Red Hill Regeneration Group Inc. Rules

The Red Hill Regeneration Group was Incorporated on 24 October 1994, with eight Purposes and Objectives, listed below

The Associations Incorporations Act says that associations can adopt, or adapt, the Model Rules in the Associations Incorporation Regulation 1991. The Model Rules (which are the basics of any association constitution) have been adopted mainly to avoid unnecessary bureaucracy. The Model Rules can be found at Part 3 Section 15 of the Associations Incorporation Regulations 1991.

Amendments to the Rules were proposed, and adopted at the 1 November 2020 AGM.  The 2020 Rules can be accessed here.

    1. To develop awareness in the community of the value of local native vegetation and wildlife in the Red Hill reserve;

    3. To restore and improve the condition of degraded land within the reserve through measures including revegetation;
    4. To increase the local population of the endangered daisy Rutidosis leptorhynchoides;
    5. To involve citizens and community groups at all levels in planning and maintaining revegetation programs within the reserve;
    6. To carry out revegetation activities which are consistent with the future ecological and recreational needs of the community;
    7. To enhance the practical and theoretical skills of the community pertaining to the establishment, protection, planning and maintenance of vegetation; and
