The Council has decided this week to approve a plan for a new 120 space
car park at McCarrs Creek Road, Church Point.
The plan will also see a realignment of the road, a new seawall and a
new boardwalk to improve safety for pedestrians and motorists.

- Option 1 - a 60 space car park at road level with
front or rear to kerb parking - $5.4 million
- Option 2 - a 120 space car park with 60 car
spaces at road level plus 60 car spaces on a single deck above -
- Option 3 - a 60 space car park (adjusted to 39
spaces) presented by Church Point Friends Group - $5.4 million.
“The car park component of the project is to be financed via a loan

He said the car park would be suitably landscaped with a façade of
recycled wharf timbers in keeping with the area’s maritime history.
“The Council will now move forward with this project and will apply for
a low interest rate loan under the State Government’s LIRS assistance
program.” he said.
