• No Beach Club on Bondi Beach
    The proposed Amalfi Beach Club would privatise part of Bondi Beach and significantly damage the character of the beach. Bondi Beach is loved by locals and visitors to the area. We can't allow the construction of a private club on this most cherished public land.

  • Flood Prevention in the Valley
    A lot of energy has already been put into raising the height of the wall to “save the people” against "selfish" conservationists who want to save green space and indigenous heritage. The opposite seems closer to the truth with more development of lifeless hotboxes. The NSW Government will get more for their investment by financially supporting councils throughout the catchment to contain all runoff into wetlands, parks and ponds. This offers cooling amenity throughout western Sydney. Better for liveability for people, supposedly politician’s primary concern. Penrith should never be the hottest place on earth (https://www.sbs.com.au/news/sydney-s-penrith-the-hottest-place-on-earth-amid-devastating-bushfires). Keeping water in bodies of water like creek-lines, wetlands and ponds prevents bush fires by keeping the land cool, hydrated and ready to receive rain which it can hold rather than release into flood. Flood and drought are two sides of same operation. Hold onto rainwater (stops flood) and drought is prevented equally.

  • Kyogle to Rainbow Ridge School Bus
    All children and their families should have access in our local area of Kyogle to a school bus to get to school. Rainbow Ridge Steiner School has been an education option for parents to send their children in Kyogle Council region for over 20 years and no school bus has ever been organised for their families from Kyogle township to the school. Over 20 children would use this bus service every week but still after years of petitioning by parents and the school to NSW transport, Kyogle Council and local MP's, no bus service to Kyogle. Our families are valuable in our local area and we should support our local schools in the Kyogle region.

  • Safety for children and dogs in Ardrie Park
    Children and fur babies safety is extremely important. Excited children and puppies frequently dash towards the rear exit of Ardrie Park. Some run onto the road before parents can catch up. Cars often travel at speed along this road. Neighbours have witnessed scary near misses. A safety barrier and gate to prevent a likely traumatic accident is important.

  • Save the NDIS
    The National Disability Services Scheme has changed many peoples lives including that of my daughter who is 12 and has Down syndrome. The planning role needs to sit with the National Disability Insurance Agency in order to preserve transparency of services. Little is being said about the partner LAC’s but recently my daughters plan moved from NDIA to APM. I was not informed and I have no choice it seems. This is not transparent and these partners look and act like the NDIA but they are contacted but the govt. My details were sent to them without my consent. Here is some of what has been written in the past. I just want to have the plan sit with the NDIA and not a contractor and that seems to have been removed from our control. Not choice and not control and not what the NDIS is about. Professionals who know a person with a disability need to provide input into support needs not an assessor who has never met the person and is contracted by the government to meet KPI's.

  • Bringing the railways back to Wonthaggi
    The town, Wonthaggi and surrounding towns are all growing. The demographics include diverse age groups, not just the elderly. We have young families and people between ages 21 and 55 living in Wonthaggi who still commute between Wonthaggi and Melbourne. Currently, there is a bus service to and from Melbourne city, but the bus service is not viable in the long term, due to road congestion, longer travel times due to traffic, and limited bus services. A train will resolve these issues and cut down travel time by at least half hour. This is important as more people are moving to the country for a better life and due to housing price rises. International leaders are saying we need to reduce emissions, and a train can and will be part of resolving this issue, taking more cars off the road. Many people are now setting up home in Wonthaggi and still have to drive to the city as the buses are not always reliable, nor safe in covid times being buses are confined spaces - trains are not so confined. It does not make sense that the trains were cut in 1993 by Kennett who had shortsighted ideas. Had the train lines been kept in use, this would have benefitted the economy, bringing in money from everyday use. Governments peddal the excuse that it is too expensive to return railways to Wonthaggi. This is not true and no one should buy that excuse at all. The government has more than enough money and the railways being in use will pay for itself and keep paying into the economy. This NEEDS to be done now. We are not going to wait any longer. We would like to see Wonthaggi as a successful burgeoning town just like Traralgon is. For the last decade, locals in Wonthaggi and surrounds including Leongatha have fought and fought for this railway line to be brought back into use and it has been ignored for too long. No more. Just fund it and bring it back!

  • Wodonga Council - Take Action on Climate Change!
    The federal government is letting us down on this issue. We need all local governments to take a leadership role if we are to avoid the worst outcomes of climate change and have a liveable future for our children. Nearby Indigo Shire has declared a Climate Emergency. Alpine Shire has committed to net-zero by 2023. Tell our councillors we want them to take this issue seriously and keep our city liveable, by taking urgent action to reach net-zero emissions as soon as possible.

  • Save Cyril Jackson Oval
    Cyril Jackson Oval is important to many locals for dog walking, picnics and playing away from the high-use soccer fields on Ashfield Reserve. It provides habitat for numerous birds, including at-risk species like white-tailed and red-tailed black cockatoos. Unless we act before next summer, the grass will die, and the trees and local birdlife will suffer.
