Event:
Nedlands' future focus of attention at pre-election Q&A
A question and answer session organised by the Nedlands Electors Association will provide a great opportunity to start a conversation with locals says Nedlands Mayoral Candidate Cilla de Lacy.

Residents are invited to the free forum to talk about what they want for their city on Sunday, September 22, from 1.30pm in the Banksia Room at the Mount Claremont Community Centre.

Councillors up for election will each be given three minutes to talk about their aspirations for the city.

Nedlands Mayoral Candidate Cilla de Lacy urges ratepayers to become involved in a conversation about how to deal with ageing infrastructure, reduce rates and revitalise local centres.


Cilla says she will use her three minutes to share her passion for developing new opportunities for the city while coming up with a strategy to reduce costs.

She wants to urge ratepayers to become involved in a conversation about how to deal with ageing infrastructure, how to reduce rates and revitalise local centres and what to do about the lack of strategic planning for the development of major transport corridors.

There will be an opportunity for residents to ask questions of the candidates who attend the session and Cilla will be available afterwards to talk to individual audience members who want to talk more about the future of their City.

Nedlands ratepayers can have their say about what they expect of council candidates in the Banksia Room at the Mount Claremont Community Centre on Sunday, September 22.


Her own plan is to work with the community and State government to rejuvenate the city's sporting infrastructure, which would include developing multi-purpose centres that might include a café which would bring different sports and the community together in a central location.

Cilla thinks another topic of conversation could be about how Nedlands Council manages its buildings, many of which are ageing and built for a different era.

With 25 years of professional experience in public policy and strategic planning, Cilla is particularly interested in strategic planning for the city and wants to create a Nedlands policy that outlines what its character is and what a liveable city means to residents, which makes it worth protecting.
