Item Number:                                    10.1

File Number: D13/44980

Subject Heading:                         Southern Queensland Country Travellers'Guide - 2014/15

Author and Officer’s Title:                 Ryan Gittins, Coordinator - Economic Development

Executive Summary: 

Pursuant to resolution GM/08.2013/33 Council was to establish a membership with the Outback Queensland Tourism Association (OQTA), in addition to its existing membership with Southern Queensland Country Tourism (SQCT). 

 

As Council intended to join OQTA immediately, and will therefore be a member of two Regional Tourism Organisations (RTO’s) for at least the 2013/14 financial year, and potentially the next, existing budget will be allocated to respective marketing campaigns in a more strategic manner.

 

 

In view of the decision to join the OQTA and reconsider SQCT membership for the 2014/15 period, Council’s endorsement of this approach was sought.

 

Discussion:

Cr. Chambers requested that the spelling of “Mungallala” be corrected in the contained map within the Southern Queensland Travellers Guide Brochure.  The Coordinator – Economic Development advised that this would be amended accordingly.

 

Resolution No. GM/10.2013/03

Subject Heading:                         Maranoa Regional Council's attendance at the Destination Q Tourism Forum, 27 - 28 August 2013

Author and Officer’s Title:                 Ryan Gittins, Coordinator - Economic Development

Executive Summary: 

Councillor Price & Ryan Gittins represented the Maranoa Regional Council (MRC) at the 2013 Destination Q Forum, held on the Gold Coast on 27 & 28 August.

 

This year’s forum built on the foundations that were established at the inaugural Destination Q Forum held in Cairns on 25 & 26 June 2012. Numerous administrative and legal constraints have been removed by the State Government in the year that followed the Cairns Forum, allowing this year’s Destination Q to concentrate on the long-term strategic direction of the tourism industry.

 

The initiative taken by the State Government to collaborate with tourism operators is a positive step for the entire industry. The involvement of Ministers and high-level departmental staff at the forum indicates their willingness to listen to the ideas, complaints and suggestions of the tourism industry and undertake corrective actions as required. These are positive steps for Queensland and its tourism industry as the Government aims to double visitor expenditure by 2020. 

 

Discussion:

Cr. Price & Cr. Flynn positively acknowledged the State Government’s reduction of administrative barriers in action, having both recently organised a community event in Wallumbilla & Roma. 

 

Resolution No. GM/10.2013/04

CHIPS is planning on relocating and restoring the building with the help of volunteer labour and is planning on submitting an application for round 1 of the 2013/14 Community Grants Program. As this project will be facilitated on Council land, Council’s approval is a pre-requisite for this grant application.

(c)  That funding for this project is made available from the community of Injune and/or successful grant application/s.

Author and Officer’s Title:                 Danielle Pearn, Coordinator - Planning

Executive Summary: 

This application sought a Development Permit for Reconfiguring a Lot – 1 into 81 lots, in five stages on land at 150 Bowen Street, Roma QLD 4455.  The proposed reconfiguration will create 81 residential lots to the west of the Roma township in an emerging residential area.

 

A Preliminary Approval to vary the effect of the planning scheme is also sought, to have future development on the site assessed under the Bowen Street Residential Estate Preliminary Approval Document.

 

The proposed lots are generally consistent with the minimum area and width requirements for lots in the Residential Zone in the Urban Area. The development is proposed to be carried out in five stages, with a part of the ultimate internal road layout to be constructed at each stage.  Four larger lots have been proposed for future Dual Occupancy development at a later stage.

 

The proposed development is generally consistent with the provisions of the Roma Town Planning Scheme 2006 including the Desired Environmental Outcomes and Overall Outcomes of the Reconfiguring a Lot Code, and aligns with the Council’s draft Strategic Plan.

 

The proposed development is outside the Priority Infrastructure Area (PIA) and calculations for infrastructure costs have been in accordance with Council’s policy.

Item Number:                                    L.2

File Number: D13/45987

Subject Heading:                         Roma Flood Mitigation Project - Stage 2

Location:                                          Roma

Author and Officer’s Title:                 Michael Parker, Director - Infrastructure Services (Acting)

Executive Summary: 

Council has commenced construction of a levee embankment that is associated with Stage 1 of the Flood Mitigation Project.

Council had also commissioned G.H.D. to ‘carry out’ Stage 2 Scope of Works that would investigate further potential benefits at the following three scales of magnitude:

·         “Regional mitigation” – this considers flooding from runoff originating in the broader Bungil Creek catchment.

·         “Major local mitigation” – this considers mid-scale mitigation options within the town of Roma to mitigate flooding that occurs due to a combination of local runoff and regional tailwater effects, such as occurs through the long drain system and in the vicinity of the Railway Dam.

·         “Minor local” – Drainage improvements – this considers local stormwater drainage issues that occur on a regular basis due to local runoff.
