(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land within the Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan area is identified on the NPM-013.6 Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan map and includes the following precincts:
(a) Environmental protection precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-001);
(b) Established residential precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-002);
(c) Low density residential precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-003):
(i) Church and Witty roads sub-precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-003a);

(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 with variations to categories of development and assessment. Refer to Table 5.9.45.A, Table 5.9.45.B, Table 5.9.45.C and Table 5.9.45.D.

7.2.13.6.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Moggill—Bellbowrie district 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) Development in established residential areas retains the leafy and semi-rural character of the district through:
(i) minimum lot sizes of 800m2;
(ii) sensitive landscaping.
(b) Development is limited in areas of high environmental and landscape value.
(c) Development retains a viable koala population by using koala offset areas (identified in Figure a) and a range of other mechanisms.
(d) Development in new residential areas (greenfield subdivisions) minimises impacts on the environmental values and scenic amenity of the district through:
(i) large lot sizes;
(ii) buildings sited beneath ridgelines;
(iii) fauna-friendly fencing.
(e) Development protects proposed Queensland Government transport corridors, such as the Moggill Pocket Future Transport Corridor.
(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.
(4) Environmental protection precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) Dwellings are clustered using a range of lot sizes and titling options to minimise vegetation clearing and adverse scenic amenity impacts (refer to Figure b);
(b) For lots partly within the Environmental protection precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) and partly in a precinct in which residential development is consistent with the outcomes sought, development occurs on the part of the lot on which residential development is supported.
(c) Impact assessable uses that may be accommodated include very low density residential development on minimum 1ha lots, if environmental protection outcomes can be achieved.
(5) Established residential precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development retains the open semi-rural character of this precinct by ensuring lot sizes are at least 800m2 and rear lots are not created.
(6) Low density residential precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development provides a range of lot sizes to meet the needs of the growing population while retaining the open character and environmental significance of the area.
(b) Lots fronting Hawkesbury Road, Church Road, Witty Road, Priors Pocket Road and Livesay Road are at least 1,000m2 to:
(i) retain substantial mature native vegetation;
(ii) maintain the area’s open semi-rural character;
(iii) allow varied house setbacks;
(iv) reduce potential impacts between rural activities and residential development.
(c) Lots not fronting Hawkesbury Road, Church Road, Witty Road, Priors Pocket Road and Livesay Road are at least 600m2.
(d) Development within the low density residential areas (identified on NPM-013.6 Moggill—Bellbowrie neighbourhood plan map) retains valuable koala habitat by clearly separating residential uses from habitat vegetation.
(7) Multi-purpose centres precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan/NPP-004) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development provides the retail and business services required to meet the day-to-day needs of the area's population.
(8) University of Queensland Pinjarra Hills precinct (Moggill—Bellbowrie district neighbourhood plan NPP-005) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development supports the University of Queensland Pinjarra Hills campus role as a regionally significant educational facility.
