Ward was engaged to upgrade the existing facilities at Church Point while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of the area. In 2009, Pittwater Council (now Northern Beaches Council) had adopted a comprehensive Plan of Management and associated Masterplan for Church Point. The main concern identified was the lack of car parking. To address this issue, a number of options were considered and extensive community consultation was undertaken. In December 2013, Council resolved to adopt a project for a single deck car park with 120 spaces.
