What we did in 2017

What we do

Your committee meets monthly and advocates for members in many ways.

During the last twelve months we have had a representative at almost every Council meeting and have spoken on your behalf at many of them.  Subjects have been:
  • Traffic problems and the inadequate road system
  • Peel Park master plan.  
  • As a result of this we were made  “stakeholders” and now have a say in what happens in Peel Park.         

Some of the submissions we have made are:-
  • State Government Inquiry into Windsor Bridge 
  • Council regarding Planning matters.         
  • The latest is to Council regarding the plan to expand the Blue Water extraction plant at Bowen Mountain.

We work with HEN and Streamwatch to conserve Redbank Creek. This involves sampling and undertaking further education with the Australian Museum.

We have dialogue with CAWB and members act as ambassadors to protect Thompson Square

Some of the  letters sent to relevant State and Federal Ministers  have dealt with :-
  • Meals on Wheels
  • RMS
  • Heritage Commission
  • HCC  pollution including sewage identified in the steam
  • The Gazette
  • The contractors for roadwork at traffic lights (Downer Mouchel)
  • Mail drop regarding Peel Park

We have met with and attended workshops with Greater Sydney Commission
Currently we have a nominee on Sydney Water Reference group for this area

Participated in :-
  • ‘Fit for the Future’ meetings.
