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.

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

Council has received grant funding of $200,000.00 which must 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.

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.

Council’s Media Release, which unfortunately shows a picture of the
