BS20/44          Contributions Plan Review - Park Beach Area - Post Exhibition

 

Executive Summary

At its meeting held on 23 April 2020, Council resolved to place the revised Park Beach Area Contributions Plan on public exhibition.  The plan has been on public exhibition for a period of 28 days with seven submissions received during this period.

This contributions plan seeks a financial contribution towards the development and level of infrastructure that is required to support the needs of this growing area.  The existing Park Beach Area Contributions Plan has been reviewed and necessary amendments to the plan were proposed.  After considering the submissions lodged, further changes to the draft contributions plan are proposed within this report, which include:

-     Extending the designated catchment area to the west and north of Hogbin Drive;

-     Increasing the projected lot yield, in conjunction with key infrastructure facilities;

-     Reducing the term of the contributions plan to 10 years; and

-     Applying apportionment toward the wider Local Government Area (LGA) community.

The above amendments have reduced the proposed contribution rates (for Traffic Facilities and Open Space).  Due to these amendments, an additional public exhibition period is recommended.

2020/155

Resolved (Cr George Cecato / Cr Tegan Swan)

That Council:

1.           Endorse the amended draft Park Beach Area Contributions Plan 2020 (Attachment 1) for public exhibition for an additional period of 42 days seeking submissions.

2.           Note that a further report will be brought back to Council for consideration following the additional public exhibition period.

3.           Inform the parties who made submissions (Attachment 2) of the outcome thus far.

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

Regional Procurement Initiative recently conducted a tender for the same products with the aim of establishing a new supply contract for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2023 with a further one-year extension option.

-        IXOM Operations Pty Ltd

-        Omega Chemicals

SC20/40          Community Participation and Engagement Plan - Housekeeping

 

Executive Summary

The Community Participation and Engagement Plan (CPEP) was adopted by Council on 12 December 2019. It sets out Council’s approach for facilitating community participation and engagement, and ensures communities have a say and participate in decisions that affect their future.

Changes have been made to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000 to replace the requirement to publish planning notices in a local newspaper with online publication.

A commitment in the CPEP states that a public notice will be published in the local newspaper. With the printed version of the local newspaper no longer being produced, this can no longer be fulfilled. Subsequently, the CPEP has been updated, with proposed changes to advertising online and legislative housekeeping amendments.

The purpose of this report is to seek endorsement from Council to amend the CPEP due to changing circumstances and legislation in 2020.

2020/163

Resolved (Cr Tegan Swan / Cr Sally Townley)
