Top­ics of in­ter­est raised

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Street Watch -

PO­TEN­TIAL Town of Vic­to­ria Park coun­cil­lors had the chance to pitch their ideas to the pub­lic at a Meet the Can­di­dates meet­ing.

The Vic Park Col­lec­tive and Com­mu­nity Fo­rum Vic­to­ria Park hosted the event at the Vic­to­ria Park Carlisle Bowl­ing Club on Oc­to­ber 4.

Thir­teen of the 16 can­di­dates at­tended the meet­ing and each of them was given three min­utes to talk.

Some of the reg­u­lar is­sues raised in­cluded park­ing, rates, com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion, green spa­ces, ac­count­abil­ity, fi­nances and sen­si­ble devel­op­ment.

Ques­tions from the pub­lic in­cluded whether they sup­ported a syn­thetic hockey turf fa­cil­ity at Harold Ros­siter Re­serve.

None of the can­di­dates voiced sup­port for the fa­cil­ity be­ing placed at the re­serve but sev­eral made sug­ges­tions where the coun­cil could look to lo­cate it.

The sec­ond ques­tion asked re­lated to com­mu­nity en­gage­ment with the can­di­dates given their ideas about what the con­cept meant to them.

The last ques­tion of the night was about what the coun­cil could do about cli­mate change.
