Welcome to the Newport Residents Association Website
 

The next meeting of the Newport Residents Association will be held on Tuesday 15th April 2014 at the MONA VALE Community Hall at 7 pm. An Agenda will be posted under the Menu item 'Meetings & Events' app one week before the meeting. There has been a conflict with an exhibition at our normal Newport venue, hence our relocation to Mona Vale for this meeting.

The next meeting is a special meeting as we have Superintendent D Darcy of the Northern Beaches Local Area Command at the meeting to address us on what has been an ongoing problem of behaviour and property damage at Newport over the last 12 months or so.

 All community members are encouraged and are most welcome to attend, it is important that we have as many Newport and other interested residents and business representatives in attendance to take advantage of this opportunity.  

 We apologise that this site has not been operational for over 9 months. We are in the process of making a number of provider changes but this will take another month or so.  Until we have it fully operational there is no access to attachments or stored documents but we will endeavour to update you with what is happening as much as possible. Thank you for your forbearance.
