Newport is unique because of its beautiful bayside surrounds and its warm and cohesive community. Residents and visitors connect and identify with its special character.
Newport Action Group (NAG) is not against development. It is against inappropriate development that erodes or is inconsistent with Newport’s character and environmental amenity.
NAG has been formed as a grass-roots response to a concern that Council may endorse the sacrificing of a unique neighbourhood in the name of ‘progress’.
- To conserve the Character of Newport;
- To protect the amenity of the environment of Newport;
- To represent a community voice in relationship to local government decision making; and
- To monitor and evaluate major development proposals.
