8.2.10 Extractive resources overlay code

8.2.10.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing development in the Extractive resources overlay, if:
(a) 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 in the Extractive resources overlay is identified on the Extractive resources overlay map and is included in the following key resource area (KRA) sub-categories:
(a) KRA resource/processing area sub-category;
(b) KRA separation area sub-category;
(c) KRA transport route separation area sub-category;
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5 and section 5.3.3.

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

8.2.10.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Extractive resources overlay code is to:
(a) Implement the policy direction in the Strategic framework, in particular:
(i) Theme 1: Brisbane’s globally competitive economy and Element 1.2 – Brisbane’s industrial economy;
(ii) Theme 3: Brisbane’s clean and green leading environmental performance and Element 3.1– Brisbane’s environmental values.
(b) Provide for the assessment of the specific suitability of development in the Extractive resources overlay.
(2) The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
(a) Development ensures that both existing key resource areas and potential future extractive resource areas of State or regional significance, including resource/processing areas and transport routes, are protected from encroaching development that is not compatible with an extractive industry use.
(b) Development for a residential or other sensitive use maintains an effective separation from a key resource area and does not encroach within the separation area from a key resource area and its transport route separation area.

8.2.10.3 Assessment criteria

The following table identifies the assessment criteria for assessable development.

Table 8.2.10.3.A—Criteria for assessable development
Performance outcomes
Acceptable outcomes
PO1
Development in the KRA resource/processing area sub-category, the KRA separation area sub-category or in the KRA transport route separation area sub-category protects the key resource area by not increasing the number of people living within proximity to these areas.
AO1.1
Development does not increase the number of dwellings or involve the introduction of the following activities to land in the KRA resource/processing area sub-category, the KRA separation area sub-category or KRA transport route separation area sub-category:
AO1.2
Development does not result in an increase in the number of lots on land in the KRA resource/processing area sub-category, the KRA separation area sub-category or the KRA transport route separation area sub-category.
PO2
Development for a use other than an extractive industry is compatible with the operation of an extractive industry, and does not introduce or increase other uses that are sensitive to the impacts of an extractive industry in the area.
AO2
Development does not:
(a) increase the number of people working or congregating in the KRA separation area sub-category or KRA transport route separation area sub-category; or
PO3
Development will not adversely affect the safe and efficient operation of vehicles transporting extractive materials.
AO3
Development does not increase the number of properties with access points to the KRA transport route.
PO4
Development is located, designed and constructed to achieve the air quality (planning) criteria in Table 8.2.10.3.B at the development, to protect a sensitive use from adverse air quality impacts from activities on land in the KRA resource/processing area sub-category or a KRA transport route.

Note—An air quality impact report prepared in accordance with the Air quality planning scheme policy can assist in demonstrating achievement of this performance outcome.

AO4
No acceptable outcome is prescribed.
PO5
Development is located, designed and constructed to achieve the noise (planning) criteria in Table 8.2.10.3.C at the development, to protect a sensitive use from adverse noise impacts from activities on land in the KRA resource/processing area sub-category or a KRA transport route.

Note—A noise impact assessment report prepared in accordance with the Noise impact assessment planning scheme policy can assist in demonstrating achievement of this performance outcome.

AO5
No acceptable outcome is prescribed.
