Getting Closer …
The acceleration towards Pittwater Council’s final decision on the
design for additional parking at Church Point is increasing. The
decision will be made at a full Council Meeting on either the 1st or
3rd Monday in November. In mid-October, SIRA will hold a
Community Forum on Scotland Island to allow time for discussion of the
options which will be followed by a Community Forum at Mona Vale that
Pittwater Council plan to hold in mid-October.
During the period of these two Forums, a second survey will go out to
all Offshore residents that will set out the options and fees, as well
as refer residents to website links where background information is
available for those who are interested to read more on the subject.
At both the Council Community Forum and the Council Meeting it will be
highly desirable to have a significant Offshore community presence.
Please follow these links to recent Pittwater Council documents that
give some important details:

guarantee parking. But, as Council have pointed out on several
occasions, the fees are required by the Department of Lands for the use
of Crown land at Church Point and are in perpetuity (i.e. will not be
removed). The good news is that these fees are not going to the State
Government, but will be used to create additional parking for our
- Secondly, whilst the final Options are not yet
determined, the fees that Council are now proposing are significantly
less than those originally proposed in the CPPOM. For example, the
ground level only Option(s), originally $575, has been reduced to $350.
The decked Option, offering privately leased spaces is now proposed at
