Vision for Stonnington

WHAT I PLAN TO DO FOR STONNINGTON CITY COUNCIL SOUTH WARD

Trustworthy Governance

Act with integrity, represent the views of the community and work collaboratively at all times with councillors and the management team. Apply the highest standards in governance, allocate funds responsibly, and oversee financial management with robust controls in place.

Planning

Responsible and transparent decision making so that the character, history and heritage of our neighbourhood is preserved, open and green spaces are maximised and development decisions balance population growth with community needs.

Economic and Social Recovery

Support our local businesses and residents to recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and revive our retail, hospitality and arts precincts. Reactivate public facilities and services, evaluate new ways of working, identify opportunities for efficiencies and create strong social connections to improve the well-being of our community.

Public Spaces

Responsible maintenance of our streets and parks, investing in facilities which represent the needs of the community. Ensure that the local environment is safe and inviting, promoting solutions that are sustainable for current and future generations to enjoy. 

Inclusion

Embrace difference and continually strive to create a sense of belonging. Ensure that diversity is valued and celebrated, and that services provide equal access to the whole community.

Services

Continuous evaluation and improvement of the services delivered by council ensuring quality childcare, maternal child health and aged care services. Advocate for waste solutions that are cost effective and environmentally responsible.
