The object of the Royalla Community Association is to:

  1. Foster and promote community spirit, cooperation and activities among residents of the Royalla area, including assisting in the provision of community facilities.
  2. Represent the interests of the Royalla community, and support community groups that are active in the Royalla area.
  3. Strengthen local community capacity through sponsoring, coordinating and/or assisting community activities and projects, including fund-raising activities to create, develop or enhance community facilities and when feasible to support the activities of other community groups.
  4. Represent members in consultation with Queanbeyan and Palerang Councils, and the ACT government,  (including participation in Palerang Council’s Royalla Common Management Section 355 Committee) and with other community groups and organisations.
  5. Provide a forum to discuss major issues affecting the Royalla community and the development of collaborative strategies to address these challenges.
