I have represented the Ward in 1995-7 and again from 2006 to the present time. I find being your representative on Council to be very rewarding. Please find out more about current items that I think are of interest as well as my achievements for the Ward and plans for the future.

November Update; 2012
October has been busy, more with the Grade Separation than anything else. However, I have managed to get roads repaired (Eglington Ave), footpaths repaired (Frederick St), and stormwater outlets realigned and finished correctly (Fairfax Ave).
The Dunrobin St trees consultationcloses 3rd November. There are 3 options; to keep the trees, to remove the trees in stages or to remove all the trees at once.
Suitable sites for artistic beautification; I need some help in identifying suitable sites for art works (similar to Sugar and Spice). Please send some photos of blank spaces that need some brightening up or spaces often graffited (these nuisances respect the art of others and rarely tag over them ). Suggestions are the Vieo store on East Ave and the building on the curve of Goodon Rd.
Further land acquisitions. It is my understanding that DPTI are purchasing a strip of land (40square metres on Dryden Rd); there are no others planned at this stage.
Street sweeping trial to be reviewed. If you have been part of this please respond when requested by staff. I hope this can soon be extended to all residents
Aroha Tce; Risk management. I’m still waiting to see the report into the safety of the trees and a description of Water Sensitive Urban design that is keeping the trees well watered.
Tree health in Millswood Cres; Many of the trees between Millswood park and Ormond Ave appear to be in poor health and/or dying. Staff will help to make the decision if they need a good prune or replacement of a similar species.
669 South Rd will be discussed at he next Council meeting, this is the car park next to Black Forest Primary School. Some of the land has been annexed by the business next door.
