We are residents, property-owners and family members who love Rosedale’s natural beauty, its native forest and beaches free of commercial development.
When commercial development threatened in the early 1970s, we banded together to form the Rosedale Association. Our goal is to protect the coastal bushland and beaches, to enhance Rosedale’s low key living environment and close-knit friendly community.
Through an elected committee, the Association presents community views to the Eurobodalla Shire Council, local MPs and other community organisations. We take an active interest in planning, development and environmental issues.We want to keep this small coastal hamlet’s appeal for residents, tenants and visitors for generations to come.
If you’re a Rosedale resident, ratepayer or family member, please join us!
Financial members of the Rosedale Association elect a committee at the Annual General Meeting, generally on Easter Saturday.
President: David Boardman
Secretary: Vicki Smith
Treasurer: Melissa Gribble
On behalf of members, the committee meets regularly with Council and the Rural Fire Service to raise Rosedale issues.
We make formal submissions on development and environmental concerns. We communicate with members by email, newsletter, this website and Facebook. We manage donations for environmental work such as weeding and restoring the sand dunes and we also work closely with Landcare. The committee appoints a Fire Officer who advises us on fire risk, fire precautions and investment of donations for fire equipment. We work to raise awareness of water safety on Rosedale’s unpatrolled beaches, including regular demonstrations of surf rescue and resuscitation.
