At last some positive news regarding action on Cove infrastructure with the following advice received from MidCoast's Manager Operations South (via Councillor Len Roberts) regarding planned works for The Esplanade East and Water Street:

What has happened to the money previously allocated for infrastructure in the Cove? That is the mystery!

And it is a timely question after a week of storms with drains overflowing and roads covered in debris. In expressing our concerns about the risks to our Village from proposed merger back in April 2016 we wrote:

The North Arm Cove Residents Association has worked hard over many years to gain the attention of Great Lakes Council in order to gain community facilities for our village and attention to our roads and drainage needs. We

November 2017 has now passed us  by, but sadly the frequently promised construction and sealing of The Esplanade East has again failed to materialise.

But at least the ratepayers of the Cove Community  can feel comforted knowing that:

You may not need a microscope but a magnifying glass is beneficial when searching for mentions of North Arm Cove in the Capital Works proposal presented to this week's Council Meeting.

In the report for September-November 2017, we find that construction and sealing of The Esplanade (East) is scheduled to occur this November. This project was allocated Federal "Roads to Recovery" funding back in 2014.

In response to questions from the Residents Association, Council has this week provided advice on what Cove roads and drainage projects are to be funded in the 2017-18 works program.


In February 2013 following some significant storm events, the Association invited residents to contribute to a list to send to Council of significant road and drainage problems in the Cove. Before Council had a chance to reply to the Association, we had the extended torrential downpour of 1 March that year which caused significant flooding and damage to many properties. Shortly after, Council undertook some...

Advice has just been received that the RFS HQ has pulled funding from the proposed linking of the two sections of The Esplanade. The remaining work planned for the Community Hall will however be funded.

Not so slow in the Cove

January 2015 in the Cove has been a busy one for public works.

Work began very early preparing the southern portion of Eastslope Way for sealing and this work has continued throughout the month.

Council's Manager of Parks and Recreation, Andrew Staniland and Senior Design Officer, Ashley Carlson met with members of the Cove's Boat Ramp and Water Access subcommittee to discuss Council's designs for hand-launching ramps at Water Street and Casuarina Park Reserves.

The announcement by Federal Member Bob Baldwin of $4.5 million in Roads to Recovery funding over five years has been welcomed by Great Lakes council's Director of Engineering, Ron Hartley.

This is good news for the Cove as one of the roads that will benefit from this funding is The Esplanade. When, during the five years of funding, this work will be scheduled is as yet uncertain.

The southern end of Eastslope Way, North Arm Cove has already been scheduled for upgrading this year using existing funding.

Let's build a listdougkThu, 07/02/2013 - 7:58am

The Residents Association is building two lists for Council: identifying the Cove's worst Drainage problems and worst Road problems. Add your comment to this article identifying the location of serious drainage or road problems that you think should be addressed by Council.

The weeks of heavy rain would have highlighted which drains can't handle heavy downpours. Tell us the ones which have affected you. Which sections of our roadways do you think are in greatest need of repair?

Residents will have noticed that improvements have been carried out to "that bend" on North Arm Cove Road, and that a "pot-hole filling" exercise is under way. We have Jamie Condie, Works Engineer, Tea Gardens to thank for this. After concerns were expressed at the December General Meeting of the Residents Association about the proximity of the guide posts to the tar on this bend, ...
