Church Point Commuter Wharf News
As some of you may be aware, on Monday, December 5, 2011 after some debate, Councilors resolved to move forward to tender with two designs for the Church Point Commuter Wharf following a report from Council staff.  There are 5 companies who lodged Expressions of Interest to tender for “Stage One” of the project.

Here is the link to that report:  ViewDocumentFTP
and the link to the CP POM: Pittwater Council Website-Church Point

Attached is a slightly abridged copy of the address to Council by Bill Gye (SIRA President) speaking for the motion.

Addressing Council on Commuter Wharf - Dec 2011.doc

Council has received grant funding of $200,000.00 which must be acquitted within the next few months. The balance of the fees will be user pays and both WPCA and SIRA will continue to advocate for a lower fee than the indicative figure contained in the Church Point Plan of Management.  Once the tenders are received a more accurate cost can be reviewed.

As to the next step, SIRA and WPCA are proposing a joint survey of every Offshore household in regard to further options for carparking in the area opposite the Commuter Wharf.

Whilst there are and will remain various views within our own community about what happens at Church Point, all those who spoke on Monday night were constructive and collegial. Hopefully, we can continue discussions in a positive and community preserving manner.

P.S. Some of you may have read the article in the Manly Daily, based on Council’s Media Release, which unfortunately shows a picture of the wrong Wharf! 

Picked up a grey woman's cardigan at commuter wharf yesterday evening. I live on the island.
