DURACK (Inala 1)
The Durack Neighbourhood Watch was established in 1989 and covers the area bordered by Glenala Road (north), Rosemary Street/Sycamore Street (west), Inala Avenue (south), and Blunder Road/King Avenue (east), Durack and consists of 8 separate zones, each of which has a zone coordinator who can be contacted by residents who wish to discuss local issues but cannot attend meetings. Approximately 1200 homes are in the watch area which makes it quite a large watch. Major entrances to the watch area are identified by NHWQ signs, with smaller signs on each street sign in the watch area. It is a culturally diverse community with residents from a number of countries now calling Durack “home”.
The watch produces a newsletter every two months and meets, also each second month, at the Durack/Inala Bowls Club in Bowhill Road, Durack. The watch has its own website (http://www.durackneighbourhoodwatch.org/), an email address ([email protected]) and a NHWQ blog (http://durack.nhwq.org/), all of which are designed to keep residents informed. Watch members participate in the Clean Up Australia event each year and hold community events from time to time. Graffiti reduction is a target of the watch, with graffiti being removed as quickly as possible.
Durack NHW exists to help in keeping the local community safe and, as far as possible, crime free – the watch is here for the residents.
