Five minute advocacy
The Wollongong Council Draft Delivery Program 2022-26 and Draft Operational Plan 2022-23 is on exhibition for community contributions until 31 May 2022.
It is imperative that every person who rides a bike in Wollongong or cares about making Wollongong better for cycling makes a submission supporting the budget allocation for cycling.
Your submission can be as simple as:
“I support the budget allocation to cycling in the Draft Delivery Program 2022-26 and Draft Operational Plan 2022-23. I support an increase in budget allocation to fully fund the implementation of the cycling strategy to make Wollongong a more resilient and livable community for all residents.”
You could add a bit more, something like:
“I understand the pandemic and recent weather events have put a strain on the Council’s budget. Increasing the resilience of the community to withstand such events and decrease their severity is the reason Council should prioritise the implementation of the Wollongong Cycling Strategy. Your commitment to implementing the Wollongong Cycling Strategy is crucial for the well-being of all residents.” https://our.wollongong.nsw.gov.au/delivery-program-operational-plan-2022
