Liverpool City Council continues to do its bit to help make our growing city an even better place for people to live, work, study and spend their free time.

It's important for us that we hear from the community and I encourage you to have your say on the Liverpool Positive Ageing Action Plan 2021-2024.

Council is seeking feedback from over-55s, their families and carers to help guide the future growth and development of Liverpool as an age-friendly city.

You can take our short survey at listens.liverpool.nsw.gov.au before November 12.

I'd also like to thank everyone who added their ideas to an online survey to create a new park in Leppington, west of Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Council is working with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment to deliver this new public space under the Parks for People program.

The insights collected will now be used to inform a draft concept plan which will be presented to the community for additional feedback and input before the plan is finalised.

Please visit dpie.nsw.gov.au/parksforpeople for more information.

Finally, I was concerned to read in last week's Liverpool Champion that Liverpool has the most amount of faulty Takata airbags to be replaced in Australia. A total of 604 airbags.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is raising awareness about the national recall. The airbags can explode with too much force, even in low-speed accidents.

Please urgently check if your vehicle is fitted with a faulty airbag and arrange to have it replaced. To find out, go to ismyairbagsafe.com.auand enter your numberplate and state.

Owners are entitled to have the faulty airbags replaced for free.
