POTS are on the boil for Richmond’s Norman Court residents who have to leave their homes by November 20.

As reported in the Gazette of August 30, 12 residents have to find new homes as their complex is due to be bulldozed by Christmas to make way for a new high-needs care and palliative care wing for the adjacent nursing home. 

Resident Trevor Vigar said a team of Wentworth Community Housing officers was coming to the complex on Wednesday, September 13 with the aim of interviewing the residents about their needs and circumstances. 

Mr Vigar said he had also rung complex owner Richmond Club’s CEO Kimberley Talbot to ask if she could provide skips while they cleaned out their units. Two were delivered last week, and taken away full on Monday. 

“We also asked about our washing machines and dryers which the club owns,” he said. “Kimberley said if we wanted them, we could have them.”

Hawkesbury Council’s Peter Conroy said he had met with a community housing provider to advocate for the residents and will meet the provider again in late September when all the residents’ needs were known.
