Scotland Island Recreation
Proposal to set up a
Scotland Island Recreation Club (SIRC)
SIRA is considering the formation of a Scotland Island Recreation Club
(SIRC) and would appreciate any feedback/constructive ideas on this.
Initially this could be very small scale and comprise the management of
a couple of table tennis sessions in the Community Hall. SIRA is
willing to purchase a number of tables.
Sessions could be during the day and late afternoon to accommodate all
If this proves successful we could look at expanding the activities. We
would be looking for active volunteers to help. This is an opportunity
to contribute to the health and wellbeing of the community, as well as
to meet new people.
Please contact Anne Dennis, Secretary, with feedback and comments.
Planning Our Sustainable
Our community is passionate about the Northern Beaches and
we want any future development to be in keeping with our lifestyle,
environment, local character and changing community needs.
We’re taking our four current Local Environmental Plans (LEP’s) and Development Control Plans (DCP’s) and working with
our community and other stakeholders to create one new planning
This is our opportunity to create a roadmap for managing the way our
area evolves, in a consistent, sustainable and coordinated way, over
the next 20 years and beyond.
Our new LEP, and the Development Control Plan that supports it, must be
consistent with the themes and regional directions set by the Greater Sydney Commission in the North District Plan, and it must also respond to
what our community told us when we developed our Community Strategic
We’re starting this process by creating a Local Strategic Planning Statement, called Towards
This new planning document will outline our future vision, set
priorities, and include actions to achieve the priorities and planning
principles; confirming our commitment to a sustainable future.
Good planning is all about looking ahead and ensuring we have the
housing, infrastructure, services and environment to support our lives
now, and for the future. Our aim is to do this while protecting and
enriching the characteristics that make living here so special.

Carbon Fibre Rudder, Rudder-Box and Tiller for sale
Built for our yacht,
Revolver by Noakes boatyard.
As the stern of our boat is so wide, we realised we needed to place
another style of rudder UNDER the boat.
This configuration was used for a month when we launched at a cost of
10k to build.
Knowing it wont fetch anything near that, I am open to an offer.
I would love to see it on a Woody Point contender that might be between
30 and 42 feet long.
Blade is 2 meters and would be approx 1.5 below water line.
