Wharves Project Update
Northern Beaches Council advised on 10th January, 2019 that, after
calling for tenders in November for Bell and Carols Wharves designs,
they are now sorting out contracts. Their aim is to consult the
community about a design concept in the first few months of this year.
Council has also advised that they have to negotiate with Crown Lands
NSW as many of the potential concepts are outside the existing reserves.
They intend to organise a kick-start meeting with the Wharves working
group and the consultant once all the contracts are finalised, which
should be in the next couple of weeks.

A Survey On Ticks And
Wildlife In The Northern Beaches
University of Sydney is conducting a study to better understand how
residents and their pets are encountering ticks and wildlife in their
backyards. We invite all Northern Beaches residents to participate in
Coastal bushland remnants and other green spaces across the Northern
Beaches are home to a variety of native plants and animals. They also
provide a place for residents to enjoy their favourite outdoor
pastimes. Paralysis ticks (Ixodes holocyclus) are common in the
Northern Beaches and feed on a wide range of animal hosts during their
life cycle. Understanding the complex relationship between ticks and
their host species is an essential part of our research. The
information we gain will contribute to our growing knowledge of ticks
and will guide future research efforts.
We aim to identify:
To meet these aims, it is important for you to provide a street
address. If you would prefer not to, we ask that you provide your
street name and nearest cross street. It is important for us to create
a map of tick encounters to understand what landscape features might
influence tick presence and where to target future research.
- Areas where people are encountering ticks more than
others (tick 'hotspots'),
- Backyard and landscape features that may influence
tick presence, and
- Wildlife using backyards and how this might or might
not influence tick occurrence
All identifying information will be removed from any data presentations.
The survey should only take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is
