5.   The design of the proposed development will not provide an acceptable level of amenity to the future occupants of the boarding house and is likely to result in an adverse impact on the acoustic and visual privacy of the residents of the dwellings to the east and south of the land, pursuant to the provisions of Section 79C(1)(b) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

Questions with Notice

ITEM NO:       QWN 01

FILE NO:        165895.2017

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Harle

 

These questions relate to the current state of the Liverpool CBD.

Visitors to the Liverpool CBD area have expressed concern at the rapidly increasing amounts of black chewing gum ingrained on the pavement including the recently refurbished Mall.

The current state of the pavements detracts from the efforts of Council Staff to maintain areas free from litter. It is also disappointing to see that people are not using rubbish bins within a few metres of where they leave their litter behind.

Please address the following:

·         Is Council aware of the increasing amounts of Chewing Gum in the CBD in general and particularly in the Mall?

·         Has Council abandoned the use of the Special Purpose Chewing Gum Removal Machine purchased at substantial cost of around $80,000?

·         Has Council considered the use of weekend Corrective Services Detention offenders to remove the chewing gum from pavement surfaces in the CBD as proposed some time ago?

·         Does Council have a plan on addressing this issue and littering in the CBD and Mall areas in general?

·         Is it possible to display appropriate warning signs that include the scheduled fines in appropriate areas within the CBD?

·         Has Council considered fining offenders as per the current applicable scheduled fines?

General littering

Littering is subject to a tiered range of fines under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997:

  • $80 for littering small items, such as bottle tops and cigarette butts

·         $250 for general littering,

·         $250 for an individual littering from a vehicle ($500 for corporations)

·         $450 for littering in dangerous circumstances, such as depositing a syringe or a lit cigarette ($900 for corporations).

More information here: http://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/regulations/2014-564.pdf

A response to these questions will be provided in the July 2017 Business Papers.
