Draft Ballina Shire Roads Contributions Plan Version 4.2

Ballina Shire Council is seeking feedback on the Draft Ballina Roads Contribution Plan Version 4.2.

Draft Version 4.2 incorporates the Barlows Road Link between West Ballina and Cumbalum, and associated adjustments in the contribution plan works schedule, contribution rates and other minor amendments.

Submissions close: Wednesday 30 June 2021

Enquiries: Patrick Knight, Civil Services Group, Ph 6686 1447

This notice is given in accordance with Clause 28 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000. The Draft Ballina Roads Contribution Plan Version 4.2 will be on exhibition from 2 June until 30 June 2021. It is proposed that this version will repeal and replace the current version being Ballina Shire Roads Contribution Plan Version 4.1.

Ballina Shire Council has proposed amendments to the Ballina Shire Roads Contribution Plan to incorporate the Barlows Road Link.

The Barlows Road Link would create a direct route between West Ballina and North Ballina, enabling motorists to bypass Kerr Street and Ballina town centre. 

Location of Works

The link is estimated to cost $7.8 million, with 64.5% of the cost covered by development contributions and the remainder through Council’s Long Term Financial Plan from loan funds and internal reserves.

A net reduction in the cost of works to be constructed under the Draft Roads Contribution Plan would result in a corresponding decrease in developer contributions. On a typical subdivision lot the roads contribution would decrease from $12,704 to $12,432.

In the short term (2020s), the Barlows Road Link would provide major improvements to the road network. It would reduce trip times (in flood free periods) between West Ballina and North Ballina by transferring traffic from congested sections of Tamarind Drive, Bangalow Road and Kerr Street. 

In the longer term (2036), the Barlows Road Link would reduce trip times between West Ballina and North Ballina while also taking some traffic from the future Western Arterial, possibly providing scope to defer this project by some years. It would also enable part of the works planned for Tamarind Drive between Flathead Lane and North Creek Road (Item 40 on the attached map) to be removed from the roads contribution plan works program, saving an estimated $8 million.

However, a negative impact could be increased traffic on Horizon Drive and River Street in West Ballina. Submissions received during the exhibition period of the Roads Contribution Plan will be reported to the July Council meeting. This report will also include configuration options to negate additional traffic on Horizon Drive and minimise the impact on residents.  

Traffic consultants Cardno Qld were engaged by Council in 2021 to model the impacts of building the Barlows Road Link.

In 2015, they modelled the Ballina Shire road network with predicted 2036 traffic volumes. They used this model to predict the usage of the Barlows Road Link.

Two model scenarios were run: 

  • Scenario One – Inserting the Barlows Road link into the model of 2036 traffic volumes, travelling on the existing road network before any planned extra links (such as the Western Arterial).
  • Scenario Two – Inserting the Barlows Road link into the model of 2036 traffic volumes, travelling on a road network where all planned upgrades (including Western Arterial) are completed.

The traffic modelling for these two scenarios is represented in the following two diagrams. 

The predicted volumes (in vehicles per day – vpd) are shown in black text and predicted traffic volumes without the Barlows Road link are highlighted in bold red text.

Scenario One - Barlows Road Link, 2036 traffic volumes on existing road network 

 

Scenario Two - Barlows Road Link, 2036 traffic volumes with upgraded road network

Scenario One 

This scenario involves the construction of Barlows Road, without additional network links (such as the Western Arterial and North Creek Bridge) being constructed. This scenario found that in the medium term:

  • Barlows Road link would convey around 9,077 vehicles per day (vpd) in 2024, (9,985 vpd 2036). This is a significant volume of traffic.
  • Tamarind Drive daily traffic between Flathead Lane and North Creek Road would reduce by around 10% and reduce 22% between North Creek Road and Kerr Street. 
  • Kerr Street daily traffic would reduce by around 30%.
  • Bangalow Road daily traffic would drop by around 9%.
  • River Street daily traffic would increase by around 6%. This would be manageable provided the current dual lane works are completed.
  • Horizon Drive daily traffic volume, near Emmanuel Anglican College, would increase by around 83% to 4,490 vpd. This could contribute to congestion at school drop off/pick up times and loss of some residential amenity.
  • In heavy rainfall/flooding periods, Barlows Road would not be trafficable and traffic would revert back to other links in the network.

Scenario Two

This scenario involves the construction of Barlows Road, 2036 traffic volumes and all other planned Road Contributions Plan network links (such as the Western Arterial and North Creek Bridge) being constructed. This scenario found that in the long term:

  • Barlows Road link would convey a significant volume of around 7,810 vpd in 2036.
  • Western Arterial traffic would be reduced to 10,675 vpd (compared with 14,411 in the absence of Barlows Road).
  • Tamarind Drive traffic between Flathead Lane and North Creek Road/Western Arterial would be reduced to 13,085 vpd (compared with 20,634 in the absence of Barlows Road). This means the planned dual laning of Tamarind Drive from Cumbalum to North Creek Road, as provided for in the Road Contributions Plan, would no longer be required. The estimated cost of this work was $10.6m, as at the last review of the Road Contributions Plan.
  • Tamarind Drive traffic between North Creek Road/Western Arterial and Kerr Street would drop to 15% to 25,560. There are similar reductions in volumes on Bangalow Road, facilitating an improved level of service between Kerr Street and Angels Beach Drive and Cherry Street/Moon Street. This may allow construction of the Western Arterial to be deferred by some years.
  • River Street traffic volumes would increase around 10%, but still stay within the dual lane capacity of 36,000 vpd.
  • Horizon Drive traffic volumes would substantially drop long term compared to Scenario One, most likely due to traffic switching to the Western Arterial.
  • As in Scenario One, in heavy rain/flooding periods, Barlows Road would not be trafficable and traffic would revert back to other links in the network.

Climate Change Policy (Draft)

In 2019 Council declared a state of Climate Emergency and in response has prepared a draft Climate Change Policy. The policy sets organisational emissions reduction targets, and a framework for progressing climate change adaptation and resilience strategies.

The targets are more ambitious than the NSW and Australian Governments and aim to achieve rapid emissions reduction by:

  • reducing our operational greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero emissions by 2030.
  • using 100% renewable electricity for our operations by 2030.

These targets are considered achievable as they focus on Council’s own operations such as water and wastewater, street lighting, community facilities, and planning and development. Our draft Climate Change Policy also looks at ways to progress climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience strategies within the community.

You can provide feedback on the draft policy and also complete the climate change action survey by visiting ballina.nsw.gov.au/Climate Change Action

Draft Ballina Shire Plan of Management for Community Land 2021

Council has prepared a draft shire-wide Plan of Management for Community Land (POM) which provides the management framework for public land (Council owned land and Crown land managed by Council) classified as Community Land under the Local Government Act 1993. 

In 2018 the Crown Land Management Act 2016 replaced the Crown Lands Act 1989.  The reform included the requirement for councils to have compliant plans of management in place by 30 June 2021 for dedicated or reserved Crown land (where Council is the land manager) and manage the land as if it were public land under the Local Government Act 1993.  

The draft POM has been prepared on the basis that all Council managed community land (aside from land within the Ballina Coastal Reserve) will be managed under a single plan.  The draft POM has also been prepared based on Crown lands advice regarding the categorisation of land and in accordance with the legislative requirements under the Local Government Act 1993 and the Crown Land Management Act 2016

As part of the plan review and Crown land integration process, the existing Ballina Shire POM for Community Land 2015 will be replaced by the draft POM (upon its adoption). 

The draft POM will be on public exhibition from Wednesday 24 February 2021 to Wednesday 7 April 2021

The draft POM may be viewed on council’s website at ballina.nsw.gov.au/Documents-on-Exhibition. A feedback button is available to assist you in making submissions. 

Hard copies of the draft POM can be accessed at:

  • Council’s Customer Service Centre between 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday, and
  • Community Access Points (shire libraries)

If you wish to discuss the draft POM with Council staff, 30 minute appointments are available (either by phone or in-person at Council’s administration building) between 1pm – 4pm, Wednesday to Friday for the duration of the exhibition period.  To make a booking, please telephone Fiona King in Council’s Strategic Planning Section at least 24 hours in advance on 1300 864 444

Submissions close: Wednesday 7 April 2021

Enquiries: Fiona King, Planning and Environmental Health Division, Ph 1300 864 444
