These documents identify the design standards and strategies for enhancing the public domain and provide technical specifications for road and traffic measures required in the Release Area. The exhibited changes included:

(i) Clarifications around on-street parking requirements for local roads and access streets within the Roads Masterplan.

KEY CHANGES PROPOSED TO THE WARRIEWOOD VALLEY SECTION 94 CONTRIBUTIONS PLAN As outlined in the previous report to Council on 26 June 2018, the key changes to the plan are as follows:

REPORT TO ORDINARY COUNCIL MEETING ITEM NO. 11.2 - 28 AUGUST 2018 97 1. Removal of references to ‘Section 94’ in the title and throughout the document to reflect legislative changes that came into effect on 1 March 2018. Section 94 is now known as Section 7.11 under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (as amended).

Amend the current methodology used to calculate the contribution rate for ‘residential care facilities and nursing home’ developments under the State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing for Seniors or People with a Disability) 2004. This update will reflect the different level of demand on local infrastructure between this development type, ‘independent living and serviced self-care housing’ and traditional ‘residential’ development. This recognises that residents in ‘residential care facilities and nursing home’ developments who typically require specialised care, as their movement and/or independence is severely restricted, will not place the same level of demand on some elements in the Plan as other residents and workers in the Release Area.

As demonstrated in table 1 below, for residential development, the Plan collects funds to provide infrastructure for traffic and transport, multi-function creek line corridors (both land and rehabilitation), community facilities, public recreation and open space, pedestrian and cycleway network and plan administration. However, in relation to SEPP Seniors Living (residential care facility/nursing homes), due to the age, health and/or mobility restrictions of residents, these residents will not create the same demand for community facilities, public recreation and open space, and pedestrian and cycle infrastructure as other residents or workers in the Release Area. Accordingly, it is not proposed to collect funds from this development type for these elements.
