Residential Self-Assessable Certificate - Todd Street, Taringa

Lee Morrison - Friday, December 02, 2016

The Planning Place recently provided the proposed residence at 24 Todd Street, Taringa a self-assessable development certificate. Pursuant to state and local planning legislation, the proposal did not trigger a development application. It was proposed to construct a new Dwelling House on the subject premises in accordance with the use definition under the Brisbane City Plan 2014:

‘A residential use of premises for one household that contains a single dwelling. The use includes outbuildings and works normally associated with a dwelling and may include a secondary dwelling’.

The self-assessable certificate was to confirm that the dwelling house would not exceed two (2) storeys in accordance with the self-assessable criteria of the Dwelling House Code. The proposed development will have an overlapping area that is not considered a storey including stairs, a laundry, and a basement area. The basement level will also be achieved from excavation further down from the natural ground level and, therefore, is not considered a storey.

The information provided by the self-assessable development gave legal evidence that the proposed dwelling house does not require assessment by Brisbane City Council having been professionally reviewed by the team at The Planning Place.
