i)     Establishing an affordable housing target to provide the incentive to implement, measure and monitor the provision of affordable housing within the Byron Shire.

 

ii)     Measures that encourage the promotion of the efficient supply of well-located diverse housing;

 

iii)    Incentives that promote the provision of affordable housing enabled through the LEP and other planning policies;

 

iv)   Requirements for the development of affordable housing in appropriate locations with the use of mandatory provisions;

 

v)    A review of Section 94 concessions to identify and consider support for affordable housing developments such as:

 

· an agreed rental to achieve an affordability concession; e.g. 80% market value

· the development of a council maintained affordability register to provide data on affordability developments and to measure if any agreed upon targets for affordability in the Shire are being achieved.

 

vi)   A review of the timing of Section 64 and Section 94 charges to encourage affordable housing initiatives (e.g. payment of charges delayed until an occupation certificate is granted).

Proposed adjustments to the Byron Bay Town Centre Masterplan include:

 

5.4 Main Beach

 

Short Term Priorities [2016-2021]

 

Main Beach should be celebrated as a natural foreshore environment that supports both active and passive recreational uses, strengthening Main Beach’s role as Byron Bay’s most popular asset. Recognising the Byron Bay Pool facility has both a long history of community support and a memorial dedication; it is considered important to understand the current user needs and broader community aspirations. The importance of the foreshore car park area to locals has been expressed throughout the Master plan processes. Byron’s surf culture and connection to this space is recognised as is the strong community desire to create a more visually appealing space. A redesigned foreshore parkland, integrating car parking, a new Main Beach boardwalk, extended Apex Park and Jonson Street shared link will enhance the iconic views towards Byron Bay’s hinterland and preserve the vistas from the Main Beach Area.  Ongoing community consultation will be integral in the process of determining the best balance of uses for the space. In collaboration with Crown Lands the existing surf lifesaving club should be upgraded into a modern facility, whilst the current and future demands for swimming and aquatic facilities require the pool facilities to be upgraded.

 

3. Swimming Pool Upgrade

The community’s swimming and aquatic needs require the swimming pool to be upgraded into a year round, modern facility taking into account all current and future uses in the context of costs associated with the maintenance and upgrade of this critical infrastructure. The swimming pool should continue to  adequately support pool users as well as offering some commercial capacity such as a restaurant, beachside café and community space. It is important that the upgraded facility operate all year and appropriately addresses the adjoining parkland space. All specific user groups and stakeholders to be engaged in the upgrade process.

 

4. Main Beach Car Park

The importance of the car park to locals as a meeting point has been expressed through the master plan process. Through an inclusive community engagement process the Main Beach car park should be redesigned to enable a more people friendly foreshore environment, including vehicular access, car spaces, a new boardwalk, coastal works and a larger recreational space. Alternate parking surfaces could be introduced to better integrate the car park facility into the parklands. The car park should become a flexible space that has the capability to change its function dependent on varying demand and usage throughout the day and week.

 

Catalyst Site 6 - Byron Recreation Grounds

Short Term Priorities [2016-2021]

The Byron Recreation Ground should retain its role as a local sporting, recreation and community resource that is used for a range of compatible activities for all ages, with a focus on children and youth. The Cavanbah Sports Centre should remain Council’s focus for facilities for higher grade competitive sports. The Byron Recreation Ground should be strongly linked to the Town Centre, Sandhills Scrubland Walk and foreshore reserves, local schools and adjoining residential areas. The community should continue to play a vital role in planning for future improvements and use.                                                                                  (Spooner/Richardson)

Petitions

 

1.    Byron Shire Rural Land Use Strategy

 

The Mayor tabled a petition containing 117 signatures which states:

 

“We, the undersigned strongly object the plans outlined in the Byron Shire Rural Land Use Strategy for the following reasons:

 

1.  The potential 740 new dwellings proposed for Main Arm, the Pocket and Middle Pocket would ruin our rural and social amenity.

2.  Our areas are of significant environmental values with prime farmland that needs to be preserved.

3.  Our areas are flood liable and periodically isolated from towns and unsuitable for new large scale housing developments

4.  Our areas are too far from towns and inconsistent with State's directive to locate rural subdivisions close to towns.

5.  It will be cost prohibitive and economically unsustainable to repair the roads and make them flood proof.

6.  It will allow development on land up to a 33% slope that will result in erosion, landslip and wastewater treatment problems.

7.  Our landscape is very hilly, heavily forested with high bushfire risks making it inappropriate for this type of development.

8.  The 59 new possible dwellings already approved for Main Arm, plus secondary dwellings, is already enough for our areas.”

 

2.    Speed bump needed in Blackwood Crescent, Bangalow

 

The Mayor tabled a petition containing 26 signatures which states:

 

Speed bump needed in Blackwood Crescent, Bangalow.

Delegates' Reports

1.       Marsden’s Law Group  Local Government and Planning Law Conference 3 June 2016

 

Councillor Ibrahim advised Council:

 

I thank Council for making it possible for me to attend the Marsden’s Law Group Local Government and Planning Law Conference on Friday 3 June. We were honoured to receive one hour lecture from the Honourable Paul Toole, Minister for Local Government. He explained to us the wisdom and importance of the Local Government reforms that he had undertaken. He gave us some examples of councils, rural councils generally though I must say, remote rural councils, which have benefitted from amalgamations and the added capacity that those councils will have to provide goods and services for their respective rate payers and residents. He noted this is only the beginning of the reform process and that there would be other reforms along the way. He encouraged councils to get on board and work towards supporting the reform process which he said was long overdue and that Governments of both persuasions had been talking about Local Government reform for the last 50 years but no one had the guts to do anything about it but this government is doing it. He also noted that staff positions have been protected for 3 years and he though the criticisms around staff losses were unfair. He also pointed out that in terms of representation, it was only going to be 12 months in which the current councillors in those amalgamated councils couldn’t play a regulatory role although he had formed advisory groups that those Councillors could sit on and noted that in September 2017 there will be general elections so there will only be a 12 month period under administration so that was interesting but we weren’t allowed to ask questions so it was short and sweet. Other than that, I think one of the important presentations we received and a lot of it is about new development, new housing in the greater Sydney area. The plans that are occurring there and finally it seemed that there is a recognition now at the top end of the planning area that if you don’t have rapid transport, rapid public transport, then you will never solve Sydney’s problems and that the rapid public transport has to go in first before you create green field sites and then wait for the transport to happen later so we will see how that happens but otherwise it was an enjoyable session.

 

2.       Renewfest, Mullumbimby Showground

 

Councillor Woods advised Council:

 

I just want to mention, Cr Dey may remember the name of the event that is going to be held at Mullumbimby Showground on 18th to do with renewable energy. Renewfest, that’s it and I think there’s a poster on the stand in there and in my lunch break, I just signed off on the lease for the event to take place and I think it’s going to be very, very well attended and a very interesting event. So for those that are interested in renewable energy and all its associated benefits, I urge you to go to the showground and have a really good look at the good work that’s being done there and participate in the event.
