"My vision for Waverley is for a caring society where Council tries not to interfere in people's daily lives but delivers excellent customer service when it does. That the Municipality is clean and tidy, with good affordable services for all residents, visitors and business owners. Most importantly Council needs to be financially sustainable and ensure that we protect our environment wherever we can.

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."
