‘Pasadena’ To Be Turned Into Public Space In Win For
Wednesday, 9 August 2017
In a major win for the Northern Beaches, the derelict ‘Pasadena’
property at Church Point will be turned into predominantly public open
space for all of the community to enjoy.
Northern Beaches Council Administrator Dick Persson AM and Pittwater MP
Rob Stokes have announced the NSW Government and Council will partner
to purchase the rundown eyesore.
“When I saw the state of this site during visits to Council’s capital
works upgrade at Church Point, and after listening to locals, it was
obvious what an eyesore ‘Pasadena’ is and the fact that it will soon be
significantly at odds with the rejuvenated character of the area. It
was very obvious that something needs to be done and that is why we
“With the strong backing and drive from Minister Stokes, we have agreed
that the State Government will put forward an amount of funds towards
Council’s acquisition of this site.
“I am very pleased that with the strong voice of the Northern Beaches
Council the NSW Government has agreed to work with us to benefit the
“This is a highly valued piece of the Pittwater foreshore which could
potentially deliver a wide range of recreation benefits for the local
and broader community,” Mr Persson said.
This is the last parcel of land there which is in freehold ownership.
Council staff will begin negotiations with the owner to purchase the
site. Should that not succeed, Council would proceed with the process
of compulsory acquisition.
Planning for the future use of the site would then commence with a view
to the majority of the site being converted to open space

Funds to Return Pasadena Site to Public Ownership
Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced the NSW Government has
agreed to provide financial support to Northern Beaches Council to
assist with its resolution to purchase the former Pasadena site at
The NSW Government has previously provided financial assistance to
Council’s ongoing car parking, boardwalk and pedestrian improvements
currently being introduced around the Church Point precinct.
Returning the Pasadena site to public ownership would further enable
Northern Beaches Council to provide a key community precinct that
preserves the area’s unique character and natural beauty.
“Church Point is one of our most iconic community precincts,” Rob
Stokes said today.
“Council is currently introducing generational improvements throughout
the precinct and there’s now an important opportunity for the NSW
Government to further contribute to this project.
“It’s vital that the low-key character of Church Point is maintained
and its historic purpose as a community and commuter precinct continues.
“Despite millions currently being invested in community infrastructure
improvements at Church Point – the former Pasadena site is literally
the missing piece in the puzzle.
“Its location in the centre of the community precinct is prohibitive in
enabling Council to proceed with broader landscaping, recreational and
community infrastructure improvements.
“I’m pleased the NSW Government is able to continue supporting Council
in pursuing improvements at Church Point,” Rob Stokes said.
