    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Ivanhoe Grammar School has submitted a Development Plan for approval that outlines the next phase of development of the school. The plan seeks to increase staff and student numbers as well as construct a number of new facilities including a sports centre and underground car park at the southern end of the school and a new senior years building in the centre of the site. The Development Plan has seen a number of revisions following extensive consultation with Council and the community. It is considered the plan, subject to further amendments, is an appropriate outcome that will facilitate an additional phase of development for the school and result in acceptable amenity impacts to surrounding properties.

  • MINUTES ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL 9 JUNE 2015

    Resolution (CO2015/155)

    RECOMMENDATION A That Council having complied with the Development Plan process and Section 60 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, resolves that the Development Plan for the Ivanhoe Grammar School at 41 The Ridgeway, Ivanhoe, be approved after the following amendments to the plan have been made: Sports Centre

    1. In relation to the design of the sports centre, words which indicate that: a. Indicate that the overall height is no greater than 11 metres and further, the

    overall height is kept to the minimum necessary to facilitate the activities listed in the Development Plan having regard to the relevant design standards for netball and basketball court dimensions and clearance. If it is not demonstrated that the clearance heights are necessary, to accommodate the activities listed then the overall height may be less than 11 metres.

    b. It is to incorporate a pitched roof with the ridge running east west so that the wall heights of the building are further minimised at the northern and southern elevations and that the wall heights of the eastern elevation are also minimised. This must result in the wall heights at the northern and southern ends being reduced by up to 2 metres from the maximum overall height.

    c. The sports centre finished in high quality materials, colours and architectural finishes so as to minimise the dominance of the building height and appearance, and also ensuring plant and equipment is located on the opposite side of the sports centre away from residential properties. This should include the use of green, earthy or autumnal colours on the east and north elevations.

    d. The Landscaping master plan includes screening vegetation along the eastern elevation to soften views of the built form from the residential properties to the east.

    e. The presentation to the Boulevard to incorporate themes and elements of the surrounding character which may include prevalence of planting and landscaping, and the use of materials such as stacked stone and brick.

    2. The sports centre use limited to the following: a. School Use - 7am 9.30pm Monday to Thursday, 7am 6pm Friday and 7am-

    1pm on Saturdays without further written consent from Council. No use Sunday without further written consent from Council.

    b. Community Use 7am 9.30pm Monday to Thursday, 7am 6pm Friday and 7am-1pm on Saturdays without further written consent from Council. No use Sunday without further written consent from Council. Community use includes use of school facilities, by individuals or groups, for the purpose of education, recreation, cultural activities for students, the local community (i.e. within Banyule) or young persons. Users do not need to have an affiliation with the school. This may include the hire of facilities by such groups.

    c. Uses that do not fit the above performance measures are not allowed. 3. The primary use of the sports centre during school hours for school purposes. The

    sports centre can be made available for community use but must not be used for commercial purposes.

    4. The sports centre not to be used until all of the spaces within the underground car park are made available.

    5. An acoustic report is to be provided as part of the planning permit application for the sports centre. The sports centre design is to demonstrate how the recommendations within the acoustic report are incorporated. After completion of the sports centre and prior to its use, an acoustic engineer is to provide a certification report to demonstrate compliance with the recommendations within the acoustic report. The building must be tested during use for typical activities.

    Intensity of use at southern end of the school

    6. Activities within Locksley House limited to the hours of 7am-9.30pm weekdays and 7am-5pm Saturday.

    7. A requirement that the uses across the site including the proposed sports centre, Locksley House and the swimming pool facility, are scheduled so that future events avoid a scenario whereby multiple facilities are operating at high capacity concurrently outside of school hours. The combined total occupancy of facilities must not at any time exceed the number of people derived from a calculation of the standard car parking ratio for place of assembly having regard to the number of car parking spaces available within the at-grade and underground sports centre car parking spaces plus the at grade spaces to the north west of Locksley House. Should there be an instance where this is unavoidable, Ivanhoe Grammar is to obtain the prior written consent of Council in advance of the events occurring.

    NOTE: Please refer Urgent Business Item 10.1 (CO2015/175) of this agenda for correction of wording of point 7 (above) to replace the word NORTH with WEST.

    8. The future planning permit application for the sports centre must be submitted with details of how the facility will be managed to regulate its use for community purposes.

    The meeting resumed at 9.30pm Cr Jenny Mulholland was not in the chamber at the resumption of the meeting. Cr Jenny Mulholland returned at 9.36pm. 4.4 PROPOSED NINE TO TEN STOREY MIXED USE BUILDING AT 4-6 FLINTOFF

    STREET, GREENSBOROUGH Ray Psaila and Anton Buenemann spoke on the item.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The proposal seeks to construct a 9 to 10 storey mixed use development which will have a maximum height of 29.4 metres in height on the land at 4-6 Flintoff Street, Greensborough. The development comprises 65 apartments, 4 shops and 3 office tenancies. A total of 70 car spaces are proposed which is 62 spaces less than the total required by the Planning Scheme. A key consideration for Council in determining this application is the extent to which it proposes an alternative response to the height and building form set out in Schedule 1 to the Activity Centre Zone applying to the Greensborough Principal Activity Centre. Councils resolution to undertake a review of precinct 6 of the Activity Centre Zone in which the subject site is located is also a relevant consideration. While the proposal is in excess of the height requirements of the current controls, it is considered that a modified version of the proposal is appropriate having regard to Urban Design Guidelines currently being developed by Councils Strategic Planning team which will form the basis of a future Planning Scheme Amendment. This would envisage an 8 storey development with a 4 storey podium including a landmark element on the Flintoff/Grimshaw Street intersection. Resolution (CO2015/157)

    That Council having complied with Section 52, 58, 60, 61 and 62 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, resolves that a Notice of Decision to Grant a Planning Permit, or in the case of the objection being withdrawn before this decision a Planning Permit be issued, in respect of Application No. P563/2014 for Buildings and works for the construction of a multi-storey building, alteration of access to a Road Zone Category 1, use of land for dwelling and reduction of on site car parking at 4 - 6 Flintoff Street GREENSBOROUGH subject to the

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Councillor Phillips left the Chamber at 10:38 pm. The applicant, Cartmell Street Joint Venture, seeks to build a five story building plus basement, with 66 one and two bedroom apartments. The building is attached at the basement and is then separated into two distinct forms; the separation between buildings increases with height. Car parking is provided in a basement accessed from Cartmell Street. All resident parking is provided on-site, however a reduction of five (5) visitor car spaces is required. There is no significant vegetation on the site. The design of the building provides a positive response to the intentions of the DDO5 however there is a variation to the preferred overall building height and height of the podium faade. The variation is supported because: Due to the slope of the site the building will have a maximum height of 16.5m above

    street footpath level. This is only 3.5m higher than the 13.0m suggested for Precinct Plan 3 at section 8 of the DDO5.

    The upper two levels are well recessed from all sides of the building and occupy only the central part of the overall site.

    The building setbacks are considered to be responsive to the streetscape and abutting land uses.

    A comprehensive assessment has been made with regard to topography and public views of the Burgundy St valley. The overall height of the building will not significantly impact views of the valley.

    The modest shortfall in visitor car parking is also considered acceptable given the location of the site within walking distance of the Heidelberg Train Station, Smart Buses along Burgundy St and adjoining public car park. There is however substantial community interest in this proposal with 38 objections received. The majority of these objections are from surrounding properties in Cartmell, Hawdon, and Darebin Streets. It is recommended that the application is approved with appropriate conditions.

    The development of the Ivanhoe Structure Plan and preparation of the associated planning scheme amendments have occurred over a four year period and have included extensive community consultation and a Panel Process. Although there were interim controls in the planning scheme to guide development in Ivanhoe in the form of schedules 11 and 12 to the Design and Development Overlay (DDO), these controls expired on 31 May 2015. This report advises Council that Amendment C93 for permanent controls has been approved by the Minister for Planning. The Amendment came into effect when notice of the approval was published in the Victoria Government Gazette on Thursday 28 May 2015. This report also outlines the changes that the Minister has made to the Amendment since it was adopted by Council on 1 December 2014. Resolution (CO2015/159)

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Investigations have been undertaken as to whether there may be increased opportunity to allow commercial advertising on Council land. Commercial advertising has the potential to provide additional revenue streams and improved Council assets. Current practices in relation to four types of advertising on Council land have been examined and the possibilities to expand the advertising potential within each type are considered. The four types are:

    Council Owned Outdoor Assets these include bus shelter, public bins, light poles, shelters and canopies

    Advertising on Council owned buildings and land - this includes the possibility of advertising signs within car parks and road reserves

    Sponsorship Signs at Sporting Clubs advertising at the entry of reserves as well as on pavilions and coaches boxes

    Temporary Signs on Council Owned Land - these sites are used for non-commercial advertising and generally use by community groups.

    Resolution (CO2015/160)

    That Council: 1) Examine the current bus shelter contract with JCDecaux to consider whether there is

    an opportunity to add additional bus shelters including those displaying advertising, as well as the addition of poster board style signs in key locations throughout the municipality for a commercial return or additional public assets such as bus shelters.

    2) Undertake a pilot project for a future commercial advertising program on Council land by initially focusing on a single Promotion Sign on the corner of Para Road and Flintoff Street Greensborough. The pilot project should include:

    i. Engagement of an appropriate consultant to assist in preparing the necessary

    documentation for a planning permit application and any subsequent commercial arrangements associated with leasing of the sign;

    ii. Preparation of plans for a promotion sign on the corner of Para Road and Flintoff Street, Greensborough;

    iii. Obtaining a planning permit for the sign; iv. Undertaking an Expression of Interest (EOI) process seeking interest in the

    leasing of the sign to the commercial advertising industry (subsequent to a planning permit being issued).

    3) Undertake a process to amend the Outdoor Advertising Policy to allow sponsorship advertising on sporting ground structures that face main roads. Further guidance and requirements are also to be provided in relation to freestanding club identification and sponsorship signs adjoining the main sportsground entrance including standard Banyule logos and format. The amended policy is to undergo consultation with sporting groups and is to be brought back to Council for approval.

    4) Amend the Outdoor Advertising Policy in regard to temporary community notice boards to:

    a. Include the following sites as additional designated locations for the display of

    temporary community notice boards:

    AK Lines Reserve Grimshaw Street, Watsonia Greensborough Park Diamond Creek Road, Greensborough Ivanhoe Park Lower Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe East De Winton Park Grove Road, Rosanna Warringal Parklands Beverley Road, Heidelberg Heidelberg Park Beverley Road, Heidelberg Ford Park Banksia Street, Bellfield

    b. Allow two temporary signs to be displayed at each of the approved sites

    including existing and additional.

    5) Following the approval of additional sites for temporary community notice boards, proactive enforcement action is to occur to ensure the removal of unlawfully erected and displayed notice boards.

    6.3 ADDITIONAL PAID PARKING LOCATIONS Roger Fyfe spoke on the item.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Approximately $70,000 of savings were generated by the changes in the scope for the 2014/15 paid parking projects and a successful tender process for the supply and installation of ticket machines. This offers the opportunity to expand the paid parking systems in Banyule. The parking occupancy levels for 12 locations across the municipality have been assessed, with results showing high usage across most locations. The cost of the installation of paid parking systems in half of the locations can be covered using the savings from the 2014/15 paid parking projects. The remaining locations are estimated to generate sufficient revenue to cover the cost of installation within a 12-18 month period. The Heidelberg Car Parking Reserve has sufficient funds to cover the costs of installing paid parking systems at these locations. While it is appropriate to allocate revenue from paid parking systems into reserves for parking management, it is also appropriate that a portion of such revenue be allocated to General Revenue to provide for Councils broader services. Therefore 33% of the paid parking system revenue is proposed to be allocated to General Revenue. Resolution (CO2015/161)

    There has been some progress on planning for the proposed North East Link in the three months since last reported to Council. A response has been received from the Hon. Luke Donnellan, Minister for Roads and Road Safety, in relation to Councils letter seeking advice on the Governments plans for the North East Link and the truck curfew trial proposed for some declared Main Roads in Banyule. The response addresses a potential North East Link within the context of a broader infrastructure strategy and the establishment of Infrastructure Victoria which will advise the Government on key planning projects and infrastructure priorities. The Ministers response also indicates that VicRoads is currently developing a communications plan for a Rosanna Road working group, and requested Council to nominate officers to be represented on the working group. VicRoads senior officers have met with Council to discuss initial staging of a Main Road truck curfew in Banyule.

    The RACV has released its Directions 2015 document which outlines the transport issues that are important to its members and the Victorian Community in the areas of mobility, safety and affordability. The document cites the North East Link as its number one project. The current State Government has abandoned the East West Link project. This may lead to an opportunity to promote the North East Link as an alternative project. The draft Banyule Integrated Transport Plan (BITP) outlines Councils position on the North East Link as a direct orbital link between the Metropolitan Ring Road to Eastlink. Residential and community feedback on the BITP will be invited until August 2015. Resolution (CO2015/163)

    4.6 UPDATE ON THE NEIGHBOURHOOD RESIDENTIAL ZONE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The new residential zones were approved for the Banyule Planning Scheme last year. As part of the approval the previous Minister for Planning replaced the two tailored schedules Council proposed for the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ), with one neutral schedule. The two schedules proposed by Council were then referred to the Residential Zones Standing Advisory Committee (the Committee) for review as draft amendment C125. After the schedules were referred to the Committee, Council resolved that further analysis and consultation should be done before pursuing refinements to the NRZ. Council also resolved to request that the Minister abandon the draft amendment so this further work could be progressed. The Committee has since reviewed the draft amendment and has agreed with Councils position that further analysis and community consultation should be done before any further changes are made to the NRZ. The new Minister for Planning has agreed with the Committees recommendations. While awaiting this decision, Council completed the first stage of its further analysis. The analysis report recommends that the existing schedule to the NRZ (as introduced by the previous Minister) be retained in the Banyule Planning Scheme and monitored for its effectiveness before any further analysis is done for any future changes to it.

    4.7 BANKSIA REDEVELOPMENT SITE AND BANKSIA COMMUNITY STADIUM

    PRECINCT PROJECT UPDATE (FORMER BANKSIA SECONDARY COLLEGE) EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    Banyule City Council purchased three former school sites in November 2013 to amongst other things, secure an important community asset, the Banksia Community Stadium. The asset was until then, owned by the Victorian State Government forming part of the Banksia Secondary College. Given the closure of three schools within the municipality, in September 2014 Banyule Council resolved to retain the Bellfield site keeping it available for the State to purchase and re-establish as an educational facility following the 2014 State election. The current government has not expressed a desire to re-acquire the site. Following a series of investigations, it is now established that, consistent with Sport and Recreation Victoria guidelines, the existing stadium structure is not suitable for refurbishment. The building structure is in a state of disrepair and subject to ongoing vandalism. In readiness for a new purpose built facility, the delivery of a master planning exercise is now deemed appropriate parallel to the demolition of the existing structure. It is considered that any investment in undertaking short-term remedial works to the existing stadium would deliver limited community benefit and will still ultimately result in the structure being demolished. Resolution (CO2015/166)

    That Council:

    1. Reconfirms its commitment to provide $7m towards the Banksia Community Stadium precinct project.

    2. Continue to seek and investigate community, State and Commonwealth funding and support for the Banksia Community Stadium precinct project.

    3. Initiate further consultation with the community and potential user groups (including

    4. Consider a future report outlining the outcomes of the community consultation. 5. Subject to budget approval, begin preparation of a precinct master plan which

    considers the area bounded by Darebin Creek, Ford Park, Waterdale Road, Banksia Street and Perkins Avenue, including the multipurpose stadium site.

    6. PERFORMANCE - USE OUR RESOURCES WISELY

    6.2 CARBON TAX REPEAL ASSESSMENT EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The Clean Energy Act 2011 has been repealed. This abolishes the carbon pricing mechanism (CPM) from 1 July 2014. The Clean Energy Regulator is the Government body which administers the CPM and legislation to reduce carbon emissions and increase the use of clean energy. On 17 July 2014 the Clean Energy Legislation (Carbon Tax Repeal) Act 2014 amended the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (the CCA) to include a new Part V Carbon Tax Price Reduction Obligation. The carbon tax price reduction obligation requires suppliers of regulated goods to pass through all cost savings relating to the regulated supply that are directly or indirectly attributable to the carbon tax repeal (s.60C of the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) CCA). The focus of the carbon tax repeal is on regulated goods because these were the goods most significantly affected by the carbon tax. Regulated goods are:

    natural gas electricity synthetic greenhouse gas (SGG), or synthetic greenhouse gas equipment (s. 60B of the CCA).

    Suppliers of regulated goods have since passed through their cost savings attributable to the carbon tax repeal to Banyule City Council. The Council will pass through the total cost saving, estimated to be $480,344, back into the community. There are no specific legal obligations on, or requirements of, Councils in relation to how they will pass on cost savings. A number of options have been presented for consideration to effect a pass through of cost savings to the community: Option 1 - refund to the individual rate payer Option 2 credit offset against future rate charges of the individual rateable property Option 3 - reduction in future rate increase by the value of the cost saving Option 4 - allocation to an environmental reserve to fund future projects The options to refund or credit the individual (option 1 & 2) are not considered equitable options. The amount to be returned will need to be calculated as an equal share across all rateable properties and will not reflect the proportion actually paid by each individual. These options will also incur an administration cost which will dilute the amount available to return back to the community If Council was to apply the option to reduce future rate increases (option 3) there would be a potential delay in submitting the budget to Parliament. Council would also incur additional costs. The 2015/2016 budget has been prepared and is awaiting adoption. Any change to the rate increase may require the draft budget 2015/2016 to be re-worked and re-issued for public consultation. A cost neutral and equitable approach would be to apply option 4, and apply the funds to an environmental reserve for future community investment. It is envisage that the funds would be held in reserve (carried forward) for allocation by Council towards environmentally sustainable projects. Option 4 being recommended as the preferred option.
