Contact Council and Government Decision-Makers

It's important decision-makers know our community is aware of the lack of transparency and consultation on this massive project. Find contacts and key messages to assist with drafting emails or making calls.
Showing you understand your right to use Moreland's green recreation spaces (regardless of your fitness or interests) will make a difference in the fight to keep them accessible for everyone.
