All buildings, with the exception of the permitted intrusions in Rule 4H.2.1 – Permitted Setback Intrusions, shall provide a minimum set back of 1.5 metres from any side or rear boundary.

19D.1.5 Variation Criteria

A building may penetrate the building envelope required by Rule 19D.1.3 - Overshadowing and/or be constructed closer to a site boundary than permitted by Rule 19D.1.4 - 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 plans or other plans that show the 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 19D.1.3 – 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 19D.1.4 – 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.

19D.1.6 Traffic Management, Safety and Convenience

  1. Before the school roll exceeds 450 pupils, the intersection of the school access with Welcome Bay Road shall be constructed as follows:
    1. A deceleration taper and left turn lane 2.5 metres wide comprising a 15-metre storage area and 30-metre taper on the eastern side of the school entrance to allow left-turning traffic to move clear of through-traffic travelling west. The removal of the roadside bank on the eastern side of the school driveway to enable sight distances to meet acceptable guidelines will be required as part of these works;
    2. A 2.5 metre flush median to be incorporated into road markings to provide a safe refuge for vehicles right turning from vehicles travelling east;
    3. The actual driveway intersection with Welcome Bay Road to be constructed of alternative materials to clearly indicate the demarcation between public and private roads;
  2. Every activity shall provide on-site parking, manoeuvring, loading and access in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 4 – General Rules, specified within Rule 4B.2 – Permitted Activity Rules;
  3. Rule 4B.4 b) - Restricted Discretionary Activity Rules, for more than 25 on-site parking spaces shall not apply until the combination of activities assessed together in accordance with the provisions of Appendix 4A: General Minimum On-Site Parking and Loading Requirements specified in Rule 4B.2.3 – On-site Parking Requirements - General, requires more than 110 on-site parking spaces.

Note: Where the combination of activities assessed together in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 4 – General Rules specified within Rule 4B.2.3 – On-site Parking - General requires more than 110 on-site parking spaces, subsequent activities shall be assessed as a Restricted Discretionary Activity in accordance with Rule 4B.3 b) to determine the actual demand for on-site parking, maneuvering, loading and access.
