The Throsby Creek Government Agencies Committee, chaired by the Member for Newcastle, Mr Tim Crakanthorp MP, seeks to deliver cooperative leadership from numerous government agencies with responsibility for the status of the Lower Throsby Creek. The Committee is seeking to further improve the environment of the Throsby Creek water way and its surrounds, and the amenity of the area for residents, visitors and commercial users.
The Committee includes representatives from Hunter Water, Newcastle City Council, Roads and Maritime Services, Hunter Local Land Services, the Port of Newcastle, Hunter TAFE, and Port Waratah Coal Services, as well as two community representatives.
Community representatives were appointed following a call for expressions of interest published online and in the Newcastle Herald.
Members of the community wishing to contact the Committee can do so by emailing the Secretary, or contacting the community representatives Mr John Sutton from the Tighes Hill Community Group (via email) or Mr John McLeod representing the Newcastle Rowing Club (via email).
