Residents' association is incorporated

A residents' association has been formed to represent the interests of the Peninsula community.

The association has been incorporated as the Woy Woy Peninsula Residents' Association Inc and is now seeking members, said its public officer Mr Julian Bowker.

Mr Bowker said: "The Peninsula Residents Association aims to serve as a non-partisan forum and give the Woy Woy Peninsula community a collective voice on matters affecting its quality of life.

"It is committed to protecting and improving the Peninsula's liveability and sustainability including social and environmental aspects."

Annual membership would cost $20.

Mr Bowker said: "Its objectives are to openly disseminate information, discuss and identify the concerns and needs of the Peninsula residents, and to represent and advance the interests of residents at local community level, and with Local Government, and State and Federal Government bodies."

The association would "seek to improve the infrastructure, amenities and services available to residents and the Peninsula community, and to advocate responsible planning and development of the Peninsula, its neighbourhoods and adjacent areas, with Council, other government agencies, community and business groups".

It would "encourage strong community engagement and participation in the decision making of Council and other bodies, and collaborate with other groups on matters of mutual interest".

The association would undertake and help coordinate other activities which benefit and improve the liveability of residents and the Peninsula community, Mr Bowker said.

He said the association defined the Peninsula as the residential area contained by the Rip Bridge on Maitland Bay Dr, Staples Look-out on Woy Woy Rd and the Spike Milligan bridge on Brisbane Water Dr.

As well as suburbs such as Ettalong, Umina and Woy Woy, the area also covered The Bays, Pearl Beach and Patonga.

The boundary coincided with the Australian Bureau of Statistics SA2 statistical areas of

Woy Woy-Blackwall; and Umina - Booker Bay Patonga.
