Local playgrounds are an integral part of the Canberra community. They provide children with fun, excitement and the opportunity to exercise, while parents and carers can socialise with like-minded people, relax and decompress.
Too many playgrounds are old, dilapidated and in some cases dangerous. Many simply do not provide families with a pleasant experience.
Please nominate a local playground which requires upgrading by completing the below survey.
Please let us know your ideas for how we can make Franklin better.
Thank you for you interest in making Tuggeranong a better place. Please let us know your comments.
There is currently underway a trial of delivery drones in the suburb of Bonython. We would like to hear your thoughts about this trial, and about the potential for this service to expand.
Community Clubs in the ACT make a significant contribution to the local communities in which they exist. Clubs supported over 1000 local community groups and clubs last year. We understand that without the contribution that clubs make many of these community groups they would cease to exist and would ultimately be a great loss to the Canberra community.
Unfortunately, the Labor-Greens Government is not a fan of the current community contributions model whereby the clubs distribute money directly to the community. They want to siphon a large portion of those funds into a third party organisation and/or a government arm to then make the call on where the money goes.
Please let us know your thoughts on the issue.
The ACT Labor-Greens Government’s proposed changes to our bus network include significant cuts to dedicated school bus services. The loss of dedicated school buses will force young children on to the regular bus network. Many children will have to change buses at interchanges just to get to and from school. This raises serious safety concerns for many parents, and schools and families are not happy about the proposed changes.
If you support dedicated school buses in the ACT, please sign the petition, and also like our page on Facebook.
The ACT government is in the process of overhauling Canberra’s public transit system. Included in the changes are cuts to dedicated school buses and fewer stops. Before you let us know how these changes affect you, be sure to have a look at information about the new bus network which is available at https://canberrabuses.com.au/
As your local representatives, we want to know how these proposed changes will impact you. Please let us know how you will be affected by the government’s plan and if there is anything we can do to help you.
