Good Neighbour Agreement 

The City and the South Hobart Community have developed A Good Neighbour Agreement for the McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre.  The Agreement aims to replicate the process of being good residential neighbours; things like keeping noise down, having properties looking neat & tidy, good open & honest communication, and looking out for each other.  The first meeting of the Good Neighbour Agreement Working Group was held in July 2017.  For more information please see the Good Neighbour Agreement(PDF, 1MB).
