EAST VICTORIA PARK - No.62 (LOT 301) Hampshire Street – Additions (residential)

Consultation has concluded

The Town has received a development application for additions (residential).

In accordance with Local Planning Policy 37 – “Community Consultation on Planning Proposals”, you are invited to comment on the following matters:

  • Secondary Street Setback – Council’s Local Planning Policy – Streetscape requires a minimum secondary street setback of 3.0 metres from Berwick Street. The application proposes a reduced setback of 0.9 metres to Berwick Street.

NOTE: The existing dwelling on site has a 0.9m setback. The proposed additions are a continuation of this existing ‘building line’.

  • Visual Privacy – In instances where the finished floor level (FFL) of proposed habitable spaces exceeds 500mm above natural ground level (NGL), the Residential Design Codes prescribe minimum setback distances for unscreened major openings/elevated decks from boundaries in order to achieve a reasonable level of privacy. The application proposes variations as follows:
  • Master bedroom window to south eastern boundary – 4.5 required; 4.3 metres proposed.
  • Alfresco deck to south eastern boundary – 7.5 metres required; 4.3 metres proposed.

NOTE: The FFL for both the master bedroom window and alfresco are calculated as being, at their ‘highest’ (relative to the NGL below) point, approximately 506mm above the natural ground level. Only a small portion (if any area) of the proposed alfresco exceeds 500mm above NGL. It is also noted that in some instances a screen/dividing fence between properties can serve as a suitable means of achieving adequate privacy.

  • Boundary Setbacks – The Residential Design Codes prescribes the minimum setback distance of buildings from boundaries other than the street. The application proposes variations to the setback of the following walls:
  • Ground Floor wall(s) from Shed to Laundry - 1.7 metres required; 1.1 metres proposed to southwestern boundary.
  • Ground Floor wall(s) from existing residence (Bed 1 and Study) - 5.3 metres required; 2.3 metres proposed to southwestern boundary.
  • Average Height of Boundary Wall – A boundary wall to the south western boundary with an average height of 3.35 metres above natural ground level in lieu of an average height of 3 metres as permitted under Council’s Local Planning Policy – Boundary Walls.

Please be advised that consultation letters sent to landowners and occupants refer only to the variations that are considered to affect those particular properties (eg, a property that directly abuts a proposed Boundary Wall).
