CITY OF DAREBIN REFUSAL TO GRANT A PERMIT
WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR THE REFUSAL?
1. The height of the development fails to reflect the predominantly low scale dwellings in
the street, resulting in the presentation of dominant form and scale to the street.
2 Dwellings 6, 7 and 8 present a substandard level of internal amenity as a result of
screening measures which restrict outlook and access to daylight.
3 The car parking provision does not achieve Clause 52.06 of the Darebin planning scheme.
4 The proposal represents an over development of the site
5 The proposal is inconsistent with Clauses 55.03-3 B8 site coverage, 55.03-4 B9
permeability, 55.0401 B17 side rear setbacks, 55.04-2 B18 Walls on boundaries and
55.05-6 B30 storage.
6 The application does not adequately address the privacy issues of the in ground pool at 5 Gilles street, particularly in relation to the position and location of balconies if Units 7 and 8.
