Our local budget
Initiatives in the Division 11 Local Area Works Budget 2019-20 and projects in the City Budget 2019-20 Capital Works Program delivers for Robina, Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Waters. It tackles crime, fixes roads, improves parks and helps the environment.
Tough action on crime
Division 11 boasts the most significant CCTV deployment in suburban Gold Coast, deterring anti-social behavior and leading to real arrests. The network will receive an added boost with a fleet of relocatable cameras targeting hoons.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in their home — and in their own neighborhood.
This budget adds to record investment in CCTV by expanding our fleet of relocatable cameras.
New cameras will target hoons on our roads, and creeps hanging around bus stops.
That brings our total fleet to 57, all since my election only three years ago.
It honors my commitment to zero tolerance for all types of crime in our community.”
Tackling congestion and pedestrian safety
“A growing population means more jobs and greater prosperity. But it is a serious risk to our lifestyle.
This budget builds on major road projects delivered in the three two years and will help ease worsening congestion around Robina Town Centre, the M1 and our Health Precinct.
Design work will make overdue projects ‘shovel ready’ and assist me to better pressure local developers.
We do not live in Western Sydney. So our roads shouldn’t feel like it.”

New parklands and playground upgrades
The Division 11 Local Area Works Budget 2018-19 continues to invest in our outdoor lifestyle. Funds will renovate existing facilities and deliver new facilities in suburban parks. Volunteers are rewarded with a generous donations program and recognition at the biennial Community Hero Awards.
This budget refurbishes ageing equipment, relocates assets where they will be better used, and invests in new facilities in vacant parks.
It also funds new active and healthy programs and water refill stations, to give more people, more opportunity to enjoy our great outdoors.
And there is another big boost for Frascott Park — and a grants program to support our P&Cs, veterans and service clubs.”

A yearlong events calendar will help lift community pride. Marquee events will be bigger and better. And smaller, regular events will inject more vibrancy and atmosphere in our commercial centres. Partnerships with schools, churches and service clubs mean bigger events at a lower cost to ratepayers.

These targeted renewal projects address sore points that detract from otherwise beautiful areas.
They are intended to restore the prestige with which Robina and Varsity Lakes were originally marketed.”
Beautification and maintenance
Division 11 is a beautiful, highly vegetated area. But it has been let down by some sore spots. While service standards have improved greatly, many pockets in the community require intensive remediation.

Restoring our environment
Caring for our local environment requires buy-in from everyone: schools, locals and Council. Divisional initiatives multiply the work of volunteers to make the biggest possible impact at the lowest possible cost to ratepayers.

Pest fishing competitions
Project: Sustainable Youth
“Our quality of life depends on the health of our natural areas — our wetlands, nature reserves and waterways.
This budget turbocharges local environmentalists, funding tree plantings, restoration works and litter pick-ups.
It also leverages the benefit of fishing by targeting pest species through competition.
Anglers and our ecosystem will benefit with 50,000 Australian Bass set for West Lake.
