Fact Sheet, Noosa Plan 2020, Town Planning

Noosa Council is proposing to amend The Noosa Plan for the Shire of Noosa. Draft amendments are currently on public display and the community is invited to provide feedback.

Submissions Close on 2 October 2015.

It is proposed to increase the minimum rear boundary setback for houses in an effort to protect the amenity of neighbours. While houses can be as close as 1.5 meters from the boundary now, depending on the size and dimensions of the lot, houses will be setback at least 3 meters with upper storeys setback further.

Noosa Council’s online Noosa Plan fact sheet asks:

“Will it be more onerous to build a house on an existing block?”

Their response is:

“In a word – maybe.”

Current requirements

The current requirements within the Noosa Plan for a Detached house rear setback is 1.5m for the first 4.5m of building height, then a further setback of 0.5m for building height to 7.5m in height.

The adjoining drawing now illustrates with the shaded area the proposed setback of 3m to a height of 4.5m, this means you have lost 1.5m in depth of previously developable land on your block.

The building footprint for your house to be designed within is now smaller on the ground.

Proposed setbacks

The proposed setbacks go even further with any building height over 4.5m to be setback a distance of 6m. This is illustrated showing the impact on the 2nd floor of this dwelling.

This set back will now remove 4m of previously developable space at a second-floor level.

It will impact on building design, orientation for views, capturing of natural ventilation and passive solar design.

We, a group of moteliers in Roma engaged RG Strategic for a complex town planning matter that required reviewing of past approvals and Council reports. RG Strategic provided us with a clear and detailed proposal on the strategy to undertake the review. From the time they were engaged, their Director Russell Green took personal action to engage with us and keep us informed at each step. RG Strategic were professional in their manner, keeping open the channels of communication, along with breaking down the town planner speak so we could understand all of the reports. Professional, engaging, and delivering results on time, we couldn’t have asked for more, We highly recommend for professional town planning advice, Russell and his team at RG Strategic.

Russell assisted us through our applications for a Liquor Licence and a Food Licence. 2 things we could "set and forget" and not worry about, allowing us to concentrate on other important issues to get the business up and running. These were completed with minimal fuss and within our timelines.
