Amenity and aesthetics considerations for development policy (amenity and aesthetic impact of shipping containers and railway carriages)

The amenity and aesthetics policy (impact of shipping containers and railway carriages) (PDF,133kB) effective from 17 April 2014, is only applicable to the assessment of shipping containers and railway carriages that are considered to be Class 10a buildings and structures when established on a Residential or Rural Residential zoned site for more than 90 business days.

The amenity and aesthetics policy outlines considerations for siting, screening, colour scheme provisions and limitation on the number of structures within the policy (Table 1.0) and if there is non-compliance to one or more of the provisions, a concurrence agency referral to Fraser Coast Regional Council will be required.

Amenity and aesthetics considerations for development policy (removal / resiting a dwelling)

The objective of this amenity and aesthetics policy (removal / resiting a dwelling) (PDF,133kB), effective from 4 March 2015, is to ensure development for the resiting of a dwelling from one allotment to another allotment does not detract from the amenity or aesthetics of the area.

 In addition, the Policy sets out the amount and type of security required (bonding of work) to ensure that any necessary renovations are completed within an appropriate time frame.

An application for Concurrence Agency Referral must be submitted to Council and approval obtained prior to the removal or resiting of an existing dwelling.
