Palerang appoints Rural Lands Study consultants By John Mitchell Palerang Council will ratify the appointment of four consultants for the Palerang Rural Lands study at its ordinary meeting this Thursday. The assessments and recommendations for appointment were made at meetings of the Palerang Rural Lands Study Committee (which includes all of the Palerang councillors, GM and senior planners and representatives of State Government departments with a stake in the region’s planning), held on 15 and 29 May 2014. Consultant planner At the 15 May meeting, the evaluation table for the quotations received for the consultant planner was discussed. It was agreed

that the system used for the evaluation of the price of the quotations was not satisfactory and the consideration of qoutations proceeded without reference to that part of the table. It was noted that deletion of this part of the table did not alter the relative rankings of the higher scoring applicants. The discussion on the quotations continued with some consideration of price but without the evaluation of price component in the table. The State Government representatives on the Committee advised that while they were happy to contribute to the discussion of proposals they would not participate in the voting.

Following discussion of the quotations, the Committee decided to use a two stage selection process and to hear presentations from the highest ranked consultants to allow time for staff to contact the nominated referees. There was some discussion

“..echoing (an unsuccessful) move by some of the developer majority on the last Council to allow councillors to nominate consultants.”

and one councillor asked that a third consultant should be added to the list, echoing (an unsuccessful) move by some of the developer majority on the last Council to allow councillors to nominate consultants. The committee resolved to invite only the two highest scoring consultants. For: Crs Harrison, Marshall, Hogarth-Boyd and Cockram. Against: Crs Graham, Hicks and Schweikert. Economic profile The quotations were discussed including price but disregarding the assessment of the quotation price in the evaluation table, and it was agreed that Strategic Planning Solutions be appointed to undertake the economic profile.

For: All councillors. Revised Native vegetation map The quotations were discussed including price disregarding the assessment of the quotation price in the evaluation table. The committee considered that Umwelt can achieve the required time frames and the quotation priced is within Council’s budget and agreed that Umwelt be appointed to undertake revised native vegetation mapping. For: All councillors. Aboriginal cultural heritage The quotations were discussed including price, but disregarding the assessment of the quotation price in the evaluation table. It was noted that the majority of quotations did not include a fee for consulation

with members of the Aboriginal community. The councillors agreed that OzArk be appointed to prepare the Aboriginal cultural heritage map. For: Crs Harrison, Marshall, Cockram, Hicks, Graham and Schweikert. Against: Cr Hogarth-Boyd. Cr Graham abstained. The Committee deferred discussion of the terms of reference to the first open committee meeting. The draft Terms of Reference are to be placed on Council’s website prior to the open committee meeting. The committee also deferred discussion of the draft Communication Plan to a later committee meeting to enable the selected planning consultant to participate.

Less red tape in fire areas

Member for Monaro, John Barilaro, discussing a building project Press Release Local families building new homes can save $800 under new arrangements for approvals in bushfire-prone areas, which put safety first while making it easier and cheaper to build and remove duplication, the Member for Monaro John

Barilaro said recently. The changes remove the need for local home-builders to do an assessment of bushfire risk when they lodge their DA to build if the Rural Fire Service (RFS) has undertaken an upfront assessment of bushfire risk at the subdivision stage.

Currently, those building homes on bushfire-prone subdivisions have to undertake their own assessment even if the RFS has previously given the subdivision the tick of approval, adding approximately $800 to the cost of building a new home. The changes will only be allowed if strict conditions are met, including: •The land is not at high risk of bushfire; •Approval has been given by the RFS which allows building in bushfire-prone areas, known as a Bushfire Safety Authority – this will now include a plan showing the bushfire

attack levels and conditions future houses must meet; •A Post-Subdivision Bushfire Attack Level certificate, which is issued by the RFS or suitably qualified consultant, has been issued; and •The authority in charge of approving the new home, such as the local council, is satisfied the building complies with any conditions that have been put in place by the RFS “This is good news for local families who now have the choice of having detailed bushfire assessments completed up front, meaning local home-builders no longer need to worry about lodging an individual bushfire report if strict conditions are met,” Mr Barilaro said. “$800 might not sound like a lot, but ask any family building their new home and they will tell you that at the end of the day even saving a small amount can go a long way. Currently bushfire-prone land maps of new release areas are updated every five years by local councils meaning they may not always be accurate. The announced changes will mean the RFS can now directly update these maps when required ensuring their accuracy with the most up-to-date information. The changes only apply to land in urban release areas in 40 local government areas and will not affect development in existing subdivisions in bushfire prone areas.

“$800 might not sound like a lot, but.. at the end of the day, even saving a small amount can go a long way. ”

Bungendore School at Queanbeyan Reconciliation Walk

Confirmations@St Thomas' Carwoola

Last Tuesday teachers Mrs Read and Mrs Leggett joined with 42 Bungendore Public School students and attended the Reconciliation Walk at Queanbeyan.

By Karen King In a normally quiet corner of a Carwoola paddock stands the large majestic 150 year old building of St Thomas' Anglican Church. On Sunday 18 May, this worship centre was filled with much activity and an air of excitement and celebration. Few seats remained as the regular Bungendore Anglican Church congregation, family and friends joined Anglican Bishop Stuart Robinson at a Confirmation Service to celebrate and witness five teenagers profess their Christian faith, and confirm the baptismal promises made on their behalf more than a decade earlier. By the end of the service the fog lifted, warmth filled the air, and the old paddock sprung to life. People continued the celebrations while enjoying a social occasion with morning tea, BBQ brunch, jumping castle, kite making, horse shoe throwing and other outdoor activities.

Mike Kelly throws hat in ring By John Mitchell The former member for Eden Monaro, Dr Mike Kelly will be seeking Labor Party preselection to contest the seat at the next Federal election. In an entry on his Facebook page Dr Kelly said, “For those of you who have been asking what I am going to do next, I can tell you I have now made up my mind. I have been mulling this over for eight months and thought very carefully about it. “My mind has been made up in the last few weeks after watching the Commission of Audit and this brutal Budget, on top of everything else we have seen from the Abbott overnment. I have also watched Peter Hendy as our Member and been appalled by

his total lack of passion and commitment to our region and community. “As a result I have decided to put my name forward for pre-selection to re-contest Eden Monaro. “I will not sit idly by while this region is savaged and its future stolen. I also want to take a stand against the sort of Australia Abbott and Hendy want us to become. It would be a vicious Darwinian landscape where it is the survival of the wealthiest with a marginalised underclass. “If successful in pre-selection I will be asking you to help me restore us to the Australia we want to see and to get us back on track to unlocking the extraordinary potential of our region and people,” Dr Kelly said.

Press Release The Bungendore Primary School P&C has received a cheque for $1,897.55 from IGA Bungendore. The funds are the result of the 2013 community chest campaign and were accumulated from March, when the store transferred to the IGA group, until October 2013. Darren Heathcote, the owner of the store, explained that under the community chest scheme a portion of the sale price on products designated with a blue community chest ticket are accumulated by IGA, to be distributed to nominated local community groups or charities. These funds are in addition to other sponsorship and donations we make to the local community.

Mel Swan, President of the P&C said, “the supermarket has a great history of supporting the P&C and this donation will help us continue our efforts to supply additional resources to our school. At present, we are assisting the school with shelving and containers to store sports equipment in the new sports shed that P&C purchased for the school. We are continually amazed at the generosity of the Bungendore community. Darren has continued to be a major sponsor to our school events, and we appreciate his generosity.” The supermarket is interested in hearing from any other community groups or charities that are looking to become involved in the 2014 campaign and beyond.

Cub Scouts visit Federal Police

COMMUNITY EVENTS IN THE PALERANG DISTRICT

By ‘Akela’ Debbie Simms Recently, a group of 40 excited Cub Scouts, parents and leaders, had an experience not many ‘civilians’ get to do–a tour of the Australian Federal Police (AFP) International Deployment Group (IDG) facility at Majura. The facility is accredited by the United Nations (UN) to train and equip personnel for deployment. Our tour started by loading all the children into several troupies (the parents followed about 20 minutes later) and winding up a 4WD track to our first stop, the rock climbing and high ropes training area. From there it was onto the ‘village’–a replica of a typical village on a Pacific island-where Sgt Shane

Baker explained all the equipment officers are provided with for their training and deployment. One of the items was a small tent and our troupie drivers did an impromptu demonstration of how quickly they could put up a tent (although I think some of our Scouts would give them a run for their money). We then had a walk through the ‘main street’ discussing how the facility, and the village in particular, is used as a training facility for capacity development programs across 15 Pacific Island countries, security and stability operational missions, and UN missions. A quick hello to some visiting officers from Kiribati and then back into the troupies to wind past several Island-style P6

Solstice Celebration@Bowlo Falls Prevention Program By Vince Skeehan The Bungendore Bowling Club will be hosting a Solstice Celebration and Bonfire on Saturday 21 June, the shortest day in the southern hemisphere. The winter solstice itself lasts only a moment in time. At 8.51pm AEST the axial tilt of our planet will see the Sun returning to our 'clime'. Help is needed to build the bonfire over the next few weeks. I'm looking for suitable materials to be dropped off at the back of the Club in Turallo Terrace. Follow the signs to the Stockpile area. Fence posts, palings, timber, branches and logs. More wood=bigger fire.. Material will be sorted and graded. Great care is being taken again this year to build a 'stable fire' so that nothing rolls out past the safety perimeter

Our local Scout Club is selling soup and has arranged a fire twirling demonstration. There will be jaffles and a sausage sizzle along with mulled wine and hot toddys plus a full bar service. The children can enjoy the fairy grove and make their own clothes peg fairy at the craft table. We will hail the effigy of the Pumpkin King sitting on the top of the fire and call for good fortune and favor in the coming change before the fire brigade sets the torrid tower alight at 6.30 pm.

Press Release Queanbeyan Community Health will begin the next Falls Prevention Program 'Stepping On' at the Bungendore Community Centre on Thursday 7 August, from 1.30pm. This free NSW Ministry of Health initiative is designed for people who are living at home, aged over 65, who have fallen or are fearful of falling. “The group runs for two hours each week for seven weeks, followed by a refresher session two months later,” said Jenny Thorek, Stepping On facilitator.. “It’s to help older people maintain independence and give them confidence in their mobility so they are able to undertake their everyday activities safely and without the risk of falling.” The program includes educational sessions, simple group exercises and an opportunity to socialise with other participants.

Each session covers a range of topics including vision, medicines and practical exercises to improve strength and balance. “This program, which was developed in NSW, is considered to be one of the most effective falls prevention programs available,” said Ms Thorek. “It gives people the confidence to undertake their everyday activities safely.” Stepping On presenters Jenny Thorek and Jo-Ann Taylor are excited to continue to offer the program and said the course can offer real benefits to local elderly men and women who are living at home and are active in the community. “We are taking applicants now for the next group in August which will be our third program to run in Bungendore,” said Ms Taylor. For further information, or to book a pre-assessment, please call Jo-Ann Taylor on 6298 9306.

Australian Child Care Week will be held from 16 to 20 June and Bungendore Kids Zone has planned an extensive program of events and activities, starting with the official opening on Monday 16 June at 9.30am. Families and the Community are invited to join us for the opening or at any time during the week. Our program of events is displayed at the Bungendore Community Bank. Heather Hubbard of the Bungendore RFS and her team will speak to the children about fire safety on Wednesday 18 June at 10.00am. See you all at Child Care Week!

up the process which was costing Council dearly. These motions were voted down. By the way, it is laughable to claim, as does Genevieve Cransie ('Not a developer in sight,' also Mirror 28.5.2014) that the R5 lobby saved us all from being prohibited from grazing stock in the rural residential areas without a DA.This mistake was quickly picked up when the draft PLEP went on exhibition and there was no resistance whatsoever from Councillors past or present about correcting what was effectively a planning typo. Judith Turley, Palerang Councillor 2008-2012

I refer to your editorial 'Will proper planning or influence peddling win?' Mirror 14.5.2014 Those of us who have followed the antics of Council (both staff and the majority of Councillors) during the PLEP process, question whether a proper planning process has been followed. Be that as it may, we all have a democratic right to draw to the attention of those who are elected to represent us, matters that cause us concern.We have drawn our concerns to the attention of Councillors, our Local Member and our Federal Member. In the event, Council has chosen not to listen whereas both our Local Member and Federal Member have. Mr Barilaro has every right

to take a position on this, and any other issue brought to his attention. In this case, he is obviously convinced that the decision by Council to the blanket application of environmental protection zoning across all rural residential land currently zoned 1(d) is inappropriate and is inconsistent with the view of the majority of his constituents affected by the decision. As to the matter of influence peddling, there are no better examples than the editorial in question and similar editorials in the District Bulletin where editors take advantage of their privileged position to push a personal agenda in an attempt to influence their readership.

Cub Scouts visit Federal Police P5 huts with spectacular views over Canberra. We finished the tour with a drive past the National Canine training centre and a look at an army helicopter and talk on how it is used for training. At the end all the Cubs were given a drink bottle and CD to remember their visit. 1st Bungendore Cubs would like to sincerely thank all those at the AFP IDG who were involved in our visit, especially Team Leader Geoff Wiley, Sgt Baker and the drivers. In the words

of the Cub Scouts–it was ‘awesome’. As a result of that visit, when the AFPIDG needed to upgrade their GPS units, Sherridan Robertson, from Administration and Operational Support, thought of our group. "It seemed a waste to throw the GPS units out and I thought your Scouts could put them to good use when they go on hikes, canoe trips and the like," said Sherridan. 1st Bungendore would like to sincerely thank the AFPIDG for their generous gifting of the seven GPS units. 1-2-3 WOLF.

R5 opens development door

Reinstate grading program

Genevieve Cramsie ‘Not a Developer in Sight,’ Mirror 28.5.2014, takes exception to my stand against an R5 zoning of Bywong/ Wamboin, and I need to point out a few facts in regard to this. Residents of Wamboin/ Bywong should be aware of what R5 zoning is really about. The 'Standard Instrument' of NSW Planning gives four objectives of R5, of which the first two are of immediate significance. To provide residential housing in a rural setting while preserving, and minimising impacts on, environmentally sensitive locations and scenic quality. To ensure that large residential lots do not hinder the proper and orderly development of urban areas in the future. Mrs Cramsie is selective in mentioning only the first of these objectives and ignores the second. The whole purpose of R5 zones is to allow for orderly development of residential districts around existing towns and villages and into the surrounding rural areasthat is expansion of urbanisation into the rural setting of the surrounding countryside. This is the crux of concern with R5 in Bywong/Wamboin, and it would be naïve in the extreme to think that if this area is zoned R5 that extensive development would not eventually follow. Otherwise why adopt such a zone type? R5 also allows for 'greenfield' establishment of urban areas such as has been provided for by Yass Valley Council near the Federal Highway. This is quite appropriate in that situ-

I am writing to implore Palerang Council to reinstate its grading program to at least what it was in the past (double or more the number of gradings per year), because the current and future viability of the Mongarlowe/Charleys Forest area, and possibly the whole shire, depends on it. Every time the road crew comes to grade the road, it rains straight afterwards and no matter how great a job the

ation since it allows for future development of infrastructure at the junction of the Highway with an important route into the Yass shire. I’m encouraged by Mrs Cramsie’s assertion that R5 supporters would have been happy with an RU zoning (Primary Production) but, as she correctly points out, NSW Planning did not make this available for use when Council was developing the LEP. While I am comfortable with E4 zoning for Bywong/Wamboin it is clear that R5 supporters are not. However, rather than campaigning for the inappropriate and development oriented R5 zoning, the anti-E4 group could have used their considerable lobbying resources to request the Department make an RU zone available for this area. This action would be quite consistent with their stated desire to maintain the rural/ residential character of Bywong/ Wamboin as is the situation with the present 1(d) zoning. In regard to her remarks on perceived restrictions on agricultural activities etc. under E4, I was disturbed by the 2012 council proposal to place restrictions on grazing and livestock, and communicated my concerns to them; there should be records of this. I applaud all residents who expressed objections to this (now defunct) proposal, including- on that issue- the 'Leave us alone Palerang' group. Council sensibly changed its position to reflect the general concern and their policy on agricultural activities is now concisely explained in Fact C3

crew has done, new potholes are formed within days. I can't speak for other areas of Palerang, but I have observed that the Cooma Road hardly ever gets graded, and the Krawarree area isn't receiving nearly enough rain. The effects of climate change are already bad enough, without adding to our rainfall woes by an infrequent grading program. Catherine Moore, Charleys Forest road, Charleys Forest

Zoning will not be studied The effects of climate change are already bad enough without addding to our rainfall woes by an infrequent grading program.” C2 Sheet 9 which clearly states that livestock grazing etc for commercial purposes will be allowed without consent in areas zoned E4. There is no ambiguity in this Fact Sheet as indicated by Mrs Cramsie, and her remarks on keeping pet horses, and sheep etc for home consumption refer to an explanatory paragraph pointing out that such non-commercial activities will also be allowed in E4 (and other) zones as is the case under the present 1(d) zoning. Genevieve Cramsie also stated “There is no evidence at all that supports his perspective that a rezoning to E4 will increase the carrying capacity of his land.” I will not argue this point, but the

potential extensive development implied by R5 would not be conducive to agriculture oriented activities in the area. Degradation of stream and groundwater quality is the likely first casualty, and it’s not difficult to envisage other negative effects. To conclude, R5 offers nothing over E4 so far as preserving rural/ residential character of Bywong and Wamboin is concerned, but instead opens the door for urban development which would be anomalous and inappropriate for the whole area. The beneficiaries of an R5 zoning of Bywong/ Wamboin will be developers, not the ordinary residents. Bob Angel Mountain Road, Bungendore

In your editorial 'Will proper planning or influence peddling win?' (Mirror 14.5. 2014), you refer to Council’s rural land study which is currently under way and your expectation that discussion on the E4 zoning issue would be reopened when the study is completed. It was also my understanding, along with a large section of the community and indeed a number of Councillors, that the study would be used to inform Council on the validity of its decision to rezone all areas of land currently zoned Rural Residential 1(d) as the Environmental Protection zone E4. We too believed that Council had made a commitment to revisit the issue on completion of the study. I would like to draw your attention and that of your readers to written advice received from Council’s Director of Planning and Environmental Services on this subject which states that, “It

should be noted that the Palerang Rural Lands Study project directives do not include determining land use zones as this was the role of the project concerning the development of the draft local environmental plan.” The Mayor delivered this same message (that the Rural Lands Study and the zoning issue are unrelated) to the meeting of the local branch of the NSW Farmers Association in Bungendore on 15 April 2014. It therefore seems that despite its commitment to the community to the contrary, Council now has no intention of revisiting the land zoning issue regardless of the outcome of the Rural Lands Study.

This wombat has been captured and is being relocated By Philip Machin Sometimes wildlife gets into the wrong place. We all know about possums in the roof and the difficulty in removing them. Over the last few months, Wildcare has been called out to capture and relocate a number of wombats that had moved into the Queanbeyan suburbs. Left alone, and after some time, they would normally move on, but Wildcare gave them a helping hand and returned them to a nearby wombat habitat. It is thought that development at Googong and elsewhere may have been the trigger for some wombats to wander off into places they would not normally be seen. The flooding of creeks and rivers in 2009/10 also caused wombats to disperse to unlikely places, often many kilometres away. Another example of the movement of wildlife can be seen in Canberra. Large areas, of traditional wildlife habitat, have been developed for new housing and roads. This has caused animals to hop and wander off to places nearby – including other built-up areas. Whether it is in Canberra or elsewhere, it often seems where culling has taken place, other animals can migrate into the vacuum created. In our own backyards we occasionally see a snake in the ‘wrong place’. This can be worrying for people who don’t know their behaviour–we often think snakes will turn and attack us, but nothing

could be further from the truth. Snakes are shy, and defensive. They don’t want to be near either our companion animals or us. Left alone snakes will move on and you won’t see them again. Dogs, cats and stock animals, that are free to roam over large areas, are inquisitive and come across snakes, thereby being at much greater risk. At home, dogs are safer if they are contained in a fenced run. The risk of cats being bitten can be much reduced by keeping them inside the house (particularly at night when they can cause a lot of damage to other wildlife too). Fortunately the chances of encountering a venomous snake are small, however Wildcare is on hand to give advise and help if needed. The bottom line is that wildlife can be seen in the ‘wrong place’, but more often than not, left alone it will move on. We just need to be tolerant and patient. But if you need help, contact Wildcare on 6299 1966–put this number in your Mobile phone. As we come to the end of the financial year, think about donating to Wildcare and get a tax-deductible receipt–visit www.Wildcare.com.au to see how this can be done. Wildcare has no paid staff – the service is entirely manned by volunteers. Donations directly pay for veterinary bills, medications, equipment and specially formulated milk – all needed to fix up injured and orphaned wildlife.

Press Release Proving en plein air painting is anything but plain are artists Kerry McInnis and Kate Stevens; Monaro-based artists who are all in the running to win the 2014 NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize. Their works are competing against 40 others for the $20,000 Prize, which will be announced on 18 June at the Parliament. Now in its 7th year, the NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize is one of the only landscape painting prizes to showcase the tradition of en plein air painting- a style requiring the artist to

paint entirely out of doors, where they are continually challenged by all the shifting lights, compositions and conditions that Mother Nature can conjure. Carwoola artist Kerry McInnis’s work, Snowy River, and Braidwood’s Kate Steven’s work titled Boppings Crossing, are stunning examples of the genre, and showcase the creativity and variety of contemporary plein air painting. The free public exhibition at Sydney’s Parliament House features all 42 finalist works and a Salons des Refuses of

the semi-finalists. It opens on Tuesday 10 June and runs through until Friday 1 August 2014. Entry is free, and doors are open Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 5.00pm. “The Monaro is home to many talented artists and it’s pleasing to see two of them being considered for such a prestigious prize,” said Mr Barilaro. “Both entries are outstanding and reflect two unique locations within the Monaro; I look forward to seeing the outcome.” The winner will be announced at the Parliament

Press Release Bungendore Pony Club's annual event was held at the Bungendore Showground on Sunday 25 May. Almost every year the club holds a One Day Event which involves three phases for each rider and horse combination; Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country. Normally riders must pass each phase in order to continue to the next, however this weekend Bungendore Pony Club gave riders a chance to excel at their chosen discipline. Each participant was given the choice of competing in the whole O.D.E, a combination of two phases or just one phase. There was over 80 entrants, with some coming all the way from the South Coast just to use the excellent facilities and eventing course in Bungendore.  The club also held a major raffle which was drawn at the completion of the day's activities. On behalf of Bungendore Pony Club I would like to thank all the wonderful sponsors for their prize donations."

Tigers fell apart towards end

Tiger Steven Death in full flight against Yass

By Tony Rayner The Infigen Energy Bungendore Tigers played Yass at Yass last Saturday. After leading 12-nil at half time, the Tigers lost 16-20. Throughout the game the referee only pulled the sides back five meters and did not control the ruck. This allowed the Yass side to slow down Bungendore's attacking options, turning the match into a very long, slow game. Having said that, the Tigers should have adapted to those conditions. Instead they let Yass back into the game through some silly handling errors and by not completing their sets in the second half. Towards the end the Tigers side fell apart and Yass broke through to score a try in the last minute of the game and to clinch the game.
