Southport Update Report

I am pleased to inform you that Council unanimously voted in favour of my request for a proper, formalised approach to homelessness.

This approach will provide a much needed 'Homelessness Action Plan' and 'Homelessness Protocol'. This is a profound step as Council has never formally addressed this matter before. Now, we will be in a position to robustly hold the state government to account to provide adequate housing and essential counselling & rehab services.

Funding is also allocated for two full-time city law officers, who will work outside normal business hours, focussing squarely on homeless related matters on our streets. This includes a zero tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour that is impacting on the safety and well-being of residents and business owners.

As always, if you have any concerns or want to catch up, please contact the office on 5581 6280.


Until next time,




Cr Brooke Patterson

Your Councillor for Division 6
