The City of Wyndham is the fastest growing area in the state. We are mindful of the impact this has on existing schools in the area, including Williams Landing and are committed to developing solutions for meeting demand.

The network of schools surrounding Williams Landing includes Truganina South Primary School and Truganina P-9 within the Wyndham municipality and Laverton P-12 in Hobsons Bay municipality. The closest school to Williams Landing is Truganina South Primary School which is approximately 500 metres from the suburb boundary. This school was opened in 2011 to meet the future needs of the Williams Landing community after the Department was not able to secure a suitable site in Williams Landing. There is capacity in this network for additional students, additionally Truganina P-9, which opened this year, will begin to take year seven students from 2016.

The Department of Education and Training’s School Enrolment and Placement Policy Guidelines state that every child is entitled to be enrolled at his or her designated local neighbourhood Government school (the school that is nearest the student’s permanent residence). A child may enrol at a Government school that is not their designated Government school if there is sufficient accommodation for the child at that school, however priority is given to students for which that school is their designated local neighbourhood Government school.

The Department understands that some schools may keep “waiting lists” for students where the school is not their designated local neighbourhood Government school in the hope that there is sufficient capacity once local students are fully enrolled; however this is not Department policy and the Department is actively working with schools to discourage this practice.

The department has a robust methodology for forecasting demand for new schools, which includes detailed consultation with relevant local councils and the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA). A number of future school sites have already been identified by the Department, MPA and Council to meet the expected future demand. Funding for new schools is considered by Government as part of the annual State Budget alongside consideration of other funding priorities.

The Department will continue to work with the City of Wyndham, Hobsons Bay City Council, the MPA and other relevant stakeholders to ensure that future enrolment growth is appropriately planned for and all Victorian students have access to high quality education.

4309. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: In relation to the 284 logging coupes removed from the amended 2015 Timber Release Plan, in particular the Minister’s comments in Parliament on 20 October 2015 that “Of the 284 coupes removed from the latest Timber Release Plan, 60 coupes were unharvested and 224 coupes were successfully regenerated”:

(1) How many of the 224 “regenerated” coupes removed from the amended 2015 Timber Release Plan have been subject to thinning operations.

Page 230: PARLIAMENTARY DEBATES (HANSARD) · 2015. 12. 16. · MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVECOUNCIL FIFTY-EIGHTH PARLIAMENT — FIRST SESSION President: The Hon. B. N. ATKINSON Deputy President:

QUESTIONS ON NOTICE

5840 COUNCIL Tuesday, 8 December 2015

(2) If any of the 224 “regenerated” coupes removed from the amended 2015 Timber Release Plan have been subject to thinning operations, does the Minister consider such thinning operations to be part of the regeneration process.

(3) How many of the 224 “regenerated” coupes removed from the amended 2015 Timber Release Plan have been harvested using clearfell logging operations.

(4) If any of the 224 “regenerated” coupes removed from the amended 2015 Timber Release Plan have been harvested using clearfell logging operations, does the Minister consider such clearfell logging operations to be part of the regeneration process.

ANSWER:

I am informed that:

(1) A total of seven coupes were subject to ‘thinning’ and removed from the Timber Release Plan (TRP) after having demonstrated they met the requirements for thinning in compliance with the Code of Practice for Timber Production 2014.

(2) Yes. There is no requirement to ‘regenerate’ a coupe that has been thinned. VicForests is required to demonstrate that thinning operations are undertaken in accordance with the Code of Practice for Timber Production 2014. Once verified, coupes that have been thinned are removed from the TRP.

(3) 54 coupes were previously subject to clear-fell harvesting, and 35 coupes were previously clear-fell salvaged following the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. These coupes have been treated and assessed as being regenerated successfully.

(4) All clear-fell timber harvesting operations undertaken by VicForests are regenerated in compliance with the Code of Practice for Timber Production 2014.

Agriculture

4310. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: In relation to the preparation of two separate Timber Release Plans for 2015:

(1) Why were two distinct Timber Release Plans released in 2015. (2) What was the intention of releasing these two Plans.

ANSWER:

I am informed that:

(1) VicForests maintains a single Timber Release Plan (TRP). Making changes to the TRP is normal business practice by VicForests to meet changing needs. Changes to a TRP are generally made on an annual basis, although changes can be made at other times. For operational reasons VicForests amended its TRP twice in 2015. The development and release of a TRP involves considerable public consultation. The TRP provides a transparent, public record of the location of areas which may be sustainably harvested and regenerated by VicForests.

(2) In 2015, two separate processes resulted in a minor and a major change to the TRP:

– In April 2015, a minor amendment was made to the TRP. This change was required for VicForests to meet its 2014–15 contractual obligations with customers. The change included the addition of four coupes, one boundary amendment and the addition of one coupe driveway.

– In August 2015, VicForests completed its regular annual update of the TRP. The update included the addition of 316 coupes, the modification of 29 coupe boundaries and the removal of 284 coupes. The update allowed VicForests to maintain operational flexibility to address further detections of Leadbeater’s Possum and respond to issues raised by environmental groups.

QUESTIONS ON NOTICE

Tuesday, 8 December 2015 COUNCIL 5841

Agriculture

4312. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: In relation to the significant number of logging coupes which fail to “regenerate” after logging, and are not “regenerated” for many subsequent years, adding significantly to the burden on public finances:

(1) Do you include the impacts of climate change or climate change modelling in the planning of “regeneration” of logging coupes.

(2) If so, are the effects of climate change making “regeneration” of logging coupes more challenging in recent years.

(3) If so, what processes and plans are being implemented to mitigate this and improve the “regeneration” of logging coupes.

ANSWER:

I am informed that:

(1) VicForests takes into consideration the impacts of climate change. VicForests decreases winter regeneration operations during periods of drought. VicForests undertakes 90 per cent of its regeneration activities in autumn, except for higher elevation areas that are subject to wetter and cooler conditions where the success of regeneration will be reduced.

(2) Past droughts have had an impact on regeneration success. As part of VicForests regeneration planning, drought and other impacts are taken into consideration to ensure regeneration of the forest has the best possible opportunity for success.

(3) VicForests has a sound framework in place to ensure the risk to successful regeneration is managed appropriately. The majority of regeneration work is undertaken during autumn to ensure optimal conditions for success.

Roads and road safety

4313. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture (for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety): In relation to the Strategic Cycling Corridors as prepared by VicRoads:

(1) What is the extent and program of activities in relation to community consultation that will be undertaken to inform and update the Victorian Cycling Strategy and new action plan.

(2) What is the progress and extent of the work with VicRoads for the Strategic Cycling Corridors project.

(3) What are the ‘missing links’ in the existing bicycle network and how have they been identified. (4) How are these ‘missing links’ prioritised in terms of investment in cycling infrastructure.

ANSWER:

I am informed that, as at the date the question was raised:

1) There are three ways people can participate in the community consultation to update Victoria’s cycling strategy. People can choose to complete an online survey (running from 20 October to 16 December 2015), provide a written submission through a dedicated email address (running from 20 October to 16 December 2015) and/or attend any of 10 community consultation workshops across the state; five in metropolitan Melbourne and five in regional Victoria. The community will also be able to provide feedback on the draft cycling strategy in early 2016.

2) VicRoads is well progressed in the identification of Strategic Cycling Corridors (SCCs) across metropolitan Melbourne and 46 regional cities and centres throughout Victoria. VicRoads and the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources have consulted local government in the development

of the SCCs. The SCCs are indicative corridors only and further investigation and consultation will determine the optimum routes within particular corridors.

3) ‘Missing links’ will be identified for each route within the SCCs in consultation with stakeholders.

4) The ‘missing links’ will be prioritised for investment within a targeted investment plan that will be developed for each route.

Agriculture

4314. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: In relation to the logging coupe knows as “Tassie,” near the township of Toolangi, coupe address “297-823-0003”:

(1) What action is the Minister taking to “regenerate” this coupe. (2) What is the advice of scientists in relation to the “regeneration” of this coupe. (3) Given that the coupe has already failed to regenerate several times, what is the added cost of

“regeneration”. (4) What is the cost so far of the attempted “regeneration” of this coupe. (5) If “regeneration” at this coupe continues to fail, what will the Minister be doing to remedy the

situation.

ANSWER:

I am informed that:

(1) VicForests has undertaken its regeneration practices in accordance with the Code of Practice for Timber Production 2014. VicForests advises that 16.9 hectares of the coupe has successfully regenerated. However, 15 hectares failed the 2012 regeneration survey and was retreated by rough heaping in 2013. This failed area was re-surveyed in 2015 and found to have failed again. VicForests will re-retreat the failed 15 hectares in 2016. This will be undertaken by slashing the failed area, then burning to create a seedbed. The majority of the area will be fenced to exclude deer and wallabies from entering the site, and sown with seed collected from nearby areas of the same species. Small areas outside the fence will be hand planted and seedlings protected with tree guards. Hand planting seedlings has proved successful where sowing has not.

(2) Browsing by deer and wallabies and frost during the germination stage are contributing factors that have slowed successful regeneration at this site.

(3) VicForests is responsible for the ongoing cost of regeneration of all coupes it harvests. The government does not provide any funding for regeneration or for re-treatment of failed regeneration attempts. Regeneration costs vary considerably depending on:

– site characteristics-slope, elevation, rainfall, aspect, time since harvest and the forest species;

– how the seedbed is prepared-broadcast burning of the slash versus mechanical disturbance and rough-heaping of the slash;

– how the seed is collected-either from the ground or by climbing trees; and

– how the seedlings are established-seed aerially sown, seed sown by hand or direct planting of seedlings.

Regeneration Costs usually range between $750-$1500 per hectare. Regeneration failure results in additional retreatment costs to VicForests of between $1500-$3000 per hectare. The additional costs for retreatment arise from the need for further preparation of the site to maximise treatment and regeneration.

(4) First attempt regeneration treatment (broadcast burning and aerial sowing of 32 hectares) cost a total of $750 per hectare (total $22 000). Second attempt re-treatment (mechanical disturbance, rough-heaping and aerial

Page 233: PARLIAMENTARY DEBATES (HANSARD) · 2015. 12. 16. · MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVECOUNCIL FIFTY-EIGHTH PARLIAMENT — FIRST SESSION President: The Hon. B. N. ATKINSON Deputy President:

sowing of failed 15 hectares) cost $2000 per hectare (total $30 000). A third attempt at re-treatment has not been completed.

(5) VicForests is committed to regenerating all areas it harvests. The re-attempt at achieving regeneration at this site in 2016 will include special measures to control browsing by deer and wallabies, which has been the main cause of regeneration failure. Some seedlings will be hand planted, and tree guards and fencing will be erected to enhance regeneration of the site.

Agriculture

4315. MS DUNN — To ask the Minister for Agriculture: In relation to the logging coupe knows as “Rusty,” near the township of Toolangi, coupe address “297-547-0007”:

(1) What action is the Minister taking to “regenerate” this coupe. (2) What is the advice of scientists in relation to the “regeneration” of this coupe. (3) What is the total cost to date of the “regeneration” of this coupe. (4) Is the Minister still considering conducting a “regeneration burn” at this coupe. (5) If the answer to (4) is yes, when will this take place. (6) When the coupe is being “regenerated,” will it be planted with the original Messmate eucalyptus

plants, which grew in this area of forest prior to the logging which occurred in the early 20th Century, after which the coupe was planted with Mountain Ash or will the coupe be “regenerated” using Mountain Ash eucalyptus plants.

ANSWER:

I am informed that:

(1) VicForests agreed not to burn this site in autumn 2015, following concerns raised with the Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water by local environmentalists and members of the Toolangi community. As a result, VicForests has taken on additional risk associated with the successful regeneration of this coupe. To ensure optimal management of this coupe, VicForests implemented a new system of harvesting (regrowth retention harvesting), which is currently being applied in the Central Highlands to assist the recovery of the Leadbeater’s Possum. VicForests is currently considering two options to manage this coupe that will involve dividing the coupe into sections to enable burning and mechanical disturbance to be undertaken, which will ensure optimal regeneration success.

(2) VicForests has established best practice management of regeneration activities in accordance with the Native Forest Silviculture Guidelines series. This includes site preparation techniques for all coupes. A broadcast burn is the preferred operation to provide a suitable seedbed for regeneration, minimise soil disturbance and ensure seed sowing rates are adequate for this coupe.

(3) VicForests has spent $1200 to remove debris and protect habitat trees and other retained areas as part of post-harvest preparations for burning. VicForests will continue to manage this coupe to ensure regeneration meets commercial regeneration standards.

(4) As outlined in the answer to question one, VicForests is currently considering two options to manage this coupe.

(5) Regeneration activities take place in autumn, when conditions are routinely safe for burning. Autumn is also the best time for germination of seedlings to ensure establishment before summer.

(6) The “Rusty” site includes 3 species of eucalypt (mountain ash, messmate and mountain grey gum) that have naturally persisted since the 1939 bushfires. These species have either naturally regenerated following the 1939 bushfire or regenerated as a result of historic timber harvesting. VicForests will regenerate this site with a mix of:

Education

4345. MS BATH — To ask the Minister for Training and Skills (for the Minister for Education): In relation to the number of parent enquiries to the Department of Education about home schooling and the number of actual registrations of home schooling families for each year since 2010 in Eastern Victoria:

(1) How many people enquire of the department each year. (2) How many people are actually registered each year. (3) What in-service courses do department officials attend to be fully informed about home education,

current research and knowledge in the area and the skills and needs of home educators. (4) What self-evaluation procedures, in regards to home education, are there for the department to

learn what it is doing well and where clients consider there could be improvements.

ANSWER:

I am informed as follows:

(1) The Department of Education receives hundreds of telephone, email and written enquiries from parents, students, schools, media organisations and other members of the Victorian community each week.

All inquiries to the Department of Education by parents seeking information about registering to home school a child in Victoria are referred to the Victorian Registration & Qualifications Authority (VRQA). VRQA has the legislative role of registering students for home schooling under Part 4 of the Education & Training Reform Act 2006.

(2) As at 31 October 2015, there were 4365 students registered for home schooling in Victoria.

(3) VRQA has suitable arrangements, in place to ensure that VRQA staff have appropriate training in relation to the Education & Training Reform Act 2006 and the Education & Training Reform Regulations 2007, relevant to its role in registering students for home schooling under the Act.

The Department of Education and Training actively follows developments in home schooling research and evidence and regularly reviews its policies.

(4) Parents who decide to home school their children assume overall responsibility for the planning, implementation and assessment of their child's education. Home schooling learning programs must address the eight key learning areas and be consistent with democratic principles and practice.

Ports

4360. MS HARTLAND — To ask the Minister for Agriculture (for the Minister for Ports): If the lease of the Port of Melbourne proceeds, what is the earliest possible time that —

(a) Consideration of the Port Rail Shuttle project will occur with the new operator; (b) The Port Rail Shuttle Expressions of Interest process might proceed; and (c) The Port Rail Shuttle project will be complete.

ANSWER:

I am informed that as at the date the question was raised:

Rather than proceed with an Expression of Interest process specifically for the Port-rail Shuttle, the Government has decided to seek rail modal outcome proposals - which could include the Port- rail Shuttle or other approaches - as part of the Port of Melbourne lease transaction.

Funding has been retained in the budget against the Port-rail Shuttle pending the outcome of the Port lease process and the Government will work with the leaseholder to achieve a rail modal outcome that benefits to the State and port users at the appropriate time.

At this point it is not possible to be specific about the timing of the Port lease transaction or, therefore, discussions with Port lease bidders about possible approaches to achieving a rail modal outcome at the Port.

The Government is keen to proceed with the Port transaction and to unlock the benefits which will flow from leasing the Port of Melbourne but this depends on a number of factors, including the passage of the relevant legislation through the Parliament.

As the development and operation of the Port-rail Shuttle will be undertaken by the private sector, it is not possible for the Government to determine the date by which the project might be completed and operational.

Roads and road safety

1991. MS HARTLAND — To ask the Minister for Agriculture (representing the Minister for Roads and Road Safety): Has the government delayed the Port-Rail Shuttle project in order to improve the business case of the Western Distributor proposal.

ANSWER:

I am informed that, as at the date the question was raised:

Projects to enhance road network capacity are necessary to accommodate increases in passenger car and light commercial vehicle traffic, irrespective of the role rail might play in moving passengers and freight.

The Government has not delayed the Port-rail Shuttle project in order to improve the business case for the Western Distributor. Given the anticipated increases in the numbers of containers moving between the Port of Melbourne and destinations in Melbourne and regional Victoria, the Government believes that both road and rail solutions will be required.

I am informed that, as at the date the question was raised:

Funding has been retained in the budget against the Port-rail Shuttle pending the outcome of the lease process (refer to 2015-16 State Budget, Paper 4, pg 20).

Wednesday, 9 December 2015 COUNCIL 5873

The 2015-16 State Budget provides $257 million in additional funding for child protection and family services, representing a 17% increase compared to last year.

It also provided for an additional $935 million for pay increases for workers in the non-government social and community services sector.

Workers who care for some of our community’s most in need and vulnerable people are now guaranteed pay rises for the next four years. The mostly-female workforce is employed across the community sector in areas such as caring for people with disabilities, the homeless and children who cannot live with their immediate families because of abuse or neglect.

Fair Work Australia’s Equal Remuneration Order, handed down in 2012, ordered pay increases for the traditionally underpaid workers in the non-government social and community services sector.

Unlike the previous Coalition Government, the Andrews Labor Government is proud to be supporting a fair go for a workforce that contributes so much to the people of Victoria.
