Notices of Motion Of Rescission

 

ITEM NO:       NOMR 01

FILE NO:        226668.2017

SUBJECT:     Rescission of DPG 07 Draft Warwick Farm Precinct Strategy from the Council meeting of 26 July 2017

 

NOTICE OF MOTION OF RESCISSION

 

We the undersigned move a rescission motion, as per 38.1 of Council’s Code of Meeting Practice, to rescind Item DPG 07 Draft Warwick Farm Precinct Strategy (as shown below) that was passed at the Ordinary Council Meeting held on Wednesday 26 July 2017.

 

“That Council:

1.       Prepare a draft Warwick Farm Precinct Strategy which reflects a mixed use zoning (specifically for the horse racing precinct), with the input of councillors and residents.

2.       Endorse in principle the planning proposal for Lot 1 Governor Macquarie Drive, Warwick Farm, subject to the applicant submitting a modified proposal with a maximum floor space ratio (FSR) of 2.2:1 which equates to approximately 500 residential units of which 10% will be dedicated to retail.

3.       Delegates to the CEO the authority to finalise the modified proposal and submit to DPE for Gateway approval with a recommendation that detailed traffic and flood modelling be included in Gateway conditions.

4.       Notes that the CEO will finalise negotiations regarding the proposed VPA and public benefit offer and any other relevant conditions as required to support the proposal, with a report to be presented to a future Council meeting.

5.       Notes that funds will be sought in the Capital program in the 2017/18 budget to progress land acquisitions for the bypass road.”

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Clr Hadchiti raised a point of order relating to point 38.1 of Council’s Code of Meeting Practice (as shown below) and stated that the rescission motion should be ruled out of order as it did not include a proposed replacement motion.

 

“38.1 A rescission motion means a proposal under section 372 of the Act to either rescind or alter a previous resolution of Council. The rescission motion includes the proposal to rescind or alter and the proposed replacement motion.”

 

 

 

Mayor Waller stated that legal advice had been obtained and that the motion is legal and can be dealt with at this meeting. Section 372 of the Local Government Act 1993 (as shown below) transcends Council’s Code of Meeting Practice.

 

“Rescinding or altering resolutions

 

372 RESCINDING OR ALTERING RESOLUTIONS

 

(1)  A resolution passed by a council may not be altered or rescinded except by a motion to that effect of which notice has been duly given in accordance with regulations made under section 360 and, if applicable, the council’s code of meeting practice.

 

(2)  If notice of motion to rescind a resolution is given at the meeting at which the resolution is carried, the resolution must not be carried into effect until the motion of rescission has been dealt with.

 

(3)  If a motion has been negatived by a council, a motion having the same effect must not be considered unless notice of it has been duly given in accordance with the council’s code of meeting practice.

 

(4)  A notice of motion to alter or rescind a resolution, and a notice of motion which has the same effect as a motion which has been negatived by the council, must be signed by 3 councillors if less than 3 months has elapsed since the resolution was passed, or the motion was negatived, as the case may be.

 

(5)  If a motion to alter or rescind a resolution has been negatived, or if a motion which has the same effect as a previously negatived motion, is negatived, no similar motion may be brought forward within 3 months. This subsection may not be evaded by substituting a motion differently worded, but in principle the same.

 

(6)  A motion to which this section applies may be moved on the report of a committee of the council and any such report must be recorded in the minutes of the meeting of the council.

 

(7)  The provisions of this section concerning negatived motions do not apply to motions of adjournment.”

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Kaliyanda          Seconded: Clr Shelton

 

That the resolution relating to DPG 07 Draft Warwick Farm Precinct Strategy from the Council meeting 26 July 2017 be rescinded.

 

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

Questions with Notice

 

ITEM NO:       QWN 01

FILE NO:        205662.2017

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?

 

COUNCIL RESPONSE

 

In July 2015 Council’s newly appointed Manager Community Standards put a report to the Director and CEO for the creation of a Fire Safety Unit to meet Council’s obligation under the legislation with respect to Fire Safety.  The CEO approved the recommendation of the report which led to the following appointments:

 

·         Fire Safety Team Leader

·         2 x Fire Safety Officers

·         Essential Services Officer

 

Council’s obligation under the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act (EP&A Act) is to ensure minimum levels of fire safety are adequate across a diverse range of Class 2-9 buildings, these being residential apartment buildings, commercial and industrial buildings.

 

The workload in this area comes to Council in the form of complaints from the public, referral by NSW Fire and Rescue, referral from NSW Police and from within Council.  In response, Council Officers may audit buildings and issue orders to upgrade.  The officers will then carry out inspections to ensure the order is progressively being complied with. It will generally take over 12 months to complete work under a fire order, often at significant expense to building owners.

 

Clause 93 and 94 of Environment Planning and Assessment Regulation requires Council to consider fire safety compliance as part of a DA for any change of use or alterations.  This is currently carried out early in assessment of DAs with fire safety compliance upgrades required as a condition of development consent.

 

Every year property owners of buildings other than private single dwellings are required to submit an Annual Fire Safety Statement (AFSS) to Council which lists all the fire safety essential services within a building with assurances that these are being maintained.  Council’s Essential Services Officer provides annual reminders to owners to submit AFSS, with follow up letters and if required warning letters. A check of the adequacy of each statement is undertaken by Council officers.

 

The legislation aims to ensure that existing buildings are maintained and if required upgraded to ensure compliance with the changes in legislation in regards to fire safety.  This in turn places an obligation on Council to ensure existing buildings in the LGA meet fire safety requirements.

 

Building Regulation and Certification Reform

New reforms to improve fire safety will come into effect on 1 October 2017, aimed at improving certification process for high rise buildings.  The reforms will require mandatory involvement of competent fire safety practitioners in the design and approval of fire safety systems including new critical stage inspection for certifiers.

 

Safety Inspection of Cladding

Local Government NSW (LGNSW) have been briefing staff of various councils on their audit of combustible cladding on buildings across Sydney.

 

It is understood that LGNSW have identified buildings with potentially combustible cladding, including in the Liverpool Local Government Area and they will be writing to the building owners of those buildings to encourage them to inspect the cladding and installation.  Council will work with LGNSW and the building owners to ensure all buildings are made safe as a priority.

 

 

Council staff have commenced an audit of buildings in the CBD to identify use of potentially combustible cladding.  The buildings that are being audited are residential buildings (other than single dwellings) with a rise in storey of 3 or more.    It is expected that the audit will be completed by 31 December 2017.

 

Budgetary Impacts

Nil. Workloads in the fire safety team are now prioritised on this issue.  Resources are adequate at this stage.

 

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

As discussed above the legislation permits retrospective checks so that buildings can be upgraded in time if required to improve fire safety and keep up with changes in legislation in regard to safety standards and technology.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hagarty              Seconded: Clr Shelton

 

That Council make representations to the State Government, including the relevant Minister, to have the South West Bronto:

 

  • brought back online and based at either Liverpool or St Andrews Fire Station;
  • adequately and appropriately staffed with the requisite specialised crew; and
  • report back to Council on the outcomes of those representations

 

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

Notices of Motion

 

ITEM NO:       NOM 01

FILE NO:        226518.2017

SUBJECT:     Heathcote Rd and The Avenue Intersection

 

BACKGROUND

 

On 2 August 2017 the Voyager Point community lost a valued member in a tragic car accident that occurred at the intersection of The Avenue and Heathcote Road, Voyager Point.

 

The intersection in question has long been regarded by residents as a dangerous ‘blindspot’ due to a combination of factors including high traffic volume and speed through the intersection. Recent growth population of Voyager Point as only served to increase the risks at the intersection.

 

Following community concerns over the last two years, the RMS has identified the need for road widening of the section off Heathcote Road between Infantry Parade and The Avenue. In this financial year’s state budget funding has only been allocated for detailed design but not construction. The initial advice from the RMS is that the road widening may not be completed until 2022.

 

Voyager Point community members were asked “In the last two years, how often have you been involved in a near miss or incident at the intersection of The Avenue, Voyager Point & Heathcote Rd”.  Over the last 2 years the 57 respondents had been involved in 219 near misses or incidents at the intersection.  

 

Without immediate safety measures being implemented, the risk of further incidents is high.

Despite Heathcote Rd being an RMS controlled road, in the days following the accident, the Mayor, CEO and Council staff have advocated for the implementation of short term traffic treatments to improve safety at the intersection until the permanent upgrade can be completed in the days following the accident. These include:

 

-          Reduction of the speed limit at The Avenue and Heathcote Rd intersection from 80km/h to 60km/h.

 

-          Signalisation of the intersection, or installation of temporary traffic lights.

 

-          Installation of a speed camera or other speed monitoring system at the intersection to ensure reduction in the speed limit is maintained.

 

While I note and appreciate these actions, Heathcote Road is RMS controlled and the final authority on any improvement options or actions that can be implemented. Therefore, it is important for Council to continue to represent the interests and advocate for the safety of our residents.

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Kaliyanda)

ITEM NO:       NOM 02

FILE NO:        228270.2017

SUBJECT:     Intermodal

 

BACKGROUND

 

One of the biggest threats to liveability of our LGA is the proposed Intermodal.

 

Council for many years has spent considerable time and resources in articulating reasons why this proposal in the proposed location will have a negative impact.

 

At the March meeting of Council, Council chose not to pursue its own legal challenge and left it up to the community to take it on.

 

On Thursday August 17th a Section 34 Conciliation Hearing [EP&A Act] was conducted and unfortunately there was no resolution.  The matter will now be going to a full hearing in the Land and Environment Court.

 

The community has currently engaged the EDO to represent them legally, but given that it’s now going to a full hearing, more is needed and Council should be at the forefront defending the community against this proposal.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hadchiti)

 

That Council:

 

1.    Direct the CEO to engage a team of experts (internal & external) not limited to legal to work alongside the EDO in defending this matter in the L&E Court on any grounds necessary; and

 

2.    Direct the CEO to make necessary budget allocations.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That Council:

 

1.      Direct the CEO to offer both on-staff and, where practical, external experts to the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) for assistance in preparation of their court case at no charge.

 

2.      Notes RAID has benefited from $50,000 in direct financial support from Council as per a previous Council resolution.

 

3.      Allocate up to $50,000 to pay lawyers engaged in this matter, on the provision of invoices to Council.

 

4.      Place the all payments in this motion on public exhibition and report back to Council.

 

5.      Investigate the cost of point 1 of this motion.

 

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

 

 

Mayor Waller called a recess of Council at 8.54pm.

That Council: 

 

1.    Decline to accept any tenders for ST2639 – LCC Banners Production, Installation and Maintenance Services.

 

3.    In accordance with Section 178 (3) (e) of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005, enter into negotiations with any person (whether or not the person was a tenderer) with a view to entering into a contract in relation to the specified services of the tender, for the following reasons:

4.     

a.    The offers received are not within Council’s budget;

Therefore, subclauses 178(3) and 178(4) of the Local Government (General) Regulation 2005 require a decision not to accept any of the tenders for a proposed contract to be made by way of a Council resolution.

 

6.    Keeps confidential the details supplied in this report containing information on the submissions received, pursuant to the provisions of Section 10A(2)(d)(i) of the Local Government Act 1993 as it contains commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed, prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it.
