7.2.23.1 Wakerley neighbourhood plan code

7.2.23.1.1 Application

(1) This code applies to assessing a material change of use, reconfiguring a lot, operational work or building work in the Wakerley 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 Wakerley neighbourhood plan area is identified on the NPM-0023.1 Wakerley neighbourhood plan map and includes the following precincts:
(a) Residential development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001):
(i) Residential a sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a);
(ii) Residential b sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001b);
(iii) Residential c sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001c).
(b) Industrial development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-002).
(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 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.

7.2.23.1.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Wakerley neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Wakerley area neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Wakerley 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 creates functional and integrated communities.
(b) Land subject to development constraints, character or environmental values indicated in a figure in this neighbourhood plan code or shown on an overlay map are protected from inappropriate development in order to maintain its character, and natural and ecological significance.
(c) Open space, parks and recreational facilities meet the needs of the community and are located in accessible locations that are well connected within the neighbourhood plan area.
(d) Development in a potential development area addresses the location of the land, availability of services, environmental constraints, amenity, and existing patterns of development, to ensure an integrated development outcome.
(e) Non-residential uses not consistent with the outcomes sought in residential potential development areas include, club, community care centre, educational establishment, food and drink outlet, health care services, hotel, hospital, indoor sport and recreation, relocatable home park or service station.
(f) Neighbourhood centres identified in the neighbourhood plan serve the retail, commercial, community and service needs of the local community. Centre activities do not expand outside of these identified sites and other land already included in a zone in the centre zones category.
(g) Stormwater management basins are provided where indicated in Figure a to assist in meeting stormwater management quality and quantity objectives. Development north of Tilley Road and east of the proposed Tilley Road extension manages stormwater flows in the interim, prior to the construction of the regional wetland in this area using measures such as on-site wetlands or basins.

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.

(4) Residential development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) The precinct provides for a mix of housing types, styles and densities, in particular, where indicated in Figure a:
(i) Very low density residential: comprises dwelling houses up to 5 dwellings per hectare to ensure minimal disturbance to areas of environmental and scenic value;
(ii) Low density residential – area 1: comprises dwelling houses up to 10 dwellings per hectare;
(iii) Low density residential – area 2: comprises dwelling houses up to 15 dwellings per hectare where small lots and are a minimum of 400m2 and located close to centres and public transport routes;
(iv) Low density residential – multiple dwellings: contains a mix of small lot dwelling houses, dual occupancy and multiple dwellings up to 25 dwellings per hectare;
(v) reconfiguring a lot in the Emerging community zone that results in a lot less than 5ha has regard for environmental values of the site and significant vegetation.

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.

(b) Development in the Residential a sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001a):
(i) provides for very low and low density residential development due its valuable landscape features.
(c) Development in the Residential b sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001b):
(i) provides for very low density residential development due to its valuable landscape features.
(d) Development in the Residential c sub-precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-001c):
(i) provides for very low density and low density residential development.
(5) Industrial development precinct (Wakerley neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) Development addresses the land use intent as indicated in Figure a.
(b) Shared access is provided to the industry area on Ingleston Road. Industrial development fronting New Cleveland Road is designed to create attractive streetscapes incorporating extensive landscaping and coordinated signage.
(c) Development adjacent to the tributary of Bulimba Creek traversing the eastern part of the industry area and flowing north into the Numgubbah Swamp comprises low impact industry or service uses that are compatible with the environmental values of the corridor and with nearby residential land. This corridor is progressively rehabilitated.

7.2.23.1.3 Assessment criteria

The following table identifies the assessment criteria for self-assessable and assessable development.
