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.

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

Zone 1 at 25 Banksia Street EAGLEMONT on the following grounds: 1.

The proposal is not consistent with the relevant State and Local Planning Policy Framework, and more specifically should be strategically located within the medical precinct designated within the Heidelberg Specialised and Major Activity Centre as outlined within clause 21.08-2 of the Banyule Planning Scheme in which these types are uses are encouraged;

2.

The proposal is not in keeping with the character of the area and fails to sufficiently meet all of the objectives of the Clause 22.02 of the Banyule Planning Scheme and the Neighbourhood Character Strategy specifically as it relates to the siting of car parking within the front setback of the subject site whereby opportunity existing to improve the vegetated landscape making an improved contribution to the streetscape;

3.

The subject site cannot reasonably accommodate the need to relocate the provision of two car parking spaces that are proposed in the front setback to the rear of the site, thereby resulting in a parking deficiency prescribed by clause 52.06 of the Banyule Planning Scheme;

4.

The existing dwelling is non-compliant with is with clauses 54 and 52.06 of the Banyule Planning Scheme, in that the dwelling is deficient through lack of ability to accommodate an additional on-site car parking space, has a poor sense of address/ dwelling entry and no provision for secluded private open space. Any subsequent redesign and/ or reconfiguration of this space to be utilised in association with the proposed medical centre (eg. Storage) is deemed to be excessive recognising that the medical centre is to accommodate only two practitioners;

5.

The vehicle access and egress is deemed unsafe and inappropriate given the sites interface with two roads (Banksia Street and Lower Heidelberg Road both identified as being Road Zone (category 1) and contrary to the Decision Guideline within clause 52.06-9.

DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENT WORKS - 121 MALTRAVERS ROAD IVANHOE

SUMMARY The property at 121 Maltravers Road Ivanhoe is affected by stormwater flowing overland when flows exceed the capacity of Council’s drainage network. Drainage improvement works that will mitigate this issue have been identified and limited funding for these works was approved in Council’s 2013/14 Capital Works budget. As the funding allocated to this specific project is not sufficient to complete the works required, it is proposed that funding allocated to drainage improvement works at 20 Ashby Grove, are also used to complete these works. The property at 20 Ashby Grove has also been affected by overland stormwater flows in the past, but improvement works are not required at this location because the flows follow a natural drainage path and habitable areas are not affected by these flows. The justification for these works and the associated funding proposal, are outlined in this report. Resolution (CO2013/396) That Council: 1.

Abandons the proposal to conduct drainage improvement works at 20 Ashby Grove Eaglemont and the funds allocated for these works in Council’s 2013/2014 Capital Works budget are re-allocated to the drainage improvement works proposed at 121 Maltravers Road Ivanhoe; and

2. Proceeds with drainage improvement works proposed at 121 Maltravers Road Ivanhoe at an estimated cost of $75,000 to be funded from existing 2013/2014 budget allocations and a reallocation of funds from the proposed project at 20 Ashby Grove Eaglemont.

SCHOOL CROSSING UPDATE

SUMMARY Requests were received from Viewbank Primary School and Viewbank College for the provision of school crossings on a number of roads in the area surrounding each school. Pedestrian and vehicle counts conducted in May, July and August 2013 determined that Martins Lane, Banyule Road and Graham Road, Viewbank met warrants for a supervised school crossing. Additionally Warren Road, Viewbank, met the warrants for an unsupervised school crossing. Concept plans and preliminary costing’s have been prepared for each location it is proposed these projects be included in the Capital Works Program for future funding consideration. Seven school crossing sites have been identified as not meeting the warrants for ongoing crossing supervision. Council has made previous resolutions on three (3) of these sites. It is suggested to retain the supervision at these sites in line with Council’s previous resolutions. Of the four (4) remaining sites not meeting the warrants it is proposed to continue to fund one of these sites for safety reasons. The remaining 3 sites could have the school crossing These minutes are circulated subject to confirmation by Council at the next Ordinary Meeting to be held on 2 December 2013

EXTENSION OF TIME TO PLANNING PERMIT P760/2006 - 40 UPPER HEIDELBERG ROAD, IVANHOE

Mr Roger Fyfe spoke on the item. SUMMARY The proposal seeks an extension of time to a planning permit issued on 6 August 2007 for a mixed use multi-level development. The permit has previously been extended on two occasions. A change in planning policy has occurred since the permit was last extended through the adoption by Council of the Ivanhoe Structure Plan. This requires Council to consider whether the proposal remains consistent with planning policy prior to a further extension of time to the permit being granted. Resolution (CO2013/398) That Council: 1. Extend the permit timeframe for a further two (2) years. The development must now be commenced by 6 August 2015 and the development completed by 6 August 2017. The use of the land must also commence by 6 August 2017. 2.

This report identifies that historical flooding issues in the vicinity of Cressy Street and Orr Lane are largely due to the existence of a natural overland flow path within the vicinity. Despite this, it is considered that minor modifications to Council drainage inlet pits may reduce the likelihood and severity of flooding during heavy rainfall events. Resolution (CO2013/399) That Council: 1.

Consider constructing a new drainage pit in front of No.4 Cressy Street and providing two existing pits nearby with more efficient inlet structures in the 2014/2015 budget process with funding to come from the sale of 1 & 2 Orr Street, Montmorency;

2.

Consider the upgrading of five additional pits in conjunction with other priorities in the 2014/2015 budget process.

The annual cleaning of grated pit inlets, throughout Quinn Estate be included in Councils routine drainage maintenance program.
