The Greens Will Act for The Hills Shire.

Greens on council will act to protect our rural areas, bush lands and parks. New developments must be sustainable, environmentally sensitive and appropriate to the surrounding area. The Greens will listen to the local community for planning decisions. We are committed to reducing the carbon emissions of council buildings and use of renewable energy such as solar power. The Greens will push for good commuter parking at bus stops and train stations for the North-West rail link. We aim to act locally to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Our 5-Point Plan for The Hills

  • Listen to the residents – stop excessive development

  • Preserve our bushland, rural land and parks

  • Reduce traffic, increase public transport, commuter parking and cycle-ways

  • Shift to renewable energy

  • Give power to communities
