"My vision for Waverley is for a caring society where Council tries not to interfere in people's daily lives but ensures the Municipality is clean and tidy, and good affordable services are provided to all residetns, visitors and business owners, and we all move towards a more sustainable future.

With a growing population of children and 17 schools in Waverley it is imperative we concentrate on developing playgrounds and sporting facilities so our children grow up to be healthy and active."
