GENERAL: Applicant: Gwelo Investments Pty Ltd Zone: CB (Central Business) Area: 1,938 m2 Attached Plans: Attachment A Proposal: The proposal is for a 22 storey mixed-use building, plus 2 levels of basement parking, at Lots 2383 & 2384, Woods Street, Darwin City.

OFFICES, RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS IN A 22 STOREY BUILDING PLUS 2 LEVELS OF BASEMENT PARKING
The residential component of the proposed development is for affordable housing, aimed at first time buyers. The multiple dwellings will have one or two bedrooms, and the proposal is that only one car parking space will be provided per unit. As a result, there is a 48% (233 space) car parking shortfall in the proposal. The applicant commissioned consultants GHD to prepare a ‘Darwin Central Business District Parking Study’, to provide information to support the reduction in car parking. A copy of this study is attached to this report as Attachment C. Site and Surrounds The site is located on the western side of Woods Street, mid-way between it’s intersections with Knuckey Street and Bennett Street. The site is currently occupied by 2 single dwelling houses, one on Lot 2383 and one on Lot 2384. The site is zoned within the CB (Central Business) Zone. Northern Territory Planning Scheme: The proposal is for a mixed residential and commercial use within Zone CB (Central Business). The mixed use development is a discretionary land use, subject to meeting the following development criteria:
Clause Requirement Complies / Not Complies
Clause 6.3 Building Heights in Central Darwin – Amended by IDCO (No. 18)
The construction of a building or structure of a height exceeding 90 metres above ground level is prohibited in this location.
Complies – Above ground building height is 73.74 metres.
Clause 6.5.1 Parking Requirements
• 2 Car Parking Spaces per multiple dwelling (227 units = 454 bays)
• 3 bays per 100m2 net floor area for shops, restaurant and offices (943.6m2/100)x3=28.3(29) bays
• Total: 483 bays
Does not Comply - 483 bays required* and only 250 provided. 233 (48%) shortfall.
Clause 6.5.3 Parking Layout

Clause 6.6 Loading Bays
Shops, restaurants and offices must provide an area wholly within the site for the loading of a vehicle of minimum dimensions 7.5 metres x 3.5 metres, with a 4 metre clearance

Clause 7.5 Private Open Space
12m2 with minimum dimensions of 2.8m x 4m for each dwelling without direct ground level access
Does not comply – all balconies for units on 3rd & 4th floors, 1-bed units on 5th floor, and all units on the 6th to 17th floor do not comply. Only 2 of the 13 penthouse units comply.

* The Woodhead development application planning report includes a table of car parking
requirements on Page 8. There is a calculation error within the 2nd column of this table. The sum of 454 + 11.49 + 16.8 = 482.3 (rounded to 483), rather than 488 as shown on the table.
Other Comments: • The submitted floor plans (DD2.06 to DD2.12) appear to show a development of
only 73 x 1 bedroom & 115 x 2 bedroom multiple dwellings, rather than the 88 x 1 Bedroom & 139 x 2 Bedroom Multiple Dwellings, described in the development application. This is based upon the following information taken from the plans.
Floors 1- Bedroom 2 - Bedroom Levels 3 to 4 (2 levels)
4 dwellings
-
Level 5 5 dwellings 6 dwellings Levels 6 to17 (12 levels)
5 dwellings 8 dwellings
Penthouse - 13 dwellings Totals 73 dwellings 115 dwellings
This matter has been raised within Council’s letter to Development Assessment Services.

• It is possible that the internal layout of the building could facilitate a change of
use from multiple dwellings to hotel / serviced apartment accommodation, subject to necessary development consents and building approvals. The building includes a foyer area and retail area that could be used as a reception, a resort style pool on the 5th floor and an internet café and launderette on the 5th floor. Council’s letter to Development Assessment Services has advised the owner that should a change of use to tourist style accommodation be proposed in the future, Council will require a bus set-down facility to be incorporated within the site boundary for the safe ‘drop-off / pick-up’ of visitors. Council will not support the construction of a bus set-down bay within the Woods Street road reserve.
Disability Discrimination Legislation: Disability Discrimination Act issues are addressed under the Building Act requirements. Council places a statement of support for equal opportunity on all responses. Council Issues: Encroachment onto Council’s Land: The development application Roof Plan (Plan No: DD2.13) demonstrates that the roof will overhang Council’s Woods Street road reserve by approximately 2.5 metres and this is also shown on the Section A-A Plan (Plan No: DD4.01) and the building elevation plans. The East and West elevation plans for the building (Plan Nos: DD03.02 and DD03.01) also demonstrate blade walls from the building’s 6th floor to the roof, overhanging the Woods Street road reserve. Council will not approve the building roof or blade walls overhanging Council’s land. Crossover and Driveway: The proposed crossover to Woods Street does not satisfy Council. Council has requested that the Authority require amended plans including the following changes:
• No traffic island can be located within Council property.
• The crossover constructed to Councils standards in particular to be noted in the geometry of the splay.
On-Street Car Parking Bays: There are currently angled on-street car parking bays along the frontage of the site. Council has requested that the following condition regarding on-street car parking bays be placed upon any development permit issued, as follows: “Before the use commences the owner must pay a monetary contribution to the Darwin City Council in lieu of the total number of on-street car parking spaces lost as a result of the development. There are currently 13 on-street car parking bays adjacent to Lots 2382 and 2383 on Woods Street.”

The applicant’s plans show 12 angle bays along the frontage of the new building. Awnings: The applicant’s plans include a 6.0 metre wide awning over the Woods Street road reserve. Council’s standard awning condition is requested on any development permit issued. Footpath / Verge: There are footpaths with decorative paving, and landscaping proposed within Council’s verge, as shown on the applicant’s plans. Council’s standard landscaping condition is requested on any development permit issued. Waste Bin Storage: A garbage chute is proposed for the residential floors of the building, connecting to a waste / recycling bin storeroom on the ground floor. However, it appears that no provision has been made for service vehicles to access the waste bin storeroom, which is centrally located within the ground floor of the building, to empty / change over the bins. Council will not approve the storage and servicing of bulk waste bins on Council’s Wood’s Street road reserve. Stormwater Drainage: Stormwater plans requested. Easements: There are no Council easements shown on the applicant’s plans. FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: Not assessed. ACTION PLAN IMPLICATIONS: The issues addressed in this report are in accordance with the following goals/strategies of the Action Plan of the Darwin City Council 2004 - 2008: 2 ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT 2.4 Darwin Business Goal: To support and encourage local business. 5 ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT 5.2 Built Environment Goal: Influence government and private developers to develop and maintain projects in a way which reflects the unique Darwin lifestyle and enhances quality of life. 5.3 Town Planning Goal: To make a meaningful contribution to the planning and development of Darwin.

DEVELOPMENT EXCEEDING HEIGHT LIMITATION WITH BASEMENT CAR PARKING AND A REDUCED FRONT SETBACK
The basement level will house five car parks and a cyclone shelter. Other features of the proposal include a swimming pool, spa and a lift. Vehicle access will be from a new 6 metre wide crossover and driveway from East Point Road. The basement level garage will be accessed by a paved driveway for which gradient details are not known. History: There appears to be no recent planning history for site of relevance to this application. Site and Surrounds: The subject site is orientated south-west to north-east and has two road frontages being East Point Road and George Crescent, the site has existing crossovers to both roads. The subject site and adjoining sites are characterised by a large road reserve. Existing improvements on the site are a single residence (to be removed) and units which are to be demolished in the future. The adjoining land on either side of the subject allotment, generally to the north and south is zoned MD (Multiple Dwelling Residential) as is the land on the opposite side of George Crescent. The land generally to the west on the opposite side of East Point Road is zoned PS (Public Open Space). Wider afield exists Zone C (Commercial), Zone CP (Community Purposes), SD (Single Dwelling), HR (High Density Residential) and additional PS (Public Open Space). Northern Territory Planning Scheme: The proposed development is zone MD (Multiple Dwelling Residential), and requires consent. It should be noted that the application refers to the future removal of the units to the rear and it can be assumed that this area intends of being developed in the future. However Council’s assessment will treat the proposal as a multi dwelling development. This is consistent with the approach taken by the Department of Planning and Infrastructure.
Clause Requirement Compliance? Clause 6.5.1 Parking Requirements
2 Car Parking Spaces per dwelling.
5 car parks will be provided for the proposed new dwelling. In addition the car park standards as per Clause 6.5.3 are met. Car parking for the existing units is not shown. Compliance for the proposed dwelling is met. Compliance for the existing units is uncertain as no

information has been provided. It is noted that the proposed new dwelling will not occupy any area which appears to be presently utilised as car parking for the existing units.
Clause 7.1 Residential Density & Height Limitations
1 or 2 storeys. Maximum height of 8.5 metres. 1 dwelling per 300m2 of site area.
The proposed dwelling is 3 storeys high (including a basement storey). This does not comply. The existing units are single storey. Compliance is achieved. The proposed dwelling is no higher than 8.5m however the proposal includes several roof top air conditioning units which penetrate the 8.5m maximum height plane. This does not comply. Whilst the height of the existing units is not specified it is clear they are no higher than 8.5m. Complaint with Clause 7.1. The number of existing units is not known however it is assumed there are 2. Based on this assumption and including one proposed dwelling, density is approximately 1 dwelling per 465m². This complies.
Clause 7.3 Building Setbacks of Residential Buildings and Pergolas, Carports and the Like
7.5m for primary street frontage setback. 7.5m for secondary street frontage setback. 1.5m for side and rear buildings. Setback between buildings 3m for walls without habitable room windows, 6m for walls with habitable room windows and 4.5m if one building
The proposed dwelling is setback between 3.9m and 15.313m. This does not comply. The existing units setback is greater than 2.5m. The side setbacks for the proposed dwelling is 1.5m. This complies. The existing units are setback over 1.5m. Both the existing units and the proposed dwelling comply with this provision. The proposed dwelling has a breezeway which can be occupied and it appears the existing units have windows facing the proposed dwelling

contains habitable room windows and one does not.
(will need to be confirmed) the required separation distance is 6m and a setback of approximately 2.1 is provided. This does not comply.
Clause 7.5 Private Open Space
45m² minimum area of private open space per dwelling is required inclusive of area with minimum dimensions of 5m x 5m.
The proposed dwelling has private open space to the minimum requirements to the front of the dwelling. This is compliant. Compliance for the existing units is uncertain as no information has been provided. It appears that it will not comply.
Clause 7.6 Communal Open Space
Minimum of 15% of site. The proposal does not comply. The plan does not identify an area for communal open space. 209m² is required.
Clause 7.7 Landscaping for Multiple Dwellings
Not less than 30% of site is to be landscaped.
The proposal appears not comply. The plan does not identify areas of landscaping. 418m² is required.
Clause 7.8 Building Design for Multiple Dwellings
Purpose of clause is to promote site-responsive designs which are pleasant for the occupants and do not unreasonably affect the use and enjoyment of the adjacent land.
Several features of the proposed dwelling achieve the purpose of Clause 7.8. There are several features which conflict with this Clause. Namely point 2(b) which states expanses of walls should be minimised and 2(d) which states air conditioners should be concealed. The existing units will not be assessed as they are existing.
It is noted that 7.1, point 5 states ‘Single dwellings in zones …MD…. Are not to contain any space capable of being occupied in that part of the building that exceeds a height of 7m without consent’. Council has assessed the development as a multi dwelling due to the existing units at the rear therefore this does not apply. However it should be noted that levels as shown on the elevation drawings indicate that the ceiling height of the top floor appears not to exceed 7m above ground level. Disability Discrimination Legislation: Disability Discrimination Act issues are addressed under the Building Act requirements. Council places a statement of support for equal opportunity on all responses.

Northern Territory Planning Scheme: The proposal is for a mixed residential and commercial use within Zone CB (Central Business). The mixed use development is a discretionary land use, subject to meeting the following development criteria:
Clause Requirement Compliance? Clause 6.3 Building Heights in Central Darwin
No building exceeding 36m in height above ground level can be constructed. Note: This is at the direction of Interim Development Control Order No. 18.
The applicant has sought clarification as to where the height of the building should be measured. The CEO of the Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI) has advised that it would be recommended to the Minister that the height above natural ground level will betaken from a point midway along the boundary of the primary frontage of the proposed building. Assuming this the applicant has established the Buffalo Court frontage as the primary frontage. A midway point along this boundary has been established as 18.78 AHD. Therefore the maximum height of the building can be 54.78 AHD. This maximum height is adhered to at a point directly above the mid way point along Buffalo Court. Therefore the proposal appears to comply based on the CEO of the DPI’s advice.
Clause 6.5.1 Parking Requirements
Dwelling: 2 car parking spaces per dwelling. Restaurant: 3 car parking spaces for every 100m² of net floor area and any alfresco dining areas. Shop: 3 car parking spaces for every 100m² of net floor area. Hotel:16 for every 100m² of net floor area plus 0.4 for every suite or bedroom.
54 Dwellings = 108 bays required. 336m² of Restaurant = 10.98 (11) bays required. (The restaurant could also be calculated under the ‘other areas’ of Motel).
703m² of Shop = 21.09 (22) bays required. 345m² plus 220 Suites = 55.2 (53) + 88 = 141 bays required. (Hotel rooms could also be calculated under Motel).

Motel: 0.4 for every suite or bedroom plus 3 for every 100m² of net floor area of all other areas. Serviced Apartments: 1 car parking space for every dwelling plus 3 for every 100m² of net floor area not within a dwelling.
847m² of ‘Other Areas’ = 25.41 (26) bays required. 28 Dwellings = 28 bays required. Total of 336 bays are required. These are provided. Compliance is achieved.
Clause 6.6 Loading Bays
1 loading bay for every 2000m² of the total net floor area. A loading bay is to: a). be at least 7.5m by 3.5m; b). have a clearance of at
least 4m; and c). have access that is
adequate for its purpose.
A loading bay to the appropriate dimensions has been provided at ground level from Cashman Street. The Council has requested manoeuvring from this is demonstrated. Compliance appears to be achieved.
Clause 7.5 Private Open Space
12m² minimum area of private open space per dwelling is required inclusive of area with minimum dimensions of 2.8m x 4m. Access to this space should be directly from the dwelling.
Given the scale of the plans 12m² of private open space can not be accurately ascertained. This has been raised with the Development Assessment Services.
Clause 7.6 Communal Open Space
Minimum of 15% of site. Approximately 29% of the site is provided as communal open space. This complies with the Clause.
Clause 7.8 Building Design for Multiple Dwellings
Purpose of clause is to promote site-responsive designs which are pleasant for the occupants and do not unreasonably affect the use and enjoyment of the adjacent land.
Elevation plans have been provided to display the design features of building.
Clause 8.1.2 Offices, Restaurants and Shops in Zones CB and C

THE PLANNING AMENDMENT (DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS) BILL
ITEM NO: 8.7 SYNOPSIS: The following report details the changes to the public notice procedures of development applications carried out by the Department of Planning and Infrastructure (DPI). The changes have come about due to the Planning Amendment (Development Applications) Bill which came into effect on 1st July 2008. In addition the report suggests changes to Council’s processing of development applications in response to the changes in legislation. GENERAL: The Planning Amendment (Development Applications) Bill came into effect on 1st July 2008. This amendment saw section 47A inserted into the Planning Act in Part 5, Division 2 – Development Applications – Notification And Consultation. The new section 47A is included as Attachment A to this report. The amendment specifically relates to the public notice requirements of development applications received by DPI. In accordance with the new section 47A ‘no public notice is required to be given of a development application that is solely for consent to carry out the following development:
• the consolidation of land;
• the establishment of, or change in, the use of land for the accommodation of people requiring privacy, as specified by the Regulations;
• development, specified by the Regulations, that will not have a significant impact on the existing and future amenity of the area in which the development will be carried out.’

PAGE: 2 REPORT NO: 08TS0155 HS:cb SUBJECT: AMENDMENT TO THE NORTHERN TERRITORY PLANNING ACT THE PLANNING AMENDMENT (DEVELOPMENT APPLICATIONS) BILL
The following table summarises the new section 47A as it translates to particular types of applications (as concluded by DPI):
Application Type
Notification Required
Variations to the side and rear setback requirements for single dwellings and ancillary development on one lot
o Notification of the affected neighbouring land owner(s) with a 14 day comment period
o Council & Service Authority notification also required
Premises for the accommodation of people requiring protection / privacy (i.e. domestic violence shelters)
o Notification of the adjoining land owners, and land owner(s) of the nearest 3 properties opposite with a 14 day comment period
o Council & Service Authority notification also required
Consolidation of land
notification only, with a 14 day comment period
Variations to performance criteria specified in the NT Planning Scheme for developments that would otherwise be permitted without consent in an industrial zone (eg. Showroom Sales in Zone LI where the only reason for development application is a variation to loading bay provisions)
o No public notification required o Council & Service Authority
notification only, with a 14 day comment period
o If development adjoins a residential zone the application MUST be publicly notified as per process for all other applications (see below)
All other applications
o Publicly notified with pink sign on the site and advertisement in the local newspaper with a 14 day comment period
This raises several questions about the suitability of some of Council practices. Council Officers have considered how the new section of the Planning Act effects Council’s exhibition of applications, the Aldermens’ Memo and confidentiality of any report prepared on a development application. Council Exhibition of Applications In instances where public notification is not required, Council Officers suggest that an copy of the application is not made available at the Civic Centre Reception. The Planning Act does not specify that this is a requirement of Council.

Confidentiality Council Officers do not consider that any application exempt from public notice under the new section 47A needs to be treated as confidential when preparing a Council report or response to DPI. It should be noted that third party appeal rights are not affected by this amendment to the Planning Act. FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: Nil. ACTION PLAN IMPLICATIONS: The issues addressed in this report are in accordance with the following goals/strategies of the Action Plan of the Darwin City Council 2004 - 2008: 1 CORPORATE GOVERNANCE 1.1 Decision Making Goal: To ensure that Council decision making is based on full and accurate information and consistent procedures. 5 ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT 5.3 Town Planning Goal: To make a meaningful contribution to the planning and development of Darwin.
