BRIEFING PAPERS

FOR ELECTED MEMBERS’

BRIEFING SESSION

 

Draft Only

 

 

 

 

 

to be held at

the Civic Centre,

Dundebar Rd, Wanneroo

on 27 January, 2015 commencing at 6.00pm


PROCEDURE FOR FULL COUNCIL BRIEFING

PRINCIPLES

A Council Briefing occurs a week prior to the Ordinary Council Meeting and provides an opportunity for Elected Members to ask questions and clarify issues relevant to the specific agenda items before council.  The briefing is not a decision-making forum and the Council has no power to make decisions.  The briefing session will not be used, except in an emergency, as a venue or forum through which to invoke the requirements of the Local Government Act 1995 and call a special meeting of Council.

 

In order to ensure full transparency the meetings will be open to the public to observe the process.  Where matters are of a confidential nature, they will be deferred to the conclusion of the briefing and at that point, the briefing session closed to the public.  The reports provided are the Officers’ professional opinions.  While it is acknowledged that members may raise issues that have not been considered in the formulation of the report and recommendation, it is a basic principle that as part of the briefing sessions Elected Members cannot direct Officers to change their reports or recommendations.

 

PROCESS

The briefing session will commence at 6.00 pm and will be chaired by the Mayor or in his/her absence the Deputy Mayor.  In the absence of both, Councillors will elect a chairperson from amongst those present.  In general, Standing Orders will apply, EXCEPT THAT Members may speak more than once on any item, there is no moving or seconding items, Officers will address the members and the order of business will be as follows:-

 

Members of the public present may observe the process and there is an opportunity at the conclusion of the briefing for a public question time where members may ask questions (no statements) relating only to the business on the agenda.   The agenda will take the form of:

Ø  Attendance and Apologies

Ø  Declarations of Interest

Ø  Reports for discussion

Ø  Tabled Items

Ø  Public Question Time

Ø  Closure

 

Where an interest is involved in relation to an item, the same procedure which applies to Ordinary Council meetings will apply.  It is a breach of the City’s Code of Conduct for an interest to not be declared.  The briefing will consider items on the agenda only and proceed to deal with each item as they appear.  The process will be for the Mayor to call each item number in sequence and ask for questions.  Where there are no questions regarding the item, the briefing will proceed to the next item.

 

AGENDA CONTENTS

While every endeavour is made to ensure that all items to be presented to Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting are included in the briefing papers, it should be noted that there will be occasions when, due to necessity, items will not be ready in time for the briefing session and will go straight to the Full Council agenda as a matter for decision.  Further, there will be occasions when items are TABLED at the briefing rather than the full report being provided in advance.  In these instances, staff will endeavour to include the item on the agenda as a late item, noting that a report will be tabled at the agenda briefing session.

 

AGENDA DISTRIBUTION

The Council Briefing agenda will be distributed to Elected Members on the FRIDAY prior to the Council Briefing session.  Copies will be made available to the libraries and the Internet for interested members of the public.  Spare briefing papers will be available at the briefing session for interested members of the public.

 

DEPUTATIONS

Deputations will generally not be heard prior to the Council Briefing session and are reserved for prior to the Ordinary Council meeting.

 

RECORD OF BRIEFING

The formal record of the Council Briefing session will be limited to notes regarding any agreed action to be taken by staff or Elected Members.  No recommendations will be included and the notes will be retained for reference and are not distributed to Elected Members or the public. 

 

LOCATION

The Council Briefing session will take place in the Council Chamber in the Civic Centre.

Agenda

 

Good evening Councillors, staff, ladies and gentlemen, we wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we are meeting on, the Whadjuk people.  We would like to pay respect to the Elders of the Nyoongar nation, past and present, who have walked and cared for the land and we acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contributions made to the life of this city and this region and I invite you to bow your head in prayer:

 

Lord, We ask for your blessing upon our City, our community and our Council.  Guide us in our decision making to act fairly, without fear or favour and with compassion, integrity and honesty.  May we show true leadership, be inclusive of all, and guide the City of Wanneroo to a prosperous future that all may share.  We ask this in your name. Amen

Issue

For Council to consider the rescission of Local Planning Policy 'Residential Guidelines Mindarie' (Policy) that applies to Lots 61-66 Toulon Circle, Mindarie and Lots 67-72 Anchorage Drive, Mindarie (policy area).

 

Background

The Policy was initially prepared to provide built form guidelines for residential development on 12 lots located at Lots 61-66 Toulon Circle, Mindarie and Lots 67-72 Anchorage Drive, Mindarie. The extent of the Policy area is shown on the plan included as Attachment 1.

 

The status of the 12 lots located within the Policy area is as follows:

 

·        Seven of the 12 lots within the Policy area contain dwellings that are completed;

·        One lot contains a dwelling that is under construction; and

·        Four lots are vacant, and are not subject to any current approvals.

 

The Policy was initially adopted on 1 July 1999; and after review in 2004, was again adopted by Council at its meeting of 14 December 2004 (PD01-12/04). This Policy is now scheduled for review.

Detail

The Policy is included as Attachment 2. Rather than undertake a further review of this Policy, Administration has considered that this Policy should be rescinded and replaced with a Detailed Area Plan.

 

Should Council resolve to rescind the Policy, Administration intends to certify the Detailed Area Plan included as Attachment 3 under Delegated Authority. It would then be the Detailed Area Plan that would enforce built form provisions; the same built form requirements as outlined in the existing Policy.

Consultation

Under the City's District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2), no consultation is required prior to Council rescinding a Local Planning Policy. However, once Council resolves to rescind a Local Planning Policy, it is required under Clause 8.11.4 of DPS 2 to publish notice of the rescission in two consecutive editions of a local newspaper circulating in the Scheme Area.

 

Given that the landowners within and surrounding the existing policy area may be affected by possible rescission of the Policy and the introduction of a Detailed Area Plan, Administration advertised the Detailed Area Plan for a period of 28 days as prescribed under the City of Wanneroo's 'Local Planning Policy 4.2: Structure Planning'. Letters were sent to landowners within the proposed Detailed Area Plan area, as well as landowners of land adjacent to the proposed Detailed Area Plan area. The advertising process advised these landowners that Administration are proposing to transfer the Policy requirements to a Detailed Area Plan, with the intention of rescinding the Policy. Submissions were invited from 4 November 2014 to 1 December 2014. In that time, no submissions were received.

Comment

Administration recommends that the Policy not be further reviewed, but rather rescinded so that a Detailed Area Plan can be certified. This is for the following reasons:

 

·        Administration has concluded that most of the Statement Items could be implemented as provisions of a Detailed Area Plan. Statement Items that relate to the subdivision are not required to be included on the Detailed Area Plan, as there is no potential to further subdivide the lots situated in the Policy area.

 

·        At the time the Policy was initially prepared, there were no provisions in the City's (then) Town Planning Scheme No. 1 (TPS 1) for the preparation of Detailed Area Plans. Therefore, at that time, the most appropriate method of achieving specific built form outcomes in a particular area was through a local planning policy. Similarly, during the review of the Policy in 2004, District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2), which at that stage had replaced TPS 1, did not contain provisions for the preparation of Detailed Area Plans. It was upon the adoption of Amendment No. 37 to DPS 2 in March 2006 (after the most recent review of the Policy) that introduced Clause 9.14 to DPS 2, which incorporated provision for DAP's to be considered and certified under DPS 2.

 

·        A DAP is a plan which enhances, elaborates and expands on the details or provisions contained in a proposed Structure Plan or Agreed Structure Plan and which provides a framework for future development. Therefore, a DAP is considered to be a more appropriate way of achieving the built form outcomes that the Policy currently attempts to achieve.

 

The certification of the Detailed Area Plan is not the subject of this Report, as Administration has Delegated Authority to certify the Detailed Area Plan.

Elected Members will be briefed on Administration intentions to certify the Detailed Area Plan in due course, should Council resolve to rescind this Policy.

Statutory Compliance

Rescission of Local Planning Policy 'Residential Guidelines Mindarie' is proposed to be carried out in accordance with Clause 8.11.4 of DPS 2.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “4     Civic Leadership - Working with others to ensure the best use of our resources.

4.2    Working With Others - The community is a desirable place to live and work as the City works with others to deliver the most appropriate outcomes.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

Local Planning Policy 'Residential Guidelines Mindarie' will have no further effect once it is rescinded.

Financial Implications

The costs associated with advertising the rescission of Local Planning Policy 'Residential Guidelines Mindarie' can be met from the Planning and Sustainability existing operational budget.

Voting Requirements

Simple Majority

 

Recommendation

That Council, pursuant to Clause 8.11.4 (b) of District Planning Scheme No. 2, RESCINDS Local Planning Policy 'Residential Guidelines Mindarie' as contained in Attachment 2, and PUBLISHES a formal notice of Council’s rescission of this Policy in all local newspapers circulating within the Scheme Area for two consecutive editions.

3.2    East Wanneroo Planning Process

Issue

To consider a proposed amendment to Local Planning Policy 5.3: East Wanneroo.

 

Background

Council adopted Local Planning Policy 5.3: East Wanneroo (LPP 5.3) at its meeting of 27 May 2014 (item PS01-05/14).  Attachment 1 of this report is a copy of LPP 5.3.  LPP 5.3 includes an eight step process for how the planning of the East Wanneroo area should be progressed (refer Attachment 2).

 

The first step in that process entails rezoning of the land designated as 'potential urban' under the East Wanneroo Structure Plan (EWSP) to Urban under the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS).  At the same time, step two in the process sees that land being rezoned to Urban Development under District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2), and Special Control Areas placed over the land under DPS 2.

 

At its Meeting of 16 September 2014 (item PS05-09/14), Council considered proposed Amendment 1263/57 to the MRS, which the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) had resolved to prepare and advertise for public comment.  This MRS Amendment was proposing to rezone nine properties on Dundebar Road, Wanneroo from Rural to Urban Deferred.

 

Council resolved to make a submission to the WAPC opposing the proposed MRS amendment, as it was contrary to the planning process proposed under LPP 5.3.

 

Council also resolved to seek to work with the WAPC and Department of Planning (DoP) to arrive at a shared approach for the planning of East Wanneroo based on LPP 5.3.

Detail

In accordance with Council's above resolution, Administration has undertaken discussions with representatives of the WAPC, DoP, as well as the Water Corporation, which has a key role in respect to infrastructure provision for the area.

 

The outcome of these discussions has been the preparation of a proposed modified, nine step planning process (refer Attachment 3). 

 

The proposed modified process is described in further detail in Table 1 of a proposed amended LPP 5.3 (refer Attachment 4).

 

The main differences from the current LPP 5.3 process are described below:

 

1.       Step 1 involves consideration of rezoning land to Urban Deferred instead of Urban.

 

2.       The applications for rezoning to Urban Deferred would be prepared and made to the WAPC by the City, instead of by the landowners and/or developers. 

 

3.       Rezoning to Urban at Step 5 (involving lifting of Deferment) would be on a 'Precinct'/Local Structure Plan (LSP) area basis, with the Precincts having been delineated in the District Structure Plans (DSP).

 

4.       Urban Development zoning under DPS 2 would occur later in the process (at the same time as lifting of Deferment) and would also be Precinct-based, rather than applying over the whole area at the outset.

 

5.       There would be no Special Control Areas (SCA) proposed, as the purpose of the SCAs would be met by the nature of the Urban Deferred zone itself (which is to recognise that though the land is identified for future urban use, this will only occur following the extension of urban services, the progressive development of adjacent urban areas, and the resolution of any environmental and planning requirements relating to development).

Consultation

Ongoing consultation is occurring with DoP and Water Corporation.

 

The proposed amendment to LPP 5.3 will be required to be advertised for public comment.  Letters and information sheets are intended to be sent to all affected landowners.  The proposed amendments to the MRS will also be advertised for public comment, subject to the Minister for Planning's consent.  This will be arranged by the WAPC.

Comment

The DSPs will provide the information such as environmental constraints and information required by the servicing agencies such as Water Corporation to prepare their infrastructure planning for the area, which will inform proposals for staging of development, and therefore also staging of lifting of Urban Deferment.

 

The proposed modified process should still adequately achieve the City's objective of LPP 5.3 in establishing a planning framework which will enable urban development to be able to occur in the area in an orderly and proper manner.  It is therefore recommended that Council adopt the proposed amended LPP 5.3 for the purpose of advertising.

 

While the main proposed changes to current LPP 5.3 relate to Table 1 of the LPP (which deals with the planning process), a number of other minor changes are also proposed to the initial parts of the LPP, and these are shown as 'tracked changes' in Attachment 5, and summarised below:

 

1.       Changes required as a result of the proposed Table 1 changes.  This relates to the changes proposed to the following clauses:

 

·                2.1.1 : to reflect the Table 1 references to 'What is involved in the undertaking of the Step'; 'Who is to do it';  'When is it to be done';  and 'Any prerequisites which may be involved'.

 

·                2.1.2 a) : to reflect the proposal in Steps 3 and 8 of Table 1 for landowners / developers/consultants to also prepare Development Contribution Plans (DCP).

 

·                2.1.2 b) : To change the Step numbers referred to, to accord with the relevant steps in proposed new Table 1.

 

·                2.1.2 b) : to refer to DCP at both District and local levels (rather than just District level).

 

 

·                2.2.1 : to refer to 'requirements', in addition to 'prerequisites'.

 

2.       Deletion of several paragraphs in the 'Application and Purpose' section of Part 1 which provide unnecessary background.  This relates to the second and third paragraphs of that section which refer to early Council resolutions dating back to December 2007 and April 2011.

 

3.       Deletion of Appendices 1 and 2 which are not really necessary.  These appendices showed examples of DSP and LSP maps which may be appropriate to this area.

 

Staging of Development

 

Ongoing discussion is occurring with DSP and servicing agencies in regard to staging of development.

 

It should also be noted in this regard that LPP 5.3 cannot in any way commit the WAPC in any of its decision making processes.

 

Information for East Wanneroo Landowners

 

It is intended that when the proposed amended LPP 5.3 is advertised for public comment, a letter and comprehensive information sheet be sent to all landowners to ensure that they are properly informed on the matter.

Statutory Compliance

Clause 8.11.3 of DPS 2 sets out the process for amending LPPs.  This starts with Council adopting the proposed amended LPP for advertising for public comment for a period of at least 21 days.  Given the high level of public interest in this matter, a comment period of 42 days is recommended in this instance.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “2     Society - Healthy, safe, vibrant and active communities.

2.1    Great Places and Quality Lifestyle - People from different cultures find Wanneroo an exciting place to live with quality facilities and services.

 

          "4.     Civic Leadership – Working with others to ensure the best use of our resources.

 

                   4.2    Working with others.  The community is a desirable place to live and work as the City works in partnership with others to deliver the most appropriate outcomes."

Risk Management Considerations

The amendment proposed to LPP 5.3 would mean that the City be the applicant/proponent for the two MRS amendments to rezone East Wanneroo to Urban Deferred.  While proposed LPP 5.3 assumes that those applications be prepared at a high/'desk-top' level, there is a risk that the relevant State approval agencies might require that the applications be supported by a more detailed level of information, requiring possible further technical studies.  This would have resource implications for the City.  Given that it is considered unlikely that these events will occur, and that even if they did, the City is able to withdraw the applications and no longer be the proponent, the significance of this risk is considered low.

 

There is a reputational risk to the City if it seeks to implement a planning process for this area which is not able to proceed due to it not having the required support of the State planning agencies.  The amended process proposed by this report will mitigate this risk by involving a process which aims to have the support of those agencies.

Should the above events eventuate, then the City can either consider allocating resources (which can subsequently be recouped through the proposed Development Contribution Plans) to the completion of the necessary studies, or it can withdraw the applications and its role as proponent for them; and leave the landowners/developers to undertake this role.

Policy Implications

LPP 5.3 forms part of the City's Local Planning Policy Framework so any modifications to LPP 5.3 will mean a change to that Framework.

Financial Implications

The advertising costs associated with amending LPP 5.3 can be met from the Planning and Sustainability operational budget.

 

The proposed changes to LPP 5.3 should not mean any changes in respect to the financial implications which are associated with current LPP 5.3, other than in relation to the proposal for the City to prepare the two MRS amendment applications for rezoning to Urban Deferred.  However, those applications are intended to be prepared at a high level, not involving any additional technical studies, and the small cost involved will be able to be met from the Planning and Sustainability operational budget.

Voting Requirements

Simple Majority

 

Recommendation

That Council, pursuant to Clause 8.11.3.1 (a) of District Planning Scheme No. 2, ADOPTS the draft amendments to Local Planning Policy 5.3: East Wanneroo as contained in Attachment 4 for the purpose of advertising, and ADVERTISES it for public comment for a period of 42 days by way of:

1.      Advertisement in all local newspapers circulating with the City of Wanneroo for two (2) consecutive editions;

2.      Display at the City's Administration Centre Building, City Libraries and on the City's website;  and

3.      Written notification to all affected landowners and other relevant stakeholders and government agencies, as determined by the Director, Planning and Sustainability.

Town Planning Schemes & Structure Plans

3.3    Adoption of Local Structure Plan No. 92 - Woodland Vista, Carramar

File Ref:                                              7535 – 14/358939

Responsible Officer:                           Director Planning and Sustainability

Disclosure of Interest:                         Nil

Attachments:                                       4         

 

Issue

To consider submissions on the proposed Woodland Vista, Carramar Local Structure Plan No. 92 (LSP 92) to determine its acceptability for final approval and forwarding to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) for endorsement.

 

Applicant

Burgess Design Group

Owner

Woodland Consortium Pty Ltd

Location

Lot 51 (575) Flynn Drive, Carramar

Site Area

3.0302ha

MRS Zoning

Urban

DPS 2 Zoning

Urban Development

 

 

Background

Proposed LSP 92 was originally submitted on 22 May 2012, but as the structure plan area was subject to a pending Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) amendment to rezone the site from Rural to Urban at the time, consideration of the structure plan prior to the finalisation of the MRS amendment was considered premature.

 

The structure plan area was rezoned from Rural to Urban under the MRS upon gazettal on 1 October 2013. Concurrently, the site was rezoned from Special Rural to Urban Development under the City's District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2). The Urban Development zone requires the preparation of a structure plan to guide the subdivision and development of the land, in accordance with Clause 3.13.3 of DPS 2, and as such it was appropriate to consider the lodged structure plan at this time.

 

The structure plan, as originally lodged, required additional information and format changes prior to consideration of advertising. These changes were subsequently made, and the proposal was deemed sufficient for the purposes of advertising.

 

On 12 June 2014, the former Director, Planning and Sustainability forwarded a memorandum to all Elected Members, providing the opportunity for members to request referral of the proposal to Council for consent to advertise.  No such requests were received and, as such, advertising of LSP 92 commenced on 15 July 2014 in accordance with Clause 9.5 of District DPS 2 and closed on 26 August 2014.

Detail

Site

The structure plan covers Lot 51 (575) Flynn Drive, Carramar, a triangular shaped lot encompassing a total area of approximately 3 hectares. The site is bound by Wanneroo Road to the west, Flynn Drive (in its existing alignment) to the north, and Lots 1 and 2 Flynn Drive to the east, which are subject to Agreed Structure Plan No. 61 (ASP 61). The subject land is zoned Urban under the MRS and Urban Development under DPS 2. A location plan is included as Attachment 1.

Wanneroo Road is classified as a Primary Distributor Road where it abuts the structure plan area. Flynn Drive is classified as a Regional Distributor Road, however, future realignment of Flynn Drive will result in a signalised intersection with Wanneroo Road approximately 600m to the north of the site and the existing alignment of Flynn Drive, which is subsequently intended to be converted to a cul-de-sac.

Proposal

The draft LSP 92, as shown in Attachment 2, has been prepared to provide the broad planning framework to facilitate development of the area and to satisfy the requirements of DPS 2.   The site is proposed to be zoned Residential, with a density code range of R20 to R30.

 

LSP 92 will guide the subdivision and development of the land, by providing the framework for the creation of the following:

 

·        Residential zoned lots at R20 and R30 densities;

·        Proposed public open space (POS), equating to 10% or greater of the subdivisible area; and

·        Drainage area proposed at the southernmost point of the site.

Consultation

The draft LSP was advertised for public comment for a period of 42 days by means of an on-site sign, an advertisement in the Wanneroo Times newspaper, a notice on the City’s website and letters written to adjoining landowners.  The submission period closed on 26 August 2014, with seven submissions being received.  A summary of submissions received and Administration's responses to these is included in Attachment 3.

 

The main issues raised during the advertising period and following detailed assessment by Administration relate to:

 

·        The proposed structure plan format;

·        Proposed densities across the site; and

·        The provisions and mitigation measures contained within the associated Bushfire Management Plan, which was submitted by the proponent as Appendix 5 to Part 3 of draft LSP 92.

 

A more detailed discussion of the major issues considered in the assessment of draft LSP 92 is provided in the Comment section.

Comment

Structure Plan Format

 

The format of the proposed structure plan Part 1 (Statutory Section) is in line with that set out in the City's Local Planning Policy 4.2: Structure Planning (LPP 4.2). Notwithstanding, it is considered appropriate to bring the format of the proposed structure plan in line with that of the Western Australian Planning Commission's (WAPC) Structure Plan Preparation Guidelines, which will provide continuity with other recently endorsed structure plans within the City. It is noted that the City's LPP 4.2 is currently under review to update the policy and bring it in line with the WAPC's Structure Plan Preparation Guidelines.

 

Further to the format of Part 1, Administration recommends detailed information be removed from the structure plan map, in accordance with the WAPC's Structure Plan Preparation Guidelines.

Such information to be removed includes, but is not limited to, road layouts, POS location, and drainage. The removal of these details at the structure plan stage will allow for a more flexible and adaptable design approach at the subdivision stage, rather than designating specific road locations and lot layouts at this stage of the planning process. In the past, other structure plans proposing a high level of detail on the structure plan map have been subject to structure plan amendments subsequently, as a result of minor inconsistencies or design changes at the subdivision stage.

 

These modifications to the proposed structure plan, as well as Administration's reasons for these modifications are further detailed in Attachment 4.

 

Proposed Density

 

Draft LSP 92 currently proposes specific residential density codes (R-Codes) over the site; predominantly R20, with an area of R30 adjacent to the proposed POS and indicative laneway lots. Several submissions received raised concerns regarding the appropriateness of the proposed densities.

 

The subject site was rezoned from Rural to Urban as part of Amendment 1244/57 to the MRS. As part of this amendment process, it was indicated in the amendment report that the intended density of the site would range between R20 and R40. As the site was concurrently zoned Urban Development (which requires a structure plan to be in place to guide development and subdivision) under the City's DPS 2 rather than a zoning such as Residential, no density code was allocated under the amendment process.

 

Having due regard to the intended density throughout the amendment process, the proposed density is also considered appropriate in the context of the urban nature of the site, and the density range of the adjoining ASP 61 area (Special Residential R5, and Residential R20 – R50). The proposed densities of R20 and R30 are also consistent with the general density requirements of the WAPC's Directions 2031 and Beyond plan which recommends aiming for 15 dwellings per gross hectare; the current proposal has the potential to achieve approximately 14 dwellings per urban zoned hectare.

 

Notwithstanding Administration's support of the densities proposed by draft LSP 92 as detailed above, it is considered appropriate to remove the specific R-Code densities shown, which are delineated by the proposed road network, and instead incorporate an overall zoning and R-Coding of Residential R20/R30 over the structure plan area. The overall R-Coding will allow for a flexible detailed design approach of the site at the subdivision stage. The proposed modification will enable site-responsive design and densities at the subdivision stage, having due regard to the final road layouts, POS location and other design details.

 

As part of recommended Administration modifications within Attachment 4, guidance on the proposed split coding of R20/R30 will be provided in Part 1, with a base density of R20, and R30 being permitted where lots directly abut or are located adjacent to POS.

 

Bushfire Management Plan

 

A Bushfire Management Plan (BMP) was included as Appendix 5 of the Part 3 Technical Appendices of LSP 92, which provide supporting documentation for the statutory provisions contained within Part 1 of the LSP. BMP is a detailed document that sets out medium to long-term mitigation strategies for managing bushfire hazards and risk which is ongoing for the life of the development, and generally includes a Bushfire Hazard Assessment (BHA).  A BHA provides a measure of the likely intensity of a bushfire – whether from within or from outside the subject area – and the likely level of bushfire attack on a subdivision and related development by categorising and mapping land as having a low, moderate or extreme bushfire hazard level.

 

The draft BMP submitted, including the BHA contained within, is largely dependent upon the clearing of vegetation from adjacent sites (being ASP 61 and the Neerabup National Park). This dependency on third party clearing and development does not provide any certainty for the BHA and potential bushfire attack levels. Further to this, the draft BHA as submitted does not provide sufficient detail regarding emergency access provision onto Wanneroo Road.  It is a requirement under draft State Planning Policy 3.7 – Planning for Bushfire Risk Management (SPP 3.7) and the WAPC's Planning for Bushfire Protection Guidelines that  two different vehicular access routes, both of which connect to the public road network, are available to all residents/the public at all times.  The emergency access has not been detailed adequately in regards to specific location and minimum requirements of physical construction (e.g. width, provision of gates etc) within the BHA. As such, Administration and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) do not support the draft BMP as submitted.

 

Given that Administration and DFES are not satisfied with the current content of the BMP, Administration considers it appropriate to designate the entire structure plan area, through a provision contained within Part 1 of LSP 92 and a designation on the structure plan map, as a 'Bushfire Prone Area'.

 

A Bushfire Prone Area is one identified either by a Local Government Bushfire Map, a State Bushfire-Prone Area Map or, in the absence of either of these maps, any land within 100 metres of an area of bushfire-prone vegetation equal to or greater than one hectare. Given that the site is within 100m of Neerabup National Park and the retained vegetation within ASP 61, it is considered appropriate to classify the structure plan area as Bushfire Prone. Identification of an area as being bushfire-prone is not in itself an indication of bushfire risk. Rather, it will initiate the need for a landowner to further assess the level of risk through a BMP, BHA and/or Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) assessment.

 

This process will allow for more appropriate bushfire mitigation measures and actions to be detailed in a revised BMP to be submitted to the City and DFES prior to subdivision occurring, once detailed designs are known and alternative bushfire mitigation measures are able to be considered. This approach is considered to be consistent with the requirements of SPP 3.7.

Conclusion

Considering the above comments, the draft LSP 92 is considered to be acceptable, subject to modifications contained in Attachments 3 and 4, as the proposal provides the broad planning framework to facilitate future development and subdivision of the structure plan area.

Statutory Compliance

This structure plan has been processed in accordance with the requirements of DPS 2.  Clause 9.6.1 of DPS 2 provides that following advertisement of a structure plan, Council may refuse to adopt the structure plan or resolve that the structure plan is satisfactory with or without modifications. It is recommended that LSP 92 be approved with modifications.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “2     Society - Healthy, safe, vibrant and active communities.

2.1    Great Places and Quality Lifestyle - People from different cultures find Wanneroo an exciting place to live with quality facilities and services.

 

Risk Management Considerations

No risks are associated with the adoption of draft LSP 92.

Policy Implications

Administration's assessment of draft LSP 92 has been undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the City's Local Planning Policies, in particular Local Planning Policy 4.2 – Structure Planning (LPP 4.2), Local Planning Policy 4.3: Public Open Space (LPP 4.3), Local Planning Policy 3.1: Local Housing Strategy (LPP 3.1) and Local Planning Policy 4.4: Urban Water Management (LPP 4.4)

Background

On 16 April 2014, TPG Town Planning, Urban Design and Heritage (the applicant), on behalf of Wyatt Grove Development Pty Ltd lodged proposed Amendment No. 32 to ASP 6 and Amendment No. 2 to ASP 42 with the City.

 

The Amendment area relates to the site commonly known as the Wyatt Grove Shopping Centre (WGSC). The site is bound by Gungurru Avenue to the north, Wyatt Road to the east, Nicholas Road to the south, and residential properties along Verteramo Way to the west. A location plan is included as Attachment 1.

 

The site is zoned Centre under ASP 6 and Commercial with a density coding of R40 under ASP 42. The site is subject to two Structure Plans as the site is zoned Centre under ASP 6, which under Clause 9.11.1 of District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2) requires the preparation and adoption of an Agreed Structure Plan prior to the commencement of development. As such ASP 42 was prepared and adopted by the WAPC on 20 May 2004.

 

There have been multiple Planning Approvals issued for the site, specifically being four stages of development which are outlined below.

 

·    Stage 1 of WGCS (DA2012/1371) was approved by the City on 9 April 2013, incorporating the following:

-     15 tenancies (can be retail or non-retail land uses);

-     Liquor store;

-     Supermarket (Woolworths);

-     Landscaping; and

-     Carparking and vehicle/pedestrian access ways.

 

·    Stage 2 (DA2013/706) was approved by the City on 26 July 2013, incorporating the addition of a Medical Centre and an Office.

 

·    Stage 3 (DA2013/823) was approved by the City on 6 August 2013, incorporating the addition of a Recreation Centre and a Medical Centre.

 

·    Stage 4 (DA2014/894) was approved by the City on the 19 September 2014, incorporating four additional tenancies (which can be retail or non-retail land uses) and underground carparking.

 

Breach of Previous Planning Approval Conditions

 

In response to numerous enquiries and complaints received by the City, during and following the construction of the WGSC development, Administration has investigated alleged breaches and non-compliance with Planning Approval DA2012/1371. As part of this investigation, a compliance audit of the WGSC was undertaken to determine the extent of non-compliance with the conditions of Planning Approval DA2012/1371. Of the 28 conditions imposed as part of this Planning Approval, it was identified that 12 conditions had not been met and were outstanding.

 

These outstanding conditions of Planning Approval have since been addressed by the developer and resolved to the satisfaction of the City, with the exception of the following:

 

1.   The lodgement of a deposited plan which includes an easement in-gross for the carparking and vehicular access ways; and the provision of a truncation on the corner of Wyatt Road and Gungurru Avenue; and

 

2.   The relocation of a lightpole which is currently within the footpath along Nicholas Road.

 

In regards to the first of these outstanding matters, a draft deposited plan has been provided to the City for its information. The developer is currently preparing the deposited plan and its supporting documents to submit to the City for review and execution. Following this, the deposited plan is required to be lodged by the developer with Landgate for approval.

 

In regards to the second outstanding matter, Western Power is required to approve the relocation of the lightpole. To relocate a lightpole, Western Power requires a letter of support from the City as part of its assessment process. The City has issued a letter of support for the relocation of the lightpole, and the developer is currently liasing with Western Power to obtain its approval.

 

In light of the above, the outstanding issues of non-compliance are currently being addressed by the developer. Once these matters have been resolved, the WGSC will be fully compliant with Planning Approval DA2012/1371. Notwithstanding this, these issues of non-compliance with Planning Approval DA2012/1371 do not have any bearing on the determination of the proposed Amendments.

Detail

Amendment No. 32 to ASP 6 and Amendment No. 2 to ASP 42 proposes to increase the permitted retail net lettable area (NLA) from 4,250m2 to 5,500m2. The proposed Amendments are included as Attachment 2.

 

As the permitted retail floorspace is reflected in both ASP 6 and ASP 42, it is necessary to simultaneously amend the retail floorspace allocated for the Hocking Neighbourhood Centre in both Agreed Structure Plans.

 

DPS 2 provides the following definition of retail net lettable area:

 

 

"retail net lettable area: means the nettable area used for any of the purposes listed in Planning Land Use Category 5 – Shop/Retail (excluding hotels, taverns and nightclubs) of the WA Standard Land Use Classification (WASLUC)."

 

The proposed Amendments are intended to allow for additional shop-retail (PLUC 5) land uses to be accommodated in the existing WGSC. Shop-retail is defined in the WASLUC as "any activity which involves the sale of goods from a shop located separate to and/or in a shopping centre." Currently the shop-retail land uses approved on the site that contribute to the retail NLA are Beauty Parlour, Hardware Store, Liquor Store, Pharmacy, Shop, and Supermarket.

 

The applicant has identified 996m2 (five tenancies) of existing floorspace that was planned to accommodate commercial land uses. Commercial land uses are not defined in the WASLUC. However, based on the definitions within the WASLUC, commercial land uses would typically involve entertainment, administrative, clerical and professional activities. The approved commercial land uses on the site are Bank, Dry Cleaner, Laundromat, and Office. 

 

It is intended that existing vacant tenancies on the site will accommodate additional shop-retail land uses should the proposed Amendments be adopted.

Consultation

On 12 June 2014, the Manager, Planning Implementation, forwarded a memorandum to all Elected Members, providing the opportunity for members to request referral of the proposal to Council prior to advertising. No such requests were received and, as such, advertising of Amendment No. 32 to ASP 6 and Amendment No. 2 to ASP 42 commenced on 15 July 2014 in accordance with Clause 9.5 of District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DSP 2).

 

The Amendments were advertised for public comment for a period of 42 days by means of an on-site sign, an advertisement in the Wanneroo Times newspaper, notice on the City’s website and letters written to adjoining landowners. The submission period closed on 26 August 2014, with six submissions being received; five of which objected to the proposed Amendments. A summary of submissions received and Administration's responses are shown in Attachment 3.

 

The main issues raised during the advertising period relate to the following:

 

3.   Demand for additional retail floorspace; and

 

4.   Impact of increased traffic in the locality.

 

A more detailed discussion of these main issues is provided in the Comment section.

Comment

Demand for Additional Retail Floorspace

 

A number of submissions were received during the public consultation period which objected to the increase in retail floorspace at the WGSC, on the basis that it is not necessary. The applicant's rationale for the proposed increased retail floorspace for the WGSC is based on a lack of interest in leasing commercial tenancies at the centre. The justification for the additional retail floorspace, and the impact that this additional retail floorspace may have on the surrounding centres, is discussed below.

 

A Retail Sustainability Assessment (RSA) has been prepared by Urbis on behalf of the applicant.

 

This RSA shows that between April and December 2013, 47 of total of 69 enquiries (68%) received by the leasing agent expressed interest for tenancies that can accommodate shop-retail land uses. The remaining enquiries were regarding non-retail land uses, including only one enquiry (less than 2%) regarding a commercial land use. Also, the majority of the retail floorspace, being 4,140m2 of WGSC's permitted 4,250m2 is already occupied. This demonstrates that there is a demand for additional shop-retail tenancies at the WGSC. The additional floorspace will allow for existing tenancies to be occupied with shop-retail land uses, rather than remain unoccupied due to the lack of market interest and demand, specifically for commercial tenancies. 

 

In considering the proposed increased in retail floorspace at the WGSC, it is also prudent to consider the impact that this may have on other centres within the Main Trade Area (MTA). The MTA is the geographical area which is served by the WGSC. Aside from the WGSC, other shopping centres located within the MTA are Wanneroo Central, located approximately 2 km to the north, and Pearsall Neighbourhood Centre, located approximately 1 km to the south of WGSC (the MTA is shown in Attachment 4).

 

The RSA has projected that the potential impact of the additional retail floorspace will reduce the retail turnover of Wanneroo Central and Pearsall Neighbourhood Centre by less than 1%. These impacts have been independently tested by the City's external consultant.  These impacts are negligible, and are not considered to adversely affect the performance of these other centres.

 

The RSA demonstrates that the proposed increase of retail floorspace is justified as there is currently a significant demand from businesses to occupy tenancies that can accommodate shop-retail land uses within the WGSC. In addition, the proposal will have a negligible impact on the surrounding centres within the MTA. Based on this, the demand to increase the retail floorspace is acknowledged and is supported by Administration.

 

The Impact of Increased Traffic

 

A number of submissions were received during the public consultation period regarding the impacts of increased traffic as a result of the proposed Amendments. As a result of these, a Transport Assessment Report (TAR) was prepared by Uloth and Associates on behalf of the applicant.

 

The TAR assesses the impacts of increased traffic on the surrounding road network as a result of the proposed Amendments. Currently, the WGSC generates an estimated 3,450 vehicle trips per day (vtpd) on a Thursday. Under the WAPC's Transport Assessment Guidelines for Developments, Thursday and Saturday mornings are considered to be the two peak times for residential and employment-based land uses. These guidelines advise that for developments close to schools, or where traffic from a development would pass close to a school, it may be appropriate for the assessment to be undertaken during the week, as this would have greater impact on traffic as opposed to a Saturday. As Hocking Primary School is located 70m to the west of the WGSC, it is considered appropriate that the survey was carried out on a Thursday.

 

A fully tenanted WGSC with 4,250m2 of retail floorspace is projected to generate a total of 5,610 vtpd. As a result of the proposed Amendments, it is anticipated that the WGSC would generate an additional 670 vtpd. This would result in a total of 6,280 vtpd, and equates to an increase of 12% in vehicle movements on the surrounding roads. This is considered acceptable when assessing the capacity of the surrounding roads against the WAPC's Liveable Neighbourhoods Policy (LN), as detailed below.

 

 

 

 

The road network surrounding the subject site is made up of Gungurru Avenue (to the north), Wyatt Road (to the west) and Nicholas Road (to the south). For the purposes of the TAR, Gungurru Avenue has been separated into two sections (as shown in Attachment 5):

 

·        The eastern section extends for 30m between Wyatt Road and the eastern crossover to the site along Gungurru Avenue. This section has only two dwellings which gain primary access from Gungurru Avenue; and

 

·        The western section is located between the easternmost crossover to the WGSC along Gungurru Avenue and the intersection with Verteramo Way. This section includes traffic generated by the adjacent primary school, and eight dwellings which have their access onto Gungurru Avenue located opposite the WGSC.

 

The western section of Gungurru Avenue is considered the critical section due to the eight dwellings and the school generating higher levels of traffic in addition to the WGSC compared to the eastern section of Gungurru Avenue.

 

The current and proposed capacity of the surrounding roads is shown in the table below.

As shown above, the estimated volume for Wyatt Road, Nicholas Road, and the western section of Gungurru Avenue remains within the LN indicative traffic volumes. Under LN, the indicative volume only provides a guide of acceptable traffic levels. Acceptable traffic volumes are also to be determined on a case-by-case basis depending on the traffic volume and through traffic requirements of the streets.

 

The eastern section of Gungurru Avenue has an estimated 3,550 vtpd, which exceeds the 3,000 vtpd indicative volume. The TAR indicates that the volume of traffic on this eastern section of Gungurru Avenue is primarily vehicles accessing the subject site via the easternmost crossover. As a result of this, only a small portion of vehicles travelling east along Gungurru Avenue will continue through to Wyatt Road. Similarly, only a small portion of vehicles travelling along Wyatt Road will travel through to the western section of Gungurru Avenue. Given this lack of through traffic, the additional vehicle movement as a result of the proposed Amendments are considered to have a negligible impact on the existing traffic movements along Gungurru Avenue. As such, the critical section of Gungurru Avenue remains within the LN indicative volume for an Access Street A.

 

State Planning Policy 4.2 – Activity Centres for Perth and Peel

 

The subject site is considered a Neighbourhood Centre under the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) State Planning Policy 4.2 – Activity Centres for Perth and Peel (SPP 4.2).

 

 

 

 

The main function of a Neighbourhood Centre under SPP 4.2 is to provide for daily and weekly household shopping needs, community services and a small range of other convenience services.

 

The proposed Amendments are consistent with the objectives of SPP 4.2 and enable the WGSC to fulfil its function as a Neighbourhood Centre.

 

SPP 4.2 encourages a mix of land uses within centres to provide for a diversity and intensity of activity within the locality. A Neighbourhood Centre typically features supermarket/s, personal services and convenience shops. The WGSC provides a variety of land uses, such as those that have been previously approved for the centre under DA2013/1371.

 

The proposed Amendments enhance the ability of the WGSC to provide for diversity in activity. By increasing the permissible retail floorspace, additional shop-retail land uses will be able to occupy vacant tenancies, which can contribute to the diversity of activity within the WGSC. This is not currently possible, as the current maximum retail floorspace requirement has also been reached. As such, the proposed Amendments are considered to be consistent with SPP 4.2.

 

Local Planning Policy 3.2 – Activity Centres

 

The City of Wanneroo's Local Planning Policy 3.2 – Activity Centres, requires planning proposals for Centres to:

 

·        Provide access to a range of employment opportunities;

 

·        Not prejudice long term planning of centres; and

 

·        Encourage centres to evolve over time to fulfil their role within the SPP 4.2 hierarchy.

 

In respect to these considerations, Administration provides the following comments:

 

·        The RSA has demonstrated that the increased retail floorspace could provide an additional 83 jobs at the WGSC than if tenancies that were intended to accommodate commercial land uses remain vacant. In turn, this will provide additional employment opportunities within the locality.

 

·        The additional retail floorspace proposed will not prejudice the long term planning of the centre, as commercial land uses are still capable of operating within the WGSC.

 

·        The proposed Amendments encourage the evolution of the Neighbourhood Centre by allowing for flexibility in leasing of vacant tenancies. This will enable the WGSC to grow and mature in response to market demand.

 

Given this, the proposed Amendments are considered to be consistent with the objectives of LPP 3.2. 

 

Conclusion

 

In light of the above, Administration considers the proposed Amendments are acceptable for the following reasons:

 

·        It has been demonstrated that there is a significant demand for additional retail floorspace at the Wyatt Grove Shopping, while having a negligible impact on nearby centres;

 

 

·        The surrounding road network is considered capable of supporting the additional vehicles, and will have a negligible impact on traffic within the area; and

 

·        The proposed Amendments are compliant with the requirements of both SPP 4.2 and LPP 3.2.

Statutory Compliance

These Structure Plan Amendments have been processed in accordance with the requirements of DPS 2. Clause 9.6.1 of DPS 2 provides that following advertisement of a Structure Plan Amendment, Council may refuse to adopt the amendment or resolve that the amendment is satisfactory with or without modifications. It is recommended that Amendment No. 32 to the East Wanneroo Cell 4 (Hocking and Pearsall) Agreed Structure Plan 6 and Amendment No. 2 to the Hocking Neighbourhood Centre Agreed Structure Plan No. 42 be approved without modifications.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “2     Society - Healthy, safe, vibrant and active communities.

2.1    Great Places and Quality Lifestyle - People from different cultures find Wanneroo an exciting place to live with quality facilities and services.

Issue

To consider initiating an amendment to District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2) to recode the Wanneroo and Girrawheen-Koondoola housing precincts identified in Local Planning Policy 3.1: Local Housing Strategy Implementation (LPP 3.1) and introduce corresponding provisions that apply to these areas.

 

 

Background

The City of Wanneroo Local Housing Strategy, which was adopted in 2005, analysed existing residential development within the City of Wanneroo and identified several precincts that could be redeveloped by increasing residential density.

 

LPP 3.1 was adopted in 2010 to define the boundaries of these housing precincts, identify the extent of potential density increases in these areas and provide guidance on the process for implementing the residential density increases in an orderly way. A subsequent amendment to LPP 3.1 was adopted in 2011, which expanded the areas to be recoded.

 

LPP 3.1 prioritises the Wanneroo and Girrawheen-Koondoola housing precincts as priority one and two for implementation, and requires the following three key issues to be addressed prior to, or as part of, a scheme amendment to increase the R-Coding in these areas:

 

1.   Assess the existing infrastructure provision and identify infrastructure upgrades needed to facilitate redevelopment at a higher density;

 

Following the adoption of the amended LPP 3.1, Administration engaged consultants to assess the capacity of the road, water and sewer networks and their ability to accommodate the higher densities proposed for the housing precincts. These desktop studies concluded that the following infrastructure upgrades may be required to achieve full development in the housing precincts:

 

·    Nine upgrades to Wanneroo Road to be funded by Main Roads WA;

·    Nine road upgrades to local and neighbourhood roads;

·    A main sewer in Girrawheen to be funded by the Water Corporation; and

·    Numerous upgrades to local water and sewer infrastructure.

 

Further consultation with the Water Corporation following the completion of these studies has indicated that there may be more capacity within existing water and sewer infrastructure than what has been indicated. The Water Corporation has advised that this existing capacity may be sufficient to accommodate the proposed infill development without completing any infrastructure upgrades.

         

2.   Establishment of a development contribution arrangement for funding of infrastructure upgrades; and

 

The establishment of a development contribution arrangement to fund infrastructure upgrades was considered as a part of Administration's preparation of this Amendment.

 

 

The Department of Planning has advised that they do not support the establishment of a development contributions arrangement to fund any necessary infrastructure upgrades in the housing precincts. They do not consider that a development contribution arrangement could be done equitably in accordance with State Planning Policy 3.6 – Development Contributions across such a large area and could not support a development contributions arrangement that would run for an uncertain amount of time.

   

Based on the advice of the Water Corporation and Department of Planning Administration has not proceeded with the preparation of a development contributions arrangement. Instead, the upgrading of local and neighbourhood roads is intended to be met by the City through existing road monitor and upgrade programs. Any upgrades to the local water and sewer network that may be required in the future are intended to be met by private developers as and when the need arises. It is considered more cost effective to allow redevelopment to occur using existing capacity and only complete upgrades if and when that capacity has been reached.

 

3.   Introduction of provisions for the application of Design Guidelines to address the specific aspects and context of each housing precinct to facilitate appropriate future residential development and subdivision.

 

It is necessary to ensure that development within the housing precincts contributes to the streetscape and public realm. There is a risk that development allowed to proceed without design guidance or control could result in inactive street frontages characterised by a dominance of carports and garages, a proliferation of crossovers, and a reduced capacity for street trees and verge landscaping.

 

To address the infrastructure and design issues identified above, Administration is proposing to initiate an amendment to DPS 2 to implement a split density code approach for the Wanneroo and Girrawheen-Koondoola housing precincts.

Detail

The proposed amendment to DPS 2 comprises the following components:

 

Amending the Scheme R-Code Map to recode lots in the Wanneroo and Girrawheen-Koondoola housing precincts to R20/R40 and R20/R60.

 

It is proposed to implement a split density code over the Girrawheen-Koondoola and Wanneroo housing precincts in accordance with the Scheme Amendment Maps included as Attachment 1.

 

In this case the base code reflects the existing R-Code, and the higher code reflects the R‑Codes identified, and previously adopted by Council, in LPP 3.1.

 

The application of a split density code gives the City greater control and influence over subdivision and development than a conventional recoding by only allowing development at the higher R-Code where the proposed development can be adequately serviced and meets the necessary design requirements.

 

Where the servicing and design requirements cannot be met then the existing base code of R20 will apply and redevelopment at the higher R-Code cannot be approved.

 


 

 

Introducing new provisions that apply to split code areas.

 

To support the proposed split density code, it is proposed to introduce two new sub-clauses under clause 4.5 of DPS 2 – Special Application of the Residential Design Codes, which deal with the application of the split density code. These provisions provide guidance on development and subdivision applications.

The first clause applies to development proposals under the split density coding and sets out the criteria that must be met for the higher R-Code to apply. These criteria would be applied by Administration in determining applications for planning approval. They aim to ensure that the development does not contribute to a proliferation of driveways and crossovers at the expense of usable, attractive streetscapes and to ensure that passive surveillance of the public realm is maintained as infill development occurs.

The second clause acknowledges that subdivision applications may also be made under the split density coding and that the City is not the determining authority for subdivision applications. It states that Council will base its recommendations on subdivision applications referred to it by the Western Australian Planning Commission on the same requirements for development applications.

Consultation

During the preparation of this scheme amendment Administration has consulted with government departments and infrastructure service providers including the Department of Planning, Water Corporation, Telstra, WestNet Energy, Western Power, Department of Education, Department of Housing, Water Corporation and Main Roads.

 

All scheme amendments must (by law) be subject to public consultation. However, before doing so the amendment will need to be referred to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to assess the environmental impacts of the proposal and to determine whether any formal environmental assessment is necessary.

 

Subject to no objections being received from the EPA, the amendment will be advertised for public comment for a period of 42 days consistent with the requirements of the Town Planning Regulations 1967.

Comment

The implementation of a split density code over the Girrawheen-Koondoola and Wanneroo housing precincts is seen as the optimum solution to complex infrastructure and urban design issues, in terms of progressing this project in a manner that is timely and cost effective. The split density code approach directly links any required infrastructure upgrades with actual development uptake rather than basing infrastructure upgrades on assumptions about when and where development might occur. It will also provide a safeguard against poor urban design outcomes and negative impacts on streetscape and public realm that can sometimes be associated with infill redevelopment.

 

It is acknowledged that the split density code does not provide absolute certainty of the timing or location of future infrastructure upgrades or unrestricted development opportunities for landowners within the housing precincts. It is possible that some land owners may not be able to proceed with development at the higher R Coding until infrastructure capacity is addressed and there may be a perceived inequality associated with this.

 

There may be a risk that the community expects the City to provide necessary infrastructure upgrades when capacity is reached. To mitigate this risk Administration intends to closely monitor the uptake of development in the housing precincts and will continue to liaise with the Water Corporation to monitor infrastructure capacity.

 

In this event, Council has the ability, but is not required, to consider funding infrastructure upgrades to allow this development to proceed. Notwithstanding that potential infrastructure upgrades may be required; some infrastructure capacities may never be reached. The split code approach is therefore considered the most appropriate option given the uncertainty in relation to infrastructure capacity.

 

The structure of the scheme amendment itself is based on similar amendments prepared by other local governments that have already been approved by the Minister for Planning and are now in effect.

Statutory Compliance

The scheme amendment will follow the statutory process outlined in the Town Planning Regulations 1967.

 

The Town Planning Regulations 1967 provide that where an amendment is consistent with the Metropolitan Region Scheme and State policies and strategies, the consent of the Minister will not be required to advertise the amendment. In this instance, the proposed recoding is considered to be consistent with State Policy. As a result, the consent of the Minister will not be required to advertise the proposed amendment to DPS 2.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “2     Society - Healthy, safe, vibrant and active communities.

2.1    Great Places and Quality Lifestyle - People from different cultures find Wanneroo an exciting place to live with quality facilities and services.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

The proposed amendment does not meet the following three requirements of LPP 3.1:

 

1.       LPP 3.1 proposes conventional recoding to R40 and R60 and does not contemplate a split density code approach. A straight recoding to R40 and R60 was explored by Administration however it was not considered to sufficiently address the infrastructure and design issues. The R20/R40 and R20/R60 split codes used in this amendment are based on the straight R-Codes identified in LPP 3.1.

 

2.       LPP 3.1 requires the preparation of development contribution arrangements to fund the required infrastructure in the housing precincts. It was not feasible for a development contribution arrangement to be prepared for the housing precincts due to reasons outlined in the background section of this report.

 

3.       LPP 3.1 requires the introduction of provisions for the application of design guidelines to facilitate appropriate future residential development and subdivision.

 

The proposed amendment provisions do not specifically refer to the application of design guidelines and rather introduce provisions to directly address vehicular access and surveillance of the public realm. It is not considered necessary to introduce further design guidelines.

 

Administration intends to review LPP 3.1 in the future to address these inconsistencies.

Financial Implications

The cost to prepare and advertise the scheme amendment can be met through existing operational budgets.

The cost to undertake identified local and neighbourhood road upgrades is intended to be included in the City's Capital Works Budget as and when these upgrades are required.

Although the proposed split code approach is intended for developers to fund water and sewer infrastructure upgrades as required, Council may consider including funds in the Capital Works Budget in the future as required.

The proposed split code approach, if approved by Council and ultimately the Minister for Planning, will result in additional rates revenue associated with additional dwellings being created within the housing precincts.

Recommendation

That Council:-

1.       Pursuant to Section 75 of the Planning and Development Act 2005 INITIATES Amendment No. 119 to District Planning Scheme No. 2 for the purpose of:

a)      Inserting a new clause 4.5.4 and 4.5.5 as follows:

 

"4.5.4         Split Density Code – Development

 

Where a split residential density code is depicted on the Scheme Maps, any development shall conform to the lower density code applicable to the lot, unless the Council determines that development up to the higher density code would comply with the following requirements:

 

a)      Sufficient capacity exists in all necessary public utility services to adequately meet the needs of the development;

 

b)      The development has one consolidated vehicular access point with reciprocal access rights to serve all dwellings, and restricted vehicular access to other areas of road frontage;

 

c)      All dwellings located adjacent to the street frontage present to the streetscape and provide passive surveillance of the public realm; and

 

4.5.5           Split Density Code – Subdivision

 

Council will base its recommendations in respect to applications for subdivision of land depicted on the Scheme Maps with a split residential density code in accordance with the development requirements set out in clause 4.5.4.

 

 

b)      Amending the scheme maps as depicted in Attachment 1.

 

2.       Pursuant to Section 81 of the Planning and Development Act 2005 REFERS Amendment No. 119 to District Planning Scheme No. 2 to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) for comment; and should the EPA advise that the Amendment does not require assessment, ADVERTISES the Amendment for public comment for a period of 42 days, pursuant to Regulation 25(2) of the Town Planning Regulations 1967; and

Background

On 25 March 2014, Roberts Day Group, on behalf of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Perth, lodged a request with the City to rezone Lot 6 (43), Lot 7 (53) and Lot 8 (61) Drovers Place, Wanneroo from Special Use zone to Residential zone. A plan showing the location of Lots 6, 7 and 8 is provided as Attachment 1.

 

Currently, Table B of ASP 80 prescribes only the following land uses as discretionary (or 'D') uses on Lots 6, 7 and 8:

 

·        Educational Establishment; and

·        Low scale tourism-related uses, as determined by Council, including tea rooms, local arts and crafts, art galleries and restaurants/café.

 

On 8 April 2014, the Manager Planning Implementation forwarded a memorandum to all Elected Members, providing Elected Members with an opportunity to request referral of the proposal to Council for consent to advertise. No such requests were received and, as such, advertising of Amendment No. 2 to ASP 80 commenced on 13 May 2014 in accordance with Clause 9.5 of District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2).

Detail

Amendment No. 2 to ASP 80 proposes to rezone Lot 6 (43), Lot 7 (53) and Lot 8 (61) Drovers Place, Wanneroo from Special Use zone to Residential zone. To coincide with the proposed residential zoning, the Amendment also proposes to modify various parts of the ASP 80 text and Plan 1.

 

The Amendment document is included as Attachment 2. The key elements of proposed Amendment No. 2 to ASP 80 are as follows:

 

 

 

·        The rezoning of the Amendment area to Residential, to accommodate up to 450 dwellings with a range of housing densities from R20 to R60;

 

·        Modification to the Statement of Intent of the Western Precinct of ASP 80, to emphasise the intent for residential development to occur in this Precinct;

 

·        Modification to the proposed location of traffic signals required for the Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection, and modification to the responsibility for the subdivider/developer to construct those traffic signals; and

 

·        The removal of a requirement for the subdivider/developer of the land comprising the Amendment area to construct an emergency vehicle access from Joondalup Drive to the existing fire station on Drovers Place.

Consultation

The Amendment was advertised for public comment for a period of 42 days by means of an on-site sign, an advertisement in the Wanneroo Times newspaper, display on the City’s website and letters written to adjoining landowners. The submission period closed on 24 June 2014, with 10 submissions received.

 

Of the submissions received, two were of no objection, four objected to the proposal and four provided general comment in respect to the proposed Amendment. The key issues raised in the objections received relate to traffic and environmental impacts resulting from the proposed Amendment. These issues are discussed in detail in the Comment section of this report.

 

A summary of submissions received and Administration's responses to each is provided in Attachment 3.

Comment

Traffic Concerns

 

Location of Traffic Signals

 

To understand the traffic implications resulting from (then) draft ASP 80, a traffic study was commissioned by the City in 2010 by GHD Consultants. This traffic study identified the need for a signalised intersection on Joondalup Drive, to support vehicular access onto Drovers Place. The most reasonable location for the traffic signals identified in this study was adjacent to the existing western Drovers Place cul-de-sac head, as shown on the plan included as Attachment 4.

 

The traffic study prepared in 2010 highlighted that Main Roads Western Australia (MRWA) provided 'in-principle' support for the traffic signals adjacent to the existing western Drovers Place cul-de-sac head where shown in Attachment 4. However, support for traffic signals in this location was subject to the existing Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection being removed. The location of the existing Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection is shown in Attachment 4.

 

The existing ASP 80 map identifies the requirement to provide traffic signals adjacent to the existing western Drovers Place cul-de-sac head (refer to Existing Plan 1 as shown in Attachment 2 and the plan included as Attachment 4). However, Amendment No. 2 proposes to modify the ASP 80 map, by relocating the proposed location of the required traffic signals eastward, to the current Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection (refer to the 'Proposed Plan' as shown in Attachment 2 and the plan included as Attachment 4).

 

MRWA objects to the existing Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection being signalised for the following reasons:

 

·        The proposed traffic signals would be within close proximity to the existing signals at Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road, which is currently heavily congested with traffic queuing back through the intersection at Drovers Place; and 

 

·        Traffic signals at the proposed location could impact upon the future grade separation plans MRWA has for the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Wanneroo Road.

 

Although the applicant's traffic report provides a sound analysis of traffic volumes that could potentially be generated as a result of the Amendment proposal, it does not provide for an argument to address concerns from MRWA. Therefore, the location of the traffic signals at the existing Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection (as proposed in this Amendment) cannot be supported by Administration. A modification to this effect is tabled in the Schedule of Modifications included in Attachment 5.

 

Contribution toward Traffic Signals

 

Currently Table F – Section 5.2 of ASP 80 contains the following provision:

 

The subdivider/developer of Lots 6, 7 and 8 in the western precinct shall, in consultation with MRWA, design and construct a three-way signal controlled intersection linking Drovers Place to Joondalup Drive, as indicated on Plan 1 and construct an emergency vehicle access to the existing fire station on Lot 12462 to the specification and satisfaction of the City of Wanneroo.

 

This Amendment proposes to modify this provision, so that the landowner of Lots 6, 7 and 8 would be responsible in only contributing to the design and construction of traffic signals. This is opposed to the current ASP 80 provision, which requires the subdivider/developer of Lots 6, 7 and 8 fully funding the design and construction of the traffic signals. Administration does not accept this proposed aspect of the Amendment proposal, for the following reasons:

 

·        The applicant's traffic report concludes that traffic from residential development situated in the Amendment area would represent up to 66% of traffic on Drovers Place in the 2016 AM peak hour, and up to 50% in the PM peak hour;

 

·        As outlined in the applicant's traffic report, residential development in the Amendment area would generate a level of traffic through the Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection that warrant the need for traffic signals to be required. Similarly, if the Amendment was not proposed and an Education Establishment was developed on Lots 6, 7 and 8; that development would also have generated a level of traffic through the Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive intersection that would have warranted the need for traffic signals; and

 

·        The proposed Amendment does not specify to what extent (such as a percentage or other value) that the landowner should contribute to the design and construction of traffic signals. In the absence of the applicant outlining who would fund the remaining costs, responsibility for the design and construction of the traffic signals could inequitably fall on the City.

 

In light of the above, this Administration recommends that this aspect of the Amendment proposal not be supported. A modification to this effect is tabled in the Schedule of Modifications included in Attachment 5.

 

 

 

 

Emergency Vehicle Access to the Fire Station

 

As outlined above, Table F – Section 5.2 of ASP 80 contains a provision, which in part requires the subdivider/developer of Lots 6, 7 and 8 to construct an emergency vehicle access to the existing fire station on Lot 12462. It was previously agreed in ASP 80 to include a separate DFES access road onto Drovers Place and Joondalup Drive with appropriate treatments to overcome impacts of likely congestion resulting from development of a High School in the Amendment area. The Amendment proposes to remove the requirement for the landowners of Lots 6, 7 and 8 to provide the separate DFES access road.

 

The current zoning of Special Use on Lots 6, 7 and 8 permits the development of an Education Establishment. Rezoning this land to Residential would result in an Education Establishment being a prohibited (or 'X') use on Lots 6, 7 and 8. Although an Education Establishment will no longer be developed in the Amendment area, traffic is still expected to queue on approach to the Drovers Place/Joondalup Drive intersection. However, as outlined in the applicant's traffic report, traffic generated from the residential development would be considerably less in peak periods than the traffic generated from an Education Establishment. Traffic generated by residential development in the Amendment area would be up to 2,700 vehicles per day, with 270 vehicles per hour in peak periods. This compares to the estimated 1,500 vehicles per hour in peak periods generated from an Education Establishment in the Amendment area, as stipulated in the traffic study prepared by GHD in 2010.

 

In light of the above, Administration considers that the emergency vehicle access is no longer required, and therefore supports this aspect of the Amendment proposal.

 

Provision of Traffic Report for Subdivision/Development

 

Table E of the ASP 80 text outlines the general planning framework for the entire structure plan area, not just the land subject to this Amendment. In particular, this table specifies that a traffic report be provided prior to the subdivision or development of land in the ASP 80 area, including lots situated outside the Amendment area.

 

The Amendment proposes to amend Table E of the structure plan text, by removing any requirement for a traffic report to be provided prior to any subdivision or development. Administration considers this aspect of the Amendment proposal would inadvertently remove the requirement for traffic reports being provided prior to the subdivision or development of land anywhere in the ASP 80 area.

 

In light of the above, Administration recommends that this aspect of the Amendment proposal not be supported. A modification to this effect is tabled in the Schedule of Modifications included in Attachment 5.

 

Environmental Impacts

 

Preserving Natural Environment

 

The submissions received have highlighted concern regarding the potential loss of the environmental value on the three lots subject to the Amendment, such as the loss of established trees. In response, Administration provides the following comment:

 

·        The Amendment only proposes to rezone land to Residential. The Amendment does not propose to alter the natural environment; and

 


 

 

·        Consideration of the natural environment (including the retention of significant vegetation and trees) will be made at later stages of the planning process, when the landowner lodges an application for subdivision and a Detailed Area Plan (DAP). Administration notes that Table A – Section 1 of ASP 80 requires the lodgement and adoption of a DAP that is not geographically smaller than the precinct in which it is located. Once a DAP is lodged, ASP 80 requires the DAP to be advertised to members of the public and government agencies prior to its adoption. 

 

Water Management

 

In their submission, the Department of Water has suggested that a Local Water Management Strategy (LWMS) should be compiled for Lot 6, 7 and 8. The Amendment proposal does not include a LWMS, or the provision for the subdivider/developer to prepare the strategy.

 

Administration does not consider the submission of a LWMS pursuant to the provisions of Local Planning Policy 4.4: Urban Water Management (LPP 4.4) as necessary. This is because prior to ASP 80 being adopted, the City prepared an Urban Water Management Framework to provide some guiding principles for landowners in the preparation of the more detailed Urban Water Management Plans, which are required under ASP 80 to be prepared prior to the subdivision or development of the land. An Urban Water Management Framework is considered a satisfactory equivalent to a LWMS, and therefore Administration does not consider that an LWMS is required.

 

Residential Development Considerations

 

Residential Density Code Plan

 

The Amendment proposes to impose a residential density code range of between R20 to R60. The Amendment does not propose any mechanism for R-Codings to be assigned to certain lots, following subdivision of land in the Amendment area.

 

Other structure plans adopted by the City that propose a residential density code range require the submission of a Residential Density Code Plan to be provided at the time of subdivision. The subdivision proposal (which would incorporate the Residential Density Code Plan) would then be assessed by Administration, and a response provided to the Western Australian Planning Commission accordingly.

 

Therefore, a modification has been tabled in the Schedule of Modifications (included as Attachment 5) requiring an additional section (Section 9) of Table B of ASP 80, which prescribes provisions in relation to the provision of a Residential Density Code Plan. These provisions would read as follows:

 

9.1     A Residential Density Code Plan is to be submitted at the time of subdivision to the WAPC and shall indicate the Residential Density Coding applicable to each lot within the subdivision and shall be consistent with the Structure Plan, and the Residential Density Ranges identified in Section 3.2 of this Table. 

 

9.2     The Residential Density Code Plan is to include the proposed dwelling yield of the subdivision.

 

9.3     Approval of the Residential Density Code Plan shall be undertaken at the time of determination of the subdivision application by the WAPC. The approved Residential Density Code Plan shall then form part of the Structure Plan and shall be used for the determination of future development applications. Variations to the Residential Density Code Plan will require further approval of the WAPC.

 

 

9.4     Residential Density Code Plans are not required if the WAPC considers that the subdivision is for one or more of the following:-

 

i)          The amalgamation of lots;

ii)         Consolidation of land for “superlot” purposes to facilitate land assembly for future development; or

iii)         The purposes of facilitating the provision of access, services or infrastructure.

 

Conclusion

 

Amendment No. 2 to ASP 80 relates to Lot 6 (43), Lot 7 (53) and Lot 8 (61) Drovers Place, Wanneroo; located in the Western Precinct as identified on the Structure Plan Map. The Amendment proposes to rezone these land parcels to Residential, with a density coding of R20 to R60. The Amendment also proposes additional changes to the Structure Plan text and map, particularly in relation to traffic provisions.

 

In light of the comments made previously in this Report, Administration considers the proposed Amendment to be acceptable and therefore recommends that the Amendment be adopted by Council subject to recommended modifications outlined in Attachment 5.

Statutory Compliance

This Structure Plan Amendment has been processed in accordance with the requirements of DPS 2. Clause 9.6.1 of DPS 2 provides that following advertisement of a Structure Plan Amendment, Council may refuse to adopt the Amendment or resolve that the Amendment is satisfactory with or without modifications.

Issue

To consider endorsement of a submission to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) on proposed Amendment 1276/57 to the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS), to rezone eight properties on Caporn Street, Wanneroo from Rural to Urban Deferred.

Location

Background

In July 2012, the WAPC invited preliminary comment from the City on a proposal it had received for rezoning eight properties on Caporn Street, Wanneroo from Rural to Urban under the MRS.

 

The location of the subject land is shown on Attachments 1 and 2.  It involves an area of 26.54 ha.

 

Administration advised the WAPC in writing on 2 August 2012 that on the basis of the draft Local Planning Policy (LPP) 5.3 : East Wanneroo, the City did not support the proposed MRS Amendment as it was considered premature and contrary to the proper and orderly planning of the East Wanneroo area.  It was considered likely to compromise the establishment of a proper planning framework for the East Wanneroo area, and set an undesirable precedent for other similar proposals which may be submitted for the area.

Detail

The WAPC resolved on 24 June 2014 to amend the MRS to rezone the subject land to Urban Deferred, and is now advertising the proposal for a public submission period, closing on 30 January 2015.  To allow Council's consideration of this matter, the Department of Planning (DoP) has agreed that the City can provide a formal submission following this Council Meeting.

 

The Amendment Report (dated November 2014) notes that the Amendment will facilitate residential development of the subject land. 

 

The Amendment Report also advises that the following requirements are to be addressed prior to the lifting of Urban Deferment:

 

·        A District Structure Plan (DSP) being prepared for the East Wanneroo Structure Plan (EWSP) area; and

 

·        A Bush Fire Hazard Assessment being undertaken for the site to the satisfaction of the Department of Fire and Emergency Services.

 

The applicant has recently submitted a Briefing Note to the City, seeking the City's support for rezoning to Urban (instead of Urban Deferred), and for the removal of the WAPC condition requiring district structure planning prior to lifting of Deferment (with this presumably applying should the WAPC not agree to rezoning directly to Urban).  A copy of the Briefing Note is provided in Attachment 3.

Consultation

The WAPC undertook preliminary consultation with relevant agencies in July 2012, and is now undertaking a formal public submission period on the proposed Amendment.

Comment

Council adopted LPP 5.3 at its Meeting on 27 May 2014 (item PS01-05/14).  LPP 5.3 sets out an 8 step planning process to guide the further planning of the East Wanneroo area.  The WAPC was formally advised of Council's adoption of LPP 5.3 by way of correspondence dated 5 June 2014.

 

The first step in the Policy's planning process involves landowners preparing and submitting applications to the WAPC for amendment of the MRS to rezone all of the area shown as 'potential urban' on the EWSP to Urban.  This was to be done through two amendments: one for the potential urban land north of Dundebar Road, and one for the potential urban land south of that road.

 

Proposed MRS Amendment 1276/57 is proposing to rezone only a small part of the potential urban land north of Dundebar Road to Urban Deferred.  It is therefore contrary to LPP 5.3 in the following ways:

 

1.       It does not involve all of the potential urban land north of Dundebar Road;

2.       It involves rezoning to Urban Deferred, and not Urban; and

3.       It does not address a prerequisite under LPP 5.3 for undertaking of Step 1, which involves the proponent first obtaining the City's prior approval to undertaking this work, in order to be entitled to subsequently claim development contribution 'credits' for the costs incurred in doing this work.

 

Being contrary to LPP 5.3, this proposed MRS Amendment presents the following issues:

 

1.       It may set a precedent for further ad hoc, piecemeal planning rather than the East Wanneroo area being subject to a comprehensive planning approach as proposed under LPP 5.3.

 

          On 28 January 2014, the WAPC resolved to initiate the similar small-scale rezoning to Urban Deferred of an 18 ha area of land on Dundebar Road, Wanneroo.  The WAPC is expected to make a final recommendation to the Minister for Planning on this proposal shortly.

 

          Administration is aware that other landowner groups may be looking to apply for Urban Deferred zoning of their area, based on these proposed MRS amendments.  Assessment and processing of such piecemeal applications which are likely to follow if these proposed MRS Amendments are approved, will be time consuming and resource intensive for the City, State Government and other agencies.

 

 

 

2.       Through requiring that MRS rezoning to Urban occur through only two amendments covering the total potential urban area, LPP 5.3 aims to facilitate a collaborative approach being taken by the various landowner groups and their respective consultants who are active in that area.

 

          This will be especially important when the landowners come to prepare the two DSPs required under LPP 5.3, as these will involve a wide range of detailed studies at considerable cost.  Piecemeal MRS Amendments discourages such collaboration occurring between the landowner groups. 

 

3.       The Amendment Report refers to only two things needing to be done for the WAPC to then lift Urban Deferment: preparation of a DSP, and a Bushfire Hazard Assessment being undertaken.  This infers that WAPC would then consider approving subdivision applications in that area.

 

          The planning framework to be established through the LPP 5.3 planning process involves a number of other important elements, including Local Structure Plans (LSP) and Development Contribution Plans (DCP), which need to be in place prior to subdivision stage.  It is concerning that the WAPC may be contemplating subdivision in the absence of such important mechanisms being in place.

 

4.       It does not allow the City to implement a proper accreditation and accounting system to handle subsequent claims for DCP credits.

 

Given that this MRS amendment application is contrary to LPP 5.3, and the problems this presents as indicated above, it is recommended that Council objects to this Amendment.

 

Relationship to Recent Submission on Dundebar Road MRS Proposal

 

The above comments and the following recommendation on this Caporn Street proposal are generally consistent with the comments and recommendation which were made on proposed MRS Amendment 1263/57, which was considered at Council's Meeting of 16 September 2014 (Item PS05-09/14).  That proposal also involved rezoning from Rural to Urban Deferred, and involved a pocket of land on Dundebar Road, Wanneroo.  Similar to the Caporn Street proposal, the pocket of land on Dundebar Road is situated between an existing residential area and an existing Special Rural zoned area.

 

Council's decision on the Dundebar Road proposal was to:

 

1.       Object to it, for generally the same reasons given in this report in respect to the Caporn Street proposal.  (A reason relating to a proposal by the WAPC for the City to prepare a DSP for the East Wanneroo area is not included in respect to the Caporn Street amendment as the WAPC has not made this DSP proposal in relation to the Caporn Street amendment, as it previously did for the Dundebar Road amendment).

 

2.       Advise the WAPC and the DoP that it was disappointed that they were pursuing an approach which was contrary to that proposed under LPP 5.3, and sought to work with them to arrive at a shared approach to the planning of the East Wanneroo area.

 

3.       Advise the WAPC and the DoP that while Council was objecting to that proposed MRS Amendment, it would support an amendment which involved rezoning to Urban of all of the potential urban land north of Dundebar Road.

 


 

 

This report's recommendation is slightly different to that made on the Dundebar Road proposal in that it acknowledges the work in progress between the City and State planning agencies which is aimed at arriving at a shared approach to the planning of East Wanneroo (see 2. above).  The outcome of this work is to be presented to Council in the near future.

Statutory Compliance

If the City wishes the WAPC (and subsequently the Minister for Planning) to be made formally aware of its views on this Amendment, then it needs to make a submission to WAPC on it.

 

In respect to implications for City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2 (DPS 2), rezoning to Urban Deferred does not trigger any statutory requirement for the City to amend DPS 2.  However, lifting of Urban Deferment will require DPS 2 to be amended to make it consistent with the MRS.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “4     Civic Leadership - Working with others to ensure the best use of our resources.

4.2    Working With Others - The community is a desirable place to live and work as the City works with others to deliver the most appropriate outcomes.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

The proposed MRS Amendment is contrary to LPP 5.3.  If it is approved, the City may need to review its position on LPP 5.3.

 

The outcome of the current work with the State planning agencies referred to previously might also lead to a need for a review of LPP 5.3.

Financial Implications

Approval of this proposed MRS Amendment may make it more difficult for the City to establish comprehensive and effective DCPs for the East Wanneroo area.

 

It might also lead to the City needing to reconsider its position regarding preparation of DSPs for the area.  DSP preparation would be very costly, however, it should be possible to recover such costs through DCPs.

Recommendation

That Council:-

1.         OBJECTS to Metropolitan Region Scheme Amendment 1276/57 relating to Lots 1, 2, 7, 12, 13, 36 – 38 Caporn Street, Wanneroo because it is contrary to Local Planning Policy 5.3: East Wanneroo, and this presents the following issues:-

a)      It may set a precedent for further ad hoc, piecemeal planning rather than the East Wanneroo area being subject to a comprehensive planning approach as proposed under LPP 5.3;

b)      Through requiring that MRS rezoning to Urban occur through only two amendments covering the total potential urban area, LPP 5.3 aims to facilitate a collaborative approach being taken by the various landowner groups and their respective consultants who are active in that area.  Piecemeal MRS Amendments discourages such collaboration occurring between the landowner groups;

c)      The Amendment Report refers to only two things needing to be done for the WAPC to then lift Urban Deferment: preparation of a DSP, and a Bushfire Hazard Assessment being undertaken.  The planning framework to be established through the LPP 5.3 planning process involves a number of other important elements, including Local Structure Plans (LSP) and Development Contribution Plans (DCP), which need to be in place prior to subdivision stage; and

d)      It does not allow the City to implement a proper accreditation and accounting system to handle subsequent claims for DCP credits.  

2.       FORWARDS a copy of this Administration report to the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) as the City's formal response to proposed Metropolitan Region Amendment 1276/57;

3.       ADVISES the WAPC and the Department of Planning that it seeks to continue to work with the State planning agencies to arrive at a shared approach, based on LPP 5.3, which will facilitate the establishment of a comprehensive planning framework and enable the East Wanneroo area to develop in an orderly and proper manner;  and

4.       ADVISES the WAPC and the Department of Planning that while Council is objecting to this current MRS Amendment for this land on Caporn Street, it would support an MRS amendment which involved rezoning to Urban of all of the land north of Dundebar Road which is shown as potential urban under the East Wanneroo Structure Plan.

Background

Amendment No. 3 to ASP 80 affects Lot 810 (1397) and Lot 811 (1387), Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo.  A plan showing the location of Lot 810 and Lot 811 is provided as Attachment 1. ASP 80 prescribes land use permissibility on Lot 810 and Lot 811, which ASP 80 currently zones as 'Special Use'. The Special Use zone extends into adjoining Lot 1 and Lot 132, which collectively forms part of the Central Precinct of ASP 80. 

 

The purpose of Amendment No. 3 to ASP 80 is to modify the land use permissibility of the Medical Centre and Pharmacy use classes, so that they are discretionary uses on Lot 810 and Lot 811. This was previously considered by Council at its 14 October 2014 Council Meeting (PS05-10/14), together with Amendment No. 4 to ASP 80 which proposed to comprehensively address land use permissibility on Lot 810 and Lot 811. The landowner of Lot 810 and Lot 811 arranged for Amendment No. 3 to be submitted independently, in anticipation that a Medical Centre and Pharmacy could be established on Lot 810 and Lot 811 in a timely manner.

 

SAT Proceedings

 

Applications that are not determined within 60 days from the close of advertising are deemed  refused under Clause 9.6.4 of DPS 2, for the purpose of a right to review at the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT). In the case of Amendment No. 3, a decision to determine this amendment had not been made by a date that was 60 days from the close of advertising (22 August 2014). The applicant exercised this right for review on 10 September 2014 by lodging an application for review at the SAT. Administration then attended a Directions Hearing on 3 October 2014, where the SAT had issued orders, inviting Council to reconsider the deemed refusal at the 14 October 2014 Council Meeting pursuant to Section 31 of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004.

 

After Council's decision of 14 October 2014 (PS05-10/14), the applicant exercised their rights to seek a review of Council's decision at SAT, particularly on matters pertaining to Amendment No. 4.

 

 

As Council’s previous adoption of Amendment No. 3 was subject to the adoption of Amendment No. 4, the SAT nominated the application for review of Amendment No. 3 to remain running, and not be withdrawn.

 

The Department of Planning (DoP) has advised that its consideration of Amendment No. 3 is pending the receipt of Amendment No. 4 documents that are modified in accordance with Council’s previous resolution. Administration is unable to provide Amendment No. 4 documents to the DoP, as the items contained in that Amendment proposal are still subject to ongoing proceedings at SAT.

 

Council could reconsider Amendment No. 3, and recommend adoption of this Amendment in a way that would not be subject to the adoption of Amendment No. 4, and therefore could potentially remove Amendment No. 3 from the SAT proceedings. The benefit of this is that it would potentially enable the Medical Centre and Pharmacy to proceed. Further discussion of this is included in the ‘Detail’ section, below. In consultation with the applicant's solicitors, the City's solicitors arranged for SAT to invite Council to reconsider its previous decision on Amendment No. 3 pursuant to Section 31 of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004.

 

Council's Previous Decision

 

Council at its 14 October 2014 Council Meeting (PS05-10/14) resolved to adopt (in turn) Amendment No. 4 then Amendment No. 3 to ASP 80. Amendment No. 4 was adopted first in turn, as this amendment proposed a revised Statement of Intent that facilitated the consideration of Amendment No. 3.

 

Council's resolution on Amendment No. 3 and Amendment No. 4 to ASP 80, made at the 14 October 2014 Council Meeting was as follows:

 

"That Council:-

 

1.       NOTES the petition tabled at 1 April 2014 Council  Meeting for Council to consider a medical centre including pharmacy, to be located at Lot 810 Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo (PT06-04/14), and ADVISES the principal petitioner of its decision outlined in Items 2. and 4. below;

 

2.       Pursuant to Clauses 9.6.1 (b) of the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2, RESOLVES that Amendment No. 4 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80, included as Attachment 3, submitted by Wakefield Planning Australia on behalf of Goldrange Pty Ltd & Greenpark Asset Pty Ltd is SATISFACTORY, subject to the recommended modifications listed in the Schedule of Modifications included as Attachment 8 being made to the satisfaction of the Director Planning and Sustainability;

 

3.       Pursuant to Clause 9.6.1 of the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2, SUBMITS three copies of Amendment No. 4 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80 to the Western Australian Planning Commission for its adoption and certification, once modified in accordance with 2. above;

 

4.       Pursuant to Section 31 (2) (c) of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004, SET ASIDE the deemed refusal of Amendment No. 3, and pursuant to Clause 9.6.1 (b) of the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2, and subject to item 2. above, RESOLVE that Amendment No. 3 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80, included as Attachment 2, is SATISFACTORY and SUBMITS three copies to the Western Australian Planning Commission for its adoption and certification;

 


 

 

5.       Pursuant to Clause 9.6.5 of the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2, ADOPTS Amendment No. 3 and the duly modified Amendment No. 4 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80 and AUTHORISES the Director, Planning and Sustainability to SIGN the Amendment documents; and

 

6.       NOTES the Schedule of Submissions received in respect of Amendment No. 3 and Amendment No. 4 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80 included as Attachment 5 and Attachment 6, ENDORSES Administration’s comments and recommendations in response to those submissions, FORWARDS the Schedule of Submissions to the Western Australian Planning Commission and ADVISES the submitters of its decision."

Detail

As outlined in the previous report to Council on this matter (PS05-10/14), Amendment No. 3 to ASP 80 proposed the following modification to the ASP 80 text:

 

Modifying Clause 2.1 of Table C by adding the following additional uses to the list of discretionary ('D') uses:

 

Medical Centre and Pharmacy (as 'D' uses on Lots 810 and 811 only)

 

However, to coincide with the proposed modification to the land use permissibility of ‘Medical Centre’ and ‘Pharmacy’, the landowner of Lot 810 and Lot 811 is seeking Council’s reconsideration of the Amendment proposal to also incorporate the following:

 

·        A change to the Statement of Intent for the ‘Central Precinct’ of ASP 80; and

·        The creation of two distinct 'Special Use' zones within the Central Precinct. Special Use Zone 'A' would encompass Lot 1 and Lot 132, and Special Use Zone 'B' would encompass Lot 810 and Lot 811.

 

The revised Amendment documentation subject to Council's consideration is included as Attachment 2.

 

The revised Amendment proposes a modification to the zoning, which depicts two distinct 'Special Use' zones in the Central Precinct, being Special Use Zone 'A' and Special Use Zone 'B'. These distinct Special Use zonings have already been adopted by Council as part of its previous considerations on Amendment No. 4 made at the 14 October 2014 Council Meeting. The Statement of Intent that the landowner is seeking to be incorporated into Amendment No. 3 is also the same as that adopted by Council as part of its consideration of Amendment No. 4. That Statement of Intent is as follows:

 

1.1     The intent of the Special Use Zone “A” within the Central Precinct is to provide for niche business and cultural uses that benefit from high exposure to Wanneroo Road but do not significantly compromise the viability of nearby activity centres.

 

1.2     The intent of the Special Use Zone “B” within the Central Precinct is to accommodate health, welfare, community services, entertainment, recreation, commercial and cultural facilities that:

 

·    Attract a significant number of employees or users and/or generate significant vehicle trips; and

 

·    Do not significantly compromise the viability of nearby Activity Centres.

 

 

 

1.3     Development within both the Special Use Zone “A” and the Special Use Zone “B” is encouraged to provide a built form that respects and recognises the environment of Yellagonga Regional Park.

Consultation

No further consultation has been undertaken following Council's previous consideration of the proposal.

Comment

The revised Amendment No. 3 proposal does not propose to introduce elements that have not been previously considered (and adopted) by Council. The land use permissibility of 'D' proposed for the Medical Centre and Pharmacy use classes have previously been supported by Administration and subsequently adopted by Council as part of Amendment No. 3. Also, the Statement of Intent and the modification to the Structure Plan Map introduced into the revised Amendment No. 3 are the same as those previously supported by Administration and subsequently adopted by Council as part of Amendment No. 4.

 

Administration considers the revised Amendment No. 3 acceptable, as it is consistent with Council's decision. The reason for this report is to remove the ties that Council's previous resolution had on Amendments No. 3 and No. 4. The revised Amendment No. 3 if adopted by Council could potentially mean that the SAT only needs to consider Amendment No. 4, and not Amendment No. 3.

 

The Orders prepared by the SAT invite Council to review its previous decision. Under Section 31 (2) of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004, and in response to the invitation of the SAT, Council may do one of the following further to a previous decision:

 

(a)     affirm the decision; or

(b)     vary the decision; or

(c)     set aside the decision and substitute its new decision.

 

Administration therefore recommends that Council varies the decision from its 14 October 2014 Council Meeting (to the extent that it affects Amendment No. 3), and resolves to adopt the revised Amendment document as included as Attachment 2.

Statutory Compliance

In accordance with Section 31 of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004, the SAT has invited Council to reconsider the conditions of its decision.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “3     Economy - Progressive, connected communities that enable economic growth and employment.

3.2    Growing Business - Our community is a preferred place for business to locate and grow.

 


 

 

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

The modifications to the Statement of Intent proposed in the revised Amendment No. 3 proposal have been assessed and considered under the provisions of the City’s Local Planning Policy 4.2: Structure Planning, Local Planning Policy 3.2: Activity Centres and State Planning Policy 4.2: Activity Centres for Perth and Peel.

Financial Implications

Financial implications would be dependent on the decision of Council and the applicant's further action arising there from.

 

Should the matter proceed to a Full Hearing at the SAT, the City is likely to incur further costs in legal and expert fees. These costs do not include the substantial Administration time involved to date and which will be further required should the matter proceed to Full Hearing.

Simple Majority

 

Recommendation

That Council, pursuant to Section 31 (2) (b) of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004, VARIES its decision made at its Meeting of 14 October 2014 (PS05-10/14), by DELETING the following item of that decision:

 

“4.     Pursuant to Section 31 (2) (c) of the State Administrative Tribunal Act 2004, SET ASIDE the deemed refusal of Amendment No. 3, and pursuant to Clause 9.6.1 (b) of the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No. 2, and subject to item 2. above, RESOLVE that Amendment No. 3 to Drovers Place Precinct Agreed Structure Plan No. 80, included as Attachment 2, is SATISFACTORY and SUBMITS three copies to the Western Australian Planning Commission for its adoption and certification;”

 

and REPLACING it with the following:

Issue

To consider the permanent closure of an unnamed road reserve, located adjoining the Lake Joondalup foreshore reserve, Wanneroo.

 

Background

Administration is proposing to permanently close an unnamed road reserve where depicted on the plan included as Attachment 1.

 

The purpose of a road reserve is to provide for vehicular and pedestrian access. However, this road reserve is not used for this function, and Administration proposes to amalgamate the road reserve with the adjoining land parcels.

Detail

The road reserve has a total area of approximately 1.57 hectares. There is no visible distinction between the road reserve and the adjoining Lake Joondalup foreshore reserve land parcels. The road reserve does not contain any of the typical features seen on most road reserves, such as a road or footpaths.

 

Under Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997, a local government may request the Minister for Lands to close a road reserve. Should the Minister for Lands respond to the City's request and agree to close the road reserve, the Department of Lands could then arrange to amalgamate the road reserve land into the adjoining land parcels.

 

The road reserve is within the 'Parks and Recreation' reservation under the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS). Similarly, the adjoining Lake Joondalup foreshore reserve is also reserved as 'Parks and Recreation' under the MRS.

Consultation

In accordance with Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997, a local government must not resolve to make a request to the Minister for Lands to permanently close a road until a period of 35 days has elapsed from the publication of the proposed closure in a newspaper circulating in its district and the local government has considered any objections made within that period.

 

In accordance with this legislation, Administration arranged the publication of a notice in the Wanneroo Times on 18 February 2014, inviting comment for a 35 day time period concluding on 25 March 2014.

 

Administration undertook public consultation by way of installation of onsite signage, as well as sending letters to nearby landowners. Letters were also sent to relevant government agencies and service authorities as listed below:

 

 

 

·        Department of Lands;

·        Water Corporation;

·        Western Power;

·        ATCO Gas Australia;

·        Telstra;

·        Western Australian Planning Commission;

·        Department of Parks and Wildlife; and

·        City of Joondalup

 

A summary of the comments received from the servicing authorities and government agencies is included as Attachment 2. Although there were no objections raised regarding the proposed closure of the road reserve, Western Power provided comments with respect to their services located in the vicinity of the proposed road reserve closure. No submissions were received from the surrounding landowners.

Comment

The proposed road reserve closure (where depicted on the plan included as Attachment 1) is supported by Administration for the following reasons:

 

·        No objections were raised from nearby residents or government agencies;

·        The road reserve only extends to the City of Wanneroo boundary with the City of Joondalup. There is no road reserve in the City of Joondalup that links with the road reserve subject to the proposed closure;

·        Any conflict on services already provided within the road reserve can be resolved by utility providers and/or the City;

·        There is no constructed road within the subject road reserve;

·        The proposed road reserve closure would have no effect on private landowners in the immediate vicinity; and

·        The proposed road reserve closure does not conflict with any requirement of District Planning Scheme No. 2 or the Metropolitan Region Scheme.

 

A resolution of Council recommending closure of a road reserve is required prior to the Minister for Land’s consideration for closure.

 

Landlock Issues

 

The proposal to close the road reserve would result in Lot 502, Crown Land managed by the City, becoming 'landlocked'; or in other words not having direct access from a road reserve. Similarly, the proposal to close the road reserve would also result in Lot 7 and Lot 8 becoming landlocked. Lot 7 and Lot 8 are owned by the Department of Planning (DoP), but are managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW). Both DPaW and DoP have advised that they have no objection to the proposed road reserve closure, aware of the implications that these land parcels could be landlocked.

 

The Department of Lands has advised Administration that right of access between the landlocked land parcels and the nearest road, being Scenic Drive could be provided by way of Easements. The required Easements would be prepared by the Department of Lands (in consultation with DPaW, DoP and the City's Administration) should the Minister for Lands resolve to close the road reserve.

 

In the case of the Easement required for access to Lot 502, the Department of Lands have advised that the City would be required to execute any Easement documents prepared, as the City would be the grantee of the Easement. Administration will consider the execution of the Easement documents, when received in due course.

Statutory Compliance

The City must comply with Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997 and Regulation 9 of the Land Administration Regulations 1998, dealing with public advertising, objections and service agency responses to the proposed road reserve closure and must formally resolve to ‘close the road’, prior to advising the Department of Lands and requesting the Minister for Lands to consider the closure request.

 

The Department of Lands has advised that, where a local authority makes a request under Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997 for the closure of a road, the local government must indemnify the Minister for Lands in respect of that closure.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “2     Society - Healthy, safe, vibrant and active communities.

2.2    Healthy and Active People - We get active in our local area and we have many opportunities to experience a healthy lifestyle.

Issue

To consider the permanent closure of a pedestrian accessway (PAW) between Feathertop Rise and The Avenue, Alexander Heights.

 

Background

The PAW consists of a land parcel formally known as Portion Lot 1055 (20P) Feathertop Rise, Alexander Heights.

 

The PAW between Feathertop Rise and The Avenue, Alexander Heights was created in the late 1980's as part of the subdivision of the locality. The PAW was intended to provide a pedestrian connection to and from the cul-de-sac of Feathertop Rise and The Avenue.

 

A location plan that identifies the location of the PAW is included as Attachment 1. Attachment 1 also includes a plan that identifies the features (such as bus stops, parks, community facilities etc) referred to in this Report, and the submissions received by Administration.

 

The physical characteristics of the PAW are as follows:

 

·        The subject PAW is four metres wide and approximately 64 metres long.

·        The path slopes gently toward Feathertop Rise from The Avenue and is relatively straight. 

·        The footpath within the PAW path is two metres in width, with 1.0 metre landscape strips on either side. The landscaping strips have no vegetation, with the exception of some small weeds.

·        There is no lighting in the PAW; however, street lights exist at both ends of the PAW.

·        The PAW has access barriers at either end.

·        Some evidence of previous incidences of graffiti on fences, street lighting and the footpath, as parts of these structures has sporadically been painted over.

 

Prior to the lodgement of the PAW closure request, a petition with six signatures was tabled by (then) Cr. Mackenzie during the 30 April 2013 Council Meeting (PT04-04/13). This petition requested Council to consider closing the PAW between The Avenue and Feathertop Rise in Alexander Heights, to prevent its use for anti-social and criminal behaviours.  Included in the Minutes of the 28 May 2013 Council Meeting is the following update, provided by Administration:

 

Administration has prepared and sent a letter to all six petitioners, advising of further actions that are required from them prior to Administration considering the closure of the public accessway between The Avenue and Feathertop Rise, Alexander Heights. Until such time that information is provided by the petitioners no further action is required by the City.

 

Further to Administration's response to the above petition, a request was received on 29 April 2014 by the landowners of the four properties adjoining the PAW.

 

 

The landowners lodging the request for the City to consider closing the PAW are hereafter referred to as the 'applicants'.

Detail

In their submission to Administration on 29 April 2014, the applicants requested the City consider closing the PAW, for the following reasons:

 

·        Frustration with anti-social behaviour, vandalism, theft, graffiti and the PAW being used as a motorbike thorough fare; and

 

·        The PAW is not a necessity in its location, as it is not near schools, shopping centres or major bus routes.

 

The landowners of Lot 84 (88) The Avenue and Lot 67 (22) Feathertop Rise have expressed interest in purchasing proportionate shares of the existing PAW, to amalgamate the PAW land into their own properties. A plan demonstrating the landowners proposal is included as Attachment 2.

Consultation

In accordance with the Land Administration Act 1997, Administration arranged the publication of a notice in the Wanneroo Times on 22 July 2014, inviting comment for a 35 day time period concluding on 26 August 2014.

 

Public consultation was also carried out by way of:

 

·        Letters to landowners within 200 metres of the subject PAW;

·        Installation of signage at the Feathertop Rise and The Avenue entrances of the PAW; and

·        Letters to relevant government agencies and service authorities that may be affected by the closure of the PAW.

 

On 22 August 2014 (and prior to the conclusion of the advertising period), Administration was advised by nearby residents that the signage erected at each end of the PAW had been removed. Further investigations revealed that the signage was removed by Administration in error. Administration therefore arranged for the sign to be re-installed on Monday, 1 September 2014 and the City's website was updated inviting comment for an additional two week period concluding on 16 September 2014.

 

From 22 July 2014 until 16 September 2014, Administration received 27 submissions. Of those submissions, 18 objected to the PAW closure, and nine submissions raised no objection to the proposed closure of the PAW. One further submission objecting to the PAW closure was received after 16 September 2014. A summary of the comments received in the submissions, together with Administration's comments is included as Attachment 3.

 

Two submissions were accompanied by photographs which are included as Attachment 4.

Comment

Administration has prepared an assessment report on the subject PAW in accordance with the WAPC’s Procedures for the Closure of Pedestrian Access Ways (refer Attachment 5). The recommendations of that assessment can be summarised as follows:

 

 

 

 

·        The PAW is non-essential, but provides some local area efficiencies for pedestrians residing on Feathertop Rise, or pedestrians walking between The Avenue and Fenchurch Street; and

 

·        The Australian Bureau of Statistics socio-economic index for areas (SEIFA) is obtained from the ABS website and provides a means for assessing the relative socio-economic advantage of different areas based on census data. The SEIFA data was then used alongside the physical analysis of the PAW, to represent whether a PAW is likely to be of a high, medium or low crime risk due to socio-economic context. The concluding result of that risk assessment was that the PAW has a ‘Medium Risk’ on pedestrians and cyclists that use the PAW. Administration considers that this conclusion suggests that the City should explore implementing designing out crime strategies should further need arise in the future.

 

In addition to that assessment, the City's Local Planning Policy for Pedestrian Access Ways (the Policy) provides guidance for the City to evaluate applications for the closure of PAW's. Further assessment of the proposed PAW closure against the policy provisions is provided for below:

 

Role of the PAW within the Neighbourhood

 

Administration considers the PAW to be a 'Single Access Route PAW'. A Single Access Route PAW is defined in the Policy where a PAW does not form part of continuous access route. A continuous access route is where more than one PAW forms part of an access route.

 

The PAW enables the pedestrian movement from Picton Terrace, across The Avenue and into the PAW to connect to Feathertop Rise. As outlined through the submissions, this route seems popular with residents accessing the local centre situated on Greenpark Road. The reverse would also apply for residents walking in a westerly direction from Feathertop Rise, through the PAW across The Avenue to Picton Terrace.

 

Through the submissions, it was also noted that the residents of Feathertop Rise use the PAW to access bus services, located on The Avenue. Administration has noted that should the PAW close, the residents of Feathertop Rise would need to walk up to 600 metres to the nearest bus stop, which is still within walking distance for these residents.

 

Access to Community Facilities and Services

 

The Policy stipulates that where a PAW is considered to provide an important access route to community facilities and services, closure shall generally not be supported.

 

The PAW provides residents with access to existing community facilities and services as follows:

 

·        For residents west of the PAW, the PAW provides pedestrian access to the local centre on Greenpark Road. Although an alternative route along Whitcombe Way provides similar distance to the local centre, Whitcombe Way provides for a pedestrian route that has a steeper topography than the route that incorporates the PAW; and

 

·        The PAW provides for better access to public open space areas. For residents west of The Avenue, the PAW forms part of a route for access to Ian Robbins Park. For residents east of the PAW (on Feathertop Rise), the PAW forms part of a route for access to Highview Park.

 

 

 

In light of the above, although existing access to community facilities and services can be provided on the existing road network (such as on Whitcombe Way), the PAW provides an alternative (and important) access to these facilities and services.

 

Anti-Social Behaviour Considerations Related to the PAW

 

The Policy stipulates that Council should consider the role that the PAW may serve in facilitating anti-social behaviour, including graffiti, burglary and dumping of litter.

 

It is clear that there is anti-social behaviour occurring in the PAW. Administration has received numerous complaints from residents of graffiti in the PAW over the last four years. Similarly in this time, there have been requests registered for Administration to remove broken glass from the PAW, and to respond to the issue of motorbikes using the PAW. Rather than continuously responding to these complaints, Administration could investigate ways to mitigate this form of behaviour from occurring in the PAW.

 

Response to anti-social behaviour is a matter for WA Police. The City's Administration attempted to obtain data from WA Police, on the extent of crime and anti-social behaviour attributed to the PAW. WA Police has advised Administration that workloads and reporting requirements prevent WA Police in responding to Administration on this matter.

 

In light of the above points, there appears to be evidence to support the assertion that anti-social behaviour has taken place in the PAW. However (without access to data from WA Police), the extent to which anti-social behaviour is occurring is unknown.

 

Access for the Disabled and Seniors

 

The Policy stipulates that a PAW that provides access to community facilities and services is especially relevant in cases where seniors accommodation/aged persons homes are located in close proximity to the PAW. As there are no seniors accommodation/aged persons homes located in close proximity to the PAW, this matter is not relevant.

 

Availability of Alternative Access Routes

 

The Policy states that PAW closure shall only be supported if alternative viable access routes are available. Viable alternative access routes should be safe, convenient and not substantially longer than a route through an existing PAW.

 

The residents of Feathertop Rise would be affected by the PAW closure, as the walking distance to a bus stop (the closest bus stop would then be located on Greenpark Road) would increase by up to 200 metres. Administration also notes that should the PAW close, pedestrian movement could still occur on Whitcombe Way; however, Whitcombe Way does have a steeper topography that (as expressed through the submissions) is more challenging for some of the elderly residents and visitors of the area.

 

Alternatives to the Closure of the PAW’s

 

Should Council not support the PAW closure, the City (as the managing authority) is required to consider management techniques to minimise anti-social behaviour within the PAW. The following points outline what Administration currently does to send a message to the community that the PAW is being properly managed as a public space:

 

·        Prompt removal of graffiti;

·        Cleaning and making repairs to infrastructure quickly;

·        Ensuring that the walking surfaces are well maintained; and

·        Removal of vegetation overhanging the PAW.

 

Administration already undertakes the maintenance required to ensure the condition of the PAW is satisfactory. However, consideration should be given on methods to further reduce the prospect of anti-social behaviour in the PAW. This should occur through the preparation and implementation of a management strategy, in consultation with residents that are affected by the PAW. The management strategy should outline methods on how the City could improve and upgrade infrastructure in the PAW, and investigate the appropriateness of any one (or more) of the following being provided for the PAW: 

 

·        Clean and make repairs quickly;

·        Ensure that the walking surfaces are well maintained;

·        Improve lighting (brighter lights) to enhance visibility at both ends of the PAW or install lighting along the route of the PAW;

·        Install safety mirrors to improve sight lines;

·        Clear weeds and shrubs;

·        Install permeable fencing;

·        Increase passive surveillance;

·        Mobile CCTV;

·        Install signage;

·        Density matting, and climbing plants on fencing subject to vandalism. This technique can also make accessing the abutting properties more difficult;

·        Install more bollards to restrict vehicle access;

·        Closing PAW during vulnerable times (i.e. sunset to sunrise); and/or

·        Establish security patrols.

 

Conclusion

 

In light of the above points, Administration does not support the closure of the PAW, given that the PAW is used regularly by local residents, as expressed through the submissions. The PAW contributes to pedestrian permeability, and provides residents with a convenient alternative to walking and cycling on other routes.

 

Although anti-social behaviour is evident in the PAW, closing the PAW would disadvantage residents that do not reside on properties adjoining the PAW. However, Administration notes the concerns of the adjoining residents relating to anti-social behaviour. Therefore, Administration recommends that the PAW does not close, but rather a management strategy be prepared to investigate ways in which the PAW could be managed to deter anti-social behaviour.

Statutory Compliance

The City must comply with Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997 and Regulation 9 of the Land Administration Regulations 1998, dealing with public advertising, objections and service agency responses to the proposed PAW closure.

 

The Department of Lands has advised that, where a local authority makes a request under Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997, the local authority must indemnify the Minister for Lands in respect of that closure.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:


 

 

 “4     Civic Leadership - Working with others to ensure the best use of our resources.

4.2    Working With Others - The community is a desirable place to live and work as the City works with others to deliver the most appropriate outcomes.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

As discussed in the 'Comment' section above, the request to close the PAW has been considered in reference to the City's Local Planning Policy for Pedestrian Access Ways.

 

The Department of Planning has prepared a 'Procedure for the Closure of Pedestrian Access Ways – Planning Guidance' (the Procedure), which provides guidance to process and assess requests to close PAW's. The Procedure outlines the role and process of the local government, Western Australian Planning Commission and the Department of Lands when considering requests to close PAW's.

 

The Procedure outlines one of two processes that should be followed when considering a request to close a PAW. The first being when the PAW closure request is in accordance with a WAPC endorsed pedestrian and cycle access plan, and the second being when there is no WAPC endorsed pedestrian and cycle access plan. As there is no WAPC endorsed pedestrian and cycle access plan that affects the PAW, the process as below should be followed:

 

·        The local government receives a request to close a PAW;

 

·        The local government refers the PAW closure request to relevant infrastructure providers and other relevant agencies;

 

·        The local government consults the community likely to be affected by the PAW closure using two or more of the following methods that it considers appropriate:

 

o   placement of signs at either end of the pedestrian access way advising of the proposal to close the pedestrian access way;

o   press release and advertisement in the local newspaper and other media (the advertisement in the newspaper is required under Section 58 of the Land Administration Act 1997);

o   direct mail out to households likely to be affected by the closure;

o   liaison with local community groups;

o   stakeholder workshops;

o   information sessions and discussion groups;

o   questionnaire surveys; and

o   public displays.

 

Administration considered the use of an advertisement in the Wanneroo Times, a direct mail out to potentially affected households and signage at either end of the pedestrian accessway as appropriate forms of consultation in this instance.

 

·        The local government then assesses the proposal. Council would then resolve to close (or not close) the PAW, and advise all affected landowners of its decision.

 


 

 

Should Council resolve to approve the closure of the PAW (contrary to Administration's recommendation), the City is required to seek the endorsement of the Western Australian Planning Commission prior to referring the proposal to the Minister for Lands for final approval.

Financial Implications

Should Council resolve not to grant the request for the PAW to be closed, financial implications would depend on management strategies that would be implemented to mitigate anti-social behaviour.

Previous Items:                                  CB06-11/12 Report  CB06-11/12 Resolution  Proposed Excision and Purchase of a portion of Crown Reserve 45553, Hidden Valley Park, Clarkson - Ordinary Council - 13 Nov 2012 7.00pm      

 

Issue

To consider entering into a Deed of Agreement with the Western Power Corporation (WPC) and the Public Transport Authority (PTA) to facilitate the decommissioning of a section of a 525mm reinforced concrete City storm water pipeline located within Lot 501, Reserve 45553, (10) Hidden Valley Park, Clarkson and the subsequent installation of a replacement section of pipeline in Lot 501 and a portion of Lot 608 (24K) Hidden Valley Park, Clarkson (owned in freehold by the WPC).        As a result of the proposed installation of the City's infrastructure into WPC freehold land, Council is also to consider entering into a Deed of Easement for drainage purposes with the WPC over Lot 608.

 

Background

"WPC/PTA proposed purchase"

 

At its Ordinary Council Meeting on 13 November 2012, a report was presented to Council (CB06-11/12) that detailed the proposed excision and purchase of a 945m2 portion of Lot 501, (10) Hidden Valley Retreat, Clarkson, Reserve 45553 (Sub-Station Extension Area) (Attachment 1 refers).

 

Council resolved as follows:

 

“1.     NOTES that under Sections 28 & 49 of the Energy Operators (Powers) Act 1979 Western Power Corporation may issue a Notice of Entry on the 945m2 portion of Crown Reserve 45553 to commence civil works for the electrification of the railway to Butler;

2.       APPROVES the ENTERING into a conditional contract of sale of land with Western Power Corporation for the purchase of a 945m2 portion (subject to survey) of Crown Reserve 45553, Hidden Valley Park, 10 Hidden Valley Retreat, Clarkson at market value determined by the Valuer General plus GST if applicable;

3.       APPROVES BY ABSOLUTE MAJORITY the unbudgeted expenditure of approximately $7,700 including GST pursuant to Section 6.8(b) of the Local Government Act 1995;

4.       AUTHORISES the Chief Executive Officer to publish a local public notice of the City of Wanneroo's intention to enter into a conditional contract of sale with Western Power Corporation subject to the requirements of Section 152 of the Planning and Development Act 2005 Department of Regional Development and Lands Guidelines and Section 3.58(3) of the Local Government Act 1995;

5.       AUTHORISES the affixing of the Common Seal of the City of Wanneroo, and execute a conditional contract of sale of land between the City and Western Power Corporation;

6.       SUBJECT to Western Power Corporation entering into a conditional contract of sale of land with the City of Wanneroo, AUTHORISES the excision and purchase of a 945m2 portion (subject to survey) of Crown Reserve 45553, Hidden Valley Park, 10 Hidden Valley Retreat, Clarkson at 5% unimproved market value determined by the Valuer General plus GST if applicable; and

7.       NOTES a further report will be presented to Council with any submissions to the advertisements for the excision, purchase and disposal of the portion of Crown Reserve 45553 and detailing the negotiated sale of the 945m2 portion of Hidden Valley Park.”

As per Council resolution 4, Administration arranged for the publication of public notices, the details of which are outlined in the 'Consultation' section of this report. No submissions were received by the City.

 

No other resolutions have been able to be progressed by Administration as the excision, purchase and disposal of the subject portion of Lot 501 has been delayed, the reasons being:

 

·    the initial valuation of $154,000 (including GST) to purchase the Sub Station Area provided verbally by Landgate Valuation Services on 12 October 2012 and in writing on 25 March 2013 was only indicative. The Department of Lands (DOL) has still not provided the latest market valuation of the land despite repeated requests by Administration. The DOL advised on 21 November 2014 that it has prepared and lodged a briefing note with the Minister for Lands and the release of the latest market valuation to the City is progressing through its internal approval process; and

 

·    the discovery of a storm water pipeline within the Sub-Station Extension Area (see below).

 

In accordance with Section 86 of the Land Administration Act 1997 and subject to the Crown Land DOL Guidelines for the disposal of Section 152 reserves, the City will be required to pay 5% of the unimproved market value determined by the Valuer General (including GST which will be an unbudgeted expenditure) to the DOL to acquire the Sub-Station Extension Area as a standalone lot.

 

"WPC Works – Storm Water Pipeline"

 

On 24 October 2012 the WPC issued the City with a written 'Notice of Entry' under Sections 28 & 49 of the Energy Operators (Powers) Act 1979 to access the Sub-Station Extension Area to commence civil works to meet the PTA's timeline for the electrification of the railway extension. The civil works entailed earth works, construction of equipment foundations, cable trenching, site surfacing, drainage works, modification of the earthing grid and the installation of electrical equipment and underground cables. The fence line of Lot 476 was modified and extended to incorporate and secure the perimeter of the Sub-Station Extension Area prior to the land being excised, purchased by the City and subsequently disposed of to the WPC, subject to relevant Council and Ministerial approval and legislative requirements being met.

 

On 7 December 2012, the WPC advised the City in writing that its earthing contractor had uncovered a 525mm reinforced concrete City storm water pipeline in the portion of Lot 501 proposed to be excised and sold. The subject section of storm water pipeline forms part of a large pipeline network that disposes its storm catchment contents into abutting Lot 13043 (Reserve 45704) to the immediate north of Lot 501. Lot 13043 is vested to the City for the purpose of 'drainage' and is a sump. This section of pipeline did not show up on the WPC's searches and enquiries during detailed design and planning of the resultant earth works and site preparation.

 

 

"Replacement Pipe"

 

The subject section of storm water pipeline cannot remain in the Sub-Station Extension Area once the land has been excised and disposed of as the City would require an easement to facilitate access to it to maintain and attend to it should it fail. Subsequently, it has been agreed between all parties, subject to Council and Ministerial approval that given the fact that the WPC cannot grant an easement to the City to allow its officers access to the expanded Sub-Station due to the nature of the high voltage power infrastructure that it contains, the only feasible way forward is for the City to disable and decommission that section of the storm water pipeline that traverses under the Sub-Station Extension Area by cutting and capping it and leaving the redundant section in the ground.

 

The WPC has recorded and referenced the location and specification of the section of storm water pipeline that is proposed to become redundant. The City proposes to construct a new section of storm water pipeline in an alternative portion of the City's remaining managed portion of Lot 501. However, in order to discharge storm water into Lot 13043,  a portion of the proposed new storm water pipeline will be required to be installed in the south-western portion of Lot 608 (24K) Hidden Valley Retreat, Clarkson. Lot 608 is owned in fee-simple by the WPC and is required to accommodate future line entries for the Sub-Station contained on Lot 476. The City cannot access Lot 13043 without utilising the subject portion of Lot 608.

 

The WPC has agreed to an easement in favour of the City for an area of approximately 22.2m2 in the south-western portion of its fee-simple Lot 608. Construction Plan 2931-1-1 details the proposed decommission points of the subject section of pipeline and its proposed re-routed path (refer to Attachment 2). A Deed of Easement is required to be entered into to outline the terms of the proposed easement and this will be annexed to the proposed Deed of Agreement.

Detail

The purpose of this report is for Council to consider entering into a Deed of Agreement with the WPC and the PTA to facilitate the decommissioning of a section of a 525mm reinforced concrete City storm water pipeline located within the Sub-Station Extension Area.

 

A Deed of Easement will also be required to be entered into between the City and the WPC for drainage purposes over a portion of WPC freehold Lot 608. This is because a section of the proposed new replacement storm water pipeline will be required to be located in the south-western section of Lot 608 in order to discharge its storm water contents into the City's drainage sump contained within Lot 13043. This is the only feasible access point.

 

Whilst the Sub-Station Extension Area is still vested in the City for 'public recreation' purposes, the WPC has occupied and undertaken civil works on the site, installed fencing and essentially the area now forms part of the pre-existing Sub-Station that is located on Lot 476. This is allowable under Sections 28 & 49 of the Energy Operators (Powers) Act 1979.

 

"Works"

 

The WPC has extended its pre-existing Sub-Station on Lot 476 eastwards into Lot 501. As a section of the City's storm water drainage pipeline is currently located under the ground of the Sub-Station Extension Area, there is a requirement to cut and cap the existing pipeline and install a new storm water pipeline 2.5m east of the proposed new WPC property line (refer to Attachment 2). The WPC has advised the City in writing that no further area of Lot 501 will be required in the future to extend the Sub-Station further east.

 


 

The proposed project involves the realignment of an existing storm water drainage pipeline, construction of junction pits, a new drop structure to the drainage sump, new headwall and associated works at the outlet. The existing outlet and headwall structure is to be removed, existing junction pits filled in and the existing drainage pipes are to be sealed and capped.

 

As illustrated on construction plan 2931-1-1 (refer to Attachment 2) the City intends to cut and cap the existing storm water pipeline a minimum of 3m inside the extension of the WPC's Lot 476 which is currently outside of its high security fenced area but within the Sub-Station Extension Area. This decommissioned section of redundant storm water pipeline will become the responsibility of the WPC and an indemnity provided to the City.

 

It has been identified that a Clearing Permit is required prior to native vegetation being removed to allow for the installation of the proposed new section of storm water pipeline to take place. Administration prepared a Clearing Plan which was approved by the Department of Environment Regulation (DER). The area proposed to be cleared is illustrated (refer to Attachment 3) and the Clearing Permit issued by the DER will expire 5 July 2019.

 

The PTA, as driver of the Sub-Station extension project has agreed to pay the City the $115,500 estimated costs as calculated by Administration for the decommissioning of the subject section of storm water pipeline and the subsequent installation of a new section of storm water pipeline in the City's remaining managed area of Lot 501 and the WPC's Lot 608. The City will not schedule the proposed works until the funds have been received from the PTA.

 

Costs may increase if there are unforeseen circumstances (i.e. the $115,500 price is based on normal digging conditions; if limestone or hard rock is present the price could increase). A firm price cannot be established until works are complete.

 

A Deed of Agreement is required to be entered into between the relevant parties that will outline the required works, cash component involved, easement and relevant indemnity requirements. The Deed of Agreement will incorporate the following points (though not limited to):

 

·    that the required works will be undertaken by the City or its appointed contractor following receipt of the estimated $115,500 costs from the PTA. The PTA will therefore be required to be a party to the Deed of Agreement as well as WPC;

 

·    that the PTA pays the City the $115,500 estimated costs for the required works;

 

·    that the City reserves the right to claim additional costs from the PTA/WPC should the $115,500 estimated costs for the required works increases.

 

·    that the relevant indemnities and other provisions in relation to the works intended to take place are implemented to protect the City and the Minister for Lands;

 

·    that the redundant section of storm water pipeline be decommissioned and that the WPC assume full maintenance responsibility of this section of redundant infrastructure therein;

 

·    that the parties intention is for a Contract of Sale to be entered into in the future, whereby the City disposes of the land to the WPC.

 


 

·    that following the sale by the City to the WPC as detailed above, the City and WPC are to enter into a Deed of Easement for drainage purposes over a 22.2m2 portion of WPC fee-simple Lot 608 – a copy of the agreed Deed of Easement will be annexed to the Deed of Agreement in the first instance as recommended by the external solicitor Kott Gunning.

 

Consultation

 

In-principle support from the Minister for Lands has been received to the proposed excision, purchase and disposal of the Sub-Station Extension area. The DOL will appoint the City’s preferred surveyor to create the necessary Deposited Plan required to be lodged at Landgate.

 

In order to comply with the DOL's Section 152 reserve disposal guidelines, the City was required to demonstrate that it met the following criteria in relation to the proposed excision, purchase and sale of the Sub-Station Extension Area:

 

·    Sign post Lot 501 to indicate the proposed sale – two 1.8m x 0.9m signs were erected for a period of 35 days at Hester Avenue/Hidden Valley Retreat junction and Hidden Valley Retreat/Walyunga Boulevard junction, 1.25m from ground level. The signs were in place for a period of 35 days (14 May 2013 -17 June 2013) calling for public submissions, none of which were received;

 

·    Advertise in a local newspaper – two public notices were published in the North Coast Times and the Wanneroo Times on 14 May 2013 calling for public submissions for a period of 35 days (expiring 17 June 2013). In addition, the City advertised on its website under the 'your-say' link. No submissions were received in either instance;

 

·    Canvass nearby landowners by mail in order to demonstrate to the Minister for Lands the level of community support – the City wrote to all residences within the immediate surrounding area of the Sub-Station on 10 May 2013 (using the radius used by a previous WPC letter drop) calling for public submissions for a period of 35 days (expiring 17 June 2013). No submissions were received; and

 

·    Provide DOL with details and evidence of the level of public consultation undertaken together with the results of that submission – consultation information was provided in writing on 15 August 2013 stating that no submissions were received.

 

On 13 June 2014, the DOL advised in writing that no further advertising is required to be undertaken by the City even if the final yet to be disclosed price for the proposed purchase of the Sub-Station Extension Area changes.

 

On 19 September 2013, the PTA agreed in writing to fund the decommissioning of a section of the storm water pipeline and the installation of a new section of the storm water pipe line further to the east. It also confirmed in writing on 1 May 2014 that it will meet the estimated $115,500 (inclusive of GST) cost of the works.

 

Detailed scopes of the proposed storm water pipe line relocation works prepared by the City's Infrastructure Project unit were provided to the WPC on 30 January 2014.  Following some minor amendments to ensure safety and consistency of electrical supply, an amended scope was provided to the WPC on 11 March 2014 which the WPC advised was acceptable in writing on 12 March 2014.

 

The City will seek in-principle consent to the proposed Deed of Agreement and Deed of Easement from the Minister for Lands once the documentation has been drafted by the City's external solicitor, Kott Gunning.

 

The City's Infrastructure Projects unit supports the proposed Deed of Agreement and Deed of Easement which upon execution and receipt of monies from the PTA will enable Infrastructure Projects to commence and finalise the storm water drainage pipe decommission and re-installation works in mid-late 2015.

Comment

As a result of the WPC serving a 'Notice of Entry' on the City under Sections 28 & 49 of the Energy Operators (Powers) Act 1979 to enter the Sub-Station Extension Area, the WPC has occupied and undertaken civil works on the site and installed security fencing. The area therefore essentially now forms part of the Sub-Station that is located on Lot 476 despite the Sub-Station Extension Area still being vested in the City for 'public recreation' purposes.

 

Given the large areas of public open space within Clarkson and neighbouring suburbs, Administration considers that it is acceptable to excise, purchase and dispose of the portion of the previously undeveloped park section of Lot 501 which now contains the extended Sub-Station which has subsequently facilitated the extension of the public transport train network within the northern suburbs and proved to be a vital community service.

 

It is now imperative that Administration proceeds with arranging and executing the necessary legal documentation to procure the required monies from the PTA to facilitate the commencement of the necessary storm water pipeline decommission and relocation works and ensure that the relevant easement and indemnity provisions are in place to protect the relevant parties. Upon execution of the relevant legal agreements, each party will be aware of its responsibilities and obligations.

 

Statutory Compliance

The future proposed excision, purchase and sale of the Sub-Station Extension Area will be subject to Section 86 of the Land Administration Act 1997 and subject to the Crown Land DOL Guidelines for Section 152 reserves.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “3     Economy - Progressive, connected communities that enable economic growth and employment.

3.3    Easy to Get Around - The community is well connected and accessible with an integrated transport approach for all.

Financial Implications

The City's external solicitor Kott Gunning has estimated that a Deed of Agreement, Deed of Easement and a Contract of Sale would cost between $7,000 - $9,000 (plus GST and disbursements) This is a preliminary estimate and does not include settlement costs for completing the proposed purchase settlement from the Minister for Lands by the City and the subsequent sale settlement with the WPC.

 

The PTA, as driver of the Sub-Station extension project has agreed to pay the City the $115,500 estimated costs for the decommissioning of the subject section of storm water pipeline and the subsequent installation of a new section of storm water pipeline in the City's remaining managed area of Lot 501 and WPC freehold Lot 608. Costs may increase if there are unforeseen circumstances such as the presence of limestone/hard rock or the unearthing of unusual artefacts for instance. A firm price cannot be established until works are complete. In the event that the $115,500 estimated costs increase, the City reserves the right to request additional funding from the PTA or WPC and this will be outlined in the Deed of Agreement.

 

It will be funded by unbudgeted income in an equal amount from the PTA.

Issue

To consider entering into a new lease with the Wanneroo Business Association (Inc.) (WBA) over a portion of Lot 90 and Lot 91, Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo for the purpose of an office.

 

Background

The building known as Enterprise House (building) and located at 935 Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo is situated on Lots 90 and 91, and owned freehold by the City under Certificate of Title Volume 1095 Folio 593.

 

The land is currently zoned as 'Urban' under the Metropolitan Region Scheme and 'Centre' in the City of Wanneroo District Planning Scheme No.2 and forms part of an Agreed Structure Plan. The current zoning permits a variety of retail and commercial uses.

 

The building was subject to an internal fit-out by the City in 2005 to permit services associated with the establishment of a Business Growth Centre and incorporated the creation of office space for lease, meeting rooms, a training room and a reception area.

 

The WBA currently leases an office (Office One) within the building that comprises an area of 14.2481m² (Attachment 1 refers). Internal fit out of Office One includes carpet floor coverings, vertical blinds, suspended panel ceilings with recessed fluorescent lighting and single pedestrian access door. The existing three (3) year lease, which commenced 12 March 2012 was approved by Council at its Ordinary Council Meeting of 3 April 2012 (CB06-04/12) and will expire 11 March 2015. Under the terms of its existing lease, the WBA has a non-exclusive access right to designated common areas of the building that incorporate the toilets, meeting rooms, tea preparation area and the reception area.

 

The WBA is guided by a volunteer board of directors drawn from many different business backgrounds and companies offering vast experience in all aspects of business. It is a professional organisation which acts as a representative body on matters that may affect businesses at a local, state or federal level and works with government bodies and organisations to improve business conditions and enhance opportunities within the Wanneroo region.

Detail

The WBA agreed to enter into a new three (3) year lease with the City for Office One commencing 12 March 2015 in writing on 19 November 2014. This in principle lease agreement is the subject of this report.

 

Under the terms of the City’s current Tenancy Policy approved by Council, the WBA is categorised as a 'commercial' tenant being a non-exempt disposition under the Local Government Act 1995. In accordance with the Tenancy Policy, annual rent is to be negotiated at Market Rate. Whilst the WBA is an incorporated body, the activity being undertaken is essentially a profit making venture.

 

 

 

The City currently receives an annual lease income stream from Office One of $3,771.69 per annum (plus GST) for rent with annual CPI increases.

 

A market valuation was sought from a licensed valuer to establish the current market rent for Office One as per required legislation and a rate of $270.21/m² (plus GST) per annum, inclusive of variable outgoings was suggested by the licensed valuer.

 

The licensed valuer concluded that the current market value of Office One is $3,850 per annum (plus GST) gross inclusive of variable outgoings and with the right to use the common area facilities of the building.

Administration and the WBA have negotiated a rent of $3,850 per annum (plus GST) gross inclusive of variable outgoings being a rate of $270.21/m², inclusive of variable outgoings subject to Council approval.

Accordingly, the following essential terms for the proposed lease have been agreed with the WBA, subject to Council approval:-

 

Leased Premises:

Exclusive use of 'Office One' being an area of 14.2481m² and use of the Enterprise House building common areas to the Wanneroo Business Association (Inc.)

Permitted Purpose:

Infrastructure Maintenance and Planning & Sustainability support the terms of the proposed new lease.

 

 

 

Comment

 

Should Council agree to the proposed new lease, given that the proposed lease is not an ‘exempt disposition’, it will be necessary to publish a local notice of the proposal inviting public submissions.  Subject to no submissions being received from the advertising process, formal consent to the proposed new lease as outlined in this report is sought from Council.

Should any submissions be received, the proposed new lease will not be executed until a further report is be presented to Council for consideration.

Administration supports the proposed new lease to the WBA for the following reasons:

·      to assist with business growth and development within the City of Wanneroo;

 

·      to create and promote local business opportunities within the City of Wanneroo; and

 

·      to ensure the economic well being of the business community within the City of Wanneroo in a professional and ethical manner.

Statutory Compliance

Regulation 30 of the Local Government (Functions and General) Regulations 1996 provides a basis under which certain ‘dispositions’ are exempt from the requirements of Section 3.58 of the Local Government Act 1995 (Act), including sub-regulation 30(2)(b), which states:-

 

          “30(2) A disposition of land is an exempt disposition if –

                   (b)     the land is disposed of to a body, whether incorporated or not –

(i)         the objects of which are of a charitable, benevolent, religious, cultural, educational, recreational, sporting or other like nature; and

 

(ii)        the members of which are not entitled or permitted to receive any pecuniary profit from the body’s transactions”

 

The constitution of the WBA has the following stated Objects:-

 

“(A)        To establish maintain and conduct an Association of a business recreational social non-political and non-sectarian character for the purpose of promoting and fostering the exchange of business manufacturing and trading knowledge between members.

(B)         To promote social contact between and to meet regularly.

(C)         To assist members by providing advice and guidance when requested to do so.

(D)         To represent members in matters of interest to members.”

 

Given the activities, role and stated objectives of the WBA, it is considered it would not meet the requirements of sub-regulation 30(2)(b) of the Act and therefore the proposed new lease is not deemed an exempt disposition.  Accordingly, prior to agreeing to enter into the proposed new lease with the WBA, the City is required to give local public notice of the proposed disposition in accordance with the requirements of Section 3.58 of the Act. 

 

The public notice advertisement is required to fully comply with the requirements under the following sections of the Act with respect to the proposed disposition:

 

·        Section 3.58(3) of the Local Government Act 1995 states:

A local government can dispose of property (including leasing) other than by public tender or auction if, before agreeing to dispose of the property:       

(a)     It gives a local public notice of the proposed disposition –

(i)      describing the property concerned;

(ii)      giving details of the proposed disposition; and

(iii)     inviting submissions to be made to the local government before a date to be specified in the notice, being a date not less than 2 weeks after the notice is first given.”

 

·    Section 3.58(4) of the Local Government Act 1995 states:

The details of a proposed disposition that are required by subsection (3)(a)(ii) include:

(a)     the names of all other parties concerned;

(b)     the consideration to be received by the local government for the disposition; and

(c)     the market value of the disposition –

(i)      as ascertained by a valuation carried out not more than 6 months before the proposed disposition”.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “3     Economy - Progressive, connected communities that enable economic growth and employment.

3.2    Growing Business - Our community is a preferred place for business to locate and grow.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

The proposed new lease is consistent with the City’s current Tenancy Policy.

Financial Implications

The proposed new lease will generate an annual income stream to the City of $3,850 per annum (plus GST) gross, inclusive of all outgoings. Annual CPI increases will apply. The WBA will be responsible for the cost of cleaning, internal repairs and maintenance and public liability insurance.

CITY OF WANNEROO Agenda OF Elected Members' Briefing Session 27 January, 2015                          253

3.13  Proposed lease of Tenancy North to Tracey Cottrell, portion of Lot 101 (3) Rocca Way, Wanneroo

Issue

To consider a commercial lease over an 80m² vacant ground floor commercial tenancy known as Tenancy North at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre to Tracey Cottrell for the operation of a hair salon.

 

Background

The Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre (the Centre) is situated at the corner of Dundebar Road and Rocca Way and was officially opened on 25 October 2009.  The land on which the Centre is situated is Lot 101 on Deposited Plan 66852 and is comprised in Certificate of Title Volume 2784 Folio 44 and is owned freehold by the City.

 

The ground floor comprises two commercial tenancies, one of which is Café Elixir (facing Rocca Way, Wanneroo) which is under a lease arrangement that commenced 1 September 2009, and the other is Tenancy North (facing Dundebar Road, Wanneroo).  Tenancy North (Attachment 1 refers) is an area of approximately 80m².  It has been vacant since 17 March 2014 but prior to this date was leased and operated as a hair salon.

 

Since 17 March 2014, the City has endeavoured, on two separate occasions (27 May and 15 July 2014), to seek a new tenant through the placing of advertisements in the Wanneroo Times.  The advertisements called for expressions of interest from parties wishing to lease the vacant area.  Each occasion consisted of two stages, the first (Stage 1) being to see who was interested in leasing the premises, and the second stage (Stage 2) required interested parties to submit a formal proposal to lease the facility.  As part of Stage 2, interested parties were sent an information package about the tenancy which included a selection criteria from which formal submissions were assessed.

 

Despite receiving initial interest from Stage 1 on both occasions, the City did not receive any formal applications to lease the premises from either occasion by the relevant closing dates.  As a result, the City was contemplating engaging a commercial real estate agent to seek a tenant, however two formal proposals to lease the area were submitted to the City in late October 2014.  Both applications were assessed against the selection criteria outlined in the information package and a decision was made, subject to Council approval, to negotiate a lease with one of the applicants.

Detail

A proposed new lease has been negotiated with the successful applicant, Tracey Cottrell.

 

Tracey Cottrell's application, likewise with the other application received, was assessed against the selection criteria.  In addition to assessing the submissions in this manner, the City also looked at the submissions holistically.  The successful applicant has considerably more years experience in the hairdressing industry and currently operates her own hairdressing business and has done so for the past 4.5 years.

 

 

 

 

It is therefore proposed, subject to Council approval and the requirements of the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985 being satisfied, to enter into a ‘private treaty’ semi gross lease arrangement under the following essential terms:

 

Lessee

Tracey Cottrell (or nominated company) trading as Hennaberrys For Hair.

Premises

Tenancy North at the Wanneroo Library & Cultural Centre being an area of approximately 80m².

Proposed Use

Hair Salon.

Lease Term

Five (5) years with no options.

Commencement Date

Within four (4) weeks of the lease being signed.

Commencing Rent

$29,000 per annum (plus GST) payable monthly in advance.

Rent Reviews

Annually in accordance with CPI.

Outgoings

Nil, except for those services (such as electricity) directly metered or attributable to the Premises only.

Fit out

The tenancy is already fitted out as a hair salon with three (3) built in hair washing basins with chairs attached and the applicant has indicated that she is only contemplating minor cosmetic changes.

Water Rates (not usage)

Lessee responsibility.

Council Rates

Payable by Lessee as assessed.

Emergency Services Levy

Lessee responsibility.

Maintenance & Cleaning

The Lessee will be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the internal space of the Premises including any Lessor’s fixtures and any external signage and lighting installed by the Lessee.  The Lessee will not be responsible for items of a structural nature.

Insurance

The Lessee shall take out all appropriate insurance cover for workers compensation, Lessee’s and Lessor’s fixtures and fittings, plate glass and the like but will not be responsible for building insurance.

Bond

The Lessee will be required to submit a bond of $5,000 which will be held by the City for the full term of the lease in a non-interest bearing account.

 

To comply with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1995, a revised market rental valuation was obtained in November 2014 following an initial valuation that was conducted in May 2014, revealing a rental of $29,000 per annum plus GST.

 

The previous tenant paid an annual lease fee of $27,751.44 plus GST.

Consultation

The essential terms of the proposed lease have been prepared in consultation with the tenant.

 

 

 

It is proposed that, subject to Council approval to the lease, formal commercial lease documentation will be prepared by one of the City's external solicitors and will include the disclosure requirements of the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1995.

Comment

Should Council agree to the lease, given that the proposed lease is not an ‘exempt disposition’, it will be necessary to publish a local notice of the proposal inviting public submissions.  Subject to no submissions being received from the advertising process, formal consent to the lease as outlined in this report is sought from Council.

 

Should any submissions be received, the lease will not be executed until a further report is presented to Council for consideration.

 

Administration supports the proposed new lease of Tenancy North to Tracey Cottrell as outlined in this report.

Statutory Compliance

The public notice advertisement will fully comply with the requirements of Section 3.58 of the Local Government Act 1995 with respect to the proposed disposition.

In addition, the proposed lease tenure complies with the requirement of the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Act 1985 whereby a minimum tenure term of five (5) years is required along with the provision of a Disclosure Statement.

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “3     Economy - Progressive, connected communities that enable economic growth and employment.

3.2    Growing Business - Our community is a preferred place for business to locate and grow.

Risk Management Considerations

Nil

Policy Implications

The proposed lease has been negotiated in accordance with the 'commercial' guidelines as outlined in the City's Tenancy Policy.

Financial Implications

The proposed lease will generate an annual income stream to the City of $29,000 (plus GST) per annum gross incremented to CPI on an annual basis, inclusive of all outgoings except electricity.

Issue

To consider amendments to the 2014/2015 Bus Shelter Installation Program.

 

Background

Council considered report “IN08-06/14 Bus Shelter Installation Program” at its meeting of 24 June 2014 and resolved in part as follows:

"2. "ENDORSES the proposed bus shelter installation program as shown on Attachment 2 as the basis for community consultation; and

3. NOTES that a report will be presented to Council on the outcomes of the community consultation, should the Director Infrastructure consider that the proposed 2014/15 Bus Shelter Installation Program require significant amendments to reflect the feedback from the community."

The locations endorsed by Council for the bus shelter installations as per the above resolution are listed below:

Bus Stop No.

This report considers the outcome of the community consultation and information received from the Public Transport Authority (PTA) and recommends an amended 2014/2015 Bus Shelter Installation Program.

Detail

The 2014/15 program was referred to the PTA whereby support was given for the installation of bus shelters at all stops except bus stop no. 23498 - Viridian Drive after Turquoise Loop (Attachment 1 refers) and bus stop no. 26506 -  Benenden Avenue Before Santorini Parade (Attachment 2 refers).  PTA advised that the bus stops at these locations are not on its final alignments for the bus routes through the area and are subject to change in future.

 

The City also received one objection from a resident at the property adjacent the proposed installation of a bus shelter at Bus Stop No. 26107 – Waldburg Drive, Tapping.  The resident objected to the installation of the bus shelter at front of the property raising concerns that sightlines may be impeded.

In order to achieve the best outcome for residents and public transport users within the City, priority is given to bus stops qualifying for co-funding through PTA's Bus Shelter Grants Scheme (BSGS).  To qualify for PTA funding under the BSGS, the nominated bus stop requires an average minimum patronage of 15 boarding passengers per weekday. Council confirmed this position on 2 April 2013, (Item IN06-04/13 refers) and resolved as follows:

"SUPPORTS the ongoing practice of giving priority to installing bus shelters at sites that meet the Public Transport Authority's Bus Shelter Grant Scheme".

 

The City can still proceed with the installation of bus shelters at locations with lower patronage but will need to fully fund the project as the PTA would not provide the 50/50 funding for these stops.

Consultation

The City conducted consultation with residents directly affected by the installation of a bus shelter adjacent to their property as well as users of the bus stops.  Residents directly affected by the proposed installation of bus shelters were notified in writing of the proposed installation and users of the bus stop were notified by the erection of signage at the bus stops for a period of two weeks.

 

During the consultation period the City only received one objection in relation to the installation of a bus shelter at Bus Stop No. 26107 – Waldburg Drive, Tapping.  The resident's main concerns regarding the installation of a bus shelter is the reduction in sightlines when accessing and exiting his/her property.  No other responses were received by Administration during the consultation period.

Comment

While the City would like to encourage public transport use by providing facilities at all bus stops it is committed to achieving the best result for all public transport users by funding those bus stops with the highest patronage which also attract 50/50 grant funding from PTA. 

 

Given that the PTA does not support the installation of shelters at Bus Stop No. 26506 – Benenden Avenue and Bus Stop No. 23498 – Viridian Drive, Administration requested the latest patronage statistics from the PTA to identify alternative stops for bus shelters to be placed.

 

Based on the latest patronage data provided by the PTA, Administration identified that Bus Stop No. 26937 - Joondalup Drive after Mistletoe Drive (Attachment 3 refers) which has patronage numbers of 44, and Bus Stop No. 17998 - Marmion Avenue after Anchorage Drive (Attachment 4 refers) which has patronage numbers of 38 as most suitable for the installation of bus shelters. PTA has also indicated its’ support for the installation of bus shelters at both these stops.

 

With respect to Bus Stop No. 26107 – Waldburg Drive, Tapping, Administration considers that the sightlines at the location to be adequate.  It is considered that the location at which the bus shelter is to be installed would not impede sightlines for the residents when accessing and exiting their property. Administration recommends that the City proceed with the installation of a bus shelter at Bus Stop No. 26107 - Waldburg Drive, Tapping.

 


 

A number of bus stops, at which bus shelters have been proposed, have already been upgraded to disability standards by the PTA without consideration to the installation of a bus shelter. In these instances, an additional section of concrete footing will need to be installed to comply with Disability Standards. The cost associated with this additional work will need to be fully funded by the City.

 

The proposed revised 2014/15 Bus Shelter Installation Program is listed below:

Bus Stop No.

PTA has agreed to the installation of the bus shelters at the above locations subject to the City contributing to the bus shelter installation on a 50/50 basis and the City fully funding the cost of additional section of concrete footings.

Statutory Compliance

Nil

Strategic Implications

The proposal aligns with the following objective within the Strategic Community Plan 2013 – 2023:

 “3     Economy - Progressive, connected communities that enable economic growth and employment.

3.3    Easy to Get Around - The community is well connected and accessible with an integrated transport approach for all.

Risk Management Considerations

Policy Implications

Nil

Financial Implications

The full cost of installation per bus shelter is in the order of $10,000, however if the location meets the minimum patronage requirement for 50/50 grant funding under the Bus Shelter Grants Scheme, the cost to the City per shelter will be in the order of $5,000. 

The current annual allocation in the 10 Year Bus Shelter Program of $50,000 per year allows for the maximum installation of 10 shelters per year under the 50/50 arrangement with the Public Transport Authority or 5 shelters per year without the 50/50 arrangement.

 

Additionally bus stops that have already been upgraded to meet disability standards by the PTA require an additional section of concrete footing to be installed at a cost of $1,500 per location.  Five locations within the City have been identified as requiring additional sections of concrete footing to be installed.  This will result in a total additional cost of $7,500 above the budgeted $50,000 allocated for PR-1055 Bus Shelter Installation Program.

 

The additional cost can be accommodated by re-allocating savings from Project Number PR-2656 - Traffic Management Projects- Various.  This is in line with the City’s Accounting Policy Section 3(g)(c) which states:

          “Circumstances:

           …the budget allocation for a capital work project is insufficient

          Action:

In accordance with Section 6.8 of the Local Government Act 1995 by way of a report and recommendation to the Council seeking authorisation of the expenditures and to endorse the necessary budget variation.”

3.15  Proposed Speed Limit Change - Ocean Keys Boulevard

File Ref:                                              3125V02 – 14/358682

Responsible Officer:                           A/Director Infrastructure

Issue

To seek formal endorsement of a proposal to apply a 40km/h speed limit on Ocean Keys Boulevard, Clarkson between Marmion Avenue and Key Largo Drive. Refer to Attachment 1 for location map.

 

Background

In December 2010, the City applied to Main Roads WA (MRWA) to implement a 40 km/h speed zone on Ocean Keys Boulevard, Clarkson between Pensacola Terrace and Key Largo Drive.  This request was denied at the time as MRWA was in the process of undertaking trials of permanent 40km/h speed limit reduction on the retail/alfresco strip along Albany Highway through Victoria Park (refer to Attachment 2).

 

In May 2014, after receiving a number of complaints regarding vehicle speeds and pedestrian safety on Ocean Keys Boulevard, Administration contacted MRWA and requested an update on the 40 km/h speed zone trials.  In September 2014, MRWA responded and requested updated traffic counts for Ocean Keys Boulevard to support the City's application for a 40 km/h speed zone.  These counts were undertaken in October 2014 and provided to MRWA for further assessment.

 

Following the review of the data for Ocean Keys Boulevard, MRWA has agreed to the implementation of a 40 km/h speed zone on Ocean Keys Boulevard between Marmion Avenue and Key Largo Drive (which encompasses the City's previous request of a speed limit reduction between Pensacola Terrace and Key Largo Drive) subject to the formal endorsement of the proposal by Council (refer to Attachment 3).

Detail

The section of Ocean Keys Boulevard between Key Largo Drive and Marmion Avenue has been constructed as a two lane divided road with parking and retail on both sides and provides for the movement of buses, cyclists and pedestrians.  The layout of this section of road is consistent with a Town Centre main street.

 

This section of Ocean Keys Boulevard carries a high volume of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic and currently operates under the default urban speed limit of 50 km/h.  Four formalised pedestrian crossing points are present on Ocean Keys Boulevard.  A zebra crossing is provided just east of Ebb Way and three pedestrian crossing points with median refuge islands are provided east of Pensacola Terrace, west of Ebb way and west of Key Largo Drive.

 

There have been numerous concerns raised by the community with respect to the vehicle speeds and pedestrian safety along this highly trafficked retail section of Ocean Key Boulevard.

Consultation

Consultation has mainly been with MRWA who is the authority delegated to assign speed limits and install traffic signs on public roads in WA.

 

Comment

As a general rule, motorists will drive in accordance with the speed environment of the road and not necessarily in accordance with its posted speed limit.  The predictability and homogeneity of the road network should be considered in the speed zoning process.  Roads with a similar road environment should be speed zoned the same to provide a predictable environment for road users.

 

Consideration also needs to be given to the safety implications associated with speed zoning.  The majority of conflicts along this section of Ocean Keys Boulevard are likely to be between vehicles and pedestrians.  The 'safe speed' cornerstone recognises that under a safe systems approach, a speed of 30km/h is considered as being the highest survivable speed for a collision between vehicles and vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists.  The safe system speed for vehicle and vulnerable road user conflicts should be considered in the speed zoning process. 

 

MRWA does not support a speed limit of 30km/h for Ocean Keys Boulevard as it considers that the proposed 40km/h speed zone is more in keeping with motorists' expectations and the prevailing road environment.  The recorded 85th percentile speed of 38km/h on Ocean Keys Boulevard further justifies the proposed 40km/h speed limit.  Implementing a 30km/h speed limit along this section of Ocean Keys Boulevard would only result in low compliance rate.

 

A reduction in vehicle speed reduces both the likelihood and severity of road crashes. Considering the high number of vehicles and pedestrians on this section of Ocean Keys Boulevard, any reduction in vehicle speed as a result of a speed limit reduction is expected to have a positive road safety outcome.

 

Administration supports MRWA's proposal to apply a posted 40km/h speed limit on this section of Ocean Keys Boulevard between Marmion Avenue and Key Largo Drive, Clarkson and recommends that Council endorse this proposal.

3.16  Parking Prohibitions - Headingly Crescent, Butler

Issue

To consider the implementation of parking prohibitions along Headingly Crescent, Butler.

 

Background

The City has received a request from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services to consider parking prohibitions on Headingly Crescent to support the safe and efficient operation of the Butler Career Fire Station which opened in early January 2015.

Detail

Headingly Crescent, Butler is classified as a Local Access Road within the City's Functional Road Hierarchy and connects Lukin Drive with Connolly Drive providing access to Brighton Catholic Primary School and a recently opened service station, both of which have alternative access onto Connolly Drive Access Road.  Refer to Attachment 1 for a location plan.

 

Daily traffic volumes in Headingly Crescent recorded in August 2014 show an average weekday traffic volume of 372 vehicles per day.  Headingly Crescent is predominantly used as a drop-off and pick-up point for parents during school times with an average of 123 vehicles per hour between 8am and 9am and 113 vehicles per hour between 2pm and 3pm.

 

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services has recently commenced operation of the Butler Career Fire Station at Lot 4001, Headingly Crescent.  This is expected to conflict with the current on-street parking which takes place on Headingly Crescent during school hours.  In parking near the Fire Station, motorists pose the risk of blocking the passage of emergency vehicles.  A site inspection undertaken by Administration confirmed that the majority of parking on Headingly Crescent takes place on the western/northern side of the road with most vehicles parking off the carriageway on the nature strip.

Consultation

Administration met with the Principal of Brighton Catholic Primary School to inform him of the potential issues relating to the on-street parking and proposed parking prohibitions.  At this meeting it was agreed that some form of parking prohibitions on Headingly Crescent were required to allow for the safe and efficient operation of the Butler Fire Station and to reduce the risks associated with fire truck movements during an emergency response.

Comment

The City received a Development Application in April 2013 for approval to use Lot 4001 Headingly Crescent for the development of a fire station.  In this application, it was stated by MGA Town Planners that:

"Accordingly, there is limited opportunity for traffic conflicts and in particular, for traffic associated with school drop-offs/ pick-ups hindering the movement of emergency vehicles."

 

 

 

This application included the submission of a Transport Statement provided by a traffic consultant in support of the development which stated:

"Whilst the likelihood of unacceptable risk associated with school traffic is considered to be low, consideration should be given by the Local Authority to restricting parking on Headingly Crescent in the vicinity of the Fire Station and to ensure compliance by regular surveillance."

 

Additionally, the report concludes that "…the proposed development will have minimal adverse impact on safety and the satisfactory operation of the surrounding road network."

 

Administration conducted a site inspection on 9 December 2014 to observe traffic patterns and behaviour on Headingly Crescent and the surrounding road network.  On street parking on Headingly Crescent was observed only during school hours and predominantly took place on the nature strip on the northern/western side of Headingly Crescent (siding the school site).  During this site inspection, Administration also observed congestion issues on the Connolly Drive Access Road which could prevent emergency vehicles from directly accessing Connolly Drive during school pick up time.  During this time, it is expected that it would be necessary for emergency vehicles to use Lukin Drive to access the arterial road network.  This would require free movement along Headingly Crescent in a westerly/southerly direction.

 

The needs of Brighton Catholic Primary School have also been considered by Administration in the proposed parking prohibitions.  The location of Brighton Catholic Primary School, Irene McCormack Catholic College and Butler College being in close proximity to each other, places a large demand on the local road network, both in terms of traffic movement and in parking requirements.  In implementing parking prohibitions, it is acknowledged that any reduction in parking supply on Headingly Crescent is likely to increase parking demand in other areas which may adversely impact other parts of the local road network. While safety is of primary concern, Administration considers that the loss of on-street parking on Headingly Crescent should be minimised to limit these impacts. 

 

Administration has considered these issues and assessed the need for parking prohibitions on Headingly Crescent accordingly.

 

Based on the traffic consultant's Transport Statement and Administration's assessment of the situation, it is recommended that parking prohibitions be installed on the southern/eastern side of Headingly Crescent (siding the fire station site) as shown in Attachment 2. 

 

Administration does not consider that parking prohibitions on the northern/western side of Headingly Crescent (siding the school site) are necessary at this time.  Based on the site inspection it was considered that parking in these locations would not severely impact on the operations of the Butler Fire Station or pose increased safety risk to students or motorists.

Financial Implications

The provision of parking prohibitions incurs not only the initial cost of materials and installation of the signs but also the ongoing cost of maintenance due to vandalism and graffiti and the cost of enforcement.  The estimated cost of materials and labour to implement these parking prohibitions is approximately $1,000 which can be funded from Project No. PR‑2657: Parking Scheme Signage and Line Marking which has a total budget allocation of $20,000 in the 2014/15 Capital Works Program.

Recommendation

That Council:-

1.       APPROVES the installation of 'NO STOPPING' signs on the southern/western side of Headingly Crescent, Butler (siding the Fire Station site) between Lukin Drive and Connolly Drive Access Road as shown in Attachment 2;

2.       ADVISES Butler Career Fire Station and Brighton Catholic Primary School of Council's decision; and

3.       REQUESTS Brighton Catholic Primary School to advise parents of Council's decision.
