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:

 

1.   Accept an invitation from Service NSW to join the Easy to do Business Program.

2.    Authorise the General Manager to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with Service NSW regarding the Easy to do Business Program.

 

Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

Cabonne Council has been invited by Service NSW, a NSW Government agency, to be part of its Easy to do Business program. Being implemented in conjunction with the NSW Small Business Commissioner Robyn Hobbs, the initiative aims to make it easier to open and run businesses in the State.

 

Service NSW is creating a new way for businesses to interact with government through one online portal, which aims to provide step-by-step guidance and support across Federal, State and Local Government requirements.

 

Service for NSW says benefits for Councils include:

 

1.   Increased productivity with “decision ready” applications and reduced transaction costs; and

2.   Effective tools to help boost local economies, help create jobs and assist councils to deliver on their strategic plans.

At the moment the program applies to cafes, small bars and restaurants, however there are plans to extend it to the housing and construction industry in the near future and other sectors of business as the program expands.  Cafes, small bars and restaurants are a good example of the red tape that operators currently have to work through to establish a business. Opening one of these businesses can involve dealing with up to 13 agencies, 75 regulations and 48 forms.

 

Easy to do Business aims to reduce this to one digital application and one phone number.

 

Joining the program requires Council to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding. Council’s obligations would be to:

 

a.   Refer eligible customers to Easy to do Business;

b.   Provide guidance and information to the Easy to do Business team to assist them to respond to customers queries;

c.   Communicate application outcomes to the customer and the Easy to do Business team;

d.   Provide updates on changes in the local area that may impact Easy to do Business;

e.   Identify local events and other opportunities to inform customers about Easy to do Business; and

f.    Provide feedback on the effectiveness and performance of Easy to do Business in the Cabonne area.

A copy of a draft Memorandum of Understanding is attached as an annexure.

 

Service NSW anticipates 80 NSW councils will be part of the Easy to do Business Program by 30 June 2018.

 

Easy to do Business dovetails with Council’s recently adopted Regional Economic Development Strategy. This strategy builds on Cabonne’s assets and resources to attract growth and businesses to create increased employment opportunities.

File Number

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\GOVERNMENT RELATIONS\LOCAL AND REGIONAL LIAISON\COUNTRY MAYORS ASSOCIATION OF NSW - 933964

 

 

Recommendation

 

THAT Council approve membership of the Country Mayors Association and authorise attendance of quarterly meetings by the Mayor and General Manager.

 

 

General Manager's REPORT

 

The Mayor and General Manager recently attended the June meeting of the Country Mayors Association. This was a result of an invitation extended by the Chairperson, Cr Katrina Humphries for the Mayor to attend as an observer to see how membership could benefit Cabonne.

 

The objective of the Country Mayors Association is to further the interests of country councils by being an advocate on state-wide issues and to act as an information sharing forum. Those councils eligible for membership are country councils outside the Greater Sydney area, Newcastle and Wollongong metropolitan areas.   Currently there are 61 member councils with meetings attended by the Mayors and General Managers of the member councils.   Attached is a copy of the Association’s constitution.

 

The cost of membership for councils with a population of 10,000 or more is $750 per annum.  Membership fees are decided at the Annual General Meeting, which is held in November each year and are used to pay a secretariat, any room hire fees and the cost of morning tea and lunch.   Accumulated fees are available to be used to further the interests of country councils such as lobbying and undertaking research to allow submissions to be prepared to government on issues affecting member councils.

 

The meeting proved to be a very productive forum for networking and discussion and provided valuable personal access to senior public servants to raise areas of concern.  A copy of the minutes of the meeting is attached for council’s information.

 

 

ITEM 10 - ADOPTION OF INTEGRATED PLANNING AND REPORTING DOCUMENTATION

REPORT IN BRIEF

 

Reason For Report

Director of Finance and Corporate Services' REPORT

 

The Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework was introduced by the NSW Office of Local Government in 2009. As Cabonne has elected a new Council it is required to adopt a new set of Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) Documents. These will be the guiding documents for the remainder of the term for the current council.

 

IR&R documentation consists of a Community Strategic Plan (CSP), Delivery Program (DP), an Operational Plan (OP) and associated financials (Budget) and a Resourcing Strategy which is comprised of a Long Term Financial Plan (LTFP), a Workforce Management Plan (WMP), and a suite of Asset Management Plans (AMPs).

 

On this occasion council decided not to produce a new CSP as it is not required to and the existing document still articulates the broad future directions of the community. The Delivery Program articulates the strategic outcomes of council over the next three years (normally this is a four year document) which are aligned to the future directions stated in the CSP.

 

The Operational Plan and Budget are one year documents which outline and fund specific activities for 2018/2019. This includes a full list of council’s fees and charges which contains all of council’s Water, Sewer, Domestic Waste Management and Stormwater charges.

 

The Long Term Financial Plan forecasts council’s financial position out to 2027/2028. It shows council to be financially sustainable in the long term.

 

The Workforce Management Plan and Asset Management Plans are three year documents which show the labour and assets required to attain the outcomes specified in the DP.

 

As required by the Local Government Act, 1993, council considered these draft plans at the extra-ordinary meeting held on 8 May, 2018. These draft plans were placed on public exhibition for a minimum 28 days, concluding on Friday 8 June, 2018.

 

Council received a number of submissions, which were considered at the extra-ordinary meeting held on 12 June, 2018. The resolutions relating to these submissions, and consequential changes to the IP&R documentation, are detailed in the minutes of the 12 June meeting. None of the submissions  resulted in significant changes to these documents.

 

A copy of the amended plans and amended fees and charges have been forwarded to councillors on their iPads.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council contribute $1,000 to Yeoval Central School for costs associated with activities held in Youth Week.

 

Community Services Manager's REPORT

 

Each year council receives a grant from the NSW Government to support Youth Week Activities. This year the grant was $1,425.

 

Cabonne Council advertised NRL Development Clinics for students from Canowindra High School, Yeoval Central School and Molong Central School.  The format of the day was to be a one-hour clinic for each of the secondary schools, with transport provided at no cost. Morning tea and lunch were also provided and the event was free of charge. Unfortunately, this event was not well attended with only 20 students participating.

 

Dave Elvy, Alex Pout and Tilly Power from NRL Regional Game Development, Western NSW attended and ran a one-hour clinic for those who participated. The students all enjoyed themselves and had the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new students from other schools. Participants were given NRL merchandise at the end of the clinic. Council contributed $425 from its Youth Week funding.

 

Yeoval Central School held a school sports day at the Yeoval Golf Course, with the school providing lunch to all students in attendance. The students had a great day and high achievers were given awards for their performances.

 

Two Year 11 students from Yeoval Central School attended a Halogen Leadership Conference in Sydney in Term 2. Yeoval Central School also paid for flights to Sydney for both students, and visits to Government and Parliament House.

 

The Halogen Leadership Conference for secondary school students is designed to benefit any student who shows an interest in developing their leadership potential. Over 23,000 students from around Australia attend annually.

 

There is also an Expo at the conference venue, which allows students to gather information on tertiary educators, charities and not-for-profits who all have valuable information for future career opportunities, volunteer opportunities and leadership development opportunities.

 

In addition to these Youth Week activities, students from Molong Central, Yeoval Central and Canowindra High School addressed the May Council meeting.

 

All secondary schools within Cabonne were contacted and asked if they required a contribution toward Youth Week activities,  with only Yeoval Central School replying.

Samantha Whiteman is a Cudal local who is organising the “Help Our Aussie Farmers Silent Auction” as a fundraising event to raise funds for Australian farmers affected by the drought. All money raised at the event will be donated to the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners to assist with delivery of stock feed to farmers in NSW and Queensland. Assistance is sought to purchase an item for the silent auction.

 

Cargo Public School is a small school with only 22 enrolments for 2018. The school is seeking assistance to purchase and install an outdoor gym at the school oval. The school has implemented a 10 minute fitness program each morning to increase mobility, agility and stamina to promote health and wellbeing of the students.

 

An outdoor gym will not only benefit the school children and improve their health and fitness, and may also benefit the local community.

 

A “Feel Good BBQ Event” is proposed for 1 July 2018 to be held at the Molong Pony Club grounds. This event is aimed at providing mental health support for the local farmers and general community affected by the drought.

 

Dianne Gill, Rural Adversity Mental Health Project Coordinator has also been contacted to offer professional support and services to those who may require assistance.

 

A donation is being sought to ensure the event is as prosperous and enjoyable as possible.

 

Should Council wish to make these donations there remains $406 in the s.356 budget for donations this financial year.

Recommendation

 

THAT Council approves Community Assistance Program (CAP) funding for applications 1 - 8 as recommended in the report.

 

Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

Council allocated $66,905 in its current budget for the 2017/18 Community Assistance Program (CAP).  Not-for-profit community groups were invited to apply for community-related projects on non-commercial facilities in the Cabonne Local Government Area, which provide ongoing or sustainable benefits to Cabonne communities.

 

Grants are allocated on a 50:50 basis, but communities can provide their half of the funding through voluntary labour or in-kind contributions.

 

In October, Council approved funding for 14 applications for projects totalling $31,990.88. This left $34,954.12 available for a second round of CAP funding.

 

Nine applications have been submitted for funding under this second round, eight of which meet the program guidelines. An application from the Orange-based Central West Epilepsy Support Group fell outside the CAP guidelines of improving the life style of Cabonne communities on non-commercial facilities within Cabonne Shire. This application was for a contribution towards the wages of a part-time epilepsy nurse to cover the Central West region.

4.  Cabonne Council’s membership of Orange Region Tourism Ltd be conditional on Orange Region Tourism Ltd using Cabonne Council’s logo on any marketing, promotional or communication collateral. 

 

Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

At its Extraordinary Meeting on 8 May 2017, Council resolved to commit $64,141.60 from its Reserve Funds to join Orange and Blayney Councils to become a member of Orange Region Tourism Ltd for 2017/18 and that a review be undertaken before the end of that term to determine Council’s commitment for years 2018-19 and 2019-20.

 

Orange Region Tourism has provided its Profit and Loss Statement from 1 July 2017 to 31 March 2018 and its annual budget estimate overview for consideration (attached an annexures). The estimated budget overview projected a total annual income of $993,004 and expenditure of $966,867 for a surplus of $26,137 on 2017-2018 operations. The Profit and Loss Statement shows a net surplus of $76,718 at the end of March. This situation will improve with the payment of Cabonne Council’s 2017-18 contribution.

 

In addition to a $377,000 contribution from Orange City Council and $50,000 from Blayney Council, Orange Region Tourism has received $150,000 from the NSW Department of Primary Industries for the strategic development of agri-tourism initiatives. Late last month the organisation received a further $20,000 from the NSW Government’s Incubator Event Fund to stage the Orange Winter Fire Festival. Both the Winter Fire Festival and development of agri-tourism will benefit Cabonne.

 

Orange Region Tourism has set a target of 300 industry members by 2018 for an annual income of $108,000. By the end of March 2018, income from membership fees totalled only $33,481, so the organisation still has some significant work ahead of it to ensure industry members, who could possibly benefit most from Orange Region Tourism’s operations, contribute a reasonable share.

 

It is still of some concern that projected salaries ($411,605), administration ($106,887), trading costs ($40,325) and property costs ($35,600) total more than $594,000, leaving $372,450 for marketing and events. This means the marketing budget for a tourism promotional organisation represents 38.5% of the organisation’s total expenditure.  However, latest figures released by Destination NSW show overnight visitation in the Central West jumped by 21.2% to the end of December 2017, with 2.5 million people staying in the region. Those visitors spent $970 million, an increase of 17%.  By comparison, overnight visitation in the Hunter was up by 8.7% and the Blue Mountains 7.7%.

 

An integral part of Cabonne’s Tourism Plan is to work on a regional basis with organisations such as Destination NSW, Orange Region Tourism and the Central Regional Organisation of Councils through Central NSW Tourism to bring people to the area and then encourage them to visit Cabonne towns and villages.  For that reason, it is important that Cabonne continues to be a partner in Orange Region Tourism.  In doing so, Council may wish to consider formulating a service agreement as part of its future contributions that stipulates 50% of Cabonne’s Orange Region Tourism membership fee must be spent on promoting Cabonne towns and villages.

 

Ongoing funding would be dependent on Orange Regional Tourism providing a satisfactory acquittal report demonstrating the organisation had allocated 50% of Cabonne’s annual contribution to marketing the villages of Cabonne.

TOURISM AND Community Engagement and Development Manager's REPORT

 

Council has received two applications under the 2017/2018 Events Assistance Program (EAP) for events that promote Cabonne and attract visitors. Council’s Tourism and Community Development Coordinator has provided the following assessment.

 

Application 1

 

Organisation:                               Molong Bowling Club Ltd

Event:                                             David Wicks Memorial Tournament

Date:                                               1 & 2 September 2018

Requested amount:                    $2,500

Reason for funding:                             A contribution towards offsetting the marketing, promotion, event management commitments and trophies.

 

Event Description

 

Molong Bowling Club Inc. is holding a bowls pairs tournament over two days in September at the Molong Bowling Club. The tournament will be widely promoted throughout New South Wales and within the Central West. The organisers estimate the event will attract more than 56 bowlers and with their accompanying families, this will potentially bring an additional 150-200 people to Molong.   

 

The David Wicks Memorial Tournament was supported under Council’s Events Assistance Program in 2017 and attracted bowlers from various clubs throughout NSW, QLD, VIC, and SA. The weekend provides a great opportunity for visitors to enjoy the Molong charm and help to increase the local visitor economy.

 

The Molong Bowls Tournament will showcase Molong and the surrounding area and help to attract interest and potential repeat visitors due to their memorable experience.  The event will also raise the profile and awareness of Molong, its many attractions and this ultimately will lead to an increase in visitors, improved accommodation demand and economic benefits to the shire.

 

Cabonne Council’s logo will be included on all marketing and promotional material distributed prior to the event. Cabonne Council’s community support will also be promoted throughout the tournament and during the presentation ceremony.  As there will be many visitors from outside the region, this event presents an opportunity to place Cabonne Council banners and the Towns and Villages Guide at the bowling club to highlight the Shire’s attractions and assets.

 

Assessment

 

This application meets the event assistance funding program objectives of a core event. Its aim is to attract visitation to the area and support a number of Cabonne enterprises.

 

 

Application 2

 

Organisation:                               Cycling NSW

Event:                                             NSW Master Road Cycling Championship

Date:                                               22 September 2018

Requested amount:                    $5,000

Reason for funding:                             A contribution towards offsetting the marketing, promotion and event management commitments

 

Event Description:

 

Cycling NSW held the State Championship for Master Cyclists in Molong and Orange in April 2016 and 2017. This is the final year of the three year agreement. The cycling event attracts 460 entrants from all parts of NSW and a number of interstate riders. These cyclists bring with them family members, officials and support crews/members.

 

The break-up of the 460 entries consist of:

 

Road Race:                 424 entries

Criterium:                    292 entries

Time Trial:                             166 entries

 

The NSW Masters Road Cycling Championship is held over three days and provides an opportunity to showcase the many attractions and assets of the area. Our local businesses and accommodation outlets report a significant increase in visitors and spend in the area. Molong and surrounding area have enjoyed hosting the road race. Overall community feedback gathered is extremely positive and supportive of welcoming the NSW Championship, as it reinforces a positive message and example of a healthy lifestyle activity.

 

The State Championship is the largest of Cycling NSW’s annual championships and hosting the event attracts extensive media coverage, strong community spectator interest and attendance at the event.

 

Previously a notable increase in visitation and spend in the area has been reported. The event showcases many attractions to the visitors and competitors, provides positive country experiences which in turn helps to generate return visitation and increase awareness of our region.

 

Assessment

 

The submitted application from Cycling NSW meets the grant criteria of the Events Assistance Program as a flagship event that attracts significant visitors to Cabonne and increases the regional economy. 

 

In 2016 and 2017 Council allocated $5,000 to support Cycling NSW Master Cycling Road Race in Molong. This is the last year of this three year commitment.

Council has received a request asking that the Manildra Pool be named the Ron Miller Memorial Pool.  A copy of the request is attached.

 

Records indicate that the swimming pool at Manildra is already named the “Manildra War Memorial Swimming Pool”, located on Griffith Memorial Park and, as such, the renaming of the pool as request cannot be granted.

SUMMARY

 

The following report provides an assessment of the modification application submitted for relocation of a concessional allotment, forming part of an initial development to create 6 allotments from land previously described as Lot 2 DP 25968, Lot 21 DP 507487 and Lot 1 DP 593520 and now described as Lots 1 to 6 in DP 882990, Cargo Road, Canowindra.

 

The application has been referred to the Council for determination as the proposal is inconsistent with the Cabonne LEP (former or current).

 

It is recommended that the application be refused.

 

Applicant: Rob Atkinson

Owner:      Hassad-Australia Pty Ltd

Proposal:  Relocation of a concessional allotment

Location:   Lots 1, 2 and 4 DP 882990, 5162 and 5011 Cargo Road, Canowindra

Zone:         Rural 1(a) under the provisions of the former Cabonne LEP 1991

RU1 Primary Production under the provisions of Cabonne LEP 2012 

 

THE PROPOSAL

It is proposed to subdivide a 5.3ha allotment, containing an existing dwelling and farm buildings, from a 340.7ha rural allotment described as Lot 4 DP 882990 and known as 5011 Cargo Road, Canowindra. The subject and is located on the eastern side of Cargo Road, and is approximately 4km NE of Canowindra.

 

The applicant seeks to justify the proposed subdivision by consolidating an existing vacant 5.3ha concessional allotment described as Lot 1 DP882990 with an adjacent allotment described as Lot 2 DP 882990. These parcels of land are located on the western side of Cargo Road and are in the same ownership as Lot 4.

 

The applicant proposes the development as a modification to DA 1999/0008. The purpose of that application was to subdivide a rural holding to create three (3) concessional allotments and three (3) rural allotments. Development consent was issued on 2 September 1998.

 

The subdivision was registered on 28 January 1999 creating the following lots:

 

Lot

Area

1

5.3ha vacant land

2

100ha farm land

3

5ha vacant land

4

340.7ha containing a dwelling and farm buildings

5

5ha vacant land

6

145.37ha farm land

 

 

Lots 3 and 5 have been sold separately and a dwelling constructed on each. Lots 1, 2, 4 & 6 have been acquired by Hassad-Australia Pty Ltd, and operate as an agricultural holding.

 

The applicant proposes to subdivide Lot 4 to create two allotments as follows:

 

Lot

Area

Proposed lot 1

5.3ha containing a dwelling and farm buildings

Proposed Lot 2

335.4ha farm land

 

The applicant further proposes to consolidate Lots 1 & 2 DP 882990 into one rural allotment having an area of 105.3ha.

 

To effect the proposal the applicant is seeking to modify DA 1999/0008.

 

Planning background

The initial 6 lot subdivision (DA 1999/0008) related to the whole of an existing holding as defined by the Cabonne LEP 1991. Two allotments created by the subdivision are now in separate ownerships, fragmenting the existing holding. The modification relates to part only of the existing holding.

 

Concessional allotment subdivision provisions were removed from all NSW planning legislation in 2008 with the introduction of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Rural Lands) 2008. 

 

The Cabonne LEP 2012, being the planning provisions in force at the current time establish a minimum lot size for subdivision of rural land containing a dwelling as being 100ha. The applicant seeks to create an allotment of 5.3ha containing an existing dwelling and farm buildings.

 

Concessional allotments were not ‘transferable’ under the provisions of the former Cabonne LEP 1991.

 

The registration of the subdivision creating Lots 1 to 6 in DP 882990 completed the development process, and there is no further legal purpose of development consent 1999/0008.

 

Therefore, council cannot consider a modification application to vary allotments within the registered DP 882990, and there is no mechanism within the current planning provisions to permit the proposed 5.3ha subdivision of containing an existing dwelling.

 

Consolidation of Lots 1 & 2 may be achieved as exempt development under the relevant SEPP.

MATTERS FOR CONSIDERATION

In accordance with Section 4.55 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979, the proposed modification is of minimal environmental impact and is substantially the same development for which consent granted.

 

The application is considered to not be substantially the same development for which consent was granted, as it does not include all the land to which the initial application related.

 

It is also considered that the purpose of the development consent was achieved with the registration of the six (6) lot subdivision in 1998, and that the consent serves no further legal position.

 

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT s4.15(1)(a)(i)

 

Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991 (Amended)

The subject land was zoned 1(a) General Rural ‘A’ by the former Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 1991.  Subdivision of land was permissible within this zone, subject to Council’s development consent. Clause 14 of the CLEP 1991 related to concessional allotments, and was repealed in 2008 from legislation.

 

Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012

The subject land is zoned RU1 Primary Production by Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012. Subdivision of land was permissible within this zone, subject to Council’s development consent. Clause 4.2 requires a minimum lot size of 100ha for subdivision of an allotment containing a dwelling and situated within the RU1 zone.

 

 

REGIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL PLANS

 

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

 

 

STATE ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING POLICIES

 

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

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING INSTRUMENT THAT HAS BEEN PLACED ON EXHIBITION s4.15(1)(a)(ii)

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

 

 

PROVISIONS OF ANY DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN s4.15(1)(a)(iii)

 

Development Control Plan No 5 – General Rural Zones applies to this development.

 

The applicant has not provided an assessment of the proposal under the DCP provisions. The concept plan supplied indicated that the proposal does not comply with the 100m setback requirement to separate the dwelling from the adjoining agricultural land. This setback is required to address land use conflict and to protect Right to Farm principles.

 

 

PROVISIONS PRESCRIBED BY THE REGULATIONS s4.15(1)(a)(iv)

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

 

THE LIKELY IMPACTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT s4.15(1)(b)

 

Lot size and shape

The applicant seeks to create an irregular shaped allotment containing an existing dwelling and farm buildings. The allotment is to have an area of 5.3ha, and will adjoin Lot 3 DP 882990, being a concessional allotment containing a dwelling.

 

Access and traffic

Existing access arrangements service the dwelling allotment. Separate access would be required to provide safe and lawful access arrangements for the residual allotment.

 

 

THE SUITABILITY OF THE SITE s4.15(1)(c)

 

Physical Attributes and Hazards

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

 

 

DEVELOPMENT CONTRIBUTIONS

 

The council’s Bushfire Services Contributions Plan apply to this development.

 

ANY SUBMISSIONS MADE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ACT s4.15(1)(d)

 

As the Modification Application cannot be considered by council, the applicant was advised to withdraw the application. The advice was not accepted and the planning assessment recommendation is therefore for Refusal.

 

Based on the above the proposed development was not neighbourhood notified. 

 

 

PUBLIC INTEREST s4.15(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 modification is not considered to be permissible.  A section 4.15 assessment of the development indicates that the development is not permissible or acceptable in this instance.  It is recommended that council refuse the modification application DA 1999/0008/1 as the initial development consent has fulfilled its purpose with the subdivision completed by the registration of the plans.

Notification was made through public advertisement placed in the Molong Express.

 

As required by the Gateway determination, the planning proposal was forwarded to NSW Office Environment and Heritage and NSW Roads and Maritime Services. 

 

By the close of the notification phase no community submissions had been received by council. Responses were received from NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, NSW Roads and Maritime Services and NSW Rural Fire Services. The NSW RMS provided comment relating to road upgrade requirements, that would be taken into account should the LEP amendment proceed and a subsequent Development Application be lodged with council for determination.

 

The council may now consider to resolve to proceed with the amendment to the local planning provisions, in accordance with the submitted amended Planning Proposal, and the issued Gateway Determination, and to submit the planning proposal to the Minister for the making of the plan.

NSW OEH AND RFS had no requirements of the proposal. RMS provided comment on the requirements for road intersection upgrades in the  event that the proposed development was to proceed. RMS noted that their comments were advisory only at this stage, as further consultation would be required when a Development Application for the proposed activity is submitted, following the LEP amendment.

 

5.0    CONSISTENCY WITH s117 DIRECTIONS AND OTHER STRATEGIC PLANNING DOCUMENTS

 

An assessment of the proposals consistency, justifiable inconsistency or inconsistency with all relevant s117 directions, SEPPs and other strategic planning documents was provided with the Planning Proposal.

6.0    PARLIAMENTARY COUNSEL OPINION

The opinion of the Parliamentary Counsel to the making of the amending LEP was requested on 25 May 2018 and approval issued on 5 June 2018.

 

7.0 OTHER RELEVANT MATTERS

No representations has been received on the planning proposal from State or Federal members of Parliament, nor has council met with any government Minister in relation to the planning proposal.

 

8.0    MAPPING

The amendment to the LEP does not require an amendment to the standard mapping sheets of the Cabonne LEP 2012.

 

9.0    RECOMMENDATION

It is recommended that the plan be made to include Lot 30 DP 130510, Market and Creosus streets, Molong, in schedule 1 of the Cabonne Local Environmental Plan 2012, to permit a truck wash facility as an additional permitted use.

RATING SUMMARY

2018/2019

 

 

OVERVIEW

                                                     

The following pages contain details of Council's Rates and Charges.

 

1) The Rating Structure to Apply For 2018/2019

 

Council’s General Rate Categories and Sub-Categories are as follows:

 

¨  Farmland

¨  Residential

¨  Residential - Canowindra Town

¨  Mining

¨  Business

¨  Business - Molong Town

¨  Business - Canowindra Town

 

2) Rating Categories

 

Council wishes to take this opportunity to advise ratepayers that the categorisation of land for rating purposes was not a decision made by Council, but rather is a legal requirement on Council contained in the Local Government Act 1993.

In accordance with the Act Council MUST categorise land into one of four categories, those being farmland, residential, business or mining (see definitions following).

 

As well as this, the definition for each of the categories is contained in the Local Government Act and Council MUST use that definition to determine the category.

 

Things that may seem “logical” as far as the categories are concerned (e.g. as rural for Advance Energy accounts should be classed as rural or farmland for rating purposes) are not necessarily relevant to classification for rating purposes under the Act - only the definition contained in the Act must be used.

 

3) Definitions of Rating Categories From The Act

 

Farmland

 

515.

 

(1)   Land is to be categorised as Farmland if it is a parcel of rateable land valued as one assessment and its dominant use is for farming (that is, the business or industry of grazing, animal feedlots, dairying, pig-farming, poultry farming, viticulture, orcharding, bee-keeping, horticulture, vegetable growing, the growing of crops of any kind, forestry or aquaculture (within the meaning of the Fisheries Management Act 1994) or any combination of those businesses or industries) which:

 

a)   has a significant and substantial commercial purpose or character; and

 

b)   is engaged in for the purpose of profit on a continuous or repetitive basis (whether or not a profit is actually made).

 

(2)   Land is not to be categorised as farmland if it is rural residential land.

 

(3)   The regulations may prescribe circumstances in which land is or is not to be categorized as farmland.

 

Residential

 

516.

 

(1)   Land is to be categorized as Residential if it is a parcel of rateable land valued as one assessment and:

 

a)   its dominant use is for residential accommodation, (otherwise than as a hotel, motel, guest-house, backpacker hostel or nursing home or any other form of residential accommodation - (not being a boarding house or a lodging house) prescribed by the regulations); or

 

b)   in the case of vacant land, it is zoned or otherwise designated for use under an environmental planning instrument (with or without development consent) for residential purposes; or

 

c)   it is rural residential land.

 

(2)   The regulations may prescribe circumstances in which land is or is not to be categorised as residential.


 

Mining

 

517.

 

(1)   Land is to be categorised as Mining if it is a parcel of rateable land valued as one assessment and its dominant use if for a coal mine or metalliferous mine.

 

(2)   The regulations may prescribe circumstances in which land is or is not to be categorised as mining.

 

Business

 

518.

 

(1)   Land is to be categorised as Business if it cannot be categorised as farmland, residential or mining.

 

Vacant Land

 

The Act indicates that Council should use the following process to categorise vacant land:

 

(i)         “In accordance with the zoning of the land; or

 

(ii)        In accordance with the predominant categorisation of the surrounding land.

 

Council has generally categorised vacant land as residential unless it meets the definition of farmland as contained in the Act.

In recent times, there has been graffiti on the footpaths of local businesses slandering owners. There has been incidences where shops have been broken into with cash and property stolen. Also in 2014 there was is excess of $100,000 damage done to Canowindra High School.

 

Both Chanse and Ella believe the installation of CCTV would act as a deterrent and that the occurrence of such incidents would be greatly reduced and that the small businesses, as well as the public, would feel safer.

 

Molong Central School

 

Students – Amy Wilson and Matt Beuzeville

 

Issues Amy and Matt raised on behalf of the Molong youth were:

 

·    Library -

o A bigger area for students to study

o Longer opening hours

o WIFI

·    Social events such as PCYC discos and music events

·    Recycling -

o More encouragement and education

o Green lid bins for organic matter

·    Tennis Courts are overrun with weeds

 

Yeoval Central School

 

Students – Bridget Smith and Sydney Tremain

 

Issues Bridget and Sydney raised on behalf of the Yeoval youth, which they feel are important for the good of Yeoval, whilst also reflecting the whole Shire, are:

 

·    Footpaths, especially from the camping ground to the main street. The students feel this would not only be more accessible for pedestrians and the elderly, but would also make the town safer.

·    Football oval -

o Audit of existing lighting and replaced if needed

o The ground is too hard, needs to be cored, top dressed and seeded

·    Tennis Courts -

o Needs to be resurfaced

o Converting unto an all-weather, multi-purposed sports surface, similar to Hunter Caldwell at Molong

o Nets needs replacing

o Fence is in need of repair or replacing

·    Welcome signs into Yeoval need upgrading or replacing

 

The students all raised important issues. The matters raised by the students have been referred to the appropriate staff members for investigation and will be reported back to Council recommending possible actions.

Finance Manager's REPORT

 

Council’s investments as at 31st May 2018 stand at a total of $43,952,294.

 

Council’s average interest rate for the month was 2.48%. The effect of the low cash rate is having a negative impact on term deposit rates offered by financial institutions. The Reserve Bank’s official cash rate remained steady at 1.50% during the month of May.   However, Council’s average rate is higher than Council’s benchmark rate of the 30 Day Bank Bill Swap Rate of 1.86%. 

 

Council’s investments are held with multiple Australian financial Institutions with varying credit ratings according to Council’s Investment Policy. The annexure to this report shows a break up of each individual institution that Council invests with and its “Standard and Poor’s” Credit Rating.

 

The Schedule of Investments for May 2018 is attached for Council’s information.

File Number

\OFFICIAL RECORDS LIBRARY\ROADS and BRIDGES\MAINTENANCE - RURAL ROADS\ARCHER ROAD - 928816

 

Director of Engineering & Technical Services' REPORT

Council recently received a petition regarding the condition of Archer Road.

Archer Road is located at Mullion Creek, and is 3.5km in length from the intersection at Burrendong Way to the Mullion State Forest boundary, with a road width average of 6.2m, and which services several properties.

Council recently resolved to deny access to logging trucks on Archer Road, in order to minimise the impact on the road way and more importantly provide a safer environment for the road user.

In recent years council has sealed 1.8km of the road at a cost of $103,000 and so far this financial year a total of $21,246 has been spent on pavement maintenance, tree maintenance and signage.

Since council has received the petition, the unsealed section of the road has been graded and is in good condition.  The remaining unsealed section of Archer Road is approximately 1.5km in length, and the estimated cost to bitumen seal this section of road would be $84,000.

Currently this is unfunded, however, the project would be a priority in the next financial year to be included in potential project savings as per previous years.

Director of Environmental Services' REPORT

 

Council at its meeting of 22 May 2018 requested information on the benefits of solar farms.  Attached for council’s information are copies of NSW Department of Industry Resources and Energy Fact Sheet Solar farms in NSW and a copy of the NSW government’s Draft Large Scale Solar Energy Guideline for State Significant Development, November 2017.

 

A media release dated 8 February 2018 from the Minister for Planning and Housing, Anthony Roberts,  stated that the number of solar farms approved in NSW doubled in 2017, with a future capacity to support more than 1,800 jobs and power half a million homes with sustainable energy. The State government approved 10 solar farm projects in 2017, of which six of the proposals were destined for construction in the Central West. The NSW government had approved 22 solar projects in total, ensuring energy security for the State.

 

The solar farm at Manildra was approved by the State government as a major project on 3 March 2011. Grant funding of $9m was subsequently accessed and construction commenced in 2017. The project has recently been completed and the solar farm commissioned. Media reports indicate that the developer, First Solar, had negotiated a contract with EnergyAustralia to buy the output from the solar farm as part of a 13 year Power Purchase Agreement.

Description generated with very high confidence

Transport Infrastructure – The Centroc Board continues advocating aggressively regarding the need for a safe swift link between Central NSW and Western Sydney.

All members are encouraged to send through a submission in line with existing policy and to request taking into consideration the concerns of Western Sydney.

A group of people sitting at a table

Description generated with very high confidenceThe Board is acutely aware of the challenges of the communities of Western Sydney and is respectful of their needs. Representing the communities of Central NSW the Board does not have a view on the specifics of the corridor alignment only that a corridor needs to be secured for a future safe swift link between Sydney and Central NSW.

It is Board policy to support a corridor M7 to Kurrajong. Recognising the concerns being expressed in Western Sydney on the departure from the 1951 alignment, this region sees the 1951 corridor as satisfactory with the proviso that it extends through to Kurrajong.

A future meeting with the Regional Strategic Alliance (RSA) Hawkesbury Council, Blue Mountains City Council and Penrith City Council will be progressed after they have met in June.

The Hon Melinda Pavey, Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight addressed the Board accompanying her was Ken Gillespie, Roy Wakelin-King, Executive Director, Regional & Freight, RMS and John Hardwick, Executive Director, Sydney Roads and Maritime Services who is responsible for the Bells line of Road.
