3       (A)    Public Question Time and Receiving of Public Statements

The following is a summary of questions and submissions received and responses provided at the meeting. This is not a verbatim record of comments made at the meeting.

 

1.         Milenko Kovac of Leederville – Item 9.2

·                Owner of property in Byron Street, Leederville.

·                Spoke against the recommendation.

·                Spoke against the proposed setback, overshadowing and privacy issues.

·                Stated that he has built nine houses in the City of Vincent and feels the City’s Planning Department has become too relaxed with planning rules.

The Presiding Member Mayor Emma Cole thanked Mr Kovac for his comments.


 

2.         Peter Zaikos of South Perth – Item 10.1

·                Owner of the building immediately to the south of the North Perth Common.

·                Spoke against the size and positioning of the trees chosen and stated that they are a hazard with powerlines above, will not provide shade to users, will cause an obstruction to pedestrians and wheelchair users and will result in costly maintenance.

·                Requested Council resolve to replace trees with smaller trees, closer to grassed area and seating to provide amenity without need for costly pruning and that will not have to be replaced when the power goes underground.

The Presiding Member Mayor Emma Cole thanked Mr Zaikos for his comments.

 

3.         Neil Roberts of North Perth – Item 9.5

·                Spoke in favour of the recommendation to amend the approved material of the privacy screens.

·                Stated that neighbours also support the development.

·                Stated that builder has not shown due regard to proper process and neighbours on the basis that if there is to be support for infill in Vincent it is critical that builders are held to account.

·                Requests that, more broadly, Council give consideration to the 1.7m height limit (rather than that specified in the R Codes) as this provides more privacy.

7.1     Survey of public participation at Council Meetings – live streaming

The City is proposing to include live streaming of the standing items ‘Public Question Time and Receiving of Public Statements’ and ‘The Receiving of Petitions, Deputations and Presentations’ at its Council Briefings and Ordinary Meetings of Council.  Live streaming currently captures all parts of the meetings, except confidential matters, public questions and statements and deputations.  The City is considering extending live streaming to include ‘Public Question Time and Receiving of Public Statements’ and ‘The Receiving of Petitions, Deputations and Presentations’.

 

Mayor Cole advised the Gallery that a short survey is available this evening and will be available on the City’s website for a number of months and encouraged the public to participate in the survey.

7.2     2019 Greening Vincent Garden competition

The 2019 Greening Vincent garden competition is open for entries. There is a category to suit all gardens and all gardeners from small balcony, indoor or courtyard gardens, the popular verge garden and even business gardens. Entries close 4 October and judging will take place between 7 – 12 October. All participants are invited to the awards night that will take place on Wednesday 13 November.  Mayor Cole encouraged the community to participate.

7.3     Public release of the Chief Executive Officer’s performance indicators

The Chief Executive Officer’s Key Performance Indicators will be released publicly as part of the City’s ongoing transparency initiative and to let ratepayers know of the key focus areas for the coming year.

7.4     2019 Ordinary Elections

Candidates have been announced in the 2019 City of Vincent Local Government elections, to be held this October.  Mayor Emma Cole ran unopposed and will return as the Mayor of Vincent for another four years.

 

There were two candidates for the north ward who will fill the two vacant positions, current Councillor Dan Loden and Sally Smith.  Congratulations to the successful candidates.

 

For the two positions in the south ward, a postal vote will be undertaken for the six candidates.

7.5     Brisbane Street carpark urban forest project

The City is turning the Brisbane Street car park into an urban forest by planting 71 additional trees and remaking the garden beds with a water sensitive design that harvests the rainwater runoff from the carpark.  The timely upgrade to the carpark presented a great opportunity for Vincent to try a new approach. This is a smarter and more environmentally friendly design that boosts our tree canopy cover (60% canopy coverage when the new trees grow to maturity).
