• 'NO' to 11 room boarding house at 213 Bunnerong Rd Maroubra 2035
    1) DA for a 3 storey boarding house containing 11 boarding rooms - potential accomodation for 22 people. 2) PARKING: only 3 parking spots are included. This is not adequate for the number of proposed residents. Parking is already at capacity on Eastmore Place. 3) CONGESTION: additional cars entering and exiting Eastmore Place is a safety issue, and additional vehicle movements pose a risk. Eastmore Place is still technically a laneway, and access is very narrow and does not allow for two cars to enter and exit without difficulty. 4) SECURITY & COMMUNITY SAFETY: Eastmore Place is a family oriented suburban area, with 20+ young children residing on the immediate block. The proposed boarding house has the potential to erode the existing character of the zone through cumulative social effects.

  • Don't give billions to Adani
    Global mining company, Adani, have been unsuccessfully trying to secure finance for the Carmichael coal mine for years. Now, the Turnbull Government is considering making the Australian public foot the billion dollar bill for Adani's rail line, which will transport coal from the mine to the port. This is despite his promise during the 2016 federal election that there would be no public funding of Adani's mine. This billion dollar loan is risky, reckless, and deeply unpopular. Even members of the Prime Minister's own party oppose it, with Coalition backbenchers Bert Van Manen and Sarah Henderson speaking out. This is public money, that would be better spent anywhere else! Funding our local hospitals and schools would be a good start. Or how about investing in renewable energy projects instead?

  • Stop single-use takeaway containers in Newtown!
    Waste is a huge problem, both in Australia but also globally. In Australia, we throw away enough packaging waste to fill the Melbourne Cricket Ground nine times over. A large part of this waste comes from single use takeaway containers. While some are recyclable, many are not – and whether or not people actually do recycle those containers is whole other story. There’s been a huge uptake by cafes and individuals of reusable take-away coffee cups, which is fantastic. But single-use take-away containers are just as much an issue, and reusable containers are a comparable solution to Keep Cups. Packaging waste ends up in our oceans and rivers, harming our marine and wildlife. It's also a climate change issue, as it ends up in landfill emitting greenhouse gases which are cooking our climate. Reusable containers are a logical, simple solution to reducing waste to take care of our wildlife and our planet.

  • ERM - stop faking the RET
    This strategy of ERM is completely contrary to ERM's stated vision of "'zero harm and zero loss' where care of people and the planet are put first..." Surely ERM understands that the mitigation of climate change is important to reduce extreme weather events, droughts, ocean acidification and sea level rise. Surely ERM understands that the burning of fossil fuels also has more immediate deleterious health effects, particularly upon people's respiratory systems.
