Commercial Approval - Albert Street, Brisbane City

Lee Morrison - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

The Planning Place has successfully obtained approval for a Material Change of Use (Food and Drink Outlet and associated Hotel) at 96 Albert Street, Brisbane City. The premises is occupied by a six storey office building which will be retained in its existing built form and level one will be retrofitted into a Korean barbecue restaurant that includes a small bar.

Under the Brisbane City Plan 2014, a Food and Drink Outlet is defined as follows:

“Premises used for preparation and sale of food and drink to the public for consumption on or off the site. The use may include the ancillary sale of liquor for consumption on site. Examples include bistro, cafe, coffee shop, drive-through facility, kiosk, milk bar, restaurant, snack bar, takeaway, tearoom.”

Under the Brisbane City Plan 2014, a Hotel is defined as follows:

“Premises used primarily to sell liquor for consumption. The use may include short-term accommodation, dining and entertainment activities and facilities. Examples include bar, pub and tavern.”

As per the Centre or Mixed Use Code, where the proposed use is a Hotel, the use may not generate noise which is clearly audible and detectable, or impacts on the amenity of a resident, in a dwelling or other sensitive use. As the use on the second level of an existing office building, an acoustic report was undergone to satisfy this requirement.
