Prince Henry at Little Bay is steeped in rich history, architectural legacy and geological significance. The natural beauty of the rugged coastline, the healthy environment, and the finely tuned balance between old and new each contribute to making Prince Henry a unique place to live.
The site comprises 85 hectares, bounded by Harvey Street, Jennifer Street, Anzac Parade and the new Little Bay Cove residential community under development to the north, and the Coast Golf Course to the east. Just 20 per cent of the Prince Henry site has been developed, with the remainder retained in public ownership – preserved as parks, bushland and walking areas, all designed to protect endangered native plant species.
Residential options include detached houses, townhouses, apartment blocks and aged care facilities. In addition, there are a number of community groups based on site including, among others, the Prince Henry Hospital Trained Nurses' Association, the Coast Centre, the Aboriginal Health College, and Surf Life Saving Australia.
The village style retail strip is home to a supermarket, cafes, a medical practice, a dentist, a real estate agent, and other services.
Public access to the beach and golf course ensures everyone, not just residents and community groups, can enjoy the wonders of this beautiful coastal community.
Prince Henry Community Website
The Prince Henry Community Website and newsletter are currently community initiatives run by Susan Graham, t/as Bay Creative Communications, and volunteers. The website is funded entirely by sponsors. Both the website and newsletter are currently unrelated to the Prince Henry Community Association in its legally appointed capacity.
However, there are changes afoot. At the Prince Henry Community Association’s AGM in August 2020, the owners voted in favour of the Community Association taking ownership and responsibility for operating the Prince Henry Community Website and quarterly newsletter.
A website subcommittee has been appointed and a tender process to appoint a web developer to revamp and update the website will be undertaken in the next little while. In the mean time, the current website design and content will remain as is, as will the quarterly newsletter design and distribution.
Information pertaining to the CA in the newsletter, under the heading Community Association, and in the Prince Henry Community Association web section are facts that have been authorised for publication by CA Executive Committee members and the CA's managing agent. All other information in the newsletter and on the website has been contributed by various members of the community or extracted from Minutes of EC meetings.
The website was created initially as an information portal for owners and residents. Since going live in November 2012, it has grown to become more news orientated (more work for us but lots of fun!), and our subscriber base is growing slowly but surely. Our audience comprises, in the main, Prince Henry owners and residents, managing agents of the various apartment blocks and neighbourhood associations here at Prince Henry, local politicians and government departments, neighbouring businesses and other interested parties.
Each quarter we email a newsletter to our subscriber base. Sponsors' logos appear in every issue, and each sponsor may provide an update on their business activities for inclusion in the newsletter. You can check out previous E-newsletters on the Community news web page.
