ASKING OF QUESTIONS WITH NOTICE

 

QWN12/10 - Cr. Michael Moran - DA 2004/136 East West Road Valla (Ref SF970)

Cr Moran enquired if Cr Flack was President of the Nambucca Valley Conservation Association during the time Council was Assessing DA 2004/136, East West Road, Valla?

 

Cr Flack answered ‘Yes’.

 

 


ASKING OF QUESTIONS WITH NOTICE  continued

 

QWN13/10 - Cr. Michael Moran - DA 2004/136 East West road Valla (Ref SF970)

Cr Moran enquired if Cr Flack was involved in any way in the formulation of the Nambucca Valley Conservation Association’s submissions against DA 2004/136?

 

Cr Flack answered ‘Yes’.

 

 

QWN14/10 - Cr. Michael Moran - DA 2004/136 East West Road Valla (Ref SF970)

Cr Moran enquired if Cr Flack was the President of the Nambucca Valley Conservation Association at the time Cr Flack voted on the determination of DA 2004/136?

 

Cr Flack answered ‘Yes.  Councillors who were members of the previous Council will recall that the report regarding DA 2004/136 came to Council at its last meeting in 2008 before the election of a new Council, while Council was officially in “caretaker mode” as it is called by the Department of Local Government.

 

The report and recommendations had two components.  Firstly, the recommendation from staff that Council NOT determine the DA whilst it was in Caretaker Mode, based on the advice from the Director General of the Department of Local Government to all councils to avoid making controversial and significant decisions whilst in Caretaker Mode.  Unfortunately, despite this and its own staff’s advice, Council resolved to determine the DA.  I do not consider that I had a conflict of interest in this matter, as it related to whether or not to proceed whilst in Caretaker Mode.

 

The second component of the same report was the DA itself and the recommendation that in the event that Council did resolve to determine the DA, that it be approved.  Having the two recommendations in the same report meant that what I should have done, after recovering from the shock of Council resolving to determine the DA whilst in Caretaker Mode, was to vacate the Chambers for the subsequent determination which was moved immediately afterwards the first decision.

 

The fact that I didn’t was definitely a mistake and one that I recognised afterwards.  Had I declared a conflict of interest and not voted, the outcome would have been the same, that is the DA would still have been approved, likewise, had I not been a member of NVCA at the time and had participated in voting, I would have voted against the DA and the outcome still would have remained the same.

 

Subsequent to this event I made sure that I always declared a conflict of interest on any matters before Council where NVCA was involved or had made a submission, whilst I was still a member.  I have also always declared a conflict of interest for any report relating to the legal case regarding DA 2004/136, despite no longer being a member of the NVCA.  I do this on the basis of the potential for a perceived conflict of interest.  In other words, I have acknowledged my error and have addressed it.’

 

 

QWN15/10 - Cr. Michael Moran - DA 2004/136 East West Road Valla (Ref SF970)

Cr Moran enquired if Cr Flack was subsequently involved in any way in the commencement or the process of legal proceedings by Nambucca Valley Conservation Association challenging consent to DA 2004/136?

 

Cr Flack answered ‘Yes. Following the approval of the DA, the NVCA proceeded to discuss its options with regard to its response to the approval, including legal action.  As President at the time, of course I was involved in this discussion.  I did however recognise the potential conflict of interest and discussed this with the General Manager and at length with the Department of Local Government, I was advised that it would be inappropriate to hold an executive position in the event of the NVCA taking legal action.  I subsequently resigned as president of the NVCA before any legal proceedings commenced against Council.  Shortly afterwards under my own initiative, I also resigned as an ordinary member.’
