Mayor and Councillors
Snowy River Shire Council
Myack Street
BERRIDALE NSW 2628



Councillors,


The following information is submitted for your consideration and determination:


1.0      IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SETTLEMENT STRATEGY
                              (Natural Resource Manager)                            (1258)

Issue:         Consideration must be given to prioritising and allocating resources to
               carry out actions in the Snowy River Settlement Strategy.

Background:

At the Environmental Service Committee meeting on 6 August, a recommendation was
made to;

         1.    Provide Councillors with a ‘pro forma’ (attached) setting out actions in the
               Settlement Strategy.
         2.    Councillors to assess, prioritise and add actions if necessary.
         3.    Discuss the implementation of actions at 11.00am on 20 August prior to
               the Council meeting.

Current Position:

A ‘pro forma’ is provided in the attachments.

Environmental Services Comment:

While the strategy sets out good Vision, Principles, Objectives and Policy Directions
implementation of the actions in the strategy is the key to its success.

Recommendation:       That Councillors review the actions outlined in the current draft of
                      the Settlement Strategy (provided separately to Councillors) and
                      assess the priority of each action and the possible resource
                      requirements.

                    to be held on Tuesday, 20 August 2002



2.0      DAMAGED WATER MAIN
                                       (Mgr Water & Waste Services)                    (588)

Issue:         Claim for excess water losses by owner of a property in O’Brien Avenue,
               Berridale.

Background:

On 1 May 2002 Council received correspondence from the owner of a property in
O’Brien Avenue Berridale in relation to a leaking water main that occurred about 16 April
2002 at the same address and the excess water account that may arise.

Previously the owner had verbally notified Council on 16 April 2002 of the leaking water
main at their property, where upon Council staff investigated the problem the following
day. The site investigation revealed that the water leak was on the owner’s side of the
water meter and therefore became the owner’s responsibility to repair.

As a result, Council’s staff (namely the Overseer Water & Waste and the General
Manager’s PA) attempted to contact the owner of the property of the problem and the
need for the owner to engage a licensed plumber to repair the break. These attempts
were made to the home and mobile telephone numbers with no response on 17 and 18
April 2002.

Following this no further calls were made however it should be noted that no indication
was given by the owner that they would not be available or contactable to notify them of
any further problems should they arise. In this case the owner had gone interstate for 10
days.

Council in this situation, and all other past situations, did not turn off the water supply to
the house, in case water is needed in an unknown emergency situation. Additionally
water leaks on private property are the responsibility of the owner/tennant and their
private arrangements.

Finally there were no other reports from neighbours of damages caused by flooding, etc.

The owner was advised that the excess water account and the water mains repair are
the responsibility of the owner and that this decision was in line with similar type excess
water claims (see attachments for correspondence).

Current Situation:

Further discussions with other water authorities (namely Sydney Water, ACTEWAGL,
Cooma Monaro Shire Council and Queanbeyan City Council) revealed that no policies
existed to deal with the problems associated with excess water losses on the property
owner’s side of the water meter. However, each authority did state that they have a
“mains to meter” policy which clearly indicated the limit of their responsibility in terms of
ownership and ongoing maintenance. Due to the fact that in this case licensed plumbers

                    to be held on Tuesday, 20 August 2002



installed the water main beyond the water meter, water authorities cannot be held
accountable or responsible for the workmanship or the ongoing maintenance. In addition
plumbing regulations do not allow Council staff to work on private water mains beyond
the water meter.

Budget Implications:

The potential reimbursement costs for excess water account are approximately $100.
However the precedent set by this case could be astronomical since in the past a
number of claims have been rejected which have amounted to over $1000 each due to
property water mains breaks and excess water losses.

Recommendation: That Council does not approve the reimbursement of the excess
water losses that occurred at a property in O’Brien Avenue Berridale between 16 and 25
April 2002.


3.0       AMENDMENTS TO LEP 1997
                                      (Natural Resource Manager)                     (3972)

Issues:        Implementing the following high priority actions identified in the Snowy
               River Settlement Strategy.

               1. Amending the rural provisions of LEP 1997.
               2. Issue of a certificate to advertise the draft LEP relating to Tyrolean
                  Village Lots 56 DP 818775 and 74 DP 837036 and East Jindabyne
                  Lot 17 DP 236151.

Background:

The Snowy River Settlement Strategy has identified a number of actions that address
key issues in the Shire. Two actions (releasing land for residential development at
Tyrolean Village and East Jindabyne) have already been resolved by Council, but
Planning NSW have requested a strategy prior to advertising the developments.
A third action (to amend the rural provisions of the LEP) is a very high priority. 5
amendments have been proposed (in principle). The rationale for these amendments is
provided separately to Councillors.

Current Position:

The Draft Strategy has been developed. A list of priority actions has been provided to
Councillors in the Settlement Strategy.

Environmental Services Comment:

Council should initiate these planning actions while the Settlement Strategy is on
exhibition to ensure that the priority issues are dealt with in a timely manner.

     Business Paper for the Ordinary Meeting of Snowy River Shire Council
                   to be held on Tuesday, 20 August 2002



Recommendations: That Council resolve to:

                     1. Write to Planning NSW informing them that Council has
                        prepared a strategy that considers all factors in Schedules 1
                        and 3 of the Kosciuszko Regional Plan 1998, and requests
                        that the draft LEPs be exhibited.
                     2. Pursuant to Section 54 of the EP&A Act, Council resolve to
                        make a plan to amend the existing provisions for rural land in
                        regard to subdivision and dwellings.
                     3. Notify Planning NSW of this resolution.
