5.5.2 Built Form and Design


Lot Dimensions / Subdivision

In new industrial areas, Council accepts that subdivision will result in the creation of allotments of varying sizes and dimensions to satisfy differing development requirements.

  1. The minimum lot size is to be consistent with the CLEP 2010.
  2. The minimum width of such allotments, at the building line must be 32m.


  1. A front building line setback of 7.5m must be provided.
  2. Side and rear setbacks will be assessed on the merits of the application and subject to the requirements of the Building Code of Australia.

Building Materials & Appearance

  1. All elevations are to be constructed predominantly in masonry or textured pre-cast concrete panels. Non-reflective roof surfaces are mandatory. Reflective materials such as mirror glass, metal sheet, white or off-white metal colours will not be permitted. The reflectivity index for glass used externally in the construction of a building (as a curtain wall or the like) must not exceed 20%.
  2. Development, which is free standing or abutting adjoining buildings, must avoid large, blank wall surfaces when viewed from a public place or a residential area. Substantial elevations must be articulated by either structural variation and/or a blend of external finishes and colours and decorative elements.
  3. Colonnades, verandahs and awnings must be provided along pedestrian areas, particularly for buildings that will experience high volumes of pedestrian movement.
  4. While a variety of building designs and materials is encouraged, some continuity of style should be maintained.
  5. Proposed buildings on site adjoining land zoned for open space and/or riparian areas must have regard to the visual and functional opportunities of the location.
  6. All roof mounted plant/equipment must be designed and screened in a manner that complements the parent buildings.
