Public Access

 

Prior to dealing with the circulated reports and associated information, a Public Access Session was held and Council was addressed on the following:

 

9.2 Proposed Department of Planning approval of North Byron Parklands Cultural Events Site

 

Denise Nessel addressed Council in favour of the recommendation.

John Anderson addressed Council against the recommendation.

 

10.1     Clothes Optional Tyagarah Beach

Submission No. 1 - Nature Recovery Proposal

 

Veda Turner on behalf of Byron Environment Alliance made a submission to Council regarding a nature recovery proposal.

 

Submission No. 2 - Correct Record of Legal Proceedings

 

Paul Jones on behalf of Butler Street Community Network made a submission to Council regarding the correct record of legal proceedings.

 

Submission No. 3 - Transparency

 

John Anderson made a submission to Council regarding transparency.

 

Question. 1

 

John Anderson asked the following question:

 

Given that in my experience extracting information from Council under F.O.I regarding bio-banking arrangements for the Butler Street bypass has been like trying to remove impacted wisdom teeth, and given that Council has already spent well over ½ million dollars in legal costs on this project, is Ralph James, Council’s Legal Council, prepared to put his professional reputation on the line and to demonstrate his bona fides by:

1.    Immediately making available to me or the Butler Street objectors all documents relating to the fulfilment of consent conditions as orally reported by senior staff.

2.    Declare on the record that all consent conditions have been met beyond any prospect of reasonable legal challenge, or that they will be met prior to the commencement of work?

 

Council’s Legal Counsel, Ralph James, provided the following response:

 

Part 1 - The Butler Street Community Network has been in possession of all documents relevant to the granting of Development Consent for almost 18 months. This includes bio-banking documents.

 

The network attended the LEC hearing. It heard the evidence and cross examined witnesses, including Council’s bio-banking expert.It was made fully aware of Council’s case. It was also made aware, at the hearing, of Council’s suggested consent conditions.

 

Any additional requests for documents must be made pursuant to the provisions of the Government Information (Public Access) Act.

 

Part 2 - Council has the benefit of a lawful development consent. Council, like any other beneficiary of a development consent, is legally obliged to comply with consent conditions as granted or subsequently lawfully varied.

 

Question. 2

 

Paul Jones asked the following question:

 

The proposed bus transit station is now being located and designed on the rail corridor in the approximate location our community organisation identified and lobbied for. We are immediate neighbours to the proposal and have made formal requests to the Council and Transport NSW to be consulted on the design development. We have now received the plans shown here without any notice or involvement. Contrary to our proposal on the rail corridor this plan implies serious impacts on our neighbourhood, including noise, air pollution, vibration and light pollution not to mention heritage impacts. The heritage water tower is almost circled, and you can see the heritage water tower there. The heritage water tower is almost circled by buses right adjacent to it, potential for a park like setting for this landmark is ruined and the proximity of buses circling will cause vibration impacts and render the area inhospitable. Buses will circle at a 1m raised embankment opposite residential homes; this will greatly exacerbate noise and pollution. Due to the proximity and limited opportunity vegetation screen will have little effect. Obviously our community also wants the bypass on the rail corridor but this should not rule out our involvement for potential for flexible design solution. Butler Street Community Network has asked a question of Council, how can we be engaged in this process?

 

Cr Ndiaye left the Chamber.

 

 

Motion of Condolence

 

18-778

Resolved that Council extend condolences to the family of Judy McDonald and acknowledge the extensive contribution that Judy made to our community through her drive and commitment to establish the Mullumbimby Farmers Markets, her roles with Brunswick Valley Landcare, her leadership of the Main Arm Residents Association and her substantial advocacy on rural living and food security.                                                                                                   (Cameron/Richardson)

 

The motion was put to the vote and declared carried.

Cr Ndiaye was not present for the vote

 

The meeting adjourned at 10:15am and reconvened at 10:36am.

 

 

Apologies

 

There were no apologies.

 

 

Requests for Leave of Absence

 

There were no requests for leave of absence.

 

 

Declarations of Interest – Pecuniary and Non-Pecuniary

 

Cr Spooner declared a pecuniary interest in Report 9.2 – North Byron Parklands Cultural Event Site. The nature of the interest being that his employer, Byron Bay Community Association has received a donation from the Falls Festival for Soul Street and First Sun events for the past 5 years. Cr Spooner elected to leave the Chamber and will not participate in discussion and the vote.

 

Cr Ndiaye declared a pecuniary interest in Report 14.4 – Local Traffic Committee Events – Byron Bluesfest. The nature of the interest being that she works onsite in the photography management at Bluesfest but I am not in anyway impacted by the traffic plan.
