The Mayor and Councillors

Bayside City Council

Dear Mayor and Councillors,

Need for Identifying Name and More Appropriate Zoning for Areas of Beaumaris Public Land

Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc. has identified ten areas of public land in Beaumaris, in addition to established named and properly zoned reserves, that it considers are, individually and collectively, important features of the remaining public open space in Beaumaris, and that add significantly to the character and amenity of Beaumaris.

These ten areas appear to be the only areas of public land contributing to the distinctive character of Beaumaris that still lack an official name by which they can be readily recognized and referred to, and come to be better cherished by the Beaumaris community. They also have, in all but the case of the Concourse Green, which Bayside City Council recently wisely recognized had long been inappropriately zoned, and fortunately succeeded in having rezoned, a zoning that does not offer sufficient recognition of their significance, or provide sufficient protection for their long term future.

The Society has listed these areas of public land in the table on the following page, which it submits to the Council in the hope that the Council will consider initiating the bestowal of official names on each of the unnamed areas, and will also consider initiating proposals to upgrade the zoning of these areas of public land under the Bayside Planning Scheme, as we have suggested in the table.

Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc. hopes that the Council will find our suggested names useful when it is considering naming the various areas, as we believe those names suitably describe the nature of each area, or a significant aspect of it. The Society would be very willing to elaborate on the significance of each of the areas if requested, and explain the reasons for its proposals.

Yours sincerely

Adrian Cerbasi

President
