We’ve now passed the 100 day mark since being sworn in as the Pullenvale Ward Councillor. In that time, Council has brought down its budget in which we were able to secure significant funding for important projects throughout the Ward. It has also been a challenge trying to meet face to face with local community groups, schools and residents to hear their issues and achieve outcomes on their behalf. We must continue to heed the advice of the medical experts and observe hygiene and social distancing practices and take nothing for granted. Don’t forget, if we can be of assistance with any Council related issue, please contact my Ward Office during business hours. The details are in the footer of this newsletter.


Earlier this month, I traversed the many bus and Personalised Public Transport routes within the Pullenvale Ward to get a better understanding and feel for the services provided by Brisbane City Council. Overall, I believe the Ward is well serviced but there is always room for improvements and as a member of Council’s Public and Active Transport Committee, I will continue to advocate on behalf of local commuters and lobby the State Government which ultimately determines where the buses go and don’t go.


I have met with local Queensland Police Service officers to discuss their concerns about anti-social activity in Booker Place Park, Bellbowrie, particularly after hours. They presented a comprehensive report addressing their concerns and a number of recommendations. I support their recommendations and have forwarded their report to Council’s Parks Committee Chair and will be discussing with her what can be done to once again make Booker Place Park a safe place at all times for local residents.


More than $2.2 million was allocated in the recent Brisbane City Council budget to upgrade and resurface roads in the Pullenvale Ward this year.
This month, resurfacing commenced at Sylvania Court, Kenmore (from Gladesville Street to the end of Sylvania Court) and Pulas Place, Bellbowrie (from 4 Pulas Place to Diosma Street). And more good news. The resurfacing of Kenmore Road between Sunset Road and Vidgen Lane should be completed by the end of September.


Neighbourhood Watch Groups play an important and proactive role in working with the Police to help reduce crime and make our communities a safer place in which to live.
We are fortunate to have a number of strong Neighbourhood Watch Groups in the Pullenvale Ward.
This month, I joined the Bellbowrie NHW Group’s AGM meeting online and was the guest speaker at the Brookfield NHW Group’s AGM where I presented a Certificate of Recognition to Alan Scott for his many years’ service to the group.


I recently wrote to nearby residents about Council’s plans to relocate the existing playground within Considen Place Park, Bellbowie. The responses received were supportive so Council will now look to incorporate their suggestions of a bigger playground and more shade into the final design.


I will be conducting a Mobile Office out the front of the Karara Downs Family Grocery Store, corner of Tanderra Way and College Road tomorrow (Wednesday 26th August) from 10.30am.
Then during September, I will be at:
  • Café Fiori, Kenmore Village – Wednesday 9th September from 10.30am
  • Moccabella Café, Bellbowrie Shopping Centre – Wednesday 16th September from 10.30am
Just look for my sign. I look forward to meeting and chatting with you.


Unfortunately, the change in COVID-19 advice over the weekend led to the postponement of last Sunday’s Karana Downs Markets. 
Tanja and the organising committee can’t take a trick after wet weather intervened in July but I’m sure that when they eventually return, it will be worth the wait. 

 And don’t forget, the popular Brookfield Markets are held at the Showgrounds every first and third Saturday morning of the month.
See you at the Markets soon.


Last week, the State Member for Moggill, Dr. Christian Rowan and I were invited to be part of the interview process of candidates seeking leadership roles at Kenmore State High School in 2021.
I am pleased it’s not us having to make the final choices, such was the very high calibre of candidates we interviewed. It reassured me our future is in very good hands.
