who we are

We are a group of local residents who love Thirroul village and represent the community voice that has not been heard. We are concerned that the proposed Thirroul Plaza redevelopment will forever change our beautiful village.

We are not opposed to development. We would love to see a well designed development that will support our lifestyle and improve our town centre. We believe any development should be designed in consulation with the community.
