“Issues such as greater plantation of native flora and beautification of our streets are important for our community.

“Thank you to everyone that has raised concerns about local traffic and pedestrian safety – particularly the parents who had filled out the School Safety Survey from my office.”

The School Safety Survey was a NSW Labor initiative which allowed parents from schools across Canterbury to communicate any issues they saw while their children walked, biked or drove with them to and from school.

A report, based on the survey, was prepared and sent to Council and the NSW Government with a range of recommendations to ensure greater safety when children are travelling to and from school.

“I encourage everyone to continue to have your say and relay your issues and concerns to Council by contacting your local councillor” said Ms Cotsis.

Residents are able to find details about their local councillor by visiting: or contacting council via phone on 02 9707 9000.
