Get the Goulburn Base Hospital Parking Right First!


The continuing debacle of the Goulburn Base Hospital redevelopment now includes an admission by Health Infrastructure that there is still no acceptable parking plan for the project - both during and after the redevelopment.

This week I have been approached by residents in neighbouring streets whose driveways have been blocked for hours. 

Even the Council has finally realised that unless the parking issues are resolved NOW, they will never be properly addressed by the NSW Government.

I'm saying- GET THE PARKING RIGHT FIRST, before spending good money after bad on this folly of a Hospital redevelopment. 

It isn't too late for Health Infrastructure  to stop, take stock and realise that a Greenfield Site for A New Hospital is by far the better longterm investment for Goulburn. 

Let me know what you think. I want to hear your voice on this issue!

Give Murrumbateman the Primary School it Deserves

More than 600 children get on busses from Murrumbateman each day to go to school in Canberra or Yass. Despite endless campaigning from locals for the re-establishment of a local school, the NSW government continues to say "no". The NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes  says NSW will build 12 new schools... but not one in Murrumbateman.

This year the ACT government has limited the schools that children from outside the ACT can attend. The Yass Primary Schools are at capacity.

Do you think that Murrumbateman, the fasted growing part of the Yass Valley should have a school as part of the social infrastructure for the community?   Schools act as community hubs. Labor committed to a school in 2015 and still believes Murrumbateman needs its own school now, to take young children off the Barton Highway. 

What do you think?
