The cafe is located next to the kindy playground in Katherine
It won’t be long before our community has a new transport option at
Point, which will hopefully help relieve the pressure on the Church Point
Reserve car park and the overflow into surrounding streets.
For people who don’t use a car every day, car sharing offers the
flexibility of using a car, without the hassle of owning – and
parking – one.
It’s effectively short-term car hire – for as little as an
hour. You join the
car share scheme, book a car on-line or by phone, jump in, drive it and
back to the same spot.
After initial discussion at offshore community AGMs, a volunteer committee
canvassed local demand to find we had 58 households interested to join. We
approached Pittwater Council which has now approved 2 initial spaces
for car share vehicles in the Church Point Reserve car park, with
more as demand increases.
You may ask why car share cars deserve dedicated spaces when no-one else
• It’s the only logical way to organise it, so the many people
who drive the
same two cars at various times of day and night can find them.
That’s how car
sharing works all over the world.
• These dedicated spaces won’t make the car park more crowded.
One potential car
share member has already sold one car that used to be parked there, and
is going on the market.
• If car sharing works here – and we hope it does – it
gives members the option
to sell a car they seldom use, or defer buying another one, hopefully
parking less of a hassle for everyone.
Of course car sharing is only one of many components to help relieve
the Church Point area and ensure there is adequate infrastructure for the
future. The intention never has been to reduce the number of car parking
at Church Point, but to give people an option to keeping a car (or buying
another one) that is seldom used.
We’re currently working with Council staff and Go Get (the car share
see www.goget.com.au) to finalise
details and will provide more information soon.
