For all development proposed at Precincts 1 to 5 and 9 at Swanbourne, these Design Guidelines shall be met and proposals endorsed by Mirvac prior to a development application for a statutory Planning Approval and Building Licence from the City of Nedlands.
These Design Guidelines provide background information and set the design quality for Swanbourne. Information is included on site planning; environmental performance requirements; the design of a high quality built form and landscape that responds to the context; and integration of services.
Residential lot development at Swanbourne has been carefully planned to include sustainability measures and to harmonise with site conditions. Particular features of the development include:
an elevated setting and walkable street layout
Lots with opportunities for views of parkland and attractively landscaped streetscapes
a variety of Lots with associated planning and design requirements to suit the site context and dwelling types.
The following points define the purpose of the Design Guidelines; site management; the documentation you will need to prepare; and the process you will need to undertake to have your building plans endorsed by Mirvac prior to lodgement with Council. The steps are clearly outlined and are designed to achieve the results you want within a minimum timeframe and at the least cost to you.
1 PROJECT OBJECTIVES
The aim of these Design Guidelines is to create a development that exists in harmony with the environment at the Swanbourne site and the surrounding area. These guidelines apply to all the residential Lots in Precincts 1 to 5 and 9 at Swanbourne (refer Appendix 1).
The purpose of this document is to prescribe comprehensive building design guidelines to promote appropriate design solutions for development at Swanbourne. The Design Guidelines seek to protect the Lot owner’s interest and investment, and enhance the design quality of dwellings proposed at this development. Specifically, this document promotes the following objectives:
development that has regard for the amenity of adjacent Lots and surrounding public areas
a strong sense of architectural character that is distinctly contemporary and designed with integrity, and reflects different dwelling types and the characteristics of modern lifestyles
residential development that is responsive to the site and context, incorporates passive solar design, achieves thermal comfort and ventilation, is energy efficient, and promotes sustainable water management practices
opportunities for passive surveillance of the public realm, yet respecting individual privacy.
2 STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS
The City of Nedlands has adopted these Design Guidelines and Detailed Area Plans (DAPs) as a Local Planning Policy under Town Planning Scheme No.2 and they should be read in conjunction with the Scheme Text and Planning Policies and Residential Design Codes of WA (R-Codes).
In determining any application for planning approval, the Council will utilise these Guidelines and the DAPs as the primary assessment criteria to be exercised in conjunction with the Scheme and Policies and R-Codes. Where these design guidelines are silent, the Scheme and Residential Design Codes come into effect.
