Council's Planning Scheme specifies minimum criteria for design and siting standards. Default provisions are also specified in Part 1.0 of The Queensland Development Code.
The Standards must apply unless Council approval to relaxation is granted. A "Siting Variation Application Form" to relax these Standards must be submitted to Council accompanied by specific details of the reasons as to why a relaxation is required.
Payment of fees, in accordance with the Fees and Charges Schedule, is also required.
