Non-urban Study 2003

Woden Valley Community Council expresses it’s appreciation to the representatives of the various bodies and associations that contributed so much to our community consultation on the Non-Urban study. To the Bushfire Recovery Task Force for briefing us; and to ACT Forests, the community associations from Pierces Creek, Stromlo and Uriarra, the Rural Lessees Association and the Sustainable Rural Lands Group for sharing their perspectives and concerns with all those present. Thank you also to the Woden community for attending and contributing.[teaserbreak]

As a Community Council we have been much thanked and congratulated for this consultation – but we are very conscious of merely being the forum and conduit for giving ‘air’ to community issues.

Much of the content and sentiment of this consultation has already been relayed to ACT Government Ministers via a number of those present at the meeting; and we hope we can continue to be effective advocates of community concerns.

The AGM of our Community Council is on 1 October, 7.30pm, Orpheus Room, Hellenic Club, Woden. We hope many of you will join us in a relaxed atmosphere to reflect on the year past and the challenges facing Woden in the one ahead. We are also particularly keen to have new comers on our Council Executive. With so much happening around Woden, and with so many exciting things on the horizon, our current executive of seven is rather stretched. Please come and join in.
