Pittwater Council Sustainability Award
Greg Roberts -
Roberts has recently received an award for the category ‘Sustainability
in Design’, announced at the special dinner organised by Pittwater
Council for participating householders. The presentation was
by Mayor Harvey Rose.
The winner of the “Single Residential
Dwelling – New” category was Graeme Jessup and Barbara Elkan with their
superbly designed new home in Mona Vale. The 1.4 kW solar PV
system provides 60% of their annual electricity use, and revenue from
the sale of exported electricity will more than offset the cost of
imported electricity now that the new state government gross feed-in
tariff of 60c/kWh has started this year.

over 90% of their water needs over the last two years (since piping in
the concrete floor slab in the living area, and solar PV panels provide
power for the heat pump. A gas boosted solar hot water system
provides all their hot water in the summer and about half their hot
water needs in the winter. Plantation grown shadowline
eco-cladding and spotted gum hardwood panels are used for external
walls, and the garden is landscaped with indigenous native plants.
is an excellent example of the thrust of the Pittwater 2020 Strategic
Plan, as developed over 5 years by Council and the Pittwater community
– to have homeowners in Pittwater move towards a significant level of
Sustainability, for renovations, new houses and landscaping.
key points of Greg’s PV installation design included the ability to
adjust the angle of the panels from Summer to Winter to maximise their
efficiency. Also to act as a sunshade to control the internal
temperature of the boat shed.
Further, the installation was
planned to work with the rectangular window shapes of well-known
architect Ken Woolley’s design of the house (see photo)

A Short History of Sandstone
(and how to not
Do you have
some sandstone at your place?
Are you unsure
of the best way to use it?
Not sure of the
best way to design for sandstone?
Here's some of
Damian's tips for designing and building with stone.
Sydney is built on stone, mega-tonnes of sandstone. Nowhere is this
more visible than Pittwater.
from trees, dirt and water what else is there? Sandstone peppers our
hillsides, structures our cliffs, stubs our toes and silts our beaches.
This place is literally made of the stuff. It is natural then that many
of us choose to use sandstone in our homes, gardens and in our personal
expressions to the world.
Is this an over-statement? What do we use
as a material to say something in public? These days it's either an
aluminium sign or a sculpture - in sandstone. So many parks in
Pittwater now proudly exhibit sandstone images of indigenous locals,
historic British explorers, fauna or flora.
But why is it that we
love sandstone so much? Certainly it's natural. It's
semi-permanent. And it has a variety of interesting colours, textures
and shapes. But most of all, I believe it's because it's here. It's
part of our place, our memory. It is so deep in our expectation it may
just own us.
I first worked with sandstone over three decades
ago when I was at school. I loved it then. And now, as a stonemason I
love it still, and curse it sometimes too. Relating with one material
on a daily basis is a little like marriage. It is regularly humbling,
occasionally frustrating but always 'interesting'. Or it should be. But
I digress. Constant contact with this beautiful material sharpens the
senses towards what are the best and "less than best" uses for it.
like my wife, stone is very forgiving. After the choice is made to
include sandstone in the first place, comes our choices of how to use
(or abuse) it. Now while stone may forgive many of our ignorances, we
may not forgive ourselves when, with hindsight, we look back at what we
'felt sure' would be its best use.
Many an architect, sculptor
or designer looks back at his or her early work and shudders. "It
seemed like a great idea at the time". Full of imaginative bliss and
practical ignorance, the nieve march in - to learn design lessons the
Here's a few things about the use of sandstone that I've learnt - some
of it the hard way.
"It is what
quip from a now departed stonemason mate of mine is wiser than it first
looks. Sandstone has certain qualities and limitations and these must
be respected before deciding what you can ask it to do for you.
Sandstone is a porous , sedimentary stone, strong in compression but
weak in tension. It suits many applications such as walls, paths and
sculpture. But equally it is unsuitable for others such as kitchen
benches and bathroom tiling.
Tip : Before you
"tell" the stone anything - ask what it can do for you.
(and not against) sandstone"
to above - let the stone inform you. If you have a pile of 'ugly' rocks
and a desire for a 'pretty' wall, the two thoughts may not be related.
Let the shape of the stones inform what you do with them. Pick a few
stones and try to build a wall with them. If they don't form the wall
you want without excessive effort* , then sell the lot - or easier,
give them away. Then you are free to buy , process and build the stone
wall (or path) that you really want. * More than an hour per stone is
way too much effort - stonemasons spend only minutes processing and
building some stones.
Tip : It is possible
to fashion 'a silk purse out of a sow's ear' but it is silly to pay the
pig twice the price of silk.
necessarily get an 'old-stone' look by just finding and building with
some 'old stone"
essential thing in creating the look of a particular period or age of
stone is - appropriate craft. It is not the 'old' colour that is most
important. It is the matching of shape, texture and the methods to get
these, that creates a certain age or period effect. Often people who
say they want 'old" stone really mean that they don't want new, clean,
thin, sawn stone. This is definition by a negative. The reality is that
the shaping craft and tools employed on a stone affects its look and
'feel' much more than the year it was quarried out of the ground.
Consider the ideal shape and texture more than the colour or 'age' of
stone. (All stone is the same age, i.e. a heck of a lot older
any of us)
'sandstone' is not east-coast Australian sandstone"
market is awash with some imported stones. But did you know that
Australia has some of the most beautiful sandstone varieties in the
world? Heritage grade Pyrmont (Sydney) and Guinea Gold (Central Coast)
are two varieties that even European-born stonemasons appreciate for
their superior quality.
There are quality imports as well but they
don't necessarily "go with" our local sandstone. And the vast majority
of imported stones are cut thinly for sink benches, pavers or tiling.
You can't make a solid wall out of tiles.
Be careful choosing imported stones for local applications. It has
uses. I have some in my home. But it has to be used carefully
especially on external walls or in gardens.
If you cannot
afford 'real' stone doesn't it make sense to use reconstituted,
less I say here the better. We use reconstituted "stone" in the repair
of some stones and it is true that it can look very realistic - but a
whole wall of it? Would you spend a working day planting a garden out
with some beautiful, very realistic, plastic palms?
If stone is too expensive -rendered brick is cheaper. And paling fences
are cheaper than brick ones. All these choices are legitimate.
some stone tiles onto a brick wall will make it look like a
solid stone wall, won't it?"
until the eye reaches the corner and the 75mm, 50mm or 30mm thin tile
edge is exposed. Then it will look like what it is - a wall with some
skinny bits of stone "tacked on". There are ways to clad walls to look
solid but they require special skills and equipment (and some money).
Tip : If you want a
cladding detail that makes your wall really look "solid" (even when it
isn't), best consult a stone craftsman.
it takes to build you have to look at it a lot longer"
thing my clients often comment on is "how hard" and "how long"
stonemasonry takes. "There's a lot in it isn't there?" they say, before
they remember "You told us that, didn't you?"
A hastily detailed stone wall stays that way for a long time. And it
still costs money. Think about spending a little
more to get the wall you really want. Or, if the budget can't stretch,
reduce the area of wall. Stone is heavy to dismantle as it is
assemble. So you probably won't replace it once you've built it. So
build it to like it! And if a stone wall is off budget
rendered brick one with a quality stone capping detail. (Again, don't
get cheap with the stone cap!)
Tip : Economize on quantity not
quality. Better to craft a small wall well than a big wall cheap.
is a heavy, sometimes difficult and often a time-consuming craft. But
it is uniquely satisfying for the professional, the handy person and
home-owners alike. But especially for the owners. They can see, admire
and touch it every day.
I have written in the hope that these owners might be saved unnecessary
concern or expense.

Australia Day Award Winners Announced
The winners of the 2010 Pittwater Australia Day Awards were announced
at Australia Day celebrations at Bert Payne Reserve, Newport Beach.
This year there were five award categories under which nominees were
selected; the Senior Citizen of the Year, Citizen of the Year, Young
Citizen of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year and Community Event of
The awards were presented by Pittwater’s Australia Day Ambassador,
Elaine Henry OAM, CEO of The Smith Family.
Bob and Robin
Head were the recipients of the Senior Citizens of the
Year. They have been heavily involved in working voluntarily for the
Palm Beach Golf Club for many years, including voluntary positions at
Avalon Surf Life Saving Club as well as meals on wheels. This dynamic
duo first came to Palm Beach Golf Club when its financial position was
in a fairly dire state. The couple worked extraordinary hours in a
voluntary capacity to turn things around. With their drive and hard
work the club now employs extra staff and a General Manager. Their
efforts contributed to saving a golf club that is an integral part of
Mona Vale resident Jo
Brigden-Jones has been recognised as Pittwater’s
Sportsperson of the Year. Jo has already made her mark on the
international kayaking scene. A resident of Mona Vale she returned from
her first Senior World Championship with a fifth in the K4 relay, 6th
in the K4 200m, 8th in the premier event K1 500m and 7th in the K1
1000m. It is understood that no other Australian female has ever
qualified for four finals at their maiden appearance at the world
titles. This talented sportswoman looks like she is well on her way to
competing in the London Olympics with medals in her sights.
Pittwater Young Citizen of the Year is Avalon’s Charlie Westhoff.
Charlie has been performing since he was three years old and is an
accomplished violinist and singer. He has performed at the Sydney Opera
House, the Conservatorium of Music, the University of NSW and the
Sydney Entertainment Centre. He was also one of the stars of the 2008
School Spectacular and is a member of the Northern Beaches Youth
Orchestra. Charlie was Avalon Primary’s school captain in 2008 and won
a music scholarship to the Shore School where he is now a student. His
most recent performance was in front of the NSW Governor Professor
Marie Bashir during her recent visit to Pittwater.
The Pittwater Community Event of the Year was awarded to the North
Narrabeen learn-to-swim program. Staffed entirely by volunteers, the
program has operated for close to 45 years at North Narrabeen rock
pool. Through the driving force of this group of dedicated volunteers
the program has operated continuously during this time, teaching
pre-schoolers and other children the fundamentals of swimming in an
ocean rock pool. All instructors have obtained accreditation on a
voluntary basis, paying for their own tuition and insurance. The
learn-to-swim instructors volunteer their services every Saturday
morning from November to March at the rock pool come rain or shine!
Currently there are 94 registered children with the program.
The standard of nominations received for Pittwater Citizen of the Year
was exceptionally high. As a consequence two winners received an award,
namely Shane Withington and Gordon Lang.
Withington received his award for leadership of a campaign
to save Currawong from inappropriate development. Shane has been the
leader and key figure of this campaign for 15 years. He has spent
literally thousands of hours lobbying, persuading, negotiating and
raising awareness to secure the protection of Currawong. His efforts
have been unrelenting. So much so, that his daughter once said fondly
that there are four people in the family namely, mother, father,
daughter and Currawong! Though the future of Currawong is still to be
finally decided, the heritage listing of the site will ensure that any
development will be limited and in line with the historic and
environmental values of the site.
Joint winner of Pittwater’s Citizen of the Year is Gordon Lang. Gordon
received the award for services to surf life saving on the northern
beaches for over 40 years. An active patroller for many years, he
became President of Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club. He then moved to
Surf Life Saving Sydney Northern Beaches as a board member and
President of this important organisation. Both these positions are
voluntary. Gordon has been organising and running part of The Spastic
Centre’s 20/Twenty Challenge Fundraiser since 2006. He averages between
20 to 40 hours a week in unpaid duties on surf life saving and
During the presentation on Australia Day Mayor Harvey Rose extended his
thanks to the individuals involved for their contribution to the
Pittwater community. “I’m extremely proud of these great people whose
involvement makes a difference to so many,” he said.

Public Meeting on Draft Enforcement
Pittwater Council will hold a public meeting in early February to
discuss its new enforcement policy.
draft Compliance, Enforcement and Orders Policy was on exhibition
during November last year for public comment. The policy aims to make
the enforcement process consistent and transparent and deals with the
Council’s responsibilities and processes for enforcing legislation on
swimming pools, dangerous dogs, development controls, parking and
environmental pollution, among others.
The Council’s General
Manager Mark Ferguson said the Council had decided to revise its policy
to assist officers in making decisions on whether to issue a fine or
other infringement notice.
“The policy also sets out a framework for officers to respond to
complaints from the public,” he said.
the policy, ‘urgent or life-threatening’ matters such as unsafe
buildings, food poisoning as a result of contaminated food sold to the
public, dog attacks, evidence of asbestos on public or private land,
abandoned vehicles in an unsafe position and pollution spills would be
investigated urgently and where possible on the day they are notified
to the Council.
‘General complaints’ such as alleged unlawful
building work, roaming dogs, noise complaints and abandoned vehicles
would be investigated within 10-15 days and ‘nuisance matters’ such as
overgrown land would be investigated following a complaint within 15 to
20 working days.
Mr Ferguson said responding to complaints was
an important aspect of the Council’s enforcement process, but
establishing the seriousness of the complaint would assist officers
such as rangers in managing their workloads.
being 125 square kilometres in size, our rangers and other compliance
officers have a lot of ground to cover,” Mr Ferguson said.
public meeting will be held at Newport Community Centre on Wednesday 3
February between 6pm and 7.30pm. After a presentation on the new policy
Council officers will be available to take questions from the public.
The draft policy can be viewed on the Council’s website at http://www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/council/documents_on_ex
consultation with the public a final version of the policy will be
presented to the Council for consideration by March.

Sempre Con Te
(Always with you)
separation and reunion of Italian women from the Northern
Beaches of Sydney (1920 – 1970)
Te poignantly expresses the pain of the separation and the joy of the
reunion…Concetta Cirigliano Perna
Con Te (Always with you) is a new publication that tells the
fascinating and very personal stories of Italian women who migrated to
Sydney’s Northern beaches during the early 20th
publication documents a period between 1920 and 1970 where much of the
migration to Sydney from Italy was by ‘chain migration’. When someone
became successfully established in Australia they would nominate other
family members of their home town to come out. During this time, more
than 1,000 women migrated to the Northern Beaches through this
Sempre Con Te reveals the stories of nine of
these women, all from the harsh rural area of Calabria, who came to
settle in the Northern Beaches suburbs of Dee Why, Beacon Hill,
Brookvale and Narrabeen.
Through family mementoes,
photographs and treasured objects, their stories describe the pain of
separation, the bewilderment of settling in a different country, the
struggle to set up a new life (often with a husband they had not met
before) and the joy of being reunited with family and friends in the
years that followed.
For more than eighty years,
Italians who have settled on the Northern Beaches have made a wonderful
contribution to the development of the area. The majority came with the
intention of staying for a few years, making some money and returning
home. When they realised that life in Australia had a great deal to
offer they began to put down roots. With hard work and good fortune
they were free to enjoy life to the fullest, and have made many
positive contributions to the Northern Beaches community.
Con Te is the result of five years of work by a group of women from the
Northern Beaches Italian Community and is published in partnership with
the Powerhouse Museum’s New South Wales Migration Heritage Centre.

I have just recently had to obtain insurance for our commuter boat, so
I thought I would share my experience.
following companies do not offer insurance for commuter boats: NRMA,

it’s boat insurance via Whitworths), GIO (GIO used to but stopped about
a year ago).
The only companies that I could find that would are
CGU & AON (AON is underwritten by CGU). Both offer the same
premiums, but AON will give you a no claim discount if you’ve held boat
insurance in the past, whereas CGU will only do this if the boat
insurance has been held continuously up until you obtain a policy with
