Overview of Report


This report details the background to the preparation of Draft Ashfield Local Environmental Plan 2013. The report also recommends that the Draft Plan be adopted (as amended) and forwarded to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure and the Minister for Planning and Infrastructure with a required (statutory) report so that it can be gazetted.

 

Draft Ashfield Local Environmental Plan 2013 (refer to Attachments 1 & 2 – click on address link to view http://ashfieldlep.com.au/) has been considered in detail in a series of Council reports considered at three (3) extraordinary meetings of Council held during February 2013 dealing with heritage and non-heritage matters. The minutes of these meetings are attached.

 

Preparation of a comprehensive LEP is recognised in the Ashfield Community Plan as a key tool for appropriate long term development of the Ashfield LGA. The Draft Plan is consistent with and complements the Ashfield Community Plan.

 

The following is an outline of the evolutionary stages of the Draft LEP and the subsequent community engagement process.

 

2.1  Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DOPI) Exhibition Requirements

 

Council received a conditional section 65(2) certificate and an accompanying letter in early 2012 from DOPI to enable the draft Plan to be publicly exhibited. Some changes detailed by the Department within the section 65(2) certificate were required to be made to both the Draft LEP written document and to the Draft LEP Maps – see Part 5 of this report.

 

 

2.2  Community engagement process

An extensive and lengthy communication engagement process to publicise the Draft LEP to the Ashfield community and elicit feedback was completed in 2012. This included contacting key stakeholders including business representatives at the beginning of the process.  Full details are at provided in Section 6 of this report.


 

 

3.0  Draft LEP 2013 - Key documents and studies informing plan preparation

 

3.1 The following summarises the key documents considered in the development of the Draft LEP.

 

(a) The Standard Instrument (Local Environmental Plan) Order 2006

 

Prescribes the new standard form and content for all Local Environmental Plans (LEPs). The Draft LEP implements the provisions set out in the Standard Instrument (Local Environmental Plans) Order 2006 with local variations.

 

In December 2005 DOPI released the Metropolitan Strategy (City of Cities) which set a broad framework and vision for Sydney over the next 25 years. Since the release of the Sydney Metropolitan Strategy, DOPI progressively prepared Subregional Strategies for the Sydney Metropolitan Area. In relation to Ashfield the relevant subregional strategy is the Draft Inner West Subregional Strategy (DISS). This Strategy was exhibited in late 2007.

 

         (b) Ashfield’s Biggest Conversation “ABC” process – carried out by Council in 2009

This extensive process was unprecedented in its scope and breadth and involved a community engagement process extending over 12 months. As part of the “ABC” process 27 events were held which attracted over 1150 participants. This included business and community representatives and dealt with urban planning as well as other issues in Ashfield.  The feedback and report from this process helped to inform the preparation of the Ashfield Urban Planning Strategy. 

 

(c) Ashfield Urban Planning Strategy (AUPS)


The initial step in the pre Draft LEP preparation process was the development of the Ashfield Urban Planning Strategy (AUPS) to guide the future urban planning direction of Ashfield. The AUPS, finalised in 2010, provided a planning framework taking into consideration Ashfield Council’s distinct social, environmental and economic characteristics. The AUPS examined in detail the ability of the Ashfield LGA to accommodate additional dwellings and employment generating development, policy aims specified in the Metropolitan Strategy and enumerated dwelling numbers and floor space targets to be accommodated by 2031 as specified in the Draft Inner West Subregional Strategy. Extensive Feedback from the community, business operators, land owners, internally from Council officers, and responses from State Government agencies and adjoining councils all informed the strategy.

    

         (d) Ashfield Community Plan

The current Community Plan has also informed the preparation and content of Council’s Draft Local Environmental Plan as it sets high-level objectives which in turn inform desired outcomes for land use planning. The aim of this widely publicised  Plan, which was endorsed by the community and Council, was to communicate a medium to long-term  vision (25 years) and framework for a wide spectrum of related issues such as housing, open space, employment and heritage. The Community Plan identified the community’s priorities and aspirations as they emerged from a very detailed engagement process with various stakeholders.

Surveys undertaken for the Community Plan helped to identify a number of issues which were also raised in submissions in response to the public exhibition of the Draft LEP. These include: the need for improved infrastructure, roads, parking facilities, better access to improved public transport, community safety, high quality building design, better community facilities, increased housing choice, the need to protect unique/distinctive neighbourhood character, focussing urban renewal and public domain improvements in Ashfield Town Centre and finally, conserving Ashfield’s heritage.

 

(e) Precinct and Town Centre Heritage Studies

 

Heritage studies which informed drafting of the LEP include the findings of a previous comprehensive heritage precinct review of the LGA undertaken by consultants supplemented by follow up studies including a study of the Ashfield Town Centre. These documents informed the proposed heritage listings in the exhibited draft LEP document and were reviewed by Council’s heritage consultant in response to the submissions which were received.

 

4.0  Draft LEP “pre-exhibition” process – keeping Councillors informed

 

Prior to and concurrently with the plan-making process a number of workshops were held with Ashfield Councillors explaining the new LEP format/zones/development standards and providing an overview of key elements of the proposed Plan in “Plain English”.  A follow up workshop for new Councillors was held in early February 2013.

5.0  Draft LEP – key land use, planning and administrative initiatives

 

(a) Ashfield Town Centre – more land use flexibility

The Town Centre is proposed as a mixed use zone in the Draft LEP. A much wider range of land uses are permitted with consent to encourage residential and business investment.

 

(b) Small Village Centres recognised

Generally small sized concentrations of retail and other local services integrated with public transport services. Summer Hill, Croydon & Haberfield business areas are proposed as local centre zones in Draft LEP.

 

(c) Enterprise Corridor created

 

Areas contiguous with busy roads (Parramatta Road and part of Old Canterbury Road) that connect centres, contain important commercial, retail and light industrial activities but require master planning and planning measures to revitalise business. These areas often provide lower rent locations for start-up enterprises. Parramatta Road and part of Canterbury Road are nominated as Enterprise Corridors in the Draft LEP.

 

(d) Neighbourhood Centres recognised and zoned accordingly

 

Neighbourhoods generally have local shops combined with lower density and medium density residential development. They service the daily needs of residents with basic services within walking distance. They generally have four to ten shops with access to parks, primary school and child care. The Draft Plan recognises the importance of neighbourhood shopping facilities and zones affected land to encourage their retention.


 

 

(e) Proposed Heritage Items/heritage conservation areas recognised

Feedback received from the community as part of the “Ashfield Biggest Conversation” (“ABC”) process and during formulation of Council’s Community Plan highlighted that heritage conservation and measures to retain the character of Ashfield’s unique neighbourhoods were broadly supported. Heritage reviews previously carried out by consultants to update Ashfield’s heritage inventory were supplemented by the engagement of a heritage consultant during the Draft LEP exhibition process to review submissions from property owners. This review was informed by individual meetings with some objectors who met with Council’s consultant by mutual agreement. Many owners of affected properties also addressed Councillors at extraordinary meetings held on 14 February and 21 February 2013.

 

(f)  Open Space identified

 

Local and regional parks, playgrounds and sports fields are identified in the Plan. Preparation of a future Recreation Strategy is desirable to align recreational resources with community needs (some work has already been completed).

 

(g) Renewal encouraged in specific locations

 

A key focus for new housing and business uses is the B4 mixed use zone and for employment generating uses within the proposed B6 Parramatta Road Enterprise Zone (there are also other areas within the LGA suitable for new medium/high density housing).

 

(h) Employment Lands protected

 

Sites for light industry, which are generally small and isolated are to be protected unless replaced with employment generating land uses. For example, the B6 Enterprise Zone along Parramatta Road replaces some light industry zones but is expected to be a significant employment generator.

 

(i)   Mixed Used Development promoted

 

Areas proposed to be zoned for a mix of commercial residential and business activities e.g. Ashfield Town Centre and Summer Hill. Within Ashfield Town Centre there are opportunities to increase the amount of mixed use development.

 

(j)   Other initiatives in the Draft Plan include:

 

§ Correction of zoning mismatches to reflect approved land uses.

§ Built form controls for core area of Ashfield Town Centre that will allow a two (2) floor height bonus in return for inclusion of affordable housing component in a development.

§ Strengthened land use and built form objectives included for all zones.

§ Inclusion of height and floor space ratio controls in the Draft LEP rather than in development control plans.


 

 

§ Small lot subdivision permitted near rail stations to focus increased dwelling densities near stations whilst retaining residential amenity.

§ Inclusion of exempt development provisions in the Draft LEP for minor external and internal works in relation to heritage items and heritage conservation areas to remove the need for property owners to submit development applications.

§ Special uses zone retained for churches/schools, etc where this currently applies.

 

5.0 Draft LEP - Community Engagement Process

5.1 The timing, content, method and extent of community engagement was commensurate with the importance of the Draft LEP.

  The comprehensive communication engagement strategy included the following:

1)   Draft Plan placed on public exhibition from the 27 June – 21 August 2012. The exhibition period therefore extended ran for 56 days or double the minimum statutory requirement.

2)   Appointing a dedicated community staff member to advise and attend multiple    ‘Open House’ public information sessions and provide a report on the process.

3)   Convening a business/community stakeholder reference group prior to commencement of the exhibition process to gauge feedback on the on the effectiveness of the proposed program.

4)   Preparing/distributing Draft LEP information brochures (almost 16,000) to all owners/lessees/ businesses/absentee owners in Ashfield including people renting/leasing properties and all absentee property owners. The brochures briefly summarised the aims the LEP and explained how to access information/attend open house sessions/details of how to access the dedicated the web site/Council officer contacts, etc.

5)   Constructing a comprehensive Draft LEP web site with a range of downloadable explanatory documents and maps including an on line submission facility allowing direct email submissions on the Draft LEP(at the end of the public exhibition period the website had received 1,890 unique visitors comprising 11,078 individual page views).

6)   Holding 5 ‘Open House’ community information sessions (comprising graphic and written displays with staff available to answer questions) at various locations across Ashfield in the early evening as well as a Saturday morning session at Ashfield Mall (with Chinese language interpreter).

7)   Static exhibition material including fact sheets placed on permanent display at various locations in Ashfield including the Customer Service Centre, both libraries and at ‘late evening’ venues (e.g. Wests Leagues Club Ashfield, Wests Sports Club in Croydon and at the Summer Hill Community Centre). Weekly, prominent Council advertisements placed in the ‘Inner West Courier’ for the duration of the exhibition advising of open house sessions, availability of web data, public exhibition times and locations, etc.

8)   Notification letters sent to all relevant Public Authorities as a follow up to previous mandatory consultation required under former Section 62 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act.


 

 

9)   Council officer direct access telephone numbers displayed in newspaper advertisements and online on the Draft LEP website.

10)       Mailing just under 2,000 individual letters to property owners advising of proposed heritage listings (mail out included a general heritage brochure). An updated heritage brochure and separate Fact Sheet answering general FAQ’s about heritage (text sourced from NSW Heritage Office) was also placed on the Draft LEP web site. Letters were subsequently sent to individuals who made a submission inviting them to attend meetings with Council’s heritage consultant to outline their concerns. Approximately 70 property owners took advantage of this opportunity. Detailed Heritage Inventory Sheets/Statements of Heritage Significance applying to proposed items and conservation areas were also made available in hard copy at the primary Civic Centre exhibition location (the availability of this additional data was also publicised). Extracts from exhibited heritage studies were also emailed on demand expeditiously to everyone who requested them (see previous reports).

11)       A heritage consultant was appointed to provide expert advice on public submissions received relative to the heritage significance of specific properties and heritage conservation areas and to meet with concerned property owners who had objected to proposed listings. Recommendations from the heritage consultant were prepared independently and without input from Council officers (a number of recommendations from the heritage consultant were not agreed with by officers for strategic town planning reasons).

 

5.2 The following additional material was placed on public exhibition

 

§ Mayoral welcome on behalf of Council.

§ Written Draft LEP document.

§ ‘Plain English’ explanatory notes.

§ A series of Fact Sheets designed to help the public understand the Draft LEP.

§ Section 65 Certificate and letter from DOPI authorising exhibition of the Plan.

§ Section 64 Report to DOPI requesting permission to exhibit Draft Plan.

§ Ashfield Urban Planning Strategy.

§ Ashfield Profile.

§ Ashfield Community Plan.

§ Heritage brochure and heritage inventories.

§ Statements required by the DOPI to accompany Draft LEP certification.


5.3 Post Exhibition Process

The following was undertaken:

 

§ Extraordinary Council meeting held on 8 November 2013 to consider heritage issues and determine meeting schedule for further consideration of the Draft LEP.

§ Letters sent to individuals who made a submission in December 2012 and then again in late January 2013 inviting them to attend the three (3) Extraordinary Council meetings and of the opportunity to make personal representations. Information was also provided on how to access the Council reports for the three meetings.


 

 

§ Three Extraordinary Council Meetings held in February 2013 to hear both heritage and non-heritage submissions.

§ Council website and dedicated website displays updated and repeat newspaper advertisements to publicise the meetings.

§ All post exhibition reports and minutes made publicly available in hard copy and on Council’s website.

6.0 Overview – Draft LEP content - community response

 

A synopsis of the higher level strategic land use and/or planning policy issues raised by the community during the Draft LEP public exhibition process was previously reported to Council and is summarised below.

 

Considered in broader policy context there has been little or no significant opposition to important initiatives in the Draft Plan which include promoting development in specific areas such as within the proposed Enterprise Zone along Parramatta Road and a new mixed use zone in Ashfield Town Centre.

 

This reflects the thoroughness of the community engagement process and also the fact that the Draft LEP adopts key principles informed by numerous other related community engagement initiatives. As Council will be aware, most submissions received opposing the Plan dealt with heritage matters.

 

Some late submissions raised the issue that the Draft LEP did not provide sufficient development incentives (mostly in relation to Ashfield Town Centre) and changes to development standards and/or zoning provisions were requested.  Conversely, other members of the community expressed concerns about possible overdevelopment.

 

Respondents generally supported the general strategy adopted in the plan of promoting limited growth only if targeted in key centres and along transport corridors (as is proposed). The broadly divergent range of responses received is considered a good indicator of Council adopting a reasonably balanced and sensitive approach to development – a key aim of the Draft Plan.

 

7.0 Council response to submissions received

 

At the three Extraordinary Council Meetings held in February, Council considered reports and recommendations dealing with heritage and non-heritage related submissions and passed various resolutions (refer to attached minutes from the three meetings – Attachment 3). The Draft LEP changes recommended and agreed by Council to date are essentially minor in nature and have ‘been in the public arena’ in the sense that they relate to provisions that were publicly exhibited and acknowledge that in some instances changes were both warranted and justified.

 

Some specific (heritage) matters were also deferred at these meetings following representations from property owners and in other instances documents were submitted at the meetings which have required further assessment. These deferred matters and late submissions have been assessed and are documented in the next section of the report.


 

 

8.0 Deferred Matters/Late Submissions

 

8.1  Background

At the extraordinary meetings held on 14 February 2013 and 28 February 2013, which dealt with the inclusion of heritage items and heritage conservation areas. Council resolved to defer a final decision on heritage listings concerning a number of individual heritage items and the proposed Rathgael Estate Heritage Conservation Area. This was to permit further submissions to be made by property owners and/or their representatives and to also allow Council’s heritage consultant an opportunity to respond to further issues raised by Councillors and objectors at those meetings. Council also received late submissions regarding proposed heritage listings.

 

Owners or owner’s representatives who made a representation at the meetings regarding individual heritage item listings were subsequently contacted by letter and allowed until Friday 8 March 2013 to provide additional information/feedback. All additional written comments received to date are provided at Attachment 4. These submissions have been reviewed by Council’s heritage consultant – see consultant’s report and recommendations at Attachment 5.

 

A verbal request by the property owner of 40 William Street, Ashfield was also made at the extraordinary meeting of 21 February 2013 to retain the property as a heritage item in the proposed Mountjoy Estate Conservation area.

 

An additional verbal request was subsequently received (post meeting) from the owners of 18A Kenilworth Street, Croydon (a proposed heritage item in the proposed Ivanhoe Estate heritage conservation area) asking that Council’s heritage consultant visit their property/listen to their concerns. This request was followed up, however, at the time of writing this report no additional written submission has been received (see original objection at Attachment 4).

 

The following table summarises the recommendations relating to the deferred matters and late submissions.

 

Note: Some additional individually listed items are now proposed to be removed that were not previously deferred by Council as a result of the Consultant’s most recent review of the deferred items.

40 William Street, Ashfield

Retain as heritage item

 

8.2  Officer Comment

 

Council officers concur with the recommendations made by the heritage consultant in relation to all of the deferred matters and late submissions. They are based on a further review of additional material supplemented by site inspections and additional interviews where requested by property owners. The report recommendation reflects the advice from Council’s heritage consultant.

 

The property owner of 44 Service Avenue, Ashfield (refer to submission in Attachment 4) has, in addition to the objection to the individual heritage item listing of the property (now recommended for removal), made reference to potential changes to the Draft LEP concerning heritage clauses. By way of comment, it would not be possible to introduce a clause in the Draft Plan to override State Policies as suggested (DOPI is unlikely to agree to this), nor is it possible to list every conceivable type of exempt development in the Draft Plan.


 

The exempt development categories proposed are considered appropriate. Clause 5.10 subclause (3) in the Draft LEP (Heritage Conservation – “When consent is not required”) permits minor maintenance works to be carried out to heritage items without development consent subject to a prior letter of approval being obtained from Council. This allows an appropriate degree of flexibility.

 

9.0 Amendments to the Draft LEP

The Draft LEP changes recommended and agreed by Council to date are essentially minor in nature and have “been in the public arena” in the sense that they relate to provisions that were publicly exhibited. Council officers are of the view that the proposed amendments to the Draft LEP which have been resolved to date and recommended as part of this report are of a nature and type that would not require the re-exhibition of the Draft LEP.

 

10.0  Making the Draft LEP

 

It is recommended that Council resolve to proceed with the Draft LEP 2013 (as amended) and forward a report (Section 68 Report) to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure who will then prepare a Section 69 Report to the Minister to enable the Draft Plan to be made. The Section 68 Report is a document required by law to be submitted to DOPI summarising submissions and amendments made to the Draft Plan.

 

As part of this process it will be necessary for officers to amend the Draft LEP so that it is  consistent with all Council’s resolutions made at the extraordinary meetings held on 14, 21, 28 February 2013 and this meeting. The legal branch of the Department may also request further minor amendments or other changes be made before the plan is reported to the Minister to be made (gazetted). It is therefore recommended that Council grant delegated authority to the General Manager to deal with minor administrative amendments arising from this necessary legal scrutiny process.

 

11.0  Ashfield Development Control Plan/Developer Contributions Plan

 

Ashfield’s Development Control Plan will need to be reviewed in two phases - initially to align it with the content of the new LEP and then more comprehensively. The statutory requirement is that a new DCP be in place within 6 months of gazettal of the Draft LEP. The Ashfield Section 94 Contributions Plan will also need to be updated as soon as practicable to support the increased dwelling numbers and commercial and industrial floor space planned in the Draft LEP. This will enable the planning, funding and implementation of additional local open space, community and road and traffic infrastructure that will be required to meet the increased demand. A further report will be submitted to Council dealing with these matters in the near future.

 

12.0  Conclusion

 

The preparation of the Draft LEP has been an extensive and thorough process which has taken place over the past five years. The Draft Plan will replace the existing 1985 LEP which is outdated and inconsistent with an emerging new planning framework.


 

 

Draft LEP 2013 provides a much clearer, superior planning framework and stronger planning provisions with regard to land use, development potential, heritage, sustainable development and biodiversity. It also promotes affordable housing and targets the revitalisation of commercial centres including a new enterprise zone along Parramatta Road that will benefit the local economy. The Plan will ensure that Council’s dwelling and employment targets specified in the Draft Inner West Strategy will be achieved and also protects the character of Ashfield’s residential areas and its heritage.

 

The Plan was prepared and exhibited so as to comply fully with the requirements of relevant legislation including mandated consultation with public authorities and was subject to a comprehensive community consultation process. 

 

It is now recommended that Council adopt the Draft Local Environmental Plan 2013 (as amended by previous Council resolutions and the outcome of this meeting) so that a Section 68 Report can be prepared for submission to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure and request that the Minister for Planning & Infrastructure make the Plan.
