud to be involved with this project which will have such a positive economic impact on the state.” The Runway Upgrade project is part of the Airport’s Master Plan.

hobart weekly news I TUESDAY, 14 MAY, 2024 3 National Road Safety Week launched on May 5 with Tasmania Police reaffirming its commitment to reducing the number of deaths and injuries on our roads. Assistant Commissioner Adrian Bodnar said eight lives have already been lost on Tasmanian roads this year and more than 114 people have suffered serious injuries in crashes. “We cannot overlook the devastating impact of these crashes on our communities,” he said. “During National Road Safety Week Tasmania Police will play an active role in promoting road safety through targeted enforcement activities and community engagement initiatives. “Every life lost and every injury sustained on our roads is a tragic reminder of the importance of road safety and our goal is to prevent crashes and ensure that everyone on the road is following the rules. “Collaboration between police and the community is essential to keeping our roads safe and members of the public are encouraged to contact us if they witness reckless driving, hooning behaviour or other driving offences.” More than 114 serious injuries As part of National Road Safety Week in Tasmania, the life-like sculpture known as ‘Graham’ is on display at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and will stay there for three months to help get the road safety message across. In 2016, Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission partnered with a leading trauma surgeon, a crash investigation expert and internationally renowned Melbourne artist Patricia Piccinini to create a lifelike sculpture that shows what humans might look like if we were built to survive on our roads. Graham is designed to survive crashes, highlight human vulnerability and encourage visitors to think differently about road safety. During National Road Safety Week (NRSW) Tassie landmarks have been lit up yellow, including the Bridge of Remembrance, the Aquatic Centre, Hobart City Council buildings and the Tasman Bridge.

4 hobart weekly news I TUESDAY, 14 MAY, 2024 Prepare your advanced care The Public Trustee is hosting a range of seminars across the state for Law Week to provide clear instructions on managing your legal, medical and financial affairs. There will be a free information session held in Hobart on May 22 at Rydges Hotel, North Hobart to discuss estate and advance care planning. (PS) An installation that shows the result of a serious road crash has been unveiled on Hobart’s waterfront during National Road Safety Week (NRSW). The installation was commissioned by RACT to provide a challenging visual of the impact of road crashes as part of its latest high-visibility campaign to highlight the impact of road trauma on young people. RACT Group Chief Executive Mark Mugnaioni said NRSW provided an opportunity to reflect on the devastating impact that road trauma has on individuals, families and communities. “With the highest road toll of any Australian state, Tasmania has already had a devastating start to the year on our roads with eight deaths and 114 serious injuries. “Last year, distraction while driving contributed to more than 11 per cent of deaths and almost 16 per cent of serious injuries on Tasmanian roads. “It’s crucial the community comes together and that each of us takes responsibility for our actions to create a safer driving environment for all. “That’s why we are asking Tasmanians to sign a road safety pledge to make a concerted effort to reduce behaviours that contribute to crashes: speeding, inattention, mobile phone use, drink and drug driving and not wearing a seatbelt.” Mr Mugnaioni was joined at the launch on May 6 by 39-year-old Hobart resident Kirby Barker who fell asleep behind the wheel five minutes from home. Miss Barker is still dealing with the physical consequences of that serious car crash 18 years later. “I shattered both of my legs and numerous bones in my face, and it took me one and a half years before I could walk again,” Miss Barker said. “I’m still impacted by my accident today. “I have regular medical appointments and continue to have procedures and surgeries. “This will be lifelong. “I also have to be mindful of how far I walk and the activities that I do during the day as my ankles often become swollen and painful. “My message to other people who are driving and feel tired is to listen to your body and take a break when you need to.” Mr Mugnaioni said that while NRSW was just one week, efforts to reduce Tasmania’s terrible road trauma record were ongoing. “Together, the actions we take today will make our roads safer for tomorrow and reduce the number of tragic incidents on Tasmania’s roads.” The RACT unveiled an installation on the waterfront on May 6 to highlight the impact of road trauma on young people. The installation is part of the National Road Safety Week awareness campaign. Confronting installation to raise awareness May 20-26 is Law Week and the Public Trustee, Office of the Public Guardian and Palliative Care Tasmania are urging Tasmanians to take action to make your financial, medical and legal wishes known. Public Trustee CEO Todd Kennedy stated that Law Week was an important opportunity to continue the conversation with the community about planning for the future. “Unfortunately, half of all Tasmanians pass away without a will, which can have a significant impact on those left behind,” he said. An estate plan typically includes an enduring power of attorney (to make financial decisions), an enduring guardianship (to make medical or personal decisions), an advanced care directive (to provide details care instructions to your heath care providers) and a will to distribute your estate when you pass away. These are separate documents, each covering a distinct and important aspect of your care and estate. “Having a will and estate plan is like having a road map for providing protection and support for yourself and your loved ones if something ever happens to you,” Mr Kennedy said. “If you do not have estate planning documents, the Tasmanian Civil and Administration Tribunal (TASCAT) may need to appoint someone to help you make medical or financial decisions if you lose decision-making capacity due to an accident or illness. “TASCAT can appoint a loved one to support you. “If there is no one willing or able to assist you or where there are conflicts of interest, the Public Trustee can be appointed to support financial decision-making or the Public Guardian to support medical or personal decision-making. “If you pass away without a will, your deceased estate will be distributed according to the Tasmanian Intestacy Act 2010. “Your loved ones may need to apply to the Supreme Court of Tasmania for a grant of Letters of Administration to distribute the estate. “This can be a difficult process to coordinate and may not necessarily reflect your wishes. “It can also cause additional emotional and financial distress for your family and loved ones during an already challenging time. “As part of the Law Week program, we will be hosting free seminars around the state, discussing how important it is to make a will, estate and advance care plan to provide clear instructions to manage your legal, medical and financial affairs. “The free information session will be held in Hobart on May 22 at Rydges Hotel, North Hobart to discuss estate and advance care planning and answer questions. “Don’t forget to book via the Public Trustee website. “If people can’t make one of the sessions they can always call us to make an appointment to discuss getting their ducks in a row and how we can help them plan for their future. “Alternatively, there is a presentation online on our website.” The Public Trustee can prepare both a will and enduring power of attorney documents from $140 for a single person or $210 for a couple and if you are a pensioner or seniors cardholder, they can prepare these documents for free if the Public Trustee is appointed as executor or attorney. The Public Trustee can also prepare enduring guardianship documents from $140 for a single person or $210 for a couple. You can prepare your advanced care directive by downloading the form. It is best to chat with your doctor and family about your preferences. For more information, please visit www.publictrustee.tas.gov.au or call 1800 068 784.

Hobart Weekly News wants to shine a light on the local news of Hobart and the southern communities. W16879 Coles has begun a state-wide rebranding of the 9/11 bottle shop chain they acquired recently. Federal Group sold all 9/11 stores in early 2024 for an undisclosed amount. Coles launched the first Liquorland store in Tasmania in August 2022, in the new supermarket at Glebe Hill Village. Rebranding plans have been lodged with the City of Hobart detailing changes to signage that Coles hopes to make as soon as possible. Coles Liquor CEO Michael Courtney said the acquisition demonstrates the confidence they have in Tasmania. “We’re looking forward to continuing on the great 9/11 legacy by supporting local suppliers and the community and providing great value and excellent service,” he said. All staff will be offered continued employment at the rebranded Liquorland outlets. Bottle shop rebranding The City of Hobart carried out a fuel reduction burn on Tolmans Hill in bushland between Woodcutters Road, Hakea and Pulchella drives on Tuesday, May 7. This burn was critical to protect homes immediately adjacent to blue gum and white peppermint forest. This forest has remained unburnt since the 1998 Ridgeway/Mt Nelson bushfire. Some smoke was produced during and after the burn, though every effort was made to minimise the impact on nearby areas. Tolmans Hill fuel reduction burn The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) announced on April 30 that they had commenced civil penalty proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia against Oak Tasmania for contraventions of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (NDIS Act). It is alleged Oak Tasmania failed to comply with its conditions of registration and with the NDIS Code of Conduct when providing support and services safely and competently to some participants in its care. Some of the alleged incidents include failing to provide access to adequately trained support staff, failing to properly manage risks to participants, failing to properly administer medical devices and medication and failing to properly supervise an adolescent in their care. The NDIS Commission also alleges Oak Tasmania failed on more than 600 separate occasions to report incidents, including incidents that involved serious injury and neglect, within the required timeframes under the law. Acting NDIS Commissioner Michael Phelan said allegations of conduct impacting the safety of NDIS participants, including the failure to report incidents, are taken very seriously by the NDIS Commission. “The NDIS Code of Conduct applies to all providers and workers to keep everyone safe,” said Acting Commissioner Phelan. “Providers must ensure their staff are properly trained and that any injuries or harm suffered by participants are promptly reported to the NDIS Commission as required under the NDIS Rules. “The NDIS Commission will hold accountable any provider that does not comply with the law.” Disability Voices Tasmania (DVT) said they were alarmed to learn of the proceedings. “Whilst Disability Voices Tasmania is extremely distressed to hear that people with disability in Tasmania have been let down by one of Tasmania’s most well-known disability social enterprises, we are heartened to know that the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is taking real and decisive action to protect NDIS participants who rely on this service,” DVT said in a statement. “Disability Voices Tasmania has long argued for better training for workers, more disability involvement at executive and board level, stronger safeguards put in place and stronger regulatory oversight of services to protect Tasmanians with disability. “A poorly trained, casualised workforce can often result in poor quality service delivery and means that the people who pay for this are those that have to use the service. “Let this be a warning to all support services in Tasmania. “We expect better protection and outcomes for those most exposed to service and systemic failures in Tasmanian society.” The NDIS Commission is the national regulator of support and services provided to people with disability who participate in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). These powers include seeking civil penalties when a provider has allegedly failed to deliver support and services safely and competently, with care and skill. Leading care provider facing court On May 7, the Hobart Weekly Newsreported that land at Cornelian Bay Point had been leased to TasWater by the City of Hobart. TasWater must only bring clean fill to the site and will be responsible for restoring the land after the lease period.
