Profile and contact
Cr Evonne Moore
Living in Maylands for over 30 years, I appreciate the historic and heritage residential parts of our Council area, as well as its garden suburbs. I am impressed by the strong community spirit of our residents, and the work which our local community groups carry out.
I have a Diploma of Teaching, an Honours Arts Degree and a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies. I have worked as a secretary, school-teacher, public servant and tutor.
I am passionate about protecting our built heritage and the desired character of our residential suburbs. For several years I served as a spokeswoman for the St. Peters Residents Association which tries to help residents and keeps a watchful eye on Council. My past experience as a local councillor includes serving on the former St. Peters Council in the 1990s, and on our current Council for ten years.
I oppose the long-term destruction of our character garden suburbs to make way for endless urban infill housing. My greatest immediate concerns are new houses being built without back-gardens, SA Power Networks butchering our street trees, and the State government stripping planning powers from local councils to stifle residents’ concerns about new development.
I work as a volunteer for several community groups including Save Our Suburbs Adelaide, Friends of the Billabong, the Nature Education Centre, Cats Assistance to Sterilize and Neighbourhood Watch.
My favourite pastimes include spending time with my partner Ian, reading, gardening, dog-walking and soaking up TV crime shows.
