Except as amended by the Section 96 ‘A’ documentation only in so far as they relate to the modifications highlighted on the Section 96 ‘A’ documentation and detailed in the Section 96 application, except as may be amended by other conditions of this consent:

 

Amend Condition No. 72 to read:

72)   The hours of operation for the outdoor play areas is restricted to:

Monday to Friday:       8:30am to 5:00pm

 

Amend Condition No. No. 80 to read:

80)   The proposed use of the premises and the operation of all plant and equipment shall not give rise to an ‘offensive noise’ as defined in the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 and Regulations.

 

In this regard, the operation of the premises and plant and equipment shall not give rise to a sound pressure level at any affected premises that exceeds the background (LA90), 15 min noise level, measured in the absence of the noise source/s under consideration by more than 5dB(A).  The source noise level shall be assessed as an LAeq, 15 min and adjusted in accordance with the NSW Environmental Protection Authority’s Industrial Noise Policy 2000 and Environmental Noise Control Manual (sleep disturbance).

 

Amend to Condition No. 82 to read:

82)     The operation of the site and the project specific criteria for noise emissions shall be in accordance with the acoustic report referenced 20120735.1/0909A/R7/TT dated 27 November 2013 prepared by Acoustic Logic PTY LTD unless otherwise stated by this development consent”.

 

Additional condition is added to read as follows;

(82.a) In accordance with the acoustic report 20120735.1/0909A/R7/TT prepared by Acoustic Logic PTY LTD dated 27 November 2013 the following measures are to be implemented:

 

·          A minimum 1.8m high bound fence/noise screen is required along the western boundary of the upper outdoor play area. Fence is to consist of Colorbond, lapped and capped timber or (clear) Perspex, or a combination of these items.

 

·          For the remaining fencing around the play areas, the 1.8m High Solid (Colorbond) Boundary fencing is to be retained. If replaced- any replacement fence should be at least 1.8m high and imperforate (no holes- e.g. lapped and capped timber or colorbond).

 

·          There is to be a solid noise screen constructed to separate the upper and lower place areas. The screen is to be constructed along the top of the rock ledge at the edge of the upper play area. The height of the top of the screen is to be such that it provides line of sight between the lower (active play”) area and the top for windows of the residence to the west ( top of screen minimum RL 60.9). Screen to be constructed of lapped and capped timber or Perspex to architects detail.

 

·          All windows to be constructed using minimum 4mm thick glass with perimeter acoustic seals.

 

·          Noise from any new mechanical services (air-conditioners, kitchen exhaust fan or similar) should comply with the acoustic requirements of the EPA industrial Noise Policy (intrusiveness and Amenity Criteria) Detailed review of new plan items should be undertaken at Construction certificate stage, once plant items are selected and locations determined. Noise from plant will be designed to be compliant with a “Background +0) acoustic criteria (which is 5dB (A) stricter than EPA guidelines). In doing this, the cumulative noise contribution from mechanical plant will not significantly add to any noise created by children in the play grounds. Compliance with this design goal is achievable.

 

·          The proposed air conditioner condenser is to be located within the new garage. The building shell should screen noise to the nearest residence (to the west) and should be more than 25m from the nearest residence with line of site of the condenser (to the south, across Moverly Road).

 

·          The bathroom ventilation is to be provided via Small Ceiling Mounted fans (55i/s discharging thought the roof. Use of 1m of flex ducting between the fan and discharge point should ensure compliance with noise emission criteria.

Additional condition is added to read as follows:

 

(83.a) The upper outdoor play area is to be used by no more than 16 children at any one time. This area is only to be used for “passive “non ambulatory play” (acceptable activities to include reading/painting/craft or other closely supervised activities)

 

Amend Condition No. 85 to read:

(85.)   No amplified music is to be played in the premises, music is to be provided using a portable stereo.

 

Additional condition is added to read as follows;

 

(85.a) Music is to be used as background music only (no more than 70dB (A) at 3m from the stereo).

 

(85.b)    No music is to be played in the upper outdoor play area.

 

Add Condition No. 95 to read:

(95.)  A validation report must be obtained from a suitably qualified and experienced consultant in acoustics three (3) month after the business commences trading.

The report is to be forwarded to and approved by Council. This report must address (but not limited to) the accumulation effect of mechanical plant and equipment and noise generated from all children playing in the upper and lower outdoor play areas simultaneously and the noise generated from 46 children playing in the lower outdoor play area. Any recommendations outlined in the acoustic report are to be implemented accordingly.

RESOLUTION: (Stavrinos/Roberts) that Council:

 

a)     note the article in the Sydney Morning Herald published on 24 January 2014         titled "welcome to Sydney's new million-dollar suburbs";

c)     note the adverse negative social impacts caused by housing un-affordability,         including the inability for lower paid workers such as nurses, school teachers,         child-care workers, social workers and emergency services workers, to live in         our local area and therefore close to where they work;

f)     note the adverse negative infrastructure impacts caused by the need for these         workers to commute to their work, such as the impact on public transport         provision;

 

g)     note that Randwick City Council has a number of housing affordability initiatives         and policies such as the Joint Venture with NSW Housing in Minneapolis         Crescent, Maroubra and the collection of developer funds and land   dedication         (via S.94) and voluntary planning agreements;

i)      bring back a report on additional ways in which Council can help address the         housing affordability crisis in the Randwick local government area without the         need for UAP’s.
