The Planning Place has recently obtained development approval for Building Works for Partial Demolition and Dwelling House Extensions on a Small Lot in the Traditional Building Character Overlay at 40 Payne Street, Indooroopilly. Partial demolition involving removal of the hip section of roof, existing rear deck and stairs was proposed to facilitate the proposed additional three bedrooms, rumpus room and new staircase. The development, through clever built form, was responsive to the site’s sloping topography. The development achieves a combined contemporary design with the pre-1946 timber and tin character, and a reduced secondary frontage setback.  

The proposal was generally compliant with the acceptable solutions on the secondary frontage (Eldon Street), and the proposed development was able to meet the intent of the Performance Outcomes of the Traditional Building Character Overlay (Design& Demolition) Codes and Dwelling House (Small Lot) Code.

The development application can be viewed on Council’s website: VIEW
