BeCA is pleased to say that all is well and working 100% again on the BeCA website. There was an administrative problem which arose following the change of website host from almost 2 years ago now. One facet of the site wasn’t moved to the new hoster and remained with the former. No account was forwarded from the former hoster and so the domain name lapsed. We have managed to contact the previous host, get an account from them, pay it and after payment was eventually received, the domain name was reactivated.
We will now move management of the domain name to our current website host.
Now for an update from around the estates.
BeCA still has no updates to inform you of in regard to the new veloway. There are numerous culverts awaiting to be laid in the area just prior to the Arbour roundabout.
It has been reported to BeCA that a large number of non Bellvista, Bells Reach vehicles with car registration addresses outside of this area enter and leave the estates after 11pm on a weekend.
It is expected that further new areas of Baringa (Aura) will be opened for public access well before Christmas allowing people who have purchased blocks in these areas to at least be able to visit them. Many current areas with restricted access could be open for the public.
All is going according to plan for the second entry exit road opening. Residents should be able to use the new road sometime in January, well before school resumes for 2017.
BeCA is in contact with Stockland regarding foot access from the western side of Arbour into Baringa, the new shops, the Tavern and most importantly the school via the new bridge. The only footpath crossing the bridge is on the eastern side of Aura Blvd. Currently accessing this footpath can be difficult and would entail many residents needing to go out of their way to get to the schools etc. People tend to take the shortest route between A and B and under current planning this would mean crossing the new bridge on the roadway itself. (See the photo above).
Eventually there will be a duplicate road bridge with a safe to use footpath but the construction of this bridge seems years away at the moment. A temporary pathway would have to gain environmental approvals to cross the sensitive creek area, a costly and time consuming exercise. Stockland are considering what is the best way to go on this issue. Fortunately school access isn’t required for 12 months so there is plenty time for a satisfactory solution.
A malfunction in the photo copy machine at the office of Mark McArdle has put back the delivery of the final edition of “The Connector” by a couple of days. Residents should begin to see the December issue of the Newsletter in their letter boxes from sometime next week.
Much of the content of The Connector is lifted almost directly from this website. As the production time line for the newsletter can be lengthy, many of the articles you read in The Connector are therefore ‘old’ news. In this “Connector” a note is added to most items indicating when the information first appeared on the bellvista.com.au website.
It’s great to be back!
