1.    Executive Summary

 

The application seeks consent for a one day music event at Randwick Racecourse known as The Future Music Festival. It is proposed to take place on Saturday 6 March 2010 between 12 midday and 10pm and cater for 38,000 people.

 

The application was lodged on 25 November 2009 and notified to the surrounding properties and advertised in the press for 14 days from 9 December to 23 December 2009. Six submissions were received raising predominantly issues relating to the organisation of the event based upon experience from last year’s event. These included requests for better traffic and transport arrangements, better deterrence of event goers moving on to Coogee and other town centres and venues after the event, better co-ordination of post-event clean-up, and similar conditions of alcohol service as the previous 2009 event. To a lesser degree, concerns regarding noise, rowdy drunken and drug-affected behaviour, vandalism, trespassing, intimidation, and other general anti-social behaviour have been raised. Conditions to address these concerns will be applied in addition to plans and strategies already in place to further improve the security and control of the event.

 

The event for 2010 is proposed with a crowd capacity of 38,000 compared with the restriction of 35,000 people for the 2009 event. The applicant advises that the increase in numbers is necessary for the following reasons:

 

·      It allows for additional income required to fund the traffic, transportation, pedestrian and resident action plans for the event, which, while being of a high standard and operational improvement, is extremely costly to the event.

 

·      There have been significant infrastructure improvements to the Racecourse since the 2009 event including a new taxi terminus and new bus terminus such that better crowd management on Alison Road can be facilitated through the quicker dispersion of crowds and therefore reducing the impact on the local community.

 

·      A crowd of 38,000 for The Future Music event will be consistent with other similar music events at Centennial Park (such as Good Vibrations in February and Parklife in October) which operate to a capacity of 38,000.

 

Having regard to the applicant’s reasons, the increase in number is considered reasonable and acceptable for the following additional reasons:

 

·      The increase is not considered excessive amounting to an additional 3,000 people who can be catered for under improved operational measures proposed for the  2010 event as discussed in the report below.

 

·      In an event de-brief held after the 2009 event, it was generally noted that the comprehensive traffic, transportation, pedestrian and resident action plans put in place for the 2009 event resulted in significant improvements in security, traffic and crowd behaviour over that of previous years such that an increase of 3,000 people under similar and improved measures for the 2010 event  can be accommodated.

 

·      No objections have been raised to the increase in numbers in resident submission, with the Randwick Precinct Committee requesting that the same provisions applicable to the last event be applied to the current proposal subject to, amongst other things, “maximum event numbers of 38,000”.

 

The application was referred externally to both the NSW Police Service (Eastern Beaches) and the RTA for comments. All comments have been received and appropriate conditions will be applied in line with these and other internal comments should approval be granted for the event. In particular, the police have requested for additional new/improved strategies to be included as conditions of consent for this year’s event to ensure that security is improved and potential criminal activities minimised.

 

The recommendation is for approval with conditions including new and improved measures to traffic, transportation and security.

 

2.    The Proposal

 

The proposal is for a music festival for approximately 38,000 people at the Royal Randwick Racecourse grounds on Saturday, 6 March 2010, commencing from 12.00noon to 10.00pm. The application is only for the one designated day in 2010.

 

The proposal also involves the erection of temporary structures comprising primarily performance stages. It is not proposed to carry out any permanent building works.

 

3.    The Subject Site and Surrounding Area

 

Randwick Racecourse is bounded by Alison Road, Wansey Road, High Street and the rear of predominately residential properties fronting Doncaster Avenue. The Racecourse is surrounded by residential areas containing the broad spectrum of housing types. The main University of NSW campus and Centennial Park are also in close proximity to the site. Figure 1 is an aerial view of the subject site and surrounding area.

4.    Site History

 

A large number of Development Applications concerning the various parts of the Racecourse have been submitted and approved in the last decade. The following previous music events are noted:

 

·      Development Application No. 771/2000 for a major Olympic promotional activity (Coca Cola Redfest) for maximum of 30,500 people including installation of temporary works on 15 September 2000 from 3pm to 11pm was approved under delegated authority on 11 September 2000.

·      Development Application No. 904/2005 for a music festival with approximately 10,000 people was approved under delegated authority on 2 February 2006 subject to conditions.

·      Development Application No. 74/2007 for a music festival with approximately 15,000 people was approved under delegated authority on 14 March 2007 subject to conditions.

·      Development Application No. 987/2007 for a music festival with approximately 35,000 people was approved under delegated authority on 5 March 2008 subject to conditions.

·      Development Application No. 694/2008 for a music festival with approximately 35,000 people was approved under by the Land and Environment Court on 25 February 2009 subject to conditions.

 

5.    Community Consultation

 

The proposal has been notified in accordance with the DCP – Public Notification 1998 and six submissions were received raising the following issues (many of the issues raised are shared between the individual objections and will be grouped below to avoid repetition):

 

Issue

Comment

Closing time of 9:30 pm preferred to allow earlier dispersal of crowds.

The current proposal is not seeking an increase in closing time to that granted for the event in previous years. Additional emphasis has been provided in the current proposal to improve egress strategy after the event including:

·      Use of an Integrated Ticket Transport Strategy to encourage use of public transport to and from the event and thus minimise impact/exposure to local residential area.

·      Traffic management planning to manage all event generated pedestrian movements, event generated bus movements  and private vehicles and non-event generated traffic flows to allow for smooth and safe egress

·      Use of the bus lane along Anzac Parade as a pedestrian corridor to allow a greater ability to direct and move people from the site towards the City by foot after the event.

·      General crowd management plans that aim to significantly moderate behaviour and reduce nuisance to residents.

Disturbance caused by people flocking to the event and milling about the streets as well as people

 

This issue can be addressed by measures to facilitate expedient egress of crowds away from the local residential areas around the racecourse post-event should approval be granted for the DA including:

 

·      Use of an Integrated Ticket Transport Strategy to encourage use of public transport to and from the event and thus minimise impact/exposure to local residential area.

 

·      Traffic management planning to manage all event generated pedestrian movements, event generated bus movements  and private vehicles and non-event generated traffic flows to allow for smooth and safe egress

 

·      Use of the bus lane along Anzac Parade as a pedestrian corridor to allow a greater ability to direct and move people from the site towards the City by foot after the event.

 

·      General crowd management plans that aim to significantly moderate behaviour and reduce nuisance to residents.

Noise levels still unsatisfactory

An acoustic report has been submitted with the application which includes recommendations to ensure relevant standards and acoustic amenity is maintained during the event. Council’s Environmental Health Officer has assessed the report and advises that the report is acceptable subject to appropriate conditions to ensure the noise associated with the proposal is maintained at a reasonable level and that the nearby likely affected residents are provided with the details of the proposal including the appropriate contact details should they wish to make any complaints or have any further enquires regarding the proposed event.

Crowds moving onto other venues in surrounding suburbs during and after the event causing disturbance and anti-social behaviour.

The applicant advises that the proposed event will further refine the crowd ingress and egress measures to minimise impacts on surrounding residential areas including increasing public awareness of the dedicated High Street and Alison Road access points and use of the bus lane along Anzac Parade as a pedestrian corridor to allow a greater ability to direct and move people from the site towards the City by foot after the event.

Control of alcohol sales required including cessation of alcohol service at 9pm and use on non-glass containers.

Conditions will be imposed upon any consent including limiting alcohol sales to 2 drinks per person per sale and terminating alcohol sales one hour before closing (ie 9pm). This will be in addition to other controls established as a matter of course by the applicable liquor license.

 

Parking spaces available on-site are significantly inadequate to deal with the parking demand with overflow expected on nearby residential streets in excess of their capacity to absorb it.

 

The application proposes integrated ticketing which provides pre-paid integrated public transport in the ticket price. This should assist in addressing this issue.

Pedestrian movement impact upon traffic needs to be better managed especially crowds crossing Alison Road at ingress and egress times.

Conditions can be applied should approval be granted for the DA to reinforce the proposed pedestrian/traffic management that which does not involve the closure of Alison Road and that uses the bus lane along Anzac Parade as a pedestrian corridor to allow a greater ability to direct and move people from the site towards the City by foot after the event.

 

Anti social behaviour including (including, public urination, vandalism and public fornication) in residential areas.

As required in the 2009 event, the applicant can be required to provide improved measures including

better toilet facilities not permitted for “pass-outs”; limitation of alcohol sales, increased mobile patrol, restriction of hours and elimination of “pass-outs” should approval be granted for the DA. More significant concerns have been raised by the NSW Police regarding criminal activity arising in the event that would warrant refusal of the DA as discussed below.

 

A number of measures raised in submissions will be applied by conditions of consent should approval be granted for the DA including measures agreed to by the project manager for the event in a meeting with Council officers on 27 January 2010, namely, that all Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) be adopted at identified intersections for the event; additional Venue Messaging Sign (VMS) be installed on Alison Road facing east-bound traffic to direct patrons driving to the event to turn right at Wansey Road to access event parking; and use of AJC water truck to spray infield roadway to minimise dust generated by vehicles along the infield road.

“The application seeks consent for a one day music event at Randwick Racecourse known as The Future Music Festival. It is proposed to take place on Saturday 6 March 2010 between noon and 10pm and cater for 38,000 people.  This event has occurred at this site annually since 2006 but with increasing numbers of patrons.

 

A Traffic, Transport and Pedestrian Management Plan prepared by Julian Sanderson and Andrew Sturday of Events & Sports Projects Australia (project manager of the event) has been lodged with the DA. Discussions were held with the project manager on 27 January 2010 to address a range of potential transportation and traffic issue. At this meeting, the project manager clarified the transportation and traffic measures that would be applied to ensure smooth ingress and egress movements for the event as well as to include new measures requested in submissions from the Precinct Committees (namely, adopt all Traffic Control Plans (TCPs) for the event; install additional Venue Messaging Sign (VMS); and dust reduction measures in the infield road). The project manager advice included an undertaking to update the submitted traffic plan into a Final Version of the Traffic Management Plan for the Future Music Event 2010 Sydney as contained in the following e-mail to Council’s Development Engineer:

Additional security x 4, to be deployed to Lang / Anzac for Egress to assist police at this point.

 

Special Event Clearways (SEC)

Special Event Clearways will be kept to a minimum so as not to disrupt the non-event community and displace local parking spaces to other areas unless absolutely required.

The following Special Event Clearways have been requested;

On Eastern Side Wansey Rd (opposite to Randwick Racecourse Gate 10) for a total of 80m (40m either side of entry), to facilitate truck movements to and from infield, from 7am 28 February until 7pm 9 March. (TBC with organiser, council, RTA)

On Northern side of High St for 100m east of High St Entry Gate, from 10am until 12midnight on Sat 6 March,

On Darley Rd, both sides of road between Alison Rd and Roundabout at Randwick Gates, Centennial Park (approx. 160m in total), to facilitate area for bus layover prior to egress, suggest starting from 10am to give an opportunity for residents to re-park their vehicles. We can also tape over the parking metres at 9:45am so no additional people park in this area, and continue until 12midnight.

On Alison Rd, western side between John St and Cowper St (approx. 200m in length), to facilitate area for bus layover prior to egress, 10am until 12midnight on Sat 6 March,

Static and VMS signage to be used to direct patrons to Alison Rd and High St Entry Points”

 

Conditions will be applied for the above-listed measures detailed in the project manager’s advice to be incorporated into a final comprehensive traffic management plan as discussed further below.

 

The Development Engineer raises no objections to the increase in number of patrons from 35,000 in the 2009 event to 38,000 in the proposed 2010 event, however any TMP or egress plan must make provision for extra capacity in the proposed transfer of exiting patrons by buses. Conditions will be applied accordingly.

 

Consistent with conditions imposed in the consent granted for the 2009 event (DA 694/2008), conditions requiring the submission of a comprehensive traffic management plan (TMP) will be applied which will incorporate all measures detailed in the e-mail dated 29 January 2010 from Julian Sanderson to Council’s Development Engineer, John Flanigan. Such plan also must not include the closure of Alison Road. Full details of any clearway required as approved by Council’s Local Traffic Committee must be included in the traffic management plan. The traffic management plan must be submitted to Council, for approval by Council, the NSW Police Force and the RTA’s Transport Management Centre prior to 26 February 2010. The applicant must fully comply with the approved TMP. Note: any TMP for this event must significantly increase the capacity of the buses for egress of the event as proposed in the “2009 Future Music Festival – Site Plan Proposed Egress Operations”, (it is recommended that the capacity be increased from the proposed 12000 to 18000 as a minimum).

 

The applicant must prepare a comprehensive egress plan for the event. The egress plan must be submitted to Council, for approval by Council and the NSW Police Force prior to 26 February 2010.

6.4      Heritage

 

The application has been referred to Council’s Heritage Planner for comment, conditions have been provided for inclusion with any consent granted. The following comments were received:

 

“Randwick Racecourse together with a number of properties on the eastern side of Doncaster Avenue, comprise the Randwick Racecourse Conservation Area.  The Members’ Stand within the site is also listed as a heritage item. 

 

The application proposes the staging of an event within the Racecourse site.  The “Future Music Festival” is to be held on 6 March, within the “Spectator Precinct” and “Midfield/Infield” areas of the site.  The Midfield/Infield is in the centre of the tracks themselves.  The Spectator Precinct is bounded by Alison Road, the former tramway/busway reserve and the track itself.  This area includes the Members’ Stand, as well as the Totaliser Building and the Tea House.  The event areas are to be separated from the remainder of the site by temporary fencing, with a temporary overground access between them, across the tracks. 

 

The application has been accompanied by an Operational Order and Emergency Response Plan, which sets out the requirements of the proposed event including installation of stages, enclosures, decking, signage, toilets, lighting, rides and vending outlets.  Bar service is to be provided from the Totaliser Building and the toilets in the Tea House are to be utilised by attendees.  It is noted that the staging of the event does not involve the carrying out of any works within the site. It is considered that the proposed works will not impact on the heritage significance of the Racecourse site. 

 

The following conditions should be included in any consent:

 

·      The installation of temporary facilities including stages, enclosures, decking, fencing, signage, toilets, lighting, rides and vending outlets is to be carried out to ensure that there is no damage to the site, including built structures and landscape elements.” 

 

6.5      NSW Roads and Traffic Authority

 

The application was referred to the RTA for comment and the following comments were received:

 

6.6      NSW Police Service – Eastern Beaches Local Command Area

 

The application has been referred to the NSW Police for comment. The following comments were received on 2 February 2010:

 

“Since the circulation of the initial Police response to the development application for the Future Music Festival at Randwick Race Course (dated 14 January 2010) there has been significant discussion between the promoter, Brett Robinson, representatives of the Australian Jockey Club including Darren Pearce, Adam Smith and Shane Brady, and the Eastern Beaches Local Area Command represented by Superintendent Allan Sicard and Chief Inspector David McBeath.

 

As a result of those discussions and a consultation meeting a number of strategies have been put forward by all parties involved. In brief these strategies include:

 

·      The use of print and electronic media in advance of the event to reinforce the harm minimisation message to patrons.

·      Strengthening the promoter’s conditions of entry to the event.

·      Agreement on a series of planning meetings between stakeholders to map plans for the security of the event (first meeting scheduled for 18 February 2010).

·      The use of further specialist NSW Police resources at the event in concert with the application of other Policing tactics. This will represent a further increase in the User Charges Policing commitment to the event.

·      The application of the Australia Jockey Club Act 2008 to the management of the event

·      Various structural and space modifications to the event site

·      Increasing the current area of CCTV coverage of the event site

·      The agreed application of a local liquor licensing arrangement that will govern the sale and consumption of intoxicating liquor at the event (as in 2009)

·      A comprehensive Traffic Management Plan including integrated transport ticketing.

·      In terms of event capacity the NSW Police will resource the event commensurate with the risk and based on the crowd capacity identified as acceptable to the precinct and the site by Council.

·      A request from the Promoter to Randwick Council to include conditions of entry as part of the development consent for the event.

 

In considering these new strategies in concert with plans and strategies already in place for the management of the event, it is now appropriate for all stakeholders to move forward. NSW Police Commander Superintendent Allan Sicard acknowledges that with further detailed planning the risks detailed in previous correspondence to Council will be mitigated.”

 

A condition will be applied requiring all the above-listed measures to be implemented for the proposed event to improve security and control of the event.

 

7.    Relevant Environmental Planning Instruments

 

The Development application has been assessed in accordance with the provisions of the following relevant planning documents:

 

7.1      Randwick Local Environmental Plan 1998

 

The application was lodged on the 25 November 2009 such that the Savings provisions of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 1998 (Consolidation) allow for the application to be assessed and determined under the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 1998.

 

The site is zoned 6A Open Space under Randwick Local Environmental Plan 1998 and the proposed activity is permissible with Council’s consent. The following Clauses of the LEP 1998 apply to the proposal:-

 

Clause 43    Protection of heritage items, heritage conservation areas and relics

Clause 43 requires Council to consider the impact of proposals on, amongst other things, the heritage significance of the heritage conservation area in which a proposal is located. The proposed event will be held in the Royal Randwick Racecourse which is a heritage conservation area and the Members’ Stand within the site is also listed as a heritage item.  The proposal will not involve any demolition, defacing, damage, removal or alteration to the heritage conservation area and the heritage item.  Council’s heritage planner has assessed the proposed event and advises that the proposed use and works for the event will not impact on the heritage significance of the Racecourse site subject to condition of consent. Accordingly, the proposal satisfies the provisions of Clause 43.

 

 

 

 

Clause 40A        Master Plans

Clause 40A of the RLEP states as follows:

 

(1)      Despite any other provisions of this plan, consent may be granted to a development application made in respect of a site area consisting of more than 4,000 square metres of land only if:

 

(a)      a master plan for the development of that land has been adopted in accordance with this clause, and

(b)      the consent authority is satisfied that the development is not inconsistent with the provisions of that master plan.

 

The site is subject to a Development Control Plan that guides the future development of the site and as such the Masterplan provision of LEP has been satisfied.

 

8.    Policy Controls

 

Section 94A Development Contributions Plan

 

The Section 94A Development Contributions Plan, effective from 2 July 2007, is applicable to the proposal. In accordance with the Plan, the following monetary levy is required should approval be granted for the DA:

 

Category

Cost

Applicable Levy

S94A Levy

Development cost

$100,001 - $200,000

$120,000

0.5%

$6,000

 

Development Control Plan – Royal Randwick Racecourse

The DCP – Royal Randwick Racecourse essentially aims to provide planning and design objectives and performance criteria which will optimise, amongst other things, the thoroughbred racing, training and spectator facility of RRR to the highest quality; the economic and tourism destination of the RRR; the physical, recreational and environmental quality of the RRR while respecting its heritage significance; the role of the RRR within the metropolitan and Randwick City context and its compatibility with adjoining lands; and the role of the RRR as an open space recreation facility. Whilst the DCP primarily controls the long term design of buildings, heritage conservation, traffic and transport systems, and landscape works for the RRR, the proposed event will be consistent with relevant DCP aims and attendant performance criteria attached to these aims. In particular, the proposed event will maintain the general pattern of land uses across the site as indicated in Map 2 of the DCP in so far as these relate to non-racing recreation and entertainment events, and the traffic/transport management strategies for non-racing recreation and entertainment events.

 

9.    Environmental Assessment

 

The site has been inspected and the application has been assessed having regard to Section 79C of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979, as amended.

 

9.1    Security and anti-social behaviour

Some concern has been raised in the resident submission in regards to anti-social behaviour. Whilst, a number of measures have been implemented in the 2009 event to minimise this concern, the NSW Police in its submission to the current DA advised that following intensive discussions with the events organisers new strategies to augment the measures implemented in the 2009 event especially to address the Police’s concerns regarding security and potential criminal activity.

 

The Police have indicated in their submission, that these specific concerns can now be addressed through additional and/or enhanced strategies agreed to with the event organisers (as listed in the Police’s letter to Council dated 30 January 2010 and reproduced in Section 6.6 above). Conditions will be applied to incorporate the Police’s advice should approval be granted for the DA.

9.2    Noise

An acoustic report has been submitted with this application which includes recommendations to ensure relevant standards and acoustic amenity is maintained during the event. Council’s Environmental Health Officer has assessed the report and advises that the report is acceptable subject to appropriate conditions to ensure the noise associated with the proposal is maintained at a reasonable level and that the nearby likely affected residents are provided with the details of the proposal including the appropriate contact details should they wish to make any complaints or have any further enquires regarding the proposed event should approval be granted for the DA.

 

9.3    Traffic

Council’s Development Engineer has reviewed the Traffic Management Plan and does not object to approval of the application subject to conditions should approval be granted for the DA.

 

9.4    Waste Management

The venue and surrounding area will be cleaned prior, after and during the event. An event contract cleaner will be appointed and a waste management plan has been submitted with the application.

 

A condition can be applied requiring a security deposit bond to be lodged with Council to ensure satisfactory compliance with the submitted Waste Management Plan and satisfactory cleaning of the surrounding area within 24 hours of the close of the event should approval be granted for the DA.

 

Relationship to City Plan

 

The relationship with the City Plan is as follows:

 

Outcome 6:       A liveable City.

Direction 6b:     Our town centres, beaches, public places and streets are safe inviting, clean and support a recognisable image of our city.

 

Financial Impact Statement

 

Approval of the application has the potential to place significant financial burden upon the Council, particularly in respect of event monitoring and additional cleanup and monitoring of the event. Conditions of consent, including security bonds, will need to be applied to minimise this should approval be granted for the DA.

 

Conclusion

 

The proposed development is permissible in the zone. Whilst the intensity of the temporary use is likely to be greater than the use of the Racecourse on race days as it will feature live music bands, appropriate conditions for the implementation of a range of measures and management strategies can be applied to ensure that any adverse impact upon local residents is minimised. In particular, the proposed event will have improved transportation and traffic measures to ensure smooth ingress and egress movements for the event, and improved security controls and arrangements recommended by the Police following intensive discussions between the Police and event organisers. The heritage significance of the site will not be affected and any adverse amenity impact in terms of noise and traffic are of limited duration.

 

The DA is recommended for approval subject to conditions.
