Local Traffic Committee Meeting 7.2
File No: I2018/908
The redevelopment of the Woolworths site in Byron Bay was reported to the LTC on 14 October 2016 with the committee making the following comments and recommendation:
The Committee have taken into consideration the information presented by James Vallis from Azzura and provides the following comments:
· Appropriate consideration needs to be given to the interaction between the public and the construction site during the construction period, seven days a week and 24 hours a day:
o An appropriate Traffic Management Plan be prepared and submitted that allows for safe and efficient movements relevant to the development and the public amenity present.
o There needs to be a clear demarcation between the construction site and the Woolworths site for operations and access by the public.
o The driveway to Woolworths for access to the temporary rear car park of the store needs to be two-way traffic at all times.
· That appropriate public consultation be undertaken to minimise the negative effect of the development during construction.
· That any use of Butler Street by the developer not be supported.
· That planning be undertaken by the developer to minimise the conflict with traffic within the Byron Bay town centre during operations of Markets at the Butler Street site.
· It is noted that the Committee suggested to the developer that they investigate alternative options using the rail corridor for the removal of the spoil from site to minimise the impacts on the road network.
There were no Management comments.
That the Committee comments be provided to the Planning team.
The recommendation was put to the vote and declared carried.
Council resolution 16-610 of 17 November 2016 Resolved that Council adopt the following Committee Recommendation:
Report No. 6.14 11.2013.587.2 - Mercato on Byron - 108-110 Jonson Street, Byron Bay
File No: I2016/991
That the Committee comments be provided to the Planning team. (Hunter/Richardson)
The motion was put to the vote and declared carried.
Council has now received a request from Mercato to review the restriction placed on the use of Butler Street and approve a modified Traffic Management Plan (S2018/3965 Attached)
The application highlights the traffic and road network impact improvements by being able to use Butler St for concrete deliveries in lieu of the current approved plan requiring delivery via Hinterland Way and Bangalow Road from the Ewingsdale Road concrete batching plant, a route being 60% greater in length than the more direct route of Ewingsdale Road and Butler St.
The application also details that by utilising this shorter route, the number of days that concrete trucks will be accessing the road network will be reduced from 39 to 28 noting that no delivers will be scheduled on days that clash with market days on Butler St Reserve.
A key issue of consideration for the LTC in providing their original comments was the then immanent construction of the Byron Bay Bypass which would have the potential to conflict with the road corridor use by the Mercato development. The delayed commencement of the bypass construction now provides an opportunity to use Butler Street as requested and improve traffic management in Jonson St as it is likely the Mercato works will be completed well before the construction of the bypass commences.
Taking the above matters into consideration, Council staff are supportive of the application to modify the Traffic Management Plan to facilitate concrete deliveries to the development.
LTC members support for the use of Butler St as outlined in the application and the proposed recommendation is sought.
That Council support the use of Butler St for construction access for concrete deliveries until the re-development works are completed or Council commences the construction of the Byron Bay Bypass, which occurs earliest.
