Stage 1 complete

In 2009, the then Pittwater Council adopted a comprehensive Plan of Management and associated Masterplan for the Church Point precinct to address the lack of car parking at Church Point.

A number of options were considered and extensive community engagement completed. At the Council Meeting held on 16 December 2013, Council endorsed the construction a car park with 120 spaces. Work was completed through 2016 and 2017 and included:

  • reclamation of land
  • construction on a new cargo wharf and pedestrian boardwalk
  • incorporation of a new piered seawall
  • a road realignment
  • landscaping and aesthetic improvements.

Council is now moving into the next stage of the upgrades which will include the finalisation of the pedestrian walkway, boardwalk extension and additional short term pontoons.

Over the coming months, roadwork designs will also be completed which will enable the realignment of McCarrs Creek Road. These changes will improve the pedestrian safety in the area and also link the western and central Church Point precincts.

Future plans also include the relocation of the Church Point Ferry Wharf and upgrade of Thomas Stephens Reserve. Designs for these will be available for community comment in late 2020.
