9.3.22 Short-term accommodation code
Note—Where this code includes performance outcomes or acceptable outcomes that relate to noise impact assessment, guidance is provided in the Noise impact assessment planning scheme policy.
220.127.116.11 Assessment criteria
The following table identifies the assessment criteria for assessable development.
Development is located on a site with high accessibility to:
(a) a principal, major or district centre;
(b) high-frequency public transport with services every 15 minutes or less;
(c) long-distance transport routes;
(d) social, cultural, tourist and leisure facilities and shopping facilities.
Development is on a site located in one of the following:
(a) Principal centre zone; or
(b) Major centre zone; or
(c) District centre zone; or
(a) is on a site located in one of the following:
(i) Principal centre zone; or
(ii) Major centre zone; or
(iii) District centre zone; or
(iv) High density residential zone; or
Development ensures that where food or cooking odour is released, exhaust vents are discharged vertically and directed away from the sensitive use and separated from sensitive uses by the following distances:
(a) minimum of 6m horizontally from a sensitive use;
(b) minimum of 2m above a thoroughfare or roof with regular foot traffic.
Development is of a nature and scale which does not result in noise emissions that exceed the following criteria:
LAeq,adj,T emitted from short-term accommodation is not greater than the rating background level plus 3 at a sensitive use.
Where T is:
Where LAeq,adj,T is the A-weighted equivalent continuous sound pressure level during measurement time T, adjusted for tonal and impulsive noise characteristics, determined in accordance with the methodology described in the Noise impact assessment planning scheme policy.
Note—Rating background level is to be determined in accordance with the methodology described in the Noise impact assessment planning scheme policy.
Note—A noise impact assessment report prepared in accordance with the Noise impact assessment planning scheme policy can assist in demonstrating achievement of this performance outcome.
Development ensures mechanical plant or equipment is acoustically screened from adjoining sensitive uses.
Note—Mechanical plant includes generators, motors, compressors and pumps such as air-conditioning, refrigeration or cold room motors.
(a) provides a 2m high acoustic fence along a boundary with a sensitive use;
(b) ensures car parking areas used at night are acoustically screened from adjoining residential dwellings.
