Built Form Policy Amendments

Consultation has concluded

We are seeking community comment on proposed changes to the City's Built Form Policy. The Built Form Policy was created in 2016 to ensure all new developments fit in with our neighbourhood, respect our character and identity and respond to specific local circumstances.

Our proposed changes to the policy seek to improve requirements relating to the areas of landscaping, setbacks, building design and environmentally-sustainable design.

The full draft policy is also available to view here, along with the tracked changes from the existing policy here. To help you understand our proposal, four information sheets have been prepared on each key area.

  1. Landscaping
  2. Lot Boundary Setbacks
  3. Building Design
  4. Environmentally Sustainable Design

To have your say on the proposed changes, the below survey will be available until 11 December 2018. The survey is also available to complete in person at our Administration Centre (244 Vincent Street).
