The year that was…2020

It’s hard to believe what has taken place in 2020, a year which won’t be forgotten in a hurry! From terrible bushfires to wild floods, and of course the damaging worldwide pandemic COVID-19, these challenging times seem to have brought Redbank residents even closer to each other, and together we have made the best out of a difficult year.

Whilst it’s easy to get caught up in all the negative events that are taking place, Redbank Communities has been quietly notching up notable highlights throughout the year which has given our team, contractors and our homeowners reasons to celebrate.

With our developer hat on, we have successfully obtained Development Approvals (DA) for the next 279 residential lots and soon to commence construction of the Redbank Village Centre. Our childcare center operator has also received a DA and is hoping to start construction in the new year.

Our team launched the Redbank Display Village which we feel is unique and second to none in Sydney and our exclusive selling agent Keyline Property Group had a bumper year in sales which was not expected given the circumstances.
Earlier in the year Redbank Communities contributed $1.885 million to the North Richmond Community Centre which will see the existing community facility upgraded and fulfil our commitment to improved local infrastructure for the community.

Although COVID-19 threw a massive curveball at our community events, we were lucky enough to squeeze in a few events throughout the year including our Anzac Day Driveway Dawn Parade, The Summer Aqua Party, Redbank Golf Day, Go Kart Championship, The Camping Trip and The Annual Redbank Garden Competition. On top of these, this year our community team created a successful digital program to keep everyone in a positive mindset, entertained, and connected during the year with many online activities and competition. To no surprise, our residents embraced this to the fullest in a year with many highlights. The team also saw the formation of a few vital community groups including Redbank Camping Crew, North Richmond Bush Care Club, Redbank North Richmond Mums, North Richmond Pets and Redbank Over 55s Social Club.

It’s been heart-warming to see our wonderful homeowners not only support each other within our community, but also support a myriad of charities and organisations in the wider community.
This year has seen us discover a new way of living that is more communal, friendlier and allows space to breathe. If there is one common trait that has marked Australians forever, it is the persistent quest for lifestyle. A shift back to suburban living has been the unintended consequence of COVID-19 that might be here to stay.

Most importantly, we would like to thank our homeowners for the support you give Redbank and everything we try and achieve together. All of us here at Redbank Communities would like to wish you and your loved ones our warmest wishes this Christmas. From our entire Redbank team, we want to thank you for being a part of our journey this year and let’s all look forward to a better 2021.
