AGM and Committee Nominations

The Edgemead Residents’ Association Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, 23 April 2019 from 19:00-21:00 at Edgemead High School. Besides the election of our new committee, our chairman will provide feedback on past and recent activities the ERA have been involved in. There will be an update from our ward councillor. Some recent LPR news will also be shared. Refreshments will be provided afterwards.

Nominations for ERA committee members are open. We could really use some new faces with fresh input in our committee. This is your chance to put something back into your community. Being a committee member is not an onerous task. We meet once a month for about 2 hours to discuss matters that affect our suburb. Additionally there are occasional follow-up tasks that we share between meetings.

Constitution and Nomination forms can be found in the constitution section of our site. Closing date for nominations is 18 April 2019.

Article submissions closed on the 18th of May and our final proof was sent to the printers on the 24th of May. The announcement to halt the increase was published on the 30th of May. Our information was correct and verifiable, and all criticisms grounded, at the time of going to print. As anyone in the publication industry knows when it’s final, it’s final!

If you are pressed for time you should at least try to read the executive summary (445354_CTIA Runway Realignment_Final EIA Report_Executive Summary_July 2016). There is also a lot of detailed information in the noise reports (Appendix 6C_ Noise Specialist Study_Part1&Part2, Appendix 6D_Noise Independent Review). The property valuation study may also be of interest (Appendix 6J_Property Valuation Study).
