Sunbury mother of two Meghan Morrow is worried a Tiger snake that’s taken up residence at a popular Jacksons Hill playground will seriously injure a child.

She wants to see a snake proof fence erected around the playground.

Ahead of Hi-Quality‘s first online community forum, where the firm will outline its vision for a waste-to-energy plant in Bulla, SunburyLife contacted local Hume City Council representatives, and MP Josh Bull, for their views on the proposal.
