Great idea Council :) The older generation could benefit from outdoor exercise infrastructure. This could be near to existing and new playgrounds, and would help older people staying fitter, and, visual in our community. We are seeing upgrades of playgrounds for children, not so for older folk.

Greater use of Blackmans Bay beach by opening it to dog walking in early morning and late afternoon in summer and all day in winter.

This forum is very badly conceived, very badly set up and uses unfriendly "we v you" language.

If the Council is not going to take it seriously, you are wasting our time.

Create a village feel with more cafes and terrasses, car free zones, walking and cycling area. A good swimming pool for adults and children. Enhance the potential of the beaches as community area with events etc.

I enjoy living in Kingborough because:
I was able to find the kind of house we wanted, close to Hobart, a developing mix of residents, and good access to beaches, walks, bush, services, shops.
It is important to me that traffic problems don't get out of hand, that development is a bit more sensitive to natural values, that the Council does not get overly influenced by lobbying from noisy vested interests and that there is some attempt to create cohesion in the currently disjointed commercial area.

Find a way to unify the various shopping hubs in Kingston. Right now there are 6 - Kingston Town, the complex around Big W, two in John Street, the Coles one and the one down the bottom where Shiploads is. This makes shopping in Kingston a nightmare, as they're designed to encourage people to drive to each one, with separate carparks. After driving to a couple of them with kids I just want to give up and go home. Walking between them is a lousy experience too, and prevents anyone without a car, e.g. the elderly, from doing much shopping. Until this is resolved Kingston will never become a prope...

Proper waste collection services on south Bruny Island, especially in the summer months. This is what ratepayers pay for, after all.
