Definitions

 

(Local Government Act and Code of Conduct)

 

 

Pecuniary ? An interest that a person has in a matter because of a reasonable likelihood or expectation of appreciable financial gain or loss to the person or another person with whom the person is associated.

(Local Government Act, 1993 section 442 and 443)

 

A Councillor or other member of a Council Committee who is present at a meeting and has a pecuniary interest in any matter which is being considered must disclose the nature of that interest to the meeting as soon as practicable.

 

The Council or other member must not take part in the consideration or discussion on the matter and must not vote on any question relating to that matter. (Section 451).

 

 

Non-pecuniary ? A private or personal interest the council official has that does not amount to a pecuniary interest as defined in the Act (for example; a friendship, membership of an association, society or trade union or involvement or interest in an activity and may include an interest of a financial nature).

 

If you have declared a non-pecuniary conflict of interest you have a broad range of options for managing the conflict.? The option you choose will depend on an assessment of the circumstances of the matter, the nature of your interest and the significance of the issue being dealt with.? You must deal with a non-pecuniary conflict of interest in at least one of these ways.

 

?        It may be appropriate that no action is taken where the potential for conflict is minimal.? However, council officials should consider providing an explanation of why they consider a conflict does not exist.

?        Limit involvement if practical (for example, participate in discussion but not in decision making or visa-versa).? Care needs to be taken when exercising this option.

?        Remove the source of the conflict (for example, relinquishing or divesting the personal interest that creates the conflict or reallocating the conflicting duties to another officer).

?        Have no involvement by absenting yourself from and not taking part in any debate or voting on the issue as if the provisions in section 451(2) of the Act apply (particularly if you have a significant non-pecuniary conflict of interest).

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Rhonda Hoban, Councillor ????????

 

Summary:

 

Under the current Local Government (Manufactured Home Estates, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds & Moveable Dwellings) Regulation 2005 caravan and manufactured-home park owners are required to advise Council of the positioning of a new dwelling seven (7) days AFTER the actual placement.?

 

Council is aware of the issues this can create if the dwelling is inappropriately positioned eg outside of boundaries or over easements.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council write to the Minister for Local Government requesting that the Local Government (Manufactured Home Estates, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds & Moveable Dwellings) Regulation 2005 be amended to require proposals to locate new dwellings in Caravan Parks to be notified to Council prior to placement.

DISCUSSION:

 

Under the current Local Government (Manufactured Home Estates, Caravan Parks, Camping Grounds & Moveable Dwellings) Regulation 2005 caravan and manufactured-home park owners are required to advise Council of the positioning of a new dwelling seven (7) days AFTER the actual placement.? Council is aware of the issues this can create if the dwelling is inappropriately positioned eg outside of boundaries or over easements.

 

Council is currently dealing with situations where dwellings have been inappropriately positioned in Caravan Parks.? These issues could have been avoided if Council were notified and given the opportunity to comment PRIOR to the placement of the dwellings.

CONSULTATION:

 

Manager Health and Building

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

None identified.

Ordinary Council Meeting

2 September 2010

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.3??? SF1391??????????? 020910???????? Advice of Successful Grant Applications - Nambucca Coastal Hazard Management Plan and? Nambucca River Flood Study Review

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Greg Meyers, Director Environment and Planning ????????

 

Summary:

 

Council has received advice from the Hon Frank Sartor AO, Minister for Climate Change and the Environment that Council has been successful with two of its four applications made under the Coastal, Estuary and Floodplain management funds.

 

The two successful applications are:

 

?????? Nambucca Coastline Management Plan ? Final Stage?????????????? $15,000

?????? Continuation of the Nambucca River Flood Studies/Review???????? $40,000 (max)

 

Both applications are matched $ for $ through the Environmental Levy.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1.?? That Council accept the two funding applications for the final stage of the Nambucca Coastal Hazard Management Plan and the continuation of the Nambucca River Flood Study and Review.

 

2.?? That the Director Environment and Planning use his delegations to complete and return the funding agreements.

 

OPTIONS:

 

Council could choose not to accept either or both of the grants.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The NSW State Government implemented a new process for the calling of funding applications under the Coastal, Estuary and Floodplain management funds to align with Council's budget program.

 

Council submitted 4 applications (Expressions of Interest) being for:

 

?????? Continuation of the Implementation of the Nambucca River Estuary

????????? ?? Management Plan (Riverbank restoration)??????????????????????????????????????????????????? $50,000

?????? Implementation of the Nambucca River Masterplan????????????????????????????? $50,000

?????? Nambucca Coastline Management Plan ? Final Stage????????????????????????????????? $15,000

?????? Continuation of the Nambucca River Flood Studies/Review??????????????????????????? $40,000 (max)

 

Council has received advice from the Hon Frank Sartor AO, Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, that Council has been successful with two of its four applications made under the Coastal, Estuary and Floodplain management funds (see attachments).

 

The two successful applications are:

 

?????? Nambucca Coastline Management Plan ? Final Stage?????????????? $15,000

?????? Continuation of the Nambucca River Flood Studies/Review???????? $40,000 (max)

 

Both applications are matched $ for $ through the Environmental Levy. This further demonstrates justification for the introduction and continuation for the Environmental Levy to source external grant funds that would not normally be available to Council or its community for projects identified through the Levy. These two grants of $55,000 will see benefits for future generations within the shire and place Council in a positive position to apply for further grants for the implementation of recommendations through these Management Plans, thereby reducing the financial impact on its residents and ratepayers.

 

The $30,000 ($15,000 grant & $15,000 Environmental levy) for the Coastal Hazard Management Plan will assist with funding the completion of the Coastal Hazard Management Study and Plan.

 

The $80,000 ($40,000 grant & $40,000 Environmental levy) will assist with the continued review of the Nambucca River Flood Study and assist with the extension of the Flood studies further up the two main arms of the River.

 

There is a recommendation for the appointment of a Consultant to complete the final stages of the Nambucca Coastal Hazard Management Plan in the minutes of the Nambucca River, Creeks, Estuary and Coastline Management Committee Meeting held on Friday, 13 August 2010 which are included in the agenda for this Council meeting. The budget for this consultancy includes the $30,000 from this grant.

 

The continuation of the review and extension of the Flood Studies for the Nambucca River will be assisted by these funds and will see the Flood studies extending up the river and its two main arms hoping that these funds enable the inclusion of Bowraville.

 

A brief will be prepared for presentation to the November 2010 meeting of the Nambucca River, Creeks, Estuary and Coastline Management Committee for endorsement and referral to Council to proceed with Tenders for the Flood Studies and Review.

 

CONSULTATION:

 

DECCW

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

The projects funded under the two grants will consider, identify and include the many environmental impacts and benefits.

 

Social

 

Both projects will need to take account of the impacts and benefits associated with Coastal Hazards and Flooding.

 

Economic

 

Both projects identify economic impacts associated with hazards from coastal processes and flooding. Some of the recommendations may have positive and negative economic impacts for landowners and land managers.

 

Risk

 

The projects funded under the two grants will consider, identify and include the many environmental. social, economic and exposure risks for Council.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

Both grants were identified in draft budget and are in the final adopted 2010/2011 budget.

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

Council's matching funds are specifically identified in the Environmental Levy

DISCUSSION:

 

A number of matters were discussed at the Nambucca River Estuary and Coastline Management Committee meeting held on Friday, 13 August May 2010. Each of the matters was presented through detailed reports.

 

Item 4.1? That the Nambucca River, Creeks and Estuaries and Coastline Management Committee request Council to write to RTA-SKM asking to have predicted flood heights marked on electricity poles to the extent of Council?s flood mapping, extending to include Nursery and Gumma Roads, to indicate Council?s 1:100 year predicted flood height and RTA-SKM predicted 1:100 year flood height with climate change and sea level rise, highway bypass completed as an act of transparency and good faith to the community, before RTA submits proposed highway upgrade to the Planning Department for approval.

 

The Director Environment and Planning confirmed that Council had written to the RTA identifying the locations of markers in the Kings Point area and along River Street Macksville. He also confirmed that the RTA noted the letter and will present Council with a map of the proposed marker locations.

 

This recommendation identifies additional marker locations and following the adoption of the Minutes a further letter is to be sent to the RTA.

 

Item 6.2? That the Committee recommend to Council that SMEC Australia in association with Umwelt Australia be contracted to undertake the preparation of the Nambucca Coastal Zone Management Study and Management Plan being Stages 2 & 3 of the Nambucca Coastal Zone Management Plan in accordance with Council?s Consultants Brief and the submitted tender documents and price from SMEC Australia in association with Umwelt Australia.

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.5??? SF1268??????????? 020910???????? Our Living Coast Update

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Jacqui Ashby, Environmental Compliance Officer ????????

 

Summary:

 

The Our Living Coast Project is a joint initiative of Coffs Harbour City Council, Bellingen Shire Council and Nambucca Shire Council and is being funded through a $1.998m grant from the NSW Environmental Trust, under the Urban Sustainability Program.

 

As part of the conditions of the grant agreement the second milestone report for the Our Living Coast project has been presented to the NSW Environmental Trust on the 31st July 2010. The following is a summary of the detailed report.

 

o?

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council note the progress of the ?Our Living Coast? sustainability initiative, that is being conducted in partnership with Coffs Harbour City Council and Bellingen Shire Council, with funding from the NSW Environmental Trust.

 

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

There are no other options.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

There are several milestones within the project that have been reached, these include:

o? Sustainability Routemap completion

o? Our Living Coast website first pages available

o? Household convenors recruited

o? Sustainability workshops started

o? On ground works identified

o? Our Living Coast Launch Date

 

Sustainability Routemap

The routemap process started with an inception meeting with the consultants and the project team on the 28th April to discuss the scope and development of the document. A workshop was convened for the steering committee and project team on the 10th May and set out the broad parameters and design of the routemap. A presentation to the General Managers of each alliance council followed.

 

A workshop was run in Bellingen on the 11th May for people who, based on their experience, knowledge and position would be useful contributors to the development of the routemap. The workshop provided further input into the design and considered priority sustainability issues for the region.

 

The draft routemap was circulated to those persons attending the workshop and team members for comment and another workshop was held to fine tune the draft on the 16th June in Bellingen.

 

The last and most important workshop was conducted on the 17th June in Urunga with the steering committee, project team, consultants and selected alliance Council Directors and Managers in order to obtain feedback and support. There were 27 people from the 3 Councils that attended this workshop and discussed the routemap, collaboration on sustainability across Councils and finally to develop real possible projects.

 

Finalisation of the routemap was done on the 1st July with the steering committee and the project team. The document was printed and distributed on the 12th August.

 

The routemap will be used as a operational tool for a collaborative approach to regional environmental issues, designed for operational Directors and Managers of Council to work together on joint projects

 

The routemap is a series of 5 questions posed to any collaborative project to ensure its sustainability success. It will help with:

o? Assessing potential projects for collaboration across the Our Living Coast region

o? Establish appropriate governance structures for collaboration

o? Guiding the sharing of resources

o? Supporting the leveraging of external support, and

o? Building increased community participation

 

Our Living Coast Website

The domain name www.ourlivingcoast.com.au has been registered by Coffs Harbour City Council on behalf of the Our Living Coast alliance.

 

The front page has been live since May and has an electronic subscription service which is available for community members to subscribe to the e-newsletter, the first e-news going out on the 30 July. It also shows the 3 alliance Councils? logos which act as links to each Council?s website.

 

The sustainable living guide topics have been chosen and written to include the regions local resources.

 

The site is set to go live 15th September.

 

Household Convenors Recruited

The Our Living Coast household engagement program is to be delivered in 3 ways

o? Offering a structured 8 module course using the CSIRO Energymark program by recruiting convenors to lead participants through the course;

o? Occasional workshop series each month available to members of the community on a range of sustainability topics, and

o? Via the OLC website by providing information of living sustainability, footprint calculators, etc.

 

Sustainability workshops started

The first Sustainability workshop was on energy efficiency for the home which was run on 14th July and included an energy efficiency kit to the value of $50 and the second one on renewable energy for the home on 24th August. There are many more scheduled including, Sustainable House open day 12th September, Solar Hotwater (Sept), Waterwise Homes and Gardens (Oct) and Growing Food for People and Wildlife (Nov).

Director of Engineering Services Report

ITEM 11.2??? SF185????????????? 020910???????? Deed of Agreement for transfer of land for Kingsworth Estate Water Supply reservoir

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Richard Spain, Manager Water and Sewerage ????????

 

Summary:

 

As part of the development approval for the Kingsworth Estate subdivision the developer was required to construct a reservoir to ensure adequate water supply was provided to the new properties.

 

The reservoir deemed to be practically completed and acceptable for handover to Council in October 2004.? The land on which the reservoir is located is yet to be transferred to Council.

 

As a condition of transfer of the developer wants Council to enter into a Deed of Agreement that recognises a credit toward future water supply headworks contributions due to the fact that the reservoir was sized to cater for future potential development of residue land in Kingsworth Estate.

 

The developer has proposed that a credit for future development of 150 Equivalent Tenements (ET) should apply however it is considered that the credit should relate to the actual construction cost of the reservoir and the water supply headworks contributions charge that applied at the time it was constructed.

 

This equates to a credit for an additional 63 lots and the way this has been calculated as detailed below.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1?????????? That Council write to the developer acknowledging that they agree to enter into a Deed of Agreement for the proposed reservoir land transfer that acknowledges water supply headworks contribution credits for the construction of the reservoir on the proviso that the credit is limited to a maximum of 63 additional future lots.

 

2?????????? The Council delegate authority to the Mayor and General Manager to stamp and execute all documents required to finalise the transfer of the reservoir land to Council including an amended Deed of Agreement acknowledging a credit for water supply headworks contributions for 63 additional lots.

 

3?????????? That Council resolve to dedicate the land transferred to Council as operational land for the purposes of water supply.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

Accept the developers proposed Deed of Agreement for transfer of the land.

 

Apply the agreed credit in another form such as a monetary value, however this is not considered to be as equitable as applying it in terms of the ET charge at the time of construction.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Development consent for Stage 2 of the Kingsworth Estate subdivision imposed a requirement to upgrade the water supply infrastructure by constructing a 200 mm dia water supply main along Old Coast Road connected to the Nambucca trunk main as well as a reservoir adjacent to the developed lots.

 

The reservoir was initially proposed to be sized to cater for Stages 2 and 3 of the development which was assessed at 80 ET.? However it became apparent that if a reservoir of this size was built then another reservoir would be required in order to cater for future development of residue land on the estate.

 

Therefore Council and the developer reached an agreement to construct a larger reservoir that would cater for this future development on the proviso that Council acknowledged the additional capacity by way of credits for water supply headworks contributions on future lots.? The reservoir was constructed with a design capacity of 690 kl that would cater for an agreed total of 230 ET.

 

Council deemed that the reservoir had reached the stage of practical and was acceptable for handover in October 2004.? Council has been operating and maintaining the reservoir since this time however the land on which it is constructed is yet to be transferred to Council?s ownership.

 

The developer has recently approached Council to finalise this matter however as a condition of transfer they want Council to acknowledge a water supply headworks contribution credit by means of a Deed of Agreement.? The Deed drafted by the developer proposes recognition of water supply headworks contribution credits for all of the additional 150 ET that the reservoir was designed and constructed to cater for.

 

This proposal does not allow for the fact that water supply headworks contributions can rise significantly over time.? This is particularly relevant for Council given that we are currently working through the pre construction phase of an off river storage project that will have a big impact on these charges should it proceed to construction.

 

It is considered that the most equitable means of recognising the value of the credits that were agreed to apply to the additional storage capacity provided would be to equate the total cost of the reservoir to the headworks contribution per ET that applied at the time it was accepted by Council.

 

The developer?s consulting engineer, de Groot Benson Pty Ltd provided the following details on the construction cost off the reservoir.

 

Construction contract ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? $353,975 including GST

Project Management (including inspection and certification)????????? $???? 7,869 including GST

Telemetry??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? $???? 6,160 including GST

Electricity supply????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? $?? 16,563 including GST

Ancillary works (survey, earthworks, fencing etc.)??????????????????????? $??? 60,000 including GST (approx.)

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? TOTAL??????????? $444,567

 

Say the construction cost for the reservoir was $445,000

 

Water supply headworks contribution charges for the 2004/05 financial year were $3,372/ET

 

Therefore the cost of the reservoir equated to ET?s is $445,000 / $3,372 = 132 ET

 

The developer has 69 lots approved to date therefore the agreed credits that would be applicable would be for 63 lots.? Any future development in excess of an additional 63 lots would be subject to the charges applicable at the time of development.

 

Copies of the developer?s letter to Council and the proposed Deed of Agreement are enclosed for Council?s information

SUSTAINABILITY:

 

Social

 

There is no environmental impact associated with the proposed Deed of Agreement.

 

Environment

 

There is no environmental impact associated with the proposed Deed of Agreement.

 

Economic

 

It is considered that the proposed means of applying a credit for the reservoir construction is the most equitable means of ensuring that the developer makes an appropriate contribution towards any future headworks augmentation requirements.

 

Risk

 

The proposed means of calculating the applicable credit mitigates Council?s risk in undercharging for likely future headworks contributions.

 

 

FINANCIAL:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

There is no impact on currents budgets and the proposed credit calculation is considered to be the most equitable means of ensuring appropriate developer contributions are collected as revenue in future budgets.

 

Source of funds and any variance to working funds

 

No funding is required.

Director of Engineering Services Report

ITEM 11.5??? T026/2010??????? 020910???????? Tender - T026/2010 - Supply of Crusher Run - Ex Bin Maintenance and Emergency Work

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Noel Chapman, Acting Director Engineering Services ????????

 

Summary:

 

This biennial tender for the supply of Crusher Run-Ex Bin Maintenance and Emergency Work has been advertised as a PANEL CONTRACT.

 

Three tenders have been received.? Two tenders are from local suppliers and one from Coffs Harbour.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That the tenders received from Quarry Solutions and Nambucca Valley Gravel be accepted on a Panel of Contractors for T026/2010 for the Supply of Crusher Run ? Ex Bin Maintenance and Emergency Work at the rates (inclusive of GST) listed:

 

Supplier?????????????????????????????????????????? Quarry Solutions?????????? Nambucca Valley Gravel

 

Supply Crusher Run per tonne??????????????? $22.00?????????????????????????????? $23.10

 

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

1??????? Accept the tenders as a panel

2??????? Not accept the tenders

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Traditionally this contract has been exclusively offered to one contractor.? This has resulted in unacceptably high transport costs to areas of the Shire remote from the selected quarry.? The approximate value of the contract in 2009/2010 was $460,000.

 

The adoption of a ?PANEL? allows the selection of the quarry closest to the worksite and hence minimising the transport costs.? In order to give staff some guidance the adoption of two zones is proposed as shown on the Circularised plan.

 

Transport costs are variable depending on traffic, job location and road condition.

 

Based on an average driving speed of 50kph the additional transport cost would be in the order of $200.00 for a trip of 50 km each way ie $2.00/km for the round trip.

 

This equates to:

 

$20.00 per tonne for a truck with a 10 tonne payload; or

$10.00 per tonne for a truck and trailer.

 

 

CONSULTATION:
