Clifton Springs- based members and friends of the Drysdale & Clifton Springs Community Association (DCSCA) will watch with particular interest this week as City of Greater Geelong (CoGG) Councillor John Doull visits the Better Place electric car trial in Tokyo.
Before his departure last week for Japan, Cllr. Doull said on the CoGG website that he had received, 'significant positive feedback from my local community on the electric vehicles project'. DCSCA has provided a significant element of that feedback. When his visit to Japan was announced, DCSCA wrote to Cllr. Doull asking for Clifton Springs to be included in any trial in Geelong of the Better Place electric car system and told Better Place directly that we'd made the request (Bellarine Times, 17 August 2010, p1). Subsequently, DCSCA has maintained our link with Better Place. (See 'Bellarine electric cars' on this blog, August 6 2010.)
Last year, we read with interest Cllr. Doull's report of his visit to the Copenhagen summit on climate change and we expect his report on his visit to Japan to be just as interesting. Bon voyage, Councillor!
