Proposed Development

The proposal is to erect a brick courtyard wall on the boundary and an inground
swimming pool forward of the primary building line.

Siting

The site is an allotment consisting of a brick veneer dwelling situated on the

Courtyard Wall

Comment:

The courtyard wall requires a development consent under Development Control
Plan No 30. The applicant proposes to erect the brick courtyard wall on the
primary building line boundary to allow the proposed swimming pool to have
sufficient area around it for safe movement. It is considered the courtyard wall
will meet the objectives to allow the erection for the following reasons:

1        The footpath reserve forward of the courtyard wall is approximately 10
         metres wide and landscaped.

2        The applicant will be required to provide a landscaped indentation in the
         courtyard wall to reduce the impact of the length of the wall when viewed
         from Hill Street.

3        The proposed courtyard wall and inground swimming pool will not
         adversely affect the adjoining neighbourhood or streetscape.

4        The proposal complies with DCP 22 as the average setback is at least 1.5
         metres.
Objections

Adjoining property owners and occupiers were notified of the proposed
development in accordance with Council’s Notification Policy. No submissions
have been received.

Conclusion

It is considered reasonable for Council to permit the erection of the courtyard wall
and inground swimming pool in this instance due to the circumstances of the
case. It if further considered that the proposed development will not adversely
affect the adjoining owners.

Having considered all the relevant matters under 79 (c) of the Environmental
