Support  for Residents

Community Support Centre Phone:5488 4800

The SAVETHEMARYRIVER co-ordinating group has set up a support centre at the old Kandanga Co-op building. This will be a drop-in point and a source of support and information for people affected by the announcement. 

When you, as a landholder, receive information about the dam process, it is important to remember that it is not an overwhelming crisis, it is a piece of paper. YOU SHOULD NOT SIGN OR AGREE TO ANYTHING until you have had time to seek legal advice and consider your options with as much information and support as possible. You are not alone - the Mary Valley community is tightly knit and has deep roots in this place. We will look after each other.
