    At the Community Drop-in Sessions on 2 and 4 September 2017, we asked participants to tell us which priorities were most important to them and what they thought was missing: In an activity designed to capture which priorities people felt were most important, participants were given four stickers to indicate their highest priorities. The stickers could be spread across different priorities to highlight up to four, or multiple stickers placed against any priority. “Working with neighbouring Councils” was selected as a high priority by 10% of participants. The top three elements of this priority participants highlighted as being most important are to:• Partnership with other councils to supply services to allow the City to employ in-house specialist staff, resulting in better economies of scale • Continue to work with other councils for the benefit of the Nedlands community• Participating in the Native plant subsidy scheme

      Many areas of Nedlands still waiting for underground power share boundaries with other Councils. This presents problems but also opportunities for roll out. The Town of Claremont has signed off on a project to finish underground power in its area and it includes lots adjacent to a parcel of the Hollywood Ward. Nedlands should engage with Claremont to include this small area in their project. For reasons of economies of scale it makes sense.
