Getting To Know The SBCG
WHO ARE WE?
Sunset Beach Community Group Inc. is a local organisation, made up of residents who live in the locality of Sunset Beach, a suburb within the City of Greater Geraldton on the central coast of Western Australia’s Midwest Region.
We love where we live, and we all want to see our community thrive and grow while still retaining and enhancing those key features that make Sunset Beach a great place to live, work and play.
HOW DID THE SBCG COME ABOUT?
In 2013 the City of Greater Geraldton and some interested local residents came together during a series of workshops to develop a shared vision of how Sunset Beach will look as it grows and develops in the years ahead.
The discussions at these workshops were captured and refined into what is now called the Draft Sunset Beach Precinct Plan. The Plan has been open for public comment, has been amended in response to some of the feedback, and is now in its final form due to be considered for formal implementation by our local Council.
The Sunset Beach Community Group Inc. was a flow-on from the community workshops. We began with a small number of local people, and within our community of some 1200 individuals comprised of about 330 families, we now have 260 Sunset Beach residents on our regular mailing list.
