No. 2 – Giles Edmonds
Giles is a long term resident in the Woollahra Municipality who has been actively engaged in the community for many years. He is focused on managing any negative impact of noise, traffic or poor behaviour to the community, including close monitoring of entertainment and licensed premises (not relying on residents to have to be the ones policing compliance). Giles says: “I don’t want to see Double Bay become Sydney’s next Kings Cross”. He is also very keen to ensure that short term letting, such as AirBnB, is adequately regulated, protecting the rights of owners to enjoy their properties in peace and quiet. Giles is passionate about maintaining public transport services to Woollahra Council residents and will advocate to the State Government to protect and restore bus routes.
