Given that the former state government focused ion developments around the riverbanks precinct, and North Terrace, Council must address the needs of residents and businesses throughout the city. The South West has been notoriously underfunded by Council, which I will strive to solve.
As Lord Mayor, my priorities will be to
Ensure new infill development in the South West is of high quality, and compatible with the scale and character of existing buildings and streetscapes, with adequate car parking.
Upgrade roads, footpaths and underground electricity in all residential and commercial streets, and plant large avenues of shade trees.
Re introduce a meaningful owner-occupier residential rate rebate to encourage a greater percentage of owner-occupiers with long-term commitment to their properties and the area.
Address restrictions that make driving and parking ridiculously frustrating in a city of Adelaide’s size. Let’s undo the traffic gridlock.
