CONDOLENCES        

 

Aunty Nancy Davis (read by Mayor Mannoun)

 

On Sunday 28th February the people of Liverpool lost one of our dearly loved Aboriginal elders, Aunty Nancy Davis. Aunty Nancy was a spirited member of our community and was frequently there to provide her insight and aid to our reconciliation and other indigenous programs.

 

Being taken away from her parents when she was 6 years old, Aunty Nancy was a key link to the terrible times of the Stolen Generations. As Australia moved towards reconciliation she took up the opportunities to ensure that the Gandangara people of Liverpool were included in this historic movement. Aunty Nancy was frequently on hand to perform ceremonial duties at council functions such as the welcome to country and other such roles.

 

She will always hold a special place in the hearts of council staff who knew her and members of our indigenous community. As Councillors we mourn for her and send our best wishes to her family.

 

Aunty Nancy Davis and Aunty Betty Young (read by Clr Waller)

 

It is with deep regret I inform the chambers of the passing of Local Aboriginal Elders Aunty Nancy Davis and Aunty Betty Young.

 

Nancy Davis was a local Elder since the 1980s. “Aunty Nancy” as she was known in the community, was an active member of the local Aboriginal Land Council “Gandangara” and Liverpool Catholic Club. As a registered nurse, Aunty Nancy was well respected within her industry and was a frequent guest speaker at university lectures, inspiring future leaders. In retirement Aunty Nancy became heavily involved in advocating for Aboriginal rights and human rights.  She volunteered her time to conduct Acknowledgements to Country in the local community, particularly for events and special occasions.

 

Betty Young was a local Aboriginal Elder. “Aunty Betty” as she was known in the community, was an active member of the Hoxton Park Elders Group. She volunteered her time at local community events and special occasions.  Aunty Betty was involved in advocating for Aboriginal rights and human rights all her life.

 

To family, friends and colleagues of Nancy and Betty, who were known as a kind, honest and respectful individuals, dedicated to their family and passionate about everything they did, I’m sure they will be deeply missed. Our thoughts are with their family at this difficult time.

 

Motion:                         Moved: Mayor Mannoun     Seconded: Clr Waller

 

That Council send a letter of condolence to Nancy Davis’ and Betty Young’s surviving family members.  

 

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

SUBJECT:     WSROC Delegates

 

NOTICE OF MOTION

 

That Council:

 

1.    Review the current WSROC delegates with the following actions to consider:

 

a) termination of current delegates

b) increasing the number of delegates

c) calling on nominations for new delegates

 

2.    Writes to WSROC informing them of any changes to the delegates that Council has voted on

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Balloot

 

That Council notes:

 

1.      WSROC membership is $68,000 + GST per year.

 

2.      WSROC is made up of 10 Western Sydney Councils.

 

3.      WSROC is a company limited by Guarantee, with 2 representatives from each of its member councils, as elected by that council, forming the board of 20 directors.

 

4.      An increase in delegates from Liverpool is currently not permissible unless a change is made to the WSROC constitution which would have to be agreed on by the majority of the board members.

 

5.      Some of the recent financial benefits to Liverpool City Council rate payers include but not limited to:

 

a.      A saving of $888,000 through joint contracts during 13/14 and 14/15 financial years.

b.      A saving of over 19,640 tonnes of CO2 emissions and $5.8 million in energy costs over 20 years as a result of WSROC’s Light Years Ahead project.

c.      Regional waste programs which WSROC has generated $3.7 million in grant funding (over the 3 year duration of the waste strategy).

d.      An approximate saving of over $250k due to its participation in a joint EIS review for Badgery’s Creek Airport.

e.      For the past two financial years for an outlay of $314K and $233K respectively, Liverpool has saved itself the cost of sending recyclable materials directly to landfill - $655K and $480K respectively.  Not only is this a great environmental initiative, but also a social one as Soft Landings employs people on the margin of society and those with disabilities in fulfilling their role under this contract.

 

6.      Clr Hadchiti has been a WSROC Board member since being elected to Council in September 2008 with the second delegate rotating each of those years.

 

7.      Clr Hadchiti has served as Jnr VP, Snr VP and is currently serving as President since October 2012.

 

8.      Some of the benefits of having the President from Liverpool include:

 

a.      During 2015, generated 68 media articles with reference to Liverpool-related issues with an estimated reach of 34,896,511 readership.

b.      A seat at the table with Ministers and MP’s both at a Federal & State level from across the political divide.

c.      The opportunity to ensure that Liverpool related issues are at the forefront of any discussions including:

                          i.          Badgerys Creek airport development (transport, EIS, employment and housing).

                         ii.          Better connectivity for Liverpool as a regional city.

                        iii.          Meetings with Government to reconsider Moorebank Intermodal & the Moorebank recycling plant.

                        iv.          Timely infrastructure delivery for the South West Growth Centre.

                         v.          Improved transport links – particularly along the north-south corridor.

 

Foreshadowed motion:       Moved: Clr Mamone            Seconded:  Clr Ristevski

 

That:

 

1.    A further report come back to Council in April 2016 to review WSROC delegates with the following actions to consider:

 

a)      termination of current delegates

b)      increasing the number of delegates

c)      calling on nominations for new delegates

 

2.      The further report to include the history of the delegates of WSROC including the gender of past delegates.

 

3.      The report to outline how delegates will be appointed and whether a secret ballot should be used.

 

4.      A report to be brought to Council to outline the achievements of WSROC and other external committees.

 

5.      A report be provided to Council by June 2016 with a review of the Councillor representatives on Council’s Committees so that the same gender ratio exists on Committees as per Councillors on Council.

6.   Ensures the Mayor's photo is not used on Council invitations or any publication.

 

7.   Mayoral Minutes adhere to the OLG Practice Note 16 dated August 2009. An extract of the relevant clause of the practice note is included below:

 

2.7 Mayoral Minutes

 

2.7.1 What is a mayoral minute?

 

The mayor may put to a meeting (without notice) any matter which the council is allowed to deal with or which the council officially knows about (cl.243(1) of the Regulation). This would cover any council function under the Act or other legislation, or any matter that has been brought to the council’s attention, for example, by letter to the mayor or the general manager.

 

This power to make mayoral minutes recognises the special role of the mayor. A mayoral minute overrides all business on the agenda for the meeting, and the mayor may move that the minute be adopted without the motion being seconded.

 

Mayoral minutes should not be used to introduce, without notice, matters that are routine, not urgent, or need research or a lot of consideration by the councillors before coming to a decision. These types of matters would be better placed on the agenda, with the usual period of notice being given to the councillors.

 

2.7.2 Can mayoral minutes be introduced at council committee meetings?

 

A council committee consisting entirely of councillors must run its meetings as set out in the Meeting Code (s.360(3) of the Act). Each council committee can decide on its own procedure (cl.265 of the Regulation) and these could be adopted in the Meeting Code. This includes procedures on mayoral minutes.

 

2.7.3 Can a mayoral minute be amended?

 

While not addressed in the Regulation, mayoral minutes may be altered in practice. This could be covered in council’s Meeting Code. Changes to mayoral minutes should avoid making changes that will introduce, without notice, matters which need research or a lot of consideration by the councillors before coming to a decision.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Balloot

 

That this item be deferred for further discussion at a briefing session and a properly worded motion be brought back to Council.

 

Foreshadowed Motion:       Moved: Clr Ristevski           Seconded: Clr Harle

 

That Council:

 

1.    Media statements can only be made by the Mayor ONLY after a resolution of Council.

 

2.    Replace the Deputy Mayoral column in the newspapers with a Councillors column for Council and Community events with each Councillor providing a column on a rotational basis. 

 

3.    Replace the "Mayoral mobile office" with the "Mayor and Councillors mobile office" removing the words "Ned Mannoun".

 

4.    Replace the Mayors message in the monthly Newsletter with a Councillors message featuring a story from each Councillor.

 

5.    Change all Invitations to the community to be from "Liverpool City Councillors" removing the words "Mayor Ned Mannoun" including those made on social media, via random phone calls and/or surveys to households, letters to households, posters, formal invitations, radio commercials and any other means that Council invites the community to any event.

 

6.    Ensures the Mayor's photo is not used on Council invitations or any publication instead a group photo of all Councillors be used.

Questions with Notice

 

ITEM NO:       QWN 01

FILE NO:        046443.2016

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Stanley

 

Please address the following:

 

Kurrajong Road, Prestons

 

1.      Can I be advised when the last traffic management study was done for Kurrajong Road?

 

In 2015 Council engaged a consultant to review traffic management around Carnes Hill Shopping Centre.  A draft report has been received and comments on the draft report have been provided with the final report yet to be received.

2.      Since the expending of the link between Prestons and Carnes Hill the traffic has increased the right hand turn to Cowpasture Road, there is concerning traffic behaviour due to frustration at the right turn from Kurrajong Road to the Carnes Hill Shopping Centre. Also the intersection at the roundabout at Kurrajong Road and San Merino Drive is causing traffic to back up in both directions.

 

Council has recently engaged Transport and Traffic Planning Associates to undertake a review of the existing traffic signals at the Cowpasture Road and Kurrajong Road intersection.  Council has organised intersection traffic counts to assist with the traffic signal review.

 

3.      Are there future plans to address this?

 

Future plans will be based on the final outcome of both studies.

 


Heritage Properties in private ownership

 

4.      I believe there are several properties listed as local heritage value in the current LLEP can I be advised how many?

 

There are approximately 132 listed heritage places within the Liverpool LGA as well as two conservation areas.  Most of these are locally listed items although 13 are also listed on the State Heritage Register.  We have one declared Aboriginal Place, the Collingwood Precinct.

 

Approximately 35% of these listed places are government owned.  The rest are religious organisations, private companies and individuals.

 

 

 

5.      What does Council do or can it do to retain these properties for the future?

 

Locally listed heritage places and conservation areas have statutory protection, i.e. it is an offense to demolish or alter a listed place without consent.  The approvals process is the way that Council manages change and facilitates appropriate conservation for the future.

 

In addition, Council provides a free advisory service so that owners of heritage places or property within conservation areas can seek advice about the best way to maintain or alter their property to conserve significance but achieve their requirements. 

 

6.      Is there any legal requirement for these properties to be retained for the future?

 

Once listed on the Liverpool local Environmental Plan 2008 (or other similar planning instruments), a place (being either built and/ or landscape elements) is afforded legal protection and consent is then required for demolition or alterations.  Whilst Clause 5.10 (Heritage Conservation) does not specifically state that demolition is not permissible, the objectives of the clause are to conserve.  In heritage conservation practice, demolition is not considered a means of conservation and is rarely, if ever, supported.

 

7.      When will a review be done of heritage properties in Liverpool and when will that report be presented to Council?

 

Council’s last review of heritage was 10 years ago.  As part of updating the comprehensive local environmental plan, a new heritage study will be undertaken.

 

The following question was asked by Clr Stanley while dealing with this item, during the Council meeting:

 

8.    Can Council be provided with timelines for the future plans that are to be developed as a result of the traffic studies referred to in point 3 of this Question With Notice.

3.      A request has been made by some of our youth for the possibility of building a skate park in the Casula area.

Can I be informed of any issues, besides budget constraints, of constructing a skate park on the Southern side of Jardine Park along Old Kurrajong Rd.?

 

4.      There is some confusion relating to the name of Phillip Park in Lurnea.  At a recent community consultation meeting the granddaughter of Mr Phillip was present and stated that originally it was named Phillips Park.  Signs at the park state ‘Phillips Park’

Can the history of naming this park please be looked into?

Can the sign ‘Phillips Park’ that was originally located on the corner of Hill Road & Reilly St please be re installed?

 

5.      Moorebank Voluntary Acquisition Area

Has Council served any orders or proposed orders for the demolition of dwellings within that area?

If so:

1.      Has Council done its due diligence on whether these orders could have been served?

2.      Has council obtained any legal advice on the prospects of success if these matters were before the courts?

 

6.      Council was looking into changes to the LEP in relation to truck parking in rural areas.

Can an update please be provided on the progress?

 

 

 

 

7.      The traffic issues around Westfield’s seem to be not going away.

Is Westfield’s complying with their TMP?

What progress has been made with any discussions held with Westfield’s in relation to fixing the traffic issues around their centre now, not in the future?

Is Westfield’s complying with their DA?
