The candidates will be asked to answer the following 3 questions based on the top issues raised by residents in our survey:
1. What will your party commit to that will reduce the impact of climate change and speed up the transition from fossil fuels to renewables?
2. How will you ensure that there are guaranteed increases in public, social and affordable housing in all new developments and that these remain in perpetuity?
3. What will you do to improve the connectivity of public transport in NSW as well as increasing cycling and walkability in our urban areas?
