OSCAR’s Objectives

  • To ensure local government related issues, that the Sunshine Coast community are seeking action on, are raised with election candidates prior to the election on 25 November 2017,
  • To ensure the range of issues we are seeking answers on are in line with the OSCAR members’ requirements and help to advance the reform agenda OSCAR is pursuing on behalf of our members,
  • To ensure the position of individual candidates in the 8 electorates are communicated to members so they can make an informed decision in casting their vote – keep in mind that with the 4 main parties (LNP, ALP, Greens and One Nation) and independents there could be 40 plus candidates contesting the 8 Sunshine Coast seats,
  • To get commitments from candidates and parties on issues identified by member organisations including, but not limited to:
    • Local Government Governance issues – eg ban on developer donations, confidential sessions etc
    • Primacy of our Planning Schemes
    • Handling of Local Government complaints
    • Cost of Right To Information for Not For Profit groups
    • Population Growth implications and policies to deal with this
    • Transport Infrastructure
