S10.4.1 New detached dwelling houses to the rear of Yamba cottage

  1. New stand-alone dwellings must have a footprint not exceeding 150m2 excluding garages.
  2. Each dwelling must have a maximum width of 15m and a minimum of 20-25m separation must be provided between each new dwelling in accordance with the development concept plan shown at Figure 10-2.
  3. The maximum height of new dwellings is 1 storey with attic rooms permissible where the pitch of the roof does not exceed 35 degrees.
  4. Dwellings and additions must be constructed using appropriate materials to achieve a light-weight appearance which are complementary to Yamba cottage. Such materials may include timber or cladding for external walls, corrugated metal roofing and guttering in non-reflective colours, and minimal use of masonry and brickwork (e.g. foundation plinths only).
  5. New dwellings must address the internal access road, with private open space being provided behind the dwelling on the lower slopes.
  6. Preference must be given to locating car parking underneath the dwellings wherever the fall of the land permits this, with vehicular access achieved via a driveway beside each dwelling.
  7. If the car parking cannot be located underneath the dwelling, car parking may be provided at-grade in the form of one enclosed garage not exceeding 20m2 and a single carport attached to the garage. At-grade car parking must be designed so that it is not visually dominant when viewed from the front of the dwelling. Preference must be given to locating at-grade car parking behind the rearmost point of the dwelling rather than integrating the garaging with the front fa├žade of the dwelling.
  8. Post and rail / post and wire fencing must be used to delineate the side and rear boundary lines between allotments, with screening vegetation used to enhance privacy where necessary. Fences forward of the building line are not permitted in any form. Solid non-transparent boundary fencing is not permitted.
