SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the development application submitted for a 3 lot subdivision on land described as Lot 101 DP 1096139, Tantallon Road, Belgravia.

 

The application has been referred to the Environmental Services and Sustainability Council for determination due to the length of time the application has been held in abeyance with no concurrence forthcoming from the NSW Office of Water due to the application being deemed Integrated Development.

 

It is recommended that the application be refused.

 

Applicant: R.G.H. Investments Pty Ltd c/o:- Anthony Daintith Town Planning

Owner:      R.G.H. Investments Pty Ltd

Proposal:  3 lot subdivision

Location:   Lot 101 DP 1096139, Tantallon Road, Belgravia

Zone:         1(a) General Rural   

 

THE PROPOSAL

The proposal is for a three (3) lot subdivision of the subject site. Proposed Lot 1 will contain the existing homestead, rural sheds, dams and 17.6ha of vineyard, and have a total area of 51.5ha. The lot will retain access from Tantallon Road. Proposed lot 2 will have an area of approximately 158.9ha and contains the existing manager’s residence, a workers’ dwelling, farm sheds, dams and a 47.3ha of vineyard. Access will be via Tantallon Road and is existing. Proposed Lot 3 will have an area of approximately 15.5ha and contain a large dam (400ML) to supply the other proposed lots with water (via NSW Office of Water licencing approval) and is linked by an easement for water supply to the Bell River. Proposed Lot 3 is to be created for the purpose of providing water back to proposed Lots 1 & 2.

 

Site Map

 

 

BACKGROUND

The proposal was originally lodged with Council in May 2011.

 

The DA was deemed Integrated Development, with concurrence required from NSW Office of Water for water licensing requirements.

 

Given the length of time the Applicant had had to resolve issues with NSW Office of Water and that concurrence has not been forthcoming, it is recommended that Council refuse the Development Application.

 

Council has consistently contacted the applicant and NSW Office of Water (NOW) for regular updates during the intervening 1½ years. The issues relating to water licensing requirements still remain outstanding.

 

CONCLUSION

A Section 79C assessment of the development for a 3 lot subdivision was not undertaken as concurrence from NSW Office of Water has not been forthcoming. It is considered that the applicant has had sufficient time to discuss any outstanding issues with the NSW Office of Water. As the development is deemed to be integrated development, Council cannot issue consent if concurrence has not been granted by NSW Office of Water. As such, Council has no alternative other than to refuse the development application.

Recommendation

 

THAT the information be noted.

 

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

The Department of Planning and Infrastructure has released draft guidelines relating to the safety of awnings over public lands. The following information is provided by the department as a FAQs factsheet:

 

1. Why is the NSW Government issuing a draft circular about awnings?

The department is seeking the views of councils and the wider community on measures outlined in the draft circular to improve the safety of awnings over public areas, such as footpaths. The draft circular advises councils of the steps that they and building owners should take to identify potential safety issues related to awnings over public lands. It also seeks councils’ cooperation to ensure appropriate action is taken to avoid future risks of collapse.

 

2. Why has awning safety become an issue of concern?

The Deputy State Coroner raised concerns over awning safety in December 2010 after investigating the death of a man who was hit by an awning that collapsed during a storm. Since 1998, there have been 17 reported incidents of awnings collapsing in NSW. The Deputy Coroner’s report also raised three specific issues:

· council powers regarding public safety

· additional council powers under the Roads Act, and

· the nature of approvals required for awnings.

 

3. What standards already exist in relation to awning safety and what powers do councils have to ensure building owners comply with these standards?

An awning is part of a building and all buildings are required to meet the relevant construction standards in force at the time approval was sought for their construction. Councils already have the power to enforce compliance with such standards.

 

4. Do councils have the power to implement a program to monitor awning safety?

Yes. Councils have the ability to establish their own programs to monitor awning safety.

 

5. Why doesn’t the NSW Government introduce statewide standards to ensure new and existing awnings are safe?

State-based standards are unnecessary and would duplicate standards that apply under the National Construction Code (NCC). The NCC, which is referenced by NSW planning legislation, applies to new buildings and work on existing buildings.

 

6. What are building owners required to do in relation to awning inspections?

Under the draft circular, building owners are encouraged to have a professional engineer inspect awnings, especially if they are more than 10 years old. The results of these inspections and any resulting action are to be communicated to their local council as soon as possible.

 

7. When would the circular be finalised and issued to councils?

The exhibition period ended on 19 December 2012. After consideration of public submissions, it is expected the Circular will be finalised within weeks and issued to all councils.

Proposal: a new freestanding building 6m wide and 12m long to the rear of the existing Tom’s Garage building and Movie Poster Museum. The spaces include a roofed open area 6000x9500mm and an enclosed element consisting of a unisex toilet 1000x2500mm, a Unisex accessible toilet and a store 3000x2500mm.

 

The structure is set off the existing Museum building by 1500mm.

The materials include a concrete slab foundation and floor, cypress pine timber framing including 7 posts and galvanised iron cladding. The roof pitch will match that of the Tom’s garage Museum building and gable ends are illustrated. The forms refer to painted iron walls.

.

Comments

·      There is no reference to the demolition of any existing elements occupying the area where the new building is proposed;

·      The access doors into each of the toilets faces directly into the function space allowing no privacy;

 

Heritage impact Issues

Significance

·      The significance of the site lies within the uses, the social history and the traditional materials utilised in the buildings;

·      The Inventory describes in detail the significance and physical description of the Theatre but makes no mention of the Garage other than within the  Historical Notes where it notes that Allan Tom re-built the garage in 1940 from where among general duties he ran the NRMA service agency

·      The nature of the uses, structures and possible relics in the rear yard requires further review by the Trust and the Applicant

 

Proposal

·      The purpose of the proposal is to improve the number and quality of the amenities available to visitors to the site as these are currently limited. Visitors include both attendees for movie showings and visitors reviewing the Movie Poster collection. The structure in particular will provide a shaded space for groups in particular and for special functions to be held in conjunction with movie presentations. Improving the visitor experience should also increase visitor numbers and therefore allow for an increase in conservation works at the site thus enhancing the heritage significance;

·      The proposed location of the new structure appears to allow for access between the existing and new structures. Alternative locations would include to the rear and to the sides of the site and use of the structure to define an attractive, screened for privacy and sheltered outdoor landscaped space would appear to be criteria;

·      The materials are appropriate for the context established by the existing buildings and their industrial character;

·      The potential for relics beneath the proposed concrete slab needs to be reviewed and discussed.

·      The following aspects of the proposal could detract from the heritage significance:

The location may have an impact on previously unknown relics or structures in the vicinity;

Measures recommended to ensure that this will not detract from the heritage significance of the site include a series of local Interviews by Trust members to determine the history of that area of the site – the garage was re-built in 1940, a detailed site inspection including photos and then a Condition of Consent requiring that an appropriate archaeologist be on stand-by to identify any items revealed during the excavation for the Concrete slab.

·      The following recommendations are provided to ensure that the new works will be sympathetic with the character of the existing buildings and site and that the project will enhance the overall heritage significance of the property.

 

Recommendations

·      The concrete slab to include a slate or charcoal coloured oxide to ensure the appearance has a satisfactory character, is practical for cleanliness and non-glare;

·      Consider installing a standard baby change fitting in the accessible bathroom to provide a full range of amenities for users;

·      The timber posts to be ex 150mm square with stop chamfer details and recessed steel stirrups and fixings to maintain an appropriate traditional detail and to be provided with a clear or Grey stain finish as an appropriate finish which distinguishes them as new but traditional;

·      In view of summer heat conditions beneath the steel roof, consideration may be given to insulating beneath the roof sheeting and lining the insulation with mini-orb galvanised sheeting

·      Gutters to be standard galvanised half round on a painted timber fascia with galvanised steel circular downpipes and flashings to be ridge and barge roll types with spear points to the gables – all available from Fielders or similar

·      Review the layout so that the access doors to the toilets are screened from the general function space or provide a slatted stained timber privacy screen between the two. One option is to move the store room to the end and swap with the toilets. Then rotate the toilets so that they face into the setback space – a sketch is provided on the file for reference;

·      The access doors to be traditional timber boarded doors – new or recycled would be suitable

·      Consider solar grey rooflight sheeting above the three enclosed spaces for using daylight or use three appropriate timber framed double hung sliding sash windows;

·      Consider galvanised steel standard roof vents above each of the three spaces for natural ventilation;

·      For lighting in both the open and enclosed spaces use standard “Tin Coolie” fittings available from Recollections in Orange.

 

 

The consent authority is the NSW Heritage Council.

Prior to Council sending off the DA to the NSWHC it is recommended that the following changes are made so that there are minimum issues raised by the heritage Council which could delay the process:

·      Review the standard advice provided by Cabonne Shire to Applicants making a DA - available on the Council website, and add the missing details, some of which are noted below

·      Provide a standard title and drawing number for each of the drawings;

·      Provide the Lot/DP note on the site plan – the setback space between the existing and new and setback to boundaries

·      Add a north point to the site plan

·      Add names to each of the elevations – north, south east, west etc

·      Add a schedule of materials, colours and finishes to the elevation drawing

·      Make any changes to the plans – for example the toilet doors, wall thicknesses, after reviewing the comments and recommendations above and those from Allan Lindsay

·      Review the two alternatives for the open shed structure – all new materials: galvanised iron and cypress timber or recycled materials and provide a firm proposal on the drawings. If recycled materials are to be used, submit a set of photos of similar materials to indicate the intended character. Note the difficulties and costs in getting suitable materials plus a structural engineer to design and certify a project which includes a combination of new (Toilets) and recycled materials (the roof and timber frame)

 

5.0        Western Stores, 21 – 23 Bank Street, Molong

 

Attention: Heather and Amanda

·      A request has been put to the Molong Museum for early photos as these should form the basis for a colour scheme – no response has been received;

·      IMAG0179Missing tiles need to be replaced with matching tiles available from Obsolete Tiles Tel. 02 9534 6308– Price Tiles tel. 02 95606022

·      IMAG0178

The soffit/Ceiling is hazardous and needs to be restored. Check the gutter and drainage as this may be the cause of the damage.

 

IMAG0176

The end panel needs to be clad in fibre-cement sheet with mouldings to the joints to match the other panels.

 

IMAG0175

 

The central column should be clad either in black colourback glass or mirror. Both are traditional.

IMAG0174

 

The pier needs to be clad in fibre cement sheet with perimeter mouldings to match the existing. The Monel shopfront trim mouldings are available from Modclad 029789066

 

IMAG0173

 

This short term temporary steel post is to be removed after remedial structural repairs are completed to the awning structure, drainage and suspension rods. It presents a hazard to pedestrians, vehicles and the structure – were it hit by a vehicle it could pull down the structure and the masonry facade.

 

IMAG0171

 

Remove redundant sign fixings and make good the awning face prior to painting. Relocate the lights so that they are evenly spaced along the length of the awning soffit – adding extra as required to ensure an even level of illumination.

 

IMAG0170

 

The general shopfront – a very impressive glazed facade. Colours to be advised for the overhead hamper panel area, the soffit and wall panels. Patch and clean the black ceramic tiles.

 

IMAG0172

 

Restore the edge trim to the awning face

 

Upon completion of quotes, an application should be made to council for funding support from the Local Heritage Fund.

 

 

The steel post is presumed to be a temporary prop.

 

A structural Engineering report is required on the problems with the structure and what works are required to repair the awning and allow the prop to be removed. Consult Anton Lynar or another unless advice has already been obtained. Tel. 0263 625 551

 

The Colour Scheme

The existing pale green colour scheme is unlikely to be based on paint scrapings, early photos but of course it may be.

 

The streamlined style of the building was intended to be strikingly modern and in the standard off white of the day. This is to be emphasised by the expensive and beautiful metal framed shopfronts and colour back glass. The shopfronts in black and white were also used in the Wellington Store and there are also some in Canowindra.

 

Dulux Lime White is the recommended colour with Pascol Aircraft Grey to be used on the lettering and raised elements which are currently green

 

Please enquire at the Historical Society to obtain copies of early street photos to illustrate the building.

 

The awning faces to be standard Black and the awning soffit to be Dulux Pale Vellum.

 

The wall panels above the shopfronts to be Aircraft Grey

Coffee shop at 23 Belmore Street, Cargo

Contact: David Stedman

Attention: Amanda

.

Significance

·      The site adjoins a heritage item, the Cargo hotel/tavern

·      The site includes a traditional commercial building incorporating a retail premises. The building retains the original character and complements the streetscape.

Proposal

·      The exciting new business is to trade as Rustic Notions.

·      It will provide food and beverages, crafts, art and tourism events

·      A series of unmarked photos are provided: One indicates the street frontage and shows a four post skillion roof verandah, a glazed shopfront and painted dark red facade with stepped parapet. The pair of entry doors appears to be black painted timber.

·      The fourth photo shows the streetscape with shop including striped verandah roof adjoining the cottage.

·      Other photos appear to show the street setting viewed from the shop and a fenced yard

·      The second photo shows an assumed rear garden elevation with ad hoc verandah off a brick rear elevation

·      Examples of graphics and signs are provided

·      An example of internal timber shop display fittings is provided

·      A floor plan illustrates a layout;

Steps appear to prevent the shop having an accessible entry however an accessible entry will be required at the front of the premises. One option appears to be to locate the ramp on the verge in front of the adjoining garden side to reach the verandah floor level

No further comments on the shop layout other than the observation that 1650mm is wider than would normally be regarded as efficient in a service area where 1400mm would usually be provided allowing one staffer to easily reach both counters/service areas without taking a step.

·      Other recommendations:

Check out your nearest Historical society and Local History book and locate early photos of cargo and nearby businesses. These could inspire some good traditional graphics, fonts, colour/design schemes and lettering

The photos show how difficult it is to achieve a transparent shopfront – very important for visitors as a clear invitation to enter. Strong traditional lighting will be required in the areas shown on plan as window displays with light coloured backgrounds and striking window dressing

Subject to heritage photos, consider placing three simple framed sign panels 350mm deep between the four posts – note the changes in the chamfers which indicate that some form of sign or shading valence occupied these spaces historically

A well designed sign placed symmetrically in the rectangular panel on the facade is a must given the stepped form plus a standard tin Coolie light fitting at the apex!

The building is way too red. Change the verandah posts and window surrounds to Dulux Deep Bronze Green and the gutter to red. Change the soffit of the verandah to Dulux Sage Green...some softness to reduce the glare

·      Further advice on matters heritage architectural and touristic available on request including a site visit.
