Information Session - The Pasadena Redevelopment 
1858 Pittwater Road, Church Point

Boston Blyth Fleming Town Planners has been engaged by the owner of the “Pasadena” at No. 1858 Pittwater Road, Church Point to prepare a development application to Pittwater Council for the redevelopment of the site. Essentially the application involves alterations, additions and the adaptive re-use of the existing building with ground floor restaurant/ function facility, retail and cafe uses with guest/ short term accommodation over. Such uses generally reflect and maintain the historical use of the site. It is not intended to rely on the consent granted by the Land and Environment Court of NSW.

Prior to submission of the development application to Council we are holding an on-site information session to introduce the scheme and seek constructive feedback from interested parties and community groups.

Location: The Pasadena - No. 1858 Pittwater Road, Church Point

Date: Friday 12th October 2012

When: 3:00pm
Please RSVP by 5:00pm on Thursday 11th October 2012

Pittwater residents are being asked what kind of Pittwater they want to live in by 2025.

The question is being put to residents as consultation gets underway on a new community strategic plan for Pittwater.

The Council’s first strategic plan was developed with residents in 2008, as part of the state government’s requirement for all NSW councils to develop long-term plans for their communities and review them every four years.

The new plan will be based on over nine months of community consultation, with the plan to be adopted in its final form by the middle of 2013.

General Manager Mark Ferguson said Pittwater 2025, as the new strategic plan is called, will influence all aspects of the Council’s operations.

“Our annual budgets and day-to-day operations for the next 12 years will be directed by Pittwater 2025,” he said. “This is why it’s so important for residents to comment on the plan’s goals.”

“Pittwater 2025 is based around the five key directions of the natural environment, working & learning, good government, the built environment and connecting the community, with strategies arising from each one.”

Newly elected Mayor Jacqueline Townsend encouraged residents to have their say on the plan. “It’s a real opportunity for residents to have their say about priorities and long-term goals for the local area,” she said

The Council is offering a range of ways for residents to comment on Pittwater 2025. Six community forums are being held during October in Avalon, North Narrabeen and Mona Vale. To book into one, visit www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/pittwater2025 or phone 9970 1224.

An online discussion hosted by an independent market research company will also be held on 14 November, which residents can book into at www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/pittwater2025.

Residents can also comment online by ‘liking’ objectives, making a comment or asking a question at www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/pittwater2025
