SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the modification application submitted for subdivision of land described as Lot 31 DP 130510, 4 Speedy Street, Molong.

 

The modification application has been referred to the Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee for determination as the Development Application was considered and approved at Council’s Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee Meeting held 5th November 2012.

It is recommended that the application be approved subject to conditions of consent.

 

Applicant: Lorna Boucher c/- Geolyse

Owner:      Lorna Burcher

Proposal:  Four (4) lot subdivision

Location:   Lot 31 DP 130510, 4 Speedy Street, Molong

Zone:         1(c) Rural Small Holdings & R5 Large Lot Residential

 

THE PROPOSAL

 

Council approval is sought to modify Development Application 2012/169 for subdivision of 4 Speedy Street, Molong. The development application was submitted to Council’s Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee Meeting as the subdivision does not satisfy the building setbacks under DCP No. 6 Rural Small Holdings. The development application was recommended for approval.

 

The proposed subdivision will result in two allotments containing an existing dwelling each, one allotment containing an existing colorbond shed with brick shop front, and one vacant allotment suitable for residential development.

Subdivision as approved 5 November 2012.

 

Lot

1.   Area

2.   10

3.   4540m² - contains existing dwelling and outbuilding

4.   11

5.   4410m² - contains existing pottery shed and outbuildings

6.   12

7.   4170m² - contains existing abandoned dwelling

8.   13

9.   1.34ha – proposed dwelling site and derelict shed(s)

 

Proposed modified subdivision for determination on 3 September 2013.

 

10. Lot

11. Area

12. 11

13. 4023m² - contains existing sheds

14. 12

15. 5963m² - contains existing dwelling

16. 13

17. 4757m² - contains existing abandoned dwelling & shed

18. 14

19. 1.2ha – vacant

 

 

Lot size and shape

The original plan of subdivision had generally regular lot shapes. However, as a result of modification, the amended lot boundary between proposed lots 11 & 13 is configured to accommodate an existing shed in accordance with the BCA requirements for boundary setbacks (900mm).

The area of proposed lot 12 has also been increased to accommodate landscaping along the Mitchell Highway to act as a buffer around residential development. 

Modification includes some minor adjustment of lot boundaries as indicted in the amended plans submitted to Council. Modification includes the following:-

 

1.   Adjustment of lot boundaries between lots 11 and 13 to accommodate the existing brick storage shed and tanks.

2.   Demolish the existing sheds between proposed lots 11 and 12 and move the boundary south to achieve the minimum 10m setback from the existing cottage as required under condition 6 of DA 2012/169.

3.   Increase the size of proposed lot 12 by encroaching on proposed lot 14 to enable the owner to manage the interface with the Mitchell Highway (landscaping etc).

 

All lots gain vehicular access to Speedy Street. No lots will gain legal access to Market Street (Mitchell Highway). Access to proposed Lot 12 will be via a Right of Carriageway over proposed Lot 14. There are no changes to access as a result of modification of the proposal.

 

The applicant also proposes to stage the development, releasing proposed lots 11 and 12 as stage 1, with proposed lots 13 and 14 to be released subsequently as stage 2. Despite this, there will be no conditions for staging the development as each lot may be released at the applicants discretion, given the relevant conditions of consent have been fulfilled.

MATTERS FOR CONSIDERATION

In accordance with Section 96(1A) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 the proposed modification is of minimal environmental impact and is substantially the same development for which consent was granted.

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT s79C(1)(a)(i)

 

Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991 (Amended)

The subject land is zoned 1(c) Rural Small Holdings under the provisions of the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 1991. The subdivision of land zoned 1(c) Rural Small Holdings is considered to be permissible with consent from Council under the provisions of Clause 9 of the Cabonne LEP 1991.

 

Objectives of the 1(c) zone

The objective of the zone is “to promote development of land identified as suitable for rural residential or hobby farm development”.

The proposal is consistent with the 1(c) zone objectives.

 

 Clause 10:

The proposal will not adversely impact its timber reserves or require additional infrastructure to support the proposal. There is no change to the existing or proposed use of the land. The site is in close proximity to limestone outcrops however the area is not subject to any know mining or exploration activity.

 

Clause 11:

2(a)   The primary purpose for each proposed lot is to be for rural residential/hobby farm development. No other intended purpose for the subdivision is proposed.

2(b) Proposed Lot 13 is to be created primarily as a lifestyle allotment but may have opportunity for use for limited agricultural purposes.

2(c)   Proposed Lot 11 contains a structure however it has no approval for residential purposes. A suitable building envelope will need to be included on the subdivision plan. Proposed Lot 13 indicates a building envelope for a future dwelling.

2(d)   Proposed Lots 12 and 13 contain existing dwellings.

 

The proposed development is consistent with the provisions of Clause 11.

 

Clause 16:

The proposed subdivision meets the minimum lot size criteria of 0.4ha per lot.

(1A), (1B) and (1C) do not apply to the proposed subdivision.

2(a)   Constraints to the development site include proximity to the Mitchell Highway, proximity to the Molong Sewerage Treatment Plant and proximity to limestone karst.

2(b)   The proposed development allows for three additional rural residential lots.

2(c)   The site is not connected to reticulated water services however any DA for a future dwelling would be required to provide a minimum of 90 000 litres water storage.

2(d)   The development site may be affected by karst. Council needs to be certain that the site is not only capable of disposing of on-site waste but also there is no potential for groundwater contamination as a result of the additional on-site wastewater management system. The applicant has undertaken an on-site effluent study for the development which indicates that appropriate systems could be accommodated on-site to provide adequate disposal of effluent without impacting upon the existing groundwater system.

2(e)   Access to the subdivision is to be from Speedy Street. The road standard is considered suitable for the proposed additional volume of traffic for the development.

2(f)    Other services and social services would not be effected or impacted upon by the addition lots.

2(g)   The proposed development, if approved, will not have an adverse impact upon adjoining land, major roads or utility services.

2(h)  The land is within close proximity to the Molong Sewerage Treatment Plant. A separation buffer of 400m is recommended by state government agencies as an adequate distance between a sewerage treatment plant and any future development. It is noted the proposed building envelope for Lot 13 is within 200m of the Sewerage Treatment Plant. Future development of the allotment will need to include an assessment of odour impact.

2(i)    The area will retain its character for rural residential and hobby farm development.

2(j)    The additional lots will be used for rural residential purposes only. There is no change from the existing use of the land.

 

The proposal is generally consistent with the provisions of Clause 16.

 

Clause 21  - Development along arterial roads

The subject land is located adjacent to the Mitchell Highway and there is are several existing vehicular farm access ways from the land to the highway. The RMS require that no access to provided to the highway and that all vehicular access to the subdivision (including access to proposed lots 10 and 12) be obtained off Speedy Street.  A condition of consent addresses this matter and requires all existing gateways / driveways servicing the property to the highway be removed.

 

REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PLANS

There are no Regional Environmental Plans that apply to the subject land.

 

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

Cabonne Council is identified within the SEPP 44 schedule as having koala habitat.  The applicant has not addressed the SEPP; however, the subject land is generally cleared and the proposed development will not impact upon any existing vegetation.  There are no known sightings of koalas in the locality, or sources of koala habitat.

State Environmental Planning Policy (Rural Lands) 2008 applies to the land.

 

Cl 7: The proposal is not considered to be unsympathetic with the principles listed in Part 2 of the SEPP.

Cl 8: The proposal is generally consistent with the rural subdivision principles. Sub-clause (d) requires Council to consider the natural and physical constraints of the land. This site may be constrained for future development due to its proximity to the highway, the sewerage treatment plant   and the underlying issue of karst.

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN s79C(1)(a)(iii)

 

Development Control Plan 6 – Rural Small Holdings applies to this land. The proposal is not inconsistent with the provisions of the DCP.

Clause 4.2(vii) requires that dwellings be sited at least 20m from a boundary to facilitate privacy and to create a fire hazard reduction zone around buildings. A lesser setback may be considered for low risk allotments having an area of less than 2ha. A separate policy requires a minimum setback of 20m from a road frontage for dwellings located upon rural or rural residential land.

Proposed Lot 11 fronts Speedy Street and an existing colorbond shed with brick facade occupies the frontage of the site with a storage shed attached. The combined structure spans approximately 28m of the 44m wide proposed allotment. The main section of the building is setback 2m from the front boundary and appears to have been used for pottery production/sales. The building does not comply with DCP 6 in regard to setback from boundaries and as such the development application was determined at the Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee on 5 November 2012. The development application was approved subject to conditions of consent.

 

It is suggested that a separate building envelope be identified within the proposed lot 11 to accommodate a future a dwelling. The existing pottery shed could be demolished to ensure the visual amenity of the subdivision is established.  An exiting shed located at the rear of the proposed allotment (accommodating 3 smaller attached buildings) was originally going to be demolished however the amended lot boundary goes around this structure therefore it no longer requires demolition.

 

The area appears to have previously accommodated a pottery shop and café, the latter probably housed on site in a railway carriage (since removed from the property). Evidence of landscaping and building footings remain on site. Also on site is a timber gaol room – a c1850s police building. A modern sign attached to the structure indicates the structure was originally sited at Manildra. The Heritage Advisor has inspected the structure, and indicated that the building was original and of at least local heritage significance, warranting careful conservation. Condition 11   Conservation of items of local heritage significance will remain on the amended conditions of consent to ensure the subdivision does not impact previous assessment of heritage significance.

 

An abandoned dwelling exists upon proposed lot 12 and it is proposed to adjust the boundary between proposed lots 11 and 12 to accommodate the minimum 10m setback from the boundary to the dwelling, as per condition 6 of DA 2012/169.

 

A building envelope has been identified for proposed Lot 14. This building envelope is adequate to accommodate future development, subject to satisfactory on-site waste disposal. It must be noted two existing sheds are still located within the proposed access corridor of the allotment and will need to be demolished to enable the development to proceed and several mature trees will need to be removed from the site to enable construction of the access driveway.

 

PROVISIONS PRESCRIBED BY THE REGULATIONS s79C(1)(a)(iv)

The proposal does not contravene the relevant provisions of the regulations.

 

THE LIKELY IMPACTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT s79C(1)(b)

 

Siting /location

No change from previous assessment.

 


Lot size and shape

The original plan of subdivision had generally regular lot shapes. However, as a result of modification, the amended lot boundary between proposed lots 11 & 13 is configured to accommodate an existing shed in accordance with the BCA requirements for boundary setbacks (900mm).

 

The area of proposed lot 12 has also been increased to accommodate landscaping along the Mitchell Highway to act as a buffer around residential development. 

 

Visual amenity

No change from previous assessment.

Public Authority Consultation

The development application was referred to the RMS and Cabonne Council Engineering and Technical Services Department - as owner and operator of the Molong Sewerage Treatment Plant. The proposed modification was not required to be referred to any public authority consultant for a second time. 

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT THAT HAS BEEN PLACED ON EXHIBITION s79C(1)(a)(ii)

 

The Cabonne LEP 2012 was in draft format at the time the development application was submitted to Council. The proposed subdivision is permissible within the provisions of the plan.

 

DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTIONS

No contributions apply to the development.

 

ANY SUBMISSIONS MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ACT s79C(1)(d)

The proposed modification is not advertised development.

The development application was neighbourhood notified for a period of 14 days with no submissions being received. The proposed modification is of minimal impact and was not required to be re-notified.

 

PUBLIC INTEREST s79C(1)(e)

The proposed modified development is considered to be of minor interest to the wider public due to the relatively localised nature of potential impacts. 

 

CONCLUSION

The proposed modification relates to the four (4) lot subdivision of land described as 4 Speedy Street, Molong. In accordance with Section 96(1A) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 the proposed modification is of minimal environmental impact and is substantially the same development for which consent was granted. The proposed development is permissible within the zone and complies with relevant provisions of the Cabonne LEP 1991.

SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the development application submitted for Industry (Steel Fabrication) and Alterations and Additions to Existing Car Repair Station on Lot 2 Section 3 DP 758221, Robinson Street, Canowindra.

 

The development was advertised and neighbour notified for the required 14 day period. Five (5) submissions were received during the advertising/notification period raising concerns about access, traffic, noise, hours of operation, the type of proposed operation and its suitability in a predominantly residential area. The proposal has been assessed in accordance with the relevant planning provisions and is recommended for approval subject to conditions of consent.

 

Applicant:          Gregory Kenneth Wythes

Owner:               MD & JE Wythes

Proposal:           Industry (Steel fabrication) and Alterations and Additions to Existing Car Repair Station  

Location:            Lot 2 Section 3 DP 758221, Robinson Street, Canowindra

Zone:                  2(v) Village or Urban

 

The DA was lodged in April 2012 for alterations and extensions to the existing workshop. Assessment of the DA is under the provisions of CLEP 1991 being the instrument in force at the time of lodgement.

 

THE PROPOSAL

The proposal relates to the use of an existing site within the village zone of Canowindra for the purposes of Industry (Steel Fabrication) and Car Repair Station (Rural machinery repairs). The proposal also seeks consent for alterations and additions to the existing on-site shed.

 

The proposed development indicates hours of operation as being 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday. No work will be undertaken on Saturdays, Sundays or public holidays. Employee numbers are anticipated at between two (2) and four (4) staff. Five (5) parking spaces will be provided and located on-site with one space dedicated for disabled access. Truck movements are anticipated as on average of one (1) movement per week (for delivery). Two (2) to three (3) additional movements are anticipated each day. All vehicles entering and exiting the site to and from Robinson Street will be in a forward direction. No painting or spray painting will take place on site. No details have been given for the existing business operation (repair of farm machinery) for hours of operation, or vehicle movements.

 

Waste steel will be collected in steel scrap bins and collected by recyclers on an as needs basis. Any waste oil will be collected in waste oil bunds and collected by a waste oil merchant.

The proposal also includes shed extensions for an 11.8m x 14.960m x 4.185m open awning to the eastern side of the shed/workshop and a 8.0m x 12.550m x 4.8m enclosed extension to its southern side. Site coverage has increased from approximately 222m² (with existing office, amenities and workshop area) to approximately 499m² (to include new workshop area and awning). These areas indicate that site coverage for the proposed development has more than doubled.  A concrete panel retaining wall to the western side of the allotment approximately 2.0m high is also proposed. Materials for the extensions are proposed to use colorbond wall cladding, fascia, guttering and roofing to match existing materials. 

 

THE SITE

 

The subject site is located on the northern side of Robinson Street approximately 140m to the west from its intersection with Milton Street. The site has an area of approximately 2023m² with existing access from Robinson Street. The site has an existing shed that has been used by the owners for farm machinery repairs. The surrounding land use is residential. The site is Zoned 2(v) Village or Urban under the provisions of the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991.

 

Site Map

 

 

 

BACKGROUND

 

The applicant had indicated that the site and existing shed/workshop has been used for mechanical and farm machinery repairs. A search of Council’s records has failed to find any approval for the use of the shed for the purposes of car repair station as defined by the definitions of the Model Provisions 1980. In addition, Council however, also acknowledges that there is no record of complaints pertaining to this site for noise, hours of operation, access and/or traffic. The existing shed on the site was approved via BA 183/90 on 25 September 1990.

 

Settlement Strategy

The proposed development was submitted prior to the issue of the Section 65 Certificate for the Draft Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012 and as such no assessment against the draft provisions is required. Despite this, the Cabonne Settlement Strategy 2012 identifies this site and the surrounding locality to be zoned R1 General Residential. The strategy also highlights the need for Canowindra to move towards complex zoning to reduce incompatible land use conflicts. As such, the strategy further highlights appropriate areas within Canowindra to be zoned for industrial activities. The CLEP 2012 was gazetted on 18 January 2013 and identifies the subject land as R1 General Residential with a specific industrial zone in north Canowindra.

 

MATTERS FOR CONSIDERATION

 

Section 79C of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 requires Council to consider various matters, of which those pertaining to the application are listed below.

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT s79C(1)(a)(i)

Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991 (Amended)

 

Clause 9:

 

The subject land is zoned 2(v) Village or Urban under the provisions of the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 1991. The use of the site for the purposes of Industry (Steel Fabrication) and Car Repairs on land zoned 2(v) is considered to be permissible with consent from Council under the provisions of Clause 9 of the Cabonne LEP 1991.

 

Under the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Model Provisions 1980

 

"industry" means:

(a) any manufacturing process within the meaning of the Factories, Shops and Industries Act 1962 , or

(b) the breaking up or dismantling of any goods or any article for trade or sale or gain or as ancillary to any business,

but does not include an extractive industry and

 

car repair station means a building or place used for the purpose of carrying out repairs to motor vehicles or agricultural machinery not being:

 

(a) Body building

(b) Panel beating which involves dismantling, or

(c)  Spray painting other than of a touching-up character

 

As such the proposal would be best defined as industry and car repair station for the purposes of this development.

 

Objectives of the 2(v) Village or Urban Zone

 

The objective of the zone is “promote development in existing town and villages in a manner which is compatible with their urban function”.

 

The proposal is for the use of the existing site for the purposes of industry (steel fabrication) and car repair station (repair of farm manchinery) and is not considered to be inconsistent with the provisions of the LEP or the objectives of the 2(v) zone.

 

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

 

There are no State Environmental Planning Policies that relate to the subject land or the proposed development.

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT THAT HAS BEEN PLACED ON EXHIBITION s79C(1)(a)(ii)

 

The Development Application was lodged prior to the issue of the S65 Certificate for the Draft Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012 and as such no assessment of the draft provisions is required. The subject land is zoned R1 – General Residential under the draft planning provisions. The objectives of the General Residential Zone are:

·    To provide for the housing needs of the community

·    To provide for a variety of housing types and densities

·    To enable other land uses that provide facilities or services to meet the day to day needs of residents

 

It should be noted that land uses for the purposes of industry and vehicle repair station are prohibited under the draft planning provisions. The definitions of these land uses under the standard instrument are as follows:-

 

Vehicle repair station means a building or place used for the purpose of carrying out repairs to, or the selling and fitting of accessories to, vehicles or agricultural machinery, but does not include a vehicle body repair workshop or vehicle sales or hire premises.

 

Industry means any of the following:

(a) General industry;

(b) Heavy industry;

(c)  Light industry;

but does not include:

(d) Rural industry; or

(e) Extractive industry; or

(f)   Mining

 

Industrial activity means the manufacturing, production, assembling, altering, formulating, repairing, renovating, ornamenting, finishing, cleaning, washing, dismantling, transforming, processing, recycling, adapting or servicing of, or the research and development of, any goods, substances, food products or articles for commercial purposes, and includes any storage or transportation associated with any such activity.

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN s79C(1)(a)(iii)

 

No development control plans are applicable for the site.

 

PROVISIONS PRESCRIBED BY THE REGULATIONS s79C(1)(a)(iv)

 

As a draft condition of consent the applicant will be required to submit a Fire Safety Schedule addressing issues of portable fire extinguishers and emergency lighting.

 

THE LIKELY IMPACTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT s79C(1)(b)

 

Context and Setting:

 

The subject site appears to have been used for industrial type purposes for the past 25 years. The applicant has implied the site has been used by the owner to repair mainly agricultural machinery on site. It should be noted that a search of Council records has not located a development approval for the site for repair of agricultural machinery or motor vehicles. Approval was granted for the existing shed via BA 183/90 dated 25 September 1990. The surrounding locality is predominantly residential, however conditions of consent should enable impacts to be minimised. It should be noted that alternate sites have been investigated by the applicant/developer within Canowindra for the proposed development.

 

Access, Transport and Traffic:

 

Access to the site is identified as being via Robinson Street. The Development Engineer has assessed the existing access and determined that it does not meet Council’s current specifications and as such will be required to be upgraded. A draft condition has been included to address the access upgrade.

 

The Development Engineer has also assessed the proposal in relation to car parking, vehicles movements, traffic generation and on-site manoeuvring. Appropriate conditions have been imposed to address compliance for the proposed development in relation to these aspects of traffic development.

 

Proposed vehicle movements for the development include a single delivery of steel per week with the largest vehicle being a semi-rigid truck. Additional deliveries will be up to two (2) extra per week via a courier service and will be for small deliveries if required. Additional movements are anticipated by the applicant being 2-3 per day. Vehicle movements for the existing operation have not been provided. The proposed development is not considered to result in a significant increase in the volume of traffic associated with the development or traffic generated within the locality. The Applicant has indicated that proposed development will have two (2) to four (4) employees. Employee and customer parking is proposed on-site to the south of the proposed shed extension for a total of five (5) car spaces, one (1) of which will be designated disabled parking. The development is expected to generate on average one (1) truck movement per week, with a maximum of 2-3 vehicle movements per day. Further, the existing road system can accommodate the traffic generated from the proposed development.

 

All vehicles and trucks will enter and exit the site via Robinson Street. The applicant does also indicate the use of the laneway. This road is identified as a crown road and as such any maintenance and use of this laneway/road would require consent from the crown. A condition of consent has been included addressing these requirements. Due to the condition of the laneway Council will require the primary access for the development site to be via Robinson Street.

 

Noise Generation:

 

The main machinery involved in the manufacturing process and farm machinery repairs is welders, grinders and a forklift. These would be operated within the buildings. Regular use of such machinery may be intrusive to the surrounding locality and as such may be out of character for a predominantly residential area. Noise emission is regulated under the provisions of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 and is included as a condition of consent requiring compliance. Concerns regarding potential noise from the development have been identified by objectors. As Council is the authority for noise issues under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act, a condition of consent has been included requiring the applicant to undertake a noise assessment to determine a benchmark for current noise operational levels. 

 

Noise generated by traffic in this instance would be considered satisfactory due to the relatively small vehicle numbers projected to access the site. No traffic movements are permitted outside of operating hours.

 

Utilities:

 

The site is currently connected to reticulated water and sewerage. The development proposal does not require any alterations to the existing connections on the site.

 

Power and telecommunication are available on the site and any requirements for the upgrade of these services will be at the full cost to the applicant.

 

Heritage:

 

The subject land is not listed as a heritage item in Schedule 1 of the Cabonne LEP 1991, and is not identified as an area of heritage conservation. In addition, the site is not in close proximity to any items of environmental heritage.

 

Visual Amenity:

 

The site is located within the existing village zone. Surrounding land uses are predominantly residential. Site coverage has increased from approximately 222m² (with existing office, amenities and workshop area) to approximately 499m² (to include new workshop area and awning). These areas indicate that site coverage for the proposed development has more than doubled. Landscaping is considered appropriate for the development to assist in the visual amenity of the site and any impact of the proposed development on the surrounding locality. Landscaping is to be provided along the southern and eastern boundaries and the area along the western boundary that does not contain the shed extension. A condition of consent will require a landscaping plan to be submitted to the satisfaction of the Director of Environmental Services prior to the release of the construction certificate (CC). In addition, planting will be required to be completed prior to any issue of any occupation certificate and must be maintained at all times. A bond will also be required to ensure the landscaping is completed and maintained. 

 

The applicant has indicated that external finishes are to match existing. A condition will be included to restrict the use of reflective materials.

 

Water:

 

The subject site has access to the local Authority’s reticulated water supply and as such has adequate water supply for the development proposal. 

 

Flora and Fauna:

 

The proposal is not considered to have any impact on flora or fauna.

 

Waste:

 

Steel has been identified as a waste product. Any steel as waste will be collected in steel scrap bins and then sent to recyclers. Waste oil will be collected in waste oil bunds and collected by an approved waste oil merchant on a regular basis. No hazardous materials will be used or stored on site.

 

Natural Hazards

 

The proposal is not considered to result in any natural hazards.

 

Safety, Security and Crime Prevention

 

If the proposed development is approved, it is considered that the development would not pose a security risk to the surrounding area.

 

Signage

 

The application does not indicate any signage for the proposed development. A condition of consent will be included requiring approval for any future signage.

 

Construction

 

The proposal does require construction works to be undertaken. A construction certificate will be required for the proposed works. The development approval would require additions to comply with the BCA. In addition, fire safety requirements, access/traffic requirements have been conditioned appropriately.

 

There is a retaining wall to be constructed and this will be require certification by a practising structural engineer prior to any occupancy. A report as to the structural adequacy of such retaining wall is to be provided to Council.

 

THE SUITABILITY OF THE SITE s79C(1)(c)

 

The subject site is located within a village zone that allows for flexibility of land uses. The proposal is not contrary to the zone objectives or the CLEP 1991. Adequate arrangements can be made for access, parking, drainage, amenity, noise, sewerage and essential services. On this basis, the subject site is considered suitable for the proposed development.

 

ANY SUBMISSIONS MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ACT s79C(1)(d)

 

The proposed development was neighbour notified and advertised for a period of fourteen (14) days. Five (5) submissions were received during the notification period. The following table addresses the issues raised:-

 

 

Submission

Issues Raised

Comment

 

Submission 1

 

Proposed development is located within a predominant residential area and the amenity of the area should be kept for that use.

 

Traffic impacts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The scale of the proposed activity and how it fits with the residential aspect of the area

 

Canowindra has a designated light industrial area and this type of activity is  best suited for that area and not a residential area

 

 

 

 

Noise impacts

 

 

 

 

Hours of operation

 

The proposed use of the site is not a prohibited use under the local provisions of the CLEP 1991.

 

 

Traffic impact has been assessed and the scale of the proposed development can be conditioned. The proposed access requires upgrading however the existing roadwork is capable of sustaining any increase in traffic generation.

 

Scale of proposed activity can be conditioned.

 

 

Assessment under CLEP 1991 allows for a variety of uses within the village zoning. Complex zoning such as industrial zoning has been included in CLEP 2012 for Canowindra

 

 

Regulated by the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (PEOA Act)

 

 

Hours of operation are a condition required by the applicant to adhere to. The proposed hours of operation are not out of normal hours of operation.

 

 

Submission 2

 

The proposed extension will impose upon my views should I choose to build

 

 

Proposed zone under the draft LEP will be residential. Manufacturing will be prohibited

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Existing use rights

 

 

Is there any approval for the existing activity and building

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visual amenity as the site is in a prominent location with a significant impact upon adjoining properties

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Increase in number of employees to 3 indicates a significant increase in activity

 

 

Manufacturing process is an inappropriate use within a residential area

 

 

 

Increase in noise

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No waste management plan

 

Visual amenity is assessed under section 79C and conditions can be imposed to reduce visual impact of the development.

 

The existing zoning is 2(v) Village or Urban and is a flexible zone that allows for a variety of uses. The zone objective is to promote development in its existing towns and villages in a manner which is compatible with their urban function. Part of the assessment process is to establish whether the proposed use is compatible with the surrounding area and what impact the new use would have on the existing environment. The proposed use for manufacturing and repairs of farm machinery is not prohibited within the village zone.

 

There are no existing use rights

 

 

A search of Council manual and electronic records has not located an approval for the site for the repair of farm machinery. The existing shed has consent via BA 183/90 and issued 25 September 1990.

 

 

There is a significant increase of site coverage by the proposed development (more than doubling) from 222m² (containing existing structures) to 499m² (including the proposed additions). Conditions requiring landscaping of the site to reduce visual impact. The site has an existing shed. This DA also seeks to increase the size of the shed.

 

See above comments. Proposed scale of development can be conditioned.

 

 

The use is not prohibited within the existing village zone. The DA process allows for an assessment of all the potential impacts of the proposed use.

 

Noise emission can be addressed via conditions of consent requiring compliance under the PEOA Act. As Council is the authority to administer the PEOA Act for noise issues, a condition has been included to require a noise study to determine the current noise levels for the area.

 

Appropriate conditions of consent can be included to address concerns regarding waste

 

Submission 3

 

The site has been operating as a workshop for some time and is not a new business

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Massive shed will impose on any potential development or sale in the future for the surrounding area.

 

Noise Impacts

 

 

Rear lane is not considered accessible as it is narrow and in disrepair

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Size of vehicles accessing the site will intrude on our privacy and increased noise levels

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This type of development should be undertaken in more appropriate areas and not impact upon residential amenity

 

Council has not received any complaints regarding the activities currently being undertaken at the site prior to this DA being lodged. A search of Council records has not located an approval for the existing business operation. An approval was granted for the existing shed in 1990.

 

This is not a planning matter for consideration under Section 79C of the NSW EP&A Act 1979

 

 

As per previous submission comments

 

The laneway is identified as a Crown Road and therefore any access from the laneway would require consent from the Crown and has been conditioned to reflect this requirement. In addition, Council will require primary access to be off Robinson Street.

 

The applicant indicates a single delivery of steel per week with the largest vehicle being a semi-rigid truck. Additional deliveries of 2-3 deliveries if required via a courier service. Additional movements are anticipated at 2-3 per day. Noise levels have been addressed. No details for vehicle movements have been provided regarding the existing operation for farm machinery repairs

 

The Draft Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012 proposed complex zoning for Canowindra and as such there will be an identified industrial area. The subject site is proposed as a residential zone. However the existing zone of the site is village which allows for a variety of uses subject to Council consent being granted.

 

 

Submission 4

 

The site is zoned 2(v) Village. The proposed development is not in character with the zone objectives

 

 

 

 

 

The Draft LEP (at the time) and now the CLEP 2012 prohibits industry in the R1 zone.

 

 

 

Waste

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The proposed scale of the development is not suitable for the site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Noise

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stormwater

 

Traffic Impacts of noise

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Social and economic impacts are negative for the people who live close by

 

 

Visual impacts

 

The zone objective is to promote development that is compatible with the urban function. The use for repairs and fabrication is not a prohibited use and conditions of consent can be placed on the consent to address issues of amenity and noise.

 

Draft LEP is noted.

This application is to be assessed under the provisions of the CLEP 1991 which allows industry within the village zone.

 

Waste steel will be collected in steel scrape bins and sent to recyclers. Waste oil will be collected in waste oil bunds and collected by a waste oil merchant. No other waste products have been identified. Waste can be conditioned through the consent process.

 

Site coverage is more than doubling with the proposed additions. Existing site coverage is approximately 222m² and increasing to approximately 499m². Scale can be conditioned through hours of operation etc. Whether the site is suitable for the development is what the assessment process is about. These matters are addressed under Section 79C of the EP&A Act.

 

Whilst no noise assessment has been provided there are requirements under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act that requires compliance with noise regulations. This would be applied as a condition of consent for such a type of development. Council would be the responsible authority to investigate any complaints.

 

Conditioned

 

Number of proposed vehicle movements are not considered to be excessive. There are several conditions of consent requiring Crown consent for the use of the laneway as well as requirements for upgrading the existing access and internal vehicle movements.

 

Increase in employment and economic benefit to the town.

 

 

 

Conditions can be included to address visual aspects through increased landscaping and the use of non-reflective materials. Condition can also be included prohibiting outdoor storage and require screening from public view any waste/recycling bins and/or skips.

 

Submission 5

Development not suited in a residential area. The urban function of this area of Canowindra is residential/village zone. The R1 zone under the CLEP 2012 will make industry a prohibited use.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The value added renovations in the surrounding area will be diminished by the shed extension and use of the shed for industry.

 

The site is currently used to repair farm machinery with additional use proposed as manufacturing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Concern with expanded scale of the business.

 

 

Noise

 

As previously identified the proposed use is not a prohibited use and this application is made under the CLEP 1991 provisions. This assessment process requires the development to be assessed using Section 79C of the EP&A Act to determine if the site is suitable for the proposed use. Conditions can be included to address any impacts that may be associated with the development. It is acknowledged that the proposed uses are now prohibited under CLEP 2012.

 

These are not matters for consideration under Section 79C of the EP&A Act.

 

 

 

A search of Council records has not identified any approval for the use of this site. Whilst Council has no record of any approval, there are no records of complaints for the use of site in relation to noise, access, traffic or hours of operation. In addition the proposed manufacturing use is for steel fabrication and vehicle repairs.

 

The scale of the business as proposed can be conditioned to that scale.

 

Conditioned under other regulatory requirements/authorities – Protection of the Environment Operations Act for noise regulation.

 

 

 

The submissions can be adequately addressed through appropriate conditions of consent.

 

Public Authority Consultation

 

The subject application was not required to be referred to any public authority for consultation.

 

Development Contributions

 

No development contributions (S94 Contributions) apply to the development.

 

PUBLIC INTEREST s79C(1)(e)

 

The proposed development is considered to be of minor interest to the wider public due to the relatively localised nature of potential impacts. 

 

CONCLUSION

 

The proposed development relates to the use of the site for Industry (Steel Fabrication) and Car Repair Station and alterations and additions to the existing shed on Lot 2 Section 3 DP 758221, Robinson Street, Canowindra. Whilst the proposal is considered to be permissible within the zone and complies with relevant provisions of the Cabonne LEP 1991, it should be noted that under Council’s CLEP 2012, industry (steel fabrication) and vehicle repair station would be prohibited. Shed extensions are also proposed as a part of the development and can be conditioned to comply with the BCA.

 

A section 79C assessment of the proposal has been undertaken and is considered to be satisfactory. Adequate arrangements can be made for the provision of access, traffic generation, drainage, water supply, sewerage, hours of operation, visual amenity and essential services. A draft notice of approval is attached for reference.

3.0        Canowindra & District Historical Society – Plaques Project

 

Attention: Dorothy Balcomb, Canowindra & District Historical Society

 

The current plan is have the initial plaque fabricated for the former Bank – now gallery, and use that to get the other property owners on board.

 

 

4.0        Memorial monument - Canowindra

Attention: Heather Nicholls

 

A local resident has brought the site and the existing monument to the attention of Council. The following photos provide a statement of the history, condition and potential actions possible in conserving the place and significance.

 

The site is located on the Cowra side of the river and some 100m from the swing bridge. It has blue street signs indicating Monument from both the Gaskill Street side and from the Cowra side. The monument was initially provided by Boree Shire as part of the 1951 jubilee celebrations. Two additional panels have been applied since with the last in 1973 as a correcting plaque in relation to the two hotels as the subject of the hold up.

 

 

 

A general view shows the road reserve location, the painted steel pipe surround and 1200mm square concrete plinth and block. The panels are applied to a single side only. The main panel refers to Robinson’s Inn however there is no indication of where the inn may have been located.

         

 

A direct photo illustrates that the white paint finish is wearing off and the top of the structure requires minor cement repair to seal the top of the block. An appropriate solution, which is self evident from traditional monuments, is to slope the top down to the four faces in the form of a low pyramid. This sheds the water and reduces the damage caused by water lying in place.

 

 

The upper brass plaque needs a simple clean with standard brasso cleaning cream to remove the oxidation. No abrasive material should be used as this scratches the surface and aggravates the corrosion.

 

 

The main 1951 panel is a white marble set into the concrete monument with a raised surround. The marble quality is not high as can be seen by the pitting which has occurred over the years. The lettering is a bold italic font and has been traditionally dowelled into the incisions in the marble. The lettering and text are well incised and despite some loss of the original letters and some ad-hoc repairs, the information remains easily understood. The standard practice is not to fully restore such panels as this removes the character and original qualities which are an integral part of the significance.

 

It is recommended that a skilled monumental mason review the text with a view to ensuring the remaining lettering is well secured to the marble and also to carefully search the surroundings just in case the missing letters may be in the surrounding grass – this is often the case.

 

 

 

The lower panel

 

This panel appears to have been applied later given the location as a ‘footstone’ beneath the main panel and the simpler application of the lettering into the incised marble without dowel pins. While the above panel is being reviewed, a similar review of the lower panel can be carried out and advice provided.

 

It is suggested that this may even be possible initially by emailing the above photos to the mason.

 

Initial Recommendations

·      The steel pipe surrounds do not serve a protective purpose but identify the site from a distance. It is recommended that the surrounds are removed and replaced with a similar steel edge plate. The edge plate will allow the weed area to be replaced with a 100mm of compacted roadbase and cement stabilised decomposed ganite chippings. The purpose is to free the monument of the weed growth and provide a clear simple edge to mow around;

·      The top of the columns requires cutting back and a cement based pyramid shape constructed to improve drainage;

·      The main concrete plinth and monument can then be prepared and painted. As the white is not either traditional or practical a stone or beige is recommended such as Dulux Portland stone or Beige;

·      A skilled monumental ‘letter cutter’ mason to review the text as noted and advise on simple remedial work without a full restoration;

Treat the monument surface with Biocide;

§ An initial wash with standard household detergent

§ Paint on the following: Ajax Chemicals Turco Thoral disinfectant 6 catalogue number 15200 diluted to a 1% solution in water. Wash off after 1hour drying time

Re-use as much of the original lettering as possible – no replacement for the sake of visual uniformity;

 

·      The brass top panel to be cleaned with Brasso or equal.

 

 

 

5.0        Molong Surrounds – Avenue planting: new opportunities

An observation of the key entry areas to Molong indicate that the street tree planting is inconsistent in character and approach.

 

The Oval is the key landmark when coming in from Wellington and the traditional poplars dominate the setting and the roadside.

 

The Orange entry has largely been superseded by modifications to the road and the railway. The outer stands of poplars remain but the continuity has been lost by the new road alignment.

 

The main vista in Bank Street is down to the Railway Station and the focal point is a mix of road signs and sundry structures. The use of a simple line of additional planting would produce a green planted focal point for the street in this area. It would also complement the station vehicle area.

\Low planting in the foreground would allow the walkway and arched pergola to stand forward as the main feature in this area. Reducing the vehicle and tramce areas will improve the setting.

 

The general view

Proposal: A low set of green shrubs in the form of a hedge would effectively screen out the parked vehicles, unkempt grass and tarmac leaving the building behind to dominate the view.

 

6.0        Cabonne shire web site

On the Planning & Heritage tab leads to a tab ‘Community Heritage study’

This tab is now redundant given that the Study has long been completed.

Therefore this tab should be re-titled ‘heritage conservation’

·      The new information under this tab is excellent and represents the advice to property owners with heritage sites and sites within Conservation Areas

·      The download item is now redundant as the information is on the site as above and should be deleted.

 

7.0        Heritage Assistance Grants programme for local projects

 

Advertising will be placed shortly through Dale and will include notification through local community groups and their newsletters.

 

Advice has been provided for the painting of Western stores in Molong.
