PLANNING REPORTS 6.

REQUEST FOR A SITING VARIATION AT 62 ARGYLE PARK ROAD, BOWEN : LOT 1 RP733990. APPLICANT: D.C. & LLYDOM (ATTACHMENT) J.D. Lowcock and Co Pty Ltd have written to Council requesting a siting relaxation for a new dwelling currently under construction. The current approval is for the wall of the residence to be 1.5m off the common boundary which complies with the Standard Building Regulations. To achieve compliance and to maintain vehicle access to the rear of the property, the designer deleted the overhang on the side of the residence. The owners have requested that the overhang of some 500mm be allowed to intrude into the setback for aesthetic reasons and environmental shading. Council is informed that the wall of the residence has no openings which would cause any privacy issue. In support of the request, Council has been requested to consider the following: Reasons for application 1. The building was originally designed with a 1.000m side boundary set-back due to Erroneous advice from our clients Draftsman. 2. Due to the relatively small size of the Lot our clients wish to preserve a minimum Clearance of 2.7000m to the other side boundary to enable access to the proposed Garage located at the rear of the Lot. 3. The addition of a 500mm roof overhang to the side of the building abutting 64 Argyle Park Road will help to shade this wall and add balance to the design with the matching roof overhang to the other side. Factors to be considered 1. Privacy is not compromised as the side wall in question contains no openings enhancing privacy from both the visual and acoustic aspects. There is temporary screening from the neighbouring property with the existing high hedge on the boundary. Furthermore, the neighbouring property has an open carport located Approximately 1.00m from this side boundary with an effective separation between the habitable parts of both dwellings in excess of 5.00m. 2. Consent of neighbour at 64 Argyle Park Road. We enclose a letter from D. Fincher and P. Jankowski dated 14 February, 2004. 3. Other supporting material. We enclose for your consideration copies of the Approved Project Drawings, an altered Site Plan

showing the approximate locations of the neighbours carport etc. photographs illustrating matters referred to above. COMMENTS: Consideration has been given to the following issues under the Standard Building Regulations for Variation of Division 2. (a)

The levels, depth, shape or conditions of the allotment and adjoining allotments. The allotment is only 611m2.

(b)

The nature of any proposed building or structure on the allotment. The building is for residential use only.

(c)

The nature of any existing or proposed buildings or structures on adjoining allotment. Ample separation is available to maintain privacy.

(d)

Whether the allotment is a corner allotment. N/A.

(e)

Whether the allotment has 2 road frontages. N/A.

Section

Proposed Amendment

Reason

1

3-32

S7

Retain maximum building height of 8.5m (2 storeys) in R1 and 12 metres (3 storeys) in R2

Development along the beachfront should be limited in height to retain breezes and views for properties located further away from the beachfront.

2

3-32

O7

Add bullet point which requires building design to reflect Bowen’s character and the dry tropical environment into consideration

Design for climate is important for the reduction of reliance on artificial cooling systems and is therefore more environmentally sustainable and pleasant to live in. Designing for the character of the town is important so that the appearance of new development respects the established coastal and historic character.

3.10

Amend the Industry Zone Table of Development

There are many industrial sites located within the urban area of Bowen. There are some uses which are not suitable to this urban environment, and as such, should be subject to a high level of assessment in some areas. The existing industrial areas within the study area are intended to move into a mixed use precinct which requires industrial uses to be

S5(g)

It will not be possible or desirable in all circumstances to not allow parks access from residential streets. Santa Barbara Parade will become a Residential R2 site and parkland is desirable in this location.

Parks are an important use within residential areas and should not be discouraged at a local level. Where parks serve a high order function, such as district level, it is desirable that the access is not from a residential street, but for neighbourhood or local parks, residential street access is considered to be appropriate.

4-36

4.14 S4(d)

Amend to “land included in the Business Zone, along Santa Barbara Parade or at a suitable rural location”.

Public dining facilities as part of Short Term accommodation is considered to be desirable along Santa Barbara Parade for tourism generation.

7

3-83

Div 9 S3.17

Insert a new subsection ”Visual Significance Special Management Area” in the Natural Features Code. (see Insert A)

Visual Amenity of the prominent areas of the town is important to maintain from inappropriate development and land clearing.

Zoning Map

- 92 11 February 2004 Land bounded by Dalrymple St, Herbert St, Santa Barbara Pde and Sinclair St should be included into the Residential (R2) Zone

Council currently has al large amount of parkland and is having difficulty in maintaining it. In all zones, a park is exempt development. Council may wish to consider increasing this level of assessment to self assessment in some zones so that they can have some control over the size, design and vegetation in the park as Council is the authority that is responsible for the park’s maintenance in the long term.

The land is currently within the Particular Development Zone which reflects its previous use. However, this site has been earmarked for residential development and therefore, the R2 Zone is considered to be the most appropriate Zone
