  • Progression in Parts - Splitting the Halloran Trust Lands Planning Proposal

    3 months ago

    Council is considering adjusting the Halloran PP so that it can be made as two separate plan amendments. This will be achieved by either an adjustment to the wording of the NSW Department of Planning’s Gateway Determination or by creating a new planning proposal for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point.

    The reasons for this are summarised below:

    Reduce Delays for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point

    Council is considering adjusting the Halloran PP so that it can be made as two separate plan amendments. This will be achieved by either an adjustment to the wording of the NSW Department of Planning’s Gateway Determination or by creating a new planning proposal for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point.

    The reasons for this are summarised below:

    Reduce Delays for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point

    There is a complex water quality investigation being undertaken for the Culburra Beach site. This investigation is required to ensure that Lake Wollumboola is protected. This investigation will take a little over 2 years to complete. The investigation does not relate to Kinghorne Point and Callala Bay. Separating these sites will allow them to progress without having to wait the two years for this investigation.

    Improve Community Consultation

    The change will mean that there will be separate community consultation for Callala Bay and Culburra Beach. This means that both communities will get an equal voice in their part of the proposal. There is a risk that if the proposal remains consolidated that one community may be overshadowed by the other in the engagement process. There is also the potential for confusion as local communities try to sort through what information is and is not relevant to them. Splitting the proposal will also prevent any perception that one community or village is being disadvantaged to benefit the other.

    We anticipate this change being considered by Council's Development Committee on 12 September 2017.

    Wollumboola

    Council have engaged HGEO to conduct a groundwater investigation of the site to determine the extent of the groundwater catchment of Lake Wollumboola. The preliminary part of this investigation is complete and has determined that the following work is needed:

    1. The Groundwater and Lake levels need to be monitored for 2 years

    2. A soil and rock core needs to be taken and tested

    This conclusion has been supported by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

    Council is currently organising the financing and logistics for the commencement of the monitoring and sampling so that the investigation can progress.
