Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Lennon Maher

 

Year 1 student from Wattle Grove, Lennon Maher, has pledged to walk 3.8km home from school once a week for an entire school term to raise money for the ChildFund Australia Dream Bike Appeal.

 

The six year-old took a practice walk from school to home before making the pledge which took approximately 1 hour and 1 minute. Lennon stated on Just Giving, a charity fundraising website, that there are many kids in other areas that have to walk longer distances.

 

The ChildFund Australia Dream Bike Appeal is an appeal aimed at donating bicycles to children who live far away from school.

 

At the end of the 10 week school term, it is estimated that Lennon will have walked 38km.

 

Lennon is a remarkable young person who has also previously sold his toys online which raised $300 to go towards the Kmart wishing tree.

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Commemorate Lennon Maher for his pledge to raise money for the ChildFund Australia Dream Bike Appeal and his methods of raising the funds.

 

2.    Donate $1000 towards Lennon Maher’s pledge to raise money for the ChildFund Australia Dream Bike Appeal.

Mayoral Minute

SUBJECT: Moorebank Intermodal Terminal

 

On the 3rd June 2015, the Federal Government’s Moorebank Intermodal Company (MIC) signed an agreement with the Sydney Intermodal Terminal Alliance (SIMTA) for the development of the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal.

The agreement will see SIMTA develop and operate the intermodal freight terminal and warehousing across both Commonwealth and SIMTA-owned land at Moorebank, with direct rail access to Port Botany via the Southern Sydney Freight Line. The current parallel MIC and SIMTA proposals will now combine into a single development.   The facility is being designed to handle up to 1.5 million containers a year in total, comprised of an import-export terminal to handle up to 1.05 million containers a year plus a separate interstate terminal that will ultimately have capacity for up to 500,000 containers a year. However, in media coverage there has been discussion about ‘2 million’ containers.  The proposed warehousing to support the terminal is currently 600,000 m2, however there has been discussion about this increasing to 800,000 m2, together with suggestions by the MIC CEO that there should be no ‘cap’ on the terminal operations.

The SIMTA EIS together with the MIC response to submissions made on their earlier EIS are currently on exhibition until 26 June 2015.  Council encourages members of the community to make submissions on the proposal, and has engaged a consultant to prepare a detailed submission on behalf of Council.

The intermodal terminal proposed for Moorebank will significantly impact the Liverpool area and expose the local members of the community to significant traffic, air quality and noise impacts and potential health risks. The development of the intermodal threatens the quality and life of local residents and impedes the orderly land use planning for Moorebank. This development conflicts with Council’s and the community’s vision for the river as a residential lifestyle precinct taking advantage of all the amenity and recreational opportunities that a riverside location offers.   With the relocation of the Defence operations, the site offers tremendous potential for the regeneration of Moorebank as a mixed use precinct.

 

The proposed intermodal site provides real opportunities for alternative development offering a mix of housing and jobs in line with Council’s vision for Moorebank as an urban renewal area that offers a quality of life, environmental amenity and sustainably planned land uses.  Council is currently undertaking master planning of the Georges River precinct north of the M5 to deliver this vision and already one landowner has lodged significant planning proposal to progress the transformation of industrial land into a premium residential environment.  

 

The proposed intermodal puts Council’s vision in jeopardy.  Some of the adverse impacts of the intermodal terminal operation will include:

 

 

·         Increased congestion on the local road network,

·         Increased heavy vehicle movements on local roads - 10,000 extra trucks a day,

·         Increased pollution from diesel particulates,

·         Increased noise and visual impacts from the 24 hour operation of the site – 42 freight trains a day, and

·         Lost opportunity to develop the site sustainably to provide a mix of housing and employment.

 

Council recognises that Sydney’s growth requires more intermodal facilities and supports the need for a new intermodal, but not in this location.  The Badgerys Creek airport presents a real opportunity to rethink this decision and plan for the intermodal next to the new airport in a purpose built site ideally located next to an international airport and transport infrastructure, without the negative impacts on the local community that the Moorebank proposal will represent.  These impacts at Moorebank cannot be effectively mitigated.

 

Council’s continuing campaign against the development of the Moorebank intermodal includes the following current and proposed actions:

 

·         Preparation of a formal submission on current exhibition of the SIMTA EIS;

·         Proposed placement of billboard messages at the M5/Moorebank overpass and the Whitlam Centre on Hume Highway;

·         A community information and feedback campaign on Liverpool Listens;

·         A social media campaign on Facebook,

·         Encouraging residents to make submissions during the current exhibition of the SIMTA EIS;

·         A proposed mail out to Liverpool households in the most affected areas; and

·         Media opportunities, including print, radio, and television.  (Note half page ads ran in local papers today 17 June 2015).

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Writes to State and Federal representatives and relevant ministers making clear Council’s concerns about the adverse impacts of an intermodal at Moorebank, particularly on the local road network and local residents.

 

2.    Seeks further opportunities to engage directly with State and Federal Ministers on the proposed intermodal.

 

3.    Continues to pursue all avenues of communication to publicise Council’s opposition to the intermodal, and to encourage the public to voice their concerns.

 

4.    Approves the proposed mail-out and placement of billboard messages at an estimated cost of $60,000 to be funded from the approved no intermodal funds in the 2015/16 budget.

Mayoral Minute

 

SUBJECT: Hazel Bradshaw Park & Tharawal Park

 

Council recently identified parcels of community land that may have been considered suitable for potential reclassification and alternative uses. To date, Council has not made any final decisions and is undertaking a consultative approach before a decision is made on the parcels of community land.

 

Small pocket parks can cost more to maintain and tend to be less well used than larger parks. Other matters which are seen as problematic are issues such as loitering, noise and rubbish.

 

Over the last two weeks, there has been a strong response from the community in relation to two of the pocket parks identified. The communities surrounding Hazel Bradshaw Park on Deerwood Avenue and Tharawal Park on Anjudy Close, Casula have made it very clear how much they value those spaces and are strongly opposed to any part or full reclassification of those spaces for alternative uses.

 

On the basis of the input provided by the two communities and the strong message conveyed, I am recommending that Hazel Bradshaw Park and Tharawal Park shall remain as community parks also referred to as pocket parks. 

 

Another clear message that was heard was that previously our residents enjoyed the park equipment that was located at those parks. Council should also make plans for upgrading the parks and installing play equipment in Hazel Bradshaw Park and Tharawal Park. 

 

In addition to the contents of the Mayoral Minute, Council is to examine and report on the feasibility of removing Hannan Park, 12A Brian Avenue Casula and McCarty Park, 124A Wonga Road, Lurnea from the list of parcels of community land currently under consideration

 

RECOMMENDATION:

 

That Council:

 

1.    Removes Hazel Bradshaw Park, Deerwood Avenue from the list of community land being considered for potential reclassification and alternative uses and remain as a park for the enjoyment of the community.

 

2.    Removes Tharawal Park, Anjudy Close, Casula from the list of community land being considered for potential reclassification and alternative uses, and remain as a park for the enjoyment of the community.

 

 

3.    Makes plans for upgrading and installing park equipment in Hazel Bradshaw Park and Tharawal Park after community consultation.

 

4.    Consults with the community prior to any future Gateway applications on pocket parks.

 

5.    Considers multilingual communications when consulting with the community in relation to pocket park reclassifications.

 

6.    Considers and reports to a briefing session on removing Hannan Park and McCarty Park from the list of parcels of community land currently under consideration.

4.    Includes the following reasons for this decision in the above correspondence:

 

4.1   The adverse economic impact of the proposal on the existing local centre at Prestons Village may threaten the viability of the centre.  

 

4.2   The adverse economic impact of the proposal on the future Edmondson Park Town Centre may delay the development of the site and impact the overall development of Edmondson Park.

 

4.3   There is appropriately zoned land available at both Carnes Hill and Edmondson Park where a supermarket would be better situated.

 

4.4   It is considered the local community has adequate access to existing and future full line supermarkets, including Carnes Hill, Edmondson Park and Casula.

 

4.5   The proposal is out-of-centre development which, if approved, would have the potential to undermine achievement of the Council’s and the State’s planning strategies.

 

4.6   Approval of this centre in such close proximity to an established centre is contrary to good planning principles.

 

4.7   The proponent's Economic Impact Assessment understates the Primary Trade Area, the level of trading and the impacts of the proposed centre.

 

4.8   The existing proposal goes against our retail hierarchy.

 

On being put to the meeting the motion was declared CARRIED.

 

Councillors voted unanimously for this motion.

3.   In accordance with Section 178(4) of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, note the following reasons for entering into negotiations and not calling fresh tenders:

a)      The public tender process has been unable to elicit a satisfactory outcome and it is considered that inviting fresh tenders for the same proposal is unlikely to result in a different outcome;

b)      No significant benefit will be achieved by inviting fresh tenders in view of the time and cost involved in such a process with consequent delays and cost implications to the project; and

c)      Council’s own enquiries suggest that other feasible options exist, which would enable council to procure the required granite pavers for the timely delivery of the project.

 

4.   Notes that Council authorises the Chief Executive Officer to negotiate and subject to a satisfactory outcome of the negotiation process sign the Letter of Acceptance giving it contractual effect, in accordance with delegated authority.
