COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION

BURRAWANG AND WILDES MEADOW

VISION

The Burrawang and Wildes Meadow Community Association is a group of elected local residents dedicated to protecting the character, the facilities and sustainability of the village and its surrounds.

OBJECTIVES

To realise our vision the committee of the association has set a number of objectives, which from time to time will be assessed to ensure they remain relevant, namely:

  • investigating practical measures the association can take to protect the character and facilities of the village;
  • how we will stay informed about and respond to development proposals and represent the community on issues impacting the village, its surrounds and our residents;
  • what we can do to improve the sustainability of the village in terms of transport, recreational, educational and communication facilities;
  • the type and frequency of dialogue with Wingecarribee Shire Council or the State Government on matters that affect the village and the area including road and wildlife safety;
  • how we promote the village to ensure it remains viable;
  • to organise, promote and support community events and raise funds for the benefit of Burrawang Wildes Meadow community groups and our residents;
  • applying for grants to improve village facilities.
