Moreland Council 2020 election – candidate forums and climate info

Moreland Council election

Moreland Council, along with many other municipal and shire councils in Victoria, will go to the polls on 24 October 2020. Nominations close at 12 noon, 32 days before the election day on 22 September. (See Knowyour Council guide to Elections)
Enrolment closed at 4 pm on Friday 28 August 2020. You can check your enrolment at the Victorian Electoral Commission and update details.

Postal voting starts 6 October, 2020. The election will be by postal ballot. Please use the hastag #MorelandVotes on election social media.

Climate Action Moreland will be surveying candidates, asking them to sign a climate emergency declaration, which is in keeping with the existing declaration by Council in 2018. Hopefully forums for candidates will be run for each of the three Council Wards.

Responses will be published on posts for each ward that will contain the list of candidates, party affiliation or alignment (if any), public contact information (website, facebook, twitter if available), and their answers. We may also add extra information or links to 3rd party websites where we think it empowers voters on making an informed decision at the ballot box.

Moreland Council’s eat less meat climate debate #MeatlessMonday

Climate impact of people reducing meat consumption – Nature

Sometimes climate action can rear it’s head in unexpected places. Like the Corporate catering contract for Moreland Council events and meetings discussed at Council’s August 14th Council meeting in 2019.

There was an amendment to the pre meeting circulated Officer recommended motion, that caterers prepare all vegetarian/vegan food for events on Mondays, as a small contribution to the Meatless Mondays campaign to call attention to the high embedded emissions in meat, and start by having a meat free day on Monday at Council catered events.

Sydney Road Option 3 bicycle lanes (Source: VicRoads)

Moreland Council will be submitting a submission to the Department of Transport for a 6 month separated bike lane trial on Sydney Road between Glenlyon Road and Brunswick Road. An important reason driving this is the need to ramp up the use of sustainable transport on Sydney road to address transport emissions, to encourage mode shift away from car use to public transport and active transport in the City of Moreland.

At the August Moreland Council meeting Council debated proposals for the VicRoads Sydney Road Improvement project and the officer recommendation for a submission to the Department of Transport advocating Option 3 with separated bike paths and increased space for pedestrians.
