  • Listen, support and act where possible, on identified issues of concern or need.
  • Seek, share and deliver information.
  • Act as a voice, sharing concerns and striving for better outcomes with government agencies.
  • Seek to obtain funds when needed through available grants.
  • Aim to maintain village atmosphere by holding Kempsey council accountable to developments.
  • Ensuring plans and strategies are adhered to.
  • Continue to support the protection of the unique coastal and surrounding environments.
