    Please view the Proposed Plans in the document library.

    Further to previous community consultation conducted by the City, the City’s Local Planning Scheme No. 3 (LPS3) has been gazetted. Development applications are required to be determined using the legislation in force at the time of the determination. As the development application is yet to be determined, a new assessment of the application has been conducted under LPS3 which no longer has building height provisions. This means that the building height is required to be assessed under the Residential Design Codes 2018 (R-Codes).

    The City is advertising the application for public comment due to the development requiring assessment under the Design principles of the Residential Design Codes for building height as outlined in the below table.

    Height proposed

    Design Principles Requirement

    Wall height – 7.5m

    Wall height – 6m

    · Adequate access to direct sun into buildings and appurtenant open spaces;

    · Adequate daylight to major openings into habitable rooms; and

    · Access to views of significance.

    Roof height – 10.2m

    The building height was designed to comply with the City’s previous Town Planning Scheme No. 2 which permitted an 8.5m wall height and 10m maximum roof height as measured from the central point of the lot. The R-Codes Deemed to comply requirement is measured from the natural ground level directly below the wall/roof.
