Imagine intersections designed to prioritise pedestrians? 🚸 Here’s a great ‘how-to’ guide to getting real action in your streets: “If all else fails,” says Tumlin, “put yourself up for planning commissioner, or run for city council.” Traffic engineers might be the ones you see out there on the corner implementing small fixes—but when it comes to implementing more systemic change across the city, it’s elected officials who hold the power.” That’s why I’m running!! We’d install 1000 safe pedestrian crossings in the first term of council! 🚦🚸✅ Read the whole interview here
This week The Greens announced a citywide Brisbane City Council initiative: A HOME FOR ALL 🏠🏠🏠. This initiative tackles support for women and children dealing with domestic violence, housing affordability and homelessness though social housing that would provide 1000 homes / dwellings per year. The Homes For All program would see Brisbane City Council build or purchase up to 750 homes every year, with an additional 250 dwellings (15% of all new apartments) transferred to Council ownership by developers. A Home For All will increase the available supply of crisis housing for women and children seeking safe accommodation, while also tackling the city’s growing housing affordability and homelessness crisis. Watch what Trina Massey & Cr Jonathan Sri have to say about it A Home for All - Trina Massey & Cr Jonathan Sri And if you'd like to read about the policy in depth, have a look at our policies A Home For All.
Did you hear? After ten years of fighting by the community we stopped the 20-story high rise next to Buranda State School From going ahead. This victory has followed many years of campaigning ... I founded the The Better Buranda Project with other school parents Belinda Hogan, Fi Cameron and Phil Vaughan and fought this development at every level of government. Thanks to the school community for all your hard work and support!!!
