Justin Doyle, sitting in the sprayer and Fernando Perez, at Barnwell Park Golf Course. Residents warned of pesticides used FIONA BRADY CANADA Bay Council has adopted a Pesticides Notification Plan to keep resi- dents informed about pesticides used in public outdoor places. Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said the council is committed to keeping the community in- formed of everyday operations. ''The Pesticides Notification Plan ensures that all residents have access to this important information and can avoid areas where pesticides have been recently used, if they wish,'' he said. He said the council's pest management program tried to use humane and cost- effective methods that had minimum im- pact on the environment. ''Extreme care is taken when pesticides are applied to public places and council staff in charge of this are fully trained and qualified,'' Cr Tsirekas said. ''Council also makes sure to take an integrated approach wherever possible to reduce the use of pesticides. ''This may involve removing weeds by hand in area where pesticides are not necessary.'' The Pesticides Notification Plan, which outlines the public places covered by the plan and the types of pesticides used, is available at www.canadabay.nsw.gov.au.

Keep it Local The NSW Government's controversial pro- developer laws were passed in the Upper House last week with some minor concessions, following overwhelming opposition from the community. The 'Keep it Local' campaign forced the government to back down with concessions including; making private certifiers more accountable, trialing the housing codes and reinstating councils' right to use levies to fund regional facilities. The fact remains however that these laws are fundamentally flawed, and will strip council of funding for essential services and reduce the rights of local residents to have a say. Canada Bay Council supported the 'Keep it Local' campaign with many other Councils. The campaign generated tens of thousands of individual emails from all over the State.
