Mount Hutton and Windale Residents Action Group

I recognise the Mount Hutton and Windale Residents Action Group and particularly Ray Hinton, a staunch community advocate in the Charlestown electorate. The residents action group was the catalyst for a campaign to rehabilitate a clogged waterway in Windale and Mount Hutton, locally known as Scrubby Creek. Their advocacy has seen Lake Macquarie City Council agree to allocate $500,000 to fixing the creek. The works will include part of the creek being deepened, rock beds replaced and fallen willow trees, abandoned shopping trolleys and rubbish being be removed.    

These planned works are expected to make a big difference to the localised flooding in the area, as well as bring the currently neglected creek back to its former glory. I commend Mount Hutton and Windale Residents Action Group on this successful campaign. They are a true example of how a community working together can create change.
