    1.1 PETITION AGAINST PLANNING APPLICATION AT 118 LOCKSLEY ROAD, EAGLEMONT

    Author: Georgia Coulson - Planning Technical Officer, City Development

    Ward: Griffin

    File: P187/14

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A petition with 24 signatures of Eaglemont residents has been received. The petition raises concern in relation to a Planning Application currently under consideration for four three storey dwellings at 118 Locksley Road, Eaglemont. We the undersigned, residents and rates payers of the Banyule City Council wish to bring to the attention of Council: The petition prayer is as follows: Our petition is against the proposed development at 118 Locksley Road, Eaglemont, for the construction of four three storey dwellings with removal of vegetation in a vegetation protection overlay. Planning permit application number P187/2014. We therefore request Banyule Council to:

    Refuse permit due to the height and overall mass and reduction in garden space, the design is out of keeping with the character of the streetscape, loss of privacy to residents in the neighbourhood, and increased noise and traffic impact.

    OFFICER COMMENT

    A detailed assessment of the application against the relevant sections of the Banyule Planning Scheme will be undertaken in due course by Council Officers.

    RECOMMENDATION

    1. That Council receives and notes the petition.

    2. Concerns raised in the petition be considered in assessing the merits of the application.

    3. The primary petitioner is advised accordingly.

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    At its Meeting on 21 July 2014, Council resolved to make the Panel Report for Amendment C93 (Ivanhoe Structure Plan) publicly available. Council also resolved to approve a two-step process for addressing the recommendations outlined in the Panel Report: Step 1 involves allocating each Panel recommendation into one of the following three categories: 1. Accept 2. Partially Accept 3. Not Accept Step 2 involves completing further work to prepare a final amendment that Council would consider for adoption at a future Council meeting. Attachment 1 to the report gives the Panel recommendations coupled with one of the three categories. This report seeks Councils direction on Step 1 and proceeding to Step 2. It is also recommended that a final report be presented to Council, in not more than three months, seeking the adoption of Amendment C93 and requesting approval from the Minister for Planning.

    OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter.

    BANYULE PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENT C93 - CONSIDERATION OF PANEL RECOMMENDATIONS contd

    Ordinary Meeting of Council - 18 August 2014 Page 6

    BACKGROUND

    The Ivanhoe community has helped to shape the Ivanhoe Structure Plan and the associated planning scheme controls proposed through Amendment C93. The results of community consultation have shown that there is general community support for the proposed planning scheme controls. Those remaining concerns about particular elements of the planning scheme amendment were heard by a Planning Panel on 13 and 14 May 2014. In reaching its conclusions and recommendations the Panel considered written submissions, evidence and verbal presentations at the Panel Hearing. The Panels conclusions and recommendations are outlined in the Panel Report dated 1 July 2014. At its meeting on 21 July 2014 Council resolved to make the Panel Report for Amendment C93 publicly available, thereby meeting the requirements of Section 26(1) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. Council also resolved to approve a two-step process for addressing the recommendations outlined in the Panel Report as follows: Step 1 involves allocating each Panel recommendation into one of the following three categories 1: Accept, 2: Partially Accept, 3: Not Accept. Step 2 involves completing further work to prepare a final amendment that Council would consider for adoption at a future Council meeting.

    DISCUSSION

    Since the Council Meeting on 21 July 2014, work has been done for Step 1, by considering and allocating each Panel recommendation into one of the three categories. Councils decision to accept, partially accept or not accept each Panels recommendation will not only be influenced by t
