Threatened Species

Test for determining whether proposed development or activity is likely to significantly affect threatened species or ecological communities, or their habitats)

 

NR

Sat

On 21st November 2017, certain zones of the WWLEP 2010 achieved Biodiversity Certification under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, including all Business, Industrial, Residential and Special Infrastructure Zones that were in place at the time of the making of the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. The subject site falls within an area subject to the Biodiversity Certification Order.

 

The effect of the Biodiversity Certification, as set out by Section 8.4 of the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 is that:

 

An assessment of the likely impact on biodiversity of development on biodiversity certified land is not required for the purposes of Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.

 

A consent authority, when determining a development application in relation to development on biodiversity certified land under Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, is not required to take into consideration the likely impact on biodiversity of the development carried out on that land.

 

Therefore, no further consideration of these matters is required.

NR

˜

Sat

In accordance with the Council’s advertising and notification provisions outlined in Section 1.10 of the WWDCP the application was notified to adjoining properties with submissions due on 13th October 2020. One submission has been received during the notification period.

 

The submission relates to the potential amenity and visual impacts on an adjoining property to the south of the proposed development. The submission contends that the proposal to reduce the required setback from 2m to 1m will result in unacceptable impacts. The front elevations of the properties to the south will face the development as a result of the unique subdivision layout in this area as depicted below:

 

An assessment of the variation requested and the potential impact on adjacent properties is discussed in detail under Section 9.3.7 of the DCP below.

 

The submission also relates to the application incorrectly identifying the legal description of the affected properties to the south. The application references the property to the south as the parent lot (Lot 43) which existed prior to its subdivision to create the two ‘affected’ properties serviced by the Right of Carriageway and identified in the diagram above.

 

This error has been noted. The current lot configuration has been considered and addressed in the assessment of the setback requirements under Section 9.3.7 of the DCP below.

The applicant has proposed a variation to control C2 of section 9.3.7 of the DCP related to side setback requirements and control C6 of the section 9.4.4 of the DCP which relates to the height of buildings.

 

9.3.7 - C2

 

C2 Any point of a building must have a setback from the side boundary nearest to that point of at least:

a) If the lot is in Zone R5 a setback of 2m

The applicant proposes a 1m setback from the southern boundary to the external wall of the dwelling.

 

9.4.4 - C6

 

C6 The height of an outbuilding or the alterations and additions to an existing outbuilding on a lot must not be more than 4.8m above ground level (existing). The building shall be single storey construction with a maximum roof pitch of 27 degrees or steeper to match the roof pitch of the house.

 

The proposed height of the detached garage is 5.447m.

• Within Urban Release Areas where it can be demonstrated that the reduced setback will be generally consistent with the character of the area or likely or desired future character of the area consistent with those generally allowed under the SEPP (Exempt and Complying Code) 2008 or relevant Code at the time of lodgement of a development application.

• Areas where it can be demonstrated that the setback is consistent with neighbouring properties. This situation is typical to older established areas of Central Wagga and large lot residential land.

• Corner lots where it can be demonstrated that the reduced setback on either or both frontages provides a more attractive streetscape without impacting unreasonably on the amenity of the neighbouring properties. This is relevant to designs that address both frontages without boundary fencing.

The applicant seeks variation to the 2m side setback requirement for the R5 zone. The proposed dwelling has been designed with a 1m setback to the southern boundary. The applicant has provided a justification for the variation, summarised as follows:

 

·   The reduced setback will increase area available along the northern boundary for vehicular access.

 

·   No adverse or unacceptable impacts are anticipated with regard overshadowing, acoustic or privacy to the allotments adjoining to the south due to the easements (including Right of Carriageway) that exist over the adjoining land (see earlier diagram).

 

Consideration has been given to the objectives of the controls under this section of the DCP which are detailed below:

 

O1 Ensure adequate separation between buildings for landscaping, privacy, natural light and ventilation.

 

Comment – The configuration of the adjacent properties will ensure that the proposed dwelling will not impact on their opportunity for landscaping, privacy, natural light and ventilation.

 

O2 Ensure new development continues the rhythm or pattern of development in the locality.

 

Comment – The site is unique given the historical subdivision pattern and the resulting lot configuration (see earlier diagram). Despite this, the proposed development is characteristic (scale and form) of dwellings currently being developed within this area. 

 

O3 Provide access for maintenance.

 

Comment – The proposed setback will allow for maintenance along the southern boundary of the property. 

 

O4 Building setbacks from the side and rear boundaries shall have careful regard to the impact of proposed structures on adjoining landowners.

 

Comment – The properties to the south are unique as they front onto a Right of Carriageway that runs along the side boundary of the development site.  The right of carriageway and the front setbacks proposed for the adjacent dwellings will ensure that there is an appropriate buffer and that the proposed dwelling will not result in unacceptable amenity impacts.

 

It is recommended that the variation be supported for the following reasons:

 

·   Lots located south of the property has an adequate physical and visual separation form the proposed dwelling due to the existing easement and driveway. Approved dwelling designs for 120 and 122 Lakehaven Drive were considered as part of the assessment and no privacy or visual impacts will be anticipated.

·   The reduced side setback will not compromise physical and visual separation of proposed dwelling with adjoining future dwellings for maintenance, landscaping, privacy, natural light and ventilation

·   The development remains consistent with the objectives of the controls.

·   Strict compliance with the control is considered unreasonable give these circumstances.

·   Having regard to the overall assessment of the application under section 4.15 of the Act.

The proposal does not comply with the Control C6 as the applicant proposes 5.447m high detached garage. The applicant has provided the below justification for the variation.

 

The proposed garage finished height is 5.447m is to enable secure parking of applicant’s motor home on this R5 large lot site. Locating this structure to the rear of the proposed dwelling (significantly setback form the street) and that the front boundary is narrow /restricted minimises the visual impact of garage structure from the road reserve. Within the neighbourhood /Locality there are several existing large outbuildings in floor areas as well as height exceeding 4.8m. Therefore, it is considered that the detached garage would be in keeping with the aesthetic of the surrounding development.
