I look forward to this development assisting in the promotion of the historical value of the area and would personally love to see Public Art and History incorporated in the new developments.
Having active members of the community and business minded people involved with Council in working towards achieving the vision for the Kangaroo Bay area has lead to many beneficial outcomes.
Additional public parking in the immediate area as part of an overall parking plan for Bellerive is needed. The proponents of this development on top of what parking will be provided in the development will contribute an additional $800,000 towards parking and this together with other developer contributed funds will assist in providing multi-level parking which I feel has to be destined for the Rosny/Bellerive area.
Generally, the ratepayers of Clarence have been waiting such a long time for something to happen at Kangaroo Bay and are amazed that there would be any opposition to this iconic low level development.
The Federal Government provided $5M for the preparation of this site for development and now that there is a real tangible proponent with $50M to invest in our city makes for exciting times.
There is sufficient area at Kangaroo Bay to encompass active and passive recreation combining magnificently with the Yacht Club with whom Council has consulted openly and regularly.
This significant Commercial development will raise the status and exposure of all surrounding enterprises and will invigorate an area that has been raring to get kick-started!
For many years a large part of the Kangaroo Bay foreshore area was degraded, had restricted access, and provided poor urban environment and public amenity. This project together works already undertaken seeks to activate the potential of Kangaroo Bay to be a world-class waterfront destination, an inclusive place for both residents and visitors. This development will provide economic, social and community benefits to the City of Clarence.
I hope to continue on Council at such a progressive time and be at the forefront of decision making on behalf of the entire community.
