VCTS: Alternate Requirement?

Hi all,

Have searched Google and on here for any discussion about this, so be gentle.

Sydney's TTF on Sunday was intermittently endorsed with VCTS. I was pretty certain that doesn't call for any alternate/holding fuel, and was checking the AIP to confirm definitions (TAF forecasts valid for within 5nm of ARP, VC is approx 8-16km ARP (8km = 4.3nm...good one ) and the TS alternate requirement is if the storms/associated severe turb are forecast at the destination). Is the consensus that it doesn't impose any requirements?

Was thinking of asking CASA but thought I'd get a quicker response here
