"Carrington; The Little Venice of Newcastle".
There were an abundance of ideas discussed to make the most of Newcastle's Harbour. Guest speakers were Barney Collins from EJE Architecture and Ellen Davis-Meehan of Key Insights.
The aim being to extend the public useable space across the harbour and Throsby Creek area. Carrington already has a great infrastructure (wide streets, strong village heart, surrounded by water, existing leisure areas, 2 public access points) and based on these the area is well equipped to experience growth in traffic.

Carrington Community Council held a benefit night at the Seven Seas Hotel Carrington on Saturday night.
Emily March is an up and coming young swimming champion from Carrington Public School.
She swims across all disciplines and has great success in everything she enters.
The money raised will be used to get her to Adelaide for the upcoming event and we will keep you posted with her results.
TBBC fully supports this champion athlete.
As soon as we heard of this benefit night we quickly organised a contribution to support her endeavours.
Many of our members also contributed with prizes and money to make the night a great success.
This morning members met at Carrington Bowling Club for a breakfast meeting where they received an update from the team at Hunter and NSW Business Chamber, were presented new member kits and had a general discussion about what's happening in the Throsby Basin area.

Young Street Update
As you know we held a meeting with members and concerned residents of Carrington in regards to the reconstruction of Young Street Carrington. The Throsby Basin Business Chamber on behalf of our members and the community have submitted a 15 page document to Newcastle City Council voicing the concerns raised. At this stage we have had no response back from council however, once we have a reply you will be updated. Thanks to everyone that attended the meeting, your support and comments were greatly appreciated , it is the old saying “ United we Stand”
Lots of great news for Newcastle recently, big announcements and successful events.
Mike Baird is very keen to showcase Newcastle as one of the best cities in the state and with the announcements of the cruise terminal project and the V8 super cars coming to town, Newcastle is set to shine.
Newcastle and the surrounding suburbs are on the move, as business owners, we need to be prepared to capture some of the revenue flowing into our city. As a chamber we have a unique opportunity to make our collective voice heard and bring better opportunities to the Throsby Basin area as the city evolves.
We would like to congratulate the Hamilton Business Chamber on another very successful China Festival. Well done to Nathan Errington and his team at Hamilton Business Chamber.
