18A.6.1.1 Policy – Bulk and Scale of Buildings in Industry Zone

By limiting industrial development within the Industry Zone to a building envelope sufficient to provide for that development, while:

  1. Ensuring the maintenance of the landscape character of the locality;
  2. Ensuring the amenity of surrounding zones is not compromised;
  3. Ensuring the effects of development is mitigated by the inclusion of large specimen plantings and appropriate building form, where the provided building envelope is exceeded.

18A.6.2 Objective – Site Layout and Building Design in the Industry Zone

Development within the Industry Zone is unrestricted in the layout and design of buildings, unless adjacent to or opposite a sensitive zone, or area of natural character where development has regard to the amenity of that zone or area.

18A.6.2.1 Policy - Site Layout and Building Design in the Industry Zone

By providing an unrestricted layout and design of buildings in the Industry Zone, unless development is adjacent to or opposite a sensitive zone or area of natural character where:

  1. By requiring development opposite a sensitive zone to provide building setbacks and frontage landscape planting to soften the appearance of that development;
  2. Ensuring activities have regard to the amenity of adjacent zones by providing a physical separation of activities and building form to minimise disturbance, visual intrusion and overshadowing of the sensitive zones;
  3. Ensuring development is appropriately set back from areas of natural character, or land within the Conservation Zone sufficient to preserve the amenity, character and intrinsic natural values of those areas.
