19C.1.5 Variation Criteria

A building may penetrate the building envelope required by Rule 19C.1.2 - Overshadowing and/or be constructed closer to a site boundary than Permitted by Rule 19C.1.3 - Setbacks where:

  1. The written approval of those property owners and occupiers whose properties adjoin the proposed non-compliance has been obtained before the building works relating to the encroachment being undertaken;
  2. That written approval is clearly endorsed on all relevant building consent plans or other plans that show encroachment;
  3. The written approval and endorsed plans have been provided to Council for registration on the appropriate property file(s);
  4. ‘Adjoining’ for the purpose of this rule shall mean:
    1. For the purposes of Rule 19C.1.2 – Overshadowing, all those properties directly adjoining the boundary at which the overshadowing envelope is encroached upon and those separated from the subject site by vehicle or pedestrian access ways, private ways, access legs, rights of way, or access lots (excluding public roads), only where the subject building encroaches the overshadowing envelope as applied at the boundary of that property;
    2. For the purposes of Rule 19C.1.3 – Setbacks, all those properties directly adjoining the boundary at which the setback is encroached upon and those separated from the subject site by vehicle or pedestrian access ways, private ways, access legs, rights of way, or access lots (excluding public roads) only where the subject building is to be located within 1.5 metres of that property boundary.

The site entrance shall be formed and constructed to the following standard:

  1. A deceleration taper of at least 20 metres long on the north side of Welcome Bay Road to enable left-turning traffic to move clear of through-traffic travelling east;
