These groups dedicate their time and effort to specific goals, campaigns and projects under the overarching umbrella of the 5049 Coastal Community Association’s strategic plan and according to defined Association protocols. They carry out a broad range of activities: from working to keep in touch with all levels of government and other organisations to represent the interests of residents; organising community events to bring people together; to carrying out environmental projects.
A team leader coordinates the group’s work – including to seek funding opportunities for a specific area of interest or concern, canvass residents who wish to be involved, achieve a particular goal and campaign actively where appropriate.
The 5049 CC Task Groups can count many achievements thanks to their work – have a look at our information on Campaigns and Projects. If you are interested in participating or chatting with someone about their work, contact the team leader or email ‘Attention task group leader’ to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Seacliff Park Development
The Association and the community support the development in principle as a potentially positive contribution; however we recognise our ability to have limited to no influence over the outcome, due to historical experience and the scale of the development. However we will continue to monitor and seek opportunity for influence within our capacity; and reserve the right to support direct action by the community if the need arises. However, as always the devil is in the details.
Liaises with and supports dedicated environmental groups in the local and broader area where issues impact on our community. Shines a light on matters of importance that require broadcasting to our members and stakeholders with a call to action where appropriate.
