RESOLUTION: (Mayor, Cr S Nash) that Council:
1. note the content of this Mayoral Minute;
2. note the extensive history of community consultation in relation to the issues the subject of the Development Agreement;
3. note the significant additional benefits it will enjoy by entering into the Development Agreement including, amongst other things:
a. acquisition (with no public auction or tender) of the Rainbow Street site from TfNSW at market value assessed as at the date of the Development Agreement;
b. TfNSW will need to consider relocating the Randwick interchange to High Street (and to modify the planning approval to reflect the alternative location);
c. tree management processes which minimise potential for loss of trees; and
d. provision of parking on Anzac Parade, in Kensington, during non-peak periods.
4. enter into the Development Agreement with TfNSW in the form circulated on 26 August 2014, subject to the Acting General Manager being authorised to negotiate minor typographical and other amendments or to settle any legal drafting issues outstanding prior to execution.
BE AND IS HEREBY RESCINDED.
If the Rescission Motion is carried, it is intended to move the following motion:
That, noting the advice received, that there is no urgency to conclude the Development Agreement with TfNSW and in response to community concern about the High Cross Park terminus and High Street route, Council consult with the Randwick community on the proposed Light Rail route along High Street to High Cross Park, including the High Cross Park Terminus, for the section along High Street east of Botany Street to the terminus with such consultation to conclude within 6 weeks before the Development Agreement is brought back to council.
