BeCA had its April Committee Meeting last night.
Much of the meeting was devoted to reports from many of the meetings BeCA had recently been involved in. Reports on these meetings have been detailed in posts below. In some cases follow up action is required.
BeCA still needs volunteer deliverers for the Newsletter. There is a turn over of deliverers as people’s home situations change. Sometimes work commitments mean they can no longer help out, in other cases people head off for an extended vacation or just leave the area to live elsewhere. Volunteer deliverers ensure every home in our estate receives its newsletter 8 times per annum. Please email BeCA HERE if you are able to help out even if it may be on an ’emergency’ basis. BeCA needs your help on this one. Deliverers usually are asked to deliver up to 200 newsletters which can be done at a walking pace in a little over 1 hour.
BeCA has been approached by Stockland to find a group of residents to attend a forum this Sunday (11 am to 2 pm) at the Land Sales Office at the main park area by the top lake to discuss planning for the new park areas for Bellvista2. Child Minding facilities will be available as too will refreshments. Stockland have previously provided a fine spread for these sorts of events. You can find all details on what is happening from THIS post. Stockland would like to have a group of somewhere between 10 and 15 people attend and there are plenty of vacancies still available. More details will be provided to prospective participants. If you are interested please email your acceptance or enquiry HERE or contact our Secretary on 0407546311.
Some residents have voiced concerns over the behaviour of helicopters over the estate. There appears to have been renewed inappropriate behaviour impacting on residents as flights over the estate have increased recently. One person rang the Airport Hotline to complain and was redirected to an 1800 number. Other people have reported they rang the hotline and were asked to hold for a moment and were left hanging on. This was not the agreed procedure. BeCA will raise the issue with Airport Management and at the next Airport Forum Meeting. If you have concerns over inappropriate helicopter behaviour you should be able to call the airport and register a complaint on (07) 5453 1501. If you have problems getting your complaint through please contact BeCA via THIS link.
BeCA quickly discussed concerns over access to and from Bellvista2 especially possible traffic congestion during school pick up and drop off times at the Bellvista Blvd/Stornaway Ave roundabout. Maps of the proposed development (available HERE as a 1.62MB .pdf document) also indicates a lack of access from Stage 6 of Bellvista2 to Bellvista Market Place. The lack of access would mean traffic would then be directed to drive by Unity College which would be a major concern during school drop off and pick up times.
BeCA has invited Stockland to make a presentation on Bellvista2 at its next Public Meeting on May 9th. Stockland have indicated a desire to speak to Bellvista residents on the new proposal so make sure you don’t miss this Public Meeting. BeCA Public Meeting, May 9th, 6:45 pm, Land Sales Office, all welcome.
Luke’s IGA is underway with its Public Notice Board. BeCA has been offered an area on the noticeboard for its announcements and updates. This should ensure better access to information for residents who do not have internet access.
