Council Budget for Wynnum Manly Ward

On Wednesday 16 June the 2021/22 Brisbane City Council Budget was brought down. Below is a brief on some of the funds received for our community.

The big winner for our community and across Brisbane is the re-introduction of the kerbside collection.

My colleagues and I worked hard with petitions to pressure the Lord Mayor to bring this service back and I am pleased to say it has been brought back.

Kerbside Collections will commence in the Wynnum Manly Ward on the following dates:

Lota and Wynnum on 21 February 2022, Wynnum West and Manly 28 February 2022 and Manly West 7 March.

Collections in neighbouring suburbs like Hemmant and Tingalpa will also occur around the same times. Contact my office should you want dates for other suburbs, outside Wynnum Manly Ward.

Suburbs across Brisbane will incur on average a 3.75 per cent increase in their rates. In the Wynnum Manly Ward increases are as below:

Wynnum West 4.6%
Manly 3.2%
Manly West 4.0%
Lota 3.1%
Wynnum 3.7%

I am pleased to confirm that Wondall Road will be resurfaced. I have been lobbying for some time to have this road repaired, as well as Petersen Street, Wynnum. The other roads being repaired are:

Glenora St, Wynnum; Colina St, Wynnum; Cranleigh St, Wynnum West; Clare Ave, Wynnum West; Radford Rd, Manly West; Yaringa St Manly West; Cambridge Parade, Manly. The total cost is $2.096M.
