(DA/38/2013)

Note: Councillor Browne declared a less than significant non-pecuniary interest in this Item under Clause 51A of Councilís Code of Meeting Practice (see Declarations of Interest in these Minutes).† The nature of interest was addressed in a statement made by Councillor Browne as follows:

ďMr Mayor,

I speak in respect of Item 13 on tonightís Agenda being a Development Application for a residential flat building at Wongala Crescent and Chapman Avenue, Beecroft.

As Councillors would be aware, this matter came before Council at its October 2013 General Meeting.† Unbeknown to me prior to it happening, a relative of mine spoke in opposition to the proposed development.† The relative is a cousin whom I rarely speak to or see and I have not had any contact with this person in relation to this matter.† The relative does not reside adjacent to or opposite the subject property, but lives quite a number of building blocks away in the same street.

Given that I was not expecting my relativeís presence at the Meeting, it did not immediately occur to me that I may have a conflict in respect of the matter.† Whilst I do not believe that any measurable conflict does arise, upon reflection it occurs to me that there may be a perception that a conflict could arise.

Accordingly, I would like to:

1.                          Apologise to Council for not recognising a perceived conflict at the October meeting; and

2.                          Declare a non-pecuniary, less than significant interest in respect of Item 13.

Whilst I believe that if I remained in the Chamber I could impartially debate and vote on the Item, so as to remove any perception of any form of bias, I will leave the Meeting for the period that this Item is being debated and voted upon.Ē

Councillor Browne left the Meeting and was not present for consideration of, or voting on, this Item.

 

Mr Dave Wilson, on behalf of the Residents of Chapman Avenue, addressed Council regarding this item.

Ms Natalia Hale, of Beecroft, addressed Council regarding this item.

Mr Albert Becerra, on behalf of the applicant, addressed Council regarding this item.

 

RESOLVED ON THE MOTION OF COUNCILLOR HUTCHENCE, seconded by COUNCILLOR COX,

THAT Development Application No. DA/38/2013 for demolition of existing buildings and construction of two, five storey residential flat buildings containing 36 dwellings and strata subdivision at Lot 2 DP 133462 and Lots 1, 2 and 3 DP 1008775, Nos. 25, 27 and 27A Wongala Crescent and No. 1A Chapman Avenue, Beecroft be approved subject to the conditions of consent detailed in Schedule 1 of Group Managerís Report No. PL122/13 and the following additional condition of consent:
