Previous achievements on Moonee Valley Council

From 2007-2010, I served as the Councillor for Flemington, Kensington (now City of Melbourne), Ascot Vale and Moonee Ponds.

During this time, I advocated tirelessly for: Action on climate change

  • funding for annual targets to lower Council's emissions

  • support for residents to install solar panels and water tanks

  • funding for bike paths to enable children and commuters to ride safely

Environmental protection

  • funding for parks and open space

  • strategies for healthy water ways 

  • sustainable water plans for open spaces and street trees

Community inclusion

  • publications in multiple languages for our large population without English as a first language

  • the inclusion of local artwork in street enhancement projects

  • a strategy for sporting facilities for netball

  • funding for childcare and support for kindergartens

  • support for aged, disability and diversity services


  • heritage protection for suburbs with significant neighbourhood character and inadequate protection

  • consultation with residents on issues affecting them

  • appropriate venue management to restore neighbourhood amenity in Moonee Ponds Mt Road precinct

I fought:

  • over-development at Lombards and 1 Ascot Vale Rd

  • against the destruction of parkland by the proposed East West Link

  • over-development of small blocks resulting in loss of amenity for neighbours

  • poor governance 

  • inequity in spending 

  • the sale of parkland.

In 2007, I was one of the only Councillors to vote against the sale of a portion of Debneys Park that eventually paved the way for the construction of the Lombards tower.

I value investment in environmental and community services that make our suburbs even more vibrant, healthy, inclusive and sustainable.
