The Planning Place has successfully obtained development approval for Multiple Dwellings (4 Townhouses) at 40 Booligal Street, Carina. The approved development involves four two-storey townhouses with public and private spaces, and car parking. The townhouses will contribute to meeting Brisbane’s CityShape guidelines by boosting housing choice and affordability in a well-serviced and accessible area. The townhouses will also exhibit a high level of architectural merit to add to the prevailing residential amenity.
The principal concern for the proposed development was regarding setback non-compliances. Specifically, boundary relaxations were sought for the front and rear boundaries and side boundary on units B and D. It was argued that the reduced setbacks were primarily a result of the angles of the lot and were considered minor as most the townhouse’s walls were compliant.
For two-storey Multiple Dwellings less than 9.5m high located within the Low-Medium Density Residential, the application was determined to be Code Assessable. It was also determined via communications with Council that the proposed development application could be fast tracked through Brisbane City Council’s RiskSMART service.
