These are just some of our achievements in 2017 in our suburb:

  • Development – submitted compelling feedback from residents as well as a lawyer’s letter to City Transformation & Spatial Planning about an undesirable proposed development
  • Electricity – secured upgrades from copper to aluminium cables on 8 streets
  • Roads – after pressure on JRA succeeded in getting repairs to potholes and poor road surfaces on patches of numerous roads in the suburb
  • Road safety – backed by a petition signed by residents, successfully won a four-way stop at the Komatie – Greenhill road intersection in the shopping precinct
  • Security – daily engagement with key stakeholders to make our suburb safe. This challenge is ongoing
  • Litter – with generous assistance from the late Mikail Schaefer, an Emmarentia resident, together with volunteer residents’ own physical labour, removed 10 tons of illegally dumped rubble and rubbish and supported Felicity Gratz Lawlor’s Let’s Work NPO initiative to keep the parks and general public area clean and clear of illegal dumping and rubbish
  • Botanical Gardens – established a partnership with City Parks and Zoo for the improved security of selected parks within Ward 88 together with CAP and Beagle Watch as registered peace officers
  • Events – raised numerous public concerns with the event organisers and the City and continued to try and reduce the number of events and allied parking problems
  • Billing – referred queries, challenged the councillor to address the billing crisis
  • Greenhill shops – approached the Greenhill Road shop owners to manage the harassment of shoppers by car guards and offered to broker a security solution
  • Planning and Heritage – with the hard work of Gemey Abrahams, an ERA Exco member, continue to manage and approve alterations, additions and new developments in keeping with the suburb’s precinct plan and its heritage.
