No. 1 – Luise Elsing
Since Luise was first elected to Council in 2012 she has been passionate about protecting the individual rights of residents, the enjoyment of public places and the preservation of the heritage and character of our local neighbourhoods. She is particularly concerned about traffic and parking and delivering solutions which enhance residents’ experience and quality of life. As an independent Councillor Luise is best positioned to ensure that Woollahra Council advocates of behalf of its residents in relation to State Government development targets and controls. This is particularly relevant in relation to proposed overdevelopment in Double Bay and Edgecliff.
