Balloons Banned in Shoalhaven

Greens led the way in Shoalhaven City Council by joining Eurobodalla and Bega Valley Shire Councils in banning the release of balloons and on the use of helium to inflate balloons at Council events and in Council managed reserves.
Also resolved at the 28th March ordinary meeting of Council was to write to the State Members to inform them of the decision and urge the Members for Kiama and South Coast to introduce legislation to ban the use of helium to inflate balloons and to ban the release of balloons across New South Wales.
A submission to the Federal Government Draft Threat Abatement Plan would also be followed by Mayor Amanda Findley, SCC Voting Delegate at the Australian Local Government Association 2017 National General Assembly, to introduce a Notice of Motion urging Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg to introduce similar bans at a National level.
