Petition to Improve Roads on Scotland Island


We are trying to get a larger annual budget from Council to improve the roads and drainage on the island. We recently had a number of Northern Beaches Council over to show them the state of the roads around the island.

For years our Roads and Drainage team have worked with Council and have achieved significant improvements over the years but because our budget is small it will never be completed without further funds.

Now that we have a new Council and the support of our local representatives both State and Federal to lobby for more funds we have launched this petition to convince the Council to address this problem with further funds so that we can establish and implement a 5-10 year plan for Scotland Island.

Your help is needed so please click on the following website;

Thank you

2 Queen size slatted bed bases (preferably with storage drawers) 2 Queen Mattresses, Glass dining table and 6 chairs, 2 timber coffee tables, with drawer storage, 2 oak bedside tables, 2 sofa beds (fabric, older "classic" style, preferably in beige or brown) front load washing machine in good working condition.
