7.2.20.1.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing a material change of use, reconfiguring a lot, operational work or building work in the Taringa neighbourhood plan area if:
(a) assessable development where this code is an applicable code identified in the assessment criteria column of a table of assessment for neighbourhood plan (section 5.9); or
(b) impact assessable development.
(2) Land in the Taringa neighbourhood plan area is identified on the NPM-020.1 Taringa neighbourhood plan map and includes the following precincts.
(a) Taringa core precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-001).
(b) Taringa gateway precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-002).
(c) Harrys Road east precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-003).
(3) When using this code, reference should be made to section 1.5, section 5.3.2 and section 5.3.3.

Note—This neighbourhood plan includes a table of assessment. Refer to Table 5.9.74.A, Table 5.9.74.B, Table 5.9.74.C and Table 5.9.74.D.

7.2.20.1.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Taringa neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Taringa neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Taringa 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 is of a height, scale and form consistent with the intent for the relevant precinct or zone
(b) development supports a high level of accessibility and amenity for pedestrians and cyclists through an enhanced public realm including footpath widening, street tree planting, landscaping and improved walking, cycling and public transport connections, particularly to Taringa Railway Station
(c) development is concentrated in the mixed use centre of Taringa Village, in close proximity to Taringa Railway Station and high frequency bus services along Moggill Road and Morrow Street, to reinforce Taringa Village as a district centre and support greater use of public transport services
(d) development within Taringa Village promotes a vibrant, high quality public realm and streetscape with active non-residential uses at the ground storey that support an active streetscape, including pedestrian routes that directly connect to the Taringa Railway Station
(e) the form and scale of development in Taringa Village is subservient to the nearby major centres of Toowong and Indooroopilly and provides a human scale pedestrian experience at the street level.
(4) Taringa core precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcome is:
(a) development reinforces the precinct’s role as the recognisable social and retail heart of Taringa through the provision of the highest concentration and greatest mix of uses including shops, cafes, restaurants, commercial, residential and community uses.
(5) Taringa gateway precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) high density mixed use development capitalises on the precinct’s location adjoining the Taringa Railway Station and the Taringa Village centre
(b) development ensures a high level of amenity, safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists through deep tree planting along the boundary to the Taringa Railway Station, orienting balconies to increase surveillance of the station and improvements to the streetscape.
(6) Harrys Road east precinct (Taringa neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) mixed use development is provided that focuses on the delivery of high density residential development with active ground storey uses
(b) built form is sensitive to topography and proximity to the adjoining residential area, through application of the building height transition requirements of the Centre or mixed use code and presentation of a human scale to Moggill Road
(c) development contributes to the public realm through the provision of a plaza activated by cafes, restaurants and shops at the ground storey.
