9.3.5 Community facilities code

9.3.5.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing a material change of use if:
(a) self-assessable or assessable development where this code is an applicable code identified in the assessment criteria column of a table of assessment for a material change of use (section 5.5) or a neighbourhood plan (section 5.9); or
(b) impact assessable development for a use in the community facilities activity group or a use of a community nature.
(2) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5 and section 5.3.3.

Note—Development involving a residential component including multiple dwelling, residential care facility or on-site student accommodation as part of an educational establishment, is also assessed against the Multiple dwelling code and any prescribed secondary code.

Note—Community facilities is a defined activity group listed in Table SC1.1.2 in Schedule 1 that applies to uses in the Community facilities zone. When the term community facilities is used within this code it means any of the above uses to which this code is applicable.

Note—Uses within some zone precincts of the Community facilities zone are regulated by State Government legislation and are not subject to planning and development control under the planning scheme. For example, development controls for major sports stadiums such as Suncorp Stadium are regulated under the Major Sports Facilities Act 2001; and land designated for community infrastructure such as schools and hospitals under Chapter 5 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 is exempt development, to the extent that the development would otherwise be self-assessable development or assessable development under the planning scheme. Details of designations for community infrastructure are identified in Schedule 5 Land designated for community infrastructure. Where planning control of the relevant Community facilities zone precinct is relinquished by the relevant legislation or governing authority, the planning scheme provides a default position for describing and assessing the development outcomes being sought in the Community facilities zone.

Note—Where this code includes performance outcomes or acceptable outcomes that relate to:

9.3.5.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Community facilities code is to assess the suitability of development on land in the Community facilities zone and of development for community facilities in other zones.
(2) The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
(a) Development is of a design, siting, construction and built form that is suited to the facility, in accordance with the particular operational, functional and locational requirements of community services and facilities.
(b) Development is integrated or co-located with other community facilities where possible to create a multifunctional service hub.
(c) Development provides co-location of facilities in metropolitan parks with sport and recreation premises to create multipurpose facilities that can be used for a wide range of recreation and community purposes and adapted to meet changing community demands over time.
(d) Development that may limit the ongoing operation and expansion of existing uses or prejudice development of new facilities appropriate to the specific nature of the particular Community facilities zone precinct is excluded.
(e) Development ensures that the level of public and active transport, or private vehicular accessibility and car parking, for users of the facility is appropriate to the purpose, and where possible, the use is clustered within or in close proximity to centres well-serviced by public and active transport.
(f) Development:
(i) is appropriately located according to the type of proposed use;
(ii) is highly accessible and preferably integrated and co-located with complementary uses where possible;
(iii) is of a scale, height and bulk that provides a high level of amenity;
(iv) is generally consistent with the character of the area;
(v) transitions sensitively to surrounding uses;
(vi) is supported by complementary uses of appropriate scale and purpose to directly serve the employees and activities of the zone precinct, and which do not compromise the commercial, retail or community service role and function of nearby centre activities.
(g) Development for major government facilities and services is of a form suitably specific to the facility in recognition of the particular operational, functional and locational requirements of the use.
(h) Buildings and structures in the particular zone precincts are varied to present a variety of building forms, materials and facade treatments.
(i) Development complements the prevailing scale, built form and streetscape of the zone or zone precinct and surrounding areas.
(j) Development achieves satisfactory standards in managing the potential adverse impacts on the health, safety and amenity of adjoining sensitive uses, predominantly through maintaining adequate buffering between these land uses.
(k) Development achieves a satisfactory standard of environmental performance by integrating into development principles of innovative, sustainable and efficient design, construction and operation, to encourage water conservation and responsiveness to climate.
(l) Road, rail, public transport and active transport connectivity and accessibility between community facilities and key destinations is maximised, to ensure efficient and safe movement of people and goods, and a high level of accessibility for employees and visitors or patrons of the special purpose.

Editor's note—For a proposal to be self-assessable, it must meet all the self-assessable outcomes of this code and any other applicable code. Where it does not meet all self-assessable outcomes, the proposal becomes assessable development and a development application is required. Where a development application is triggered, only the specific acceptable outcome that the proposal fails to meet needs to be assessed against the corresponding assessable acceptable outcome or performance outcome. Other self-assessable outcomes that are met are not assessed as part of the development application.
