Wakerley Meals on Wheels begins to take shape

I'm pleased to advise that after significant delays, work is finally progressing on the Wakerley Meals on Wheels Centre and Netball Courts.

Wakerley's wait for dog park almost over

Prior to the last Council election, I received a Change.org petition signed by over 200 Wakerley residents requesting Council provide a dog off-leash area for the Mossvale Estate.

Due to a variety of environmental and constructability factors, Watervale Parade Park was the only suitable location identified.
