2.6.4 Industrial zone Preferred development intent

Development provides for a range of industrial and commercial activities such as service industry, low impact industry, limited medium impact industry, warehouses and ancillary showrooms and small scale offices.

Other uses that complement the intended industrial-commercial character of the locality may also occur, such as service station, shop (not exceeding 250m2 GFA) and indoor sport and recreation. Built form provisions

Building formScale and bulk

A maximum length of 30m on any one outer building wall on the street frontage.

A maximum wall length of 10m between building articulations.

Development is oriented to the street frontage.

Development on a corner lot is oriented to address both street frontages.

Lots are oriented so that buildings can be sited to maximise passive solar design, including generally east-west orientation lots along Abbotsford Road and north-south orientation along all other streets.
Site CoverMaximum site cover 75%, not including hardstand areas.
FencesFront fences or walls must be 50% visually permeable and no higher than 1.5m.

Rooftops of large span buildings incorporate natural lighting fixtures.

Roofs are designed to ensure plant and equipment are screened or otherwise integrated with the overall roof design.

Varied roof forms are incorporated to contribute to the architectural distinction of the building.

Roof top areas can be utilised for employee recreation, solar energy, cool roof and green roof uses. Urban design

Building elements and appearance

Buildings are to be well articulated with varied materials and design details, signage, recessed doors and doorways, windows, shade and screening devices and outdoor planting that provides a distinctively industrial-commercial appearance.

Building form allows for cross ventilation and supports a naturally ventilated and comfortable environment.

LandscapeDevelopment provides landscaped areas along a minimum length of 50% of street frontages.
Ground level treatment

Ground level building elements are to introduce a variety of details and finishes.

Front entries to all buildings are to be emphasised through architectural and landscape treatment, pedestrian paths and awnings so as to be obvious without the need for signage and address requirements for active frontages.

Buildings incorporate appropriate weather protection, screening and shading structures on the building facades to channel breezes, filter sunlight and provide rain protection.

Buildings with a width of greater than 30m should be set back from both side boundaries in order to minimise the impact of a continuous built form along the street frontage.

Pedestrian generating uses including showroom and office components are located at the street frontage to provide visual interest to the street, create a more activated environment and promote in passive surveillance.

Buildings should be designed to address car parking areas with windows and entrances providing passive surveillance.
Public realm

Development addresses and provides passive surveillance of its interface with the street and other adjoining public spaces.

Streetscape treatments facilitate pedestrian and cycle amenity and safety.
