Multiple Dwelling with Retention of Two Pre-1946 Houses and ROL with Small Lot Houses

Lee Morrison - Tuesday, June 18, 2019

The Planning Place were able to obtain approval for a Material Change of use for Multiple Dwelling (5 townhouses), two Dwelling Houses on Small Lots, Building Works for partial demolition of a Pre-1946 Dwelling House, and a Reconfiguring a Lot (3 into 3 lot subdivision) at 12, 14 and 16 Marquis Street, Greenslopes. The development approval will occur over two stages to allow the developer with improved finance capacity to progress the development.
As the site is located in an overland flow path, the development is designed with a suspended built form platform with raised decks, ramp driveway and manoeuvring areas, and requiring an overland flow easement, so as to comply with the flood immunity requirements of the Flood Overlay Code. Attributable to complying with the Flood Overlay Code requirements, The Planning Place successfully justified attaining a site cover of 65.2% (including raised slab and decks). The Planning Place also effectively obtained approval for the small lot pre-1946 dwellings to be subdivided onto their own freehold lots adding value to the project, while also successfully achieving a lot size of 228m2 under the minimum lot size of 260m2 as prescribed under the Subdivision Code.
Notably, the client was able to exercise existing land use rights and development opportunity under the site’s current Low-Medium Density Residential Zone before the Council’s anticipated major planning scheme amendment to the City Plan 2014 is brought into place, which seeks to down-zone numerous properties under the Neighbourhood Local Plan to Character Residential Zone. What this means is, that following the zone changes, the subsequent outcome will be reduced development potential due to a reduction in the number of dwellings that could be established on the subject land size.
