Residents’ Associations in Lane Cove
This year will see a huge change in local government. Lane Cove Council will be forced to amalgamate with other councils and a large council will be formed. The Council building will not be down the road and you will not bump into your councilors in the street. So how do you make sure that your everyday local problems are addressed? One solution is to join your local Residents’ Association.
What is a Residents’ Association?
A Residents’ Association is a group of people who work together to represent the collective views of your local area. They highlight local issues and provide feedback on services. We all live in the Lane Cove Council Area but different issues impact different areas of Lane Cove. For example the Mowbray Road District has been subjected to increased development and noise issues, the Greenwich Community Association keeps people up to date on the Gore Bay Terminal.
What do Residents’ Association Do?
- Put pressure on the local council to fix or maintain local facilities such as footpaths, play areas and roads;
- Inform residents about crime and other local issues in their area;
- Campaign on local issues (such as development applications, traffic hazards or issues that impact local schools); and
- Organise social activities.
Why Should I Join a Residents’ Association?
A Residents’ Association is a good way to promote community spirit and co-operation among local residents. It is also another way to meet locals.
