    1. PETITIONS

    1.1 IVANHOE GRAMMAR SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PLAN CONSULTATION

    Mr Geoff Purcell, Mr David King, Robyn Roberts, Mr Ian Frost, Mr Paul Simmons and Mrs Nina Kelleher spoke on the item. A petition regarding the Ivanhoe Grammar School Development Plan with 238 signatures has been received primarily from residents living within the streets surrounding the Ivanhoe Grammar School. The petition prayer is as follows: We the undersigned: Residents of Banyule City Council request that: Banyule City Council and its Planning staff:

    1. Establish a series of community consultation meetings about the proposed Ivanhoe grammar School Development Plan to:

    a. More fully audit existing amenity impacts of the Ivanhoe Grammar School, Ivanhoe Campus and its site/s use on the community; and

    b. Identify the future amenity impacts of the proposed IGS Development Plan on our community; with separate community consultation meeting to review separate aspects of the Plan, so that adequate time is allowed for the community to understand and consider all the issues.

    2. Establish an on-going community group, which meets regularly with Council planning staff and the school to consider suggestions for resolving school and community conflicts before the plan is approved.

    Resolution (CO2013/324)

    That

    1. Council receives and notes the petition

    2. The proposed resident interest group include 10 residents instead of the 6 initially proposed

    3. Community consultation sessions be held to discuss and provide information on the development plan as needed

    4. The primary petitioner be advised that Council considers its resolution of 26 August, regarding future consultation subject to the changes outlined in points 2 and 3 above, is sufficient to ensure meaningful community engagement.

    5. Concerns raised in the petition be considered as a submission to the Development Plan application process and incorporated into the merits assessment of the application.
