Initial meeting held to discuss residents' association

An initial meeting has been held by people interested in forming a Peninsula Residents Association.

A group of 10 people met online on Friday, July 16, and decided to proceed with forming an association.

They had responded to an article in Peninsula News which invited anyone interested in forming an association to contact the newspaper.

More than 20 people had contacted the newspaper expressing interest in joining or supporting an association to represent the Peninsula community, said Peninsula News editor Mr Mark Snell.

He said those people who had responded represented a broad cross-section of the community.

Among those attending the initial meeting were representatives of the three local planning interest groups: Residents for Responsible Ettalong Development, Save our Woy Woy and Save Woy Woy Waterfront.

The Grow Urban Shade Trees group and the Rotary Club of Woy Woy were also represented.

The meeting decided to gather suggestions for a draft charter for the association.

Mr Snell said it was agreed that the Peninsula needed a well-organised residents' association to speak on behalf of the community across a range of issues.

It was suggested it could be an incorporated association with regular open democratic meetings.

Mr Snell said such an association could be well placed to propose actions to protect and enhance the Peninsula, and not simply oppose council actions that threatened residents' quality of life.

The group would like to hear from other residents who were interested in being part of the association.

Anyone interested may contact the group by email to
