Many residents have contacted me understandably upset about the unnecessary destruction of the giant fig trees on ANZAC Parade. I am very concerned about the loss of these wonderful trees, and know that many constituents in the electorate feel the same. Your emails and phone calls prompted me to make a speech raising these issues in parliament last week.
I visited the area last week with my colleague, Greens Member for Balmain, Jamie Parker.
