Parking Changes at BYRA
Out of the blue and without consultation with SIRA,
parking changes were made this week by council on
Pittwater Rd, Bayview, adjacent to BYRA (Bayview Yacht
Many thanks to the residents who quickly jumped on this
and made complaints to council. SIRA also made
representation, as did some councillors, and the changes
(which were to limit parking to 6 hours during the day,
everyday) have now not been made. The signs are to be
covered up whilst Ausgrid are doing their works in the car
SIRA will continue to make representation as to the future

from Western Australia to southern Queensland.
They live in the clear waters of harbours and estuaries.
The jimble has a transparent, box-shaped bell, 3cm to 4cm
long, and a trail of tentacles 10cm to 15cm long.
They are more common where the water is a little bit
cooler; so in our waters, rather than up north.
