watermark Mitchelton neighbourhood plan code Application

(1) This code applies to assessing a material change of use, reconfiguring a lot, operational work or building work in the Mitchelton neighbourhood plan area if:
(a) assessable development where this code is an applicable code identified in the assessment benchmarks column of a table of assessment for a neighbourhood plan (section 5.9); or
(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land in the Mitchelton neighbourhood plan area is identified on the NPM-013.5 Mitchelton neighbourhood plan map.
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5, section 5.3.2 and section 5.3.3.

Note—The following purpose, overall outcomes, performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes comprise the assessment benchmarks of this code.

Note—This neighbourhood plan includes a table of assessment. Refer to Table 5.9.44.A, Table 5.9.44.B, Table 5.9.44.C and Table 5.9.44.D. Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Mitchelton neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Mitchelton neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Mitchelton neighbourhood plan code will be achieved through overall outcomes.
(3) The overall outcomes for the neighbourhood plan area are:
(a) Development creates functional and integrated communities.
(b) Land subject to development constraints, character or environmental values specified in Figure a or shown on an overlay map is protected from inappropriate development in order to maintain its character, natural and ecological significance.
(c) Open space, parks and recreational facilities meet the needs of the community and are located in accessible locations that are well connected within the neighbourhood plan area.
(d) Development in a potential development area specified in Figure a addresses the location of the land, availability of services, environmental constraints, amenity, and existing patterns of development, to ensure an integrated development outcome.
(e) Residential development provides for a mix of housing types, styles and densities.

Note—Densities and yields are to be calculated excluding parts of the site that are not within a potential development area. These include areas with development constraints or character or environmental values identified in overlay maps. Yields and maximum gross floor area for multiple dwellings and dual occupancy are to be calculated across the potential development area including all access ways and roads respectively.

(f) Development in the northern section of the potential development area:
(i) is a low density residential area based on minimising disturbance to natural values including areas identified on the Significant landscape trees overlay;
(ii) employs sensitive land clearing, run-off management and design construction techniques that minimise land instability and erosion problems;
(iii) retains portions of the site where the gradient is 1 in 3 or greater in a rural or semi-natural state. Performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes
