• Fairfield Heights public school continued participation in P.S.S.A sport
    The N.S.W Primary School Sports Association (P.S.S.A) sporting competition provides opportunity for all students, no matter their family's financial situation to be involved in team sports. For a lot of our families, P.S.S.A sport may be the only team sports children are able to participate in due to the costs associated with outside club sports. Our school is located in a low socio economic area with a high non English speaking back ground and refugee community. P.S.S.A allows everyone to be involved. Our local government area was the focal point of the N.S.W 2021 Sydney lockdown and our children need to return to our normal school routines wherever possible. We as a community value the many benefits gained through sport including those to health and personal development, working as part of a team, sportsmanship and fun and we want our children to continue to enjoy P.S.S.A sport.

  • Listen to the Kids - Build a Mountain Bike Track to Support our Physical and Mental Health
    Canada Bay Council should build us a track for our Mountain Bikes, this is so kids stay active, fit and social while in lockdown and out of lockdown, in a way that we enjoy on our bikes and in the sun. We have nowhere to go to ride our bikes, riding our bikes is the only thing that keeps us from staying inside all day on our devices.

  • Redevelopment of the Bribie Island Aquatic Leisure Centre
    According to the WHO guidelines, 40% of Australians are classified as inactive. The costs to the health care system of inactivity related disease and illness is enormous. The burden of disease for Bribie Island and surrounding communities is already relatively high compared to neighbouring jurisdictions due an older population and people from low socio-economic backgrounds. Public pools can help reduce morbidity and mortality. Learn to swim, aquatherapy, aquarobics, lap or squad swimming, school carnivals and specifically tailored activities not only improves individual well-being, their provision can also contribute positively to the broader community socially and economically.

  • Ventilation for NSW schools
    We want the kids back to school. We want our schools to be safe. My kids contracted COVID-19 at school despite current COVID Safe measures. Ventilation in schools has been highlighted as a key factor in mitigating the risk of airborne transmission. Vaccination is only part of the solution. Expert groups such as OzSAGE have expressed concern over the current Department of Education ventilation strategies (mainly opening windows). Our kids and teachers deserve the same attention to air quality as our Politicians.

  • Samford Road Wildlife Tree Bridges
    This is important because many wildlife lives are killed with intent and some not. Adding these bridges for marsupials will lower the death toll for all species along this road and reduce the decline of our wildlife populations

  • Convert Miranda park into a dog park
    There’s no time like now where the community’s health, safety and wellbeing is necessary to prioritise and should be at the forefront of our community leaders with respects to decision making that impacts the wider community. - The park is conveniently located for locals and therefore many dog owners - The park is significant in size and there is ample space to accommodate several dogs and their owners safely (for example ensuring social distancing and enabling owners to train their dogs) - There are no paths, children’s play equipment or seating area that would otherwise suggest an alternate purpose for this park - There are many other safe, child friendly parks scattered throughout the neighbourhood, should this be the reasoning as to why this request should not be supported

  • Save Butler Reserve. Byron Bay
    This green space is home to many species of birds and animals. During the recent closure of the reserve these birds and animals were often found distressed by the encroachment on their homeland. Butler Reserve has been used by all locals. Elderly people who were born in nearby homes and have lived there all their lives use it to walk safely often with their pets.. Until the council prevented access to the Reserve youngsters regularly played cricket , football and other games as it is the only safe space large enough for this use in the area. Thousands of people benefit ( local vendors, shop keepers ,musicians and tourists) from both the Monthly and weekly Farmer's markets. Butler Reserve provides a tranquil space during the very busy tourist times. Again before access was closed artists could be found painting or musicians playing and writing in solace. Experimental attempts at providing a carpark on this reserve have all failed. During the past it has been opened as a free carpark which led to overuse by van dwellers who while they attempted to treat the land with respect had no facilities provided by Council. Therefore rubbish and human waste became a problem. The Reserve was then transformed into a paid carpark and was immediately underused and remained so until this scheme was also abandoned by Council. It is clear that the carpark idea does not work and should not be implemented. Greenspace is a form of social capital that is evidently highly valued by all councils in other LGA's eg. Gold Coast. In fact it is also apparent that these public green spaces are highly valued in all country towns even those where available water is an issue. They reflect the underlying values of a town and their leaders. Increasing they are being seen a highly important for the wholistic health of people, mental, physical and spiritual. Please accept this as a sincere and worthwhile platform for abandoning any plans for a carpark on Butler Reserve.

  • Save Austin Butler Way Reserve .Woy Woy
    This is a much loved reserve, housing ancient Melaleuca trees which feed and house many creatures, including threatened species such as bats, mardys, parrots and even rare frogs have been sited in this area. This area must be saved. These trees create a much loved sanctuary for locals and visitors. Woy Woy has by far more car parks than can be deemed necessary. These trees are ancient Australian natives. in a time of global warming, pandemics, lockdowns, and hardship, such beautiful environmentally sensitive pockets of land like this should not only be saved but nurtured and treasured by local councils, as it is by many locals. Loads of visitors who come to visit the brilliant sporting facilities that have been recently upgraded, which are adequately catered for not only parking wise, stay to see this safe haven for many creatures. The pelicans at the waterfront are a delightful attraction not only loved by locals but by many visitors and tourists. This is a time when we should be planting more trees, not tearing them down.
