               of Hobart Planning Scheme 1982, in that it will not minimise visual

               neighbouring dwelling units.

            5. The proposal is contrary to the Zone Objective of the Residential 1
               Zone (Clause 5.7) and Clause PC1.5(e) of the City of Hobart
               Planning Scheme 1982, in that it will not sustain, complement or
               enhance the character and amenity of the surrounding established
               residential area.

            6. The proposal is contrary to Clauses PC2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 and 2.5 of
               the City of Hobart Planning Scheme 1982, in that two flats do not
               have private open space.

            7. The proposal is contrary to Clause PC3.1(c) of the City of Hobart
               Planning Scheme 1982, in that it will impact on the availability of
               on-street carparking.

                                Rationale: The debate at the Development
                                and Environmental Services Committee
                                meeting on 20 July 2009 highlighted the lack
                                of a discrete planning schedule dealing with
                                alternative energy structures such a wind
                                turbines and solar panels on major and
                                heritage buildings in Hobart. The issue of
                                commissioning and decommissioning was a
                                significant factor such that it was debated
                                whether it is ultra vires for Council to put
                                such a condition in place, despite the
                                workplace safety and aesthetic sensibility of
                                doing so. The issues of impacts of adjacent
                                buildings impacting on tower heights, and the
                                choices of types of technologies was
                                highlighted with the issues raised by Aurora,
                                particularly whether anyone has a right to a
                                radio spectrum “line of sight”, just as no one
                                has a right to a view. Whether the fate of a
                                recent development application and how it
                                will be managed at the Sullivan’s Cove
                                Waterfront Authority, if the Council has
                                concerns over controlling its building skylines
                                in terms of alternative technological
                                structures, and allowing that technological
                                development proceeds at a far faster rate than
                                the ability to amend the Planning Scheme, it
                                needs to have a clear policy message to send
                                to prospective developers, just as it has done
                                over bushland skylines.”
