Hi everyone,

What a busy year it's been in 2017 and 2018 is shaping up to be busier than ever. Congratulations to all the primary and high school students who have graduated over recent weeks. We have the best schools in Australia right here in Tennyson Ward and it has been amazing to celebrate the diverse achievements of young people, their families and teachers in our community at their awards events and graduations.

There are a range of Christmas events on across the ward over the next two weeks to help you get in the festive spirit, from carols and Christmas story time to festive shopping events. Check out the details below for what's on in your neighbourhood.

Also our Council libraries are running their annual Christmas fine amnesty. During December, Council will waive any library fines when you donate a non-perishable food item or two. Now is the time to bring back those outstanding books or let Council know about a lost book and help those in need at the same time.

Finally, the State election is over and for many in the Ward there are two new State Members. Mark Bailey, Member for Miller previously Yeerongpilly (Chelmer, Graceville, Tennyson, Yeronga, Yeerongpilly, Fairfield and parts of Sherwood and Annerley) and Jess Pugh, Member for Mt Ommaney (Corinda, Oxley and part of Sherwood) are the new faces in some areas. Jackie Trad, Member for South Brisbane, Annerley (part) has been returned in South Brisbane. I'll be working with them to progress joint Council - State issues and to support the wonderful community services in our district.

Finally, thank you for your feedback, comments and support throughout 2017. We've had some wins and there are still some challenges too, but it's been a wonderful year locally and I am so proud to represent our community at Council. I look forward to working for you again in 2018.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a safe and happy New Year,


Ps. The ABC's Christmas appeal this year is supporting Meals on Wheels. We have two local services at Yeronga and Sherwood who do a brilliant job helping the elderly in our community. If you are looking for a Christmas cause to donate to then this is a great one that will help locally and around Queensland! 


The toilet facility refurbishments at Faulkner Park, Graceville is complete and what a difference it has made! 

Works undertaken included installing new toilets and cisterns, knee operated hand basins and polished stainless steel mirrors. The concrete floors have been acid cleaned, sealed and coated and the exterior has been pressure cleaned and painted.

The disabled cubicle doors have been enlarged in both the male and female toilets to provide better access, while there's also new exterior signage to designate the male and female toilets.

This was a much needed upgrade for the popular netball courts and has provided much better facilities for those utilising Faulkner Park.

In coming months, Council will undertake extensive tree planting along Seventeen Mile Rocks Road, Oxley. 90 trees are proposed for planting along the section between Fort Road and the train line on both sides of the road. Residents along this section will be consulted on the plantings and given the option to remove their frontage from the planting.

During resident notification, tree trimming will also be undertaken along this section of road to improve pedestrian access and vision. This will be undertaken during the Tennyson Ward's tree maintenance cycle next scheduled for February.



Council has agreed to install a 275m inbound and outbound 40km/h school zone with flashing signage on Ipswich Rd outside Mary Immaculate Catholic Primary School. This is an important safety measure to help protect school students using the green walk signal outside Mary Mac and Our Lady's.

The new signs and lines will be installed in March, 2018 during school holidays. This is such good news, as it was a big issue raised with me at the recent Annerley Town Hall meeting. We will have to keep pushing for an Annerley Junction speed reduction, but this is great news for school students who need to cross the road near Mary Mac and Our Lady's.


Pedestrian countdown timers will be installed at the intersection of Ipswich Rd and Dudley St before the end of the year. This is great news for those using the intersection, which is close to Junction Park State School, popular shops and bus stops. 

The green walk signal here was also recently extended by five seconds, giving pedestrians more time to cross the busy intersection, which will be made even safer with the addition of the countdown timer.

Annerley Junction traders and parents from Junction Park State School witness accidents and near misses every day at this crossing. It is dangerous and lives are being needlessly put at risk. Major improvements to the crossing were completed in 2012 following a community petition of more than 600 local residents. It is staggering how many cars still seem to run through the red light putting pedestrians at risk.


The local community has started a petition asking Council to undertake a metropolitan traffic planning study investigating the safety and efficiency of Ipswich Road. Support and funding is being sought for traffic management and landscaping solutions to improve the area's safety and amenity, including upgrades at intersections identified as problems by the survey and meeting: Annerley Junction, Venner Rd/Waterton St and Chardon's Corner. Sign the petition here.

Council's flashing portable speed sign has been reinstalled outside 105 Hyde Rd, Yeronga.

The portable flashing speed sign is part of Council's programme to improve road safety around schools and other traffic hotspots. The sign shows a smiley face to vehicles travelling the speed limit and flashes a slow down warning to those speeding. The sign should help to quell speeding vehicles and make the area much safer.

The sign provides Council and the police with reliable information about traffic volumes and speeds. It has been shown to reduce traffic speeds in streets where it has been located to date by up to 10kms per hour.

The sign will stay at this location for approximately 6-8 weeks and will be continuously rotated throughout the ward.

The sign is also currently located at King Arthur Tce, Tennyson, Oxley Rd, Graceville and Graceville Ave, Graceville.


The Brisbane International is being held from 31 December to 7 January, 2018. All residential streets within 1km of the stadium will be subject to 1hr parking restrictions, residents and their visitors excepted.

This affects residents in Tennyson, Yeerongpilly and Yeronga who live within the Qld Tennis Centre Parking Area. Each street within the Parking Area is delineated via the newly installed yellow signs under each street sign and the existing signs on major roads. You can also see a map of the precinct here.

In addition to a parking permit, residents living in Ortive and Paragon Streets will also need a pass to access their street. Please visit my office to apply for a parking permit and street pass if needed.

If you reside within a designated street, you can apply for a permit from my office at Fairfield Gardens Shopping Centre, 180 Fairfield Rd, Fairfield during December. When applying, please bring a copy of the current vehicle registration certificate for each vehicle registered to the property, a rates notice or utiility bill, and your driver's licence.


The Tennyson Ward Office will be closed over Christmas from lunchtime Friday 22 December, 2017.

The Office will re-open on Monday, 8 January, 2018 with the standard operating hours of Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.

For any emergencies over the Christmas break, please contact Brisbane City Council's 24/7 call centre on 3403 8888.

From myself and my staff, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and enjoyable new year.


Commencing Monday, 29 January 2018, Council will be conducting a Kerbside Large Item Collection Service for Tennyson Ward residents.

Items can be left on the kerbside one day prior to the collection commencement date.
Please ensure the following guidelines are observed when placing items on the kerbside for collection:

  • doors must be removed from refrigerators and cupboards;
  • no sharp or dangerous objects;
  • items must be able to be easily and safely lifted by two people.

Council will not collect unacceptable items placed on the kerb and illegal dumping fines may apply if unacceptable material is not removed. Unacceptable items include the following:

  • construction waste;

Preparing for Storm Season
Every year, Brisbane experiences severe weather and it's important to take the time to prepare your family, pets and property. The following tips offer advice on what you should have in your emergency kit and how to stay safe before, during and after a severe weather event.

Before the storm season begins, prepare an emergency kit and trim tree branches well clear of your house. You should also:

  • check and clean your roof, gutters and downpipes
  • identify loose objects in your yard and on your balcony
  • have a supply of plastic shopping bags to use as sand bags for emergency storm water diversion
  • have masking tape and plastic sheeting or large garbage bags available for emergency rain protection

As the storm approaches
When a severe storm approaches, make sure you have your mobile phone close by, and it has a fully charged battery. Listen to a local Brisbane radio station for information and disconnect all electrical appliances. Place your vehicles under cover or cover with tarpaulins or blankets. Shelter and secure your pets and animals.

When the storm strikes
When a severe storm strikes, stay inside, keep away from windows and remain in the strongest part of the house, which is usually the bathroom or cellar. If you are outdoors, find emergency shelter and do not stand under trees.

You should:

  • listen to your portable radio for storm updates
  • if driving, stop clear of trees, powerlines and creeks
  • avoid using the telephone during the storm
  • Find more information in our online safety during a severe weather event fact sheet.

Visit Council's website here  for more tips on how to stay safe this storm season.

In the event of an emergency over the summer period, the Council call centre will be open 24/7 on 3403 8888 and the SES can be reached on 132 500.

BCC Early Warning Alert Service
Brisbane City Council provides free early warning alerts for Brisbane residents and visitors. The alert service, powered by Weatherzone, is intended to provide advance warning of severe weather or other public safety events to help prepare and protect people and property. Sign up here
