"Referred for: Objections from adjoining landowners

The site is located on the northern side of Forest Road, three (3) doors west from the intersection of Boronia Parade. The land falls left to right and to the street.

Development consent No. 285/95 for a detached dual occupancy dwelling at the rear of the site was granted by Council at its Meeting on 13th December, 1995. Building approval No. 65/96 was subsequently issued by Council under delegated authority on 15th March, 1996.

The applicant has now lodged a new building application to Council for the following amendments to the original building approval:-

1. Installation of internal staircase, garage and laundry windows and relocation of laundry at lower floor level.

2. Installation of a bay window to front elevation, relocation of kitchen and dining room and extension to entry patio at ground floor level.

3. Provision of ensuite and alteration to the roof design including installation
of dormer windows in front and side elevations at upper floor level.

An inspection of the site was carried out on 25th June, 1996 following submission of the building application which revealed that the framework had been constructed and other works completed not in accordance with the original approval. Instructions were given to the owner to cease work on those portions of the dwelling and submit accurate plans to Council for its consideration.

The application was notified to adjoining landowners and three (3) written submissions were received. The grounds of objection are summarised below:- RECOMMENDATION:
14. GS570
15. GS751
16. GS771 (front patio)
17. GS840 (285/95, 20/12/95)
18. GS1160
19. RD040 (675mm)
20. RD260
21. An agricultural drain must be provided at the garage
level to prevent the ingress of water into the laundry
and garage.
22. All stormwater shall be drained to the street gutter in
Forest Road in accordance with the hydraulic
details plan prepared by John Rafeletos Consulting
Engineers, dated 23/1/96.
23. The 1.0m wide drainage easement provided to
benefit the lands adjoining the rear boundary
known as 1015A Forest Road is to be registered
prior to occupation of the dwelling. 2. FURTHER, THAT the adjoining landowners be advised of

06.05.02 PIGEON CONTROL PROPOSAL - WAR MEMORIAL AREA, FOREST ROAD, HURSTVILLE (Report by Manager - Environmental Services, Mr P Chrystal) (File E/00047)



Council is in receipt of written and verbal complaints concerning a nuisance being caused by flocks of pigeons within the Forest Road main shopping district. Patrols by Council's Environmental Health and Buildings Surveyors have confirmed that pigeons are territorialising the footpath and surrounding awnings within the shopping area.

Nuisances associated with pigeons include the defacing of buildings, structures and footpaths and a reduction in the general amenity and aesthetic pleasure of the area. Additionally, pigeons can transmit diseases to the human population such as TB, lice and other fungal diseases.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service of NSW considers pigeons to be a feral species and raises no objections to a humane eradication program. Similarly the RSPCA raises no objection to such a program, especially where numbers of birds are recognised as excessive. Written advice confirming this status is available.

The control of feral birdlife is difficult and contentious. There are markedly different public perceptions to this control of feral birds, however the well documented public health risk associated with flocks of pigeons warrants Council's intervention. Any necessary trapping will be conducted during the early morning hours to limit any inconvenience to passers-by and to avert any adverse public reactions.

Westfields at Hurstville is currently undertaking its own Bird Control program, as does the Supercentre. Their program is into its second year and will be on-going as Westfields has identified reduction in pigeon numbers as an important feature for customer satisfaction.

Enquiries have been made to bird control service companies for advice on costs to undertake an initial bird trapping program followed by a more comprehensive on-going maintenance program.

The estimated costs for pigeon control in the Hurstville central business district are as follows:-

12 week Trapping Prorgram $4,000
12 month Guarantee $10,000
5 year Guarantee $35,000

Over a five year period, and based on the above figures, the annual cost to Council to maintain the CBD free from pigeons will be $8,000.

Other councils within the St George district have used similar controls and enquiries with those councils indicate that the pest companies provide a very satisfactory service with identified improvements in bird nuisance reduction.

No funds have been allowed in the 1996/97 financial plan for these works and monies will need to be voted from Working Funds if Council wants to immediately implement these controls.

The pigeons in Hurstville CBD are known to be a nuisance and are the subject of complaints to Council from the community. On this basis, it is recommended funds be made available to implement a pigeon control program.

RECOMMENDATION


No. 49023-000 from Working Funds to implement pigeon
control works.

2. THAT quotations be called from bird control service companies
to undertake a pigeon trapping program in the Hurstville
central business district and the General Manager be
delegated authority to approve the most suitable quotation.
