VICTORIA PARK – 53-55 Canning Highway (Lots 31, 32 & 33) – 23 Multiple Dwellings

Consultation has concluded

The Town has received a development application for 23 Multiple Dwellings.

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

The application is being assessed against the provisions of Town Planning Scheme No. 1, the Town’s Local Planning Policies and State Planning Policy 7.3 Residential Design Codes Volume 2 ‘Apartments’ (R Codes Volume 2 – Apartments) and is required to be advertised for public comments in accordance with the Town’s Local Planning Policy 37 – “Community Consultation on Planning Proposals”.

It should be noted that under the R-Codes Volume 2 – Apartments, assessment of the development is performance based having regard to whether the development satisfies the relevant Element Objective. Acceptable Outcomes are a pathway by which developers may attempt to satisfy the Element Objective. They are not “deemed-to-comply” requirements that determine whether or not an Element Objective has been achieved. Alternate (or additional) design solutions may be provided by an applicant demonstrating how an Element Objective is satisfied.

Your comments are sought in relation to aspects of the proposed development as detailed in the following table:

Element Objective

Side setback:

Unenclosed private outdoor space (balconies), at 5 storeys and above, setback 4.4m
Overshadowing
  • O3.2.1 – Building layouts respond to the streetscape, topography and site attributes while optimising solar and daylight access within the development.
  • O3.2.2 – Building form and orientation minimises overshadowing of the habitable rooms, open space and solar collectors of neighbouring properties during mid-winter.
