Mossy point pathway payment was handed over on site to Warren Sharpe on 2nd November. There is some concern at vehicles parking on the pathway blocking pedestrians, needs some education of locals and visitors. Clr Mayne to take it to the Roads and Traffic committee of Council.
Capt. Oldrey Park Master plan was adopted by Council on Tuesday 27th November, it is generally a plan the community can live with. At the last consultation with user groups, Council was urged to look elsewhere in coming years for further sporting oval development, not on environmentally sensitive land. It was acknowledged that Council did listen to the community, but has to balance competing needs, and discussion will continue, particularly when it comes to the road reserve. The open space in the Master plan to the west of COP will permit utility development, [sewage, pumping station, stormwater retention etc,] but not housing.
It was noted that the vote on COP was not unanimous, an amendment by Clr McGinlay to remove the future oval from the plan, retaining the Bangalay forest was lost.
President Ross addressed residents of Banksia Village to inform them about the community association, and noted that BMPCA can contribute items for their internal newsletter, and the Association may consider holding a meeting at the village if agreed to.
