Heatherdale Community Action Group 'celebrating a successful win'

By September 13, 2006No Comments

The Heatherdale Community Action Group Inc. (formerly the Heatherdale Road Action Group) continues to grow as it strives to represent the Heatherdale community.

Tonight’s meeting included the Manager of Property and Rates from Whitehorse who explained the process of revaluations and a State Emergency Services (SES) volunteer who spoke about the Nunawading SES and the service they provide. The role of Victoria’s SES cannot be underestimated as it responds to emergencies such as floods, severe storms, earthquakes, road accidents as well as search and rescue. It is great to see the Heatherdale Community Action Group inviting speakers who are able to provide details on what is an essential service for Victoria.

The meeting also covered the recent court case and adverse finding against Southern Rocycling. I am pleased to say that the community was appreciative of council’s efforts calling the verdict a ‘very successful win’.

The court action, which was the first such case against Southern Rocycling, demonstrated that the concerns shared by the community were real and that they had a genuine grievance.

I thank the Heatherdale community for their patience and dedication in regard to Southern Rocycling.
