Meeting Monday 19 November 2012


The final meeting  for 2012 of the North Richmond and Districts Community Action Association will be held Monday 19th November 2012 at 7:15pm  in the North Richmond Community Centre, William Street, North Richmond.

Your Committee has been active with submissions to RMS and the Department of Heritage on your behalf come and hear the results.

There is an exhibition by RMS in Windsor on 24/11/2012( details in the Gazette) on the plans for” Option 1” their preferred option for the new bridge in Windsor that will destroy and damage some of our earliest historical buildings not to mention the businesses there. I urge you to attend the exhibition and then go and see for yourselves how Thompson Square will be destroyed and then make an informed submission. One must remember that it will only be a 2 lane bridge with no accommodation for the increase in traffic that will come from the proposed developments in Glossodia and that there is land suitable for subdivision at Wilberforce and other parts west of the river. We deserve better than another second rate solution.

Citizens Against Windsor Bridge (CAWB) has delivered a petition with over 12,000 signatures to State Parliament against this option , unfortunately NONE of the 3 members of State Parliament whose electorates are in the Hawkesbury would come out to receive it so it was left to members of the Opposition to do so.

The first meeting for 2013 will be on Monday January  21/1/2013 .

I look forward to seeing as many as possible at the meeting on Monday 19/11/12, as usual there will be a raffle, a cuppa and bikkies and good company!!!
