Formation of the Seaford Community Committee (SCC)
Seaford's "Village Voice"

Background:
Frankston City Council held a public meeting of Seaford residents at the Seaford Community Centre in February, 2012. The result was a friendly, energetic and positive workshop experience attended by in excess of 120 enthusiastic residents who proudly love to work and reside in Seaford.

One of the proposed projects that received high support was the formation of a committee to voice and progress residents' issues - the "Village Voice".

The Seaford Community Committee was born in February, 2013, following calls for people who live and work in Seaford to apply for membership. We are always looking for volunteers who are passionate about Seaford and would like to make a real contribution to the Seaford community.

 

Outcomes:
The major outcome of that first meeting was the "Seaford Local Area Plan" - a To-Do List of issues raised. It is available here ==> https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1_RO8yB1fC2QWdzX01NdHM5VXM

 

Goals:
Using the Seaford Local Area Plan as a guide, the Committee wants to "keep Seaford as it is by protecting the good stuff but also improving the bad stuff". We also intend to try to address other achievable issues as they arise. Whilst we can't promise anything, we are already working hard.
