8.       Detailed drainage plans for the internal site drainage system with levels reduced to Australian Height Datum (AHD), shall be prepared by a suitably qualified Hydraulic Engineer and be submitted to and approved by the certifying authority.  A copy of the plans shall be forwarded to Council, if Council is not the certifying authority.

 

The drainage plans must demonstrate compliance with the Building Code of Australia, Australian Standard AS3500.3:2003 (Plumbing and Drainage - Stormwater Drainage) and the relevant conditions of this development approval.

 

9.       The site stormwater drainage system is to be provided in accordance with the following requirements;

 

a)     The stormwater drainage system must be provided in accordance with the relevant requirements of Building Code of Australia and the conditions of this consent, to the satisfaction of the Certifying Authority and details are to be included in the construction certificate.

 

b)     The site stormwater from the redeveloped portion of the site must be discharged (by gravity) either:

 

i.     Directly to the existing pipe system within the site.

ii.    To a suitably designed infiltration system (subject to confirmation in a full geotechnical investigation that the ground conditions are suitable for the infiltration system),

 

NOTES:

·      Infiltration will not be appropriate if the site is subject to rock and/or a water table within 2 metres of the base of the proposed infiltration area, or the ground conditions comprise low permeability soils such as clay.

 

c)     Should stormwater be discharged to Council’s street drainage system, an on-site stormwater detention system must be provided to ensure that the maximum discharge from the redeveloped portion of the site does not exceed that which would occur during a 20% AEP (1 in 5 year  storm of one hour duration for existing site conditions. All other stormwater run-off from the site for all storms up to the 5% AEP (1 in 20 year) storm is to be retained on the site for gradual release to the street drainage system, to the satisfaction of the certifying authority.

 

An overland escape route or overflow system (to Council’s street drainage system) must be provided for storms having an annual exceedance probability (AEP) of 1% (1 in 100 year storm), or, alternatively the stormwater detention system is to be provided to accommodate the 1% AEP (1 in 100 year) storm.

 

d)     Should stormwater be discharged to an infiltration system the following requirements must be met;

 

i.         Infiltration systems/Absorption Trenches must be designed and constructed generally in accordance with Randwick City Council's Private Stormwater Code.

 

ii.         The infiltration area shall be sized for all storm events up to the 5% AEP (1 in 20 year) storm event with provision for a formal overland flow path to Council’s Street drainage system.

 

           Should no formal overland escape route be provided for storms greater than the 5% AEP (1 in 20yr) design storm, the infiltration system shall be sized for the 1% AEP (1 in 100yr) storm event.

 

iii.        Infiltration areas must be a minimum of 3.0 metres from any structure (Note: this setback requirement may not be necessary if a structural engineer or other suitably qualified person certifies that the infiltration area will not adversely affect the structure)

 

iv.        Infiltration areas must be a minimum of 2.1 metres from any site boundary unless the boundary is common to Council land (eg. a road, laneway or reserve).

 

e)     Determination of the required cumulative storage (in the on-site detention and/or infiltration system) must be calculated by the mass curve technique as detailed in Technical Note 1, Chapter 14 of the Australian Rainfall and Run-off Volume 1, 1987 Edition.

 

Where possible any detention tanks should have an open base to infiltrate stormwater into the ground. Infiltration should not be used if ground water and/or any rock stratum is within 2.0 metres of the base of the tank.

f)      If connecting to Council’s underground drainage system, a reflux valve shall be provided (within the site) over the pipeline discharging from the site to ensure that stormwater from Council drainage system does not surcharge back into the site stormwater system.

 

g)     Generally all internal pipelines must be capable of discharging a 1 in 20 year storm flow.  However the minimum pipe size for pipes that accept stormwater from a surface inlet pit must be 150mm diameter.  The site must be graded to direct any surplus run-off (i.e. above the 1 in 20 year storm) to the proposed drainage (detention/infiltration) system.

 

h)     A sediment/silt arrestor pit must be provided within the site near the street boundary prior to discharge of the stormwater to Council’s drainage system and prior to discharging the stormwater to any absorption/infiltration system.

 

Sediment/silt arrestor pits are to be constructed generally in accordance with the following requirements:

 

·         The base of the pit being located a minimum 300mm under the invert level of the outlet pipe.

·         The pit being constructed from cast in-situ concrete, precast concrete or double brick.

·         A minimum of 4 x 90 mm diameter weep holes (or equivalent) located in the walls of the pit at the floor level with a suitable geotextile material with a high filtration rating located over the weep holes.

·         A galvanised heavy-duty screen being provided over the outlet pipe/s (Mascot GMS multipurpose filter screen or equivalent).

·         The grate being a galvanised heavy-duty grate that has a provision for a child proof fastening system.

·         A child proof and corrosion resistant fastening system being provided for the access grate (e.g. spring loaded j-bolts or similar).

·         Provision of a sign adjacent to the pit stating, “This sediment/silt arrester pit shall be regularly inspected and cleaned”.

 

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

 

i)      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).

D80/17     Development Application Report - 299 Storey Street, Maroubra (DA/493/2017)

PL84/17

RESOLUTION: (Veitch/Andrews) that the application be deferred to allow for the submission of amended plans.

 

MOTION: (Neilson/D’Souza) that Council, as the consent authority, refuse development consent under Sections 80 and 80A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. DA/493/2017 for alterations and additions to the existing dwelling and conversion to a dual occupancy with associated works including infill of swimming and spa pools (variation to floor space ratio control), at No. 299 Storey Street, Maroubra for the following reasons:

 

1)     The proposal fails to satisfy the relevant objectives of R2 – Low Density zone under Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 in relation to the desired future character of the locality and the protection of residential amenity.

 

2)     The proposal exceeds the maximum floor space ratio of 0.5:1 specified in Clause 4.4 of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 and the Clause 4.6 variation to the development standard does not adequately demonstrate that strict application of the control is either unreasonable or unnecessary or that there are sufficient environmental planning reasons to justify contravening the development standard.

 

3)     Approval of such a significant variation to the floor space ratio development standard without satisfactory justification as required by Clause 4.6(3) of the of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 would not be in the public interest as it is inconsistent with the objectives of the floor space ratio development standard and the objectives for development within the R2 – Low Density zone in which the development is proposed to be carried out.

 

4)     The proposal fails to satisfy the relevant objectives of Building Design under Part C1 of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013 in that the excessive height and density, lack of adequate solar access and privacy, excessive site coverage, lack of adequate private open space, lack of adequate deep soil zones, poor internal layout, lack of adequate laundry and clothes drying facilities, poor pedestrian access and lack of adequate natural ventilation would result in unreasonable impacts for the future residents of the development in terms of overall residential amenity, privacy and solar access.

 

5)     The proposal does not comply with the landscape and permeable surface requirements under Part C1 of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013.

 

6)     The proposal does not achieve adequate side and rear setbacks for dual occupancy development under Part C1 of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013, resulting in to inadequate solar access, private open space, privacy and residential amenity.

 

7)     The proposal does not satisfy the visual privacy requirements under Part C1 of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013 because it would result in unreasonable internal privacy impacts as a consequence of overlooking from the living rooms and rear balconies of Unit 1 directly over the private open space area for Unit 2, as well as an unacceptable loss of privacy to the adjoining dwelling at 301 Storey Street by people using the non-compliant stairs along the eastern boundary.

 

8)     Private open space which achieves suitable dimensions for Unit 1 is not directly accessible from living rooms within the dwelling, is located only on the rooftop and in such a manner that direct overlooking of adjoining dwellings occurs and is not provided with any landscaping to ensure an adequate level of amenity or utility.

 

9)     The proposal would result in inadequate levels of internal amenity due to a lack of solar access to the living rooms and private open space areas of Unit 2 and poor natural ventilation due to the setbacks, orientation, poor internal floor layout and inadequate window design and placement.

 

10)   Pedestrian access to Unit 2 is inadequate as it cannot be easily seen from the street, can only be accessed via a non-compliant stairway and indirect path of travel within the lower level of the dwelling and is not provided with an acceptable level of passive surveillance from the public domain.

 

11)   The development will not provide adequate facilities for each dwelling with Unit 1 not being provided with a laundry and neither Unit 1 or 2 being provided with any defined location for the drying of clothes.

 

12)   The approval of a development with poor levels of internal amenity, inadequate facilities and private open space areas, poor natural ventilation and inadequate solar access despite such a significant density which is well above the stipulated floor space ratio is not in the public interest and will set an undesirable precedent for other similarly inadequate proposals, resulting in a significant adverse effect on the wider health and wellbeing of the community.

RESOLUTION: (Matson/Neilson) that Council, as the consent authority, refuse its consent under Section 96 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as amended to modify Development Consent No. 316/2005 for permission to site the addition 2.4m forward and increase size of first floor, change window size and position and alter roofline at 31 Holmes Street, Maroubra for the following reasons:

 

1.   The proposed development is inconsistent with the objectives of the R2 zone under the RLEP 2012 in that it will not protect the amenity values of the area. The positioning of the addition is incompatible with the existing and desired future character of the locality.   

 

2.   The proposal will result in significant adverse impacts in terms of the character of the area and is inconsistent with the objectives under Section 4.2 of the Low Density Residential Section of the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013 as the proposed addition will detract from the symmetry of the pair of semi-detached dwellings and set an undesirable precedent for future development of the significant number of semi-detached dwellings along Holmes Street.

 

MOTION: (Andrews/Said) that Council, as the consent authority, grant its consent under Section 96 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 as amended to modify Development Consent No. 316/2005 for permission to site the addition 2.4m forward and increase size of first floor, change window size and position and alter roofline at 31 Holmes Street, Maroubra subject to standard condition.
