watermark Calamvale district neighbourhood plan code Application

(1) This code applies to assessing a material change of use, reconfiguring a lot, operational work or building work in the Calamvale district neighbourhood plan area if:
(a) assessable development where this code is an applicable code identified in the assessment criteria column of a table of assessment for a neighbourhood plan (section 5.9); or
(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land in the Calamvale district neighbourhood plan area is identified on the NPM-003.1 Calamvale district neighbourhood plan map.
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5, section 5.3.2 and section 5.3.3.

Note—This neighbourhood plan includes a table of assessment. Refer to Table 5.9.11.A, Table 5.9.11.B, Table 5.9.11.C and Table 5.9.11.D. Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Calamvale district neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Calamvale district neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Calamvale district neighbourhood plan code will be achieved through overall outcomes.
(3) The overall outcomes for the neighbourhood plan area are:
(a) Development creates functional and integrated communities.
(b) Land subject to development constraints, character or environmental values indicated in a figure in this neighbourhood plan code or shown on an overlay map is protected from inappropriate development in order to maintain its character, natural and ecological significance.
(c) Open space, parks and recreational facilities meet the needs of the community and are located in accessible locations that are well connected within the neighbourhood plan area.
(d) Neighbourhood centres already existing in the neighbourhood plan area serve the retail, commercial, community and service needs of the local community and centre activities do not expand outside of land already included in a zone in the Centre zones category.
(e) Expansion of the Calamvale Community College integrates with surrounding pedestrian, cyclist and road networks, and existing and future residential areas.
(f) Development in a potential development area addresses the location of the land, availability of services, environmental constraints, amenity and existing patterns of development, to ensure an integrated development outcome.
(g) Residential development provides for a mix of housing types, styles and densities, in particular:
(i) Very low density residential areas as shown in Figure a which comprise dwelling houses at a yield of 5 dwellings per hectare to ensure minimal disturbance to areas of environmental and scenic value;
(ii) Low density residential – dwelling houses areas as shown in Figure a which comprise predominantly dwelling houses at a yield of 12 dwellings per hectare, with multiple dwellings only developed where waterway corridors or valued vegetation is protected through a community management scheme or appropriate mechanism;
(iii) Low density residentialdwelling houses and multiple dwellings areas as shown in Figure a which comprise development densities at a yield of 21 dwellings per hectare.

Note—Densities and yields are to be calculated excluding parts of the site that are not within a potential development area. These include areas with development constraints or character or environmental values identified in overlay maps. Yields and maximum gross floor area for multiple dwellings and dual occupancy are to be calculated across the potential development area including all access ways and roads respectively.

(h) Development in the low impact industry potential development area fronting Learoyd Road is in accordance with an industrial structure plan and the provisions of the Low impact industry zone or General industry A zone precinct of the Industry zone.
(i) Development ensures that existing industrial operations north of Learoyd Road and east of Paradise Road are not prejudiced. Assessment criteria

The following table identifies the assessment criteria for assessable development.
Table—Criteria for assessable development
Performance outcomes
Acceptable outcomes
If development for an industrial or warehouse use where on land fronting Learoyd Road
Development provides an efficient and orderly road layout which:
(a) does not adversely affect the traffic-carrying capacity of Learoyd Road;
(b) minimises conflicts between residential and industrial vehicular traffic.
Development ensures all new lots are accessed from an internal road network with a single entry point from Learoyd Road.
Development involving reconfiguring of a lot provides for adequate separation and buffering from adjoining residential uses to ensure a high level of visual amenity.
Development accommodates a densely planted, three-tiered, landscaped and mounded buffer at least 20m wide as part of the road reserve on the eastern side of the access road intersecting with Learoyd Road.
