Part 5 Tables of assessment

5.1 Preliminary

The tables in this part identify the categories of development, the category of assessment and the assessment benchmarks for assessable development within the planning scheme area.

5.2 Reading the tables

The tables identify the following:

(1) The category of development:
(a) prohibited;
(b) accepted, including accepted with requirements; and
(c) assessable development that requires either code or impact assessment;
(2) The category of assessment - code or impact - for assessable development in:
(a) a zone and where used, a precinct of a zone;
(b) a neighbourhood plan and where used, a precinct of a neighbourhood plan;
(c) an overlay where used;
(3) The assessment benchmarks for assessable development including:
(a) whether a zone code or specific provisions in the zone code applies (shown in the 'assessment benchmarks' column);
(b) if there is a neighbourhood plan, whether a neighbourhood plan code or specific provisions in the neighbourhood plan code apply (shown in the 'assessment benchmarks' column);
(c) if there is an overlay:
(i) whether an overlay code applies (shown in the table in section 5.10); or
(ii) the assessment benchmarks as shown on the overlay map (noted in the 'assessment benchmarks' column) applies;
(d) any other applicable code(s) (shown in the 'assessment benchmarks' column).
(4) Any variation to the category of assessment (shown as an 'if' in the 'category of assessment' column) that applies to the development.

Note—Development will only be taken to be prohibited development under the planning scheme if it is identified as prohibited development in schedule 10 of the Regulation.

Editor’s note—Examples of matters that can vary the category of assessment are gross floor area, height, number of people or precinct provisions.

Note—Where a use forms part of an activity group and is also listed as an individual use in the same table or another table, then the categories of development and assessment associated with the individual listing has primacy. For example, if the centre activity group is identified as having a particular category of development or assessment in a centre zone table of assessment, where an individual centre activity group use, such as parking station, is also listed in the zone table or listed as a variation in a neighbourhood plan table, then that individual use listing has primacy over the activity group listing.

5.3 Categories of development and assessment

5.3.1 Process for determining the categories of development and assessment for assessable development

The process for determining a category of development and category of assessment is:

(1) For a material change of use, establish the use by reference to the use definitions in Schedule 1;
(2) For all development, identify the following:
(a) the zone or zone precinct that applies to the premises, by reference to the zone map in Schedule 2;
(b) if a neighbourhood plan or neighbourhood plan precinct applies to the premises, by reference to the neighbourhood plan map in Schedule 2;
(c) if an overlay applies to the premises, by reference to the overlay map in Schedule 2;
(3) Determine if the development is accepted development under schedule 6 of the Regulation;

Editor’s note—Schedule 6 of the Regulation prescribes development that a planning scheme can not state is assessable development where the matters identified in the schedule are met.

(4) Determine if the development is assessable development under Schedule 10 of the Regulation by reference to the tables in section 5.4 (Regulated categories of development and assessment prescribed by the Regulation);
(5) If the development is not listed in the tables in section 5.4 (Regulated categories of development and assessment prescribed by the Regulation), determine the initial category of development and assessment by reference to the tables in:
(a) section 5.5 Categories of development and assessment—Material change of use;
(b) section 5.6 Categories of development and assessment—Reconfiguring a lot;
(c) section 5.7 Categories of development and assessment—Building work;
(d) section 5.8 Categories of development and assessment—Operational work;
(6) A precinct of a zone may change the category of development or assessment and this will be shown in the 'Categories of development and assessment' column of the tables in section 5.5, section 5.6, section 5.7 and section 5.8;
(7) If a neighbourhood plan applies, refer to the table(s) in section 5.9 Categories of development and assessment—Neighbourhood plans, to determine if the neighbourhood plan changes the category of development or assessment for the zone;
(8) If a precinct of a neighbourhood plan changes the category of development or assessment this will be shown in the 'Categories of development and assessment' column of the table(s) in section 5.9;
(9) If an overlay applies, refer to section 5.10 Categories of development and assessment—Overlays, to determine if the overlay further changes the category of development or assessment.

5.3.2 Determining the categories of development and assessment

(1) A material change of use is assessable development requiring impact assessment:
(a) unless the table of assessment states otherwise; or
(b) if a use is not listed or defined; or
(c) unless otherwise prescribed in the Act or the Regulation.
(2) Reconfiguring a lot is assessable development requiring code assessment unless the tables of assessment state otherwise or unless otherwise prescribed in the Act or the Regulation.
(3) Building work and operational work are accepted development, unless the tables of assessment state otherwise or unless otherwise prescribed in the Act or the Regulation.
(4) Where an aspect of development is proposed on premises included in more than one zone, neighbourhood plan or overlay, the category of development or assessment for that aspect is the highest category under each of the applicable zones, neighbourhood plans or overlays.
(5) Where development is proposed on premises partly affected by an overlay, the category of development or assessment for the overlay only relates to the part of the premises affected by the overlay.
(6) For the purposes of Schedule 6, Part 2 Material change of use section 2(2)(d)(i) or (ii) of the Regulation, an overlay does not apply to the premises if the development meets the acceptable outcomes that form the requirements for accepted development in the relevant overlay code.
(7) If development is identified as having a different category of development or category of assessment under a zone than under a neighbourhood plan or an overlay, the highest category of development or assessment applies as follows:
(a) accepted development subject to requirements prevails over accepted development;
(b) code assessment prevails over accepted development where subject to requirements and accepted development;
(c) impact assessment prevails over code assessment, accepted development where subject to requirements and accepted development.
(8) Despite subsection 5.3.2(4) and (7) above, a category of development or assessment in a neighbourhood plan overrides a category of development or assessment in a zone, and a category of development or assessment in an overlay overrides a category of development or assessment in a zone or neighbourhood plan.
(9) Provisions of Part 10 may override any of the above.
(10) The category of development prescribed under schedule 6 of the Regulation overrides all other categories of development or assessment for that development under the planning scheme to the extent of any inconsistency.

Editor’s note—Schedule 7 of the Regulation also identifies development that the state categorises as accepted development. Some development in the schedule may still be made assessable under the planning scheme.

(11) Despite all of the above, if development is listed as prohibited development under Schedule 10 of the Regulation, a development application can not be made.

Note—Development is to be taken to be prohibited development under the planning scheme only if it is identified in Schedule 10 of the Regulation.

5.3.3 Determining the requirements for accepted development and assessment benchmarks and other matters for assessable development

(1) Accepted development does not require a development approval and is not subject to assessment benchmarks. However, certain requirements may apply to some types of development for it to be accepted development. Where nominated in the tables of assessment, accepted development must comply with the requirements identified as acceptable outcomes in the relevant parts of the applicable code(s) as identified in the relevant column.
(2) Accepted development that does not comply with one or more of the nominated acceptable outcomes in the relevant parts of the applicable code(s) becomes code assessable development unless otherwise specified.
(3) The following rules apply in determining assessment benchmarks for each category of development and assessment:
(4) Code assessable development:
(a) is to be assessed against all the assessment benchmarks identified in the assessment benchmarks column;

Note—The local planning instrument assessment benchmarks identified in the assessment benchmarks column are:

(b) that occurs as a result of development becoming code assessable pursuant to Part 5 sub-section 5.3.3(2) must:
(i) be assessed against the assessment benchmarks for the development application, limited to the subject matter of the required acceptable outcomes that were not complied with or were not capable of being complied with under Part 5 sub-section 5.3.3(2);

Note—The local planning instrument assessment benchmarks identified in the assessment benchmarks column are:

(ii) comply with all required acceptable outcomes identified in Part 5 sub-section 5.3.3(1) other than those mentioned in Part 5 sub-section 5.3.3(2);
(c) that complies with the purpose, overall outcomes and the performance outcomes or acceptable outcomes of the code complies with the code;
(d) is to be assessed against any assessment benchmarks for the development identified in section 26 of the Regulation.

Editor's note—Section 27 of the Regulation identifies the matters code assessment must have regard to.

(5) Impact assessable development:
(a) is to be assessed against the identified assessment benchmarks in the assessment benchmarks column (where relevant);

Note—The local planning instrument assessment benchmarks identified in the assessment benchmarks column are 'the planning scheme', being the strategic framework, the purpose, overall outcomes, performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes of any relevant zone, development, overlay and neighbourhood plan code, and any supporting provision in the planning scheme and supporting planning scheme policy. In some instances the assessment benchmarks column specifies aspects of the planning scheme of greatest application.

(b) assessment is to have regard to the whole of the planning scheme, to the extent relevant;
(c) is to be assessed against any assessment benchmarks for the development identified in section 30 of the Regulation.

Note—Development is to consider cumulative outcomes and give weight to all aspects of the code. Specific performance outcomes are not to be compromised at the expense of other code elements.

Note—The first row of each table of assessment is to be checked to confirm if there are assessment benchmarks that commonly apply to general scenarios in the zone, neighbourhood plan or overlay.

Editor's note—Section 31 of the Regulation also identifies the matters that impact assessment must have regard to.

5.3.4 Prescribed accepted development

(1) This section identifies development (prescribed accepted development) which is not assessable under the planning scheme unless a higher category of assessment is stated in section 5.9 or section 5.10.

Editor's note—In interpreting Table 5.3.4.1, development is only accepted development and not assessable under the planning scheme for the development identified in the development column, in the circumstances described in the circumstances column. Development may still be assessable or accepted development subject to compliance with identified requirements against the tables of assessment, where the circumstances are outside of those identified in Table 5.3.4.1.

(2) The development which is prescribed accepted development is stated in Table 5.3.4.1.
