REMINDER – Make your Church Point Submission

This is a reminder that the closing date for submissions responding to Council’s proposals for Demand and Parking management at Church Point is this Sunday, April 10. Some residents have asked for a clear explanation of the issue. For this we have prepared:

Others have asked us to provide some guidance as to what could be/should be covered in a submission. The following sets out the major issues and what we are asking for:

Issue Response
There is no formal recognition of the fact that Offshore residents need to have access to a parking space so they can get to and from their homes
  • A resident parking scheme to be introduced
  • That the exemptions in and around CP are for Offshore residents only. That CPPP are only sold to Offshore residents
50% of the existing carpark is designated ‘only for CPPP’ between 6pm and 6am
  • We ask for 100% of all available carparks be overnight exclusive to CPPP
  • We have the right to resident parking and we are a major financial contributor to the CP infrastructure
Only 50% (i.e. 27) of the available 54 spaces in the new carpark are designated ‘only for CPPP’ between 6pm and 6am
  • The 50% should apply to the whole carpark, including the spaces designated for private lease i.e. 100% of all 54 available spaces
  • We have the right to resident parking and we are a major financial contributor to the CP infrastructure
The existing proposal does not make explicit reference to CPPP exemption during 4P 6am-6pm for all of the 54 spaces in the new carpark that are not designated privately leased, disabled or 5 min
  • This needs to be made explicit as it has been confirmed many times by Council that this would be the case
  • It would not make sense to have conditions in the new carpark that were less than those already existing in the current main carpark
The Church Point streets are proposed to become 4P and a significant number of spaces reduced for safety reasons, a loss of more than 100 spaces that Offshore residents currently use for “overflow” parking
  • The number of spaces lost due to safety to be kept to a minimum
  • The 4P restriction should be exempt for CPPP holders
  • Once the foreshore is full our cars have to go somewhere. If not local streets, then it will be other streets such as Bakers Road, BYRA and beyond (with a longer walk).
In the current carpark, Council proposes to increase the number of 4P spaces that are not accessible for CPPP from 9 to 11
  • We cannot have a reduction of 11 spaces for CPPP, every car space is important and should be used
  • There already are 9 existing 4P spaces and this number is sufficient for short term visitors
The 10 spaces at ‘Botham’s Beach Carpark’ (old bus turning circle) currently have no restrictionsCouncil proposes that these become 12P
  • Again, this is a reduction of potential spaces for Offshore residents which is not acceptable
  • The 12P restriction should not apply to CPPP holders (i.e. should be CPPP exempt)
There is reference to 60 privately leased spaces in the new carpark area, whereas the adopted budget for the project only assumed 50
  • The number of privately leased spaces should be kept to the minimum necessary to fund the project
  • ·This arrangement should cease once the 10-year loan is repaid
