1    Section 443 (1) of the Local Government Act 1993 provides that you may have a pecuniary interest in a matter because of the pecuniary interest of your spouse or your de facto partner or your relative 4 or because your business partner or employer has a pecuniary interest. You may also have a pecuniary interest in a matter because you, your nominee, your business partner or your employer is a member of a company or other body that has a pecuniary interest in the matter.

      Section 442 of the Local Government Act 1993 provides that a "pecuniary interest" is an interest that a person has in a matter because of a reasonable likelihood or expectation of appreciable financial gain or loss to the person. A person does not have a pecuniary interest in a matter if the interest is so remote or insignificant that it could not reasonably be regarded as likely to influence any decision the person might make in relation to the matter or if the interest is of a kind specified in section 448 of that Act (for example, an interest as an elector or as a ratepayer or person liable to pay a charge).

2    A pecuniary interest may arise by way of a change of permissible use of land adjoining, adjacent to or in proximity to land in which a councillor or a person, company or body referred to in section 443 (1) (b) or (c) of the Local Government Act 1993 has a proprietary interest-see section 448 (g) (ii) of the Local Government Act 1993 .

Report No. 6.2             Coorabell Public School Bus Route - Request for Upgrade and Maintenance at Three Bus Stops at Federal, Ewingsdale and Mullumbimby

File No:                        I2016/506

 

Coorabell Public School, P&C has requested the LTC to review the proposal by Coorabell Public School for additional signage, road works and line markings at three bus stops on school bus routes.

 

Background

Coorabell Public School bus uses Byron Shire Council maintained bus stops between Bangalow and Federal.  Coorabell Public School bus carries approximately 30 students on the Bangalow route and 60 students on the Federal route, with ages between 5 and 11 years.  The bus time tables are between 07:50 – 09:03 and 15:00 – 16:10.  Each bus stop has to have ‘Kiss and ride’ facilities to allow parents vehicles to deliver and collect their children

 

The main concern is safety of students and public liability with using Byron Shire Council maintained bus stops to access the Coorabell Public School Buses.

 

Meeting request

Alan Mitchell has requested a pre-works meeting involving representatives of Byron Shire Council, Coorabell Public School and the Bus Service to meet at these sites to discuss and refine the points at issue.

Report No. 6.4             Request for No Stopping - Rural Fire Service Station, Gordon St, Mullumbimby

File No:                        I2016/509

 

The Mullumbimby Rural Fire Brigade has suffered from continuous parking issues in Gordon Street, Mullumbimby particularly during festivals and now more often with the number of increased businesses in Gordon Street.

 

Police do not have the ability to clear the driveway as there are no designated parking signs.

 

So therefore the emergency service’s quick response is greatly reduced as members cannot park three vehicles near the station and get fire appliances out of storage.

 

To resolve this issue we recommend a 15m wide ‘No Parking’ and ‘Authorised vehicles only’ zone covering the driveway to the Rural Fire Service Station.

 

Committee Comments

Noted bollards behind the signage to prevent parking behind the signs could be investigated

 

Management Comments

No Management comments

 

RECOMMENDATION:

1.    That ‘No Parking – Authorised Vehicles Excepted’ be signed on Gordon Street, Mullumbimby, commencing from 0 m to 15 m covering the Mullumbimby Rural Fire Service (RFS) Station driveway 

 

2.    That RFS Mullumbimby be advised that RFS-authorised vehicles must be identified by displaying their standard RFS permit on the dashboard of approved vehicles and that vehicles which do not display the RFS permit will be subject to enforcement

Report No. 6.7             Review of Signage Location and Enforcement - Magic Bus

File No:                        I2016/512

 

 

ISSUE:

 

Concerns raised by NSW Police pertaining to the erection of bus stop signs in two locations in Byron Bay.

 

BACKGROUND:

 

Council at its meeting on 6 December 2012 made the following resolution:

 

Res 12-965:

  

1.   That Council support the erection of generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop signage in Byron Bay.

  

2.   That Council determine option A (with rounded corners) as presented in Councillor’s Background Notes as the design and type of signage to be used, though with time limits removed.

  

3.   That all costs associated with the manufacture, supply, erection and ongoing maintenance of the approved signs be met by the proponent, the Magic Bus proprietor.

  

4.   That Council, as the Roads Authority, maintains the right to remove, relocate or replace the signage as and when required, for example on the grounds of safety or regulatory or policy requirements, and that any costs incurred be met by the Magic Bus operators.

  

5.   That the sign locations be available for use by other operators.   

 

COMMENT:

On Monday 18th one of Council’s Parking Enforcement Officers attended two sites of interest in the company of a Senior Constable of the NSW Police (Highway Patrol).  Both of these sites were identified by NSW Police as concerning as the erection of generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop signage had occurred.

 

ISSUE ONE: Bay Street, Byron Bay

Opposite the Beach Hotel is a sign post that contains a No Stopping & Loading Zone. Additional signage includes generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop information.

 

The concern raised by NSW Police was that the signage conflicts with the No Stopping & Loading Zone signage.

 

In addition to this there is a current designated Bus Zone in place situated a further 200 metres south along Bay Street outside of the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club. It has been suggested by NSW Police that the generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop signage be relocated to the designated Bus Stop situated outside of the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club.


SOLUTION ONE:

Relocate all generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop signage from the Bay Street post (Purple Circle) and relocate to the Bus Zone (Red Circle) a further 200 metres south along Bay Street outside of the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ISSUE TWO: Lighthouse Road and Tallow Beach Road Intersection

There is currently a designated Bus Zone sign post near the intersection that also contains generic tour, sightseeing and shuttle bus stop signage.

 

The concern raised by NSW Police with this site is the signage needs to be mounted on or next to a neighbouring electricity pole. Currently there is a small area available for a small vehicle to park between the signage and a private residential

driveway which possess a visual obstruction to any vehicles attempting to exit the private driveway on to Lighthouse Road


 

SOLUTION TWO

Lighthouse Road Bus Signage be relocated from the blue circle (current location) to the green circle (near the power pole.

That the bus zone on Lighthouse Road near the intersection of Tallow Beach Road (as pictured in the Agenda) be extended and signage moved a few metres westward to finish as close as possible to the power pole near the driveway.
