The Northern Beaches
Independent Assessment Panel - North refused the DA for the Pasadena in
its assessment published today. Please find the full text of the
Refurbishment, BCA upgrade
and fitout of the existing building in order to achieve a licensed
restaurant and motel accommodation and the construction and use of a
new day spa
At: 1858 PITTWATER ROAD,
CHURCH POINT NSW 2105 (Lot 142 DP 752046)
That the development application be refused
for the following reasons:-
1. The panel considered the issue of existing use rights for the
purposes of Part 4, Division 10 of the Environmental Planning &
Assessment Act 1979 (NSW) and concluded that the subject land does not
enjoy the benefits of “existing use rights”.
2. The proposed motel use is prohibited within the B1 Neighbourhood
Centre Zone under PLEP 2014.
3. The application is unsatisfactory in that the parking demands are
not met on the site having regard to the shortfall in existing and
future parking demand in the Church Point Locality, and particularly in
peak demand periods.
4. The application is unsatisfactory in that it has not adequately
addressed the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment
Regulation 2000, as submitted information has not provided information
that specifies the maximum number of persons proposed to operate the
development as a whole.
5. The application is unsatisfactory in having regard to Section 79C
(1)(c),(d) submissions made in accordance with the Act or the
regulations and (e) the public interest.
1. This determination was taken under delegated authority on behalf of
the elected Council pursuant to Section 377 of the Local Government Act
2. An applicant may under Section 82A of the Act, apply to council to
review this determination.
3. Section 97 of the Act confers on the applicant who is dissatisfied
with the determination of a consent authority a right of appeal to the
Land & Environment Court exercisable within 6 months after receipt
of this notice.
4. Any person who contravenes this notice of determination of the
above mentioned development application shall be guilty of a breach of
the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act, 1979, and shall be
liable to a monetary penalty and for a restraining order which may be
imposed by the Land and Environment Court.
CHURCH POINT PARKING
CHANGES PLANNED TO BE IN PLACE BY CHRISTMAS
Council today confirmed to the SIRA Executive in a meeting that the
Traffic Committee adopted the final recommendation for the changes to
parking arrangements (Stage 1), and that these, including those in the
current (old) car park, will be in place by Christmas.
This will mean that the Church Point Parking Permit exclusive parking
in one row of the car park will be in force from 6 pm to 6 am every
day. This should create some relief for us during the busy holiday
period. The parking conditions for the other rows in the car park will
remain unchanged until the new car park is ready for use.
Changes to parking in the Church Point Streets will also be introduced,
however roadworks will be required to complete all changes, which means
these changes will take longer to be introduced.
MIDDLE ELSIE STREET GRANT
Not long ago SIRA submitted a grant application with the NSW government
for the restoration of middle Elsie Street Track. A grant of $15,000
has been awarded! We owe our gratitude to Bill Gye for making the
application as one of his last actions while he was SIRA President.
The committee will form a project group to manage the project and will
welcome input and help from residents to make this a success.

Church Point Car Park
Update - Quick Poll
Council are seeking your
feedback on the preferred car park bay widths
of the new
carpark. This will not
affect the design of the disabled
(DDA) car spaces.
are seeking your feedback on the preferred car park bay widths of the
new carpark. This will not affect the design of the disabled (DDA) car
The options are
- The carpark bay widths at 2.6m (status quo)
- This will provide easier vehicle manoeuvering and
access and will comply to a ‘Class 3’ carpark under Australian Standards
- This is the current design specification and produces
the original amount of design spaces (120 number in total)
- The carpark bay widths at 2.5m
- This will make vehicle manoeuvering and access more
difficult and will comply to a ‘Class 2’ carpark under Australian
- The smaller bay widths will allow for a minimum 2
extra spots per level (so minimum 4 extra spots in total) in the new
carpark. There is an opportunity in further detailed design to
potentially have an extra 2 spaces in total with this option (so
possibly 6 extra spots in total).
