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.
- The minimum lot size is to be consistent with the CLEP 2010.
- The minimum width of such allotments, at the building line must be 32m.
- A front building line setback of 7.5m must be provided.
- 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
- 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%.
- 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.
- Colonnades, verandahs and awnings must be provided along pedestrian areas, particularly for buildings that will experience high volumes of pedestrian movement.
- While a variety of building designs and materials is encouraged, some continuity of style should be maintained.
- 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.
- All roof mounted plant/equipment must be designed and screened in a manner that complements the parent buildings.
