Executive Summary: 

The current affordable housing shortage in Roma makes employee attraction and retention difficult for all local businesses not the least of which is Council, which owns only two houses in Roma.  Anecdotal evidence provides that if dwellings were available in Roma accommodations for some seventy employees would be secured by the Public sector alone. 

 

Due to the high cost of rental accommodations people are leaving Roma at an alarming rate and to make housing options more available more affordable housing is required immediately.

Body of Report:

In accordance with the adopted Regional Sport and Recreation Strategy, Council’s Community and Local Plans and Council’s direction on the three sporting precincts, extensive discussions have been held with the Wallumbilla community groups regarding overall site planning, shared use of facilities and consolidation of sporting fields. 

 

Engagement has consisted of numerous meetings over the past 12 months with members of the Wallumbilla Showgrounds User Groups, key Council staff and interested residents. Ongoing community consultation with all users of the area has resulted in major planning surrounding proposed upgrades to essential utilities (water, electricity and sewerage) and improvements to overall site design, considering safety and maintenance issues.

Name of Applicant:                         Queensland Music Festival

Location:                                          

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Jacqueline Burns, Regional Arts & Culture Coordinator

 

 

Executive Summary: 

Representatives of the Queensland Music Festival recently outlined a proposal to a Council workshop regarding their plans for the event in July 2013 in Roma.  The Queensland Music Festival seeks Council’s support of their proposal.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

That Council provide in-principle support for the 2013 Queensland Music Festival proposal and consider the extent of any financial and/or in-kind contribution to the project during its 2012/13 budget deliberations and after project budget details are provided by Queensland Music Festival.

 

 

Body of Report:

Queensland Music Festival (QMF) is a biennial state-wide celebration of music with a national and international reputation undertaken across many communities in metropolitan, regional and rural communities.

 

QMF provides opportunities for local musicians to develop their capacity through a range of educational and performance activities in the months leading up to a culminating major event.

 

Representatives of QMF presented their concept for the 2013 events at a recent Council workshop.  The project incorporates an original concept for a culminating concert event in Roma quite possibly in late July 2013.  A major Australian musician forms part of the planning for this event in Roma.

 

QMF are in the process of securing support from other major rural centres in the south/central west of the state.  At this time a budget for the events has not been finalised by QMF.

Location:                                           Muckadilla State School, Lot 32 on N25273

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

 

Executive Summary: 

Education Queensland has instructed the Department of Environment and Resource Management to dispose of Lot 32 on N25273, being the Muckadilla State School site.  This site is no longer being used as a school and the Department of Environment and Resource Management is seeking Council’s views on this matter.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

1.   That Maranoa Regional Council offers no objection to the disposal of the disused Muckadilla State School site being Lot 32 on N25273;

2.   That Council’s preferred option for opening a road is option 1, a road to be opened along the frontage of the Muckadilla School allotment.

 

 

Body of Report:

The Muckadilla State School has been closed for a number of years and Education Queensland has made the decision that the site is surplus to requirements.  Education Queensland has instructed the Department of Environment and Resource Management to dispose of the site being Lot 32 on N25273. 

 

The Department of Environment and Resource Management has written to Council seeking Council’s views and / or requirements on this matter. 

 

The Department has also identified that Muckadilla State School is without any gazetted access and the property will be unable to be sold without access to the site.  It is proposed to open an area of road in the same location where the current formed road is.  The Department has provided three options for the new road, and Council is asked to provide advice on its preferred option.

 

It is recommended that Council accept proposal one which will open a road along the front of the school land.

 

Consultation (internal/external):

Subject Heading:                     Lease of Euthulla Reserve

Classification:                                  Open Access  

Name of Applicant:                         Roma and District Bowmen Inc.

Location:                                           Lot A on CPWV835101 on Carnarvon Highway near Roma

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

 

Executive Summary: 

The Roma and District Bowmen Incorporated are seeking a trustee lease over Lot A on Crown Plan WV835101.  This land is known as the Euthulla Reserve and has been used since 1999 by the group under a shared arrangement with the Roma Scout Group.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

Council enter into a trustee lease with the Roma and District Bowmen Incorporated over Lot A on Crown Plan WV835101 with Council to incur all costs associated with drafting of legal documents and lodgement costs.

 

 

Body of Report:

The Roma Scout Group have advised that they have relinquished the special lease  held over Lot A on CP WV835101 being the Euthulla Reserve on the Roma to Injune Road when the lease became due for renewal on 31 March 2012.

 

In 1999, the Scout Association of Australia Queensland Branch Inc. (on behalf of the Roma Scout Group) entered into an agreement with the Australian Bowhunters Association Inc. (on behalf of the Roma and District Bowmen Inc.) to allow for a shared use arrangement over the land. 

 

This shared arrangement has been successful, with the Roma and District Bowmen using the property on an average weekly basis from February to November each year for archery. 

 

The Roma Scout Group’s decision to not renew its lease with the Department Environment and Resource Management has left the Roma and District Bowmen without any formal arrangement in regard to the land and the group has expressed interest in entering a trustee lease arrangement with Council.

 

Advice has been sought from the Department of Environment and Resource Management Roma Office who have advised that the Roma and District Bowmen have two options being:-

(a) Applying to the Department of Environment and Resource Management for a new lease over the land; or

(b) Obtaining a trustee lease through Council.  This is the Department’s preferred option.

 

The Roma and District Bowmen have advised that during their use of the land over the past 13 years, they have abided with the conditions of the special lease and maintained affiliation with the Australian Bowhunters Association Inc which has provided the group with the appropriate public liability insurance to conduct bowhunting activities on the property.  The group has also indicated that if successful in securing a trustee lease, they will take responsibility for any improvements that the Scout Group have completed on the land.

Stephen Brown, President Roma and District Bowmen Inc.

John Barford, Roma Scout Group

Bryan Brown, Property and Insurance Officer Scouts Queensland Branch

Janine York, Land Officer Department of Environment and Resource Management

Fiona Vincent, Coordinator Sport and Recreation

Risk Assessment (Legal, Financial, Political etc.):

A trustee lease will assist in managing Council’s risk.  The agreement will detail the responsibilities of both parties being Council and the Roma and District Bowmen Inc.

Policy Implications:

Council has entered into trustee lease arrangements with other community organisations.

Financial Resource Implications:

Administration and legal costs.

Item Number: 12.4

File Number: D12/14042

 

Subject Heading:                     Renewal of Lease - Maranoa Kindergarten

Classification:                                  Open Access  

Name of Applicant:                         Maranoa Kindergarten Association Inc

Location:                                           Lot 13 on CP R8613 - 49 Bungil Street Roma

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

Executive Summary: 

The Maranoa Kindergarten Association had a three year lease with Council for Lot 13 on R8613.  These land and buildings are located at 49 Bungil Street Roma and house the Maranoa Kindergarten facility.  The Maranoa Kindergarten Association has expressed interest in renewing their lease with Council.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

Council to commence negotiations with the Maranoa Kindergarten Association with the view to renewing the lease on Lot 13 on R8613 for a further 3 years, with a monthly rental payment to be negotiated to contribute towards maintenance and ongoing upgrade works at the facility and furthermore that the draft negotiated lease conditions be tabled at Council meeting for decision.

 

 

Body of Report:

Council entered a three year lease with the Maranoa Kindergarten Association in 2007.  The lease is for land and buildings located at 49 Bungil Street Roma.  The facilities are used for the provision of childcare and kindergarten services to the community.  

 

Under the terms of the lease, the Maranoa Kindergarten Association is responsible for excess water charges, public liability and contents insurance, electricity, maintenance, cleaning and gardens.  Council as the lessor is responsible for rates, water charges and building insurance.  As the landlord Council is also responsible for any works required to the land and buildings outside of the scope of general maintenance.  The lease provides for the Maranoa Kindergarten Association to pay rent of $1.00 per annum plus GST if demanded by Council as the lessor.

 

The Maranoa Kindergarten Association has developed a five year plan for the facility which was adopted by the organisation in November 2011.  A copy of the plan is attached. 

 

Expenditure on the Maranoa Kindergarten building and grounds by Council in the 2011/2012 year to date has totalled $6,033.74 which has included rates, sealing of the outdoor concrete area (which was identified as a safety risk) and asbestos inspections.  There are identified safety and maintenance issues at the facility which need to be addressed by Council in the 2012/2013 year including drainage, replacement of an asbestos sheeted wall that adjoins the children’s outdoor play area and has experienced damage on occasion, replacement of floor coverings and installation of a new kitchen. 

Consultation (internal/external):

Joanne Boland, Past President Maranoa Kindergarten Association

Risk Assessment (Legal, Financial, Political etc.):

If Council continues to lease the premises to the Maranoa Kindergarten, funds will need to be allocated in upcoming budgets to undertake necessary upgrade works to bring the facility to an appropriate standard and to mitigate Council’s level of risk.  The 5 year plan as developed by the Maranoa Kindergarten Association identifies significant upgrade works required at the facility and required of Council as the landlord.

Policy Implications:

The Maranoa Kindergarten Association is operating a business out of the premises which may set a precedent for future requests for office space.

Financial Resource Implications:

The Maranoa Kindergarten 5 year plan includes the following maintenance and upgrade tasks to be undertaken by Council.

 

2012/2013

Replacement flooring in units - $42,500

Replacement of Kitchen to a standard for students to participate in cooking - $30,000 - $40,000 (estimated).

Potential development of a third unit. 

 

2013/2014

Installation of water purifiers.

Development of Amphitheatre

 

In addition, required upgrade costs to be included in the 2012/2013 budget include attending to asbestos sheeting in buildings and addressing ongoing drainage issues.  Ongoing costs will also need to be accommodated in annual budgets.

 

Link to Corporate Plan:

Subject Heading:                     Acquisition of Native Title Rights for Land Development

Classification:                                  Open Access  

Name of Applicant:                        

Location:                                           Land described as Lot 1 on SP154291, Title Reference 40039606 - Cnr. Surat Tara Road and Thomby Road, Surat

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

 

Executive Summary: 

The purpose of this Report is to seek Council's approval to continue with the compulsory acquisition of native title rights and interests over land described as Lot 1 on SP154291, Title Reference 40039606  - Corner Surat Tara Road and Thomby Road, Surat ("the Land").

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

That Council, having served a Notice of Intention to Acquire Native Title Rights and Interests ("the Notice") over Lot 1 on SP154291, Title Reference 40039606 - Corner Surat Tara Road and Thomby Road, Surat ("the Land"), on the Applicants for the Mandandanji People as the registered claimants;

(a)       Council did not receive any objection to the Notice;

(b)       Council will make an application to the Minister administering the Acquisition of Land Act 1967 that any native title rights and interests in and over the land be acquired for the purpose of acquiring freehold title in the land."

 

Body of Report:

Council resolved on 15 February 2012 to compulsorily acquire any and all native title rights and interests over the Land for the purpose of acquiring the Land in freehold.  Council currently holds a Term Lease 0/219822 over the Land on which Council's weighbridge is situated.

Council served a Notice of Intention to Acquire Native Title Rights and Interests ("Notice") and Background Information Statement upon the Mandandanji People, the registered native title claimants for the Land, and also upon Queensland South Native Title Services, as the Representative body for the area.

The Notice provided that the registered native title claimants could object to the proposed compulsory acquisition of native title rights and interests within the period specified in the Notice and could be heard in support of any objection. 

Next Step: Council's Decision

1.      If Council wishes to proceed with the compulsory acquisition of native title rights and interests it must formally resolve to do so, to satisfy the Department of Natural Resource's (DNR) policy requirements.

2.         In particular Council will need to:

(a)       resolve to proceed with the compulsory acquisition;

(b)       resolve that an application be made to the Minister to approve the compulsory acquisition; and

(c)       instruct Council's solicitors in this matter, MacDonnells Law, to prepare and lodge the necessary application on behalf of Council.

3.      The Minister must assess the application and decide whether to approve it.  Although there are no statutory timeframes, this could take up to four months.

4.      Assuming that the Minister approves the application, the application is referred to the Governor-in-Council to authorise publication of a Gazette Notice. 

5.      DNR arranges for the publication of a Gazette Notice in the Government Gazette.  Upon publication of the Gazette Notice, the acquisition of native title rights and interests will be effective.  This is a formality and should not take more than four weeks.

6.      Upon completion of the acquisition, Council can progress the freeholding of the land with DNR.

This land is the site of the Surat Bulk Grains Centre. To date Council has not been able to enter into a lease with Surat Bulk Grains, due to the fact that the land was still a Reserve and Surat Bulk Grains were seeking to purchase the land directly from Waroo Shire. At the conclusion of this current compulsory acquisition and freehold process it would be appropriate to reassess the long term ownership and governance arrangements for the Centre.

Consultation (internal/external):

Jenny Humphris, McDonnells Law

Matthew McGoldrick, Director Corporate Services

Risk Assessment (Legal, Financial, Political etc.):

Council is following a proven process to address native title which reduces the overall risk of a potential unsuccessful outcome.

Policy Implications:

Council has addressed native title in the past through the compulsory acquisition process.

Financial Resource Implications:

Council will need to meet the costs of the native title acquisition process.

Subject Heading:                     Relocation of Building to Roma History Lodge

Classification:                                  Open Access  

Name of Applicant:                         Roma and District Family History Society Inc

Location:                                           17 McDowall Street Roma

Author & Officer’s Title:                 Tanya Mansfield, Manager Risk and Facilities

 

 

Executive Summary: 

The Roma and District Family History Society Inc are seeking Council’s permission to position a building from the Romavilla Winery onto Council land at 17 McDowall Street Roma. This land is currently used by the Roma and District Family History Society and the group proposes to place the building adjacent to the current Family History Building.  It is recommended that Council provide its in-principle support to the proposal subject to conditions.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation: 

Council provide in-principle support to the Roma and District Family History Society’s proposal to relocate the building from the Romavilla Winery to the land adjacent to the Family History Lodge, 17 McDowall Street Roma subject to all building and planning application requirements being met and approved by Council and all costs associated with the relocation, refurbishment and on-going maintenance of the building being met by the Roma and District Family History Society.

 

 

Body of Report:

The Roma and District Family History Society Inc are seeking permission to relocate the old office building at the Romavilla Winery to the site at 17 McDowall Street Roma currently occupied by the Family History Society.  This land is owned by Maranoa Regional Council.  Photographs of the building and proposed site are attached.

 

The Roma and District Family History Society have already garnered significant community support and commitments of assistance from local business including assistance with removal of the building and drawing up of plans.

 

The Roma and District Family History Society has not sought any financial support from Council for the building relocation and refurbishment works. 

 

Consultation (internal/external):

Robert Hayward, Director Environment and Planning/Acting Chief Executive Officer

Matthew McGoldrick, Director Corporate Services

Neil Heyer, Planning & Development Assessment Officer

Kay Crosby, Manager Environmental Health

Risk Assessment (Legal, Financial, Political etc.):

Requiring the Roma and District Family History Society to address building and planning requirements will assist to manage risk associated with this proposal.

Policy Implications:

While there is no formal policy in place, in the past Council has agreed to allowing community organisations to place buildings of local heritage significance on Council land on the condition that the organisation’s meet all associated and ongoing costs.

Financial Resource Implications:

No financial commitment has been requested from Council at this time. However although the Roma and District Family History Society has indicated that they will accept responsibility for ongoing maintenance of the building, effectively if in the future the Society is not in a position to maintain the building, responsibility will fall to Council as the building is located on Council land.  In addition, the building will need to be covered under Council’s insurance policies.

Dear Tanya

 

 

 

Following on from our telephone conversation this morning 28 May 2012, here are the details regarding the building kindly offered to us by Joy & David Wall, Romavilla Winery.

 

 

 

The Roma History Society currently own buildings (Roma History Lodge) situated on Council land at 17 McDowall Street, Roma. We recently heard that the Romavilla Winery was up for sale so we have approached Joy & David about donating any historic paperwork to our group. After a visit to the winery, Joy & David have indicated that they are willing to donate various large photographs, maps, framed certificates, boxes of wine labels, signs, plans, advertising features, old machinery and equipment, even a wine barrel. We told them we would be very grateful for the donation of these items, but having the space to store and display them would be a problem for us.

 

 

 

Much to our surprise, several hours after our visit, Joy phoned and offered to donate the old office building at the Winery to us for this purpose (see photographs).

 

 

 

We have made many phone calls in the past week, the first to John Chappell – Chappell Removals, who has offered to shift the building for no cost. I’ve spoken to David Schefe, builder, who has been and checked the building over and has offered to have plans drawn up, again for no charge. But, our first step needs to be to obtain Council permission to situate the building beside our current Lodge on Council land.

 

 

 

With Council approval, we hope to move the new/old building as quickly as possible as David & Joy have indicated that if a buyer isn’t found shortly, they will close the Romavilla Winery at the end of June as they wish to retire to Toowoomba. Our plans are to move the building in beside our current Lodge as a standalone structure, to be used to store and display the items donated by the Wall family. We also have many other collections showcasing local business, families, clubs, etc that we could display on a rotating basis in the building.

 

 

 

Council Building & Planning Department have informed us that a $20,000 refundable deposit is required by Council when moving old buildings, along with Council Building fees. We ask that Council please consider waivering these fees, as after paying these costs, it this would leave little in our account. Copies of building plans showing our present buildings and a copy of the Statement of Agreement with the former Roma Town Council have been left with Danielle & Mark, Building & Planning Department. We intend asking for help from the community and other groups e.g. donations of time, skills, building materials, etc to enable us to carry out this project.  

 

 

 

We maintain our current buildings ourselves, with the phone, internet, insurance, electricity and rates being paid by our society. We have up to 65 paying members belonging to our group. The Roma History Lodge is opened to members, visitors and tourist at different times each week and weekend and we are always willing to help anyone with their research into their own family history, the history of Roma or the district. We assist Council employees on a regular basis with research whenever there is a major event being planned for Roma. Our collections and library cover a vast area, not only Roma, but all of the Maranoa district and far beyond.

 

 

 

Our major project, one of many, that we are currently working on is to provide The Western Star with 150 years of written history of Roma for a book which is to be released during the 150 Years of Roma celebrations planned for late August this year. As the Romavilla Winery as only one year younger (149 years) than the town of Roma, it would be a terrible shame if the winery was to close down and all the history associated with it lost!

 

 

 

If you have any questions, please contact me via email or on the phone numbers given below. We hope Council will look favourably on our request.

Development Assessment: Trunk Infrastructure Charges

 

 

Material Change of Use (Accommodation Units) situated at 73 Gregory Street, Roma, Qld – Lot 2 on RP 4440

 

 

Plan Associates

 

 

 

 

 


Executive Summary

 

1.   The Sustainable Planning Act, 2009 requires local governments to prepare Priority Infrastructure Plans (PIP) and adopt and charge for trunk infrastructure in accordance with the Draft State planning regulatory provision (adopted charges).

 

2.   The development of PIPs for the current planning schemes is well advanced and the Council adopted trunk infrastructure charges resolutions towards the end of 2011.

 

3.   An adopted infrastructure charge of $63,000-00 is payable in respect of the proposed development.

 

The adopted infrastructure has been calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in Table 2 of the Council’s adopted infrastructure charges resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for dual occupancy (two attached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 4 X $21,000-00

= $84,000-00

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

The monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

AIC      =          $84,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $63,000-00

4.   A work sheet detailing the methodology used to calculate the charge is in Appendix1.

 

5.   An extract from the Councils resolution to adopt Infrastructure Charges for the Roma Planning Scheme under Division 2.5 of Draft state regulatory provision (adopted charges) is in Appendix2.

6.   A decision notice (compliant with section 648F of the SPA) in respect of the adopted infrastructure charge is in Appendix3.

 


 

Appendix1

 

 

Trunk Infrastructure Charges Worksheet

 

1.   Situational Analysis

 

Step 1: Determine whether the proposed development is located within the Priority Infrastructure Area (PIA).

 

Refer to Map 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The subject property is located within the Roma PIA of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution.

 

Step 2: Determine what infrastructure networks are covered.

 

Refer to the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure attached to the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The Council provides all five infrastructure networks identified in the plans for trunk infrastructure to the proposed development.

 

Step 3: Determine the land use class of the proposed development.

 

Refer to Table 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

Under the Roma planning scheme the proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for dual occupancy.

 

Step 4: Determine whether the proponent may be entitled to a credit.

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

2.   Calculating the Charge

 

The adopted infrastructure charge levied for each trunk infrastructure networks must be calculated in accordance with the following formula-

 

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

Step 5: Determine Demand (the total number of adopted charge units generated by the proposed development).

 

Refer to Table 2 of the resolution and floor plan for the proposed development.

 

An adopted charge of $21,000-00 per dwelling for three or more bedrooms applies.

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential for dual occupancy (four attached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 4 X $21,000-00

= $84,000-00

 

Step 6: Determine Demand Credit (any credits for existing lawful uses in accordance with Section 7 of the Burdekin RICS).

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

Under Table 2 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution the monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

Step 7: Calculate the Adopted Infrastructure Charge.

 

 

AIC      =          $84,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $63,000-00

Appendix2

 

Extract from resolution to adopt Infrastructure Charges for the Roma Planning Scheme under Division 2.5 of Draft state regulatory provision (adopted charges)

 

1. This resolution is attached to the Maranoa Regional Council’s Roma planning scheme.

To remove any doubt, it is declared that the details of the resolution are not part of the local government’s planning scheme.

2.  This resolution has effect on and from the day the making of the resolution was first notified in a newspaper circulating generally in the local government area on 11 November 2011.

3. This resolution adopts a charge for particular development that is less than the maximum adopted charge.

To enable the adopted infrastructure charges schedule identified in Table 1 of the Draft State planning regulatory provision (Draft SPRP) to be applied to existing development use types, Table 1 of this resolution identifies the relationship between existing planning scheme use types and the classes of development to which the adopted infrastructure charges schedule apply.

4. This resolution states how a charge for particular development is to be discounted to take into account the existing usage of trunk infrastructure by the premises on, or in relation to which the development is carried out.

The adopted infrastructure charge is to be calculated as follows:

AIC = AC –CR 

Where:

·     AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

·     AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

·     CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

(i) The credit is the greater of:

·     the monetary equivalent of the existing lawful use of the premises, calculated using the adopted infrastructure charges in Table 2; and

·     the monetary contributions for trunk infrastructure that have been previously made, escalated to present value by applying the movements of the Consumer Price Index (all Groups) for Brisbane between the date that the payment was made and 1 July 2011.

 

(ii)  Applications for development which are not serviced or planned to be serviced by the water supply or sewerage networks for trunk infrastructure will be credited as follows:

 

·     Water supply network:                        30% of total charge

·     Sewerage network:                             20% of total charge

 

(iii) The maximum amount of any credit allocated under this resolution is not to exceed the adopted infrastructure charges for the proposed development.

5.   Until the local government’s priority infrastructure plan is adopted, the resolution —

(i) Identifies trunk infrastructure for the area of the Roma Planning Scheme in Maps 2-6

(ii) Identifies the following trunk infrastructure network or trunk infrastructure networks to which the adopted infrastructure charge applies –– water supply, sewerage, stormwater, transport and parks and community facilities.  

(iii) States the standards of service for each network mentioned in subparagraph (ii) and attached to the resolution.

Adopted Infrastructure Charges Decision Notice

 

 

1.   Amount of the Charge

 

An adopted infrastructure charge of $63,000-00 is payable in respect of the proposed development.

 

The adopted infrastructure has been calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in Table 2 of the Council’s adopted infrastructure charges resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for dual occupancy (four attached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 4 X $21,000-00

= $84,000-00

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

Resolution the monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

AIC      =          $84,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $63,000-00

Executive Summary

 

1.   The Sustainable Planning Act, 2009 requires local governments to prepare Priority Infrastructure Plans (PIP) and adopt and charge for trunk infrastructure in accordance with the Draft State planning regulatory provision (adopted charges).

 

2.   The development of PIPs for the current planning schemes is well advanced and the Council adopted trunk infrastructure charges resolutions towards the end of 2011.

 

3.   An adopted infrastructure charge of $21,000-00 is payable in respect of the proposed development.

 

The adopted infrastructure has been calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in Table 2 of the Council’s adopted infrastructure charges resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for dual occupancy (two attached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 2 X $21,000-00

= $42,000-00

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

The monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

AIC      =          $42,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $21,000-00

5.   An extract from the Councils resolution to adopt Infrastructure Charges for the Roma Planning Scheme under Division 2.5 of Draft state regulatory provision (adopted charges) is in Appendix 2.

6.   A decision notice (compliant with section 648F of the SPA) in respect of the adopted infrastructure charge is in Appendix 3.

 


 

Appendix 1

 

 

Trunk Infrastructure Charges Worksheet

 

1.   Situational Analysis

 

Step 1: Determine whether the proposed development is located within the Priority Infrastructure Area (PIA).

 

Refer to Map 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The subject property is located within the Roma PIA of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution.

 

Step 2: Determine what infrastructure networks are covered.

 

Refer to the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure attached to the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The Council provides all five infrastructure networks identified in the plans for trunk infrastructure to the proposed development.

 

Step 3: Determine the land use class of the proposed development.

 

Refer to Table 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

Under the Roma planning scheme the proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for dual occupancy.

 

Step 4: Determine whether the proponent may be entitled to a credit.

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

2.   Calculating the Charge

 

The adopted infrastructure charge levied for each trunk infrastructure networks must be calculated in accordance with the following formula-

 

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

Step 5: Determine Demand (the total number of adopted charge units generated by the proposed development).

 

Refer to Table 2 of the resolution and floor plan for the proposed development.

 

An adopted charge of $21,000-00 per dwelling for three or more bedrooms applies.

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential for dual occupancy (two attached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 2 X $21,000-00

= $42,000-00

 

Step 6: Determine Demand Credit (any credits for existing lawful uses in accordance with Section 7 of the Burdekin RICS).

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

Under Table 2 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution the monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

Step 7: Calculate the Adopted Infrastructure Charge.

 

 

AIC      =          $42,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $21,000-00

4. This resolution states how a charge for particular development is to be discounted to take into account the existing usage of trunk infrastructure by the premises on, or in relation to which the development is carried out.

The adopted infrastructure charge is to be calculated as follows:

AIC = AC –CR 

Where:

·     AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

·     AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

·     CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

(i) The credit is the greater of:

·     the monetary equivalent of the existing lawful use of the premises, calculated using the adopted infrastructure charges in Table 2; and

·     the monetary contributions for trunk infrastructure that have been previously made, escalated to present value by applying the movements of the Consumer Price Index (all Groups) for Brisbane between the date that the payment was made and 1 July 2011.

 

(ii)  Applications for development which are not serviced or planned to be serviced by the water supply or sewerage networks for trunk infrastructure will be credited as follows:

 

·     Water supply network:                        30% of total charge

·     Sewerage network:                             20% of total charge

 

(iii) The maximum amount of any credit allocated under this resolution is not to exceed the adopted infrastructure charges for the proposed development.

5.   Until the local government’s priority infrastructure plan is adopted, the resolution —

(i) Identifies trunk infrastructure for the area of the Roma Planning Scheme in Maps 2-6

(ii) Identifies the following trunk infrastructure network or trunk infrastructure networks to which the adopted infrastructure charge applies –– water supply, sewerage, stormwater, transport and parks and community facilities.  

(iii) States the standards of service for each network mentioned in subparagraph (ii) and attached to the resolution.

Executive Summary

 

1.   The Sustainable Planning Act, 2009 requires local governments to prepare Priority Infrastructure Plans (PIP) and adopt and charge for trunk infrastructure in accordance with the Draft State planning regulatory provision (adopted charges).

 

2.   The development of PIPs for the current planning schemes is well advanced and the Council adopted trunk infrastructure charges resolutions towards the end of 2011.

 

3.   An adopted infrastructure charge of $21,000-00 is payable in respect of the proposed development.

 

The adopted infrastructure has been calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in Table 2 of the Council’s adopted infrastructure charges resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for accommodation units (two detached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 2 X $21,000-00

= $42,000-00

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

The monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

AIC      =          $42,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $21,000-00

Refer to Map 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The subject property is located within the Roma PIA of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution.

 

Step 2: Determine what infrastructure networks are covered.

 

Refer to the Plans for Trunk Infrastructure attached to the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The Council provides all five infrastructure networks identified in the plans for trunk infrastructure to the proposed development.

 

Step 3: Determine the land use class of the proposed development.

 

Refer to Table 1 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

Under the Roma planning scheme the proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for accommodation units.

 

Step 4: Determine whether the proponent may be entitled to a credit.

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

2.   Calculating the Charge

 

The adopted infrastructure charge levied for each trunk infrastructure networks must be calculated in accordance with the following formula-

 

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

Step 5: Determine Demand (the total number of adopted charge units generated by the proposed development).

 

Refer to Table 2 of the resolution and floor plan for the proposed development.

 

An adopted charge of $21,000-00 per dwelling for three or more bedrooms applies.

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential for accommodation units (two detached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 2 X $21,000-00

= $42,000-00

 

Step 6: Determine Demand Credit (any credits for existing lawful uses in accordance with the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution (Attached).

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

Under Table 2 of the Roma Adopted Infrastructure Charges Resolution the monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

Step 7: Calculate the Adopted Infrastructure Charge.

 

 

AIC      =          $42,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $21,000-00

4. This resolution states how a charge for particular development is to be discounted to take into account the existing usage of trunk infrastructure by the premises on, or in relation to which the development is carried out.

The adopted infrastructure charge is to be calculated as follows:

AIC = AC –CR 

Where:

·     AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

·     AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in stated in Table 2 of the resolutions; and

·     CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

(i) The credit is the greater of:

·     the monetary equivalent of the existing lawful use of the premises, calculated using the adopted infrastructure charges in Table 2; and

·     the monetary contributions for trunk infrastructure that have been previously made, escalated to present value by applying the movements of the Consumer Price Index (all Groups) for Brisbane between the date that the payment was made and 1 July 2011.

 

(ii)  Applications for development which are not serviced or planned to be serviced by the water supply or sewerage networks for trunk infrastructure will be credited as follows:

 

·     Water supply network:                        30% of total charge

·     Sewerage network:                             20% of total charge

 

(iii) The maximum amount of any credit allocated under this resolution is not to exceed the adopted infrastructure charges for the proposed development.

5.   Until the local government’s priority infrastructure plan is adopted, the resolution —

(i) Identifies trunk infrastructure for the area of the Roma Planning Scheme in Maps 2-6

(ii) Identifies the following trunk infrastructure network or trunk infrastructure networks to which the adopted infrastructure charge applies –– water supply, sewerage, stormwater, transport and parks and community facilities.  

(iii) States the standards of service for each network mentioned in subparagraph (ii) and attached to the resolution.

Adopted Infrastructure Charges Decision Notice

 

 

1.   Amount of the Charge

 

An adopted infrastructure charge of $21,000-00 is payable in respect of the proposed development.

 

The adopted infrastructure has been calculated in accordance with the following formula:

 

AIC = AC –CR

 

Where:

 

AIC is the adopted infrastructure charge that may be levied for development;

 

AC is the adopted charge for the trunk infrastructure networks to service the development stated in Table 2 of the Council’s adopted infrastructure charges resolutions; and

 

CR is the credit for the trunk infrastructure networks servicing the premises.

 

As such, the following will apply to the application:

 

The proposal is for material change of use of a residential lot for accommodation units (two detached units of three bedrooms).

 

This equates to:

 2 X $21,000-00

= $42,000-00

 

The site currently vacant but has the potential for a dwelling with three or more bedrooms (the existing lawful use of the premises).

Resolution the monetary equivalent for a 3 or more bedroom dwelling is $21,000-00.

As such, the proponent is entitled to a credit of $21,000-00

 

AIC      =          $42,000-00 - $21,000-00

 

            =          $21,000-00
