As your Councillor I will:
REGAIN control of development in Palm Beach
PROTECT and value the unique communities of
Burleigh, Palm Beach, Tallebudgera and Elanora
TACKLE our traffic congestion and fight for heavy
rail to be extended to the airport
DELIVER safer and better bikeways to make our
area the city leader in active transport solutions
PALM BEACH DEVELOPMENT
Development is being imposed on Palm Beach in a rapid and unplanned manner without regard for local identity or adequate infrastructure and provision for traffic and parking.
I will end the uncertainty starting with an audit of all developments in the Palm Beach pipeline.
I will bring control of our suburb’s renewal back to the community.
VALUE THE ECONOMIC CONTRIBUTION OF OUR UNIQUE VILLAGES
Burleigh, Palm Beach, Tallebudgera and Elanora deliver economic value to the Gold Coast by being different.
I will fight to stop the spread of a homogenous Gold Coast and elevate the distinct character and value of sections of our coastal strip.
I will progress the economic cases for maintaining our diversity.
Our traffic congestion will continue to get worse with greater development and density.
I will take on our traffic congestion by:
Fighting for better public transport prioritising heavy rail to the airport to ease commuter traffic
Delivering better and safer bike paths, crossings, lighting and facilities to make our area the safest and most accessible on the Gold Coast for cyclists and pedestrians
I support the Pacific Motorway (M1) to Varsity Lakes (Exit 85) to Tugun (Exit 95) upgrade
I support continuing the Free Seniors Bus Travel Initiative
I support continuing the City of Gold Coast Council Cab service to The Pines on Thursdays and examining expansion of the scheme.
