    1.1 PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT (24 UNITS) AT NO. 128 LOCKSLEY ROAD, EAGLEMONT

    Author: Una McCafferkey - Development Planner, City Development

    Ward: Griffin

    File: P1169/2013

    SUMMARY

    A petition with 153 signatures has been received seeking the refusal of the application for a planning permit for an apartment building at 128 Locksley Road, Eaglemont.

    The petition prayer is as follows: We the undersigned, residents and ratepayers of Banyule City wish to bring to the attention of Council:

    Our Petition is against the proposed development at 128 Locksley Road, Eaglemont for the construction of a three storey apartment building (24 dwellings) with basement car parking; and, vegetation removal planning permit application number P1169/2013.

    We therefore request Banyule Council to:

    Refuse permit due to size, depth, width, height and massing, not enough car parking, visually overbearing effect, loss of privacy, traffic impact issues, safety to pedestrians and cyclists and would be out of keeping with the design and character of the street scope.

    The petition has been received from residents primarily from Eaglemont, Ivanhoe and surrounding suburbs including Ivanhoe East, Bellfield, Alphington and Heidelberg. A small number of other petitioners reside further afield at Doncaster and Mill Park.

    OFFICER COMMENT

    A detailed assessment of the application against the relevant sections of the Banyule Planning scheme will be undertaken in due course by Council Officers.

    RECOMMENDATION

    That:

    1. Council receives and notes the petition.

    2. Concerns raised in the petition be considered by Officers in assessing the merits of the application.

    3. The primary petitioner is advised accordingly.

    2.1 AUSTRALIAN MADE, AUSTRALIAN GROWN CAMPAIGN MEMBERSHIP

    Author: Ben Smith - Economic Development CoOrdinator, City Development

    File: F2014/300

    SUMMARY

    This report explores the opportunity for Council membership of the Australian Made Australian Grown (AMAG) campaign.

    OFFICER DECLARATION OF CONFLICT OF INTEREST

    Section 80C of the Local Government Act 1989 requires members of Council staff, and persons engaged under contract to provide advice to Council, to disclose any direct or indirect interest in a matter to which the advice relates. Council officers involved in the preparation of this report have no conflict of interest in this matter.

    CITY PLAN

    This report is in line with Councils City Plan key direction (1.5) to support people to achieve their economic potential.

    BACKGROUND

    The Australian Made Australian Grown (AMAG) logo was introduced as a certification trademark by the Federal Government in 1986. Its associated green and gold logo is synonymous with Australian made goods. Since 1999 the initiative has been administered and promoted by the Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL), an independent not for profit organisation that seeks to promote Australian products and produce. AMCL does this under a formal agreement with the Federal Government. The AMAG Campaign Supporter partnerships were introduced to enable Local Government bodies to access the AMAG logo. The AMCL has periodically sent requests to Council to offer campaign membership. The campaign currently has 12 Campaign supporters in Victoria, most of which are concentrated in Melbournes north including the Councils of Darebin, Moreland, Whittlesea, Yarra and Hume. At Councils Ordinary Meeting on 3 February 2014 a resolution was passed (CO2014/11) That Council: 1. Commits to utilise Australian manufacturers and service providers where

    practicable as our way of supporting Australian jobs in a time of increasing global uncertainty

    2. Explores the opportunity to become a supporter of the Australian Made Australia Grown (AMAG) campaign

    3. Considers a future report about the anticipated benefits of membership and implications for Councils resource allocation for economic development activity

    4. Considers any resource implications for becoming an AMAG supporter in the 2014/2015 budget process.
