Linda Eisler was a Greens Councillor on Canterbury Council from 2008 till 2017. She did not become part of the amalgamated council’s advisory panels, as she believes the community has not been adequately consulted on the amalgamation. However, she has continued to represent the community with the new administration and has liaised successfully.

She has always demonstrated honesty and has been outspoken in her representation of residents and community groups. She is reliable and fearless in her commitment to her constituents.


While on council she has consulted widely from her participation in a large number of working groups like disability, multicultural, floodplains management. She established the Environment and Sustainability Working Group. Amongst her achievements was the establishment of a regional energy study; developing the Interfaith Talks; chairing the GreenWay.
Linda believes that the community needs to understand and have a say in what Canterbury-Bankstown looks like and how it develops in the future. Greenspace and public facilities like schools and good public transport are vital to a healthy community. So is reasonable and sustainable development.

A solution that is transparent, costed, sustainable and in the community interest, not developers. Green supporters were not the only ones impressed. People are disappointed with their current political representatives.

Canterbury Greens held a successful overdevelopment forum. 150 people attended. Speakers from community groups, Canterbury Greens Convenor Janice Hall and David Shoebridge MLC spoke. The community is angry that they are not being notified or given the appropriate opportunity to have a say over changes. They are concerned that what is being built is inappropriate. The infrastructure- schools, hospitals, public transport, green space is not accompanying the development.

Community Group Representatives from Ashbury and Belmore urged residents to talk to each other and get active notifying Local Councillors and State Government of their dissatisfaction with the way they are being treated.
