    2.1 DRAFT ELECTRONIC GAMING MACHINE POLICY 2014

    Author: Michelle Rowe - Community & Social Planner, Corporate Services

    File: F2014/249

    SUMMARY

    To present the Draft Banyule Electronic Gaming Machine Policy and Community Consultation Report to Council for consideration, discussion and potential adoption.

    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.

    CITY PLAN

    This report is in line with Councils City Plan People Policy, key direction to promote and support health and wellbeing.

    BACKGROUND

    Following the Councillor Briefing Session on 6th February 2014 the Banyule Electronic Gaming Machine Policy and Plan 2008 was reviewed (in line with City Plan Commitment 1.1.3) and a new Policy drafted in line with Councils preferred Policy direction. The new Banyule Electronic Gaming Machine Policy 2014 Policy has been drafted to:

    Reflect the Councils positions around its various decision making arenas;

    Explain the role and importance of Social and Economic Impact Assessments (SEIA)

    Articulate a harm minimisation focus direction in postcode area 3081; while maintaining the balance for open, fair and transparent decision making and guidance for applicants through the planning application process.

    ADVOCACY

    This Electronic Gaming Machine Policy will inform Councils agenda and advocacy position in relation to EGMs.

    HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER

    In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited, restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report.

    DRAFT ELECTRONIC GAMING MACHINE POLICY 2014 contd

    Ordinary Meeting of Council - 2 June 2014 Page 6

    It is considered that the subject matter does raise issues relating to the Charter, specifically the right to protection of families and children. This right includes matters which impact and affect the welfare of children within the family, and there has been much debate and research into the effects of EGMs and gambling on the welfare of families and children.

    CONSULTATION

    The draft policy was available for public comment over a period of four weeks. Contact was made with each venue and specific feedback sought in relation to the Policy. Other than informal telephone discussions, only one other piece of written feedback was provided. This feedback was considered and has been incorporated in the final version of the draft policy. A summary of the feedback received is contained in Attachment 2.

    DISCUSSION

    Banyules Electronic Gaming Machine (EGM) Policy and Plan was a five year plan adopted by Council on 19th May 2008. There has been substantial change over the past five years in the legislative framework and context within which EGMs operate. It was necessary to update Banyules EGM Policy and Plan so that it remains relevant and useful. Considerable work has been underway over the past four months to review and update the policy so that it reflects and guides Banyule City Councils strategic policy positions in relation to Electronic Gaming within the municipality and surrounding areas, where the Council has a direct decision making responsibility; is acting as a referral authority; or has an advisory role. At a briefing on 10 February 2014, Councillors approved the process associated with the development of Banyules Electronic Gaming Machine Policy Statement and Plan 2014. In broad terms the review involved:

    Reviewing previous Council Policies and supporting materials;

    Seeking direction as to the Councils preferred Policy model; Updating Policy Discussion and new Draft Policy in line with current policy

    context;

    Establishing a Policy Reference Group to clearly define broad intent of Councils Policy position;

    Circulating the Draft EGM Policy and Background Paper for community comment

    Establishing a Working Group to support and oversee the implementation of the 2014 P
