spent over 100 days this past 2002 year protesting outside State Parliament without much support. There has been improper
use of the Protection of the Environment Act 93 section 276 Noise Abatement Directive, for 28 days.In an attempt to silence
Steffen Director General of Energy and Utilities, has written 18/12/2002 ( DIM Ref: D17768,
D16290@ D16609 MEU Ref: 02/01570 File 9092 ) "The Ministry of
Energy and Utilities has recently commenced proceedings for the review of the NSW Service and Installation Rules. We expect
the review of the New South Wales Service and installation Rules to take approximately one year to compleat." Effect
to bury this till after the elections.
Steffen also writes he believes my concerns have been addressed in previous correspondence. He is mistaken, unless that "addressed"
he referred to did not reach my hands. This issue has been documented as on going since response from the Minister
K Yeadon in August 2001. And written advice from the
Premier Carr that Energy Australia was not required to comply with The Marketing Code of Conduct, because it is not a
retailer of electrical energy.
The Regulation of the Electricity Supply Act has happened, There is documented evidence
that Property Owners have been set up to be responsible for the Insurance Liability of Electricity Supply line outside their
property. Pages 11 and 12 of the NSW Service and Installation Rules March 1999 show several diagrams the one thing in
common to all is the 'Point of Supply' always outside the boundary of the property. On page 16 is the mention of Considerations
of Potential Liability, and page 18 the Energy Supplier may ask the customer to do any of the following : Supply and install
an underground or overhead supply.
of and the refusal to respond honestly with definitive answers to my questions by these people is an indictment in itself.

among them. Also my concern that Questions on Notice were worded to avoid putting the Government in a difficult position.
Council ask Ratepayers to "retain ownership of Electricity Supply Line from the Power distribution Board to the Low Voltage
Supply Pillar" answer Yes! Actual Question on notice, Did Gosford Council ask ratepayers to be responsible for
the Electricity Supply Line Answer NO! Responsibility was not used in the written approach by gosford council
on behalf of Energy Australia, common sense allows that responsibility comes with ownership. And that ownership can be enforced
under the regulation of the Electricity Supply Act 95.
this has happened is simple the State Government has always been the insurer of last resort on behalf of the people of NSW
with regards the Electricity Supply Grid, but to priviatezise there was no chance that potential owners would consider being
responsible for that insurance liability so the State Government found that property owners could be responsible for
the most expensive part of the liability by becoming owners out to the "Point of Supply", so the regulation happened
with the involvement of Liberal Coalition and Labor, hence the wall of silence.
just sad that I do not have the skills to lobby this to the point of prominence that it deserves, consider the debacle of
motor vehicle insurance. Then ask why a responsible Government would consider creating a situation where every property
owner ( Millions of them always increasing) is responsible for some piece of the Electricity Supply Grid not in their
direct control outside their private holdings. A JOKE!
involvement in accommodating criminal activity, Harry Woods and Andrew Refshauge are entitled to their Ministerial Prerogative.
That's the Law as is John Brogden and Chris Hartcher but why when there parties are running a high profile Law
and Order Campaign presenting themselves as supporters of law and order, would they all be comfortable with allegations "MPs Ignore
Crime" that involves employees of the Gosford Council?
Published threats to sue me
for defamation implies that I am lying when I say Gosford Council is Corrupt. I have copies of Falsified Instruments signed
by Grant Killen for Gosford Council and relied on to mislead the afore mentioned Ministers. Consider that all councillors
and management have been approached in writing with no proper response, this same council has seen Councillors and friends
of Council feather bedded when they illegally used the public property for commercial benefit and continued after the matter
was drawn to councils attention this relates to non compliance with Sections 626 and 627 of the Local Government Act 93
Illegal nuisance use and Non Complying use. Management and ranger supervisor Rod Giffen have been asked was there a
written directive for Rangers to ignore issues of law enforce in selective instances. Matters that had to be brought
to the attention of the Pecuniary Interest Tribunal and the Department of Local Government both of whom inform me that on these
matters they cannot advise me. This is a Council that involved itself in improper use of community resources pursuing all
issues of defamation, Council as a corporate entity has no avenue to prosecute defamation. Supreme Court Ringland v
Ballina Shire 1993
far as I am concerned Matters of Corruption are public business and the conflict and pecuniary interest issues that arise
when Ten Million Dollar insurance requirements and rent are ignored for almost four years through council reviews is
certainly the concern of responsible ratepayers across this State!
