    1. PETITIONS

    1.1 REDEVELOPMENT OF THE FORMER HAIG STREET PRIMARY SCHOOL SITE IN THE OLYMPIA WARD

    Miss Ava Fisher, Mr Matthew Keenan and Mr Shaun Macleod spoke on the item

    A petition with 225 signatures has been received from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area. In addition, a related petition with 49 signatures has been received from children and young people in the Heidelberg Heights area. The petition prayer from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area is as follows: Banyule City Council is placing 32,000 square metres up for tender for development for medium density housing at the Haig Street Primary School site. There are currently no plans for retention of open space by the council, nor considerations for increased traffic in the surrounding roads. The project funds the Bellfield basketball refurbishment at the expense of the Heidelberg Heights neighborhood. We therefore request Banyule Council to: 1. Include a replacement park as part of any redevelopment of the Haig St Primary School

    site. Any open space minimum requirements should be provided in the form of land rather than dollars. We believe that out of a 32,000 square meter site, 3,000 square meters is a reasonable request for open space and that the park should be accessible from both Haig and Bonar Streets.

    2. That the surrounding blocks receive an upgrade to traffic controls such as speed bumps

    and curves to keep our streets safe, particularly for children.

    Resolution (CO2013/431)

    That:

    1. Council receives and notes the petition.

    2. Council confirms its commitment to provide for regional and local recreational facilities including a new basketball/netball facility at the former Banksia Secondary School site.

    3. Council adopts the open space proposal attached to this report on the basis that the cost impact is minimised by utilising the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension (1459m) and an adjoining area of developable land (941m) to the east providing a total open space area of 2400m.

    4. Council establishes the public open as soon as possible with design and layout to be prepared prior to June 30th, 2014.

    5. That council confirms that the future zoning be residential growth zone.

    6. That a detail design of traffic management treatment incorporating traffic calming devises and beautification of the area in front of the shops on Haig Street also be prepared prior to June 30th 2014.

    7 . That a further traffic management options be considered in adjoining streets to the former school site in response to the proposed
