Recommendation

 

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

 

General Manager's 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.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council discuss and receive further information on the day of the meeting.

 

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

 

Background

 

Orana House has a considerable community history, the building is used by several community groups including, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, The Canowindra Creative Centre and the Canowindra Writers Group.

 

In recent years Orana House has fallen into disrepair. In September 2016 an engineering report was completed which identified $191,000 worth of works required to bring the building up to an acceptable standard.

 

Council held a workshop in December 2016 to inspect the building and discuss options. It further considered the matter at the December 2016 Council meeting and proposed to dispose of the building but decided to seek community feedback.

 

Eight submissions were received in favor of maintaining the building. After consideration of the submissions Council resolved to dispose of Orana House and use the funds from the sale, and other funds to refurbish the community facility in the HACC building. The Mayor, Deputy Mayor, General Manager and the Acting DFCS then met with users on the 20 June 2017. Further background information is attached.

 

The new Council elected in September 2017 resolved that the matter be put on hold pending further consultation. Consequently Council held a public meeting on Thursday 30 November 2017 to further discuss this issue.

 

This report details the outcomes from that meeting.

 

Analysis of Issues raised

 

A structural investigation was undertaken by Cook and Roe - Structural Engineers on the 4 September 2017. It concluded that the building was in poor condition with significant cracking in some areas.

 

Previously Council’s asset team inspected the building. As a result of this inspection $191,000 was identified as being needed to bring the building up to a satisfactory condition.

 

Many of the users have an emotional attachment to the building, and therefore seem to not want to consider other options. The community seem to feel that the Council is trying to take something off them because significant community money has gone into this facility in the past.

 

Finding a suitable alternate venue which caters to all user groups will be a challenge. Issues such as proximity to town, parking, a secure outdoor area and out of hours access, need to be considered.

 

Summary of points made at the Meeting

 

The minutes of the meeting are attached to this report for the information of Councilors.

 

ITEM 13 - RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT CROWDED PLACES

REPORT IN BRIEF

 

Reason For Report

To inform Council of new Crowded Places responsibilities and requirements for event organisers

Policy Implications

Nil

Budget Implications

IPR Linkage

2.2.1.a Promote strategies listed in the Tourism Plan

Annexures

Nil   

File Number

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT\REPORTING\COUNCIL REPORTS - 880378

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT individuals and organisations planning events on Council-owned or public land be required to undertake a crowded places vulnerability assessment and security audit, in addition to other conditions currently outlined in Council’s Procedure Manual for Planning a Public Event.

 

Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

On 22 November 2018, Council’s Community Engagement and Development Manager attended a forum in Dubbo on new requirements and controls relating to “crowded places”.

 

Conducted by the NSW Police Counter Terrorism & Special Tactics Command, the forum outlined new responsibilities and another level of compliance for event organisers and landowners relating to anti-terror measures.

 

The forum also included speakers from ASIO and the NSW Police Intelligence Unit. There was a strong message that the need to implement measures to protect crowded places was as necessary in country areas as the city.

 

The threat level at the time of the forum was described as “probable”.

 

Landowners and event organisers are responsible for protecting sites from a range of foreseeable threats, including terror attacks.

 

All event organisers now should undertake a “crowded places vulnerability assessment”. They should complete a crowded places security audit and a self-assessment via the www.securensw.gov.au or www.nationalsecurity.gov.au websites

 

Where the assessment score is above a certain level, event organisers (or councils where applicable) may have to engage accredited security consultants to provide suitable solutions.

 

These measures can include (but are not limited to) hostile vehicle mitigation measures, such as the installation of suitably-engineered bollards or barriers. Normal Traffic Control Plans are not considered to be a Hostile Vehicle Mitigation measure.

 

Security Plans should be provided along with Emergency Management Plans.

 

Security “posture” is also seen as critical, which generally means organisers of larger events may need to have security guards at entrances and exits.

 

In Cabonne’s case, this would be most likely to apply to the Australian National Field Days (ANFD) and Canowindra Challenge Balloon Glow.

 

Where regional events are held in a regular location at a regular time of the year, such as the Balloon Glow and ANFD, the Counter Terrorism Command has recommended that anti-terror planning start a year out from the event, not a couple a months from the date. Parkes Council has been consulting with the Counter Terrorism Command and local police regarding Crowded Places requirements for the 2018 Elvis Festival.

 

Council’s Community Engagement and Tourism Coordinator is in the process of producing a new, streamlined consent form and Procedure Manual for Planning a Public Event, and anti-terror responsibilities and requirements will be included in these documents.

 

The new forms and manual should be available early next year. In the meantime, Council will need to require individuals or organisations planning events to address anti-terror measures by undertaking a crowded places vulnerability assessment and security audit.

 

These measures would be in addition to the risk management assessment that event organisers are currently required to undertake.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council approve funding under the 2017/2018 Events Assistance Program (EAP) of $5,000 for the event F.O.O.D Week Inc.

 

 

Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

Council’s Community Development and Tourism Coordinator has provided the following assessment.

 

Council has received one application for funding under its 2017/2018 Events Assistance Program (EAP) for events to promote Cabonne and attract visitors to experience the area.

 

Application 1.

 

Organisation:                                     F.O.O.D of Orange District WEEK Inc

Event:                                                 F.O.O.D WEEK

Date:                                                   6 April – 15 April 2018

Requested Amount:                             $7,500

To be funded:                                                 A contribution towards the marketing and promotion of this annual major event.

Event Description

 

F.O.O.D Week will celebrate its 27th year in 2018 and is highly successful in marketing and promoting the regions many assets and attractions to a diverse audience. Today F.O.O.D Week consists of over 90 individual events over 10 days that show case the food and wine of the region as well as the many local businesses and tourist attractions on offer.

 

F.O.O.D Week is vital in marketing the region’s produce and restaurants to an extensive reach that includes the Sydney and Canberra region and beyond.

 

The benefit of F.O.O.D Week to the region is significant and includes:

 

·    Positive economic stimulus through spending in the local area

·    Huge media exposure and awareness of the region and attractions that help attract visitors during and after the event

·    Increases the profile and credibility as one of the country’s leading food and wine producing area.

·    Encourages collaboration and consultation amongst the region’s tourism industry which strengthens and presents new opportunities

·    Assists in education of the sector and its contribution towards a healthy sustainable future for the region and Australia

·    Increased visitation resulting in increased accommodation demand

 

During this event, several thousand people participate in the events, and statistics from 2017 indicate that many who attend F.O.O.D Week are return visitors to the area. In 2017 the festival attracted 18,000 attendees compared to 15,000 the previous year. The 2018 FOOD Week is aiming for 20,000 visitors to the area.

 

Income generated to the local economy is estimated to be at $2.5 million.

 

F.O.O.D Week Inc. applied for $7,500 to support the marketing of this event. The sponsorship will go towards the printing of 10,000 copies of the program and the distribution in Sydney, Canberra, regionally and locally.

 

Cabonne Council’s logo appears in all printed material, print advertising, the Cabonne banner erected at the night markets and Food Affair.

 

Assessment:

 

As F.O.O.D Week is a flagship event that meets the Events Assistance Program guidelines that provides a maximum of $5,000 which Cabonne Council has allocated in previous years to support the many events F.O.O.D Week offers and with a significant number held within the Cabonne Shire.

Submissions closed on 1 November 2017 for the supply and delivery of one Skip Loader Truck, in accordance with Council’s 10-year plant replacement program. The submissions were obtained through Local Government Procurement.

The evaluation panel consisted of the Fleet, Plant and Depot Coordinator, Plant Superintendent and the Skip Loader operator.

On Thursday 2 November the assessment team along with a representative from Tracserv Trucks, went to the West-Trans factory at Mulgrave, for a demonstration and evaluation of the West-Trans DS120, fitted to an Isuzu, FVR 165-300 cab chassis. The quality of the product was evident.  At the factory, it was indicated to the assessment panel that the Skip Loader can be altered in the manufacturing process to allow for options requested in the submission documentation. Guarding for hoses and wiring were also evident in the build quality of the West-Trans product. The ability to add or delete items in the manufacture stage is also critical.  Council currently operates a West-Trans DS90 Skip Loader and this unit has proven faultless.

The review that was undertaken, was conducted on a recently completed truck, with the setup of this unit being similar to Councils specifications.

On 15 November, the assessment panel went to Volvo Truck and Bus at Blacktown, for a demonstration and evaluation of the HIAB Multilift Futura 12, that was fitted to a Volvo Cab Chassis. The Cab Chassis carrying this unit was not offered in the submission. The evaluation was on the HIAB Multilift Futura 12.  This Skip Loader unit lacked build quality and strength and this was evident in the pricing.  Unlike the West-Trans DS120, this unit is mass-produced to fit different cab chassis combinations, and this was evident in the many holes drilled in the sub frame. Any alterations requested in the submission would require modification by a third party prior to delivery.

From the assessment it was quite evident of the 2 Skip Loaders that were assessed, the West-Trans DS120 was of superior quality and build strength and best suited council’s needs.

Recommendation

THAT Council approve funding of $30,000 from the Capital Reserve for the purchase and installation of all water and sewer related infrastructure for the new amenities building at the Cumnock Showground.

 

Operations Manager - Urban Services and Utilities' REPORT

In the 2016/2017 financial year, funding for a new Cumnock showground amenities building was allocated as per the related Asset Management Plan.  The project was not completed within this financial year due to varying factors outside Council’s control; this resulted in the project and consequent funding being revoted into the current financial year.

The project is progressing well and has reached the stage where water and sewer mains connection is required but it has become apparent that the original budgeted scope of works did not provide funding for these essential works.

For all sewer related works the funding required is $20,000 and for all water related works the funding required is $10,000 with funding to come from the Capital Reserves.

Director of Engineering & Technical Services' REPORT

Council is in the process of conducting a feasibility study report for the Molong Floodplain. This project has been ongoing for over 5 years and there has been a number of variations due to changes of scope from the Office of Environment and Heritage, old report data not being able to be correctly replicated and additional work required to recreate the modelling. It was considered logical to update the report to reflect the current drainage system that is place and hence add on any new drainage that has been installed. This was deemed more appropriate than simply using the original storm water data that was provided that has now significantly changed.   

As such, it is requested that an additional $45,000 be allocated to the present amount of $21,551 allocated for this job. This will allow sufficient funds to complete this project. The total project cost is expected to cost less than $100,000 with $46,444 having already been invoiced to Council. It is also noted that OEH will reimburse Council up to $60,601 at the completion of this report for expenses incurred.   

It is proposed that the funds come from the ‘project pre planning activities’ budget.

Recommendation

 

That council refuse the modification application 2016/128/2 seeking to amend conditions 28 and 29 of Development Consent 2016/128 for a limestone mine upon Lot 201 DP 1232203, Canomodine Lane, Canowindra and retain the conditions as written in the consent.

 

 

Director of Engineering & Technical Services' REPORT

An application has been received by council to modify development consent for DA 2016/128 for a limestone mine upon land described as Lot 201 DP 1232203, Canomodine Lane, Canowindra.

Applicant:          Westlime Quarries Pty Ltd c/- Andrew Commins

Owner:               Mr P Wythes

Proposal:           Modification to conditions 28 and 29 of the issued development consent

Location:            Lot 201 DP 1232203, Canomodine Lane, Canowindra

Zone:                  RU1 Primary Production

Background

Council at its meeting of 20 December 2016 approved DA 2016/128 for establishment of an open cut limestone mine upon part of a rural holding located approximately half way between Cargo and Canowindra, accessed off Canomidine Lane. Westlime Quarries Pty Ltd propose to extract and process on-site up to 250,000 tonnes per annum of limestone over a period of 27 years, for sale and distribution locally and regionally.

In August 2017, the development consent was modified to enable relocation of the mine site office and associated infrastructure. Council staff and State government agencies have been liaising with the developer to progress the various elements of the overall development consent.

The Proposal

The applicant seeks variation to Conditions 28 and 29 of the development consent. The two conditions of consent read as follows:

28. ROAD UPGRADES

Objective

It is in the public interest that environmental impacts be identified and effects mitigated.

Performance

The proponent is to deliver all road upgrades as deemed necessary by RMS and Cabonne Council, and to the satisfaction of those authorities, prior to transporting any products from the mine site, with the exception of those required for road upgrading purposes identified in this approval.

29. ROAD REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE CONTRIBUTION

Objective

To ensure that the impact of the development on infrastructure is considered and appropriately mitigated.

Performance

Within six (6) months of the issue of this consent the proponent is required to enter into an agreement with Cabonne Council for payment of an annual road repair and maintenance based upon the heavy vehicle traffic generation for the development.

The contribution to council will apply to the repair and maintenance of Cargo Road (MR 237) from its intersection with Canomodine Lane and the intersection with the Canowindra – Cudal Road (MR 310). The contribution calculation is to be established by Cabonne Council. The proponent’s contribution will also include the costs to council of engaging environmental management expertise.

The applicant states that they have held positive discussions with the relevant council staff regarding the above-mentioned conditions of consent, however uncertainty remains in that agreement has yet to be finalised in relation to the requirements of the two conditions of consent.

The applicant requests council amend the conditions of development consent as follows:

28. ROAD UPGRADES

Objective

It is in the public interest that environmental impacts be identified and effects mitigated.

Performance

Intersection of Cargo Road and Canomodine Lane

The proponent is to complete the design, bulk excavation, supply and delivery of all RMS specification DGB road base material. Council will undertake project management and supervision, provide required traffic control, place and compact delivered road base materials, undertake final trim and seal the intersection.

Anderson Hill radius / alignment

The proponent is to undertake the bulk earthworks, supply and deliver RMS specification DGB road base materials and remove the site excavated materials as required. Council will provide the required design, undertake project management and supervision, provide traffic control, place and compact delivered road base materials, undertake final trim and seal works as required. The proponent is to make the required road base available within two (2) months on being advised by council of the commencement of works.

29. ROAD REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE CONTRIBUTION

Objective

To ensure that the impact of the development on infrastructure is considered and appropriately mitigated and that Cargo Road between the intersections with Canomodine Lane and the Canowindra-Cudal Road can be appropriately used by B-double trucks.

Performance

The proponent is to provide the following for the maintenance and upgrading of the Cargo Road between the intersections with Canomodine Lane and the Canowindra- Cudal Road:

·    $6,000pa for minor road repairs. The contribution is to be indexed to CPI from 1 July 2017 and is to be payable by 31 Decemebr each year

·    15,000 tonne of DGB road base delivered for use by council for the repair and upgrade of the identified section of Cargo Road. The material is to be made available within two (2) months of being advised by council of the commencement of works.

·    A video recording documenting the condition of the identified section of Cargo Road. The video recording is to be provided prior to commencement of transportation of products from the mine.

The conditions of development consent as issued were imposed in response to the assessed environmental impact of the development proceeding. The requirements of conditions 28 and 29 relate to the impact on local roads and traffic generated by the development proceeding (in other words, addressing road deterioration over and above that generated by current road usage).

The implementation of the road maintenance conditions of consent relating to the mine approval should not be the responsibility of council or the wider community to facilitate. The conditions of consent as written require a contribution or levy to be paid annually by the developer towards the repair and maintenance of Cargo Road between its intersection with Canomodine Lane and MR 310 (Canowindra to Cudal road).

The existing condition of consent also enables council to engage technical advice to assist it in negotiation an agreement with the developer, and that the costs incurred by council be reimbursed by the developer. The intent was for the preparation of a Voluntary Planning Agreement of similar to ensure a legally binding agreement was obtained for the benefit of the local community.

The developer has provided a written proposal that may be addressed through a Memorandum of Understanding. The matter has been referred to council’s legal advisor for review and comment.

The requested version removes council’s ability to engage technical expert advice to ensure the community’s wider interests are addressed, and to recover those costs from the developer.

Intent was a VPA or suitable legal agreement that basically provided council a levy that would financially address the impact to council and the community from road deterioration resulting from the development proceeding.

Given that negotiations to achieve conditions 28 and 29 are in progress it is suggested that the status quo be maintained and the conditions of consent remain unaltered.

Recommendation

 

THAT the proposed modification be refused on the basis that it is in contradiction to Council’s Water Supply Policy.

 

 

Operations Manager - Urban Services and Utilities' REPORT

 

BACKGROUND

Council at its meeting of 18 July 2011 approved to amend condition 19 of development consent DA 2006/251 to read:

 

“A centralised water reticulation system for the estate is to be provided for external use throughout the site. In conjunction with this, a prohibition on the sinking of individual bores is to be created via a legally appropriate and effective means.

 

·   A section 88b instrument is to be created on each new allotment requiring each dwelling to install a 90,000 litre rainwater tank for a potable water supply.

 

·   The applicant is required to bear full cost of an extension of the raw water main to the development which is to be constructed strictly in accordance with the Water Supply Authority (Cabonne Council) specification. A Compliance Certificate for the works is to be submitted for the Supply Authority.  All relevant works are to be completed before the issue of the subdivision certificate.

 

·   The applicant is required to connect each lot to the raw water supply before issue of a Subdivision Certificate by applying directly to the relevant water supply authority and bearing the full cost of the connection fee. A Compliance Certificate is to be provided to Council’s Environmental Services Department from the relevant Water Supply Authority.

 

·   Council reserves the right at any time to restrict the supply of water to the development, as the supply of water to the village takes first precedent, and the owners shall abide by water restrictions at all times.

 

·   The raw water supply is to be used for domestic purposes only, irrigation use is not permitted.

 

·    A section 88b instrument is to be placed on the linen plan for each allotment indicating to the prospective purchaser as such.”

 

THE PROPOSAL

 

The applicant has submitted a modification, which seeks to modify the wording of Condition 19 ‘Water Supply’ of development consent DA 2006/251, to remove the required connection to Council’s raw water main and replacing it with a connection to Molong’s potable water supply to service the 73-lot subdivision.

 

DISCUSSION

 

It has been explained to Council staff that previous discussions in relation to the possibility of connecting Molong’s reticulated water system have been held between the owner of the land and the applicant with ex senior Council staff.

 

A search of Council record is unable to find evidence of these discussions, however it was lead to believe that these discussions implied that there was a sufficient bulk water capacity within the Molong reticulated water supply to accommodate servicing a potable town water supply the 73-lot subdivision.  Further assessment by Council staff has revealed that since the supply of potable water to Cumnock and Yeoval scheme coming online, there is insufficient potable bulk water supply available to service each allotment at full capacity.

 

This has resulted in the applicant proposing to limit the supply of potable water for each allotment to a peak supply of 1500 litres per day, as opposed to the normal 5000 litres per day by placing a positive covenant on the title of the subdivision under Section 88b of the Conveyancing Act. This would require an amendment of Council’s current Water Supply Policy.

 

CONCLUSION

 

Whilst the proposed modification has merit and offers some benefits to the consumer, the land is currently zoned as R5 – Large Lot Residential.

 

Council’s current Water Supply Policy states:

 

“That no new water main extensions or connections to the Molong Water Supply Scheme are to be authorized outside the village zone except for the north side of South Street between George Street and Peabody Road subject to:

·    Applicants meeting full cost of mains construction.

·    Applicant meeting Council’s headworks connection charge”

 

Based on this, Council is unable to approve the connection of a potable water supply to the 73 lot subdivision without making necessary changes to the current Water Supply Policy.

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

 

Applicant:          Hi Tech Homes

Owner:               MA & MT Uppal

Proposal:           Eight (8) detached residential units and strata subdivision

Location:            Lot 3 DP 1165660 60 Edward St, Molong

Zone:                  R1 General Residential     

 

BACKGROUND

 

On 3 August 2006 Council approved Development Application (DA) 2006/148 which consisted of a two lot subdivision, conversion of the former church building into two residential apartments, four townhouses, four villas and strata title subdivision. Part of the development was completed

 

Council then approved subdivision of the land in Development Application 2010/183. The subdivision effectively created two smaller allotments, which each contain the former school house units, and a vacant ‘L’ shaped allotment. 

 

A Development Application (DA 2014/165) was lodged 13th May 2014 for twelve (12) residential units and community title subdivision of Lot 3 DP 1165660. The application was later withdrawn prior to any determination.

 

The subject Development Application (2016/173) was lodged on  22 June 2016 and neighbor notified as per Councils notification policy. Six (6) submisisons in objection to the proposed development were received. The proponent later addressed the issues raised in the objections and the heritage advisors report and lodged revised plans to Council. The revised plans were re-notified to adjoining residents and five (5) objections were received regarding the proposed development.

 

The PROPOSAL

 

Council approval is sought to erect eight (8) two and three bedroom residential units and strata title subdivision into nine allotments, including community open space (driveway) and easements for stormwater and sewer.

 

Residential Units

 

The proposed units will be staggered around the L shaped allotment and will each have individual private green space separated by boundary fences and internal fences. The homes consist of 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom manufactured buildings which are to be transported whole to the site. External construction materials are Hardie Primeline Cladding walls and colorbond roof sheeting with a fake chimney (timber frame with textured paint finish).

 

Vehicle access to each proposed unit will be via a common internal driveway which connects to Edward Street. Each proposed unit includes an attached carport and visitor parking space.

 

Each unit shall be connected to services including reticulated town sewer, potable water, power and telecommunications.

Fig 2. Unit 8 elevations (Drawing No. 16-999-09, dated 20 April 2016)

 

Strata Subdivision

 

The proposal includes strata title subdivision of the land into nine (9) separate allotments comprising eight (8) residential lots and one common lot (containing gardens and driveway). As noted above, eight of the nine allotments are proposed to be connected to services including sewer, power & water.

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

 

SEPP 55 requires Council to consider the former uses of the site and potential for land contamination within the context of the proposed development.

 

The site is identified as the former school playground with the actual school buildings being on a separate title to the south. Evidence of the former school yard include an old wall and foundations of a former amenities block. Otherwise, there are no other known buildings, relics or remnants from the school or any other land use.

 

With reference to the EPA’s Contaminated Land Information System, a school is not identified as a land-use which could potentially contain contaminants. Also, upon inspection of the site there were no features observed (ie waste, drains, disturbed soil or odor). In consideration of this, further investigation of the site is not required for the proposed development to proceed and the site is suitable in the context of SEPP 55.

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 15 – Relocatable and Transportable Homes applies to the land.

 

Section 3 Requirements

 

3.1 When must work be completed?

 

Once the transportable or relocated dwelling has been placed on site all work, including external painting is to be completed within a period of six (6) months. A condition will be imposed on the development consent that gives the applicant a timetable for when works should be completed. The condition is based on requirements listed under the DCP.

 

3.2 What are the structural requirements?

 

Subject to section 68 approval.

 

3.3 What bonds are payable?

 

No bonds are applicable for new transportable dwellings.

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 proposed new dwelling will be setback 11m from the lot boundary on Edward Street. This is in accordance with Council’s setback policy which requires a minimum of 8 metres in a residential zone. All other setbacks to boundaries comply with BCA requirements. The proposed site design and layout is considered to be satisfactory and the development (residential) is consistent with zone objectives. Adequate arrangements can be made for services and utilities including sewer and water. The proposal is considered to be satisfactory in terms of site design & internal design.

 

Visual amenity

 

The proposed development is likely to have an impact on the residential views from the existing neighbouring properties. However, due to the topography of the site, any impact is considered to be minor. Furthermore, visual impact will be lessened by mandatory landscaping including gardens and boundary fencing. In terms of external construction materials, the proposed new dwellings are made of non-reflective matetials comprising Hardi Primeline Cladding and colorbond roof sheeting. The pitch of the roof is set to 22° to try and incorporate the proposed new buildings into a neighbourhood comprising predominantly heritage listed buildings and places.

 

Access & traffic

Vehicle access to the site is via an existing access which connects to Edward Street. This access is required to be upgraded and RMS have provided comment on the proposed new access design. A draft condition is included to ensure the proposed new access and internal driveway complies with RMS requirements.

 

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.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING AND BUILDING POLICIES

 

Medium Density Housing

 

The number of dwellings permissible on a particular site will depend on an acceptable population density of 16 people per 2,000 square metres and will be calculated on the following occupancy rates:  One Bedroom Dwelling 1.5 persons; Two Bedroom Dwelling 2.2 persons; Three Bedroom Dwelling 3.3 persons. This is calculated at one person per 125m2.

 

The maximum number of people on site is 22 persons (prior to strata subdivision). The site has a total area of 3,157m2. This is calculated at a rate of one person per 143.5m2.

The total probable number of people living onsite is less than the maximum density (as calculated above).

 

Space Requirements

 

An area of approximately 50 square metres of private open space should be provided for each dwelling with the minimum dimension of such space being no less than approximately 5 metres.

 

Community Open Space is also encouraged to  be provided at the rate of approximately 30 square metres per person. This requirement may be varied where extra private space for each dwelling is provided.

 

Drying Areas for each dwelling will be provided and will include sufficient length of clothes line. Such areas should be suitably screened from public view.

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

 

The initial plans were neighbour notified and seven (7) submissions were received in objection to the development. The application was then placed on ‘stop the clock’ pending additional information. When revised plans were submitted to Council, the proposal was re-notified and five (5) submissions were received in objection to the revised proposal. Issues raised in the submissions are summarized as follows:-

 

Submission 1

 

-     Design is not sympathetic to heritage character of the area

-     Proposed unit 8 is too close to adjacent property & sheds. Is likely to create noise and privacy issues of both properties.

 

Submission 3

 

-     Hardiplank prefab construction is out of character with the area

-     The two units fronting Edward Street wont have heritage façade of other homes in the street

-     Noise issue of additional traffic using the site

-     Removal of trees will reduce shade and detract from visual appeal

-     Concerns about site design and stormwater design and water run-off

-     No details provided of boundary fence

 

Submission 4

 

-     Low cost, prefabricated design does not compliment streetscape.

-     Increased noise from development will impact upon privacy and enjoyment of nearby properties

-     Lack of provision of visitor parking

-     Removal of trees will impact streetscape

-     Concerns as to management of stormwater runoff

-     Overdevelopment of the site

 

Submission 5

 

-     Concern regarding ability of development to address stormwater management

 

Submission 6

 

-     Concern that development will detract from the area and affect real estate values

 

Submission 7

 

-     Objection to construction activity commencing at 7 30 am

 

Submission 8

 

-     Development will not enhance streetscape and may be detrimental to property values

-     Development will generate additional traffic and noise

-     Development should reflect heritage character of the established dwellings in area

 

Submission 9

 

-     Privacy and impact from exterior lighting

-     Land of space for children to play

-     Impact of increased traffic within the site

-     Stormwater management and impact upon existing stormwater easement

-     Prefab building design out of character to existing heritage buildings in area

 

Submission 10

 

-     Proposed development does not compliment heritage character of the area

-     Location of waste, recycling & materials storage space in view of the street is unsightly

-     Proposed construction materials, and scale of development, pose risk to land values and overall appeal of the area

 

Submission 11

 

-     The design of the development should be sympathetic to the existing built form. The development looks like a caravan park.

-     Medium density housing could create social issues

-     Privacy issues between existing and proposed units, due to slope of land and overlooking. Request 1.8m high boundary fencing to be established at cost of developer and of a style suited to heritage properties

-     Lack of adequate off-street parking will impact onstreet parking

-     Increase noise – traffic and landuse

-     Opposed to removal of trees from site

-     Concerns re. availability of development

-     Insufficient stormwater drainage

 

Submission 12

 

-     Objection to design of units, comparing the development to ‘little boxes’

 

Issue

Comment

Not in keeping with heritage character of the area

 

See cl 5.10 heritage assessment

Impact to privacy

 

The proposed new units are sited for minimal impact to privacy of adjoining residents. Also, new  boundary fencing will be erected so as to protect privacy of new residents as well as existing neighbouring residents.  Where mature landscaping is proposed to be removed, new plantings will be established. Due to the layout and house orientation, the proposed development is not likely to have major effect on privacy of adjoining residents.

 

Detract value of adjoining properties

 

The impact to value of adjoining properties is not a matter for consideration in a development assessment report.

 

Stormwater run-off and drainage

 

There is an existing stormwater easement which drains water to Shields Lane and then to Bank Street. The proponent is required to undertake and submit to Council a stormwater report to demonstrate there would be no effect on downstream properties or Council’s existing stormwater network. Any changes are to be noted in final stormwater design.

 

Visual Impact

 

The proposed dwellings are considered acceptable for the area in terms of external construction materials and design.

 

 

Noise and air pollution

 

There will be no adverse impact from the development to noise and air pollution. Construction noise will be regulated as per industry standards – this is included in the draft conditions of consent.

 

Inadequate visitor parking

 

There is one off-street visitor park for each proposed unit. This is considered adequate for the scale of the development (small two and three bedroom dwellings)

 

Removal of trees

(Impact to biodiversity)

 

The trees that are required to be removed are not native species. Rather, introduced species that were part of the former school gardens. The trees are not considered to be critical habitat for endangered species and local woodlands can provide for an effective alternative.

 

Overdevelopment of the lot

 

The site is close to the Molong CBD where new development is typically more dense and lot sizes are smaller. As adequate arrangements can be made for private open space and off-street parking, it is considered the development is not an overdevelopment of the site. Furthermore, site density and residential occupancy rates complies with Council’s Medium Density Housing Policy.  

 

Lack of boundary fence plans

 

The applicant has indicated it is proposed to construct a boundary fence around the perimeter of the lot. While no details of boundary fence dimensions or materials have been provided in the application, the fence details should be provided to Council prior to an approved to place the units on-site.  

 

Social Impact

 

The strata scheme will ensure the site is managed effectively in terms of site maintenance. Also, each unit has a window facing the common area (internal driveway) which offers adequate surveillance for residents. As such, it is considered there will be no adverse impact from the proposed development in terms of social impact or increased crime.

 

 

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. 

 

CRIME AND SAFETY ASSESSMENT

 

The context for assessment of safety, security and crime prevention is based on the principles of territorial reinforcement, surveillance, access control and space management.

 

Territorial reinforcement

Each proposed unit will have its own private open space separate to the common open space. New lot boundaries are defined by fencing and landscaping which clearly separates each space. As such, there would be no confusion as to the difference between the two spaces. 

 

Surveillance

The proposed new buildings are each facing inward or towards the common area (driveway). This helps to promote natural surveillance of common areas and all entrances.  Similarly, unit entrances are not hidden from view and are easily accessible. The site is designed so there are no dormant spaces or areas of entrapment within the common space, for residents and visitors alike. 

 

Access Control

There is a single entry/exit point to the site via Edward Street with nominated parking for residents. Each unit is then easily accessible from the front or rear. All vehicles or pedestrians must enter and exit via the same access point which both promotes natural surveillance and greatly reduces the amount of traffic on the site. Lighting of the access point will be provided by existing street lighting on Edward Street.

 

Space Management

The site will continue to be managed by a Strata Scheme that sets out how the space will be utilised and outlines owners corporation expenses for essential service, repairs/maintenance on common property and any additional administrative costs. This will help to achieve high levels of security and crime prevention at the site.

 

CONCLUSION

 

The proposed development 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.

Item 12 Ordinary Meeting 12 December 2017

Item 12 - Annexure 2

 

 

Present:

From Council: GM, DFACS, DETS, Cr Newson, Cr Beatty, Cr Batten, Cr Weaver, Cr Nash, Cr Jones.

From Community: The attendance sheet recorded 30 members of the public in attendance.

Apologies: Nil

The meeting was opened by the Mayor at 6:01pm

The General Manager gave a background.

Engineering Report completed on 4 Sept 2016 - $190K worth of works required.

Council considered the issue in a November Council report. It proposed to dispose of the building but decided to seek community feedback and submissions were received in favour of maintaining the building.

After consideration of the submissions Council resolved to dispose of Orana House and use funds from the sale, and offer funds to refurbish the Community facility in the Hall building. The General Manager, Mayor and Deputy Mayor met with users on 20 June.

The new Council resolved that the matter be put on hold pending further consultation.

Sylvia Skelton

·    The timing of the meeting is poor, it should have been held at a later time in the day.

·    The Council has put no money into it and the community has put a lot of money into it.

·    It is due to Council neglect of the drainage that has caused the rear of the building to sink.

·    It is not practical for community use to use a Council building due to access reasons

·    It would be good if Council could give us something complimentary – a like property needs to be found in town.

Mayor – The whole aim of the process is to get you into a better facility. The building is falling down. We are spending more money on it than it is worth.

GM - Council is responsible for all Community buildings (Not just this one). The far side of the HACC building (is a good option). We are going to knock out walls and make it more useable behind the Library. Making that as the Community Building. Additional money will be used to fix up the damage that has been caused.

 

Isabelle McClaire – From the Arise group. We need a secure yard that no one else can get into.

GM - This point was not included in any of the submissions.

Bronwyn Everly – From the NAMA group. We use the yard regularly. We need a secure fenced in area. An outdoor area that we can use in confidence is paramount to us.

Rebecca Lord – From the CCC Group. We use it for Mosaics PG is not the only group who use it.

GM – the user groups have not payed enough for the use of the centre. The committee must charge enough to cover the cost of running the building. Council has never received money from the Orana Group.

Deb Rutter – Canowindra Creative Centre have people with varied levels of needs. The facilities of Orange house are ideal for catering to the needs of these people. We have shared space which allows people to move around the building. The experience is very empowering.

Cr Nash – Where has the money gone?

Deb Rutter – Things broke down when the trustee committee members moved – No signatories. The Bank Account is now up to speed. We are covering consumables & electricity. The Writers group is the only group that would survive if we moved.

Lyn Stevenson – There is water damage due to the guttering & the flooding of the back lane

Don Percival – Why don’t you sell it to the Community?

GM – We are currently investigating this making sure that we cover Public Probity.

Dan Pyskir – Initial petition is quite overwhelming with 300 plus signatures, don’t be too hasty in dismissing Orana, if put to tender it could be done for a lot less than $190,000. It is a venue that has a lot more to it than bricks and mortar. It is a location that has parking and amenities.

Mayor – Hypothetically would the community be willing to buy Orana House for $1.

A show of hands indicated that the majority of those present would be willing to take the property if Council offered it.

Ross Cleary – That is a separate and bigger discussion an unfair question. The users of Orana House do not translate to the building in Gaskill Street. The back yard is internal, Council has to maintain it. Access is different for a Council Building.

Cr Newson – To Deb Rutter. How would you move forward financially and make Orana House more sustainable? Can we survive? What are the alternatives? 

Deb Rutter – The problem is on-going maintenance. We need a large infrastructure grant. Is this possible? Can we create a trust comprising members of the user groups? Cr Durkin suggested a Section355 committee.

Don Percival – The Lions club may be involved with Orana House again. The Lions club fundraised to set up the children’s play area.

Sylvia Skelton - $190,000 is not a lot of money in light of additional money that would otherwise need to be spent.

Rebecca Lord – Money people from out of town use on Orana House.

GM – Council has responsibility for Council buildings. Is it worth spending $190,000 on this building which is not worth much?

Deb Rutter – Is Council prepared to go through my figures?

Mayor – Yes, but do the figures allow for the repairs to be up to structural standard? Council must go to public tender.

Paul Matthews – Cr Newson seems surprised at the level of emotion. After-hours access is essential.

Mayor – Possible solutions being the HACC office. Is there another location? The old Court House?

Christine Sampson – Why wasn’t the building maintained?

Mayor – No one can answer that we are looking forward.

Christine Sampson – You cannot put a price on the life changing experiences that happened in that building.

Mayor – Can that be done somewhere else? Is this about a purpose built building?

Don Percival – Want communities to be better places. OH is a real Hub for community building. If another place could fulfil all of the requirements then that may work. Recognition of the history associated with the building is important.

Is there a way that Council could make the HACC office into a facility and keep Orana House as a museum to preserve the history? Could we have both?

Mayor – Very difficult to leave Orana House there if we move Orana House would deteriorate.

Don Percival – People need to know what’s happening we need to trust you again. If we are not there CCC will fold. The only group that will survive is the writers group.

Listen to the community. Do something about the building so that they will trust you again.

Norm Henderson – passion & tradition make up the community. Council and user groups need to look at this $190k. The $190k is not too high for what you are getting.

 

Time frame – Mayor: will be discussed at the next meeting and will push any decision  into Feb 18.
