  • Flooding Some time ago Woollamia residents met with Council flood engineers.  The Manager of Environmental Services, Michael Roberts, has planned to continue the conversation over a series of 3 meetings. These are: 1. An online meeting / presentation will be held 25th August (this Thursday) between 12pm and 1pm via Teams.  Environmental Services will give a bit of background to flood plain planning, and how that links with the Coastal Management Programs, Development Applications and storm-water management.  If you would like to join this meeting, and haven’t already indicated so, please reply to this email. Or if you’d like to join but don’t have access to a computer, let us know.  This meeting will be recorded. 2. A site visit with Michael Roberts (Manager of Environmental Services) will then be held. The NSW SES can be scheduled to attend this meeting. Date TBA. If you’re interested in attending this please think about what days / times work best for you.  We’ll do our best. 3. The Manager of Environmental Services and Council flood staff will also attend the HWCV October meeting to discuss the issues and solutions raised in the previous meetings (1 and 2). If the community thinks its useful we can also ask the NSW SES/NSW Police Force (emergency response)  to attend this meeting.  
  • As noted above the next HWCV meeting will be on 17th  October.  The meeting will have a short presentation from Trish Jeffs from the Resilience Project regarding the use of the Huskisson Community Centre as an Information Hub. This will be followed by a discussion around flooding in Woollamia.  The meeting will conclude between 8 and 8.15, and be followed by our  AGM.
