Note—The following purpose, overall outcomes, performance outcomes and acceptable outcomes comprise the assessment benchmarks of this code.

Note—This neighbourhood plan includes a table of assessment with categories of development and assessment. Refer to Table 5.9.77.A, Table 5.9.77.B, Table 5.9.77.C and Table 5.9.77.D.

Editor’s note—Under section 126 of the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, the Queensland Government directed Council to integrate the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development State Planning Regulatory Provision 2016 (the Yeerongpilly TOD SPRP) into Brisbane City Plan 2014. The categories of development and assessment in Table 5.9.77.A and Table 5.9.77.B are in accordance with the Yeerongpilly TOD SPRP and override the categories of development and assessment in the zone table of assessment. The mapped sub-categories within the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development neighbourhood plan area have been modified on the following overlay maps in accordance with Schedule 3 of the Yeerongpilly TOD SPRP:

7.2.25.1.2 Purpose

(1) The purpose of the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development neighbourhood plan code is to provide finer grained planning at a local level for the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development neighbourhood plan area.
(2) The purpose of the Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development neighbourhood plan code will be achieved through the overall outcomes including overall outcomes for each precinct of the neighbourhood plan area.
(3) The overall outcomes for the neighbourhood plan area are:
(a) A balanced mix of residential, retail, commercial and community uses create a vibrant mixed use neighbourhood.
(b) Buildings display exemplary design and a high level of visual interest in design, treatment and articulation.
(c) Innovative subtropical design and environmental sustainability are demonstrated in all aspects of development.
(d) Development incorporates features that promote a sense of place and local identity.
(e) Safe pedestrian and cycle networks integrate with the local street network including off-road pathways and end-of-trip facilities.
(f) Vehicular access points are shared between developments to limit the number of access points and maximise pedestrian amenity and safety along streets.
(g) Servicing areas and vehicular parking areas or structures are obscured from view from the street, with directional signage to assist with site legibility.
(h) Sheltered pedestrian routes are provided to public transport facilities to encourage their use.
(i) The urban form is characterised by a gradual stepping of building heights as shown on Figure b, to appropriately transition to surrounding low-rise residential to the north and high-rise residential to the west and maximise views to the central open space, Brisbane River and Brisbane CBD.
(j) A safe and welcoming place to call home is created for people from of a variety of lifestyles, ages and backgrounds.
(k) Building design encourages interaction between private and public spaces and maximises opportunities for casual surveillance of public spaces including parks, plazas, arcades and streets.
(l) A high quality urban neighbourhood is created with a distinctive identity that integrates with its setting, including the surrounding community, Brisbane River and the Queensland Tennis Centre.
(m) The history of the area is respected through the retention and reuse of heritage buildings as appropriate and sensitive integration of new development.
(n) The integration of public art creates attractive public and private spaces.
(o) A variety of high quality public places encourage social interaction and recreational activity for all age groups and abilities.
(p) Views from public spaces to heritage buildings, public transport access, the Brisbane River and other public spaces are protected as shown on Figure c.
(q) Integrated water cycle management is achieved through innovations in areas such as stormwater capture and reuse, reducing water consumption and mitigating flood impacts.
(4) Mixed use core precinct (Yeerongpilly Transit Oriented Development neighbourhood plan/NPP-001) overall outcomes are:
(a) It is the focal point for the Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan area providing a centre for business and employment.
(b) The highest levels of activity are focused along the main street as shown on Figure c to create a highly active pedestrianised environment.
(c) Retail and commercial uses are provided at ground and lower levels.
(d) Building heights do not exceed those shown on Figure b.
(e) Buildings adjacent to the open space precinct are oriented towards it and provide casual surveillance and activation.
(f) A supermarket is accommodated within the precinct, sleeved by smaller scale retail and commercial uses that front the street.
(g) The retail and commercial uses are complemented by indoor entertainment uses and outdoor dining.
(h) Development does not detract from the heritage significance of the State heritage buildings (including the animal morgue building) as shown on Figure c. Heritage values are preserved through building re-use and by providing public pedestrian linkages between building curtilages.
(i) The arcade to the north of the Veterinary School Main Building, as shown on Figure c, provides an ‘all hours’ public access connection across the precinct.
(j) Buildings are designed to be easily adapted for changes of use.
(k) Development provides an appropriate interface and interaction with the existing South Regional Business Centre.
(5) Residential mixed use precinct (Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan/NPP-002) overall outcomes are:
(a) It is primarily residential in nature and provides buildings of differing scales, types and intensities.
(b) It provides housing choice for people from a variety of lifestyles, with opportunities for small scale retail and commercial uses.
(c) Development is of an appropriate intensity that contributes to the creation of a vibrant and active space and efficient use of land and is consistent with the desired built form outcomes.
(d) Living areas and balconies are oriented to encourage overlooking of parks and other publicly accessible places.
(e) Building heights do not exceed those shown on Figure b.
(f) Built form adjacent to the potential future tennis centre expansion acknowledges the potential scale of the expansion to ensure a seamless integration and transition into the Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan area.
(g) A community garden provides an amenity and community focal point for the precinct.
(h) Boundaries between public and private spaces are clearly defined through the use of landscaping and level changes, while still maintaining opportunities for casual surveillance from private open space and living areas.
(6) Low-rise residential precinct (Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan/NPP-003) overall outcomes are:
(a) It provides a transition between the existing residential areas north of Ortive Street and the more intense development in the remaining Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan area.
(b) It predominantly comprises lower intensity residential uses such as dual occupancy and low-rise multiple dwellings.
(c) Development is of a scale and rhythm that is compatible with surrounding established residential areas, and building heights do not exceed those shown on Figure b.
(7) Open space precinct (Yeerongpilly TOD neighbourhood plan/NPP-004) overall outcomes are:
(a) It is a public open space that offers a variety of spaces and experiences that encourage social interaction.
(b) While predominantly open in landscape character, part of the precinct also provides a stormwater function by treating runoff from the urban areas and retaining flows in the event of high rainfall.
(c) A strong physical and visual link is retained between the Yeerongpilly Railway Station, the Queensland Tennis Centre and the Brisbane River.
(d) Public access to the Brisbane River is clearly legible and easily accessible.
(e) Buildings are of a low scale and are ancillary to the primary open space function of this precinct.
