BS18/15          Capital Expenditure Status Report

 

Executive Summary

Council maintains on the community’s behalf approximately $2.2B of public infrastructure including roads, footpaths, cycleways, buildings, water, stormwater and sewerage assets, and Council executes a significant Capital Expenditure (Capex) program each year.  The total dollar value of each annual program rises and falls dependent upon the size and scale of the various projects each year.

 

Council has requested, via the Executive Performance Process, that quarterly reports specifying the status of the annual Capex program be provided for its review. Capital Expenditure Status Reports provide an insight into Council’s actual execution of its intended Capex program for the period.  By reviewing the status reports each quarter Council will be able to identify and monitor whether the actual delivery of the Capex program is proceeding according to the expected delivery timeframes and costs as published in each year’s Operational Plan.

 

The report identifies that Council has previous resolutions to commit a total of $82.8M (excluding capital works contributions from developers and capital funding provided for the Rural Fire Service) in capital expenditure. In the current 2017/18 financial year to 28 February 2018 $28.5M has been expended.

 

When the projects which extend over multiple financial years and the projects no longer recommended to proceed at this time are taken into consideration, the capital expenditure target for the current financial year is $46.8M. Therefore the organisation has expended 60.1% of the targeted capital expenditure 66% of the way through the year.

 

This report is the initial report of its type and will now be produced at quarterly intervals for Council’s consideration. Improvements based on feedback will also be incorporated into future reports.

 

2018/72

Resolved (Cr George Cecato / Cr Tegan Swan)

That Council note the report.

The Motion on being put to the meeting was carried unanimously.

Carried

 

 

 

BS18/16          Qantas Training Academy

 

Executive Summary

On 22 February 2018 Qantas announced their intention to establish a pilot training facility near an existing regional airport to be operational by 2019.  The facility, at an estimated establishment cost of $20 million, will initially train 100 pilots per year with the potential to grow to 500 pilots per year.  Qantas has called for expressions of interest from suitable regional airports in Australia.

 

Coffs Harbour is not considered a suitable site for a training facility of the magnitude proposed by Qantas due to its location and future growth potential as a major regional hub for commercial airline operations.  High frequency training flights would also increase the noise footprint over residential areas to the north and south of the airport, particularly during night training.

 

In general terms, high volume General Aviation (GA) and Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) are not considered a compatible mix from an operational perspective.

 

This report is presented to Council for consideration; however, given the issues raised the report is recommended for noting.

 

2018/73

Resolved (Cr John Arkan / Cr George Cecato)

That Council note the report.

The Motion on being put to the meeting was carried unanimously.

Carried

 

 

 

BS18/17          Lease to Girl Guides Toormina

 

Executive Summary

The ground lease to the Girl Guide Association of New South Wales expired 15 December 2017 and a new lease is now being sought.  Under the Local Government Act 1993, a lease may only be issued on land classified as Community Land if it is consistent with the Plan of Management, or if otherwise approved by the Office of Local Government.

Council’s approval to proceed with a new lease is now required.

 

2018/74

Resolved (Cr John Arkan / Cr Tegan Swan)

That Council, as registered proprietor of part Lot 274 in DP 245938 being Lot 2741 in DP 863415 and known as 51 Minorie Drive, Toormina:

1.       Authorise a new ground lease with the Girl Guide Association of New South Wales for a term of 10 years at a rental of $1 per annum, if demanded.

2.       Seek approval from Minister for Local Government as required.

3.       Authorise the General Manager to execute the lease and any associated documents under delegated authority.

4.      Approve inclusion in the lease a condition to allow sub-letting of the building to facilitate access for other community groups offering services in the area.

The Motion on being put to the meeting was carried unanimously.

BS18/18          Federal Regional Growth Fund - Coffs Harbour Airport Enterprise Park Project

 

Executive Summary

On 1 March 2018 the Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, the Hon Dr John McVeigh MP, announced the Federal Government’s $272M Regional Growth Fund open for applications. The fund is for infrastructure and needs to be for ‘common-use’ projects that will deliver significant and sustainable benefits to the region by creating jobs and flow-on benefits to the economy.

 

The minimum grant application is for $10M, so the minimum total project value is $20M. Council’s executive leadership have considered several large infrastructure projects with the Coffs Harbour Airport Enterprise Park (all stages) at $24.5M, being the project that provides the best-fit opportunity for grant funding under this program.  Therefore, this project is recommended for endorsement by Council for the first stage grant application.

 

2018/75

Resolved (Cr Keith Rhoades / Cr John Arkan)

That Council endorse the submission of a first stage grant application to the Federal Regional Growth Fund for the Coffs Harbour Regional Airport Enterprise Park development for a total project cost of up to $24,500,000.

SC18/14          Coffs Harbour Heritage - Items of Potential Local and State Significance

 

Executive Summary

In 2016, Council resolved to further investigate eight properties that were identified as being of Local and of potential State Heritage significance in the Coffs Harbour Community Based Heritage Study (the Heritage Study) 2015. This further detailed heritage analysis has now been completed, and has confirmed that all sites except one show potential for State Heritage significance. Five of the eight items were also identified as not being currently listed in Coffs Harbour Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2013 – Schedule 5 (Environmental Heritage – Local significance).

The objective of this report is to present a Planning Proposal (PP) to Council that seeks to update Schedule 5 (Environmental Heritage) of Coffs Harbour Local Environmental Plan (LEP) 2013 to include the five items of Local Heritage significance (Attachment 1).  Should Council endorse this course of action, it will then be necessary to seek a Gateway Determination from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) to allow Council to place the PP on public exhibition.  It is also recommended that Council considers the outcome of the exhibition in a future Council report. 

This report also provides the results of the detailed heritage analysis of all eight sites in terms of their potential for State significance.  It recommends that seven out of the eight sites be referred to the Heritage Division of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and nominated for consideration on the State Heritage Register (Attachment 2). The eighth site (the former Forestry administration building) is only now considered as being of Local significance (Attachment 3).

 

2018/79

Resolved (Cr Keith Rhoades / Cr George Cecato)

That Council:

1.       Endorse a Planning Proposal (Attachment 1) to amend Coffs Harbour Local Environmental Plan 2013 to update Schedule 5 (Environmental Heritage) by including the First Sikh Temple, Hastings Street, Woolgoolga of heritage significance, and forward it to NSW Planning and Environment seeking a “Gateway Determination”.

2.       Request that the Secretary of NSW Department of Planning and Environment issue a written authorisation to Council to exercise delegation of the plan making functions under Section 3.36 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act in respect of the Planning Proposal.

3.       Subject to the Gateway Determination from NSW Department of Planning and Environment, place the Planning Proposal on public exhibition.

4.       Note that a further report will be brought back to Council for consideration of any submissions following the public exhibition of the Planning Proposal.

5.       Forward the State Heritage Register Nomination Forms (Attachment 2) for the potential State significant heritage items to the Heritage Division of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage for consideration under part 3A of the Heritage Act 1977 for items Coffs Harbour Jetty, Timms Timber Mill, Arrawarra Fish Traps, First Sikh Temple, Hastings Street, Woolgoolga.

6.       Notify landowners and where relevant, their consultant/s, of Council’s decision.

Executive Summary

The purpose of this Report is to provide information to Councillors regarding the status and future intent of the Coffs Creek Remediation Project. This Report and the Coffs Creek Remediation Project are a direct outcome of NOM 17/03 Coffs Creek Remediation in which Council resolved to receive a report which provided an implementation plan for the general remediation of Coffs Creek.

·    the Open Space Upgrades to Saltwater Park;

·    the Upgrade of the Boat Ramp at Edgar Street;

·    the Upper Catchment Remediation Works;

·    the Extension and Upgrade of the Retaining Wall and Walkway adjacent Dolphin Marine Magic; and,

Executive Summary

Council has requested, via the Executive Performance Process that the organisation provide:

 

“Four (4) Spade Ready projects which could be pursued if suitable funding

opportunities become available, such that these projects can be

presented to Council for review.”

 

A report on the matter was provided for Councillor consideration at the Ordinary Meeting of 8th March 2018.

The body of this report provides individual analyses of eight (8) separate projects which includes the strength of their individual alignments with potential funding streams, and their alignment with existing Delivery Program documents.

 

Additionally, available funding sources have been identified for four (4) of the eight projects. Those four projects have been raised to the top of the priority listing on that basis.
