To inform preparation of the Development Plan Amendment, Council staff have undertaken a detailed Character Assessment (Built Form and Land Use) of the areas of focus.
Click here to see view this information:
The Character Assessment includes:
- Built Character: For each building information was collected on built character (heritage listing, height, design appearance etc)
- Land Use: Residential (house, unit etc) or Non-Residential (eg shop, office, hotel etc)
The Character Assessment (what we saw on the ground) has been compared against the Desired Character Statements in the Development Plan (what the Development Plan envisages for an area), and we have identified where there are consistencies and inconsistencies.
