• Go FOGO Wanneroo!
    FOGO is the WA State Government and Waste Authority’s preferred best practice for waste management and the only system to meet State diversion from landfill targets of 65% by 2020 and material recovery targets of 70% by 2025. In 2019 the City of Wanneroo (COW) announced that households would be receiving a FOGO bin in 2021. However, COW was unable to find a waste management business willing or able to process the huge amount of organic waste the City produces. So FOGO is currently a No-go for Wanneroo despite the obvious environmental urgency for its implementation. COW must, therefore, take responsibility for establishing and operating a FOGO recycling plant itself. WA Councils that have adopted FOGO include Albany, Bayswater, Belmont, Bunbury, Fremantle, Kalamunda, Melville and Vincent and the towns of Bassendean and East Fremantle. The benefits of FOGO waste management to the community would be: * drastically reduce the amount of organic waste contaminating Tamala Park landfill site which is rapidly reaching capacity * reduce pollution and unpleasant odour caused by the harmful methane gas released by unprocessed organic matter that CONTRIBUTES TO GLOBAL WARMING * a reduction in processing and disposal costs (no additional cost to residents) By applying FOGO compost to debilitated soil, it will: * SAVE WATER by Improving soil water retention * counteract the widespread degradation of soil caused by extensive land clearing of the far northern suburbs for new residential and commercial developments * invigorate and sustain new plant growth, thereby increasing the survival rate of newly planted trees reaching maturity (it is estimated only 1 in 10 trees planted by Perth local councils reach maturity) * reduce the use of chemical fertilisers and weed killers * assist in the rehabilitation of landfill and open cut mine sites (eg, limestone quarries and sand quarries) and for use the City’s public open spaces, gardens, farms, and for use in landscaping new developments, roundabouts, roadsides, and the Mitchell Freeway extension Other potential benefits: * provide employment opportunities for disadvantaged jobseekers (eg, people with disabilities) * provide opportunities to develop partnerships with businesses and corporations wishing to enhance their corporate citizen profiles.

  • Power for Broome
    The recent Horizon presentation offered nothing to our general population besides tea and scones at the yet to be completed customer experience centre. We need environmentally friendly power generation to reduce our carbon footprint for the future of our children, our Nation and our World. Let’s activate the local, State and Federal Government bodies to encourage Horizon Power to get the job done.

  • Studley Park Community Garden
    Sustainable communities and food sourcing is becoming increasingly important. So, too, is optimising the use of our community land. The small piece of land of interest is rarely used and would be a wonderful way for the community to connect and learn together about urban farming. Connecting us all to our food supply and nature brings harmony, togetherness and fabulous food!

  • Ban Plastic-turf in public parks
    Plastic-turf kills the biota beneath & leeches toxins into the soil, while also increasing the heat island effect for the surrounding community. We must phase out the use of plastics that pollute. The world is choking on our plastics. Wrapping the land in a plastic coating is nether sustainable nor in line with the spirit and principles of Moreland Council’s own “Plastic Wise Moreland”.

  • Give us a Pedestrian Footpath between Olinda and Sassafras
    Pedestrian traffic by residents and tourists between Olinda and Sassafras is currently challenging and unsafe, and will deteriorate further during the winter months. The growing tourism in the Dandenong Ranges would benefit from proper and safe access between these two popular destinations.

  • No Crows HQ on the Adelaide Park Lands
    The Park Lands are a critical part of the heritage and history of Adelaide. They should be retained for unrestricted public access as intended in the original Colonel Light’s visionary plan They must not be developed for any exclusive commercial purposes such as currently being contemplated by the Adelaide Football Club.

  • Fix Spa Bath at Reservoir pool!
    Paying members should be able to enjoy the full use of the spa and have it operate the way it's supposed to, rather than just a hot tub with a few bubbles. It's important that our public facilities are kept in good condition so that we can make sure everybody, regardless of how much money you have, can enjoy leisure activities.

  • Re-open Ralph Street Library
    More computers could be introduced and a larger section could be used as a community centre. More space means more safety as the social distancing is now the new normal.

  • Winmalee needs microgrids!
    It would make people's lives so much easier and not just pleasant but provide this essential service regardless of whether a tree has taken out power lines somewhere else locally or if there is a bushfire and power is lost. While it would cost money it is really a small price to pay for the additional security it would provide. Why Matt Kean? Because he is the person who can make it happen. As the Minister for the Environment in NSW he has the power to make this happen. The council cannot do it!

  • Make it safe for us to cross the Bass Highway in Kilcunda
    This is important as it is dangerous to cross the road and its only a matter of time until someone is killed or seriously injured. Safety improvements to this section of Bass Highway have been a high priority for the community, which is separated by this busy highway, for decades. Our school children have to cross the road each day for the bus drop off and pick up, our recreation area is over the highway for most residents while the General Store, Post Office and Pub are over the highway for the other residents so we can't avoid crossing it. The Planning and Community Consultation required for the project have already been done, the Environmental Assessment, Cultural Heritage Management Plan, Additional Survey works, Safety Audit and further refinement of the design, within existing scope, have all been progressed. We now just need you to fund it so it can be built and our community can be safer and more connected. Details of the project can be found through the link below https://regionalroads.vic.gov.au/map/eastern-improvements/bass-highway-kilcunda-pedestrian-and-intersection-safety-improvements

  • Extension of footpath along Parsons Road, Forest Glen to improve local connectivity
    Parsons Road is a busy cut-through road for motorists accessing the Bruce Highway, Kunda Park, Forest Glen Village, Sunshine Coast Grammar School and local area. It is currently not safe to walk or ride along this section of road. The developer of Forest Pines Estate was conditioned to build a section of footpath along Parsons Road but it does not connect anywhere. The Council is allowing more residential, retirement and retail development in the local Forest Glen and Mons area such as Nature's Edge, Forest Pines estate, Azure, Greenwood, Halcyon and the future Forest Glen Village (IGA) precinct but none of these developments have little or no active transport connectivity. Council want people to use more active transport options but they are not providing the infrastructure. Extending the footpath on Parsons Road would connect up most of these developments and given people the option to walk or ride safely off an extremely busy road.
