Mayoral Report

 

ITEM NO:      MAYOR 01

FILE NO:        138260.2016

SUBJECT:     Liverpool Domestic Violence Liaison Committee Concert

 

Liverpool Council is fully supporting this year’s White Ribbon Day campaign against domestic violence in our community. At last year’s White Ribbon Day March the Liverpool community and this council pledged their support to opposing domestic violence in any form.

 

The Liverpool Domestic Violence Liaison Committee has played an integral role in ensuring this important issue remains on the local agenda. To support its campaign the Committee is organising a community concert in December to raise awareness and help prevent domestic violence.

 

The Committee is asking council to honour its pledge to oppose domestic violence by helping support the concert for the community. The concert will help create a stronger and more peaceful community and offers the opportunity to re-inforce our message that domestic violence is never acceptable. I encourage all councillors to support this event as a demonstration of solidarity with the White Ribbon movement.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.   Sponsors the Liverpool Domestic Violence Liaison Committee’s concert scheduled for the 9th December for $5000.

 

2.   Promotes the event on social media.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 


 

ITEM NO:      MAYOR 02

FILE NO:        138286.2016

SUBJECT:     Welcome University of Wollongong

 

On Monday 2nd May Liverpool City Council welcomed the University of Wollongong to our city for what I’m confident will be a long and successful partnership in educating our local students.

 

The University’s decision to open a campus in Liverpool means an exciting future for generations of scholars to come.

 

The University also brings the prospect of creating new jobs, driving commerce and cutting travelling times for students who were travelling vast distances to complete their tertiary education.

 

When the new campus is built, students will have a world class university on their doorstep.

 

Hours lost in travelling to universities in other areas can now be used more productively for study or recreation.

 

The campus will create massive potential for growth in local education needs and also encourage business investment.

 

Businesses will want to establish themselves around Liverpool because that’s where the best graduates will be.

 

The new campus also re-inforces Liverpool’s status as the educational hub of the Great South West.

 

Liverpool already has some of the brightest and best students in the State. Now we will be able to keep that knowledge where it is most needed – in Liverpool.

 

The significance of the University’s arrival in Liverpool cannot be overstated.

 

I want to congratulate the hard work of council staff, including the former CEO Carl Wulff, the current acting CEO Michael Cullen and Director of Property and Commercial Development John Morgan for their dedication to achieving their goal of getting the University to Liverpool.

 

The arrival of the University of Wollongong is just the beginning of major identities in business and education looking at either re-locating to Liverpool or setting up subsidiaries here.

 

This achievement would never have seen fruition had council not invested back into Liverpool through the Building Our New City Program and the time taken to encourage business investment in the city.

 

The announcement of the new Wollongong University Campus builds on the investment of Western Sydney University and the confidence of new education facilities growing in the city centre.

 

Exciting changes are coming as Liverpool becomes increasingly relevant to Sydney’s future ambitions in the 21st Century.

 

This is the biggest development to Liverpool since Thomas Moore laid the grid work for the city in the 18 hundreds and will be one of the cultural and educational cornerstones of our new city.

 

To repeat the words of NSW Premier Mike Baird at the official launch of the new campus: “Liverpool’s time has come.”

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.   Congratulates all staff involved in organising the highly successful launch of the University’s arrival especially Acting CEO Michael Cullen, Director of Property and Commercial Development John Morgan and former CEO Carl Wulff.

 

2.   Thanks Premier Mike Baird and other dignitaries who attended the launch

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Mayor Mannoun

 

That the recommendation be adopted.

 

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

 


 

ITEM NO:      MAYOR 03

FILE NO:        138370.2016

SUBJECT:     Carl Casey

 

Liverpool Council has farewelled one of its longest serving and most valued employees after more than a quarter of a century of service.

 

Carl Casey has been working at council for 28 years now with diligence and professionalism in his role as a Subdivision Administrator with the Department of Planning and Growth.

 

He has chosen to retire after his long and very successful career and council wishes him every success for the future.

 

It is always disappointing to lose an individual with such first-hand experience and wealth of knowledge as Mr Casey has acquired in his years with Liverpool Council.

 

Even though we have talented people coming through council ranks under our strategic recruitment programs, replacing someone as dedicated and committed to his job for such a long time will not be easy.

 

Mr Casey leaves with our best wishes and our sincere thanks for his service over nearly three decades and the knowledge he has freely shared with his co-workers.

 

Mr Casey has also been acclaimed by many residents for the understanding and assistance he has offered in too many projects to mention. So I know the community joins this council in offering Mr Casey our sincere thanks for his role in making Liverpool the wonderful place it is to live.

 

As Mr Casey moves into the next chapter of life we hope he will remember fondly his time at council.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.   Congratulates and thanks Mr Carl Casey for his 28 years of service to the residents of Liverpool.

 

2.   Formally writes to Mr Casey expressing the gratitude of council and encloses a copy of this minute acknowledging his long service to the community.

ITEM NO:      MAYOR 04

FILE NO:        138472.2016

SUBJECT:     Go West Awards

 

The Daily Telegraph’s Go West Campaign has been a major supporter of putting Sydney’s Western suburbs back on to the map for development and investment.

 

The improvements and growth we have seen, not only in our own city, but in surrounding areas is a testament to the reach and success of this campaign.

 

On Friday 20th May we celebrated our “Champions of the West” with many luminaries of our area in attendance including former Australian Test Captain, Michael Clark.

 

I would like to acknowledge the success of our local individuals and organisations Dr Ken Silburn, from Casula High School, and Liverpool’s Street University team who both received awards on the night.

 

Dr Silburn was recognised for his exemplary effort encouraging more students to take part in maths and science through his ISTEM program and was given the prestigious “Champion of Champions People’s Choice Award”.

 

Liverpool’s Street University received acclaim for their co-ordination of the Street University Clothing organisation, teaching students skills in graphic design and manufacturing as well as getting their foot in the door for future business careers.

 

They received the Go West 2016 Start Up award.

 

Both Dr Silburn and the Street University were honoured by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and Premier of NSW Mike Baird all of whom came to support the opportunities Western Sydney has to offer.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.    Congratulates Dr Ken Silburn and the Liverpool Street University for their success at the Go West 2016 Awards Night

 

2.    Acknowledges the success and support that has been achieved by the Daily Telegraph’s Go West campaign.

Questions with Notice

 

ITEM NO:      QWN 01

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Stanley

 

Please address the following:

 

Can an update be provided on the Wests Tigers plans to move to the fields at Carnes Hill.

 

When is this likely to happen?

 

In July 2015, Wests Tigers had determined that Carnes Hill North was the preferred site for their proposed Centre of Excellence.


Wests Tigers and Liverpool City Council entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to progress the project.


In March 2016, Wests Tigers informed Council that their existing facilities, at Concord Oval, were now unaffected by WestConnex project and that they were now pursuing Concord Oval as the priority site for the proposed Centre of Excellence.


As a result of this decision, Wests Tigers requested terminating the MOU for a Centre of Excellence at Carnes Hill, while noting their willingness to continue a strategic relationship with Council.


Council is currently progressing with other recreational options for the Carnes Hill North site.

ITEM NO:      QWN 02

FILE NO:        099963.2016

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Shelton

 

Please address the following:

 

1.      What is currently the average interval of time to process an application for a certificate a. under s.149(2) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979, and b. an application for a certificate under s.149(5) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979. Please answer separately with respect to residential, commercial/industrial and rural property.    

 

The current May 2016 average for s149 (2) / (5) certificates is 4.5 days.

April 2016

 

Average 19.8 Days - The table on page 2 has a breakdown of the figures as requested.

 

2.      Please give the same figures for April of 2015.

 

Average 2.6 - The table on page 2 has a breakdown of the figures as requested.

 

3.      Please give the same figures for April of 2014.

 

Average 4.0 The table on page 2 has a breakdown of the figures as requested.

 

4.      Please give the same figures for April of 2013.

 

Average 7.8 The table on page 2 has a breakdown of the figures as requested.

 

5.      Please provide a qualitative description of changes in staffing levels for this function over the years identified.

 

The number of requests for s149 Certificates has increased substantially during the past 4 years. The Table 1 below

 

Historically this role has been performed by the same permanent s149 Officer, there has been no change in terms of permanent staffing levels during the stated period, however, Council engaged a temporary staff member in August 2015 due the substantial increase in requests for Certificates.

 

The function was assigned to a temporary staff member and relocated from the ground floor Customer Service Centre to the Level 4 due to a staffing issue in December 2015. The staffing issue was resolved in March 2016 and the temporary staff member was moved back to the Customer Service Centre in April 2016.

 

 

At that the point there was a significant backlog and both the Strategic Planning Department and the Alliance redirected considerable resources to ensure the outstanding Certificates were actioned as quickly as possible.

6.      Is the turnaroud time for such certificates a performance criteria, of any description, under the Propel terms of engagement. Also, having regard to the Propel terms of engagement is Council actually able to formally set goals for the turnaround of these certificates. These two question may be answered under confidential cover if considered appropriate.

 

This is not currently a performance criteria for Propel, the issuing of the certificates is not solely the responsibility of the Alliance; there is a requirement for input from the Strategic Planning department.

 

7.      Looking to the future what are the goals of Council generally as to the turnaround time for these certificates. Are these goals or will these goals be recorded in any written policy of Council, and if so please identify as much.

 

Business Improvement has introduced weekly monitoring of the lodgement and issuing of all s149 applications. Due to increasing the staffing resource, we are confident that in most cases they can be issued within 5 days.

 

There are some instances where due to the complexity of the information and the necessity for scrutiny, this may not be possible. There is now a KPI for Propel from May 2016 to achieve a 5 day turnaround for at least 95% of lodgements.

 

Additionally, it is useful to also consider the broader context regarding the increased demand for 149 certificates and the long term plans for further improvements. The number of applications for 149 certificates has significantly increased over recent years, and particularly in the last 12 months, as highlighted in the table below. This reflects the growth in population and housing development within the Liverpool LGA.  Existing Council resources have been inadequate to deal with this workload and additional resources have had to be dedicated to meet the increased demand.  New resources had to be trained to do this work and this contributed to the backlog. Additionally, a review of processes and property data accuracy was also undertaken.  This review identified the need for changes to procedures associated with the processing of certificates, as well as a comprehensive review of Council's property records to ensure data integrity and accuracy.  The approval process further contributed to the backlog, but it is essential to ensure that all certificates are accurate and reliable.   A temporary project officer position has been created to undertake the review of property data. Additionally administrative processes are being revised to improve efficiency and turnaround times.  All certificates are being equally prioritised and generally issued in order of lodgement except in complex cases. 

 

The backlog was cleared at the beginning of May and all certificates are now within the 5 day turnaround time.  Concurrent with the data review, process improvements are underway. The goal is to be able to implement on-line 24 hour turnarounds for most certificates within 12 months.
