Thanks to the concerted effort by council staff and the committee of the Mitchell Park Sports and Community Club, the club has been successful in obtaining a grant of $200,000 from the Office for Recreation and Sport which, together with matching funds from council and $5000 from the football, rugby and sports clubs, will get the hub programme off to a flying start;  the beginning of the planned major upgrade to the sporting/community facility for the Mitchell Park area and a great start to the year.

Thank you to all the stakeholders from the four hubs who have put your names down to be part of the advisory committee formed to access funding for the programme;  your input is vital
to the ongoing success of the programme and much appreciated.

If junk mail is being delivered despite the “no junk mail” sticker on your letterbox you can lodge a complaint with the Australian Catalogue Association which governs junk mail distribution and register on the Australian Catalogue Association website which should put an end to the unwanted deliveries; political, religious, charitable or educational deliveries are exempt.   Stopping nuisance telephone calls can be achieved by ringing 1300 792 958 and whilst this is valid for eight years, charities, political parties and market researchers are exempt.

My motion to ensure mandatory compliance by developers that existing properties are secured and residents notified when fences are removed during redevelopment has gone to the April LGA General Meeting for discussion with the government; watch this space!
