Edward Crossland

Candidate for City of Yarra - Curtain Ward

Hi, I'm Edward

I’m a town planning, transport engineering, and urban design professional, long-term local, and the Mayor of our wonderful City of Yarra. Since being elected to council in 2020, I’ve been a dedicated advocate for our vibrant community. 

I’m proud of the many things achieved since I’ve been on Council, such as new open spaces, accelerating our tree planting program, improved bike infrastructure, recycling initiatives, new parklets and the action we’ve taken to push back on the State Government’s plans to demolish public housing. 

Our local area deserves a representative who brings voice to our community, will work collaboratively on Council and with both State and Federal representatives; to achieve great things so our community can thrive. 

As your Councillor for Curtain ward (Princes Hill, Carlton North, and a fab part of Fitzroy North), I will continue to champion safer streets and routes to schools, accessible transport, better planning outcomes, making Yarra better for local businesses, and climate action. 

Together, let’s create a more supportive and inclusive environment for our wonderfully diverse community.  

Your vote is powerful.
