The Bugle

13 July 2019

A fortnightly celebration of peope and places on the Upper South Coast of NSW Serving the communities of Kiama, Gerringong, Jamberoo, Kiama Downs, Minnamurra and Gerroa and now at www.thebugleonline.com

Ward opposes sand mine plans Minister Gareth Ward, the Member for Kiama, has put his weight behind community protests against the expansion of Boral’s sandmining operations to land around Dunmore House. “I strongly stand alongside our community in opposition to a proposed new sand mine at Dunmore. “When Boral were granted consent in 1999 for sand mining – around one kilometre away from the new proposed site – they were approved for a four stage project only. “The company is now seeking to amend an existing consent to add a fifth stage that was never foreshadowed in their initial application. “I would also point out that this proposed new sand mine does not appear on the chief planning document for our region – the South Coast Regional Strategy. “Concerns around the impact on our local environment are well founded, given one pit is incredibly close to our local waste disposal facility and another larger 27 metre deep pit is extremely close to endangered ecological communities such as Bangalay Sand Forest and the sensitive salt marsh. “Our environment is important to our community and I will have more to say on this matter when Parliament resumes. “This matter is being handled by the Independent

Planning Commission which is similar to a court. The Commission will arrive at their decision based on facts and planning law. “For the reasons above, I believe this application should be rejected.” Community opposition to the proposal appears to be growing, with around 1000 people turning out in force on Minnamurra Headland to show register their protest. They heard speeches from Friends of the Minnamurra River’s Richard Maitland, Councillor Kathy Rice, Gerroa Environmental Protection Society’s Warren Holder and Upper House Independent Justin Field, before voting unanimously to endorse the motion: “This meeting of some 1000 concerned residents of Kiama, Shellharbour and the wider community present are totally opposed to any sand mining proposal in the flood plain and on land adjacent Riverside Drive adjoining the Minnamurra River. “We are in full support of both Shellharbour City Council and Kiama Municipal Council who are strongly opposed to this proposal.” The crowd then used their bodies to spell out their opposition to the two new proposed pits, details of which have been reported extensively in earlier editions. Boral’s Quarrying General Manager in NSW, said in

Revised plans for the redevelopment of Kiama Village, to enable the inclusion of an ALDI and other speciality shops, were lodged in late June with the submission period ending on 12 July. The new proposal seeks to address concerns about traffic and pedestrian safety Continued on page 6 raised by its original DA.

It removes the potential bottleneck caused by having a pedestrian crossing at the Terralong roundabout, diverting pedestrians along a designated pathway and crossing within the underground carpark to a travelator or lift. The new plans continue to propose access to the

carpark via both Terralong Street and Meares Place. Amongst other things, they also introduce retail space fronting Terralong Street, and modify the materials and colours used in the design. Residents of Meares Place are concerned that the substance of their submissions Continued on page 9

Learn about birds & bugs Well known Gerringong identity Andrejs Medenis will be sharing his knowledge of local birds and wildlife at the next meeting of the Gerringong and District Historical Society. Andrejs has lived in the Gerringong area nearly all his life, following in his father Artis’ footsteps as a veterinarian. As a child his interest in birds and wildlife was aroused by his father’s copy of the massive Reader’s Digest Book of Australian Birds, full of beautiful illustrations, which lay on their coffee table. His talk will feature the many photographs of birds and bugs that he has taken in the local area. He is keen to share his interest in natural history to inspire people to be more aware of their surroundings. Details: Saturday 27 July, Gerringong RSL Hall, Fern and Belinda Streets, 1pm. Followed by afternoon tea and a meeting of the Society. Visitors welcome. Gold coin entry.

Monthly doses of live comedy at PK If you didn’t catch the cult variety show She’ll Be Right at the Servo in Port Kembla, the good news is that its creators, Kiama’s Diana McLaren and Malika Elizabeth, are now offering two comedy productions a month at bigger venues in PK (as the cool people call it now). All Good will be on the third Saturday of each month, at the newly refurbished Vault cabaret venue. The first show will feature the winner of this year’s Melbourne Raw Comedy Festival, Fady and Make-

donka Stolovia, fresh from three sold out shows at the Sydney Comedy Festival. The show will be hosted by KISS Art’s Dave Evans, and feature other local acts.

Library now solar powered Council’s first large scale commissioning of solar panels on one of its properties has been hailed as a success, even in the shorter days of the year. The 32.3 kW system was installed on the roof of Kiama Library in mid-April, and is expected to reduce energy consumption at the facility by 20 per cent. “We need a full year to see just how effective the new system is,” says Council’s Manager of Environment & Health, Paul Czulowski. “Any savings will be returned to the Revolving Energy Reserve until the capital cost has been paid for, thus helping to fund more panels across other Council properties.” The next systems to be rolled out will be for the new Blue Haven Bonaira and the new library in Gerringong. Structural load issues are making installation at the Leisure Centre problematic, and investigations are continuing about the impact of sea spray on any system at The Pavilion. A small system is already operating at the Council Administration Building, but it will not be expanded until the fate of the building and site is decided. “We are waiting for the price of batteries to come down before we take the next step and invest in them,” says Mr Czulowski. Installing solar power was one of Council’s commitments when joining the Cities Power Partnership.

Making the most of Public Access The June Council meeting approved a revised Code of Meeting Practice, to incorporate both mandatory and non-mandatory provisions of the State Government’s new Code of Meeting Practice. The most obvious change to meeting procedures is that all votes, not just for planning matters, will have to be decided by a show of hands. Another important change is to the Public Access Guidelines, to increase the number of possible speakers on particular topics being brought before Council on the following night. Instead of the number of individual speakers being limited to 10, there are now 10 speaking slots (which can be shared by people). The disadvantage of the limit of 10 speakers was demonstrated at the July Public Access, when the Kiama-Jamberoo RSL applied too late to speak about keeping the ANZAC logo on the Lighthouse. “The previous Code of Meeting Practice could have

resulted in a maximum of three items being discussed and public access being limited to 25 minutes,” says General Manager Kerry McMurray. The change gives The Bugle a chance to shine a light on the rules governing this important opportunity, which are not known about as commonly as they should be. Public Access provides community groups, members of the community or their representatives (eg. lawyers, town planners) an opportunity to verbally plead their case with councillors before a decision is made. It must relate to an item listed in the Business Papers for that month’s meeting, which include development applications, policy positions, planning changes, spending decisions or any other wide variety of issues that need endorsement by Council. Public Access is scheduled for 5pm on the Monday Continued on page 12

Forum on holiday rentals This month’s Kiama Central Precinct meeting will consider the sometimes vexed question of holiday rentals, and the disturbance they can bring to neighbourhoods. The discussion will centre around ways to implement Chapter 12 of the Kiama Development Control Plan. Councillor Neil Reilly will discuss the problems and the ways other councils along the coast have dealt with them. Invitations have gone out to all the councillors. At time of writing, Councillors Andrew Sloan and Kathy Rice have also said they will attend. Details: Tuesday 23 July, Joyce Wheatley Community Centre, 7pm

Vote to fund local community projects

In a novel twist, a decision on how to allocate the $260,000 each State electorate is to receive through the NSW My Community Projects grants program is to be decided by online popular vote. After identifying yourself as being from the Kiama electorate, you can vote by ranking up to five projects you’d like to see come to fruition. At time of writing, The Bugle is aware of two applications for funding from the Kiama LGA. We will feature any others in our next edition. One is from Jamberoo Public School, seeking just shy of $44,000 for the school-wide installation of solar panels. “Solar energy is a great way for the school to shine – money saved through lower power bills will be used to provide essential educational resources and equipment

ing elements such as ropes, swings, balance beams, a flying fox, water play areas, dens and climbing challenges. In seeking Council backing to site the playground in a public reserve, the group said, “The development of such a playgound would be a shining star for the region. “We imagine that this development would be a showpiece that other councils would look to model their future natural playground projects upon, not only in respect to the residents, but also for tourists visiting the Kiama community.” Details: To help our local projects get across the line, go to mycommunityproject. service.nsw.gov.au Voting opens on 15 July and closes on 15 August.

that will benefit all of the school’s students,” says the P&C’s Nicole Reilly. “The project will allow our community’s young people to see first-hand how sunlight is converted into electricity and how they can play a powerful and leading role in reducing our carbon footprint. “The School will also engage local tradespeople and service providers to ensure this innovative sustainability project supports the local economy as well as our local environment.” Another project seeking community support is from a group led by Annette Pust, which is seeking $150,000 in funding to design and construct a nature playground in Bonaira Native Garden. The group has Council sponsorship for its proposal, which would see Kiama gaining a challenging play space for children, includ-

Rural land controls coming

Many ways to support

The highlighted need to add specific controls for dog breeding and boarding establishments to the Development Control Plan (DCP) for rural and environmental management zones has raised the need for other permissible land uses to also be covered. The lack of specific controls for dog breeding was noted when two facilities were recently approved. The July Council meeting approved these other permissible land uses as being in need of specific controls: • agri produce industries • animal boarding or training • cellar door premises • extractive industries • farm buildings • open cut mining • stock and sale yards • roadside stalls. The intention is to amend the existing Chapter Six Rural Development of the DCP so that it contains all the controls for permissible agricultural, industrial and residential land uses in the rural and environmental management zones.

As one of the first fundraisers for the Children’s Medical Research Institute, CMRI Gerringong always makes a big effort to raise funds through the national Jeans for Genes campaign. “By supporting our Jeans for Genes endeavours, you will be helping scientists at the Children’s Medical Research Institute to make further ground breaking progress,” says Lorraine Peade. “For example, a drug CMRI developed to treat epilepsy may also cure kidney disease – an unexpected discovery that has the potential to save millions of people from the need for transplants and dialysis. “Whether you can spare $1 or more, you can help the scientists continue their research.” Continuing with tradition, tickets are also being sold for a quilt that has been designed, made and donated by the Kiama Quilters’ Guild. “It features denim and a range of bright colours that will appeal to all ages,” says Lorraine.

As a regular visitor to Kiama since the 1950s, I am writing regarding the logo remaining on Kiama Lighthouse. I spent last week in Kiama and was looking forward to seeing the lighthouse restored to its original condition, with the logo removed as was promised when it was ‘temporarily’ applied. As a member of an organisation for the preservation of historic buildings I am appalled that anyone on council is unable to see the inappropriateness of this logo. Vandalism doesn’t just mean graffiti tags on walls, it applies too when a totally inappropriate addition is made to a public or historic building. When I first saw this logo my initial reaction to it was that it was vandalism, regardless of the words used. Hence I was looking forward to being able to once again take photographs of the lighthouse on this visit, something I have refused to do since the logo was applied. The lighthouse is NOT a war memorial, Kiama has a perfectly adequate one already. If the Kiama-Jamberoo RSL wishes to add another they are at liberty

Over the last two years, Gerringong Rotary’s Dance Away Dementia has become a popular program for participants and carers alike. “We now have well over 50 participants (including carers) from Blue Haven Care, Uniting Mayflower Gerringong and Shell Cove Warrigal Care, as well as local residents who live independently,� says Rotary’s Crista Wood. Its success means the organisers are after more volunteers to help get everyone onto the dancefloor.

“There is no special dancing ability required as our Dance Teacher Phil Lowder provides basic dance steps at each session. “It’s great fun.� The dances are generally held on Friday afternoon, starting at 2pm and finishing at 3.30pm, after a well deserved afternoon tea. The next five week session will start in late August.

Songwriting legend heads Folk By The Sea line-up Iconic Australian singersongwriter Neil Murray heads a stellar line-up of 51 acts for this year’s 6th Folk By The Sea Festival, to be held in Kiama in September. Murray’s songs have been recorded by artists ranging from Missy Higgins and Powderfinger to Adam Brand and Jimmy Little, while his best known song is Christine Anu’s version of his anthemic My Island Home. The song featured at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Murray, who helped form the ground-breaking Warumpi Band in 1980, is currently touring Australia performing songs from his latest album Blood & Longing, as well as his classics like My Island Home and Good Light in Broome. Folk By The Sea’s Rod Cork says organisers are thrilled to have a performer of Murray’s standing to head this year’s Festival. “Neil Murray really is one of Australia’s finest con-

Remembering Charmian Clift On the 50th anniversary of her death, Charmian Clift has been remembered not only as one of Australia’s greatest writers, but as someone whose life and writings were strongly influenced by her experience growing up in Kiama. Those experiences, good and bad, were discussed at a Remembering Charmian event, organised by Kiama Library and the Kiama & District Historical Society. They are also the subject of a new guided tour app

(see box), developed by the Library’s Rebecca Cook with the help of Clift’s biographer Nadia Wheatley and Sue Eggins of the Historical Society. Ms Wheatley’s book, The Life and Myth of Charmian Clift, was acknowledged by the other speakers as the definative work on Charmian, based on 20 years of research. Born in 1923, at what is now 1 Hothersal Street, but was then the last house on the highway heading north,

Charmian never fitted in for a variety of reasons. Although her English father was the engineer at Bombo Quarry, he didn’t hold with social standing and chose to live in a rented house in what was considered ‘the wrong end of town’. With their love of classical music and literature, they were also considered an oddity by their quarry worker neighbours. While their neighbour’s children went to school at Bombo, the Clift children went to Kiama Public, where they were excluded for being different by the other children. “Charmian was smart, and

Kiama Library makes it easy to learn more Kiama Library has developed two new resources to help readers discover the work of Charmian Clift. The first is a new walking tour app to guide locals and visitors around twelve Kiama locations that influenced her writing. The app features audio readings from her works that are related to particular stops. “Quite a few of Charmian’s characters in her novels draw from her experiences in her youth, and the settings of the unique Kiama landscape that were a backdrop to her early years,” says the Library’s Rebecca Cook. The app can be downloaded for free onto Apple or Android devices. Search for Kiama Library Tours. The Library has also compiled a special book club kit designed to generate discussion about Charmian’s life and works. The kit includes several of her novels (Images in Aspic, Mermaid Singing and Walk to Paridise Gardens), the novel she co-wrote with George Johnston (High Valley), her collected essays (The World of Charmian Clift), Nadia Wheatley’s biography, and Paul Genini and Tanya Dalziel’s recent account of her time on Hydra, Half the Perfect World.

Selling or buying a property represents one of the biggest financial transactions most people will undertake and achieving the right price can be one of the hardest and most stressful things to do. Learn from these expert tips: n Use the services of a reputable real estate agent who has strong local industry knowledge. Your agent needs to be capable, have strong negotiation skills, but importantly be someone you are comfortable with and trust. n Act on the offer in a timely manner. A protracted, drawn out negotiation process can cost you in the long run as the buyer can get frustrated and decide to seek alternate properties or the seller may decide to go with a better offer that comes along. n For buyers and sellers, a successful negotiation starts with an offer in writing first. n Seek advice from those qualified to give it, not just family and friends. For sellers n Be realistic, set your price based on fact, rather than emotion and listen to what the market is telling you. n Listen to your agent. n Take into account the conditions of the buyer’s offer, not just the price. For buyers n Have your finance in place and do your research and homework. n Be prepared to consider paying a little bit more for a good property in a good area.

ALDI edging closer on the original proposal have not been addressed in the new plans. They are particularly concerned about the amount of traffic coming off the top level car park onto their quiet residential street. “The traffic assessment was done in July and the acoustic report in August, so they both significantly underestimate the effect of expanding the centre,” says a spokesperson. “The new plans have no elements to mitigate the noise or light pollution, with even the existing sound buffer of trees being removed. “There is a total lack of consideration for the residents of our street and their amenity. “We feel it hasn’t been taken into account at all.” In a nutshell, for those

from p1

who haven’t seen the plans, the existing building will be retained, with the ALDI and other new shops basically taking up the existing car park area between the Reject Shop and Terralong Street (as well as the current location of the medical centre and other shops). The lower carpark will be under this retail level, and the rest of the site, with the upper carpark built over the lower carpark (east of the expanded centre). The redevelopment will result in 89 extra car spaces, and increase retail space by 40 per cent. Once approved, the project would be staged to minimise inconvenience. Woolworths and the existing shops will continue to trade throughout the redevelopment.

Remembering Charmian Not fitting in, combined with intelligence, led to difiant and rebellious behaviour that outraged conservative Kiama. Her beauty was her ticket out, as the prize money for winning a PIX Magazine beach girl photo competition in 1941 allowed her to escape to the big city. She became a journalist and at 23 began her lifelong relationship with George Johnston, then a much older and famous war correspondent. They worked together and separately on novels, achieving recognition and status for their work. Famously, they ruled over a Utopian clique on the Greek island of Hydra, even offering friendship to a young Leonard Cohen. Her friend, the artist Cedric Flower, who knew her in

In the Schoolgrounds This term at Gerringong Public School we learnt about Sustainability in other countries by doing an amazing travel project. A few weeks back we started on a project we called the Travel Expo. We all choose to research a country with a sustainability idea and created a poster or website about it. We had to research the weather, native animals, sport, food, capital cities, transport, attractions and so much more. Some students even made food from their country using recipes they had researched. It was important to research what sustainable practices that country is using and include how we could learn from this country and use their ideas back here in Gerringong. For instance in Denmark there are a lot of bike paths and a big push to ride your bike around instead

of using your car. We looked at where we could put in more bike paths around Gerringong to encourage bike riding. At the Travel Expo each group set up their project on a table. Some tables had a computer with their website on it and some paper with facts about their country on it. Others had a cardboard poster with pictures and information about their country. They would also have a slide show playing and maybe some food to try. The travel Expo was a fun learning experience for us and helped reflect on our learning. I think this is a great idea and that they should do this at other schools too. I enjoy learning about the environment and how we can help Gerringong become more environmentally friendly and sustainable. One of the project tables Summer Lea, Year 5

London, the Greek Islands and Sydney,was quoted as saying, “To me Charm was always just the girl from Kiama.” Ms Wheatley agrees, “Wherever she was, her homeplace was always in her head.” In a novel, referring to her house on the wrong side, she wrote, “I’ll show the bastards on the right side.” Her work was also full of what she loved about Kiama - particularly the beach and ocean, and its freedom. In the last years of her life, she was one of the most influential newspaper columnists in Australia, and the news of her suicide at just 45 shocked the nation. The event was also an opportunity to encourage people to appeal to her publishers, Harper Collins, to put her work back in print.

Postcard home On a road trip through the Baltics we found ourselves in a Soviet era hotel for two nights in Rezekne, a town in Latvia with four times the population of Kiama. Our big bright white hotel stood on the crossroad of two respectable roads. But venture a hundred metres off either road and you were immediately on a rutted dirt track with shabby wooden houses on either side. The only other buildings of any substance were a magnificent opera house that would be the pride of any capital city, and churches. There was nothing on at the opera house and most of the people we saw – old men riding old bicycles in their wedding suits from the fifties, or old women sitting on the market roadside with a pile of turnips – didn’t look like the opening night crowd. So on Sunday morning we did a tour of the churches. First stop was a very impressive old red brick Catholic Church. We slid in the back door and were amazed. It was full. Men and women, old and young, and a smattering of children. We squeezed into a pew for a few minutes but had to leave as the priest settled into a droning sermon. You

quite tiny but crammed with exquisite silver and gilded icons. Just one extremely old lady there, ready to hand out immaculately washed and ironed headscarves to anyone who forgot theirs. The bright green synagogue next to the town’s market was a sad affair. It was closed and we couldn’t help reflecting that the Jewish population of Latvia was reduced by 90% during the Holocaust, now standing at about 4,500. Next up was a Lutheran Church, startlingly neoclassical outside, but suitably austere inside. Again, no sign of any Sunday service, but, to be fair, it did seem to be under reconstruction. Finally, across the don’t need to understand the language road, another Catholic Church.

Public Access before the Council Meeting (usually on the 3rd Tuesday of each month), and can last up to 90 minutes. When holidays fall on that Monday, Public Access is held prior to the Tuesday meeting, at 5pm. Individuals or groups must register to speak at Public Access by calling 4232 0402 between 9.30am on the Friday before the meeting and 3pm on the Monday of Public Access (or three days before a Special meeting; or by 11am on the Tuesday when the Monday is a holiday). Slots are limited to a maximum of five minutes in their presentations. It is a case of first in best dressed when allocating spots on the speaking schedule, so best to register as soon as you know the matter is in that month’s Business Papers. This timing is notified to people who have made submissions on DAs, but those following other issues need to be vigilant when the Business Papers are posted on Council’s website (usually the Thursday before the Council meeting). You do not have to have made a submission on a matter to apply for a slot. The new rules provide for a maximum of ten speaking slots, with a limit of one slot supporting and one slot

opposing an item (the opponent always speaks first). It is permissible for the slot to include multiple speakers, to be negotiated with the person first obtaining the slot. If someone has a slot ‘against’ an item, it doesn’t mean a spot is held for the ‘for’ argument. The Mayor has the right to limit the number of presentations in total, or the number of presentation on any one issue, to avoid duplication of points of view. Unless arranged beforehand, the presentations will be streamed live on Council’s website. Other rules include: • presentations are made verbally. PowerPoint images can be used to support the case. • no new information is to be introduced when speaking about DAs • written material is not to be circulated at the meeting, but can be circulated to councillors by staff if it is lodged with them before 4pm on the day of the meeting. At the end of each five minute speaking slot, councillors are allowed to ask questions of the speakers. The matters dealt with in Public Access are dealt with first at the Council Meeting.
