Masterplan on display for second time

The draft Mt Ettalong Reserve Masterplan will be open for a second round of public feedback to make up for lack of face-to-face consultation due to the coronavirus restrictions.

Feedback will be taken through online forums and over the phone.

The Mt Ettalong Reserve Masterplan focuses on the track along the naturally vegetated headland between Pearl Beach and Umina Beach with views north across the Peninsula and Brisbane Water, east to Bouddi National Park and south to Lion Island, Barrenjoey lighthouse and Pittwater.

The plan aims to make the reserve more inclusive, functional and safe for the community.

The consultation is expected to lead to an overall vision for what future work the site requires so that Council can allocate funds and attract grants for it.

One element of the plan is to replace the larger of the two current platforms, possibly in a new location to allow views onto Umina Beach.

A wider carpark entrance is also proposed to improve the sight distance for entering and exiting cars, with additional signage as well.

Council director Ms Julie Vaughan said: "We know that restrictions will ease in time and we will return with face-to-face activities when we can do so safely.

"Until then we urge all residents to try some of our new approaches and visit where they will find projects which we'd like their feedback on."

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said it is important for community members to be involved in the projects and plans that the Council proposes.

"Regardless of whether a project is something small that impacts residents in just a few streets or a major strategy that shapes the future of the region, we want the community to be involved in the journey and to jump online, learn the details and tell us what they think," she said.
