Project summary 

Northern Beaches Council is working with Church Point stakeholders to address current parking arrangements, safety concerns and difficulties experienced due to the high demand for car parking in the area.

At a Council Meeting held on  Monday 7 December 2015, the proposal detailed in the Community Letter and Information Pack was supported in principle, as well as a decision to optimise the Church Point parking permit through availability of overnight parking within the two main car park areas. 

We are now engaging with the community on the proposal detailed in the Community Letter and Information Pack, Local Street Concept Plan and Church Point Concept Plan and welcome your feedback. 

Community Open House 

Council staff held a community engagement session relating to the Church Point Parking Demand Management Proposal at the Bayview Yacht Racing Association on Wednesday 30 March 2016 between 5.30 - 8pm.  A full summary of the engagement session has been prepared and can be viewed under Related Documents and Information.

Project Timeline 

A Church Point parking proposal will be presented the Administrator of Northern Beaches Council in August 2016. 

The original project timeline was extended due to:

1.  Telstra phone and internet connection disruptions.

2.  The large number of submissions received (over 400), which require staff to review each submission in full and to consider and document all comments and suggestions.

Due to this, we will not be including the Church Point Parking Demand Management Proposal on the agenda for the Council Meeting on Monday 2 May 2016.
