Church Point Parking Permits & AUSGRID Project

Church Point Parking Permits 19/20 Form
Ausgrid still have no firm start date from the contractor.  If they do not get one within a reasonable time frame they may decide to postpone until February next year!
Those who have submitted interest in relocating will need to renew their permits for the 2019-20 year and Ausgrid will have a claim form that can be submitted for reimbursement.  Currently the reimbursement is $350.
There are still a few other details that Council is exploring, such as the possibility of lockers at CP, lighting at Rowland Reserve, and a method of tagging those who will be parking at Rowland Reserve.  This is important because if there is not an identifier on these vehicles/permits then there is a danger that people will park in the carpark anyway!!!
There was a suggestion that the Ranger look at the numbers on the permits to determine whether those vehicles should be at Rowland during the duration of works!!!  This is being reviewed and it may well be that a permanent stamp on the permit could suffice (an R in bold colour), but this will need to be decided quickly this week as people will be going in to purchase permits for September soon.
See attached link to NBC regarding the Ausgrid project and the Church Point Parking Scheme.

Reminder CP Commuter Wharf Permits are due September 1
