           fencing
       • Architectural and roof styles
       • Any other notable features or characteristics of the neighbourhood.

Detail required
To satisfy the above requirement the following information is to be provided with the

        • Any other notable features or characteristics of the neighbourhood.
• Written explanation, supported by diagrams and/or streetscape elevation plans,
