Island Traffic Management Plans
the Forum held by Pittwater Council on Sunday in the Community Hall,
Scotland Island, below are the links to the proposed Traffic Management
Plans (TMPs) discussed and to the survey for comment.
The submission period is open for six (6) weeks to allow residents to
review both proposals and to comment.
Letters will also be going out to all property owners with a request
that they respond as to whether they support one, both or neither of
the two proposed TMPs, using the included questionnaire (a condensed
version of questionnaire on Council’s web site).
The questionnaires should be returned to Council in the reply paid
envelope supplied, as only responses by property owners will be
considered when assessing the level of support for the proposed Road
Closure (traffic) TMP that may directly impact their properties.
All comments received by Council in respect to both TMPs will be
considered and owners of properties are encouraged to also complete the
full questionnaire (includes questions relating to demographics,
vehicle use and consultation feedback) on Council’s web site

Planning Proposal Refused
The Director-General of the NSW Department of Planning &
Infrastructure has supported a recommendation by the Joint Regional
Planning Panel (JRPP) to refuse a planning proposal submitted by the
Meriton Group in Warriewood.
The planning proposal was for a rezoning of Meriton-owned land in
McPherson Street and Warriewood Road Warriewood. It proposed a
development of more than double the density agreed by the Strategic
Review of undeveloped land in the Warriewood Valley.
The Warriewood Strategic Review was jointly conducted by Pittwater
Council and the NSW Department of Planning & Infrastructure in
2011. After an 18-month consultation period with the local community, a
new development standard of 32 dwellings per hectare was agreed upon
and adopted by the Council.
The Meriton proposal for the McPherson Street and Warriewood Road sites
put forward a dwelling density of over 90 dwellings a hectare.
The Director-General Sam Haddad wrote to the Council this week advising
them of that he had decided the proposal should not proceed to a
‘gateway review’. The gateway review process is where a planning
proposal is determined by the Minister and the NSW Department of
Planning & Infrastructure instead of the local council.
General Manager Mark Ferguson said the decision underlined the
importance of consistency and certainty for future development in
“We are pleased that the Department has upheld the JRPP’s view that
this development – coming less than 12 months after the Warriewood
Strategic Review had been adopted – was inappropriate and an
over development of the site.”
Mr Ferguson said the decision sent a clear message to developers that
planning standards jointly agreed by the NSW Department of Planning
& Infrastructure and the Council would be supported in the future.
