The proposed boundary adjustment will increase the area of Lot 1 by 3818m2 to 1.962 hectares and enable the existing associated boundary fence and structures to be contained wholly within Lot 1. As a result of the proposal the area of Lot 2 will decrease slightly with a total area of 50.43 hectares and thus remain compliant with the 40 hectare minimum lot size requirement. It is considered the proposed boundary adjustment will enable a more orderly use and management of the land, for both allotments and will not result in adverse impacts.

ClauseClause Clausec4.4(2) Floor space ratio
JustificationJustification JustificationThe revised proposal is considered satisfactory in regard to Clause 4.6(3) as outlined below. (3) Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless the consent authority has considered a written request from the applicant that seeks to justify the contravention of the development standard by demonstrating:(a) that compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case, Council considers the situation to be somewhat unusual and one where an FSR variation is not unwarranted considering the immediate context and neighbouring buildings. The site is part of a distinct cluster of adjoining lots with a unique character. The site areas are small and the existing buildings all exceed the maximum FSR of 0.5:1, ranging from approximately 0.9:1 to 1.3:1. In the circumstances, the proposed FSR of 1:1 is considered to represent an appropriate correlation with the existing built form and the applicable planning controls. Compliance with the standard is considered unnecessary and unreasonable in the circumstances. (b) that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard. In assessing whether there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify the variation, consistency with the objectives of the control and the zone are relevant. The revised proposal is considered to be acceptable in this regard as addressed at 4(a)(ii) below. At a higher level, the Objects of the Act are of relevance, in particular the aim of the promotion and co-ordination of the orderly and economic use and development of land. The proposal is considered to be an orderly development of the land. The reduction in bulk and scale provided in the revised plans results in a built form that is not inconsistent with the adjoining developments. The floor space ratio has been reduced to represent closer to an average of the FSR on the adjoining lots A through D. Adverse impacts on Lot D have been reduce through the removal of windows, increasing of the western setback and reduction in the projection of the adjoining wall. (4)Development consent must not be granted for development that contravenes a development standard unless:(a) the consent authority is satisfied that:(i) the applicant’s written request has adequately addressed the matters required to be demonstrated by subclause (3), A suitable variation statement in accordance with this clause has now been submitted.(ii) the proposed development will be in the public interest because it is consistent with the objectives of the particular standard and the objectives for development within the zone in which the development is proposed to be carried out, An assessment against the objectives of the development standard (clause 4.4) are as follows:(a) to provide an appropriate correlation between the size of a site and the extent of any development on that site, The revised design is considered to represent a reasonable correlation between the applicable planning controls, the site area and the adjoining development. (b) to establish the maximum development density and intensity of land use, taking into account the availability of infrastructure to service that site and the vehicle and pedestrian traffic the development will generate, The proposal is not expected to place an unreasonable demand on infrastructure or services. Waste servicing of the development can occur from Somerville Street. It is noted that parking has been raised as a concern in one of the submissions. The proposal provides a double garage for the residence as well as a commercial garage for the additional commercial space in compliance with Council controls. It is also noted that the creation of the driveways will result in a loss of up to three on street parking spaces on Somerville Street. The occupation of the commercial space as well as the residence would likely result in an increase in traffic generation in the locality. However, the removal of spaces on Somerville Street may alleviate an issue identified in a submission of Somerville Street becoming effectively single lane when cars are parked on both sides. In light of the above, and the small scale of the commercial component, the proposal is not expected to result in any significant traffic issues for the locality. (c) to ensure buildings are compatible with the bulk and scale of the locality. The revisions to the design overall reduce the bulk substantially and are considered to result in a development that is compatible with adjoining developments and the locality. The building is now considered to primarily present as two storey in scale. There are further not expected to be any unreasonable impacts on adjoining development arising from the proposal. As assessment against the objectives for development in the R2 zone is provided below. ?To provide for the housing needs of the community within a low density residential environment. The proposal provides for housing needs of the community and is of a scale compatible with the surrounding development. ?To enable other land uses that provide facilities or services to meet the day to day needs of residents. The proposal incorporates a commercial component consistent with this objective.(b) the concurrence of the Director-General has been obtained.Concurrence was previously provided by the Director-General

The proposed development has an FSR of 0.97:1 which results from additional floor area, with part of the basement/podium extending more than 1.2m from natural ground level, which must be included within the FSR calculation. In effect the contravention results from the need to minimise excavation within the Tree Protection Zone (TPZ) of a Heritage listed Fig Tree within the site and additional car parking provision for the development, to that which is required by Council’s controls.

The applicant has provided adequate justification for the variation sought and demonstrates that strict compliance with the development standard is unreasonable and unnecessary. It is considered that proposal will not detract from other approved development in the locality that exceed 9m and is considered to meet the objectives of the IN2 zone.The application was referred to IHAP on 6 April 2016. All Panel members concurred with the Council Officer's recommendation. Council received advice from a delegate of the Director General on 21 May 2014 returning delegation of powers to Council (assumed concurrence) negating required concurrence from the Director General as relates to cl. 4.6 of WLEP 2009.

This application was lodged on the 3 June 2014 and subsequently the exception can be assessed by Council accordingly.The extent of the non-compliance is restricted to the portion of land that has been excavated to accommodate the previous land use as a service station. It is expected that the proposal will present to the public domain, particularly Grey Street, as a compliant development.

ClauseClause Clausec4.3(2) Height of buildings
JustificationJustification JustificationThe proposed height occurs in the northern part of the floorplate, only on Level 7. The proposed building separation of the southern section of Levels 2-4 is 14m, where 20m is required.The application was lodged on 12 August 2014, and therefore Council’s assumed concurrence applies. The requested exception to clauses 4.3(2) and 8.6(3) are considered reasonable given the circumstances of the case. The applicant has provided adequate justification for the variations and demonstrates that strict compliance with the development standards.The design intent accommodates a number of limiting factors in addition to the sun plane control (e.g. the desire to provide landscape connection through the site from Pioneer Rest Park to Stewart Street, the need for comfortable separation between the proposed building and existing Howard Court and desire to limit overshadowing into the central courtyard).Provision of an alternative complying design would have likely resulted in a deeper floorplate which may not have incorporated the central courtyard and which may have cast a longer shadow over the building and Howard Court.Similarly, building separation is unnecessary as none of the relevant rooms has openings on the eastern elevation. Privacy, noise transmission and general amenity will not be adversely affected by the reduced distance. It is noted that the objectives of both the building height and separation clauses are satisfied. The application was determined by the JRPP on 8 May 2015. All panel members concurred with the Council Officer's recommendation.

JustificationJustification JustificationIt is considered that the proposed development has been designed appropriately with regard to the site constraints and is unlikely to result in significant adverse impacts on the character or amenity of the surrounding area. Only the southern portion of the land does not achieve the minimum site width, and a better built outcome would not be achieved if this portion was excluded from the development.The application was referred to IHAP on 21 October 2015. The IHAP panel members recommended some design issue changes to the development, namely, restricting the development to a height of 16 metres AHD, relocation of the bin storage area to the basement carpark level and some privacy to the adjacent ground floor balcony to unit 3, 6-8 Pleasant Avenue and lounge room windows of units 3, 5 and 7. The IHAP panel members indicated that the application could be approved under Council Officer delegation without the necessity of re-reporting back to IHAP, following the appropriate design changes to the proposed development. The revised proposal was subsequently endorsed by Council’s Manager Development Assessment & Certification (Acting).
