    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.

    Free Stuff - can you help?

    Posted on: 22-08-2018

    A local resident is moving house on Friday 24th and has several items free for anyone to come and pick up. These items include:
    1) a large dining table custom built for us - a few marks on it but generally in good condition;
    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.

    Regards,
    Marlene and Mark

    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.

    Responsible Dog Owners

    Posted on: 21-03-2018

    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.

    Kind Regards,

    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.

    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.

    Committee Update - Ballot outcome

    Posted on: 15-01-2018

    Around 360 lot owners responded to the recent ballot. This fell well short of the numbers required to pass a Special Resolution.

    In November last year your Committee considered what action to take once the ballot results were known. The Committee decided that if the majority of owners who responded favoured a resolution (i.e. it failed purely on the basis that not enough owners responded), it was appropriate to ask VCAT to adjudicate.

    The resolution proposing that the OC fund Community Events saw a significant number of owners vote against it and has clearly failed.

    There was strong support for Resolutions 1, 2, and 3 – Lake Fountains, Water Features, and Irrigation. On this basis, these resolutions have been referred to VCAT.

    High Rain Forecast 1 December 2017

    Posted on: 30-11-2017

    Hi All,
    Waterways was designed to accommodate large upstream rainfall events by rises in water levels in the wetlands and decorative lakes. The design was checked against the 100 year ARI, and the 500 year ARI. ARI is a measure of how often a given rainfall will occur. In essence, Waterways is designed around quite dramatic water level increases during unusual rainfall events, however water should not encroach on residential lots in 100 year ARI events, and should not exceed house floor levels even in 500 year ARI events.

    The February 2011 event saw in excess of 150 mm of rain in the Braeside gauge, and similar levels upstream. Melbourne Water stated this was greater than a 100 year ARI event. Bowen Parkway was closed; streets in Waterways were covered in water. Whilst water entered some houses, this was due in most cases due to inadequate yard drainage.
    The current forecasts suggest the rainfall over the next few days could be similar to those experienced in 2011. Just how high the water levels go in Waterways will depend on the how much rain falls both locally and upstream. Since 2011 there have been works done both upstream and downstream of Waterways which should reduce the impact – however If we get 150 mm or more of rain over a couple of days Waterways will see significant rises in water levels.

    In 2011 a few houses suffered damage due to inadequate gutters, downpipes, and drainage. Some roads were covered with water, and there was damage to both public areas and private gardens. This was not a “flood – it was the designed response of the system to high water flows locally and upstream of Waterways. Water levels rose slowly, and fell quite soon after the rain stopped. No-one needed to be rescued; no-one needed to be evacuated. Waterways did not lose power.

    So what to expect.
    Lake levels could rise well over the jetty chains, the paths around the lakes would be covered, Bowen Parkway could close, and many streets in Waterways would have water at levels unsuitable for small cars. Take advice about not driving through water.
    I hope this is useful and allays some concerns.

    Survey Outcomes

    Posted on: 05-04-2017

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent survey. A whopping 343 responses were received out of a possible 754.

    There were several responses that could not be categorised into the four options (boxes left un-ticked, comments instead of a selection, creation of additional response categories, no address information etc.) and as such did not contribute to the overall metrics.

    Results will be used to shape this year’s budget and help steer transition communications and negotiations with Kingston City Council.

    Survey Item/Question Strongly Agree/Agree Strongly Disagree/Disagree
    Water Features: 84% 16%
    Fountains: 82% 18%
    Compliance: 72% 28%
    Irrigation: 71% 29%
    New Year’s Eve Fireworks: 61% 39%
    Christmas Event (incl. fireworks): 60% 40%

    Thanks again for helping to identify what is important to you all.

    At the Council meeting on 27th March, Council resolved as follows:-
    Item 10.5
    That Council:
    - Award Contract No. 16/112 Governor Road and Burdekin Boulevard Intersection, Braeside – Road Reconstruction and Traffic Signal Installation on a Lump Sum basis to CDN Constructors Pty Ltd, subject to receipt of the deed of release to the Section 173 Agreement, for the tendered price of $1,389,525.00 ex GST from the Developer contribution;
    - Approve a Contingency Allowance of $210,475 ex GST (15% of contract sum) from the developer contribution to cover unexpected financial variations; and

    Free clay/soil

    Posted on: 20-12-2016

    Hi All,

    A resident at Waterways has 2x trailer loads of soil/clay to get rid of and he is wondering if anyone is in need.
    If you would like to be put in touch with him, please let us know before Friday. Obviously there is only enough for a few people so it will be first in, first served.

    Thanks all,
