Bayswater Community Committee
Chairperson: Gay Richards
Tel: 445 6568
We are a non-political, community-elected community organisation formed in 1980 to actively work to protect and improve the unique environment and lifestyle of the Bayswater peninsula. In July 2009 BCC became an incorporated society.
The Executive which manages the BCC’s affairs is elected every two years at a public meeting. The Executive meets every two months to discuss local concerns, determine appropriate responses to local issues, and organised community events. We make both informal and formal representations to the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and other organisations to ensure the voice of Bayswater residents and ratepayers is heard.
A newsletter is distributed to all households on the Bayswater peninsula two or three times per year. Please contact us for the latest copy. We are now on Facebook – please “like” our page to keep up with BCC news.
Our community events include beach clean-ups and planting and tidying reserves and O’Neill’s Cemetery.
