Cr. Bartels declared a confilct of interest or perceived conflict of interest in the following item due to him owning an accommodation facility in Roma and left the chambers at 9.30am.

 

Item Number:                                   15.1

File Number: D11/35989

Subject Heading:                          Preliminary Approval for MCU - Undefined Use          and Preliminary Approval under s.242 of SPA    (File No.: 17755)

Location:                                          44564 Warrego Highway, Roma Qld 4455 (Lot 53 on           SP217817)

Applicant:                                         Consolidated Properties Pty Ltd C/- McArthur Planning &    Development Pty Ltd

Author and Officer’s Title:                Robert Hayward, Director Planning & Environment

 

Executive Summary:  This application seeks Preliminary Approval to carry out a Material Change of Use – Undefined Use (Workers’ Camp – 848 rooming units) and Motel (82 rooms) and Preliminary Approval: varying the effect of the Local Planning Instrument under section 242 of SPA, on land fronting the Warrego Highway (east of but not fronting Roslyn Drive), Roma Qld 4455 and described as Lot 53 on SP217817. 

 

The site was issued with a Negotiated Decision Notice to approve a subdivision for the purposes of an industrial estate on 14 October 2008.  This current application seeks to vary the planning scheme to allow certain uses within the confines of the approved industrial estate.

 

The proposal seeks to vary the Roma Town Planning Scheme by changing the level of assessment of an ‘Undefined Use – Workers’ Camp’ and ‘Motel’ to Code Assessment in the Urban Area on the abovementioned site.  It is proposed that future development in this area be assessed against the ‘Roma One Estate Workers Camp Code’ rather than the Urban Area Code. The ‘Roma One Estate Workers Camp Code’ was provided as part of this development application and contains specific Performance Criteria and Acceptable Solutions for a temporary Workers’ Camp to allow future development to be adequately assessed under the Code Assessable provisions. For clarity, subsequent applications for these uses will not require statutory advertising.

 

Purpose of a section 242 approval

The issuing of a preliminary approval under section 242 of SPA will require further applications from the applicant to achieve a development permit.  An approval under section 242 of SPA is an approval of the concept while further applications for a development permit deal with the detail of the development being sought.  As a result the conditions attached to this approval are general in nature, as subsequent conditions cannot be in conflict with conditions under this approval.  Some conditions seek to have further applications respond to certain issues when the application is lodged for a development permit.  As the concept has been advertised, the application before Council seeks to have subsequent applications dealt with as code assessable to reduce later assessment times.

 

The proposed code is comprised of the whole urban area code that are relevant to the two uses in addition to a number changes shown in red in Appendix 4.  A condition has been included which states that any policy position on workers camp in place at the time of lodgement of further applications will also be used for assessment.  This will ensure appropriate assessment of the worker’s camp component.  The motel component will receive a level of scrutiny above that received by other motel applications in Roma due to the amendment to the code.

 

Resolution No. GM.009.12

Moved Cr Price                                                             Seconded Cr Watson  

That Council approves the application for a Preliminary Approval for Material Change of Use – Undefined Use (Workers’ Camp – 848 rooming units) and Motel (82 rooms) and Preliminary Approval varying the effect of the Local Planning Instrument under section 242 of SPA, at 44564 Warrego Highway, Roma QLD 4455, subject to the following conditions:
