Imagine the future of Mona Vale20 Aug 2015
Pittwater Council considered the community engagement outcomes from the Mona Vale place planning process at its meeting this week.
Pittwater Mayor Jacqui Townsend said the report that came to Council contained a detailed account of how the community would like to see the future of Mona Vale.
Mayor Townsend said the Imagine Mona Vale – Engagement Summary report highlights feedback from engagement activities undertaken over the last 18 months, in particular the urban talks series earlier this year.
“We were delighted with the level of interest in our urban talks and workshops, with 1,300 community comments received over the engagement period, including input from local businesses and support from the local chamber.
“We had expert panelists and interactive discussions around ‘people & destinations’, ‘retail & economics’, ‘access and linkages’ and ‘urban fabric and the public realm’,” said Mayor Townsend.
“These sessions provided the framework for capturing key ideas about place planning in the context of the future of Mona Vale Town.
“We also saw a number of social ‘activation’ events in the centre which offered the chance for Council staff to interact with community members that perhaps would not usually attend Council’s engagement events.
“These included an outdoor cinema in Village Park, the Mona Vale Long Lunch, art installations, along with a series of pop-ups events offering food, music and temporary bars.
“There is a great opportunity for Mona Vale to take advantage of predicted economic growth and position itself as the peninsula’s vibrant urban town centre - it will be an exciting time for Mona Vale!” added Mayor Townsend.
Place Planning Manager Melinda Hewitt said the community’s feedback will inform the next phase of the place planning process which includes:
• proceeding with a parking & traffic study
• shaping draft planning controls that address the priorities expressed by the community
• identifying innovative housing opportunities
• finalising concepts for Village Park
• developing a program of ‘quick wins’ for the town centre.

All the Wine that's fit to Drink :)Greetings Wine Lovers
Spring is sprung, the grass is riz.....
It does seem to have been a long winter. Selfishly I tend to sip on reds during winter and thus miss out on the wonderful range of white wines that we produce in Australia. So here is my - and your - chance to replenish the stock in your wine rack.
Our next tasting is on SUNDAY October 11th at 3pm at 'Caloola' in Elvina Bay. I know the western shores crowd have been anxiously awaiting a local tasting and of course it will be with much pleasure that we invite islanders, their friends and family to join us.
No tasting notes yet but they will be in your inbox before you can say 'cheers'
Much more detail soon.
For the moment, please circle October 11th 2015.
