Delivered

Dear Northern Beaches Council,

Dear Northern Beaches Council,

1) Why has Council not applied the provisions of the Coastal Protect Act to the Coastal protection works at 1184 Pittwater Rd-as is required under the Act? Specifically why have bonds not been required or maintenance provisions imposed on that consent as is specifically required under the Act?

2)How much did the Collaroy Carpark Coastal Protection works cost? Was the carpark damaged by the 2016 storms and if so-to what extent?

3) How much has Council spent on legal fees defending Land & Environment Court appeals related to seawalls since the 2016 storm? Please include direct and indirect costs.

4)Will Northern Beaches Council implement "planned retreat" or a similar policy at Collaroy now or in the future?

5)Why has Council implemented Time Limited Consents on approvals for Coastal protection works at Collaroy? Why has Council selectively excluded this condition from certain approvals?

6)In financial year 2018-what percentage of Total Council revenues-found its way back to the community by way of community projects?

7)In 2006 Warringah Council accepted liability for having subdivided residential Lots too close to the high tide mark and adopted the construction of a seawall, entirely at its own cost, as a management strategy. Why has council now left this construction to private property owners? What liability does Council carry from this historic subdivision too close to the water mark?

8) Why has Council approved Coastal Protection Works on Crown Land at 1114 Pittwater Rd Collaroy, given the Lot extends Eastward to nearly the high tide mark and the protection works could easily have been contained within private boundaries? How is this in the public interest? How does this benefit public beach amenity?

9) Will council shift or attempt to have beachfront residents contribute to sand nourishment costs at Collaroy Narrabeen now or in the future? Is Council attempting to shift sand nourishment costs to the Crown or residents? Will council introduce a levy for sand nourishment or maintenance of beach amenity?

10)Did Council impose any conditions on Collaroy Services Club for the coastal protection works recently constructed by them? If not-why?

11) Does Council have a relationship with Horton Coastal engineering and did the relationship precede the June 2016 storms? Does Council consider this a conflict of interest? Did Council communicate with Horton Coastal engineering regarding specific applications for Coastal protection works between June 2016 and December 2016? If so-please provide a copy of such communication.

12) How many seawalls have been constructed by private residents since the June 2016 storms to protect the numerous properties on the Collaroy Beachfront?

Yours faithfully,
Jean Pierre Salama
