C0318 Item 18    Notice of Motion: Marion Street Cottages

Motion: (Porteous/Da Cruz)

 

THAT:

 

1.    Council conducts an independent legal review of the planning decision to demolish the buildings at 9 and 11 Marion St Leichhardt for the following reasons:

a)    Council notes that Council officers have refused to answer Councillors questions regarding the validity of Council's approval of the demolition of the Marion St cottages under the relevant planning regulations;

b)    Council staff have informed Councillors that no document which records the authorisation of the demolition decision exists;

c)    The review of environmental factors did not take into account the aboriginal art present on the buildings;

2.    Council undertake an independent governance review of Council decision making with regard to the demolition of the cottages at 9 and 11 Marion St Leichhardt for the following reasons:

a)    There is no written record of approval by the Council. Whether the approval was legally valid or not proper governance requires an written authorisation by a person who had the appropriate level of delegated authority and who declared in writing that they had taken into account the matters prescribed by law that had to be considered. 

b)    The Consultants have been provided with limited information on the history of plans for the cottages and are relying on a 2006 Masterplan which has been overridden on many occasions by more recent resolutions of council. They were not, for example, made aware of the fact that Leichhardt Council had allocated into their 2012/2013 budget 2.1 million to retain the cottages and convert them to a community centre for young people. Why was the 2012/13 information not provided to the consultants?

c)    Council staff acted on a 2006 masterplan and ignored later 2012/13 decision which provided a budget to retain the cottages. The review should establish what was the ost recent decision of Council regarding the future of the cottages and if that was complied with by Council staff.
