PRESENTATION OF PETITIONS

 

Presentation of Petitions

Clr Proudfoot presented a petition containing 14 signatures which states:

“We, the undersigned, residents of Tahnee Street, Sanctuary Point, are concerned with the recent increase in traffic volume using this street. Tahnee Street has become a thoroughfare for through traffic due to recent road infrastructure changes, connecting with links Avenue, Corella Street and Jean Street. Tahnee Street is not sufficiently wide enough (4m) to allow two way traffic to pass safely. This has caused traffic to encroach on and damage the nature strip. The location of storm water drain entrances near the corners of Tahnee Street has led to tyre damage. Cars travelling at unsafe speeds have been noted and could result in vehicle collisions.

We, the undersigned, request to installation of speed humps to slow the traffic and to minimise the volume of traffic using Tahnee Street as a thoroughfare.”

CL18.52     Notice of Motion - Various Issues - Sanctuary Point & St Georges Basin

HPERM Ref: D18/89913

Recommendation

That following a meeting with several concerned community members, that the ensuing list of requests be given serious consideration for inclusion in future budgets, work’s programmes and funding applications. Staff would need to provide their professional input and report back to Council with a realistic way forward:

1.    Traffic calming measures on Larmer Avenue, Sanctuary Point on the approach to Cockrow Creek bridge where the 70 km/hr becomes 50 km/hr, be installed. Local residents are adamant that motor vehicles, garbage trucks and delivery wagons are travelling across the bridge at speeds in excess of 80 km/hr, with noise levels being intolerable and the risk of accidents high.

2.    Urgent road maintenance works be carried out on The Park Drive at, Sanctuary Point at various locations, but in particular from Larmer Avenue to Boronia Avenue and to Boronia Avenue itself.

3.    A roundabout be constructed at the corner of Sanctuary Point Road and Larmer Avenue/ Paradise Beach Road, Sanctuary Point.

4.    Acknowledge and promote Palm Beach as the iconic beach that it is, and support this acknowledgement with enlightened expenditure on infrastructure. 

5.    Upgrading of the Basin Walking track through Sanctuary Point, as proposed in 2015.

6.    Provision of at least 3 new barbeque shelters where users can also enjoy their meals under cover, similar to the way that it occurs in other locations such as Mollymook, Plantation Point and Sussex Inlet, and who knows how many other locations within the Shoalhaven.

7.    Removal of the dangerous, sharp and pointy, introduced grasses around the trees and seating areas throughout Ray Brooks Reserve, Paradise Beach and other St George’s Basin public foreshore reserves.

8.    Reconsideration of the dangerous stairs, recently constructed from Ray Brooks Reserve to the 5 star, “By the Beach B and B,” with only a one-sided handrail, with a long drop to the bottom. Modification at the top also needs attention.

9.    Removal of the large sand and wrack piles from alongside of the toilet block together with the large piles of mulch.

10.   A serious review of the deterioration of the ageing ramp from Greville Avenue to the bottom of Ray Brooks Reserve.

11.  The construction of a boardwalk to allow a safe continuation of the Basin Walking track around it’s original course at the base of the cliff beneath and around Red-head Point, as properly shown on Google Earth. This would  make it available for everyone to complete their walk or ride in safety, including the disabled, mothers with prams, mothers with children, children on bikes, older citizens requiring a level platform to walk on, sports’ enthusiasts, as well as the future influx of tourists. 

12.  A safety audit regarding the impact of foreshore vegetation on the capacity of parents and carers to adequately supervise young children whilst they swim at beaches such as Palm and Paradise Beaches, Sanctuary Point.
