May 2018. The Minutes of the meeting are ENCLOSED, refer ENCLOSURE 1.
A draft copy of the meeting Minutes were distributed to the Group members for their

An update was provided regarding the maintenance and replanting of the trees in King
George V Avenue Oak trees. The Group were informed that the twenty 100L English Oak
(Quercus robur) trees, planted in July 2017, had been watered and mulched throughout the
summer and autumn period and were doing well.
Tree Procurement and Replacement Process for 2018:
The Strategic Planning Manager provided an update on the next steps in the replacement
process for 2018. The Group were informed that Council had pre-ordered 60 English Oak
trees, similar in size to those planted last year, for planting in in 2018. The Group discussed
the proposed locations for planting.
The Group identified that a diagram of suggested locations for tree planting should be
distributed for review prior to the next KGVAWG meeting.
Condition Assessment of Trees in the Former Crown Road Reserve Adjoining KGVA:
The Manager Strategic      Planning detailed the outcome of the condition assessment of the
trees in the secondary     avenue/road reserve. Comments were sought from KGVAWG in
relation to this report.    However, due to the insufficient number of community members
present at the meeting     it was agreed to defer the discussion until the all Group members
were available.
Proposed Historical Signage in King George V Avenue:
A Working Group member identified that historical signage was used to promote the Grower
Markets in the Park at the start of King George V Avenue and suggested signage should be
established on a permanent basis. The Group discussed this suggestion and it was agreed
that there would need to be extensive consultation with a range of stakeholders as part of
this proposal.
Irrigation for King George V Avenue English Oak Trees:
A Working Group member requested that irrigation options for the Oak trees be discussed. It
was confirmed that the Horticulture and Arboriculture Specialist from Council’s Sports and

RECOMMENDATION
That in relation to the report “Amendment to the Tamworth Regional Local
Environmental Plan 2010 – Planning Proposal for Oaklands Estate, Lot 18 DP 1199163
Oaklands Drive, Nemingha”, Council determine not to make the plan in accordance
with section 3.36(2)(b) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
SUMMARY
It is recommended that Council does not make the plan relating to the proposed amendment
to the Tamworth Regional Local Environmental Plan 2010, to reduce the minimum lot size of
Lot 18 DP 1199163 Oaklands Drive, Nemingha in accordance with clause 3.36 of the
Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
This report outlines the justification for the recommendation, and details the outcome of the
community consultation process.
COMMENTARY
Site Description
The subject site is zoned part R5 – Large Lot Residential, part RU1 – Primary Production
and part E3 Environmental Management pursuant to the Tamworth Regional Local
Environmental Plan 2010 (TRLEP 2010). The aim of the Planning Proposal is to reduce the
minimum lot size (MLS) for 38.9 hectares of land within the R5 zone from 2 hectares (Z) to 1
hectare (Y). The land is located in the southern portion of Lot 18 DP 1199163, adjoining the
lots that were created in earlier stages.
The proposed MLS and zone map are ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURES 1 and 2.
Background
At the Ordinary Meeting held on 12 December 2017, Council resolved to forward the
Planning Proposal to the Minister of Planning and Environment seeking a Gateway
Determination to facilitate a change to the minimum lot size.
A Gateway Determination was received from the Department of Planning and Environment
on 27 February 2018, which required Council to undertake a community consultation process
pursuant to Section 3.4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (Act) 1979.
Consultation was also required to be undertaken with the NSW Department of Primary
Industries - Water, Office of Environment and Heritage and NSW Rural Fire Service.
Council was granted Delegated Authority by the Minister of Planning and Environment under
Section 3.36 of the Act to amend the TRLEP 2010.

                                                                                   Page 9
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

Justification for Recommendation
The proposal to change the minimum lot size is not supported because it is inconsistent with
Council’s long term planning for this locality. Further, the recommendation is based on the
availability of infrastructure, in particular water, as the Nundle Road water pipeline has limited
capacity.
The current Tamworth Water Strategy has the planned future pressure in the Nundle Road
pipeline capped at its present level, and this limits the total number of connections available
from that pipeline. Reducing the minimum lot size of properties which would connect to the
Nundle Road pipeline will result in an increase in the number of properties which would need
to connect to the pipeline. Given the limitations on pressure and flow in the Nundle Road
pipeline, an increase in the number of possible water connections cannot be accommodated
by the Water Supply System. Therefore, any increase to the number of lots would
compromise the existing water supply.
Investigations relating to the servicing of lands with smaller minimum lot sizes other than
those currently prescribed by the TRLEP 2010, along the Nundle Road, have been
undertaken in the past by Council officers. The results have concluded that that the locality
is not suitable to cater for the intensification of development due to environmental and
infrastructure constraints.
For this reason, Council has not identified this location in any future infrastructure or
development strategies for the lands located along the Nundle Road. Nor has the subject
site been identified for smaller lot residential development within the New England North
West Regional Plan 2036. On this basis, it is recommended that Council not make the plan.
Public Exhibition and Community Consultation
On the 18 November 2016, (prior to the exhibition period), the applicant Mitchel Hanlon
Consulting Pty Ltd conducted an informal meeting at Oaklands Estate with residents. A
number of issues were raised by the residents and subsequently addressed in the
documentation prepared to accompany the Planning Proposal.
Community consultation was also undertaken by Council pursuant to Section 3.34 of the Act,
with a 28 day exhibition period from 18 June to 16 July 2018.
During the public exhibition period, copies of the Planning Proposal and associated
attachments were available on Council’s website. Displays containing the information were
placed in Council’s Customer Services Centre at Ray Walsh House in Tamworth. The
Planning Proposal was also advertised in the Northern Daily Leader and placed on social
media sites. Adjoining neighbours and those within the immediate vicinity of the subject site
were also notified.
Public Authority Feedback
Council sought and obtained feedback from the public authorities as instructed by the
Department of Planning and Environment as a requirement of the Gateway Determination. A
copy of the agency submissions are ENCLOSED, refer CONFIDENTIAL ENCLOSURE 1.
No public authority raised any objection to the proposed lot size change.
Submissions from Community Members
Council received 12 submissions and one petition with 18 signatures in response to the
proposal. The petition was also attached to five of the submissions received. A copy of the
submissions are ENCLOSED, refer CONFIDENTIAL ENCLOSURE 2, and a comprehensive

                                                                                     Page 10
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

summary of the issues from submissions raised during the community consultation process
and public exhibition period are ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURE 3.
A list of the key issues raised, including commentary from Council staff is included below:
Water Infrastructure: The potential for impact on the existing trickle feed water supply
infrastructure should a decrease in lot size and increase in lot yield occur.
Response: As discussed previously in this report, the current Tamworth Water Strategy has
the planned future pressure in the Nundle Road pipeline capped at its present level, and this
limits the total number of connections available from that pipeline.
Stormwater Drainage: The potential for increased runoff from the catchment throughout the
Estate resulting from increase in allotment density and potential impact on existing drainage
infrastructure.
Response: The proposed Oakland Estate Stage 3 would require a stormwater strategy,
together with the previous drainage calculations for Stages 1 and 2 if the Planning Proposal
were to progress and a development application lodged. It should be noted that the proposal
for Stage 3 crosses a major natural drainage channel. In order to direct the upslope overland
flows through the proposed Stage 3, a number of lots would be compromised.
The culvert that would be required to convey overland flows under the extension of Oakland
Drive would be significant due to the upslope catchment area. A portion of the upslope flows
would need to be concentrated to manage the flows through proposed lots and require
channels through properties.
Traffic Management: The potential for an increase in traffic volumes and generation of noise
as a result of the decrease in minimum lot size, adding to existing traffic numbers within the
area and impacting upon safety of local pedestrians.
Response: It is estimated that Stage 3 of the subdivision would comprise up to 28 residential
allotments. The previous approval for Stage 3 of the development (DA0193/2010) provided
for 17 lots.
The consent for Stages 1 and 2 of the development included approval for 23 rural residential
allotments, of which only 17 were constructed. The revised proposal for Stage 3
incorporates an area previously encompassing six lots. This proposal results in an increase
of five lots over that previously assessed and approved.
New England North West Regional Plan 2036: There is support for the fact that new housing
is required to meet population growth. It is considered however, that future development will
cause an increased demand for services.
Response: The New England North West Plan 2036, provides a framework for future
development within this region by managing emerging opportunities and supporting growth
and change by guiding land use planning priorities, including infrastructure decisions.
Oaklands Estate area has not been identified as one of Tamworth’s Growth Precincts to
support future long term residential development.
Residual Conservation Area: Minimal details have been provided regarding the protection and
management of the residual environmental lands. The lands on the eastern boundary of the
Oaklands Estate is utilised for cattle breeding purposes.
Response: The site is constrained by vegetation to the north and the introduction and
application of environmental legislation by both the State and Federal Governments. It is
proposed that the residual lands would be managed by the existing property owners to
accommodate any legislative requirements.

                                                                                   Page 11
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

Residential Intensification: The visual impact created as a consequence of increased density
will compromise amenity, and privacy due to the aspect and siting of the proposed residential
development throughout the Estate.
Response: The potential lot yield will be restricted by the gradient of the land to elongated
lots, which will likely require restrictive building envelopes if the Planning Proposal
progressed and subsequent development consent was granted. This intensification will
impact primarily upon Lots 6 and 7 DP 1191724. A riparian buffer zone is proposed to be
established along the fourth order stream to minimise visual and privacy impacts upon those
particular lands.
Community Consultation: The community consultation process was insufficient in relation to
the meeting with Mitchel Hanlon Consulting on site at Oaklands Estate in 2016 and letter box
drop advising of the exhibition of the Planning Proposal in June 2018.
Response: The applicant has advised that a meeting was held in 2016, to discuss the
Planning Proposal prior to lodgement within Council in 2017. The Planning Proposal was
placed on public exhibition for a period of 28 days in accordance with the Gateway
Determination. Residents were notified by letterbox drop to ensure correspondence relating
to the proposal was received without delay.
CONCLUSION
Having regard to the limitations associated with the water supply, long term planning
objectives, environmental constraints and content of the public submissions, Council staff
have formed the view that the Planning Proposal should not be supported and the plan
should not be made. Therefore, it is recommended that Council resolve not to make the plan
in relation to the amendment to the TRLEP 2010, to change the MLS from two hectares to
one hectare lots.
(a)   Policy Implications
      Nil
(b)   Financial Implications
      Nil
(c)   Legal Implications
      The TRLEP 2010, will not change should the recommendation be supported and the
      proposal does not proceed. Further, there is no opportunity for the applicant to seek a
      review of Council’s decision.
(d)   Community Consultation
      Community consultation was undertaken through public exhibition of the proposal for
      28 days as required by the Gateway Determination.

RECOMMENDATION
That in relation to the report “Proposed Appointment as Crown Land Manager, Brady
Park, Manilla”, Council:
(i)    consent to Tamworth Regional Council being appointed as Crown Land Manager
       for the Crown Reserve in Manilla, known as Brady Park, described as
       7018//94142, and Lots 1 to 9, Section 38, DP758644, previously occupied by the
       Manilla District Cricket Association Incorporated, managed by the Brady Park
       Trust (R76443); and
(ii)   authorise the General Manager to write to the NSW Minister for Primary
       Industries consenting to the appointment.
SUMMARY
This report recommends that Council authorise the General Manager to write to the Minister
with responsibility for the Crown Lands portfolio (being the NSW Minister for Primary
Industries), consenting to the appointment of Tamworth Regional Council as Crown Land
Manager for the Crown Reserve known as Brady Park, Manilla.
COMMENTARY
Council has received written correspondence from the Department of Industry, Lands and
Forestry notifying that the last members of the Brady Park Trust (R76443) resigned in 2017,
and that the reserve is no longer used by the Manilla District Cricket Association
Incorporated, who have moved their games to the larger Chaffey Park.
Council is currently maintaining Brady Park as community open space within the existing
Sports and Recreation operational budget. While Council is currently focussing any
immediate sports field development in Manilla at the Chaffey Park complex, Brady Park is
still a valuable recreational facility for residents of South Manilla and potential future sports
field once the utilisation of Chaffey Park becomes too congested.
The Department of Industry, Lands and Forestry are investigating options for the
management of the reserve known as Brady Park, described as 7018//94142, and Lots 1 to
9, Section 38, DP758644, and have enquired into TRC’s interest in being formally appointed
as Trust Manager.
A map is ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURE 1.
Given that Council have been maintaining Brady Park, it is considered reasonable that
Council be given consent to the appointment as Crown Land Manager.
It is recommended that Council authorise the General Manager to write to the NSW Minister
for Primary Industries, consenting to the appointment of Council as Crown Land Manager.

                                                                                     Page 13

ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURE 1.
96/2018 - Median Construction Plans – Marius Street East Approach to Roundabout
Peel/Marius Intersection

                                                                                    Page 14
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

The Committee reviewed design plans for a 40 metre long median extending past the entry
to Northgate Shopping Centre on Marius Street as part of the Peel Street and Marius Street
Roundabout.
If the median was to be installed, entry and exit to Northgate Shopping Centre would be of a
‘left in left out’ nature on Marius Street. Line marking has been installed in its place at present
and traffic movements will be monitored to assess the necessity of the concrete median to
manage traffic flow.
The design plans are ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURE 2.
COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: the Committee support the installation of a median in
Marius Street, on the eastern approach to the roundabout at the Peel Street and Marius
Street intersection, if required to improve traffic management.
97/2018 - 2018 Summer Criterion Racing – Tamworth Cycle Club
Tamworth Cycle Club proposes to hold a summer criterion racing series, held each Sunday
between 6:30am and 1:00pm, between 14 October 2018 and 7 April 2019.
Road closures are proposed on Armstrong Street and Pondarosa Road, with an adjusted
centre line on Goddard Lane to allow two-way traffic on Goddard Lane, with the parking lane
closed for the race course.
Event Setup: 6:30am                  Event Start:     8:00am
Event Finish: 12:00pm                Event Pack up: 1:00pm
Traffic Control will be used to control entry points to the course on Goddard Lane and
marshalls will be used on intersections of Armstrong Street and Pondarosa Road, Goddard
Lane and Pondarosa Road, and Pondarosa Road near BMR Quarries entry.
The proposed Traffic Control Plan is ATTACHED, refer ANNEXURE 3.
COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: the Committee support the road closures for the
Summer Criterion Racing events, each Sunday between 6:30am and 1:00pm from 14
October 2018 to 7 April 2019, on Armstrong Street and Pondarosa Road, Westdale.
98/2018 - Review of Give Way treatments Upper Street and Murray Street Intersection
A resident requested review of Give Way sign treatments at the Upper Street and Murray
Street intersection has been undertaken.
Findings from the inspection was that due to trees and hedges on the road reserve and
inside properties on Murray Street, as well as the grade of Murray Street, site distance for a
Give Way sign on the north western approach of Upper Street does not satisfy the 97m
distance along the through road from 3-5m back from the Give Way hold line for a Give Way
sign.
The north western approach was satisfied from the centre island. The south eastern
approach site distance was satisfied from both Upper Street and from the centre island.
Site distance measurements and proposed treatment to satisfy site distances is ATTACHED,
refer ANNEXURE 4.
COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: the Committee support the installation of two STOP
signs either side of the intersection of Upper Street at the intersection of Murray Street.

                                                                                      Page 15

8.3    WASTE SUSTAINABILITY SIX MONTHLY REPORT – FILE NO SF8151
DIRECTORATE:               WATER AND WASTE
AUTHOR:                    Angela Dodson, Sustainability Officer
RECOMMENDATION
That in relation to the report “Waste Sustainability Six Monthly Report”, Council
receive and note the waste sustainability projects and activities listed in the report.

SUMMARY
The purpose of this report is to update Council on Waste Sustainability activities presently
underway, as well as projects planning to be implemented over the next six months.
COMMENTARY
Council continues to provide educational opportunities conveying general waste
management, recycling specific, upcycling ideas and litter prevention education through
school visits, landfill tours, guest speaking at community group meeting opportunities, direct
telephone calls or educational workshops and events. The following is a summary of some
of the previous six month period of activities and statistics.
With the installation of the new water refill station and bubblers in Peel Street and in
Bicentennial Park, it would appear that residents and visitors alike have welcomed the
availability of these units with an accumulated consumption of 3,710 litres which is the
equivalent of approximately 6,183 single use 600ml plastic water bottles saved from being
consumed and potentially ending up as litter or in landfill. To mitigate some of the summer
and winter temperature extremes in our region, the units had their internal pipe work lagged.
In April, Council resolved to install additional water refill and bubbler units in Barraba,
Manilla, Kootingal and Nundle. In May, the Barraba, Manilla and Kootingal units were
installed and are now in use by the local community. The Nundle unit will be installed in
conjunction with an upcoming upgrade of the public amenities in Jenkins Street, opposite the
pool.

                                                                                   Page 16
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

During this reporting period, there has been 11 in school educational visits undertaken and
three landfill tours of the Forest Road Waste Management Centre.
Troy Cassar-Daley continues to be the Tune in to recycling campaign ambassador for the
Country Music Festival recycling campaign, encouraging festival goers and locals alike to
make sustainable choices through recycling. This year the Riverside Campgrounds, saw the
introduction of the yellow reusable bags with information on what can be recycled in the bins
in the campgrounds and waterwise messages encouraging efficient water use in line with the
drought management messages for local residents. The yellow bags were well received and
were actively being used during observations in the campgrounds. Troy Cassar-Daley will
continue as campaign ambassador for the 2019 Country Music Festival.
Clean up Australia Day on Sunday, 4 March 2018, saw a total of 1.56 tonnes of material
collected during the clean up period. This was just under half a tonne less material than
collected the previous year. There was one truck tyre and 13 trolleys recovered from various
sections of river cleaned by community volunteers.
While there was a large contingent of volunteers and participants down at the OzFish site at
Jewry Street who had ABC’s Costa making an appearance, the largest volume of bags and
material collected on the day, was by the Lions Club of Tamworth who cleaned up from the
Robert Street Roundabout to Mahoney Avenue. There were 15 school groups, one business
with multiple sites and 20 community teams registered to participate.

                                                                                  Page 17
Tamworth Regional Council – Ordinary Council – 28 August 2018

In March, Tamworth Regional Council Sustainability Unit sponsored the Sustainable North
West Amazing Enviro Race. The event this year was an engagement activity with high
schools within the Tamworth Regional Council area, 105 students attended and participated
in 13 Sustainability themed activities. Council facilitated three activities around water, waste
and energy. Student and teacher feedback on the day was positive and there were strong
support for the event to be held again next year. Schools from outside the Council area have
also enquired if they could be a part of the event next year. Council sponsorship of the event
will continue in 2019, before being reassessed. The overall winner of the day was McCarthy
Catholic College and received a prize of a fully installed solar array for their school.

In partnership with Tamworth Regional Gallery, the Sustainability Unit sponsored over the
two weekends in the April school holidays, 11 free community workshops during this
reporting period with 107 attendees. One workshop stream was designed to complement the
Playschool installation in the Gallery at the time and the other workshop stream was aimed at
those children who have a love of technology and combine this with making animation props
out of reusable materials to create their master piece. These workshops will be offered again
during the Gallery’s Sunday Funday Program schedule of the September school holidays,
however will be tailored to complement the Treehouse exhibition in the Gallery at the time
and the animation workshop will aim to create a sustainable narrative piece.

Sustainability initiatives at the Tamworth Sports Dome saw the installation of recycling bins to
create waste stations at the facility to help divert beverage containers from ending up in
landfill. Utilisation of the bins has been positive and welcomed by sports participants.

In May 2018, Council resolved to implement the trial waste voucher system for role out with
the rates notices in July 2018, as a potential replacement for bulky household waste services
in the future. The voucher trial will run in parallel with the bulky household waste collection
services in November 2018 and June 2019. A report to Council on the trial will be presented
in August 2019.
At the end of May, Council resolved to install 24 recycling bins to create recycling stations
through out the CBD precinct. The bins will match the existing general waste bins and have
a recycling chute in the front. Discussions have also occurred with the Tamworth Access
Group regarding how to help identify the difference between the bins for the vision impaired.
The bins will be installed in September 2019.
Future programs and activities occurring in the next reporting period will include the
implementation of new bin infrastructure as part of a specific grant received through the NSW
EPA for road side rest areas, the development of new revitalised educational materials for

                                                                                    Page 19

residents around waste management, the National Garage Sale Trail on the weekend of 20
and 21 October 2018, and National Recycling Week is in November 2018. A number of
schools have booked in to receive educational sessions and tours of the landfill facility in
Tamworth and seeking advice on how to improve their waste management within their
school. This will work in with the recent Council resolution to further assist Challenge
Recycling through the donation of excess event recycling bins to improve their schools
recycling program.
Staff are continually looking at the various waste streams being managed at Council landfills
and suitable alternatives to be able to remove items from landfill. One such problem waste
stream is mattresses. A review identified that the options to undertake resource recovery
activities related to mattresses was not a viable option for Tamworth Regional Council to
undertake on its own. Through the Northern Inland Regional Waste Group (NIRW), which
covers 12 Regional Councils in the New England and North West regions of NSW, a wider
review was undertaken and identified that further regional collaboration was needed with
another regional waste group to make resource recovery activities viable for service
providers. Netwaste Regional Waste Group, which covers the central and western regions of
NSW or 40% of the state and includes 26 regional Councils (including Councils like Bathurst,
Blue Mountains, Broken Hill, Dubbo, Orange and Warrumbungle to name a few) is the other
regional waste group.
An expression of interest was released to seek submissions from suitable service providers.
The Netwaste Regional Waste Group has taken point in managing the regional collaboration
as they have the resources and experience in regional contracting. There were two
submissions received through the expression of interest phase but only one was a suitable
service provider.
The request for tender was provided to the suitable service provider and the tender process
closed on Monday, 6 August 2018. Evaluation and clarification processes are now underway
and is scheduled to take up to four to six weeks. Once this has been completed, a report will
be provided to participating Councils seeking direction from Council about participating or
not, and if so relevant contractual documents will be executed by each Council with the
service provider on an individual Council basis.
