Ban on all political campaigning and advertising at Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale

 

 

Subject:          Ban on all political campaigning and advertising at Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale    

Record No:    SU4985 - 39285/17

Division:         Lane Cove Council

Author(s):      Councillor Daniel Strassberg 

 

 

Background

 

Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale is to be held on Saturday September 2nd 2017 in Lane Cove Plaza. This is the last weekend before the council elections to be held on September 9th and will be the last community event to be celebrated under this council term. The Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale was introduced by this Council to be a community event of fun, entertainment and family enjoyment.  It’s a magical street fair that brings the community of Lane Cove together as well as our family and friends from the surrounding neighbourhoods. 

 

This event needs to be enjoyed and not become an opportunity for political campaigning that would steal from the community its spirit and original intent.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.         The General Manager write to all nominating Lane Cove candidates and the General Manager’s of Willoughby, North Sydney and Hunters Hill advising them that the Lane Cove Coffee Carnevale is a non political event and that all campaigning is strictly prohibited; and

 

2.         It be noted campaigning includes the distribution on the day of any materials and any forms of physical advertising including but not limited to; billboards, banners, t-shirts, balloons etc.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Rosenthal Car Park Development - Parking Management in the Village during the Construction Period

 

 

Subject:          Rosenthal Car Park Development - Parking Management in the Village during the Construction Period    

Record No:    SU6450 - 36314/17

Division:         Open Space and Urban Services Division

Author(s):      Abdullah Uddin; Geoff Douglas; Craig Wrightson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

This report outlines the public car park management during the construction period of Rosenthal Project which includes a 500 space car park, retail and public park.

 

Background

 

The demolition, excavation and construction of the car park will take approximately two and a half years to complete. During this time, the loss of the current 170 car parking spaces within the current at grade car park will impact on the village, particularly as the car park is well utilised.

 

The proposals in this report were tested against the views of the Rosenthal Community Liaison Group (CLG) inaugural meeting held on Tuesday 11 July, whose views are indicated below.

 

The following table outlines the car park capacity within the village over time. It is noted that with the opening of the Little Street Car Park in 2016, the loss of parking during the construction process, will mean that the actual number of spaces will return to 2014 levels.

 

 

To minimise the parking impact to the visitors and employees of the Village, the following proposals have been investigated.

 

1.         Construction Staging

 

The on-grade car park currently accommodates total 170 spaces (including six Disability and Seniors Parking spaces each). Currently parking is restricted between 1-3 hours during the daytime.

 

To minimise the parking impact in the Village, the excavation and demolition work will be undertaken in two phases. The southern half will be excavated first with appropriate fence/ barricades and the northern half of the car park (approximately 65 spaces) will remain operational for approximately four months from 12 September to 31 December 2017 as shown in Figure 1. After the initial construction phase is complete, parking will be made available on the site by allowing vehicles to park onto of the structure while the basement levels are fitted out.

 

Figure 1: Staged Construction of Rosenthal Car Park

 

 

 

To ensure efficient turnover of the car park during these four months, two hour parking is recommended in the entire northern section of the car park. Parking restrictions will be in place between 8am-6pm, seven days per week, with one entry to the car park permitted per day per vehicle. 

 

The CLG supported reduced parking times to achieve higher turnover, noting that 3 hour parking is available at Market Square, Little Lane and other locations.  One CLG member advocated reduction to 1 hour parking at Rosenthal car park to help maintain ‘convenience parking’ for those visiting the village for 1 -2 hours.  The CLG suggested that promotion of the Little St Public Car Park will be important. Council is proposing to prepare a parking brochure, outlining options within the Village which will be available for shop keepers to give out and will be distributed to users of the Rosenthal Car Park.

 

An effective management solution of the available parking within Rosenthal Car Park will be required to ensure turnover of spaces. Council has explored the following options:

Option 1: Car Park Attendant

 

In this option, a car park attendant at the entry to the car park will allow entry after recording vehicle and arrival details. Pros – Personal service, prevents returning vehicles, Cons – Expensive and there is a possibility of on-street queuing at the entrance to the car park.

 

Option 2: Boom gate

 

In this option boom gates at the entry and exit at the car park will control the car park. A parking ticket will be issued at the entry, to exit the same ticket will be inserted. Pros – Less expensive than fulltime staff, Cons – Expensive and there is a possibility of on-street queuing at the entrance to the car park. Also as no fee is currently payable, over stays would raise revenue but not meet the objective of turnover.

 

Option 3: Ticket Display

 

In this option, Council would install a parking meter at a suitable location which will provide a free ticket for a maximum of two hours, to be displayed on the dashboard of the vehicle. The parking meter can be programmed to require the vehicle registration number to be entered to issue the free ticket. Only one free ticket will be issued per day. A Parking Officer can cross check the day/ time/ registration number while patrolling the car park and infringement ticket can be issued to any mismatch of the information.

 

Pros - Council has a spare parking meter which can be reprogrammed and installed at a suitable location at minimal cost. Reduces likelihood of queuing. Cons – educating public on use of the meter.

 

Based on the options discussed above, Option 3 is recommended for approval as it is the most cost effective and simplest method of ensuring highest turnover of the 65 available car parking spaces in Rosenthal car park.  

 

Disability Parking Spaces

 

As stated above there are six (6) Disability Parking Spaces within the car park.

 

The current 6 spaces represent 3.5% of the existing 170 spaces in the car park. To maintain the same proportion in the reduced size car park, it is recommended to retain two (2) Disability Parking Spaces with a 2 hour time restriction to ensure effective turnover. 

 

Seniors Parking Spaces

 

As stated above there are six (6) Seniors Parking Spaces within the car park.

 

The current 6 spaces represent 3.5% of the existing 170 spaces in the car park. To maintain the same proportion in the reduced size car park, it is recommended to retain two (2) Seniors Parking Spaces with a 2 hour time restriction to ensure effective turnover.

The CLG felt that any change to location or reduction in numbers of Disabled and Senior’s parking should be communicated through appropriate channels e.g. SCS (previously LCNSCS), this is supported.

 

2.         Shared Zone in Birdwood & Rosenthal Lanes

 

There is an existing Shared Zone for half the length of Birdwood Lane and the full length of Rosenthal Lane. Council intends to promote pedestrian movements in both the laneway and the park once Rosenthal car park is built. The vision for the project is to activate the laneway to support the specialty retail zones at the park level. To achieve this, the Shared Zone is proposed to be extended the full length of the Lanes. This will also assist with pedestrian movements during construction with the removal of the footpath along the Rosenthal frontage of the site.   The CLG supported this initiative.

 

3.         Loading Zones in Birdwood & Rosenthal Lanes

 

There are two existing Loading Zones on the western side of Birdwood Lane and another informal Loading Zone at the southern end of Birdwood Lane (Refer to Figure 2). These loading zones will be removed in early next year, when the full site is excavated.

 

To facilitate deliveries to the affected businesses, Council is currently negotiating with the land owner to accommodate a 15m long Loading Zone at the rear of the Commonwealth Bank (Fig 2).

 

The CLG supported this initiative.

 

4.         5 Minute Parking in Longueville Road

 

To facilitate individual retailer and/or commercial operators need to drop off and pick up small items from close to their premises at the start/end of the day (as distinct from formal loading zones for deliveries) it was proposed that one 5 minute parking space be made available in Longueville Road, as follows:  7:00am to 9:00am, and 5:00 to 7:00pm Monday to Sunday.  The CLG supported this initiative.

 

Figure 2: Loading Zones in the Village

 

 

4.         Local Employee Parking

 

Council has explored a number of suitable sites for full time local employee parking within the Village. Sera Street has been identified as a suitable location for all day employee parking due to its location and low parking occupancy (Refer to Figure 3 and 4). There are total 27 on-street car parking spaces, nine (9) on the northern side and 18 on the southern side. Out of 27 spaces, three (3) spaces in front of the GoodStart Early Learning Centre are restricted to ‘15Min; 7-9.30am; 2.30-5pm; Mon-Fri’ and the remaining spaces are restricted to 3P, 8am-6pm during the day time and extended hours on Thursday evenings. Parking occupancy surveys were undertaken on 20 & 21 June 2017 and the data is shown in Figure 4.

 

The low parking occupancy provides an opportunity to allocate these on-street spaces to local business employees, with the three (3) 15 Min parking spaces outside the child care centre being retained. The remaining 24 on-street parking spaces can be distributed to local business employees between Monday to Friday by doing raffle on a quarterly basis.  The CLG supported this initiative.

Figure 4: Sera Street Parking Occupancy

 

4.         Seven Day Parking Restriction in the Village

 

Many of the existing parking restrictions in the village are only six days, with Sundays unregulated. This stems from the past where Sunday trading was minimal. It is proposed to standardise the restrictions to apply 7 days a week, across all parking restrictions in the village.

 

Conclusion

 

This report addresses the parking management options within the Lane Cove Village during the initial phase of the construction period of Rosenthal car park. For efficient parking management within the Village, the northern 65 car parking spaces within the Rosenthal Car Park should be restricted to two hours per day with effective parking management utilising a display of an issued ticket. Two Disability and Seniors parking spaces are recommended to be retained in the temporary car park. Other recommended parking measures include all day parking for local business employees in Sera Street. The proposed parking restriction proposals will be monitored and necessary adjustments made if required.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.   The northern half of the Rosenthal car park be restricted to ‘2P; 8am-6pm; 7 days per week, with vehicles permitted to park once per day;

 

2.   A parking meter be installed at the Rosenthal Car Park to manage the two hour free parking per day;

 

3.   Two (2) Disability Parking Spaces be retained in the car park and be restricted to two (2) hours;

 

4.   Two (2) Seniors Parking spaces be retained in the car park and be restricted to two (2) hours;

 

5.   The existing Shared Zone in Birdwood Lane be extended full length;

 

6.   Council explore a Loading Zone at the rear of Commonwealth bank;

 

7.   One (1) 5 Min Parking Zone be provided in Longueville Road 7am-9am; 5pm-7pm Mon-Sun;

 

8.   Twenty four existing three (3) hour on-street car spaces in Sera Street be allocated to all day parking for use by local businesses (Mon-Fri) utilising a permit system, with the permits allocated by a free raffle on a quarterly basis;

 

9.   Council standardise parking restrictions in the Village to apply 7 days a week;

 

10. Council undertake a suitable public information campaign to inform the community of the changes; and

 

11. All proposed alteration of regulatory signage and Shared Zone extension proposal be referred to Local Traffic Committee for consideration.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Implementation of Legislation To Manage Boat Trailer Parking

 

 

Subject:          Implementation of Legislation To Manage Boat Trailer Parking    

Record No:    SU4145 - 37770/17

Division:         Environmental Services Division

Author(s):      David Wilson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Further to Council’s Resolution at the Ordinary Meeting of the 20 March 2017,  the  following report seeks Council’s endorsement to implement provisions of the Impounding Act 1993 that was introduced by the Impounding Amendment (Unattended Boat Trailers) Act 2015 (The Act). The Act now provides for councils to take impounding action against owners of boat trailers parked continuously on street for more than 28 days.

 

Following community consultation, 116 submissions were received, with 66% of respondents being in favour of adopting the amendments to the Act.

 

Residents highlighted their concerns about boat trailers being parked in the same locations for years, trailers being parked dangerously and obstructing driveways , or boat trailers owned by others being parked outside another person’s home, when the person who owns the boat, lives nearby.

 

Those not in favour of the proposal, commented that it was unfair to target boat trailers when other trailers would not be subject to the Act. Others requested that a permit system be established for local boat owners to exempt them from the Act or for an area to be set aside for the parking of boats in the Lane Cove LGA.

 

An audit of the boats in the area revealed that 90 boats were parked on street, 38 of which are registered to owners from outside of the LGA.  Although given the time of year and the recent publicity surrounding the community consultation a number of boat trailers have been moved.

 

As North Sydney, Willoughby and Ku-ring- gai council’s have all adopted the Act; it is proposed that Lane Cove adopts a consistent position, to ensure that Council has the regulatory powers to issue directions to move or relocate a boat trailer that is parked in an inappropriate location.

 

The area proposed to be made a “Declared Area” by order issued pursuant to the statutory provisions being the entire Lane Cove Local Government Area.

 

Background

 

Recent amendments to the Impounding Act 1993 introduce new measures to regulate the parking of boat trailers on public roads. Increasingly, boat owners have been using on-street parking as a long term parking option for their boats. In some cases, this has led to concerns about loss of local streetscape amenity and increased traffic safety risks. Currently in New South Wales, there are 204,000 boat trailers registered with Roads and Maritime Services. This number is forecast to increase by around 3% over the next decade.

 

The new legislation as detailed in section 15A of the Act, requires that a boat trailer that is parked in a “declared area” is to be moved at least every 28 days. To be regarded as having been “moved” the trailer must be:

 

“Moved along the same road and pass an intersection with another road. An intersection with a road related area is to be disregarded for the purpose of this subsection unless it is related to a different road.”

 

Should an impounding officer observe a trailer not having been moved within the previous 28 days, they may give 15 days’ notice to the owner to move the trailer so as to avoid impounding. If Council does not receive any correspondence from the owner within 15 days of the notice, Council may instruct its service provider to remove the trailer. The trailer will be then held for a further 28 days at Council’s impounding yard and thereafter may be sold through an auction process if the trailer is not claimed.

 

The Impounding Amendment (Unattended Boat Trailer) Act 2015 took effect in three pilot local government areas from 1 July 2016. From 1 October 2016, the Office of Local Government has advised that additional councils who have appropriately consulted their communities may commence implementation of the measures.

 

Those who currently park their boats on-street for extended periods in the Lane Cove LGA would be affected by this legislation and would be required to either change their boat storage to an off-street location or ensure they regularly move their boat and trailer. The legislation would affect local residents as well as those residing in other local government areas.

 

 Community Consultation

 

Community consultation included public notices on community notice boards, in the Library as well as in the North Shore Times, Council’s website and e-news, together with direct mail to boating associations and sailing clubs and the Greenwich Community Association, was undertaken over a 6 week period to ensure that information regarding this matter was widely communicated.

  

At the conclusion of the 42 day consultation period, 116 responses were received. 66% of respondents supported Council’s intention to implement the Act, whilst 34 % objected to the proposal.

 

Residents in favour of the proposal highlighted their concerns about boat trailers being parked in the same locations for a number of years without being moved and becoming an eyesore, trailers being parked dangerously and obstructing driveways, or boat trailers owned by others being parked outside another person’s home.

 

Those not in favour of the proposal, commented that it was unfair to target boat trailers when other trailers would not be subject to the Act. Others requested that a permit system be established for local boat owners to exempt them from the Act or for an area to be set aside for the parking of boats in the Lane Cove LGA.

 

Discussion

 

A summary of the Boat Trailer Audit (AT-1 and AT-2) of the LGA has been undertaken that shows 90 boat trailers were observed:

 

Table 1: Summary of Boat Trailer Audit Results

Total Number  of Boat Trailers Observed in Lane Cove LGA

90

Registered to a Lane Cove LGA  address

52

Registered to an address in another LGA

27

Abandoned /cancelled  registrations – action pending

11

 

Of  the 27 boat trailers that were identified as being from outside of the LGA , these were from a variety of locations including Queensland, Kenthurst, Hornsby and Jilliby (Central Coast) as well as the adjoining surrounding suburbs of Cremorne, Waverton and North Sydney, where the Act was adopted in 2016.

Observations by Rangers who undertook the audit, reported that a number of boat trailers that are generally parked in the area, weren’t present during the audit. This could be a result of the public notices and information that has been published in recent weeks about the proposal, and boat owners have relocated their boats or due to the holiday period as boats maybe being used.

 

It is estimated that at any one time there are approximately 300 boat trailers that are parked in the Lane Cove LGA at any one time by residents and non residents, and this can result in conflicts occurring, particularly in locations where access to parking is limited.

 

Each year, Council receives approximately 360 complaints in relation to abandoned/nuisance vehicles. These complaints can include concerns about damaged or stolen cars, trailers and boat trailers being parked outside a person’s home or business, with the majority being related to  traffic safety concerns i.e where the boat is parked in proximity of a driveway or in a narrow street or where parking is limited. Where Council issues an Impounding Notice, less than 10% of these matters require further intervention, as the owners make arrangements to have the vehicle/trailer removed.

 

More often than not, Council is currently unable to take any formal action, where a registered boat trailer is legally parked and has been there for a lengthy period, as the trailer is registered and lawfully allowed to remain in its parked location.

 

The Act allows, where appropriate, Council to instigate action to have a boat trailer owner contacted, and to have the trailer moved to a more appropriate location.

 

Whilst the number of boat trailers in Lane Cove at this time is relatively small by comparison with other LGA’s, as a result of the surrounding Councils having adopted the Act, the number of boat trailers that may be parked in the LGA may increase significantly over time as boat owners become aware of current provisions.

 

Whilst Council received submissions from residents who are boat owners, who had concerns about the adoption of the Act, Council’s Rangers apply a courteous and practical approach to enforcement of such matters and would work to ensure that a balance is achieved between application of the Act and the context of where a boat trailer is parked.

 

Financial Impact

 

There are no direct financial implications for Council’s budget as monitoring and implementation of the Act would be integrated into current work programmes.

 

Conclusion

 

The proposed changes to the Impounding Act 1993 would give Council, more effective legislative power to respond to community complaints regarding boat trailer parking. Under the existing legislation, Council is unable to require boat owners to move a registered boat trailer where they have been parked for extended periods of time.

 

With 66% of the community respondents supportive of Council’s initiative to adopt the new legislation, and adjoining local government areas also implementing similar restrictions in regard to on-street parking of boat trailers, it is recommended that Council proceed to implement of the Impounding Amendment (Unattended Boat Trailer) Act 2015.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-

 

1.         Endorse the implementation of provisions of the Impounding Act 1993 introduced by the Impounding amendment (Unattended Boat Trailers) Act 2015, which allows Councils to take impounding action against owners of boat trailers parked continuously on a street for more than 28 days;

 

2.         Declare the Lane Cove Local Government Area, from 1 September 2017 to be for the purpose of Section 15A (1) of the Impounding Act 1993; and

 

3.         Give notice as required in the NSW Government Gazette and undertake a public information campaign, including notifying those who make a submission of Council’s decision.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP)

 

 

Subject:          Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP)    

Record No:    SU6606 - 38805/17

Division:         Human Services Division

Author(s):      Carol Sinclair 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014 (DIA) legislates that Local Government is to undertake disability inclusion action planning and develop and implement a plan of action to ensure the plans come into effect.  The plan is called the Disability Inclusion Action Plan or DIAP.  Lane Cove, Ryde and Hunters Hill Councils have worked regionally to consult with people with disability and the community to develop a regional consultation paper and localised Action Plans.  Elton Consulting were engaged to help with the consultation and to analyse the data and prepare the reports. The draft is now recommended for public exhibition.

 

Discussion

 

Prior to the development of the NSW Disability Inclusion Act 2014 the Government consulted with people with disability to ask them what should be the main areas of focus for the action plans to make communities inclusive for people with disability.  Four focus areas were identified: attitudes and behaviours, liveable communities, meaningful employment and better systems and processes.  These are the areas that Councils must include in their DIAPs.

 

Council developed promotional material and invited the community to contribute to the development of the DIAP and to help Council develop a whole of Council approach to effectively plan for and deliver on the diverse needs of people with disability in our community.

 

Members of the community were asked to provide their input in a number of ways including attending community forums, completing a survey, having one on one discussions or by using a ‘Meeting in a Box Toolkit’ with groups/families so they can run their own meetings.

 

Altogether 749 people across the region contributed to the development of the DIAP.  The information informed the Consultation Report and the development of the three individual Action Plan documents.  The table below lists the different forms of consultation undertaken and the number of people who participated in each one.

The DIAP is consistent with other Council plans and includes timeframes, responsibilities and outcomes. It also includes a Lane Cove Social Justice Charter to further support the significance of the DIAP and reaffirm Council’s commitment to social justice in it’s work.

 

Strategies have been identified for each focus area and actions to achieve these strategies have been developed.  The strategies for each focus are outlined in the table below.

 

Focus Area

 

Strategies

Developing positive community attitudes and behaviours

·         Celebrate and value people with disability in the community

·         Foster understanding and connections within the community

·         Facilitate programs that improve social inclusion

·         Make Council events, facilities and activities welcoming and inclusive

·         Increase knowledge and understanding about disability in Council

 

Creating liveable communities 

 

·         Make it safe and easy to get around

·         Ensure Council’s open spaces and leisure and sporting facilities are accessible

·         Improve accessibility of Council’s buildings and infrastructure assets

·         Facilitate town centres and commercial areas to be inclusive

·         Provide more adaptive and affordable housing

 

Supporting access to meaningful employment     

 

·         Ensure Council is a leader in equal employment

·         Support people with disability in finding local employment

·         Foster skills, training and social contribution of people with disability

 

Improving access to services through better systems and processes     

 

·         Improve access and diversity of information services

·         Involve people with disability in decision making

·         Upgrade access to Council services

·         Be inclusive in how Council operates and services the community

 

           

On 30 June 2017 the draft DIAP and Consultation Report was sent to Local Government NSW and the Disability Council NSW as required by the Act. Due to the complexities of working over three council areas, Council did not make the 1 July deadline to adopt the final DIAP.

As a part of the legislation Council must comply with public monitoring and reporting requirements through Local Government Annual Reports, dissemination of reports to the Minister for Disability Services and to the Disability Council NSW and report on the progressive implementation of the plan.  Annual reports by Council will be part of a report tabled by the Minister on the implementation of disability inclusion action planning to Parliament.

 

As per the legislation a new DIAP is required to be reviewed every 4 years and aligned to the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework.   

 

The Draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan for Lane Cove Council and the Consultation Outcome Report are attached.

 

Following the adoption by Council for public consultation and the six week consultation period a final version of the DIAP will be submitted to Council in October 2017 for adoption. The adopted plan will be submitted to the Disability Council NSW and work will begin on implementing the actions.

 

Conclusion

 

The implementation of the DIAP will occur over the next four years.  Over this time it is envisaged that Lane Cove will become a more inclusive community and that people with disability will feel more welcome and included.  Future DIAPs will continue this process of inclusion.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.   Council note the draft DIAP was sent to LGNSW and the Disability Council, as required by the Act;

 

2.   Council approve the Draft Disability Inclusion Action Plan and the Draft Consultation Outcome Report for the purpose of Public Consultation; and

 

3.   Council receive a further report following the consultation.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Love Where You Live Event Sponsorship Request

 

 

Subject:          Love Where You Live Event Sponsorship Request    

Record No:    SU4416 - 37619/17

Division:         Human Services Division

Author(s):      Corinne Dickinson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

A request has been received through Council’s Love Where You Live Event Sponsorship program to provide support to the Lane Cove Fun Run which is to be held in September 2017.

 

Currently the trial of the sponsorship program allows for applications to be received at any time and reviewed at the next available Council meeting.

 

Background

The Love Where You Live Sponsorship program aims to support activities that involve connecting neighbours, enjoying outdoor events, celebrating local history, encouraging respect of public spaces and supporting our community on the basis that they will contribute to Lane Cove being a great place to live, work and play.

 

This is the first application received since Council formally endorsed the funding in April 2017.

 

Discussion

 

The inaugural Lane Cove Fun Run was held in 2016. Organised and implemented by the Lane Cove Public School Parents and Citizens (P&C) Association, the event received significant support from the local and wider community with over 1,500 participants taking part in one of two local routes in the Longueville area.

 

An application has been received from the Lane Cove Public School P&C Association for support in 2017. The application acknowledges existing in-kind support from Council through the provision of Kingsford Smith Oval, preparation of the Traffic Control Plan and waste management.

 

The P&C have asked for funding from Council to cover the cost of the Variable Message Signs (VMS) which notify residents and motorists of changed traffic conditions in the lead up to the event. The cost is anticipated to be $3,500 (ex GST).

 

A copy of the application form has been circulated to Councillors separately.

 

Conclusion

 

The application meets the intent of the Love Where You Live Event Sponsorship program. The event promotes the enjoyment of the outdoors, positive use of open space and reflects Council’s commitment to community health and wellbeing.


 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.   Council approve the application for funding from Lane Cove Public School P&C Association for the value of $3,500 ex GST; and

 

2.   The event sponsorship be advertised as per requirements under the Local Government Act.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Lane Cove Solar Mapping Project

 

 

Subject:          Lane Cove Solar Mapping Project    

Record No:    SU6743 - 35858/17

Division:         Environmental Services Division

Author(s):      Louise DeMattia 

 

 

Executive Summary

Council has been invited to partner with the Australian Photo Voltaic Institute (APVI)  to participate in the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program - Solar Mapping Project.

The Australian Photo Voltaic Institute (APVI) in partnership with the University of NSW and Solar Analytics has developed the Smart Cities and Suburbs Program. Membership in the Program provides Council and the community with online data on solar mapping.

Participation would provide Council with access to energy generation data for Council buildings. In addition the community be able to use the data to undertake feasibility studies in relation to investing in solar panels.

The partnership with APVI is an excellent opportunity for Council and the community to better understand solar panel placement opportunities and it is recommended Council approve the funding for the Solar Mapping Project of $5,000, as well as ongoing yearly membership costs of $3,000 p.a for the next 3 years.

 

Background

 

The Australian Photo Voltaic Institute (APVI) is responsible for the Australian Solar Mapping which hosts a user-friendly web platform that tracks the uptake of solar PV around Australia on households and buildings. The APVI are developing a SunSPoT (Solar Potential Tool) platform with Council’s around Australia to provide a free-to-use tool that allows both Councils and the local community to assess how they would benefit from solar on their roofs and further benefits for Council in assessing the solar assets. Currently, ten (10) Council’s have been mapped, including Willoughby City Council and Randwick City Council.

 

Discussion

Participation would provide both Council and residents with access to energy monitoring for Council buildings and residents with the opportunity to consider what solar technology to invest in and what system would be most beneficial to their needs.

Each participating Council will provide a web tool to zoom into rooftops and assess the potential the solar energy that would be generated at a specific location. The system has an address search function, mapping and the ability for the user to enter demand and tariff data to determine a business case for PV, storage and community aggregation models under different tariffs and market arrangements – i.e. to work out what size system they should invest in, whether to invest in storage, what tariff suits them.

The community would be able to discover how effective and efficient solar power can be in their locality and determine whether it is a viable option for their home. The SunSPoT tool offers a reliable and accessible information source, which Council can provide as a service to its residents, communities and businesses. The information would be used to make better energy investment decisions for rooftop opportunity, suitability, system size and financial payback.

Budget

Participation in this project consists of an upfront fee of $5,000, followed by an ongoing membership fee of up to $3,000 per annum to cover data hosting, reports and support. There are currently funds available in the Sustainability Levy to accommodate these costs. It should be highlighted that Council’s commitment to this program is on a year to year basis.

Conclusion

 

Funding the Solar Mapping Project allows Council and the community to be involved in the latest solar PV research and development. Additionally it would provide a unique forecasting opportunity to residents and local businesses who want detailed information on the opportunities that investing in solar energy as an alternative energy source in their home or business can deliver.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-            

 

1.   Participate in The Solar Mapping Project, consisting of an upfront fee of $5,000 and first year membership of $3,000; and

 

2.   Prior to the completion of the first year determine if the program should be supported for year two and three.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Policy Review - Phase 1

 

 

Subject:          Policy Review - Phase 1    

Record No:    SU241 - 36168/17

Division:         Corporate Services Division

Author(s):      Craig Dalli 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Council at its meeting of the 19 June 2017 endorsed a Governance Document Framework to provide structure and clarity to Council’s various guidance documents. Policies are one of the key documents. These are adopted and reviewed every four (4) years to ensure they are up to date, compliant with current legislation and guidelines issued by State and Commonwealth agencies, consistent with Council’s objectives and with contemporary and industry standards. The approved Framework included revised formats for key documents - Policies, Management Directives and Procedure.

 

The purpose of this report is to update Council on progress in implementing the Governance Document Framework and conducting the review of Council Policies. Phase one of the review of Council Policies is complete and 22 Policies will be recommended for adoption. The report also recommends which existing Policies will be reformatted or deleted due to being consolidated with other Policies or repositioned in the Framework as Management Directives, Procedures or other operational document types.

 

Background

 

Council at its meeting of 19 June 2017 considered a report outlining a Governance Document Framework and resolved to endorse the Framework. Council noted that Policies reviewed and recommended for adoption in the Framework are to be reported to the July and August meetings of Council, given the number of Policies involved.

 

Council’s Policy Manual (electronically accessible at AT-3) contains all policies adopted by Council. A comprehensive review is normally undertaken every four (4) years to ensure they are up-to-date, compliant with current legislation and mandated guidelines issued by State and Commonwealth agencies, and are consistent with Council’s objectives and with contemporary and industry best practice.

 

In conjunction with the current review of Policies, implementation of the Governance Document Framework auctioned to provide structure, guidance and clarity to the purpose of Council’s various guidance documents.

 

Since the last review of Council Policies in 2012, a number have either been consolidated with other Policies or statutory instruments such Council’s Development Control Plan. Best practice information management is to ensure there is a ‘single source of truth’ for such information on websites and information management systems, to ensure reliable and current information is available to the community.

 

In other cases, with the adoption of the new Governance Document Framework, the previous information in the Policy now belongs in other document types under the Framework, such as Management Directives, Procedures, Delegations, Service Standards and the like.

 

The complete listing of existing Council Policies in the Policy Manual appearing at AT-1 to this report identifies the Policies to be retained and those which are being reviewed for adoption as updated Policies under the Governance Document Framework. The listing also shows Policies recommended for deletion, with a short explanatory note on each.

In reviewing the Policy documents, changes in legislation, government policy, standards and Council goals and practices have been taken into consideration, as well as an examination of industry best practice.

 

Former Policies now incorporated into new document types need to be rescinded to make way for the replacement documents.

 

What is a Policy?

 

A Policy is a high level formal statement of Council’s position that establishes the principles, directives, rules and actions to be applied in relation to a particular subject matter. All Policies should support the Council’s Mission, Value Statements and Objectives.

 

As outlined in the Governance Document Framework, a Policy must be adhered to and there is no discretion or deviation permitted without prior Council approval. A proposal to create, amend or delete a Policy can come from Council or senior management but the authority to approve, amend or delete a Policy must be by Council resolution.

 

Minor amendments to a Council Policy can be authorised by the General Manager if in his/her opinion the amendment does not:-

 

·    Change the intent of the Policy;

·    Impact upon the community;

·    Result in a conflict with an existing Policy; and

·    Have legal or financial implications.

 

Conclusion

 

It will be recommended that the existing Policies no longer applicable or to be reclassified as operational matters under the Framework as listed in AT-1, be removed from the Policy Manual. The first group of revised Policies that have been reviewed and updated and which meet the standards for Policies in the Governance Document Framework are those listed at AT-2. They will be recommended for Adoption. The full version of the current Policies in the Policy Manual is available at AT-3 (electronically).

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-

 

1.   Receive and note the information;

 

2.   Rescind the Policies listed in AT-1 to the Report that are listed as recommended for deletion, in accordance with the reasons detailed; and

 

3.   Note the Policies listed in AT-1 that will be rescoped and reformatted as Management Directives or other document types which better reflect their operational nature, in accordance with the Governance Document Framework.

 

4.   Adopt the reviewed and updated Policies listed and presented alongside their predecessor Policy references in AT-2 to this Report, and listed below:

 

Car Share Parking Policy

Community Engagement Policy

Notification of Development Applications Policy

 

Councillor Access to Non-Public Information Policy

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Update on the Long Term Lease of 266 Longueville Rd to Design, Construct and Operate a Seniors Living Village.

 

 

Subject:          Update on the Long Term Lease of 266 Longueville Rd to Design, Construct and Operate a Seniors Living Village.   

Record No:    SU6024 - 39242/17

Division:         General Managers Unit

Author(s):      Geoff Douglas; Craig Wrightson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

This report provides an update on the proposed design, construction and operation of a seniors living village at 266 Longueville Road, Lane Cove under a 99 year lease agreement. Council has progressed the lease of the site to Australian Unity and the next stage in the process will be the lodgment of a Development Application in the coming weeks. It is recommended the report be received and noted.

 

Background

 

Council’s adopted Major Projects Strategic Plan 2007 – 2016 identified a number of Council assets which could be developed to enable better social and community outcomes for residents and ratepayers. The former Bowling Club at 266 Longueville Road was one of the sites identified.

Council has also given consideration to the accommodation needs of its ageing population in several policy documents. Lane Cove Seniors Social Plan 2010-2014 observes that:

People are living longer, and leading healthier lives for longer. There are more ‘young-old’ retirees seeking housing suited to their active lifestyles. There is an increase in the number of frail, very old people...creating a greater demand for housing that incorporates some forms of support. For people over the age of 55 this means housing which is adaptable, low maintenance, secure and enhances their independence.[1].

Goal S3 of the Social Plan aims to support older people in Lane Cove to remain in their homes and community. It sets the objective to:

Encourage the creation of more accessible and affordable housing which is appropriate for Seniors. This includes the specific provision of self-care units in new developments, as well as promoting the concepts of Universal Housing design in all new housing and renovations.”[2].

Council identified the opportunity to develop a Seniors Living Village on the disused bowling green area at 266 Longueville Rd, along with an onsite park and a pedestrian pathway to a proposed recreation facility on the adjacent Golf Course. A consideration of the proposed Seniors Living Village is that it integrates with the proposed adjoining Golf Club redevelopment which is expected to provide an indoor sports complex, meetings rooms and café / restaurant.

The proposed development at 266 Longueville Rd will satisfy the specific actions in Council’s Seniors Social Plan, whilst retaining Council land ownership.

In 2013 Council consulted with the community, in accordance with Clause 57 of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act, on a proposal to amend the planning controls under the LEP 2009 and DCP 2010 for the western part of 266 Longueville Road, Lane Cove and to reclassify the land under the LEP from 'community' to 'operational' land.

A specific Development Control Plan (DCP) has been established for the site at 266 Longueville Rd which sets out Council’s objectives in seeking development of the site. Those include in the DCP (DCP Amendment - 11 April 2014) provided for urban renewal, setting benchmarks for residential accommodation for older people, promotes environmentally-sustainable design and enhances connections and access to natural and recreational amenity.

Bridge Advisory Group was engaged in 2015 to determine if there was a business case for developing the site as a Seniors Living facility, who concluded that:

 

“The residents of Lane Cove are not currently served by an adequate choice of good quality Retirement Living options within the LGA.  “Ageing in Place”, maintaining existing social networks and keeping communities together is a key part of healthy ageing.  Looking forward there is a growing need to provide additional Retirement Living and Residential Aged Care facilities within the area.  

 

The site at 266 Longueville Road is one of the only sites in the LGA with sufficient size to accommodate this much needed facility.  The Bridge Report demonstrates that the business case supports the development under a long term lease of the site to the private sector. It is therefore recommended that Council proceed with the procurement strategy outlined in the report.”

 

Discussion

 

A broad overview of the development opportunities and constraints can be summarised as:-

·         The site will be retained as Council owned property;

·         A long-term lease of 99 years is available to the successful bidder, reflecting the standard market terms/expectations of seniors living village residents for their apartment sub-leases across Australia;

·         After 99 years, the site/lease will revert to Council, but it is expected that Council will run a similar bid process for experienced operators to continue the operations of the seniors village and all of its associated profits, assets and liabilities.  However, Council will have the option to operate the village if it so chooses;

·         Accordingly, throughout the lease term, Council will undertake that the seniors village residents will maintain 99 year leases over their apartments;

·         Lease payments to be structured such that prepayment(s) to Council occur on or soon after execution of the lease;

·         The Site area is approximately 9,200m2, of which approximately 5,940 m2 is developable;

·         Developable area is zoned ‘R4’ – High Density Residential;

·         Building height set at a relative level of 62.8m AHD (level with the neighbouring ‘Timber Tops’ residential development near the southern boundary). This was reduced from AHD 65.5 at the time of finalisation of the LEP as the height was designed to accommodate lift overruns. When the DCP was prepared the Development assessment process intent was that lift overruns could exceed the building height limit, provided there is no impact;

·         Floor Space Ratio of 1.1:1, and up to 1.6:1 after allowing for the SEPP Seniors Living Clause 45 Vertical Village bonus of 0.5:1;

·         Various site setbacks reflecting the street frontage, neighbours and golf course vegetation and bushland buffer;

·         Avoidance of a ‘long wall’ of buildings along the northern site boundary due to existing houses near the neighbouring northern boundary; and

·         A public pedestrian pathway to be constructed near the site’s northern boundary down to the bushland zone providing access to a proposed Council pathway to the golf course clubhouse.

 

Bid Process

 

This transaction is a long term lease, hence s55 of the Local Government Act requiring the calling of Tenders did not apply. Council therefore conducted an open Expression of Interest (EOI) process, formally commencing 14 October 2015, in accordance with its Tender and Quotations Procedures. A total of eleven (11) submissions were received in response to the EOI request. Council subsequently shortlisted 6 firms to submit final bids including commercial terms.  The bids were evaluated against the following weighted criteria:

 

RfB - EVALUATION CRITERIA

%

The value of upfront payment and most commercial and beneficial terms. When evaluating the “upfront payment”, a higher evaluation shall be assigned to a higher payment offered. Any mark-ups of the draft Lease Agreement which seek to transfer risks or obligations to Council, will receive a less favourable evaluation.

60%

Development controls.  Regarding how well the Bidder’s response is perceived to address compliance requirements per the site-specific DCP requirements.

10%

Seniors living village operating model. regarding how well the Bidder’s response is perceived to deliver the seniors living village - from an operating model perspective - for residents and community.

10%

Seniors living village design. Regarding how well the Bidder’s response is perceived to deliver the seniors living village - from a design perspective - for residents and community

10%

Experience, capacity and capability. Regarding how well the Bidder is perceived to have the demonstrated experience, capacity & capability to deliver its respective seniors living village Bid.

5%

Work, health & safety and environment & sustainability. Regarding how well the Bidder is perceived to have demonstrated the adequacy of its WH&S and Environmental & Sustainability practices.

5%

Total

100%

 

The assessment was formally considered by Council at its meeting of 21 November, 2016 where Council resolved to enter into a 99 year lease with Australian Unity (or their nominated related entity) to deliver the facility.

 

Since that date, staff have been documenting the deal with Australian Unity. This included preparation of a Development Application which has now been prepared and is proposed to lodged in the coming weeks. As part of the Development Application process, a public information session is proposed with representatives from the Australian Unity consultant team presenting the scheme. As the application is on Council land, a consultant will be engaged to assess the application and it will be considered and determined by the State Government’s District Planning Panel.

 

Conclusion

 

The development of a Senior’s Living Facility at 266 Longueville Road will provide much needed accommodation in the local area. The commercial outcome will also fund the proposed Golf Club redevelopment which is expected to provide an indoor sports complex, meetings rooms and café / restaurant. The lodgment of a Development Application is a significant milestone in the process.

Ordinary Council Meeting 17 July 2017

Council decision making and use of resources prior to the Local Government Election

 

 

Subject:          Council decision making and use of resources prior to the Local Government Election    

Record No:    SU5619 - 38735/17

Division:         Corporate Services Division

Author(s):      Geoff Banting 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The Office of Local Government has recently released two (2) circulars relating to the 2017 local government elections. The Circulars 17-11 and 17-12 advise Council of decision making and the use of Council resources prior to the election.

 

Background

 

Circular 17-11 provided as AT-1 sets out the following:-

 

·    Councils are expected to assume a “caretaker” role during election periods to ensure that major decisions are not made which would limit the actions of an incoming council;

·    Councils, the general manager or any other delegate of the council (other than a Joint Regional Planning Panel or the Central Sydney Planning Committee) must not exercise the following functions during the caretaker period:-

Entering into any contract or undertaking involving an expenditure or receipt by the council of an amount equal to or greater than $150,000 or 1% of the council’s revenue from rates in the preceding financial year (whichever is the larger);

Determining a “controversial development application”, except where a failure to make such a determination would give rise to a deemed refusal, or such a deemed refusal arose before the commencement of the caretaker period;

Appointing or reappointing the council’s general manager (except for temporary appointments); and

·    In certain circumstances, these functions may be exercised with the approval of the Minister.

 

Circular 17-12 provided as AT-2 sets out the following:-

 

·    Council officials (including Administrators) must use council resources lawfully, ethically, effectively and carefully keeping in mind the council’s code of conduct and other policies such as the policy on the payment of expenses and the provision of facilities to mayors and councillors;

·    “Electoral matter” for the purposes of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 broadly includes any matter that is intended or likely to affect voting in an election. The name, photograph and likeness of a candidate fall within the definition of “electoral matter”; and

·    Council publications that promote the achievements of the council may also potentially fall within the definition of “electoral matter”.

 


 

Conclusion

 

That Council acknowledge and adhere to the requirements set out in circulars 17-11 and 17-12 from the Office of Local Government regarding decision making and use of resources prior to the 2017 election.
