for 2199 Pittwater Road, Church Point (Quarter Sessions)
Council has received a draft Planning Proposal relevant to two
properties known as 2199 Pittwater Road, Church Point (Lots 15 and 15A
of DP 10583).
Full details available HERE at Pittwater Council website.
The draft Planning Proposal intends to amend the Pittwater Local
Environmental Plan (LEP) by rezoning the lots from 6(a) (Existing
Recreation “A”) to 2(a) (Residential “A”). The draft Planning Proposal
also seeks to reclassify the subject lots from ‘Community’ to
‘Operational’ under the Local Government Act 1993.
As the subject properties are owned by Pittwater Council, urban
planning consultants, MB Town Planning, have been appointed to
independently assess the draft Planning Proposal.
Submissions should be in
writing and addressed to the General Manager by 5:00pm, Friday 2
May 2014 to:
Mail - Pittwater
Council, PO Box 882, Mona Vale, NSW 1660

Event Manager, Nikki Griffith said cooking demonstrations will start
from 11am with Jane Grover, then Brian Lizotte and Rebecca Jones from
the Sustain Me team, who’ll show you how to love your leftovers!
Mayor Jacqui Townsend praised the format of the event, saying it not
only profiled local companies and suppliers, but promoted local
volunteer organisations and sustainable living.
“Sustainability Lane offers the popular native plant giveaway for
Pittwater residents, eco-living stalls, a exhibit by the Coastal
Environment Centre and a native animal display,” added Cr Townsend.
“Pittwater Council’s Compliance staff will be available at
Sustainability Lane, ready to answer all building queries or questions
about your pool or spa fence.
Cr Townsend said the Food & Wine Fair, which attracted over 7000
people last year, had grown to include the Volunteer Expo.
“We have over 20 volunteer organisations who’ll be exhibiting at the
fair. Even if you only have a spare couple of hours, there is
something for everyone to get involved in,” said Cr Townsend.
Live music from the 2 Shots Classic Rock Band and Desert Sea will play
throughout the day and a range of kids entertainment will be available,
including bungee tramp, climbing wall, rides and face painting.
The winners of the Fair’s online competition will be drawn at
2pm. Entries will need to be placed in the barrel located in the
marquee near the children’s playground prior to the draw.
Winnererremy Bay Reserve is located at Mona Street, Mona Vale.
Free bike racks will be available at the reserve. Parking is
available at the Council car park adjacent to the reserve (pay and

Chi and Qi Gong
Classes on Scotland Island
Tai Chi and Qi Gong are based on understandings from Chinese traditions
of well being, fitness and the subtle interplay of human energy that
contributes to health. Sets of movements are performed slowly
combined with awareness on our breathing. These movements
encourage relaxation by turning off the mind.
Relaxation allows the emotions, thoughts and physical body to rest and
be quiet. At the same time Tai Chi and Qi Gong movements improve
balance, flexibility, strength and fitness. Heart function, digestion,
the immune system and feelings of well being are strengthened by Tai
Chi and Qi Gong.
You will be welcomed! No experience is needed and Tai Chi is useful for
