Well done to the residents of Breeze apartments in Harvey Street. For some months they have been negotiating with Telstra to extend its HFC network to Prince Henry, and are finally seeing some progress.
The CA’s letter dated 10 August 2016 was emailed or mailed to all strata schemes, neighbourhood associations and individual lot owners explaining Telstra’s intentions.
A letter dated 11 August 2016 from the CA’s lawyer was also emailed or mailed to all strata schemes, neighbourhood associations and individual lot owners. The lawyer’s letter outlined some of Telstra’s requirements and clearly stated that the responsibility for accepting Telstra’s proposal lies squarely with strata schemes, neighbourhood associations and individual lot owners.
It’s important to note that:
- the CA is not able to become involved in private arrangements made between individual Prince Henry lot owners or subsidiary bodies and Telstra
- any works affecting the external appearance of building must comply with the Prince Henry Design Guidelines, and appropriate written approvals received before works commence
- any work carried out by Telstra to pavements must be approved by Randwick City Council and the approved concrete mix used to reinstate those pavements on completion of the works
Telstra has advised that as at mid-September:
- Telstra is focusing on signing up MDUs in the short term
- Negotiations have been finalised with two apartment blocks
- Six apartment blocks are at design | negotiation stage
- Individual houses and town houses may be considered down the track should the numbers stack up in accordance with Telstra’s business plan
