Recovering Redbank Creek Project

NRDCAA is a member of Hawkesbury Environment Network (HEN). HEN and Bass Sydney Fishing Club are forming a local group to assist in the following project and have started to make contacts with local landholders or anyone concerned about the Redbank Creek (its water quality, its banks, its fauna, etc.). Robin Woods is the local contact for HEN who is working on this plan. She is inviting people to contact her with their interest in the project.

Recovering Redbank Creek Project

Over 40 kilometres of Redbank tributaries connect the Creek from Kurrajong, Kurmond, Grose Vale and Nth Richmond, down to the Hawkesbury River.  But it’s in pretty bad shape at the moment! Its banks are degraded, its waters polluted, and its animals, such as platypus and fish are finding it hard to live here. Further development will be putting more pressures on this system, so the time to act is NOW!

 Please read this flyer and contact Robin if you would like to get involved
or if you would like more information. Details attached.

Meeting 20 February, 2012

YES it is that time AGAIN!!!!!!

The monthly meeting of the North Richmond and Districts Community Action Association (NRDCAA) is to be held on this Monday 20th February at 7:15pm at the North Richmond   Community Centre, William Street, North Richmond.

We have a lot to report in light of  the Member for Londonderry , Mr Bart Bassett refusing to come and speak to the people that he is supposed to represent.

HCC meetings, Redbank Creek and the “fall out” from the meeting with Mayor are all on the agenda.

Please come and show your support and sign the petition. We have the problems that we have because we have been too nice and polite over the years and haven’t asked for anything now when we need it we are being ignored and insulted by people who are supposed to represent us.

IF you want things to improve then you, your family and friends MUST become involved and active- even if it is only writing letters to the local paper, the Premier and especially the person who is supposed to represent us – and gets paid handsomely for it both at a State level and as a Councillor on HCC.

As usual there will be a cuppa and a raffle. I look forward to seeing you there.

Colleen Turnbull
Secretary NRDCAA

Can Bart Bassett refuse to attend our meeting?

Is Mr. Bassett able to refuse to represent members of the association plus families, friends and residents who regularly attend our meetings?

Letters have been sent to the NSW Premier and Ministers for Roads and Ports and Planning and infrastructure to ascertain the Liberal Party Policy.

A copy of the letter sent to the Premier can be viewed here
