7.2.13.4.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Mitchelton centre neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Mitchelton centre neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Mitchelton centre 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) Mitchelton centre develops as a Major Centre and will build on its existing provisions of retail, commercial and education services, and community sectors to become the major location for these activities in the north-western corridor of Brisbane.
(b) Development creates a diverse, integrated, mix of centre activities hosting shop and office uses, higher density residential dwellings and a range of community and recreational facilities that are concentrated around existing public transport nodes to support greater use of public transport services and attract further investment in new public transport facilities in and serving the Mitchelton centre.
(c) 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.
(d) Higher density development requires larger sites that will be achieved through lot amalgamation.
(e) New houses and other development in areas with strong representation of buildings built in 1946 or before, complement traditional streetscape characteristics. In specified residential areas along roads with a high volume of traffic, the introduction of appropriate new uses is encouraged, where this leads to the preservation of heritage or character buildings.
(f) A range of community facilities and services is supported in the neighbourhood plan area that caters to residents, employees and visitors. New development assists in providing community spaces to meet the needs of the growing local community. Community facilities are supported to co-locate with public and private open space.
(g) Open space, including Kedron Brook, is an integral part of the local active transport network and offers a variety of accessible and comfortable community meeting places and recreational spaces.
(4) Brookside precinct (Mitchelton centre neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) Brookside Shopping Centre is supported to expand as the key economic, retail and services activity area for the north-western suburban corridor from Gaythorne to Ferny Grove.
(b) Higher density mixed use development is concentrated in Mitchelton between Osborne Road, Kedron Brook and the Ferny Grove railway corridor.
(c) The Brookside bus interchange promotes high levels of public transport patronage and reinforces the precinct as a Major Centre and supports transit oriented development outcomes.
(d) The land use mix and building design within the sub-precincts supports the creation of vibrant, active public spaces and active ground storey shopping streets with high density residential uses above.
(e) Brookside precinct will be a primary focus for new development due to the available infrastructure.
(f) Development integrates active transport and site landscaping with the Kedron Brook open space and waterway corridor.
(g) For development in the Brookside A sub-precinct (Mitchelton centre neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a):
(i) Development in the sub-precinct supports high density residential.
