8.2.3 Bicycle network overlay code
Note—Where this code includes performance outcomes or acceptable outcomes that relate to:
- bicycle network design and construction, guidance is provided in the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy;
- planting species selection, guidance is provided in the Planting species planning scheme policy.
Editor's note—Standards for the provision of trunk infrastructure are specified in the Priority infrastructure plan.
18.104.22.168 Assessment criteria
The following table identifies the assessment criteria for self-assessable and assessable development.
Development contributes to the safe and efficient provision and operation of the bicycle network.
Development provides cycle routes in accordance with the bicycle network classification and design standard identified on the Bicycle network overlay map and set out in the road corridor design and off-road pathways standards of the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
Note—On a site not traversed or adjoining a route on the Bicycle network overlay map, pedestrian and cyclist movement and permeability is addressed by the Subdivision code (for reconfiguring a lot) and Centre or mixed use code or residential codes (for material change of use).
Development does not compromise the provision of the bicycle network as identified on the Bicycle network overlay map.
Additional criteria for a site adjacent to or traversed by the Riverwalk–Typology 1 sub-category or Riverwalk–Typology 2 sub-category
Development contributes to the creation of publicly accessible riverfront by providing a shared, continuous riverside pathway.
Development fronting the river provides a publicly accessible riverfront pathway via a linear land dedication of 10m width as measured from the riverfront ambulatory boundary.
Development provides a high-quality, vibrant and safe riverside path with a strong pedestrian and cyclist amenity focus.
Development designs and constructs Riverwalk for the full river frontage of its site, including tree planting, furniture, lighting, balustrading and pavement treatments in compliance with the off-road pathways and public riverside facilities standards in the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
Development ensures that new Riverwalk sections are designed and constructed to connect to existing adjoining sections of the Riverwalk.
Development provides connections between the Riverwalk and adjoining riverfront premises, street networks, pathways and cross block links, public infrastructure and other destinations in compliance with the public riverside facilities standards in the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
Development ensures that Riverwalk contributes to the sense of place and cultural significance of the river with inclusion of public art to highlight:
(a) activity nodes;
(b) entrances and gateways;
(c) landmarks and features of interest;
(d) visual connectors to the river.
Development includes public art along the Riverwalk where specified in a neighbourhood plan, in compliance with the public art standards in the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
Development protects existing native riparian vegetation and enhances the Brisbane River’s landscape values.
Development retains and enhances existing riparian vegetation through the design and construction of Riverwalk.
Riverwalk and adjoining development is planted with large subtropical riparian tree species that are complementary in scale and height to the adjacent built form.
Note—For suitable plant species, refer to the Planting species planning scheme policy.
Development adjoining Riverwalk:
(a) contributes to the creation of a vibrant and active waterfront;
(b) provides direct access to Riverwalk;
(c) allows for visual interaction and surveillance of the public domain.
Development adjoining land in the Riverwalk – Typology 1 sub-category incorporates active frontages at the ground storey for a minimum of 90% of the riverside frontage.
Development adjoining land in the Riverwalk – Typology 2 sub-category orientates living areas, balconies and private open space at the ground storey to the Riverwalk frontage for passive surveillance.
Development ensures that the interface between the Riverwalk and the Brisbane River:
(a) supports a safe and publicly accessible waterfront;
(b) enhances the views of the river, both near and far.
Development ensures that the design and construction of any structure over water is in compliance with the standards in the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
Development ensures that any revetment wall:
(a) minimises impact on the riparian edge;
(b) is constructed in compliance with the standards in Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
