North Sydney Federal Budget Submission 2024-25

Kylea has called for the 2024-25 Federal Budget to include funding for North Sydney's bushland, cycleways, sports and arts facilities; investments in cutting-edge research; and support for vulnerable women and children in the community.

Her submission to Treasury has been informed by in-depth discussions with constituents, community groups, peak bodies, and the four local councils in our area.

Consistent with North Sydney's priorities of climate, economy, human rights, and community, Kylea is seeking funding for:

  • Maintenance and improvement of local reserves and widely used vantage points, including the Lavender Bay Lookout, the historically significant Pumphouse and Lady Gowrie Lookout.
  • Development of much-needed sports facilities to meet growing demand on Sydney’s lower north shore. This includes the Gore Hill Indoor Sports Centre; North Sydney Oval Centre of Excellence in Women’s Sport; and the Primrose Park Sports Field, where better drainage could greatly improve access during rainy periods.
  • Local performing arts venues such as the Zenith Theatre and Ensemble Theatre, which provide significant value to the community but have struggled to remain competitive and bring audiences back to pre-COVID levels.
  • Development of the Chatswood-St Leonards cycleway as well as an accessible change facility in the Chatswood CBD.
  • Programs and organisations that serve North Sydney’s vulnerable, including Mary’s House and the Staying Home Leaving Violence Program for victims of domestic abuse, and youth mentoring organisation Streetwork.
  • Research institutions including the Australian Institute of Applied Ethics, Sydney Orthopaedics Research Institute, and the Kolling Institute to help make the most of the capabilities and potential of people in our community, and whose research could help unlock further social and economic opportunities.
  • Improved Commonwealth Freedom of Information services to support transparency in government process, and an investigation of Australia’s immigration detention regime.
  • Programs and incentives to help reduce Australia’s carbon emissions as well as reducing household costs, such as clean energy incentives for landlords, energy and efficiency incentives for small and medium businesses, funding for the National Health and Climate Strategy, and the introduction of Fuel Efficiency Standards.

Fossil fuel subsidies must also be phased out, Kylea says, highlighting the $9.7 billion that Federal Government spent in 2022-23 on spending and tax concessions for the production and consumption of fossil fuels.
