PROPOSED OUTBUILDING – 12 (LOT 215) COASTAL CREST, BULLER

Published on Tuesday, 4 June 2024 at 10:52:14 AM

The Shire of Chapman Valley has received an application for an outbuilding upon 12 (Lot 215) Coastal Crest, Buller.

The outbuilding is proposed to have a side and rear boundary setback of 1.2m which is at a lesser distance than the 7.5m listed in Table 1 of the Residential Design Codes of Western Australia for the ‘Residential R2.5’ zone.

 

The proposed shed would be clad in Shale Grey colorbond wall and roof cladding, and Wallaby colour flashings, to match the residence that has been previously issued a Shire building permit upon this property.

 

The proposed shed would have a floor area of 160m², and this meets with the maximum 180m² total floor area requirement of the Shire of Chapman Valley Outbuildings Local Planning Policy for the ‘Residential R2.5’ zone.

 

The proposed outbuilding would have a a wall height of 4m and a total height of 4.882m. However the outbuilding would be sited on fill to achieve a level site area, which would be 0.32m above natural ground level at its highest point at the south-western corner of the shed. This would result in the shed having a wall height of 4.32m above natural ground level at its highest point (in the south-west corner) and a gable height of 5.162m above natural ground level on the western shed elevation.

 

The proposed outbuilding would therefore exceed the height requirements of the Shire of Chapman Valley Outbuildings Local Planning Policy for the ‘Residential R2.5’ zone which sets a maximum 4m wall height, and 5m total height, with these measurements taken from natural ground level.

 

Due to the application proposing variation to the boundary setback requirements of the R-Codes, and the height requirements of the Outbuildings Policy, the Shire is inviting comment upon this matter prior to the application being presented to a meeting of Council for determination.
