The SIRA Committee received a [wpfilebase tag=fileurl id=220 linktext=’letter ‘ /]from Mark Ferguson, General Manager, Pittwater Council dated 16 February outlining a plan to introduce a dedicated Wharf Ranger.
This Ranger will cover the entire Church Point Precinct (extending from Rostrevor Reserve to Thomas Stephens Reserve, Church Point carpark and associated foreshores) and other wharves and boat tie-up facilities across Pittwater in order to tackle the many compliance issues. This initiative is in response to a number of complaints received from Offshore community members about the lack of compliance enforcement.
From Monday 23 February 2015 there will be a full time Ranger on duty on a 12 month trial basis. The first month will be an education exercise, after which infringement notices will be issued.
SIRA has been advised that this is being funded from the existing Ranger budget and using existing staff resource and no funding is being taken away from the Church Point carpark fund.
