Executive Summary

The purpose of this report is to present the outcomes of a public exhibition undertaken for the Annual Update Planning Proposal, which seeks changes to Penrith Local Environmental Plan 2010 (LEP 2010) to resolve several policy matters, contemporise certain elements and undertake minor changes.

 

It is recommended that Council endorses the Planning Proposal and that it then be forwarded to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces and Parliamentary Counsel with a request to make the local environmental plan amendment.

Background

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.

 

At its Policy Review Committee meeting of 4 June 2018, Council considered a report on the Planning Proposal and resolved to forward the Planning Proposal to the Minister for Planning with a request to issue a Gateway Determination. On 17 December 2018, a Gateway Determination was issued which advised that the Planning Proposal process may proceed to public exhibition subject to conditions specified in the Gateway.

 

The Planning Proposal

 

The preparation of a Planning Proposal is the first step in the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s (DPIE) 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

 

A copy of the Planning Proposal has been provided to Councillors as a separate enclosure, is publicly-available on Council’s website, and has been tabled tonight.

 

The proposed changes to LEP 2010 are listed in the table below:

Public exhibition and public authority consultation

 

The Planning Proposal was placed on public exhibition from 15 April to 27 May 2019 in

accordance with legislative requirements and the conditions of the Gateway Determination. Notice of the exhibition was published in the Western Weekender newspaper throughout the

exhibition period. The exhibition material was available on Council’s website, at the Penrith

Civic Centre, Penrith Library, the St Marys Business Office and St Marys Library. Public

authorities were notified in accordance with the requirements of the Gateway Determination.

 

A total of 3 submissions were received that are summarised below:

 

1.   Roads and Maritime Services (RMS): The RMS submission raises no objection to the Planning Proposal. It offers comments on each of the 16 changes sought to LEP 2010, for Council consideration.

 

In relation to the proposed changes to bus shelter advertising (see Item 1 in the above table of proposed changes) the RMS submission makes comment that “Any advertisements that would trigger a referral (concurrence or otherwise) to Roads and Maritime under State Environmental Planning Policy No 64 – Advertising and Signage (SEPP 64) should not be classified as exempt development”. In response, it is noted that clause 6(2) of SEPP 64 states that the provisions of SEPP 64 do not apply to signage which is exempt development under an environmental planning instrument. LEP 2010 is an environmental planning instrument, and this Planning Proposal seeks to introduce exempt development provisions relating to bus shelter advertising into LEP 2010. In this regard, the proposed LEP 2010 exempt provisions for bus shelter advertising would not require referral to or concurrence from RMS.

 

2.   Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH): The OEH submission makes reference to the proposed changes relating to Number 2-8 & 10 Twin Creeks Drive, Luddenham (see Item 16 in the above table of proposed changes) and raises no objection to the proposed changes, given that the existing area in this location that is zoned E2 Environmental Conservation is to remain unchanged, and that the proposed changes are unlikely to impact biodiversity values or Aboriginal cultural heritage and will not exacerbate natural hazards.

 

3.   One public submission: A public submission was received which requests the rezoning of several properties in Penrith to facilitate intensified residential development, and for this to be considered as part of Council’s residential strategy under preparation for the local government area. The submission does not relate to properties subject to the changes sought in the Annual Update Planning Proposal. Council officers have acknowledged the submission and will consider the matters raised in strategic land use planning being undertaken.

 

It is noted that the 3 submissions do not raise objection to the Planning Proposal. After consideration of the submissions Council officers have determined not to make any subsequent changes to the Planning Proposal.

 

Next steps

 

Should Council resolve to endorse the recommendations of this report the updated Planning

Proposal will be finalised and forwarded to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces and Parliamentary Counsel to make the local environmental plan amendment.

 

Conclusion

 

Council officers have prepared a Planning Proposal 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.

 

The Planning Proposal has been placed on public exhibition and undergone public authority consultation. No objections have been received in relation to the Planning Proposal. Should Council resolve to endorse the recommendations of this report the updated Planning Proposal will be finalised and forwarded to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces and Parliamentary Counsel to make the local environmental plan amendment.

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on Annual Update Planning Proposal be received

2.    Council endorses the Planning Proposal presented in this report which has been provided to Councillors as a separate enclosure, is publicly-available on Council’s website, and has been tabled tonight.

Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution   

 

Compiled by:               Kathryn  Sprang, Development Assessment Planner

Authorised by:            Peter Wood, Development Services Manager 

Requested By:            Councillor Marcus Cornish

 

Outcome

We plan for our future growth

Strategy

Protect the City’s natural areas, heritage and character

Service Activity

Guide quality development outcomes through provision of expert advice and quality customer service

      

 

Executive Summary

Penrith City Council continues to recognise local cultural heritage values and ensure community input through the Heritage Advisory Committee. The Heritage Advisory Committee provides ongoing advice and recommendations regarding listed heritage items, heritage funding grants, policies and procedures.

 

The current Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution was created over a decade ago and requires an update to reflect a more contemporary role of the Committee. This report addresses the Heritage Advisory Committee request for amendments to the constitution including formally reporting the Heritage Advisory Committee minutes to Council and changes to membership.

 

Background

 

It has been a theme of discussion over the last year in the Heritage Advisory Committee meetings that a review of the constitution is warranted, given the age of the current one and changing dynamics of the Committee. Upon review it is evident that how the Heritage Advisory Committee is currently operating and wanting to operate does not align with the current constitution. One of the more pressing matters raised has been that the constitution should stipulate that the minutes of the Heritage Advisory Committee meetings should be formally reported to Council.

 

Another proposed change to the constitution relates to the structure and membership. Currently at the Heritage Advisory Committee meetings approximately 6 to 7 members (including Councillors) are attending while the Committee consists of 11 representatives from various community groups. It is recommended in the draft constitution that the Committee should consist of 2 Councillors and 8 community members to reflect the changing dynamics of the membership over time. This proposed amendment is anticipated to capture a broader range of community members (including professionals who aren’t necessarily representing an organisation) while also retaining existing members.

 

Process

A draft Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution has been reported to Council’s Leadership Team and informed a draft Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution which was subsequently reported to the Heritage Advisory Committee on the 6 February 2019, for discussion and feedback.


 

The Committee requested changes and some re-wording of the draft constitution. The more significant amendments requested were:

·    That the constitution be amended to state that the Committees’ role includes discussion and commentary on Development Applications, to inform assessments. The draft constitution reported to the Committee, at this time, stated that the Committees’ role shall exclude advice or recommendations relating to development applications; and

·    That the constitution be amended to revert to 6 meetings per annum, rather than 4 per annum, suggested in the draft.

 

It was requested by the Committee that another amended draft constitution be bought back, reflecting the above feedback. This was reported to the Heritage Advisory Committee on the 17 April 2019. The Committee agreed that the amended draft constitution as presented was satisfactory and that the amended constitution should be reported to Council for endorsement.

 

Conclusion

 

The proposed new Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution is in response to calls for an update on the existing constitution. It is anticipated that the changes proposed could align the constitution with other Council’s Heritage Committee Constitutions, align with current practices and provide more detailed guidelines regarding structure, membership and procedures. This will help the Heritage Advisory Committee provide a more valuable contribution to the heritage of the City.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.   The information contained in the report on Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution be received.

 

2.   The Draft Heritage Advisory Committee Constitution at attachment 1 be adopted by Council.

Draft Asset Management Policy   

 

Compiled by:               Hans Meijer, City Assets Manager

Caroline Orde, Business Analyst

Authorised by:            Brian Steffen, Director - City Services  

 

Outcome

We have confidence in our Council

Strategy

Manage our money and our assets to be sustainable now and into the future

Service Activity

Manage Council’s assets to minimise risk, reflect lifecycle  costs and meet community needs

      

 

Executive Summary

The report recommends that Council adopt the draft Asset Management Policy (Appendix 1). As custodian of a large asset portfolio on behalf of the community, the purpose of asset management is to manage our assets through the lifecycle of acquisition, maintenance, renewal, upgrade and ultimately replacement or disposal.

Background

Under Integrated Planning & Reporting (IPR) requirements,  Councils is required to adopt an Asset Management Policy.

 

The Asset Management Steering Committee and Asset Management Working Group are the governance bodies accountable for the effective implementation of strategic asset management across Council. They have been operating under the principles detailed in this Asset Management Policy, of managing assets to comply with all legislative requirements to ensure risks are managed and assets deliver the required level of service to the community. Councils endorsement of this policy formally recognises and commits to these principles.

 

Draft Policy Aims and Objectives

 

The aim of the policy is to outline how Council will apply asset lifecycle management principles and practices to deliver ongoing services to our community. This methodology will ensure a cost-effective approach that is sustainable into the future so that our assets continue to deliver the greatest benefit in terms of liveability to our communities. It also ensures an ongoing focus on continuous process improvement.

 

The objectives of the Asset Management Policy will provide the framework that will, with the Community Strategic Plan, Delivery Program and Resourcing Strategy, enable the implementation appropriate and legislatively compliant asset management practices.

 

Outline of Draft Policy

 

The draft policy includes foundation principles, scope and accountabilities for asset management within Council.

 

The Foundation Principles detail council’s approach to compliance, strategic planning, service levels, risk management and allocation of resources. The policy applies to assets owned and operated by council, associated with or managed by council owned entities and assets owned by Council for a commercial purpose. The policy outlines accountabilities for ensuring its implementation, differentiating between assets owned on behalf of the community and assets owned for a commercial purpose.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

The policy is appended for Council’s consideration.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

That:

1.    The information contained in the report on Draft Asset Management Policy be received

2.    The Draft Asset Management Policy be adopted
