Construction to revitalize Church Point is scheduled to begin on Monday, 22 August, according to Northern Beaches Council.
Works will be staggered, with the first stage of works including land reclamation, a new seawall with a suspended timber boardwalk and the McCarrs Creek Road realignment between the café/general store and Rostrevor Reserve.
Northern Beaches Council General Manager, Mark Ferguson, said that the Council was committed to helping shape the future of Church Point in the best interest of residents, businesses and visitors.
“The Church Point upgrade is a project borne out of collaboration between the community and Council and it’s a delight to see construction begin,” he said.
“The $10 million upgrade will deliver a new and improved amenity for locals to enjoy and a much-needed parking solution for our offshore residents.”
A comprehensive consultation process is underway with the ‘Aesthetics Advisory Group’.
This group is made up of members of various community groups and stakeholders, to ensure the aesthetic appearance and landscaping at Church Point reflects local residents’ desires.
He said that the contractor, specialist civil engineer consultancy Ward Civil and Environmental Engineering, and all involved will work closely to manage construction work and that the Council will update residents on the progress of the project.
This project will take approximately 18 months to complete, weather depending.
