The OGCA was formed in early 2003 in response to community concern about two major issues that arose in 2002:
- The threat to the Customer Service Centre and
- The unfair hikes in Council rates for coastal communities.
These issues sparked broad community involvement, and it was widely agreed that Ocean Grove needed an ongoing body to represent the community and coordinate action on such issues.
Now the OGCA is firmly established as the a focal point for discussion, debate and action on local community issues.
In 2020 our main issues are the proposed extension of the Ovean Grove town limit to allow new homes to be build :
- West of Grubb Road
- North of Yellowgums Estate
- and East of Banks Road.
This development would completetly change the look and feel of Ocean Grove – from a rural haven to a suburb of Geelong.
The Ocean Grove Community Association provides a forum for residents and rate payers to work together to improve life in Ocean Grove for all.
Members of the Association are interested in a wide range of topics including the urban and sustainable development of Ocean Grove, transport and traffic issues and environmental concerns. When necessary, the OGCA represents the community in discussions with Federal, State and Local Governments. The OGCA encourages, fosters and sometimes, coordinates community activities within the Ocean Grove district and on the Bellarine as a whole.
Some of what we do
