September 2015

Photo recently posted on Council’s Facebook page about special matting placed on the beach to enable wheelchair users to access the water.

The Holey Belt is an affordable option on certain sites like our network of boat ramps including quiet coastal bays. An option is to combine this with a disability wheel chair at each surf club. We have started this with chairs at Mollymook & Culburra. The size of the Shoalhaven and limited resourcing makes achieving an equitable result very challenging. Cost is the main consideration to roll out of more mats. Coast and Estuaries are reviewing the need for matting and will keep the SACC advised of progress.

Holiday Haven have installed a Holey Belt access at Huskisson Resort Following the gift of a beach wheelchair. Callala Beach community has requested upgrade of equitable access at the Callala Beach

Ramp.

 

Ray Massie advised he is waiting for confirmation from Greg Westlake for the meeting to go ahead, there have been large ocean swells which have changed the shape of beaches.

He is in the process of determining how to respond.

 

Residents at Callala Beach indicated that they would like a beach wheelchair.  There is not a city wide plan at this time.

 

Report back in regards to Callala Beach Status.

GENERAL BUSINESS

4.            Additional Item – Opportunity Council Planning For Accessible Access Points for Beaches           File 

 

Clr Tribe advised it is better to look at a whole city wide approach.

 

There is a need to differentiate between independent access or assisted access in wheelchairs.  It is preferred to have independent access.

 

Colin Wood suggested looking at main beaches close to tourist points first.

Members thought that a gold standard should be sought first.  Disabled access is required to be dignified.

 

Clr Tribe advised she would like to see equity across the Shoalhaven.

 

The Committee was advised to consider the most cost effective approach that is beaches that have some access initially rather than no access to begin with.  From there a Policy could be created for any new access points that are built.

 

Colin Wood advised there will be some beaches that the “gold standard” is unattainable e.g.  The beaches that are highly active and have sand being moved, the access has to be maintained by a volunteer.

 

The wheelchair access mats at Mollymook Beach are not adequate as you cannot push a chair on it.  It was advised this is due to the compacting of the sand being problematic there and a number of considerations need to be taken into account.

 

Ray Massie advised that if the Access is to the water and not access to the beach is difficult as the water changes day to day and therefore the shape of a beach changes.  The ocean boat ramps design structure for access boats and cars could possibly be used for wheelchairs.  From an asset management view that is the only view that has access into water with resources for example space, maintenance, parking and toilet blocks that are all continually upgraded to the current standards.  These are clusters of facilities that would suit everybody.

 

Colin Wood suggested the following way forward:

Step 1 – Conduct a survey

Step 2 – From the carpark to a view point of the beach and access to the accessible facility Step 3 – The terrain along the beach and the access be addressed e.g. which different mats - underlay and permanent? or if a mat is placed down as required?

Colin restated it is best to have a holistic approach throughout the city area, concentrating on one north, one central and one south first.

 

Note: Helen Waterhouse arrived, the time being 4.30pm.

 

It was advised that the Return 2 Sport Association a reintroducing people with disabilities into various sports, they are coming up with ideas worldwide and new innovations.

 

Colin Wood suggested that patrolled beaches and working with patrolled times could be a starting point, in case of trouble situations.

 

MOTION:                                                                                                 Moved: Consent

 

RECOMMENDED that Council do an initial audit on Greenwell Point, Huskisson, Mollymook Beaches and Callala Bay in regards to establishing accessible access points and consult with the Disabled Surfers Association (Gerroa).

 

CARRIED

5.            Additional Item – Garside Road Mollymook Beach Footpath                                    File 

 

Clr White advised that Council is currently looking at the grade of Mitchell Pde, Tallwood Ave and Bannister Head Road.  As the footpath needs to around the round about it will not be on Gardside Rd Mollymook Beach.  The footpath of Tallwood Ave Mollymook Beach is coming.

6.            Additional Item – Scenic Drive Nowra Footpath                                                         File 

 

Nola Stephens advised that the footpath that starts in Bridge Rd along Scenic Dr towards the pool area up to the hospital is significantly high and therefore is not possible to access in wheelchairs on the left hand side of Bridge Rd, under the bridge is the only way which is the longer way around.

 

MOTION:                                                                                                 Moved: Consent

 

RECOMMENDED that footpath access be improved along scenic drive, Nowra from Bridge Rd towards the pool area up to the hospital.

 

CARRIED

7.            Additional Item - Disability Inclusion Action Plan                                                        File 

 

        #  Alan Blackshaw provided flyers on the Disability Inclusion Action Plan that Shoalhaven City Council is developing.  Council has engaged a consultant, Jenny Bray.  Jenny Bray has been visiting formal organisations and groups.  Shoalhaven City Council will be conducting workshops with members of the community to gain ideas of what should be included in the Disability Inclusion Action Plan.  How do we make things as inclusive as possible?

 

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan will hopefully be finalised by November 2016.

 

Jenny Bray has advised Helen Waterhouse that she does want to meet with the Shoalhaven Access Advisory Committee, potentially at the end of August.

 

Drafts of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan will be distributed to the Shoalhaven Access Advisory Committee so that members are kept up to date as they come in.

 

        #  Helen Waterhouse advised there is a Tourism Workshop also being provided to the Community and Tourism have advised Helen Waterhouse that they are seeking a wide selection of people to attend.  Helen will attach to the minutes further information.

 

MOTION:                                                                                                 Moved: Consent

SAA16.2     Clarification - Accessible parking: Car Parking Code and Australian Standard

 

HPERM Ref:      D16/315238

 

Group:                Planning & Development Services Group

Officer:               Gordon Clark - Strategic Planning Manager

 

    

 

Purpose / Summary

Provide clarification advice on Shoalhaven Development Control Plan 2014 (DCP 2014) and Australian Standard AS2890 car parking provisions for people with a disability in response to the Shoalhaven Access Advisory Committee (Committee) recommendations of 27 July 2016.

 

 

Recommendation (Item to be determined under delegated authority)

That:

1.    The Shoalhaven Access Advisory Committee receive this report for information, clarifying the Shoalhaven Development Control Plan 2014 (DCP 2014) and AS2890 provisions relating to car parking provisions for people with a disability.

2.    Review and revise the relevant provisions in Chapter G21 (Car parking and traffic) as part of proposed Amendment No.8 to DCP 2014. 

 

Options

1.    Accept this report for information and request Council to review the relevant provisions in Chapter G21 of DCP 2014.

2.    Accept this report for information.

Implications: This option will result in ongoing confusion between the provisions in DCP 2014 and AS2890

Background

At the Shoalhaven Access Advisory Committee (Committee) meeting on 27 July 2016, Arthur Ball enquired whether there was a reason that the Development Control Plan (DCP) Car Parking Code and the Australian Standard for Car Parking were not aligned (Item 9).  The Committee resolved that a report be brought back on the progress of the review of DCP 18: Car Parking Codes.

 

Further, it was clarified that Mr Ball would like to see the AS2890 principal of a shared space between designated accessible parking bays (even if it were only 1200mm or 1500mm) adopted.

Terminology

 

To clarify the terminology of the resolution, the term ‘Car Parking Codes’ refers to the provisions of Chapter G21: Car Parking and Traffic of DCP 2014.  Chapter G21 is generally based on the previous standalone DCP 18: Car Parking Code.

 

DCP 2014 was prepared to meet the requirements of the planning reforms, initiated by the NSW Government in 2006.  The reforms resulted in amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 whereby only one development control plan (DCP) could apply to an area of land.  As a result, over 100 existing DCPs were incorporated into a single citywide DCP and the individual plans subsequently rescinded.  DCP 18 was one of these DCPs.

 

Further, reference to the term ‘standard’ in the 27 July 2016 Committee agenda refers to Australian Standard AS2890: Parking Facilities.

 

Australian Standard AS2890 and DCP 2014

 

On 28 March 2006, Council resolved:

 

a)         Where an applicant submits a proposal for off street car parking based on the Australian Standard AS 2890 and can submit supporting justification, the proposal can be assessed against that standard in lieu of Part 2.2 of DCP 18. 

 

b)         That in the review of DCP 18, in conjunction with preparing a single Shoalhaven DCP as required by amendments to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, consideration be given to inserting the standards in Australian Standard AS 2890 for car parking layout.

 

Although part (a) was the adopted position of Council and was used in the assessment of development applications, the resolution was not actioned completely until the Stage 1 Housekeeping Amendments to SCP 2014 was made effective on 1 July 2015. As part of this amendment, a new acceptable solution was included in DCP 2014 Chapter G21 to formalise the long held position that a proposed parking layout could be designed in accordance with AS2890 or the provisions in DCP 2014 Chapter G21.  Should AS2890 be chosen, adequate justification would be required as part of the application. 

 

Figure 2 in DCP 2014 Chapter G21 identifies that a disabled parking space is to have a minimum width of 3.2m as reproduced in Figure 1 below. 

 

 

3.   Figure 1: Disabled parking requirement in Chapter G21 (Figure 2)

 

AS2890 prescribes that a disabled parking space is to have a minimum width of 2.4m with an additional 2.4m shared area between spaces for circulation as shown in Figure 2 below. 

 

 

4.   Figure 2: Disabled parking requirement in AS2890

 

This is the basis for acceptable solution A12.4 in DCP 2014 Chapter G21:

Spaces should have a minimum dimension of 3.6m width and length of 5.5m (see Figure 9 below).

DCP 2014 Chapter G21 Figure 9 (reproduced in Figure 3 below), is an adaptation of AS2890.  It seeks to demonstrate a solution whereby the 2.4m disabled parking space is provided with an additional 1.2m provided for circulation (essentially half of the afore mentioned ‘shared area’ of AS2890) resulting in a disabled parking space with a width of 3.6m (see Figure 4). 

 

5.   Figure 3: Disabled parking requirement in Chapter G21 based on AS2890 principles (note the vehicle in this image is an example of vehicle placement in the space disabled space to its left).

Figure 4: Breakdown of disabled parking requirement in Chapter G21

 

In essence, Council’s disabled parking provisions (Figure 3 above, Figure 9 in DCP 2014 Chapter G21) align with the intent of AS2890 and is considered a good accessible design outcome.  Should an application seek to fully comply with the AS2890 design outlined in Figure 2, this would be assessed on its merit.  The disabled parking provision in Figure 9 of DCP 2014 Chapter G21 (see also DCP 2014 Chapter G21 acceptable solution A12.4), is consistent with AS2890 and appears to address Mr Ball’s concern in this regard. 

 

It is acknowledged that the disabled parking provision in Figure 1 above (Figure 2 in DCP 2014 Chapter G21) is less than that prescribed in AS2890.  There is merit in reviewing the content of DCP 2014 Chapter G21 Sections 5.3 ‘Parking Layout and Dimensions’ and 5.8 ‘Drivers with a Disability’, to ensure a consistent approach to car parking for people with a disability.

 

DCP 2014 Chapter G21 – Review Progress

 

Council resolved in June 2015 to commence work on multiple amendments to DCP 2014.  Proposed Amendment 8 to DCP 2014 includes a review of Chapter G21 focusing of the following matters:

·    Review rates in the car parking schedule (commercial premises, holiday cabins, serviced apartments, outdoor eating areas, special industrial, professional consulting rooms, veterinary surgery, medical centres and educational establishments).

·    Insert mapping specifying the new car parking provisions required under the Apartment Design Guide (State Environmental Planning Policy 65).

 

A review of Sections 5.3 and 5.8 of DCP 2014 Chapter G21 could form part of this review.  Amendment 8 is anticipated to commence by the end of 2016.

 

Community Engagement

Any proposed amendment to DCP 2014 will be advertised for a minimum of 28 days as required by legislation.

 

Financial Implications

There are no immediate financial implications for Council.  Costs associated with reviewing and amending DCP 2014 are managed within Council’s existing Strategic Planning budget.
