Who are we?

Friends of Ku-ring-ga Environment (FOKE) is a community group with membership drawn from across Ku-ring-gai, opposing inappropriate and unsympathetic overdevelopment within Ku-ring-gai, and defending and promoting the cultural and natural heritage of Ku-ring-gai.

FOKE is not anti-development.  We work on behalf of residents and friends for the maintenance of Ku-ring-gai’s heritage and the enhancement of the existing traditional character and amenity of its environment, both built and natural.

Important Dates

The Draft Ku-ring-gai Housing Strategy is on Public Exhibition until 8 May.

The Housing Strategy will determine the way our suburbs will be able to incorporate additional dwellings as required by the Greater Sydney Commission.

Your views on how this Housing Strategy will affect you and your area need to be communicated to your councillors. Please review the Draft Housing Strategy papers at Draft_Ku-ring-gai_Housing_Strategy_to_2036

To assist you in preparing a submission, please see the Letter to Ku-ring-gai residents from FOKE plus a Guideline for Draft Housing Strategy submission for some key points or ideas.

Postponement of AGM.

Due to Covid-19 and the new social distancing regulations we are unable to hold a meeting on the 20th May, as detailed in our March newsletter. We have requested and received approval from the Department of Fair Trading for a six month extension. We will be in contact with members with regard to a new date or advice as the situation develops.
