Dubbo finished just $2 million behind its regional counterpart, consenting to projects with a combined value of $140.62 million for the 12 months to the end of June.

The result was far closer than earlier this year and showed Dubbo had almost closed the gap between the two in the last four months of the financial year.

Orange City Council figures showed $109.7 million had been approved from July last year to February, $20.5 million more than at Dubbo.

At the end of the 12 months to June 30 approved development totalled about $142.6 million in the Orange local government area, Orange council corporate and community relations manager Nick Redmond said.

Of the pair, Dubbo was the council with the higher number of development applications (DA) approved.

The number of all DAs including complying development certificates approved at Dubbo totalled 694, Dubbo council environmental services director Melissa Watkins said in a report to the works and services committee.

Mr Redmond said the number of all DAs including complying development certificates approved at Orange was about 645.

The total DAs approved at Dubbo in 2013-2014 was higher than the previous financial year, when 616 DAs were approved.

In July the council highlighted growth in a particular type of development for the previous 12 months.

It reported housingapprovalsat Dubbo for the past financial year had risen with the total number ofdwellingsapprovedhigher in 2013-2014 than the past two years.

A total of 295 newdwellingswereapprovedin 2013-2014 compared to 262 newdwellingsin 2012-2013 and 200dwellingsin 2011-2012.

Dubbo mayor Mathew Dickerson said then the 295 newdwellingsapprovedin the past year were valued at $67 million, which was a rise of 11.8 per cent compared to $59.9 million in 2012-2013.

“The growth inapprovalsof all types ofdwellingsshows that both residents and thedevelopmentindustry are investing in the growth of the city which overall is very positive,” he said then.

“The economic impact of a rise in housingapprovalsis felt throughout the economy in construction, household consumption expenditure and jobs growth.”

Shoemark saves the day for ’75

HE might be restricted to kicking with his left foot due to a hip injury, but there was nothing wrong with Henry Shoemark’s hands on Sunday as the Bathurst ’75 goalkeeper came up with a crucial block and helped his side to a 4-1 penalty shoot-out win over CSU Stags.

In a tense Bathurst District Football Association men’s first grade major semi-final, the scores were locked at 1-all after regulation time and an additional 20 minutes failed to produced a winner.

It meant the first spot in this year’s grand final would be decided by penalties.

While ’75s penalty takers kept their composure in the pressure situation, only one of CSU’s attempts found the mark. One was sent wide while Shoemark blocked the other.

“Henry is a pretty big bloke and it was low and down to his right,” Bathurst ’75s Ricky Guihot said.

“But he got down to it really well, given he’s like seven foot, he did really well to get down that low. It was a great save.

“Henry busted himself at the start of the season and missed a lot of games. We had Brad Black fill in but then he hurt himself, so Henry is back in goals for us now. He has still got a busted hip though, so he has to kick left-footed, but he goes alright.”

While CSU went into the major semi-final at Proctor Park as favourites, given they had wrapped up the minor premiership before the final round of the regular season, ’75s side boasted a host of State League experience.

It was ’75 who opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the first half after Jarryd Boustani was fouled just inside the box.

Justin Boustani’s first attempt was blocked by the CSU goalkeeper, but he followed in and put the deflection away.

The equaliser came 15 minutes from full-time after a corner kick scramble in the goal mouth and lucky rebound off the back of Ben Ballantine.

“It was sort of fairly scrappy in the box and Chris New-Tolley’s shot hit the back of another one of his players and ricocheted into the goal,” Guihot said.

“Henry actually went the right way, he had his hands up and everything, but when it hit the guy’s back it just changed direction too quick on him.”

That goal saw the game go into extra-time, and though Stags dominated the first 10 minutes before ’75 lifted and looked more threatening in the second period, no more goals were found.

It saw the need for penalties, Guihot saying it was more a case of ’75s relaxed attitude than their State League experience which saw them become the first side into the grand final.

“We are a side that don’t train, we haven’t trained all season, and the boys just go out there and have a bit of fun and that makes a difference, we don’t blow up at each other,” he said.

“Even when we got to 1-all we were really relaxed and when it came to penalties we were joking around – we didn’t even watched some of them – while they were all arm-in-arm. We didn’t really feel too much pressure.”

The Stags will take solace in the fact they took the semi-final so far without starting defenders Tom Dewey and Alex Ward, as well as reserve striker Andrew Slater. The efforts of attacking midfielder Josh Brown and Dan Clements against ’75 were also impressive.

The minor semi-final between Lithgow and City Colts was marred by injury, the Lithgow goalkeeper breaking his leg attempting to make a save after 12 minutes.

By that point in time Lithgow led 1-0, having scored five minutes into the sudden death match at Proctor Park.

After a long delay and a switch of fields to utilise the lights on the main field as darkness fell, Lithgow finished as 2-0 victors.

They will now face CSU Stags in this Sunday’s preliminary final.

Mrs Skinner last week officially opened the Ngara Education Centre which provides training and orientation for health professionals including nurses.

The simulation centre is equipped with a four-bed ward room, simulation mannequins, linen trolley, utility rooms, as well as lecture and video conference rooms.

Manager Rebecca Leon said the centre was the only one of its kind in south-west Sydney.

“I think it is a huge step forward,” she said. “We have worked hard to make the centre high-tech. It has Wi-Fi and students will get laptops to work on.”

Ms Leon said the centre allowed students to learn to do day-to-day tasks such as feeding, lifting and bathing patients, as well as the more extreme tasks like resuscitation.

The centre was funded by the state and federal governments and cost $6.2 million.

It caters for 30 to 40 students each day.

So far, more than 5000 students have made use of the centre since it began operating in February.

The name Ngara is an Aboriginal word of Darug origin which means “listen, hear, think”.
