Gunyah Access Threatened

Gunyah Beach Staircase
Residents worry access to Gunyah Beach will be reduced with proposed plans to introduce a turning area near one of the existing public entrances.

Bundeena residents are concerned over the encroachment of a development onto the public access path to Gunyah beach’s “white steps” staircase. The staircase leads to the eastern side of Gunyah beach. Street access to the staircase is via a green nature strip which straddles the first beachside house on The Lambeth Walk and the last beachside house on Neil St.

Sutherland Shire Council Plans

Over the last year the Neil St house was rebuilt and a new concreted driveway was put in place of the street facing nature strip. Plans from Sutherland Shire Council dated February 2018 reveal works to introduce a turning area which will service the homes located at 47 – 53 Neil St. The new turning area will block off the majority of access to the existing nature strip which leads to white steps and in its place a new staircase starting from Neil St will provide access to the nature strip.

Pre Rebuild

The proposed turning area has upset a number of locals who don’t like the reduced entry area for pedestrians and the loss of natural views along with green space to concrete. The Gunyah Access Action Group has been formed on Facebook to stop Council’s plans.
