The design of the duplex dwellings will provide good on-site amenity to residents. Fencing and the planting will provide privacy to each unit and improve the streetscape amenity of the site, and fencing and walls will tie in with the appearance of the duplex dwellings.


The design of the duplex dwellings will ensure that there are sufficient spaces on each site for residential activities to be undertaken on the site. The duplex dwellings will be designed to face the transport corridor, and the layout of parking will not be out of character with the amenity anticipated in the residential zone. The planting of vegetation in open areas in the front yards will assist in softening the built appearance of the site.
