Two years ago, I raised with the then Hall Committee the need to provide an on-site defibrillator at the Community Centre.

Our village populations median age is 59 yrs. (Median means having equal numbers above and below this number). Of course, heart failure for example can occur at much younger ages but can be expected to show an increasing risk as we age. Given our demographic, a defibrillator must be considered a critical piece of life-saving equipment

Two Ambulance Stations are listed as servicing North Arm Cove, Tea Gardens,19 klms. and Buladelah, 37 klms away. From resident experience,...

There is a bit of work required behind the scenes to keep our website running smoothly. Last week, Bob R and Tony H managed a major security upgrade without crashing the site. Doug K had given them comprehensive notes and was available to fix any problems if required. Neither Bob nor Tony have any computer training, so congratulations to them for successfully undertaking this upgrade. Obviously, our North Arm Cove seniors can learn new tricks.

A question was asked at Saturday’s residents’ meeting as to why NACCAi is involved in the developments at Fame Cove if they really have nothing to do with us and don’t affect us.

It occurred to me that there are probably quite a lot of people in our village who, for one reason or another, have little or no knowledge about what’s been going on.

Without going into too much detail, I’ll try to clear the air a bit.

Fame Cove is a misnomer for 400 hectares of headland on the eastern side of the Cove. It...

Some notes on land valuation:

The council prepares its budget, then theoretically calculates the return from rates it requires to fulfil that budget. It spreads the rate charges out in proportion to the latest land valuations. If your neighbour’s valuation goes up more than yours, he/she will pay proportionately more. If the council's projected expenditure comes down (and pigs fly), all our rates should come down in proportion. The point being that a land valuation increase doesn't necessarily mean higher rates.

The valuations are supposed to be based on unimproved land. This should mean that, if you have...

Valuer General Land Valuations

Most landowners at North Arm Cove would have received their July 2019 land valuations in the last two months. If you disagree with the valuation you have 60 days to lodge an objection. The last date to object is written at the bottom of the Notice of Valuation.

These valuations are based on local sales figures and are used to determine rates and land tax.

If you think that your valuation is incorrect, lodging an objection online is easy. The land valuations and property sales figures for all of NSW are...
