Throsby Creek Government Agencies Committee
We are working together to further improve the environment of the Throsby Creek waterway and its surrounds, and the amenity of the area for residents, visitors and commercial users.
The Throsby Creek Government Agencies Committee is chaired by the Member for Newcastle, Mr Tim Crakanthorp MP, and seeks to enable cooperative leadership from numerous government agencies who have responsibility for the Lower Throsby Creek.
The Committee includes representatives from Hunter Water, City of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie City Council, Roads and Maritime Services, Hunter Local Land Services, the Port of Newcastle, Hunter TAFE, Port Waratah Coal Services and two community representatives.
The Throsby Creek Catchment Agencies Plan was developed in consultation with relevant agencies and the community and captures a consolidated vision for Throsby Creek.
