B.U.R.R.A. – Burra – Urila Residents and Ratepayers Association
B.U.R.R.A. is a residents' group whose broad aim is to support the interests of Burra and Urila residents and ratepayers in both the Palerang and Cooma-Monaro administrative areas.
B.U.R.R.A provides a co-ordinated voice for Burra and Urila residents in both the Palerang and Cooma administrative areas, with the intention of making sure that our significant investments (time, money and emotions) and our rural lifestyle are protected.
B.U.R.R.A. provides input to policies and decisions at all levels of
Government to try to ensure that:
The amenity of Burra, Urila and surrounds is preserved and enhanced.
Future development affecting Burra, Urila and surrounds is consistent with existing zonings, is compatible with surrounding properties, and recognises the need to protect the significant investment made by existing residents.
- Services and infrastructure keep pace with the community’s needs and provide value for money.
Connecting with the Community
B.U.R.R.A. uses this website as its primary method of connecting with the community. In April 2012, we started a Facebook page to encourage feedback and comment on community affairs. Our Twitter feed is another we keep the wider community informed of activities and issues.
