6.    What is the percentage of significant trees affected by new development in the Liverpool LGA and managed in the Biodiversity Strategy and Management Plans, Liverpool Council Tree Management Plans and Council Planning Instruments that have been removed over the past 5 years?

ITEM NO:       NOM 01

FILE NO:        283168.2017

SUBJECT:     New Train Timetable

 

BACKGROUND

 

The State Government recently unveiled the new draft train timetable for Sydney, 'More trains, more services'. According to the Department of Transport, the timetable is an effort to 'spread demand more evenly across the network'. Unfortunately, in that effort, Liverpool has lost out again.

 

Aspects of this new timetable include:

·         Trains from Liverpool to the CBD via the Granville line will take an additional 12 minutes during peak.

·         Despite earlier reports of an express service, the new City via Bankstown service will take 54 minutes during the morning peak. The same length of time as the current City via Granville service.

·         There are currently 13 services in the morning peak via Granville, there will now be 9 via Bankstown.

·         No major changes to the Cumberland line, a route currently serviced by overcrowded and outdated 4 carriage trains that run every half hour during peak.

 

Earlier this month Council posted a video to our Facebook page where I addressed some of the issues with the new draft timetable outlined above. The response has been overwhelming, as of October 12, the video has had over 20,000 views, 350 likes and 250 comments. A vast majority of the comments have expressed disappointment and anger with the new timetable.

 

This is a clear mandate from our community to act.

 

Other major population centres in Western Sydney such as Campbelltown, Blacktown, Penrith and Parramatta have a genuine express service to the CBD. Liverpool deserves better.

SUBJECT:     Cities Power Partnership

 

BACKGROUND

 

Launched in July, the Cities Power Partnership is an initiative of the Climate Council of Australia which seeks to accelerate the benefits of emissions reduction and clean energy for Australian towns and cities, providing much needed cost savings in the process.

 

Participating Councils who join the Partnership do so at no cost. There is then an initial 6 month period to select 5 key actions from a list that includes renewable energy, efficiency, transport and advocacy. Partner Councils then report on the progress they are making on those actions via a 6 monthly survey.

 

Member Councils receive access to a national knowledge hub and are 'buddied' with other similar participating councils to share knowledge. Partners are profiled in national and local media and online to promote their successes and the wider initiative.

 

Twenty New South Wales Councils joined round 1 of the Partnership including Penrith, Blacktown, Canterbury Bankstown and Hawkesbury. Round 2 will commence shortly and Liverpool should also take advantage of the opportunities this partnership will provide.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hagarty)

ITEM NO:       NOM 03

FILE NO:        284056.2017

SUBJECT:     Compliance Levy

 

Background

 

Council introduced a 0.25% compliance levy based on construction costs payable on each DA lodged at the application stage.

 

This was introduced to ensure that moving forward Council had enough resources to ensure that developments remained compliant in the years after being built.

 

In part it was also to tackle and ensure that Council was on top of things for current developments.

 

Feedback has been that given the fee is mainly for ongoing compliance and given the fact that a DA may be refused, amended or approved, Council should consider the timing of the fee.

 

Similar to Section 94 fees, consideration should be given to charging this fee at the ‘Prior to the issue of a Construction Certificate’ stage.

 

This then ensures that the correct amount is charged based on the approved construction cost and eliminates the need of issuing refunds if the DA is not approved.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hadchiti)

 

That Council:

 

1.   Amend the timing of the Compliance Levy to be charged at the ‘Prior to the issue of a Construction Certificate’ stage, similar to the Section 94 contribution; and

 

2.   All revenue to be used towards development and compliance applications.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That:

 

1.    Council receive and note the Chief Executive Officer’s Comments to the Notice of Motion (as shown below).

 

2.    All revenue to be used towards development and compliance applications.

 

Foreshadowed motion:       Moved: Clr Shelton              Seconded: Clr Karnib

 

That Council receive and note the Chief Executive Officer’s Comments to the Notice of Motion (as shown below).

 

On being put to the meeting the motion (moved by Clr Hadchiti) was declared CARRIED and the foreshadowed motion (moved by Clr Shelton) LAPSED.

 

 

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER COMMENTS TO THE NOTICE OF MOTION

 

Section 608 of the Local Government Act 1993 provides the statutory powers to set fees for a compliance levy. Council requires the levy to be paid at the point of lodgement of a development application because the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 does not allow for these fees to be levied with a condition of development consent. Clause 80A of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 sets out the provisions for conditions on a development consents. The provisions only permit conditions that levy fees for either section 94 contributions or a security payment for potential damage to council land or property.

 

Therefore, a condition requiring the payment of a compliance levy prior to the issue of a construction certificate is not enforceable.  The point of lodgement of a development application is the only time that council can require the payment of a compliance levy. 

 

Any compliance levy paid is fully refunded if the development application is withdrawn or refused.

 

The compliance levy is 0.25% of the capital investment value (CIV) of a proposed development. Calculating CIV requires detailed cost estimation and as such the CIV should not vary significantly between the development application and construction certificate submission stages of a development.

 

Council resolved in its meeting on 30 September 2015 to charge a compliance levy to provide resources to ensure compliance with the appropriate legislation, given the predicted growth and development within the Liverpool Council area.

 

Attached is the Council report and publicly available fact sheet which addresses the compliance activities Council is undertaking.

 

Council’s Financial team has provided the following summary of the cost of recurring compliance activities. There is a small amount of the levy which is unspent. A business case is under consideration to increase staffing numbers in the compliance area to meet current operational requirements with any costs to come from the unspent levy amounts.

ITEM NO:       NOM 04

FILE NO:        284076.2017

SUBJECT:     Eleventh Avenue, Austral

 

Background

 

St Anthony’s are currently constructing an educational establishment at 140 Eleventh Ave Austral.

 

As part of their DA conditions they have also constructed the half road on Eleventh Ave.

Across the road is land owned by Council and the part of it fronts to Craik Park.

 

Currently there is confusion of where to drive on the road and given that there will be an influx of children in the area, this will be a safety hazard.

 

Given that we now have half a road built and given that Council is responsible for the other half, consideration should be given to proceed with the construction of the road which is

Council responsibility which fronts Craik Park.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hadchiti)

 

That Council:

 

1.   Prepare costings on the construction of half the road which fronts Craik Park;

 

2.   Direct the CEO to find a funding source if the construction does not qualify for funding under the Section 94 plan for that area; and

 

3.   Report back to Council at the second February 2018 meeting.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That Council receive and note the Chief Executive Officer’s Comments to the Notice of Motion (as shown below).

 

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

 

 

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER COMMENTS TO THE NOTICE OF MOTION

 

St Anthony’s of Padua Catholic School, Austral at 140 Eleventh Avenue, Austral opened in early 2017.

 

The school is in the Austral and North Leppington precinct.  The precinct was released in March 2013 and new planning controls were introduced by the NSW Department of Planning & Environment (DPE), in consultation with Council, to enable urban development.

 

The planning controls include an Indicative Road Layout (ILP) with a road network and associated configurations, recommended to accommodate the planned urban development.  The ILP includes reconstruction of most of the existing rural roads including Eleventh Avenue.

 

Most of the required new roads are being progressively constructed by land developers as subdivisions proceed. In addition to the planning controls, a Section 94 Contributions Plan 2014 (for the precinct) has been adopted to fund other new or upgraded infrastructure.

 

In keeping with the development assessment policies, used by several Councils, the consent conditions for the construction of the St Anthony’s of Padua Catholic School included reconstruction to half road width of Eleventh Avenue, fronting the development site.

 

The Section 94 plan appropriately includes the reconstruction of half the road width of a 325m road section of Eleventh Avenue, east of Fourth Avenue, including the portion fronting the school and the reserve. The plan includes a funding allocation of $742,000.

 

The monetary contribution collected to date for the whole Roads & Traffic Facilities component in the Contributions Plan is $493,145.

 

Eleventh Avenue is currently a rural road with a carriage way width of approximately 6m with unsealed road shoulders and without kerb and guttering, hence the half road construction recently completed by the school has created confusion for motorists as raised in this NOM. To address this concern, Council will linemark to demarcate opposing traffic movements.

 

Council is carrying out design investigation for the required reconstruction of the remaining half road. A cost estimate with possible timing for the reconstruction will be provided to Council’s meetings in the December 2017.

 

Subject to funding availability and approval, the reconstruction would be carried out in 2018.

ITEM NO:       NOM 05

FILE NO:        284088.2017

SUBJECT:     Section 94 Contributions

 

Background

 

The Local Government Area is experiencing growth and with growth comes the need for Council to supply more and new community infrastructure.

 

Infill development is on the rise and Section 94 contributions for those areas seems to be outdated and should be reviewed immediately to ensure that Council has the funds required to ensure that infrastructure is built.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hadchiti)

 

That Council:

 

1.   Direct the CEO to prepare a timeline for a review of the Section 94 Contributions plan; and

 

2.   Report the timeline back to Council in the December meeting.

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Ayyad

ITEM NO:       NOM 06

FILE NO:        284111.2017

SUBJECT:     City Centre Renewal

 

Background

 

Council currently has Amendment 52 to the LLEP before the Department of Planning and should be gazetted by year end.

 

Amendment 52 focuses on the City Centre Core and is designed to stimulate development and activity within the CBD.

 

Bonuses will apply to sites based on meeting certain criteria, including size of the land.

 

The next layer around the core is experiencing growth and what we are seeing is a mix of new development next to older development.

 

Currently within the CBD under LLEP Section 4.4 Floor Space Ratio, bonuses are given to encourage the amalgamation of sites which produces a better quality built form.

 

These bonuses start if you have a site area greater than 1000sqm and top out at sites that have a total area of greater than 2500sqm.  Standard height limits apply.

 

Council should give consideration to applying a new level of bonus to the FSR and possibly height to encourage consolidation and redevelopment of the older style building.

 

Given there is a mismatch between height limits and FSR, it might be possible to, under a new plan, keep height limits the same yet remove increase of the FSR.

 

NOTICE OF MOTION (submitted by Clr Hadchiti)

 

That Council:

 

1.    Direct the CEO to undertake an issues and options report for areas in the city centre not affected by amendment 52 to encourage consolidation of lots and redevelopment opportunities for older housing stock and to consider the viability of an amended bonus scheme;

 

2.    Investigate a bonus scheme which encourages/mandates roof top gardens on RFB’s; and

 

3.    Report the findings to the second meeting in February 2018.

 

 

COUNCIL DECISION

 

Motion:                                  Moved: Clr Hadchiti             Seconded: Clr Hadid

 

That Council:

 

1.   Direct the CEO to undertake an issues and options report for areas in the city centre not affected by amendment 52 to encourage consolidation of lots and redevelopment opportunities for older housing stock and to consider the viability of an amended bonus scheme subject to this being in line with the draft district plan;

 

2.   Investigate a bonus scheme which encourages/mandates roof top gardens on RFB’s; and
