The Questionnaire

We have produced a Questionnaire that asks candidates where they stand on 20 key Blue Mountains environmental issues.

The Questionnaire was sent to all "lead" candidates and we now share their response with you.

The candidates' response are provided for each ward - so an easy comparison can be made for that ward's candidates.

       Ward 1  -  Ward 2  -  Ward 3  -  Ward 4

We have also provided a summary with our comments.

The Society does not recommend who to vote for.

About The Society

The Blue Mountains Conservation Society was formed in 1961. Its mission is to "conserve the natural environment of the Greater Blue Mountains".

It has been pursuing this mission by being fully aware of, and responding to, -

In recent years this has included the draft Local Environment Plan 2013, the 10/50 Vegetation Clearing Code of Practice, Shooting in National Parks, Western Sydney Airport and the current review of biodiversity legislation.

In the 2016 Council Election we will be asking candidates where they stand on key environmental issues that affect the Blue Mountains.
