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).

Notice of Motion

ITEM 5.1????? SF1471??????????? 050810???????? Notice of Motion - Minutes of MANEX and the Occupational Health and Safety Committee

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Michael Moran OAM, Councillor ????????

 

Summary:

 

Council has two internal meeting/committees that consider issues that relate to Council budget allocations.? MANEX is a meeting where senior management discuss current issues and the Occupational Health and Safety Committee deal with issues relating to the occupational health and safety of Council staff.

 

If senior management have ?issues? it is important that Councillors know what they are so that they can be considered in Council decisions such as budget allocations and organisational reviews.? The same applies to the Occupational Health and Safety Committee as Occupational Health and Safety concerns should be considered in Council decisions such as staff training budget allocations, plant purchases and general budget allocations.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council receives the minutes of MANEX and the Occupational Health and Safety Committee meetings.

 

 

 

Comment by General Manager

 

Council is faced with great challenges.?? We are currently considering a $221m Integrated Water Cycle Management Strategy; whether to build a $54m off stream water supply or an on stream alterative; and if not how we will survive an extended drought.?? We also need to resolve how we will fund our ageing infrastructure when even after an unprecedented capital injection our asset renewal ratio is still only estimated to be 0.60.?? At the core of this issue is Council?s financial sustainability.

 

Within the next 2 years we have to complete a new Community Strategic Plan covering at least a 10 year period and demonstrate how that is to be funded by means of a long term financial plan, workforce management plan and asset management plan.? If Council decides to seek a special rate variation to fund its 4 year delivery program then all of these plans will be subject to scrutiny by not only our residents but also IPART.? And there are also the no less important but perennial issues such as managing rural land use conflicts; implementing Council?s new LEP; maintaining the quality of our natural systems and especially our river; and importantly building our economic & social sustainability with a more robust economy, new jobs and lower unemployment.

 

The answers to these great challenges are not going to be found in the minutes of MANEX or the OH&S Committee or the other staff committees such as the Consultative Committee or the Committee of Standards which deal with the day to day operations of a Council.? Typically the matters discussed at MANEX and the OH&S Committee are operational and include staff re-gradings, computer software requirements and internal procedures.? On occasion there are policy or budget matters arising out of these internal committees which are duly reported to Council.? Council?s purchase of the recently installed Authority (rating, property, ledger, payroll) software is one example.

?

The staff seek leadership on the great challenges.

Ordinary Council Meeting

5 August 2010

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.2????? SF1103??????????? 050810???????? Proposed Acquisition of Part of Lot 238 DP 755549 for the Proposed Nambucca District Water Supply Off River Water Storage

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Michael Coulter, General Manager ????????

 

Summary:

 

The site for the proposed off stream water storage is secured except for a relatively small area of approximately 6.5 hectares at the rear of 314 Bellingen Road, Bowraville (Lot 238 DP 755549).?? The land has a total area of 49.17 hectares and contains a dwelling and other improvements.?? The land to be acquired is a steeply sloping timbered ridge falling towards a gently sloping partially cleared area.

 

An offer was put to the owners based on the average of two independent valuations.?? The owners have now made a counter offer of $4,500 per hectare which is considered reasonable and is recommended for acceptance.?? Based on an area of 6.5 hectares, but subject to final survey, the compensation payable will be $29,250.?

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1??????? That Council acquire approximately 6.5 hectares of land at the rear of 314 Bellingen Road, Bowraville (Lot 238 DP 755549) at a price of $4,500 per hectare with the final compensation to be determined by survey.

 

2??????? That all survey and legal costs relating to the creation of the lot and the transfer of title be met by Council.

 

3??????? That the transfer of the land be subject to the issue of a subdivision certificate.

 

4??????? That Council?s seal be attached to all relevant documents.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

If Council is to even consider the construction of an off stream water storage it is important to own or otherwise secure the ownership of the land to be inundated.? This has been achieved for the whole dam except for the subject 6.5 hectares.? Whilst Council can elect not to acquire the land, given what has already been spent on property acquisition, planning and investigation, this is not a rational option.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The site for the proposed off stream water storage is secured except for a relatively small area of approximately 6.5 hectares at the rear of 314 Bellingen Road, Bowraville (Lot 238 DP 755549).? The land has a total area of 49.17 hectares and contains a dwelling and other improvements.? The land to be acquired is a steeply sloping timbered ridge falling towards a gently sloping partially cleared area.

 

In 1999 the then Council resolved that the Mayor and General Manager be authorised to negotiate the purchase of affected properties and report to Council for a decision.

 

Contact was made with the owners of the property and two independent valuers were engaged to separately value the land.? The two valuation reports prepared by Coffs Coast Valuations and secondly by the North Coast Valuation Service are confidential circularised documents.

 

An offer was then put to the owners based on the average of the two valuations.? The owners have now made a counter offer of $4,500 per hectare which is considered reasonable and is recommended for acceptance.? Based on an area of 6.5 hectares, but subject to final survey, the compensation payable will be $29,250.?

 

 

CONSULTATION:

 

There has been consultation with the Manager Water and Sewerage, the property owners and the valuers.? There has also been consultation with the Project Manager.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

There are no significant environmental implications.

 

Social

 

There are no social implications.

 

Economic

 

There are no economic implications.

 

Risk

 

There are no known risks.? However there are significant risks in not acquiring the land or rejecting the offer.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

There is provision in the budget for the off stream water storage for the acquisition of the land.

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

There is no impact on working funds.

General Manager's Report

ITEM 9.3????? SF338????????????? 050810???????? Relocation of Radio 2NVR to Tewinga Community Centre - Change to Committee of Management Constitution

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Michael Coulter, General Manager ????????

 

Summary:

 

Radio Nambucca Inc. has now developed detailed plans for its relocation to the Tewinga Community Centre.? It will be noted that sufficient funding is available for Phase One of the relocation which will see the station broadcasting from Tewinga by the end of 2010.? Radio Nambucca proposes to relocate its operations to the Tewinga Community Centre once Council has agreed to the proposed plans for relocation and the necessary changes to the centre?s constitution have been made.? The report recommends the endorsement of the proposed alterations and a change to the centre?s constitution.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1??????? That Council endorse the proposed alterations to the building and that the fees for a development application and construction certificate application be met from Council?s donations budget.

 

2??????? That Council endorse the change to the Guide to Operations & Delegations of Authority ? Section 355 Committees being a new requirement for the Tewinga Community Centre that the use of the building must include the operations of Nambucca Valley Radio 2NVR.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

There have been many discussions concerning the relocation of Nambucca Valley Radio 2NVR.? Whilst Council can determine not to endorse the proposed building alterations of the application of funding to their relocation this would be contrary to previous decisions.? Council could require the payment of the DA fee and Construction Certificate application fee.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Radio Nambucca Inc. has now developed detailed plans for its relocation to the Tewinga Community Centre.? These plans are circularised.

 

It will be noted that sufficient funding is available for Phase One of the relocation which will see the station broadcasting from Tewinga by the end of 2010.? Radio Nambucca proposes to relocate its operations to the Tewinga Community Centre once Council has agreed to the proposed plans for relocation and the necessary changes to the centre?s constitution have been made.

 

I met with Juliet Tilson and Ron Hawkins of Radio Nambucca on 16 July to discuss the expenditure and acquittal of the $20,000 provided for the relocation in Council?s 2010/2011 budget.? It was agreed that the $20,000 be provided to Radio Nambucca in two $10,000 payments.? The first would be at the commencement of the project in August and the second in October.? Radio Nambucca will provide Council with monthly progress reports and receipts for expenditure.

 

Proposed Plans for Relocation

 

A proposed new internal layout for the Tewinga Community Centre is in the circularised documents.? The overall size of the existing hall will be reduced by the inclusion of two broadcast studios, but importantly there is still a reasonable meeting space which can be made available for use by the local community.? The internal partitioning is not structural but because of the building?s classification a development application and construction certificate application will have to be lodged for the proposed work.

 

It is recommended that Council endorse the proposed alterations to the building and that the fees for a development application and construction certificate application be met from Council?s donations budget.

 

Change to Constitution

 

To provide Nambucca Valley Radio 2NVR with security of tenure at the Tewinga Community Centre, it is recommended that the following addition (no. 10) be made to the delegations of authority to the Committee of Management.

 

Tewinga Community Centre

 

1??????? Maintain, improve and protect grounds, buildings and fittings;

2??????? Undertake and regulate the casual hiring of premises and grounds, excluding camping;

3??????? Conduct of fund raising activities.? Where such fund raising activities involve the sale of alcohol, a ? liquor license and the approval of Council is required;

4??????? Limit the expenditure of monies to the amount of funds held by the Committee at the time;

5??????? Seek grants for the maintenance and upgrading of the building or its fittings, subject to the General ???????? Manager?s endorsement of the grant application;

6??????? Appoint such contractors as are deemed necessary by the Committee from time to time to assist in ?????? the administration and maintenance of the buildings and/or the conduct of programmes or functions ???? therein, subject to contracts which are of necessity for a long term being reviewed once per year;

7??????? Make recommendations to the Council for any enhancement, expansion or upgrade of the facility ? the Committee considers appropriate;

8??????? Make such other recommendations to the Council in respect of the facility as the Committee thinks ??????? appropriate from time to time;

9??????? Project manage capital works where a specific written authority for the particular works has been ?? provided by Council.

10????? The use of the building must include the operations of Nambucca Valley Radio 2NVR.

 

 

CONSULTATION:

 

There has been consultation with Nambucca Valley Radio 2NVR and Mr Frank Stennett, the President of the Committee of Management.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

There are no implications for the environment.

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.2??? SF276????????????? 050810???????? Report on the Minutes of the ACAC Committee Meeting held 8 June 2010

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Patricia Walker, Aboriginal Community Development Officer; Greg Meyers, Director Environment and Planning ????????

 

Summary:

 

The minutes of the Aboriginal Community Advisory Committee meeting held Tuesday 8 June 2010, are presented for Council?s endorsement and hold eight (8) recommendations for Council?s consideration.

 

ITEM 5.2????? Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AHIMS)

 

1??????? That the Engineering and Planning departments continue to consult with Elders and the appropriate Lands Council.

 

2??????? That 6.4 and 6.6 of the Licence Agreement be constantly monitored by the Manager of Planning and Assessment and the Engineering Designer.

6??????? That Council acknowledge the information system is not a definitive list of culture and heritage sites within the Nambucca Shire.

 

Directors Note:

 

A response for each of the above recommendations are provided in the Discussion Section of this report as there needs to be some clarification in regard to Licence Agreement between Council and the Department of environment Climate Change and Water.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council note the Minutes from the Nambucca Shire Aboriginal Community Advisory Committee held on 8 June 2010.

 

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

1????????? Endorse the minutes.

2????????? Not endorse the minutes.

3????????? Endorse the minutes with amendments.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

5.2 ????? Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AHIMS)

 

Members were surprised that Council had obtained the management system and enquired to how the management system was obtained.

 

Ms Walker informed members that the management system was obtained through evidence of continued correspondence to the organisations listed in Annex D of the Licence Agreement. Members were informed of the organisations which endorsed the management system, that being solely Bowraville Local Aboriginal Lands Council, and subjected to a condition that;

 

'Bowraville Local Aboriginal Lands Council be informed on each and every occasion that any such information is released to or requested by third parties.'

 

Directors Comment:

 

Council sought approval to use the data and information contained within the NSW Government Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System (AIHMS) for internal purposes to assist with the processing and assessment of applications for development consent or activities undertaken by Council such as road works, drainage works etc.

 

The process required of Council by the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW), was extensive with Council writing to 8 Local Aboriginal Lands Council's as identified by DECCW.

 

Council's initial letter was sent on 23 June 2009 with only the Bowraville LALC responding. Subsequent letters were sent on 23 July and 26 August 2009 to the remaining 7 LALC with no response.

 

Notwithstanding the lack of reply, Council subsequently sought the Licence Agreement. DECCW issued a 2 year Agreement which expires on 29 April 2012. The Licence Agreement comes with very specific conditions and use which are outlined below:.

 

LICENCE AGREEMENT

 

5.? CONDITIONS OF USE

 

5.1.???????? The Licensee shall only copy, hold and use the Aboriginal Heritage Information in the manner specified in Annexure B.

 

5.2.???????? The Licensee shall not further copy or hold the Aboriginal Heritage Information (including copies or translations into any medium or format) in whole or in part unless authorised by the Licensor in writing.

 

5.3.???????? On expiration or termination of this Licence Agreement, the Licensee shall erase all copies of the Aboriginal Heritage Information in its possession including any derived data (unless otherwise authorised in Annexure B). The Licensor at its discretion may direct the Licensee to confirm in writing that the information as provided under the terms of this Licence Agreement has been destroyed.

 

5.4.???????? The Aboriginal Heritage Information provided under this Licence Agreement shall only be used by the employees or contractors as identified in Annexure B, section 2. Any requests for this information by third parties should be referred to the Licensor?s Contact Person.

 

5.5.???????? Adequate security measures and systems must be installed and enforced by the Licensee to safeguard the Aboriginal Heritage Information provided by the Licensor from unauthorised amendment, access or use, including access or use by third parties.

 

5.6.???????? Any hard copy maps/reports derived from the Aboriginal Heritage Information shall include an acknowledgment to the Licensor, the number of this Licence Agreement and the date on which the Aboriginal Heritage Information was provided.

 

5.7.???????? The Aboriginal Heritage Information provided under this Licence Agreement must not be made publicly available or be published by the Licensee in any form or by any means; unless otherwise authorised in Annexure B prior to signing of this Licence Agreement,? or after signing of this Licence Agreement where approval has been sought from the AHIMS Registrar and provided in writing to the Licensee.

ANNEXURE B

Use of Aboriginal Heritage Information

1.?????? For what type of activities can this Aboriginal Heritage Information only be used (list):

? Development Assessment ? the information will be used as a planning tool to avoid and/or mitigate potential impacts on Aboriginal Cultural Heritage sites.

? It should be noted that no third party searches will be conducted by Council on behalf of applicants as part of the development assessment process.

? Any requests from applicants or any other person not authorised to access information held by Council will be advised to lodge their application or request for Aboriginal Heritage information for processing via the DECCW website.

? Strategic Planning ? the information will be used as a planning tool to inform and/or limit, where appropriate, future urban development.

2.?????? What people (or groups of people) can access this information:

? Council?s Town Planners.

? Council?s Engineers.

? Any other authorised Council officer (eg GIS officer)

3.?????? In what specific manner would this information be stored and protected:

? GIS ? only available to authorised officers in Council.

4.?????? How will this Aboriginal Heritage Information be erased upon completion of the current DLA.

? Deleted from GIS.

5.? How will this Aboriginal Heritage Information be published, or otherwise reproduced in any map or visual format.

 

? The new information will not be made publicly available and no hard copies will be allowed unless the heritage information/sites are already available to the general public.

Response to each of the 6 Recommendations contained in the Minutes for Item 5.2:

 

1.?????? Council staff will continue to consult the relevant LALC's in regard to Development Applications, Environmental Studies and Statements of Environmental Factors for Council activities. Council has not consulted with Aboriginal Elders as Council is not aware of who the Elders are within the Aboriginal community thereby relying upon the LALC's to discuss with the Elders.

 

2.?????? Items 6.4 & 6.6 are legal obligations under the Licence Agreement.

 

3.?????? One of the main reasons in obtaining the Licence Agreement is to enable staff to be aware of Aboriginal Cultural Heritage items and locations so it may consider the impacts of all types of development and activities.

 

4 & 5. Council will write to each of the 8 LALC's identified in Annexure D advising them of Council's Licence Agreement and outline the Terms and Conditions of its use.

 

6.?????? Council is aware that the AHIMS data base is not a definitive list of Cultural and Heritage sites within Nambucca Shire, and that the consultation with the local LALC's is an important step to ensure that all sites are taken into account when assessing applications for consent.

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.4??? SF617????????????? 050810???????? Report on National Park Amendment (Visitors) Bill

 

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

 

Summary:

 

The Three Valleys Branch of the National Parks Association of NSW have written to Council enquiring if Council has considered any potential impact the Bill may have on local tourist facilities located outside the National Parks and the effect the Bill may have on Council's ability to control Development as the development may be outside Council's control.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council note the letter from the Three Valleys Branch of the National Parks Association of NSW but take no action in making representations opposing the National Park Amendment (Visitors) Bill.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

Council could choose to adopt the recommendation; or make representations to the NSW State Government objecting to the proposed amending legislation; or refer the matter to the local Tourist Association to make comment representations.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

The local Three Valleys Branch of the National Parks Association of NSW have written to Council (see attached) in regard to the National Park Amendment (Visitors) Bill which has been introduced into Parliament by the NSW State Government.

 

The local branch have referred to a resolution passed at the 2009 Local Government Association Conference in Tamworth which they advise was to express its concern that the NSW State Government plans to expand commercial tourism development inside National Parks through the Amendment Bill, as well as the proposal to allow recreational hunting in National Parks.

 

It is noted that should the Bill be passed, Council would have no development control over the types and standards of development and unlikely to recoup any developer contributions that would ordinarily be applicable.

 

There is no doubt that low key accommodation would benefit the use and patronage of National Parks throughout NSW, however, as suggested by the National Parks Association, such development may impact upon existing commercial tourist accommodation houses and facilities.

 

In regard to development standards, the NSW Government do have standards that they would adhere to in regard to the types of structures they would erect and similar to the provisions under the Infrastructure SEPP consent from Council would not be required which would not allow Council to apply developer contributions for roads (if applicable) and other community services etc. Water and Sewer contributions and charges would apply (if within a reticulated water/sewerage area).

 

It is suggested that Council note the letter from the Three Valleys Branch of the National Parks Association of NSW but take no action in making representations opposing the National Park Amendment (Visitors) Bill.

 


CONSULTATION:

 

General Manager

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

The NSW Government ? National Parks Service are the peak authority in regard to environmental impact who would have carefully considered the impacts of the draft Bill before being presented.

 

Social

 

The provision of visitor accommodation in National Parks would provide some positive social impacts.

 

Economic

 

There may be some negative economic impact on local tourist accommodation houses which may be offset by increased visitor numbers and expenditure in the local area.

 

Risk

 

There is minimal risk for Council with the draft Bill.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

No budget impacts

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

No funds required

Ordinary Council Meeting

5 August 2010

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.6??? DA2009/119????? 050810???????? Modification Application (DA 2009/119/01)

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Arthur Tsembis, Manager Planning and Assessment ????????

 

Summary:

 

DA 2009/119 was granted approval under delegated authority on 12 June 2009. Condition 6 of the consent requires the upgrade of Smiths Lane, which is a Crown Road, to a public road standard. Condition 3 requires the landowner/developer to initiate the transfer of Smiths Lane to Council.

 

Council at its meeting on 3 September 2009 considered a report to vary the terms and conditions of the development consent approvals for DA 2009/113 and DA 2009/119. Council considered a further report dealing with the legal advice relating to these two applications at its meeting on 18 February 2010.

 

The purpose of this report is to make a determination of the modification application to amend the conditions of consent relating to DA 2009/119.

 

NOTE: This matter requires a ?Planning Decision? referred to in Section 375A of the Local Government Act 1993 requiring the General Manager to record the names of each Councillor supporting and opposing the decision.

 

 

 

Recommendation:

 

1????????? That Council defer determination of the modification application for DA 2009/119 until the Draft Section 94 Developer Contributions Plan for Smiths Lane has been adopted by Council.

 

2????????? Once the Draft Section 94 Developer Contributions Plan for Smiths Lane is adopted by Council, DA 2009/119 be modified as outlined in this report.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

Council has various options including the previous similar options put to Council, which were:

 

1????????? Retain the status quo and require the applicant to dedicate and upgrade Smiths Lane in accordance with conditions 3 & 6.

 

2????????? Amend the consent for DA 2009/119 to require dedication and upgrade of Smiths Lane before development occurs in accordance with a Section 94 Contributions Plan that requires Council to complete the upgrade of Smiths Lane and then recover the cost from subdivision approvals for the land along Smiths Lane.

 

3????????? Amend the consent for DA 2009/119 to require the dedication and upgrade of Smiths Lane before development occurs in accordance with a Section 94 Contributions Plan that requires Council to collect funds towards upgrading Smiths Lane from subdivision approvals for land along Smiths Lane and then complete the upgrade of Smiths Lane..

 

As previously advised options 2 & 3 are in accordance with Council?s legal advice. However, if the draft S94 plan is adopted, Council will be able to collect contributions and undertake partial upgrades of Smiths Lane in stages, as funds become available. In addition to the above Council also has the following option:

 

4????????? In accordance with the request for Smiths Lane not to be upgraded by the applicant, Council amend the consent for DA 2009/119 to delete conditions 3 and 6 relating to ?Transfer of Smiths Lane? and ?Full Width Road Construction?.

 

 

BACKGROUND:

 

DA 2009/119 was granted approval under delegated authority on 12 June 2009. Condition 6 of the consent requires the upgrade of Smiths Lane, which is a Crown Road, to a public road standard. Condition 3 requires the landowner/developer to initiate the transfer of Smiths Lane to Council.

 

Access to the subject site is off Smiths Lane which is an unsealed Crown Road. Item (d) of Schedule 1 relating to Clause 16 of LEP 1995 requires land to be subdivided to be linked by a bitumen sealed road. However, there are ?exception provisions?, which this application satisfies. Notwithstanding, Clause 6.1.2 of DCP 4 ? Subdivision, requires the upgrade and dedication of a Crown Road to Council as a public road. The DCP requires the upgrade and costs associated with the dedication of the road to be met by the applicant.

 

Having regard to the above, the requirement to bitumen seal Smiths Lane in accordance with condition 6 was incorrect. This was acknowledged in the report considered by Council at its meeting on 3 September 2009. However, this did not obviate the requirement for the applicant to upgrade Smiths Lane to an unsealed public road standard before it is dedicated to Council. The applicant was advised by letter dated 7 September 2009 that the conditions relating to the upgrading and dedication of Smiths Lane will be amended to remove the requirement for bitumen sealing. The amendment can be implemented as part of this modification application.

 

Following representations from Mr and Mrs Turnbull (DA 2009/113) the DEP prepared a report for Council?s consideration at its meeting on 6 August 2009. Council resolved to defer the matter to ?enable a site inspection at the next General Purpose Committee meeting?.

 

A further report was considered by Council at its meeting on 3 September 2009. Council resolved to adopt the following recommendation:

 

1????????? That Council advise both of the applicants for DA 2009/113 and DA 2009/119 that Council is prepared to consider a reduced standard of upgrading of Smith's Lane to a single lane standard and that they should each submit a Section 96 Modification application.

 

2????????? That Council advise the two applicants that should they not be prepared to share the full costs of upgrading Smiths Lane to a reduced standard and propose to submit a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPR) or other form of contribution, that they seek their own legal advice as to whether they can submit a VPA with a Section 96 Modification application.

 

3????????? In the event that Council proceeds with recommendations 1 and 2 above Council seek its own legal advice in regard to accepting a Voluntary Planning Agreement with a Section 96 Modification application, or if a VPA is not submitted whether Council would have to advertise any financial benefit to a local developer if only partial contribution towards the upgrade of Smiths Lane is proposed.

 

In accordance with items 1 and 2 above, the owners of the property relating to DA 2009/113 (Turnbull) lodged a modification application to delete conditions 3 and 6 and replace them with a requirement to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA).

 

Mr Trent Wink on behalf of the applicant for DA 2009/119, advised Council by letter dated 7 October 2009 that ?Mr &Mrs Smith are willing to prepare a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA)?. Mr Wink requested that Council confirm it is willing to consider a proposed VPA before a formal S96 application is lodged. However, in the absence of any legal advice Council could not confirm that it was willing to consider a VPA.

 

In accordance with Council?s resolution (item 3), Council staff sought legal advice from Deacons (now known as Norton Rose). The details of the legal advice were reported to Council on 18 February 2010. Council resolved to adopt the following recommendation:

 

1????????? That Council staff continue to process the Section 96 Modification Application for DA 2009/113 in accordance with the relevant provisions of the EP&A Act and consideration be given to amending the consent to give effect to a requirement for ?satisfactory arrangements to be in place to upgrade Smiths Lane in accordance with the provisions of NLEP 1995? and ?payment of a Section 94 contribution in accordance with a future Section 94 Contributions Plan?.

2????????? That Mr & Mrs Smith be advised that upon submission of a Section 96 Modification Application to amend the development consent approval for DA 2009/119, similar consideration will be given to the application in accordance with 1 above.

3????????? That Council undertake to prepare a Section 94 Contributions Plan to upgrade Smiths Lane in accordance with Council?s requirements.

4????????? That the Section 94 Contributions Plan be prepared to allow Smiths Lane to be constructed in stages and stage 1 shall incorporate expending any contributions received from the amended Turnbull and/or Smith subdivision approvals to the partial upgrade of Smiths Lane.

 

Mr Smith was advised in terms of item 2 above by letter dated 24 February 2010. A S96 application to modify the development consent was subsequently lodged by Mr Smith on 19 April 2010. The application included a report prepared by Mr Wink, dated 12 April 2010, a copy of which is attached for Council?s information.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

In accordance with Council?s normal practice the modification application was advertised, and adjoining and nearby neighbours notified. As a result of such action no further submissions were received. However, Council is advised that the original application attracted two (2) submissions, neither of which objected subject to a requirement to upgrade and bitumen seal Smiths Lane.

 

Council?s attention is drawn to the similar modification application for DA 2009/113, considered by Council at its meeting on 1 July 2010, where Council was advised:

 

????????? It should be noted that any decision made by Council regarding this modification application is ????? likely to apply to a similar modification application for DA 2009/119, which has been submitted but ??????? not yet determined.

 

The report prepared by Mr Wink on behalf of the applicant states that the S96 Application seeks approval to amend Development Application DA 2009/119 as follows:

 

?????????????? Amend Condition No 1 to construct the approved rural residential subdivision in 3 stages.

 

There is no reason why the subdivision cannot be undertaken in stages as suggested. However, an amended condition will require the submission of a new subdivision certificate for each stage, and a requirement for any S94 contributions to be paid before the subdivision certificate is released.

 

?????????????? Delete Condition No 3 which requires the dedication of the Crown road.

 

The report acknowledges that Council?s DCP contains a requirement that Crown roads need to be upgraded and dedicated to Council as a public road. However, Mr Wink on behalf of the applicant states that his client should not be made to upgrade Smiths Lane ?because this requirement has not been consistently applied by Council and there are a number of examples where subdivisions have been approved and the Crown road has not been upgraded or dedicated to Council.

 

In support of his argument Mr Wink cites a previous approval relating to the adjoining property owned by Mr Turnbull where he created one additional rural-residential lot with access off Smiths Lane. There is no dispute that Council relaxed the DCP requirements in relation to the adjoining single Lot subdivision. However, it is not considered good planning practice or appropriate to perpetuate any previous inconsistencies.

 

?????????????? Amend Condition No 6 to delete the requirement to construct Smiths Lane.

 

The report states that the requirement to construct Smiths Lane is inconsistent with LEP 1995 and DCP 4. Part of Condition 6 of the consent requires Smiths Lane to be bitumen sealed, which is incorrect in so far as it applied to Mr Smith?s application (DA 2009/119). This was acknowledged by letter dated 7 September 2009. As stated above, this did not obviate the requirement to upgrade Smiths Lane to an unsealed public road standard before it is dedicated to Council. Nor does it exclude the applicant from constructing the internal road to Council?s public road standard. However, Council agreed to allow Mr Turnbull to construct a lesser standard road for the extension of Smiths Lane, comprising 3.5m (minimum) wide bitumen seal with a minimum 5.5m wide formation within a minimum 20m wide road reserve. It is considered that this same standard of construction for the extension of Smiths Lane should also apply to this modification application.

 

Mr Wink has strenuously argued on behalf of Mr Smith that he should not be required to upgrade Smiths Lane. However, on 7 October 2009 Mr Wink on behalf of Mr and Mrs Smith wrote to Council and offered to enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) to contribute $30,250 towards the future upgrade of Smiths Lane.

 

A similar proposal by Mr Turnbull relating to DA 2009/113 was rejected and Council at its meeting on the 1 July 2009 resolved:

 

????????? That upon receipt of an amended VPA offering to pay $60,000 towards the upgrade of Smiths Lane, Council amend consent DA 2009/113 by deleting conditions 3 and 21 relating to the dedication of Smiths Lane and the payment of Section 94 Contributions and amend conditions 6 and 15 as outlined below.

 

Council also resolved to ?prepare a Section 94 Contributions Plan for the upgrade of Smiths Lane, noting that the maximum amount of the contribution will be capped at $20,000 per lot.? The S94 plan has been prepared and Council at its meeting on 15 July 2010 resolved to endorse the exhibition of the draft plan for a period of 28 days. The draft plan is currently on exhibition.

 

Mr Turnbull has subsequently offered to amend the proposal and enter into a VPA to pay a cash contribution of $20,000 per lot in lieu of upgrading Smiths Lane. The amended VPA is currently on exhibition

 

Having regard to the above it is suggested that Mr and Mrs Smith?s offer to enter in a VPA in the amount of $30,250 should also be rejected.

 

Notwithstanding, Mr Wink via e-mail dated 5 July 2010 continued to request Council to delete the requirement to upgrade Smiths Lane. However, he also advised that Mr Smith is prepared to pay a S94 contribution because he does not want to enter into a VPA. Mr Smith has effectively withdrawn his offer to enter into a VPA. As such, the only equitable course of action is for Mr Smith to pay a contribution if and when the draft S94 plan is adopted by Council. After several e-mails between Mr Wink, the General Manager and the Manager Planning and Assessment, Mr Wink provided advice by e-mail dated 13 July 2010 that Condition 20 should be amended ?to require a total contribution of $20,000 per allotment.?

 

The suggested amendment by Mr Wink is consistent with Council?s consideration of Mr Turnbull?s application (DA 2009/113) at its meeting on 1 July 2010. The only difference is that Mr Turnbull will pay a contribution under a VPA, whereas Mr Smith has agreed to pay a contribution under a Council adopted S94 Contributions Plan. However, if the S94 plan is not subsequently adopted for whatever reason, Council may need to reassess the matter. As such, it is considered that final determination of the modification application for DA 2009/119 should be deferred pending the adoption of the S94 Contributions Plan for Smiths Lane.


 

CONCLUSION:

 

As previously advised when dealing with the modification application for DA 2009/113, Council has various options available in its determination of the modification application. The recommendation is a variation of the recommendation provided by Council?s solicitors. However, it is considered that the recommendation is the most fair and equitable arrangement to overcome the cost burden of requiring only a couple of individuals and/or Council having to pay for the full cost to upgrade Smiths Lane.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

Any approval of the proposed modification application is not likely to have significant environmental impacts, other that allowing a sub-standard road to remain until Council has sufficient funds to upgrade Smiths Lane to a public road standard.

 

Social

 

In accordance with previous advice, the main concern is in relation to the standard of Smiths Lane. Two separate landowners put in submissions to the original subdivision applications raising concerns with dust and on-going maintenance issues. There is an expectation that Smiths Lane will be upgraded to a public road standard.

 

The recommended course of action will result in Smiths Lane not being fully upgraded as part of the amended development consent approval. This will no doubt cause some short to medium term traffic conflict and safety issues. However, if the road is upgraded in stages as funds become available, this will progressively overcome any potential traffic conflict and safety issues. It is considered that this will provide the most fair and equitable outcome for all existing and future residents in the locality.

 

Economic

 

In accordance with previous advice, the recommended course of action will result in Smiths Lane not being fully upgraded as part of the amended development consent approval. It is expected that the road will be upgraded in stages as funds become available from contributions by all land owners who will benefit from future subdivision approvals. It is considered that adoption of the Section 94 Contributions Plan will provide a more equitable economic outcome for all existing landowners in the locality.

 

Risk

 

There is a risk that a third party appeal could be lodged by a person(s) who lodged a submission and/or persons aggrieved that his/her development application was not lodged when they had the opportunity because their application did not satisfy all the ballot criteria. There is also a risk that the applicants may lodge an appeal to the Land & Environment Court if they are dissatisfied with Council determination of the S96 modification application.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

If Council decides to adopt the recommendations there may be a financial burden on Council to maintain a sub-standard public road. Furthermore, there may be pressure on Council to upgrade Smiths Lane before sufficient S94 contributions have been collected, or if there are insufficient contributions received to pay for the road to be upgraded to an acceptable standard.


 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

Not applicable at this stage.

Director Environment & Planning's Report

ITEM 10.7??? SF1391??????????? 050810???????? Rejection of Funding Application under the "National Water Security Plan for Citiies and Towns"

 

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

 

Summary:

 

The Council has been advised that its application under the National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns for our project titled, ?Securing our Water ? Implementation of Nambucca Shire Integrated Water Cycle Management Strategy? has been unsuccessful.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That the information concerning the rejection of Council?s application for funding under the, ?National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns? be received.

 

 

Background

 

The Council has been advised that its application under the National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns for our project titled, ?Securing our Water ? Implementation of Nambucca Shire Integrated Water Cycle Management Strategy? has been unsuccessful.? The letter informing Council of this decision is attached.

 

Council had sought $10m under the grant program to be applied to implementing our IWCM.? As a key feature of the IWCM is remedying a critical lack of drought security for the Nambucca Valley, considerable resources were applied to the preparation and follow up of the funding application.? Letters of support were secured from NSW Public Works, a detailed grant application was submitted and followed up with a meeting in Canberra.

 

The purpose of the grant scheme is summarised on the website of the Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts as follows:

 

?As a highly urbanised nation, water resources in our cities and towns are under increasing pressure from growing populations and per capita water consumption, compounded by drought and climate change.? Governments and the private sector need to support the recycling and re-use of water in domestic and commercial settings, and encourage innovation in urban water supply.

 

In response, the Australian Government has committed $254.8 million through the National Water Security Plan for Cities and Towns to fund practical projects that save water and reduce water losses in cities and towns nationally with populations of less than 50,000?.

 

However the Government chose to fund ahead of Council?s project, $17.8m of other projects in NSW.? For example Mid Coast Water, the water utility for Taree and Great Lakes, received $6.1m to reuse treated effluent to irrigate sporting fields, parks, and a golf course as well as to prepare for dual reticulation of new residential estates.? Port Macquarie ? Hastings Council similarly received $350,000 to extend recycled water pipelines.? In Western Australia $18.4m was provided for the construction of a desalination plant.

 

Notwithstanding the advice that Council?s application was judged as being less competitive based on the assessment criteria it is difficult to interpret a consistent theme in funding for desalination plants and reuse schemes but not off river water storages which are designed to meet critical water shortages during drought conditions.? According to the Department, the use of treated effluent to irrigate golf courses or sporting fields is preferred to providing a community with a drought secured potable water supply.? Similarly the off stream dam is not favoured because it is assessed as not creating direct potable water savings but $18.4m for a desalination plant is OK.

 

The decision is very disappointing and may well mean that Council can?t proceed with the IWCM and an off stream water storage for financial reasons.? If that is the case it would be irresponsible for Council to continue to approve new housing and industry when it knows it cannot provide a secure potable water supply during drought conditions.? This will obviously affect the Valley?s economy and also the State Government?s Mid North Coast Strategy.

Director of Engineering Services Report

ITEM 11.1??? SF61??????????????? 050810???????? Professional Lifeguard Services 2009/2010 Contract Report

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Bruce Redman, Director Engineering Services ????????

 

Summary:

 

The 2009/2010 Contract Report from Australian Lifeguard Service has been received.? A selection of pages of statistics are attached.

 

The Christmas holiday period experienced good weather conditions with some high winds.

 

This season (2010/2011) is the first year of a four (4) year contract.

 

Recommendation:

 

That Council note the Annual Report for 2009/2010 by Australian Lifeguard Service.

 

OPTIONS:

 

Note the report.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Nambucca Shire Council uses the Australian Lifeguard Service to provide lifeguard services for our beaches over the Christmas Holidays.

 

Specifically this organisation patrols South Valla Beach, Main Beach, Nambucca and Forster Beach, Scotts Head with two lifeguards in addition to the hours provided by the Nambucca Heads and Scotts Head Surf Life Saving Clubs.

 

Council has an agreement with Australian Lifeguard Service for a four (4) year period ending.

 

The contract provides two (2) Life Guards at the three (3) sites from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm and a local supervisor.? They provided all clothing and equipment at a cost of $51,600 for last year.

 

They also provide a Contract Report and a copy of the 2009/2010 document is available.? The sections on Service Statistics and Beach Visitation are attached to the report.

 

Attendance at beaches rose significantly in December/January compared with the wet holidays in the previous year.? Attendance was 30,977 compared to 18,780 twelve months before.? The beach attendance two years ago was 14,078 so this is a significant increase.

 

The beach visitation numbers are as follows:

The report asks Council to consider extending the time by 1 hour from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm to 9.00 am to 4.00 pm to be consistent with the volunteer Lifesavers.? It is also suggested by the contractor that Council consider providing the service in the Spring and Easter/Autumn holiday periods.? Both aspects were considered where preparing the specification for the new contract and were determined by Council to be cost prohibited.

 



CONSULTATION:

 

Nil.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

No change to the environment.

 

Social

 

The service provides a public safety and education program as well as performing life saving and rescues.

 

Economic

 

The provision of safe beaches is important to holiday visitors.

 

Risk

 

The peak holiday period is December to January during the School holidays and life saving needs to be in place for that period as a minimum.

 

There is a risk of confusion when adjoining Local Government areas have different arrangements and the hours are different to the Volunteer Lifesavers.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

The cost for 2009/2010 of $51,600 is provided in the budget.

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

Normal arrangements included in the budget.

ITEM 11.2??? SF1480??????????? 050810???????? Nambucca Heads Holiday Park - Investigation of Opinion to realign Council pipelines to avoid dwelling encroachment on easement

 

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

 

Summary:

A number of relocatable dwellings at the Nambucca Beach Holiday Park have been located with significant encroachments onto the adjacent Crown Reserve managed by Council.

 

The encroachments also affect a Council easement containing a sewer rising main and a water main.? One of the dwellings is actually located over the pipes.

 

Council has recently inspected the site and at their ordinary meeting on 15 July 2010 made a resolution that resolved to investigate options and costs for relocating the pipes.

 

The pipe realignment is shown on the enclosed plan and the estimated cost of the works is $25,000 excluding any costs for acquisition of additional land for easement purposes.? It is not desirable to take this approach.

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That the cost of $25,000 to realign the sewer rising main be noted.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

The alternate option to relocating the pipe is to have the dwellings located back within the boundary of the Holiday Park or at least off the easement.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Council has had ongoing issues with relocatable dwellings associated with the Nambucca Beach Holiday Park being located so as to encroach on adjacent Crown Reserve that is managed by Council.? Some more recent dwellings also encroach on a Council Easement located within the Reserve.

 

This Easement contains a 300 mm dia sewer rising main and a 150 mm dia water main.? One of the dwellings is partially located over both of the pipes.

 

Following an inspection of the site Council made a resolution that in part requested a report to be prepared on the feasibility and associated cost of relocating the pipes away from the dwelling.

 


The estimated cost of the pipe realignment is detailed below:

Allow $25,000 noting that this does not include costs for acquiring additional land for the pipeline easement

 

Whilst it is possible to realign the pipes away from the dwelling this is not considered to be a preferred option and Council should be aware that there are a number of risks associated with it.

 

Firstly, any realignment of the pipes around the permanent caravan will result in a portion of the new pipe alignment moving outside the existing easement and encroaching on the Crown Reserve.? It is considered that the Crown would be very unlikely to grant approval to the acquisition of additional land for the easement when the only justification for the realignment is to avoid an existing illegal encroachment on the Reserve and current easement.

 

In addition the 300 mm dia. rising main is used to transfer sewage from one of the major pump stations in Nambucca Heads to the Sewage Treatment Plant.? If the pipe were to be taken out of service for an extended period of time alternative arrangements must be made for handling the sewage that will continue to flow into the pump station with no means of being discharged.? As the pump station well has limited storage capacity it will have to be emptied and the sewage transported to the treatment works at regular intervals as a continual operation throughout the night and day.

 

Septic tankers would be used to transfer the sewage from the pump station, however there is always a chance that an overflow could occur.? If such an event did occur the EPA would be likely to impose significant fines, particularly since this work would not be considered to be emergency works.

 

 

CONSULTATION:

 

?????? Director Engineering Services

?????? Property Officer

 


SUSTAINABILITY:

 

Social

 

The pipe realignment would have social impacts for the dwelling occupant and the Park owner.

 

Environment

 

There would be minor environmental impacts associated with any proposed construction works.

 

Economic

 

The pipe realignment would have minimal economic impact for rate payers on the proviso that Park operator is required to pay all costs associated with the work.

 

Risk

 

The alignment of the sewer pipe will have to go outside the existing easement in order to safely avoid the dwelling currently located over the pipes. There is a significant risk that the Crown will not look favourably on an application to acquire additional land for an easement for the reason of avoiding an encroachment on the original easement and Reserve.

 

There is a slight risk of a sewage overflow occurring if the sewer rising main is taken out of service for an extended period of time.

 

 

FINANCIAL:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

It is considered that all work associated with any proposal to relocate the pipes would be completed at the Park operators cost and that there would be no impact on the Council budget.

 

Source of funds and any variance to working funds

 

Funds would be sourced from the Park Operator prior to works commencing.

ITEM 11.3??? SF675????????????? 050810???????? Tender for the Collection of Scrap Metal from Council's Waste Management Facility

 

AUTHOR/ENQUIRIES:???? Simon Chapman, Waste Management Officer ????????

 

Summary:

 

Tenders have been called for the collection of scrap metal from Council?s Waste Management Facilities.? At the conclusion of the Tender period, five (5) Tenders were received with the Tender submitted by Matthews Metal Management being the most advantageous for Council.

 

The Tenders were called through Midwaste to gain a better price by acting collectively.

 

Recommendation:

 

That the Tender submitted by Matthews Metal Management, offering a schedule of prices to be paid for ferrous metal, non ferrous metal and the collection of e-waste be accepted for the period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011.

 

 

OPTIONS:

 

1????????? Accept Matthews Metal Management

2????????? Accept any Tender

3????????????? Not accept any Tender

 

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Midwaste is the forum comprising representatives of eight (8) Councils on the Mid North Coast of NSW, of which Nambucca Shire Council is a member.

 

Midwaste has facilitated the tendering of contracts for the collection of scrap metal from Council's Waste Management Facilities for four (4) of the member Councils being Port Macquarie/Hastings, Kempsey, Great Lakes and Nambucca. Midwaste is not a legal entity and cannot enter into contracts in its own right.

 

It is intended that the successful Tenderer would enter into contractual agreements with the individual Councils.

 

Midwaste also held the view that by acting collectively, a more beneficial schedule of prices may be forthcoming and therefore included an option within the specification for the collective of Councils. It was also the view of the member Council representatives that the fairest approach would be for a contract term of one (1) year, given the volatility of metal prices.

 

Tenderers could submit tenders for one or more individual Councils and/or submit a collective tender, which would include a schedule of rates applicable if all Councils were to enter into contractual agreements with the one contractor.

 

At the conclusion of the tender period, five (5) tenders were received, all providing schedules of prices for individual Councils and for a collective of Councils. The tenderers were:

 

?????????????? Matthews Metal Management P/L

?????????????? Simsmetal

?????????????? Onesteel Recycling

?????????????? Sell & Parker

?????????????? CMA Recycling

 

Onesteel Recycling holds the current contract with Nambucca Shire Council for scrap metal recovery and this contract concluded on 30 June 2010. Onesteel Recycling have been paying $252.00 + GST per tonne for ferrous metal during the twelve (12) month term of the contract.? Ferrous metal represents the majority of scrap metal collected from Councils waste management sites.

 

The evaluation matrix of the tenders was based on, conformity with the tender documents, rates tendered, range of acceptable material for reprocessing according to the schedule of rates, past experience and performance in carrying out the specified or similar works, including the experience of specific individuals nominated by the contractor as part of its team to carry out the works, information supplied covering environmental, technical and commercial aspects of the contract and assessed financial capacity to perform the contract.

This information was presented to the Midwaste Tender Evaluation Panel with an ensuing resolution that it will be a recommendation to each member Council that the tender submitted by Matthews Metal Management for the collective of Councils be accepted.

 

A site visit was made to Matthews Metal Management in Kempsey by representatives of three (3) of the four (4) Councils involved, and the Midwaste Coordinator. Matthews Metal Management provided the second highest price for ferrous metals. They were also the only contractor to tender for the e-waste at zero cost to Council. This, along with the flexibility of service provided by being local to the area was the factor that has led to the recommendation of this report.

 

The value of the income is approximately $65,000 inc gst and under the purchasing policy does not need referral to Council and can be determined under delegated authority, however the opportunity is being taken to increase Council?s awareness in this particular area of waste management.

 

 

CONSULTATION:

 

Extensive consultation occurred between the Midwaste member Council representatives in the preparation of the tender documents and in the assessment of the tenders.

 

 

SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT:

 

Environment

 

Metal waste is recovered and used as a raw material.

 


Social

 

The income from scrap metal is used to offset other cost associated with waste management.

 

Economic

 

Council?s income for 2010/11 was expected to drop as a result of falling metal prices. The estimated payment was based on $150/tonne to raise $37,500 but is now estimated at $63,800 using the tendered price.

 

Risk

 

No identifiable risk.

 

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

 

Direct and indirect impact on current and future budgets

 

The income in 2009/10 was $71,900. The estimated income for 2010/11 based on the tendered price of $228.00/t is $63,800 for ferrous metals. The budgeted income was $37,500 based pm $150/tonne so the income is expected to rise by $26,300 to $63,800.? E-waste is a priority area addressed under the National Waste Policy: Less Waste, More Resources, which was endorsed by the Environment Protection and Heritage Council (EPHC) in November 2009.

 

The Implementation Plan for the National Waste Policy (July 2010) indicates that a co-regulatory Television & Computer Product Stewardship Scheme will commence under the national framework in 2011.? Midwaste, along with other Voluntary Regional Waste Groups, has been involved in discussions with Product Stewardship Australia and the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water in relation to prioritising the introduction of such a scheme in regional areas.

 

Other regional waste groups have initiated collections for e-waste, at an average cost of $1,000/tonne.

 

The financial advantage gained from being able to have e-waste recycled at no cost is at this point unknown, but is likely to be significant.

 

 

Source of fund and any variance to working funds

 

Extra income generated.
