25.1.2 Objectives and Policies: Development Suitability
To ensure the provision of safe, efficient and integrated infrastructure as part of land development.
All development shall provide infrastructure
appropriate for the activity proposed.
Urban development will not be allowed unless appropriate infrastructure is available, or is made available by the developer, and the servicing of this land does not compromise the safety, efficiency and sustainability of planned infrastructure.
Any development of land is carried out in a manner which reflects the physical constraints on its use and development, and minimises any adverse effects on the environment.
Development of land shall:
|i.||Not result in increased risk of erosion, subsidence, slippage or inundation,|
|ii.||Wherever possible, avoid or mitigate any adverse effects on water quality and quantity, and|
|iii.||Avoid or mitigate adverse effects on significant infrastructure.|
Development shall be located and designed to maintain or enhance any:
|i.||Scheduled built heritage item,|
|ii.||Archaeological and cultural site,|
|iii.||Significant tree, and|
|iv.||Significant natural area.|
Land affected by soil contaminants is identified and made safe for its intended use before any change of use, development or subdivision.
Any use, development and subdivision shall minimise the adverse effects that may arise from land affected by soil contaminants.
Land affected by soil contaminants shall be remediated to a level, or managed in a way, that is suitable for its intended use.
Exposure arising from the ongoing use of land affected by soil contaminants shall be managed to avoid or mitigate the risk of adverse effects on human health.
