Greens seek to exploit Labor divisions over Adani with assault on marginal seats Sydney Morning Herald Remote 2017-07-09

The conflict between unsustainable, dirty-coal energy and our present global warming emergency is exemplified by the Adani Coal Project, and other multiple coal mine planned for the Galilee Basin in Queensland. The Australian Labor Party has understandable leniency towards coal interests. Unions want mining jobs, and state Governments want mining revenue.  Many more people want a future, and need this planet to be livable.  The more our planet warms the less livable it is.  The death of the entire great barrier reef is only one step further. The Greens oppose new Coal mining projects outright, and will be knocking on doors in electorates to hurt Labor where it matters.

Greens want Empty Homes Levy to help fund local community housing Here Blog 2017-07-27

MEDIA RELEASE by Parramatta Greens : 6 August 2017

The Parramatta Greens today launched a new plan that will free up local rental accommodation and raise more than $5.0 million per year for the City of Parramatta Council to spend on community housing. The most recent Census data shows more than 5,450 homes in Parramatta are unoccupied. That’s almost 7% of properties, and it’s a troubling figures given the current housing crisis. The Greens’ Empty Homes Levy would enable Parramatta City Council to charge an additional levy on the owners of untenanted investment properties, with the revenue being invested in local housing projects. There is huge need for affordable housing in Parramatta, where the median price for houses is $675,000 and for units $609,000. No wonder that homelessness is increasing.

Serving All Residents Here Blog 2017-11-10

First, I would like to thank all who exercised their democratic right to vote for their council representatives, including for me as the first Greens councillor for Parramatta.

This opportunity was welcome after being denied the right to vote in 2016 as a result of our council amalgamation with a government appointed administrator.

Parramatta residents deserve sustainable development and a fair 50% value deal for public infrastructure Here Blog 2018-09-02
From a press release by Parramatta Councillor Phil Bradley.
It is unacceptable to have wealthy property development companies able to override the public plans of the Parramatta community by offering to give the Council money.
Allowing wealthy developers to override our planning regulations while requiring the rest of the community to abide by them is discriminatory and undemocratic.

However where Parramatta Council continues to allow this undemocratic process, the Parramatta Greens will continue to insist that the community receives fair value for the increased profits that result in the developments exceeding the planning regulations.
