Darren Mitchell successfully campaigned against LNP council for firepits in Brisbane


In 2020 at the height of the Pandemic, Brisbanite's learnt that firing up the humble firepit in your backyard was illegal.

I was privileged to lead a public campaign which ultimately forced Council to implement a trial and then perform a complete back flip to allow backyard firepits.

This was a tremendous example of people power and that Brisbane remains a community that can come together and fight for what is right.

Council is about local issues and being the people's voice in City
