Greening Adelaide

If elected, I will work tirelessly to ensure that Adelaide reaches its potential as one of the world’s leading sustainable cities.

During my time on Council (2014-2015) I secured a record $1 million dollars for a Greener Streets Program and as a result more trees have been planted in Adelaide over the last 4 years than ever before. But more needs to be done.

You can read more about the Greener Streets program here:

If elected I will campaign to:

  • Protect our Park Lands, plant more trees and boost green roofs and walls
  • Finally finish Frome Street and extend the seperated bike path throughout the CBD
  • Increase access to solar energy by encouraging solar farming on apartment roof tops so that both owner-occupiers and renters are able to switch to renewables
  • Make Adelaide a leader in climate change adaptation – encouraging business investment and boosting jobs
  • Provide incentives to city businesses to phase out single use plastics (note plastic straws would still be available for people with disabilities)
  • Make Adelaide the world’s first carbon neutral city
  • Ensure Council divests of any remaining (direct or indirect) fossil fuel investments
