About Us

Interested in the future of Tecoma? Would you like to help with improving life in the Hills? Need help or advice pertaining to a development proposal?


Please contact our Membership Secretary

The Tecoma Village Action Group comprises residents living in the area of Tecoma who wish to contribute to the growth of and preservation of the characteristics of our township that draw people to live in this wonderful area of the Dandenong Ranges.


TVAG is a member of the Shire of Yarra Ranges Townships Groups Network and as such represents Tecoma to the Shire of Yarra Ranges. Through this link we are able to apply to Council for funding of Community Projects and be instrumental in developing “Tecoma’s Future”.


TVAG is an Incorporated Association that supports other organisations and events in the region of Tecoma, such as The Hills Food Frontier (FLAME Festival, Community Garden Pathway); Destination Tecoma (see below), and art organisations such as the Tiffaney Bishop Collective and FATSpace.


TVAG is often contacted by residents with concerns about development issues. Through its contacts and experience, TVAG has been able to draw these concerns to the wider community and provide information and support for these concerns. TVAG has supported residents in their concerns all the way to Council and VCAT.


TVAG is an incorporated association of volunteers, members of the community who volunteer their time and experience to represent Tecoma. To be truly representative though, TVAG requires your support through membership and contribution to community discussions.   

TVAG - Who are we?

Just an update on the Yarra Ranges BIG Futures program.

THE GOOD NEWS

This week (2nd week of May), students in our BIG Futures school mentoring program will meet the 30 fantastic mentors who have come into the program .

HOWEVER

Some young people will be disappointed .

We need another  20   community people to put their hand up in the next couple of weeks to fulfill our promise to the schools.


The schools where we have the least number of mentors are Upwey High and Mater Christi College


Please spread the word


This is such a great opportunity to make the difference in the life of a young person

Big Futures - Update

In a letter to residents in Rochsleigh Ave, Tecoma, the State Minister for Health, the Hon. Jill Hennessy, MP, has stated “the Andrews Labor Government has determined that the ambulance station will not be constructed in Rochsleigh Avenue and has commenced seeking an alternative site in the Belgrave area”.


This is great news for the residents of Rochsleigh Avenue but also for everyone in the service area provided for by the Belgrave Ambulance station. This decision means that ambulances are less likely to be called away to service Knox and other more westerly areas and will be better able to access Monbulk and beyond in an emergency, as they will not have to traverse Belgrave shopping centre.

Ambulance Victoria looking elsewhere
