PIVIT - Coomera Waters Phone System Upgrade (Feb 2017)

Message to residents from Pivit - February 2017

 

If you do not have a Pivit provided phone line or do not live in a gated area at Coomera Waters, please disregard this message.

 

Over the coming weeks, Pivit will be progressively upgrading the telephone platform on which your current phone service runs.

Depending on the infrastructure that is used to deliver the phone service to your premises, the distinctive ring feature of your phone line may not be available after the software update is completed.  This feature is usually only used on the calls that come from the gate to your house. In the past, when the gate called your house, the phone would ring differently. This will no longer be the case.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  If you have any concern, the Pivit Support Team can be contacted on 1300 66 33 20 or by return email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Coomera Town Centre update (March 2016)

From Councillor Cameron Caldwell, "I always receive lots of enquiries about the status of the Coomera Town Centre, so I just spoke to Westfield now for the latest. I am very proud to have got this project back on track and help Coomera reach its potential as a key centre for the north of our city. The Town Centre was granted a development approval by Council in March 2014. The approval had a state government imposed condition that effectively required the upgrade of exit 54 before the Town Centre could proceed.

"We were able to secure the upgrade of exit 54 which is well underway, and that has cleared the way for Westfield to proceed. At the end of last year Council granted approval for staging of the development, and the site has been completely cleared. The Town Centre is still moving ahead and we are awaiting Board approval from Westfield for them to commence bulk earthworks later this year. As an indication of how serious Westfield are about the Town Centre, they have recently contributed $9.7m towards exit 54, and their partner QIC contributed $7.6m."

Western Bay Walkway is for pedestrian use only

Just a reminder that the Western Bay Walkway (running along the water side of Nocturne Lane and Ripple Court to Sandy Beach) is for pedestrian use only. This means that you cannot ride bikes, skateboards, roller blades etc along there. Prams are allowed. There are signs about this at both ends of the walkway. The walkway is a Council easement over private property so let's all respect the rules and the rights of the residents living along the walkway.

Don't dump waste or park on Council fire trails

In the lead-up to fire season, Wasp Creek Rural Fire Brigade is working to reduce the risk to all homes and properties within our area. In recent inspections Wasp Creek discovered that some residents in Coomera Waters are dumping garden waste over their fences onto the Council fire trails that run at the back of homes. Some residents are also parking on the trails. These actions increase the bushfire risk to CW homes.

These fire trails are established as a buffer between homes and the natural bushland and it is imperative that they be kept clear to reduce the fuel loading. It also allows a clear access should a fire truck be responded to a fire call. It is illegal to dump waste on these Council fire trails (fines can be incurred). So please do not dump waste or park on the trails.

Please note that it is also against the CW by-laws to dump waste on any body corporate common property. So please don't just dump it - be responsible and considerate when disposing of any waste.

Here's the link for Council's green waste collection service which is available in Coomera Waters http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/environment/green-waste-bin-collection-23996.html

Updated parking rules in CW

The Principal Bodies Corporate, in consultation with the Neighbourhood Bodies Corporate, recently reviewed parking across the estate. The following list has been passed on to Security who are using it to continue monitoring parking on behalf of the bodies corporate.

Parking by-laws are required for the safety and protection of vehicles, residents and common property in Coomera Waters. Thank you for your assistance with these rules:

  • Parking is permitted on the roadways (next to the kerb - not on the kerb or on the grass) and visitor carparks during the day and up to midnight. The only exception to this rule is there is to be no parking on roadways in Harbour Front (Brindabella) for safety reasons on their smaller sized roads.
  • Parking on the roadways and visitor carparks between the hours of midnight to 6am will incur an infringement notice.
  • Parking is not permitted at any time on the footpaths, nature strips, swale drains and other common property vegetation areas.
  • Residents may park on their own driveway with the vehicle protruding beyond the post box boundary but not encroaching on the road.
  • Parking breaches by tradespersons etc are to be monitored and policed by Security, discussing with the offending persons to move their vehicles to appropriate parking areas when required.
  • Once three infringement notices have been issued to the same vehicle, then Security will seek instructions to place a hard-to-remove sticker (designed to be a deterrent) on the offending vehicle from the respective neighbourhood body corporate representative. Each neighbourhood body corporate committee makes their own determination re the use of stickers.
  • A resident can seek permission from their neighbourhood body corporate to park on a temporary basis within visitor car spaces or on any part of common property (incl. roadways). Permission can be sought from your Body Corporate Manager (details page 2) or from Security via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. who will pass the request onto the relevant neighbourhood body corporate committee.
  • If short-term parking approval is given, the resident is to obtain a parking permit from Security to be displayed on the dash when parked on the approved common property area.
