Residential Amenity

SGB Beautification Through Art

The painting of the bus shelters in SGB was co-ordinated through Kate Reed of the Byron Youth Service as part of their U-Turn Anti-Binge Drinking Campaign. Artists Sam Jaksic and Bridget Perry did a great job with the help of some local youth.

Similarly, the electricity boxes in the area have been painted by Country Energy, and the the toilet block at the SGB Community Centre will soon be painted with other bright designs.

Thanks to Councillor Dianne Woods for her support for these projects and to all those whose efforts made them possible.

Bus shelter on Beach Road

South Golden Beach Community Association strives to improve the amenity of village residents by initiating various projects and alerting Council to community needs. Here are some examples.


Drainage work on Redgate Road (Spring 2011)

Streets and Drains

Drainage in the low-lying community of South Golden Beach has been an issue for many years, as history shows. the drainage plan first put forward in the 1990s is nearing completion. A pump has been installed, and council-owned easements are gradually being cleared, so we are seeing water moving faster out of the area, especially at the easement between Gloria Street and Berrimbillah Court.

The South Golden Beach Community Association continues to appeal to Council for upgrades and improvements, including the clearing of algae from easements to reduce mosquito breeding and improve water flow.

SGBCA also alerts Council regularly to potholes that need attention!
