1.1       Building design is to achieve architectural consistency with blocks to be developed in a holistic and cohesive manner.

 

1.2       Building facades to streets are to incorporate the following design characteristics:

         Well proportioned and spaced windows appropriate to their orientation;

         Architectural features at ground level that reinforce dwelling address such as entrance porches;

         Well balanced projected and recessed sections of balconies;

         Use of appropriate environmental controls such as verandahs, sliding screens, window hoods and the like;

         Coordinated and compatible materials and finishes where neutral colours predominate with strong colours limited to accent elements up to a maximum of 10% of the façade area.

 

1.3       All dwellings are to be designed to achieve cross-ventilation

 

1.4       Building fronts and entries are to be readily apparent from the street and convey a sense of address.  Buildings fronting the public street must have their main entrance and windows from some habitable rooms facing the street. Building detailing and articulation must enable dwellings to be identified from the street.

 

1.5       Buildings are to be aligned predominantly parallel to the street boundary and predominantly to the street setback line.

 

1.6       To ensure that garages, parking structures and parking areas are located and designed so they do not to dominate the street frontage.

 

1.7       Carports and garages fronting public streets are to have a maximum opening width of 6 m or 1/3 of the width of the lot, whichever is less.

 

1.8       Garages are to be located within the building envelope of the associated dwelling and behind the front building line.

 

1.9       Carports are to be located behind the front building line of the associated dwelling.

 

1.10     Carports and garages fronting public streets are to be integrated with building design.

 

1.11     Building facades are to provide environmental amenity through sun shading devices, privacy screens and noise barriers combined with useable outdoor areas.

32.       Details of a maintenance schedule for the GPT’s, bioretention swales and creek. In this regard, as part of ongoing stormwater studies relating to stormwater inundation of areas downstream from the Master Plan site, Council may require the construction of an onsite stormwater detention area in that section of Bunnerong Road immediately west of the development site.
