The environmental achievements continue to flow from the Greens initiated Sustaining Our City program at Randwick City Council under current Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey.

Randwick Council under Greens Mayor Lindsay Shurey continues to roll out environmental initiatives under its Sustaining Our City Program initiated by Green Councillors back in 2004.

The latest project is to be the installation of electric car-charging-sites in Randwick in partnership with Waverley and Woollahra Councils under the “3-Council Regional Environment Program”.  Much of Randwick’s contribution to this regional partnership is paid for by the Council’s Sustaining Our City program, which is based on an environmental levy.

The roll out of car charging sites is described as a first for local NSW Councils with a Randwick Council report stating:

“These public electric vehicle charging sites will be a first for local Councils in NSW (and apparently only second for local government in Australia, to those installed in the City of Adelaide).”

ARE you interested in electric cars? Switching to one is about to become a lot more practical if you live in the eastern suburbs. 😄🚗👏

The Sustaining Our City Programs was initiated by former Randwick Green Mayor Murray Matson in 2004 and is recognised as the flagship policy of the local Greens.

Eight charging sites are to be installed in the three Council areas with four in Randwick at:

  • Brook Street, adjacent to and outside the Coogee Senior Citizens Centre
  • Silver Street carpark, Randwick
  • Randwick Community Centre, Randwick
  • Des Renford Leisure Centre, car-park, Maroubra.
