Janet Davidson

Greater consultation between Perth City Council, the community and business is the main thrust behind Janet Davidson’s vision for Perth if she is re-elected on May 1.

“At the moment we have question time in council meetings, but really we don’t have a public system where those who don’t pose questions in writing can have can have two-way conversation with their council representatives,” Mrs Davidson said.

“I think that sort of communication is critical. It’s come up and been knocked on the head at least twice, but I think we badly need it.”

Mrs Davidson said pedestrian-based malls should be further developed to foster retail growth.

“Forrest Chase could be the heart of the city. The CBD needs to be humming but retail is critical,” she said.

“There needs to be no further deregulation of Sunday trading hours to stop the drift to the suburbs and bring people back to the city centre.”

Ms Davidson is a member of a number of community and business based committees in-cluding the Stirling Council’s Heritage Inventory Committee/ Council and Advisory Group, Northbridge Rotary and Northern Suburbs Youth Options board of management.

Once project leader on the WA Government’s Taskforce on Family and Domestic Violence, she is an active Justice of the Peace and secretary to the National Council of Women.
