Like most members of our local community, I was disturbed by recent vandalism at our local historical treasure, the Royal Botanical Gardens.  These senseless attacks could be prevented by employing a nighttime security guard to watch over our precious gardens. Click here to sign my petition calling on the Minister for Environment and Climate Change to allocate funding for a night-time security guard at the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Recently the Glen Eira City Council called for submissions to survey nearby residents about the Conservatory which is situated at the Western End of the Park.  This conservatory originally came from The Ripponlea Homestead, I am told it was purchased for 150 Pounds – what a bargain!

There has been some discussion recently of the potential of this conservatory being used as a café or eatery.  I share the view of the Friends of Caulfield Park who have significant reservations about  this potential commercial venture on our public land.

It is my personal preference to see the conservatory restored and working as a place of horticultural pursuits for school children and community groups.

Labor Member for Melbourne Ports, Michael Danby today called on the City of Melbourne to consider the safety of local residents by re-opening a section of a public footpath at Queensbridge Street.

The footpath which was used by local residents and pedestrians alike in a busy section of Southbank was suddenly closed a year ago due to the Prima Pearl development on Queensbridge Street, and is not due to open for another two years.
