    Review the 'Desired Character Statement' and tell us what you think...

    The Desired Character Statement forms an important part of the Development Plan policy. The role of the Desired Character Statement is not to simply describe the existing character traits of an area (as is commonly found in Development Plans), but rather, to provide clear guidance for new development on how to appropriately respond and respect those character traits. It should therefore focus on future development, and not past development.

    Check out the proposed policy issues, and tell us what you think...

    The purpose of any policy response is to ensure that the character traits are carefully managed and maintained as an integral part of the suggested policy area. It is once again important to note that the intent of the policy is not to “preserve” properties, as would be the case for Historic Conservation Areas, but to ensure that any new development is respectful to the established character.

    Council needs to balance the consideration of the management of the established character, with the desire to provide greater housing diversity and dwelling types to achieve broader strategic goals.

    With this in mind, the following policy responses are suggested for the recommended streetscape character areas.

    • Land Division & Dwelling Types
    • Building Height
    • Built Form
    • Setbacks
    • Parking / Garaging
    • Fencing

    Do you agree with these proposed policy issues?

    Sixteen areas are identified as warranting specific Development Plan policies to ensure their character is managed and enhanced (click here to see the map). The key criterion in assessing these areas was that 50% of the housing was pre 1940’s. These locations are listed below:
