A few months back I wrote a letter of concern to the Sutherland council about the lack of business facilities in the area and how this was forcing my company to relocate to the big city with the other 100 million people already working there.
This lead to an email conversation with someone from the Economic Development unit in the shire who encouraged me to get involved with the council's community engagement program. 6 months later I received this letter from the council congratulating me for being selected for the Shire's economic development committee. I'm a bit sceptical of the process. Just seems like council are just ticking the box next to "community engagement" but it's better than nothing and if anything a way to gain insight into local government.
Glebe - Sans Souci - Sutherland - 30 kms
Road Type: Mostly cycle lanes, shared roads with bike symbols
A year ago when someone told me that they cycled to work I thought they were freaking crazy. I currently work in "the shire" about 30 kilometres outside of Sydney. A 30 kilometre trek to work sounded absurd. But after travelling along the Rhine for a week 30 kms sounded easy peasy and it was. I'm loving this ride along the east coast from Sutherland to Sydney. Most of the way is one bike lanes, and bike friendly roads. Yes, I feel safe most of the time. Yes, it's fun. Yes, you should try it one day!
