Late Reports

 

 

Report No. 17.2           Coastal Zone Management Plan Update

File No:                        I2015/357

 

15-173

Resolved:

1.    That Council, pursuant to Section 55 (3) of the Local Government Act 1993, does not call tenders for the works to progress the draft Coastal Hazard Management Study Byron Bay Embayment including the additional work on the Cost Benefit Analysis (resolution 15-139 (parts 1 and 2)) because to do that would not achieve a satisfactory result due to the following extenuating circumstances:

a)    The variation at resolution 15 -139 embodies both additional works and revisions to the work already performed as part of the original WRL contract 2013-0034.

b)    The completion of contract 2013-0034, which entails the finalisation of a cost benefit analysis, management study report and the preparation of a management recommendation, is reliant on the works not yet undertaken as per the variation at resolution 15 -139.

c)    Through carrying out a large proportion of the original contract of works, WRL have developed a significant body of specialist knowledge and expertise. This knowledge and expertise will be integral to undertaking the additional works.

d)    Their extensive background and involvement in the management study project to date, place WRL in a competitive position with respect to carrying out the additional works at resolution 15-139.

e)    Council is under a Ministerial Direction to submit the CZMP by 30 June 2015. The Direction is under section 55B of the Coastal Protection Act 1979. In accordance with the CP Act, if Council fails to comply with section 55B then the Minister may:

(a)   review the council’s existing plan and make a new plan to replace that existing plan, and

(b)   recover from the council the costs of doing those things, and

(c)   publish the new plan in the Gazette.

f)     Council has successfully sought extensions to the Minister’s Direction on a number of occasions. The latest advice from the state government is that until the CZMP is submitted and certified, further grant funding applications from Council, under the NSW Government’s Coastal Management Program, will not be considered.

g)    The time pressure exerted by the Minister’s Direction, and the implications regarding funding under the Coastal Management Program, provide an imperative to carry out the additional works, and finalise the management study, in an expeditious fashion.

 

2.    That Council delegate authority to the General Manager to negotiate and enter into a variation to contract 2013-0034 with the consultancy Water Research Laboratory, for the purpose of procuring the additional works at Council resolution 15-139.

 

3.    That Council note the progress to date on carrying out resolution 15-139.  (Woods/Richardson)

Delegates' Reports

Rous Water meeting of 15 April 2015

 

Cr Dey advised the following:

 

Rous Water adopted its draft annual Operational Plan and budget for public exhibition, as we will for our Council here today. 

 

In other business, the question of installing photovoltaic systems (solar panels) on Rous’s two Water Treatment Plants was presented for the second time but again rejected.  I am unimpressed that Rous Council can’t see its way into valuing the Greenhouse Gas reduction that it would achieve by grabbing its electricity out of the sky instead of grabbing it out of a deep hole in the Hunter Valley.  Council voted instead to look at electricity demand management within Rous’s own headquarters and depot.  I support that but it was argued on the basis of the business case.  The refit to Rous’s headquarters has a 12 year pay-back period and yet Rous only has a 7 year lease on the building.  I was flummoxed that a defective business argument was used to do one thing and a sound business case rejected on another. 

 

Richmond Tweed Regional Library (RTRL) Committee meeting of 17 April 2015

 

Cr Dey advised the following:

 

RTRL Committee also looked at their draft budget.  The share proposed for Byron Council to provide for the Regional Library system was set to rise by 4.5% from last years’ contribution.  Byron Council staff and I asked that this be reviewed downwards and RTRL staff will endeavour to do so. 

 

Mullumbimby Civic Hall Board of Management

 

Cr Dey advised the following:

 

Council will advertise an expression of interest in May, for a manager for the hall.  The Board hopes about half of the manager’s role will be to promote the venue and the other half will be to operate it day to day.  Promotion is required to increase the hall’s usage and to turn around its financial viability.

 

Mullumbimby Showground Trust Committee

 

Cr Woods advised the following:

 

Cr Dey and myself are both on the Mullumbimby Showground Trust.
