She will also discuss Council’s plan to work towards the recently released NSW Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Plan in terms of the uptake of electric vehicles and the supply of charging points for them.

We are always looking to exchange ideas for writing letters to the press. We are looking for ways to facilitate interaction between members of the public and community leaders including our elected representatives at all levels of government.
Finding solutions to mitigate global warming is an urgent matter and all ideas are welcome. Solutions include encouraging political will, and finding ways to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and to draw them out of the atmosphere.
