    The Halloran Trust submitted a referral (number 2020/8637) to the Federal Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (DAWE) under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act in relation to the proposed residential site at Callala Bay.

    Council understands that the Act referral was necessary due to the presence of certain EPBC ACT listed plants and animals, in particular, a cluster of the Yellow Gnat Orchid (Genoplesium baueri).

    The proposal was determined to be a “controlled action” under the Act due to likely impacts on the listed threatened species, that requires the proposal to also have approval under the EPBC Act.

    The proposal is being assessed by ‘preliminary documentation’.

    The Planning Proposal (PP028) needs to be finalised before the land can be developed in the future and the studies are progressing. If any conditions are imposed, under the EPBC Act, they will be incorporated into the PP028 package as appropriate.

    For more information, on referral number 2020/8637, visit the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment's EPBC Act - Public Notices web page.

    An update report on the progress of the Biodiversity Certification process for the Halloran Trust Planning Proposals (PP006 and PP028) is expected to be considered by Council’s Development & Environment Committee at its meeting on Tuesday, 6 August 2019.

    Overview

    In April 2017, Council resolved to support, in principle, the preparation of a Biodiversity Certification Application for the Halloran Trust Planning Proposal (which was subsequently separated into PP006 for Culburra Beach and PP028 for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point).

    Council has now received the biodiversity certification reports from the proponent which are required to be submitted to the NSW Government by 25 August 2019. More detail is provided in the information report which will be published on the afternoon of the Friday prior to the meeting.

    The meeting is open to the public and will be held in the Council Chambers within the City Administrative Centre, Bridge Road, Nowra commencing at 5pm. Any enquiries on making representations to the Committee meeting should be:

    • Directed to Council’s Executive Support Manager on (02) 4429 3264.

    Council has received advice from the NSW Department of Planning and Environment that the planning proposal for the Halloran Trust lands at Culburra Beach, Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point has been split into two planning proposals.

    The background to this decision is summarised here.

    Following this decision, Council’s Get Involved page for this project will also be split into two new pages.

    This is the Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point page.

    The Culburra Beach page is available here.

    Council will no longer be placing updates for the proposal on the existing Get Involved page. We will, however, continue to use the mailing list from that page for BOTH the Culburra Beach PP and the Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point PP.

    If you have signed up for updates using the current page, then you should follow one of these options:

    1. If you are interested in BOTH the Culburra Beach PP AND the Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point PP then NO ACTION is required. You will continue to receive updates from both PPs and will be linked to the correct website each time.

    2. If you are only interested in the CULBURRA BEACH PP then you should:

      1. Unsubscribe from the current mailing list; AND

      2. Subscribe to the new page for Culburra Beach here.

    3. If you are only interested in the CALLALA BAY and KINGHORNE POINT PP then you should:

      1. Unsubscribe from the current mailing list; AND

      2. Subscribe to this new page for Callala Bay and Kinghorne Point.

    If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Grant Rokobauer in Council’s Strategic Planning Team on 4429 3522.

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

    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.

    In April this year Council’s Development Committee resolved to support the Biodiversity Certification of the Halloran proposal.

    This means that the proposal will be assessed in detail by NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and then sent to the NSW Minister for the Environment for sign off.

    The proponent is currently undertaking additional investigations in relation to flora and fauna on the site as part of that process.
