Changes have had to be made to a Voluntary Planning Agreement which will allow first stage release of the Joseph's Gate residential development in Goulburn.

 

The matter was presented to this week's meeting of Goulburn Mulwaree Council.

 

It was revealed that there were stability issues on land where a walkway is to be built, from the development site to join the footpath in Wollondilly avenue and the former Boathouse.

 

Council needs to be satisfied that the terrain is suitable for construction of the walkway and a final design is now being sought.

 

Director of Planning and Environment, Scott Martin says approval of the VPA variation allows the first stage of development to be presented.

The Goulburn Mulwaree Council has advised of a confirmed case of Whooping Cough at the Goulburn Aquatic Centre.

 

Swim patrons are being told that the person affected was participating in the Learn to Swim programme on March the 21st and 28th.

 

Whooping Cough also known as Pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial disease which can readily spread by direct contact with droplets from the nose and throat of an infected person.

 

The council is asking swim patrons to watch for symptoms of Whooping Cough in their families.

 

These can present as a cold with a blocked or runny noise, tiredness and mild fever.

 

The symptom could start with a dry cough and progress to severe bouts that could include gasping and vomiting.

 

If so, medical advice should be sought.

The developers of a new motel in the former State Bank building in Goulburn's main street, have been given more time to supply information to council.

 

This week's council meeting was set to consider DA  refusal due to the lack of information, but mayor Bob Kirk presented an alternate course of action.

 

He proposed that the developers be given another 28 days to comply with council officers' requests for more detail.

 

While agreeing, deputy mayor, Peter Walker alluded to the 90 page report presented to the meeting and that the matter had been before council several times previously.

 

He said if the required information was not supplied in 28 days, the application should be knocked back.

 

One of the main issues is how will the shortage of 26 car parking spaces be addressed.
