The Balingup Progress Association was established in 1979 to fight the issue of planting pines on former farming land. The Association enjoyed a major victory when they negotiated with CALM to have land vested in the Balingup Community for the development of the Golden Valley Tree Park.
The Association has now evolved into a community group of interested residents, meeting monthly to discuss any proposals affecting the town. It is a dynamic community forum enabling residents to participate in the direction and planning of the Balingup community. New residents are very welcome.
The Balingup Progress Association was instrumental in developing the annual Medieval Carnivale and the Small Farm Field Day events, and provides them with public liability and rain insurance.
