7.2.13.3.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Milton Station neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Milton Station neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Milton Station 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 neighbourhood plan area are:
(a) Milton is well connected to the CBD and neighbouring suburbs by transit and includes high-quality public spaces and recreation areas.
(b) Milton takes advantage of the unique character of Park Road and the proximity to the Brisbane River and the CBD.
(c) Development achieves a height and density that makes efficient use of land, but does not overburden local transport, infrastructure, public space or community facilities.
(d) Built form comprises a high-density core above and adjoining the railway station and is graduated to a more human scale at Park Road.
(e) Development creates a strong sense of place, respects historic buildings, responds to the needs of pedestrians and is underpinned by subtropical design.
(f) 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.
(g) A reduction in vehicular use and an increase in the use of alternative modes of transport such as public transport, walking and cycling are promoted through the Milton Station area, based on the principles of transit oriented development.
(h) Park Road continues to be the key entertainment and retail hub that activates the neighbourhood plan area for 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, and strengthens the unique and identifiable character of Milton as an inner-city destination.
(i) The role of Milton as a fringe business centre and employment node is strengthened, providing a variety of employment and economic opportunities to support the functions of Brisbane’s CBD.
(j) Pedestrian and cyclist movement is promoted within the area and to nearby key locations such as the Brisbane River and north across Milton Road.
(k) Ground levels of buildings are activated to provide human-scale interfaces at the street level along and adjacent to key pedestrian and cycle connections and active transport links.
(l) Building typologies respond to the role and function of streets in each precinct, and create a sense of place.
(m) Development exhibits exemplary design outcomes with a high degree of articulation and uniquely responds to Brisbane’s subtropical climate and the local character of Milton.
(n) New development is complemented by high-quality and accessible public urban recreation areas which contribute to landscape amenity and provide easy access for local residents, workers and visitors to the area.
(4) Mixed use centre precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct continues the success of Park Road as a retail, entertainment, leisure and commercial destination.
(b) This precinct supports a diverse range of uses with a predominance of retail and commercial activities to maximise the level of activity during the day and into the night.
(c) Development in this precinct takes advantage of opportunities provided by its high level of accessibility to the Milton railway station, Coronation Drive bus stops and Bicentennial Bikeway.
(d) Ground-level areas are occupied by active retail and commercial uses preferably comprising shops and food and drink outlets that have a visible presence on and interaction with the street.
(e) Land uses that generate only limited street activity (such as offices) are located above the street level and a small number of residential uses are encouraged above ground level, providing such uses are not affected by the vibrant activity at street level.
(f) New building heights in this precinct are smaller in scale than the remainder of the Milton Station neighbourhood plan area given the precinct’s qualities as a people place and location at the heart of Milton.
(g) The greatest development yields and heights in the precinct are achieved on larger lots.
(h) Development on Park Road allows sunlight and breezes into the street and enhances the level of activity through a high level of interaction with the public realm.
(i) Building form and design expresses a strong subtropical character, provides a high level of articulation and makes provision for the establishment of pedestrian awnings and street trees along Park Road.
(j) Some land in this precinct adjoins the proposed park (urban common) on the corner of Railway Terrace and Manning Street and new development on these sites presents an active frontage to the park (urban common) to enhance the amenity and safety of the public space.
(k) Streetscape improvements along Park Road support the renewal program for the precinct, including improved paving surfaces, extensive use of shade trees and a coordinated palette of street furniture.
(5) Mixed use residential precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct is located within easy walking distance of the Milton railway station and accommodates primarily residential uses with some retail and commercial uses, in a high density environment.
(b) The lower levels of residential buildings fronting Railway Terrace and Cribb Street incorporate fine-grain retail and commercial activities to generate activity along these pedestrian spines and to capitalise on the accessibility to public transport.
(c) Buildings encourage casual surveillance and achieve a human scale at ground level.
(d) The increased activity along Railway Terrace complements the established vibrancy and variety of Park Road and generates an important focal point within the area.
(e) Affordable housing is encouraged, particularly on the QBuild site on Crombie Street.
(f) Development on the QBuild site on Crombie Street includes active ground-floor uses on the Cribb Street frontage, with residential uses on the upper levels and a strong degree of interaction with the street on the Crombie Street frontage.
(g) The railway corridor provides opportunities for the development of air rights above Milton Station and the corridor itself. Greater height and plot ratio allowances are provided for development that integrates with the railway station and provides substantial improvements to the station itself, station access, and station interface with the public realm.
(h) The entrance to Milton Station from Railway Terrace is prominent in the streetscape and provides for convenient and legible paths for pedestrians and cyclists to access the platform areas and continue to Milton Road.
(i) Building heights are mixed due to greater development yields being achieved on larger lot sizes.
(j) In this precinct, development may experience a reduced level of amenity due to emissions (vibration, noise, light and odour) from the lawful industries, major sporting venues, arterial roads and commuter/freight rail lines in the surrounding area. Noise-sensitive uses are designed, sited and constructed to achieve acceptable noise levels.
(k) Railway Terrace is an important connection through the precinct and streetscape improvements (including street trees, high-quality pavements and finishes, and street furniture) are delivered by redevelopment that supports local renewal, and extends and complements the vibrancy and variety of Park Road.
(l) A park (urban common) of approximately 1,500m2 is provided in Manning Street through acquisition of land on the corner of Manning Street and Railway Terrace and part closure of Manning Street:
(i) provides public open space for residents, workers and visitors in the area, and facilitates pedestrian movement between Manning Street and Railway Terrace;
(ii) is designed to encourage both passive and active recreation and includes flood mitigation works.
(m) Development on a site immediately adjoining the park (urban common):
(i) incorporates ground-floor uses such as cafes and restaurants to increase surveillance and provide an active edge to the park (urban common); or
(ii) activates boundaries to the urban common by providing windows and pedestrian access.
(6) Core residential precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct is highly accessible to public transport, the CBD and local facilities and development in this precinct capitalises on this location by accommodating intensive residential uses.
(b) A mixture of housing types, sizes and tenures including affordable housing is provided within the precinct.
(c) Non-residential land uses are not consistent with the outcomes sought.
(d) Development comprises a tower and a podium fronting the street, with a range of building heights dependent on site area.
(e) Smaller sites may provide 1 tower, however larger sites are required to reduce visual bulk and shade impacts by providing multiple towers. Tower elements are set back from all boundaries (and each other) to allow generous landscaping, access to light and breezes for all units, the street and neighbouring development.
(f) The podium has a strong interface with the street and creates a consistent active frontage at a human scale along the street that is supported by landscaping at the street frontage to enhance the pedestrian environment and reinforce the residential nature of these streets.
(g) The provision of pavement and finishes and landscape elements supports the renewal of residential properties in the precinct.
(7) Commercial precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-004) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct accommodates predominantly office development that is highly accessible to a range of public transportation options, the CBD and other residential and entertainment activities.
(b) Residential land uses are supported as a secondary function to the primary office function of this precinct.
(c) Retail uses provide activation along Cribb Street and Little Cribb Street at ground level.
(d) Large-scale retail developments that generate car-based trips are not consistent with the outcomes sought.
(e) Development in this precinct provides a quality work environment with open space, tree-lined streets and generous landscaped setbacks between buildings.
(f) The precinct includes a number of large trees that positively contribute to the precinct’s character and buildings are designed and sited to minimise adverse impacts on these trees.
(g) Building heights in Cribb Street sub-precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-004a) are similar to the prevailing height of the Mixed use residential precinct (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) and the Core residential precincts (Milton Station neighbourhood plan/NPP-003), while the balance of the precinct is a lower height. Building heights may be mixed due to greater development yields being achieved on larger lot sizes.
(h) Buildings are bulkier at lower levels than in other precincts, reflecting the area’s office park character.
(i) A new plaza of approximately 1,000m2, as shown in Figure a, is established to meet the outdoor leisure requirements of workers and the local community.
(j) Development on sites immediately adjoining the plaza should incorporate ground-storey uses such as food and drink outlets to increase surveillance and provide an active edge to the plaza. Alternatively, development may activate boundaries to the plaza by providing windows and pedestrian access.
(k) Development encourages alternative transport options through improving linkages to Milton Station and the Coronation Drive bus stops and local bikeways including the Bicentennial Bikeway.
(l) A new active transport link is established linking Railway Terrace to the new plaza on Little Cribb Street.
(m) The existing active transport link from Little Cribb Street to the Coronation Drive bus stops and bikeway is retained and enhanced through any redevelopment.
