“Renewables are the future for energy production – and what a great future it will be! I want to see Ryde embrace this opportunity at a Local level, with rebates, loans and concessions to encourage uptake, research into micro-grids and batteries as community options and the focus on creating jobs locally in this rapidly growing industry.”
“I want to protect our local parks, greenspaces, bushland and the historical sites of Ryde.”
“New housing and developments are needed – absolutely – but developments need to be controlled so that they don’t impact on people’s quality of life and sense of community and connection.”
“Height restrictions on multi-storey builds, no overshadowing of family homes and parks and no encroachment into our precious bushland.”
