MAYORAL MINUTE

ITEM NO:            MAYOR 01

SUBJECT:         Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP) matters determined by Council

REPORT OF:     Mayor Wendy Waller

 

Council’s Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP) has played, and continues to play, an important role in our planning process. Liverpool City Council has led the NSW Local Government sector in the establishment and utilisation of IHAP. Over the past 20 years, Council has won awards for IHAP and the process improvements it has triggered.

 

Currently Council has a policy which determines when IHAP matters come to the elected representatives of Council for a final decision. This generally requires a number of Councillors to raise a concern and call the matter forward.

 

Councillors form the bridge between the community and council.  As a consequence, councillors can because of their very role add to the merits debate regarding a development issue because of their relationship with the community and the history of a particular development and issues raised within the community itself. I am very conscious some Councillors regularly attend IHAP meetings.

 

To ensure all Councillors are appropriately engaged in the decision-making process associated with the important development matters coming before IHAP for review, I am moving that all IHAP matters, following review and consideration by IHAP, be brought before the Council as an agenda item for determination.

 

I believe this will improve the information flow between Councillors, the Community, Staff and IHAP, ensuring ongoing transparency and a more robust decision-making process.

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council:

 

1.    Amend existing policies as required in order to mandate that any development issue coming before Council’s Independent Hearing and Assessment Panel (IHAP) for review be referred to Council for a final determination.

 

2.    Revoke the delegation to the CEO to determine any planning matter that has been the subject of a review by IHAP.

 

3.    Direct the CEO to ensure that information on IHAP meetings and instructions on how to engage with IHAP be included in all written notification material sent to ratepayers.

2.         Revoke the delegation to the CEO to determine any planning matter that has been the subject of a review by IHAP;

3.         Direct the CEO to ensure that information on IHAP meetings and instructions on how to engage with IHAP be included in all written notification material sent to ratepayers; and

4.         Review this policy in 24 months time.

SUBJECT:     DA-104/2016 - Demolition of two dwellings and construction of a multi-dwelling housing development at 13 Maxwells Avenue and 4 Devlin Street, Ashcroft

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That Council refuse Development Application DA-104/2016 for the following reasons;

 

1.   The development is inconsistent with Part 5(a)(ii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The proposed development results in the isolation of the adjoining site and is therefore not orderly development of land;

 

2.   The development is inconsistent with the zoning objectives of the R3 Medium Density zone in the Liverpool Local Environmental Plan 2008 (LLEP 2008). The development will not ensure a high level of residential amenity is maintained due to potential site isolation. Therefore, the objective regarding residential amenity within the R3 Medium Density zone cannot be achieved, pursuant to Sections 79C(1)(a)(i), 79C(1)(a)(iii) 79C(1)(b) and 79C(1)(c) of the Environmental Planning  & Assessment Act 1979 (EP & A Act 1979);

 

3.   The development does not comply with Part 3.6, Section 2 (Subdivision, Frontage and Lot Size) of the LDCP 2008, which stipulates for developments proposed under Section 4 of Part 3.6 a minimum lot width of 18m is required. The proposal does not provide the minimum 18m lot width required for multi-dwelling housing pursuant to Sections 79C(1)(a)(iii), 79C(1)(b), 79C(1)(c) and 79C(1)(d) of the EP & A Act 1979;

 

4.   The subject site is not considered suitable for the development, pursuant to Section 79C(1)(c); and

 

5.   Due to the above reasons, approval of the application is not in the public interest pursuant to Section 79C(1)(e) of the EP & A Act 1979.

Questions with Notice

 

ITEM NO:       QWN 01

FILE NO:        192743.2017

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?

 

Chewing gum removal has been a problem encountered in the CBD for many years. No data is available on the actual number of pieces encountered. A range of techniques is required for different surfaces and for different seasons. Removal of gum from the recently installed granite paving requires specialist commercial grade high pressure systems which use vehicle mounted equipment to totally remove gum quickly with no gum residue. The new equipment will be more mobile around the CBD for rapid response intense cleaning and will be operational by September.

 

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

 

The machine was ineffective in removing gum in an efficient and timely manner and has been sold. The main issues of inefficiency included repeated mechanical failures of the steamer and time consuming removal of gum at a high cost per square meter.

 

·         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?

 

A trial of manual gum removal using community service offenders with hand equipment is under way has so far been very effective on brick paver surfaces in the winter season when the gum consistency is very firm and easy to remove. This work has been very successful and will be continued while the resources are available. These techniques are not suitable for general use on the new granite pavers which are protected by a seal which should not be disturbed by manual equipment.

 

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

 

The state-wide Tosser blitz is currently underway and is managed by EPA NSW. Council is participating in all aspects of the campaign.

 

In addition, Council’s two street sweepers operate a double shift between 4:00am and 11:30pm Monday to Friday, and 4:00am till 11:30am on weekends. The streets and footpaths within the CBD are swept and dedicated CBD cleaners patrol and clean the CBD on a daily basis.

 

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

 

Signs can be displayed warning littering is an offence and subject to heavy fines. The schedule of fines does change with time so it is recommended that the schedule not be included on the signage.

 

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

 

For a Ranger to issue a fine the name and address of the offender needs to be obtained and this is generally difficult as most people will refuse to provide their details. It is suggested that an education program be considered in consultation with Council’s communication team to assist in reinforcing any regulatory signage.


 

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

 

 

 

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadid                 Seconded: Clr Rhodes

 

That Council:

 

1.    Form a CBD committee of stakeholders to collaborate on the issues in the CBD and to work with Council to assist in the CBD’s operational success as a commercial centre;

 

2.    Establish a Charter for this Committee; and

 

3.    Establish a recruitment process through expressions of interest for membership to this Committee. 

 

 

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

ITEM NO:       QWN 02

FILE NO:        193286.2017

SUBJECT:     Question with Notice - Clr Hagarty

 

Over the last 4 to 5 years the Liverpool skyline has been transformed through the construction of numerous high rise apartment buildings.

 

With the recent Grenfell tragedy in London there have been media reports of Council investigating "as a matter of priority" local high rise buildings to check if any contained ­unsafe cladding similar to that used in the Grenfell building.

 

I note a recent story from the Sydney Morning Herald "NSW government fails to act on proposed building industry reforms for almost two years" dated 27 June 2017.  The story details other fire safety issues in addition to unsafe cladding uncovered in apartment complexes across the state, similar in age and scale to those in Liverpool. The issues, mainly related to poor quality private certification, include fire hydrants being installed backwards, poorly maintained fire hose reels and faulty fire escape doors.

 

Please address the following:

 

  • On the progress of these checks?

·         When these checks are expected to be completed?

·         Do these checks also include inspection of other fire safety measures such as those mentioned above?

·         Of the budgetary impacts these checks will have?

·         What changes have been or will be put in place to ensure these retrospective checks need not occur in the future?

 

 

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

PRESENTATIONS BY COUNCILLORS – Clr Rhodes

 

Councillor Rhodes made a presentation to Council on the 75th Anniversary of the death of Lieutenant Cantello ceremony held on the 8th June at the Lieutenant Cantello Park.

 

Clr Rhodes’s presentation is shown below:

 

I have been asked to relay John Jewel, Garry Traynor and the community thanks to Council for their organising of the 75 Anniversary of the death of Lieutenant Cantello Ceremony on the 8th June at the Lieutenant Cantello Park.

 

Liverpool Council assistance to recognise Lieutenant Cantello's sacrifice on that fateful day when Sydney was under attack by Japanese mini  submarines, not only contributes enormously to honouring the only American pilot to have lost his life on Australian soil whilst defending this country but also to recognising and appreciating the significance of Liverpool history.

 

The council effort at such short notice and exasperated by communication difficulties that Kuttabul Commemoration Project Manager, Gary Traynor who comes from the far South Coast had in establishing the contacts necessary to organise this event, is to be commended.

 

I have been asked to thank Council and in particular the efforts of Dr Eddie Jackson and his team for not only the organising of the infrastructure to ensure the running of the event was a success, but also contacted the various Heritage groups, RSL, MP's, Mayors, Councillors and media to advise them of this event.

 

I have been asked to mention the extraordinary efforts of Council employee Alyson Infanti, who went above and beyond the call of duty, despite not being well, and having to organise so much in such little time and with such little warning.

 

They are saddened to hear of health issues that Alyson has since suffered and have asked that their well wishes for a speedy full recovery be extended to her on their behalf.

 

Gary Traynor said that he has never had such Council assistance as that which was extended to him on this occasion.

 

Since being made aware of Council's policies and procedures in instrumenting these events they also feel that they are grateful for the knowledge and future expectations of not only this Council's requirements, but also are now more aware for their future endeavours in organising similar events even perhaps in other places.

 

On behalf of Garry Traynor, John Jewel, and those concerned from the community of Liverpool I extend their thanks and gratitude for Council's assistance in the commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of Lieutenant George Cantello's death”.

Notices of Motion

 

ITEM NO:       NOM 01

FILE NO:        192676.2017

SUBJECT:     Problem Gambling

 

 

BACKGROUND

 

In 2010, a Productivity Commission Report highlighted the link between regular use of electronic gaming or poker machines (EGMs) and high problem gambling prevalence rates.

 

Problem gambling has been found to have the following impacts:

·         financial harm

·         relationship breakdown, conflict or disruption

·         emotional of psychological distress

·         deconditioning of health

·         cultural harm

·         reduced performance at work/study

·         criminal activity

For every person that experiences harm from problem gambling, approximately 5-10 others are impacted, including children. This does not consider full-lifetime impacts of gambling harm or the impacts of less severe problem gambling (Department of Social Services, 2017). 

 

The availability of gambling machines in the community, also called accessibility, is often linked to problem gambling (Vasiliadis et al, 2013). The Liverpool Local Government Area (LGA) ranks in the top 10 LGAs of losses per poker machine, with each machine causing approximately $87,305 (Alliance for Gambling Reform, 2017).

 

At the moment, the views of local communities and local governments are routinely ignored when it comes to the placement of poker machines. Local government should have the ability to meaningfully represent residents and have a genuine say on where poker machines are to be located.

 

In late 2016, following an extended community and legal campaign by local residents and Liverpool Council, the Land and Environment Court rejected a proposal for a pub in Casula with fifteen poker machine licences due to the risk of adverse social impacts that it would have on the area. This is despite the existing Gaming Machines Act requiring that no new venue should be located close to a school. Therefore, what should have been a straightforward case for the application to be denied if the Act was being followed required significant community and Council resources to be expended to fight for a fair and logical outcome.

 

Recently, the NSW Government invited submissions in response to a review of the rules for determining applications to introduce extra poker machines into an area, known as the Local Impact Assessment (LIA) process. Fairfield Council’s submission called for the NSW Government to ban approval of any more machines in areas with high risk of gambling-related harm.

NOTICE OF MOTION (Submitted by Clr Kaliyanda)

 

That:

 

1.   The CEO write to Liquor and Gaming NSW to advocate for local governments to have a greater say in the placement of poker machines;

 

2.   Council also publicly advocate for a cap on the number of poker machines in areas with high risk of gambling-related harm;

 

3.   Council reflect this position when reviewing and making comment on liquor license and gaming machine applications as per section 6.4.2 of the Social Impact Assessment Policy; and

 

4.   Council staff provide Councillors with regular reporting on the number of poker machines in the LGA, in line with section 6.4.5 of the Social Impact Assessment Policy.

ITEM NO:       NOM 02

FILE NO:        192707.2017

SUBJECT:     Multi-faith Council Prayer

 

BACKGROUND

 

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) recently released preliminary data from the 2016 census. Data for the Local Government Area revealed that Liverpool is more multicultural, multi-faith and religious than the nation as a whole.

 

Liverpool has large populations of residents with Iraqi, Vietnamese, Indian, Fijian and Lebanese origins of birth relative to the rest of Australia, reflecting large Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist religious affiliation. Liverpool is also home to one of the largest Mandaen communities outside of its original homeland.

 

Since the passing of a Notion of Motion in 2010, Council invites the Ministers Fraternal to conduct prayers of Council at the opening of each Council meeting.

 

This motion seeks to clarify and expand the previous 2010 motion and explicitly open an invitation to members of all faiths and religious denominations to conduct the Acknowledgement of Country and Prayer of Council, thereby reflecting Liverpool's diverse, multicultural and multi-faith population.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (Submitted by Clr Hagarty)

 

That Council directs the CEO (or their delegate) to:

 

·    Invite an ordained or similarly qualified member of one of Liverpool's many faiths and religious denominations to conduct the Acknowledgement of Country and Prayer at each Council meeting;

 

·    Develop an appropriate standard wording for an Acknowledgement of Country and Prayer to be given at the beginning of each Council meeting; and

 

·    Ensure, where practical and reasonable, a diverse range of faiths and religions are represented.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That Council receives and notes the CEO comments to the Notice of Motion (as shown below).

 

 

 

Foreshadowed motion:       Moved: Clr Hagarty             Seconded: Clr Shelton

 

That Council directs the CEO (or their delegate) to:

 

·    Invite an ordained or similarly qualified member of one of Liverpool's many faiths and religious denominations to conduct the Acknowledgement of Country and Prayer at each Council meeting; and

 

·    Ensure, where practical and reasonable, a diverse range of faiths and religions are represented.

 

On being put the meeting the Motion (moved by Clr Hadchiti) was declared CARRIED. The Foreshadowed motion (moved by Clr Hagarty) therefore lapsed.

 

Chief Executive Officer’s comment to Notice of Motion:

 

The matter was last considered by Council at the 18/10/10 Council meeting.

 

At that meeting Council resolved;

 

That Council:

 

1.    Invites the Ministers Fraternal to conduct their own prayers of Council at the Council meetings without any suggestions of the wording by the Council.

 

2.    Notifies the Ministers Fraternal on Council’s decision.

 

The Minister’s fraternal is a network of ministers, pastors and church leaders in the Liverpool area.

 

Father John Keane from the West Hoxton Community Church assists in co-ordinating a roster for the reading of the Prayer.

 

If the motion is adopted, Council staff will extend the invitation to a more diverse range of faiths and religions representative of our population.
