Issue

To reconsider Amendment No. 115 to the City’s District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2) in light of modifications required to the Amendment by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).

 

Applicant

Roberts Day on behalf of Estates Development Company

Owner

Westminster Estates Pty Ltd (part of and managed by Estates Development Company); and Western Australian Planning Commission

Location

Lot 10, Lot 11593 and portion of Lot 3054 Marmion Avenue, Jindalee

Site Area

120 hectares

MRS Zoning

Urban; Parks and Recreation

DPS 2 Zoning

Urban Development; Commercial; Civic and Cultural; Business-Restricted Use 1.26; Additional Use 2.1; Additional Use 2.2; and no zone

 

 

Background

The Jindee development site comprises Lot 10, Lot 11593 and portion of Lot 3054 Marmion Avenue, Jindalee.  A plan showing the location of the subject site is included as Attachment 1.

 

The history of planning for the Jindee site and full details of Amendment No. 115 were included in a report to Council on 31 May 2011 (Item PS05-05/11). As such, that information is not repeated in this report, which deals specifically with the WAPC’s required modifications to Amendment No. 115.

 

Council at its meeting on 31 May 2011 resolved (Item PS05-05/11) to adopt Amendment No. 115 for the purpose of (generally) dividing DPS 2 into two divisions (A and B), with Division – A comprising the existing DPS 2 text and Division – B comprising extensive new provisions relating to the introduction of a “Smart Growth Community” zone into the Scheme, and the application of that zone to the proposed Jindee development. That resolution also required Amendment No. 115 to be referred to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for comment and to the WAPC for consent to advertise.

 

In accordance with Council’s decision, Amendment No. 115 was referred to the EPA for comment and, in response, the EPA advised that the proposal did not require formal environmental assessment. The WAPC subsequently considered the Amendment in January 2012 for consent to advertise for public comment.

 

By letter dated 31 January 2012 (refer Attachment 2) the WAPC advised the City that it had granted consent to advertise the amendment for public comment, subject to several modifications being made before advertising and a further suite of modifications being made after advertising.

 

Since receiving notification of the WAPC’s decision, Administration has been liaising with the proponent and the Department of Planning (DoP) to explore options for addressing that decision and to progress Amendment No. 115 to advertising.

Detail

The WAPC’s decision on Amendment No. 115 requires significant changes to be made to the amendment proposal, both prior to and after public advertising. Some of these changes undermine the original purpose, intent and philosophy of the proposal agreed by Council, while others are contradictory and would require modifications made prior to advertising to then be re-done or undone after advertising. If those changes were to be made, it is likely the Amendment would then need to be readvertised for public comment.

The WAPC’s decision suggests that neither it nor the DoP were prepared to entertain the type of new planning framework proposed by Amendment No. 115; which deliberately departed from the traditional (standard) approach to land use planning and development in Western Australia.

The decision on Amendment No. 115 was particularly disappointing to the proponent, given that more than two years of intensive work had been invested in the proposal with Administration; and because the Jindee project has been the subject of a long-standing ‘Innovation Agreement’ between Estates Development Company (EDC), the City and the WAPC, with the intent being to deliver a new, innovative model for planning and development in the State.

The proponent has considered the WAPC’s decision at length and has concluded that the uncertainties created by that decision are too great for it to contemplate proceeding with Amendment No. 115 in its current form. Consequently, the proponent has prepared a revised version of Amendment No. 115 in consultation with DoP and City staff, which is intended to address the general sentiment of the WAPC’s decision whilst still preserving the purpose, intent and philosophy underpinning the original amendment proposal.

 

It is anticipated that adopting a revised version of Amendment No. 115 (in place of the version adopted in May 2011) will avoid the need for further referral to or assessment by the EPA and will enable the WAPC to grant its (revised) consent to advertise the proposal for public comment.

 

The revised version of Amendment No. 115 proposes significantly fewer changes to DPS 2 than the previously adopted version of the amendment. Importantly, the revised amendment will maintain the same purpose, intent and philosophy of the original amendment, but enlists a more conventional approach to planning to achieve those outcomes. This generally involves the following:

 

·        Introducing a new zone into DPS 2 (Smart Growth Community zone) together with corresponding Scheme provisions that set out the objectives, standards and requirements applicable to that zone;

 

·        Rezoning the subject land to Smart Growth Community zone; and

 

·        Requiring a Local Structure Plan to be prepared and agreed by Council as a prerequisite to any subdivision or development within the Smart Growth Community zone.

 

Included as Attachment 3 is a table that provides a comparison between the key provisions of Amendment No. 115 as previously adopted and in its revised form. The entire amending text proposed by the revised version of Amendment No. 115 is included as Attachment 4.

 

The previously adopted version of Amendment No. 115 proposed the introduction of approximately 120 pages of additional scheme provisions into DPS 2, whereas the revised version of Amendment No. 115 would introduce only five pages of additional provisions into DPS 2.

Consultation

All scheme amendments must (by law) be subject to public consultation.  However, the Town Planning Regulations provide that where an amendment is consistent with the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) and State policies and strategies, then the consent of the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) will not be required to advertise the amendment.  In this instance, Amendment No. 115 (both previous and revised) is not directly consistent with the WAPC’s Residential Design Codes and, as a result, the consent of the WAPC will be required to advertise the proposed amendment for public comment.

 

As the revised version of Amendment No. 115 incorporates the same environmental conditions and rezoning area as the previously adopted version of Amendment No. 115, it is expected that the amendment will not require formal referral to the EPA (because its previous assessment of the proposal will not be altered by the revised Amendment). Therefore, the revised Amendment can be referred back to the WAPC for its reconsideration of consent to advertise the proposal for public comment.

 

Once the WAPC has granted its consent to advertise the revised Amendment, it must be advertised for public comment for a period of 42 days.  Advertising would occur in the following manner, consistent with the requirements of the Town Planning Regulations 1967:

 

·        Advertisement in a local newspaper for one week;

·        Placement of a sign on affected sites, giving notice of the proposal;

·        Display notice of the proposal in Council offices;

·        Display on the City’s website;  and

·        Referral in writing to affected persons/agencies.

Comment

Under the revised version of Amendment No. 115, the subject land would still be rezoned to Smart Growth Community zone (as proposed by the previously adopted version) with corresponding provisions being included in DPS 2 for that zone. Those new provisions would generally establish the purpose and function of the Smart Growth Community zone and would mandate the need for a Local Structure Plan to be agreed prior to subdivision and development of the land. The local structure plan and subsequent planning stages (such as detailed area planning) would then prescribe further detailed planning controls that apply to Jindee to achieve the originally intended development outcomes.

 

Importantly, none of the work invested in the preparation of the previous version of Amendment No. 115 will be lost by proceeding with the revised version of that amendment, as that work will instead now inform the subsequent stages of the planning process, rather than being incorporated in DPS 2 by a scheme amendment, as was previously proposed.

 

Administration does not support the modifications required by the WAPC (as described in Attachment 2) for the following key reasons:

 

·        Administration considers it to be beyond the legislative ability and scope of the WAPC to require the Amendment to be modified both prior to and after public advertising;

 

·        Some of the modifications required by the WAPC prior to advertising would be contrary to other modifications required after advertising. This would likely result in the post-advertising modifications being deemed a significant enough departure from the advertised version of the Amendment that the Amendment would need to be readvertised for further public advertising, resulting in additional delays and uncertainties for the project;

 

·        Imprecise instruction is provided for many of the required modifications and therefore it is difficult to gauge exactly what is required (particularly for those modifications required after advertising), thus creating further uncertainty.

 

Although the revised version of Amendment No. 115 does not directly address the specific modifications required by the WAPC, it does respond to the purpose and intent of those modifications, whilst remaining true to the principles underpinning the previously adopted version of the amendment.

 

Administration understands that Department of Planning staff have briefed the Chairman of the WAPC and the Director General of the Department, of the approach that is proposed under the revised version of Amendment No. 115 and both were satisfied that the revised version of the Amendment is within the parameters of the current WAPC decision and able to be returned to the WAPC for consent to advertise.

 

The revised version of Amendment No. 115 will simplify and standardise the planning approach applying to the Smart Growth Community zone, while still facilitating the same innovation and development outcomes always intended for the Jindee project. Further, the generic structure of the revised Amendment will enable Council to consider proposals for other ‘Smart Growth Communities’ elsewhere in the City in future, subject to the same principles of ‘transect’ planning and ‘form-based codes’ being applied to those other proposals, as in the case of the Jindee project.

Statutory Compliance

The Scheme amendment will follow the statutory process outlined in the Town Planning Regulations 1967. The Regulations require Scheme Amendments to be dealt with in certain timeframes, depending on the stage in the planning process that the Amendment is going through.

 

In accordance with Regulation 14(4), the City was required to either modify Amendment No. 115 in accordance with the WAPC’s decision (if it decided to proceed), or (if it decided to not proceed) notify the WAPC of its decision, within 42 days of being notified of the WAPC's required modifications "or any longer period approved by the Minister or authorised person".

 

The WAPC’s letter advising of its decision on Amendment No. 115 was dated 31 January 2012, therefore requiring the City to make a decision on the WAPC’s modifications by 13 March 2012. At that date, the proponent and Administration were still reviewing the details of the WAPC’s modifications and discussing the same with the DoP. Consequently, the Director Planning and Sustainability sought an extension of time under the Regulations for Council to reconsider Amendment No. 115 in light of the WAPC’s modifications.

 

By letter dated 3 April 2012 the WAPC advised that the Minister for Planning had approved Administration’s request for an extension of time for Council to reconsider Amendment No. 115. That letter required the City to resubmit the modified Scheme Amendment documents to the WAPC within 30 days from the date of the Minister’s decision, made on 2 April 2012 – being Thursday 17 May 2012.

 

In order to achieve this timeframe, it is necessary for Council to consider this matter at its meeting on 1 May 2012. This will enable the City to respond in a timely manner in accordance with Regulation 14(4)(a) (should Council resolve to proceed with the revised Amendment), which requires the City to:

 

(i)      settle the modifications with the Commission together with any other modifications which appear to be necessary at that time;

(ii)      request the Commission to obtain the consent of the Minister or authorised person to the further modifications; and

(iii)     resubmit the Scheme documents with the required modifications duly carried out.

 

Alternatively, if Council resolves to abandon Amendment No. 115 altogether, then it must resolve to do so and to advise the WAPC accordingly. If that occurs, the Amendment will not progress any further.

Strategic Implications

The proposal accords with the following Outcome Objective of the City’s Strategic Plan 2006 – 2021:

 “1     Environment

1.3    Minimise impact of development on the environment

 

1.4    Improve the quality of the built environment

 

2     Social

 

2.1    Increase choice and quality of neighbourhood and lifestyle options

 

3     Economic

 

3.2 Support business and initiatives”

Policy Implications

Once the amendment is finally adopted, the City’s local planning policies may need to be amended to specifically capture or exclude the Jindee project, as the case requires.

Financial Implications

There are no direct costs to Council arising from the proposed Scheme amendment, although the development that eventually occurs in Jindee will inevitably result in both income, derived from rates, and costs, arising from management of new assets by the City.

Voting Requirements

Simple Majority

Location

Lot 20 (69), Mariginiup. Rousset Road, Mariginiup.

Background

On 13 September 2005 an application was lodged with the City seeking approval for Intensive Agriculture (mushroom farm) at Lot 20 Rousset Road, Mariginiup. Intensive Agriculture is defined under the City’s District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2) as follows:

 

“Intensive Agriculture : means any land or buildings used for trade or commercial purposes for the following:

 

(a)     the production of grapes, vegetables, flowers, exotic and native plants, fruits and nuts (including market gardens); or

(b)     the establishment of and operation of plant and fruit nurseries; or

(c)     the development of land for irrigated fodder product and irrigated pasture (including turf farms).”

 

On 9 January 2006, an approval for Intensive Agriculture on the subject lot was issued (DA2005/675) under delegated authority, subject to several conditions, with condition (2) being - “the intensive agriculture use, mushroom growing, shall be carried out in accordance with the submitted correspondence dated 5 December 2005 to the satisfaction of the Manager Planning Services”. Among other things, this correspondence (included as Attachment 1) stated that the Intensive Agriculture would operate between the hours of 8am and 4pm four to five days per week; would have an annual mushroom production of 200 tonnes; would employ up to 10 people; and compost would be delivered to the property in 25 kilogram bags. Given condition (2), further approval is required if the operation is be carried out in any manner inconsistent with the correspondence that was submitted on 5 December 2005.

 


 

Between 21 October 2011 and 13 January 2012, the City received several complaints about the subject property regarding compost delivery, box manufacturing, operating hours and employees living on site. The City’s Planning Compliance Officers commenced investigation into these complaints on 8 November 2011, and found that the mushroom farm was not being operated in accordance with condition (2) of DA2005/675, as compost was being delivered to the property by truck, and the applicant was operating for longer than the approved hours. As a result of discussions with the City’s Planning Compliance Officers, and action taken by the City, the applicant has since reverted back to operating the Intensive Agriculture in accordance with the conditions of approval. However, on 21 November 2011, the City received an application for planning approval (DA2011/1119) for a retrospective amendment to the existing approval for Intensive Agriculture (DA2005/675). The application was submitted as retrospective because at the time of submission, the activity was not being operated in accordance with Condition (2) of DA2005/675.

 

On 23 January 2012, the City received a further application (DA2012/33) for planning approval for a Change of Use to Rural Industry for one of the existing sheds on Lot 20 Rousset Road. A Rural Industry land use is defined in DPS 2 as follows:

 

“Industry – rural : means an industry handling, treating, processing or packaging primary products grown, reared or produced in the locality, and a workshop used for the servicing of plant or equipment used for rural purposes in the locality.”

 

It is both of the abovementioned development applications, DA2011/1119 and DA2012/33 which are the subject of this report. The City’s Planning Compliance Officer’s are continuing to carry out inspections of the subject property approximately fortnightly, which commenced on 13 January 2012, to ensure operations continue to operate in compliance with the current approval.

Detail

The subject land is depicted on the location plan included as Attachment 2, while Attachment 3 depicts a site plan showing the location of the land uses currently occurring on the property, and those proposed under the two new applications. These two proposals are detailed below.

 

Proposal 1: Development Application 2011/1119 – Amendment to DA2005/675 Intensive Agriculture.

 

The applicant is seeking to vary the operating conditions of the mushroom farm set out in condition (2) of the approval for DA2005/675 in the following ways:

 

·        Extend the operating hours from 8am - 4pm four to five days per week, to 7am - 10pm five to seven days per week;

·        An expansion in anticipated annual mushroom production, from 200 tonnes to approximately 520 tonnes;

·        An increase in associated vehicle movements to 10 – 15 trips per day, the number of vehicle movements was not prescribed under DA2005/675;

·        An increase in staff from 7 - 10 people to 10 -15 people.

 

The applicant has advised that the longer hours of operation are necessary in order to account for fluctuations in mushroom production, and the need to ensure produce is delivered to buyers on time. Although the applicant does not expect to utilise the longer hours all the time, it is expected that there will be times of the year when an increased mushroom yield requires operations to occur until 10pm seven nights per week.

 

Proposal 2: Development application 2012/33 – Change of use to Rural Industry (Processing and packaging fruit and vegetable).

 

The applicant is also proposing a change of use for one shed on the property from a ‘Rural Use’ to an ‘Industry – rural.’ The proposal requests the:

 

·        Use of one existing shed (marked as “Proposed area for Rural Industry” on the site plan included as Attachment 3) for the handling, treating, processing, and packaging of fruits and vegetables which are grown and produced in the locality;

·        Hours of operation to be between 7am and 10pm, five to seven days per week, depending on the quantity of crops and the temperature; and

·        Up to 5 truck movements to and from the property per day.

 

As with the Intensive Agriculture use, the hours of operation for the Rural Industry use will vary depending on the season, and the need to collect/receive, pack and load fruit and vegetables on trucks to be delivered to the markets.

Consultation

An Intensive Agriculture land use is a ‘P’ (Permitted as of right) use in the Rural Resource zone, and therefore advertising is not mandated under the City’s DPS 2.  However, based on complaints received regarding the operation of the mushroom farm, Administration decided to advertise Proposal 1. Advertising to nearby property owners commenced initially on 8 December 2011, with the closing date for comment being 6 January 2012. Advertising was conducted by way of a letter which was issued to the owners of properties within a 500 metre radius of the sheds where the Intensive Agriculture activity is carried out.

 

During the advertising period, Administration received community feedback that this 500 metre radius was insufficient, and furthermore, that over the Christmas period residents would be busy and would not have the chance to respond to the City regarding the application. In response, the advertising period was extended to 19 January 2012 and the advertising area was extended to include the owners of all properties within 500 metres of the boundaries of Lot 20.  The City sent a revised letter to nearby landowners, advising them of the proposal and the new closing date for comments.

 

At the conclusion of the advertising period, 21 submissions had been received. Of the submissions received the majority (19) were opposed to the proposal, while two were in support. The main issues raised during the advertising period and following a detailed assessment by Administration relate to the following:

 

1.       The current operation should have been advertised for public comment before being approved by the City in 2006;

 

2.       The Intensive Agriculture activity adversely impacts on the amenity of the community;

 

3.       The proposal is inconsistent with the intentions of the East Wanneroo Structure Plan (EWSP) which marks the area for potential future urban development;  and

 

4.       Boxes are being manufactured on the property and sold commercially for off-site users.

 

Attachment 4 contains a summary of submissions received and a cross-reference to the submitters that raised the issues listed, along with Administration’s response to each issue. Attachment 5 provides a list of submitters that can be cross-referenced to the schedule of submissions in Attachment 4. A further plan is included as Attachment 6 that depicts the location of the properties belonging to both supporters and objectors to the proposal. 

 

The use ‘Rural Industry’ is a ‘P’ (Permitted) use in the Rural Resource zone.  Advertising of this use is not required under DPS 2. As the same operating hours for the property were advertised in Proposal 1, it was not considered necessary to advertise Proposal 2 for the change of use to Rural Industry.  In any event, it is expected that the submissions on Proposal 1 will be applicable and relevant to Proposal 2.  As these two applications are inter- related, they are being presented to Council together, thus enabling the submissions on Proposal 1 to also be considered in the context of Proposal 2.

Comment

Major issued raised by submitters

 

The four major issues raised by submitters are discussed in detail below.

 

1.       Existing Intensive Agriculture (mushroom farm) approval (DA2005/675)

 

Several submitters commented that the approval which was issued for the existing Intensive Agriculture (mushroom farm) in 2006 (DA2005/675), did not follow the appropriate protocol as it was not advertised. However, as Intensive Agriculture is a ‘P’ (Permitted) use in the Rural Resource zone under DPS 2, advertising of such a proposal is not required and the City could not withhold approval of that land use on the basis of its inappropriateness, but could only apply conditions to the approval. The original application was also not advertised because the application (at that time) outlined stringent operating conditions, with hours being 8am - 4pm, compost being delivered in 25 kilogram bags, and staff being limited to 7 to 10 people, and, because the proposal involved a relocation of the business from another property at Wells Street, Mariginiup, where it was apparent that the operation was being undertaken in a manner which did not impact on adjacent residents. The approval was conditioned in a manner which required the Intensive Agriculture to operate strictly as prescribed. Now that an amendment to these conditions has been sought and because there have been complaints about the property, it was considered appropriate to advertise these proposed changes for public comment.

 

2.       Amenity

 

Several submissions were received that were concerned with the impact that the Intensive Agriculture activity has on the amenity of the community. The majority of these submissions related to the noise and lights associated with a large number of trucks entering and exiting the property.

 

As indicated above, the City has in the past received noise complaints against the subject property, however, any noise which is generated by non-farming activities on the subject property is required to comply with the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 at all times. On each occasion that a noise complaint has been received by the City, the City’s Health Officers requested that residents affected by the noise submit a noise log sheet as per the City’s noise complaint procedure. To date, the City has not received any noise complaint against this property that accords with the City’s noise procedures. In the event that a noise complaint is received, the City’s Health Officers have advised that this would be investigated and (if substantiated) the property owner would be required to undertake appropriate measures to ensure compliance with the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997. Whilst there are noise exemptions for farming vehicles on rural properties between the hours of sunrise and sunset, the definition of ‘farming vehicle’ in these regulations does not extend to delivery trucks.  As such, the noise generated by these delivery trucks must comply with the regulations.

 

Several submissions also raised the issue of the smell associated with compost production on the subject property.

This issue has also been investigated by the City’s Planning Compliance and Health Officers, who found that open compost had started to be delivered and dumped on the property in breach of condition (2) of planning approval DA2005/675, which required compost to be delivered in 25 kilogram bags. Following action by the City’s Planning Compliance Officers this activity has now ceased. Notwithstanding this matter, the property is required to comply with the Health Act 1911, which covers nuisances such as odours.

 

The Health Act details that if an accumulation or deposit exists which is offensive or dangerous to health, this is deemed a nuisance and a breach of the Act. The Act however, also establishes the defence that if the nuisance is incidental to the reasonable and proper carrying on of a trade, and if the best practicable means have been taken to prevent the nuisance, the nuisance is deemed not to exist.  The use of pre-packaged compost reduces the odour which is normally associated with onsite composting. It is therefore considered that currently, all practicable, reasonable and proper efforts have been made to prevent the nuisance occurring as a result of the operations of the Intensive Agriculture activity.

 

Further to the above, it is important to note that submissions received in support of the application were received by the owners of properties directly adjoining the mushroom farm, one of which includes the residence in closest proximity to the sheds where the Intensive Agriculture activity is being carried out. These submitters indicated that they had not experienced any nuisance from the noise or odour as a result of activities on the property. In particular, these submitters commented that the regular noises associated with the activity were not intrusive. 

 

3.       East Wanneroo Structure Plan (EWSP) Final Report 2011

 

The EWSP Final Report 2011 depicts the subject property and surrounding land as having potential for future urban development. Many submitters expressed concern about the impact the mushroom farm may have on the subdivision potential and value of nearby properties, in particular due to a 500 metre ‘buffer zone’ shown on the EWSP around the mushroom farm. Many submitters also commented that approval of the land use is not in line with the intentions of the EWSP.

 

In relation to these concerns, it must be noted that the EWSP has been prepared and adopted by the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC); it has not been adopted by the City and does not have the status of a structure plan under DPS 2. Council at its meeting on 5 April 2011 (Item PS09-04/11) considered the final EWSP and resolved (among other things) to reaffirm its resolution from 11 December 2001 (Item PD01-12/07) as the City’s interim position on planning proposals for East Wanneroo, until such time as Administration has prepared and Council has adopted a Local Planning Policy in place of that resolution, to define the City’s expectations and requirements for progressing planning proposals in East Wanneroo. In accordance with the remainder of Council’s April 2011 resolution, Administration distributed a detailed Information Sheet to all landowners within the EWSP area, informing them of Council’s position on future planning and development in that area.

 

It is important to note that the depiction of land as “potential urban” under the EWSP in no way guarantees that that land will be rezoned to facilitate urbanisation. This is expressed throughout the EWSP, including in section 5.2.1, which recognises that “potential urban” areas are constrained and that the “Suitability of land for urban development will require further detailed investigations with respect to environmental issues, availability of infrastructure and the responsible staging of works”.

 


 

One of the concerns that Council raised in respect of the EWSP was that it prematurely identifies land as “potential urban” even though that land may in fact not be suitable or capable of accommodating such development, depending on the findings of the many further investigations that need to occur. This in turn has (regrettably) created expectations of urban development among many landowners within the EWSP area. These studies will take considerable resources and time (years) to carry out and will require a commitment to planning and implementation of the structure plan from the State Government, but which is not evident from the EWSP itself. Consequently, it is likely to be several years before sufficient investigations have even been concluded to define the true nature and extent of developable land within parts of the EWSP area.

 

In accordance with Council’s April 2011 decision, Administration is in the processing of finalising a Draft Local Planning Policy to guide the advancement of planning in the EWSP area. It is anticipated this draft policy will be referred to Council within the next two-three months, for consent to advertise it for public comment.

 

Notwithstanding the above and in accordance with Clause 6.6.1 of DPS 2, Council cannot refuse either application (both being ‘P’ uses) by reason of their unsuitability.  Further, given the likely timeframe for progressing the planning of East Wanneroo, it is considered reasonable to impose a 10 year time limit as a condition on the planning approval. Such a condition will allow the use to occur, but for a finite period that will not prevent urbanisation of the area in future, if deemed appropriate following further detailed investigations.

 

4.       Box manufacturing on site

 

Many submitters raised the issue that commercial box manufacturing is occurring on the subject property, and that trucks from packaging companies (Amcor and Profile) have been seen entering and exiting the subject property.  The submitters contend that this activity is noisy and should not operate outside of an industrial area.

 

The City’s Planning Compliance Officers, during fortnightly inspections, have investigated allegations that boxes are being manufactured at the subject property and sold commercially for off-site uses. No evidence has been found to confirm these allegations; rather, it has been found that box folding machinery is used on site for purposes that are incidental to the approved land use. Furthermore, the City can confirm that both Amcor and Profile provide product for Lion Mushrooms. The City’s Planning Compliance Officers will continue to investigate this issue in the future when necessary.

 

Administration is recommending that a condition (no. 10) be imposed on any approval granted for the Intensive Agriculture and Industry-Rural that allows box folding to occur on the property in association with those approved uses. The DPS 2 definition of Industry-Rural allows for the processing and packaging of products grown in the locality, therefore, if Council supports this arrangement, box manufacturing will be able to occur on the property, for the packaging of produce grown in the locality (i.e. the City of Wanneroo) not just for the mushrooms produced from Lot 20.

 

Conclusion

 

The subject land is zoned ‘Rural Resource’ under DPS 2, and as such, both the Intensive Agriculture and Rural Industry land uses are ‘P’ (permitted)uses under Table 1 of DPS 2. Council cannot refuse the application based on the unsuitability of the proposed uses, but may in its discretion impose any conditions it considers appropriate.

 

Further to the above, the provisions of the Rural Resource zone refer specifically to protecting Rural Resource zoned land from incompatible uses and subdivision, in favour of uses including Intensive Agriculture.

 

Administration recommends approval of both DA2011/1119 and DA2012/33 for the following reasons:

 

1.       Intensive Agriculture and Rural Industry are both ‘P’ (Permitted) land uses in the Rural Resource zone; the applications therefore cannot be refused based on unsuitability of land use.

 

2.       Impacts on amenity are considered to be minor, in keeping with the purpose and intent of the Rural Resource zone, and manageable under other legislation, including standards related to noise and smell.

 

3.       It is inappropriate to refuse the application based on the EWSP; however, it is reasonable to condition the approval with a time limit, in order to ensure the existence of this operation does not prevent realisation of longer-term planning opportunities.

 

Due to the large number of past land use approvals for the subject property, and in order to provide certainty about the land uses occurring on the property in the future, Administration recommends that any approval for the abovementioned applications should be conditioned in a manner that encompasses all previous land uses approved on the property, and supersedes the approvals for those land uses. Given this, Attachment 7 contains the site plan that Administration is recommending for approval.

Statutory Compliance

This application has been assessed in accordance with the City of Wanneroo’s District Planning Scheme No. 2.

Issue

To consider a development application for a commercial development at Lot 19 (20) Clarkson Avenue, Tapping.

 

Applicant

Greg Rowe & Associates

Owner

Freshlink Export Pty Ltd

Location

Lot 19 (20) Clarkson Avenue, Tapping

Site Area

4.426ha

DPS 2 Zoning

Urban Development

 

 

Background

 

On 8 March 2011, Greg Rowe and Associates, on behalf of Freshlink Export Pty Ltd submitted an application for planning approval to develop a local commercial centre at Lot 19 (20) Clarkson Avenue, Tapping. The application was lodged subsequent to the certification of Amendment No. 12 to Agreed Structure Plan No. 3 (ASP 3), adopted by Council at its meeting of 18 November 2008 and by the Western Australian Planning Commission on 13 December 2010, which rezoned the western half of Lot 19 from Residential to Commercial and increased the residential density coding of the eastern half of the site from Residential R20 to Residential R40.

 

Detail

 

The proposal relates to the western portion of Lot 19, bounded by Clarkson Avenue to the north, Wanneroo Road to the west, developed residential properties to the south and the future extension of Corvus Road to the east (refer to location plan, Attachment 1). The site is zoned Urban Development under District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2) and Commercial under ASP 3.

 

The proposed centre comprises a ‘drive-through food outlet’, ‘convenience store’, ‘carwash’, ‘office’, ‘medical centre’, ‘veterinary consulting room’, ‘take-away food outlet’, ‘restaurant’ and ‘shop’ uses, all of which are either ‘P’ (permitted) or ‘D’ (discretionary) uses within the Commercial zone.

 

The site is allocated a maximum retail floorspace provision of 1,100m2 net lettable area (NLA) under Schedule 1 of ASP 3. Retail uses are those which are listed under ‘Planning Land Use Category 5 (PLUC 5): Shop/Retail’, contained within the Western Australian Planning Commission’s (WAPC) Perth Land Use and Employment Survey. The proposal involves the full utilisation of the retail floorspace allocated to the site, with an additional 1,415m2 of floorspace being provided for non-retail uses, resulting in a total floorspace of 2,515m2.

The site and elevation plans that were advertised during the public consultation period are included as Attachment 2.


 

 

Subsequent to public consultation, the applicant lodged revised plans with the City in response to issues raised by Administration relating to the design of the proposal. The amended plans are included as Attachment 3 and the amendments made are discussed in the ‘Consultation’ section of this report.

Consultation

Public consultation was undertaken from 9 August 2011 to 29 August 2011 by way of advertisement in the Wanneroo Times newspaper, a sign erected on site and letters to potentially affected property owners. The delay between lodgement of the application and the public consultation period was due to various revisions to the initial plans being made, both voluntarily by the applicant and at the request of Administration.

 

At the conclusion of the public consultation period, 22 submissions were received, three of which supported the proposal and 17 of which objected to the proposal. Two of the submissions received were considered to be neither in support of nor in opposition to the proposal. A summary of submissions received and Administration’s responses are included as Attachment 4. A submitter reference table is included as Attachment 5.

 

Subsequent to the feedback received from submitters during the advertising period and Administration’s assessment of the proposal, the applicant lodged further amended plans on 2 November 2011 and 19 December 2011. The amended plans included the following revisions:

 

·        Relocation of the western-most crossover along Clarkson Avenue by 55 metres from Wanneroo Road in order to meet the minimum separation distance required by the City’s Traffic Engineers;

·        Rationalisation of the number of crossovers onto Clarkson Avenue from three to two, with the easternmost crossover redesigned to allow for separate left and right turn exit lanes;

·        Reconfiguration of the internal movement network as a result of the above amendment;

·        Relocation of the proposed ‘drive-through food outlet’ from the southern boundary to the centre of the site, with the proposed car wash being relocated from the centre of the site to the southern boundary;

·        Reduction in the size of the proposed ‘drive-through food outlet’ which allowed for the inclusion of a second ‘drive-through food outlet’ (drive through coffee) to be provided, whilst still complying with the 1,100m2 NLA retail floorspace limit;

·        Articulation of the proposed ‘shop’ tenancies on the north-eastern corner of the lot so as to provide for an improved streetscape; and

·        An increase in the number of shade trees proposed within the carparking area and surrounding the site.

 

As the amended plans did not materially change the nature of proposed development and the amendments were made in response to concerns with certain aspects of the original design, Administration did not advertise the modified proposal. The majority of submissions received during advertising of the original plans are still considered to be relevant to Council’s determination of the revised plans.

 

The main issues raised during the advertising period related to:

 

·        Anti-social behaviour;

·        Impacts on the amenity of nearby properties;

·        Consistency with local and state planning policies;

·        Potential traffic impacts;

·        Provision of traffic lights at the intersection of Wanneroo Road and Clarkson Avenue.

 

A detailed discussion of the major issues considered in the assessment of the application is provided in the Comment section of this report.

Comment

Anti-Social Behaviour

 

Approximately half of the submitters raised concerns relating to anti-social behaviour, specifically ‘hooning’, littering, graffiti and loitering occurring as a result of the proposal. Several of the submissions related to instances of anti-social behaviour already experienced in the area, rather than the potential for the proposal to encourage or increase instances of anti-social behaviour. These concerns appear to be based upon the inclusion of ‘convenience store’, ‘take-away food outlet’ and ‘drive-through food outlet’ uses within the centre.  In this regard, it must be noted that ‘convenience store’ is a ‘P’ (permitted) use within the Commercial zone, while ‘take-away food outlet’ and ‘drive-through food outlet’ are both ‘D’ (discretionary) uses. A 21 signature petition opposing the ‘fast food’ component of the proposal was presented to Council at its meeting of 23 August 2011 (item PT06-08/11).

 

The perceived risk of anti-social behaviour resulting from this development is not a valid planning consideration in determination of this proposal.  Such matters can be addressed through appropriate centre management, and if necessary, involvement of the Police. Furthermore, Administration considers the uses proposed to be appropriate within the centre, due to the activity and surveillance they will provide outside of standard business hours. This position is reaffirmed by Clause 5.2.1 of State Planning Policy 4.2 – Activity Centres for Perth and Peel (SPP 4.2), which states that “Land uses which generate activity outside normal business hours (e.g – hospitality and entertainment, community facilities, gymnasiums) should be located in activity centres to generate additional evening and weekend activity and to take advantage of shared use of facilities such as car parking and public transport.”

 

To assist in addressing the concerns of anti-social behaviour that may occur, the applicant is encouraged to consider the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) to deter any such behaviour and gather evidence of any anti-social activity.  Should the applicant install CCTV they should be further encouraged to network it into the Western Australian Police “Blue Iris” system to enable monitoring of the cameras.

 

Impacts on the Amenity of Nearby Properties

 

Submitters raised concerns regarding the potential for the proposal to adversely affect the amenity of Residential zoned properties abutting or adjacent to the site through the generation and emission of noise, smells and light spill. These issues are generally regulated under various environmental health regulations and legislation enforced by the City’s Environmental Health Officers, including the Environmental Protection Act 1986, Health Act 1911 and the City’s Health Local Law 1999.

 

Administration notes that the only Residential zoned properties abutting the subject site are the seven single houses located on the northern side of Bittern Street (adjacent to the southern boundary of Lot 19), while the development of the Residential zoned land on the eastern side of the future extension of Corvus Road would occur subsequent to, or in conjunction with the development of the subject proposal, ensuring that prospective purchasers are aware of the subject development.

 

The aforementioned amendments to the initial design of the proposal, in addition to recommended conditions of approval requiring the preparation of an acoustic report, construction of a solid (masonry or concrete) screening wall along a portion of the southern boundary of the lot and specific lighting requirements will appropriately mitigate any potential off-site impacts, should Council resolve to approve the proposal.

 

It is also noted that under the Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 the operating hours of certain uses within the development could be restricted and regulated if the amount of noise generated by the proposal exceeds prescribed acceptable levels. 

 

Administration raised concerns about the initial design lodged with the City and its treatment of the eastern elevation that would face the future extension of Corvus Road and future residential development. In response, the applicant revised the initial design prior to the commencement of advertising in order to improve the appearance and function of this elevation through the inclusion of feature walls, high level window openings, use of a variety of building materials, provision of pedestrian access and a ‘shopfront’ being incorporated into the ‘medical centre’. It is noted that 23.83% of the site is proposed to be landscaped, which significantly exceeds the 8% minimum required under DPS 2 and will assist in ameliorating the visual impact of the proposal and providing a desirable interface between it and the public realm. While the proposal does not incorporate ‘main street’ principles, Administration is of the view that the design of the proposal is appropriate given its location and purpose and that it adequately addresses the public realm, albeit through design elements rather than activated frontages. 

 

Consistency With Local and State Planning Policies

 

Several submitters contended that the proposal did not accord with the provisions of the City’s Centres Local Planning Policy (LPP) and State Planning Policy 4.2: Activity Centres (SPP 4.2). Those contentions were based primarily on the misconception that the land uses and quantity of non-retail floorspace proposed are more akin to that of a higher order ‘neighbourhood centre’, rather than the lower order ‘local centre’ the site is designated as under ASP 3, which would attract a larger population catchment than was originally intended. 

 

Given that the Commercial zoned portion of Lot 19 measures approximately 1.88 hectares in area, but is subject to a retail floorspace limit of only 1,100m2, Administration is of the view that it is appropriate that additional floorspace has been provided in the form of non-retail land uses which are capable of being approved within the Commercial zone. Administration notes that the provision of non-retail floorspace is not specifically limited within such centres, with floorspace being indirectly limited by the area of the site and the carparking requirements of the particular land uses under DPS 2. The potential conflict with existing and proposed centres within the area was addressed as part of Amendment No. 12 to ASP 3 which involved a retail analysis carried out by Shrapnel Urban Planning. The report supported the proposal and the 1,100m2 retail floorspace limit, concluding that the proposal would not interfere with the hierarchy of existing and proposed centres in the area.

 

Submitters also noted that ‘office’, ‘veterinary consulting rooms’ and ‘medical centre’ uses were “not encouraged” within ‘local centres’ under Table 5.1 of the City’s Centres LPP as they could attract a larger population catchment than is expected for a ‘local centre’. Regardless of that presumption in the LPP, these uses are all ‘P’ (permitted as of right) within the Commercial zone under Table 1 of DPS 2 and cannot be refused by virtue of their inappropriateness. Similar contentions were made regarding to the inclusion of a ‘drive-through food outlet’ within the centre, which is listed as being “not permitted” within ‘local centres’ under Table 5.1 of the City’s Centres LPP. This policy provision contradicts DPS 2 which lists this use as a ‘D’ (discretionary) use within the Commercial zone.

 

 Clause 8.11.2.1 of DPS 2 states that:

 

“Any local planning policy prepared under this Part shall be consistent with the Scheme and if any inconsistency arises the Scheme shall prevail.”

 


 

 

While Clause 6.6.2 of DPS 2 requires Council to have due regard to the provisions of a local planning policy when considering an application for a ‘D’ use, Clause 8.11.2.2 states that the provisions of a local planning policy do not bind the Council in respect of any application for planning approval. Notwithstanding the provisions of the City’s Centres LPP, Administration considers a ‘drive-through food outlet’ is appropriate on the subject site, given its location and exposure to the intersection of Wanneroo Road (primary distributor road) and Clarkson Avenue (neighbourhood connector road) and its setback of approximately 50 metres from the nearest Residential zoned property.

 

The uses proposed in the application are consistent with the designation of the site and its commercial zoning and will provide services and facilities, as well as employment opportunities for the local community. It is further noted that Administration is currently preparing a draft Local Planning Policy 3.2 – Activity Centres (LPP 3.2), which is not proposed to prescribe use permissibility, as that is determined under DPS 2 or an applicable structure plan. The draft LPP 3.2 will be presented to Council for approval to advertise in the near future and will supersede the existing Centre’s LPP.

 

Traffic Impacts

 

Many of the submitters had concerns that the proposal would result in an increase in traffic travelling through the area, which would compound existing traffic congestion experienced by residents and compromise the safety of children who attend the nearby St Stephens School.

 

Administration requested that a Transport Assessment Report be provided as part of the application, in order to determine and justify any potential traffic implications for the surrounding road network. The report found that the proposal would generate 1,048 vehicle movements per peak hour during a typical weekday PM peak period, whilst preserving acceptable levels of service and queuing times into and out of the development as well as local roads that intersect with Clarkson Avenue. The aforementioned amendments to the initial design of the proposal included the deletion of the western-most crossover and the extension of the existing Clarkson Avenue median strip, which has been recommended as a condition of approval.  These changes are considered to have resulted in an improved outcome with regard to traffic movements immediately surrounding and within the subject site.

 

Administration notes that as the proposal would provide conveniences that do not currently exist elsewhere within the immediate locality, it is likely that a significant amount of the traffic generated by the proposal would already travel through the local road network to reach such conveniences elsewhere. While the proposal would result in an increase in the amount of traffic within the immediate vicinity, this was already anticipated and considered by Council as part of the rezoning of the land from Residential to Commercial through Amendment No. 12 to ASP 3.

With regard to the safety of children who attend St Stephens School, Clarkson Avenue is subject to a 40km/h speed limit during peak pick-up and drop-off periods. The volume of traffic anticipated along Clarkson Avenue, as a result of this development, is not considered to present an increased risk to the safety of children who attend St Stephens School.

Provision of Traffic Lights at Intersection of Clarkson Avenue and Wanneroo Road

Table F (Clause 5.1) of the draft Drovers Place Precinct Structure Plan No. 80 (SP 80) states that:


 

 

“If business development of Lots 1 and 132 is proposed, in accordance with the structure plan, a condition of such development shall be that the subdivider/developer of Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road in the Business Precinct, in consultation with MRWA, shall design and construct a fourway signal controlled intersection at the junction of Clarkson Avenue and Wanneroo Road, as indicated on Plan 1, to the specification and satisfaction of the City of Wanneroo.

 

Lot 19 Clarkson Avenue is located on the south-eastern corner of the abovementioned intersection, which is currently configured as an un-signalised ‘T-junction’ with left and right turn pockets off and onto Wanneroo Road.

 

A submission was received on this proposed development on behalf of the owners of Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road, stating that it would not be equitable for them to be solely responsible for the provision of traffic lights at the intersection, when a significant proportion of traffic through the intersection would be generated by the subject proposal. In response, the applicant’s transport consultants carried out a ‘SIDRA’ analysis of the intersection on a typical weekday between 3pm and 4pm (when significant traffic is generated by St Stephen’s School) to determine what impact the proposal would have on its performance. The analysis found that the intersection currently operates satisfactorily, with the worst level of service (‘C’) being reported for left and right turn movements from Clarkson Avenue. With the addition of traffic generated by the subject proposal, the level of service for all vehicle movements would remain the same, with the exception of right turns from Wanneroo Road into Clarkson Avenue, which would drop from ‘B’ to ‘C’. On that basis, it would appear that the development would not trigger the need for the provision of traffic lights at the intersection and that the traffic lights would only be required if Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road were developed in accordance with SP 80, to allow direct access into that area.

 

While the subject proposal does not trigger the need for traffic lights to be installed at the subject intersection, Administration acknowledges that the installation of the traffic lights would be of some benefit to the subject proposal, as well as other land owners within the local area. Notwithstanding this, Administration is of the view that SP 80 has been developed and progressed by the City on the basis that traffic lights would be provided at the cost of the owners of Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road, should they chose to develop their land for business uses.

 

Regardless, the requirement for traffic lights at the subject intersection was never raised as a consideration as part of Amendment No. 12 to ASP 3 (creating the commercial zone on Lot 19 Clarkson Avenue) and has only been raised subsequent to the progression of SP 80, which supported the expansion of the Central Precinct over Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road and introduced the traffic signals to facilitate this expansion (SP47 does not depict traffic signals in this location).

 

The Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) recently considered and adopted Structure Plan 80, subject to a number of modifications. Administration will report to Council on the WAPC’s modifications in due course, however, Administration can advise that the WAPC’s resolution of 10 April 2012 does not require any modifications to Table F (Clause 5.1) of the draft Drovers Place Precinct Structure Plan No. 80 (SP 80), which requires the landowner of Lots 1 and 132 Wanneroo Road to construct the signalised intersection.

 

Therefore, Administration considers it to be unreasonable to require the proponent of the subject application to contribute to the provision of the subject traffic lights.

Statutory Compliance

The application has been assessed in accordance with the City of Wanneroo’s District Planning Scheme No. 2.

Issue

To consider approval of subdivision retaining walls over 3.0 metres and up to 3.7 metres in height on Lot 122 Capricorn Esplanade, Yanchep (WAPC 143197).

 

Background

Council’s existing “Retaining Wall” policy provides that subdivisional retaining walls over 3.0 metres in height require consideration and approval by Council.

 

The subject land is located within the Capricorn Coastal Village Local Structure Plan No.44. On 12 November 2010, the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) granted subdivisional approval for nine residential lots ranging in size between 283m2 and 476m2 (WAPC 143197).

 

Engineering drawings have been submitted on behalf of the subdivider, depicting retaining walls over 3.0 metres in height.

Detail

The subdivider’s consulting engineer, Wood & Grieve Engineers Pty Ltd, on behalf of the developers Yanchep Development Pty Ltd c/o Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, has prepared design drawings including retaining walls exceeding 3.0 metres in heights for the subdivision of Lot 122 Capricorn Esplanade, Yanchep. Refer to Attachment 1 for the location plan, longsection plan and Attachment 2 for the elevation plan.

 

The consulting engineer’s justification for the proposed retaining walls exceeding 3.0 metres in height is summarised as follows:

 

The site is bounded by Lindsay Beach Boulevard to the south, Capricorn Esplanade to the west, Shoreview Lane to the east and vacant Lot 140 to the north. Existing pavement levels of Shoreview Lane govern adjacent levels of proposed rear access lots. To achieve level building platforms and flush vehicular crossovers, walls over
3 metres must be constructed along Capricorn Esplanade. The maximum wall height proposed is 3.7 metres at the intersection of Lindsay Beach Boulevard and Capricorn Esplanade. 

Furthermore, the provision for undercroft garages to 3 of the proposed lots also require large retaining structures to enable vehicular access from Lindsay Beach Boulevard. This is also shown in the Detailed Area Plan (DAP), (refer Attachment 2 for longsections of the relevant walls).”

Consultation

No consultation has occurred with other landowners as the retaining walls are not on a common boundary.

 

Comment

Administration has assessed and supports this proposal due to the need to accommodate the established ground levels surrounding the subject development

 

The design of retaining walls higher than 3.0 metres was instigated by the engineer, Wood & Grieve Engineers Pty Ltd to provide level blocks in an area where differential site levels cannot achieve retaining wall heights less than 3.0 metres. The existing road levels and approved Detailed Area Plan (DAP) constrain the development such that the retaining walls are the only practical solution.

 

The proposed walls comply with Council’s Draft Local Planning Policy 4.5 – Subdivision Retaining Walls, which is currently being advertised for public comment, (Item PS01-03/12 refers) and would be approved if that Policy were in place.

Statutory Compliance

A Building Licence will need to be granted separately prior to the construction of the proposed retaining walls.

Strategic Implications

The proposal accords with the following Outcome Objective of the City’s Strategic Plan 2006 – 2021:

 “1     Environment

1.3    Minimise impact of development on the environment

 

                   1.4     Improve the quality of the built environment

 

          2        Social

 

                   2.1 Increase choice and quality of neighbourhood and lifestyle options.

Policy Implications

This proposal has been processed in accordance with Council’s Retaining Wall Policy.

Recommendation

Issue

To consider for adoption the revised Customer Service Charter.

 

Background

The City’s current Customer Care Plan was endorsed at Ordinary Council Meeting on 10 June 2003 (CEO3-06/03). Although the City of Wanneroo has been achieving key aspects of the current Customer Care Plan since it was endorsed, it is timely to review and revitalise this publication to incorporate changing technology and customer needs.

 

The City has now revised and created a new Customer Service Charter (see Attachment 1), which portrays the City’s commitment to our customers to provide a high quality and efficient service that identifies the service standards expected of the City. This will be supported with full internal staff training and will be incorporated into the employee induction program.

Detail

The previous Customer Care Plan was developed following the introduction of several key systems to assist the organisation provide a high level of customer service and measure its success.  The Plan also focused on customer care values, with these values still being relevant however they do not match the overarching City of Wanneroo’s Values within the 2006-2021 Strategic Plan. 

 

The new Customer Service Charter focuses heavily on customer service commitments.  These service commitments are clear, simple and to the point, with an emphasis around the method of how customers contact the City.  These commitments are easily measured through performance reporting within various operational systems and through the bi-annual Community Satisfaction Survey.  The name change from Customer Care Plan to Customer Service Charter arises to follow industry trends. The new Customer Service Charter states that our commitment is to provide customers with high quality customer service standards which should be expected from the City of Wanneroo.

 

Following Council consideration and adoption, the Customer Service Charter will be used as a basis for internal customer service training and publicised widely to the community of the City of Wanneroo.  For the Customer Service Charter to progress effectively, it will be a framework guide to the City of Wanneroo in its management and handling of customer service standards.

Consultation

Extensive consultation within the organisation has occurred to develop the Customer Service Charter.  Representatives from all service units, including management levels, attended workshops and developed the Charter based on key operational and customer service principles. 

Comment

The Customer Service Charter supports the introduction of the new Compliments, Feedback and Complaints Policy adopted at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 6 March 2012 and its associated performance improvement processes outlined the Compliments, Feedback and Complaints Management Procedure.  The introduction of the Customer Service Charter will make it clear to both internal and external customers what the City of Wanneroo is committed to achieving, and will assist in reducing inefficient customer service and dissatisfaction to our customers.

Comment

In considering these applications for exemption, the following two options are available:

 

a)      Council may grant an exemption pursuant to Section 26(3) of the Dog Act 1976 subject to conditions; or

 

b)      Council may refuse permission to keep more than two dogs.

 

Application One: 3 Ashcott Gate, Butler

 

The applicant is seeking permission from the City to keep three dogs at 3 Ashcott Gate, Butler.  The applicants would like to keep three dogs temporarily until their son, his wife and their Toy Poodle establish a new home of their own.

 

A Ranger has inspected the property and confirmed it is adequate for the confinement and exercise of the dogs.  All fences are 1.8 metres in height with a gate of 1.8 metres in height in compliance with the residential requirements of the Dog Act 1976.  The dogs are kept in a medium sized yard and sleep in the house at night and no objections were received during the consultation process.

 

It is recommended that an exemption under section 26(3) of the Dog Act 1976 be granted.

 

Application Two: 2 Silverton Avenue, Butler

 

The applicant is seeking permission from the City to keep three dogs at 2 Silverton Avenue, Butler.  The applicants would like to keep three dogs as they have recently moved from the Shire of Gingin where their dogs have been registered since birth.

 

A Ranger has inspected the property and confirmed it is adequate for the confinement and exercise of the dogs.  All fences are 2.1 metres in height with a 2.1 metre gate in compliance with the residential requirements of the Dog Act 1976.  The dogs are kept in a large sized yard and sleep in the house or outside at night and no objections were received during the consultation process.

 

It is recommended that an exemption under section 26(3) of the Dog Act 1976 be granted.

 

Application Three: 2 Earl Court, Merriwa

One objection was received during the consultation process however, the objection came from the owners of the neighbouring property and not the occupiers. The objection was on the basis that the dogs bark when the property owners enter the back yard during rental inspections. As there has been no objections raised by the occupiers of neighbouring properties and there is no prior history of complaints relating to the dogs at 2 Earl Court, it is recommended that an exemption under section 26(3) of the Dog Act 1976 be granted.

 

Application Four: 41 Walyunga Boulevard, Clarkson

 

The applicant is seeking permission from the City to keep three dogs at 41 Walyunga Boulevard, Clarkson.  The applicants would like to keep three dogs after the third dog came to live with them when their step-daughter moved into rental accommodation that did not allow pets.

Issue

To consider the purchase of artworks for the City’s Art Collection and to review the successful six month Artist Residency for the City of Wanneroo by Textile Artist Wendy Lugg.

 

Background

The City of Wanneroo has over 200 artworks in its Art Collection including paintings, works on paper, photographs and small sculptures. The purpose of the Collection is to acquire and purchase artworks that provide a cultural and financial investment for the City. To do this, an annual budget is set aside for the acquisition of new artworks. The Art Collection Policy allows the CEO delegated authority to purchase artworks up to the value of $5,000 on recommendation of the Arts Development Officer. Artworks over this value are required to be recommended by the Arts Advisory Committee to Council by way of a formal report.

 

In 2011 the City of Wanneroo attracted a grant from the Community Arts Network WA for a series of workshops by artist Wendy Lugg and another grant for a residency component from the Department of Culture and the Arts. The City of Wanneroo then initiated its artist residency from August 2011 to March 2012 with Wendy, a Textile Artist of international standing.  Wendy produces uniquely Western Australian work and was inspired by the Wanneroo locality, its context of place and its history.

Detail

The Purchase of Artworks

In January and February of this year, the Arts Development Officer viewed numerous art galleries in Perth in order to make a shortlist of artworks to consider for this financial year’s acquisitions including Turner Galleries, Gallery East, Perth Galleries, FORM, Venn Galleries and Linton & Kay. The Arts Development Officer was also requested to visit local artist Glen Hughes to view a particular artwork.

 

This report details the option of purchasing a series of artworks, involving one single major artwork and two minor works of significance to Wanneroo.

 

Artist                             Title                                                                               Price

Stormie Mills                 The Fighter                                                                   $9,800

C. Glenn Hughes          Phil Renkin Portrait                                                      $1,000

Wendy Lugg                  Cockman House, Pappas Swamp, Beach Shack      $1,200

                                                                                                                  Total: $12,000

“The Fighter”, Stormie Mills

Stormie Mills is one of Western Australia’s most celebrated urban artists, who is widely known both nationally and internationally.

Stormie has a particular connection to Wanneroo being one of the original artists involved in the former City of Wanneroo’s Mural Arts program, which sought to beautify areas with high incidences of vandalism with “graffiti” art.

 

Since then Stormie has become a highly successful artist both with his work in murals and in a gallery setting. He uses a palette of grey, black, white and silver with his contemplative, quirky characters. The selected work is on paper and framed in a shadow box. It is a large and imposing artwork and is good value for an artist of Stormie’s standing. Due to the cost of this artwork, it requires the Arts Advisory Committee to recommend the purchase to Council for its approval.

 

“Phil Renkin Portrait”, C. Glen Hughes

Local artist Glen Hughes asked the late Phil Renkin, wearing all his military medals, to sit for a portrait after the Anzac Day service in 2010. This artwork is the result of that sitting. Glen has digitally manipulated the original image and printing it on archival paper, reworking the image with pencil and pastels to create a lovely soft image that is in keeping with Phil’s gentle persona. Phil Renkin was a key member of the Two Rocks community and was recognised by the naming of the Two Rocks Recreation Centre. The artist is a well known local artist and the City already has two of her artworks in the Collection (“Smoke Haze” and “After the Fire”).  

 

“Cockman House, Pappas Swamp, Beach Shack”, Wendy Lugg

Textile artist Wendy Lugg is an artist of international standing. Wendy was recently artist-in-residence at the City of Wanneroo where she conducted numerous workshops for the public and other interested groups while working with the Wanneroo Museum Collection to create a series of unique artworks. A series of three artworks were created and all three are being recommended for purchase. Wendy’s artworks are uniquely Wanneroo having worked directly with the City’s museum collection and will therefore add a depth to the Wanneroo story in the Art Collection. Original photographs have been printed on canvas and then worked into with stitches to tell a story of Quinns Beach, Cockman House and Pappas Swamp. 

 

The Artist Residency

The Artist Residency explored mark-making within fibre work as a reflection of a predominantly poor rural area, where historically the population embraced the concepts of “making do” and re-making or recycling. Traditional textiles from different cultures also provided inspiration and ideas, reflecting the cultural diversity of the Wanneroo region. As an example, an interested resident brought in her Macedonian traditional clothing and blanket to share and provide further inspiration for Wendy. Wendy recorded these fantastic textiles by photographing them.

 

Wendy engaged a large cross-section of the community for this project such as the Multicultural Women’s Sewing Group at Banksia Grove, the Craft Group at Hainsworth Community Centre, many long-term residents who have a long family connection in the area as well as the Wanneroo Historical Society, school groups and art groups at Yanchep. St Stephen’s School groups were inspired to take on projects after an artist’s visit. Many members of the general public took advantage of the contact hours with Wendy in January and during the two exhibitions, “Making Do” (November 2011) and “Fabric of Life” (February 2012) to further develop their own art practice.

 

The workshop series explored Wanneroo’s local identity and culture by interacting with and uncovering the stories of local identities. Traditionally an area of primary industry lacking in opportunities to become involved in cultural activities, the City utilised the residency to progress issues of social inclusion, diversity and empowerment through the arts; to develop a sense of community and mutual respect.

 

Artist Residency Exhibitions

As an integral part of the residency Wendy curated two exhibitions. The first “Making Do”, halfway through the residency, was a response to the museum collection, her research and her previous themes. The culminating exhibition “Fabric of Life” demonstrated more of Wendy’s journey during her residency. Through a selection of objects, historic photos, recreations like kangaroo skins, present day detailed photographs and her personal textile pieces, Wendy explored her responses to the history and culture of the Wanneroo community.

Consultation

Consultation regarding the purchase of artworks has been undertaken via the Arts Advisory Committee.

 

Within the Artist Residency, consultation was undertaken through an array of community engagement strategies used by the Artist Wendy Lugg. These included workshops, exhibitions, artist talks, open studios, meetings and morning teas. 

Comment

The Purchase of Artworks

The artworks presented at the Arts Advisory Committee Meeting on 17 April represent the what is on offer in Perth at the present time, within the constraints of the budget allocated. A balance of established artists and local interest is present in this range of artworks. Each work is a strong addition to the Art Collection and none duplicate any artwork already in the collection.

 

The Arts Advisory Committee supported the purchase of the two minor pieces (Glen Hughes and Wendy Lugg works) but did not support the purchase of the proposed major piece (“The Fighter” by Stormie Mills).  It has been recommended by the Arts Advisory Committee that other pieces identified now be further explored with regard to their availability and cost so that other purchases can be recommended to the Chief Executive Officer under delegated authority.

 

The Artist Residency

Wendy Lugg’s Artist Residency at the City of Wanneroo energised and inspired the local community. It achieved, with great success, the City’s aims and strategic objectives, in particular those relating to social outcomes in the City’s Strategic Plan. The City had designated an Artist Residency as a top priority and cultural imperative in its 2011 Strategic Plan for Community Capacity Building.

 

Programs, like Wendy Lugg’s Artist Residency, are geared towards creating cohesiveness and at the same time exploring the wonderful differences within the Wanneroo community.  The residency took significant steps to create real connections within the community utilising the museum collection and Wendy’s creative perspective. The residency has greatly assisted in consolidating the blossoming arts and cultural climate that is being established within the northern metropolitan region, especially with the establishment of Wanneroo Regional Museum and a purpose-built Gallery within the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre.

 

Wendy gained great insights into the composition of Wanneroo’s community by her involvement with the many facets, like:

 

·    the Multicultural Sewing Group

·    the local CWA, seniors groups and representatives of historically prominent local families

·    school groups: St Stephen’s School (secondary), Carramar

·    the Wanneroo Historical Society

·    the Hainsworth Craft Group

·    the Contemporary Quilt Group of WA Fibre and Textile Association

·    the annual Kidsfest event

·    interested artists in Yanchep

·    Noongar elder

·    the participants of the workshop series

·    interested residents, who took advantage of Wendy’s Open Studio contact hours.

 

 

Particular strengths of the Residency were its:

·    diversity of delivery, which included artist talks, visits, workshops, morning tea meetings, open studio (contact hours) and exhibitions

·    multi-faceted nature, linking history and heritage to new, unique self-expression;

·    inclusion of museum collection items and ability to display them in a new, interesting and culturally revealing way;

·    burgeoning connections; between people, their memories, museum objects, Wendy’s research and creativity, and resultant artwork;

·    cooperation and collaboration by staff at the City of Wanneroo;

·    ability to enthuse and inspire to lasting effect within the community. 

Statutory Compliance

The Chief Executive Officer has delegated authority to make purchases for the Art Collection to a maximum value of $5000 per item.  Items for consideration in excess of that value must be presented to the Arts Advisory Committee which then recommends to Council whether or not to proceed to acquisition.

Strategic Implications

The proposal accords with the following Outcome Objective of the City’s Strategic Plan 2006 – 2021:

 “2     Social

2.2    Improve the City’s identity and community well-being through arts, culture, leisure and recreation

Policy Implications

The acquisition of art is detailed in the City of Wanneroo Art Collection Policy, and the recommendations of this report are consistent with the requirements of the policy.

Financial Implications

In the 2011/2012 financial year a budget of $12,000 has been allocated.  Options for consideration by the Chief Executive Officer and Arts Advisory Committee/Council can be accommodated within this budget.

Voting Requirements

Issue

To consider applications from Community groups requesting funding through the City’s March 2012 Community Funding round for an upcoming project, activity or event.

 

Background

There are two funding rounds per financial year, in March and October.  This funding round represents the second for the 2011/12 financial year.  Assessment criteria and eligibility requirements are detailed in the City’s Community Funding Policy.  As this is not a Hallmark Funding round, only applications for Event Sponsorship or Community Development Funding are considered.

Detail

There were 18 applications received by the closing date of 30 March 2012.  Twelve of these applications were for Event Sponsorships and six were for Community Development.  In addition to the 18 applications, three deferred event sponsorship applications from the October 2011 Community Funding round are included and an early event sponsorship request from the Wanneroo Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade are included in this funding round to give a total of 22 applications.  The table below identifies the number of applicants received from each Ward:

The Community Funding Working Party met on Tuesday 24 April 2012.

 

A complete compilation of all applications and their relevant attachments has been provided to each member of the Community Funding Working group and is available in the Elected Members Reading Room.  A summary of each application is presented in Attachment 1.

 

It is noted that a total amount of $51,973.33 was requested from the 22 community organisations.  The average request for this funding round is $2,362.42.

 

It is also noted that of the 22 applications, five were for Christmas Carol events totalling $20,023.43 (38% of the total amount requested).  This is an average $4,004.68 per event.

 

Consultation

Nil

Comment

This is the first Community Funding round in which the City has implemented an electronic grants management system named “Smartygrants”.  To date the new system has proved to be an efficient and cost effective grants management system for the City.  The collation and reporting of applications has been expedited from weeks to days and alleviates printing and posting of most correspondence. 

 

In the March 2012 funding round, three of the eighteen applicants advised that they were uncomfortable with the new electronic grants system.  These applicants either arranged for a person outside their organisation to undertake the application form and/or met with the City’s Grants Officer for assistance.

 

To support applicants in future funding rounds the Grants Officer will arrange for computer training workshops at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre, three months prior to the closing date of each funding round.  The next training workshops have been booked for Tuesday 14 August 2012, 10:00am to 11:00am and Thursday 16 August 2012, 7:00pm to 8:00pm.

 

Under the new Smartygrants system Community Funding Application forms can only be accessed from the opening date of the funding round and not before.  To give applicants sufficient time to gather all required supporting documentation and submit their application on time, the Grants Officer, administrator of Smartygrants, will open each Community Funding round three months prior to the closing date of the Community Funding round.

 

Administration has assessed applications against the Community Funding Policy and has provided officer recommendations for each application.  The Community Funding Working Group has reviewed these recommendations as well as the application forms and has formed recommendations for each application.

Statutory Compliance

Strategic Implications

The proposal accords with the following Outcome Objective of the City’s Strategic Plan 2006 – 2021:

 “2     Social

2.2    Improve the City’s identity and community well-being through arts, culture, leisure and recreation

 

2.3     Improve the capacity of local communities to support each other.”

 

          “4      Governance

                   4.1     Improve strategic partnerships.

                   4.2     Improve community engagements.”

Policy Implications

Administration has only recommended approval of an application where the application fully complies with the policy.  The Working Group has chosen to support other applications where appropriate conditions are applied.

Financial Implications

Of the 22 applications received, 16 were Event Sponsorship applications requesting a total of $43,062.43 and six were Community Development applications requesting a total of $8,910.90.  The total requested funds in this round of Community Funding to be considered by the Working Group amounts to $46,973.33.

 

$5,000 has been paid to the Wanneroo Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade following Council resolution at the Ordinary Council meeting 06 March 2012 as follows: (MN01-03/12)

 

That Council ENDORSES an out of session Community Funding allocation of $5,000 for the Wanneroo Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade 50th Anniversary Celebration event through Community Event Sponsorship.

 

The March 2012 Community Funding round is funded through the 2011/12 adopted budget for Community Funding, account 717633-1205-316 which is:
