7.2.20.3.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Toowong—Auchenflower 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) Toowong and Auchenflower play an important role in inner western Brisbane by providing a mix of offices, shops and residences in a high-quality urban environment.
(b) Renewal is focused in the 2 transit-oriented centres in the Toowong centre precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) and Auchenflower heart precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-005), where the greatest mixture of land uses are contained.
(c) The 2 centres of Toowong and Auchenflower each have a distinct role and identity, with an intensity of development, urban form and mix of uses appropriate for that centre.
(d) The 2 centres provide a range of knowledge and medical-based employment opportunities and capitalise on their strong economic ties to Milton and St Lucia.
(e) Outside the Toowong centre precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) and Auchenflower heart precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-005), a mixture of new and established residential areas are supported by a network of public spaces and community facilities.
(f) Higher density development is located in areas with high amenity, close to major open space or the Brisbane River, or in centres and around major public transport to promote a legible centre structure and support transit oriented development.
(g) Lower density development is located predominantly to the west of the railway line in constrained or less-accessible areas, providing a transition to existing lower density areas and the Character residential zone.
(h) 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.
(i) A mixture of dwelling types is encouraged, to cater for the broad lifestyle and household needs of the community, particularly key workers, students and short-term visitors.
(j) Adaptable housing and affordable housing is encouraged to cater to the needs of existing and future residents.
(k) New development along the river’s edge on the former ABC site improves public river access and provides appropriate building design using setbacks, bulk and separation and the provision of public open space.
(l) The heritage value of Middenbury House is protected and enhanced, through the retention, refurbishment and re-use of this building.
(m) Development achieves a height and density that makes efficient use of land, but does not overburden local transport, infrastructure, public space or community facilities.
(n) Development enhances the public realm and pedestrian and cycle movement with a network of parksarcades and plazas (e.g. predominantly hard-surfaced open space used by the general public).
(o) Development encourages walking, cycling and public transport as attractive options for daily travel for residents, employees and visitors, and improves pedestrian/cycle connections to key destinations.
(p) Development contributes to the creation of new public spaces and improves existing public spaces, ensuring casual surveillance, providing new pedestrian connections and where possible, integrating with and providing direct access to open space.
(q) The Brisbane River has a renewed focus within the neighbourhood plan area, and residents, employees and visitors are provided with easy access to active and passive recreational opportunities that make the most of this important natural asset.
(r) Important views and vistas to the Brisbane River and Mt Coot-tha, as identified in Figure b are retained from Sylvan Road, Toowong Memorial Park and Middenbury House.
(s) Structure planning of catalyst sites identified in Figure a addresses the unique characteristics of these sites ensuring that development integrates with surrounding land, creates an attractive public realm and urban environment, provides public space and retains and re-uses on-site heritage structures.
(t) Sherwood Road functions as an active frontage–primary function, where ground-storey retail and commercial activities occur during the day and night.
(u) Sherwood Road forms an important east–west connection to the river and is enhanced by a high-quality streetscape and new public space that act as a focal point for pedestrian-oriented activities.
(v) Development addressing Sherwood Road is of a larger scale that reflects its central location, while creating a pleasant pedestrian environment.
(w) Streets function as pedestrian places; development maintains a human-scale at the street level and promotes activation of the street through appropriate location of uses and building design.
(4) Toowong centre precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct is the social and economic heart of Toowong and has a vital role as the Major Centre for inner western Brisbane.
(b) The precinct contains a range of knowledge-based employment opportunities and takes full advantage of its strong economic ties to the CBD and surrounding suburbs of Auchenflower, St Lucia and Indooroopilly, while complementing the role of these centres.
(c) The precinct contains the greatest intensity and mix of land uses in the neighbourhood plan area, providing a focal point for retail, commercial and social activities. A variety of residential uses also exists in the centre and takes advantage of the area’s proximity to public transport and the amenity provided by new public open space and the Brisbane River.
(d) Sherwood Road serves an active frontage–primary function, where the majority of retail, community and lifestyle uses are located. Sherwood Road accommodates the tallest buildings in the precinct, to improve legibility and reinforce the primacy of this centre and its role as a transit-oriented centre.
(e) High Street is the focus for non-residential development, accommodating a mixture of retail and commercial development at ground level and providing a high-quality pedestrian experience.
(f) An urban common at the intersection of High Street and Sherwood Road provides a distinctive and recognisable social hub for Toowong. Development fronting the urban common provides ground-level activation and high-quality design. Activation of Toowong Village frontages and terrace areas with retail, outdoor dining and after-hours uses is particularly encouraged. The urban common also provides a public forecourt to the Toowong railway station.
(g) Development in this precinct extends to and engages with the river, while providing public spaces that are linked to the remainder of the precinct by high-quality streets and pedestrian connections.
(h) Development on sites adjoining the Brisbane River ensures the public access to the river, and buildings adjoining riverfront public spaces include a lively blend of retail, commercial, residential and community uses.
(i) Public transport is easily accessible and is the preferred method of travelling to and from the Toowong centre. Development promotes pedestrian movement to and from public transport and centres.
(j) A new pedestrian connection supported by active building frontages is created between Sherwood Road and High Street as identified in Figure b. Improved pedestrian connections are also provided between Sherwood Road and Lissner Street, and Jephson Street and High Street.
(5) Toowong residential precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) This precinct forms the primary residential catchment to the Toowong centre, and contains medium to high-density residential uses that are suited to the diverse Toowong community.
(b) Buildings in the Toowong residential precinct are well designed and act as a transition from the high-intensity development in the Toowong centre, to the lower scale residential uses immediately to the south and west.
(6) Memorial Park precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) The focal point for this precinct is Toowong Memorial Park, which provides active and passive recreational opportunities for residents, workers and visitors. Future expansion of sporting facilities in Toowong Memorial Park is encouraged, to provide for the needs of the growing population.
(b) Well-designed medium density housing is orientated toward and activates the park. Some non-residential uses are supported at the ground level of new buildings along Sylvan Road.
(c) Future residential development may occur on the site of the Holy Spirit Church on Harriett Street at a scale commensurate with buildings on adjoining land in Ridley Street.
(d) Streets and pedestrian walkways within the precinct provide high-quality linkages between the park, other open spaces, the Toowong centre and surrounding residential areas to the north, east and west. An easily accessible pedestrian path within Toowong Memorial Park connects to the Toowong and Auchenflower centres, and park embellishments provide greater activation and increase the use of this space.
(7) Regatta riverside precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-004) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct is situated between the Toowong and Auchenflower railway stations and has Brisbane River frontage. The northern portion of the precinct contains high-density residential buildings that maintain view corridors to the river and include active street frontages. Non-residential uses are located to the south of Sylvan Road.
(b) Development in the precinct takes advantage of the amenity provided by the Brisbane River, Moorlands Park and its convenient access to public transport and the Bicentennial Bikeway.
(c) The Regatta Hotel is a key landmark in this precinct, and a major historical and entertainment venue in the neighbourhood plan area.
(d) The precinct also provides important pedestrian and cycle linkages between the Auchenflower heart precinct and Toowong centre precincts.
(8) Auchenflower heart precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-005) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct includes a mixture of health, residential, retail and commercial uses.
(b) A new centre with a neighbourhood and employment function is provided around the Auchenflower railway station and along Ridley Street, which is supported by improved street environments on Ridley Street, Chasely Street and Lang Parade. The existing centre on Milton Road between Ridley Street and Grimes Street has more of a commercial focus, with people-oriented uses being concentrated along Ridley Street and around the Auchenflower railway station.
(c) The new centre is established primarily as a key health and education cluster and is a focus for public life. Uses in this centre also include short-term accommodation, cafes, restaurants, convenience retail and commercial opportunities that activate the street and service the local community and Wesley Hospital workers and visitors.
(d) The greatest intensity in building height and density in this precinct is on land adjoining or opposite the railway line, to reinforce the primacy of the centre and maximise public transport opportunities for residents, workers and visitors.
(e) In this precinct there is an opportunity to provide a new pedestrian, cyclist and potentially bus connection across the railway line adjacent to the Auchenflower railway station. Upgrades could allow for improved access to public plazas.
(f) The Wesley Hospital continues to be the major employment generator for Auchenflower. Future medical activities are appropriate in the adjoining centre.
(g) New development at the Wesley Hospital results in an improved frontage to Auchenflower station, Moorlands Park, Land Street and Coronation Drive, along with improved pedestrian and cycle access, safety and amenity.
(9) Dunmore residential precinct (Toowong—Auchenflower neighbourhood plan/NPP-006) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct is a diverse residential environment. Some ground-level non-residential uses are supported along Lang Parade to activate Dunmore Park and complement commercial uses to the north and in the Auchenflower centre.
(b) High-density residential uses are concentrated on the eastern side of the railway line to take advantage of the amenity provided by the Brisbane River, and the proximity to high-frequency public transport.
(c) Residential uses west of the railway line are of a lower density to reflect the character values of the area, and remain consistent with the surrounding built form along Aldridge Street, Hobbs Street and Challinor Street.
