8.2.9 Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay code

8.2.9.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing development in the Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay, 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 an overlay (section 5.10); or
(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land within the Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay is identified on the Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay map and is included in the following sub-categories:
(a) Critical assets sub-category;
(b) Critical infrastructure and movement planning area sub-category.
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5 and section 5.3.3.

8.2.9.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay code is to:
(a) Implement the policy direction in the Strategic framework in particular:
(i) Theme 2: Brisbane’s outstanding lifestyle and Element 2.3 – Brisbane’s healthy and safe communities;
(ii) Theme 4: Brisbane’s highly effective transport and infrastructure and Element 4.3 – Brisbane’s coordinated infrastructure planning and delivery.
(b) Provide for the assessment of the suitability of development in the Critical infrastructure and movement network overlay.
(2) The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
(a) Development is able to gain appropriate vehicular access to the critical movement and infrastructure network during and immediately after a natural disaster event, including floods up to the 0.05% AEP (2000 year ARI) flood event.
(b) Development with special emergency access or evaluation needs can be accessed during and immediately after a natural disaster event, or are otherwise able to maintain essential functions during these events.
(c) Development ensures that land uses, that have a potential to impact on people, property and the environment, can be efficiently accessed or evacuated by emergency services during and immediately after a natural disaster event.
(d) Development is located to allow for the efficient provision of emergency management services.
(e) Development does not cause environmental harm, risk public safety or compromise the necessary function of infrastructure essential to disaster response or the wellbeing of the community due to isolation of the development in a natural disaster event.

8.2.9.3 Assessment criteria

The following table identifies the assessment criteria for self-assessable and assessable development.

Table 8.2.9.3—Criteria for self-assessable and assessable development
Performance outcomes
Acceptable outcomes
PO1
Development ensures that air services, detention facilities, emergency services, hospital, port services and residential care facilities maintain essential functions and retain transport connections necessary for their function during a natural disaster event.
AO1
(a) has direct vehicular access to a critical route or an interim critical route; or
(b) has a hazard-free route (up to and including a 0.05% AEP (2000 year ARI) flood event) to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event; or
(c) includes upgrades to infrastructure to enable access to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event; or
(d) where the development cannot access a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event, the development:
(i) demonstrates that it services a local/district catchment and can continue to service and access that catchment during a natural disaster event;
(ii) includes a business continuity plan for the operation of the use or throughout the natural disaster event.
PO2
Development ensures that a telecommunications facility, major electricity infrastructure, substation, renewable energy facility, transport depot or utility installation which support a disaster response activity retains necessary access during a natural disaster event to ensure its continued operation.
AO2
(a) has direct vehicular access to a critical route or an interim critical route; or
(b) has a hazard-free route to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event; or
(c) includes upgrades to infrastructure to enable access to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event; or
(d) has been designed to operate in all flood events without human intervention.
PO3
Development for medium impact industry, high impact industry and special industry achieves appropriate access and egress for personnel and emergency services during a natural disaster event.
AO3
(a) has direct vehicular access a critical route or an interim critical route; or
(b) has a hazard-free route to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event; or
(c) includes upgrades to infrastructure to enable access to a critical route or an interim critical route during a natural disaster event.
