Priorities for Garden City and Fishermens Bend

  • early implementation of the Garden City Reserve and Sandridge Beach landscape plans including paths, lighting and more trees

  • getting an effective buffer in place between the port and Garden City

  • protecting resident amenity from port intensification and increased freight traffic by:

  • making the Plummer St bypass the route of choice for heavy traffic

  • working to achieve a Dockside Road that exits directly from the port

  • supporting the rail link from Webb Dock to get freight off road and onto rail

  • ensuring no b triples on residential streets

  • much work at Murphy's Reserve to further improve the grounds including replacing the fence on Plummer St as a priority
