Shoreham Community Association Inc. (SCA)

Welcome

The SCA warmly encourages Shoreham residents - anyone who owns, rents or resides in a property within the Shoreham coastal village or hinterland - to become members of the SCA.

Why join the SCA?

Read about the projects that the SCA has worked on over the past few years, and is currently progressing for the Shoreham community.

We work with the community to protect and maintain the integrity of Shoreham and its community; so we can all continue to feel connected to this very special place. The more financial members we have, the stronger our voice will be in representing the Shoreham community to Federal, State and Local Government members and departments, as well as fulfilling our first and foremost objective - to create and facilitate an informed and active community. 
Strong membership means a strong organisation with a strong mandate. Our Community Association is often the first point of contact for government and other organisations canvassing a change or new policy. Mandate is needed also for SCA to proactively address policy or planning matters.
You must be a paid up member of the SCA to nominate or vote at our AGM held in July each year.  Meet our current members of the Committee here.

Background to the formation of the SCA

The SCA was formed in 2011 to give a voice to the Shoreham community, to identify community needs, create an informed and active community, and advocate on behalf of the community.

It was formed as a result of the community's recognition of a need for representation, following the extensive work of the Taskforce over the inappropriate development of the Post Office and the General Store, and the work of the Interim Working Group canvassing the community on plans for the Shoreham Triangle.

The community endorsed the rules of the SCA at a public meeting on 4 June 2011.  Councillor Frank Martin attended the public meeting to report to the community and take questions from the floor. He also declared the election of the office bearers and ordinary committee members.
