Ban plastic bags in Moreland.

Use this as an opportunity to make a minor social change that's future forward.

You can support this change by:
- making biodegradable bags available at key points *shopping centres*.
- making free fabric bags available
- encourage businesses to donate and add their branding i.e. Brought to you by Moreland Council/Your local footy club/Bunnings or whatever.

Thanks for the opportunity to raise this idea, not rocket science this one!

Review street and park tree planting strategies in the City of Moreland to ensure that all future plantings are able to withstand the likely impacts of climate change, including choice of suitable species, provision of an appropriate watering strategy, including the use of storm water harvesting where appropriate, and provision of an appropriate communication strategy to ensure the community is informed and understand the new strategy.

The intentional noise pollution from two and four wheeled vehicles with open exhausts should be subject to State fines - and the proceeds could go to sound barrier walls where needed. Will Council make this a submission to the Victorian Government?

More frequent collection of greenwaste, with bigger bins.

Advertise the freely available mulch at Council's depot in Coburg, and make it available at other sites around Moreland. It's our green waste, why can't we get it back!

Conduct a study of the council activity using a scientific life cycle approach, and use it to communicate on the actions being taken to reduce impacts of council activity.

Supporting resident in keeping their goods as long as possible, and provide a network of businesses capable of effectively repair them. Create or promote repair cafes helping to reduce the disposal of electric/electronic goods or furniture. Short term consumption of complex goods is a significant driver of climate change.

Reduce the impact of stormwater pollution on the Merri and Moonee Ponds Creeks.

The Moreland area is only going to become more congested as new apartment buildings go up, I would like to see it become mandatory that all new builds include solar panels. For apartment blocks the panels can be used to power the amenities (car park lighting etc). There is so much opportunity for empty roof space to be utilised.

In keeping with Council's idea to retain and improve Moreland's existing natural environments - its parklands, grasslands and waterways, prepare a MASTERPLAN for the Moonee Ponds Creek that will guide the future protection and enhancement of this key waterway and open space corridor of Moreland.
