7.2.12.4.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Lutwyche Road Corridor neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan code will be achieved through overall outcomes including overall outcomes for each precinct of the neighbourhood plan area.
(3) The overall outcomes for the Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan area are:
(a) Intensive redevelopment is focused in the Lutwyche centre precinct and Windsor east precinct to reflect their role as established activity centres and their high level of accessibility to high-quality public transport nodes.
(b) Less-intensive redevelopment occurs in other locations along Lutwyche Road that are well-serviced by public transport as shown on the NPM-012.4 Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan map.
(c) In the balance of the neighbourhood plan area, established residential areas such as Gordon Park, Kedron and Wooloowin are primarily for low density residential uses with character housing retained.
(d) Intensive mixed use and residential development is focused on and takes advantage of high-quality public transport facilities that serve the Lutwyche Road Corridor neighbourhood plan area, with a concentration of employment opportunities and medium to high density residential areas within easy walking distance of public transport nodes.
(e) New development exhibits high-quality built form and landscaping that enhances the image of the Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan area and achieves a strong subtropical character.
(f) Pedestrian-focused laneways within the Lutwyche centre precincts provide a high-amenity corridor for commercial and community activities and enhance connectivity within the Lutwyche centre precincts.
(g) Lutwyche Road is a vibrant and attractive, tree-lined subtropical boulevard, with streetscape enhancements that encourage walking and cycling to major destinations within the Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan area and improve permeability.
(h) Conon and its gardens (Lot 2 on RP86282) are listed on the Queensland Heritage Register and consequently, Conon is protected and any adjoining development respects the heritage context of Conon, including its gardens.
(i) New public domain areas, community facilities, parks and improvements to existing parks, support the renewal of urban nodes and meet the needs of existing and future residents.
(j) Development is of a height, scale and form which is consistent with the amenity and character, community expectations and infrastructure assumptions intended for the relevant precinct, sub-precinct or site and is only developed at a greater height, scale and form where there is both a community need and an economic need for the development.
(4) Lutwyche centre precinct (Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development occurs in accordance with Figure a.
(b) The precinct is revitalised and expanded to allow additional office activity, commercial activity, shops, restaurants and multiple dwellings, functioning as an integrated centre.
(c) The centre includes a district community space that is integrated with the adjoining busway station and Kedron Brook parklands. A signature mixed use building that reflects contemporary architectural and sustainability best practice is supported in this location to create a visual and functional landmark.
(d) Development adjoining the busway station incorporates active ground storey frontages.
(e) Development activates the ground level where it adjoins Lutwyche Road and laneways.
(f) Laneways focus pedestrian and cyclist movement and provide an intimate, high-quality open space corridor and a distinct opportunity for the location of active commercial uses that require a high level of amenity, such as cafes and restaurants.
(g) Any redevelopment of the Fancutt Tennis Centre enhances pedestrian connectivity between Laura, East and Conon streets.
(h) New development in the Lutwyche centre precinct (Lutwyche Road Corridor neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) takes into consideration constraints posed by proposed transport infrastructure.
(i) Lutwyche centre mixed use corridor sub-precinct (Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a) has a mix of uses that provides the appeal and level of activity essential to create a vibrant place with the attributes to attract business and residents. Development in this sub-precinct:
(i) will achieve a mix of land uses and provide opportunities for employment, shopping and commercial activity, inner-city living, community facilities, entertainment, leisure and supporting services;

(iii) amalgamates sites to achieve high density residential development with a mix of commercial, retail and restaurant uses;
(iv) ensures that ground-storey areas of buildings have an active frontage to Lutwyche Road and laneways that encourage pedestrian activity through the location of intensive and interactive uses such as shops, showrooms, cafes, restaurants and extended hours services including medical centres and fitness facilities along the frontage;
(v) ensures that buildings are designed to create a human scale with a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces;
(vi) has a mix of office and residential uses on upper storeys;
(vii) focuses business and commercial activities on Lutwyche Road and laneways;

(ix) supports the renewal of properties by forming a high-quality subtropical boulevard along Lutwyche Road with distinctive finishes, street furniture and landscape elements including large shade trees;
(x) designs and sites residential uses to minimise air and noise impacts but is not expected to enjoy the peace and quiet or privacy of suburban living as this sub-precinct is located close to major transport infrastructure and contains centre activities with a high level of activity both day and night.
(j) Development in the Lutwyche centre residential corridor sub-precinct (Lutwyche Road corridor neighbourhood plan/NPP-001b):
(i) accommodates high density residential uses that take advantage of the superior accessibility to public transport and the high level of amenity afforded in this area;
(ii) ensures that buildings are designed to have a strong interface with the street and clearly defined and identifiable entrances;
(iii) encourages the redevelopment of properties in the sub-precinct and pedestrian and cyclist activity, streetscape enhancements including wider footpaths, improved paving surfaces, the extensive use of shade trees and a coordinated palette of street furniture are implemented;

7.2.12.4.3 Assessment criteria

The following table identifies the assessment criteria for assessable development.

Table 7.2.12.4.3.A—Criteria for assessable development
Performance outcomes
Acceptable outcomes
General
PO1
Development is of a height, scale and form that achieves the intended outcome for the precinct, improves the amenity of the neighbourhood plan area, contributes to a cohesive streetscape and built form character and is:
(a) consistent with the anticipated density and assumed infrastructure demand;
(b) aligned with community expectations about the number of storeys to be built;
(c) proportionate to and commensurate with the utility of the site area and frontage width;
(d) designed to avoid a significant and undue adverse amenity impact to adjoining development;
(e) sited to enable existing and future buildings to be well separated from each other and avoid affecting the potential development of an adjoining site.

Note—Development that exceeds the intended number of storeys or building height can place disproportionate pressure on the transport network, public space or community facilities in particular.

Note—Development that is over-scaled for its site can result in an undesirable dominance of vehicle access, parking and manoeuvring areas that significantly reduce streetscape character and amenity.

AO1
Development complies with the number of storeys and building heights in Table 7.2.12.4.3.B.

Note—Neighbourhood plans will mostly specify a maximum number of storeys where zone outcomes have been varied in relation to building height. Some neighbourhood plans may also specify height in metres. Development must comply with both parameters where maximum number of storeys and height in metres are specified.
