Executive Summary

 

At the Council meeting of 1 June 2009, Council considered the report of Open Space and Urban Services to undertake temporary modifications to the Lloyd Rees Bandstand to coincide with the opening of the Market Square development.  The previous report and attachment are shown as AT 1 and AT 2. At this meeting it was resolved:-

 

“That Council defer the matter and invite the Heritage Consultants to address Council at an inspection to take place on Saturday 4 July 2009”.

 

Heritage Consultants, Garry Stanley and Jane Rothschild, have been invited to attend the Inspection Committee and address Councillors on the heritage values of the Lloyd Rees Bandstand.  Public Art Strategy consultant, Richard Goodwin, will also be in attendance. Mr Goodwin was employed by Harry Howard, when Mr Howard designed the Lloyd Rees Bandstand.

 

Council will resolve on whether to proceed with the temporary modifications as proposed by Open Space and Urban Services at the meeting of 1 June 2009.

 

 

Background

 

At the Council meeting of 1 June 2009, Open Space and Urban Services recommended that the steps on the western side of the Lloyd Rees Bandstand and the landscape/storage area on the southern side of the Bandstand be removed as a temporary measure, to allow for improved pedestrian connectivity between the Market Square development and the Rosenthal Avenue Car Park, until such time it is determined where the Bandstand would be located as part of the Lane Cove Village Public Domain Master Plan.

 

On considering this matter, Councillors raised the issue of the heritage value of the components of the Bandstand that are proposed to be modified. It is envisaged that the site meeting with the heritage consultants will resolve this issue.

 

 

Discussion

 

It is proposed that Councillors meet at the Lloyd Rees Bandstand at 8.30am to discuss the temporary alterations to the western steps and southern storage area/landscape box of the bandstand.

 

We will then proceed to the corner of Austin Street/Longueville Road to look at a request for a 'Directory Sign' from a Mr Rouse for the shops on the southern side of Austin Street, near Longueville Road.

 

From there, we will proceed to Blackman Park to discuss the Plan of Management.

 

At the conclusion of these items, the Councillors are then invited to attend a celebratory opening of the York's Corner Shopping Centre Upgrade. We would aim for an 11.30am start for this.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-

 

1.         Receive and note the report; and

 

2.         Determine the issue of the heritage value of the components of the Bandstand that             are proposed to be modified and whether to proceed with the modifications prior to             the opening of the Market Square development.
