    4.1 GRAFFITI MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

    A presentation was made by Council officers on the Graffiti Management Strategy EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The Graffiti Management Strategy 2015-18 has been finalised and provides a framework for Banyule City Council to holistically address graffiti management across the municipality. As part of the process, a Graffiti Summit with key stakeholders was held in late 2013 and subsequent public consultation with the broader community took place in 2014.

    Graffiti is defined as the marking of private property without permission. It negatively affects peoples perceptions of safety and the appearance of an area, and creates a large cost to various Council departments and the community for clean-up.

  • MINUTES ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL 16 FEBRUARY 2015

    These minutes are circulated subject to confirmation by Council at the next Ordinary Meeting to be held on 2 March 2015 7

    While it is not possible to eliminate graffiti altogether, Council recognises that this is a community issue that must be addressed proactively and with a range of responses. Rapid removal, education and engagement with young people, the community and external stakeholders is integral to addressing the issue. Over the next four years, through this Strategy, Council is committed to continuing to provide leadership and coordination in addressing the challenges of graffiti across the organisation and externally within the community. It will continue its focus across the Four Es strategic framework i.e. Eradication, Engagement, Education and Enforcement.

    A four year action plan has been developed to ensure a strategic response and assist Council with continuous improvement and future planning. Councillor Mulholland left the Chamber at 8.35 pm. Councillor Mulholland returned to the Chamber at 8.44 pm. Resolution (CO2015/27)

    That Council endorse the Graffiti Management Strategy 2015-2018 and four (4) year action plan.

    1.1 NOISE FROM LOVITT TECHNOLOGY AT 207 PARA ROAD, MONTMORENCY

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A petition with 46 signatories has been received regarding noise emitted from Lovitt Technologies to neighbouring residents. The petition prayer is as follows: To the Mayor and Councillors of the Banyule City Council. We the undersigned, residents and ratepayers of Bakewell in the City of Banyule wish to bring to the attention of Council, unreasonable noise entering our homes during prohibited and non-prohibited times from Lovitt Technologies at 207 Para Road Montmorency and to a far lesser extent other buildings along the Plenty River Nature reserve. Lovitt Technology in particular emit noise from their manufacturing facility on a 24/7 basis. This noise has increased since the extensions were completed. This impacts of our health and wellbeing especially as it disturbs our sleep. We therefore request the Banyule Council visit Lovitt Technologies and carry out 24/7 investigations and whatever necessary, to have the above cease creating the objectionable noises that enters our residential area and contravenes The Environment Protection Regulations by penetrating our homes. Council cannot conduct the request stated in the petition. The above regulations cannot be applied to noise emitted from an Industrial premises. The primary piece of legislation governing Industrial noise is the State Environment Protection Policy (Control of Noise from

    Commerce, Industry and Trade) No. N-1 (SEPPN-1). This policy can only be enforced by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). Council has submitted on behalf of the affected residents a request to the EPA that they investigate the noise for compliance with SEPPN-1. The EPA have initially declined resulting in residents further submitted noise logs and complaints to both the EPA and Council. Councils Health Services are in the process of organising a meeting between the affected residents, Council officers (Health and Planning) and a representative from the EPA to find a resolution to the matter. Considering that SEPPN-1 is the primary piece of legislation governing the noise levels emitted from Lovitt Technologies, the best outcome for the affected residents requires the involvement of the EPA to investigate and provide enforcement of the above policy if required.

    Resolution (CO2015/28)

    That Council: 1. Receives and notes the petition. 2. Advocate on behalf of the affected residents by facilitating a meeting between residents

    and the Environment Protection Authority which is the body responsible for investigating and providing enforcement of this matter.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    This report is in response to a Notice of Motion raised at the Council Meeting held on 18 August 2014, proposing the establishment of a program to provide opportunities for TAFE and university students from Banyules Indigenous and migrant communities. The objective of the program would be to provide an opportunity for participants to gain practical skills and work experience and include remunerated as well as voluntary placements, while ensuring the skills of individuals are not exploited. This report details Councils endeavours to establish relationships with existing providers within the municipality that support employment and training for disadvantaged groups, as well as highlighting the work being done with Banyule Community Health to prepare for an indigenous employment program. The recently endorsed Multicultural Plan 2014-2017 submitted to Council on 15 December 2014 complements this endeavour, and activities will be coordinated in this space.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The Time Out Youth Homelessness Early Intervention project commenced in December 2012, with the initial 3 month period designated to the establishment of the service model, referral pathways and practice tools. Subsequently in April 2013 the Time Out service commenced providing individual support to young people experiencing homelessness and without independent living supports in place. The purpose of the Time Out service was to:

    - stabilise young peoples informal couch surfing arrangements, - support young people to remain connected to education/training and their local

    community - prevent young people from having to enter the homelessness service sector.

    Support provided to young people consisted of brokerage to stabilise informal accommodation arrangements, supported referrals to specialist support services and brokerage and information support to young peoples host families.

    Over the course of the services operational period, Time Out supported 18 young people, their host families and/or family of origin. In addition, the service provided critical support and advice to internal service units and worked closely with community agencies, schools and organisations. Through work with young people and host families, Time Out identified gaps in information available to support young people living in informal arrangements. To address this, a series of resources were developed to assist host families and schools to support young people who are living away from home. The resources Living Out and The Learning Journey are being circulated throughout the local youth support network and the broader homelessness service system.

    Resolution (CO2015/30)

    That Council endorses the publications Living Out and The Learning Journey developed as part of the Time Out project.
