Budget and Long Term Financial Plan

Preparation of this important work from staff and Elected Members has taken many hours and meetings. This is now reaching a stage where the completed budget will be coming to Full Council for approval and for public consultation. The budget is then returned to Full Council for final approval, after considering the public consultation input. 

Development - Kegworth Road to Regent Street, Melrose Park

As reported previously, this development went out again for Public Consultation as the previous notification provided insufficient time for residents to submit to the developer. The second consultation closed on 28 February and that information has been forwarded to the developer - Junction Housing for consideration. 

The roadway joining Kegworth Road and Regent Street appeared to be the major problem, as well as the height of the central unit complex. The through road would create a rat-run through the development. Two lanes were considered at the 7th February residents meeting and new plans for the roadway should be with Council by mid to end of March for their consideration and final approval. 

Community Forum

Our recent Forum was jointly held with Babbage Ward at the Cumberland Park Community Centre. Only two residents from our Ward attended the meeting, this is the worst attendance I can recall. There cannot be any problems in Overton Ward! 

Repatriation Hospital

At the time of writing this article, we are still unaware of who the eventual owners will be. No contract has been signed. All political parties are in election mode and the Government cannot sign or approve major sales. Depending on the outcome of the election will determine what is developed on the site. We are hoping for a medical precinct or even better the Repatriation Hospital is reopened. 

We all await the outcome! 


The State Government has changed the Planning rules and they require Council to future plan the zoning of the City. This is being considered in precincts. 

Several meetings have occurred and Council is in the preliminary stage to this point of time. 

As always, you are able to contact me for Council business on 8277 1884 or 0402 517 945, so I may assist you.
