AC factor = $938.00 (charge for 2021/2022).

Where no Council water service is installed on an occupied property (and able to be connected to the sewerage system) a Meter Factor (MF) equal to one (1) and a Sewer Discharge Factor (SDF) equal to 95% will be assumed for the calculation of the annual sewer access charge (i.e. 1 x 95% x $938.00 = $891.10).

SC21/35          Remote Rescue Tubes Project - Trial - Review Report

 

Executive Summary

Coffs Harbour City Council Lifeguard Service, in conjunction with volunteers from Surf Life Saving NSW, manage foreshore and beach activities for the enjoyment and protection of all throughout a number of patrolled beaches in the Coffs Harbour local government area.

However, not all beaches can be patrolled, nor are patrols available at all times of the day, or at all times of the year. Statistics also show that drowning incidents predominantly occur outside patrol times.

As a consequence, the adopted Coffs Harbour City Lifeguard Service Strategic Plan 2019-2024 identified the use of “Remote supervision, unmanned / self-service rescue tubes / equipment” as an opportunity to assist in addressing the risk of drowning incidents.

A successful Remote Rescue Tube Trial has now been conducted and a ’Review Report’ (Attachment 1) has been developed that documents the trial with suggested options to move to a full roll-out across the Coffs Harbour LGA.

 

2021/139

Resolved (Cr Paul Amos / Cr Tegan Swan)

That Council:

1.    Note the outcomes of the ‘Review Report’ (Attachment 1) relating to the Remote Rescue Tube Trial.

2.    Thank the Sawtell Surf Life Saving Club and community for their support through the trial period.

3.    Acknowledge the successful funding received by Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour relating to the roll-out of additional Remote Rescue Tubes.

4.    Endorse the roll-out of the Remote Rescue Tubes program over a maximum three-year period in conjunction with Coffs Coast Regional Park, Surf Life Saving Clubs, Rotary Clubs and others as required.

SI21/10           Duke Street, Coffs Harbour Traffic Changes

 

Executive Summary

Council resolved (resolution No. 2021/721) to receive an assessment of the potential of altering the Duke Street and Harbour Drive intersection in the Coffs Harbour City Centre to allow for a right turn into Duke Street. The rationale of this notice is to relieve congestion on the City Centre local road network, in particular Gordon Street.

Council has reviewed the Duke Street extension project undertaken in 2016 as a basis to determine the feasibility of such an intersection modification. This indicated three concept options are feasible.  It is advised however that such works in isolation are not going to address the primary objective of relieving traffic volumes on Gordon Street.

The Coffs City Centre Masterplan 2031 envisages an ‘inner ring road’ to mitigate city centre congestion. To realise this vision would necessitate works beyond the Duke Street/Harbour Drive intersection.

A 2019 traffic impact assessment accompanying the Cultural and Civic Centre’s State Significant Development (SSD) application found the Gordon Street local road network will be satisfactory for the next 10 years and beyond.

 

2021/140

Resolved (Cr John Arkan / Cr Michael Adendorff)

That Council note the information provided on the options for a right turn into Duke Street from Harbour Drive, Coffs Harbour.

This report is a response to the resolution from the Council meeting of 13 May 2021, “That a report be brought back to Council to proceed further with a Masterplan for Brelsford Park” (Resolution No. 2021/95). It also seeks Council endorsement of the Draft Brelsford Park Precinct Plan and Masterplan (Brelsford Park Masterplan) to be placed on public exhibition. This is an update of the concept contained in the Coffs Harbour City Centre Masterplan 2031 (CC Masterplan) adopted by Council at their meeting on 28 February 2013.

Following public exhibition, the final Brelsford Park Masterplan will be presented to Council for their approval to be incorporated in the CC Masterplan 2031.
