By law; Council must engage the community in the decision making process. Willoughby City Council Community Participation Plan was published June 2020, and we have seen a plethora of “have your say” complying with this documentation. But still the community voice is not heard in Council.
Community “engagement” has become an exercise of statutory compliance and not a genuine consultation process with the objective of addressing community concerns and aspirations.
Consequently there is a lack of confidence in our community that our voice is being heard in Council’s decision making process.
I’m here to say, your voice can and has made the difference. It was your voice that has stopped the demolition of the historic Artarmon Clubhouse. It is your voice that saves the natural environment of Flat Rock Gully.
It is your voice that WILL provide future generations with a connection to their past and with pride, make our community truly a place we call home.
I will be the voice for our people’s past and for our present environment, as your councillor for the future of Naremburn ward.
