We are holding a major event at Mortlock Park in Colonel light Gardens on Saturday 11 November "Remembrance Day". School children from local schools will be camped out at Mortlock Park. Various history lessons including the significance of Colonel Light Gardens as a training ground in the First World War will be explained. We will honour the fallen in an RSL conducted service at 11am. Please consider coming if you can, a history of Mitcham will be a feature of the event.

 Council has been briefed on the proposed Blackwood Roundabout upgrade. Work will commence at the end of this year with completion in time for Anzac Day events. I must say the much needed improvements should ease traffic concerns. We acknowledge Minister Hamilton Smith for supporting the funding of these works. 

I have been involved with interviews of applicants that will make up the new "Development Assessment Panel". From next month changes to planning mean that only one Councillor will be on the panel with other members being appointed independent members. Applicants have a significant amount of experience and I was very impressed with them all. I must say I think an independent panel could bring a better outcome for all. 

I hope to finalise negotiations with a Blackwood property owner for start on a commercial centre upgrade. The confidential negotiations it is hoped will be a stimulus for private investment in the area. 

Council recently took delivery of a new street sweeper, I approached Engineering with a request for the service to be brought in-house. It seems that this is the type of service that Council should be providing and not outsourcing. 

I congratulate our Engineering team on work conducted carried out in regards to LED Street Lighting. The introduction of this technology will deliver considerable savings to our residents.
