No. 1 – Lucinda Regan

As a Councillor, Lucinda has advocated against overdevelopment and sought to preserve the special heritage and character of our area.  She has called for improvements in our development controls, actively pursued difficult issues and pushed back against State Government policies. She has advocated for delivery of local facilities and services for families and young adults in a manner that is sustainable to our built and natural environment and she has actively campaigned for Council to take control of Crown Lands in the area to ensure preservation of green open space.  She is an active member of the Rose Bay Beach working party, campaigning to clean up our beaches and waterways.  She believes there are many issues that will be coming before Council in the next term where the community will need a resident focused voice.
