2 Duplex at Bader
The size and scale of the duplexes are consistent with the expected character and amenity of the General Residential Zone. They integrate well with the surrounding environment in terms of their design and layout.
The proposal is designed to address the front interface through planting, fenestration facing the street and a separate pedestrian pathway. These mitigate the effects of the parking spaces being within the front setback and promote passive surveillance, accessibility and create visual interest.
The proposal provides a good level of on-site amenity. The proposal has adequate outdoor living spaces which will be functional and receive sunlight throughout the day. The service areas are usable and able to accommodate rubbish/recycling storage and clothing lines.
The design of the vehicle crossings and manoeuvring areas will ensure the safety and efficiency of the transport network will not be compromised.
Examination of the engineering plans and auditing of the works will allow Council to confirm that the engineering aspects of the work have been satisfactorily completed.
The Engineering requirements for water, wastewater and stormwater will ensure that the development will be adequately provided with services when completed. Examination of the engineering plans and auditing of works will allow Council to confirm that the engineering aspects of the work have been satisfactorily completed.
Formation of the parking and manoeuvring areas allows for all-weather use and helps to protect the amenity values of neighbouring properties.
Removal of the obsolete vehicle crossing will assist safe and efficient vehicle movement on the carriageway and enhance the safety of footpath users.
Designing and implementing a system for the treatment and management of stormwater runoff will ensure that people and properties are protected, and ecological values preserved.
The proposed development is sustainable and any adverse effects created from the application are acceptable. Overall the proposal is consistent with the purpose and principles of the Resource Management Act.
The geotechnical condition will ensure that the foundations of the proposed dwellings are constructed to mitigate any potential natural hazard risk.
