Local Council Notices


Off-shore residents wishing to apply for a permit will need to purchase an annual permit from Council’s Customer Service Centre located at Park Street, Mona Vale (above the Library). 

The permit will be issued annually for a fee of $275.00.  Should local residents elect not to purchase an annual parking permit, parking permits will need to be purchased through the pay and display parking machines located through the precinct.flyer

Proof of Residency must be provided when purchasing the parking permit or 10% GST will apply (increasing the parking permit price to $302.50).

The short term parking area adjacent to the Pasadena and general store will not require permits.

Parking permits will be needed throughout the precinct including Church Point Reserve through to the top of McCarrs Creek Road (above Holmeport Marina).

The SMART way to beat the new car park fees
Go Get Car Share

Does your family keep a car at Church Point that you don’t use often? Why pay an extra $275, on top of the rego, insurance, maintenance, etc – and take up a precious car space – when there’s a smarter alternative?

Go Get car share lets you use a car, without all the hassle and expense of owning one. It gives you a real option to replace the second or third car in a family.

And best of all, each Go Get car has a dedicated parking spot so you don’t have the stress of finding a park.

If you haven’t tried it and want to learn more, try the 60 second video by following this link:

There’s a GoGet car at Church Point, and once you join GoGet, you can book it on-line or by phone. If you need it, say, every Wednesday evening from 5-7pm, you can book it for up to a year in advance.

If you want a car for a weekend or holiday, there are sedans, station wagons, people-movers and utes available. And you can use the whole network of GoGet cars all over Sydney, as well as Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.

Car share is basically like hiring a car for an hour (or more) at a time, without any of the paperwork hassles. You book it, swipe the windscreen with your membership card, jump in and drive. And you don’t even have to pay for petrol, or maintenance, or insurance or rego. You could give it a try with the low commitment “Go Starter” plan with no security deposit and no monthly fees.

After nearly two years at Church Point, we now have 32 drivers in 25 households, and the average trip is about 3-4 hours.

Go Get really does help reduce the pressure on the car park by giving people a viable option to keeping a car (or buying another one) which is seldom used.
