According to the planners at Urban Strategies, “The development is to be rendered and painted render to give the appearance of lightweight materials and to break up the form. Balconies, roof overhangs, sunhoods, lattice style screening and batten style balustrades reflecting a modern interpretation of pre-1946 styles. Corrugated metal roof used is the predominant material used on pre-1946 dwelling houses within the street. It is noted that the character of both Upper Clifton and Lower Clifton Terraces is varied, featuring a combination of pyramids, gables, bullnose verandahs and parapets. It is therefore argued that the use of parapets and separate roof forms which protect front balconies suitably complement the traditional styles of the dwelling houses with the streets”.
This applicant is an infill application that removes multiple dwellings to seek an improved development to reflect the storey height, scale and form the Low-Medium Density Residential Zone allows. Council will be required to assess the amenity, height, modern character design of the building integrates, to see if it sits well to the streetscape and area.
