Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Notice of Motion - Funding the Lane Cove Bike Plan

 

 

Subject:          Notice of Motion - Funding the Lane Cove Bike Plan    

Record No:    SU1330 - 31762/20

Division:         Lane Cove Council

Author(s):      Councillor Andrew Zbik 

 

 

Background

 

In October 2019 Lane Cove Council adopted the revised Lane Cove Bike Plan. The Bike Plan is a comprehensive strategic action plan which allows Council to prioritise its improvements to the cycling network. The aim of the Bike Plan is to accommodate investment into enhancing safety, convenience and mobility for cyclists. The updated Bike Plan that Council adopted in October 2019 will be utilised to assist in planning for cyclist infrastructure, programs, implementation and maintenance.

 

The Bike Plan (2019) estimated the total cost implementation would be $2,909,000 over a recommended five-year action plan.

 

For several years, Lane Cove Council has budgeted approximately $150,000 per financial year towards Bike infrastructure in Lane Cove as part of the footpath budget allocation.

 

Discussion

 

Following the adoption of the Lane Cove Council Bike Plan in 2019, there has been no specific discussion since about how the Bike Plan will be properly funded.

 

As a point of comparison to the approximate $150,000 per annum Lane Cove is currently spending on implementing its Bike Plan, the below table shows what funding three of our neighbouring Local Government Areas are committing towards the implementation of their Bike Plans:

 

Local Government Area

Financial year 18/19

Financial year 19/20

Financial year 20/21

Source

North Sydney 

$200,000

$490,000

$1,190,000

North Sydney Council Delivery Program 2018/2019 to 2020/2021 - "Bike Share Infrastructure Program", "Cycling Strategy Priority Route Items" & "Cycling Strategy Projects to be established"

Ryde

$380,000

$680,000

$350,000

Cycleways Program budget from the Ryde Four Year Delivery Program & One Year Operational Plan 2018-2022 & 2019-2023 & 2020 – 2024.

Willoughby

$341,400

$288,150

$2,012,000

Willoughby Operational Plan 2018-2019, 2019-2020, 2020 – 2021

 

Of note from the above table, North Sydney and Willoughby are planning considerable increases in funding to implement their Bike Plans in the 2020/2021 financial years. Hunters Hill Council is currently spending $50,000 undertaking community consultation to review their 2004 Bike Plan.

 

At the current rate of funding, it would take up to 20 years to fully implement the Lane Cove Bike Plan. There is no specific budget item for cycling infrastructure to implement the Lane Cove Bike Plan in the current Council budget and budget process.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of residents opting to cycle has reportedly increased. Lane Cove Council spent a lot of money, time and effort to review and update its Bike Plan in 2019. Therefore, it is appropriate that Council commit to properly funding the implementation of the Bike Plan.

 

New cycleway infrastructure meets the requirements of receiving funding from Section 7.11 developer contributions. An additional contribution towards the Lane Cove Bike Plan from section 7.11 contributions in the 2020/2021 financial year I believe is appropriate to ‘kick start’ funding the Lane Cove Bike Plan following the financial year the Bike Plan was adopted by Council. The below motion is intended to give more scope for funding the Bike Plan from various sources for the financial years 2021/2022 to 2025/2026.

 

By making a larger funding contribution to the Lane Cove Bike Plan in the 2020/2021 financial year will help to provide much needed stimulus for local and regional construction contractors to help our local and regional economy recover from the impact of COVID-19.

 

Comment by General Manager

 

Clause 13.3 and 13.4 of Council’s Code of Meeting Practice states:-

 

3.13 If the general manager considers that a notice of motion submitted by a councillor for

consideration at an ordinary meeting of the council has legal, strategic, financial or policy

implications which should be taken into consideration by the meeting, the general manager

may prepare a report in relation to the notice of motion for inclusion with the business

papers for the meeting at which the notice of motion is to be considered by the council.

 

13.4 A notice of motion for the expenditure of funds on works and/or services other than those

already provided for in the council’s current adopted operational plan must identify the

source of funding for the expenditure that is the subject of the notice of motion. If the notice

of motion does not identify a funding source, the general manager must either:

 

(a) prepare a report on the availability of funds for implementing the motion if adopted

for inclusion in the business papers for the meeting at which the notice of motion is

to be considered by the council, or

 

(c) by written notice sent to all councillors with the business papers for the meeting for

which the notice of motion has been submitted, defer consideration of the matter by the council to such a date specified in the notice, pending the preparation of such a

report.

 

Given Council is considering the 2020/21 Budget at this Council Meeting. In terms of s7.11 funds available, the 2019/20 Budget is as follows:-

 

Opening

Contributions

Budget Committed Exp

Expected Balance

1/07/2019

           13,864,000.00

     1,477,026.32

     12,025,000.00

           3,316,026.32

 


 

The Draft 2020/2021 Budget commits $3,500,000 of s7.11 funds to:-

 

Traffic Signals Mowbray / Centennial

       1,000,000.00

Traffic Signals Tambourine Bay Rd / Burns Bay Rd

       1,000,000.00

Golf Course Precinct

     1,500,000.00

 

Any additional funds collected from 2020/21 were proposed to be retained to fund the proposed Recreation Precinct at the Golf Course. On this basis Council would need to defer one of the s7.11 funded 2020/21 projects if it wishes to fund $800,000 in bicycle infrastructure.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.   Amend the Section 7.11 contribution plan to provide $800,000 of funding for the Lane Cove Bike Plan in the 2020/2021 financial year in addition to the $150,000 budgeted in the 2020/21 Budget;

 

2.   Council commit to fully funding and implementing the Lane Cove Bike Plan over the next five years;

 

3.   Council include in the budget a dedicated budget item for cycling infrastructure and activities; and

 

4.   A report be prepared by December 2020:-

 

a)   outlining the mix of funding from general revenue, section 7.11 contributions and other sources to fund the implementation the Lane Cove Bike Plan from the 2021/2022 to 2025/2026 financial years; and

b)   Identify grant options are currently available for funding the Lane Cove Bike Plan, how many grant applications Council has submitted over the last five years and confirm what grant applications have been successful during the last five years.

Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Covid -19 June Update

 

 

Subject:          Covid -19 June Update    

Record No:    SU7888 - 31702/20

Division:         General Managers Unit

Author(s):      Craig Wrightson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

This report provides an update on Council’s response activities in relation to the outbreak of novel coronavirus virus (COVID-19). Council has undertaken numerous initiatives to support the community and has continued to operate on a business as usual basis. With the gradual lifting of restrictions Council has commenced reopening services. It is recommended the report be received and noted and Council oppose proposed changes to the timing for payment of s7.11 local infrastructure contributions until the issuing of an Occupation Certificate.

 

Discussion

 

Library Services

 

Lane Cove Library reopened 1 June, delivering Click and Collect on weekdays between 9.30am- 3pm.  Over the coming weeks additional services will be expanded in line with Public Health orders. During the school holidays 6 -17 July a specific time slot will be available for Seniors to ensure they have access.

 

Council’s Library to your Door service continues to be popular in May, approximately 155 Library to Your Door deliveries and lent more than 286 items.

 

Council’s Home Library Service for residents who are unable to visit the Library due to age, illness, disability or lack of mobility. During COVID-19 Lane Cove has extended membership to anyone over 70 years of age.

 

While the Lane Cove Library was closed extensive refurbishment work (including painting) was undertaken to the walls (including timber paneling) and ceilings.

 

Customer Service Centre

 

Council’s service provision continues to focus online and via the telephone. Risks assessments and planning is now complete to allow the Customer Service Centre to reopen as of 15 June for face-to-face service to resume. In addition, face-to-face meetings with Council’s duty planners will resume.

 

Council will continue to have the majority of staff work from home in line with the State Government’s advice in relation to Stage 1 of the recovery plan that indicates this should occur if possible, with all staff returning at Stage 3.

 

Aquatic Centre

 

The Gym will reopen 13 June, 2020, with exact opening times announced once all guidelines are released.

 

During the closure the learn to swim pool and recreation pools were drained and repairs undertaken to the tiling and new tiling was completed in the sauna shower.

Work on the Outdoor Pool continues with works programmed for completion in time for the summer season.

Kindy Cove Child Care Centre

 

After the Federal Government announced free child care there was a funding gap for Council operated Child Care Centres as councils did not also receive the Job keeper payment to offset the staff costs. The State Government has now entered into a funding agreement with councils to fund the majority of the shortfall, back dated to when the free child care scheme commenced, which has relieved the financial burden from Council of an operating loss of approximately $16,000 per week.

 

Payment of s7.11 Charges

 

Recent amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, allow the Minister for Planning to mandate timing for the payment of s7.11 Developer Infrastructure Contributions. LGNSW have advised the Minister’s intends to provide cashflow relief for applicants by postponing the condition for the payment of local infrastructure contributions until the issuing of an Occupation Certificate. Currently most councils require payment at the commencement of construction when the Construction Certificate is issued. The change is to apply in the future and retrospectively for any consents where a Construction Certificate has not yet been issued. On larger developments this is a timing difference of years and will greatly impact the timing and the delivery of supporting infrastructure for new developments. Such a change will greatly affect the St Leonards South Precinct, as it will delay significantly the collection of funds to purchase the land for the Central Park, which is undesirable for both the current and future residents of the precinct. It is therefore recommended Council write and object to the proposed change.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That:-

 

1.   The report be received and noted; and

2.   Council write to The Hon. Rob Stokes, MP, Minister for Planning and Public Spaces objecting to the proposal to allow payment of s7.11 prior to the issue of the Occupation Certificate as it will greatly impact the timing and the delivery of supporting infrastructure for new developments. If the Minister determines that this amendment must proceed then an exemption process should be developed so the where councils are collecting for infrastructure directly related to the individual development (e.g. funds to acquire land for a park in the neighbourhood), the Minister can direct payment be made at Construction Certificate stage.

Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Consultation Results on the 2020/2021 Draft Budget, Fees and Charges and Delivery Program and Operational Plan

 

 

Subject:          Consultation Results on the 2020/2021 Draft Budget, Fees and Charges and Delivery Program and Operational Plan    

Record No:    SU7417 - 30068/20

Division:         Corporate Services Division

Author(s):      Jessica Quilty 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

This report provides consideration of submissions received as a result of the public exhibition of Council’s Draft 2020-22 Delivery Program, Draft 2020-21 Operational Plan and Draft 2020-21 Budget together with the Draft 2020-2021 Schedule of Fees and Charges. Council approved the exhibition of the draft documents at its meeting of 20 April 2020 and the statutory public exhibition period closed on 5 June 2020. Twenty (20) submissions were received in total. These are addressed in the report but require no changes to the Delivery Program and Operational Plan. Where applicable they will be pursued administratively.  Some changes are recommended for the exhibited Draft 2020-21 Budget and Draft 2020-2021 Schedule of Fees and Charges as a result of further internal reviews.

 

Background

 

At its meeting dated 20 April 2020 Council resolved that:

 

“1.  Council adopt for the purpose of public exhibition, the 2020-2021 Draft Budget and Draft Fees and Charges, the Delivery Program 2020-2022, and the Operational Plan 2020-21;

2.   Council undertake community consultation for a period of six (6) weeks as per the consultation strategy outlined in the report; and

3.   Following public exhibition, the Draft Community Strategic Plan, the 2020-2021 Draft Budget and Draft Fees and Charges and the Delivery Program 2020-2022, and the Operational Plan 2020-21, together with a report on any submissions received, be considered at the Council meeting to be held 15 June 2020.”

 

Discussion

 

Community consultation on the Draft Plans was undertaken from 23 April 2020 to 5 June 2020 and included:-

·    An online exhibition;

·    An eNewsletter sent to approximately 6,000 recipients;

·    Promotion on social media;

·    Featuring in Council’s Quarterly Newsletter; and

·    Notifications to Council Advisory Committees.

 

Submissions

 

Twenty (20) submissions from the community were received on the draft documents. Comments and responses on the points raised in these submissions are in (AT-1) to this report. The submissions are helpful in terms of future planning, however do not require the associated plans to be amended.  A brief outline of some of the submissions follows:-

·    Three (3) submissions focused on the Car Parking Special Rate on Business premises. To clarify the Special Rate Parking Levy has been in existence since 1979. Council continues to use it for new car carparks in the village and in this case - part of The Canopy (Rosenthal Car Park) funding which is required repay internal borrowing to finance the car park. Council’s planning controls require the provision of parking for commercial premises, the existing premises within the village do not provide customer parking. The levy is designed to provide the customer parking through alternate means;

·    Thirteen (13) submissions focused on implementing a ‘resolution tracker’ system so the public can ‘track’ Council resolutions. Whilst it is acknowledged that there is no central repository listing resolutions of Council and providing status updates it is noted:-

Any resolutions in respect of delivery program actions are reported regularly in council’s quarterly review;

Council is investigating the introduction of a search mechanism through the business paper report and minutes;

Regular status updates in relation to resolutions associated with community consultation items are published to the relevant consultation page/s (including post consultation updates);

Council’s snapshot provides a wealth of information updating the community on the current status of Council’s activities; and

The demand for such detail in a consolidated register has been minimal and currently does not justify the resources and cost required to maintain it given the availability of material of interest to the community elsewhere.

It is further noted that Council has internal measures to manage and track the implementation of Council resolutions including the generation of action sheets and workflows through the electronic document management system, regular auditing and reporting to the Executive Team.

·    A submission thanked Council for allocating funds towards Energy Emissions and Water Use Targets. These actions are funded from the sustainability levy; 

·    Two (2) submissions wanted greater funding for cycling infrastructure. $150,000 is specifically allocated for bicycle infrastructure projects. However, additional funding is provided through various maintenance programs for shared footpath/roadway bicycle paths (approx. $700,000);

·    Two (2) submissions were received in relation to the reduced funding for ‘Every Child a Bushland Experience’. Over the past 3 years, expenditure has been tracking well under $8,000 which is why the amount was reduced. This is mainly due to the field of mars educators now coming to the Lane Cove LGA and running various educational modules on site. Previously, participants were transported to the education centre; and

·    Various other matters.

 

The Draft 2020-22 Delivery Program and Draft 2020-21 Operational Plan are attached at (AT-2).

 

Budget 2020-21

 

To recap, the operating result budgeted for in the 2020-21 financial year is a deficit of $4,200,000. After grants and contributions Council’s surplus is $ 14,025,185. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Council has seen a substantial change in revenue expectations in the following areas:-

·         Child & Occasional Care;

·         Bookings and Events;

·         Investments;

·         Commercial leasing;

·         Footpath licencing;

·         Parking Revenues; and

·         Fines.

 

The 2020-21 Budget has been further reviewed to take into account changes to materials and contracts and other revenues such as:-

·    $340,583 in increased costs to investments properties; and

·    $340,575 in increased revenue from a lease.

 

$20m has also been allocated in future years 2021/22 & 2022/23 to fund the St Leonards Plaza, now that a Term Sheet has been executed. The revised draft 2020-21 budget is attached (AT-3).

 

Fees & Charges 2020/21

 

An internal review is proposing new and/or amendments. Those changes are summarized below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

As part of the internal review a detailed review has been conducted on the GST status of all fees and charges. GST on some fees and charges have been updated to reflect the correct GST status for that line item. The draft Fees and Charges 2020-21 are attached (AT-4).

 

Long Term Financial Plan

 

The Long-Term Financial Plan (LTFP) is the key ten year financial planning document that contains a series of financial strategies and accompanying performance indicators that Council considers when making significant strategic decisions about resource allocation. The LTFP is required to be updated annually as part of the development of the operational plan and reflects the proposed 2020/21 Budget (AT-5). Council continues to meet all the relevant performance measures beyond the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

 

Conclusion

 

It is considered that the minimal response during the public exhibition period reflects general

community support for Councils proposed activities, Budget and Fees and Charges for 2020/21. It

is therefore recommended that Council adopt the documents and 2020/21 Rates, Fees and

Charges and Domestic Waste Charges as proposed.

Record No:    SU785 - 31176/20

Division:         Corporate Services Division

Author(s):      Jessica Quilty 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

Council has since the 1990’s maintained a ‘debt free policy’, however, with the interest rate environment, it is appropriate council assess the option of using debt to fund infrastructure. The most suitable project that meets these criteria is the proposed new Sports and Recreation Precinct at the Lane Cove Golf Course.  As per Council’s resolution dated 18th May, Council engaged DMB Consulting to undertake a review of Council’s financial modelling to verify the long-term financial projection and impact $20M debt would have on the fit for the future ratios. It was concluded that the proposed project and the associated borrowings would not be detrimental to Council’s long-term financial sustainability.  It is recommended that the report be received and noted.

 

Background

 

Council at its meeting dated 18th May 2020 resolved:-

 

1.    Receive and note the report;

2.    Pursue the use of debt as part of the funding strategy for the proposed new Sports and Recreation Precinct at the Lane Cove Golf Course;

3.    Engage an independent financial adviser/consultant to review the debt financing proposed; and

4.  The report obtained in point 3 above be submitted to the June Council meeting.

 

Discussion

 

Council prepared alternative long-term financial projections which showed the impact on the fit for the future ratio’s with $20M debt vs without which was assessed by Mr Dennis Banicevic of DMB Consulting who has over 30 years experience in local government finance and audit. which concluded (AT-1):-

 

·    Council achieves all the prescribed benchmarks in the period from 2022 to 2030;

·    Council’s indicators are markedly better than the prescribed benchmarks throughout this period; and

·    In 2021, when the anticipated borrowings are taken up, the Operating Performance Ratio is negative as a result of the Covid-19 impacts and this in turn pushes the Debt Service Cover Ratio to below the benchmark of 2 times.

 

Based on the information the consultant reviewed, it was determined that Council is in a sound and stable financial position. It is also stated, that to borrow $20m under the terms described appears reasonable from both an appropriate purpose and affordability perspective. DMB Consulting also notes the present Covid-19 environment presents some short-term financial challenges for Council which have been factored into the long-term financial projections.

 


 

Conclusion

 

Council is at a unique moment in history, with the lowest interest rate environment in history. It’s ‘debt free’ policy has served it well, as it encouraged Council to diversify revenue streams and undertaking asset recycling through the Major Projects Plan to deliver significant infrastructure, including the Library, Lane Cove Community Hub (Little St) and The Canopy. The opportunity to access debt at 0.9% interest via a loan from TCorp for the Sports and Recreation Precinct is appropriate, particularly as this infrastructure will provide a revenue stream to assist in repayment of the debt. Initial financial modelling which has been verified by DMB Consulting indicates that Council can borrow up to $20m over 10 years while continuing to meet all the Fit for the Future Ratios.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the report be received and noted.

Subject:          St Leonard’s Plaza Update – Term Sheet and LEP Amendment    

Record No:    SU7134 - 31709/20

Division:         General Managers Unit

Author(s):      Sebastian Stivala 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The purpose of this report is to update Council on the progress and status of the St Leonard’s Plaza Project specifically the finalisation of the Term Sheet between Transport for NSW (TfNSW) and Lane Cove Council (Council), and the status of the proposed LEP amendment to facilitate the St Leonard’s Over-rail Plaza.

 

Background

 

Council and TfNSW agreed to establish terms and conditions as a precursor to any contractual commitment to the project both TfNSW and Council require further documentation of the design, delivery methods, allocation of project responsibility and risk, funding and timing and Sydney Trains (ST) approvals.

 

Discussion

 

1.       Term Sheet

 

Council received the completed and signed Term Sheet, endorsed by all parties; TfNSW, Sydney Trains (ST) and Rail Corp (RC) on 20 May 2020, this was duly executed by Council on 26 May 2020. The finalisation of the Term Sheet signifies a critical mile stone and facilitates the next stage of consultation and design development of St Leonard’s Plaza. Council will now prepare further preliminary design and other relevant reporting to meet its contractual arrangements with TfNSW and others, in order to obtain the next stage of approvals.

 

Next Steps

 

Council’s lead design consultant, Aurecon and landscape designer Arcadia will continue to develop design and coordinate all relevant consultants internally and externally over the next stages of the project. Aurecon is an Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO), AEO certification is mandatory for delivery of transport projects by the Asset Standards Authority (ASA) of Transport for NSW (TfNSW). Aurecon and Council will now coordinate with Sydney Trains to:-

 

a)    Obtain a Detailed Site Survey DSS;

b)    Proceed with Canberra Avenue Geotech Investigations;

c)    Investigate the structures within the rail corridor;

d)    Undertake ST Stakeholder consultation. This includes specific stakeholder groups identified + SiD and Security Risk Workshop/s;

e)    Finalise Concept Design Review (package currently with ST);

f)     Preliminary Design Review (Design development in consultation with ST);

g)    Coordinate with ST Tier 3 Configuration Change Board (CCB) gate way approval process;

h)    Inform on the Consultation process;

i)     Develop design for Tender; and

j)     Procurement of a head contractor.

 

2.       LEP Amendment - Additional Permitted Uses to facilitate the development of the St Leonards Over-rail Plaza

 

Council adopted a proposed LEP amendment in October 2019, to amend Schedule 1 of the LEP to include additional Permitted Uses to facilitate the development of the St Leonards Over-rail Plaza.

 

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, has issued a Gateway Determination for the Planning Proposal on 29 May 2020 with a series of conditions. Council must now address these conditions prior to exhibition. The planning proposal is classified as low impact and Council has been given delegated authority to complete the amendment, a public hearing is not required.

 

Next Steps

 

Council will undertake the necessary amendments to the LEP, Maps and create notification material for exhibition of the planning proposal.

 

Conclusion

 

With the execution of the Term Sheet and approval of the LEP amendment Council can progress with design and planning activities proposed for the next stages of the St Leonard’s Plaza project.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council -

 

1.    Receive and note the execution of the Term Sheet and LEP amendment;

 

2.    Note the next stage/s of the project;

 

3.     Progress with design development, planning and associated activities accordingly;

4.     Receive a further report at the appropriate time to determine as to whether Council proceed with the Construction of the Plaza; and

5.     Proceed with the exhibition of the proposed LEP Amendment and receive a further report on the results post the exhibition.

Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Outcome of Rezoning Review for 524-542 Pacific Highway, St Leonards (the 'Telstra site')

 

 

Subject:          Outcome of Rezoning Review for 524-542 Pacific Highway, St Leonards (the 'Telstra site')    

Record No:    SU5784 - 29651/20

Division:         Environmental Services Division

Author(s):      Terry Tredrea; Lara Fusco 

 

 

The purpose of this report is to inform Council of the outcome of the Rezoning Review, held on 20 May 2020 to determine Planning Proposal 31 at 524-542 Pacific Highway, St Leonards (“the Telstra exchange site”). On 21 May 2020, the Sydney North Planning Panel determined that the Proposal did not demonstrate sufficient strategic merit to proceed to Gateway determination. The decision to refuse the Proposal is final. It is recommended that Council receive and note the report.

 

Background

 

Council received a Planning Proposal (Planning Proposal 31 or ‘the Proposal’) for the site at 524-542 Pacific Highway, St Leonards. The planning proposal was subsequently placed on hold and reactivated a number of times by the proponent to await the release of the Department of Planning’s Draft St Leonards/Crows Nest 2036 Plan (the “2036 Plan”).

 

The Proposal sought to amend the Lane Cove Local Environmental Plan 2009 (LEP) to rezone the site from B3 (commercial only) to B4 (residential and commercial) in order to permit a single 53-storey canter-levered tower development which would extend over the existing Telstra Exchange building (and which would remain intact and be operational pre and post construction).

 

The proposal would increase the maximum Floor Space Ratio (FSR) from 17.1:1 to 21.3:1 (17.2:1 as residential and 4.1:1 as non-residential), and increase the maximum height of buildings from 72 metres to 182 metres (resulting in 53 storeys and a final RL 264).

 

Council determination

 

Council considered PP31 at its 16 March 2020 meeting and unanimously refused the Planning Proposal. The summarised reasons for refusal are as follows:-

 

Council’s position was that the Proposal failed the strategic merit test, with the following strategic planning documents, as the proposal is inconsistent with:-

 

·    A Metropolis of Three Cities which identifies the St Leonards Strategic Centre as a major employment asset of the Eastern Economic Corridor for “attracting investment, business activity and jobs in strategic centres across Greater Sydney increasing access to a wide range of jobs, goods and services close to people’s homes and supporting the 30-minute city.” (p 119);

 

·    The North District Plan's priorities and actions for the St Leonards Commercial area which identify “the importance of the precinct as a key employment centre in Greater Sydney”, in particular as a health and education (employment) "super precinct" in the long term; 

 

·    The Draft Plan’s Economic Feasibility Report that recommends retaining most or all of the existing B3 zoned sites, and allowing additional floorspace including mixed use with minimum commercial floorspace only in the B4 zone;

 

·    The Draft St Leonards/Crows Nest 2036 Plan, including the proposition by the proponent that commercial land in St Leonards/Crows Nest represents a negative return on investment which is refuted by the 2036 Plan’s Economic Feasibility Report, nor does the Proposal does not acknowledge or take into account recent development and leasing activity (i.e. JQZ 16-storey, A-grade commercial building). 

 

It is also inconsistent with the "Significant Site" concept of the Draft 2036 Plan, as the proposal fails to achieve the required amalgamation pattern with the AMA building; underutilises the potential 28,000m2 of A-grade commercial space; constrains the adjoining site (i.e. AMA building); and is inconsistent with the height concept of the Draft 2036 Plan, resulting in additional overshadowing of public spaces. (Note: as a result of height reduction in the December 2019 iteration, the proposal appears not to overshadow houses to the south of River Road);

 

·    Council’s exhibited and amended Draft Local Strategic Planning Statement, including the Principles for the Location of Additional Housing, and the attraction and growth of jobs in the St Leonards Commercial Office Precinct;

 

·      Council's "pilot project" approach to St Leonards centre, which encourage commercial land uses above that currently required. It is too soon to consider further B4 rezoning; and

 

·    The Draft 2036 Plan objectives, design criteria, design principles and actions, and the proposal has not appropriately responded to any change in circumstances.

Council was also of the view that the Proposal failed to address site-specific merit test regarding the underutilisation of the current potential commercial floor space (by 24%); the amenity and adverse traffic impacts of the car stacker at the intersection of Christie Street and Pacific Highway;  and the vehicular egress via Pacific highway is not justified due to the number and degree of non-compliances with the Draft 2036 Plan objectives, design criteria, design principles and actions, and the inability to amalgamate with 69 Christie Street (as per the Draft 2036 Plan).

 

The proponent sought a Rezoning Review prior to Council’s determination.

 

Discussion

 

The Rezoning Review was undertaken by the Sydney North Planning Panel (the Panel) on 20 May 2020. Council and the applicant were afforded the opportunity to present to the Panel and respond to questions from its members.

 

On the 21 May 2020, the Panel determined that the Proposal should not be submitted for a Gateway determination (AT-1).

 

The Panel stated that the Proposal did not demonstrate strategic or site-specific merit, and supported Council’s reasons for refusal. In its reasons, the Panel stated that:

 

“Importantly, the Panel considered the proposal is premature given the significant effort invested by Council and the Department in the St Leonards and Crows Nest 2036 Draft Plan and the need for that Plan to be completed. … The proposal, which proposes significantly less employment uses on the site than permitted under both the current LEP controls and as recommended in the St Leonards Crow Nest 2036 Draft Plan, does not support this key local and state strategic land use objective.”

 

The Panel also provided additional commentary regarding the height and overshadowing of the proposal to be excessive and shared Council concerns regarding the car stacker and proposed vehicular egress. The Panel also commented on the amalgamation with the adjoining AMA (Australian Medical Association) site as problematic, however considered the proposal to “be a less than elegant solution to the site’s challenges”. The decision of the Panel was unanimous.

 

Conclusion

 

Planning Proposal 31 for the land at 524-542 Pacific Highway, St Leonards was determined not to have sufficient strategic or site-specific merit to proceed to Gateway determination by the Sydney North Planning Panel. The decision to refuse this Planning Proposal is final.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council receive and note this report.

Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Northwood Shops LEP Gazettal and DCP Preparation

 

 

Subject:          Northwood Shops LEP Gazettal and DCP Preparation    

Record No:    SU6464 - 30614/20

Division:         Environmental Services Division

Author(s):      Terry Tredrea; Christopher Pelcz 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The purpose of this report is to advise Council of the outcome of the Northwood Shops Planning Proposal (PP29).

 

The Proposal sought to amend the current permissible uses in the B1 zone which would permit a 130-bed residential care facility above age-related retail uses for land at 4-18 Northwood Road and 274 and 274A Longueville Road Lane Cove. Height and floor space ratio were proposed to be increased. Council had refused the proposal in June 2018 (AT-1 & AT-2) and the applicant requested a review of Council’s decision by the NSW Department of Planning, Infrastructure & Environment (the Department).

 

A fast-track assessment process by the State Government, identified this Proposal to be fast-tracked on 28 April 2020. On 20 May 2020, the Northwood Shops Planning Proposal was Gazetted by the Department, permitting zoning changes at the Northwood Shops (from B1 Neighborhood Shops to B4 Mixed Use). The decision permits residential aged care (nursing home accommodation) and retail on the site and amends the height and floor space ratio (FSR) controls for the site.

 

Council should take some comfort that the height controls are in line with the community’s and Council’s expectations (AT-2) that the building be limited to RL 66.25, which equates to 3 storeys above street level. The applicant had sought permission for RL 70.25, equating to 4 storeys above street level.

 

The FSR has also been set lower than originally proposed by the proponent. The applicant had sought Floor Space controls of 1:1.98. The control has been set at a maximum of 1:1.85, Council had called for an FSR of 1.5:1. A minimum commercial FSR has also been included for the site as requested by Council.

 

With the Planning Proposal fast-tracked and now Gazetted, the next stage in the process requires:-

 

a.   The finalisation of a Development Control Plan (DCP) that gives effect to the LEP amendment and Council’s vision and requirements for the site; and

b.   the lodgment of a Development Application.

 

A draft DCP is currently being prepared to provide a satisfactory resolution of any concerns raised by Council and submissions from agencies and the community, which will be the subject of a further report to Council.

 

Background

 

Planning Proposal 29 sought to amend and extend the current permissible uses in the B1 zone which would permit a 130-bed residential care facility above age-related retail uses for land at 4-18 Northwood Road and 274 and 274A Longueville Road Lane Cove. Height and Floor space ratios were proposed to be increased.

 

At its 20 February 2017 Meeting, Council resolved not to support the planning proposal. The proponent lodged a Rezoning Review to the Sydney North Planning Panel on 2 May 2017. The Panel determined that the Northwood Shops Planning Proposal demonstrated both strategic and site-specific merit and that it be submitted for a Gateway Determination.

 

The Gateway conditionally approved on 26 September 2017 endorsed the Proposal, subject to the Planning Proposal addressing several conditions. The applicant submitted amended plans on 3 November 2017, including a draft Development Control Plan. These were assessed by Council officers and found to have not addressed several Gateway conditions relating to SEPP19 bushland and to traffic assessments (reported 15 January 2018). The applicant resubmitted amendments on 24 January and 9 February 2018. The amended proposal and its supporting documents, including the Draft Development Control Plan (see AT-3) were publicly exhibited between 8 March and 19 April 2018.

 

Following public exhibition, Council’s urban design consultant provided an assessment of the proposal and draft Development Control Plan and raised a number of concerns. These concerns were detailed in the report to the 18 June 2018 Council meeting. The applicant provided a response to this on 5 June 2018, however the concerns were only partially addressed.

 

At its 18 June 2018 meeting Council refused the Planning Proposal on town planning and urban design grounds. However, Council offered a set of modifications to the Planning Proposal which were considered necessary.

 

On 1 August 2019, the Department requested a meeting with Council and the applicant to discuss the previous Planning Proposal. There was general agreement about changing the zoning to B4 Mixed Use, moving the egress to the southern end of the site and generally complying with the 10m setback to bushland.  There was no agreement on the different views regarding height and FSR controls for the site.

 

As part of the State Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a fast-track assessment process was announced in April 2020. Its purpose was to accelerate the assessment and determination of projects that inject investment into the NSW economy and keep people in jobs. In order to be considered for fast-tracking, a project must already be in the system, be able to demonstrate public benefit through new public open spaces or affordable housing, demonstrate an ability to create jobs both during construction and once complete, and must be able to commence construction within six months if it’s a DA, or proceed to the DA phase within six months if it’s a rezoning.

 

This Planning Proposal was identified and announced as a fast track assessment project – Stage 1, and the Planning Proposal was made on 20 May 2020. The site was rezoned to B4 Mixed Use with a height limit of RL 66.25 metres and 1.85:1 floor space ratio, only if a residential care facility or mixed use development containing a care facility is provided on site.

 

Discussion

 

Council has never altered its position, as expressed in the June 2018 Council Resolution, that:-

 

“…Council [would] consider supporting a more modest scale of development that provides public benefits (such as affordable places, and retail and community facilities) under the Seniors Housing SEPP. This involves rezoning to B4 Mixed Use which would permit, with consent, a ‘Seniors housing’ development, with an uplift in height conditional upon the site being developed for ‘Seniors housing’ only, while an FSR bonus would only apply if the provisions of the SEPP (including public benefits and affordable places) are utilised.”

 

Council is now finalising with the applicant on the details of the draft Development Control Plan prior to public exhibition. Elements of changes to the original draft DCP (AT-3), some of which were agreed to by the applicant in June 2018 and August 2019 and some of which are Gazetted, are to be amended to the following:-

 

1.   Reduce maximum building height to RL 66.25 metres;

2.   Reduce maximum number of storeys along Northwood Road to 3 storeys;

3.   Reduce maximum street wall height along Northwood Road to 2 storeys;

4.   Reduce maximum number of storeys at the rear of the site to 5 storeys;

5.   Reinstate rear setback of 10 metres. (However, 6 metres is considered where it would allow an appropriate amount of space for established trees, offset native indigenous plants, and drainage that adequately protects the adjoining bushland);

6.   Replace on-site all indigenous trees removed by development;

7.   Replace site entry mid-block off Northwood Road and egress further south with a limit of one entry/egress at the southern end of the site;

8.   Provide in the basement a seniors’ entry separate from commercial /retail use, ensuring uncompromised emergency service vehicle access into the site;

9.   Add through-site links and view corridors of width 4.5m, but a preference for 6m width;

10. Add to inactive edges and blank walls the provision of screening, public art or `green' walls;

11. Require adequate soil depth along the side and rear boundaries to permit tree planting;

12. Consideration of other measures such as drainage protection of the downslope soil and landscape in the adjacent reserve. Also, sustainability measures such as solar panels and natural ventilation;

13. Provide new street trees and permeable paving to the existing Northwood Road verge and within the 3m setback to the proposal, and require that street front awnings do not compromise street trees;

14. Increase the area of the roof garden; and

15. Updated plans and elevation.

 

Conclusion

 

The Northwood Shops Planning Proposal No. 29 was Gazetted to permit rezoning of the Northwood Shops site from B1 Neighborhood Shops to B4 Mixed Use. The decision expands permissible land uses to include residential aged care (nursing home accommodation) and retail on the site and amends the height and floor space ratio (FSR) controls for the site.

 

A draft Development Control Plan is currently being prepared to provide a satisfactory resolution of the concerns raised by Council and the community.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-

1.   Note the Gazettal of Planning Proposal 29 for the Northwood Shops site; and

2.   Prepare a draft Development Control Plan for consideration by the Council, prior to public exhibition.

Ordinary Council Meeting 15 June 2020

Further Report - Design Review Panel

 

 

Subject:          Further Report - Design Review Panel     

Record No:    SU6644 - 31711/20

Division:         Environmental Services Division

Author(s):      Michael Mason; Craig Wrightson 

 

 

Executive Summary

 

The purpose of this report is to update on the formation of a Design Review Panel following the Councillor Workshop on the matter. It is recommended Council adopt the revised Terms of Refence for the Panel and receive a further report to select the members of the Design Review Panel.

 

Background

 

At its meeting on 18 May 2020 Council considered a report on the Terms of Reference for a Design Review Panel and resolved, in part, that Council:-

 

“2.   Defer consideration of this item to the June Council meeting; and

3.    Workshop the Design Review Panel’s Terms of Reference and clarify the fee structure prior to its next meeting.”

 

Discussion

 

The Draft Terms of Reference were workshopped by Councillors on 9 June, 2020 and revised Terms of Reference were prepared based on the feedback which are included as AT-1.

 

Clarity was also sought in relation to the fee structure for the service. Clause 248 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 prescribes a maximum fee for referral to a design review panel of $3,000 which is charged to applicants. Council will therefore need to cover ongoing costs of the Panel that fall outside of cost recovery. Due to the relatively low volume of applications, it is proposed to utilise the Local Planning Panel Budget to cover the shortfall in operational costs.

 

Panel members would be remunerated based on a flat rate. A review of similar panels at other councils indicates the following remuneration rates. There would also be additional upfront costs to appoint and constitute the panel and ongoing costs relating to administration (agendas, minutes, and notification letters).

 

 

Panel Member

Chair

Half day:

$1,000

$1,200

Full day:

$1,800

$2,100

 

Conclusion

 

It is recommended that Council endorse the establishment of a formal Design Review Panel, and consider a separate report in due course for the selection of panel members. The Panel will make a significant contribution at the early stage in the design of large-scale buildings, in particular Residential Flat Buildings, and any other project deemed suitable for consideration by staff. Council’s St Leonards South Precinct development controls have specific requirements for developments to demonstrate design excellence, integration and best practice sustainability performance, and the panel will provide an important assurance process to ensure this occurs.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:-

 

1.   Receive and note the Report;

 

2.   Council establish a Design Review Panel in line with the Terms of Reference included as AT-1; and

 

3.   Receive a further report to select the members of the Design Review Panel.
