Social Cohesion


We believe that as a community we thrive best and leave no one behind when we work together. We attach great importance to involving community members in issues of consequence to the Town and its residents. We invest in establishing connections and nurturing liaisons with other groups and all members of the community.


GABC envisages a community where no one is homeless, where neighbours know, respect, and communicate with each other in a relaxed rural/urban setting, where we have built pleasing and friendly public spaces, and where we all keep our neighbourhoods healthy, safe, and livable.


We undertake to:

  • encourage development or redevelopment that ensures a diversity of housing and building forms, including affordable housing
  • find ways to celebrate the beauty of our community and its people and to create a community that residents are proud to belong to
  • encourage and promote community-based activities which inform and celebrate the Town.
