Sketch details of a standard sediment/silt arrester pit may be obtained from Council’s Drainage Engineer.

 

j)     The floor level of all habitable, retail, commercial and storage areas located adjacent to any detention and/or infiltration systems with above ground storage must be a minimum of 300mm above the maximum water level for the design storm or alternately a permanent 300mm high water proof barrier is to be provided.

 

(In this regard, it must be noted that this condition must not result in any increase in the heights or levels of the building.  Any variations to the heights or levels of the building will require a new or amended development consent from the Council prior to a construction certificate being issued for the development).

 

k)     Infiltration systems/Absorption Trenches must be designed and constructed generally in accordance with "Section 8.5 ABSORPTION TRENCHES" of Randwick City Council's Private Stormwater Code.

 

l)      The maximum depth of ponding in any above ground detention areas and/or infiltration systems with above ground storage shall be as follows (as applicable):

 

i.     150mm in uncovered open car parking areas (with an isolated maximum depth of 200mm permissible at the low point pit within the detention area)

A1      The requirements and provisions of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979 and Environmental Planning & Assessment Regulation 2000, must be fully complied with at all times.

 

Failure to comply with these requirements is an offence, which renders the responsible person liable to a maximum penalty of $1.1 million.  Alternatively, Council may issue a penalty infringement notice (for up to $1,500) for each offence.  Council may also issue notices and orders to demolish unauthorised or non-complying building work, or to comply with the requirements of Council’s development consent.

 

A2      Demolition, building or excavation work must not be commenced until;

 

§  A Construction Certificate has been obtained from Council or an Accredited Certifier

§  Council or an Accredited Certifier has been appointed as the Principal Certifying Authority for the development

§  Council and the Principal Certifying Authority have been given at least 2 days notice (in writing) prior to commencing any works.

 

A3      This determination does not include an assessment of the proposed works under the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and other relevant Standards.  All new building work (including alterations and additions) must comply with the BCA and relevant Standards and you are advised to liaise with your architect, engineer and building consultant prior to lodgement of your construction certificate.

 

A4      Council’s Building Approvals & Certification team can issue Construction Certificates and be your Principal Certifying Authority for the development, to undertake inspections and ensure compliance with the development consent, relevant building regulations and standards of construction.  For further details contact Council’s Building Approvals & Certification team on 9399 0944.

 

A5      A Local Approval application must be submitted to and be approved by Council's Building Approvals & Certification team prior to commencing any of the following activities on a footpath, road, nature strip or in any public place:

 

§  Install or erect any site fencing, hoardings or site structures

§  Operate a crane or hoist goods or materials over a footpath or road

§  Placement of a waste skip or any other container or article.

 

For further information please contact Council’s Building Approvals & Certification team on 9399 0944.

 

A6      Specific details of the location of the building/s should be provided in the Construction Certificate to demonstrate that the proposed building work will not encroach onto the adjoining properties, Council’s road reserve or any public place, to the satisfaction of the Certifying Authority.

 

A7      This consent does not authorise any trespass or encroachment upon any adjoining or supported land or building whether private or public.  Where any underpinning, shoring, soil anchoring (temporary or permanent) or the like is proposed to be carried out upon any adjoining or supported land, the land owner or principal contractor must obtain:

 

§  the consent of the owners of such adjoining or supported land to trespass or encroach, or

§  an access order under the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 2000, or

§  an easement under section 88K of the Conveyancing Act 1919, or

§  an easement under section 40 of the Land & Environment Court Act 1979, as appropriate.

 

Section 177 of the Conveyancing Act 1919 creates a statutory duty of care in relation to support of land.  Accordingly, a person has a duty of care not to do anything on or in relation to land being developed (the supporting land) that removes the support provided by the supporting land to any other adjoining land (the supported land).

 

A8      The finished ground levels external to the building must be consistent with the development consent and are not to be raised, other than for the provision of approved paving or the like on the ground.

 

A9      Prior to commencing any works, the owner/builder should contact Dial Before You Dig on 1100 or www.dialbeforeyoudig.com.au and relevant Service Authorities, for information on potential underground pipes and cables within the vicinity of the development site.

 

A10     The applicant is to advise Council in writing and/or photographs of any signs of existing damage to the Council roadway, footway, or verge prior to the commencement of any building/demolition works.

 

A11     Further information and details on Council's requirements for trees on development sites can be obtained from the recently adopted Tree Technical Manual, which can be downloaded from Council’s website at the following link, http://www.randwick.nsw.gov.au - Looking after our environment – Trees – Tree Management Technical Manual; which aims to achieve consistency of approach and compliance with appropriate standards and best practice guidelines.

CP57/12   Director City Planning Report - 80 Alison Road, Randwick (DA/611/2011)

210/12

RESOLUTION: (Andrews/Tracey) that Council as the responsible authority confirm its original decision under Section 82A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (as amended) to refuse development consent to Development Application No. 611/2011 for alterations and additions to an approved residential flat building including provision of a new level to rear with 1 bedroom unit, new sunroom at third floor level off unit 5, internal reconfiguration and associated works at 80 Alison Road, Randwick, for the following reasons:

 

1.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(i) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposed State Environmental Planning Policy 1 – Development Standards Objection to Randwick Local Environmental Plan (Consolidation) 1998 Clause 20F Floor Space Ratio is not considered to be well founded.

 

2.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(i) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposed State Environmental Planning Policy 1 – Development Standards Objection to Randwick Local Environmental Plan (Consolidation) 1998 Clause 20G Building Height is not considered to be well founded.

 

3.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(i) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Design Quality Principles contained within State Environmental Planning Policy 65 - Design Quality of Residential Flat Buildings.

 

4.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(i) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy Clause 12 Zone No. 2C (Residential C Zone) of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan (Consolidation) 1998 in that the proposal is not considered to satisfy the objectives of the 2C Zone due to impacts on the streetscape and environmental amenity.

 

5.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(i) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy Clause 20F Gross Floor Area of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan (Consolidation) 1998 in that the proposal creates additional building height and bulk that will not be compatible with the existing and desired future character of the site’s context and will result in overshadowing, overlooking, view loss and visual bulk issues in relation to adjoining development.

 

6.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 3.2 Height as the applicant has not adequately demonstrated that additional building height is compatible with the existing and desired future character of the site’s context and will not result in overshadowing and visual bulk issues in relation to adjoining development or the streetscape.

 

7.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 3.3 Setbacks as inadequate setback is provided from the northern side boundary and the proposed third level addition to the rear, which may result in visual bulk issues and a sense of enclosure in relation to adjoining development.

 

8.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 3.4 Density as the applicant has not adequately demonstrated that additional building bulk is compatible with the existing and desired future character of the area and the additional building bulk will exacerbate impacts (overshadowing) on adjoining development.

 

9.      Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 4.3 View Sharing, as potential view loss has not been adequately qualified by the applicant and any potential impacts would arise from a development that is not considered to satisfy DCP objectives in relation to building height.

 

10.     Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 4.4 Solar Access as the increase in building bulk is not considered to allow for reasonable levels of solar access to adjoining development to the south.

 

11.     Failure to satisfy Section 79C(1)(a)(iii) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the proposal fails to satisfy the Randwick Development Control Plan Multi-Unit Housing part 5.2 Driveways and Manoeuvring areas as amendments to the driveway width and grades are required to ensure that safe and efficient access is provided to the basement parking areas.

 

12.     The proposal does not satisfy Section 79C(1)(b) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in that the impacts of the proposed development on the streetscape and surrounding residents are considered to be unreasonable.

 

13.     The proposal does not satisfy Section 79C(1)(e) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 in the proposed development is unacceptable and should be refused in so far as it will set an undesirable precedent for similar inappropriate development in the area and in that regard is not in the public interest.
