In order to achieve its aims, it has been necessary on occasion to form sub-committees of the PCA, comprised of an Executive Committee Member and General Members with a particular interest and/or skill in a relevant area. Planning is an issue that is frequently of concern to members, and most recently, the 49 Newcombe St proposal caused a great deal of interest and activity.

The establishment of a Community Hub is something dear to the hearts of many PCA members and the PCA contributed to a recent Community Facilities Scoping Study conducted by the City of Greater Geelong Council. You can read the results of that Scoping Study here, but as yet there has been no further commitment by the Council to either providing a purpose-built facility or engaging in improvements to current Portarlington facilities such as Parks Hall.
