Petitions

A petition with 225 signatures has been received from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area. In addition, a related petition with 49 signatures has been received from children and young people in the Heidelberg Heights area. The petition prayer from residents in the Heidelberg Heights area is as follows: Banyule City Council is placing 32,000 square metres up for tender for development for medium density housing at the Haig Street Primary School site. There are currently no plans for retention of open space by the council, nor considerations for increased traffic in the surrounding roads. The project funds the Bellfield basketball refurbishment at the expense of the Heidelberg Heights neighborhood. We therefore request Banyule Council to: 1. Include a replacement park as part of any redevelopment of the Haig St Primary School site. Any open space minimum requirements should be provided in the form of land rather than dollars. We believe that out of a 32,000 square meter site, 3,000 square meters is a reasonable request for open space and that the park should be accessible from both Haig and Bonar Streets. 2. That the surrounding blocks receive an upgrade to traffic controls such as speed bumps and curves to keep our streets safe, particularly for children. A majority of signatories are from Heidelberg Heights in the local neighborhood area of the former Haig Street Primary School site. Other signatories are from: Heidelberg West, Heidelberg, Watsonia North, Yallambie, Rosanna, Ivanhoe, Briar Hill and Greensborough. 14 of the signatories are from outside the municipality from areas including: Reservoir, Northcote, Lilydale, Preston, South Morang and Coburg. Attached to this petition was a related petition from children and young people in the Heidelberg Heights area. The petition prayer is as follows: We the children and young people of Heidelberg Heights and surrounding areas would like a park in the old Haig Street Primary School because: 1. We can play on the equipment 2. We can play with our friends at the park 3. We can ride our bikes at the park 4. Walk the dog 5. Climb the trees 6. Might find some treasures there!

Some signatories are from Heidelberg West and the 3081 postcode area. The petition was first considered at the Council Meeting of 18 November 2013 where it was resolved as follows: That the item be deferred to a future Council meeting for further consideration. (Refer Council Meeting Resolution CO2013/1) This report enables the petition to be considered and includes additional information on the open space issue. OFFICER COMMENT A location plan of the subject site is provided in Figure 1 below.

Council has been aware of the sale of the three former school sites from the Minister for Education to Banyule Council which took place on the 15 August 2013. Council finalised settlement of the sites on 11 November 2013 and is currently undertaking an Expression of Interest process for the redevelopment of the former Haig Street Primary school site. This petition received by Council on the 11 November 2013 relates to the former Haig Street Primary School site and Council’s proposal to develop the site for residential purposes.

The decision to purchase the school sites was primarily to gain ownership of important community infrastructure including the Basketball stadium located on the former Banksia La Trobe Secondary College site. If Council had not purchased the school sites, valuable community infrastructure would arguably have been lost to commercial interests. Council has sought to inform the community of the proposed development on the former Haig Street Primary School site through a letter drop in August 2013 and two community information sessions that were conducted in October 2013. Council has also placed information on its website to ensure information is readily available to the community. Community information sessions were held on the evening of 8 October (Council chambers) and an afternoon session on the 10 October (Heidelberg Community Health Centre). These sessions were generally well received by local residents with each session conducted over a 2 hour period where residents were invited to ‘drop-in’ for an informal discussion with officers and councillors. In total, approximately 52 residents attended both sessions. In addition to the community information sessions, letter drops and website updates, Council has provided information on the acquisition and redevelopment of the school sites through multiple channels including web based media releases and publications such as City Plan 2013–2017 and the Banyule Banner. A detailed summary of public information including local media coverage is included in Attachment 2. Since receiving the petition, a meeting was held in Haig Street with local residents on Sunday 1 December. The meeting was attended by Cr Craig Langdon, Cr Steven Briffa, Cr Tom Melican and approximately 40 residents from the local area. Cr Langdon circulated an open space proposal to residents which utilises the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension together with some adjoining developable land. The potential for a total open space area of 2400m² was discussed at the meeting with the majority of residents indicating their support for the proposal. Key Issues The petition reflects two of the main issues raised at the community information sessions. The first being the absence of any public open space in the proposed development that would replace the school sports field that was lost with the closure of the school. Secondly, the petition raises the issue of upgrading traffic controls in adjacent and nearby streets. These issues are addressed below. Availability of Open Space Council’s Public Open Space Strategy (2007-2012) confirms that the suburb of Heidelberg Heights meets the standard quantitative benchmark of 1 hectare of public open space per 1000 people. There is more than 7 hectares of public open space in Heidelberg Heights serving a population of approximately six and a half thousand people. This is without taking into consideration the additional public open space provided at Malahang Reserve which is located close to the former school site but located in the adjoining suburb of Heidelberg West. In determining planning outcomes for the former school site, consideration has been given to access to existing open space. Local public open space generally attracts most

of its users from a radius of approximately 500 metres or less; i.e. walking distance for children and families. The former school site has good access to three open space recreational reserves, all within 400-500m (5-10 minute walk). These are described below: 1.

Malahang Reserve – Located on Southern Road, Heidelberg West, approximately 400m from the site. This is the largest of the nearby parks and comprises a regional playground facility, skate/BMX park and picnic facilities. Future proposed upgrades to the park include an off-lead dog exercise park. This is an important regional park for the Heidelberg West area which is the key focus for open space enhancement in the future.

2.

Shelley Reserve – Located on Outhwaite Road, Heidelberg Heights, approximately 400m from the site. This reserve provides for cricket and football activities and is home to the North Heidelberg Football Team. The sporting field is open to the public outside of the formal football club event days. The reserve also includes a children’s playground.

3.

James Reserve – Located on St Hellier Street Heidelberg Heights, approximately 500m from the site. This is the smallest of the nearby reserves and comprises a soccer field, children’s playground and basketball hoop. A significant proportion of the land available for recreation in Heidelberg Heights is for sporting purposes, specifically Shelley Park and James Reserve. Malahang Reserve is primarily for passive recreational use and therefore there is a reasonable balance between access to passive and active recreational activity.

Figure 2 – Open Space Areas within 400-500m walking distance.

In addition, Council plans to upgrade the basketball stadium located on the former Banksia La Trobe Secondary College site, located in Banksia Street Bellfield. A concept proposal has been prepared and includes retention of the two existing indoor sports courts and two additional courts to be integrated with the existing facility. The

The funding required for the refurbishment of the existing basketball stadium buildings will come from the revenue resulting from the future sale of the school sites, government funding and community contributions. Council officers are continuing to investigate both federal and state government funding/grant opportunities that will be required to offset the balance of building construction cost, car parking and landscaping costs. A concept plan for the proposed basketball/netball stadium is shown at Attachment 1. Viability of Public Open Space The petition requests that Council provides 3,000m² of public open space at the former school site. This area is significantly less than the recommended minimum size for public open space outlined in Council’s Public Open Space Strategy which requires a minimum 7,500m². The Public Open Space Strategy also outlines the difficulty in maintaining smaller open space areas and difficulty in sustaining a range of activities on them. The Strategy encourages open spaces that are of sufficient size to facilitate a diversity of activities to meet the needs of different ages and life cycle stages. Smaller public open spaces which are limited in diversity or single purpose sites are, discouraged. The Strategy states that fewer larger parcels of public open space are preferable to multiple smaller parcels. Cost of Open Space Further, allocation of open space on the former school site is unlikely to be cost effective and will potentially diminish the financial return to Council to enable the available expenditure for open space and recreational activities in the area in the future, including the reconstructed basketball stadium and enhancements of Malahang Reserve. In addition to the possible negative financial impact, the cost of landscape construction and ongoing park management and maintenance costs also need to be considered. The only cost neutral alternative for open space is to utilise the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension (1459m²) although the quantity of open space is considered insufficient for the creation of a well designed open space area. Traffic Management/Controls Council will consider a range of traffic management options in relation to any new proposal for development. Site-specific conditions will be considered in Haig, Law, Bonar and Elliott Streets where these streets adjoin the site. Council will undertake an assessment of existing traffic conditions in early 2014 and this will include traffic counts on adjoining streets. Recommendations for traffic management if necessary and in particular, the types of traffic calming devices and their locations will be established as soon as further details of the proposed development are known. Nonetheless, an initial review by Council’s Transport

courts will be used for active recreation activities including basketball and netball. A multi-purpose room is also proposed as part of this regional facility.


Petitions

REDEVELOPMENT OF THE FORMER HAIG STREET PRIMARY SCHOOL SITE IN THE OLYMPIA WARD cont’d section indicates that the surrounding streets are sufficient to cater for the likely additional traffic generated by the development.

1.1

It is expected that a traffic report will be completed during 2014. Open Space Option At the meeting with residents on Sunday 1 December 2013, councillors circulated an open space proposal showing a linear open space of 2400m² connecting Bonar with Haig Street (Refer Public Open Space Sketch Design - Attachment 1). The proposal, which is indicative at this stage, includes a connecting path system, retention of existing trees within the open space area as well as new tree planting. The location of the proposed open space is central to the redevelopment site and would provide future and existing residents with an accessible and well-connected open space area. While the total land area of 2400m² is less than the minimum land area required for a park and less than the 3000m² being sought by the petition, the area is considered large enough to support future activities such as informal recreation or a range of other uses that could be designed in consultation with the community.

CONCLUSION In considering the request for public open space, officers have assessed the availability of existing open space, the non-viability of a small park being located at the school site and the likely negative financial impact on the project feasibility. When taking into account these issues and the primary project objective of raising sufficient funds to refurbish the Basketball stadium, there is insufficient reason to support the proposal for 3000m² of land to be set aside for public open space on the Haig Street site. However, an option has been identified which minimises financial impact to the project. The proposal utilises the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension (1459m²) and an adjoining area of developable land (941m²) providing a total open space area of 2400m². Traffic assessments and associated reports will be progressed with the planning for the site. RECOMMENDATION That: 1.

Council receives and notes the petition.

2.

Council confirms its commitment to provide for regional recreational facilities including a new basketball/netball facility at the former Banksia Secondary School site.

3.

Council considers the open space proposal attached to this report on the basis that the cost impact is minimised by utilising the land set aside for the Elliott Street extension (1459m²) and an adjoining area of developable land (941m²)

AUDIT REPORT OF SPORTING CLUBS USE OF SPORTING GROUNDS AND FACILITIES

Author:

Ben McManus - Leisure Services Team Leader, Community Programs

BS36/045/002

SUMMARY This report presents the findings from the sports ground and facilities audit conducted by officers during the 2013 winter season. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction of “promote and support health and wellbeing”. BACKGROUND This report follows a Notice of Motion raised at the Council Meeting of 8 April 2013, requesting an audit of the use of active reserves and facilities in the Hawdon Ward, to ensure that grounds were being utilised as per approved allocations. Each year officers administer the Sporting Reserve & Facilities Seasonal Allocations process for both the summer season (1 October-31 March) and the winter season (1 April to 30 September). The allocation process involves sporting club applying for the use of Council Sporting Facilities (grounds and pavilions) as per the Sporting Reserve User Guide and Allocation Policy. The process involves each Club indicating which ground and pavilion they would like to use and for what purpose e.g., type of sport, women’s, men’s, girls and boys and what teams (U 10’s). In the Northern area of the municipality (mainly Greensborough & Montmorency located in the Hawdon Ward), there has been club growth and an increase in the number of teams fielded. This growth has seen an increase in the number of different club requests for the same grounds and times of use, causing a conflict in user demands. This has been an ongoing issue for many years and in the past there has been a suggestion that clubs may have used grounds outside of their approved allocation. Officers spend a significant amount of time liaising and negotiating with clubs to provide the best outcome for all involved. Officers need to balance the desire of the clubs, ensure the best use of Council facilities and ensure the facilities are used to their capacity without over using the grounds which may compromise their condition.

AUDIT REPORT OF SPORTING CLUBS USE OF SPORTING GROUNDS AND FACILITIES cont’d

2.1

The main issues have been around the allocation of the Montmorency North and South ovals, Simms Road oval, Whatmough Park, Greensborough Park, Petrie Park and Poulter Reserve. Clubs have reported that other clubs who have successfully applied for the facilities via the Sporting Reserve User Guide and Allocation Policy have not been using the grounds within their allocated times, leaving them vacant and available for other use. CURRENT SITUATION  Following the Notice of Motion officers conducted fifty (50) random checks of sporting ovals, parks and reserves during the winter season.  Officers mainly focused on the problems areas of Montmorency North and South ovals, Simms Rd oval, Whatmough Park and Greensborough Park to ensure that training was being conducted as per the seasonal training allocation requested by each club.  Officers found that clubs were adhering to the allocated training times.  There were a couple of exceptions due to the clubs attempting to reduce wear and tear on the ground which officers applaud.  With the commencement of junior finals in July/August there was also naturally a reduction in the amount of teams training on particular nights. POLICY IMPLICATIONS The Recreation Plan 2013 – 2017 includes a recommendation to review the Sporting Reserve User Guide and Allocation Policy 2011-2014 in 2015. Officers will continue to note any issues with the current allocation process up until the time of the review and undertake comprehensive benchmarking with other Councils to ensure Banyule has a ‘best practice’ approach to sporting facility and reserve allocation. CONCLUSION Officers found that the overwhelming majority of inspections revealed sporting clubs were fulfilling their allocations time slots as requested through the 2013 winter ground and pavilion allocation process.

RECOMMENDATION That Council consider the above information and note the results of the ground audit. ATTACHMENTS Nil

Planet – Environmental Sustainability

SUMMARY For Council to consider the 2012-2013 State of the Environment Report. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “act as environmental stewards”. BACKGROUND The State of the Environment (SOE) Report informs both Council and the community on how Council is tracking with our Planet (Environmental Sustainability) objective, key directions and strategic indicators. The report encompasses biodiversity, water, waste, greenhouse emissions reduction targets, and environmental stewardship initiatives for each financial year. These areas help define five key directions around which data is collected to track Council’s progress (outlined in Table 1 below). The Banyule Environment Advisory Committee (BEAC) assists with the review of the SOE as part of its Terms of Reference. This year’s report is in a snapshot format that reports directly on Council’s work in the five key directions. In previous years community/friends groups work was also extensively reported on, much of which has been undertaken in partnership with Council. However, as these groups also publish their own regular newsletters, and the SOE cannot cover every Friends Group activity across the year, BEAC members suggested this more accessible version.

State of the Environment Report – Highlights and Challenges 1. Protect and Enhance the Natural Environment Council continued to enjoy strong community support in this area in 2012-2013. Council’s bushland management unit along with community and friends groups planted over 11,000 plants. Council continues to support wildlife corridor plantings, a significant tree register, increasing vegetation cover in the municipality, protecting street trees and is working on the development of both an urban tree management plan and an urban forest plan. 2. Conserve Water and Improve Stormwater Quality Council’s annual water use has increased in 2012-2013 due to the opening of WaterMarc. With a rising price of water, the annual water bill has also increased to its highest level ever. Water conservation is an ongoing challenge for Council. This challenge will be addressed by implementing the Water Sustainability Plan that has been recently adopted by Council. Also the Stormwater harvesting project will be operational this summer which will reduce mains water use by about 138 million litres, worth about $300,000 in water value. This project will also improve surrounding wildlife habitat and prevent 200 tonnes of pollution per year reaching local waterways. 3. Deliver Action on Climate Change Council’s Greenhouse Action Strategy 2002 (GAS) reduction target is to reduce annual emissions from Council’s operations by 30% from 1996-1997 levels by 2010. Council has not reached this target. Council’s 2012 – 2013 emissions have increased markedly due to the opening of WaterMarc. This has caused an increase in greenhouse gas emissions for the first time since the 1996-1997 introduction of the GAS. Notwithstanding, if the GAS had not been implemented over the last decade, emissions would be about 15% higher.

STATE OF THE ENVIRONMENT REPORT 2012-2013 cont’d

While constraining energy use is an ongoing challenge, Council is responding by developing a new energy saving plan. Key elements of this plan were recently adopted by Council and will allow the active assessment of options for energy and emissions savings in each budget cycle. 4. Avoid Waste Generation A highlight of 2012-2013 was an overall lowering of total waste per household. This is a very positive result and reflects Council’s Avoid, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle message. Community satisfaction with Council’s waste services continues to be high. Also Council’s three service centres introduced recycling stations for placement of unwanted mobile phones, cameras and VHS tapes amongst other items. The challenge for the future is to increase the percentage of waste diverted from landfill from the current levels of around 53% to the Council’s 65% target. 5. Encourage Environmental Stewardship Council continues to provide a wide range of environmental awareness programs, workshops and sessions across many Council programs. These include the Sustainable Homes and Communities program, Waterwatch, Rethink and Outreach waste education programs among others. A highlight this year was the Wildlife Corridor Program which teaches community and school groups about biodiversity, and distributes “buy one get one free” indigenous plant vouchers. In 2012-2013 Council delivered this program to 2362 people across 30 events, and provided 4884 plants. The challenge ahead in this area is to engage with a greater diversity of community groups, including culturally and linguistically diverse groups, while continuing to provide the current high level of education to established school and community groups. Future Actions for Achieving our Planet Objective Key environmental projects over the next year cover the development of four individual plans that set clearer direction and priorities around Council’s key responsibilities and concerns:  Development of a Biodiversity Plan  Development of an Energy Saving Plan to replace the GAS and consideration of funding in the 2013/14 and 10 year new works and services budget to continue implementing energy efficiency measures  Development of a Waste Plan  Development of an Environmental Stewardship Plan

Place – Sustainable Amenity and Built Environment

Previous Items Council on 29 July 2013 (Item 8.1 - Request for Current Speed and Traffic Count - Carmichael Street, East Ivanhoe) SUMMARY At its meeting on 29 July 2013, Council raised a Notice of Motion requesting an investigation into the speed and volume of traffic along Carmichael Street, Ivanhoe East. A speed and volume survey completed in Carmichael Street in the week of 28 August 2013 to 3 September 2013 highlighted that the average daily traffic volume along the street was 2,040 vehicles per day, a 6% increase compared with volumes recorded in 2007. However, recorded vehicle speeds demonstrated the majority of vehicles travel well below the legal speed limit of 50km/h. Carmichael Street ranks low amongst the list of streets for future consideration for funding of traffic calming. Given the low traffic speeds recorded along the street, the installation of traffic calming devices to manage the speed of traffic travelling along Carmichael Street is not considered warranted at this time. However, considering the available road width and topography of Carmichael Street, road cushions are identified as the most suitable treatment for Carmichael Street if Council wishes to install traffic management measures. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “maintain and improve Banyule as a great place to live”. BACKGROUND At its meeting of 29 July 2013 Council considered a Notice of Motion in regard to traffic along Carmichael Street, Ivanhoe East. Council resolved: “That a report be presented to Council outlining:

CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS cont’d 1.

The current speed and volume of traffic using Carmichael Street, East Ivanhoe. The study should be conducted during the school term period; and

2.

Traffic management measures (and cost) to slow traffic in Carmichael Street, East Ivanhoe.

3.

That a speed trailer be in Carmichael Street on two occasions throughout the year.”

In relation to Point 3 above, a speed trailer was installed on Carmichael Street in September 2013 with a follow up installation scheduled for February 2014. This update report has been prepared with respect to Points 1 and 2 above. EXISTING CONDITIONS Carmichael Street is a local road running in a general north-south direction between Maltravers Road (a collector road) and Lower Heidelberg Road (an arterial road). The road provides a key link between the residential area to the north of Maltravers Road and Ivanhoe East Shopping Village, a Neighbourhood Activity Centre, to the south.

CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS cont’d

A speed and volume count was conducted in Carmichael Street over a one week period during the school term (28 August – 3 September 2013), . This was conducted south of King Street. The results of the traffic count are presented in Table 1, with a previous count conducted from (17 July – 23 July 2007) at a similar location.

*The 85th percentile speed is the speed at which 85 percent of vehicles are travelling at or below. The traffic count data indicated a slight overall increase in traffic volumes along Carmichael Street over the past 6 years, from 1,927 vehicles per day to 2,040 vehicles per day in 2013. This represents an overall increase of 6% during this time. Traffic volumes along Carmichael Street are slightly higher than expected for a road of ‘Local’ status within Council’s road hierarchy. In accordance with Council’s Road Management Plan, such roads can expect up to 2,000 vehicles per day. The 85th percentile speeds recorded along Carmichael Street have decreased over the past six years, from 49.8km/h in 2007 to 43.6km/h in 2013. These speeds are well below the legal speed limit. Further review of the traffic data has not highlighted any other ongoing speeding concerns during normal weekday peak periods, evenings or on weekends. Crash History A check of the VicRoads casualty crash database indicates that there has been one reported crash in Carmichael Street, in the five year period from January 2008 to December 2013. The crash involved a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle travelling along Carmichael Street, 20 meters north of Lower Heidelberg Road. Site Observations Inspections of Carmicheal Street highlighted a moderate level of on-street parking along the street, with slightly higher levels of parking occuring towards Lower Heidelberg Road. Vehicles were observed to be parked legally, with sufficient width available for through traffic. No obvious speed or vehicle congestion issues were noted at these times.

CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS cont’d

4.1

Consideration for Traffic Improvements For traffic calming devices to be effective at controlling the speed of traffic in a 50km/h zone, they should generally be spaced 80 to 120 metres apart. At this spacing, motorists generally travel at a more uniform speed and are less inclined to speed up and brake suddenly between treatments. Installing an isolated treatment will generally result in only a localised speed reduction near the treatment with little benefit to the remainder of the street. Considering the above and the approach sightlines from both directions, the appropriate locations for any installation of road safety devices in Carmichael Street are: -

30m north of York Avenue, in the vicinity of 21 Carmichael Street and 35m north of Beauview Parade, in the vicinity of 13 Carmichael Street.

The two identified locations above are shown in Figure 2 following.

Potential traffic calming locations

Figure 2 – Potential Traffic Calming Device Locations When considering the available road width and topography of Carmichael Street, road cushions (a speed hump that occupies only part of the width of the road) are identified as the most suitable device for the locations shown above. Speed humps and angled slow point treatments (a series of kerb extensions on alternating or opposite sides of the road) were both considered during the investigation. However, Australian Standards specify such treatments should not be located on roads with grades steeper than 5%. The southern section of Carmichael Street, between King Street and Lower Heidelberg Road experiences gradients of up to 10%. As such, speed humps and angled slow points are not considered to be suitable treatments for Carmichael Street. Bicycle lanes were also considered during the investigation, however there is insufficient width available to introduce a bicycle lane in each direction, and still provide two lanes for through traffic.

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS cont’d

Disadvantages of road cushions include the perception of increased traffic noise associated with the devices. Furthermore, traffic calming devices can lead to an increase in ‘hoon’ behaviour, with the devices often seen as a ‘challenge’ by these motorists. COST Initial cost estimates place the cost of the speed cushions in the order of $20,000. However, additional funding may be required to upgrade the street lighting in the vicinity of the treatments, should the installation of the road cushions proceed. DISCUSSION The Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Strategy provides opportunity for to consider funding in the budget process for the installation of traffic calming devices in roads throughout the municipality. The LATM Strategy recommends a system which assesses and prioritises roads on the need for traffic calming measures based on traffic speeds, traffic volumes and casualty accidents, as well as considering factors such as proximity to schools, shops, recreation facilities and playgrounds. This ensures that ranked sites get priority funding of traffic treatments where such funding is available. When assessed in accordance with the LATM Strategy, Carmichael Streets ranks as a low priority for funding consideration when ranked against competing locations. Furthermore, the recorded speed data indicates vehicle speeds remain well below the legal speed limit of 50km/h. In consideration of this data, the installation of traffic calming devices to slow traffic is not considered warranted at this time. It is noted that traffic volumes along Carmichael Street are slightly higher than expected for a road of ‘Local’ status within Council’s road hierarchy. However, Carmichael Street provides one of the few convenient north-south road connections from the Eaglemont area through to the East Ivanhoe Village Shopping Centre where many local residents would be expected to frequent. This lack of alternate and convenient north-south connection for local traffic movements to the shopping centre is expected to add to the overall traffic volumes on the street and as such is not considered unusual. Given the lack of convenient alternative connections the installation of traffic management devices is not anticipated to significantly impact traffic volumes or shift traffic to other streets CONCLUSION The investigation of Carmichael Street highlighted no concern with the speed of vehicles travelling along the street. In consideration of the available road width and the topography of the street, road cushions are considered to be the most appropriate traffic management treatment for Carmichael Street, should it be required.

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

4.1

Road cushions can be installed on roads with grades of up to 10% and are effective at reducing vehicle speeds. Such devices also cause less interference to larger vehicles, such as buses and emergency vehicles. Furthermore, no on-street parking spaces would be removed, as vehicles are able to park alongside the road cushions.

4.1

CARMICHAEL STREET, EAST IVANHOE - SPEED AND VOLUME CONCERNS cont’d However, Carmichael Street ranks low amongst the streets considered for future funding of traffic calming when assessing road safety risks. Furthermore, the recorded speed data indicates vehicles remain well below the legal speed limit of 50km/h. Accordingly, the installation of traffic calming devices to manage the speed of traffic travelling along Carmichael Street is not considered warranted at this time. RECOMMENDATION That: 1.

The installation of traffic calming devices is not considered warranted in Carmichael Street, Eaglemont, at this time.

2.

A further speed and volume count be conducted in Carmichael Street, Eaglemont, over the next 12 months to reassess this street.

Previous Items Council on 8 April 2013 (Item 4.1 - Improving Planning Controls For Substantial Trees in Banyule's Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhoods) Council on 29 July 2013 (Item 4.2 - Permanent controls for substantial trees in Banyule's Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhoods) SUMMARY To update on the work done for substantial trees, and to recommend adopting permanent changes to the Banyule Planning Scheme, then request the Minister for Planning to approve them for Planning Scheme. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “maintain and improve Banyule as a great place to live”. HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited, restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report. It is considered that the subject matter does not raise any human rights issues. BACKGROUND Schedule 5 to the Vegetation Protection Overlay (VPO5) is currently a temporary tree protection control in the Banyule Planning Scheme. It requires a planning permit application for the removal or lopping of substantial trees so that they can be protected where appropriate, and effectively considered when development is proposed.

PERMANENT PLANNING CONTROLS FOR SUBSTANTIAL TREES IN BANYULE'S GARDEN SUBURBAN AND GARDEN COURT NEIGHBOURHOODS cont’d The VPO5 applies to trees over 12 metres in height, or with a diameter of more than 40cm at 1.4m above the trunk base. It affects residentially zoned land in the Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhood Character Precincts west of the Plenty River. This includes parts of Bundoora, Greensborough, Watsonia, Watsonia North, Macleod, Yallambie, Viewbank, Rosanna, Heidelberg, Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg West, Bellfield and Ivanhoe, as shown in the map in Attachment 1. During May and June this year, Council exhibited Planning Scheme Amendment C80. This amendment will:  Make Schedule 5 to the Vegetation Protection Overlay (VPO5) a permanent part of the Banyule Planning Scheme, with some minor refinements.  List new Reference Documents, including the Strategy for “Substantial trees in Banyule’s Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhoods, 2013”.  Update the Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) to reflect the work done. At its meeting on 29 July 2013, Council received a report which gave an update on discussions with submitters to the amendment, and acknowledged that one unresolved submission was to be referred to a Planning Panel for consideration. It was also acknowledged that a short term extension to the temporary VPO5 should be requested to so that it does not expire while Amendment C80 progresses. EXTENSION TO THE TEMPORARY VPO5 The temporary VPO5 was incorporated into the Banyule Planning Scheme in November 2010 and was due to expire on 30 November 2013. Council requested a six month extension to the temporary VPO5 through Planning Scheme Amendment C97, so that it did not expire while the proposal for a permanent VPO5 progresses. The extension was approved by the State Government and made part of the Banyule Planning Scheme on 31 October 2013. The temporary VPO5 is now due to expire on 31 May 2014. AMENDMENT C80 On 29 July 2013 Council resolved to request the Minister for Planning’s appointment of a Planning Panel to consider the unresolved submission to Amendment C80. The Panel has since considered the proposal, and issued its report to Council on 12 November 2013. The report found that:  “Large trees make an important contribution to landscape values, the preferred neighbourhood character and ecological functions in Banyule; and  The permanent application of VPO5 would produce a net benefit to the community.” (Page i of the C80 Panel Report) The Panel supported Council’s submission and also gave recommendations for refinements to permit exemptions for personal safety where a tree is very close to or overhanging a building and for promoting good tree care by residents. The Panel also commended Council for its adoption efficient permit processes and the provision of appropriate expertise to resource the operation of the temporary VPO5.

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

A Planning Panel has supported Council’s C80 proposal for a permanent VPO5. This overlay, as well as the supporting document “Draft Strategy for Substantial Trees in Banyule’s Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhoods”, will recognise the importance of Substantial Trees in the Banyule Planning Scheme. It will also help promote tree care with local residents. Now that a favourable recommendation has been received from a Planning Panel, Council can consider adopting the final proposal shown in Attachment 3. If C80 is adopted, the next step to progress towards permanent tree controls is to request the Minister for Planning for final approval so it can be incorporated into the Banyule Planning Scheme before the temporary VPO5 expires. CONCLUSION The Planning Panel has considered Amendment C80 and supports a permanent VPO5 for the Banyule Planning Scheme. The Panel has also commended Council on its efficient permit processes and the provision of appropriate expertise to resource vegetation protection measures. Council can now adopt the permanent VPO5 and request the Minister for approval. This request can seek a timely outcome before 31 May 2014, which is when the temporary VPO5 is due to expire. RECOMMENDATION That Council: 1. Adopt Banyule Planning Scheme Amendment C80 shown in Attachment 3, including the “Strategy for Substantial Trees in Garden Court and Garden Suburban Neighbourhoods 2013”. 2. Request the Minister for Planning to approve amendment C80 which introduces permanent planning controls for substantial trees into the Banyule Planning Scheme. 3. Request the Minister for Planning to complete the process of gazetting Amendment C80 before the temporary Schedule 5 to the Vegetation Protection Overlay expires on 31 May 2014. ATTACHMENTS No.

Place – Sustainable Amenity and Built Environment

Previous Items Council on 7 October 2013 (Item 4.1 - North East Road Link Quarterly Update) SUMMARY To provide Council with a status update on planning for the proposed North East Road Link.

OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “support sustainable transport”. BACKGROUND Council considered an initial report on the status of the proposed North East Link and an overview of relevant Council resolutions and positions on the link, regional transport, and associated heritage and environmental issues at its meeting on 14 December 2009. Council resolved in part as follows: “4. That Council officers report to the Council every three months on the response from the Minister, VicRoads or other Government departments or agencies on progress in the planning of the North-East link.” In line with this resolution Council last considered a report on this matter in October 2013. In this meeting Council resolved that: “1. 2.

3. 4.

Council notes this report. Council write to Melbourne Linking Authority expressing its concern that there has been no response to an earlier request to meet for a briefing on the East West link. Writes to all local members and provide them with a copy of Council’s recently adopted “Prioritised Transport Project Advocacy List” Copies of the letters to be sent to the Ministers of Transport, Planning and Infrastructure.”

4.3

In response to this resolution, Council has written to the Linking Melbourne Authority, all local members and the Minister for Public Transport and Roads, and Minister for Planning and provided copies of Council’s advocacy stance. RECENT CORRESPONDENCE AND FEEDBACK The Linking Melbourne Authority provided a briefing to Council on 18 November 2013 on the East West Link. This was provided in response to Council’s earlier request. Council has also provided a submission to the Linking Melbourne Authority on the East West Link Project, acknowledging that the project will have minimal impacts to traffic congestion in Banyule but raising the following concerns: i. The degree to which the project may have detrimental funding implications on other important state transport projects, such as: a. The Melbourne Metro project; b. The Doncaster Rail project; and c. Incremental improvements to the Hurstbridge Rail Line, including duplication of the line between Rosanna and Heidelberg and from Greensborough to Eltham. ii. The extent to which this project has been considered in comparison with these other projects and may genuinely represent the best benefit for all of Melbourne. iii. The submission should also urge the State Government to provide a firm commitment, on the timeline and funding model for the delivery of these other projects. A meeting scheduled to be held with Matthew Guy, Minister for Planning on 13 September to discuss the North East Link amongst other matters, was delayed to 11 October 2013. At this meeting the current Banyule position on the North East Link was explained to the Minister. The Minister acknowledged the Council position and was advised that Council’s views would be included in its “Plan Melbourne” submission. At the 2 December Council meeting, a representative from the ‘Warringal Conservation Society’ presented to Councillors outlining the groups objections to the proposed route through Banyule Flats and Warringal Parklands. RECENT DEVELOPOMENTS WITH THE NORTH EAST LINK On 9 October 2013 the Victorian Government released its draft Strategy, Plan Melbourne. This draft has a 2050 vision for Melbourne as a ‘global city of opportunity and choice’ to ‘build the confidence, investment and employment vital for Victoria’s long-term future’. Key themes and outcomes in the draft Strategy are:     

An integrated approach across land-use, transport and community and social infrastructure Collaboration across government tiers, the private sector and the community will be required to deliver the strategy Job creation and security will be ‘at the forefront of planning decisions’ Increase certainty in the planning system by protecting suburbs and delivering intensified development in certain areas Setting aspirations for large scale infrastructure development to support city growth, sustainability and productivity

NORTH EAST ROAD LINK - QUARTERLY REPORT cont’d Identifying an emerging LaTrobe Cluster for northern Melbourne.

In terms of transport and more specifically the North East Road Link, Plan Melbourne lists as one of its initiatives: In the short term...consider options for a North East Link connecting the M80 Ring Road to the Eastern Freeway/Eastlink. In the long term…deliver the North East Link connecting the M80 Ring Road to the Eastern Freeway/Eastlink. Figure 1 shows the alignment of the proposed North East Link as shown in Plan Melbourne.

Figure 1: (Plan Melbourne, Map 12 (2013)) The draft strategy indicates that the State’s future investigations for the North East link would be through Banyule. In order to investigate the potential impacts of the proposed link road, Council is currently progressing on studies for Banyule Flats and Warringal Parklands. The initial stage is a heritage study produced by appointed specialist heritage consultants where their findings are expected after February 2014. The second stage of the investigation is an ecological assessment of Banyule Flats commencing prior to July 2014. Collectively these studies are exploring opportunities to better recognise the heritage and environmental status of these important features. Council has also given a submission to the State Government’s draft metropolitan planning strategy, Plan Melbourne. This submission was considered at the 2 December Council meeting and is giving effect to Council’s preferred alignment for a more direct route connecting the Western Ring Road with the Eastern Freeway towards Eastlink. This connection avoids the unnecessary impact on Banyule Flats

and Warringal Parkland, as well as provides a higher capacity ring road link without the significant constraint of the Mullum Mullum tunnel, from EastLink to the Eastern Freeway. Council’s Plan Melbourne submission argues that a preferred approach should consider: Revising the approach for investigating the future North-East link to prioritise metropolitan, circumferential freight movement to Eastlink, with a revised alignment and southern connection at Ringwood. CONCLUSION The recently released draft Plan Melbourne strategy states that the Victorian Government will deliver the North East Link connecting the M80 Ring Road to the Eastern Freeway/Eastlink, as part of a long term strategy. Council has made a submission to the Victorian Government in connection with the draft Plan Melbourne strategy giving effect to Council’s preferred alignment for the link which avoids the unnecessary impact on Banyule Flats and Warringal Parkland. RECOMMENDATION That Council notes this report.

attendees of the consultation session and owner / occupiers previously contacted in this Development Plan approval process were given an opportunity to nominate. As a result, in excess of 40 submissions were received. To assist with the process of selection, those who submitted were then given an opportunity to provide a written statement about themselves to indicate their suitability to represent the wider community on the issues raised by residents. A number of residents took the opportunity to provide a written statement about themselves. SELECTION OF RESIDENTS Residents who provided a written statement have been shortlisted and grouped according to their geographical location. Residents have also been filtered based on the skills they are willing to contribute to the group, the level of participation they have made to the consultation process thus far, ability to represent the views of the wider community and achieving a gender balance. In addition it is considered that there should be a mix of residents who were and were not part of the previous ‘Working Group’. Through this selection process, Council officers offer a selection of 10 residents for inclusion within the Ivanhoe Grammar School, Resident Interest Group. For privacy reasons the full list of candidates for consideration and the selected shortlist have been circulated separately to Councillors. The final list of selected candidates will be included in the Council resolution. It is noted that residents who have not been nominated will still have the ability to represent themselves through the usual consultation and assessment process. This is particularly relevant for those residents who are more immediately affected by the changes proposed in the Development Plan. It is expected that those residents will be given substantial opportunities to discuss key concerns with Council officers throughout the process. CONCLUSION In accordance with the two Council resolutions of 26 August 2013 and 23 September 2013, a total of 10 residents from the general geographical areas to the East, South and West are to be selected to form a Resident Interest Group. In addition to their geographical location, the selection of residents should be based on the skills they are willing to contribute to the group, the level of participation they have made to the consultation process thus far, ability to represent the views of the wider community, achieving a gender balance and resulting in a mix of residents who were and were not part of the previous Ivanhoe Grammar Development Plan ‘Working Group’. RECOMMENDATION That Council: 1. Select 10 residents (to be confirmed at the meeting) from the general geographical areas to the East, South and West based on the skills they are willing to contribute to the group, the level of participation they have made to the consultation process thus far, ability to represent the views of the wider community, achieving a gender balance and resulting in a mix of residents who were and were not part of the previous Ivanhoe Grammar Development Plan

44 TURNHAM AVENUE ROSANNA cont’d with car parking fronting Turnham Avenue. A plan of the proposed subdivision is included as an attachment to this report.

On 22 November 2010 Council resolved to prepare the Rosanna site for future Development or sale. In February 2012, the subject land was rezoned to Commercial 1 Zone and Mixed Use Zone. This facilitated a change to the Banyule Planning Scheme to encourage future use and development of the land for a possible range of uses including commercial, retail, office and residential. Planning Permit P201/11 was issued by Council on 26 September 2011 for the Vesting of Reserve No. 2 on LP8568 in Banyule City Council, Removal of Reserve Status from land shown as Reserve No 2 on LP8568 and consolidation of land shown as Lot 45 LP8568 and Reserve No 2 on LP8568. At its ordinary meeting of 18 November 2013, Council directed that the land at 44 Turnham Avenue (and the associated Douglas Street car park) be sold to a prospective purchaser, resolving that: 1.

Having considered submissions and complied with the provisions of Section 189 of the Local Government Act 1989 by giving public notice of Council’s intention to sell the Council owned land known as 44 Turnham Avenue, Rosanna now directs that the Land be sold to the prospective purchaser.

2.

Write to each submitter advising them of the decision and the reasons for the decision.

3.

Authorise the CEO and/or his delegate to negotiate the proposed terms and conditions of the contract and the signing and sealing of the necessary documentation to effect the sale and transfer of the land at the appropriate time.

SUBJECT SITE AND SURROUNDING AREA The subject site consists of the Rosanna Library building, the Rosanna Council Offices and the Council car parking at the rear of these buildings.

PUBLIC NOTIFICATION The application was advertised by mail to adjoining property owners and occupiers. A total of 3 objections have been received. Grounds of objection are summarised as follows:

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

Place – Sustainable Amenity and Built Environment



Clarification sought whether the right of way will still exist between the reserve and Turnham Avenue



Existing pedestrian and vehicular right of access should be preserved between Douglas Street and the Melbourne Water drainage reserve, as the public and private right of access is established through continuous use.

CONSULTATION Discussions have been held with one of the key objectors with regard to the likely recommendation to approve the subdivision and the implications on any future access claims by objectors. It was indicated that the subdivision in itself would not impact on a future claim. The key objector acknowledged and understood the reasons for this view but is likely to maintain the objection. REFERRAL COMMENTS External Referral Authorities The application was referred to Yarra Valley Water, Melbourne Water, Jemena and APA Group who had no objection to the proposed subdivision, subject to conditions being placed on any permit issued. Councils Engineering Department Councils Engineering department have advised that there are a number of Council drainage assets that have not been located within drainage easements nor had drainage easements created over them. It is suggested that easements be created on lots 1 and 3 to cover the existing drainage pipes. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATION RESPONSE TO POLICY FRAMEWORK Given that the proposed subdivision formalises how the existing buildings and car park are already being used, it is considered that the character of the area will be maintained and as such the proposal is consistent with State and Local Policy. The subdivision boundaries will accord with the existing zone boundaries and will facilitate the future development of lots 2 and 3 in accordance with the mixed use zone and the commercial zone. Lot 1 will contain the library on land zoned public use, and will retain direct frontage to Turnham Avenue and Douglas Street. Car parking associated with the library will remain unaltered, including the spaces under the library and to the east of the building. PUBLIC OPEN SPACE The requirement for public open space has been considered having regard to Council’s Public Open Space Strategy and Section 18 of the Subdivision Act 1988. The land is currently comprised of 10 lots and is proposed to be re-subdivided into 3 larger lots. Although the proposed subdivision will not increase the demand for public open space immediately, it is expected that future owners of Lot 2 and 3 would possibly be interested to develop the land for greater residential densities, therefore creating increased demand for public open space. It is therefore considered

appropriate to defer the request for any public open space contribution at this stage with the ability to request this at a future stage when the residential densities are fully understood. OBJECTORS’ CONCERNS Objectors have raised concerns with the ability to ensure ongoing access along the drainage reserve on the eastern boundary of the site. The proposed subdivision does not seek to alter this access and would continue to allow free passage of pedestrians along this easement. Although the objectors consider that they have right of access across this land, no documentation has been provided to demonstrate this right. Furthermore, approval of the proposed subdivision and subsequent transfer of ownership will not extinguish any rights that may be able to be demonstrated. Although the ultimate future development of the land is yet to be finalised or approved through a planning permit process, it is likely that vehicle and pedestrian access will continue along sections of the drainage reserve and along the easement created to the rear of the library building. CONCLUSION The proposed subdivision is in accordance with the requirements of the Banyule Planning Scheme and on this basis warrants conditional support.

RECOMMENDATION That Council issue a Notice of Decision to grant a Permit in respect of Application No. P1033/2013 for a Three Lot Subdivision (Consolidation of Titles and Realignment of Boundaries) at 44 Turnham Avenue Rosanna, subject to the following conditions: Plans (1)

SUMMARY This report provides Council with an update on the Ivanhoe Activity Area Planning Scheme Amendments. The report recommends that Council consider the proposed changes to the Municipal Strategic Statement and approved Ivanhoe Structure Plan when assessing planning applications in the Ivanhoe Activity Area. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “strengthen local activity and employment areas”. BACKGROUND On 17 December 2012 Council resolved to adopt the revised draft structure plan. A revised version of the Structure Plan was adopted on 3 June 2013. At its meeting on the 17 December 2012 it was also resolved: “1. 2.

That Council undertakes further work to achieve approval from the Minister for Planning for permanent controls for the Ivanhoe Major Activity Area. That the Mayor, as a matter of urgency, writes to the Minister requesting interim planning controls in accordance with the adopted Ivanhoe Structure Plan, dated 17 December 2012.”

In accordance with the Council resolution planning scheme amendment documents were prepared to enable the translation of the Ivanhoe Structure Plan into the Banyule Planning Scheme. The Mayor also wrote to the Minister on the 19 December 2012 advising of Council’s adoption of the Ivanhoe Structure Plan and requesting interim planning controls. Council’s request for interim controls included the following: Amendment C91 – Interim DDO Planning Scheme Amendment C91 introduces two new schedules to the Design and Development Overlay (DDO).

IVANHOE STRUCTURE PLAN PLANNING SCHEME AMENDMENTS cont’d The Minister has approved the two new schedules to the DDO on an interim basis and the Notice of approval of Amendment C91 appeared in the Victorian Government Gazette on 28 November 2013. The two new schedules to the DDO are now included in the Banyule Planning Scheme. Requested MSS changes have not been approved. The omission of the MSS changes from the interim controls is discussed further under Technical Considerations in this report. The interim controls will expire on 31 May 2015. Amendment C92 – Interim Heritage Controls Planning Scheme Amendment C92 introduces an interim Heritage Overlay to two new heritage precincts and one new heritage place as follows:  Interwar shop, former post office, at 1041-1041a Heidelberg Road  Kenilworth Parade Precinct  Toora Street Precinct The Minister has approved these interim heritage controls. Notice of Approval of Amendment C92 appeared in the Victorian Government Gazette on 21 November 2013 and the controls are now included in the Banyule Planning Scheme. The interim heritage controls will expire on 31 October 2014. The interim controls for Amendments C91 and C92 offer immediate planning guidance and direction for the Ivanhoe Activity Area while the planning scheme amendments for the permanent planning scheme controls are on exhibition. The amendments seeking to introduce permanent controls to the Ivanhoe Activity Area are as follows: Amendment C93 – DDO, MSS amendments and changes to zones Planning Scheme Amendment C93 introduces changes to parts of the MSS and introduces two new schedules to the DDO. Amendment C93 also intends to rezone a number of sites in precincts 1, 3, 4 and 5 from Residential 1 Zone and Public Use Zone to the Mixed Use Zone and Commercial 1 Zone. The proposed zone changes reflect the intent of the structure plan. Public exhibition of Amendment C93 commenced on Thursday 5 December 2013. Exhibition of the Amendment includes Notice in the Victorian Government Gazette, Notices in the Heidelberg and Diamond Valley Leader newspapers and letters to land owners and occupiers within the Ivanhoe Activity Area boundary and surrounding area. The exhibition period will finish on 13 February 2014. Amendment C94 – Heritage Controls Planning Scheme Amendment C94 proposes to introduce two new precincts and two new places to the heritage overlay. Those precincts and places are the same properties as those included in Amendment C92. One additional property located outside of Ivanhoe has also been included in the request for permanent heritage controls. Saxam Homestead is located at 108-130 Diamond Creek Road (St Helena), Greensborough and was nominated by a member of the community for heritage review. Saxam Homestead has been included in this amendment as it was not identified in Banyule’s previous heritage review and subsequent planning scheme amendment.

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

Place – Sustainable Amenity and Built Environment

Public exhibition of Amendment C94 commenced on Thursday 5 December 2013. Exhibition of the Amendment includes Notice in the Victorian Government Gazette, Notices in the Heidelberg and Diamond Valley Leader newspapers and letters to land owners and occupiers within the Ivanhoe Activity Area boundary and surrounding area. Letters were also sent to the owners and occupiers of Saxam Homestead. The exhibition period will finish on 13 February 2014. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATIONS The Minister’s approval of the interim planning controls provides design objectives and guidelines for development in the Ivanhoe Structure Plan area. These controls are now in the Banyule Planning Scheme and will be used while the amendments for the permanent controls are being finalised. While the Minister has not approved the interim changes to the MSS, in practice when assessing planning applications Council will look to the Ivanhoe Structure Plan which is an adopted Council document and the MSS changes proposed in Amendment C93. The MSS mirrors the Ivanhoe Structure Plan in terms of providing an overall vision and policy position for the Ivanhoe Activity Area. The MSS also includes a number of objectives and strategies relating to the future direction of the Ivanhoe Activity Area based around the five main themes outlined in the Structure Plan. As planning scheme Amendment C93 progresses through exhibition to a possible Planning Panel, the changes to the MSS will gain more statutory weight. CONCLUSION The adopted Ivanhoe Structure Plan and the MSS changes proposed through Amendment C93 provide the overarching vision and objectives for the Ivanhoe Activity Area and will guide decision making on individual planning application even though the interim planning scheme controls do not include the proposed MSS changes. The approval of the interim planning controls in the Banyule Planning Scheme is an important step towards achieving certainty about development in the Ivanhoe Activity Area for residents, developers and business owners. RECOMMENDATION That Council, in the absence of interim changes to the Municipal Strategic Statement: 1. Continue to apply the Ivanhoe Structure Plan to provide guidance on the vision and strategic direction of the Ivanhoe Activity Area, and 2. Refer to the changes proposed to the Municipal Strategic Statement through Amendment C93 that is currently on public exhibition when providing guidance to applicants and in the assessment of planning permit applications.

The site is located on the northern side of Rattray Road, approximately 60m northwest of the intersection with Reichelt Avenue. The site generally has a rectangular shape save for the south-western corner splay, with the following dimensions: Northern boundary (rear) Western boundary (side) Eastern boundary (side) South boundary (frontage) South-western boundary (corner splay) Site area

21.34m 37.69m 42.8m 16.77m 6.54m 896.9m2

The site has a fall of approximately 5.4m from the south-western corner splay to the north-eastern corner. A 2.44m wide drainage and sewerage is located along the northern boundary. The site is currently developed with a single-storey dwelling. The existing dwelling is central to the site with a carport that is attached to the south-eastern side of the dwelling and a small shed is located to the north-east of the dwelling. The dwelling has a weatherboard construction and a tiled, pitched roof. The site is moderately vegetated with a mixture of native and exotic trees of varying heights. A single concrete crossover located approximately 5.4m west of the site’s south-western corner and an asphalt driveway provides vehicle access to the carport. The site has three direct abuttals:  No. 115 Rattray Road adjoins the site to the east. This property is developed with a single-storey weatherboard dwelling with a tiled, pitched roof with eaves. The dwelling is setback 10.7m to the street and a minimum of 1.8m to the common boundary. A flat roofed, two-car garage is located to the south-east of the dwelling, within the frontage and a deck is attached to the rear of the northwestern half of the dwelling. The property is moderately vegetated with trees of varying sizes. It is noted that there are a number of medium and large sized canopy trees. The western side of the dwelling and secluded private open space adjoins the common boundary.  Nos. 1 & 2/111 Rattray Road adjoin the site to the north and north-east respectively. These properties are attached and developed with single-storey brick dwellings with tiled, pitched roofs with eaves. The dwellings are part of a nine unit development which is accessed by a common driveway located adjacent to the site’s western boundary. The dwellings are setback a minimum of 5.5m from the common boundary. The properties are sparsely vegetated, however, the vast area of common property that surrounds the dwellings is moderately vegetated, predominantly with trees. The surrounding area is characterised by a mixture of single and two-storey dwellings. Construction materials generally consist of a mixture of brick and weatherboard. Roof form is predominantly tiled with a mixture of a hipped and pitched form. Landform in the vicinity generally falls to the north-east. Given this, properties on the southern side of Rattray Road generally have high front façades that are elevated above street level.

Site area Dwelling Density Site Coverage Impervious Site Coverage BACKGROUND/HISTORY Previous Applications

Planning application (P549/12) for the construction of 3 dwellings was refused by Council under delegation on 8 March 2013. The key reasons for refusal can be summarised as follows:  Lack of strategic support.  The siting and design of the proposed development will have an overbearing physical impact upon neighbouring properties and will have an adverse impact upon local residential amenity.  The mass, bulk and scale and setback of the built form represents a failure to respect the existing and preferred neighbourhood character and will erode the generally spacious and low scale development that characterises the street and immediate neighbourhood.  Inadequate space has been provided throughout the development to provide acceptable planting areas and landscaping opportunities, including replacement and revegetation tree planting to adequately soften views of the development from the street and neighbouring land and maintaining the native vegetation dominated vistas and streetscapes of the area. Current Application Neighbourhood Character Prior to the submission of the current application, Council met with the Applicant to discuss the proposal. Following this meeting, an email dated 24 April was forwarded to the Applicants Architect providing additional feedback. A number of the issues/design advice raised in this email remained outstanding upon lodgement of the application. The current application was received on 17 May 2013 and a Request for Further Information letter was sent to the applicant on 12 June 2013. The letter also raised the following concerns: 

Vegetation - impact on the existing vegetation: needs to be addressed



Built Form - undercroft garage reads as three storeys; further reductions sought of the upper level of dwelling 2 and upper level of dwelling 3 (through the loss of a bedroom).



Setbacks: limited ability to soften views in particular upper level of dwelling 3.

Amended plans and the required further information were submitted on 11 July 2013 after which time the application was advertised and during this period, one objection was received. Further to a request from the Planning Officer to correct an error on the drawings, the Applicants architect submitted a revised basement/ground floor plan and elevations

on 16 October 2013. This showed that the garage for Dwelling 2 Level is AHD 68.100 in lieu of AHD 70.100. By way of email on 8 November 2013, the Applicant and their Architects were advised that the Planning Department had maintained concerns about the development which mainly concentrate on the loss of protected vegetation and the inability to provide sufficient planting opportunities for offset planting. This is due to the scale of the development which in turn raises concerns with regard to compliance with the Neighbourhood Character policy. It is also noted that the site is located within a Bush Garden Precinct and within a DDO8 and VPO1 overlays. The Applicant was requested to consider these concerns and advised that a redesign of the development should be considered to address the concerns. No revised plans have been received to date and it was considered necessary to finalise the application. The assessment was made on the advertised plans and revised floor plans and elevations received on 16 October. These plans form the basis of this report. Prior to the final assessment by the Planning Department, a second objection was received on 20 November 2013. PLANNING CONTROLS Control Residential 1 Zone

CURRENT AMENDMENTS The following current amendments are applicable to the subject site: C73 Proposed Amendment C73 seeks to introduce Local Policy Clause 22.07 – Environmentally Efficient Design into the Banyule Planning Scheme. This policy applies to all residential and commercial development in the City of Banyule. The amendment commenced exhibition on 28 February 2013 and finished on 29 April 2013. An Advisory Committee and Panel will consider the amendment in late November 2013. PUBLIC NOTIFICATION The application was notified in accordance with section 52 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 because it was deemed that the application could cause material detriment. As a result of advertising a total of two objections have been received to date. Grounds of objection are summarised as follows: 

Invasion of privacy – rear dwellings take in the full width of the boundary, decking area located within 2.6m of the common fence affecting their privacy.



Detrimental impact on value of property located to the rear of the subject site.



Tree removal - removal of protected vegetation that contributes to the area’s environmental and the treed character of its neighbourhood setting



Impacts on retained trees - Impact of the development close to the trees proposed for retention appears extreme i.e. underground car park.



Replanting potential – proposal neither provides new habitat or protects the current.



Inconsistent with Bush Garden policy – relevant policy seeks to retain existing canopy trees and space around them to ensure survival; seeks site layouts to be designed with spacing allowing for planting throughout the site. Key characteristics of the policy not taken into account.



Overdevelopment of the site.

CONSULTATION Consultation with the objectors did not occur given the Planning Department deemed the proposal unacceptable and worthy of refusal. REFERRAL COMMENTS The application was referred to the following:  Engineering Services: no objection to the development subject to standard conditions; garage for dwelling 3 garage moved 1m west of the east boundary

 Council Arborist: does not support the proposal due to the impact on existing protected vegetation and lack of adequate space to provide offset planting.  ESD Officer: no objection to the development subject to standard conditions.  Livability: development nominates Dwelling 1 as the dwelling to incorporate Councils LHG. No objection to the development subject to conditions which will seek minor redesign changes to Dwelling 1. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATION Response to Policy Framework The proposed development fails to strike an appropriate balance between competing State and Local Planning Policies. Although it is acknowledged that the development contributes to urban consolidation and housing diversity, the location of the site and proximity to services as noted in the table above warrants greater consideration of neighbourhood character and residential amenity which the proposal has not sufficiently addressed as noted within the attached Clause 55 and Residential Neighbourhood Character Policy assessment. RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBOURHOOD CHARACTER POLICY ASSESSMENT (CLAUSE 22.02) A detailed assessment against the Policy as incorporated in the Banyule Planning Scheme is included as an attachment to this report. It is considered that the proposal does not adequately meet the objectives of Council’s Neighbourhood Character Policy. Those objectives which the proposal does not adequately comply with are listed below: 

To maintain and enhance the native vegetation dominated vistas, streetscapes and backdrops, retain remnant indigenous vegetation, and encourage the replanting of indigenous plants



To ensure buildings and extensions do not dominate the streetscape or the building, and do not adversely affect the outlook and amenity of neighbouring dwellings.



To ensure new buildings and extensions are sympathetic to the current building form and architectural style.



To ensure that developments on or near ridgelines retain existing trees, sit below the tree canopies, minimise excavation, and enable further tree planting to form a continuous canopy, so that the scenic quality is maintained and enhanced.



To minimise excavation for vehicle access, loss of front garden space, and dominance of vehicle access, vehicle storage facilities and built form as viewed from the street.



To maintain and strengthen the spaciousness and bush character of front gardens and the view of these gardens and trees from the street.

The policy for Bush Garden Precinct clearly emphasises the importance of not only protecting the existing character in achieving the preferred neighbourhood character, but enhancing it through tree protection and building siting that provides sufficient space around and between buildings to create attractive, treed landscape settings, including by creating new opportunities for vegetation. In summary, it is considered that the proposed development does not sufficiently maintain and enhance the native vegetation character of the area due to the proposed tree removal; potential detrimental impact on the trees proposed for retention; and, the limited space available for the offset vegetation. Due to the extent of the proposed development the proposal relies on existing vegetation on adjacent properties to screen the development and reduce its visual dominance when viewed from the streetscape and adjoining sites. SAFER DESIGN POLICY ASSESSMENT (CLAUSE 22.03) The application is considered to meet the policy. The development will continue to enable observation of the street through the existing front dwelling being orientated with windows in this direction (there will be views to the street across the driveway from the lounge room). The new dwelling will have an entrance that is easily identifiable from the access driveway. The vehicle access driveway has been assessed to be safe with vehicles able to turn within the site and leave in a forward direction. OVERLAY PROVISIONS Vegetation Protection Overlay Schedule 1 (VPO1) The subject site is located within an area protected by the provisions of the VPO1 which seek to protect the native vegetation which is recognised as a major contributor to the landscape of the area, its distinctive local character and visual amenity. The VPO1 decisions guidelines require the consideration of the following:     

To conserve the existing pattern of vegetation, landscape quality and ecosystems within the area. To address the threatening processes associated with widespread habitat loss and degradation that has occurred in North East Melbourne. To protect the area as a habitat for local fauna and as an important habitat link. To promote the retention of existing indigenous vegetation wherever possible. To ensure that the development, use and management of land is compatible with the existing character and landscape conservation of the area.

The submitted arborist report advises that the removal of 12 trees will be required to accommodate the proposed development. Under the provisions of the VPO1 which protects trees native to Victoria, a planning permit would be required for the removal of trees numbered 3, 4, 7, 10 and 20.

Tree number 12 which is indigenous has been identified as being dead and does not appear to have nesting hollows; therefore a planning permit is not required for its removal. Despite this, the submitted floor plans show the proposed removal of tree number 7 (medium retention), number 10 (low retention) and number 20 (low-medium retention) with trees numbered 3 (low retention) and 4 (low-medium retention) being retained. However, it should be noted that the submitted arborist report describes Tree # 3 as being in poor condition and deemed unsuitable for long-term retention. It is considered that the proposed development will have a major encroachment on this tree. Tree number 4 is also described as being in poor condition and the proposed porch and paving of Unit 1 will represent a major encroachment to this tree. The submitted arborist report also notes that ‘while significant root damage may occur to tree number 8, care during demolition and excavation works combined with low-impact driveway construction and general soil protection measures should maintain the viability of Tree number 8’. Having reviewed the submitted documentation, the Council arborist has advised that due to the potential detrimental impact of Dwelling 1, tree number 8 should be considered as removed as the works will have an impact that would be fatal to this tree. The Applicant’s summarises their concerns follows: ‘The number, size and distribution of mature indigenous trees on the site greatly limits development flexibility. While efforts have been made to retain most of the higher amenity trees, removal of several lesser quality trees is required and supported. This will result in the loss of vegetation cover and habitat values but much of this can be re-generated over time if suitable replacement planting is incorporated in landscape planning’. pg. 22 of submitted arborist report prepared by Ladhlan Williams, Tree Response. The proposed tree removal and subsequent replacement by a development consisting of three dwellings which lacks appropriate areas to provide off set planting will alter the character of neighbourhood by replacing vegetation with built form that would further fragment and threaten the habitat value of the VPO1 areas. Irrespective of the above observation made by the Applicant’s arborist, it is recognised that the VPO1 policy outlines that ‘the continued viability of the area as a significant environmental resource is under threat from the continued urban development of the area’. It is true that Council believes this area is suitable for some degree of increased density however such development must respect and enhance the character of the area. This proposed development, in its current form does not meet this objective by the extent of tree removal.

The subject site is located within the Plenty River East Neighbourhood Character, which recognises the importance of protecting the treed bush character. The following design objectives are identified to assist in achieving this:    

To ensure that development does not penetrate the tree canopy. To ensure that the heavily vegetated character of the area is respected by new development. To ensure that the health of existing trees is not jeopardised by new development. To maintain the spaciousness and bush character of front gardens.

The proposal seeks to construct buildings and works within the drip line of trees which are protected under the VPO1 that affects the land (trees numbered 2, 3, 4, 8 – discussed above, 9, 11, 22, 23 and 25). As outlined in the submitted arborist report, major encroachment form the proposed development is proposed. Considerable care during demolition and excavation works plus low-impact driveway construction e.g. bridging systems are required just to ensure that these trees survive. ‘A bridging system is viewed as necessary rather than above grade aggregate because of long term compaction concerns of the significant proportions of TPZ’s that would be affected’ pg. 22 of submitted arborist report prepared by Ladhlan Williams, Tree Response. It is considered that the proposal does not have sufficient regard for the character of the area and the importance of retaining vegetation both on the site and within adjacent properties, and providing areas for replacement and revegetation planting to ensure the proposal contributes positively to the Bush Garden Precinct 1 area. Through the removal of existing vegetation and lack of replanting opportunities within the site will create a development which dominates the landscape when viewed from adjoining properties and the streetscape. The proposal is not considered to be consistent with the objectives that seek to respect the heavily vegetated character of the area and maintain the spaciousness and bush character of front gardens. PARTICULAR PROVISIONS CAR PARKING ASSESSMENT (CLAUSE 52.06) The application is required to be assessed under clause 52.06 because it is a primary permit trigger under the Banyule Planning Scheme. Clause 52.06-2 states that prior to an “increase in the number of … residents of an existing use’ the number of car parking spaces required under clause 52.06-5 must be provided. With alterations (refer to Engineering Referral), the application is consistent with the requirements contained in clause 52.06-5 (Number of car parking spaces) and the design guidelines of Clause 52.06-8 (Design standards for car parking).

RESCODE ASSESSMENT (CLAUSE 55) An assessment against the provisions of Clause 55 (ResCode) of the Banyule Planning Scheme has been undertaken and forms an attachment to this report. The proposal does not comply with the following objectives:  Neighbourhood Character;  Residential Policy;  Landscaping; and,  Design detail The proposal contravenes a number of other objectives and standards, however, compliance could be achieved with minor design modifications and therefore they have not been included in the above list. OBJECTORS’ CONCERNS The majority of objectors’ concerns have been addressed above or in the attached ResCode and Neighbourhood Character Policy assessments however the following requires further discussion: Devaluation of property It is a long standing planning principle that the perceived loss of property value by objectors is not a matter which can be sustained when assessing an application for planning permit. CONCLUSION It is considered that the proposed development has not achieved an appropriate level of compliance with the relevant State and Local Planning Policies and does not adequately address key objectives of Council’s Residential Neighbourhood Character Policy and Clause 55 of the Banyule Planning Scheme as detailed within the attachments to this report. The proposal is considered to be contrary to the relevant State and Local Planning Policy Frameworks and of an excessive scale and density having regard to limited incremental change within the Residential Areas Framework at Clause 21.06 of the Banyule Planning Scheme. The proposal does not adequately meet several Clause 55 standards and objectives and does not achieve appropriate design outcomes. In addition, the development does not adequately meet the objectives of the preferred neighbourhood character anticipated under Clause 22.02 of the Banyule Planning Scheme, in particular the Bush Garden Precinct 1 setting. The proposal is also considered contrary to the objectives and decision guidelines of the Design and Development Overlay (Schedule 8) and the Vegetation Protection Overlay (Schedule 1). As such, it is considered that the application should not be supported in its current form.

That Council having complied with Section 52, 58, 60, 61 and 62 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987, issue a Refusal to Grant a Planning Permit in respect of Application No. P484/2013 for Construction of three two-storey dwellings (unit 1 with basement parking); retaining wall within 10 metres of the front boundary; vegetation removal; and, building and works under the dripline of protection vegetation at 113 Rattray Road MONTMORENCY on the following grounds. Strategic context 1.

The proposal does not comply with Clause 21.04 Land Use (Housing) as it does not represent good urban design, sustainable residential development, protect residential amenity or provide for the desired future neighbourhood character.

2.

The proposal does not comply with Clause 21.05 Natural Environment as it only allows minimal vegetation to be established that does not make an acceptable contribution to neighbourhood character.

3.

The site is not considered appropriate for the scale and density of development proposed and is contrary to the Residential Areas Framework at Clause 21.062 of the Banyule Planning Scheme.

Siting, design and neighbouring residential amenity 4.

The siting and design of the proposed development will have an overbearing physical impact upon neighbouring properties and will have an adverse impact upon local residential amenity. This is contrary to Clause 15 - Built Form and Heritage, Clause 21.04 – Housing, Clause 21.06 – Built Environment, Clause 22.02 - Residential Neighbourhood Character Policy, Clause 42.02 – Vegetation Protection Overlay Schedule 1, Clause 43.02 – Design and Development Overlay (Schedule 8) and Standards B1 – Neighbourhood Character, B2 – Residential Policy, B13 – Landscaping and B31 - Design detail of Clause 55 (ResCode) of the Banyule Planning Scheme.

Mass, bulk, scale, setback and neighbourhood character 5.

The mass, bulk and scale and setback of the built form of the proposal is contrary to both the existing and preferred character of the neighbourhood and would erode the spacious and well landscaped character that characterises the street and immediate neighbourhood. This is contrary to Clause 15 - Built Form and Heritage, Clause 21.04 – Housing, Clause 21.06 – Built Environment, Clause 22.02 - Residential Neighbourhood Character Policy, Clause 42.02 – Vegetation Protection Overlay Schedule 1, Clause 43.02 – Design and Development Overlay (Schedule 8) and Standards B1 – Neighbourhood Character, B2 – Residential Policy, B13 – Landscaping, B14 – Access, and B31 – Design Detail of Clause 55 (ResCode) of the Banyule Planning Scheme.

HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited, restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report. It is considered that the subject matter does not raise any human rights issues. BACKGROUND In October 2012, Cr Langdon letterboxed a number of residents in the affected area. This letter included a survey that was developed in response to the local community who had suggested that the area should have a different name. This survey requested local residents to provide their views and any possible name suggestions. At its Ordinary meeting of 19 November 2012, Council resolved: “1. That Council organise meetings with Australia Post or the appropriate Federal authority and The Office of Geographical Names Committee to discuss proposed name change for the areas between Bell Street, Waterdale Road, Banksia Street and Warringal Place. 2. That Council notes the petition received by Council on 24 September 2012 seeking the name change by the areas bounded by Warringal Place, Banksia Street, Upper Heidelberg Road, requesting the name change from Heidelberg to Eaglemont and advise the lead petitioner of this Notice of Motion. 3. That a report be prepared for a future Council meeting outlining the results of the discussions with the authorities and the next steps needed to address these matters.”

 The area has historically been part of Heidelberg and name should reflect that.  Unnecessary change and asking what the purpose of the process is.  Waste of time, money and Council resources.  Major inconvenience of an address change. Too much involved in making changes.  Local business concerns such as stationary, business cards and existing advertising.  Some businesses located on Bell Street feel customers identify that Bell Street is in the Heidelberg area and that changing Bell Street with an Ivanhoe name would potentially cause confusion. Some community comments suggested that renaming the area under consideration to a name associated with Ivanhoe could create a downward effect on house prices in Ivanhoe. A number of other community respondents suggested that the name should just be Ivanhoe or Heidelberg and that Bellfield should be included in the proposal. Alternately, it was suggested that the area under consideration should be included as part of Bellfield. LEGAL CONSIDERATION Under the Geographic Place Names Act 1998, Council is a naming authority responsible for the development of proposals to name or rename any feature, road or locality within Council jurisdiction. Council must ensure that all proposals conform to the principles outlined in the Guidelines for Geographic Names. These Guidelines were recently updated in 2010 and 2013. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATION Using the Guidelines Geographic Place Names and analysis of the community consultation received an assessment of the two preferred community suggested names is provided. Table 4: Assessment of names proposed by community

Name Ivanhoe North

Origin Community suggestion

Relevance The proposal area is geographically north of Ivanhoe. It is close to a group of signed neighbourhood shops which are informally known as “Ivanhoe North Shops”. The Local Post Office (LPO) at this location uses the name “Ivanhoe North LPO”.

Comments This name proposes that as the area is north of Ivanhoe, it is a logical name consideration. There are similar formal suburb names in the area which use directional references, such as Ivanhoe East and Heidelberg West. The name Ivanhoe North is in informal use at the “Ivanhoe North Shops” (located in Waterdale Road). It is also

Name

Comments geographically closer to the Ivanhoe North shops. This name proposes to link the feature of the local hill to the name Ivanhoe. Information on any other name this feature may have been referred to could not be located.

OFFICE OF GEOGRAPHIC NAMES After the closure of the consultation period and the survey results collated, Council officers contacted the OGN to outline the community’s position. The OGN indicated that the preferred community name may not be supported by the Registrar due to it being considered a duplication of existing names and also that it contained a directional reference. Notwithstanding this, it was indicated to the OGN that similar formal names already exist within the municipality, these being Heidelberg West and Ivanhoe East. Additionally the OGN was advised that the community had come to use the informal name Ivanhoe North as the neighbourhood shops in Waterdale Road have a local post office which is named Ivanhoe North LPO. There is also a Council sign which uses this informal name to identify the local neighbourhood shopping strip. Whilst these shops are located outside the affected area, it is considered to be within close proximity. The OGN was advised that the community in the affected area had suggested the name and were surveyed on names of their choice. The OGN indicated that the suggested names from the community may not be considered appropriate by the Registrar. The OGN was also advised the community have indicated their preference for a name connected to Ivanhoe, but were not given the opportunity to be able to consider Ivanhoe as a name as the postcode boundary would not be changed. Following a series of communications in November 2013, the OGN facilitated contact with Australia Post in relation to the matter, specifically the possibility of aligning the postcode boundary of Ivanhoe 3079 if the area under consideration was renamed Ivanhoe. Australia Post have now provided “in principle” written agreement to align the postcode boundary of the affected area should the suburb boundary change. Australia Post also note that having an address locality boundary of Ivanhoe may not alter existing arrangements regarding the collection of postal articles from a LPO. DISCUSSION The consultation undertaken indicates that the local community in the affected area are supportive of a change of name from Heidelberg Heights to a name associated with Ivanhoe. Several reasons have been presented in relation to this proposal, including that Bell Street “divides” this area from the rest of Heidelberg Heights and therefore the affected area is more connected with the neighbourhood area around Banksia Street. Many also felt the neighbourhood character was consistent with the housing in the location south of Banksia Street. Proximity to Ivanhoe North Shops and the LPO there has also been cited. A further example of this is that currently people in this locality travel further to the Heidelberg West LPO to receive items they have had posted to them that require collection. However, as indicated above Australia Post have advised that having the affected area address locality changed to

Council is now in a position to consider a new name that has general community support. However, the option to shift the suburb boundary to include the area under consideration to be a part of Ivanhoe was not available at the time of consultation. As Australia Post have now agreed “in principle” to align the postcode boundary if Council shift the suburb boundary to include the affected area, consideration of this option is now available. As such, further consultation with the local community in the affected area could be undertaken to ascertain if there is support to include the affected area as part of Ivanhoe instead of pursuing a new name. Any further survey would include a reply paid envelope and indicate that non-response by the closing date is counted as tacit approval to rename the area under consideration to Ivanhoe. This approach is appropriate considering the level of community support for renaming the affected area to a name associated with Ivanhoe. If a change of suburb name is to occur, administrative updates to Council databases containing address details of the affected would be required as well as maps and its electronic mapping system. Council would also be required to notify the following parties:  Local Australia Post offices.  Local real estate agents.  Gas, water and electricity suppliers.  Local mapping agencies.  Local police stations.  Ambulance branch.  Metropolitan Fire Brigade Station.  State Emergency Service local headquarters. The OGN would notify the following parties:  Australia Post.  Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority.  Emergency Management Spatial Information Network Australia – (Victorian Committee) members including Ambulance Victoria, Victoria Police, Country Fire Authority, State Emergency Service, Department of Sustainability and Environment, Department of Justice and Department of Human Services.  Real Estate Institute of Victoria.  Australian Bureau of Statistics.  Australian Electoral Commission.  Melway, UBD and other spatial information or mapping agencies.  This information is also distributed through various networks to international organisations such as Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth. Property owners and occupiers would need to notify (where applicable):  VicRoads.  Telephone providers.  Internet providers.  Insurance providers.  Employers.  Superannuation membership.  Ambulance subscription.  Centrelink.

This notification information was included in the consultation package mailed to property owners/occupiers. OFFICER COMMENT If Council wish to pursue renaming the affected area, consideration should be given to a name that is more likely to be supported by the OGN. From the naming options suggested by the community, it is indicated that the OGN would be more likely to support renaming the affected area to Ivanhoe, Heidelberg or Bellfield rather than approve the community suggested name Ivanhoe North. CONCLUSION Consultation indicates that there is significant community support to rename the affected area to a name connected with Ivanhoe. The preferred name (Ivanhoe North) was made by the community on the assumption that the area could not simply be renamed Ivanhoe. Council now has been advised of “in principle” support from Australia Post to align the suburb boundary should the area be renamed Ivanhoe. As such, further community consultation could be undertaken to ascertain if this is the preferred option rather than supporting a new name. RECOMMENDATION That Council 1. Authorise officers to undertake further consultation in writing to all property owners and residents in the area bounded by Bell Street, Upper Heidelberg Road, Banksia Street and Waterdale Road in relation to either renaming the affected area Ivanhoe or leaving the name of the affected area as Heidelberg Heights. 2. All surveys to include a reply paid envelope and indicate that due to the level of support to change the name of the affected area, non-responses to the survey will be considered tacit approval to support changing the name to Ivanhoe by adjusting the existing suburb boundary to include the area under consideration. 3. A report be prepared to Council on the outcome of the further consultation and the survey. ATTACHMENTS Nil

OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction of “enhance Banyule’s public and open spaces”. BACKGROUND Banyule City Council has a current lease arrangement with the Ivanhoe Grammar School (IGS) for the six playing surfaces and two club house located at Chelsworth Park which expires in November 2014. Lease negotiations between IGS and Council have been progressing with both parties meeting on several occasions to ensure the renewed lease incorporates Council’s, IGS and the community’s requirements. A petition regarding the lease of Chelsworth Park to IGS was submitted by members of the community at the Council meeting on the 7 October 2013. Proposed lease with IGS: The proposed lease with the IGS will include the existing use by IGS for the playing surfaces and associated facilities plus the addition of the three hard concrete courts located at Chelsworth Park. As per the previous lease, all facility allocations, bookings and maintenance of the grounds plus the hard courts will be administered and programmed by IGS and will be consistent with Council’s Allocation Policy 2011 – 2014. There will be no change to the existing public access to sports grounds within Chelsworth Park.

A petition regarding the lease of Chelsworth Park to IGS was submitted by members of the community, asking for full disclosure of financial commitments by IGS as well as disclosing to the community the lease details and park management in the future. The full prayer of the petition is as follows: “We request Banyule City Council to hold a well notified public meeting to explain and discuss the Chelsworth Park tennis Club lease and the new proposed Ivanhoe Grammar School overall lease of Chelsworth Park” “This information and discussion meeting should occur before Council further engages with the Community to draw up a lease arrangement for Chelsworth Park that” 1. Suits the local community and user groups. 2. Recognises the strong attachments the community feel to retaining Chelsworth as recognisably PUBLIC LAND. 3. Recognises the heritage, environmental and cultural significance of the land. 4. Provides an independent but community accountable body to arrange bookings for the park. 5. Provides for Council to continue to control the leasing of the park in a meaningful way and to manage bookings for existing users rather than hand over management of bookings to IGS. 6. Regularly audits and makes known amenity impacts on the community of the IGS and other user’s use of the park.

The petition was presented to Council at its meeting of 7 October 2013 with 182 signatures; since that time a further 302 signatures to the petition have been received. HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report. It is considered that the subject matter does not raise any human rights issues. CURRENT SITUATION Financial details regarding the lease between Council and IGS were made available at the Council meeting in November 2013. A community meeting for petition signatories and key representatives from Chelsworth Park sporting clubs will be scheduled for 19 February 2014. The meeting will provide information and an opportunity for stakeholders to ask further questions regarding the proposed lease arrangements. All petition signatories and Chelsworth Park sporting club representatives will be formally invited to the meeting. A frequently asked questions sheet (FAQ) is currently being prepared and will be sent to all petition signatories, Chelsworth Park sporting club representatives and will be made available on Councils website prior to the meeting of the 19 February 2014.

SUMMARY To consider four Ward Fund Allocation applications which have been submitted in line with the Banyule Council Ward Fund Policy. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “enable good governance and accountability with minimal risk”. POLICY Council allocates funds from its annual budget to provide an avenue throughout the year for Council to allocate small grants to groups and individuals, or towards projects or events that benefit the Banyule Community. The allocation of these ward funds is subject to the requirements of the Banyule Council Ward Fund Policy. Council recognises that there are community needs and requests, on a small scale, which occur throughout the year, which merit consideration and funding. These requests are usually not known at the time of the adoption of the budget. The establishment of the Banyule Council Ward Fund Policy allows Council the opportunity to fund those grant applications which meet the criteria of the Policy, and in accordance with the procedures set out in the Policy. A key requirement of the Policy is that all applications must support the delivery of the City Plan, be consistent with Council’s strategic directions and provide benefit to Banyule residents and community. HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited, restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report. It is considered that the subject matter does not raise any human rights issues. APPLICATIONS The following ward fund application/s have been received, and having received the support of the respective ward Councillor/s are submitted for approval by Council:

Previous Items Council on 22 October 2012 (Item 1.2 - Petition to change suburb boundary in part of Heidelberg to Eaglemont) SUMMARY Consideration to rename the area in Heidelberg that is bounded by Upper Heidelberg Road, Bell-Banksia Link, Studley Road and Banksia Street to be included as part of Eaglemont. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter.

HUMAN RIGHTS CHARTER In developing this report to Council, the subject matter has been considered to determine if it raises any human rights issues. In particular, whether the scope of any human right established by the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities is in any way limited, restricted or interfered with by the recommendations contained in this report. It is considered that the subject matter does not raise any human rights issues. BACKGROUND At its Ordinary meeting, 22 October 2012 Council considered a petition of 16 signatures. The petition prayer was as follows: “We the undersigned residents and ratepayers of the City of Banyule seek the name change of the area bounded by Warringal Place, Banksia Street and Upper Heidelberg Road from Heidelberg to Eaglemont. Prior to the construction of the Bell Street Link it was appropriate that the area be part of Heidelberg as the major roads were Upper Heidelberg Road and Banksia Street. However, since the construction of the Link the area has been isolated from Heidelberg and is more appropriately linked to Eaglemont. We therefore request Council to make representations to The Office of Geographical Names and any other relevant Government authority to ensure the name change

Council resolved that: “1. Council receives and notes the petition. 2. Further investigation of the petition request be undertaken. 3. Council and the primary petitioner be advised of the outcome.” The area under consideration was extended to include Remembrance Park to the east of Warringal Place (refer to Figure 1) after initial consultation with the Office of Geographic Names (OGN). On 20 August 2013, community consultation in relation to the proposed suburb name and boundary change commenced. This consultation was undertaken concurrently with another suburb naming proposal in relation to Heidelberg Heights. CONSULTATION On 20 August 2013, Council sent out a letter and survey to affected residents and property owners informing them of the proposal and requesting:  an indication of support for or objection to the proposed renaming;  reasons for their support or objection;  any further comments. Council also provided with the mailout a list of organisations and authorities they would need to notify of any address changes and who the Council and Office of Geographic Names would notify should the proposal progress further. Reply paid envelopes were included to encourage participation. The extended community was notified of the proposal and invited to provide feedback via a Public Notice in The Heidelberg Leader (3, 10 and 17 September 2013) and on the Banyule City Council website. The consultation period concluded on 27 September 2013. Results of the survey and consultation are shown in table 1 below. Table 1: survey summary

Subject Number of surveys sent out Number of responses received Number of non-responses In favour of change Against change

Response result 23 surveys were sent out covering 22 properties (includes all property owners/occupiers in area). 17 (~74% of 23) 6 (~26% of 23) 14 (~82% of 17) 3 (~18% of 17)

Various community comments were received during consultation and are summarised as follows:  General agreement with petition prayer.  Eager for name change.

Ordinary Meeting of Council - 16 December 2013

Page 76


Participation – Community Involvement in Community Life

 Properties in considered area are more similar to Eaglemont specifically in regards to neighbourhood character.  Current mail delivery inconvenience, for example couriers and other postage services do not consider Warringal Place to be part of Heidelberg.  Could cause potential rate rise.  Unnecessary change, waste of time, money and resources.  Dissatisfaction with initial petition and questioning what is driving the proposal. LEGAL CONSIDERATION Under the Geographic Place Names Act 1998, Council is a naming authority responsible for the development of proposals to name or rename any feature, road or locality within Council jurisdiction. Council must ensure that all proposals conform to the principles outlined in the Guidelines for Geographic Names. These Guidelines were recently updated in 2010 and 2013. TECHNICAL CONSIDERATION Using the Guidelines for Geographic Place Names and analysis of the community consultation received, the proposed boundary change would seem to conform to the Guidelines, would make sense to local residents, businesses and visitors to the area and is likely to be supported by the OGN. The area under consideration already shares the same postcode as Eaglemont and therefore no postcode boundary realignment is required. OFFICE OF GEOGRAPHIC NAMES Council officers contacted the OGN to outline the community’s position. The OGN suggested that the area under consideration should include Remembrance Park (being the area east of Warringal Place, along to Studley Road). DISCUSSION The consultation undertaken indicates that the local community in the affected area are supportive of a change of name from Heidelberg to Eaglemont. Several reasons have been presented in relation to this proposal, including that Bell-Banksia Link “divides” this area from the rest of Heidelberg and therefore the affected area is more connected with the neighbourhood area around Banksia Street in Eaglemont. Many also felt the neighbourhood character was consistent with the housing in the location south of Banksia Street. If a change of suburb name would occur, administrative updates to Council databases containing address details of the affected area would be required as well as adjusting hardcopy and electronic mapping systems to acknowledge the new suburb boundary location. Council would also be required to notify the following parties:  Local Australia Post offices  Local real estate agents  Gas, water and electricity suppliers  Local mapping agencies  Local police stations

 Ambulance branch  Metropolitan Fire Brigade Station  State Emergency Service local headquarters The OGN would notify the following parties:  Australia Post  Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority  Emergency Management Spatial Information Network Australia – (Victorian Committee) members including Ambulance Victoria, Victoria Police, Country Fire Authority, State Emergency Service, Department of Sustainability and Environment, Department of Justice and Department of Human Services  Real Estate Institute of Victoria  Australian Bureau of Statistics  Australian Electoral Commission; and  Melway, UBD and other spatial information or mapping agencies.  This information is also distributed through various networks to international organisations such as Google Earth and Microsoft Virtual Earth. Property owners and occupiers would need to notify:  VicRoads  Telephone providers  Internet providers  Insurance providers  Employers  Superannuation membership  Ambulance subscription  Centrelink  Pay TV accounts  Friends, family and other personal contacts  All banks and financial institutions, credit and store cards  Club and memberships  School and other educational institutions  Mailing lists and other subscription services  Online shopping accounts  Other persons, parties or organisations not mentioned above. This notification information was included in the consultation package mailed to property owners/occupiers. CONCLUSION Consultation indicates that there is strong community support to rename the affected area Eaglemont. The affected area already shares the same postcode as Eaglemont and therefore no postcode boundary realignment is required by Australia Post. The proposal appears to comply with the Guidelines for Geographic Place Names and is likely to be supported by the OGN. Renaming the affected area would require Council to adjust the Heidelberg and Eaglemont suburb boundary as well as undertake a number of administrative changes and notifications.

That Council: 1. Pursue the renaming of the area bounded by Upper Heidelberg Road, BellBanksia Link, Studley Road and Banksia Street in Heidelberg to Eaglemont and lodge the necessary submission to the Office of Geographic Names (OGN). 2. Advise affected residents of the Council decision on this matter. 3. Where required, advise relevant authorities of any address changes on behalf of residents and property owners in the affected area.

OPERATING FINANCIAL REPORT FOR PERIOD ENDED 31 OCTOBER 2013

Performance - Use Our Resources Wisely

SUMMARY Presentation of Operating Financial Report for two-months ended 31 October 2013.. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan objective of "manage our financial resources in a sustainable manner". BACKGROUND The Financial Report has been prepared on an accrual basis in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards. Council’s financial performance for the first four-months of the financial year is on budget and an operating surplus is likely to be achieved in the 2013-2014 financial year. The consolidated operating surplus at 31 October 2013 is $50,627,586 which is only $27,178 less than the estimated budget. This operating surplus to date, largely results from the full recognition of rates at the beginning of the financial year in accordance with the Accounting Standards. Small timing variances to date from the Capital Works Program exist, but they are insignificant. There are no other variances that exceed our significant variance thresholds. The financial results in this Report show a strong stability over the first four-months of the financial year. There have been no material variances identified in the last twomonths. Expenditure on the Capital Works Program is in close alignment with budgeted expenditure, with a variance to 31 October 2013 of less than $4,500. Property Reallocation Program Council’s practice is to provide details to the public in relation to property acquisitions and dispositions as soon as practicable after contractual matters have been settled. There have not been any property transactions that have been finalised during the two-month period from 01/09/13 to 31/10/13. Economic Data For the first four-months of the financial year all of Council’s investments have been held in high rated short-term Bank Term Deposits. Currently the Term Deposits are earning a weighted average of 3.36%. The earning rate has decreased 0.56% since 30 June 2013. Council is placing its investments in Term Deposits with major and secondary Banks. The investment interest rates offered by the Banks have less to

do with the movement in the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) official cash rate and more to do with the Banks’ requirements for money on any given day. The official cash rate as set by the RBA is currently 2.5% and has not moved since it was reduced by 0.25% on 7 August 2013. The previous change was a decrease of 0.25% on 8 May 2013. CONCLUSION At this early state in the financial year, it is generally considered too early for budget variances of significance to have taken place. No material variances have been reported. The economic data has been stable for the past few months. The investment environment has also been reasonably stable despite the slight drop in weighted average interest rates Council has been receiving on its Term Deposits. RECOMMENDATION That the Operating Financial Report for the period to 31 October 2013 be received. ATTACHMENTS No.

SUMMARY To provide a report on the current status of Councillor initiated motions. OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter. CITY PLAN This report is in line with Council’s City Plan key direction to “enable good governance and accountability with minimal risk”. BACKGROUND Resolution (CO2013/17) Council at its meeting on 4th February 2013 resolved the following Notice of Motion: “That 1. a report be submitted every two months at a Council meeting regarding the current status of Councillor initiated Motions. 2. This report to include:

 date of approved motion;  a summary of the motion;  action taken by officers regarding the motion and date of action taken. (this includes letters sent);  feedback regarding the motion.(particularly if referred to State or Federal MP’s).” The latest status report is attached (Attachment 1). This report provides the status update of Councillor motions from the commencement of the new Council term (November 2012) to the 18 November 2013. The report includes a status of whether the item has been completed or in progress, a short explanation and if the item is scheduled to come back to Council for consideration.

ADVOCACY Many of the Councillor generated motions relate to advocacy requesting to meet with our Local Members of Parliament or the relevant Minister to advocate on behalf of our Community. Some of these issues include road and transport matters and cost shifting from State and Federal Governments to Local Governments.

CURRENT SITUATION Councillors currently raise matters in the Chamber via motions or statements. There are 3 options for Councillors to raise a matter before the Council: 1. Notice of Motion (Council report and forms part of the Agenda paper) 2. General Business 3. Urgent Business A Council resolution is required for both Notices of Motions and Urgent Business items. Whilst General Business does not require a resolution of Council there may still be some action arising from this item and may be listed in this report. For the time period (19 November 2012 to 18 November 2013) there have been 76 Notice of Motions, 22 General Business Items and 16 Urgent Business items. Given that these items are generated by Councillors through the Council meeting process and often involve considerable investigation or deployment of resources the CEO will seek to prioritise the timeframe for a response to the NOM to ensure that they do not significantly impact on existing programmed workloads. Timing Currently the Councillor motions report is presented to Council every two months. For better reporting and to assist with the short time frames in compiling this report it is recommended that the reports be presented to Council every three months. CONCLUSION The latest status report is presented for noting and a report on the status of Councillor Motions be considered quarterly. RECOMMENDATION 1. That Council note the Councillor Motions Status Report and 2. A report to Council be submitted every three months regarding the current status of Councillor initiated Motions.

EXTENSION OF TRIAL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND INFORMATION SHARING PROGRAM

Author:

F2013/1202

TAKE NOTICE that it is my intention to move: 1.

“That Council allocate from its carried forward surplus an additional sum of $60,000 for the purposes of increasing its communications budget.”

Explanation One of the key learning’s from community consultation last year was that the community did not know a lot about the services and initiatives Council undertakes on their behalf. In an effort to increase the depth of information and to illustrate the breadth of services undertaken by Council a trial series of direct community engagement initiatives was developed. These initiatives developed with Councillors, the Community and Social Planning Unit and in conjunction with the Communications unit of Council have increased the access to Councillors, direct information sharing and increased Council engagement with the community. The success of this trial has been such that it is now recommended the scheme be expanded to all council events. As such there is a requirement for additional funds to be allocated for the materials and resources for the information initiative. These initiatives will include expanded letterbox drop information, regular advertorials in both the Diamond Valley and Heidelberg Leader, SMS update, an App and increased promotional and branding material for all Council run events and activities. The total increased cost has been quoted at approximately $60,000. It is hoped that this increase will aid in the Community’s understanding of the important work of Council.

TRAFFIC VOLUME INCREASE - EAST WEST FREEWAY PROJECT

Author:

Cr Tom Melican

Ward:

File:

F2013/947

TAKE NOTICE that it is my intention to move: “That: 1. Council writes to the Minister for Transport requesting full details of the Veitch Lisher report into congestion generated by the East West Freeway project and its’ impact on roads within Banyule; 2. Banyule Council does not support the East -West project until full details of this State Government report are made public and the impact on Heidelberg Road and Burke Road North are understood.” Explanation Council at its meeting on 2/12/2013 acknowledged that the East - West project would help ease traffic congestion within Banyule. There have now been reports that the details in the Comprehensive Impact Statement may not be correct and that feeder roads onto the Eastern Freeway will become more congested. The acknowledgement in Council's resolution may be wrong. We should seek full details of this report to help determine the impact on Banyule. Extracts of the report follow: 'The report, prepared by consulting firm Veitch Lister for the Linking Melbourne Authority in July, also shows roads feeding into the Eastern Freeway will carry thousands more cars within the next eight years when the road, connecting the Eastern Freeway to CityLink, is completed.' Morning peak traffic on Manningham Road, in Bulleen, is tipped to increase by a quarter by 2021. Kew will also be hit. Morning peak traffic on Earl Street, for example, is expected to surge by up to 41 per cent once the road is completed.

VEGETATION PROTECTION OVERLAY 5 Planning approval is not required for subdivision within this overlay. STATE PLANNING POLICY FRAMEWORK Settlement Clause 11 of the BPS outlines that: ‘Planning is to anticipate and respond to the needs of existing and future communities through provision of zoned and serviced land for housing, employment, recreation and open space, commercial and community facilities and infrastructure. Planning is to recognise the need for, and as far as practicable contribute towards:  Health and Safety;  Diversity and choice;  Adaption in response to changing technology;  Economic viability;  A high standard of urban design and amenity;  Energy efficiency;  Prevention of pollution to land, water and air;  Protection of environmentally sensitive areas and natural resources;  Accessibility;  Land use and transport integration.’ LOCAL PLANNING POLICY FRAMEWORK Municipal Strategic Statement Council’s Municipal Strategic Statement (MSS) sets the direction for land use and development in Banyule by identifying key planning elements for consideration and

nominating a series of objectives and strategies for each. The overarching vision of the Municipality is:

The relevant objectives encompass Environmental Management, Economic Development and Community Development and Support. There are five key elements within the strategy to achieve the vision and objectives. Those five elements are “Cultural Heritage, Land Use (housing commercial industrial and community facilities), Natural Environment, Built Environment and Transport. Each element contains key issues, objectives and strategies.

Clause 22.02 of the Banyule Planning Scheme outlines Council’s Neighbourhood Character Policy. The subject site is contained within the Garden Suburban Precinct 2. Public Open Space Strategy Council’s Public Open Space Strategy (2007-2012) was adopted by Council on 1 October 2007. Amendment C61 gazetted on 8 October 2009, restructuring Councils Municipal Strategic Statement and updating reference documents within the Local Planning Policy Framework. The Public Open Space Strategy is now a reference document at Clause 21.09-6. At Part 2.4 of the Strategy, the following objective is relevant to this application: To improve the quality and quantity of public open space within Banyule, in order to more effectively meet the needs of residents. The POS Strategy divides the municipality into precincts to ensure the needs of local residents and any local character which is unique to a particular area can be taken into account in the planning of public open space. The subject site falls within the Rosanna Precinct, which identifies the following open space issues: 

Continue to implement the various stages of the Rosanna Parklands Masterplan.



There are encroachment issues in Creek Bend Reserve that need to be addressed.



There is a need for dog waste bins in Creek Bend Reserve.



The need to address the lack of non park community spaces in Rosanna. There will be an opportunity to address this issue during the development of the Rosanna Neighbourhood Activity Centre Plan.



The area’s demographic projections for the next decade have implications for both park and non-park community spaces and infrastructure, as follow: (a) The overall population of Rosanna is expected to increase by about 7.5% (b) The population growth is expected to occur across nearly all age groups, which suggests that community infrastructure needs to be provided for a broad cross section of the community ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL ON 16 DECEMBER 2013 Page 307



(c) There is also a substantial ageing element to Rosanna’s population projections, almost 40% is expected to be 50 years and over by 2016, which offers a challenge to ensure that all public open space and community gathering places include appropriate infrastructure for this demographic and that it is fully accessible. The bush land aspects of Rosanna Parklands need to continue to be managed for their conservation values. The need to continue to work with Melbourne Water in enhancing the health and wellbeing of both Salt Creek and Banyule Creek.

By Design Public Library – Places and Spaces Conference. Date attended: 13 – 15 November 2013.

Attachment 1

Value of Conference/Visit – (Councillor Report): (Outline main purpose of the conference/visit. Attach copy of conference Agenda / itinerary)

The By Design Public Library conference was held in Sydney on 14-15 November. It included a half day tour of four libraries on 13 December. The conference was organised by Dr Alan Bundy of Auslib Press and attracted over 100 registrations. The conference was a tightly focused program of 20 international, Australian and New Zealand speakers, two panel sessions, targeted recommendations, and an information folder including a copy of the new edition of People Places: a guide for public library buildings in NSW. The conference explored the diversity of the roles and services of today’s and future public libraries; the implications of this for the public library’s location, accessibility, spaces and places; and innovation and best practice in public library location, architecture, interior design, technology and facilities. LIBRARY TOUR There was a library tour on the Wednesday afternoon that visited three public libraries and one academic library. All were new, having opened in the last 3 years. Two of the public libraries visited, Chatswood and Willoughby were more exercises in what not to do in a new building. Both had very big book collections and the overall impression with rows and rows of book shelves in a straight line with little or no attempt to make browsing a pleasant or serendipitous experience, was daunting.

ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL ON 16 DECEMBER 2013 Page 385


Item: 6.4

Attachment 1: Councillor Conference Report

Willoughby is a very large library which is laid out in a traditional manner. It has some interesting community spaces and the seating along the windows is a nice feature. In all the libraries we visited lighting has been used to good effect with a variety of interesting light shades.

6.4

Chatswood Library is next to a Westfield shopping centre and includes other facilities in the Civic Pavilion. It has a welcome desk, rather than a traditional circulation desk, but the change of name had not seemed to make much difference to the size, function or appearance of the desk. It is a large library at 5000sq m and they manage with 5 staff on the floor at any one time. They have the second biggest sorting machine in a public library in Australia. Some of the interesting features of the library were the Sustainability Education Centre, which was originally intended for the youth area, however Council was successful in attracting funding to set up the Education Centre; the multifunctional space where tables on wheels can be easily moved to make space for author talks; and the iBims Chinese catalogue which has been developed for their borrowers. The Children’s Library features a large Story Tree which is a nice touch. The library was at basement level but let light in through a large courtyard, which featured a striking sculpture of a boat.

Attachment 1

Ryde Library was the most interesting of the public libraries visited. The Library Manager was relatively new and had started after the building project had begun. The library was the result of a deal between the developer of a shopping mall and the Council. The shelving was designed to create subject rooms in what is a quite large library and many of the shelves are on wheels to allow for flexibility in space use. Books are arranged by genre and this is complemented by the use of identifying coloured spine labels. Nice design features included a starry roof in the Children’s library. Macquarie University Library is a new beautiful building which has some very nice seating options and many collaborative work spaces. The highlight of the library is the automated retrieval system which stores over 1 million items in random order and is able to deliver a book to a reader in a few minutes via a robot.

Key Messages/Highlights: (Outline issues raised by key note speakers or main themes discussed) The keynote speaker for the Conference was Rachael Van Riel, who is the Director of Opening the Book. Opening the Book devised the Frontline Reader Development training program that has been run from all Victorian public libraries. The essence of the program and Opening the Book’s philosophy is reader centred libraries. This has a big impact on how libraries should be designed to appeal to readers and to lead them to find titles they may not have known about. Opening the Book has done a lot of research about finding out what people want and their patterns of use by using statistics, asking customers, asking non users and observing customer behaviour. In the key note address the focus was on product and the importance it plays and that libraries must learn from retail. A libraries main product is still books, and most people still come to the library to borrow books. The books must come out to meet people and long stacks of shelving with wide aisles, is a thing of the past. In an open space people need a focus for the eye and in a reader friendly library; the books are what should be the focus. You also need to understand how people flow through a space. Spaces should be planned to draw people in; and you need to be aware of how sight lines work for customers. The type and use of shelving is very important. She highlighted that when designing a library, you should start with the shelving layout as a priority.

ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL ON 16 DECEMBER 2013 Page 386


Attachment 1: Councillor Conference Report

A technique ‘Opening the Book’ use when they are designing the layout of a library is to build scenarios and customers profiles and then use them in planning to check back on their assumptions. Never forget the invisible customer - the one who comes into the library and does not interact with staff. Display is the conversation you can have with those who don’t want to talk to you; observe and record the evidence when you are analysing your customers. She highlighted that in relation to square metre ratios, there is no other building which demands such different and conflicting needs as a public library. We must understand the importance of the retail model while creating buildings with a wider civic aspiration. We need buildings that are aspirational and beautiful but must also take notice of the retail experience inside.

6.4

Item: 6.4

Thought also has to be given to who gets the best space and why. Not all spaces are equal and this decision should not be left to the architect or designer, because it is a strategic political choice not an aesthetic one. Definitely don’t give the best space to the staff; nor to service functions.

She also challenged the family friendliness of libraries - although libraries are generally child friendly, most libraries and layout do not encourage family participation. She highlighted it is important to work with our buildings and let the building sing. The State Library of NSW has now produced three editions of the de facto standard for library buildings in Australia - “People Places”. This publication provides guidelines for assessing the size of buildings and the facilities required. In the new edition it has recognised the changing use of libraries, and now also includes the number of seats per capita, public Wi-Fi, and advice not to decrease the floor space for collections because of the increasing use of face out shelving and the creation of subject rooms.

Attachment 1

Have a proper debate about the style and colour of furniture. This will send key messages, so you need to think what you most want those to be.

The majority of presentations at the conference were case studies of new buildings by librarians and architects. One of the libraries was the Albury Library by Ashton Ragget McDougall Architects which is a convergence of spaces that houses a public library, a social and history museum and a research centre. There are minimal barriers between the three, they have their distinct zones but there is convergence. There are not a lot of examples of these converged facilities; one of the earliest was Puke Ariki in New Zealand. Peter Moeck is the architect who designed the renowned Mt Gambier library, recognised as one of the best public libraries in Australia. It is 1,900 sq m and was designed from the inside out - it is not a beautiful box with a library put inside it. Peter said that if your vision is right and you have the right budget the building will work. The Katoomba library in the Blue Mountains is a library and art gallery and Cecilia Kluger from CK Design was responsible for the fit out. She emphasised that the design brief should contain a strong vision incorporating local identity. They used the motif of the Three Sisters rocks in the Blue Mountains to design a set of three chairs which are a focal point of the building. She suggested that we engage a library consultant early in the project as they are aware of some of the issues particularly relevant to libraries, for example, acoustics can be a real problem. The ideal is to achieve a place that people love. She also said that the community must be engaged early and from every aspect. The brief needs to be evaluated, explored and ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL ON 16 DECEMBER 2013 Page 387

implemented; there should be feedback loop. They use elements such as lighting built into the shelves which is more flexible than the lighting only fixed in the ceiling.

Another architect, James Cubitt, went through the process of getting to a project brief and talked about the many ways of procuring a library building, either through traditional procurement of having an architect draw up the plans and then go out to ender for a builder; or a design and construct method. He said that there is no right or wrong way, but to be aware of the costs that can blow out from changing the design or the lack of flexibility of not being able to change the design during the building phase. Instinct Furniture gave a very engaging presentation. They have come up with several innovative pieces one of their most popular fills the need for people who never stop searching for the elusive cool, handy, safe power plugs. There is a yackety yack roaming station which has no cabling on show and he also showed us graphine - which is a wallpaper screen. There are lots of uses for flip tablets, nests, caves and lounges to group and ungroup.

One of the most practical sessions was given by Colin Matthews from QLS. The company specialises in shelving and returns solutions and he was warning us how we need to be very careful with tender documents; as the client (Council or Library) think that they have specified a particular product and then the builder changes the supplier because of the “or similar” clause inserted in the contract. All shelving is not the same; the Australian standards are well out of date and need revising. Current standards do not result in a good outcome. He recommended using vendors’ experience in assisting with design of solutions. Another practical session was by Alan Butters of Sybis, who explained the implications of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology and the ability for people with a smart phone to create significant problems with RFID tags in books. The most interesting talk over the 2 days was called “Place making and community values: an analysis of four recent libraries” by Richard Francis-Jones, Design Director of Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp NSW. Richard provided a compelling case for the importance of the public library as public space. He said that urban environments have become dominated by commercial interests and the retail pressure to purchase. They are characterised by placelessness, the disappearance of community and the domination of consumption. A remarkable exception to this is the rise of the contemporary public library. Its architecture can create a true sense of place and community. Most importantly, the library should express and embody precious community values and aspirations: openness, acceptance and equity. It was an inspiring talk by an architect who has been involved in a number of recent buildings including Blacktown and Surry Hills in Sydney and Craigieburn and Melton in Victoria.

Benefits to Banyule City Council: (Outline the benefits/learnings for Banyule City Council as a result of attending the conference/ visit) The By Design conference provided a lot of case studies and stories from librarians, architects, designers and vendors that will be very useful for Banyule in our future building projects.

Suggestions for Future Action: (If appropriate, include any suggestions for action that have resulted from the attendance) Key messages for consideration in future are:  “or similar” clause inserted in the contract, to be removed. ORDINARY MEETING OF COUNCIL ON 16 DECEMBER 2013 Page 388

Start with shelving design in mind as a first priority Think of the library product and how to responds to users Display is crucial What does family friendly mean? Ensure it design allows for family participation
