Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced the NSW Government has agreed to provide financial support to Northern Beaches Council to assist with its resolution to purchase the former Pasadena site at Church Point.

The NSW Government has previously provided financial assistance to Council’s ongoing car parking, boardwalk and pedestrian improvements currently being introduced around the Church Point precinct.

Returning the Pasadena site to public ownership would further enable Northern Beaches Council to provide a key community precinct that preserves the area’s unique character and natural beauty.

“Church Point is one of our most iconic community precincts,” Rob Stokes said today.

“Council is currently introducing generational improvements throughout the precinct and there’s now an important opportunity for the NSW Government to further contribute to this project.

“It’s vital that the low-key character of Church Point is maintained and its historic purpose as a community and commuter precinct continues.

“Despite millions currently being invested in community infrastructure improvements at Church Point – the former Pasadena site is literally the missing piece in the puzzle.

“Its location in the centre of the community precinct is prohibitive in enabling Council to proceed with broader landscaping, recreational and community infrastructure improvements.

“I’m pleased the NSW Government is able to continue supporting Council in pursuing improvements at Church Point,” Rob Stokes said.
