Council Idea

Advocate to State Government for better public transport services - more services, more connectivity to create better connections across Melbourne; advocating for more safety initiatives on public transport.

Remove parked cars along Sydney Road to improve walking, cycling, and public transport - and thus making it a much more pleasant shopping strip. Any increased greenery and amenity you can accommodate on Sydney Road will make a huge difference.

And make sure that people understand that an empty car parked outside your shop all day does not mean more customers. A better street and experience means more customers!

Prioritise retention and improvement of existing parks / green space, and purchase of vacant space to make new parks in parts of Moreland where there aren't many. Yes, this could be expensive, but worth it in the long term for maintaining a liveable and enjoyable environment, especially with the number of apartment blocks being constructed at the moment.

More cycling infrastructure including a path along Edgars creek. This will improve safety for cyclists, reduce traffic congestion and increase parking availability for drivers, and get a few more people out there exercising and enjoying their commute.
