The Plimmerton Residents' Association Inc. (established early last century) works hard on behalf of the community, involving many hours of voluntary work. The PRA committee meetings, held at Plimmerton Pavilion (near the Fire Station), are open to the public, normally on the 4th Monday of each month. If you would like to know the exact dates for the meetings, you are welcome to contact the PRA Secretary on 233-0431.
2005 was one of the busiest years in the history of the Plimmerton Residents' Association, with many major issues arising, which included the continuation of the Plimmerton Promenade Project and the Coastal Route Highway proposal. Postive outcomes from these issues have been increases in community involvement, attendances at meetings, and membership of the PRA. The PRA Committee would welcome anyone who could spare a few hours a month to join the Committee - anyone interested may contact the Secretary on 233-0431 or by email -firstname.lastname@example.org
There will always be aspects of ongoing planning or developments in the Plimmerton area which the community may wish to comment on. It is all to easy to say "they should have" or "they shouldn't" and stand on the sidelines with views. The PRA Committee needs lots of input from people willing to lend a hand rather than just comment and assume it is for someone else to do. The Committee would love to hear from anyone who could help.
The Committee has established a very popular Community Email Database. It all started from the Community Consultation evenings held in regard to the Promenade Project in 2004. There are now over 300 members of the community on the database. Anyone who would like to be kept up to date with local issues may register by sending an email to the Secretary (email address above).
