35 Dopson Street, Taringa

The Planning Place has recently obtained approval for a Three Storey House on a Small Lot at 35 Dopson Street, Taringa. Generally unsupported within the Low Density Residential Zone, The Planning Place justified the additional storey as a consequence of the site’s slope and cited minimal crossover so that for the most part the dwelling house presented as two storeys. Precedence within the streetscape achieved against the Brisbane City Plan 2014 was also used to support the proposal.

The approved development required Code assessment against a number of codes including the Dwelling House (Small Lot) Code, Low Density Residential Zone Code and the Toowong-Indooroopilly District Neighbourhood Plan Code. The Toowong-Indooroopilly District Neighbourhood Plan identified the strategic intent for the local area surrounding and including the subject site. The approved Three Storey House did not change the level of assessment in the Toowong-Indooroopilly District Neighbourhood Plan and the proposed development achieved the purpose and overall outcomes of the subsequent code.

17 Normanton Street, Stafford Heights

The Planning Place has successfully obtained RiskSMART approval for a 1 into 2 Lot Subdivision at 17 Normanton Street, Stafford Heights. The approved development involved the removal of the existing high set dwelling house and pool to provide for two front facing lots each with a frontage width of approximately 10 metres.

Confirmation from Brisbane City Council and Asset Services regarding the removal of street trees in the road reserve ensured that the development application remained suitable for RiskSMART.

Performance solutions were sought with regard to the lot width of parent Lot 1. The existing lot was slightly irregular, however, was common for lots in the Stafford Heights area. The approved design responded intelligently to the site’s shape that would enable dwelling houses to be comfortably positioned and would not result in negative amenity impacts of neighbouring lots.
