(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 5.9.56.A, Table 5.9.56.B, Table 5.9.56.C and Table 5.9.56.D.

7.2.18.1.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Racecourse precinct 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) The Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses remain as racecourses and racing facilities and are upgraded to world-class standards by incorporating a mix of residential and retail uses on select areas surplus to horse racing needs. This reinforces their role as significant horse-racing venues through the progressive redevelopment of racing and spectator facilities to international standards and development of new higher density mixed use development community facilities. This redevelopment is consistent with the outcomes sought as it ensures the financial viability of both racecourses.
(b) The Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses remain the principal foci for metropolitan horse racing in South East Queensland and elements of historical and cultural heritage significance are protected.
(c) The Hendra area continues to support the racing industry by providing equine-related services, residential accommodation and stables. Over time, the area's importance for stables will diminish as new stables are established within the grounds of the racecourses.
(d) The predominant low and low–medium density residential area is retained, with select locations for higher density mixed use development along arterial roads and within select areas of the Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses, where impacts can be best managed and access to public transport is available.
(e) Racecourse Road continues to be the focal point for the area’s retail, small business and cafe/dining activities. The proximity of the neighbourhood plan area to the Brisbane Airport also supports complementary uses such as short-term accommodation.
(f) The proximity of the neighbourhood plan area to the airport means that aircraft noise will be greater than other areas of the city.
(g) New development incorporates a built form that addresses the street, respects the established character and provides noise mitigation, including for aircraft, rail and road traffic noise.
(h) Access onto arterial roads is rationalised to improve traffic movements servicing key economic infrastructure, such as the Brisbane Airport and Australia Trade Coast.
(i) Landscaping and water features are designed to manage potential wildlife hazards for aircraft.
(j) Development is contained within the precincts as described in Table 7.2.18.1.3.B.
(k) 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) Racecourse Road precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) The Racecourse Road centre remains the focus of business activity and community life in the Racecourse Precinct. Racecourse Road consolidates its role as the primary commercial/retail, entertainment and leisure centre in the neighbourhood.
(b) Uses consistent with the outcomes sought in the precinct include centre activities (a mix of active uses at ground level such as shops, offices, cafes and services), childcare centre, community care centre, indoor sport and recreation (gymnasium), multiple dwellings (located above ground), office (small-scale commercial offices located above ground) and short-term accommodation.
(c) Development in the precinct provides a human scale to the street while also managing impacts on the adjoining Low density residential zone and the Low–medium density residential zone. The maximum building height on sites containing buildings built in 1946 or before contributes to the traditional building character of the precinct.
(d) Increased gross floor area is appropriate on consolidated development sites in the precinct and development rationalises vehicle access to Racecourse Road and improves the pedestrian environment and safety.
(e) Driveway crossovers to Racecourse Road and Kingsford Smith Drive are limited to achieve a safe and continuous pedestrian spine. Additional access to Racecourse Road or Kingsford Smith Drive is not consistent with the outcomes sought. Access for car parking and servicing is via side streets and shared where possible. Car parking and servicing areas are located behind or under buildings to ensure a continuous active frontage is provided to the street.
(f) Artwork and entrance features reinforce the precinct’s identity and sense of place.
(5) Racecourses precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) Integrated planning outlining the long-term vision for the racecourses, including the racing land uses and ancillary uses and buildings; mixed use development; built form and heights; publicly accessible open space and community facilities; vehicular (including servicing) and pedestrian/cycle access and connectivity; heritage; and view corridors is demonstrated through a structure plan.
(b) The cultural heritage significance of Eagle Farm contributes to the development of the racing industry in Queensland. The heritage-listed buildings, structures, gardens and significant trees continue to be protected and buildings are adaptively re-used for non-residential purposes.
(c) New horse training facilities, day stables, restored and realigned track surfaces, new grandstands and off-street parking areas, located infield of each track, attract and accommodate event visitors and minimise impacts on the surrounding neighbourhood. These facilities and amenities provide multipurpose uses with a broader range of activities including markets, concerts and festivals, occurring on both courses outside of race days.
(d) A range of land uses occur over 19ha of land across both Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses. New development embodies a high standard of architectural design and sensitively integrates with the heritage features of the racecourses, while establishing a cohesive built form identity for the precinct. Development density, height and land use capitalises on the proximity to transit and does not prejudice the current or future operations of Brisbane Airport.
(e) This precinct also retains significant active and passive recreation open spaces. The privately owned component of the existing park at the intersection of McGill Avenue, Lancaster Road and Kitchener Road, is to be remediated and transferred to public ownership. A second park, situated in the south-eastern corner of the Eagle Farm Racecourse site fronting Nudgee Road, is obtained through development infrastructure contributions. Community facilities including the bowls club and scout hall are retained for community use. Additional community recreation facilities are consistent with the outcomes sought in this precinct.
(f) Development in the Eagle Farm racing sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002a):
(i) provides a horse-racing venue and associated facilities of international standards as well as public parkland;
(ii) involves uses that are consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including animal keeping (stable), outdoor sport and recreation, park and veterinary service.
(g) Development in the Eagle Farm mixed use sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002b):
(i) caters for mixed use residential, retail, commercial uses and parkland with the dominant land use being residential;
(ii) also provides an internal network for pedestrian, cycle and vehicle access that gives convenient and safe linkages to Racecourse Road, Nudgee Road, local communities and development north of Hampden Street;
(iii) involves uses that are consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including centre activities (where childcare centre, community use, community care centre, educational establishment, food and drink outlet, health care service, indoor sport and recreation, multiple dwelling, office, shop (supermarket) and short-term accommodation;

Note—Development of a shop (supermarket) occurs after the completion of residential development in the sub-precinct. The supermarket forms part of a single building located at a podium level, so that it integrates with other uses into the development design.

(iv) provides vehicular access via a new road that connects to Nudgee Road with an upgraded intersection at Hampden Street. Other vehicular access directly to Nudgee Road is not consistent with the outcomes sought. In addition, the sub-precinct provides an internal network for pedestrian, cycle and vehicle access that gives convenient and safe linkages to Racecourse Road, Nudgee Road and local community facilities.
(h) Development in the Eagle Farm community use sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002c):
(i) retains the historic scout hall for meeting purposes or similar community functions;
(ii) ensures that community uses including the bowls club and State Emergency Service facility are also retained and improved. Additional community recreation facilities are consistent with the outcomes sought;
(iii) provides for some residential purposes, including short-term accommodation, subject to integration with the above community uses;
(iv) does not support direct vehicle access onto Nudgee Road from this sub-precinct;
(v) has uses consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including club, community use, indoor sport and recreation, multiple dwelling, park and short-term accommodation.
(i) Development in the Doomben racing and community use sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002d):
(i) retains a horse-racing venue and ancillary racing facilities as well as providing community facilities and publicly accessible open space;
(ii) has uses consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including animal keeping (stable), outdoor sport and recreation, park and veterinary service.
(j) Development in the Doomben south sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-002e):
(i) contains uses that minimise residential exposure to aircraft noise, are low traffic generators, complement the scale of surrounding residential development and support the horse-racing industry, as well as stables for community-based equestrian activities, subject to adequate landscape screening and setbacks to residential development;
(ii) incorporates retention of racecourse facilities, including racing-day stalls and a grandstand;
(iii) has uses consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including club, community use, community care centre, indoor sport and recreation, outdoor sport and recreation, multiple dwelling (where located outside of the 20 ANEF contour), park, short-term accommodation, veterinary service, utility installation, warehouse (self storage facility) and utility installation;
(iv) does not support uses inconsistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including childcare centre, dwelling house, food and drink outlet, multiple dwelling (where located inside the 20 ANEF contour), office and shop;
(v) provides vehicular access from Hampden Street. Direct vehicular access to Nudgee Road is not consistent with the outcomes sought. Development ensures safe and convenient public access is provided to public recreation areas, including horse-riding spaces, within the grounds of Doomben Racecourse.
(6) Kingsford Smith Drive precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) This precinct predominantly contains residential and commercial (office) uses.
(b) Residential development along Kingsford Smith Drive provides a transition between the high-rise development of Northshore Hamilton and, the low- and low-to-medium-scale residential development north of Allen Street. The interface with existing low to medium density residential uses outside of the precinct along the north and south of Allen Street is managed with transitions in height and scale, to protect the amenity of adjoining low to medium density development.
(c) Development for short-term accommodation caters for travellers, given the location’s proximity to the city, Brisbane Airport, and convenient access to other destinations via the arterial road network.
(d) New development respects the established surrounding character of the precinct by providing significant rear building setbacks and vegetated screening to lots fronting Allen Street and incorporating traditional character elements in building design where within the Allen Street streetscape.
(e) Development in the Kingsford Smith Drive west sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-003a):
(i) involves uses that are consistent with the outcomes sought in the area including office, multiple dwelling and short-term accommodation;
(ii) does not support uses inconsistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including food and drink outlet and shop;
(iii) does not support retail activities given the difficulties of providing access onto Kingsford Smith Drive;
(iv) does not provide direct access onto arterial roads, including Kingsford Smith Drive and Nudgee Road. Alternative access is obtained from Allen Street or Seymour Road via a single crossover and is shared where possible;
(v) must not compromise future upgrades of Kingsford Smith Drive and Nudgee Road. Any buildings, structures, fixtures and landscaping associated with development are located outside the area required for the upgrading of Nudgee Road and Kingsford Smith Drive.
(f) Development in the Kingsford Smith Drive east sub-precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-003b):
(i) has uses consistent with the outcomes sought in the sub-precinct including multiple dwellings and short-term accommodation;
(ii) provides alternative access to Kingsford Smith Drive for new development. Development site access for car parking from Allen Street, Oxford Street or College Street is via a single crossover and is shared where possible. Additional access to Kingsford Smith Drive is not consistent with the outcomes sought.
(7) Hendra stables precinct (Racecourse precinct neighbourhood plan/NPP-004) overall outcomes are:
(a) The Hendra Stables precinct is an area where stables are likely to be sited. New stables in this area maintain an appropriate level of amenity for the land uses on and near the site of the stables development.
