The Park Lands belong to all of us and this public land should only be used for the public good.

As we grapple with climate change, Colonel Light’s vision for a city in a park has never been more important. The Park Lands are the lungs of our city and must be protected.

The Park Lands are under increasing threat from powerful vested interests and unfortunately the State Government is all too willing to gift private developers our public land. I will continue to stand up for this vital public space on Council.
