8.2.8.A Community purposes network overlay code

8.2.8.A.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing development in the Community purposes network overlay, if:
(a) assessable development where this code is an applicable code identified in the assessment benchmarks column of a table of assessment for an overlay (section 5.10); or
(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land within the Community purposes network overlay is identified on the Community purposes network overlay map and is included in the following sub-categories:
(a) Existing trunk park sub-category;
(b) Existing non-trunk park sub-category;
(c) Existing community facilities and land for community facilities sub-category;
(d) LGIP planned land for community facilities specific location sub-category;
(e) LGIP planned park acquisition specific location sub-category;
(f) LGIP planned park upgrade specific location sub-category;
(g) LGIP planned park embellishment specific location sub-category;
(h) LGIP planned corridor park specific location sub-category;
(i) Long term land for community facilities specific location sub-category;
(j) Long term park specific location sub-category;
(k) Long term corridor park specific location sub-category.
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5 and section 5.3.3.

Note—The following purpose, overall outcomes, performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes comprise the assessment benchmarks of this code.

Editor’s note—Standards for the provision of trunk infrastructure are specified in the Local government infrastructure plan.

8.2.8.A.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Community purposes network overlay code is to:
(a) Implement the policy direction in the Strategic framework in particular:
(i) Theme 4: Brisbane’s highly effective transport and infrastructure, Element 4.2 – Brisbane’s other infrastructure networks and Element 4.3 – Brisbane’s coordinated infrastructure planning and delivery;
(ii) Theme 5: Brisbane’s CityShape and Element 5.6 – Brisbane’s Greenspace System.
(b) Provide for the assessment of the suitability of development in the Community purposes network overlay.
(2) The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
(a) Development which is assumed future urban development contributes to the completion of the Community purposes network through the provision of the existing and planned infrastructure for the parks network and land for the community facilities network in the Local government infrastructure plan.
(b) Development which is not assumed future urban development contributes to the completion of the Community purposes network through the provision of additional trunk infrastructure costs for long term infrastructure for the parks network and land for the community facilities network in the Long term infrastructure plans.
(c) Development which provides existing and planned infrastructure for the Community purposes network in the Local government infrastructure plan ensures the provision, location, layout and configuration of the park and land for community facilities meets community needs and contributes quality assets.
(d) Development does not compromise the completion of the Community purposes network.

8.2.8.A.3 Performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes

Table 8.2.8.A.3—Performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes
Performance outcomes
Acceptable outcomes
If on a site in the Existing trunk park sub-category, Existing non-trunk park sub category, LGIP planned park acquisition specific location sub-category, LGIP planned park upgrade specific location sub-category, LGIP planned park embellishment specific location sub-category, LGIP planned corridor park specific location sub-category, Long term park specific location sub-category or Long term corridor park specific location sub-category
PO1
Development which is assumed future urban development provides the existing and planned infrastructure for the parks network in the Local government infrastructure plan on the site:
(a) to serve the recreational needs of Brisbane’s residents, workers and visitors on a local, district and metropolitan scale;
(b) to maximise recreational, visual, cultural and biodiversity values;
(c) of a sufficient size, suitable topography and regular shape for the intended use and anticipated intensity and level of use;
(d) to meet the requirements of intended users;
(e) to provide, in appropriate locations, that provide for a diversity of recreational opportunities and avoid duplicating facilities in nearby parks.
AO1
Development which is assumed future urban development provides land and embellishments for existing and planned infrastructure for the parks network in the Local government infrastructure plan on the site in compliance with the standards for the parks network in the Park planning and design code and the Infrastructure design planning scheme policy.
PO2
Development provides for the payment of additional trunk infrastructure costs for the following:
(a) for development completely or partly outside the priority infrastructure area in the Local government infrastructure plan;
(b) for development completely inside the priority infrastructure area in the Local government infrastructure plan:
(i) trunk infrastructure to be provided earlier than planned in the Local government infrastructure plan;
(ii) long term infrastructure for the parks network which is made necessary by development that is not assumed future urban development;
(iii) other infrastructure for the parks network associated with development that is not assumed future urban development which is made necessary by the development.

Editor’s note—The payment of additional trunk infrastructure costs under the Act for development completely inside the priority infrastructure area in the Local government infrastructure plan is to be worked out in accordance with the Charges Resolution.

Editor's note—See section 130 Imposing Development conditions (Conditions for extra trunk infrastructure costs) of the Planning Act 2016.

AO2
No acceptable outcome is prescribed.
PO3
Development protects a park shown on the Community purposes network overlay map to ensure the following are not compromised:
(a) the long term infrastructure for the parks network in the Long term infrastructure plans and an applicable neighbourhood plan;
(b) the existing and planned infrastructure for the parks network in the Local government infrastructure plan;
(c) the provision of long term, existing and planned infrastructure for the parks network which:
(i) is required to service the development or existing and future urban development in the planning scheme area; or
(ii) is in the interests of rational development or the efficient and orderly planning of the general area in which the site is situated.

Editor's note—A condition which requires a proposed development to keep permanent improvements and structures associated with the approved development clear of the area of long term infrastructure, may be imposed.

AO3
Development protects a park shown on the Community purposes network overlay map in compliance with the following:
(a) for long term infrastructure for the parks network, the Long term infrastructure plans;
