The WHJCG has written to Mitchell Shire Council asking for town maintenance to be carried out and for projects to be included in the 2018/19 budget. We can see some action taking place as a result of our letter but there is still quite a bit outstanding. We are informed by MSC that in the next few months a concrete footpath will replace the current decrepit footpath between the Wandong Railway Station and the Wandong Plaza.

MSC has also advised that our request for more trees in our streets will be met this year with another 44 pin oak and ornamental pear trees to be planted this winter.

On 2 May an independent panel heard arguments from the MSC and WHJ groups regarding the zoning of the Sunnyglen estate. The panel response will be handed down in about six weeks.
