Hawkesbury City CouncilOur Councillors and Our Plan for Hawkesbury
Danielle is committed to better services, protection of our environment and heritage and a democratic Council that puts residents first.
Danielle lives in Wilberforce with her husband and son. She and her husband work locally and run a small business. Danielle has a long history of community activism in the Hawkesbury, including as spokesperson for the successful fight to save the Australiana Pioneer Village. She is a committee member for the Hawkesbury Environment Network and a former member of the Heritage Advisory Committee. Danielle is a scientist and sustainability educator who understands Council processes. As a member of The Greens she is committed to real grass-roots democracy, including an open and transparent Council where residents can speak on all matters.
The Greens will continue to vote against any development, large or small, that does not have adequate infrastructure to support it.
We believe that developers should fund new infrastructure not rate-payers.
The rates restructure in 2013 was grossly unfair, raising some residential rates by 40%.
The Greens will overturn that decision and make sure that families on small residential blocks are not forced to subsidise those on large acreage.
The Greens will prioritise the environment over development to protect it for the future.
We will clean-up noxious weeds on public land, restore the Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad to target and clean-up illegal dumping, get damaging
wake-boards off the river and put solar power on all Council buildings.
The Greens will never support Option 1 to replace a two lane bridge with a two lane bridge.
We believe that Windsor deserves a bypass that protects our heritage, gets heavy vehicles out of Australia’s third oldest town, and provides a long-term traffic solution for the Hawkesbury. We will continue to fight for a fair deal from the State Government.
The Greens have a plan to Renew Windsor.
We will employ an Economic Development Officer and introduce free WiFi, pop-up shops, artists, performers and musicians, maker-spaces, Christmas lights and seasonal events to improve business and increase tourism.
The Greens will improve our roads using local road crews and prioritise those roads in the worst condition that get the most use.
We will work towards a standard of fixing potholes in 72 hours.
