      NOTICE
      Nil

6     PUBLIC QUESTION TIME
Q1.   MR SHANE O‘NEILL OF 150 BURT STREET, BOULDER
      Question refers to Item 17.1.1, Page 28 (refer to Item).

      Would the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder re assess the Public Liability Insurance
      required for parachute operations and skydiving at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder
      aerodrome.

      The Chief Executive Officer took the question on notice so further research
      can be done through the City‘s insurance company. The City will respond to
      the Aero Club, which response will be tabled at the next Ordinary Council
      Meeting.

Q2.   MR JIM WILLIAMS OF 3 EMERY CLOSE, KALGOORLIE
      Question refers to Item 17.1.1, Page 28 (refer to Item).

      As a long term user of the Kalgoorlie airport, some questions I feel need to be
      addressed by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

      1.     Why did Virgin Blue decide not to come to Kalgoorlie? How many
             hurdles did the city put in place to stop this service?

      2.     An instrument landing system – why is that we have to put up with
             delays due to weather when the technology is out there to be used.
             Why is it not installed?

      3.     Parachuting – why does the city ask double the amount of insurance for
             this activity than other airports in Australia?

      4.     Gliding – why can‘t this activity happen at the airport? The Gliding
             Federation of Australia has not objection to gliding at Kalgoorlie, but the
             City seems to have an objection?

      5.     Hangers – the city is happy to provide a hanger site but these sites are
             located in locations where old concrete footings exist so it makes the
             cost of removing them before you start prohibitive. This site is inside
             the airport boundary and next to another busy airport user so getting to
             and from the gate to your hanger can be unsafe and also cause
             concern for that operator. This site also has not available services and
             these would cost a considerable amount to install. Once you install all
             these services and build the hanger, the City owns these facilities. So
             yes you can have a hanger but the logistics are not worth the outcome


                                       Page 3
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                          14 AUGUST 2006



    6.    Since the Airport was built, how many approaches to Airport
          management regarding access through the boundaries has there been
          and how many enquiries regarding building infrastructure on the airport
          and if so, what procedure has been applied and is there a set format for
          this process.

    7.    The International flight school – is this happening, or is it a white
          elephant designed to stop every other proposal that may be presented
          to the City? Will this face the same security issues as Mr Strange‘s
          proposal?

    8.    Why is there no toilet at the refueling area? This is a security issue as
          the pilot needs to refuel and the passengers need a toilet. The airport
          police get grumpy if they catch you in a mercy dash to the toilet without
          your ASIC card.

    9.    Smoking designated area – The passengers that get off the aircraft and
          have a cigarette outside the door of the Airport terminal, apart from
          being unhealthy is this a good image for the City? If they wish to
          smoke, why can‘t they have a designated area?

    10.   At 3.30pm today, Warren Strange range me as the City was chasing
          information regarding how many other people would use this taxiway.
          Given that the City has had so much time to deal with this process, why
          mess someone around at the last minute with something that should be
          a simple process and be adequately planned for.

    11.   The Regional Airport Scheme – is the Kalgoorlie airport able to access
          this scheme funding for taxiways etc. What Mr Strange is asking for
          can be partially funded through this scheme.

    12.   Are the profits that the airport makes going back into airport related
          infrastructure and is the proposed dog pound an aviation related
          expenditure?

    Comments

    I finish with the reasons that local businesses own aircraft in the Goldfields.
    This is so they can compete with Perth based firms in the Murchison, Southern
    Goldfields and Northern Goldfields by being able to get to sites across the
    region quickly and efficiently. Perth based firms have the wonderful option of
    hoping on the next available flight to site at the cost being borne by the
    company in question. This cost is nowhere the real cost to Goldfields based
    businesses to get to the site in question. So by generating wealth for the
    region you further penalize the users of the airport by stopping access to
    hangers, sports aviation and an airport that can be used during extreme
    weather conditions when it is imperative that people and parts need to get in
    and out.

      The Chief Executive Officer took these questions on notice, to be reported on
      at the next Ordinary Council Meeting.

Q3.   MR MICK MCKAY OF 49 MORAN STREET, BOULDER
      Does this Council like to be known as the Council that reneges on its
      promises?

      Are Councillors aware of the circumstances preceding the Chief Executive
      Officer‘s Plan ―B‖ in regards to the Burt Street, Palm Tree?

      Cr Johnson stated he believed that the Chief Executive Officer acted prudently
      in requiring Council‘s approval before purchasing the $4,000 date palm from
      Mr McKay.

      The Chief Executive Officer noted he had advised Council that the City had
      been offered a palm for $4,000 from Mr McKay, he also advised Council at
      that time that the City was seeking for a palm to be donated. There were
      some suitable, however there were issues with access. Mr McKay then
      offered his palm tree free of charge, which the City then accepted. Both the
      City and Mr McKay were involved in assisting with the project.

Q4.   MR WARREN STRANGE, 10 NAMBI WAY, KALGOORLIE
      Are there any issues or concerns that councillors may have in relation to our
      proposal and in the main, the financial aspects which in my view can be
      significantly less than what you have in front of you?


      Cr Pendal wished to clarify what Mr Strange envisaged for the adjoining
      property to the airport. Mr Strange stated he planned to develop a drill rig
      manufacturing business and to support that he would require access to the
      airport from his business premises. He suggested that 10 properties along the
      airport boundary could utilise the access way, and stated that there were at
      least 5 other business, apart from his, who would purchase a boundary lot if it
      had access to the airport. He also noted access to the airport would support
      his current business, Strange Drilling, combined with this future plan for
      development which he estimated would be worth up to $20 million to the
      Kalgoorlie economy.

      Cr Williams queried Mr Strange‘s time frame for council approval and
      infrastructure to be arranged. He stated January / February 2007 would enable
      him to meet his initial orders. Secondly, Cr Williams queried which other
      airports around Australia are currently doing what Mr Strange is proposing. Mr
      Strange noted a number including Victoria, New South Wales, Gold Coast and
      Gippsland.

      Cr Mason noted the Officer‘s Recommendation require Strange Drilling to be
      responsible for the cost of construction of the taxiway and all associated works
      and expenditure. Mr Strange queried why Strange Drilling should be

      responsible for constructing a taxiway for the benefit of the community,
      especially when other businesses will want to use the service.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
In accordance with Council resolution 4258-26-06-05/06 passed on 26 June 2006,
the draft City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Plan for the Future 2006-2011 has been
advertised for a 28-day period, with only one public submission received during that
time, from the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR).

Pursuant to the abovementioned resolution, Council is now required to consider any
submissions received, and adopt the Plan for the Future 2006-2011.

BACKGROUND
Pursuant to section 5.56(1) of the Local Government Act 1995 (as amended) (the
Act), a local government is to plan for the future of its district. This section of the Act
was changed as part of the ascension of the Local Government Amendment Act
2004, with a Principal Activity Plan no longer being required under the amended Act,
having been replaced with a Plan for the Future.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held on 26 June 2006, it was resolved inter alia as
follows:

     ―THAT COUNCIL:

     1. RECEIVE THE DRAFT CITY OF KALGOORLIE-BOULDER PLAN FOR THE
        FUTURE FOR THE PERIOD 1 JULY 2006 TO 30 JUNE 2011.


     2. PLACE THE DRAFT PLAN FOR THE FUTURE OUT FOR PUBLIC
        COMMENT VIA A LOCAL NOTICE, AS DEFINED BY THE LOCAL
        GOVERNMENT ACT 1995, FOR A 28 DAY PERIOD ENDING 28 JULY 2006.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                             14 AUGUST 2006

      3. INSTRUCT OFFICERS, AT THE EXPIRY OF THE ADVERTISING PERIOD,
         TO PRESENT ANY SUBMISSIONS RECEIVED TO COUNCIL FOR
         CONSIDERATION OR INCORPORATION INTO THE FINAL DOCUMENT,
         AFTER WHICH THE PLAN CAN BE ADOPTED BY COUNCIL.‖

Only one (1) public submission was received during the consultation period, being a
written submission from DSR. A copy of the submission is attached.


COMMENT
2006/07 represents the first financial year that requires a local government to
produce a Plan for the Future, and the Plan is to be in accordance with regulation
19C of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 as detailed below:

19C. Planning for the future — s. 5.56

(1)     In this regulation and regulation 19D —
        ―plan for the future‖ means a plan made under section 5.56.

(2)     A local government is to make a plan for the future of its district in respect of
        the period specified in the plan (being at least 2 financial years).

(3)     A plan for the future of a district is to set out the broad objectives of the local
        government for the period specified in the plan.

(4)     A local government is to review its current plan for the future of its district
        every 2 years and may modify the plan, including extending the period the
        plan is made in respect of.

(5)     A council is to consider a plan, or modifications, submitted to it and is to
        determine* whether or not to adopt the plan, or the modifications, as is
        relevant.

        *Absolute majority required.

(6)     If a plan, or modified plan, is adopted by the council then the plan or modified
        plan is to apply to the district for the period of time specified in the plan.

(7)     A local government is to ensure that the electors and ratepayers of its district
        are consulted during the development of a plan for the future of the district,
        and when preparing any modifications of a plan.

(8)     A plan for the future of a district is to contain a description of the involvement
        by the electors and ratepayers in the development of the plan, and any
        modifications of the plan.

(9)     A local government is to ensure that a plan for the future made in accordance
        with this regulation applies in respect of each financial year after the financial
        year ending 30 June 2006.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                          14 AUGUST 2006

Regulation 19C (7) stipulates that electors and ratepayers must be consulted during
the development of the Plan for the Future.

Regulation 19D of the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996
concerning the advertisement of the Plan refers below:

19D. Notice of plan to be given

(1)    After a plan for the future, or modifications to a plan, are adopted under
      regulation 19C the local government is to give local public notice in
      accordance with subsection (2).

(2)   The local public notice is to contain —

      (a) notification that —

             (i)    a plan for the future of the district has been adopted by the
                    council and is to apply to the district for the period specified in
                    the plan; and

             (ii)   details of where and when the plan may be inspected;

      or

      (b) where a plan for the future of the district has been modified —

             (i)    notification that the modifications to the plan have been adopted
                    by the council and the plan as modified is to apply to the district
                    for a the period specified in the plan; and

             (ii)   details of where and when the modified plan may be inspected.

The issues raised by DSR in their submission have been noted by the Chief
Executive Officer, and it is suggested that these matters are best dealt with by the
City‘s Executive Group Administration (EGA), rather than be referenced in the Future
Plan. The reason is that the City has focussed on its major projects over the next 5
years in drafting the Plan, and it is felt that the issues raised by DSR in their
submission are procedural, and will be considered by EGA. Council has set aside
funds in the 2006/07 budget, to review the existing playing fields and identify future
requirements.

STATUTORY IMPLICATIONS
Local Government Act 1995 (as amended) Section 5.56 applies.

Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 Regulations 19C and 19D also
apply as detailed above.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS
There are no policy implications resulting from the recommendations of this report.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The application period for the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community Grants Scheme
closed on 30 April 2006. The submitted applications have been reviewed and funding
recommendations are included in this report to Council.

BACKGROUND
The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community Events Grants Scheme (CEGS) provides
community organisations with an opportunity to apply for funding to conduct annual
events or to gain a financial contribution for the development of new events.

The Community Events Grant Scheme allows community organisations to submit an
application for between $1000 and $5000 for large events where the City will become
a ‗partner‘ for the event. The applications for these grants closed on 30 April 2006.

To provide a means for Council to contribute towards other events throughout the
year, the Community Events Grants Scheme has an ad hoc application process that
allows community groups to submit an application at any stage throughout the year
for a maximum contribution of $1000.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting of 28 September 2005 Council resolved as follows:-

  ―THAT COUNCIL IN RELATION TO THE MANAGEMENT OF EVENTS:

  1. ENDORSE THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER TO FORMALISE THE
    CORDINATION OF EVENTS BY AMENDING THE COMMUNITY
    DEVELOPMENT PROJECT OFFICER POSITION TO BECOME A PROJECT
    AND EVENT CORDINATOR POSITION.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                          14 AUGUST 2006

  2. IMPLEMENT THE TIER MODEL OF EVENT MANAGEMENT TO DEFINE THE
     CITY‘S ROLE IN COORINATING AND CONTRIBUTING TO EVENTS
     CONDUCTED IN KALGOORLIE-BOULDER.

  3. IMPLEMENT THE COMMUNITY EVENTS GRANT SCHEME IN 2006/07 TO
     ALLOW COMMUNITY GROUPS TO APPLY FOR EVENT FUNDING AS
     DEFINDED IN THE COMMUNITY EVENTS GRANTS SCHEME CONDITIONS.

 4. UTILISED THE CITY OF KALGOORLIE-BOULDER SPONSORSHIP
    BROCHURE TO ASSIST WITH SOURCING EXTERNAL FUNDS FOR CITY OF
    KALGOORLIE-BOULDER EVENTS‖.

Advertising of the CEGS program commenced in mid and late March 2006.
Organisations that had previously sought Council support for community events were
contacted and advised of the CEGS requirements. A copy of the CEGS application
form was uploaded on to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder website and meetings with
community groups were undertaken by the City‘s Event Coordinator to assist in their
understanding of CEGS.

The 2006/07 City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder budget has an allocation of $20,000 in COA
71612 (Community Events Grants Scheme) to encompass CEGS funding for both the
annual ‗Partnership‘ funding and the ad-hoc ‗Contribution‘ funding.

COMMENT
Following the closing date for ‗Partnership‘ funding on 30 April 2006 there were 4
applications submitted for CEGS funding totalling $17,000.           Officers have
recommended that $7,500 of this funding be granted. Officers‘ recommendation
attached.

The City‘s officers have utilised the following criteria to assess each application and
derive the recommendations for this report:
   1. Based in Kalgoorlie-Boulder
   2. Not for Profit organisation
   3. Free, Inaugural event
   4. Target groups included
   5. Attendance anticipated
   6. Other funding sources
   7. Significant contribution from organisation
   8. Realistic budget
   9. Sufficient Council recognition

The community events that have recommended funding include:

      RIO Festival Family Fun Day                                 $3,000
       A whole of community focused free event held in Boulder each year that
       encourages families to take time out together. Conducted at Loopline Park,
       local and national entertainers come together to create a festival atmosphere
       for an afternoon as part of the RIO Festival. $3000 was requested as per last
       year‘s contribution.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                          14 AUGUST 2006

      Sports Star of the Year                                   $2,000
       An annual awards evening held by the Goldfields Sport Development
       Association that recognises the outstanding achievements of sportspeople in
       Kalgoorlie-Boulder community. $2000 was requested as per last year‘s
       contribution.

      Facing Australia: The National Photographic Portrait Project $2,500
       This event presents a rare opportunity for the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community to
       participate in a National event. Individuals from Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be
       recruited, photographed and their images digitally layered to create a
       composite male and female portrait. The Face of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will
       provide a visual social document contributing to the national archive so as to
       inform generations to come who we were in the early part of the 21st century.
       $5000 was requested.

       A further submission was received from the Kalgoorlie District Pony Club for
       $5000 toward a club event however was confined to one sport. The
       opportunity exists for the club to make approach for ad hoc funding noting that
       $500 was provided last year.

       Further information regarding these applications is available upon request.

       If the recommended ‗Partnership‘ funding amounts are approved there will be
       a remaining budget figure of $12,500 available for the ad-hoc ‗Contribution‘
       applications, made to Council throughout the year. This amount will provide
       sufficient coverage for the ad hoc grants for up to $1000 and in-kind support
       applications throughout 2006/07. In the past there has been difficulty in
       supporting one-off community events due to budget restrictions. An added
       feature of the ‗Contribution‘ component of CEGS is that it will allow a more
       accurate analysis of the City‘s in-kind contributions to events held in
       Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

STATUTORY IMPLICATIONS
There are no statutory implications resulting from the recommendations of this report.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The 2006/07 City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder budget has an allocation of $20,000 in COA
71612 for the Community Events Grants Scheme. On the endorsement of the
recommended ‗Partnership‘ amounts ($7,500) there will be $12,500 remaining for ad-
hoc ‗Contribution‘ applications for the 2006/07 financial year.

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION
No community consultation was considered necessary in relation to the
recommendations of the report.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Council is requested to consider an application for town planning approval for the
construction of a two storey Single Dwelling.

The application requires Council‘s determination, as it is a requirement of planning
delegations that two storey dwellings that require planning approval are presented for
Council‘s consideration.

The application has been recommended for conditional approval.

BACKGROUND
The subject site, Lot 24 (20) McCleery Drive, Somerville, is zoned ‗General
Residential R12.5‘ under the City of Kalgoorlie Boulder Town Planning Scheme,
where the use class ‗Dwelling – Single‘ is classified as a ―P‖ (permitted) use.

The subject site is situated on the south - western side of McCleery Drive. The lot has
a total area of 848m2. A location plan is attached.

The proposal is to construct a single, two storey dwelling. Plans of the proposed
development, including site plan, elevations and upper floor plans are attached.



                                      Page (23)
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                                14 AUGUST 2006

The proposal has been assessed against the Acceptable Development Criteria set
out in the ‗Residential Design Codes (2002) of Western Australia‘ (‗R-Codes‘) and
complies with all relevant Acceptable Development Criteria, aside from Clause
3.8.1(A1)(i) of the R-Codes. This clause pertains to privacy issues and reads as
follows -

      A1      Major openings to active habitable spaces or their equivalent
              which have a floor level more than 0.5m above natural ground
              level and positions so as to overlook any part of any other
              residential property behind its street setback line, to comply with
              at least one of the following:
      i)      are set back in direct line of sight within the cone of vision, from
              the boundary a minimum of:
                   4.5 meters in the case of bedrooms;
                   6.0 metres in the case of habitable rooms other than
                    bedrooms; and
                   7.5 metres in the case of unenclosed outdoor active
                    habitable spaces (balconies, decks, verandahs and the
                    like).

The privacy provisions only apply to the development of active habitable spaces, with
major openings, which are proposed to have a floor level more than 0.5 metres
above natural ground level and positioned so as to overlook any part of a residential
property behind its street setback line. As such, the privacy provisions potentially
apply to any bedrooms, other indoor, habitable spaces, and to balconies (and the
like) located on the second storey or above of any multi-storey development.

Part 2 of the R-Codes defines a habitable room to include the following:
      a bedroom, living room, lounge room, music room, sitting room,
      television room, kitchen, dining room, sewing room, study, playroom,
      sunroom, gymnasium, fully enclosed swimming pool or patio.

Part 2 of the R-Codes defines major openings as:
      A window, door, or other opening in the exterior wall of a habitable room
      that provides substantial external means of light or view for that room or
      space, but does not include an opening or openings that:
          In aggregate do not exceed on square metre in any such wall,
           (provided that adjoining or contiguous windows at the junction of two
           walls forming an internal angle of 90 degrees or less shall be
           aggregated); or
          Are glazed in an obscure material and are not openable; or
          Have a sill height not less than 1.6m above floor level.

This particular development has 5 major openings on the second storey of the
proposed development. This includes:
   1 window in bedroom 4, and is 2.188 metres from the boundary, rather than the
    acceptable development distance of 4.5 metres;

                                         Page (24)
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                         14 AUGUST 2006

   1 window in the family room, and is 1.6 metres from the boundary, rather than the
    acceptable development distance of 6.0 metres;
   1 window in the dining room , and is 1.6 metres from the boundary, rather than
    the acceptable development distance of 6.0 metres;
   1 window in the kitchen, and is 1.7 metres from the boundary, rather than the
    acceptable development distance of 6.0 metres; and
   Porch (Patio), and is 1.865 metres from the boundary, rather than the acceptable
    development distance of 7.5 metres.

Those habitable rooms with major openings shown on the second storey of the
proposed single dwelling are adjacent to the northern side boundary dividing the
subject lot and the neighbouring property, Lot 26 (9) Great Eastern Highway,
Kalgoorlie. Lot 26 (9) Great Eastern Highway, Kalgoorlie is vacant and has a total
area of 25,623m2. This property is zoned ‗General Residential R2‘, although there are
proposals to rezone the site for commercial development. Additionally Lot 26 (9)
Great Eastern Highway is owned by the applicant subject to this development
application.

Under the current zoning, if Lot 26 (9) Great Eastern Highway was to be subdivided
and developed at a later time, the subdivided properties would be required to be
5000m2 in accordance with the site requirements of the ‗General Residential R2‘
zone. It is highly unlikely any residence on a neighbouring subdivided property would
be in the ‗cone of vision‘ of the proposed single dwelling at Lot 24 (20) McCleery
Drive.

It should also be noted that not meeting any Acceptable Development Criteria , in
and of itself, is not a sound basis on which to refuse or require modifications to a
proposal. Instead, the proposal must be considered in the context of the relevant
Performance Criteria, which is as follows –

      P1 Avoid direct overlooking between active habitable spaces and
         outdoor living areas of the development site and the habitable
         rooms and outdoor living areas within adjoining residential
         properties taking account of:
           The positioning of windows to habitable rooms on the
            development site and the adjoining property;
           The provision of effective screening; and
           The lesser need to prevent overlooking of extensive back
            gardens, front gardens or areas visible from the street.


In addition to complying with all relevant Acceptable Development Criteria set out in
the R-Codes, except the privacy provisions outlined above, the proposal is also
consistent with all relevant Local Planning Policies and relevant provisions of the
Scheme.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                           14 AUGUST 2006

CONSULTATION
The application was referred to the City‘s Development Control Unit (‗DCU‘, ie
Environmental Health, Waste Management, Building and Engineering Teams).
Comments received from DCU have no material bearing on the consideration of this
application.

The application has not been advertised to the public as the setback variation, which
pertains to visual privacy, only affect Lot 26 (9) Great Eastern Highway, which is also
owned by the applicant.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
There are no direct financial implications resulting from the recommendations of this
report.

COMMENT
The proposed development is considered to be acceptable as it meets all of the
acceptable development criteria of the R-Codes, other than setback of major
openings over 0.5m above natural ground level.

Whilst it is somewhat difficult to properly assess the privacy issue in this case, it is
considered that the proposal is consistent with relevant performance criteria. The
adjoining property is currently vacant and has a substantial total area. It is unlikely
future residential development on the adjoining affected neighbouring property would
be impacted by the reduced setbacks. Additionally the affected neighbouring property
is the same owner as the applicant of the proposed single dwelling, further minimising
privacy issues associated with the reduced setback.

Given the above, it is recommended that the application is approved.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Council is requested to consider an application for planning approval to construct a
carport at Lot 2849 (57) Oberthur Street, Kalgoorlie.

The application has been recommended for approval subject to conditions.

BACKGROUND
Lot 2849 Oberthur Street is zoned ‗General Residential R20‘. The subject site is
located on the southern side of Oberthur Street and is located in the block bounded
by Lionel and Hopetoun Streets. A location plan is included as an attachment to this
report.

There is an existing duplex located on the site with a common wall between the two
dwellings. The two dwellings are occupied by the applicant and members of the
applicant‘s family.

It is proposed to construct a large carport at the front of the western dwelling, known
as 57A Oberthur Street. The carport is proposed to be 8.1m deep and 8.23m wide
(66m²). It is proposed to locate the carport 1.5m from the front property boundary
and 1m from either side boundary.

It is also proposed to erect a front boundary fence in front of the eastern dwelling, 57
Oberthur Street. The proposed fence is consistent with the acceptable development
criteria of the Residential Design Codes.

The applicant is the owner/operator of a taxi business, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Taxis,
which operates from the subject site. In addition to the taxi business, the applicant
also owns and operates a small courier/shuttle business. There are four vehicles
used in conjunction with these commercial operations, none of which are defined as



                                       Page 28
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                               14 AUGUST 2006

commercial vehicles under the Scheme.           Furthermore, these vehicles are only
operated by occupants of the dwelling.

The current commercial activities are not considered to fall under the Scheme‘s
definition of ‗home occupation‘ or ‗home business‘ as the business does not involve
clients travelling to and from the site. The commercial operations are best classified
as a ‗home office‘ under the Scheme definition. A home office is a permitted use
under Table 1 of the Scheme and is exempt from the need to obtain planning
approval.

In relation to the proposed carport, Clause 3.2.3 of the Residential Design Codes
controls the impact of garages and carports on the streetscape.

The Performance Criteria for Clause 3.2.3 states as follows:

P3    The setting back of carports and garages so as not to detract from the
      streetscape or appearance of dwellings, or obstruct views of dwellings from
      the street and vice versa.

Applications that meet the following acceptable development criteria (clause A3.4)
are deemed to comply with the performance criteria outlined above:

     ―Carports within the street setback area, provided that the width of carport
     does not exceed 50 per cent of the frontage at the building line and the
     construction allows an unobstructed view between the dwelling and street,
     right-of-way of equivalent.‖

The proposed carport occupies approximately 80% of the frontage at the building
line, and therefore does not meet the acceptable development criteria outlined above.
The application must therefore be considered in the context of the relevant
performance criteria.

CONSULTATION
Internal Consultation

The application was referred to the City‘s Development Control Unit (‗DCU‘, i.e.
Environmental Health, Waste Management, Building and Engineering Teams).

None of the comments received from DCU had any material bearing on consideration
of the application.

External Consultation

External/community consultation was not considered necessary in the assessment of
this application.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
There are no direct financial implications resulting from the recommendations of this
report.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                              14 AUGUST 2006

COMMENT
It is considered that the proposed development is consistent with the performance
criteria of the Residential Design Codes, as specified in the ‗Background‘ section of
this report, as the carport is unlikely to significantly impact on the streetscape, and it
will not obstruct the view from the dwelling to the street and vice versa.

While the proposed carport does exceed more than 50% of the frontage, it should be
noted that 57A Oberthur Street has a narrow frontage of approximately 10m.
Furthermore, the entire frontage of Lot 2849 is approximately 20 metres,
encompassing both dwellings. If the subject site were occupied by a single dwelling
rather than a duplex, the proposed carport would meet the acceptable development
criteria of the R-Codes, as it would be less than 50% of the frontage.

The proposed location of the carport is currently used as uncovered, on site car
parking for the vehicles described in the ‗Background‘ section of this report. Should
this application be refused, it is likely that the occupants of the dwelling will continue
to park vehicles in this location.

For the reasons outlined above, it is considered that the proposed development will
not have any significant adverse effects on the streetscape or adjoining properties,
and can therefore be recommended for approval subject to conditions.

Cr Williams declared an impartiality interest in this item by virtue of ‖Member
Equestrian Federation of Australia‖.


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The City has received a request from the Department for Planning and Infrastructure
(DPI) for consideration of LAA Section 91 Licences at Lots 1282 – 1284, 4999 and
5022, Kalgoorlie for ‗equestrian training‘ purposes.

This request requires Council‘s determination as, currently, no advice may be
provided under delegated authority if the area of land in question is more than
5000m² in area and the site is within 10km of either the Boulder or Kalgoorlie Town
Halls. It is recommended that the City support DPI‘s request.

BACKGROUND
The land under consideration is Unallocated Crown Land bound by the Water
Corporation waterworks plant, the explosives reserve, stables and residential
dwellings. Access to the land is facilitated via Piccadilly Street. It is worth noting that
the land is already being used for purposes similar to those for which licences are
being sought. A location plan is attached.

DPI has indicated that past attempts to formalise tenure in this area have stalled for
several reasons, including concerns about the Native Title process and the
requirements for heritage surveys over the area. Given the above, DPI is therefore
investigating whether S91 Licences may be a satisfactory option to satisfy the
applicants‘ requirements for the land in a timely manner.

The purpose of the Licences will be ‗Equestrian Training‘ with terms of five years.
DPI proposes to impose the following conditions:

      No enclosed fencing;
      No permanent structures, improvements or fixtures;
      No agistment;
      Non transferable;

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                             14 AUGUST 2006

      No interest or estate;
      No right of exclusive possession;
      Compliance with Legislation and Regulations;
      No environmental damage;
      No disposal or storage of garbage or poisonous or toxic substances;
      No act or manner or thing that would constitute a nuisance or fire hazard;
      No excavation or further clearing;
      Responsible for all outgoings;
      All internal clearing;
      Public indemnity insurance of $10,000,000.00;
      Licence fee to be paid plus GST; and
      Compliance with any Low Impact Future Act provision of the Native Title Act
       which may apply.

CONSULTATION
The application was referred to the City‘s Environmental Health, Waste Management,
Building and Engineering Teams. None of the comments received had any material
bearing on consideration of DPI‘s request.

The site adjoins a number of residential properties, the majority of which are
developed with stables, as are other nearby properties. It is considered appropriate to
consult with the owners of those nearby properties (some of whom are also the
applicants).

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
There are no direct financial implications resulting from the recommendations of this
report.

COMMENT
Given the potential problems associated with informal use of Unallocated Crown
Land for ‗equestrian‘ purposes, especially in close proximity to developed areas, the
formalisation of arrangements is, in and of itself, seen as positive. It is also seen as
desirable that arrangements are formalised sooner, rather than later.

As pointed out in the ‗Background‘ section of this report, the subject land is already
being used for purposes similar to those for which licences are being sought.

Prior to responding to DPI, however, it is considered appropriate that nearby

undertaking of appropriate consultation, however, should no objections be received, it
extends delegation to allow a positive response to be provided to DPI without further

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This matter was last considered by Council at its 26 June 2006 meeting when it was
resolved as follows:

       ―THAT COUNCIL RECEIVE THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN RELATION
       TO THE GLOBE DRILL PROPOSAL AND AGREE TO AGAIN CONSIDER
       THE MATTER WHEN OFFICERS HAVE COMPLETED THEIR FURTHER
       INVESTIGATIONS.‖

Members will recall that the General Manager of Strange Drilling, Mr Warren Strange,
had made a presentation to the 15 May 2006 meeting of the All Purpose Committee
where he outlined his proposals to expand the company‘s drill rig manufacturing
business.

In a subsequent e-mail presented to the 26 June 2006 Council meeting, Mr Strange
advised that: ―There was still some pressure from potential investors and some of our
potential customers to manufacture from Perth and overseas, however, I still believe
that Globe Drill can manufacture, export and support its product from Kalgoorlie.‖ Mr
Strange continued by stating: ―… successful support to our customers from Kalgoorlie
is dependent on access to the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport via (adjoining) private
property.‖

BACKGROUND
A number of issues first need to be resolved if this proposal is to proceed.

Firstly, the aviation security implications need to be examined and assessed.

This matter was referred to DOTARS‘ Office of Transport Security which responded
as follows:


                                       Page 35
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                             14 AUGUST 2006

―Thanks for your enquiry in relation to the proposed development adjacent to
Kalgoorlie Airport. From your correspondence I understand that the proposed
development is to be located on freehold land immediately adjacent to the boundary
of the security controlled airport and that the proposed development "involves the
establishment of accesses direct from the warehouse or manufacturing compound
onto the airport. The warehouse itself or the compound (one or the other) would
share a common boundary with the airport." Further, the proposed access is direct
from landside to the airside of the airport.

At a minimum, the (City) of Kalgoorlie-Boulder as the airport operator would need to
ensure that security outcomes at the airport are not compromised and that all security
requirements and measures in the ATSA, ATSR and Kalgoorlie(-Boulder) Airport TSP
can continue to be met.

If there is access to the airside from the landside through the warehouse (which on
your advice will not be within the boundaries of the security controlled airport) the
(City) will need to ensure that the appropriate security measures are in place to
address all risks arising from that scenario. This would, at a minimum, require the
(City) to undertake a risk assessment in relation to the proposal and, dependent upon
the outcome of that risk assessment, the (City) may need to amend the TSP to
include new or additional security measures. Obviously, amongst other things,
ensuring the integrity of the airside area is critical to the maintenance of security
outcomes at the airport.

I note Reg. 2.16 requires the AIP to set out the security measures and procedures to
be used within the airport to control access at the airport. Subreg. 2.16(2) provides
for the TSP to include a timetable for implementation of measures and procedures
that have not been implemented. Perhaps Subreg. 2.16(2) can be used once
Kalgoorlie(-Boulder) Airport has more information on the proposed development and
has given consideration to the security measures it will put in place to ensure the
integrity of the airside area.‖

It is proposed to engage professional consultants to provide the necessary risk
assessment and for the airside access issue to also be examined by the Kalgoorlie-
Boulder Airport Security Committee at its August 2006 meeting.

The second issue is that relating to the construction of a general aviation taxiway
linking the site of the proposed development to Runway 11/29.

In relation to this matter, Mr Strange in his e-mail commented as follows: ―One of the
questions raised at my presentation to the (All) Purpose Committee was ―How was
the City of Kalgoorlie going to recover the expense of providing taxiway access from
the air strip to these properties?‖ I can only speculate on the benefits to the City from
the new business this access will generate and I would hope that growing businesses
in Kalgoorlie that are planning to move their operations to Perth and even smaller
communities that provide airport access may have reason to keep their operations
based in Kalgoorlie should they be able to support their field operations better from 0.

This is perhaps more than would be needed for a single twin-engine Cessna
Conquest 441 aircraft of the type proposed by Mr Strange, however, the existing


                                       Page (36)
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                            14 AUGUST 2006

taxiways were engineered in this way in order to obviate future pavement
maintenance issues.

Members are reminded that the taxiway would need to be maintained in good
condition over the long-term and responsibility for doing so would rest with the City.

The following estimates were received in relation to the proposed new taxiway civil
works:

OPTION 1: CONSTRUCTED TO EXISTING GA TAXIWAY DESIGN CRITERIA:         $646,700.00
OPTION 2: CONSTRUCTED AS A STANDARD ROADWAY:                          $372,560.00

To these should be added an additional $5,000 for line-marking.

Electrical engineering firm Cunningham & Associates has provided an estimate of
$167,000 for taxiway lighting. The estimate assumes the lighting circuit to originate
from the proponent‘s new apron and be actuated by the proponent on an as-required
basis. In other words, the circuit would be completely separate from the airport‘s
existing taxiway lighting circuit.

The estimate also notes that significant additional costs would apply for feeder cable
and mains isolating transformer capacity originating from the airport site main
switchboard.

No allowance has been made for remote PAALC actuation of the lighting.

COMMENT
As previously mentioned, in accordance with the advice of DOTARS a security risk
assessment will need to be undertaken in order for Council to determine its position
regarding this proposal.

Should the assessment confirm that the development can proceed, conditional
approval could then be granted. The question of funding for the necessary
associated infrastructure would then need to be determined.

In all previous instances where infrastructure on City-controlled property has been for
the sole benefit of a particular developer, the developer has been responsible for all
related costs.

Should the off-site proposal not proceed for any reason an alternative may remain
open for Strange Drilling to occupy leased premises on airport land for the business
purposes outlined by it.

Mr Strange‘s initial approaches to the City regarding this matter related to a proposal
to construct a hangar on the airport in which to park his aircraft. He subsequently
advised, however, that his investors were not in favour of investing capital in
infrastructure on leased land. Nevertheless, the lease option may become more
attractive if a long-term tenancy was on offer.



                                      Page (37)
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                                14 AUGUST 2006

Two related issues arise at this point that may have some bearing on the matter. The
first is that Council approved an amount in the current airport budget with which to
conduct a study into the need for a private aircraft hangar development on the airport.

The second issue is that such a study may be affected to a degree by responses
received in relation to the international flying training facility proposal. If, for example,
those responses indicate that there is insufficient demand for such a facility, then it
would be recommended that the space set aside be devoted to private/general
aviation aircraft hangarage development.              This facility could incorporate a
warehousing element from which Mr Strange could distribute drilling rig spare parts -
as is apparently the aircraft‘s primary purpose. Such a use would likely not
contravene the airport reserve‘s use designation - ‗Airport Purposes‘ - as the primary
use would be for aircraft hangarage. This would need to be confirmed, however, it
may be that such a facility could be constructed by the City to the lessee‘s design
specification.

In the event, however, that the flying training facility was eventually supported, there
are other locations within the airport on which to accommodate the Strange Drilling
requirements which all parties may consider appropriate.

In addition, a number of operational issues would need to be further investigated.
The first of these is that the VOR/DME navigation aid site to the south of the main
runway is protected by three exclusion radii. The first of 600 metres excludes
overhead HV power lines. The second (within the first) is the VOR/DME protection
zone with a radius of 300 metres. This zone prohibits ―overhead powerlines and
structures of any description. Moving vehicles (minimum speed 30 km/h) permitted.‖
The third exclusion zone (inside the second) comprises a Restricted Area with a
radius of 100 metres around the VOR/DME. No unauthorised vehicles or personnel
are allowed.

The proposed taxiway would penetrate the Restricted Area by a significant margin.

Airservices Australia is responsible for maintaining these radio navigation sites and is
quite rigorous in their protection.

The second issue relates to the fact that Runway 11/29 is surrounded by a 300-metre
wide runway strip. That is, the strip extends 150 metres either side of the runway
centreline. Runway and taxiway strips need to conform to separation distances
stipulated in the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations Manual of Standards. The
necessary separation distance between the Runway 11/29 strip and the proposed
new taxiway strip would appear to preclude the construction of a taxiway in the
location indicated.

The situation is perhaps best illustrated by reference to the airport‘s Master Plan.
Runway 11/29 is located within the airport‘s east/west margin but is not located
centrally. It is offset somewhat to the south to allow for the eventual construction on
its northern side of a parallel taxiway system beyond the runway strip. No taxiway
system was ever intended to be constructed to the south of the main runway and
there is therefore insufficient space available to now do so.

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                            14 AUGUST 2006

These are matters regarding which the input of both Airservices Australia and CASA
may be required.

STATUTORY IMPLICATIONS
The need to conduct an aviation security assessment is clear and, dependent on the
continued disposition of the proponent, such an assessment would need to be
conducted as an early measure.

It is also a requirement that the advice of the Airport Security Committee be sought.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS
The planning implications arising from allowing airside access to Mr Strange (were
such access to be approved) would also need close consideration. Similar access
could not be denied to other landholders with lots adjoining the airport reserve and a
policy would need to be developed wherein area limitations on such access are
stipulated.

This is an issue which would need to be considered as part of the aviation security
assessment, that is, that Mr Strange‘s may in the long-term not be the only such
access proposal.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The financial implications of the proposal are unclear. Costs which will need to be
met include for the construction and lighting of the taxiway itself; its on-going
maintenance; and the costs associated with the provision of appropriate perimeter
airside security access.

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION
Consultation with the Airport Security Committee and the aviation security assessor
only are proposed at this stage.

VOTING REQUIREMENTS
Simple.

ADDITIONAL COMMENT
Cr Pendal moved an alternative recommendation as embodied in the resolution
below as he believed there were many benefits to the City with the proposed
development.

OFFICER‘S RECOMMENDATION

That Council:

1.    Request the Chief Executive Officer to hold discussions with Strange Drilling
      Pty Ltd with a view to determining if it wishes to proceed with its airside access
      proposal from adjacent private land on the bases that all costs associated with
      doing so, including but not limited to costs relating to the tender process as
      necessary for the selection of civil engineering consultants for the taxiway
      design, contract and construction supervision and the appointment of

COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                               14 AUGUST 2006

        construction contractors for the construction of the taxiway and all associated
        works and expenditure, including the costs of all consultation and construction,
        are to be borne by Strange Drilling.

2.      In the event that Strange Drilling confirms those requirements, request the
        Chief Executive Officer to engage appropriately qualified and professional
        consultants to conduct the necessary aviation security risk assessment that
        addresses all risks arising from the Strange Drilling proposal and require that
        Strange Drilling be responsible for the costs of such consultancy.

3.      Acknowledge that, in any event, the matter is to be discussed at the next
        meeting of the Airport Security Committee.

4.      In the event that Strange Drilling reverts to its original preferred position which
        sought to identify an appropriate leasehold site within the airport reserve upon
        which to establish appropriate aircraft hangarage and associated facilities,
        request the Chief Executive Officer to facilitate those investigations and
        negotiations and to report back to Council regarding the Strange Drilling site,
        lease, and infrastructure provision requirements, that is, whether Strange
        Drilling require a bare site lease and the proposed provision relating to such a
        lease, or whether it would wish to lease a site plus the associated
        infrastructure to be erected by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder in general
        accordance with the specifications of Strange Drilling and the proposed
        provisions relating to that scenario.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The purpose of this item is to provide Elected Members with background information
relating to a request to brickpave the verge area adjacent to the property on the
corner of Lane and Piesse streets, Boulder.

The matter was raised by the owner of the property, Mr McKay, during Public
Question Time at the Ordinary Meetings of Council held on 26 June 2006 and 10 July
2006.

Assessment of the existing footpath by officers has confirmed that the requested
works are of a low priority and would be unlikely to be recommended for inclusion on
the footpath construction program for the next few years at least.

BACKGROUND
At the Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 26 June 2006, Mr Mick McKay asked the
following question during Public Question Time:-

―Could Council advise as to when brickpaving on footpath on the corner of Piesse
and Lane St Boulder will be done. It has been promised for over 12 months now and
the reasons for it not being done as yet just seem to be ongoing. Shop on the corner
has to place a large mat at entrance to their shop to prevent customers falling over
unsafe pavement‖.

In response to the above question, the following explanation was sent to Mr McKay
by letter on 30 June 2006.

―Brickpaving – Corner of Lane and Piesse Streets, Boulder

In response to your request for a higher priority to be placed on brickpaving the verge
adjacent to your property on the corner of Piesse and Lane streets, officers inspected
the area with a view to reassessing the urgency of the works. Given that the property
is serviced by near new 1.5m wide concrete footpaths on both street frontages, it is
difficult to justify awarding anything other than a very low priority to your request. To
do otherwise would be totally unfair to all of those residents currently without
footpaths servicing their properties. Based on this and the backlog of higher priority

                                        Page 42
COUNCIL MEETING MINUTES                                             14 AUGUST 2006

footpath works, it is unlikely that officers will be able to recommend that the paving be
included on the works programs for the next few years at least.

The existing asphalt paved section of the verge under shop‘s verandah will be
inspected and repaired as necessary by the maintenance crew. Please be aware,
however, that the section of land that has been truncated to provide corner access to
the building is actually part of your property and is not the responsibility of Council.
Accordingly, if a problem exists within the truncation, responsibility for repairs rests
with you as the property owner.

There is, however, an option available to you should you desire the brickpaving to be
completed in a shorter timeframe, and that is to apply for financial assistance through
the City‘s brickpaving assistance scheme. This scheme was established to assist
property owners such as you, and has been accessed by numerous commercial
property owners over many years to upgrade or beautify their verge areas.‖

Mr McKay then tabled a further Public Question in relation to this matter at the
Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 10 July 2006, which read as follows:-

―Is Council aware of the process involving brickpaving in Piesse Street, Boulder‖.

During discussion on this question, Mr McKay raised numerous issues that could not
be addressed on the night of the meeting. As a consequence, the Mayor requested
that officers prepare a report addressing the issues raised by Mr McKay for the
further consideration of Council.

COMMENT
As indicated in Mr McKay‘s Public Question of the 26 June 2006, the initial request to
have the verge area adjacent to the subject property paved was put to officers
approximately eighteen (18) months ago. At that time, and as is normal practice, the
request was put on file for further consideration. Factors taken into consideration
when assessing footpath/paving requests include safety issues, funding availability
and priority when compared to other works on the backlog list. It should be noted
that at the time the request was lodged, officers were not aware that the requested
works included the removal of approximately seventy five (75) lineal metres of good
quality concrete footpath.

The situation described above has not changed in the time since the application was
first lodged, with the City‘s footpath and paving programs being such that the
Piesse/Lane works have remained a low priority and that situation is unlikely to
change for the foreseeable future. Further explanation is contained in the City‘s letter
of 30 June 2006 which is included under Background in this item.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The purpose of this item is to obtain Council approval to invite tenders for the
following contracts:-
      Provision of a Kerbside Recycling Service
      Supply of 12,000 only x 240 litre Mobile Garbage Bins
      Distribution of 240 litre Mobile Garbage Bins.

BACKGROUND
Council, during budget deliberations, endorsed the introduction of a full kerbside
recycling service for the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder in this financial year, to commence
in February 2007.

COMMENT
It is recommended that Council authorise the Chief Executive Officer to call three
tenders required for the introduction of a full kerbside recycling service for
Kalgoorlie-Boulder, whereby every residential property is serviced monthly.

Tender documents are currently being prepared for:-
      Monthly Kerbside Recycling Service.
      Supply of 240 litre Mobile Garbage Bins.
      Distribution of 240 litre Mobile Garbage Bins.

Due to the nature and size of the Kerbside Recycling Contract, it is anticipated that a
three month lead time will be required to ensure that everything is in place to begin
the service. Therefore, it will be necessary to have the Contract let by the start of

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The purpose of this item is to seek Council‘s approval to proceed with the purchase
of a portion of Lot 1605 (67) President Street, which currently forms part of the City‘s
drainage system. If the purchase is approved, it is proposed to amalgamate the
portion of Lot 1605 into the adjoining drainage reserve which is vested in the City of
Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

BACKGROUND
Approximately 67m2 of Lot 1605 (67) President Street, Kalgoorlie, is an open drain
forming part of the City‘s stormwater drainage system. The area is fenced off from the
rest of the property. The lot adjacent to 67 President St contains the continuation of
the open drain and is a reserve vested in the City for Drainage purposes. There is no
record of any agreement with the owners at the time when the drain was built for the
use of their property. However, while the open drain has been formed and modified
over the years, it is still in the general area that the natural water course would follow
during storm events.

Council at its ordinary Meeting on 27/02/2006 resolved the following:-

       ―THAT COUNCIL SEEK A VALUATION OF THE PORTION OF 67
       PRESIDENT STREET, WHICH CURRENTLY FORMS PART OF THE CITY‘S
       DRAINAGE SYSTEM, AS SHOWN ON THE ATTACHED DIAGRAM.‖

Market value of the land was estimated to be $4,700 (Four Thousand Seven Hundred
Dollars) by Kalgoorlie City Valuers on 14 March 2006.

Current owners have agreed verbally to sell the land at this price.

COMMENT
If Council agree to proceed with the purchase, the City will need to engage a licensed
surveyor to prepare and submit a subdivision application with the WAPC to excise a
portion of land from Lot 1605 and amalgamate with adjoining Lot 1606. The surveyor
would also carry out a field survey to mark the new boundary, prepare Deposited
Plan and request clearances from the relevant service authorities prior to submission
to the WAPC for final endorsement. After the Strata Plan is placed by the surveyor ―In

order for Dealings‖, the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will then need to make appropriate
arrangements for the final transfer of the land.

STATUTORY IMPLICATIONS
There are no statutory implications resulting from the recommendations of this report.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS
There are no policy implications resulting from the recommendations of this report.

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS
The overall estimated cost to purchase part of Lot 1605 and amalgamate with
adjoining Lot 1606 would be in the order of $8,000, which would be charged to COA
75602 (Drainage maintenance).
