(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

Report Author: Bernadette Lee, Property Officer Transactions

Contact Number: 8384 0016

Attachments: 1. Aerial – Subject Road (1 page)

2. Copy of Response – SA Water Email (1 page)

1. Purpose

This report outlines the outcomes from the public consultation phase to close and

dispose of a portion of unmade Martins Road adjacent 827 Main Road, McLaren

Vale, and requests Council approval to the granting of an easement in favour of SA

Water in the Road Process Order.

2. Recommendations

That for the legal and unmade Martins Road proposed for closure and disposal

adjoining 827 Main Road, McLaren Vale and bordered in red on Attachment 1 to

the agenda report, Council:

a. Notes that one written response was received from SA Water (refer to

Attachment 2 to the agenda report) as a result of the public consultation

process, requesting a 10 metre wide easement and right of way over a portion

of the proposed road to be closed.

b. Pursuant to Sections 14 and 15 of the Roads (Opening and Closing) Act 1991,

having considered the request for an easement and right of way received from

SA Water during the public consultation process (refer Attachment 2 to the

agenda report), approves the making of a Road Process Order which includes

the granting of an easement and right of way to SA Water.

c. Approves the sale of the subject portion of Martins Road to the adjoining

owner at 827 Main Road, McLaren Vale at no less than the current market

value, subject to all costs associated with the sale and transfer being met by

the adjoining landowner.

d. Authorises the Chief Executive Officer to sign any documentation necessary to

finalise the road closing process, the creation of the easement to SA Water,

the sale and transfer of the subject road to the adjoining landowners and the

consolidation of the subject land with the adjoining landowners land.

e. Approves that the net proceeds from the sale of the subject road are to be

assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding

of future strategic land acquisitions and other projects.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

3. Background

The owners of 827 Main Road, McLaren Vale (bordered in blue on Attachment 1)

requested Council consider the closure and disposal of the unmade portion of

Martins Road (bordered in red on Attachment 1), to be amalgamated into their

existing property (Allotment 100 in Deposited Plan 90755 comprised in Certificate of

Title Volume 6122 Folio 683).

At its meeting on 11 September 2012, Council approved the legal and unmade

portion of Martins Road adjoining 827 Main Road, McLaren Vale, as being surplus to

requirements and suitable for closure and disposal and approved the

commencement of the road closing process.

The delay from 2012 to now has been as a result of the adjoining landowner

applicants going through protracted negotiations with the Commissioner of

Highways who compulsorily acquired portion of their land to construct the new

McLaren Vale overpass. The applicants were impacted financially by this

compulsory acquisition and specifically requested that their application to purchase

the subject portion of Martins Road be held in abeyance.

In the interim, the applicants have held a permit to occupy and use (for grazing

and cropping purposes) the subject unmade portion of Martins Road.

The Site

The subject legal and unmade portion of Martins Road (bordered in red on

Attachment 1) is a 20m wide strip of road, which totals approximately 5,300 square

metres. The subject road abuts a section of Victor Harbor Road at the southern

boundary that was proclaimed as controlled access road on 23 October 2014

pursuant to Part 2A of the Highways Act 1926. There is no permitted access by

which persons and vehicles can directly enter or leave the subject land to Victor

Harbor Road.

The road was created by survey at the time of the original division of the area but

has never been developed as road. The road is currently used for grazing/cropping

purposes by the adjoining landowner (applicant) and has an approved permit in

place for their use and occupation of the subject land.

Council does not have any infrastructure located within the road.

Public Consultation for Road Closure

Public notification was given, pursuant to section 10 of the Roads (Opening and

Closing) Act 1991, on 16 August 2018 and involved:

 Letters were posted on 15 August 2018 to the adjoining landowners

(persons affected), prescribed public utilities and prescribed public

authorities outlining relevant details of the proposal, inviting written

submissions and providing contact details.

 The placement of a notification in the Government Gazette on 16 August

2018, outlining relevant details of the proposal, inviting written submissions

and providing contact details.

 The placement of a notification on the SA government website on 16 August

2018, outlining relevant details of the proposal, inviting written submissions

and providing contact details.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

13 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 The placement of a folder at our Customer Service Centre (Noarlunga)

outlining relevant details of the proposal, inviting written submissions and

providing contact details.

The adjoining landowners to the east have previously been contacted to seek their

interest in purchasing a portion of the subject road. They advised Council that they

were not interested in purchasing any land and did not object to the road being

closed and disposed of to the applicant.

Walking SA and Willunga Basin Trails Inc. have been contacted regarding the

proposed closure and disposal of the subject road, and have no objections to the

proposal.

Request for Easement – SA Water

SA Water has an active 300mm water supply pipe located through the subject road.

SA Water has requested a 10m wide easement for “water supply purposes” and

“right of way” to be granted in favour of SA Water as part of the Road Process

Order.

Council and the applicant are aware of the pipe and requirement to grant SA Water

an easement. The final survey plan will note a 10m wide easement in favour of SA

Water, which will occur as part of the Road Process Order.

All costs associated with granting the easement and right of way to SA Water will

be met by the applicant.

4. Financial Implications

A condition of the road closing, sale and transfer (if approved by Council) will be

that the adjoining landowners pay no less than market value for the land and meet

all costs associated with completing the road closing process.

Subject to Council approval, proceeds from the sale of the closed road will be

assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding of

future strategic land acquisitions and other projects.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Discussion

The subject road is not

progressed for disposal.

Council manages its land ownership portfolio in an

efficient and sustainable manner by continually

reviewing its assets and considers disposal options

where there is little or no community benefit to be

gained from retention of the land.

No present or future strategic or operational needs

have been identified that merits retention of the

subject roads.

From a liability and risk management viewpoint it is

desirable to dispose of land with no strategic or

operational benefit and reduce council’s risk

exposure.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

14 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Failing to deal with this parcel of land in the

recommended manner will necessitate the continued

permit arrangement for the existing uses, which is

considered an administrative burden when the land

is not considered necessary for retention.

Opportunity

Identify Maximising the opportunity

The subject road is

declared surplus and

suitable for disposal.

Consistent with all proposed land and road

disposals, the subject parcel of land was assessed

against a range of strategic and operational criteria

prior to being classified as surplus to council’s needs

and suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land assessment

indicates that the potential commercial return that

may be realised through land sale, together with the

removal of liability issues and administration burden,

would appear to outweigh any unidentified benefits

that may result from retention.

Closure of the road and disposal of the land is

considered preferable to retention indefinitely for

little or no community benefit.

On balance it would appear that processing the closure and disposal process and

granting the required easement and right of way to SA Water provides more

positive outcomes for the community than retention of the subject land.

3.3 Local Government (Ratepayer Protection and Related Measures) Amendment

Bill - Submission to the LGA

(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

H2

This is a new proposal, concept or issue.

Report Author: Daniel Jellings, Manager Strategic Futures

Contact Number: 8384 0618

Attachments: 1. Analysis of LG Amendment Bill 2018/Draft Submission to

the LGA (11 pages)

2. Local Government (Ratepayer Protection and Related

Measures) Amendment Bill (19 pages)

1. Purpose

This report provides an opportunity for Council to formally consider the Local

Government (Ratepayer Protection and Related Measures) Amendment Bill and

submit a response to the Local Government Association (LGA) to inform its advocacy

efforts. (refer attachment 1).

2. Recommendation

That Council endorses the Analysis of LG Amendment Bill 2018/Draft Submission

to the Local Government Association (per attachment 1 to the agenda report) in

response to the Local Government (Ratepayer Protection and Related Measures)

Amendment Bill, and submit to the Local Government Association to inform its

advocacy efforts.

3. Background

The Local Government (Ratepayer Protection and Related Measures) Amendment

Bill 2018 has been introduced by SA Labor through the upper-house with the inprinciple

support of SA-BEST and the Greens SA (refer attachment 2).

It outlines a range of measures that the party believes will bring greater

transparency and accountability to the local government sector, and it has been

prepared as an alternative to the state government’s rate capping proposal.

The range of measures intended to achieve these outcomes include:

 Expanding the role of the Local Government Grants Commission to include a

new ‘Local Government Commission’ with responsibility for monitoring

council performance and dealing with code of conduct complaints.

 Introduction of standardised annual performance measures for councils, and

the potential for a Local Government Commission to refer any areas of

concern to the State Productivity Commission for further review.

 Requiring councils to publish details of certain travel, gifts, credit card

expenditure and salaries online, including on social media.

 Changes to the rules about dealing with matters in confidence, including

recording how each member voted on a motion to move into confidence.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

18 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 New powers for a presiding member to regulate improper or disorderly

conduct at council meetings.

 Introducing stronger penalties for breaches of the Code of Conduct, including

financial penalties.

 Limiting CEO remuneration packages to salary, super, vehicle and

information and communication technology, and requiring CEO contracts to

be published online.

 Requiring annual budgets to include forward estimates over the following

three financial years, and introducing additional reporting requirements for

projects and services that exceed the allocated budget.

 Additional reporting requirements about how new services and projects over

a prescribed limit will be funded.

 Fully independent Audit Committees comprised only of people drawn from a

list approved by the Auditor General.

 Requiring a Local Government Commission to undertake a full review of the

Local Government Act 1999 and Local Government (Elections) Act 1999 to

address a broad range of listed matters, and provide a report to the Minister

on the outcomes of the review.

While many of the measures address community sentiment about a lack of

transparency and appropriate oversight within our sector, many of the proposals

also impose higher standards on local government than apply to federal and state

government.

We have considered the various changes proposed and include a summary and

response at attachment 1 for Council’s consideration.

This report seeks approval for this to be submitted to the LGA to inform its

advocacy efforts as the Bill is considered in early 2019.

We note that the state government has indicated it does not support the Bill and

that it will commence engagement with the sector early in the New Year to develop

its own alternative to its former rate oversight proposal. But while it is unlikely that

the Bill will be passed in the House of Assembly (i.e. where the Liberal Party holds

the majority), it is important that Council consider the Bill and provide a response

to the LGA to inform its advocacy efforts.

Council’s submission will either help inform amendments to the Bill, or help to

shape the state government’s own alternative legislation.

4. Financial Implications

There are no direct financial implications resulting from this report.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

3.4 Live streaming and recording of meetings and Council chamber upgrade

(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

This is a new proposal, concept or issue.

Manager: Desma Morris, Manager Corporate Information

Matthew Morrissey, Manager Assets & Technical Services

Report Author: Desma Morris

Contact Number: 8384 1734

Attachments: Nil

1. Purpose

This report provides an update to members of the proposal to upgrade electronics

and other infrastructure in the Council chamber.

2. Recommendations

1. That the agenda report be received and accepted.

2. That Council confirms its intention to install live streaming and recording

equipment in the Council chamber for the purpose of live streaming Council

meetings and providing the recording on Council’s corporate website for a

minimum of three (3) months.

3. That Council acknowledges the total cost of the chamber infrastructure

upgrade will require a budget allocation of up to $210,000.

4. That appropriate staff consultation is carried out and resultant management

controls and administrative polices be implemented to support staff during

the transition to live streaming.

5. That a review be undertaken after 12 months of the introduction of the

livestreaming service and that that the review includes seeking feedback

from the staff and community.

3. Background

Council has been considering the introduction of live streaming and/or video

recording since March 2018, through the Council meeting of 20 March 2018

Council, Strategic Directions Committee meeting of 7 August, 2018 and Council

meeting held on 21 August, 2018.

Further, at the Council meeting held on 11 December 2018, via a notice of motion

from Cr Olsen, it was resolved:

To provide greater transparency of Council’s decision making and the behaviours

and accountability of Elected Members, a report is to be returned to the Council

meeting in January 2019 outlining the technology options and costings available for

implementing the recording of audio and video of monthly Council Meetings

(excluding Committee meetings) for live streaming to the internet, and also

subsequently being made publicly available on-demand on the Council’s website for

The report will cover, but not be limited to:

1. Technology options available

2. Costings

3. Timeline for implementation

4. Risk assessment

5. Associated infrastructure upgrades required (including an upgrade to all

electronics that exist in the chamber)

6. Integration of recordings into Council’s Website

7. The experience of other Councils and the usage from the community.

This report seeks to advise the Elected Members of the actions undertaken by the

Council chamber upgrade project team regarding the upgrade of the council

chamber including the installation of audio and video equipment capable of

providing recording and live streaming to the internet of Council meetings.

The infrastructure within the current Council chamber has been in place since

amalgamation in 1997. As with any asset, its proper management and continued

investment into renewal and maintenance is vital. There has been little to no

investment in the technology provisions in the council chamber since its

implementation, and this lack of investment has unfortunately brought us to a point

where a larger investment is now required. The current microphone, public

address and speaker systems have become obsolete, and no longer supported with

any maintenance program or spare parts. To move any part of the current

technology provisions could result in damage that would effectively ‘break’ the

system, requiring its complete replacement.

On numerous occasions elected members, staff and presenters to Council have had

to deal with poor performing systems, which negatively impacts on the meeting

process. The feedback from our community is that they are unable to clearly hear

presentations, deputations and debate in the gallery because of the poor quality of

the speakers. The visual quality of presentations from the gallery seating area is

also poor.

The community have also told us clearly that a greater level of transparency is

required. The Chamber is the essential decision-making vehicle of the organisation

and is therefore vital to the organisation's effective operation. The ability to live

stream and record Council meetings will assist in achieving a greater level of

transparency of the primary tier of decision making, and the proposed installation

of upgraded technology will ensure that members of the public that wish to attend

meetings in the public gallery will be provided with the infrastructure to listen and

view the meetings more appropriately. Residents and interested stakeholders will

also be able to have access to this tier of decision making online in the comfort of

their own homes through the live streaming facility with the installation of quality

electronic infrastructure.

To ensure that we maximise the financial investment of upgrading the Chamber’s

technology, we will also be able to gain a higher utilisation of this equipment by

ensuring that its functionality provides for dedicated IT equipment for staff training

and meeting room requirements which are currently under supplied. During the ICT

Transformation Project, a suitable space for training staff members in the new

systems will be required. It seems appropriate that by installing fixed computer

equipment on desks in the chamber, the room could become a multi-purpose space

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

53 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

and better utilised as a fit for purpose training facility, meeting room and provide

additional temporary work spaces to be used as required.

Further, with the reduction in elected member numbers, the existing “horseshoe”

seating arrangement currently catering for 20 seats can be reduced to 16 spaces to

accommodate the new elected body with 4 additional seats, allowing the room

geometry to be rearranged to make better use of the available space and allow for

an increase in gallery seating and a flexible space for organisational training needs.

Technology considerations:

Following the formation of a project team, the project scope was drafted and

quotations were sought from four (4) suitably experienced vendors. Consideration

was given to what current technology is available, what would be fit for purpose

and what could provide flexibility for potential upgrades into the future.

The vendors were requested to provide detailed quotations on the purchase,

installation and testing of the following technology:

 The installation of live streaming and recording equipment.

 Replacement of the public address and microphone system.

 Replacement of speakers to enable members of the public gallery to clearly

hear presentations, deputations and debate in the chamber.

 Ethernet powered (PoE) clock system i.e. existing clock system replacement for

clocks in the Council Chambers, Civic Centre and Meeting Room 1.

 Controlled countdown clock predominantly used as a visible countdown of

answer time used during meetings.

 Hearing link for Civic area and Council chamber, to satisfy legislation and

support hearing impaired members of the community.

 Upgraded electronics for elected members (voting buttons) within the same

microphone solutions, providing less clutter and more contemporary and

reliable voting methods.

 Replacement of projector and screen at the front of the chamber to allow clear

viewing of agenda items by members of the gallery.

 Installation of fixed touch screens for each elected members desk, allowing

added flexibility to utilise the chamber for training purposes or workspace. This

could also reduce the use of hard copy documents during meetings, which will

assist in reducing ongoing printing and stationery costs.

 Control system to manage equipment.

 Associated electrical upgrades.

 Relocation of lighting above each elected members desk and assessment to

ensure lighting meets with Australian Standards.

 New lectern with ability to place branding on the front and includes AV inputs.

Other optional items

 Portable screen for training purposes. This could also be used as an extra

visual screen to provide a better experience for members of the public gallery.

 Video foldback, allowing room facing staff sitting under the projector screen or

at the lectern to see what is being presented from the projector.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

54 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 Technology to allow video streaming from any device as well as computers to

be presented to the projector screen.

Other considerations

Given the age of the building and ceiling structure, fixing any new equipment from

this ceiling would require an engineer’s assessment to calculate loads and

determine the appropriate fixing points. The existing ceiling is not designed for any

major loads and therefore the fixings would need to extend beyond this into

structural members above.

4. Financial Implications

The main elements of the project and are provided with the following estimated

costs:

Engineers report $5000

Furniture removal & relocation $5000

Upgraded electronics installation

(including microphones, voting

buttons, speakers, lighting,

projectors, screen, live streaming

equipment, cabling, electrical etc)

Up to $168,000

All in one desktop computers

(leased in Council’s existing 3 year pc

program)

$11,700 per annum

Minor repairs & painting $8000

The cost of the upgrade will be able to be met through current operational budgets.

Estimated ongoing costs

Annual maintenance program $2000 budget allocation

Live streaming platform

subscription

$300 approximately

Leasing of computers

(on council’s 3 year PC rollout

programme)

$11700

The operational requirements for the organisation's ICT fleet is managed through a

3-year lifecycle management program, which leases the majority of ICT

requirement and provides for a renewal program for the orderly replacement of the

ICT fleet. It is proposed that in order for the Chamber ICT equipment to remain

current and reliable that the Chamber equipment be adopted onto this program.

Therefore, the upfront capital cost associated with the desktop ICT environment

will be an operational cost and leased through our standard leasing contract.

Any ongoing costs would be met through the normal budget process.

Timeline for implementation

Subject to contractual arrangements with the successful vendor, we envisage that

the project will be completed by 30 June 2019.

Integration of recordings into Council’s website

Council’s new website, which is due for delivery by end of May 2019, will offer

enhanced capability to view on any device, providing improved accessibility to the

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

55 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

users. Any live streaming and recording of Council meetings will be able to be easily

integrated into the site and viewed on any device.

Council comparison

To support the report tabled at the Strategic Directions Committee in August 2017,

requests for information were sent to other South Australian councils to ascertain

which other councils are currently streaming or recording their meetings.

A summary of the results is:

 City of Adelaide and City of Victor Harbor currently live stream to Skype

Business.

 City of Prospect currently live stream to Youtube.

 City of Campbelltown and Alexandrina Council audio record meetings and

upload to their website.

 City of Salisbury and Port Adelaide Enfield audio record meetings for the

preparation of minutes but do not publish recordings.

 City of Adelaide had an average of 75 views per meeting in the past 12

months, including staff.

 City of Victor Harbour had an average of 30 views in the past 12 months

including staff.

 City of Whyalla do not currently live stream and resolved to cease audio

recording in 2017.

Benefits

 Audio recording of Council meetings is strong and transparent governance

practice and the accessibility of those public recordings on our website has

been well received.

 Easy to use during the meeting – at times Elected Members need to be

reminded to switch on/off their microphones.

 Can be used for detail confirmation when the minutes are being developed.

 Recordings have been used by staff who were unable to attend the Council

meeting.

 Increased opportunity for residents and ratepayers to view council meetings.

 Provides an opportunity for residents, ratepayers and other stakeholders to

know the outcome of an item they are interested in as it happens without

being at a meeting.

 Less people in the gallery.

Disadvantages

 Impact on staff resources.

 Outages external to Council.

 Heightened scrutiny due to high profile subjects.

 Initial setup of a procedural framework around the handling of the recordings

and requests for access.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

56 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 Detracts from the collegiate nature of Council’s decisions by focussing on the

comments of individuals rather than the collective decisions of Council.

Apart from the information collected above, there is no public accessible

information available on the user experience for live streaming.

The administration has researched current practices interstate. The Office of Local

Government in New South Wales recently introduced a Model Code of Meeting

Practice for Local Council’s in NSW. The new Code of Practice mandates that from

14 December 2019, all meetings of the council and committees of the council will

be required to be webcast on the respective council’s website.

Several other interstate council’s currently live stream including:

 City of Wodonga

 City of Monash

 City of Stonnington

 East Gippsland Shire Council

 Kingston City Council

 Maroondah City Council

 City of Greater Dandenong

 City of Gleneira

 Manningham Council

 Ipswich City Council

 City of Gold Coast

 Central Highlands Council

 Noosa Council

 City of Greater Geraldton

 City of Vincent

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

The administration considered the application of the risk management framework to

the introduction of live streaming and recording of Council meetings. A detailed risk

assessment and is included as Attachment 1.

In accordance with the Risk Management Framework both assessments considered:

 The activity.

 The potential consequences description.

 The risk category (people safety, reputation/brand image, political, financial).

 Inherent risk rating (with no controls applied).

 Controls (measure that is modifying risk).

 Current risk rating (with current controls).

 Any additional controls.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

57 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 The residual risk rating (after all controls have been applied).

 Any escalation required (the authority required for acceptance of risk).

Opportunity

Identify Maximising the opportunity

Promote transparency

and accountability

Recordings and on-line audio and video streaming of

meetings can be accessed by the public, which will

promote accountability and transparency in Council

decision making. The Local Government Act contains

a number of accountability mechanisms to ensure

transparent decision-making (i.e. including the

requirements for meetings to be held in public,

notice of meetings and the public availability of the

agenda and the release of minutes) such that it may

not be considered necessary to take actions over

and above the requirements of the Act by on-line

audio and video streaming or recording meetings for

this purpose.

Wider accessibility for

residents to access

meetings

Prior to on-line audio and video streaming

commencing, a campaign promoting the service

could be carried out.

Ensure high standard of

conduct

On-line audio and video streaming or recording of

Council meetings may serve to potentially hold

members to account and promote higher standards

of behaviour.

Convenience If recordings are made available in an archive,

members of the community can view the meeting at

any time, especially if they are concerned about a

contentious decision of Council, and can listen to the

debate and the rationale behind the decision.

6. Additional information

The City of Onkaparinga is the largest metropolitan Council in the state, with an

estimated population of over 160,000 over 518 Km2. The community have clearly

requested greater transparency and the introduction of live streaming and

recording of meetings will assist in achieving that goal by allowing more of the

community to view the meeting process.

While there have been some risks identified related to the introduction of live

streaming and recording of meetings, with suitable controls implemented, the risks

can be mitigated to an acceptable level.

The Council chamber is an important asset of Council and the community and has

not been invested in adequately since amalgamation. It now requires a significant

investment to upgrade the facilities to be fit for purpose and allowing greater and

more flexible usage of an underutilised space in a time of demand.

3.7 Notice of Motion - Cr Brown - Attending conferences during caretaker period

(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

Background

At the last meeting it was identified that five councillors attended a conference 2

weeks prior to the close of the ballot papers. It was asked how this attendance at

the end of term contributes to the community benefit, but no reports were tabled.

All five councillors were not re-elected. This allocation of funds could be seen to

have been put to better use, ie some seats for the community, play equipment ,

exercise equipment, creek line vegetation, or many other uses. It is not seen as a

wise investment so late in the term.

MOTION

That conferences, dinners and similar type expenses are not supported once

nominations have closed during an election period. That under extenuating

circumstances if an elected member seeks exemption, the full chamber considers

the merit of the request and either refuses or accepts the request and

subsequent funding.

3.8 Notice of Motion - Cr Brown - Council supplied mobile phones

(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

Background

In the past term there was much concern that costs were not being measured or

accounted for in with best practice. It was noted that some councillors chose to

take up an option, as per the Elected Members Allowances, Benefits and Support

Procedure (the Procedure), and were provided with mobile phones which are listed

in the Register of EM Allowances and Benefits under “equipment supplied by

council”. They also had funds deducted for personal call costs. However the dollar

value of the phone was not listed with the payment of allowances and

reimbursements. Alternatively elected members were also provided the option (as

per the Procedure) to seek reimbursement of up to $40 per month for the use of

their own personal mobile phones.

Motion

That if mobile phones are made available to elected members in this term, the

approximate cost of the mobile phone supplied by Council be listed next to

“equipment supplied by council” on the Register of EM Allowances and Benefits.

3.9 Notice of Motion - Cr Peat - The practice of selling off council reserves

(adjourned from Council meeting 22/1/19)

Background

Council’s decision to sell portions of its reserves and open space is a decision

adopted by the previous Council. A outcome from that decision requires

consideration by the newly elected members as the effect on adjoining property

owners is as follows:-

FINANCIAL

Council’s selling of land results in a significant devaluation to the adjoining property

owner’s house and land. Adjoining property owners spent a great deal more money

when purchasing their allotments because their property does boundary a Council

Reserves or Open Space that for all intent and purposes was never envisaged to be

sold.

AMENITY

Property owners lose their view, living environment and way of life. The land

Council sells abutting their property will be utilised for high density development.

The resident therefore moves from an open space living environment to a closed in

environment.

EXPOSED

Adjoining property owners have not fenced their boundary abutting Council’s land.

Why would they!

The very reason they purchased their land was in the knowledge that the adjoining

Council land would not be built on and have designed and build their homes to

fully appreciate the open space and view

On Council selling its land the new owner (Purchaser) will fence the abutting

boundary and seek half the surveying and fencing costs from a resident who is

already losing their AMENITY and FINANCIALY subjected to a reduction to their

property’s resale price.

Council is financially rewarded from the sale but leaves the adjoining residents

emotionally broken.

There are numerous of ways Council can remove the impact of surveying and

fencing costs on adjoining property owners

• Council can apply a “Condition of Sale” on the land Council is selling stating the

total surveying and fence costs are to be borne by the purchaser of the land

from Council

• Council can erect a fence at its cost prior to the sale of its land and add the

cost to Council’s sales price.

• Council can charge more for the land and hold a small portion in Trust and

include in the “Sale Contract” that the purchaser of the land from Council is to

obtain half the cost of erecting a fence from Council.

There are numerous ways in which a measure can be applied.

This motion is requesting a report be presented to Council highlighting the best

method to achieve an outcome that alleviates adjoining property owner of

surveying and fencing costs.

1. Purpose

This report details the outcomes from the public consultation phase of the proposal

to revoke the community land classification of a portion of council reserve land at

145 Tatachilla Road, McLaren Vale and recommends a request be forwarded to the

Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for consent to revoke

the subject land from its community land classification in accordance with the

legislative procedure.

2. Recommendations

That for the council owned reserve described as portion of Allotment 208 in

Deposited Plan 14579, comprised in Certificate of Title Volume 4303 Folio 430, at

145 Tatachilla Road, McLaren Vale and delineated in red on attachment 1 to the

agenda report;

Council:

1. Notes that for the subject land, 155 submissions (10 supporting and 145

objecting) from 147 contributors (some objections were duplicated) were

received during the public consultation phase of the community land

revocation process.

2. Having considered the submissions received, resolves to:

a. proceed with the process to revoke the subject land from its community

land classification to enable division and sale on the basis that,

 our Open Space Strategic Management Plan (OSSMP) identifies a

portion of the reserve (approx. 3,000m²) as surplus to open space

requirements and as part of the initial OSSMP public consultation

process no objections were received to the identification of that

land as surplus,

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

112 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 our internal consultation process confirms that there is no strategic

or operational need to justify retention,

 our strategic land assessment indicates that the potential

commercial return that may be realised through a division and sale,

together with the savings to be achieved from the removal of

grounds maintenance and liability issues, would appear to

outweigh the community benefits from retention of the subject

portion of reserve land,

 the subject portion of land represents considerably less than half

the overall reserve, resulting in the larger southern portion being

retained as open space,

 the subject portion of reserve land adjoins quality residential

development that is serviced with existing infrastructure. This

represents a unique opportunity in McLaren Vale to facilitate good

quality land division and residential infill to the benefit of the area

and the city as a whole,

 within 500 metres of the subject portion of land there are two

district family reserves, both with playgrounds and comprising a

total reserve area of 6.14 hectares,

OR

b. discontinue the revocation process for the subject land in recognition of

the community objection that has resulted from the public consultation

phase of the process.

3. Proceeds with a request to the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and

Local Government for approval to revoke the subject portion of land from its

community land classification to enable a land division into four allotments for

disposal on the open market.

4. Approves a Land Management Agreement being placed on the proposed four

allotments at the time of title issue and prior to sale, to limit development on

the subject allotments to single level detached housing.

5. Notes that a final update report will be presented to Council once the

Minister’s decision regarding the proposed revocation has been received.

3. Background

At its meeting on 21 August 2018, Council declared ‘in principle’ that the subject

portion of reserve land bordered in red on attachment 1 to this agenda report was

surplus to open space requirements and suitable for disposal and approved the

commencement of the public consultation phase of the revocation of community

land process. Public consultation, which was deferred due to the Council caretaker

period during Local Government Elections, concluded on 21 December 2018.

The proposal arose from a portion of the reserve land (less than half representing

approximately 3,000 m²) being identified in the Open Space Strategic Management

Plan (OSSMP) as surplus to open space requirements.

The OSSMP included an analysis of council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

113 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

This presents the opportunity to proactively consider disposal of the subject land to

enable the proceeds to be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to

assist with the funding of future strategic property acquisitions and other

community projects.

4. Financial Implications

If the revocation process is ultimately approved by Council, it is proposed that the

net proceeds (gross proceeds less revocation, development and disposal costs)

from the sale of the subject lands be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve

Fund to assist with the funding of future strategic land acquisitions and other

community projects.

Disposal of the subject portion of land will remove Council’s on-going financial

obligations in respect to maintenance and risk, whilst returning net sale proceeds

(anticipated to be in the order of $1 million) to Council.

Sale of the subdivided allotments will be at no less than the market value of the

land as determined by a professional and independent land valuer.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Discussion

The subject portion of

reserve is not approved

for revocation and

disposal.

Council manages its land ownership portfolio in an

efficient and sustainable manner by continually

reviewing its assets and considering disposal options

when little or no community benefit is derived from

retention of the land.

Council has previously endorsed the OSSMP which

identifies lands to be retained. An approximate 3,000

m² portion of the reserve was identified as surplus

to the OSSMP. On this basis it is appropriate to

consider the subject land for possible revocation and

disposal.

An extensive public consultation process occurred

prior to the adoption of the OSSMP by Council. No

public objection was received to the identification of

an approximate 3,000 m² portion of the reserve as

surplus to the requirements of the OSSMP.

There has not been any present or future

development identified for the subject reserve nor

has there been any strategic or operational need

identified that justifies retention.

Failing to deal with this portion of land in the

recommended manner will result in ongoing

maintenance costs and public liability being held by

council when there is no strategic or operational

requirement for the land to remain in council’s

ownership.

Revoking community

land without adequately

considering community

submissions.

It is a requirement of the Local Government Act

1999 that Council first considers all objections and

submissions before approaching the Minister for

Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for

approval to revoke community land.

Community

dissatisfaction that the

subject portion of land

is approved for

revocation and eventual

disposal.

Whilst there may be some resultant concerns

expressed by members of the public who have

opposed the revocation and eventual sale of the

subject land, it is the responsibility of Council to

decide the most appropriate way forward. These

decisions take into account the level of use of the

reserve, the availability of other reserves in the

locality, objections received as part of the

consultation process together with the rationality

behind the objections and the long term priorities of

Council.

Concern that this

recommendation will

set a precedent for

future disposals.

All applications to revoke and dispose of community

land are considered on their individual merits and

are decided based on the particular circumstances

that exist. It is not considered that a precedent will

be set if Council approves the continuation of this

particular revocation and disposal process.

Opportunity

Identify Maximising the opportunity

Council resolves to

proceed with the

revocation process by

seeking the consent of

the Minister.

Consistent with all proposed revocations and

disposals, the subject land is first assessed against a

range of strategic and operational criteria prior to

being classified as surplus to council’s needs and

suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land use

assessment indicates that the subject portion of land

is not required as a reserve.

Revocation and disposal of the land is considered

preferable to retention indefinitely for little or no

community benefit.

Revocation and disposal of the land will enable net

proceeds to be assigned for future more strategic

land acquisitions and projects that will ultimately

provide more benefit to the community.

Disposal will avoid the need for continued ongoing

operational costs associated with maintaining and

holding the land.

6. Discussion

Planning Policy Considerations

The subject reserve is held within the Residential Zone and McLaren Vale Policy

Area 39 under the current version of the Onkaparinga Council Development Plan

(consolidated 20 December 2018).

Regarding development applications for the division of land, Objectives 1 and 2 of

the McLaren Vale Policy Area support ‘low density dwellings which ensures the

preservation of the existing development patterns and built form’, as well as ‘infill

development that is designed to reflect the traditional character elements of the

area, particularly as presented to the streetscape’. It is therefore important for any

future division of the land to reflect the existing size and pattern of residential

allotments in the area.

More generally, Principles of Development Control 16 and 27 of the Residential

Zone prescribes a minimum allotment size of 325 square metres and a minimum

frontage width of 9 metres for new residential allotments for the development of

detached dwellings.

Council’s Development Plan also relevantly designates Tatachilla Road as a

Secondary Arterial Road, requiring approval from the Commissioner of Highways for

any new vehicle access points proposed onto Tatachilla Road. Caffrey Street and

Valley View Drive are designated as local roads.

As the land is not within the McLaren Vale Character Preservation District as

defined by the Character Preservation (McLaren Vale) Act 2012, (which prohibits

the division of primary production zoned allotments to the southern side of

Tatachilla Road and the western side of Caffrey Street for residential purposes), the

division of land as proposed in this report can be considered.

Initial Land Division Opportunity (benefits of northern portion)

Our Community Assets Team (through the OSSMP) identified a portion (approx.

3,000 m²) of the overall reserve parcel as surplus to the requirements of the open

space network. Whilst the OSSMP indicated disposal of the southern half and

retention of the northern half, further consideration identified that the most

desirable portion for retention as open space is the southern half and the most

desirable portion for disposal to facilitate residential development is the northern

half.

Retention of the southern half as open space provides the opportunity to retain

existing mature native trees recognises existing council public seating beneath the

tree canopy and recognises the existing restrictive SA Water service infrastructure

easement through this portion. The northern portion proposed for revocation and

disposal (the subject of the public consultation) contains no infrastructure and no

native trees and is simply slashed for appearance and control of flammable growth.

Tatachilla Road is designated as a Secondary Arterial Road, therefore the

Commissioner of Highways would be required to approve any additional vehicle

access points proposed onto Tatachilla Road as part of any land division

assessment process. The Commissioner of Highways generally does not support

any additional vehicle crossovers to arterial roads, which would negate the

opportunity to divide the Tatachilla Road fronting land for residential purposes with

direct access onto Tatachilla Road.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

116 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

It should be noted that all of the existing residential allotments heading east along

Tatachilla Road are currently required to obtain their access from legal roads to the

north (Valley View Drive, Hardy Avenue, Gloucester Terrace), providing a strong

indication that residential vehicle access onto Tatachilla Road is not considered

appropriate by the Commissioner of Highways.

In addition our Traffic Engineer has advised that a division for residential allotments

on the southern end of Caffrey Street at the Tatachilla Road intersection is not ideal

due to the closeness of the intersection. Tatachilla Road is a Department of

Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) maintained arterial road with a 70

km per hour speed limit and any land division at the intersection would require it to

be referred to DPTI.

It is noted that the intersection of Caffrey Street and Tatachilla Road is a popular

spectator view point for the Tour Down Under. The creation of allotments at this

corner to the detriment of available space for spectator viewing is not

recommended.

Based on the above rationale, it is considered highly desirable to proceed with the

northern portion for revocation and disposal. This is the area previously approved

by Council at its 21 August 2018 meeting and is the area the subject of the public

consultation.

Other land division options for the reserve

When considering potential residential land division options for the reserve,

consideration was also given to suggestions received from Elected Members during

a site inspection, which was to consider a land division along the Caffrey Street side

(refer Attachment 5, photos 1 and 2), as that may have the least impact on the

balance open space reserve and may be more acceptable to the community.

Whilst this option has merit, it is constrained by the fact that any land division

undertaken by Council is aimed at achieving the best development outcomes

consistent with planning guidelines. This option limits the number of allotments

that can be created to three with 20 metre frontages consistent with the pattern in

the street. The possibility exists to create four with 15 metre frontages which,

whilst meeting the minimum frontages in the development plan, does not conform

to the existing land division character of the area.

Costs to extend both the water main and Community Waste Management System

would also be higher in this scenario due to the increase in length.

This option would result in the allotments having back fences facing onto the

reserve which is not desirable under the Crime Prevention Through Environmental

Design principles and the Principles of Development Control within the development

plan. Development should be designed to maximise surveillance of public spaces

and provide a robust environment that is resistant to vandalism and graffiti.

Another option considered was to create a road along the approximate half way

mark of the reserve resulting in a new road cul-de-sac to service the newly created

allotments (refer Attachment 5, photo 3).

This option has the potential to accommodate two allotments with 20 metre

frontages and one allotment with a 16 metre frontage on the southern section of

the reserve however this option would result in the undesired removal of the

mature trees and a 16 metre wide parcel of open space between housing

allotments due to the existing SA Water infrastructure easement.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

117 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

The additional cost to carry out the civil works would be significant (diminishing the

anticipated net returns) and would result in a larger area of open space reserve

being permanently removed from public ownership.

Options contained in Attachment 5, photos 1, 2 and 3 are therefore not

recommended.

Division of the subject portion of reserve

Given that the proposed portion, the subject of the public consultation process, is

considered most suitable (based on the preference to retain the southern portion as

open space, combined with the ease of servicing and subdividing the northern

portion (approx. 3,000 m²) compared with the southern portion, two obvious

options for division and sale are considered, as follows:

1. Divide the land into six residential allotments

(Attachment 5, photo 4)

Whilst a division of the subject land into six allotments with 13.6 metre

frontages will meet the minimum size requirements of the development plan,

the frontages will not be consistent with the majority of allotment frontages

(and pattern) in this subdivided area.

It may also be perceived by the community that Council (as the developer) is

stretching its own planning rules by permitting development that does not

conform with the surrounding land divisions, therefore this option is not

considered appropriate.

The total land division costs for this option (which includes costs associated with

SA Water mains and CWMS mains extensions) are estimated to be in the vicinity

of $140,000 with the gross sale proceeds estimated to be in the vicinity of $1.2

million.

2. Divide the land into four residential allotments (Attachment 6)

A division of the subject land into four residential allotments provides the

opportunity for 20 metre allotment frontages which is consistent with the

majority of allotment frontages in this subdivided area. This proposal conforms

accurately with the intent of the development plan and results in a regular

pattern of quality allotments.

As Council is undertaking the land division it is considered appropriate to

undertake a model division that can be viewed from a planning perspective as

exemplary, in contrast to private divisions that only consider optimum returns to

the developer.

The total land division costs for this option (which includes costs associated with

SA Water mains and CWMS mains extensions) are estimated to be in the vicinity

of $110,000 with the gross sale proceeds estimated to be in the vicinity of

$1.15 million.

Whilst the net returns for the four allotment option are anticipated to be slightly

below the net returns for the six allotment option, they are considered to be

outweighed by the benefits resulting from Council undertaking the land division

and development. This provides the opportunity for a model development that

aligns consistently with the Development Plan and pattern and form of

development for the locality.

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

118 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Land Management Agreement

One of the major concerns raised by objectors to the revocation and disposal

process is the uncertainty of the standard and type of development that may occur

on the subject land if sold and the perceived negative impact that, say medium

density development, may have on the area. This is understandable when the

surrounding area is single level detached dwellings.

Given Council’s intent to undertake a quality and exemplary development on the

land, it is recommended that a Land Management Agreement be noted on the titles

over the recommended four allotments at the time of title issue and prior to sale, to

limit development on the subject allotments to single level detached dwellings to

preserve the character and form of the area.

Public consultation for revocation

The public consultation process for the subject land closed on 21 December 2018

and involved:

 the placement of a notice in the Southern Times Messenger newspaper on 28

November 2018 outlining the relevant details of the proposal, inviting written

submissions and providing contact officer details,

 the placement of information folders at our five Customer Service Centres at

Noarlunga, Aberfoyle Park, Willunga, Woodcroft and Aldinga outlining relevant

details of the proposal, inviting written submissions and providing contact

officer details,

 letters of explanation being posted to 52 adjacent landowners inviting written

submissions and providing contact officer details (refer attachment 2 to this

agenda report for the location of those notified by letter),

 the erection of signs on the subject land extending over the duration of the

public consultation period (24 days), and;

 the placement of a notice with supporting documentation under ‘Your Say’ on

the City Of Onkaparinga website, which included contact officer details and the

opportunity to provide answers to specific questions relating to the proposal.

Submissions

As a result of the public consultation process for the portion of land, 155

submissions were received (10 supporting and 145 objecting) from 147 contributors

(some objections were duplicated). The 155 submissions in total represent 5

individually received submissions together with 150 ‘Your Say’ responses.

Of the 150 submissions on the ‘Your Say’ survey tool, only 24 respondents

downloaded the Project Information document and only 10 respondents

downloaded the Council Report. Both of these documents provide important

information relating to the OSSMP and the rationale behind the proposed revocation

of portion of the subject reserve.

In summarising the comments contained in the submissions received:

Responses received supporting the proposal

 In all the years we have lived here we have never seen anybody use this land.

We walk past most days, twice walking our dogs and never see anybody on it.

I would rather see it sold off and then the other parks around looked after a bit

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

119 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

more. Since this land has had questions raised about its sale, we have been

harassed to sign petitions to not sell it by adjacent land owners and have been

threatened because we would not sign the petition. One person also stated he

would sign it on our behalf then. Not happy.

 Given the land bordered in yellow will be retained as community reserve, I

support the sale of the land bordered in red. Just so you know, there has been

a lot of misinformation being spread in the McLaren Vale community about this.

There is a video going around (being shared by one of your councillors)

showing all of the land, making it look like both portions will be sold. People

are contacting Council all up in arms about it, not knowing the facts.

 Despite the recent save the valley view campaign organised by the surrounding

tenants, the vacant land is clearly not used to its full potential. Building

affordable housing which could be purchased by local young families such as

mine would be a great incentive. Besides, it’s only a portion of the reserve,

makes sense to me.

 It is not used much and for those who want to walk dogs etc, there is still

plenty of space available

 There are enough green areas, we need more houses or Community Centres

 It’s a small portion of land next to developed areas. Doesn’t seem much of a

loss

 I believe 4 houses could be built, bringing more people into McLaren Vale and

ratepayers

 Only if proceeds can be directed and allocated to the F2TVT (Flat to the Vale

Trail) project. This is for a shared path between McLaren Vale and McLaren

Flat. This way the local community can see benefit directly from land sale.

 I’ve never seen anyone using that land.

Responses to concerns received

There were a number of respondents who provided multiple submissions.

Summaries of the main objections are detailed below. Like concerns have been

grouped together to enable a more general response to be provided to cover

similar concerns.

Concerns

 The reserve contributes to the feeling of open space.

 Town population is increasing so it is important to retain public land.

 More parks and more open spaces are needed.

 McLaren Vale has little enough green space as it is without reducing it further.

 This is one of the remaining open spaces in the township and should be left as

such.

 This space ought to be used as originally intended, for recreational purposes

and to preserve the increasing limited green space within the township.

Response

Less than half of the subject reserve (approx. 3,000 m²) was identified as surplus

to open space requirements through the OSSMP. An extensive public consultation

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

120 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

process occurred prior to the adoption of the OSSMP by Council. No public

objection was received to the identification of approximately half of the reserve as

surplus to the requirements of the OSSMP.

Taking into consideration future population growth and the additional open space

provision inherited from new housing developments, the disposal of this land

(approx. 3,000m2) within this planning district will result in an overall allocation of

7.27 hectares of open space per 1000 head of population. This is well above the

guideline provisions set out in the OSSMP of 4-5 hectares per 1000 head of

population.

Within 500m of the subject land there are two district family reserves, both with

playgrounds and comprising a total reserve area of 6.14 hectares.

Concerns

 This is the only reserve in McLaren Vale that has views of the hills, vineyards

and ocean. Under Councils proposal there will no longer be a view in McLaren

Vale incorporating the hills and sea from a public reserve to be enjoyed by

many.

Response

If the subject portion of land is ultimately revoked and disposed of as proposed, the

views of the hills, vineyards and ocean will still be available from the balance of the

reserve (albeit not from exactly the same vantage point).

Concerns

 The reserve is one of the best places to watch the Tour Down Under

 The reserve is used by many people, especially dog walkers.

 Many children walk to school via this park.

 I do not drive so I cannot visit other reserves.

 I cannot walk far so it is nice to be able to just pop out of my front door to see

the sunset.

 We often sit here and look at the stars.

 When grandchildren visit, it is nice for them to be able to have room to kick the

ball on the reserve.

Response

The subject land being proposed for revocation and disposal represents less than

half of the total reserve, leaving a substantial balance as open space land available

for enjoyment by the community. Spectators of the Tour Down Under will still have

approximately 4,000 m2 of reserve land from which to view the race while access

from the other points of the intersection will remain unchanged.

Concerns

 The portion proposed to remain reserve is next to a 70km p/h road and not

suitable for potential children’s play equipment. It would be dangerous for kids

to play closer to the 70km p/h road. The proposed portion to set aside for a

children’s playground is adjacent to a road which traffic moves at a fast rate.

 Let’s keep the entire reserve and develop it.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

121 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 It is a prominent parcel of land that could be more used if some further

development took place e.g. tree planting, picnic facility, sculpture park. Put in

more leisure items like trees, play areas, and perhaps a Barbeque or two.

 Once sold we lose the ability to develop it into a park in the future.

 The land is essentially unused primarily because Council has not invested in

creating a space which fulfils the sites potential.

Response

The subject portion of reserve land has not been identified for development due to

the open space service levels being met within the area.

Our Council endorsed Open Space Strategic Management Plan outlines the levels of

service for open space. In this case there would only be a future need to develop

the reserve if further residential development occurred in the immediate vicinity of

the reserve. The undeveloped land to the south of Tatachilla Road and to the west

of Caffrey Street form part of the Character Preservation District under the current

development plan. The Character Preservation (McLaren Vale) Act 2012 states this

land cannot be subdivided for residential development.

The land to the north and east of the reserve has very limited development

opportunity and falls within the 500m service area of Gammel Tassie Reserve,

being a 6.14 hectare district family reserve.

Concerns

 Adjoining homes would be devalued.

 More building will eventually devalue all homes in McLaren Vale.

 Adjoining land owners will lose their views.

Response

If the subject portion of reserve land is ultimately revoked, disposed of and

developed as proposed in this report, it will result in four new allotments, consistent

in size and form to the surrounding developments with the potential for single level

detached dwellings only (controlled by the proposed Land Management

Agreement).

The views to the south from the adjoining dwelling on Caffrey Street (whilst

impacted to a degree) are currently limited by the vegetation in that allotment

which restricts views from their property over the subject land.

The adjoining dwelling on Valley View Drive has views from the windows on the

southern side of the house which may be impacted by any future development

however they will have more privacy in their property and side yard areas, which

they currently do not experience.

We have no evidence to suggest any future development of the subject land would

devalue the adjoining properties or any other properties in McLaren Vale.

Concerns

 We don’t need more small building blocks that are not in character with

existing blocks.

 It would be a great shame to chop it up into small blocks for residential

purposes. What will be built here? Two story high density homes I presume?

 If sold off to developers, the Council is likely to approve 3 storey apartments.

 What happened to the protection order put in place to stop development?

 The town cannot support anymore development.

 It will impact on the tone and the feel in the culture of our village. This in turn

will impact on tourism and what attracts tourists to our area in the first place.

 The land was given to Council by the developers as a government requirement.

It was done so to allow the correct amount of free space for the future

community.

Response

The land is zoned residential within McLaren Vale Policy Area 39 which will support

four new allotments with 20 metre frontages that will be consistent with the

dominant allotment width pattern in the street.

McLaren Vale Policy Area 39 supports the principle that where a new dwelling is

constructed alongside or within a group of older style residential buildings, the new

dwelling should be of similar height, scale and proportions when viewed from the

street.

The recommendations contained within this report (if approved by Council) require

a Land Management Agreement to be noted on the titles to issue and prior to sale,

to guarantee that the subject allotment will only be developed with single level

detached dwellings.

The OSSMP sets the open space provisions of 4-5 hectares per 1000 head of

population. The disposal of the subject portion of reserve land will still maintain an

overall allocation of 7.27 hectares of open space per 1000 head of population within

this planning district.

Concerns

 Possible traffic congestion at the intersection of Tatachilla Road and Caffrey

Street. We are experiencing heavier traffic already; more housing can only

make it worse!

Response

As part of the development application process Council’s traffic team will assess any

traffic concerns by the proposed development.

It is not anticipated that four additional allotments in this locality will have a major

impact on traffic numbers.

Concerns

 I would like to see a plan for exactly where the sale money would be spent

before proceeding. The two family reserves within 500m identified in the

documents could benefit from more maintenance.

Response

It is proposed that the net proceeds (gross proceeds less revocation and disposal

costs) from the sale of the subject lands (if approved by Council) be assigned to the

Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding of future strategic

land acquisitions and other projects.

9.2 Proposal to close portion of unmade but occupied road adjacent 3903 Main

South Road Sellicks Hill to enable sale

H2

This is a new proposal, concept or issue.

Manager: Jock Berry, Manager Property & Commercial

Report Author: Bryn Adams, Property Officer Transactions

Contact Number: 8488 2001

Attachments: 1. Aerial photograph (1 page)

2. SA Water Request for Encumbrance and Easement

(2 pages)

1. Purpose

This report requests Council approval to commence a Road Process to close a

portion of unmade but occupied road adjacent 3903 Main South Road, Sellicks Hill

and, if closure is approved, sell the closed portion of road to the adjoining

landowner. This report further requests Council approval to grant an encumbrance

and easement in favour of the South Australian Water Corporation (SA Water) as

part of the Road Process Order.

2. Recommendations

That for the unmade portion of legal and open but unmade public road bordered

in red on the aerial photograph at attachment 1 to the agenda report, Council:

1. Declares that the subject portion of road is surplus to road network

requirements and suitable for closure.

2. Approves the commencement of the road closing process, including public

consultation in accordance with the provisions of the Roads (Opening and

Closing) Act 1991.

3. Resolves that the portion of the subject road to be closed bordered in red on

attachment 1 to the agenda report will be excluded from the classification of

community land.

4. Approves the sale of the subject portion of road to the adjoining landowner at

3903 Main South Road, Sellicks Hill at no less than the market value of the

land, subject to all costs associated with sale, transfer and consolidation of

the land with the purchaser’s land being met by the adjoining landowner.

5. Having considered the request for an encumbrance, easement and right of

way received from SA Water (refer Attachment 2 to the agenda report),

approves the making of a Road Process Order which includes the granting of

an encumbrance, easement and right of way to SA Water.

6. Resolves that if any objections or further applications for easements are

received during the public consultation phase of the proposed road closure

(other than the easement to SA Water conditioned above), a further report

will be tabled for Council’s consideration and determination of the matter.

7. Authorises the Chief Executive Officer to sign any documentation necessary to

finalise the road closing process, the creation of the encumbrance and

easement to SA Water, the sale and transfer of the subject road to the

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

172 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

adjoining landowner and the consolidation of the subject land with the

adjoining landowners land.

8. Approves that the proceeds from the sale of the subject road are to be

assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding

of future strategic land acquisitions and other projects.

3. Background

Council’s Property staff have recently identified a long standing occupation of

Council’s legal and open public road. The subject area of occupation is bordered in

red on Attachment 1 and is fully fenced in with the adjoining owner’s land and

appears to have been that way for a number of decades. It has been developed

with a large shearing shed structure and associated rainwater tank, fencing, rock

wall landscaping and open air storage and visually appears to form part of their

existing private property.

Contact has been made with the adjoining owner and occupier of the subject

portion of road, who expressed dismay at the legal status of the road and has

agreed to commence the application process to close and purchase the subject

road.

We have been advised by the applicant that their property was purchased from

their parents approximately 10 years ago, with the property being held by the

applicant’s parents for approximately 30 years prior. The shearing shed building is

longstanding, with council’s oldest available aerial imagery showing the shed in situ

in 1949.

The applicant also provided evidence that supports the applicant’s genuine belief

that their parents purchased the shearing shed back in the 1970s and subsequently

transferred it to the applicant.

The gravel carriageway past the subject land (which will be retained as public road)

provides access to the subject land, 3905 Main South Road, Allotment 271 Old

Sellicks Hill Road and 652 Old Sellick Hill Road. Access to these parcels will not be

affected by the proposed road closure and disposal (if approved by Council).

Plains Road extends to the north and is unmade, and is proposed to form part of

the Willunga Basin Trail. Willunga Basin Trails Incorporated has been contacted

regarding the proposed closure and disposal of the subject road and has no

objections to the proposal.

SA Water has an active 1050mm water supply pipe located through the subject

road. SA Water has requested a 20 metre wide easement for ‘water supply

purposes’ and ‘right of way’ to be granted in favour of SA Water as part of the Road

Process Order.

SA Water has further requested an encumbrance over the Certificate of Title to

acknowledge the existence of the shearing shed within the newly created

easement.

It is proposed that the easement and encumbrance be formally approved as part of

this initial report to avoid the need to provide an update report at a later date to

Council for the creation of the easement and right of way and encumbrance.

The final survey plan will note a 20 metre wide easement in favour of SA Water,

which will occur as part of the Road Process Order.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

173 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

An authorisation to occupy the subject land is currently in place with the applicant

as an interim measure until closure and disposal can be undertaken.

4. Financial Implications

A condition of the road closing, sale and transfer (if approved by Council) will be

that the adjoining landowners pay no less than the market value of the land and

meet all costs associated with completing the road closing process and

consolidation of the subject land with their land, to form a single allotment.

In this particular case, the market value of the land will reflect the existence of the

easement, right of way and encumbrance.

Proceeds from the sale of the closed road (if approved by Council) will be assigned

to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding of future

strategic land acquisitions and other projects.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Discussion

If Council approval is

not granted, a

substantial building

occupied by the

adjoining landowner

will remain on Council’s

public road.

Council manages its land ownership portfolio in an

efficient and sustainable manner by continually

reviewing its assets and considers disposal options

where there is little or no community benefit to be

gained from retention of the land.

No present or future strategic or operational needs

have been identified that merits retention of the

subject road.

From a liability and risk management viewpoint it is

desirable to dispose of land with no strategic or

operational benefit and reduce council’s risk

exposure.

Failing to deal with this parcel of land in the

recommended manner will necessitate the continued

authorisation for the existing uses, which is

considered an administrative burden when the land

is not considered necessary for retention.

Now that the improvements have been confirmed as

located on the legal road, the opportunity is being

taken to consider the closure and disposition of a

portion of road that has no road network benefit.

174 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Council.

The subject road is

declared surplus and

suitable for disposal.

Consistent with all proposed land and road disposals,

the subject parcel of land was assessed against a

range of strategic and operational criteria prior to

being classified as surplus to council’s needs and

suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land assessment

indicates that the potential commercial return that

may be realised through land sale, together with the

removal of liability issues and administration burden,

would appear to outweigh any unidentified benefits

that may result from retention.

Closure of the road and disposal of the land is

considered preferable to retention indefinitely for

little or no community benefit.

Overcome an existing

occupation.

Dealing with this matter through a road closure and

disposal recognises the unfortunate predicament

that the adjoining landowner now faces and shows a

compassionate approach from Council to resolve this

situation.

On balance, it is considered appropriate to proceed with the closure of the portion

of the unmade road, with sale of that portion bordered in red (with an area of

approximately 1,260 m2 subject to survey) to the applicant, subject to the grant of

an easement in favour of SA Water to encapsulate an existing water main.

6. Additional information

Internal investigations regarding the use of the road

The subject proposal has been extensively circularised within Council and no

concerns have been raised to the closure and disposal.

Council’s Asset Planner has identified that the unmade road is proposed for the

Willunga Basin Trail. As the occupation is longstanding and the balance corridor will

remain legal and open public road, the closure and disposal will not adversely

impact upon the Willunga Basin Trail’s future proposals.

Council’s Road Network Planner has confirmed that the proposal does not prevent

the future construction of Plains Road between Main South Road and Chaff Mill

Road, although there are no current plans for this portion of road to be

constructed.

Council does not have any infrastructure located within the proposed portion of

road to be closed.

External investigations regarding the use of the road

SA Water

SA Water was contacted to provide comment on the proposal after internal

circularisation identified that their pipework runs through the subject portion of

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

175 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

road. SA Water confirmed that a 1,050mm water main traverses the land. SA Water

has confirmed that they would not object to the road closure, subject to a right of

way and easement of 20 metres width being granted in favour of SA Water to

encapsulate the existing water main. SA Water will also require that an

encumbrance be noted on the applicant’s Certificate of Title to notify the current

and any future owners that the existing shearing shed is constructed over the

easement and may be impacted if the water main were to burst and SA Water

needed to conduct maintenance on the pipe in that location.

Willunga Basin Water Company

The Willunga Basin Water Company was contacted for comment as they also have

infrastructure installed within the road corridor. Willunga Basin Water Company

advised that their pipeline is not within the subject portion of the land proposed to

be disposed and is located within the road approximately 2 to 4 metres to the south

and east of the current boundary fence. The Willunga Basin Water Company did not

raise any objections to the proposal.

Willunga Basin Trails Incorporated

The road corridor in this location links Main South Road to Plains Road, which is

predominantly unmade. Contact has been made with Willunga Basin Trails

Incorporated, who propose to use portion of Plains Road for the Willunga Basin

Trail project. Willunga Basin Trails Incorporated has advised that they have no

objection to the closure and sale of the subject portion of road bordered in red in

this report, given that the balance of the road will remain open for access and users

of the trail would not currently use the portion of the road proposed to be closed

due to the longstanding fencing and structures.

Adjoining land owner

A letter was sent to the owner of the adjoining land to the north at 3885 Main

South Road, Sellicks Hill, requesting that they confirm whether they have any

interest in the portion of road or any objections to the proposed closure and

disposal. Preliminary discussions with this landowner have indicated that they do

not have any interest in the proposed road closure and disposal, though they will

still have an opportunity to submit any objection or interest during the formal public

consultation process associated with the road closure.

Zoning

The subject land and portion of road is held within the Primary Production Zone

under the current version of the Onkaparinga Council Development Plan. The

Primary Production Zone restricts the subdivision of land, not allowing the creation

of any additional allotments of less than 16 hectares in area.

The land is also within the McLaren Vale Character Preservation District as

prescribed by the Character Preservation (McLaren Vale) Act 2012, which does not

allow subdivision to create any additional allotments for residential purposes within

the District.

In accordance with Council’s Disposal of Land and Assets Policy, the subject portion

of road will be consolidated with the applicant’s title to form a single allotment.

Attachments: 1. Aerial Photograph of Subject Land (1 page)

2. Aerial Photograph of adjacent landowners written to at

Morphett Vale (1 page)

3. Public Consultation responses (3 pages)

1. Purpose

This report details the outcomes from the public consultation phase of the proposal

to revoke the community land classification of a portion of Council land 3 Emberton

Place, Morphett Vale and recommends a request be forwarded to the Minister for

Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for consent to revoke the subject

land from its community land classification in accordance with the legislative

procedure.

2. Recommendations

That for the council owned land described as Portion of Allotment 223 in

Deposited Plan 6958, comprised in Certificate of Title Volume 5101 Folio 814, at

3 Emberton Place, Morphett Vale and delineated in red on attachment 1 to the

agenda report,

Council:

1. Notes that for the subject portion of land, seven submissions (three

supporting, three objections and one unsure) were received during the public

consultation phase of the community land revocation process.

2. Having considered the submissions received, resolves to:

a. proceed with the process to revoke the subject land from its community

land classification on the basis that:

 the feedback received from the community appears to be balanced,

both for and against the proposed revocation, although it is worth

noting that only 3 objections were received from 54 landowners

notified in writing,

 the OSSMP identifies the land as surplus to open space

requirements,

 our internal consultation process confirms that there is no strategic

or operational need to justify retention,

 our strategic land assessment indicates that the potential

commercial return that may be realised through a land sale,

together with the savings to be achieved from the removal of

grounds maintenance and liability issues, would appear to

outweigh the community benefits from retention, and;

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

180 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 the subject portion of land proposed for revocation and sale is

ideally located and sized for residential development.

OR

b. discontinue the revocation process for the subject land in recognition of

the community objection that has resulted from the public consultation

phase of the process.

3. Recommends that a request be forwarded to the Minister for Transport,

Infrastructure and Local Government for approval to revoke the subject land

from its community land classification to enable disposal on the open market.

4. Notes that a final update report will be presented to Council once the

Minister’s decision regarding the proposed revocation has been received, to

enable finalisation of the revocation and disposal process.

3. Background

At its meeting on 17 July 2018, Council declared ‘in principle’ that the subject land

bordered in red on attachment 1 to this agenda report was surplus to requirements

and suitable for disposal and approved the commencement of the public

consultation phase of the revocation of community land process. The public

consultation concluded on 28 September 2018. Council was in caretaker mode

during the election period therefore this report has been prepared for the February

2019 Council meeting allowing the opportunity for Elected Members to familiarise

themselves with the background of the report and the mandated revocation

process.

The proposal arose from the subject parcel of land being identified in the Open

Space Strategic Management Plan (OSSMP) as surplus to open space requirements.

The OSSMP included an analysis of council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs.

This presents the opportunity to proactively consider disposal of the subject land to

enable the proceeds to be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to

assist with the funding of future strategic property acquisitions and other

community projects.

4. Financial Implications

If the revocation process is ultimately approved by Council, it is proposed that the

net proceeds (gross proceeds less revocation and disposal costs) from the sale of

the subject land be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist

with the funding of future strategic land acquisitions and other community projects.

Disposal of the land will remove Council’s on-going financial obligations in respect

to maintenance and risk associated with the subject land.

All sales of land will be at no less than the market value of the land.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Discussion

The subject reserve is

not approved for

revocation and

disposal.

Council manages its land ownership portfolio in an

efficient and sustainable manner by continually

reviewing its assets and considering disposal options

where little or no community benefit is derived from

retention of the land.

Council has previously endorsed the OSSMP which

identifies land to be retained. The subject land has

not been identified for retention as part of the

OSSMP therefore it is appropriate to consider the

subject land for possible revocation and disposal.

There has not been any present or future

development identified for the subject reserve nor

has there been any strategic or operational need

identified that justifies retention.

Failing to deal with this parcel of land in the

recommended manner will result in ongoing

maintenance costs and public liability being held by

council when there is no strategic or operational

requirement for the land to remain in council’s

ownership.

Revoking community

land without adequately

considering community

objections.

It is a requirement of the Local Government Act

1999 that Council first considers all objections and

submissions before approaching the Minister for

Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for

approval to revoke community land.

Community

dissatisfaction that the

subject land is

approved for revocation

and eventual disposal.

Whilst there may be some resultant concerns

expressed by members of the public who have

opposed the revocation and eventual sale of the

subject land, it is the responsibility of Council to

decide the most appropriate way forward. These

decisions take into account the level of use of the

reserve, the objections received as part of the

consultation process together with the rationality

behind the objections and the long term priorities of

Council.

Concern that this

recommendation will

set a precedent for

future disposals.

All applications to revoke and dispose of community

land are considered on their individual merits and

are decided based on the particular circumstances

that exist. It is not considered that a precedent will

be set if Council approves the continuation of this

particular revocation and disposal.

disposals, the subject land is first assessed against a

range of strategic and operational criteria prior to

being classified as surplus to council’s needs and ‘in

principle’ suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land use

assessment indicates that the subject land is not

required as reserve.

Revocation and disposal of the land is considered

preferable to retention indefinitely for little or no

community benefit.

Revocation and disposal of the land will enable net

proceeds to be assigned for future more strategic

land acquisitions and projects that will ultimately

provide more benefit to the community.

Disposal will avoid the need for continued ongoing

operational costs associated with maintaining and

holding the land.

6. Discussion

Public consultation for revocation

The public consultation process for the subject land closed on 28 September 2018

and involved:

 the placement of a notice in the Southern Times Messenger newspaper on 5

September 2018 outlining the relevant details of the proposal, inviting writing

submissions and providing contact officer details,

 the placement of information folders at our five Customer Service Centres at

Noarlunga, Aberfoyle Park, Willunga, Woodcroft and Aldinga outlining relevant

details of the proposal, inviting written submissions and providing contact

officer details,

 letters of explanation being posted to 54 adjacent land holders inviting

comment (refer attachment 2 of this agenda report for the location of those

notified by letter),

 the erection of signs on the subject land extending over the duration of the

public consultation period (24 days), and;

 the placement of a notice with supporting documentation under ‘Your Say’ on

the City Of Onkaparinga website.

Submissions

As a result of the public consultation process for the portion of the subject land,

seven submissions were received (three in support, three objecting and one

unsure). The seven submissions in total represent individual received submissions

together with ‘Your Say’ responses.

In summarising the comments contained in the submissions received;

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

183 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Support

 Better off selling and using the revenue for other initiatives rather than having

unused land that could be used for illegal dumping

 This land is unused and unlikely to be of use for public

 The land is not being used, so rather than council having to mow/maintain it

you should sell it and use the funds to improve your parks and reserves or to

help keep rates down.

Unsure

Concerns

 The sale of land has been pushed through by other Councils without and

against resident willingness in the past. Why would Onkaparinga want people

to have a say on this land if it can be sold for development?

Response

The Local Government Act 1999 seeks to ensure that members of the community

are involved in the revocation process, and to provide them with the opportunity to

make submissions for Council to consider. Council’s decision will take into account

the level of use of the reserve, the objections received as part of the consultation

process, together with the rationality behind the objections and the long term

priorities of Council.

Responses to concerns received

Concerns

 Council need to improve the vacant land to reserve/garden, not allowing more

development in the area.

Response

The subject land has been identified as surplus to the requirements of the Open

Space Network and is not identified for any future development by Council. The

OSSMP and district mapping sets the provision of open space at 4-5 hectares per

1000 head of population. The subject parcel of land is 620m2 and is located within

the Central North planning district. Taking into consideration future population

growth and the additional open space provision inherited from new housing

developments, the disposal of this land will result in an overall allocation of 6.35

hectares of open space per 1000 head of population.

Concerns

 Land should not be sold off

Response

Consistent with all proposed revocations and disposals, the subject land is first

assessed against a range of strategic and operational criteria prior to being

classified as surplus to council’s needs and ‘in principle’ suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land use assessment indicates that the subject

land is not required as a reserve.

Concerns

 To keep more open spaces

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

184 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Response

The OSSMP included an analysis of Council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs. The subject land is within the Central North Planning District

which is well serviced with open spaces.

Council has recognised that portion of the original reserve parcel should be retained

as open space for addition to the adjoining reserve, with the balance vacant land

sold as a residential allotment.

Summation

On balance, based on the preceding information, it is considered appropriate to

proceed with the revocation process for the subject land.

3. Public Consultation responses (3 pages)

1. Purpose

This report details the outcomes from the public consultation phase of the proposal

to revoke the community land classification of Council reserve land at 113 Liguria

Crescent, Noarlunga Downs, and recommends a request be forwarded to the

Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for consent to revoke

the subject land from its community land classification in accordance with the

legislative procedure.

2. Recommendations

That for the council owned reserve described as Allotment 287 in Deposited Plan

23721, comprised in Certificate of Title Volume 5648 Folio 687, at 113 Liguria

Crescent, Noarlunga Downs and delineated in red on attachment 1 to the agenda

report;

Council:

1. Notes that for the subject land, seven submissions (five supporting and two

objections) were received during the public consultation phase of the

community land revocation process.

2. Having considered the submissions received, resolves to:

a. proceed with the process to revoke the subject land from its community

land classification on the basis that:

 there were more submissions from the public supporting the

proposed revocation than from those objecting,

 our Open Space Strategic Management Plan (OSSMP) identifies the

land as surplus to open space requirements,

 our internal consultation process confirms that there is no strategic

or operational need to justify retention,

 our strategic land assessment indicates that the potential

commercial return that may be realised through a land sale,

together with the savings to be achieved from the removal of

grounds maintenance and liability issues, would appear to

outweigh the community benefits from retention, and;

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

192 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 the subject reserve land is surrounded by residential development

that is fully serviced with existing infrastructure which represents

a unique opportunity to facilitate possible future residential infill to

the benefit of the city as a whole.

OR

b. discontinue the revocation process for the subject land in recognition of

the community objection that has resulted from the public consultation

phase of the process.

3. Recommends that a request be forwarded to the Minister for Transport,

Infrastructure and Local Government for approval to revoke the subject land

from its community land classification to enable disposal on the open market.

4. Notes that a final update report will be presented to Council once the

Minister’s decision regarding the proposed revocation has been received, to

enable finalisation of the revocation and disposal process.

3. Background

At its meeting on 17 July 2018, Council declared ‘in principle’ that the subject

reserve bordered in red on attachment 1 to this agenda report was surplus to

requirements and suitable for disposal and approved the commencement of the

public consultation phase of the revocation of community land process. The public

consultation concluded on 28 September 2018. Council was in caretaker mode

during the election period therefore this report has been prepared for the February

2019 Council meeting allowing the opportunity for Elected Members to familiarise

themselves with the background of the report and the mandated revocation

process.

The proposal arose from the subject parcel of land being identified in the Open

Space Strategic Management Plan (OSSMP) as surplus to open space requirements.

The OSSMP included an analysis of council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs.

This presents the opportunity to proactively consider disposal of the subject land to

enable the proceeds to be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to

assist with the funding of future strategic property acquisitions and other

community projects.

4. Financial Implications

If the revocation process is ultimately approved by Council, it is proposed that the

net proceeds (gross proceeds less revocation and disposal costs) from the sale of

the subject land be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist

with the funding of future strategic land acquisitions and other community projects.

Disposal of the land will remove Council’s on-going financial obligations in respect

to maintenance and risk associated with the subject land.

All sales of land will be at no less than the market value of the land.

Identify Discussion

The subject reserve is

not approved for

revocation and

disposal.

Council manages its land ownership portfolio in an

efficient and sustainable manner by continually

reviewing its assets and considering disposal options

where little or no community benefit is derived from

retention of the land.

Council has previously endorsed the OSSMP which

identifies the land to be retained. The subject land

has not been identified for retention as part of the

OSSMP therefore it is appropriate to consider the

subject land for possible revocation and disposal.

There has not been any present or future

development identified for the subject reserve nor

has there been any strategic or operational need

identified that justifies retention.

Failing to deal with this parcel of land in the

recommended manner will result in ongoing

maintenance costs and public liability being held by

council when there is no strategic or operational

requirement for the land to remain in council’s

ownership.

Revoking community

consultation process together with the rationality

behind the objections and the long term priorities of

Council.

Concern that this

recommendation will

set a precedent for

All applications to revoke and dispose of community

land are considered on their individual merits and

are decided based on the particular circumstances

that exist. It is not considered that a precedent will

be set if Council approves the continuation of this

particular revocation and disposal.

The public consultation process for the subject land closed on

28 September 2018 and involved:

 the placement of a notice in the Southern Times Messenger newspaper on 5

September 2018 outlining the relevant details of the proposal, inviting writing

submissions and providing contact officer details,

 the placement of information folders at our five Customer Service Centres at

Noarlunga, Aberfoyle Park, Willunga, Woodcroft and Aldinga outlining relevant

details of the proposal, inviting written submissions and providing contact

officer details,

 letters of explanation being posted to 79 adjacent landholders, inviting

notified by letter),

 the erection of signs on the subject land extending over the duration of the

public consultation period (24 days), and;

 the placement of a notice with supporting documentation under ‘Your Say’ on

the City Of Onkaparinga website.

Submissions

As a result of the public consultation process for the subject land, seven

submissions were received (five in support and two objecting). The seven

submissions in total represent individual received submissions together with ‘Your

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

195 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

In summarising the comments contained in the submissions received;

Support

 The proposal to sell the land is an excellent one.

 Good to see we have some forward thinking people.

 Sale proceeds can be put to good use.

 Maybe someone can build something that will keep the younger community

occupied and entertained.

 So long as it doesn’t go to community housing, increased use of space is

always good.

 Empty blocks are useless.

 Good place for a few more houses, which will help to keep the costs of housing

down through increased supply.

 Council can use the funds from the sale for other things.

 The land gets dry and dusty in summer and is a bit of an eye sore and a waste

of space. Selling it would be a win all round.

Responses to concerns received

Concerns

 Shouldn’t be sold for the sake of selling it.

Response

The subject land was identified as surplus to open space requirements through the

OSSMP. If ultimately disposed of, the proceeds will be assigned to the Strategic

Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist with the funding of future strategic acquisitions

and other projects which in turn benefits the community.

Concerns

 Try putting playground equipment or adult gym or barbeque area and make it

somewhere for people to go.

Response

The subject land has not been identified for any future development. There is a

reserve on Taranaki Crescent (150m from the subject land) that currently has a

playground and has been identified for future development to a neighbourhood

family status.

Concerns

 We need the space due to propensity to medium density housing.

Response

The subject land has been identified as surplus to the Open Space Network. The

OSSMP and district mapping sets the provision of open space at 4-5 hectares per

1000 head of population. The subject parcel of land is 5,340m2 and is located

within the Central North planning district. Taking into consideration future

population growth and the additional open space provision inherited from new

housing developments, the disposal of this land will result in an overall allocation of

6.35 hectares of open space per 1000 head of population in this district.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

196 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Any future development will be assessed by Council in accordance with the City of

Onkaparinga development plan.

Concerns

 Make the vacant land more attractive and not fill with housing or businesses.

Response

The subject land has not been identified for any future development by Council.

The area is well serviced with open space and there are future plans to upgrade the

nearby playground on Taranaki Crescent Reserve.

The land is held within the Residential Zone, Medium Density Policy Area 40 and

Targeted Infill Precinct 36 under the current version of the Onkaparinga Council

Development Plan. These zoning policies were introduced to enable higher density

residential development within approximately 200 metres of existing District and

Regional Centre Zones. The intent of this zoning is to support high quality infill

residential development within walking distance of existing commercial, community

and public transportation facilities.

Summation

On balance, based on the preceding information, it is considered appropriate to

proceed with the revocation process for the subject land.

The proposal arose from the subject parcels of land being identified in the Open

Space Strategic Management Plan (OSSMP) as surplus to open space requirements.

The OSSMP included an analysis of council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

If the revocation process is ultimately approved by Council, it is proposed that the

net proceeds (gross proceeds less revocation and disposal costs) from the sale of

the subject land be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to assist

with the funding of future strategic land acquisitions and other community projects.

Disposal costs are deemed to include the necessary requirement to plant new trees

to offset canopy loss that may result from the subsequent development of the

subject parcel of land following disposal. In this case the amount of $4,542 was

previously approved by Council and will be paid into the Urban Tree Fund to offset

canopy loss resulting from the disposal of the subject land (if the revocation and

disposal is successful).

Such an approach is consistent with the intent and philosophies of Council’s Green

City Strategic Management Plan and OSSMP.

Disposal of the land will remove Council’s on-going financial obligations in respect

to maintenance and risk associated with the subject land.

 the placement of information folders at our five Customer Service Centres at

As a result of the public consultation process for the subject land, 17 submissions

were received (five in support, 11 objecting and one unsure). The seventeen

submissions in total represent individual received submissions together with ‘Your

In summarising the comments contained in the submissions received;

Support

 Young people need affordable housing, bring it on. The protestors live in

homes already, ignore them.

 Not used as open space, trees limit use.

 Cannot be used as open space because of trees.

 Land is unused and unlikely to be of use for public compared to private,

especially considering availability of nearby public park land opposite.

 I support selling this land on the proviso that the roundabout and the land

adjacent are improved to make them much nicer. Something like a rock wall,

maybe with the road names and more trees and bushes to improve the look of

the roundabout.

Unsure

Concerns

 Yes I support the sale of the land but not if it is developed into tiny allotments

that will increase the traffic density in the area.

Response

Any future development of the land will be assessed by Council’s planning team.

Council’s traffic engineers will be consulted prior to any planning consent being

granted.

Responses to concerns received

208 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 It is nice to have parcels of land on or near main roads that aren’t built on.

However would be better if landscaped to make them more user friendly.

Response

There are landscaped open spaces directly opposite and diagonally opposite the

subject land that also meet Rowley Road and Quinliven Road. If the subject land is

ultimately disposed of and developed there will be two of the four corners of the

roundabout with landscaped open space remaining.

Concerns

 Keep land open for reserve/garden not building development.

Response

The subject land has been identified as surplus to the requirements of the Open

Space Network and has not been identified for any future development by Council.

The OSSMP included an analysis of Council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs. If the subject land is disposed of the area still meets the

required service levels for open space.

Concerns

 Selling land for the sake of nobody uses it when you took your survey doesn’t

mean it isn’t used. Is there anything there for mums with young children to

use? Or have you filled it with trees in the middle so people can’t get out and

kick a ball or play a game of cricket? The usual plan for open spaces that

people can use to play ball sports can’t be facilitated here as it has trees in

stupid places.

Response

The subject land has been identified as surplus to the requirements of the Open

Space Network and has not been identified for any future development by Council.

The land borders a busy main distributor road and does not have any facilities.

Symonds Reserve is a large (approx. 62,500m2) district reserve within 500m of the

subject land that has seating, a number of play grounds, a dog park, a BMX track, a

skateboard half pipe, tennis courts and netball courts and has a community centre.

Myerhoff Street reserve is a medium (approx. 4,900m2) local reserve within 500m

of the subject land that has seating and a playground. Both of these reserves

provide open space and are considered more appealing to the community due to

the available facilities and their locations being away from main distributor roads

therefore providing improved safety for children.

Concerns

 The land should not be sold

Response

Consistent with all proposed revocations and disposals, the subject land is first

assessed against a range of strategic and operational criteria prior to being

classified as surplus to council’s needs and ‘in principle’ suitable for disposal.

In this particular case our strategic land use assessment indicates that the subject

land is not required as a reserve.

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

209 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Concerns

 No! Why? Because Council has not conveyed in their proposal above detail of

their "network of high quality open spaces that meet the future needs of the

community."

To provide a fair and reasoned response, 'knowledge of nearby alternative

open space areas, together with safe easy accessibility, particularly for children

to want to be' is needed! That is, safe places easily accessible where children

are excited by, want to play, socialise with their friends, and be challenged

need to be, evenly and fairly distributed throughout residential areas across the

City!

ALSO:

1) Is there security for children, e.g. adults exercising, walkers, traffic and/or

residential oversight of the reserve.

2) It is noted the area in question for sale is not of significant size and lacks

any play areas, bike tracks, trees or picnic development to attract all ages -

it appears from the overview to be a small portion of undeveloped vacant

land at the corner of the intersection so I find it is not unsurprising it is not

currently utilised.

If the concerns conveyed above can be met by Council or even enhanced then

I would strongly support the proposed sale.

Response

Whilst the subject land does not provide any features that would make it attractive

for children to play there is a District and a Local reserve within 500m of the

subject land. These reserves address the respondents concerns.

Concerns

 I think instead it should be turned into a small playground/recreation area for

children and families &

 Why not a much needed toddler playground?

Response

The subject land has been identified as surplus to requirement of the Open Space

Network and has not been identified for any future development by Council. The

District and Local reserves within 500m of the subject land have been identified for

future upgrades. Revocation and disposal of the subject land will enable net

proceeds to be assigned for future more strategic land acquisitions and projects

which may include expediting the upgrade of reserves.

Concerns

 Open space is important. It’s critical to our wellbeing and our wildlife. Not

every bit of land needs to be built on it or used by the community daily. There

are benefits to the community from purely being an open space. If it is costing

money to maintain then consideration should be given to returning it to its

natural state. You are going to ruin Onkaparinga council area by having 300sq

m blocks everywhere and on every available bit of land. It is really

disappointing

 My input in objecting to the sale is based on the Recreation Open Space

Network plan that shows the area in question is more than 400m from any

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

210 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

local, district, or regional recreation open space. To revoke this land only

exacerbates the situation, Aldinga beach is in need of more open space and

taking it from here to improve elsewhere will do nothing to improve the

situation. The area is undersupplied and cannot afford to lose any open space.

Response

Open space is recognised as important as part of Councils open space provisions.

The OSSMP is a major review of the Recreation and Open Space Network 2008-

2013. It provides clear direction for the development of Open Space District Plans.

There is a large (approx. 62,500m2) District Local Reserve within 500m of the

subject land. The OSSMP and district mapping sets the provision of open space at

4-5 hectares per 1000 head of population. The subject parcel of land is

approximately 1,800m2 and is located within the Southern Planning District. Taking

into consideration future population growth and the additional open space provision

inherited from new housing developments, the disposal of this land will result in an

overall allocation of 7.27 hectares of open space per 1000 head of population which

is well above the open space provision for the Southern Planning District.

Concerns

 The noise pollution factor caused by all the traffic at the roundabout is

counterbalanced by the community parkland on three corners of the

intersection which also provides safe vision to oncoming traffic. The planted

trees are now maturing and are also providing significant canopy coverage

which we believe is the lowest in the Onkaparinga Council area. These trees

and this community land are valued highly by the residents who benefit from

them.

Response

We are not aware of any correlation between open space and counterbalances to

noise pollution. In this case it could be argued that if the vacant land was

developed the dwellings would cut out some of the noise pollution to existing

surrounding dwellings. If the land is ultimately sold and developed there are

minimum setback requirements from the road that are consistent with the setbacks

of the existing houses on the adjacent corner of the roundabout.

Based on the existing calculated area of canopy coverage on this reserve, our Parks

and Natural Resources Team have calculated that the necessary plantings required

to maintain the status quo plus 50%, is 6 medium trees. In the initial revocation

report considered by Council it was approved that the cost of $4,542 to plant and

establish 6 medium trees is to be deducted from the proceeds and assigned to the

Urban Tree fund if the land is ultimately disposed. There are large road verges in

the streets surrounding the subject land which have been identified for tree

planting in line with our Green City SMP.

Concerns

 I formally wish to extend my objection to the proposed sale as my property sits

on the boundary of the land and I believe any housing development will affect

my climate control and privacy. I built my house on the boundary due to the

adjoining reserve. My other concerns are extended to those who access this

parcel of land. It is a shortcut for children going to and from school as they can

bypass the roundabout and the hazards of a heavy traffic area. It is a well-used

track for local people walking their dogs, children and for general pleasure

activities. If a fence is extended down Quinliven Road a blind corner may be

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

211 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

created at the roundabout. The roundabout is a heavily used access point to

the local amenities.

Response

Any future development will be subject to standard Council consents which take

into account screening of upper level windows and balcony’s to minimise

overlooking of adjacent areas of private open space and habitable room windows.

Development plan policies set out the minimum required building setbacks and

extent of overshadowing of neighbouring areas of private open space windows and

solar panels. Whilst the land is possibly used as a short cut for walkers, disposal of

the land would have a very minor effect on walkers as it would only increase the

walking distance very minimally, along constructed footpaths. Due to the location of

the subject land on Quinliven Road any children that may be using the land as a

shortcut would be walking to the south of Quinliven Road along Rowley Road.

There are multiple other options for children walking from the school to the south

along Rowley road as the School has southern exits that run along Greenlees

Parade which connect to Rowley Road. These would be considered safer and

quicker options to walk in that direction.

Any future development will be referred to Councils traffic management team who

assess the access to the land and any traffic implications that may be caused.

Summation

On balance, based on the preceding information, it is considered appropriate to

proceed with the revocation process for the subject land.

Manager: Anthony Spartalis, Chief Financial Officer

Report Author: Diane Eckermann, Team Leader Financial Planning and

Analysis

Contact Number: 8384 0121

Attachments: 1. Draft Resource Prioritisation documents 2019-20

(148 pages – provided under separate cover)

1. Purpose

This report seeks approval of draft Resource Prioritisation documents (formerly

known as Resource Allocation Strategies) that will be utilised to prioritise ‘Value

Added’ and ‘New Assets and Significant Upgrade’ projects, programmes and

services for 2019-20.

2. Recommendation

That Council approve the draft Resource Prioritisation documents 2019-20 as

summarised in attachment 1 to the agenda report.

3. Background

This report presents the draft Resource Prioritisation documents (formerly known as

Resource Allocation Strategies) that will be used to prioritise ‘Value Added’ and

‘New Assets and Significant Upgrade’ projects, programmes and services for 2019-

20.

Through application of the criteria outlined in the draft Resource Prioritisation

documents we are able to identify those ‘Value Added’ and ‘New Assets and

Significant Upgrade’ projects, programmes and services that provide the greatest

economic, environmental and community outcomes.

Draft Resource Prioritisation documents are provided for various categories of

projects, programmes and services with the criteria applied for prioritisation

generally being made up of the following:

 alignment with a relevant strategy or plan

 risk management

 volume/number of users

 relative need

 locational importance

 stakeholder/community expectations

 service levels/ standards

 other providers in the market

 cost/benefit ratio.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

314 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

The highest priority ‘Value Added’ and ‘New Assets and Significant Upgrade’

activities will be allocated funding as part of the budget process.

4. Financial Implications

There are no direct financial implications of this report.

That said, application of the criteria outlined in draft Resource Prioritisation

documents ensures our finite financial resources approved through the budget

process are allocated to projects, programmes and services that provide the

greatest economic, environmental and community outcomes.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Mitigation

Failure to set

appropriate

prioritisation criteria

leads to projects,

programmes and

services being allocated

funding that do not

provide the greatest

economic,

environmental and

community outcomes.

Resource Prioritisation documents have been

reviewed and updated by Administration to ensure

they reflect our current strategies and priorities.

This includes updating each document to reflect

Onkaparinga 2035.

9.9 Temporary Road Closure - Falcon GT Nationals 2019

H2

This is a new proposal, concept or issue.

Manager: Matthew Morrissey, Manager Assets and Technical Services

Report Author: Bill Cirocco, Senior Traffic Engineer

Contact Number: 8384 0666

Attachments: 1. Letter application from Ultimate Motorsport Events (2

pages)

2. Road closure map (1 page)

3. Risk management plan (44 pages)

1. Purpose

This report seeks approval for a temporary road closure of Old Willunga Hill Road

from Hailstone Lane to Brookman Road, Willunga as requested by Ultimate

Motorsport Events for the Falcon GT Nationals 2019 event on 21 April 2019

(attachment 1).

2. Recommendations

1. In accordance with Clause G of the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure

Notice dated 22 August 2013 (as presented to Council on 5 July 2016) which

delegates the power to close roads and grant exceptions for events, Council

consents to the proposed road closure of:

 Old Willunga Hill Road, Willunga from Hailstone Lane to Brookman Road

Willunga from 9.00am to 3.00pm on Sunday 21 April 2019 for the Falcon

GT Nationals 2019 event (as shown on attachment 2 to the agenda

report).

2. Council support the Commissioner of Police order that the proposed roads

listed in recommendation 1 be closed, subject to Ultimate Motorsport

Events:

 paying for advertising and management of the temporary road closure for

the Falcon GT Nationals

 notifying all the property owners along the routes and within the

Willunga township, in writing

 advertising the event in advance

 assuming responsibility for any damage to the road and associated

infrastructure resulting from the events

 facilitating the road closure and assisting local residents and road users

through the detours, using marshals and professional traffic management

contractors.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

318 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

3. Background

As a result of community interest in motor sports events the road closure has been

brought to Council for consideration rather than being exercised under the Chief

Executive Officer’s delegation.

The Falcon GT Nationals is a full day motor sport event which requires a road

closure.

In 2018 Council approved the same road closure for the Adelaide Rally and

Willunga Hillclimb event.

The declaration of the event and road orders for the required closures is approved

and issued by the Commissioner of Police under delegation from the Minister for

Transport and Infrastructure.

If Council choose not to support the road closures for the Falcon GT Nationals 2019

event, the Commissioner of Police will generally not approve the road closures.

Under Section 33 of the Road Traffic Act 1961 we are required to give our consent

to the road closure and approval for the use of temporary traffic control devices.

4. Financial Implications

There is no financial impact to the City of Onkaparinga by this event being held. All

costs associated with advertising the event, managing the road closure and

repairing any damage to infrastructure are borne by the event organiser.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Mitigation

Public Liability The event is covered by Public Liability insurance of

$100M through the Confederation of Australian

Motor Sport Ltd (CAMS).

Resident concerns The event organiser will:

 notify adjoining land owners, businesses and

residents in the Willunga township, in writing

 consult with affected landowners, as required

 facilitate the road closures and assist local

residents and road users through the detours,

using marshals and accredited traffic

management contractors

 place advance event notification signage four

weeks prior to the event

 advertise in local papers one week before the

event.

Damage to council

infrastructure

All costs associated with the repair of any damage to

council infrastructure will be borne by the event

organiser.

Emergency Services The event organiser will notify Emergency Services

of the proposed road closures. An event safety plan

is developed and communicated with the event

medical and fire services, available to attend to any

resident emergency if required. (attachment 3)

Council not supporting

the event

The Falcon GT Nationals 2019 will not proceed.

Opportunity

Identify Maximising the opportunity

Economic and

community benefit

 The Falcon GT Nationals is a national event held

every two years. It was last held in SA in 2009.

These events attract tourists to our region

including spectators and participants.

 Any operating surplus will be donated to the

Leukaemia Foundation.

 This event supports local businesses.

 Regional Economic Modelling has shown that

for the two events (Leconfield display and

Willunga Hillclimb) on the one day there is a

$243 800 direct benefit.

6. Additional Information

Previous requests regarding motor sport events have raised several questions from

elected members prior to and during meeting debate. These are summarised

below:

Adelaide Rally & Willunga Hillclimb - complaints regarding the event

At no time during The Adelaide Rally and Willunga Hillclimb events in 2018 were

the event organisers nor Council administration made aware of any complaints with

regard to road closures, resident access to their properties, or any other formal

complaints.

In March 2018 the Friends of Willunga did provide a letter of complaint in regard to

the December 2017 event. Their concerns were addressed in the Council reports for

the 2018 Adelaide Rally and Willunga Hillclimb events.

Some of the issues raised in the past during Council meetings and from the Friends

of Willunga been addressed below.

Benefit to the City of Onkaparinga or Willunga

This event will generate economic benefit to Willunga.

A car display and lunch has been organised at the Leconfield winery providing

direct benefit to that business.

Regional Economic Modelling - the economic benefit for the City of Onkaparinga

and Willunga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

320 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

The Tourism Impact Summary for the two events (Leconfield display and Willunga

hillclimb) in our city based on a modest direct visitors- estimates a total expenditure

benefit of $243 800.

Regional Economic Modelling – how is it calculated

Tourism Impact Scenarios is a tool in REMPLAN economy for analysing the impact

of events. The direct value of an event can be estimated using data collected from

surveys or interviews. Where survey or interview data is not available it is possible

to estimate the direct value of an event by defining the number of visitors and

duration of the event and applying the Visitor Profile data. The Tourism Analysis

Module automates the process of linking visitor numbers to profile data to estimate

the direct spend of visitors. It is important to note that primary data collection may

be required to establish a reasonable estimate of the number of domestic day,

domestic overnight and international visitors to the event.

Noise from cars waiting in High Street Willunga and cars have noisy exhausts

With 60 cars competing they will be released from High Street every 30 seconds to

one minute.

These are non- competitive road cars and need to meet the mandated CAMS

decibel noise level 95 dB, measured in accordance with the attached NTC test

procedure, at a distance of 0.5 metres from the exhaust of a vehicle running at

3200-4500 rpm. Registered vehicles in South Australia are limited to 96 dB if the

vehicle was manufactured before 1983 and 90 dB if manufactured after that date.

The noise from the exhausts vibrating heritage buildings

The exhaust noise meets the CAMS requirements at the vehicle and degrades at

further distances. We do not believe that noise vibration at the race start point will

have an impact on heritage buildings. Cars need to comply with the 50km/h speed

limit in High Street and it is highly likely that these cars will be travelling well below

the speed limit.

9.10 Petition Update - Resurfacing McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale

H2

This is an update on a previously reported subject, concept or issue.

Manager: Matt Buckell, Manager Construction and Projects

Matthew Morrissey, Manager Assets and Technical Services

Report Authors: Vijay Varu, Senior Project Officer

Murray Conahan, Asset Planner (Roads)

Contact Number: 8384 0124 / 8384 0195

Attachments: 1. Petition (3 pages)

2. Location map (1 page)

3. Information sent to residents (initial reseal notification)

(1 page)

4. Reseal pamphlet (3 pages)

5. Contractors notification (1 pages)

1. Purpose

A petition (attachment 1) was received by Council at its meeting of 16 October

2018 requesting the recent resurfacing works undertaken by City of Onkaparinga

on McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale be improved. This report responds to the

petition request.

1. Resolve that the McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale microsurfacing continues to

be monitored while curing.

1. Resolve that should the expected performance of the road surface not be

achieved by the end of its maintenance period (September 2019) a further

report be presented to Council recommending an appropriate treatment to

rectify.

2. Note the asset principles provided within this report, outlining the

management of our sealed road network and that we continue with our

current practices to determine reseal treatment selection utilising the various

reseal treatment options including:

 Rejuvenation

 Spray Seal

 Microsurfacing (Cold Overlay)

 Asphalt

3. Resolve that the head petitioner be advised of Council’s decision.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

370 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

3. Background

A petition was received by Council at its meeting of 16 October 2018 where it

resolved that:

‘1. The petition be received.

2. The McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale road resurfacing works continue to be

monitored during the current treatment curing time.

3. A further report be presented to Council by February 2019 providing an update

of any required maintenance works

4. That the head petitioner be advised of Council’s decision.’

The head petitioner was advised of Council’s resolution on 26 October 2018.

The petition stated that:

”The contractor don’t have a duty of care for our street, due to the state of the

resurfacing of McCarthy Avenue”

The petitioner requested Council:

“Smooth the road to ensure safety for children and others.”

McCarthy Avenue Reseal

McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale was resealed on 6 September 2018 by council

engaged contractors using a microsurfacing treatment. Prior to the microsurfacing

the existing road had a spray seal surface.

Microsurfacing involves the combination of stone (aggregates) and bituminous

emulsions that are mixed together and laid on site by specialised equipment. It is

applied as a semi-liquid product that fills existing road surface voids and

irregularities.

Microsurfacing is a cost effective road surfacing treatment, excellent for sealing

pavement from moisture, improving the shape of the road, maintaining existing

structural integrity and extending pavement life.

The process delivers a hard wearing surface that does not require the heating of

raw materials during construction providing some environmental benefits.

The treatment requires up to six months for the new road surface material to cure

from application. Once cured, microsurfacing provides a road surface with an

aesthetic finish similar to asphalt.

A 12 month maintenance period is included within the contract for all treatments

delivered under the reseal program. Council officers inspect the road during this

maintenance period and a final inspection is completed at the end of the period.

Council officers have inspected the completed microsurfacing works on McCarthy

Avenue, Morphett Vale and are satisfied that this work has been completed to a

suitable standard.

Microsurfacing has been used on council’s road network for approximately two

decades. Approximately 203 road segments have been completed using this

treatment in the last four years, including:

• 58 segments in 2018-19

• 79 segments in 2017-18

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

371 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

• 43 segments in 2016-17

• 23 segments in 2015-16

Resident enquiry

On 10 September 2018 Ms Bini (head petitioner) contacted council regarding her

concerns with the resealing of McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale. A customer

request was created and forwarded to staff responsible for the road surfacing

works to investigate. Staff attempted to contact Ms Bini on a number of occasions

between 10 September 2018 and 26 September 2018.

On 26 September 2018 council’s Senior Project Officer met with Ms Bini on site to

discuss her concerns with the reseal works.

Ms Bini expressed concern with the road surfacing treatment chosen and her

preference that asphalt had been applied to McCarthy Avenue rather than

microsurfacing. She also referred to the asphalt treatments that had been applied

to neighbouring streets, Cunningham and Jenner Streets.

Discussion included the rationale for selecting of a microsurfacing treatment on

McCarthy Avenue as well as the curing time required for this type of road surface.

Ms Bini’s concerns remained and she asked for the petition to be presented to

Council.

Asset principles (around what we do and why)

The road network is council’s largest asset class consisting of 1355 kilometres of

sealed roads and 189 kilometres of unsealed roads, with a total asset replacement

valuation of $796,751,707.

Significant funding is required each year to maintain, rehabilitate and reconstruct

our road network. The most cost effective way to manage the road network is to

avoid reconstruction through the application of reseal treatments prior to the road

reaching a critical state of disrepair.

As roads deteriorate there are less treatment options available for selection and

those options become more expensive. As demonstrated in the reseal treatment

type and cost comparison information (contained in this report) the reseal

treatments available for selection narrows as the overall road surface condition

worsens necessitating the use of the more expensive treatments. Should we delay

reseal treatments through a lack of budget availability the deterioration rate will

increase as the seal becomes brittle leading to stone loss and cracking. Once this

occurs, the road pavement then becomes vulnerable and exposed to the ingress of

moisture leading to more expensive pavement failures requiring patching work and

in extreme cases full pavement reconstruction as demonstrated in the graph below.

The prioritisation and treatment selection for road reconstruction and reseal

projects is informed by an independent condition assessment of our entire sealed

road network which is undertaken every 3-5 years. The last assessment was

undertaken in 2014-15 and the next assessment is due to be undertaken in the

2019-20 financial year subject to budget approval. Data from this assessment is

then analysed through computer modelling (dTIMS) which considers a number of

condition elements including but not limited to: cracking, stone loss (stripping in

spray seals, delamination in microsurfacing and ravelling in Asphalt), roughness,

rutting, pavement defects (such as depressions) and grade separation between the

road pavement and kerbs.

Reseal treatment types and associated costs

Treatment types are selected with consideration given to localised road conditions.

Road surfaces that are in relatively good condition with minimal stone loss and

requiring no shape correction may be selected for a rejuvenation treatment to help

maintain overall condition.

A similar road that may be exhibiting more stone loss, cracking or significant

hardening of the bitumen binder (tar) or potholing but maintains relatively good

shape may be selected for spray seal.

A road exhibiting roughness and minor loss of shape may be selected for

microsurfacing, whilst roads requiring significant shape correction or roughness

correction may be selected for asphalt.

Dependent upon the results obtained from the condition assessment for these

condition elements, a treatment selection algorithm selects the best treatment type

for that segment of road. Selection options broadly include:

Treatment Type Associated Costs

Rejuvenation:

A liquid bitumen spray to reduce the rate of

oxidisation (breakdown) of the bitumen

beneath and to assist with stone retention. It

is not long lasting and will not provide any

level surface smoothing correction so can

only be used on roads that have good shape

and ride-ability. It is a preservation measure

only. It does not seal off cracking and may

require a crack patching treatment prior to

application. It is low cost, allows us to cover

more of the network and prevent the

progression to more expensive treatments.

Due to its short life, treatment is required

more often.

Associated information:

 short life 5 -8 years

 more regular treatment required

 bubbling

Treatment cost = $3.24 m2

Life expectancy of between 5 to

8 years

Whole of life cost: assume 6.5

year life @ $3.24 = $0.498 per

year. 30 Year cost $14.95m²

Spray seal:

Has excellent crack sealing properties and

only extreme cracking may require crack

patching prior to resealing. It has a very

sustainable whole of life cost that provides

value for money and excellent network

coverage. It does not offer any shape, level

or ride-ability correction or any added

pavement strength. There may be issues

associated with stone loss and the tracking

of bitumen during the ‘wearing in period’ and

hot spells within the first few months of

application.

Associated information:

 loose stone

 black spots

 tar tracking on tyres

 power steering marks if stationary

turning occurs.

Treatment Type Associated Costs

Microsurfacing (cold overlay):

Does not have the same crack sealing

properties as a spray seal and in some

instances crack sealing or a spray seal is

applied prior to the application of

microsurfacing. This double treatment is

referred to as a ‘Cape Seal’. Microsurfacing is

generally used where minor shape correction

is required. It can be placed in layers

generally 10mm thick and may have up to 3

layers placed, but becomes uneconomical

with the more layers required.

Associated information

 unfinished look until cured and worn

in

 cracking.

Start at $11m2 and increase to $13 m2

life expectancy of between 15 to

20 years

Whole of life cost: 17.5 years @

$12 = $0.686 per year. 30 year

cost $20.57m²

Asphalt

Has excellent shape correction and pavement

strengthening properties; however like

microsurfacing, is susceptible to cracking and

may require crack sealing or even a spray

seal prior to application. Due to the thickness

of the layer applied it can cause vehicle

scraping issues at driveway inverts and may

require other costly treatments to address

this.

Its cost limits its use due to the reduction in

network coverage with the current funding

available.

Associated information

 higher cost

 may cause driveway access issues

 susceptible to cracking.

Start at $30m2

life expectancy of between 25 to

30 years

Whole of life cost: 27.5 years @

$30 = $1.091 per year. 30 year

cost $32.73m²

Please note:

(1) Square meter rates do not include patching pre works prior to the reseal

(2) In some instances where spray seal or microsurfacing may be an appropriate treatment option; asphalt may be

selected due to unit rate savings associated with patching works and the cheaper rate that applies to larger

tonnages of asphalt resulting in an overall cost lower than that for the usually cheaper options

(3) ‘Whole of life costs’ do not include any maintenance intervention treatment costs for the life of those

treatments. Nor do they consider the disruption to residents. For example an application of Asphalt may on

average disrupt residents once every 27.5 years whereas a Rejuvenation treatment may see residents

disrupted 3-4 times over a similar period. Spray seals and microsurfacing twice.

All treatment life expectancies remain dependent upon local conditions and in

certain instances may vary from the ranges provided.

Treatments have been listed in order of our selection preference based on the

budget available and the need to (in certain cases) take action to preserve an aging

road network and prevent segments deteriorating into a more expensive treatment

type.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

375 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

With this in mind, the most expensive option (asphalt) whilst being more desirable

in terms of street appeal with a better finished surface look, smoother ride and lack

of issues associated with loose stone and tracking of bitumen, is not our first

preference treatment due to the whole of life cost and the resultant reduction in

the amount of road we can reseal annually in line with the budget available.

City wide reseal program

Totals 36.9 $5,669,713 $153,650 $8,158,241 $2,488,528 11.5

Please note these figures include the TOTAL cost to reseal including any patching

works and any spray seal and crack sealing undertaken in preparation for the reseal

whereas the figures provided earlier in this report are based upon a square meter

rate for the reseal treatment only.

If we were to replace microsurfacing with asphalt on all the segments that received

microsurfacing in 2017-18, we would have required an additional $612,046 budget

or reduce the network coverage by 3km (8% of the reseal program).

If we were to complete all road segments in Asphalt in 2017-18 there would be an

11.5km (31.2%) reduction in the program to keep within budget. Alternatively if all

the programmed roads were to be constructed in asphalt, additional funding would

be required. This would result in an additional cost of approximately $2.49m,

equivalent to a cira 2.5% rate increase (on top of the current rate) to cover this

change in the asset level of service for roads.

Number of reseal complaints

Following completion of the 2017-18 council wide reseal program, we received

approximately 69 complaints specifically relating to the road surface. The numbers

of complaints received by surface type were:

 Asphalt – 12

 Microsurfacing – 10

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

376 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 Rejuvenation – 2

 Spray Seal – 45

Some roads received no complaints whilst others received multiple complaints and

multiple complaints from the same resident(s).

Information provided to the community

Residents are informed of planned road resurfacing works prior to commencing

which includes the delivery of a flyer (attachment 4).

4. Financial Implications for McCarthy Avenue

McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale was resurfaced using a microsurfacing treatment

at a cost of approximately $27,000.

Resurfacing of McCarthy Avenue, Morphett Vale using an asphalt surface would

have cost approximately $60,000.

5. Service Alignment Results

Microsurfacing is a routine treatment option utilised as part of our road reseal

program to treat areas that are beyond cheaper rejuvenation and spray seal

treatment options but not in poor enough condition to warrant the level of defect

correcting properties of the more expensive asphalt option.

Microsurfacing is an acceptable treatment and has been adopted by Council as part

of the Corporate Asset Management Plan to arrest deterioration of our road

network in the most cost effective way and reduce Long Term Financial Plan cost

implications. Other councils within the Council Solutions road resurfacing contract

(previously named G6) also utilise microsurfacing due to its network benefits.

Varying treatments of more expensive types purely on aesthetic merit would

increase the program cost annually or reduce the network coverage annually, which

has long term network coverage and a detrimental financial effect on the

sustainability ratio for councils sealed road asset class.

6. Risk and Opportunity Management

microsurfacing to asphalt) is applied.

Not adding additional funding will have significant

immediate and long term financial cost implications

due to a reduction of road treatment length within

the network. This will result in financial risk that will

grow over time to a point of becoming unsustainable

resulting in a higher cost for rectification than that of

regular maintenance treatments being applied.

7. Additional information

The microsurfacing work recently completed on McCarthy Avenue is satisfactory,

meets council’s current technical specifications and requirements for this type of

road surface treatment.

Council officers will continue to monitor the road surface for the full extent of its

externally contracted maintenance period. If the road surface is not performing

satisfactorily at the end of this period (September 2019) a further report will be

presented to Council recommending an appropriate treatment to rectify.

9.11 Community Toilet Scheme

H2

This is an update on a previously reported subject, concept or issue.

Manager: Matthew Morrissey, Manager Assets and Technical Services

Report Author: Geoff Norris, Team Leader Community Assets

Contact Number: 8384 0666

Attachments: 1. Ellis Park, McLaren Vale Public Toilet (17 pages)

2. Notice of Motion – Community Toilet Scheme (2 pages)

3. List of council owned public toilets (1 page)

4. Public Toilet location maps (1 page)

5. Extract from House of Commons review - Provision of

Public Toilets (1 page)

1. Purpose

The former Council requested a report to Council in February 2019 that investigates

a community toilet scheme.

2. Recommendations

That Council

1. Note the investigation into the Community toilet scheme.

2. Note that the council area is considered to be well serviced with public toilet

amenities including council owned and privately accessible facilities.

3. Confirm that no further work is undertaken on this proposal at this point in

time and no further consultation is required via Your Say.

4. That any future opportunities for serving an area with public toilet facilities

will be considered on a case by case basis.

3. Background

At its meeting of 21 August 2018 Council received a Petition response – regarding

the provision of a public toilet in Ellis Park, McLaren Vale. This report related to the

use of Ellis Park during the Tour Down Under event and the influx of event

attendees and the perceived lack of public toilet facilities in the local area

(attachment 1). Council resolved that:

‘1. That Council notes the township of McLaren Vale is considered to be well

serviced with public toilet facilities and that there are no current plans to further

expand these facilities.

2. That Council notes that staff will carefully assess each future request to hold

significant community events at Ellis Park to ensure that adequate portable toilets

are provided.

3. That Council notes that there are no plans to provide a drinking fountain within

Ellis Park.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

390 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

4. That the head petitioner be notified of Council’s decisions.’

Subsequently on 11 September 2018 Council received a Notice of Motion

(attachment 2) that requested:

‘1. That a report comes back to the new Council in February 2019 that investigates

a community toilet scheme including how it would work, what it would cost, where

it would best be targeted and an initial response from the community through “Your

Say” and Main Street Business Associations that would most benefit from the

proposal.

2. That the Ellis Park Head Petitioner be informed of Council’s decision.’

The Ellis Park Head Petitioner was notified of Council’s 11 September 2018

Decision.

In accordance with the notice of motion, investigations have been undertaken as

follows:

Community Toilet Scheme investigation:

The proposed community toilet scheme presented via the Notice of Motion required

investigations into the United Kingdom based Enfield Council community toilet

scheme. This scheme was adopted in 2009 and is described as “a borough-wide

scheme to provide clean, safe and accessible public toilets in more convenient

locations for residents and visitors.

Under the scheme, Members of the scheme let members of the public use their

toilet facilities free of charge during normal opening hours. Several of the premises

offer wheelchair access and baby changing facilities.”

The objective of the scheme was to provide facilities where there was high demand

and insufficient public facilities available.

How the scheme works:

Since the schemes inception, research has identified that 24 businesses had joined

the scheme and the Council was actively marketing to increase its business

participation. The participants must allow members of the public to use their toilet

facilities without the need to purchase anything. The Council pays an annual fee of

£500-£800, to assist the premises owner with keeping it clean and stocked with

sanitising paper, hand washing and drying materials. The amount paid depends on

the facilities provided. For example, if they have one or two toilets, facilities for

disabled people or facilities for baby changing.

Benefits to scheme participants include:

 An increase in trade, as the public using the facilities either stay on in the

premises, or come back at a later date, due to having come into the premises.

 Business will have visible advertising on the streets, as they will have signs

placed on lamp posts on the streets nearby, and council provide a window

sticker.

 Business are placed on the council’s website under the list of business, who are

members of the Community Toilet Scheme.

Where it would best be targeted:

A need was identified by Enfield Council due to an ongoing increase in population

and therefore demand vs the ability to supply facilities to their community. In order

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

391 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

to qualify the supply and demand in the context of the City of Onkaparinga, a

review was undertaken of population over area for the Enfield Council and the City

of Onkaparinga respectively. The results are as follows:

Population Area

Enfield Council 332,700 82.2Km2

City of Onkaparinga 170,404 518km2

*Note Enfield Council statistics are from 2011 and CoO are ABS 2017.

Context in regard to City of Onkaparinga:

The analysis shows that Enfield Council is a highly densified region, this equates by

way of comparison, to a population density of 40.4 people per hectare compared to

City of Onkaparinga population density of 3.2 people per hectare.

On this basis the scheme has more relevance to high population locations or

locations that generate high volumes of pedestrian activities such as shopping

centres and malls.

The UK scheme participants in the Enfield Council generally centre on medium to

high density populations with majority of dwellings being either semi-detached,

terrace or residential flat buildings. Residential areas of predominantly detached

dwelling built form do not appear to have the schemes located in those geographic

areas.

Your Say engagement:

Given the infancy of considering the scheme and clear implementation of anything

relatable within Australia even in locations such as Sydney, its low demand analysis

and its potential cost to Council, it was deemed premature to engage with the

public via the “your say” website until Council had sufficient information to inform

its direction. Should Council elect to proceed with community engagement the

appropriate planning and delivery would be undertaken at that time.

4. Financial Implications

Public toilet facility construction costs range from $80,000 for a single cubicle, up to

$180,000 for a multi cubicle facility.

Maintenance and cleaning cost approximately $515,000 per annum.

 $187,949 - Annual maintenance as a result of vandalism, breakdowns and

repairs

 $328,000 - Annual cleaning and consumables

Below are examples of annual costs to clean various facility types:

 Small toilet block eg. Brixton St - 2 female pans, 1 male pan and urinal

$3602 plus 1 hygiene bin $36 = $3638.00 + GST per annum

 Medium toilet block eg, Market Square - 3 female pans, 1 male pan and

urinal, 1 disabled pan $6384 plus 3 hygiene bin $108 = $6492.00 + GST per

annum

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

392 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

 Large toilet block eg. Witton Centre - 4 female pans, 2 male pans and urinal,

1 disabled pan $9480 plus 5 hygiene bin $180 = $9660.00 + GST per annum.

Council currently does not pay proprietors to keep these facilities available for

general public or to be open for longer periods than business hours.

Based on the United Kingdom proposal, such schemes entered into could cost

council $700 to $1820 per annum per private arrangement subject to the level of

the facility and negotiations with the shop/business owners.

Additional council administration costs may also be required to manage the scheme,

which was highlighted in a review of the public toilet scheme operating in the

United Kingdom to assess and monitor compliance of sites. Refer attachment 5.

5. Service Alignment Results

Currently public toilets are provided based on the Open Space Strategic

Management Plan provisions where Public toilets are provided on Regional and

District family reserves.

Generally public toilets have also been provided in areas where the community

gathers in reasonably large numbers and is a focal point for the community eg

beaches or within public buildings.

Currently toilet facilities are available within other premises eg. service stations,

shopping complexes, hotels, etc. These toilet facilities are available during

operating times of the business. The availability of these for general public use has

not been individually assessed other than those approached for specific locations

where they have generally been available to the general public during opening

hours, eg McLaren Vale, Morphett vale.

Council currently provides 70 dedicated public toilet facilities across the council

area, as well as other facilities identified below, (refer attachment 3):

 Community Centres 14

 Community Hall 1

 Library 6

 Other 1

 Public Toilet Block 70

Additional toilets are available via Non City of Onkaparinga owned facilities, as

follows, (refer attachment 4):

 Food Outlet 8

 Public Toilet Block 2

 Service Station 27

 Shopping Centre 9

 Train Station 1

Therefore the total Public toilets available to the community in the City of

Onkaparinga is 136 locations. Most council owned public toilets are available 24/7

with a few with restricted timing.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

393 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

Attachment 4 identifies the current location of council public toilet facilities and

potential current commercial premises that have toilets available for the public to

use. These are generally the shopping complexes and service stations within the

council area.

Whilst council does not currently have a Level of Service policy position on the

quantum of toilet facilities to supply the community or a maximum distance to such

a convenience. The mapping identified that there are very few locations that are

located more than 1.5Km from a facility in the populated suburban areas and

townships of the City of Onkaparinga. The suburbs identified with less provision

include: Lonsdale, Aberfoyle Park, Happy Valley, Sellicks Beach and Hackham.

Attachment 3 identifies proposed facilities (in red) in accordance with the Open

Space Strategic Management Plan which will close this provision gap in the coming

years, as projects are prioritised and delivered.

6. Risk and Opportunity Management

Risk

Identify Mitigation

Additional costs Currently in the facilities within other potential

premises are available to the public at no cost to

council. In some cases in smaller shopping

complexes this may be restricted to shoppers.

Increased liabilities Should council pay an additional amount to owners

of these facilities to enable access to their public

toilet facilities could increase risk of damage and

liabilities to the shop owner. The arrangement within

the United Kingdom in many cases includes a clause

that the Council will not be responsible for damage

or injury to the public using the facilities.

Standard of facility not

maintained or cleaned

to the required

standards.

Council could regularly inspect toilets that are used

as part of any such scheme, however will be at an

extra cost to council.

Providing Council

subsidised facilities

don’t cater for 24/7

needs, restricting to

only business hours.

The Community Toilet Scheme operating in the

United Kingdom has extend in some cases to hotels

to provide extended hours of access to public toilets.

This however has not always seem suitable for all

age groups to use.

Opportunity

Identify Maximising the opportunity

Off set future renewal As toilets reach end of life the potential to enter into

the schemes could be investigated on a case by

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

394 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

costs case. We have received 6 requests for toilet in the

last 12 months of which 3 relate to local parks which

is above our service levels. The other related to

Aldinga near Aldi which is serviced by the Sports

Ground public toilet, 1 for Woodcroft which will be

addressed by new toilet facilities on a the reserve on

Pimpala Road and 1 for a shopping complex on

South Road Morphett vale.

7. Additional information

The mapping of the public toilets provided in Attachment 3 and 4 suggests that the

council area is reasonably well serviced by both council and commercial toilet

facilities. It is therefore recommended that we do not proceed with a community

toilet scheme at this time.

As identified in the Notice of Motion put forward, the Community Toilet Scheme has

been introduced primarily throughout councils in the United Kingdom. Research via

the websites has identified some of the councils originally entered into the scheme

to increase the number of facilities for the dense populations and high level of

tourists as well as a way to reduce costs following budget cuts.

Research has also identified that many councils have generally identified the

implementation of the Community Toilet Scheme as a success.

Some reviews into the Community Toilet Scheme raised concerns that the

substitution of private toilet facilities for public toilet facilities was not appropriate

where

 there was potential for high volume of users within relatively short periods of

time

 some types of facilities that were available were not suitable for all users e.g.

use of hotel toilets facilities at night not appropriate for small children

The fees the United Kingdom councils offer range from 500 pounds pa up to 1300

pounds per annum, depending on the level of facilities and opening hours.

Washington DC Councils also considered the scheme operating in the United

Kingdom and determined that the scheme would be of value to expand access to

facilities where there is very high pedestrian traffic through the day. The review

identified that the council would continue to provide toilets facilities for 24 hour

use.

9.12 Aldinga Southern School and Structure Plan Update

This is a new proposal, concept or issue.

Manager: Matt Buckell, Manager Construction and Projects

Report Author: Susan Manchip, Project Leader

Contact Number: 8384 0521

Attachments: 1. Aldinga Framework Plan (council) (11 pages)

2. Outcomes of Elected Member workshop (5 February

2019) (4 pages)

3. Rail and corridor alignment (Renewal SA) (1 page)

4. Engagement outcomes evaluation snapshot: New Aldinga

School (Department of Education) (1 page)

5. Draft Aldinga Sports Park concept plan (1 page)

1. Purpose

The purpose of this report is to provide Council with an update on two significant

state government initiatives in Aldinga namely the structure plan process to rezone

deferred urban land holdings and the potential southern birth-to-year 12 school

development.

The report also seeks approval of the Aldinga Framework Plan which was developed

to input into these initiatives.

2. Recommendations

That Council:

1. Note the update on Renewal SA’s structure plan project and Department of

Education’s potential southern school project and opportunities for council

input into both initiatives.

2. Approve the Aldinga Framework Plan as an input into the structure plan and

southern school projects and note that items requiring further testing will be

brought back to Council for direction.

3. Note the Aldinga Framework Plan will be made available to the community

via council’s website to facilitate community input into the state government

led engagement processes for the structure plan and southern school

projects.

4. Note that council staff have commenced preliminary discussions with the

Department of Education about opportunities for shared use facilities and

that additional information will be presented to Council for direction at a

later date.

3. Background

Two significant state government initiatives are currently underway in Aldinga

namely the structure plan (SP) process to rezone deferred urban land holdings and

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

418 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

the potential southern (birth-to year 12) school (SS) development (see figure 1

below).

Figure 1: Renewal SA led structure plan area (yellow) (potential southern

school location not yet confirmed)

Council’s input into both the SP and SS processes is critical to ensure these

initiatives align with Council and community views on the future of Aldinga.

Aldinga Framework Plan (Council)

In order to proactively lead and influence these state government initiatives, the

Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP) (attachment 1) has been prepared to inform the SP

and SS projects. The AFP consolidates mostly known information from council

endorsed strategies and plans. It also includes some items that require further

investigation and direction. An Elected Member Session was held on 5 February

2019 to brief Council on the AFP and seek input ahead of presenting this report to

Council. Elected member feedback as part of this session is provided as attachment

2. Subsequent changes to the AFP based on this feedback are highlighted in the

updated AFP (attachment 1).

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

Structure Plan (Renewal SA)

Renewal SA has commenced investigations to prepare a structure plan to inform

potential rezoning of an approximately 94 hectare site at Aldinga to accommodate a

range of residential and other uses, including likely development of a new birth to

year 12 school on the site.

Southern School (Department of Education)

Following investigations involving three potential sites, the Department of Education

(DE) is considering a site in close proximity to the Aldinga Sports Park on Renewal

SA land. This location will be announced along with another new school in northern

Adelaide once arrangements for the land for these schools has been finalised.

The proposed new SS will be delivered via a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model

which packages up all capital, design, construction and maintenance costs for a 30

year period. This is a commercial model whereby DE will enter into a long term

contract with a private developer/operator. Staff continue to seek opportunities to

contribute to this process to ensure identified community needs and expectations

are considered.

With regard to the SS, there may be opportunities for council to enter into a shared

use arrangement to capitalise on the facilities developed as part of the school and

the location of the Sports Park within close proximity. This will ensure the (sport

and recreation) facilities provided are mutually beneficial and avoid unnecessary

duplication and associated costs. A high level analysis of facility options is underway

and additional information will be presented to Council once complete.

This report provides a summary of opportunities for Council and community to

input into these state government initiatives.

4. Financial Implications

There may be opportunities to share facilities with the school which will reduce the

costs for both state government and council. Analysis of the financial implications is

currently being prepared and will be presented at a later date.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

the sporting and recreation needs for the district.

6. Additional information

Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP) (attachment 1)

Council staff have prepared a high level framework for Aldinga to provide input into

the SP, SS and future projects. The plan seeks to ensure council proactively leads

and influences these projects by presenting an integrated approach to planning for

Aldinga.

The Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP) consolidates known information about the

Aldinga region based on relevant council strategic plans, asset management plans

and related reports, with a focus on the Renewal SA land and potential school site.

It also reflects known and emerging community views, such as desire to retain

open space on the Port Road triangle and options for the Main South Road future

alignment.

The AFP identifies issues and opportunities in the broader Aldinga region and

comprises maps under the following themes:

• Development and Planning

• Transport and Movement

• Landscape, Open Space and Water

• Design and character layer for the new school development.

There is opportunity for the AFP to evolve over time in response to further

investigations, council and community input.

AFP opportunities requiring further investigation

The AFP consolidates mostly known information and opportunities that are broadly

interpreted as Council positions. It does however also present a small number of

opportunities or options that provide new and untested direction that require

further discussion/investigation.

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

421 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

The table below shows how risks regarding these opportunities are proposed to be

managed through this process.

(refer attachment 2)

Opportunity How it will be managed

All opportunities identified

below

Identified on front cover of AFP as an

opportunity that is subject to further testing,

collaboration and discussion with Council and

relevant state government representatives, and

not currently an endorsed Council position.

Scope for rezoning primary

production land to

residential land use

(refer Planning and

Development map)

This opportunity has been identified in a

Strategic Directions Report endorsed by Council

in 2013.

This area lies outside the scope of the Renewal

SA Structure Plan but there may be opportunity

to include it in the investigation stage of this

project.

Potential to use Renewal SA

triangular piece of land

(between Port and

Quinliven Roads) to relocate

sport and recreation

facilities as a land swap

arrangement

(refer Planning and

Development map)

Recommendation that Council provide in

principle endorsement for this opportunity to be

explored during the SP/SS process subject to

the following:

 equivalent or better facilities are provided

 it is cost effective

 design and character considers this triangle

as an open space gateway to Port Willunga.

Should further investigations suggest this idea is

of merit, further information will be presented to

Council for direction.

Station location options

(four station options

proposed by council are

identified on the Transport

map)

We do not have sufficient information at this

stage to determine Council’s preferred train

station location or a preferred intersection

scenario.

As the structure plan investigations progress

Council will have an opportunity to respond to

these opportunities through this process.

Should discussion progress or there be an

opportunity to present a clearer position, further

information will be presented to Council to arrive

at endorsed position.

A preliminary draft AFP was released to the DE and Renewal SA with the disclaimer

that the plans were not Council endorsed and confidential.

An Elected Member workshop on the Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP) was held on

the 5 February 2019 and a summary of the outcomes of this workshop are attached

(attachment 3).

Following this report to Council, subject to Council approval an updated plan will be

issued to relevant state agencies. We also propose to provide the document on

Council’s website to facilitate community input into the state government led SP

and SS projects.

Aldinga Structure Plan (Renewal SA led)

The Urban Renewal Authority owns 94 hectares of land within the City of

Onkaparinga Deferred Urban Zone at Aldinga (refer Fig. 1 above). Renewal SA has

initiated a structure planning process to support a rezoning of this land for

residential and other uses. The SP is intended to be high level and in addition to

land for development, it will identify road and pedestrian movement networks,

indicative open space locations, buffers and stormwater.

The non-negotiables include the following:

 rail alignment and corridor width (set by Department of Planning Transport and

Infrastructure - refer attachment 4)

 potential site for birth to year 12 school (if confirmed by the DE).

Key dates and opportunities for community/council input into the Renewal SA

process are summarised in the table below.

Southern B-12 School

Opportunities to input into the process

The state government has advised that the procurement process and timing of the

SS is not public and updates will be provided to Council once information is

released.

State government community engagement to date has been limited to a pop-up

stall in Aldinga District Centre in October 2018. The DE has provided council with a

summary of the engagement outcomes (see attachment 5). The pop-up was

attended by 130+ people and five priority areas were identified, namely: support

for student wellbeing, facilities for students with disadvantage, assist kids to be

creative and innovative learners, lots of curriculum opportunities and a caring and

respectful school community.

DE will provide council with an update on their communication strategy and key

messages early in 2019.

Opportunities for shared use facilities

The potential benefits of a facility shared use agreement with SS are numerous and

include:

• providing spaces of a sufficient size to create a sporting and community hub

using both council and school land

• the larger scale can offer a more diverse range of activities and programs

• use in school and after hours results in more usage and social interaction and a

greater sense of community and safety

• increased sense of community ownership of facilities

• less duplication and maximised usage of community facilities leading to

increased viability of facilities

• more efficient use of land and resources

• cost effective.

A draft Aldinga Sports Park Concept Plan (attachment 6) was prepared in 2013 as a

recommendation of an Aldinga Social Impact Assessment. The concept plan

commenced with a needs assessment that informed the development of the draft

Concept Plan. The assessment considered demographics, population projections,

sports participation, trends a facility provision audit, community feedback and

broader supply in the Aldinga region.

It is expected that a regional school would construct a number of facilities including

soccer/hockey pitches, ovals, tennis and indoor courts as part of the school

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

424 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

complex. A potential shared use arrangement would avoid unnecessary duplication

of facilities in the region.

A high level cost analysis of the following options is currently being undertaken:

1. Council deliver the facilities it requires

2. Council lease available new facilities from the school and only build the

shortfall.

In the first option, council would require the capital upfront (likely through

borrowings) and would have to cover operation, asset renewal and maintenance

costs over the life of the asset. In a shared use option, rather than having to outlay

the capital upfront, council would pay an annual lease fee over a negotiated period

to the DE (eg over the 30 year PPP period).

Council would need to determine whether to build all required sports facilities or to

lease available facilities from the school.

Council staff are in early discussions with the DE about opportunities for shared use

of facilities. Should discussion be favourable additional information including

preliminary financial analysis will be presented to Council for consideration and

direction.

Next steps

The next steps in the SP and SS processes include the following:

• issue an updated Council approved AFP to State Government to inform their

project planning

• release the AFP to the public via council’s website

• continue to participate in the SP and SS processes and advocate for community

and council views

• council staff continue to explore opportunities for shared use facilities with the

DE and should discussions be favourable present additional information to

Council regarding shared use facilities for consideration and direction

• continue to keep Elected Members informed of project progress.

DRAFT ALDINGA

FRAMEWORK

PLAN

Prepared by the City of Onkaparinga

Version 3. February 2019

Attachment 1

Draft Aldinga Framework Plan

Purpose of the Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP)

The Aldinga Framework Plan (AFP) consolidates known information

about the Aldinga region (based on relevant Council Strategy,

asset management plans and/or related reports), with a focus on

Deferred Urban land subject to Renewal SA’s current Structure Plan

project for Aldinga.

The plan also identifies key issues and opportunities for these sites

and the surrounding area. Several of these items are currently

untested and require further investigation. They do not represent

an endorsed Council position.

The purpose of the AFP is to provide a strong foundation for

an integrated and coordinated planning approach for Aldinga,

involving key land owners and authorities including the City of

Onkaparinga, and state government agencies including Renewal

SA, Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI),

Department of Education (DE) and the Department of Environment

and Water (DEW).

The AFP also aims to capture known opportunities and issues

raised by the Aldinga Community, in relation to future planning for

the area.

The AFP is presented under the following four themes:

• Planning and Development

• Movement and Transport

• Landscape, Open Space and Water

• Tourism and Economy

It is anticipated that the Aldinga Framework Plan will develop and

evolve over time, and will both inform and respond to the Renewal

SA Aldinga Structure Plan (commencing December 2018, due for

completion June 2019) and technical investigations undertaken

by Department of Education in relation to the proposed southern

school site.

Sensitive items not currently endorsed by

Council requiring further investigation

The following opportunities and issues have been identified for

further investigation, due to their significant impact on planning

within the region, and/or their sensitive nature. These have been

highlighted in the plans for ease of identification and require

further consideration by Council (refer bold orange items).

• Scope for rezoning primary production land to residential land

use (Planning and Development)

• Subject to final location of school site, potential to use Renewal

SA’s triangular piece of land to relocate community facilities

from the Aldinga Sports Park (bowls, croquet, horse clubs) as a

land swap arrangement (Planning and Development)

• Train station location options (Movement and Transport)

• Aldinga Beach Road/ Aldinga Road/ Main South Road

Port Willunga

(State Heritage

Listed Coastline)

The interface with rural landscape character, and views to

the Willunga Escarpment and Willunga Creek are unique

values of the Deferred Urban site(s). The following urban

design principles are suggested to ensure that future

residential development does not detract from this

unique sense of place. The development of Urban Design

Guidelines to guide the design and character of built

form, streets and open space within the subject land is

strongly recommended by Council & Community.

Designing for Site & Context

Landscape buffers to Main South Road and Port Road. Ideally

incorporated into larger ‘rural living’ private lots, with open

style (eg. post/rail) fencing to road frontages.

Local street layout designed providing clear sightlines to

Willunga Escarpment and open space within the development.

Housing mix and diversity is important for meeting the needs

of community at different life stages. A broad mix of dwelling

typologies will also contribute to the vibrancy & visual interest

of the development as a whole.

Open space (integrating stormwater management) provided

centrally within the development, to provide ease of access

to this amenity, and highly walkable connections to Aldinga

Village, Aldinga Sports Park and the future train station.

Housing density and lot size is a key concern for the

community. Any higher density development should be located

internally in the development to enable direct access to open

space, and reduce visual impact of this development typology.

Larger lots should be used to transition to rural surroundings.

1. Highly valued and sensitive land from a Community

perspective. Pending the design and interrelationships

between the potential school sports facilities and Aldinga

Sports Park. eg. Equestrian and/or other character

appropriate sports and recreation facilities could be

relocated here, as a land swap arrangement.

2. Rail corridor results in segmentation of the ‘triangle’,

reducing feasibility for housing within the eastern portion.

Opportunity for open space corridor connection from

Quinliven Road/ Renewal SA Land.

3. Potential extension of Urban Employment zone to western

edge of rail corridor to provide greater regional supply of this

land use. Stormwater detention in this area is also required.

4. Impact of future road connection options and high voltage

power easement (50m width) on residential land division.

This transport corridor will further divide the Renewal SA

land. Opportunities for strong pedestrian/cycle links within

this corridor/ easement.

5. Rail corridor isolates the Deferred Urban land

6. Potential for higher density residential around future

train station location. Pending train station location, there

is opportunity to leverage the open space amenity, and

‘walkable’ proximity to Aldinga Village shops. Long term

timeframe for rail may reduce viability of this opportunity,

given likely development of this land in shorter term.

7. Scope for re-zoning from Primary Production to Residential

to meet future housing demand and ‘complete’ town edge

to Main South Road. Interface with Main South Road to be

considered to preserve ‘rural’ character.

8. Potential preservation of railway corridor to Sellicks beach (to

be confirmed by DPTI) would severely impact land use and

access within this currently amalgamated parcel.

9. Future development within the Deferred Urban Zone should

support Aldinga District Centre and Aldinga Township, rather

than competing with these existing centres. A small retail

offering within the future train station precinct may be

appropriate to support the ‘walkability’ of the development.

Issues and Opportunities

Preserving the Character of

Townships and Gateways

Aldinga Township and Port Willunga are

special places for locals and visitors alike.

The preservation of the character of these

townships, including the arrival experience

and views to/from these destinations, is highly

important. Planning considerations for these

areas include:

Aldinga

Township

a

b

Maintaining a rural approach/arrival

The future rail corridor may negatively impact or

prevent the Port Road arrival to Port Willunga. As

such, maintaining a landscape/rural character within

the triangular Deferred Urban land will be important

to the sense of arrival and distinction from ‘suburbia’.

Responsive development form and character

The character of the townships is reinforced by

numerous state and local heritage buildings.

The pattern and character of any development

adjacent and/or visible from these areas should be

complementary to this existing character.

Main South Road Upgrade & Aldinga

Beach Road/ Aldinga Road Connections

Railway Corridor Implications for Movement

Station Location Considerations

Several road realignment scenarios exist to achieve a singular

intersection with Main South Road. Alternatively, the existing

intersections (Aldinga Rd & Aldinga Beach Rd) may be converted

to roundabouts (as per recommendations in Main South Rd

Management Plan, March 2015). It is assumed that the current

HV power line will remain (with a 26m wide easement), due to the

high costs of under-grounding this infrastructure.

Topography suggests that in order to achieve appropriate track

grades, the corridor will need to cut into existing land-form, resulting

in the following likely outcomes.

Realignment of Aldinga Beach Road and Aldinga Rd with

singular connection to Main South Rd. Results in an efficient

road network , however creates inefficiencies for the use and

accessibility of Renewal SA land.

Realignment of Aldinga Road only. Relies on private land

acquisition, but optimises both the road network, and flexibility

of Renewal SA land use.

Retention of 2 intersections, converted to roundabouts. Creates

inefficiencies in road network/flow, however avoids impacting

on land use, and provides central connection to Renewal SA

Land from Main South Road.

Other Ideas for Main South Road

There is community desire to realign Main South Road (as part

of the future road duplication project) in order to reconnect

St.Ann’s Church, cemetery & war memorial with the Township.

Main South Road Action Group have suggested realigning Aldinga

Beach Road to meet Aldinga Road, and flyover or underpass

treatments to intersections at Aldinga Road and Port Road.

-Willunga Creek environs and east-west access along this open space

corridor may be affected. Likely requirement for a bridge over the

Willunga Creek valley (TBC)

-Possibility of Port Road being terminated either side of the corridor

with loss of heritage listed trees within the corridor. Potential for rail

corridor to go under Port Road.

-Quinliven Road will need to bridge the rail corridor. Implications for

access to the Renewal SA land and potential school, noting that most

of the school catchment would likely be travelling from the west, and

would need to turn right shortly after this bridge crossing.

-East-west crossing of the corridor within Renewal SA land is

currently not allowed for. This has significant access implications for

residents on both sides of the corridor.

-Location of train station (TBC) inc. bus interchange and ‘Park &

Ride’ facility will have significant bearing on vehicle and pedestrian

movements along How Rd and Quinliven Rd.

-Implications for connections and land use if preserved rail corridor is

extended to Sellicks Beach as ‘future proofing’ by DPTI

-Greatest distance from Aldinga Centre, but

would enable improved access to Renewal SA

land, and avoid grade separation of Quinliven

Rd. Renewal SA land could support a Park &

Ride facility, however this would impact on

landscape buffer(s) and the area’s character.

-Potential acoustic issues for Galilee school, and

spatial issues for supporting transport facilities.

eg. bus interchange.

-This location provides optimal accessibility

from both Aldinga Centre, Port Willunga and

Aldinga Township. Some impact on east/west

connections for Renewal SA land

-Closest to Aldinga Centre, however rail

corridor limits access to Renewal SA land.

1. Main South Road duplication Stage 1 from Seaford to Aldinga

(2019). Access to Renewal SA land (west) and to existing

properties (inc. St Anne’s Church) east of this corridor and.

Impact of road corridor widening on Aldinga Township (inc.

heritage listed church and cemetery) to be confirmed by DPTI.

2. Main South Road duplication Stage 2 from Aldinga to Sellicks

Beach (construction date to be confirmed by DPTI).

3. Realignment of Aldinga Beach Road and Aldinga Road

to achieve singular intersection vs. retention of two

intersections. See note on plan.

4. Future rail corridor. Refer note on plan. Station location still

to be confirmed, including bus interchange and Park and

Ride facility. Opportunity for integrated Shared Path utilising

the rail corridor.

5. Suggested rail corridor crossing point to mid-section of

Renewal SA Land linking to existing linear open space, and

enabling logical connection east to Aldinga Road.

6. Road access on eastern side of rail corridor will be crucial for

access to Renewal SA land, and the confirmed school site.

7. Indicative location of Park and Ride facility with 600-1000 car

capacity (vs. Seaford capacity 550 vehicles). 1000 car capacity

would require minimum 3ha based on single grade car park.

Opportunity to reduce footprint by providing 2 levels. Facility

could be set into the land-form to reduce visual impact,

assuming rail corridor cutting.

8. Vehicle and pedestrian network to southern edge of Aldinga

Sports Park is desirable to create an ‘active’ interface between

this open space and adjoining residential development

frontage.

9. Highly desirable pedestrian connection from Renewal SA land

to Aldinga Township, to support this centre.

10. Current car-parking limitations within Aldinga Township &

issues with vehicle circulation along the main street.

11. Requirement to upgrade How Road to ‘Collector’ to cater for

increased vehicle movements. Likely requirement to upgrade

intersection at Quinliven Road/How Road.

12. Stronger east/west pedestrian and cycle links between the

potential new school, Renewal SA land, and Aldinga Centre

and Township to be considered in movement network design.

Potential role for Dolphin Blvd as pedestrian/cycle connection

to Aldinga Centre. Traffic calming measures to be considered

to discourage use of this route as a short-cut to Aldinga Centre.

13. Aldinga to Willunga shared path link and safe crossing at Main

South Road to be considered in network planning.

14. Opportunity for a cycle trail along Main South Road corridor

1. Opportunity for regional level linear park along

Willunga Creek incorporating Shared Use Trail

(Aldinga-Willunga). This open space & waterway also

plays an important role as a habitat corridor.

2. Opportunity to utilise rail corridor as linear park

(until railway constructed). Planning for the railway

should consider retention of narrower linear park

function (and trees) along this corridor, for recreation,

movement, stormwater management, habitat and as a

buffer to residential land use.

3. Potential for east-west landscape link, integrated with

shared path, to connect existing linear park at How

Road to Aldinga Sports Park and Aldinga Village.

4. Opportunity to integrate stormwater run-off from

sports fields within open space link/corridor and

landscape buffer

5. Opportunity for Neighbourhood level ‘Family’ park

within Renewal SA land.

6. Landscape buffer to Main South Rd to provide a

visual buffer between development and Primary

Production land, and acoustic separation for any new

development from this main road.

7. Potential for triangle land to be retained as a

landscape buffer, to preserve rural character/gateway

and provide open space link to Willunga Creek.

8. Future site level of rail corridor (assumed to be below

current finished site levels) creates issue for water

management for eastern portion of Renewal SA site.

Water movement between Renewal SA site and How

Rd wetland/ detention ponds is critical.

9. Stormwater basin required to manage run-off from

the Renewal SA land. Onward flow to existing How

Rd wetlands to equate to pre-development flows

only. Ideally, stormwater to be managed locally within

development, integrating WSUD into street design.

Issues and Opportunities

10. Potential landscape swale corridor and shared path

link (extension of existing infrastructure).

11. Opportunity for strong landscape link (and shared

path) to deferred urban lands and Hart Road Wetland.

12. Opportunity to reinforce the landscape value

and amenity leading to Hart Road Wetlands, with

associated trail upgrade.

13. Alternative stormwater management approach

utilising future excavated railway corridor to enable

northward stormwater drainage from Renewal SA

land, enabling treatment of water in open space

adjacent Willunga Creek. Needs further testing

regarding risks and compatibility with railway

infrastructure requirements.

14. Galilee School stormwater pond is currently oversized.

The school is looking to direct overflow to existing

stormwater pipes in How Road, to enable more

efficient use of land for additional school buildings.

15. Natural site levels for the northern section of the

Renewal SA site drains north, while the southern

portion drains to the south. Dependant on location,

opportunity exists for the school to connect into the

Quinliven Road stormwater system if pre-development

flows can be demonstrated.

16. Preservation of key sightlines to the Willunga

escarpment, through built form setback/scale

considerations and landscape buffer treatment.

17. Future regional skate park location to be considered,

based on best fit with adjacent supporting facilities.

• Consideration of key popular visitor access routes

and connections to Aldinga Township, and coastal

locations including Port Willunga, Snapper Point and

the vehicular beach access ramps at Aldinga Beach

and Silver Sands. Legibility, character and amenity of

these routes is important, to reinforce the sense of

local identity and place.

• Consideration of future legibility, character and

amenity of routes to Port Willunga, should access

along Port Road (via the Memorial Aleppo Pines)

be restricted by the railway corridor. In particular,

consider retention of rural/landscape character along

How Road. Refer Planning and Development Issues

and Opportunities page for further commentary.

• Future development within the Deferred Urban Zone

should support Aldinga District Centre and Aldinga

Township, rather than including further retail/

commercial land use that may act to weaken these

existing centres.

• The local economy in Aldinga currently has a strong

focus on the construction industry, as detailed in the

chart below. Future land use planning to support

this industry sector should be considered, whilst

also enabling diversification of local employment

opportunities.

• Industrial/Urban Employment zones in Willunga

and McLaren Vale are, or are almost at capacity.

Expansion of the Urban Employment Zone in Aldinga

Beach will provide greater regional capacity. Refer

Planning and Development Issues and Opportunities

page for further commentary.

• Stormwater management requirements in the

southwest corner of Renewal SA’s land need to be

considered in conjunction with the expansion of the

Urban Employment Zone.

A Brief History of European Settlement in Aldinga

Design & Character

New School Development

Version 3. February 2019

Draft Aldinga Framework Plan

Page 11 of 11

The following local/contextual design

considerations have been prepared by City of

Onkaparinga to inform the design and character

of the potential new school on Renewal SA land,

as it sits within the unique context of Aldinga

Township, and the landscape of the Willunga

Basin.

Identity and Context

1. Preservation of views to Willunga Escarpment, from Quinliven

Road and Port Road.

2. Provide a welcoming character to the public through the built

form and landscape interface.

3. At a high spatial level, consider the siting of the main building

hub/cluster (and associated car parking) in relation to the

site context. Specifically, consider links between the school

and Aldinga Sports Park, and the relationship between the

school’s built form and the historic Aldinga township.

4. Opportunity for the design to reinforce the cultural heritage

and identity of Aldinga, with respect to both Aboriginal and

European history and present day culture.

Site Planning

5. Campus design (building siting/ orientation) to celebrate and

frame views to Willunga Escarpment

6. Positive/active built form interface with adjoining public

realm (streets and/or recreation ground) via glazing and

elevation design.

7. Opportunity for a ‘linear park’ to provide a high amenity

pedestrian link between the school, the Aldinga Sports Park

and Historic Township, facilitating community connectivity

between these sites (dependent on school location).

8. Preference for the design of vehicle access and car parking to

integrate with Structure Plan access roads.

School Grounds and Landscape

9. Reflect site/regional context through the school grounds,

taking cues from coastal and/or agricultural landscapes.

10. Facilitate learning and appreciation for the unique

environmental systems in the Aldinga Region, through the

design of the school’s external spaces. Opportunities for

WSUD, wetland/water systems and productive landscapes,

relating to the Willunga Creek, Aldinga Scrub, Washpool,

Aldinga Coast & primary production lands of the Willunga

Basin.

11. Provide strong indoor/outdoor links between learning

areas and landscapes/outdoor learning areas.

12. Ensure legibility/ease of access to building facilities which

may be shared with the community, including siting of

these facilities towards the public frontage of the school

where possible.

13. Locate sports facilities which may be shared by the

community and Aldinga Sports Park, to enable future

flexibility.

Built Form & Materiality

14. Built form scale and massing to be sensitive to the local

context, ensuring views to the Willunga Escarpment are

preserved and (generally) low buildings within the flat

landscape, whilst recognising the need to architecturally

articulate key entrance/arrival points.

15. Materiality is to respond to local built form and the coastal

and rural character of the region.

16. Colour palette to reflect local context (coast and

hills). Avoid bright primary colours which may jar with

contextual views of the development.

17. Provide a unique & distinctive architectural design that

responds to the landform/context (cues could include the

region’s geology, gentle forms of the escarpment etc)

18. Opportunity for elevation treatment to promote a human

scale, consistent with the pattern of historic built form

within the main street of Aldinga Township. Design to

reflect a ‘village’ feel, rather than that of an institution/

large complex.

Resources

19. Consider how green technologies (water and energy)

may be promoted and made accessible for learning

opportunities.

20. Tree planting to align with State and Council’s tree canopy

targets.

21. Stormwater design to incorporate WSUD principles

to facilitate on-site reuse/ ground water recharge. No

adverse impact on existing water systems (Including Hart

Road Wetland, Aldinga Scrub and Willunga Creek).

22. Opportunity for greater glazing along the east and

southern facades, where solar heat loading is less of an

issue.

Safety & Wellbeing

23. Consider the level of openness and sightlines between the

school and its surroundings. Fencing (where required) is to

be visually permeable/ visually recessive.

24. Consider how built form/landscape contributes to a sense

of ‘connectedness and inclusiveness’ where the school

interfaces with the public realm.

25. Consider design opportunities for the school buildings to

provide passive surveillance to surrounding streets and/or

open space.

Although only six kilometres to the west of

the town of Willunga, Aldinga formed its

own distinctive history. Developed on the

rich agricultural soils of the Aldinga Plains,

Aldinga was at first the by-product of the

farming boom of the 1850s, with cropping

in the region enabling a thriving trade in

wheat and flour.

The township itself was first laid out by

Lewis Fidge, a local farmer, in about 1857.

Quite rapidly the settlement gained a

hotel, church, blacksmith’s shop and a

number of other shops and trades.

By the 1870s land in the vicinity had

become affected by constant planting

and harvesting of wheat and produced

pathetic yields. Consequently, there was

a significant migration of farmers from

Aldinga to the mid-north of SA.

Ngaltingga

The Kaurna people are the traditional

owners of the greater Adelaide plains1.

The Kaurna name for the whole

Aldinga region is Ngaltingga2 and this

area is understood to have been an

important place in traditional Kaurna

life for living, hunting and other cultural

activities. To this day there is evidence

in the region of Aboriginal life prior to

European settlement.3

The Aldinga region is still home

to many people from a range of

Aboriginal nations. The suburbs of

Aldinga, Aldinga Beach, Port Willunga

and Sellicks Beach are collectively

home to nearly 250 people identifying

as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander,

with the Aboriginal population in

Aldinga Beach being higher than our

city’s average.4

The revival of the town’s economy and

livelihood is owed to its location, on the

Old Coach Road from Adelaide to Sellicks

Hill, Myponga and Encounter Bay. In

the late nineteenth and early twentieth

centuries, when people began to see the

area with its rural charm and magnificent

beaches as a perfect holiday spot, the

town was in a unique position to cater for

visitors.

As a new generation of farmers in

and around Aldinga profited from the

introduction of more scientific agriculture,

the town continued to serve as a centre

for farming and tourists.

The historic core of the town has survived,

and today has a growing reputation as a

destination for food, fashion and the arts.

Aldinga Township (2018)

An installation in the Aldinga Library

powerfully conveys an important

history of Kaurna occupation of the

region and its more recent European

history. The name of the installation

is ‘Two Stories - Kuma Munaintya

Taikurringa’ meaning a story

belonging to us as two in common

/ one dreaming in common5. It is

a must see for anyone seeking a

deeper understanding of Ngaltingga-

Aldinga.

12.1 Notice of Motion - Cr Peat - Main South Road Action Group

Background

The duplication of Main South Road is a key issue of interest to our community.

Duplication will provide improvements to the safety of residents, visitors and

commuters who use this prominent road to access the southern suburbs and

Fleurieu Peninsula.

It also has the potential to improve tourism through a more attractive and

comfortable travel experience.

In April 2017 the Strategic Directions Committee and subsequently Council voted:-

“To approve the draft Main South Road Duplication Advocacy Plan in support of a

campaign to accelerate duplication of Main South Road between Seaford and

Sellicks Beach by the state government.”

Since 2017 Council has worked closely with the Main South Road Action Group with

design assistance and advocacy to both State and Federal Governments for

funding.

This work reaped rewards in December 2018 with the State Liberal Government

publicly committing $305 million dollars to the 10 kilometre duplication of South

Road - Seaford to Aldinga Beach.

In reference to the Main South Road Action Group’s presentation this evening and

their continuing commitment to this project, I ask fellow Members to accept the

following Motion as acknowledgement of the excellent work they have undertaken

and their continuing work with Council and other tiers of Government on this

project.

Motion

That the City Of Onkaparinga:-

1. Confirms its support for the work of the Main South Road Action Group

2. Welcomes the State Liberal Government’s commitment to allocating $305

million dollars to the duplication of Main South Road - Seaford to Aldinga

Beach with design and acquisition of land commencing 2019

3. Calls on the State Government (DPTI) to support the adoption at major

intersections along Main South Road (Seaford to Aldinga Beach) over and

underpass intersections as proposed by the Main South Road Action Group

to guarantee efficient traffic flow and optimum safety for road users.

12.3 Notice of Motion to Amend a Resolution of Council - Cr O'Brien re Audit Risk

Value and Efficiency Committee meeting structure and membership

Background

Due to work commitments I am unable to attend the day time meetings of the

Audit, Risk, Value and Efficiency Committee (ARVEC).

To make a change to the current meeting times it requires either the support of the

Chairperson or a Notice of Motion to the chamber.

The Chairperson-David Powell has declined the request stating that there would be

additional security and catering costs and that the current meeting times are

working well. This is an interesting response given that most of the other council

ARVEC meetings are conducted after hours including those currently chaired by

David.

I seek your support to change the meeting times from 6.00pm to 8.00pm with

dates to remain unchanged. I have contacted the other elected members on the

committee who are supportive of the time change.

2. That meetings of the Audit, Risk, Value and Efficiency Committee will be held on

every sixth Monday commencing on 11 February 2019 at 10am, noting that

meeting cycles may vary at the discretion of the Chairperson of the Audit, Risk,

Value and Efficiency Committee.

3. That the following elected members be appointed to the Audit, Risk, Value and

Efficiency Committee from 11 December 2018 until the last Council meeting in

December 2019. Noting that the draft Terms of Reference indicate not more than

three elected members and a proxy member.

 Councillor O’Brien

4. That the draft Terms of Reference of the Audit, Risk, Value and Efficiency

13. Petitions

13.1 Petition - Revocation process for 145 Tatachilla Road, McLaren Vale

H2

This is a receiving report for a petition.

Manager: Jock Berry, Manager Property and Commercial

Report Author: Ric Hambrook, Property Projects Officer

Contact Number: 08 8301 7347

Attachments: 1. Aerial of subject land (1 page)

2. Petition (24 pages)

3. Aerial of nearby Open Space Reserves (1 page)

1. Purpose

This report receives and responds to a petition containing three hundred and fortysix

(346) signatures requesting Council to cease the revocation of community land

process to allow the reserve located at 145 Tatachilla Road, McLaren Vale to remain

as a reserve. The petition further requests that Council develop the land by planting

native trees and vegetation thereby enhancing the appeal of the reserve.

2. Recommendations

1. That the petition shown at attachment 2 to the agenda report be received.

2. That Council considers the matter formally in a report tabled at the meeting

for 19 February 2019.

3. That the head petitioner be notified of Council’s decision resulting from the

consideration of the tabled report.

3. Background

At its meeting on 21 August 2018, Council declared ‘in principle’ that the subject

portion of reserve land bordered in red on attachment 1 to this agenda report was

surplus to open space requirements and suitable for disposal and approved the

commencement of the public consultation phase of the revocation of community

land process. Public consultation, which was deferred due to the Council caretaker

period during Local Government Elections, concluded on 21 December 2018.

The proposal arose from a portion of the reserve land (less than half representing

approximately 3,000 m²) being identified in the Open Space Strategic Management

Plan (OSSMP) as surplus to open space requirements.

The OSSMP included an analysis of council’s open space land holdings to identify

potential land that may not be required for community or open space requirements,

with the view to a long term rationalisation plan to dispose of excess open space to

ultimately deliver a network of high quality open space that meets future

community needs. (Refer to Attachment 3 for nearby open space reserves that

cater to the local community).

City of Onkaparinga

Agenda for the Council meeting to be held on 19 February 2019.

462 Date Printed: 15 February 2019

This presents the opportunity to proactively consider disposal of the subject land to

enable the proceeds to be assigned to the Strategic Acquisitions Reserve Fund to

assist with the funding of future strategic property acquisitions and other

community projects.

4. Financial Implications

There are no financial implications in receiving the petition.

5. Risk and Opportunity Management

Petitions provide a way for the public to inform Council of their needs and concerns

and/or to provide information that may assist or influence Council’s decision on a

matter.
