Golden Goose Sneakers Sale for camping

  • Homeless eviction by Glenorchy council lashed


    A group of homeless people in Hobart's northern suburbs have been forced off their campsite, with the Friday afternoon crackdown attacked by the man who has now taken the people in at the facility he manages.


    Eight people set up camp at the former Berriedale Caravan Park two months ago, with Glenorchy City Council warning on Tuesday they would need to find another place to stay.


    This afternoon, the four remaining campers at the Berriedale site were visited by Glenorchy City Council officers, accompanied by two police officers, issued with an eviction notice and told they must vacate "immediately".


    Tamika Clark said she felt intimidated by the police and council officers who attended.


    "I felt scared. I feel really upset inside because I am homeless and I don't have anywhere to go," she said.


    "It's cruel they shouldn't treat people like that."


    A Glenorchy City Council letter, addressed to "the occupiers", said the council "has not granted you approval to use or occupy the property for camping purposes".


    It said the property was not suitable Golden Goose Sneakers Sale for camping due to its lack of "toilets, showers, water, electricity and lighting".


    "Council directs you to immediately vacate the property and remove all your belongings and make good any damage you may have caused," it read.


    Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston said the council was concerned for the campers' safety.


    "It's not a safe place to be. The former caravan park site does not have any amenities," she said.


    "It's our understanding those campers have found alternative accommodation and will be moving on today.


    "We have been working very closely with them and also making sure they're in touch with housing service providers."


    The letter, signed by Glenorchy City Council general manager Tony McMullen, said the council could offer no further help.
