Recommendation

 

THAT Councillors call any items that they wish to be debated in Committee of the Whole.

 

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

 

Council’s Code of Meeting Practice allows for the Council to resolve itself into “committee of the whole” to avoid the necessity of limiting the number and duration of speeches as required by Clause 250 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005.

 

This item enables councillors to call any item they wish to be debated in “committee of the whole” at the conclusion of normal business.

 

The debate process during a ‘normal’ Council meeting limits the number and duration of speeches as required by Clause 250 of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005. 

 

Items should only be called at this time if it is expected that discussion beyond the normal debate process is likely to be needed. 

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

Policy Implications

Annexures

File Number

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\GOVERNMENT RELATIONS\LOCAL AND REGIONAL LIAISON\LOCAL GOVERNMENT NSW - 758196

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council contribute $711.19 towards assistance with legal costs incurred in relation to Bathurst Regional Council from the s356 vote.

 

Administration Officer's REPORT

 

Council will be aware of the Local Government NSW (LGNSW) Legal Assistance Policy which allows a council to apply for the support of the Association in seeking contributions from all councils to assist with its legal costs where that council is involved in litigation and the principle in question in the matter;

·    involves a major local government principle which may be eroded but for pursuing the matter; and

·    is one which should not be eroded merely because the council involved is not itself, so seriously affected by the outcome of the case that the legal costs associated with pursuing the principle outweigh any other consequences. That is, just because the council involved itself, has decided in all the circumstances not to further pursue the matter, legal assistance can be provided where the matter is of such significance and broader concern to the whole of local government to warrant pursuing the principle.

 

The LGNSW Board approved an application made by Bathurst Regional Council for legal assistance under the LGNSW Legal Assistance Policy & Guidelines in August 2015. The matter has now been resolved in the courts. The LGNSW Board considered the matter to be of importance to local government throughout the State, as the proceedings related to the ability of councils to enter into contracts that include fees for services.

 

Bathurst Regional Council defended the matter before the NSW Court of Appeal. The proceedings challenged Council's jurisdiction to fix fees for services under long-term contracts. The NSW Court of Appeal found against Bathurst Regional Council, identifying that:

 

'even when the Local Government Act confers a power in terms upon councils to reach an agreement or arrangement with a landowner, the price it can charge for work performed by it remains subject to Part 10 of Chapter 15. To that extent at least, the 'general power to contract' cannot permit a Council to escape the statutory restrictions upon it'.

 

LGNSW is considering the implications of this decision for NSW councils and is likely to seek feedback from councils in the future to enable the issue to be adequately addressed in the next phase of the review of the Local Government Act 1993.

 

Financial contributions are now sought from councils as the costs of the proceedings have been determined.

 

The requested amount from Cabonne Council in this matter is $711.19.

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

Recommendation

 

THAT:

 

1.  Council proceed with public consultation proposing to name the road as “Rockdale Road”; and

2.  Assuming no objections are received, Council proceeds with the naming of the road as “Rockdale Road” in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act, 1993.

 

Acting Technical Services Manager's REPORT

 

Council has been made aware of an unnamed Council maintained road that runs in a westerly direction off Yellowbox Road near the Manildra Resource Recovery Centre. The road proposed to be named is shown in red outline on the map below. This road provides legal access to a number of allotments and will likely be required to be named in the future for the purposes of rural addressing. Having gazetted road names is critical in assisting emergency services attending to emergencies.

 

A suggested name for the road is “Rockdale Road”. This name is considered suitable as the ‘Rockdale’ was the name of an old property in that vicinity. It is noted that the name is considered suitable under the Geographical Names Board Guidelines.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

1.  Council proceed with public consultation proposing to name the road as “Piggery Lane; and

2.  Assuming no objections are received, Council proceeds with the naming of “Piggery Lane” in accordance with Section 162 of the Roads Act, 1993.

 

Acting Technical Services Manager's REPORT

Council has been made aware of an unnamed Council maintained road that runs in a northerly direction off Gumble Road past the Manildra Sewer Treatment Plant and connecting with Packham Drive. The road proposed to be named is shown in red outline on the map below. This road provides legal access to a number of allotments and is required to be named for the purposes of rural addressing as part of a Development Application. Having gazetted road names is also critical in assisting emergency services attending to emergencies. This road is also used as Council’s access to the Manildra Sewer Treatment Plant.

A suggested name for the road is “Piggery Lane”. This name is considered suitable as this road is commonly unofficially referred to as Piggery Lane by locals and Council staff. It is noted that the name should be considered suitable under the Geographical Names Board Guidelines.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

 

 

ITEM 11 - UPDATED SCHEDULE OF PROPOSED VOLUNTARY PUCHASES OF FLOOD AFFECTED PROPERTIES

REPORT IN BRIEF

 

Reason For Report

Seeking Council endorsement of updated schedule of  proposed voluntary purchases of flood affected properties.

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\COUNCIL PROPERTIES\ACQUISITION AND DISPOSAL\VOLUNTARY PURCHASE SCHEME - FLOOD PRONE LAND - 754756

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council endorse the updated schedule of proposed voluntary purchases.

 

 

Urban Assets Coordinator's REPORT

 

Council generally purchases one flood affected house each year alternating between Eugowra and Molong. A house in Molong has recently been demolished.

 

Council has received several offers of properties for voluntary purchase and the purpose of this report is to update the notional schedule of future purchases pending funding from the NSW State Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) which is usually granted on a 2:1 basis.

 

Schedule of proposed voluntary purchases

All properties eligible for funding from OEH are identified in the appropriate Flood Plan for the village. A Eugowra property for purchase in 2018/2019 has not yet been identified but it is expected that a suitable property will be offered in the intervening period.

 

Council has a preference for potential vendors in Eugowra to relocate within the village. A Eugowra consultative committee also reviews potential purchases and advises Council on the potential for relocation prior to Council’s acquisition of the property.

 

Council may amend the priority of voluntary purchases at any time.

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”.

The current Mobile Phones policy has been reviewed and updated to reflect responsibility for phones being reassigned to the Systems Administrator. Additional changes include clarification that negligence for damage as well as for loss may trigger compensation by the user and the methodology/limits for when personal usage will require reimbursement to the council was updated.

 

Records and Information Management policy

 

The current Records and Information Management policy has been updated based on advice provided by State Records NSW relating to what to do with removable media, such as CDs and flash drives, after records are captured into corporate systems.

·    Hold a mock Australian Citizenship Ceremony with students reading the Oath and singing the National Anthem.

·    Create a postcard competition for school students in Cabonne.  The theme being “Our Council, Our Community”, with gift cards being awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners.

·    Hold a session where local residents can ‘meet the local councillors’, either in the Council Chambers or out in the community.

·    Hold Heritage walks around the Cabonne region.

·    Encourage residents to keep up to date with happenings at Council through social media.  Add the website address ‘www.cabonne.nsw.gov.au’ and ‘like us on Facebook’ logo to the rate notices.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council:

 

1.   Note the variances in this report be updated to the 15/16 Budget; and

 

2.   Resolve that the changes are required and warranted for the continued management of council’s functions.

 

Senior Accounting Officer's REPORT

 

Various changes to Council’s initial Budget are proposed in the attached report.

 

As Council is in a merger proposal period the guidelines issued under section 23A must be taken into consideration. Under the guidelines, funding that was not included in Council’s original budget must be considered   in open Council and the resolution voting the funds must state the reason why Council considered the expenditure is required and warranted.

 

The changes contained herein are necessary to the continuing function of Council in the current year or have previously been reported to Council.

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\COMMUNITY RELATIONS\SPONSORSHIP - DONATIONS\SPONSORSHIP - DONATIONS - 2016 - 757311

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council donate $300 to the Molong and District Soccer Club and $500 to the Borenore CWA.

 

Community Services Manager's REPORT

 

The Borenore CWA seeks a donation from Council to upgrade their oven to a commercial unit which will enable them to cater for large events. 

 

Their preferred stoves range in price from $1800 to $2000.

 

The Molong and District Soccer Club seeks a donation of $500 to help them to upgrade their kit bags.

 

Their current kit bags are in disrepair and most items within them need to be replaced.

 

They believe that updated kit bags will make a big difference to each team’s training and game day routine.

 

The application from Borenore CWA does not fully justify why a commercial oven is necessary, however, it is clear that they do need to upgrade their existing cooking facilities.

 

The application from the Molong and District Soccer Club is likely to bring many benefits for local teams. Council may wish to consider if a donation towards sporting equipment will set a precedent for requests from other sporting groups.

 

Should Council wish to make a donation this could be funded from its s356 budget for donations, which has expenditure of $4,927 from a budget of $7,168 leaving a balance of $2,241.

 

Donations made to date are as follows;

 

$300          Cudal Camp Draft Association

$200          Molong Historical Society 50th anniversary celebrations

$300          Memorial for Constable John Herbert at Canowindra

$200          Manildra Christmas party fireworks display

$250          St Joseph’s School Molong excursion to Canberra

$250          St Joseph’s School Manildra excursion to Canberra

$250          Rotary Club of Orange Calare - drug education forums

$500          Molong Christmas Tree Party

2.   Vote $180,000 from the Quarry Equipment Reserve; and

 

3.   Resolve the expenditure is required and warranted to comply with an improvement notice from Trade & Investment NSW Mine Safety.

 

Acting Director of Engineering & Technical Services' REPORT

 

Background

The limestone quarry operation at the Molong Limestone Quarry (MLQ) has a two part 420 square metre corrugated iron shed that stores crushed limestone prior to further crushing in the two lime mills to produce lime. The crushed limestone needs to be under cover for dust suppression and to keep the material sufficiently dry for the lime production stage

The shed which is over 50 years old has been subjected to structural damage to the frame trusses from earthmoving equipment over a long period and a section of the shed recently collapsed.

Council has received an Improvement Notice from Trade and Investment NSW Mine Safety in relation to the collapsed section and a risk analysis carried out by Council in conjunction with the NSW Mine Safety Officer indicates that because of structural concerns the whole of shed should be replaced.

A shed design has been developed which incorporates the conveyor system inside the building to prevent build-up of crushed limestone that may fall off a conveyor onto the roof.

The shed walls will be constructed from concrete tilt panels to prevent future damage from earthmoving equipment working inside the shed.

The new shed will have capacity for approximately 1,400 cubic metres of crushed limestone, doubling the present capacity, which will improve the overall productivity of the quarry.

The estimated cost of this project is $180,000 and is to be funded from the Quarry Equipment Reserve.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period.  The expenditure is required and warranted to comply with an improvement notice from Trade & Investment NSW Mine Safety.

1.   A sum of $34,000 be transferred from Molong Depot – Security and Fencing to Cudal Depot – Installation of Fence and Gate; and

 

2.   These funds are required and warranted to enable security upgrade at Cudal Depot to be completed.

 

OPERATIONS MANAGER ROADS & BRIDGES' REPORT

Council is currently undertaking the installation of electronically controlled security gates at Cudal Depot.

The Depot has three entry/exit gates on the southern, eastern and western perimeters.  The original design called for the electronic security to be installed on the southern and eastern entrances.  However, due to the proximity of high voltage power lines adjacent to the eastern entrance, it is necessary to adopt the western entrance as the second electronically controlled security gate.

This inclusion will increase the cost of installation of the electronic security to the southern and western entrances to $80,000 mainly due to the extension of power to the western site.  The current budget allocation for this project is $46,000.  

The budget for the Molong Depot – Security and fencing is $36,100 under spent due to the deletion of one security gate which is only used occasionally. This gate will continue to be operated manually.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period. These funds are required and warranted to enable security upgrade at Cudal Depot to be completed.

SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the modified development application submitted for a 3 lot industrial subdivision and the construction of industrial buildings on Lot 173 DP 750133, Banjo Paterson Way, Molong. The modification application seeks to increase the wall and ridge heights of Buildings A, B and C. The purpose of the changes is for improved storage and stacking of items (Building A); facilitate unobstructed operation of equipment and loading/unloading within Building B & C.

 

The application has been referred to Council for determination as the original application was approved by Council’s Environmental Services and Sustainability Committee. This committee has been disbanded and as such determination is required by Council. The application was originally approved on 18 March 2014. 

 

The application has been assessed in accordance with Section 96(1A) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, being of minimal environmental impact and substantially the same development for which consent was granted.

 

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

 

Applicant: Peter Basha Planning & Development

Owner:      Davimac Pty Ltd

Proposal:  3 lot industrial subdivision, construction of 4 industrial sheds for industrial use, warehouse and distribution

Location:   Lot 173 DP 750153, Banjo Paterson Way, Molong

Zone:         1(a) General Rural   

 

Section 23A of the Local Government Act “Council decision making during merger proposal periods” requires Council to consider these guidelines and assess any impact upon a determination. The guidelines have been considered and the proposed development and determination for the support of determination is not contrary to the guidelines.

 

 

THE PROPOSAL

The proposed modification seeks to:-

 

·    Increase the wall height of Building A from 4.8m to 6m to facilitate improved storage and stacking of items. The ridge height would also be increased from 6.131m to 7.331m;

·    Increase the wall height of Building C from 6.2m to 7.5m to facilitate unobstructed operation of equipment and loading/unloading within the building. An increase in the ridge height for Building C is also proposed from 9.391m to 10.691m.

 

No other aspects to the development are proposed to alter.

 

Site Map

 

The subject land is located on the southern side of Banjo Paterson Way, approximately 3km to the west of Molong and has an area of approximately 42 hectares. The land is bounded by Shingle Ridge Creek to the east; Banjo Paterson Way to the north; native timber to the west and rural land to the south. The land is vacant of any buildings or structures and consists of land used for grazing purposes. The site is mainly cleared of native timber with small patches of native trees. The predominant vegetative cover is pasture. The subject land is characteristic of surrounding rural properties that has been cleared for agricultural purposes.

 

Shingle Ridge Creek forms the eastern boundary of the subject site; is a non-perennial tributary that flows into the Molong Creek approximately 2.5km to the north east.

 

The surrounding development pattern comprises the following:-

·    A small rural holding with dwellings to the north on the opposite side of Banjo Paterson Way with dwellings located approximately 105m and 185m for the northern boundary of the subject site.

·    Native timber on the land to the east which comprises 3 rural properties.

·    Cleared grazing land to the south of the site with the nearest dwelling being approximately 495m from the southern boundary.

·    Native forest adjoins the site to the west creating a buffer of approximately 500m between the sites western boundary and rural properties to the west.

 

Access to the site is via Banjo Paterson Way which is identified as a regional road, consisting of a two-lane bitumen sealed carriageway. The site and surrounding locality is not connected to either reticulated water or sewer. Telecommunications and electricity are available within the locality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Background

Approval was granted for Industrial Subdivision and Construction of Industrial Buildings via 2012/171 on 18 March 2014.

 

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)

As the original DA was assessed under the CLEP 1991 provisions any modification is required to be assessed under those same provisions. The subject land is zoned 1(a) General Rural by the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991.  Subdivision of land, construction of industrial buildings for industry and warehouse is permissible within this zone, subject to Council’s development consent.

 

The proposed modification for an increase in building height (ridge and wall height) does not change the context of the modification application.

 

Objectives of the 2(v) zone

The proposal is not contrary to the aims of the LEP or the objectives of the 1(a) zone.  The development relates to and is consistent with the zone objective which seeks to “promote the proper management and utilization of resources".

 

The proposed modification is not contrary to the objectives of the zone.

 

Clause 11 – Subdivision of land generally

The nature of the modification is not changing the context of the approved development. The modification does not propose to change any aspects of the subdivision principles.

 

Clause 15 – Subdivision for other purposes in Zones Nos 1(a) and 7(c)

The nature of the modification is not changing the context of the approved development. The modification does not propose to change any aspects of the subdivision principles.

 

All existing requirements for subdivision remain.

 

Clause 21 – Development along arterial roads

The proposed modified development does not propose to change any aspects of the development relating to access provisions.

 

All existing requirements and conditions will remain.

 

Clause 23 – Bushfire hazard

The proposed modification does change the previous site assessment for impacts on bushfire.

 

Clause 24 – Access

The proposed modification does not change from the previous site assessment.

 

REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PLANS

 

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

 

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

State Environmental Planning Policy No 44 (Koala Habitat) applies to the site as Cabonne Council is identified within the SEPP 44 schedule as having koala habitat.  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 subject land.

The Rural Lands SEPP applies to the Cabonne Council area. The nature of the modification does not require any further assessment of the SEPP.

 

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

There are no draft environmental plans that relate to the subject land or proposed development.

 

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

 

Development Control Plan No 5 – General Rural Zones applies to this development. The DCP specifies controls for dwellings and subdivisions. The proposal is generally consistent with those controls that are relevant to the development.

 

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

The modification does not propose to alter any location of structures.

 

Lot size and shape

There are no changes to lot size or shape with the proposed modification.

 

Setbacks

No changes to setbacks for the buildings are proposed.

 

Visual amenity

Whilst the modification seeks to increase the height of approved buildings A, B & C, there is already an acknowledgement that the landscape of the subject will change (via Councils approval of the development in March 2014 for industrial subdivision and buildings for industrial uses). Landscaping commitments are required by the consent and these requirements stand. The purpose of the condition is to lessen the impact of the approved development and not necessarily to screen the development completely from all surrounding properties.

 

Access and traffic

The proposed modification does not alter access provisions or traffic arrangements for the approved development.

 

 

Noise

The modification for a change in ridge height does not alter the previous site assessment. Conditions of consent remain unchanged. Compliance with noise regulations also remain.

 

Light

 

Whilst the modification seeks to increase the wall height for buildings A, B and C and an increase in ridge heights, the existing condition is still considered to be satisfactory which will require a design to provide effective illumination without causing light scatter or disturbance.

 

Effluent Disposal

The proposed modification does not affect the previous site assessment.

 

Agricultural Impact

The proposed modification relates only to wall and ridge height changes to Buildings A, B and C. The modification does not alter the previous assessment in relation to agricultural changes and impact on the land.

 

Flora and Fauna

There have been no identified threatened species on the subject land upon investigation of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service Atlas. It is considered that the modification will not impact on any threatened species as only minimal removal of existing vegetation would be required.

 

Heritage

The subject land is not identified as being an item of environmental heritage under Schedule 1 of the LEP. In addition, the site is not known to contain any Aboriginal relics or places.

 

Utilities

The proposed modification for a change in wall and ridge heights for Buildings A, B & C does not affect the previous site assessment.

 

Signage

The proposed modification does not change the previous site assessment.

 

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

 

Physical Attributes and Hazards

The land is identified as being bush fire prone land. The original application was referred to NSW RFS for concurrence. The nature of the modification does not require any additional referral or concurrence.

 

DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTIONS

 

No contributions apply to the development.

CONCLUSION

The proposed modified development is permissible with the consent of Council. 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 development complies with the relevant aims, objectives and provisions of the LEP. Section 23A of the Local Government Act “Council decision making during merger proposal periods” requires Council to consider these guidelines and assess any impact upon a determination. The guidelines have been considered and the proposed development and determination for the support of determination is not contrary to the guidelines.

 

A section 79C assessment of the development indicates that the development is acceptable in this instance.  Attached is a draft Notice of Approval outlining a range of conditions considered appropriate to ensure that the development proceeds in an acceptable manner.

SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the development application submitted for Animal Boarding & Training Establishment, Teenagers retreat, and detached studio on Lot 86 DP 756876, 2342 Belgravia Road, Molong.

 

The application is not advertised development however due to the nature of the proposal, the application was neighbor notified for a period of 14 days with no submissions being received during the exhibition phase.

 

The application is required to be determined by Council as two of the structures, teenagers retreat and detached studio are within 20m of front and side boundaries. The proposed setbacks are contrary to DCP No.5.

 

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

 

Applicant: Gaswa Elniz

Owner:      Gaswa Elniz

Proposal:  Animal Boarding & Training Facility, Teenagers retreat and detached studio

Location:   Lot 86 DP 756876, 2342 Belgravia Road, Molong

Zone:         RU1 Primary Production   

 

Section 23A of the Local Government Act “Council decision making during merger proposal periods” requires Council to consider these guidelines and assess any impact upon a determination. The guidelines have been considered and the proposed development and determination for the support of determination is not contrary to the guidelines.

 

THE PROPOSAL

The proposal seeks consent for the establishment of an animal boarding and training establishment for greyhound breeding, rearing and training complex to accommodate up to 50 dogs on a rural holding on the outskirts of Molong. Currently the land owners have eight (8) dogs on site; these animals are not for the purposes of breeding and training of a commercial nature, merely a hobby.

 

The proposal seeks approval for a maximum of up to fifty (50) dogs.

 

No hours of operation are indicated.

 

The owners of the land will operate the facility should it become commercial in nature. There are no additional employees.

 

The proposal also seeks consent for a teenagers retreat; located behind the existing dwelling (approximately 20-30m away) and shed and sits approximately 2m from the eastern boundary of the lot. A detached studio is also located approximately 15m from the Belgravia Road boundary and approximately 130m from the access point to the property.

 

All structures associated with the proposal (teenagers retreat, detached studio, animal shelters, shed and fencing for animal runs) have been constructed.

 

Access is via an existing access point off Belgravia Road.

 

The site is not connected to either reticulated water or sewer; however on site electricity is available. Water is available via tanks and a licensed bore.

The proposal is consistent with the standard instrument definition for animal boarding and training establishment.

 

A teenagers retreat and a detached studio are not specifically defined in the standard instrument, and as such are best identified as inordinate uses.

 

Objectives of the RU1 Primary Production zone

The proposal is not contrary to the aims of the LEP or the objectives of the RU1 zone.  The development relates to and is consistent with the zone objectives which seek to

 

·    To encourage sustainable primary industry production by maintaining and enhancing the natural resource base.

·    To encourage diversity in primary industry enterprises and systems appropriate for the area.

·    To minimise the fragmentation and alienation of resource lands.

·    To minimise conflict between land uses within this zone and land uses within adjoining zones.

·    To enable function centres, restaurants or cafes and appropriate forms of tourist and visitor accommodation to be developed in conjunction with agricultural uses.

 

Part 2 – Permitted or prohibited development

The proposed development for an Animal Boarding and Training Establishment (Greyhounds) is a permissible land use in the RU1 zone under the provisions of the LEP. The proposed teenagers retreat and detached studio are not prohibited uses.

 

Part 4 – Principal development Standards

There are no principal development standards that apply to the proposed development.

 

Part 6 – Additional local provisions

Clause 6.3 Terrestrial biodiversity

Whilst the subject land is identified as “Biodiversity” on the Terrestrial Biodiversity Map (Red Stringybark - Blakely's Red Gum - Yellow Box woodland), the proposed development is not likely to have any adverse impact on the flora and fauna of the land. No additional measures are required to minimise or mitigate the impacts of the proposed development.

 

6790066

 

Clause 6.4 Groundwater vulnerability

The subject land has been identified as “Groundwater Vulnerable” on the Groundwater Vulnerability Map (Moderately High – High). The proposed development for an Animal Boarding and Training Establishment, teenagers retreat and detached studio will not have any adverse impacts on the groundwater dependent ecosystems nor any cumulative effect on the groundwater system itself. Based on the proposed use of the land, the proposed development will not result in groundwater contamination. No additional measures are required to avoid, minimize or mitigate impacts for the proposed developments.

 

9883443

 

Clause 6.8 Essential services

The site is not connected to reticulated water or sewer. There is an existing dwelling on site and as such the provision of electricity, telecommunications, on site provisions of water, septic and access are all existing or available within the locality.

 

REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PLANS

 

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

 

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

State Environmental Planning Policy No.44 (Koala Habitat) applies to the site.

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 No.55 – Remediation of Land applies to the site and the application. The proposal is not considered to be contrary to the provisions of the SEPP.

 

State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development) 2008 is applicable in the assessment of the application.

 

Fencing and animal shelters may be dealt with under the exempt code if they meet the required development standards. This application does not seek approval for the animal shelters or fencing as these structures have already been constructed.

 

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

There are no draft environmental plans that relate to the subject land or proposed development.

 

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

 

Development Control Plan No 5 – General Rural Zones applies to this development. The proposal is generally consistent with the provisions of the plan.

 

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

The DCP identifies setbacks being 20m from a boundary for dwellings. Whilst the structures are not dwellings, they are both sited closely to the front and side boundary. The detached studio is approximately 15m from the Belgravia Road boundary with the teenagers retreat being approximately 2m from the eastern boundary. There is an adjoining dwelling to the east of the site and is approximately 20m from the teenagers retreat.

 

Animal shelters, runs and shed are not sited in close proximity to any boundaries and are not visually offensive in nature.

 

Visual amenity

Many of the aspects of the development are rural in nature; metal fencing, shed and animal shelters. The animal shelters are relatively small in size and whilst visual; are not intrusive on the site or the surrounding landscape.

 

The other structures are not intrusive nor out of context. The teenagers retreat is sited behind the dwelling, connected via a cement path, and not visual from the front boundary. It is however in close proximity to the eastern boundary and the adjoining dwelling. Landscaping along the eastern boundary from the rear of the teenagers retreat to its intersection with the northern boundary would assist in creating visual amenity between the structures as well as assisting in screening of the animal shelters and runs.  

 

Whilst the detached studio is sited close to the front boundary (Belgravia Road) no additional measures are required.

 

Access and traffic

Access to the site is via Belgravia Road via an existing access point. The access point meets the engineering specifications for the provision of private access for the development and as such no further upgrades are required.

 

Traffic generation is considered to be minimal based on proposed numbers and the long term boarding and training of the animals. This type of development generates low volumes of traffic when compared to commercial boarding kennels for animal pets.

 

An internal access road exists on site and has been constructed to an all-weather two-wheel drive standard.

 

Noise

Noise; mainly barking dogs have been identified as a potential source of noise from the proposed development. A condition of consent will be included requiring ongoing compliance with the provisions of the Industrial Noise Policy of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.

 

Waste

No details regarding waste and hygiene have been provided. There will be a requirement for the yards, shed and food preparation areas to be cleaned daily.

 

Water

The site is not connected to a reticulated water supply; however the site is serviced by a licensed bore.

 

Use of teenagers retreat and detached studio

A condition of consent will be included in any consent that these structures as a teenagers retreat and a detached studio are not for residential use. The approval for these inordinate uses will only remain valid whilst the subject land is in its current ownership. Should ownership of the land change, council will seek their removal from the site or for the structures to be decommissioned.

 

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

 

Physical Attributes and Hazards

There are no known technological or natural hazards that would affect the proposed development.

 

DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTIONS

 

No contributions apply to the development.

 

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

 

The proposed development is not advertised development; however the proposed development was neighbor notified for a period of 14 days. No submissions were received during the notification phase.

 

SECTION 149 – BUILDING CERTIFICATES

Whilst Council acknowledges buildings works have been undertaken on site for the teenagers retreat and detached studio without development consent, the provisions of building certificates provides Council with a means of regularising illegal building works after the event.

 

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 an Animal boarding and training establishment, teenagers retreat and detached studio is permissible with the consent of Council. The development complies with the relevant aims, objectives and provisions of the LEP. A section 79C assessment of the development indicates that the development is acceptable in this instance.  Attached is a draft Notice of Approval outlining a range of conditions considered appropriate to ensure that the development proceeds in an acceptable manner.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council donate $1,807.05 from its s356 budget to Benjamin Read, being the amount equivalent to DA application fees paid in association with Development Application 2016/1028 for a dwelling & shed on Lot 1 DP 1117738, 3 Vista Lane, Canowindra.

 

 

Senior Town Planner's REPORT

 

Council has received a request from Ben and Jemimah Read requesting Council’s consideration of reimbursement of fees paid in association with DA 2016/1028 for a dwelling & shed on Lot 1 DP 1117738, 3 Vista Lane, Canowindra.

 

Ben and Jemimah are the parents of 9 year old triplets who all have a rare type of muscular dystrophy and all depend on power wheelchairs. The new dwelling aims to be entirely wheelchair accessible and cater to their needs in order to allow the children to be as independent as possible.

 

Although the request does not fit Council’s policy, special consideration has been asked that Council consider the request in order to ease financial burden in these exceptional circumstances.

 

The fees paid totalled $2,857.05 and consisted of the following:-

 

Complying Development Application           $   833.25

Inspections                                                       $   841.10

S68 Application                                               $     82.70

Occupation Certificate                                    $     50.00

Long Service Levy                                           $1,050.00

 

It is understood that Council is unable to refund the Long Service Levy.

The DA for this application has been approved and consent granted on 14 April 2016.

 

Council’s Donations policy (dated 17 December 2012) includes the following procedural statements:

 

1.      Development Application (DA) fees

Council will donate an amount equal to refunding the actual amounts paid as Council DA fees and charges, as defined, in instances relating to Council owned / controlled or Crown Land where the improvement would become a Council Asset.

Any requests for a refund/donation of DA fees by Not-For-Profit/Community Organisations will be submitted for consideration by Council with the amount to be refunded / donated to be determined on a case by case basis.

 

For clarity it is noted the following fees are not eligible for donation: statutory fees such as long service levy, advertising, planning reform (plan first levy) and other fees which may be charged including inspections, occupation certificate, subdivision, subdivision certificates, integrated development and principal certifying authority.

 

All fees associated with development applications, construction certificate applications and complying development applications are to be paid with the application.   Requests for a refund of DA fees are to be made in writing on the prescribed form, stating the grounds or reasons justifying why Council should donate an amount equal to the relevant fees.

 

Fees to be donated back to the applicant will only be donated after determination of the relevant application.

 

Council staff may process any such requests within the limits of the policy.   Any requests exceeding the policy are to be reported to Council for consideration.

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council execute the release of the restriction on the use of land registered as DP 863231 – Restriction(s) on the Use of Land referred to as item 2 in the Second Schedule of Folio 100/1091508, known as Lot 100 DP 1091508, 631 Cargo Road, Nashdale and apply the Council seal to the required documents.

 

 

Senior Town Planner's REPORT

 

Correspondence has been received from planning consultant Peter Basha Planning and Development, acting on behalf of Nik and Deonne Helena Samodol being the owners of the subject land (Lot 100 DP 1091508 known as 631 Cargo Road, Nashdale) requesting that council authorise the release on the Restriction on the Use of the Land which was previously applied to the land in relation to a subdivision in 1995.

 

The subject land (ie Lot 100 DP 1091508) is rural land. The Restriction on the Use of the Land was a policy of Council at the time relating to rural subdivisions. The restriction related to subdivision 1995/45 and specifically referred to:

 

(a) No dwelling house, cottage or other erection or construction for the purpose of or capable of use as residential use shall be erected, maintained or allowed to remain upon the land hereby burdened.

 

(b) No person shall dwell or remain in any dwelling house, cottage or other erection or construction for the purpose of or capable for use as residential premises or residential use upon the land hereby burdened.

 

Since the restriction was placed on the land, a further subdivision (2011/0071) of the land was approved. Prior to the release of subdivision 2011/0071 there is a requirement to either vary the restriction or seek Council’s consent to release the restriction.

 

The restriction to the use of the land related to a policy that is no longer a current policy of Council. The policy in times past was required to register a restriction on the title deeds of rural subdivisions so subsequent land owners were aware of the planning provisions and restrictions applicable at the time. It should be noted that Council’s local environmental plan still holds the legislative requirements for a dwelling on rural land. As such, there is no objection for the release of this restriction on the said land and it is requested that the Council seal be applied to the required documents for the release to be binding.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council write to Lands requesting that:

1.   R26989 (Lot 7300 DP1149700) be gazetted as a reserve for a garbage depot; and

2.   Cabonne Council be appointed as the Trust Manager for both R26989 (Lot 7300 DP1149700) and Lot 69807 (Lot 68 DP 750170).

 

Senior Environmental Services Officer's REPORT

 

Council has received correspondence from the Department of Primary Industries – Lands, seeking confirmation by way of a Council resolution to be Trust Managers for two (2) lots relating to the council’s green waste depot at Molong.

 

R26989 (Lot 7300 DP1149700) is currently gazetted as a reserve for a Limestone Quarry and is actually being used as the council’s green waste depot at Molong and should be retained for that purpose;

 

Lot 69807 (Lot 68 DP 750170) is currently gazetted as a “reserve” for a Garbage Depot. Although this lot is currently fenced off from the current greenwaste collection site, a recent inspection of the site showed some indications that the site has been previously landfilled.

 

It is proposed that Lands be requested to gazette R26989 as a reserve for a garbage depot which would allow the current waste related activities (green waste and abandoned cars) and allowing other similar uses subject to future changes; and to appoint Cabonne Council as the Trust Manager.

 

Due to the likelihood of Lot 69807 being previously landfilled, it is also proposed that Lands be requested to appoint Cabonne Council as Trust Manager for this site to ensure the ongoing rehabilitation of the site.

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, the actions recommended will enable Council to address matters of land management in a compliant manner.

Currently Council has a Stage 2 application under the Fixing Country Roads and Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program for a $300,000 grant toward the construction of Dedarang Street, Carlisle Street and Derowrie Streets in the vicinity of Graincorp, MSM Milling and Manildra Flour.

Council’s Stage 1 application was recently approved.

The design includes a B double parking area in Dedarang Street and provides an opportunity for trucks travelling south in Boree Street to enter Dedarang Street and to traverse Derowrie Street and Carlisle Street and rejoin Boree Street in order to travel in a northerly direction.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

Acting Director of Engineering & Technical Services' REPORT

The Energy Efficiency Committee was formed in January 2016 with the purpose of identifying and implementing measures that will make Council’s energy use more efficient and sustainable. This involves committee meetings to identify areas where energy use may be better managed, or propose areas where new or current technologies may aid in more efficient energy use. A separate committee was established in 2012 with the same purpose, with various measures implemented. These included:

·    Changing light fittings at Molong and Cudal Council Offices from T8 fittings to more efficient T5 fittings.

·    Installing a Power Factor Correction at the Molong Quarry to reduce energy wastage.

The current Energy Efficiency Committee has not implemented any measures as yet, however the following projects have been included in the 2016/17 budget for consideration:

·    Solar installation at Rotary Park Amenities – re-establish power at the amenities at Rotary Park for the purpose of providing lighting for the area.

·    Variable Speed Drive at Canowindra Pool – reduce pump energy use by reducing the speed of the pump when minimal pool filtration is required.

There are several other measures that have been identified by the Committee, as well as possible technologies identified by individual members outside meetings, that would have an impact on Council’s energy use provided they are implemented correctly. It must be stressed that these ideas have not been budgeted or investigated, however they are projects that may be investigated in the future for their viability. They include the following:

·    LED Streetlights – would reduce the cost of street lighting, which is the second largest electricity cost behind the Molong Quarry. Would also involve large capital costs and large amounts of co-ordination with the energy provider.

·    Solar panel installations – would reduce the cost of electricity by using clean, renewable energy. Solar installations would only be cost effective at sites where energy usage is highest during daylight hours (for example Molong and Cudal Council Offices and Canowindra Pool), which would reduce energy usage at peak times when costs are highest.

·    Smart meter installations – will be rolled out by energy retailers from December 2017. Smart meters will allow Council to monitor its energy use remotely and switch to more flexible electricity tariffs, as well as eliminate the need for meter readers.

·    Review of current tariffs at all sites – savings may be possible if some sites have their tariffs changed from a Fixed rate to a Time-of-Use rate, and vice-versa. This is dependent on the type of meter at each site and the economic feasibility of the tariff change.

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

Canberra Food & Wine EXPO

TP Action 5.3.2

 

The Canberra Food & Wine EXPO was held at the Canberra Exhibition Centre on 19-21 February 2016. Brand Orange organised the regional display with a number of wineries along with Cabonne’s Promotion and Tourism Officer who provided the visitor information, responded to enquiries and promoted upcoming regional events and attractions. During the three days more than 500 Village Guides were handed out, along with a similar number of Orange Region Visitor Guides. The stand also promoted two significant events, the Canowindra Balloon Challenge and Food Week, scheduled for April.

 

Please note that guidelines have been issued under Section 23A of the Local Government Act titled “Council decision making during merger proposal periods”. Council must consider the guidelines in relation to each decision they make during the proposal period, this matter is of an ongoing nature and it is considered it complies with the guidelines.

 

Acting EDM also updated the committee on the following subjects:

 

Cabonne, Orange, Blayney Merger Proposal

 

Whether Cabonne will continue as a stand-alone council in the future should be known within the next two months.

About three weeks ago, Local Government Minister Paul Toole wrote to councillors asking them to apply for roles at newly merged councils, despite a decision on council amalgamations not yet being finalised.

Job roles include acting as an administrator, taking up a role as a councillor on the new entity until elections are conducted, or becoming a member of one of two advisory groups. The letter asked for expressions of interest to be submitted by April 15 and said councillors would be notified of any outcomes by the middle of the year. At a workshop on Tuesday 12 April 2016, council resolved that all councillors reserve the right to submit an expression of interest or not.

Expressions of interest have also been sought from existing council general managers for "interim" roles in new merged entities.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Council agreed to join legal action, initiated by Walcha Council, in the Land & Environment Court against the State Government (Minister for Local Government) as the Minister has failed to comply with Section 218F of the Local Government Act, 1993.

Council approve legal expenses associated with this action up to a maximum of $20,000.

 

Cabonne Villages Marketing Campaign

 

At an extraordinary meeting on 12 April 2016, Council resolved to accept the tender of Adloyalty of Canowindra to design and deliver a marketing campaign to promote the 12 village areas of Cabonne.

The $50,000 campaign will be mainly centred on television advertising, supported by a dedicated website and social media presence initially over an eight-week period.

 

Ophir Road Upgrade

 

Council will consider (with priority) including $465,000 in its 2016-17 Budget to upgrade Ophir Road following a petition from 18 road users. A total of 6.5km of road is unsealed between the limit of the existing seal 900m west of the Lookout Road intersection and the causeway over Summer Hill Creek at the Ophir Reserve. Traffic counts indicated the road averages 55 vehicles a day.

 

Should Council wish to seal the requested length of road, the total cost would be about $1.8m, involving a budget allocation of $465,000 over the next four years.

 

 

7.2 ROUND THE TABLE

 

Manildra - Glenda Gibson

 

·    Mill to Mill ride - Beyond Blue is the major beneficiary of the ride with funds also going to Manildra Public School, St Joseph’ss School, Pre-School, Men’s Shed, Caravan Park and Skate Park . Congratulations to organisers of this event .

·    Manildra Movie Festival was a great success, lots of visitors, great for the towns clubs, hotel. The Amusu Theatre and the markets also did well. Looking forward to next year.

·    The Men’s Shed is coming along, regular working bee’s are being held.

·    The footpath to the new amenities has been completed, let’s hope we can finally get the last of this project completed.

·    Rugby League season has begun in Manildra. It’s great that this sport is back up and running. Tennis has also taken a favorable turn.

·    Anzac Day just around the corner plans have been organised with Kate Hazelton from Cudal as our special guest speaker for this year.

 

Yeoval – Alf Cantrell

 

·    Average of four people staying at the showground camping area each night. Show society charging $15 per person.

·    Camp kitchen is being constructed adjacent to the recently completed amenities block at the showground and 15 advanced trees will be planted around the caravan camping area.

·    Work has started on the construction of a new bridge over Hanover Creek on Banjo Paterson Way.

·    Cabonne Council has done a lot of work on local roads, particularly realignment and culvert replacement on Banjo Paterson Way and the standard is excellent. Will wait until next heavy rain to see if smaller culvert pipes handle storm water.

·    The recent resurfacing of Yeoval’s main street was disappointing as the contractors appear to have done the work badly.

·    There has been an increase in the number of students at Yeoval Central School.

·    Yeoval Show will be held on Tuesday 19 April 2016 and an increase in entries and spectators is expected. With the show being held during the school; holidays, the committee has never had as many inquiries from exhibitors and competitors.

 

Mullion Creek – Lindy Crossley

 

·    The Australian championship winning robotics team from Mullion Creek school will not be travelling to Germany for the world titles, however they recently did a display in Sydney.

A new robotics team will be attempting to qualify for the national championships.

·    Mullion Creek Public School pupil Piper Denning had her artwork displayed in Sydney.

·    A car rally raising money for the Royal Flying Doctors Service passed through Mullion Creek recently.

·    Cabonne Council and Roads and Maritime Service will each meet 50% of the cost of constructing a path from the school to Mullion Creek Hall. With little parking at the school, this pathway will provide access to the parking area at the hall.

·    The community has agreed on a local resident’s design to upgrade the hall, and quotes are now being obtained. The community is planning fund-raising activities including a raffle and possibly a clearing sale.

·    Mullion Creek Progress Association wants the status of a water bore in the village clarified. It is believed the bore was installed just after a severe drought in the 1980s as a drought mitigation measure. The association believes the bore should remain available for people to access during drought, but understands Council has stated it should be locked for fire-fighting purposes.

 

Cumnock – Don Bruce

 

·    Cumnock held a successful show in March despite unseasonably hot weather which required part of the program to be delayed until the evening.

·    The village this week farewelled its local police officer.

·    Cumnock pre-school has carried out improvements to the exterior and interior following highly successful fund-raising efforts and the receipt of grant funding.

·    The memorial gates have been painted in preparation for Anzac Day services in the village.

·    A lot of road works are being carried out by Cabonne Council, particularly on Baldry and Gumble Roads.

·    The community is trying to raise funds to upgrade the toilet area at the showground.

·    The Zoo to Zoo cycle ride from Canberra to Dubbo recently passed through Cumnock where the community served breakfast. Cumnock usually hosts two Zoo to Zoo rides a year, with another group riding from Sydney to Dubbo annually. This year’s Canberra ride included a group of cyclists who had ridden from Melbourne.

 

Molong – Kerry Connelly (provided in writing prior to the meeting)

 

·    The 100 Mile Dinner last night as an amazing success.  We were told it was going to another town but during the evening Edwina announced Molong would again hold the dinner next year, so will have to confirm that a little later.

 

          350 tickets were sold (maximum capacity), they set for 400 just to allow        movement in seating.

 

          People from Darwin, Tambourine Mountain QLD, Coffs harbour were among         the guests. 

 

          28 cyclists had ridden through town last year and said they would book in    when they did their ride this year, and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

 

 

Cudal – Marion Gosper (provided in writing prior to the meeting)

 

·    The Cudal Show Society received a grant of $39,100.00 that was submitted to the Public Reserves Management Fund, Crown Lands for a new kitchen at the Cudal Showground. The ceiling of the kitchen has been fully lined to stop vermin getting in, the floors have been sealed, a screen door placed on the entrance of the kitchen a roller door over the servery and all new appliances have been bought including Fridge, Bain Maree, Urn, Griddle, Cool room, Stainless Steel Centre Bench, kitchen sink and hand wash area, oven and pie warmer.  New kitchen cupboards and benches have also been installed and rubber floor mats. Cath Kearney and Kirsty Samson coordinated the project.  With the remaining funds they hope to cement the verandah area and purchase new aluminium picnic tables and seating.

 

·    Cudal Tennis Club received a grant of $15,000

 

·    Kymberlee Chase will work with Cudal Tennis Club to restore and revitalise the local tennis courts and clubhouse to create a community venue accessible to all.  With rural mental health at the front of her mind, Kymberlee was spurred into action after the recent loss of the Royal Hotel in Cudal, destroyed by fire in mid-2015.  

          Together with a dedicated local committee, she is passionate about creating a      meeting place where her local community can get together, make social    connections and keep active, forming a vital support network for each other.

          The Community of Cudal is very proud of Kymberlee and the Cudal Tennis Club. We all realise that our little village is really struggling at the moment      and it is refreshing to hear such wonderful news.

          The Cudal Tennis Club re formed last year with an enthusiastic young          committee. This committee applied to the Royal Agricultural Society Foundation Community Grants Program to help make a difference to our          community. The committee comprising Kym Chase, Jo Balcomb, Jock Hough       and Matt Bowden initiated the idea of applying for a grant over 6 months ago.    They were notified at the end of November that they were short listed and         Kym subsequently had a phone interview with Robert Ryan RAS President    and RAS Foundation Board member, Robyn Clubb RAS Treasurer and RAS           Foundation board member, David Davidson RAS Councillor and  Kate Ross          Executive Officer RAS Foundation.  She must have done a marvellous job as        she heard at the beginning of February that the Tennis Club were successful    in obtaining $15,000 for upgrades and help with their mental health           awareness project.

          The Old Tennis Club folded in in February 2012 and remaining funds from the       club were deposited in the account of the Cudal Progress Association. The       courts and clubhouse are owned by Cabonne Council for the Cudal    Community.

          Meanwhile the Progress Association had asked Bunnings Store from Orange        for help and  were thrilled when in November 2011 Bunnings  supplied the     paint and painted the club house as a community project.  They also supplied  a small kitchen, BBQ, table, chairs and umbrella and plants and Christmas           lights.

·    Over the past few months Cudal Tennis Club has been working on    recommissioning the two outer courts. Dan Curran has been an enormous     contributor from Ecoscape Solutions. He has provided the machinery and       trucks and countless hours of his time to bring it all together. Today we         completed court 1 in time for the coaching clinic in the school holidays which         Darren Gersbach said he’d require to coach the 30 or so kids over the three days of 18, 19, 20 April. Ecoscape Solutions is in the landscaping industry    based in Orange and offer a range of services such as mulching, lawn        seeding, and landscape supplies.

          The family nights have been successful over the summer with up to 100 in   attendance.

 

·    Cudal M&D presented “Off the Hook” a three act Farce. The Cudal M&D are to be commended on bringing this entertaining show to fruition.

 

·    The Cudal Anglican Church held a very successful fete on 2 April 2016.

 

·    The Men’s Shed opening on the new site at Brown Street (Canowindra Road) was held on 11 March 2016. President Darcy Callan addressed the audience and welcomed John Cobb MP, Andrew Gee MP, Councillor Geoff Dean  and Peter Stephens President of the Cudal/Cargo Lions Club.  The building of the Men’s Shed would not have been possible without $30,000 donated by the Cudal/Cargo Lions Club. Peter Stephens as president of the Lions Club and Darcy jointly cut the ribbon to officially open the Shed. John Cobb was happy to announce $6250 in Commonwealth grants and Andrew Gee represented the state government giving $5300 in grants. Other grants to help towards the purchase of tool were FRRR $2300 and The Mens Shed Association $3500.

·    The Cudal Motor Inn has opened a café part time but hope to open longer hours soon-this is wonderful news for the residents and passing traffic.

·    Preparations are in hand for Anzac Day-the Dawn Service at Toogong at 6am and the Cudal Service at 10am. The Cabonne Food Wine and Cultural Centre will once again serve breakfast at a small cost from 7am.

·    Cudal had a team at the Relay for Life named the Cudal Community Spirit-money raised has not been finalised as yet.
