Bike Lockers At Church Point
am investigating the possibility of getting a bicycle locker installed
at Church Point. The State Government has a scheme where they will
install a locker and users can hire a spot for approximately $50 for
three months. I would like to get an idea of how many island
residents would be interested in hiring a lockers so I can put a
proposal together and submit it to the minister of transport.
Please could you resister you interest by email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
of a secure bicycle locker as your own priority parking. Even better,
your locker helps protect your bike, helmet and clothing from theft and
vandalism. Something desperately lacking from the Church Point area.

over Development Proposal
Preservation Trust Takes a Stand
Have you done anything yet to oppose this outrageous proposal to
overdevelop the Warriewood Valley?
will have read about it in the Manly Daily and be aware it is a huge
development taken out of the hands of Pittwater Council and completely
inconsistent with orderly planning principles. The Avalon Preservation
Association believes it has potential for serious environmental damage
in Warriewood and the wider Pittwater area if this development goes
ahead, setting a precedent for similar projects.

Although the Avalon Preservation Association is apolitical we recommend
you attend this public meeting organised by The Greens for this coming
Saturday June 12
Vale Memorial Hall
12 June 2010, 11:30 am to 1:30 pm
Northern Beaches Greens has organised a public meeting to oppose the
over-development of land adjoining the Warriewood Wetlands.
In the planning application, the description includes:
residential apartment buildings of 3 and 5 storeys in height providing
a total of 600 units with associated landscaping, a gymnasium and
swimming pools, and internal road network of public and private roads;
The Greens oppose the development for, at least, the following reasons:
* Existing infrastructure (sewerage,
roads, drainage etc) is inadequate
* The scale of the development is
inappropriate for the site
* The development threatens the adjacent
* The site is flood-prone and will be
threatened by sea level rise
* The site is too close to the
Warriewood Sewage Treatment Plant
will be able to sign a petition, and will be invited to send letters of
objection to the appropriate planning authorities.
Speakers will include:
2. Sign the
petition arranged by Pittwater Council at the libraries
