DBRA has existed since the early 1990s. We are led by residents and lobby for the interests of residents.
In 2009 we were part of the massively successful fight against high rise in Double Bay to stop two 14 storey towers being built in Double Bay.
We spent many years in negotiation with Council on the Kiaora Lands development to minimise impacts for residents while still helping to revitalise Double Bay.
We have recently lobbied and been successful in establishing a clearway for New South Head road from Rushcutters Bay Park which has had massive positive impacts on traffic flow on New South Head Road.
We also were instrumental in ensuring Kiaora Lane is safe for children by lobbying Council to have vehicles stopped from entering at 9am.
Our members are active on the local Safety Committee which liaises with local Police and Council, and are also on the Double Bay Working Party, a collaboration of residents, Council and business, to ensure an optimal future for Double Bay.
