comments on proposals for the rejuvenation of Leahvera and Cargo Wharf
SIRAC Parks and Reserves Working Group held a Community Forum at Cargo
Reserve on September 24th. The Forum was attended by 25
A series of proposals were discussed with a view to improving the cargo
beach area, access to the new commuter pontoon, the Leahvera reserve
area and the organisation of parking and loading areas.
The discussion led to some general agreement for 10 areas of action.
These are summarised in a set of meeting notes and an annotated sketch
plan of the area. (These are available at HERE (PDF
The Working Group is now seeking any further comments/suggestions in
order to prepare a proposal to Council for their support/endorsement.
Please forward any comments to
Sue Dickson email@example.com
Tim Turpin firstname.lastname@example.org
by Wednesday October 27th.
Members of the
Pittwater Community are invited to view plans, reports and a model of
proposed car parking at Church Point.
Through the generosity of
the owner, the top room of the Waterfront Store at Church Point
(accessible from Thomas Stephens Reserve) will be open from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 19th October.
Building 40-60 extra car spaces will not solve the parking problem at
Church Point, but it can blight its beauty forever.
A committed group of on and offshore residents and design
professionals, known as Church Point Friends, have come together
following concerns about the character of Church Point being at threat
of overdevelopment. This group includes members from our local on
and offshore community associations.
We are holding this information day to encourage everyone to see what
options have been considered and to access reports provided to
date. A model has been made that has interchangeable pieces to
see the different schemes. Members of Church Point Friends will
be there to assist you in reviewing the documents.
We support the benefits of additional parking integrated with better
management of parking demand. Church Point Friends have developed
a low key, lower cost option which, we believe, provides a better
waterfront public amenity whilst providing additional car parking.
Pittwater Council has indicated that a Community Meeting on Church
Point will be arranged in the near future, prior to going to Council in
November. We urge you to drop in and familiarise yourself with
The upper deck of the Waterfront store is a wonderful vantage point to
view the affected area.
There will be an opportunity to provide comments, which will be
forwarded to Council.

Greetings Wine Lovers
We have the tasting notes
for our next wine tasting on Sunday October 20th,
2013, 3 - 5pm.
As promised, a good sparkling in time for Christmas and many of our old
favourites. I have been promised a sparkling day to match the wine and
would love your company. I know many of you have probably never
travelled so far west, not even on your annual holiday, but now is the
chance. The transportation costs are very low due to, err, the
Australian dollar and a journey either by private vessel or ferry will
add to your wine tasting experience. Plenty of parking on the jetty
with the Aussie flag flying.
Please remember to bring
along your own tasting glass, tasting notes and a platter of nibbles as
Where: Paul Purvis'
sunny home, third jetty on the south side of Elvina Bay
If coming by ferry, alight at Elvina South, head east on the fire trail
until you smell the wine...
If you are new to our totally not-for-profit wind syndicate it is lots
of fun. Not only a chance to have a taste of fine wines but also the
opportunity to meet your neighbours.
Date: October 20th 2013 from 3pm.
