Committee Reports

Maureen Keller, Helen Vogt

Moya reported that Dr Nichols is going very well.

Moved that Progress write to Paul McLeay requesting that the level of the weir at Audley be raised to form a low level crossing about .8 of a metre higher that the existing level.
Neil deNett, Norma Parry-Williams

This height would provide a flood-free crossing around 90% of the time. In 1962 Progress requested that a high level crossing be built at Audley, but this was rejected at the time, as it would have been too costly. Eventually a bridge was built at Waterfall, which we can use today when Audley is flooded.

Advantages of raising the weir this amount would be a relatively low cost, as the road at either end would remain substantially the same.

It would provide a quicker access for an ambulance in an emergency. Even in a minor flood vehicles have to travel via Waterfall. This extra time could be critical. In the rare event of a major flood, Waterfall can still be used.

It would save time and fuel for residents who travel to work and are frequently frustrated by misleading flood signs and only a low level of water on the causeway, which many times is not as high as the footpath on the causeway.

General Business

Moved that Progress write to Paul McLeay requesting information about the changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act which was recently passed by the state government.
Neil deNett, Helen Vogt

Moved that we write to council asking if there is any way to build traffic calming devices on the western end of Scarborough St
Neil deNett, Alan Petersen

John Gawthorn noted that aircraft noise and pollution over Bundeena had virtually ceased. John said that Scott Morrison, our Federal MP has been helpful in assisting to achieve this result
