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.
