Proposed Use and Development

Approval is sought to use and develop part of the existing building on site for the
purposes of Visitor Accommodation. It is proposed to convert the existing
hairdressing salon, Providore and art gallery on the site into 7 boutique
accommodation suites for short term accommodation.

Proposed suites 1-3 will be located on the first floor (existing Providore location) and
will have entry via the existing stairs from Bridge Road as well as internally into the
restaurant on ground floor level. Each suite will be provided with a king bed and
ensuite as well as lounge facilities.

Proposed suites 4-6 will be located on the second floor (existing gallery) and will be
accessed from the foyer via the first floor. The suites will each also contain a king
bed, ensuite and lounge facilities.

Proposed suite 7 will be located within the ground floor within the existing cottage
(hairdresser) to the east of the restaurant. This suite will be DDA compliant and will
be accessed from the existing carpark.

No external building works are proposed and as such no change to the appearance
of the building. There will only be minor remedial works to the exterior in regards to
replacement of windows (to match existing).

Access and car parking will remain as per existing.

A copy of the development plans is included as Appendix B to this report.

4.5.4 Road and Railway Assets Code E4.0
It is submitted that the Road and Railway Assets Code is not applicable to this
application as the proposed change of use from a hairdressing salon, Providore and
art gallery to 7 short term visitor accommodation suites does not require a new
vehicle crossing and will not intensify the use of an existing access.
In terms of traffic generation, at full occupancy, the boutique accommodation would
generate approximately 35 vehicle movements per day (based on two movements in
and two movements out per day for each accommodation suite and an additional 7
movements to cater for cleaning and servicing of the accommodation).
The existing hairdresser alone could generate between 30-40 vpd based on 15-20
clients per day (there were three hairdressers operating from the salon). The gallery
and Providore would each generate a minimum of 15-20 vpd so it is evident that the
proposed change of use will not intensify the use of an existing access and indeed
the number of car parks on site will not be altered therefore car parking capacity will
not change.

4.5.5 Flood Prone Areas Code E5.0
The Flood Prone Areas Code applies as part of the site is mapped as being within a
flood prone area (see Figure 3).

Code Purpose

E6.1.1 a) ensure that use or development subject to risk from flooding is
appropriately located and managed; and

Use Standards
E5.5.1 Risk to sensitive use
Objective
To minimise the risk of injury to, or loss of human life or damage to property, in
relation to sensitive uses in the event of a flood.
Acceptable Solution Performance Criteria
A1 No acceptable solution P1 Sensitive use must be located to
minimise the risk of injury to or
loss of human life or damage to
property, having regard to:
(a) the need for the location;
(b) the characteristics and scale of the
use;
(c) the characteristics of the inundation
of the land that is subject to the
risk;
(d) the nature and frequency of the
inundation;
(e) any measures proposed to mitigate
the risk;
(f) the nature, degree, practicality and
obligation for any management
activities to mitigate the risk; and
(g) the level of risk identified in any
report prepared by a suitably
qualified person.

Complies with P1
It is noted that only a small portion of the ‘Mill Building’ within which proposed
Suites 1-3 and 4-6 is actually situated within the Flood Risk Area and that in
recent large flood events (2016), that the flood did not reach the Providore level
(the lower of the two proposed accommodation unit levels). Proposed Suite 7 is
situated outside of the Flood Risk Area and therefore the Code does not apply
to Suite 7.
Appendix C includes a flood management plan and a cover letter from Rare
Engineering which addresses risk of the proposed change of use. Provided the
Flood Management Plan is followed, there is no risk to life. There has, and
always will be risk to property in this location and this will not change as a

result of the proposed change of use. It is noted that it is mainly the existing
Stillwater Restaurant that has the potential property risk.
There are a range of factors which mitigate the risk posed as follows:

• The location of Suites 1-7 above ground floor level (or at ground floor
level on the higher street side, outside of the Flood Risk Area).

• The small scale of the proposed accommodation (only 7 suites means it
is relatively easy to inform guests of the need for evacuation);

• The early warning system that Launceston has in place for flooding
means that it is unlikely flooding would occur without the opportunity
for authorities to notify all potentially effected businesses prior.

A2 – Not applicable
Table E6.1 requires for Visitor Accommodation 1 space per self-contained
accommodation unit or 1 space per 4 beds, whichever is greater. The
accommodation units are not self-contained as they do not include kitchens or
kitchenettes. Therefore 1 space per 4 beds is required to be provided and given
there are 7 beds proposed, 2 spaces are required.
The existing restaurant is defined as Food Services under the Scheme and Table
E6.1 requires the provision of 1 space per 15m2 of gross floor area. The
restaurant component has a gross floor area of 201.85m2, resulting in a
required car parking provision of 13 spaces.
The overall number of spaces required to be provided on site to meet the
permitted standards of the Planning Scheme is therefore 15.
Only 6 spaces are provided on site therefore the application is assessed against
P1.1.
Firstly, it is noted that the car parking requirement for the current uses on site
exceeds the requirement for the proposed uses therefore demand on the
existing spaces will be reduced. The hairdresser and Providore uses (General

Retail and Hire) require 1 space per 30m2 gross floor area which given a GFA of
approximately 150m2 for both these spaces, resulted in a requirement for 5
spaces. The existing gallery (community meeting and entertainment) requires 1
space per 20m2 floor area available to the public generating a requirement for 6
spaces based on a floor are of 120m2. Therefore, in total, the demand on car
parking in accordance with Table E6.1 will reduce from 11 spaces to 2 spaces
with the proposed change of use.
It is submitted that the 11 Council spaces shown within the Ritchie’s Mill
Precinct are primarily utilised by customers of the Ritchie’s Mill complex and
indeed negotiations are well underway to adhere these spaces to the Ritchie’s
Mill title, in which case, sufficient spaces would be provided for on-site to meet
the requirements of E6.1. These 11 spaces include an accessible space.

Dear Todd

RITCHIES MILL ACCOMM
ACCOMMODATION - 2 BRIDGE ROAD, LAUNCESTON

nd
Following your instructions in your email dated 22 October 2017, we have prepared a flood management
plan for your client to review and action.
The flood management plan prepared by us considers the current plan by Stillwater and how best to
manage risks with the hair salon located on the ground floor, which we understand will be converted to
DDA compliant accommodation.
Provided the flood management plan is adopted and continuously improved by the building owner and
early warning systems are followed, we see no risk to life. However, there is significant risk damage may
occur to property, which has and always will be present.
Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
Yours faithfully,

Alan J. Leake

STILLWATER FLOOD EVACUATION
EVACUATION PLAN

1. Key Personnel

Flood Coordinator: Rod Ascui 0438 210 460
Alternate flood coordinators: James Welsh 0447 747 725 and Craig Will 0433 780 724
2. Flooding

This area is vulnerable to flooding.

The site is within a flood inundation area. We understand from anecdotal data the flood level at this site for
a 1 in 100 ARI is a relative level of 3.64m.

Peak flow in 2016 flooding was 2150 cubic meters per second with a 3.96 metre tide. This nearly reached
the floor level of the Wine Bar, Bar and Ripples Store/Hairdresser.

A detailed flood risk assessment for the area has not been carried out by Rare and it is our understanding
Launceston Flood Authority would consider this with their flood strategy.

3. Flood Management Plan

In the event of a 1 in 100 year flood, it is expected that the flood level at the site will be approximately 3.64
metres. This is as advised by the Launceston City Council. The site is located on the river side of the levee and
exposed to flooding.

The following plan will be issued to the building owners and their representatives and tenants and must be
prominently displayed at the premises.

All evacuation supervised by Stillwater flood co-ordinators and carried out be Stillwater employees and
representatives. Stillwater directors estimate that fourteen (14) personnel are adequate to evacuate the site in
approximately six hours. Stillwater flood co-ordinators believe they have at least 12 hours from final warning.

In the event of a flood warning

− Listen to local radio (ABC 91.7FM) and TV
− Regularly check the Bureau of Meteorology website for warnings www.bom.gov.au click on TAS
− Regularly contact the Launceston City Council Customer Service on 6323 3000 for flooding updates
− Check for rising water levels at and around the premises
− Listen for public address warnings
− Monitoring will be the responsibility of the Stillwater Flood Coordinator Rod Ascui and alternate flood
coordinators James Welsh and Craig Will
− Create a roster for 24 hour presence on-site

When flood warnings are issued

Approximately 24 hours notice will be issued by authorities prior to premises being flooded, however only 6 to 7
hours will be available before the area will need to be evacuated. In this time the following must be done to
minimise damage to the company and customer’s property as well as harm to the environment:

− Remove hazardous materials to higher ground.
− Move all vehicles to higher ground.
− Move portable electrical and other equipment (computers, tools etc) documents and manageable
furniture to higher areas.
− Procure sandbags which should be placed in toilet bowls and around all doors - silicon may also be
used to seal all doors and windows.
− Weigh manhole covers down with sandbags or heavy objects.
− Block drains with plugs.
− Leave all drawers, cabinet doors and internal doors open to prevent swelling and sticking shut.
− Lock all windows.
− Turn power off at the main switchboard.
− Lock all external doors.
− Install flood mitigation pumps to pump stormwater over the levee and out of buildings (where
applicable)
− Recycling bin to be taken out and placed outside front gates. Veolia to be called to remove front load
bin. If bin not picked up it needs to be tied back to the building.
− Pump out sewage tank using manual override, notify Ian McFawn at Taswater 0417 582 694.
− All shutters and main door to be closed like normal.

If evacuation
evacuation is required

− Notify all tenants of requirements to evacuate.
− Follow all directions given by police and other authorities to leave the area.
− Do not re-enter the area or premises until advised by authorities that it is safe to do so.
− In the event of an evacuation as much of Stillwater’s equipment will be moved off site to 16 Laura Street,
92 Arthur Street and 96 Balfour Street.
− Transport of equipment and goods will be in trucks and utilities. Cool store goods are to be taken to
Island Fresh at 16 Merino Street, Kings Meadows 6341 1900.
− Frozen foods are to be taken to PFD Wholesale at Connector Park 6326 7199 and Doppio Food
0418 540 812 (Shane Delanty).
− Wine and spirit to be transported using borrowed crates from Mr Adam Standage 6344 5637 and taken
to James Welsh property or moved upstairs.

STUDIO
architecture & design
The following document is a response to the RFI from the Tasmanian Heritage
Council in regards to the proposed work at Richie’s Mill. The response has been
prepared by Todd Henderson of Cumulus Studio.

4.0 Conservation policy

4.1 General policy

1. All building fabric, elements, material and evidence from the period up to 1943
(the period of the fire and reconstruction of much of the back and upper level of
the mill) are of highest significance and should be conserved.

Adaptation of this material should be carried out only if there is no prudent and
feasible alternative. Where possible material from this period of the buildings
history should be recovered and interpreted.

The proposed works will further reveal more of the significant fabric and seek to
conserve it.

2. The building fabric from the 1943 fire until the closure of the mill in 1973 is of
lesser significance and is capable of adaptation. Evidence of processes related
to milling should be retained where possible to demonstrate the predominant
historical use of the building overtime.

The existing evidence of processes already existing will be retained under the
current works.

3. Changes made after closure of the mill related to the reconstruction of the
residence, the adaptation of the store and mill and the general upgrade of the
building are of minimal significance and in many cases are intrusive on significant
fabric. These may be altered, removed or further adapted as required for
contemporary use.

Existing wall lining additions previously added to the Mill, the Residence and Flour
Store are to be removed to expose as much of the existing fabric as practicable.

4. The place should be interpreted throughout the buildings using extant material
and elements to demonstrate the former uses and configurations of the buildings.
The place should be capable of demonstrating its former function as a mill, its
various transformations to accommodate new machinery and processes as well
as house new uses.

The proposed works are configured to allow the buildings former use to be
interpreted. The new works will be designed in such a way so as to be easily
recognized as new interventions.

5. Future fitout and adaptation of the building should minimise the covering up of
significant fabric.
architecture & design
The majority of the existing significant fabric will remain exposed.

Significant fabric should only be covered when it is required for functional reasons
where an adverse impact on that fabric would otherwise take place.

There will be cases where the existing fabric will be covered in order to comply
with the NCC fire rating requirements.

Such work must be reversible and be implemented without impact on the
significant fabric and must be restricted to specific parts of the site.

It is intended that this work will be reversible

6. Minor additions to accommodate access (particularly disability access) may be
made provided the Tasmanian Heritage Council is satisfied there is no prudent
and feasible alternative.

The only area relevant to disability access is the addition of the ramp to the
residence (old hairdresser) the ramp will disturb the existing modern pavers only.

7. New work should be clearly discernible from existing fabric. Additions should
be of contemporary design and to sections of the building of low significance:

Suitable areas for adaptation are:
• the interior of the loading dock,
• the toilet annex,
• the hopper access from the street, and,
• the upper levels of the store building.

Not applicable to this application; No work is proposed to these areas.

8. The external treatment of the site should retain the relationship of the building
to the ground in the pre-1973 layout of the site. New external elements, if
required, should lightweight, related to specific elements of the building, should
allow the building to be seen in relation to the ground and should favour
contemporary design.

Not applicable to this application; No external work proposed.

9. New openings should not be made on the exterior of significant elements of
the building.

10. All signs on the building should be co-ordinated in design and approach with
a theme that relates them to the place subject to research and validation. Signage
should be avoided that obscures the building or which dominates any element of
the place.

Any proposed signage will match existing and is yet to be designed, the intention
is that it will be worked through with the THC.

11. Any future development of the adjacent area should involve a re-design of the
carpark area to minimise its visual impact on the setting of the mill building.

Not applicable to this application; No work proposed to the carpark area.

12. The site boundary should be rationalised to reflect the early sub-division
pattern of the place (the road alignment), the foreshore as it currently exists and
the need for access through and around the site.
It is recommended that the rear boundary remain the face of the retaining wall to
the street but the waterside boundary be adjusted as indicated on the proposed
site boundary drawing (see Appendix 5). The boundary would follow the
waterside of the path and extend in a line towards the entry gates running parallel
to the original road alignment.

Not applicable to this application; No reconfiguration of titles is intended as part
of this application.

40. The smutter (currently housed in a cl943 infill structure between the mill
building and the silos) should ideally be retained in situ.
If this is not prudent due to functional requirements linked to a viable,
contemporary, use of the building then;
(i) an archival record of the machine should be compiled including annotated
measured drawings and photographs. A copy of the record should be lodged in
an appropriate repository (e.g., Tasmaniana Library)3°,
(ii) the machine should be detached in such a way as to leave the chute from the
floor above, and the chute to the silos in place at the respective wall junctions.
This will require cutting at the wall line. Linkages and fittings removed during
detachment should be boxed, labelled and stored to enable future reinstatement
if desired,
(iii) the machine should be displayed internally as a ‘sculptural’ element to prevent
any spurious interpretation arising from false linkages with other parts of the
building,
(iv) the machine should be cleaned only to the extent required to make it
presentable in an eating environment (i.e., judicious brushing and washing), and,
(v) the function and historical associations of the machine should be interpreted.

Not applicable to this application; Already undertaken during previous works.

Conclusion: The proposed works address the policies outlined in in the
Conservation Management Plan August 2000.
