Subject:             Support for the establishment of a new Public High School in the Eastern Suburbs

Folder No:                   F2015/00460

Introduction

 

A request has been received from CLOSEast who are a local group of parents advocating for the provision of a new public co-educational high school in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

 

Issues

 

CLOSEast recently contacted the Office of the Mayor requesting support for their campaign to advocate for a new high school in the eastern suburbs. Due to the planned increase in housing density in the eastern suburbs of Sydney to 2036 as identified in the Greater Sydney District Plan for our region, the group is concerned that there will be a shortfall in funding and places available in public schooling for future residents. 

 

CLOSEast has been in contact with both Waverley and Woollahra Councils who have shown their support for the group by adopting motions at their council meetings in late 2017.

 

Financial impact statement

 

There is no direct financial impact for this matter.

 

Conclusion

 

On the basis that there is a proposed increase in housing density as outlined in the Greater Sydney District Plan for our region, I seek the support of my fellow Councillors to join Waverley and Woollahra Councils in supporting CLOSEast on their advocacy for a new public high school in the eastern suburbs.

 

 

Recommendation

That:

 

1.  Council supports CLOSEast in advocating for a new high school in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

 

2.  Council write to CLOSEast informing them of the intention to support their project.

Mayoral Minute No. MM19/18

 

Subject:             Implementation of an e-waste micro-factory in Randwick City

Folder No:                   F2008/00454

Author:                   The Mayor, Cr Lindsay Shurey      

 

Introduction

 

I recently attended the launch of the e-waste micro-factory alongside the Minister for the Environment, Gabrielle Upton and Ian Kiernan from Clean Up Australia at the UNSW Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) Centre on the 4th April 2018. The micro-factory is a facility that takes hazardous waste materials and transforms them into usable products.

 

Issues

 

The e-waste micro-factory has developed technology that will be able to safely transform hazardous domestic and industrial e-waste into valuable metal alloys, silicon carbon nanoparticles and plastics for 3D printing, via customisable modular factories.

 

In addition, UNSW’s patented ‘green manufacturing’ micro-factory takes waste glass, timbers and plastics that councils collect every day and turns them into saleable products. The SMART centre is looking at ways to embed these facilities into the community so that e-waste can be transformed on a larger scale reducing the amount that goes to landfill.

 

Financial impact statement

 

There is no direct financial impact for this matter.

 

Conclusion

 

On the basis that Randwick City Council is a leader in the community and is focused on initiatives to care for the environment, I seek your support in determining if council is able to support new environmental initiatives such as the e-waste micro-factory.

 

Recommendation

 

That a report be brought back to Council determining the feasibility of establishing and operating an e-waste micro-factory in the Randwick City LGA.

Mayoral Minute No. MM20/18

 

Subject:             Waiver of fees for Maroubra Swimming Club to to hold four Carnivals in 2018 at the Des Renford Leisure Centre

Folder No:                   F2006/00108

Author:                   The Mayor, Cr Lindsay Shurey      

 

Introduction

 

Council has received a request for assistance from Mr Martin Connolly, Club Secretary of the Maroubra Swimming Club, who is staging four swimming events at Des Renford Leisure Centre in the remainder of 2018. 

 

Issues

 

Annually Maroubra Swimming Club hold a number of events at the Des Renford Leisure Centre which attracted a large volume of swimmers from swim clubs from around the state. These events are the major fund raiser source for the club with all funds raised utilized by the club for its ongoing operations throughout the year.

They have requested that Council waive the fees to assist in improving the profitability of the events. An assessment of the applicable fees to be waived are as follows:

 

        Pool Hire Fee            $  870.00 per event for the Indoor Competition Pool (3)

                                      $1080.00 per event for the outdoor Olympic Pool (1)

 

                   TOTAL:            $  3,690.00

 

Des Renford Leisure Centre received spectator fees for all non participants and increased kiosk sales on the day.

 

Financial impact statement

 

In the event that Council accepts the report recommendation, the direct financial implication to Council will be $3,690 which will be funded from the 2017-18 Council Contingency Fund.

 

Conclusion

 

The Maroubra Swimming Club Carnivals are a worthwhile local event which provides income to Des Renford Leisure Centre in the form of ‘secondary’ spend and entrance fees for spectators. This event is an opportunity for swimmers to compete against their peers, raise funds for the Club and provide ‘secondary spend’ income to the facility. It is considered that Council should support this request from Mr Connolly to waive the fees to hire the Des Renford Leisure Centre to the value of $3,690 to assist in raising funds for the Maroubra Swimming Club.

 

Recommendation

 

That:

 

a)  Council vote $3,690 from the 2017-18 Council Contingency Fund to cover the hire fees for the Des Renford Leisure Centre to assist in raising funds for the Maroubra Swimming Club.

 

b)  The organiser undertake to appropriately and prominently acknowledge and  promote Council’s contribution to Club members.
