North Metro Issues

Sensible infill

Alison has been working with a number of residents and community groups within North Metro who are concerned about the future of their neighbourhoods. Constituents have repeatedly raised concerns about substantial developments planned for old areas of Perth – and fear more poorly planned infill leading to reduced tree canopy; the loss of public space and well-loved landmarks which do not fit the criteria for heritage listing. This has often been carried out without the better transport links, and economic and cultural benefits which are supposed to come along with urban infill.

Protect Swan River dolphins

The Swan-Canning riverpark is home to a pod of 19 bottlenose dolphins which, as at September 2018, included nine adult females; seven adult males; seven juveniles and five calves.

The dolphins live in a precarious environment. They are vulnerable to the impacts of decreasing water quality through rubbish pollution and chemical run-off from agriculture. The pod is particularly at risk of entanglement in fishing nets, and injury from boats and other human recreational activity.
