How will you improve the Banyule area?

Welcome to the Banyule area local campaigns hub — where everyday people can start and find campaigns on local issues they care about.

From public libraries to kerbside recycling and affordable childcare, we’re surrounded by the legacies of everyday people who started campaigns to make their local area a safer, fairer and more thriving place.

Do you have an idea for what would make the Banyule area a better place? Maybe there’s a local river that’s threatened by pollution or a domestic violence shelter at risk of closure. Perhaps you’d like the speed limit lowered around your kids’ school.

Click the “Start a campaign” button to start your petition now, write a first draft (it won’t be visible until you share it), or just check out what’s involved. Otherwise scroll down to sign and support campaigns started by your neighbours.

    Beautify Banyule parks in Greensborough
    Our public parks are important places , but they are sad , empty spaces most if the time . The main park for community use is the RSL Memorial park and the playground and gardens next to it are lovely . The rest of the park has been poorly maintained and cared for . It should be nurtured and made into a beautiful communal space and meeting place complimenting the neighbouring community facilities . Same with parks throughout Greensborough where lawns are watered on the ovals and rubbish is thrown around and into the river near the tennis courts . We need seating and shelter throughout the parks in the main precinct and ideally benches everywhere . All busstops should have shelters and seating . Greensborough has a business and retail precinct that would benefit immensely with beautiful parks like in Heidelberg . People need safe outdoor spaces where they can rest , meet up with people , eat and take their kids and dogs safely. That means CTV cameras , lighting and pet friendly dispensers for poo bags and water like in Altona beach and other parks and sculptures , water features and a water fountain to discourage people using single use plastic water bottles and lots of bins for Kentucky and Macdonalds etc
