CORONAVIRUS SAFETY FOR LOCALS
We need cleaning of high touch points in our local shopping centres so we can all feel at ease going into the shops for a coffee, takeaway or to do our weekly shop. All levels of government must do their part to stop the spread of this virus.
CORONAVIRUS BUSINESS SUPPORT PACKAGE
I have a plan for local small business. I will support our traders through rates waivers, lower rates and grants to assist businesses to move online. A new Nillumbik Online Marketplace will be set up to allow businesses and locals to sell their products and for locals to source local products and groceries.
I will fight to keep rates low. Excellent financial management is essential if we are to deliver the services we need.
All residents, young and old, need to be able to get around safely as they head to the local cafe for a coffee or out for some fresh air with the kids. Too often the only choice in some areas is to go on the road.
I will, if elected, modernise our streets so that residents of all ages can enjoy our area safely. This isn’t a one size fits all approach so I want to hear from you about your needs for footpaths in the streets you walk on.
SEAL ROADS IN WINGROVE WARD
Our local streets should be able to be enjoyed by local residents walking and should be easy and safe to drive on. If elected I will fight to ensure that every road is sealed in Wingrove Ward. This should be funded out of our current rate base. You pay your hard earned and I will fight for us to maintain low rates but improve services by focusing on the basics.
I live on a property with a bushfire overlay. I’m extremely conscious of the devastating impact a bushfire could have on our area. I will ensure that Council are appropriately managing Council land and that we adopt policies which allow for residents to help us mitigate fire even in the hot summer periods.
COMMON SENSE PLANNING AND HOUSING POLICY
My view is simple. Development that the state government is pushing on us should go in the inner city first. I support sensible redevelopment of old non-heritage homes into new family homes but we don’t need high-rise living in Eltham.
