Executive Summary

The purpose of this report is to present Councillors with a Planning Proposal which seeks changes to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010). It is proposed to resolve several policy matters, contemporise certain elements and undertake minor changes.

Council’s resolution is sought to endorse and forward the Planning Proposal to the Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) with a request to issue a Gateway Determination.

Background

Council officers have undertaken a review of LEP 2010 and identified various matters which require amendment. A Planning Proposal has been prepared which seeks changes to LEP 2010 to resolve several policy matters, contemporise certain elements and undertake minor changes. The various changes are proposed to be consolidated and progressed as a single amendment to LEP 2010, known as an Annual Update Planning Proposal.

 

Resolving these matters will provide a more accurate planning instrument and reduce the potential for delays, should development be proposed where the identified matters exist. The consolidation of these matters as a single set of proposed changes provides for a more efficient use of time and resources to amend LEP 2010 compared to proceeding with individual planning proposals for each individual change.

The Planning Proposal

The preparation of a Planning Proposal is the first step in the Department of Planning and Environment’s (DP&E) Gateway Process for making or amending Local Environmental Plans (LEPs). Changes are recommended to the LEP 2010 written instrument and LEP 2010 map tiles.

 

There are 16 items in total proposed to be changed. The proposed changes may be grouped under the following categories:

Policy changes – 6 items

Minor changes – 10 items

 

Details of each proposed change to LEP 2010 are provided at Attachment 1.

3.   Council officers will liaise with DP&E and other stakeholders to negotiate any changes sought to the Planning Proposal by DP&E in the lead up to the Gateway Determination.

 

4.   DP&E will issue a Gateway Determination, being an authorisation that the LEP plan making process may proceed. The Gateway Determination will, amongst other things, provide details of the public authorities that Council must consult and the requirements for undertaking the public exhibition.

 

5.   Council officers will make any necessary changes to the Planning Proposal prior to public exhibition in response to the conditions of the Gateway Determination and negotiations with public authorities and other stakeholders.

 

6.   Council officers will publicly exhibit the Planning Proposal in accordance with the requirements of the Gateway Determination and in accordance with the community consultation requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000.

 

7.   Submissions received on the public exhibition for the Planning Proposal will be reviewed, and recommendations prepared for Council’s consideration.

 

8.   A further report will be presented to Council following the public exhibition of the Planning Proposal, where Council would have an opportunity to endorse the Planning Proposal.

 

9.   Should Council endorse the Planning Proposal, Council officers would forward the Planning Proposal to DP&E to make the LEP amendment.

 

Conclusion

Executive Summary

Council is in receipt of a Planning Proposal to amend Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010). The Planning Proposal relates to land known as Orchard Hills North.

 

This report seeks Council’s endorsement to sponsor a Planning Proposal to rezone land and amend planning controls to facilitate residential development, including open space, riparian and biodiversity corridors, and a neighbourhood centre.

 

The site was shortlisted as part of Council’s Accelerated Housing Delivery Program and has the potential to deliver up to 1,900 dwellings.

 

The Planning Proposal if endorsed by Council will commence the Gateway Process through the Department of Planning (DPE). This process requires a Gateway Determination, the preparation and public exhibition of the proposal.

 

Background

 

At the Ordinary Meeting of 27 November 2017, Council considered a report on the Accelerated Housing Delivery Program which investigated potential sites for new release housing delivery over the next 5 years. One of the sites shortlisted included Orchard Hills North.

 

Council officers subsequently undertook extensive consultation with the proponent of Orchard Hills North and relevant government agencies to facilitate lodgement of a Planning Proposal. On 27 March 2018, Council received a Planning Proposal from LegPro (Legacy Property) which seeks to amend the planning controls prescribed by Penrith Local Environment Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) for a 146.1ha site located at Caddens Road, Kingswood Road, Frogmore Road and Castle Road in Orchard Hills, known as Orchard Hills North (the rezoning area).

 

Due to the future potential development of the rezoning area, the proponent has prepared a structure plan beyond the rezoning area that includes land to the west (to The Northern Road). This is to ensure that future land uses and key road connections for the entire Orchard Hills North area are planned in a holistic manner. The structure plan area is approximately 263.09ha in size.

 

The rezoning area contains a total of 54 existing lots and consists of multiple land holdings. It is understood that Legacy Property control approximately 70% of these holdings. Due to the extent of Legacy’s control of land holdings, the rezoning area applies only to a portion of the structure plan area.

 

A location map identifying the rezoning area and broader structure plan area is provided at Attachment 1. Details of the affected land parcels for the rezoning area are presented in Attachment 2. 

 

At present the rezoning area is zoned RU4 Primary Production Small Lots under LEP 2010 and is utilised predominantly for rural residential lifestyle properties.

 

The Planning Proposal

 

The Planning Proposal for the rezoning area will provide between 1,700-1,900 new residential lots, with a forecast population of approximately 5,400 people. It is anticipated that the first dwellings would be delivered in 2021.

 

A broad mix of housing types would be delivered as follows:

·    Traditional detached residential lots (300-600sqm)

·    Smaller compact and attached housing lots (125-300sqm)

·    Environmental living (2,000sqm)

 

The provision of affordable housing and community facilities is proposed and will be developed with the proponent during the Gateway Process and ahead of exhibiting the proposal.

 

A neighbourhood centre of approximately 6,000-8,000sqm of retail floor space is proposed to service the new community, this would support approximately 274 direct jobs. Medium density housing is also proposed around the neighbourhood centre and adjacent to the Werrington Creek recreation corridor.

 

A new site for the existing Orchard Hills Primary School is proposed adjacent to the neighbourhood centre, supported by open space to facilitate share usage.

 

Approximately 20.87ha of local open space is proposed, consisting of 7 local parks (combined total area 5.09ha), 4 bushland parks (combined total area 3.73ha), a central riparian corridor at Werrington Creek (area 6.09ha), and playing fields (5.96ha). A 4.03ha conservation corridor is proposed at Claremont Creek. Pedestrian and cycle links would be delivered throughout the development.

 

The playing fields would be situated in the south-east of the rezoning area, adjacent to Claremont Creek and consist of 2 rectangular fields/1 oval, 1 rectangular field acting also as a water basin, an amenities building and car parking.

 

The Claremont Creek biodiversity corridor in the south-east of the development is to be preserved for its biodiversity value. Large lot housing and bushland parks would be situated adjacent to this corridor, which are sympathetic to its environmental values.

 

Water basins and two large detention ponds and are proposed throughout the development for stormwater management.

 

The rezoning area’s 3 heritage items and their curtilages are proposed to be retained.

 

The proponent’s proposed structure plan for the development may be found at Attachment 3.

 

Key considerations

 

Urban Investigation Areas and Greater Penrith to Eastern Creek Growth Area

 

Under the Greater Sydney Commission’s Western City District Plan the site is located within an Urban Investigation Area and also the broader Greater Penrith to Eastern Creek Growth Area. The site is therefore identified as a key area for future residential opportunities and development. The Planning Proposal has undertaken the initial investigations to show that the site is suitable for development and can be serviced with state and local infrastructure.

 

The Western City District Plan has located Orchard Hills North within an Urban Investigation Area and the Greater Penrith to Eastern Creek Growth Area. The proposal is consistent with these nominated areas, and strategically, future urban development of the site can be considered.  The site’s location, adjacent to the existing Caddens urban release area, along with the immediate availability of trunk utility services and the proximity of existing and future transport, educational, health and community services, mark it as an ideal location to accommodate future development. 

 

Open space and recreation

 

The proponent proposes approximately 20.87ha of local open space in the form of 7 local parks, 4 bushland parks, a central riparian corridor at Werrington Creek, and playing fields. This equates to 14.91ha of passive local open space and 5.96ha of active local open space.

 

Council’s adopted local open space provision rates of 1.64ha/1000 people for passive space and 1.4ha/1000 people for active space, when applied to the anticipated population of 5,400 people for Orchard Hills North, would require 8.856ha of passive space and 7.76ha of active space.

 

Council officers are considering the proponent’s open space offer and note there is a 1.6ha shortfall in active open space. The proponent seeks that the shortfall is met through a monetary contribution which would be allocated towards the embellishment or upgrade of a nearby facility.

 

The final configuration of the proposed playing fields in the south-east of the rezoning area is still being resolved between Council officers and the proponent. Numerically, a minimum of 3 playing fields are required to serve the anticipated community, however the proponent is proposing 3 fields but is seeking to use one field for a dual purpose use and as a water detention basin.

 

Due to the topography of the rezoning area and the cut and fill required to deliver playing fields, the proposed location is considered to be the most appropriate.

 

A monetary contribution would be sought to meet a shortfall in local open space if required and appropriate.

 

Riparian corridors

 

Claremont Creek

 

The Claremont Creek biodiversity corridor in the south-east of the development is to be preserved for its biodiversity value and zoned E2 Environmental Conservation. Adjacent to the corridor is proposed a large lot housing area to be zoned E3 Environmental Management, which allows for dwellings and development that is sympathetic to the environmental values of this area. A 2,000sqm minimum lot size would be applied to the large lot housing area to restrict intensification of development. Bushland parks are proposed adjacent to the corridor to assist in preserving the environmental values of this area.

 

Werrington Creek

 

The proponent seeks to reconstruct the Werrington Creek central riparian corridor for passive recreation purposes. Although this is supported, Council officers are of the view that consideration should be made to widening this proposed corridor to ensure meaningful width and improved connection to the existing corridor in Caddens to the north. It is anticipated that this matter will be further addressed post Gateway Determination in consultation with relevant stakeholders and relevant State agencies.

 

It is noted that the proposed new LEP 2010 clause in Part 6 (Urban release areas) seeks to provide for a flexible boundary between any 2 zones of 50m. This would allow for some flexibility in the determination and delivery of corridor width at the Werrington Creek central riparian corridor.

 

Traffic and transport

 

The proponent has undertaken a Stage 1 traffic and transport study which includes the rezoning area and structure plan area. The study is strategic in nature, in order to identify the key issues and opportunities of the site and to assist the scoping of detailed traffic modelling required for the Stage 2 traffic and transport assessment to support the Planning Proposal. Council, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) have agreed that the Stage 2 assessment is to be conducted post-Gateway determination.

 

The Stage 1 study has identified that the site has a number of opportunities, being:

·    The proximity to arterial roads, and excellent connectivity and access to the surrounding regional road network.

·    Multiple access points from Caddens Road and The Northern Road.

·    Improved access due to the Werrington Arterial Road upgrade.

·    Increased capacity and improved access due to The Northern Road upgrade.

·    The Structure Plan can provide a local street network to support and access the development.

·    Existing bus services can be extended and re-routed to provide improved coverage.

·    Streets can be designed to cater for off-road shared paths to integrate with the surrounding street network.

·    Development and implementation of sustainable travel initiatives.

 

The Stage 1 study and associated modelling identified that:

·    The development site at Orchard Hills North is well-placed to leverage off significant government investments in road network and public transport improvement that have been completed, committed or planned.

·    There are some expected levels of increase of traffic on the regional / state road network, with the highest likely increase at Great Western Highway (East of Gipps Street), The Northern Road (north of the M4) and The Northern Road (north of Maxwell Road).

·    The M4 Motorway and its interchange at Gipps Street will be experiencing some congestion during the peak hours in 2036.

·    On the local road network, network impacts are contained mostly at Caddens Road, Cadda Ridge Drive, Castle Road, Frogmore Road, O’Connell Lane / Street and Kingswood Road. The traffic modelling also confirmed that all local streets are forecast to carry traffic within capacity of two lane roads.

 

It is anticipated that a multi-agency steering group will be convened, including members of TfNSW, Council, RMS and the proponent, to facilitate the preparation of the Stage 2 traffic and transport assessment and associated traffic modelling.

 

Stormwater and flooding

 

Any anticipated flood impacts from existing creek lines can be addressed by providing an adequate corridor width along Claremont and Werrington Creek to contain the flood waters without impacting upon the residential lots. It is proposed that a series of above-ground dry detention basins be adopted as the water quantity treatment devices for the proposed development, provided at strategic locations across Orchard Hills North. Detailed flood modelling will be undertaken and submitted post Gateway Determination.

 

A range of water sensitive urban design techniques may also be adopted as part of the proposed development for the management of stormwater runoff, such as Gross Pollutant Traps (GPTs) and bio-retention raingarden systems, as water quality treatment devices.

 

Community facilities

 

The provision of community facilities are a vital component of social infrastructure needed for future communities. Given the small size of community facility appropriate for the forecast population, along with the development's proximity to the planned Caddens facility, it is proposed that an offsite contribution for expansion/embellishment of this facility is considered more beneficial than a smaller facility on site.

 

Scenic values

 

The visual analysis presented in the Planning Proposal outlines views to or from the area, together with the necessary appropriate development and planning controls to mitigate any visual impacts. Overall, the majority of the site has either low to medium visual sensitivity and that any prevailing characteristics and views of the site can be managed through appropriate development controls for the site. A Development Control Plan (DCP) will support the Planning Proposal at exhibition.

 

A topographic map of the site is provided at Attachment 4.

 

Heritage items

 

There are 3 heritage items located within the rezoning area, being:

·    Brick Farmhouse (Item 155), located at 80-88 Caddens Road, Orchard Hills

·    Orchard Hills Uniting Church (Item 156), located at 3 Frogmore Road, Orchard Hills

·    Lindfield (Item 845), located at 182-188 Caddens Road, Orchard Hills

 

Due to the undulating topography of the site and the surrounding context, the heritage items are generally elevated and feature as prominent elements in the landscape. The items have been included within the Structure Plan for the site. The visual curtilage around the items will be retained, with the potential of creating a wider curtilage around some of the items to take in the views of the rural setting. 

 

Council’s Heritage Advisor considers that the proposed curtilages around the heritage items are reasonable and acceptable for the preservation of minimum landscape buffers around the heritage buildings and structures. Each of the lots immediately adjacent to the four heritage sites do allow for sufficient landscape buffers that will allow for the planting of deep rooted trees.

 

Local developer contributions

 

Legacy Property intends to prepare a contributions plan in conjunction with Council once a Gateway Determination has been issued.  It is expected that the contributions plan will incorporate the following elements:

·    Dedication and embellishment of local open space

·    Upgrade of local roads and intersections outside the rezoning area

·    Delivery of key collector roads within the rezoning area

·    Monetary contributions towards district/regional active open space

·    Monetary contributions towards a community facility (should one not be provided on site)

 

It is envisaged that the following items will be delivered by developers as part of general subdivision works:

·    Dedication and embellishment of detention basins and water quality devices

·    Construction and dedication of local roads within the rezoning area.

 

A further report will be presented to Council post Gateway Determination seeking endorsement to exhibit the contributions plan with the Planning Proposal and Development Control Plan.

 

Legacy anticipates to ultimately enter into a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) with Council to deliver its proportion under the contributions plan. Legacy has provided a letter of intent to Council that confirms its intention to negotiate and execute a VPA with Council relating to Legacy’s landholdings within the rezoning area. This would provide certainty for the delivery of works within Legacy’s control and confidence that the precinct will be developed in an orderly manner. It is anticipated that further discussion will be progressed regarding a VPA prior to finalising the rezoning of the land.

 

State developer contributions

 

It is proposed that the existing ‘satisfactory arrangements’ clause under Part 6 of LEP 2010 will be relied upon in order to provide a mechanism for contributions towards state infrastructure in lieu of a Special Infrastructure Contribution (SIC).  It is anticipated that Legacy Property and any other developer within the rezoning area will enter into a VPA with State Government to provide appropriate contributions towards State Infrastructure.

 

It is envisaged that State contributions via a VPA will be required to address:

·    Emergency and health services

·    Education - the provision of an expanded and/or relocated primary school

·    Regional road and intersection upgrades

·    Public transport

 

It is anticipated that discussion will be progressed regarding a VPA following issuing of a Gateway Determination. Confirmation of this approach will be received from the State post-Gateway.

 

 

 

 

 

Proposed Development Control Plan

 

A site-specific Development Control Plan (DCP) will be created for the Orchard Hills North site to support the Planning Proposal and will include site specific controls. The DCP will reflect the proposed development and the changes sought to LEP 2010.

 

The DCP will be developed by Legacy and Council and would be prepared post Gateway Determination, the DCP will be exhibited with the Planning Proposal and Contributions Plan.

 

A number of principles for the DCP have been outlined as follows:

·    Principle 1: Provide for a diverse mix of housing, including affordable housing, for the immediate and long term needs of the community

·    Principle 2: Create a self-sufficient community through the establishment of a conveniently located local centre

·    Principle 3: Build on the existing attributes and characteristics of the site, including its ecological, visual and heritage values

·    Principle 4: Maintain and enhance the characteristics of the existing significant vegetation

·    Principle 5: Promote active transport within Orchard Hills North and to the wider community through the provision of connected open spaces

 

A further report will be presented to Council post Gateway Determination seeking endorsement to exhibit the Development Control Plan with the contributions plan and Planning Proposal.

Next steps

 

The Planning Proposal is largely consistent with the Local Planning Directions issued by the Minister for Planning. Should Council endorse the proposed amendments, the submitted Planning Proposal will be amended in accordance with the changes outlined in this report and submitted to the Greater Sydney Commission/DPE with a request for a Gateway Determination to proceed to public exhibition including further agency consultation.

 

As part of Council’s Gateway Determination request, delegation will be sought for the General Manager to update and finalise the Planning Proposal for the making of the LEP amendment.

 

Upon receipt of the Gateway Determination the DCP and contributions plan will be prepared and reported to Council to be exhibited with the Planning Proposal.

 

Conclusion

Council is in receipt of a Planning Proposal for Orchard Hills North which seeks changes to planning controls to facilitate residential development. Council officers have completed an assessment of the proposal and the justification and rationale for the proposed changes is generally supported. There is sufficient information to commence the Gateway Process.

 

It is recommended, subject to resolution on open space, that the Planning Proposal to amend the Penrith LEP 2010 be forwarded to the Greater Sydney Commission/DPE to commence the Gateway Process.

Reclassification of Council owned land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys   

 

Compiled by:               Danielle Fox, Planner

Authorised by:            Natasha Baker, City Planning Manager  

 

Outcome

We plan for our future growth

Strategy

Protect the City's natural areas, heritage and character

Service Activity

Ensure our policies, strategies and plans set a clear direction for managing the growth of our City

     

Procedural note: Section 375A of the Local Government Act 1993 requires that a division be called in relation to this matter.

 

Executive Summary

This report seeks Council’s resolution to sponsor a planning proposal that seeks to reclassify three parcels of Council owned land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys (the subject land), from ‘community’ to ‘operational’.

 

The subject land is currently zoned R4 High Density Residential. This proposal does not seek to change the zone or any other existing planning controls. Investigations by Council’s Property Development Department (the applicant), has identified the subject land as underutilised. The reclassification will enable Council to consider opportunities for the future use of the land, including options to sell or develop the site.  The planning proposal supports the recommendations in the Penrith City Strategy (2013), that supports the use of the site for higher density residential development to maximise its proximity to the St Marys town centre.

 

The reclassification requires the use of Department of Planning and Environment’s (DPE) Gateway Process (the process for making and amending local environmental plans). This process requires a Gateway Determination, the preparation and public exhibition of a planning proposal and an independently chaired public hearing. The report recommends that Council sponsor the planning proposal.

Background

Council owns the subject land that is bound by the rail corridor to the north, Glossop Street to the east, Chesham Street to the south, and, Lethbridge Street to the west (See Figure 1). The land is zoned R4 High Density Residential under Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP), and is currently vacant with some vegetation and clumps of trees.

 

Adjoining the subject land to the south (and north of Chesham Street) is a public reserve for public garden and recreation space (that was dedicated as ‘public highway’ in 1962). It is intended that this land will undergo a road closure and reclassification process separate from this planning proposal.

 

Historically the subject land comprised a former road (closed in 1946), and a girl guides hall (demolished in 2011). The subject land has not been used for community purposes for approximately 10 years. Investigation by the applicant identified the site as surplus to Council’s needs due to underutilisation. The applicant is pursuing the reclassification of the site to enable future options (including sale or development) to be considered. These options cannot be pursued on land classified as ‘community’.

 

The purpose of this report is to recommend that Council sponsor the planning proposal and commence the statutory process to reclassify the land from ‘community’ to ‘operational’.

Strategic Context

 

A planning proposal has been prepared and was lodged with Council on 1 March 2018 (RZ18/0003). The planning proposal satisfactorily addresses all the matters required to be included in a planning proposal (as outlined in section 3.33 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and the DPE’s Guide to preparing planning proposals). See Attachment 1.

 

The planning proposal has strategic merit when assessed against applicable local and regional strategic plans and studies.

 

The Penrith City Strategy (2013) (that incorporates the draft Penrith Urban Strategy (2008)) recommended that the subject area be used for higher density residential development to maximise its proximity to the St Marys town centre and public transport. The site is already zoned R4 High Density Residential in response to this.

 

The Community Plan and Delivery Program represents the community’s 20-year vision for Penrith. This planning proposal supports the outcomes and strategies within the Community Plan.

 

The Greater Sydney Region Plan sets a 40-year vision and establishes a 20-year plan to manage growth and change for Greater Sydney. This plan advocates for ongoing housing supply and a range of housing types in the right locations to create more liveable neighbourhoods and support the Greater Sydney’s growing population. 

 

The Western City District Plan is a 20-year plan to manage growth in the context of economic, social and environmental matters to achieve the 40-year vision for Greater Sydney. This Plan advocates for housing supply, choice and affordability, with access to jobs, services and public transport. The plan also identifies St Marys as a strategic centre, noting economic growth as a core goal for planning St Marys.

 

The subject land is within walking distance to St Marys town centre, St Marys rail and bus interchange and  local open space areas.

 

The reclassification of the subject area to ‘operational’ land allows the Council to commence dealings in the land that supports the current R4 High Density Residential zoning. This will enable the potential of the land to be unlocked and facilitate development in the city including the delivery of a range of housing types to suit different types of households that is close to public transport and the St Marys town centre.

 

Reclassification Process

 

Public land is managed under the Local Government Act 1993, based on its classification. All public land must be classified as either ‘community’ land or ‘operational’ land.

 

·    Community land – is land council makes available for use by the public, for example, parks, reserves or sports grounds.

·    Operational land – is land which facilitates the functions of council, and may not be open to the public, for example, a works depot or council garage.

 

Community land must not be sold, exchanged or otherwise disposed of by a council.  There is no special restriction on Council powers to manage, develop, dispose, or change the nature and use of operational land. The reclassification of public land does not commit Council to the sale or development of that land, nor does it alienate the land from Council’s ownership or prevent the current use of the land from continuing.

 

The reclassification process requires the amendment of Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 via a planning proposal being submitted to the DPE to commence the Gateway Process. Upon receipt of a Gateway Determination, public exhibition and agency consultation will occur, followed by an independently chaired public hearing (required for reclassification of land). The results of the community consultation will then be reported to Council.

 

Conclusion

 

The reclassification of 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys as ‘operational’ will enable Council to investigate future options for the site including sale or development in line with the existing R4 High Density Residential zone. The planning proposal supports the recommendations in the draft Penrith Urban Strategy (2008). It is recommended that Council sponsor the planning proposal and commence the statutory process to reclassify the land from ‘community’ to ‘operational’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on Reclassification of Council owned land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys be received

2.    A Planning Proposal reclassifying public land at 11-13 Chesham Street, St Marys from Community land to Operational land be submitted to the Department of Planning and Environment seeking a Gateway Determination.

3.    Consultation with the community and public agencies be undertaken in accordance with any Gateway Determination issued by the Department of Planning and Environment.

4.    An independently chaired public hearing be held at least 21 days after the close of the public exhibition period.

5.    A planning consultant be engaged to independently chair the public hearing.

6.    A report be presented to Council on the submissions received during the public exhibition and the results of the public hearing.

Draft Street Performers Policy   

 

Compiled by:               Rebekah Elliott, City Engagement Officer

Authorised by:            Jeni Pollard, Place Manager  

 

Outcome

We have safe, vibrant places

Strategy

Help make our major centres and important community places safe and attractive

Service Activity

Support the revitalisation of Penrith City Centre, St Marys Town Centre and other key centres in the City

      

 

Executive Summary

Following a presentation at a Councillor Briefing on 5th February, 2018, Council officers initiated the development of a policy framework to manage and guide street performances in the Penrith and St Marys centres. The policy includes comprehensive guiding principles, objectives and permit requirements for street performers in Penrith.  The attached draft Street Performers Policy has been developed following extensive research and consultation with Council, businesses and in collaboration with a number of departments across Council.

 

The aim of the policy is to manage activities that add vibrancy and support Council’s aspirations to revitalise our city centre, whilst ensuring that safety and compliance underpin street performance activities. The policy also aims to encourage, nurture and grow opportunities for local performers in Penrith, while contributing to the colour, life and culture of a city.

 

The report recommends that Council adopt the attached draft Street Performers Policy (Attachment 1).

Background

Street entertainment is an important element of building a vibrant and engaging city. It offers the community a diversity of entertainment in the public realm, encouraging people to spend time in places rather than simply passing through. With the significant investment Council is currently making in our public domain, it is timely to consider how we foster and manage opportunities for activation and enlivening our city centres.

 

Both the Penrith City Centre and St Marys Town Centre offer a number of locations for street performers to contribute to the vibrancy and life of the city. The Penrith City Centre Public Domain Masterplan and Night Time Economy Strategy as well as the St Marys Streetscape Improvement Project underline the importance of activating these locations in the city and town centre.

 

Street performers, when well managed add to the cultural richness of a vibrant place and contribute to an inherent sense of safety and security for the community. The valuable contribution street performers can make to the local culture and economy is widely documented.

 

In writing this policy, Council Officers have researched street performing policies from several Sydney metropolitan and interstate Councils and considered what may work best in Penrith.

 

Draft Policy Aims and Objectives

The aim of the policy is to manage activities that add vibrancy and support Council’s aspirations to revitalise our city centre, whilst ensuring that safety and compliance underpin street performance activities.

 

The draft policy objectives are to ensure that street performers operate on Council land in accordance with the rules that protect the public interest and that these activities compliment and do not conflict with retail and commercial businesses in the city centres.

 

In addition, the draft policy will serve as an opportunity for the local performing arts sector and individual artists to grow, whilst contributing to the vibrancy, safety and appeal of our city centres.

 

Outline of the Draft Policy

Street performers currently only operate on privately owned land (e.g. Westfield Penrith) within the Penrith LGA. The draft policy will allow street performers to operate with a permit at prescribed locations within the Penrith City Centre and St Marys Town Centre. These locations have been identified in collaboration with Council compliance officers and following engagement with local businesses, particularly those that are adjacent to the proposed sites.

 

The policy is structured in two parts. Part 1 specifies the criteria which Council must consider when determining whether or not to grant an approval of a Street Performer Permit; and Part 2 specifies the conditions that are applicable to street performers once a permit has been granted.

 

Application Process

The fee structure is proposed at $20 annually, or $10 for people who are under 18 years of age and short-term permits (interstate or international applicants). These fees are designed to allow street performing to be accessible and appealing to young and upcoming artists, while contributing a small amount to the cost of administration.

 

Applications will be assessed by a panel of Council staff from The Joan, Place Management and Community and Cultural Development. Applicants will be required to submit an example of their work (via sound bite or video) as part of their application. The policy outlines the assessment criteria and Councils right to deny applications that do not meet the objectives of the policy. Young people under 16 years of age are subject to special application requirements, including parental consent, performance restrictions during school hours and parental or adult supervision. 

 

Site Identification

Nine locations across Penrith have been identified for street performances. Five locations have been identified in Penrith City Centre and four locations in St Marys Town Centre. Details of the locations and any specific site restrictions are in the attached policy.

 

Stakeholder Engagement

Businesses surrounding the identified locations have been consulted regarding the draft policy. As a result of the engagement process, there have been changes to the proposed locations and further changes are possible should there be compelling issues raised. Council officers will work with letting agents to ensure that incoming businesses are advised of the locations.

 

Businesses that have provided feedback and support to date will be provided a letter thanking them and information on who to contact should they have any issues or concerns with the identified locations.

 

Conclusion

The Draft Street Performers Policy will support the growth of our city centres as vibrant and safe places. It also provides a platform to showcase local talent in our community and the opportunity for that talent to grow. The proposed requirements of the policy will ensure that the public interest is protected and that street performances take place in a safe and appropriate environment.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on Draft Street Performers Policy be received

2.    The Draft Street Performers Policy be adopted.
