Design objectives

To protect and enhance the identity and character of the centre.

To ensure new development respects heritage buildings and precincts.

To respect the character and amenity of adjacent residential areas.

To achieve a high standard of architecture and urban design.

To encourage ecologically sustainable development.

To reduce private vehicle travel to and around the centre and encourage people to use
public transport, walking and cycling as alternate modes of transport.

To create a safe environment that is conducive to walking, cycling and public transport
use at all times of the day.
Permit requirements
A permit is required to construct a building or construct or carry out works, unless
otherwise stated in this schedule. This does not apply to:
 The installation of an automatic teller machine.
 An alteration to an existing building facade provided:
–
The alteration does not include the installation of an external roller shutter.
–
At least 80 per cent of the building facade at ground floor level is maintained as an
entry or window with clear glazing.
 An awning that projects over a road if it is authorised by the relevant public land
manager.
Mandatory requirements
A permit cannot be granted increase the maximum overall building height as set out in this
Schedule other than:
 To accommodate roof top services that are hidden from view from any adjoining public
space or designed as architectural roof top features. Roof top services includes but is
not limited to plant rooms, air conditioning, lift overruns, roof top gardens, decks and
communal outdoor spaces and their ancillary facilities.
 Where the slope of the natural ground level at any cross section wider than 8 metres of
the site of the building is 2.5 degrees or more, in which case the maximum overall
building height may be exceeded by one (1) metre.
 Where an existing building on the subject land already exceeds the mandatory
maximum height allowed under this Schedule. In this event, a permit can be granted to
construct a building or carry out works to the same height as the existing building.
Note: building height excludes roof top plant equipment or similar services.
Application requirements
An application to develop land should include, as appropriate, the following information to
the satisfaction of the responsible authority:
 A statement addressing the design objectives and requirements for the centre and for the
individual precincts as set out in this Schedule.
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OVERLAY - SCHEDULE 15

BOROONDARA PLANNING SCHEME
 An urban context report and design response. The urban context report and design
response must show how the development addresses and achieves:
–
The design objectives of this Schedule and for the relevant precinct;
–
The general requirements of the relevant precinct;
–
For development of five or more storeys, the matters set out in Clause 52.35.
 An Environmental Sustainability Design Statement, which demonstrates how
ecologically sustainable design and Water Sensitive Urban Design principles have been

Exemption from notice and review
An application to subdivide land or construct a building or construct or carry out works is
exempt from the notice requirements of Section 52(1)(a), (b) and (d), the decision
requirements of Section 64(1), (2) and (3) and the review rights of Section 82(1) of the
Act. This exemption does not apply to land within 30 metres of land (not a road) which is

Buildings and Works
The precincts referred to below are the precincts identified on Map 1- Building Heights and
Setbacks and Map 2 - Swinburne University Campus forming part of this Schedule.
All Precincts
General Requirements
Building setbacks
 Developments should be built to the street edge where shown on Map 1 - Building
Heights and Setbacks and Map 2 - Swinburne University Campus and create a
consistent street edge. This may be varied, if a setback is:
–
designed as part of the public domain; and
–
fully accessible to the public.
Buildings should provide continuous weather protection along these streets.
 Where a zero front setback applies, development above 11 metres in height should be
setback a minimum of 5 metres behind the street wall.
Built form
 Development must demonstrate a high quality architectural design that complements
the older buildings in the centre and enhances the centre's eclectic character.
 A consistent street wall parapet height should be created along Burwood Road and
Glenferrie Road.
 Building services and equipment such as air-conditioners, stairwells and lift over-runs
should be located to minimise their visibility from public places and be integrated into
the design of buildings.
 Development should provide appropriately proportioned ground floor spaces that can
accommodate a wide range of retail and commercial uses.
Public realm
 Development should be designed to provide passive surveillance (including at upper
levels) of the public realm, and where practical, activation of streets, parks, public
plazas, laneways and car parks. Blank walls along secondary street frontages are
discouraged.
DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OVERLAY - SCHEDULE 15
PAGE 2 OF 9
BOROONDARA PLANNING SCHEME
 Transparent glazing and pedestrian entrances should be provided at street level along
the primary street frontage.
 Development should incorporate ground floor spaces that allow for uses that provide
interaction with the street and enhance the pedestrian environment.
 Development should incorporate external lighting to enhance the night time appearance
of the buildings and add to pedestrian safety at night.
 Development should avoid extensive overshadowing of public spaces between 11am
and 3pm, measured on 21 March and 22 September.
Residential amenity
 Dwellings must achieve a high level of internal amenity and demonstrate how accesses
to natural daylight and ventilation and visual privacy has been maximised.
 The layout of apartments should take into consideration amenity impacts from nearby
businesses, roads and public transport and mitigate potential amenity impacts for future
occupants.
 Development on land abutting a residential zone, or separated from a residential zone
by a laneway, should be setback from the side and/or rear boundary of the land in a
residential zone in accordance with Clause 55.04-1 Standard B17 of the Planning
Scheme. A laneway can be included as part of the setback calculation.
 Development abutting a residential zone should be designed to minimise impacts on
adjoining residences and demonstrate how overlooking and overshadowing impacts
have been addressed in accordance with the objectives and standards Clause 55 of the
Planning Scheme.
 Building services and equipment should be screened from view of abutting residences
and located to minimise noise impacts on surrounding residential areas.
 Development should not unreasonably compromise the development opportunity of
adjacent properties by maintaining equitable daylight access.
Ecological sustainable development
 New or refurbished buildings should have regard to the incorporation of Ecologically
Sustainable Design techniques to improve the thermal efficiency of the building and
reduce energy and water consumption such as water efficient fittings and fixtures,
recycling and organic waste disposal, solar hot water systems and local energy
generation.
Access
 Garages and driveways should be accessed from laneways and side streets in preference
to Glenferrie Road and Burwood Road.
 Pedestrian access to upper levels should occupy no more than 2 metres of the site
frontage and minimise the loss of active retail and/or commercial frontage to the street.
 New buildings should provide direct pedestrian access from both the street and from
residential and visitor car parking. Provision of pedestrian access from service lanes or
parking areas only is discouraged unless it can be demonstrated that pedestrian access
cannot be provided in any other form.
 If a laneway is to be used for pedestrian access, a safe pedestrian environment must be
provided including (but not limited to) the provision of external lighting, unobstructed
view lines and passive surveillance of the laneway.
Parking
 Development should include spaces for bicycle parking and/or designated parking
spaces for a car sharing scheme or similar sustainable transport initiatives.
