Albert Street Trees
This network came together in early 2018 to support Council plans to plant trees in Albert Street between Sydney Road and Nicholson Street. As well as street trees, you can request a tree for your front garden!

You can email them via Brunswick Residents Network (albertstreet2020@gmail.com) and join their e-list, to be notified of consultation meetings, here: http://eepurl.com/dmgBiH 

You can also contact Alex English, the Moreland Council officer responsible for this project:  AEnglish@moreland.vic.gov.au

EAST BRUNSWICK
Bring back due process
This East Brunswick group campaigned to improve plans for the redevelopment of the Tontine factory site (between John and Nicholson Streets). They reached agreement with the developers on issues such as no traffic entering residential John Street. However, the site was sold, the new developers got a planning overlay from the State Government, and the residents found out 7 months later. See their website:

WEST BRUNSWICK
Brunswick Historic Brickworks Facebook page
The Save the Brickworks Campaign successfully advocated for responsible re-development of the Dawson Street (Hoffman’s) brickworks site. Bricks were made in Brunswick from the 1840s to 1993. The imposing chimneys, kilns and brick pressing shed of Hoffman’s Brickworks on Dawson Street are a reminder of this history. Locals have a Facebook page. Please “like” the page, add your own stories, read the information already there, and use it to keep up with local events.
