Dear BPPA member, you would have received a letter from the Yorke Peninsular Council within the last few days detailing a Proposal to Rezone Land at Black Point. The review is linked to the pending introduction of a new Planning System for South Australia which is intended to be implemented across Regional Councils by late 2019. BPPA committee will be making a submission and involved in ongoing discussions with Council regarding the review and any impact it may have on our community at Black Point. To ensure your concerns are taken on board, could you please give your feedback to any committee member or by email by 30th May 2019. This will allow the committee to respond to Council by the June 30th deadline. We would also encourage individual submissions to be made direct to Council as part of their consultation process.
Further information can be obtained on pages 182 and 209 of the attached YP Council Development Plan and a history of the development of Black Point is contained in the Community Engagement Report.

REVIEW OF ZONING OF LAND AT BLACK POINT/PINE POINT
A LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN
YORKE PENINSUL COUNCIL – NEW BIN ROLL-OUT
See attached Council Communication advising of the replacement procedure of the red & yellow waste & recycle bins by SUEZ with the new bins scheduled to be delivered to Black Point on January 15th & 16th.
The BPPA have contacted the Council with several concerns about the process which include;
The short notice.
The possibility that Black Point properties may not have rate payers in residence to place bins roadside.
That bins may be collected for recycling with 2020 BPPA Membership stickers attached.
That bins collected may be collected with bin locks or latches attached.
In response, SUEZ, (the waste bin contractors) in consultation with the contractors who will collect the old bins, have offered to collect Black Point bins last.
Therefore, Black Point bins will need to be left roadside from Monday the 24th of February 2020 to allow for the pickup of the old waste & recycle bins over the following 2 weeks without BPPA 2020 bin stickers & any lock or latches & no rubbish within.
PLEASE ENSURE NO RUBBISH IS PLACED IN YOUR OLD BINS AFTER YOU RECEIVE YOUR NEW BINS OR THE BINS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED BY THE CONTRACTORS.
We thank Yorke Peninsula Council, SUEZ & the contractors for considering our concerns.
