5.10 Categories of development and assessment—Overlays

The following table identifies where an overlay changes the categories of development or assessment from that stated in a zone or neighbourhood plan and the relevant identified requirements and assessment benchmarks.

Note—Where development is proposed on land that is included in more than one overlay, the category of development and assessment is the highest category for each aspect of development under the applicable overlay.

Editor’s note—For a proposal to be accepted development subject to compliance with identified requirements, it must meet all the identified acceptable outcomes for the applicable overlay category or sub-category in this table of assessment and any other applicable table of assessment. Where it does not meet all identified acceptable outcomes, the proposal becomes assessable development and a development application is required. Where a development application is triggered, only the specific acceptable outcomes that the proposal fails to meet need to be assessed against the corresponding assessable acceptable outcomes or performance outcomes and relevant overall outcomes. Other identified acceptable outcomes that are met are not assessed as part of the development application.
