AIM OF THE WINDSOR ROAD. i) to understand the evolving nature of the Shire's urban centers contained within the area and identify their impact on economic development and the development of adjacent residential areas. ii) to produce a range of design guidelines for different housing forms that protect and enhance the garden-like character of the Shire and reflect the evolving shape of the Shire's town centres. iii) to achieve well-designed residential development that offers a high standard of amenities for its residents and adjacent property owners. iv) to facilitate the development of outstanding building design appropriate to an area. v) require parking and service provision to be contained within the development area at an amount and rate appropriate to the economic and sustainable growth of the town centre, and (vi) provide for safe and secure access. The development control will facilitate a unique development that seeks to balance quality, higher density residential living with the green, leafy suburban character of the Shire. Screening and partial enclosure of balconies is limited to provide privacy for neighbors and comfort for residents without resulting in unattractive buildings or an appearance of excessive bulk or limiting opportunities for passive surveillance of the street.. to provide setbacks that complement the surroundings and contributing to the streetscape and character of the street while allowing flexibility in the placement of buildings.. to ensure that the space in front of the building is sufficient to allow for landscaping that will complement the building form and enhance the landscape character of the street.. side and rear setbacks. shall be proportional to the slope of the site, taking into account the height and relationship between the buildings on adjacent properties. Setbacks in proposed buildings must minimize any negative impacts such as overshadowing and privacy on adjacent and neighboring properties.

The Windsor Road Precinct should be a prominent feature marking the edge of the town centre. Any future site development application should be consistent with road widening plans along Windsor Road. Architectural plans and pedestrian access arrangements for the site should take into account the possible relocation of the bus stop.

Mailboxes should be built into the wall where possible and made of materials that match the appearance of the building. Place the satellite dish and telecommunications antennas, air conditioners, ventilation ducts and all ancillary structures away from the street frontage included in the roof design and in a place where such facilities will not become a feature of the skyline at the top of the construction, adequately set back from the perimeter wall or roof edge of buildings. Container structures should be well designed and treated as part of the overall development look.

DEFINITIONS

Acoustic report assessing the design of dwellings and external noise reduction devices together must be demonstrated to achieve a maximum ambient noise level of 40 dB(A) in any habitable room. Acoustic walls facing busy arterial roads should be designed to avoid blank painted surfaces and monotonous appearance. The details of all proposed lighting, including a light spill diagram for external lighting and the hours of operation of any lighting, must be provided with the development application.

All lighting should be raised to ensure that the lights do not interfere with the movement of traffic both on the site and on nearby roads. It is measured as the horizontal distance between the proposed wall, window or outermost part of the building and the boundary. Floor Space Ratio - The floor space ratio is the total floor area of ​​all buildings divided by the total area of ​​the development area.

The only areas excluded from floor area calculations are areas used for elevator towers, cooling towers, utility rooms and built parking garages required to meet council parking standards, and loading docks. Existing Trees - any tree with a height of more than 5.0 meters and/or a width of 3.0 meters and/or a trunk diameter of 150 millimetres, measured at 1.0 meters from the trunk of the tree. Building Height (or Building Height) - means the vertical distance from ground level (extant) at any point to the highest point of the building, including factory and elevator crossings, but excluding communications equipment, antennas, satellite dishes, masts, flagpoles, chimneys, flues, and of such.
