    Committee Update - Entrance Waterfalls Update

    Posted on: 24-11-2023

    Hi Folks,

    An update on our much loved and missed entrance waterfalls for Waterways.

    Quick recap - City of Kingston turned off the waterfalls some time ago as the waterfall pumps were at the end of their serviceable life, and to make matter worse tree roots have grown into the pipes that took water from the main lake. Repair these pipes would have been impractical due to the cost and need to dig up so much of the estate to find the leaks. City of Kingston wanted to decommission the waterfalls and replace with landscaping.

    Great news - the Waterways Owners Corporation Committee (WOCC) has reached an in principle agreement with City of Kingston to make the entrance waterfalls operational again. We will be upgrading the pumping equipment and connecting them to the mains water supply (for top up due to evaporation loss). What is even better is that City of Kingston will contribute $10k to the cost of this work, with the balance (tbc but less than $20k) from the WOCC. This will be funded from cash on hand with no increase to our annual levy.

    As you may know, the WOCC is governed by the Owners Corporation Act and we needed to confirm with the lawyers that we could actually do this. The further great news is that we indeed can, and in fact may replace or repair any existing amenities in the estate without the need for a special resolution - thanks to the legal precedent sent by the “Flew versus Lum” case some years ago.

    Whilst we work through the next steps with the City of Kingston we have made allowance in our FY24 budget for this work and ongoing maintenance.

    Our entrance waterfalls will flow again in 2024!!!!

    Just a reminder that we have vacancies on the WOCC if you would like to join us and help make our amazing suburb even better.

    Committee Update - Security

    Posted on: 11-06-2023

    Hi Folks,
    You may recall that WOCC engaged a private security firm, Once Blue, on a trial basis to provide night time security patrols over the Easter holiday period. In light of the disturbing criminal activity we’ve seen in the estate recently we wanted to share an update and some more positive steps WOCC is taking to protect all of our security.
    Once Blue performed 11 x 4 hour mobile patrols between 7th April and the 26th April. On 3 of those occassions they encountered suspicious activity between 2am and 4am, including a suspicious bmw with 2 men doing laps of the estate, a group of 10-12 teenagers gathering by 4 cars in the Nest car park, and other groups wandering the neighborhood. The groups were spoken to and had no reason to be in the estate and left when requested.
    The community feedback we’ve received has been very positive, with many people appreciating the peace of mind these patrols have given.
    Whilst these patrols won’t stop all crime, they will make Waterways a harder target, and hopefully encourage some of the bad guys to go elsewhere.
    As a result we are pleased to announce that we will be recommencing these security patrols next week and running an extended trial until the end of September. There will be no additional cost to lot owners as this is be funded by the WOCC’s operating budget.
    We will be surveying residents and monitoring the outcomes of these patrols. If community support remains high and we continue to see the benefit of the patrols, we will look to introduce a motion at the AGM in September to continue these patrols for the following year.
    Kind regards,
    Alex Martin

    Committee update - Security

    Posted on: 06-04-2023

    Hi folks,

    The Waterways Owners Corporation Committee (WOCC) is delighted to be able to give the community an update on two important security initiatives.

    Firstly, the long awaited joint venture between the WOCC and the City of Kingston (CoK) for the installation of solar powered security cameras at all the major points of ingress into the estate. You may recall that this project was approved to commence at the AGM before last, however the project has been slowly progressing.
    • Contracts have been drafted and had legal review
    • CoK have engaged a security design consultant to finalise the detailed plan - to be completed by end of April
    • CoK have completed site inspections and footing design for the security poles is underway
    • CoK and WOCC have agreed preferred locations to maximise the security benefit but also protect residents privacy
    • Cok have confirmed a project delivery plan, with all cameras expected to be installed before the end of the year.

    These CCTV cameras will make Waterways a less attractive target for criminals, help the Police gain convictions of offenders, and give us all some much needed peace of mind. We should also see our insurance premiums start to reduce as a result.

    However, the speed of this project has been slower than we would like and the recent spike in criminal activity in the estate has been of great concern to all of us. To bridge the timing gap between now and the CCTV project completing the WOCC has decided to take some additional immediate action.

    I am pleased to announce that from tonight, Thursday 6th April, a private security patrol company. Once Blue, will begin random security patrols of our estate. The patrols will help to detect and deter criminal behaviour, and they will liase with Police should suspicious activity be detected. We will work with the CoK to install security signage at the main car entry points to the estate in due course.I am also pleased to report that this service will not be at any additional cost to the owners of Waterways, and is being funded from our current operating budget.

    We wish all the residents of Waterways a safe and happy Easter break.

    Invitation to Join the Waterways Owners Corporation Committee - A Message from the OC Chairperson

    Posted on: 12-10-2022

    Folks, it is just one week until the Annual General Meeting for the Waterways Owner’s Corporation Committee, on Tuesday 18th October at 7pm

    We need your help!

    We currently have 4 energetic and positive people on the committee (Janine, Emilia, Simon and myself) working hard to make Waterways even better.

    However, we have 3 vacancies on the committee - this is where you come in.

    If you love Waterways, have some positive ideas and want to give back to our community then please consider joining us.

    We’re not the committee of old, we are all motivated to make some tangible difference and see some great amenity projects deliver real benefits.

    Our first project, the installation of Security Cameras as a joint venture with City Of Kingston is underway, with locations selected and contracts agreed.

    This project will make Waterways safer, less attractive to criminals, and give us all some peace of mind.

    We have other project that we want to kick off, including ideas such as:

    • Off-lead dog park on Melbourne Water land near the new freeway

    • Half court basketball court

    • Drinking fountains for humans and dogs around the main lake

    • And more….

    As joint venture projects with City of Kingston and Melbourne Water, and with community support, we can get things done.

    How much time do you need to commit? We have a 2 hour meeting every 6 weeks via zoom, and do most other things via email, with the odd coffee catchup at the Nest.

    If you want to take the lead on some of these projects then that would also be awesome - but what we most need is your positivity and ideas.

    Sound good? Then please email us at info@waterways.com.au and apply - we will accept applications right up to the AGM.

    Pedestrian Traffic Jams around Waterways

    Posted on: 31-08-2021

    Dear owners and residents,

    We hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine.

    It is great to see so many residents out and about on the walking paths at Waterways.

    We would like to request that if you are catching up with someone, or when residents are meeting up with neighbours to have a chat, that you please step off the path.

    This is to ensure the footpath is not blocked, and that other users like joggers, cyclists, parents with prams & pups are not having to step off the path.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards,

    Waterways Postal Ballot closing soon

    Posted on: 31-05-2020

    There is only one week remaining before the postal ballot period closes and there is still a large percentage of owners that we are yet to hear from.

    Your Committee has no vested interest in the outcome of the ballot. The purpose of the ballot is to determine the “voice of the people” and as such, matters of financial status and ballot signatories will not invalidate any lot owners ability to have their voice counted.

    Whilst the ballot closes on the 5th of June, the Committee recognises the strain on Australia Post delivery times and will apply a grace period of 4 business days for any mail caught in the delivery system.

    Once the ballot has closed, all votes will be tallied and the outcome will be published shortly thereafter.

    Reminder the AGM has been cancelled

    Posted on: 22-03-2020

    As the situation in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, your Committee has considered the position regarding the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for 25 March.

    Taking into account advice received from the Strata Community Association and the responsibility we all have to our community to try and limit any unnecessary exposure to the virus, especially in respect of the vulnerable members of our community who could be seriously impacted by it, the Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 AGM for the time being.

    The Committee will be back in touch as soon as possible in relation to a new date for the AGM and, in the meantime, intends to investigate whether the AGM could be held by other means if required.

    The Committee recognises that the community would like to discuss and consider the special business items that were included on the AGM agenda in relation to the proposed CCTV trial, commencement of VCAT proceedings to wind up the Owners Corporation and the funding of the 2020 Waterways community festival.

    The Committee has decided to move directly to a postal ballot in respect of the 3 special business items referred to above and will temporarily open the MyCommunity portal to allow community discussion on each of the issues while the postal ballot is open. Further details regarding the postal ballot will be communicated shortly.

    Committee update - Lake Fountains

    Posted on: 23-08-2019

    The existing fountains were installed by a company that is no longer in existence. They have been in operation since the beginning of the Waterways development and have required frequent costly maintenance during this time.

    The pumps now require major maintenance and parts replacement to restore them to working condition.

    The company that has provided this maintenance has submitted a quote for repairs that has raised concerns within committee about the cost.

    This contractor has intimate knowledge about the workings and structure of our system and to seek another quote to repair the fountains from another business that practices in this limited field would incur substantial costs for the OC before a pen was even put to paper.

    Our fountains have probably suffered from this high maintenance due to their operational profile to keep power costs acceptable.

    Your committee has decided to explore the economics of replacing the fountains before proceeding with the existing repair quote or authorising another quote at our expense.
    There has been engagement with two other businesses who are importers of fountains from the USA and have an extensive range of products in this field. Their products have long warranties, lower operating costs and are easier to maintain. Initial indications are encouraging, whilst we await more detailed proposals on like replacements or alternative fountains.

    There are very few companies working in this field in Australia and your committee is using all due diligence to get the best economic outcome for owners. Unfortunately, this painstaking work takes time.

    We will update you further when we have further information.

    2) A treadmill - good quality Horizon brand - that I used the other day with some cosmetic damage on the arms, but again in good condition;
    3) A large 6 man tent - vango brand - 1.25 to erect: well worth it for a family of 5 or 6 - has never leaked;
    4) a small credenza - perfect condition;
    5) A small coffee table - a few paint stains - ideal for kids play area;
    6) kids bike - around 7 year old size - slightly rusty chain - but again general in good condition.

    As I said in the title, there's no charge for anything. We were just hoping that someone else - with the space - could get some use out of these items rather than us throwing them in the rubbish.

    Mordialloc Bypass Update

    Posted on: 10-04-2018

    Received VIC Roads Correspondence Email;
    After talking with the local community, many of you made it clear you want a freeway to improve east-west and north-south connections, reduce delays and provide more reliable travel times . And we listened.

    The Victorian Budget 2018/19 will include $75 million to upgrade the Labor Government’s Mordialloc Bypass to a four-lane freeway, removing a further three sets of traffic lights from the current design.

    The $375 million project will cut 10-minutes off a trip between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and the Dingley Bypass.

    The freeway will connect the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Springvale Road in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village – creating a continuous freeway from Frankston to Clayton.

    The new freeway will have entry and exit ramp interchanges at Springvale Road, Governor Road, Lower Dandenong Road and Centre Dandenong Road.

    A new interchange will also be built at Thames Promenade, making it easier for drivers to access the new freeway.

    The new freeway will also be safer for cyclists and pedestrians with a shared path to be built along the entire length so they’re separated from traffic.

    The EES process and the assessments currently being undertaken are broad enough to cover the bypass becoming a freeway.

    Works are planned to start in 2019 and expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
    Watch our video to learn more about this exciting project.

    Dear Residents,

    Just a friendly reminder to dog owners that you must pick up your dog's droppings in public places when you go for a walk with your dog. Please make sure you have a plastic bag or "pooper scooper" with you to pick up any waste your dog leaves behind.

    Dog droppings carry disease and pollute our footpaths and local wetlands. Cleaning up after your dog helps keep our streets clean.

    I have attached the Victorian Law Foundation document regarding Dogs for owners to consider. Please note that local laws inforce rule for no cats alowed in the Waterways.

    Snake caught

    Posted on: 05-03-2018

    This metre long copperhead snake was caught in the backyard of 5 Dresden Drive early afternoon today.
    Raymond from Snakecarchers 0412 777211 responded within 30 minutes, had to search neighbours yards but found the snake behind the lemon tree at the opposite end to where his tail had been spotted disappearing into a low bush.

    Opposite parkland in a seemingly snakeproof yard, this is a reminder to be aware, particularly if children are playing outside.

    Thanks to Gordon and Linda Tippett for reporting this.

    Provision of Services - Committee update

    Posted on: 10-02-2018

    As previously advised, an application has been lodged with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) requesting the Tribunal’s review of the postal ballot special resolutions sought in respect of services related to the lake fountains, water features and irrigation.

    An initial Directions Hearing has now been scheduled for 7 March. The Committee will appoint external legal counsel to represent the OC at the Directions Hearing and in any subsequent hearings at the Tribunal. The purpose of a Directions Hearing is primarily to establish a proposed timetable for resolving the matter and the process for the conduct of the proceeding. If VCAT decides to continue exploring the merits of the OC’s application it may invite an appearance by any interested members of the community.

    The Committee will keep you informed as the matter progresses.
