ADOPTION OF MAJOR AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF TOWNSVILLE PLANNING SCHEME - AMENDMENT PACKAGE 2017/06

SECTION 20 OF THE PLANNING ACT 2016

Notice is given under the Planning Act 2016 that on 22 June 2022, Townsville City Council adopted a major amendment to the planning scheme for the City of Townsville (Townsville City Plan).

The purpose and general effect of the major amendment is to make changes to development codes and mapping to ensure that the City of Townsville Planning Scheme remains up-to-date and reflects modern standards and practices.

The proposed amendment includes:

  • Part 6 Zones: Vehicle movements associated with Home based business activities have been changed to ensure that the term “Trip” identified in the relevant zone codes aligns with the “Trip” definition included in the Traffic impact assessments section of the Development manual planning scheme policy.
  • Part 5 Tables of assessment and Part 6 Zones: Part 5 Tables of assessment have been changed to nominate Secondary dwellings as Accepted development subject to requirements in the residential zone codes. Additional assessment benchmarks have also been included to ensure that Secondary dwelling developments remain subordinate to an existing dwelling located on a site.
  • Part 6 Zones: Additional Accepted development benchmarks have been included within a number of zones with respect to the Caretaker’s accommodation use to ensure that a Caretaker’s accommodation use remains secondary to the primary use of the site.
  • Part 9 Development codes: Changes to the Advertising devices code includes a full review of the code and the inclusion of additional criteria relating to advertising devices that include illuminated or digital faces and those devices located on vehicular trailers.
  • Schedule 2 Mapping: Zoning Map ZM-003 has been amended to include 125m² of land located within Loop Road, Paluma in the Environmental management and conservation zone to better reflect the use of the land.
  • Schedule 2 Mapping: Zoning Map ZM-026 has been amended to remove the zoning designation from land that has now been included as part of the Townsville Ring Road.
  • Schedule 2 Mapping: Zoning Map ZM-028 has been amended to include land previously designated as road reserve but which has now been amalgamated into an adjoining land parcel at Gilbert Crescent, North Ward.
  • Schedule 2 Mapping: Zoning Map ZM-037 has been amended to remove land (1.4km long and 0.50m wide) from the Rural residential zone to the Open space zone to better reflect the use of the land.

The major amendment to the Townsville City Plan will commence on Monday 8 August 2022.

From the date of commencement:

  1. Copies of the Townsville City Plan will be available for inspection and purchase at Townsville City Council, Customer Service Centre, ground floor, 103 Walker Street, Townsville City; and
  2. The Townsville City Plan will be available to view and download from Council’s website at townsville.qld.gov.au
