MEET THE CANDIDATES.

The Resident Associations of the Dunstan Electorate are jointly hosting a Meet the Candidates event in early March.

The candidates standing for election in this electorate have been invited to outline their vision for our area, and state what they see as the vital issues.

This is our chance to find out what those who aspire to represent us stand for. There will also be an opportunity to ask the candidates questions to help inform our decision on polling day.

The Cracked Code

The fabric of St Peters, College Park, Hackney, Joslin, Stepney, and Maylands may be changed forever with the adoption of the State Government’s Planning and Design Code, which is out for public consultation until February 28th. It collapses all Council development plans into one on-line planning portal. It appears to be a “one-size-fits-all” and “lowest-common- denominator” approach.

THE PAST YEAR

This is the first SPRA Newsletter for some time, however the Association has continued to maintain a watching brief over Government and Council policy issues, and to consider matters that affect our Council area such as the planning changes being forced on to inner suburban councils, by the State Government.

During the year particular effort has been put into the St Peters Heroes Memorial project which will shortly be complete.
