Committee Reports

Safety Audit
Alan Petersen gave a report on the Safety Audit and referred to a safety audit document issues needing attention included:
policing, unsafe pathways, lighting, roads, parking, safe walking from ferry to shopping centre.
Lighting on the eastern side of Brighton St between the shops and Scarborough St, pathway from school to shops, signage, Rymil place pathway lighting

Many thanks to Alan Petersen and Alan Jones for their work on the safety audit

Horderns Reserve
Neil gave an up-date on the re-naming of Horderns Reserve to Berenice Forster Reserve. It is now before council for consideration for the second time and appears that there will be a favourable outcome.

Old Corner Store Site - Brighton St
Progress has written to council several times requesting that this site be cleaned up. It is over grown with weeds and detracts from the shopping centre. Council is preparing to take legal action against the developer who owns the site

Bundeena Wharf
Tamsin Clarke referred to a report on the wharf and bush fire hazard reduction prepared by John Gawthorn and tabled at the meeting. Tamsin said that the Workcover Authority has requested that wharf construction temporarily cease during the short period when the ferry is operating at Bundeena Wharf.
Our attention was also drawn to the high fuel load around Bundeena in the Royal National Park, particularly Spring Gully, and the need for a hazard reduction programme.

Moved that Progress write to all the relevant authorities requesting that an appropriate hazard reduction programme be implemented.
Alan Petersen, Tamsin Clarke.

Sir Bertram Stevens Drive
Five letters and three phone calls to the RTA and still no replies to our letters and no action taken to rectify the incorrectly marked double lines on a perfectly clear overtaking section of the road one kilometre south of the Warumbul turn-off.

General Busines

There was considerable discussion about dogs on the beaches. It was pointed out to the meeting that the rules applying to Horderns Beach still apply

Residents from Maianbar said that signs relating to the sand flats that were removed two years ago when work was carried out on the playground have not been replaced. There is an obligation to protect the sandflats for migratory birds. There is a sign at Bonnie Vale which states - no vehicles, no dogs, no litter.

Everyone present was invited to have afternoon tea at the Catholic Church. Funds raised are for the bush fire appeal.

Meeting closed at 4.15 PM
