6.       Planning Authority Items - Consideration of Items with Deputations

 

In accordance with the requirements of Part 2 Regulation 8(3) of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the General Manager is to arrange the agenda so that the planning authority items are sequential.

 

In accordance with Part 2 Regulation 8(4) of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the Committee by simple majority may change the order of any of the items listed on the agenda, but in the case of planning items they must still be considered sequentially – in other words they still have to be dealt with as a single group on the agenda.

 

Where deputations are to be received in respect to planning items, past practice has been to move consideration of these items to the beginning of the meeting.

 

BRISCOE

 

That in accordance with Regulation 8(4) of the Local Government (Meeting Procedures) Regulations 2015, the Committee resolve to deal with any items which have deputations by members of the public regarding any planning matter listed on the agenda, to be taken out of sequence in order to deal with deputations at the beginning of the meeting.

Prior to first occupation or commencement of use (whichever occurs first), vehicular barriers compliant with the Australian Standard AS/NZS1170.1:2002 (or a structurally designed wall) must be installed to prevent vehicles running off the edge of the eastern end of the carport.

 

 

Advice

 

The Council does not consider a slope greater than 1 in 4 to constitute a lower level as described in AS/NZS 2890.1:2004 Section 2.4.5.3. Slopes greater than 1 in 4 will require a vehicular barrier or wheel stop.

 

Designers are advised to consult the National Construction Code 2016 to determine if pedestrian handrails or safety barriers compliant with the NCC2016 are also required in the parking module this area may be considered as a path of access to a building.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure the safety of users of the access driveway and parking module and compliance with the standard.

 

 

ENG 3a

 

 

The parking area and turntable must be designed and constructed in accordance with Australian Standard AS/NZS2890.1:2004 (including the requirement for vehicle safety barriers where required), or a Council approved alternate design certified by a suitably qualified engineer to provide a safe and efficient access, and enable safe, easy and efficient use.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure the safety of users of the access and parking module, and compliance with the relevant Australian Standard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ENG 3b

 

 

The parking area and turntable design must be submitted and approved, prior to the issuing of any approval under the Building Act 2016.

 

 

The parking area and turntable design must:

 

 

1.      Be prepared and certified by a suitably qualified engineer;

2.      Be generally in accordance with the Australian Standard AS/NZS2890.1:2004;

3.      Where the design deviates from AS/NZS2890.1:2004 the designer must demonstrate that the design will provide a safe and efficient access, and enable safe, easy and efficient use;

4.      Include full structural design and construction specifications of the proposed turntable; and

5.      Show dimensions, levels, computations, and other details as Council deem necessary to satisfy the above requirement.

 

 

Advice

 

Design plans to satisfy this condition must be submitted via the Councils online portal as an application for condition endorsement (CEP).

 

Once the design has been approved, the Council will issue a condition endorsement (see general advice on how to obtain condition endorsement).

 

Where building approval is also required, it is recommended that documentation for condition endorsement be submitted well before submitting documentation for building approval. Failure to address condition endorsement requirements prior to submitting for building approval may result in unexpected delays.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure the safety of users of the access and parking module, and compliance with the relevant Australian Standard.

 

 

 

 

 

ENG 4

 

The access driveway and parking module (car parking spaces, aisles and manoeuvring area) approved by this permit must be constructed to a sealed standard (spray seal, asphalt, concrete, pavers or equivalent Council approved) and surface drained to the Council's stormwater infrastructure prior to the first occupation.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure the safety of users of the access driveway and parking module, and that it does not detract from the amenity of users, adjoining occupiers or the environment by preventing dust, mud and sediment transport.

 

 

ENG 1

 

 

Any damage to council infrastructure resulting from the implementation of this permit, must, at the discretion of the Council:

 

 

1.      Be met by the owner by way of reimbursement (cost of repair and reinstatement to be paid by the owner to the Council); or

2.      Be repaired and reinstated by the owner to the satisfaction of the Council.

Any damage must be immediately reported to Council.

 

 

A photographic record of the Council's infrastructure adjacent to the subject site must be provided to the Council prior to any commencement of works.

 

 

A photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure (e.g. existing property service connection points, roads, buildings, stormwater, footpaths, driveway crossovers and nature strips, including if any, pre­existing damage) will be relied upon to establish the extent of damage caused to the Council’s infrastructure during construction. In the event that the owner/developer fails to provide to the Council a photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure, then any damage to the Council's infrastructure found on completion of works will be deemed to be the responsibility of the owner.

 

 

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure that any of the Council's infrastructure and/or site­related service connections affected by the proposal will be altered and/or reinstated at the owner’s full cost.

 

 

ENV 2

 

Sediment and erosion control measures, sufficient to prevent sediment leaving the site and in accordance with an approved soil and water management plan (SWMP), must be installed prior to the commencement of work and maintained until such time as all disturbed areas have been stabilised and/or restored or sealed to the Council’s satisfaction.

 

 

A SWMP must be submitted prior to the issue of any approval under the Building Act 2016 or the commencement of work, whichever occurs first. The SWMP must be prepared in accordance with the Soil and Water Management on Building and Construction Sites fact sheets (Derwent Estuary Program, 2008), available here.

 

 

All work required by this condition must be undertaken in accordance with the approved SWMP.

 

 

Advice

 

Once the SWMP has been approved, the Council will issue a condition endorsement (see general advice on how to obtain condition endorsement).

 

 

Where building approval is also required, it is recommended that documentation for condition endorsement be submitted well before submitting documentation for building approval. Failure to address condition endorsement requirements prior to submitting for building approval may result in unexpected delays.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To avoid the pollution and sedimentation of roads, drains and natural watercourses that could be caused by erosion and runoff from the development.

 

 

 

 

ADVICE

 

 

The following advice is provided to you to assist in the implementation of the planning permit that has been issued subject to the conditions above.

Advice:

 

 

It is noted that a solid side boundary fence / wall with a maximum building height of 2.1m above the natural ground level is exempt from requiring planning approval. Should you wish to construct a wall to this height it could be included in the building application drawings and would be considered to satisfy the above requirement.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

 

To ensure that development within a heritage precinct is undertaken in a sympathetic manner which does not cause loss of historic cultural heritage significance.

ENG sw1

 

 

All stormwater from the proposed development (including but not limited to: roofed areas, ag drains, retaining wall ag drains and impervious surfaces such as driveways and paved areas) must be drained to the Council’s stormwater infrastructure prior to first occupation or commencement of use (whichever occurs first).

 

 

Advice:

 

Under section 23 of the Urban Drainage Act 2013 it is an offence for a property owner to direct stormwater onto a neighbouring property.

 

 

Reason for condition

 

To ensure that stormwater from the site will be discharged to a suitable Council approved outlet.

 

 

ENG 1

 

 

Any damage to council infrastructure resulting from the implementation of this permit, must, at the discretion of the Council:

 

 

1.      Be met by the owner by way of reimbursement (cost of repair and reinstatement to be paid by the owner to the Council); or

2.       Be repaired and reinstated by the owner to the satisfaction of the Council.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A photographic record of the Council's infrastructure adjacent to the subject site must be provided to the Council prior to any commencement of works.

 

 

A photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure (e.g. existing property service connection points, roads, buildings, stormwater, footpaths, driveway crossovers and nature strips, including if any, pre­existing damage) will be relied upon to establish the extent of damage caused to the Council’s infrastructure during construction. In the event that the owner/developer fails to provide to the Council a photographic record of the Council’s infrastructure, then any damage to the Council's infrastructure found on completion of works will be deemed to be the responsibility of the owner.
