POINT PARKING OPTIONS OFFSHORE COMMUNITY SURVEY
As part of the community consultation process, the Offshore Community
Associations distributed a survey on Church Point Parking Options to
all Offshore residents. The survey was conducted on-line via email to
all residents. A web link to background information was provided, plus
a link to the relevant section on Pittwater Council’s website.
On October 20, a Community Forum was held on Scotland Island to discuss
the Options. The survey commenced November 4, 2013 and closed November
The Options were:
Survey respondents were required to provide their name and address, in
confidence, to be confirmed by both resident databases for their vote
to be counted.
- Option 1 (CPPOM Ground Level)
- Options 2a (Deck with Lease)
- Options 2b (Deck without Lease)
- Option 3 (Church Point Friends)
- Pause and Reassess
Scrutineers from both Associations, with different views, were present
for the opening and collation of the survey. To protect confidentiality
only the two people responsible for maintaining the Offshore email
databases inspected names to ensure all responses were legitimate.
Individuals from the same household were each able to complete the
survey and the results show both individual and household responses.
Where two or more people from the same household submitted a response
with different choices (29 in total), these were not counted in the
main household count, but counted in the total individual responses.
393 individual responses were received from 281 households. This is
approximately 60% of all Offshore households that reside on a full-time
basis (Scotland Island 357 households and Western Foreshores 176
households - assuming a full-time occupancy rate of 90%). There were a
total of 335 comments made.
The survey conducted in April, 2012 showed approximately a 50:50 split
between the Ground Level Option verses the Deck Option. In this latest
survey, the balance has shifted significantly in favour of the Deck
Option. The combined Offshore Community household support is now 65.5%
with 71.2% support from Scotland Island.
There are varying views within the Offshore community. SIRA has
publically stated on many occasions that once our community had made a
clear majority decision, we would advocate for that choice.

We thank everyone who took the time to participate in the survey.
The Council meeting on December 2 will review recommendations in the
report from Council staff and make a decision.
SIRA and WPCA will again hire a bus to take residents to and from
