220.127.116.11 Wakerley neighbourhood plan code
Note—This neighbourhood plan includes a table of assessment with level of assessment variations to those in sections 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 5.8 and 5.10. Refer to Table 5.9.67.A, Table 5.9.67.B, Table 5.9.67.C and Table 5.9.67.D.
Note—Where reference is made to koala food trees throughout this neighbourhood plan, the following are recommended: forest red gum (Eucalyptus tereticornis), scribbly gum (Eucalyptus racemosa), grey iron bark (Eucalyptus siderphloia), tallowwood (Eucalyptus microcorys), or other local native canopy trees.
Note—Densities and yields are to be calculated excluding parts of the site that are not within a potential development area. These include areas with development constraints or character or environmental values identified in overlay maps. Yields and maximum gross floor area for multiple dwellings and dual occupancy are to be calculated across the potential development area including all accessways and roads respectively.
18.104.22.168.3 Assessment criteria
The following table identifies the assessment criteria for self-assessable and assessable development.
Development provides an acceptable sewerage system that is not a temporary pump station to service new development.
Development provides a gravity sewerage system to new development in the area identified in Figure a.
Development does not result in stormwater flow that has adverse impacts upstream, downstream on habitats or adjacent properties.
Development with impermeable areas including dwelling houses, secondary buildings, vehicular access and all paved areas, does not exceed the following percentage of the site area for potential development areas and centres:
(a) Very low density residential: 20%;
(b) Low density residential – area 1: 50%;
(c) Low density residential – area 2: 70%;
(d) Low density residential – multiple dwellings: 75%;
Development in residential areas and for public parkland is adequately protected from industrial development to ameliorate the impact of industry noise and air pollution and facilitate wildlife movement between nearby parklands and corridors.
Development, if reconfiguring a lot for residential purposes north of New Cleveland Road where abutting the Industrial development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-002), incorporates a noise and air pollution buffer 70m wide as identified in Figure a, with a minimum 20m of the width comprising existing native vegetation or is revegetated using a layered structure of native species, including koala food species.
Development of parkland north of New Cleveland Road where abutting the Industrial development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-002):
(a) is a minimum of 70m wide;
(b) is accessible from an adjacent public street for a minimum of 50% of the length of its eastern boundary;
Development in residential areas and public parkland is appropriately buffered from major traffic routes to improve amenity and facilitate wildlife movement between nearby parklands and corridors.
Development involving reconfiguring a lot for residential development incorporates a landscaped buffer/fauna link a minimum of 20m wide along the boundary with the road corridor where indicated in Figure a, and the buffer/fauna link comprises existing native vegetation or is revegetated using a layered structure of native species, including koala food species.
Development for parkland abutting the Tilley Road extension and the Manly Road intersection with the Tilley Road extension:
(a) is a minimum of 40m wide;
(b) is accessible from an adjacent public street;
(c) comprises existing native vegetation or is revegetated using a layered structure of native species, including koala food species for a minimum width of 20m from the boundary to Manly Road or the Tilley Road extension.
Development on any street abutting the Tilley Road extension includes a verge abutting the road corridor with a minimum width of 20m, and comprises existing native vegetation or is revegetated using native trees, including koala food species.
If in the very low density residential potential development area
Development for residential purposes is designed to retain and enhance significant natural environmental values, including wildlife habitat and movement functions and existing native vegetation, minimise impacts on habitat values and landscape character and protect ecological corridors and waterway corridors.
Development has a minimum street frontage for all new lots of 40m.
Development has a development footprint plan of a size and location that:
(a) ensures a minimum of 70% of the site, or 85% of the site where in the Residential a sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a), is retained in its natural state to protect existing native vegetation or is revegetated using local native plant species including at least 50% koala food species planted at maximum 2m centres;
(b) is no more than 15% of the site area for sites in the Residential a sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a);
(c) minimises loss or fragmentation of existing native vegetation;
(d) is close to the lot boundary that has street access.
