    Bennelong by-election 2017



    Key issues: Planning + Population

    “I am a professional urban planner and a passionate advocate for my community in Bennelong having a greater say on their future to ensure better, not bigger development.

    “We need better planning that empowers local communities to be more involved in planning decisions and we need to hold a national population plebiscite that empowers all Australians to democratically determine a more sustainable immigration intake.”


    Where is Bennelong?


    We will be reaching out to all Sustainables in Sydney to help.

    Very casual. Anywhere in central Tamworth, such as a pub, where we can reserve a decent sized table (say, in a corner) and be able to hear each other… and has a little space to join a couple of table together if we get more than 10 people.

    Yes, great difficulty in achieving fair media coverage from the MSM… and we had to put up with this disgraceful SBS smear:
