Welcome!

I’m excited to offer City of Parramatta residents a highly qualified and enthusiastic team to genuinely represent you on Council and put residents and integrity first.

 

When elected, they will bring my engaged, evidence based and transparent leadership style to Epping, North Rocks and Rosehill Wards.

 

The Community Champions team has a proven track record of advocating for our community and the skills and experience to deliver positive change for our City.

 

I invite you to get to know our team here and in person. 

 

Warm regards, Clr Kellie Darley

Sustainable Development

With Parramatta’s population set to double in the next 15 years, it’s vitally important community infrastructure keeps pace with the increasing density.

Budget icon black

Transparency

The decisions of Council affect our daily lives far more than most of us realise. That’s why it’s so important you are kept up-to-date on Council matters and actively involved in shaping our city.

Vibrant Suburbs

A lot of focus has been on developing Parramatta CBD. But this has come at the expense of livening up our suburbs. Now’s the time to refocus our efforts on making our local town centres more vibrant and improving the liveability of our suburbs.

Parks & Open Spaces

To support our growing and diverse community, we must have a complementary network of fun and safe community spaces for all ages and different interests.

City in Nature

The waterways and bushland criss-crossing our River City go to the heart of what makes our City great. But with the pressures of increasing population density, our natural environment must be preserved and cared for.

Customer Service

Residents who are listened to and informed are much more likely to care for, and be engaged, in their community. It’s important to get the basics right and ensure requests are dealt with in a timely manner.

Recycle Sign Black

Waste Less

What a load of rubbish! We’re spending more on disposing of our waste each year and it’s just not sustainable nor economical to keep going this way. More needs to be done to support residents to reduce what we send to landfill.

Climate Action

Take action to mitigate and build resilience to the impacts of our changing climate on residents and our natural environment.
