Question No. 1 Flood Response in Byron Shire

 

Angela Dunlop asked the following question:

 

I represent SGBCA and residents living in the north of the shire who experienced the flood event of March. As a demonstration of council’s duty of care why, after two months, have you not provided the opportunity for flood affected residents of South Golden Beach, New Brighton and ocean shores to provide feedback to council of their experiences so that council could collate and review flood data in order to improve on their strategies before, during and after a flood event. Surely those who experienced the flood first hand were in a position to provide constructive recommendations that should have been welcomed by council yet this opportunity has not been granted. Additionally, we wish to know what, if any, risk management strategies or emergency evacuation procedures council has in place, when they were drafted and when they are due for review?

 

The Director Infrastructure Services took the question on notice.

 

Question No. 2 Sewerage

Fast Bucks asked the following question:

 

Management comments to Council reports must not contain formatted responses. With regards to item 9.3 on the Bangalow Men’s Shed, whilst not headed as the recommendation, the report notes that staff do not support the Notice of Motion. Is this a case of the General Manager ignoring Council Resolution 11-979, given that staff do not support the Notice of Motion, and is it also a case of the General Manager interfering in debate in areas which are outside his statutory brief?

 

The General Manager provided the following response, “No”.

Delegates' Reports

1. Australian Coastal Council’s Conference, Recliffe, QLD, 3-5 May 2017

 

Cr Hackett advised Council:

 

Cate and I went up to the Australian Coastal Conference up at Redcliff last month and found it extremely informative and came back quite excited about all these papers that we had heard which are now online, so we are hoping that we will be able to share them with the entire Council and other interested parties, particularly as they address constant coastal issues that we have in Byron Bay. Cate will probably talk about some different things to me but we went around and saw a lot of things that they had been doing on the Queensland coast there North of Brisbane for a long time. Some of their land is actually below sea level where they are building, so they have great concerns about sea levels rising, so they have been for years building sea walls and replenishing sand pumping. Because they have been doing this for so long, dealing with these coastal issues for so long, they are all the costing of what has been happening and then so you have got the cost of going this way and the cost of going that way and then issues that came up when they did one thing, when they did another thing, and therefore the on going costs that were incurred when they went down that road and sometimes they decided they would like to back track, ect. It was very good to get all the financial detail from people who are much further along the line at trying to control the coast than we are down here. There was even a fellow from Coffs Harbour who has done his PHD from South Australia in cost effective planned retreat and he has a lot of examples from the USA about how planned retreat doesn’t have to break the bank and that it can be done in certain ways that can be quite cost effective. The particular sand pumping up on Bribie Island, we met Councillors from the Shoalhaven that were saying this is all our sand from the Shoalhaven up here and how the sand there is moving South, where as our sand is moving North, but the sand on the Ocean side of Bribie Island is moving South so the whole Island is moving South and so because they are built in the middle of the island they are concerned that eventually there buildings will be on the sea. Because the island is moving South around them they are pumping sand from one end to the other all the time and what they are finding is that, and they have costing for all of that, but what they find is that the sand is moving South four times faster once they pump it to the North. It heads South three or four times faster then it does naturally, so they are chasing their tail a lot of the time. Anyway, we would like to bring a lot of this information - well I certainly would - to the rest of the Councillors and see if we can get up a few workshops and look at these because they were also dealing with the interface and estuaries and the ocean and things they have done to address that and problems they have run into, ect. A lot of things they are experiencing are what we will have to deal with in the future and I think we can learn from these workshops.

 

Cr Coorey advised Council:

 

It was a really interesting conference. I suppose most of you have been to Coastal Council conferences before. There were a few things that were very interesting there and that I think some of you might be already aware of the national climate adaptation facility and they actually developed a program called Coastidate with shows the implication of erosion of sea level rise, ect. I think that this kind of forward planning is really essential and these tools are really useful to have and I would like to see us really taking into account a lot of this stuff. When we are looking at it one of the things Jan mentioned going to Bribie Island and seeing sand pumping and other things the problem is that we are fortunate, far more fortunate than Queensland and Southern Queensland, that the level of development is relatively small compared to what they are doing and they are paying a lot of money and there are a lot of costs to property as a result of this and was impropriety thorough or properly ill considered close to the shore lines. We are at least a step ahead of that and I think we have an opportunity to be on the front foot of a lot of that and also to use a lot of the technology that some of you saw that the gentleman from Telstra that came and showed how we could actually identify how many people were actually in our Shire at any good given time and do some planning around that. There was some talk about Air BnB - the woman that spoke of that was from the University of Sydney, in urban and regional planning, that did have very much an urban focus and I think there was some information to be taken away from that but I think for her part it was very much about Sydney and Melbourne. In all it was good and it was a good thing for us as new Councillors to consider a lot of that stuff as well and given our involvement and interest in the area.

 

2. Bangalow Men’s Shed

 

Cr Hunter advised Council:

 

The Mayor and I attended a meeting with the men’s shed over there as per the Notice of Motion, hence the reason for it being withdrawn, because we had achieved what the motion set out to achieve and that was attempt to find a resolution - an amicable resolution - with the men’s shed. As I say, Simon and I attended some weeks ago and we left it unresolved with them to accept an offer that was relevantly fair and equitable. They haven’t seen it that way and fully responded to our proposal or proposition, so we are still in advances. I'm satisfied that Council’s now done everything Council can do to resolve it. Now it’s a matter or waiting and seeing what happens at the next step. It disappoints me because I thought it was a no brainer to resolve but it is not turning out to be as simple as first thought.

 

Cr Richardson advised Council:

 

We have tried to give everyone some really reasonable ways forward, which we thought may be begrudgingly accepted, and woke up the next morning and it seemed to be rejected. We will see what happens from here.

Questions With Notice

 

Question With Notice No. 15.1     Tyagarah Airfield

File No:                                           I2017/502

 

 

At Council’s Ordinary Meeting held on 20 April 2017, Matthew O’Reilly asked the following question which was taken on notice:

 

Why is Council conducting environmental assessment for the three stages of vegetation removal at Tyagarah Airfield separately rather than in their entirety and why is the council not allowing public comment or oversight on these operations and the review of environmental factors that were prepared and why has council failed to obtain Development Applications for this vegetation removal despite councils own legal advice telling them a DA is required?

 

Response Manager Open Spaces and Resource Recovery, Michael Matthews:

Ecological Assessments have been separately prepared for both Stage 1 and Stage 2 works, and concluded that no significant adverse effect is likely for flora or fauna. 

The works are operational maintenance of an existing Obstacle Limitation Surface (the safe envelope for aircraft landing and take-off) for the runway.

Works for Stage 1 and 2 are permissible without consent under Part 3, Division 1 (Air Transport Facilities), Clause 22 of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Infrastructure) 2007 (SEPP Infrastructure) which was the mechanism used for Stage 1 treatment within the RU2 zone.

As the airfield is operational, a staged approach was chosen for the reasons of:

·    careful consideration of environmental factors

·    mixed land tenure and zone where encroachment occurs

·    to assess the level of success of the treatment methodologies for stage 1

·    Stage 1 vegetation treated was considered as less significant and was considered to present a greater risk to aircraft due to its proximity to take off and landing and airside envelopes

·    Owner’s Consent requirements where vegetation is located on other’s land

·    due diligence in progressively removing vegetation that has encroached the Operational Obstacle Limitation Surface

 

Council has reviewed legal advices it holds and is of the view that no Development Consent was necessary for operational maintenance of vegetation of the Obstacle Limitation Surface (OLS) for all works undertaken to date.

 

Planning mechanism used to facilitate continual maintenance of vegetation encroachments is assessed and applied specific to the situation, such as ownership, existing SEPPS and the like.
