F. Articulation On Corner Lots
Homes on corner lots must address the secondary frontage by incorporating the same or similar design features to those used on the primary frontage. This may include:
− Windows with matching head heights
− Highlight materials and finishes that wrap around from the primary facade
− Pergolas, porticos, porches, verandahs and balconies
− Roof elements, such as feature gables
− Other treatments to the satisfaction of the DAP
Materials used on the front façade must extend to the secondary frontage for a minimum of 3.0m. Blank walls forward of the Return Fence are not permitted. Corner features must be forward of the return fence and visible from the public realm.
If the side wall of the dwellings first level is facing a side street, it must not be constructed less than 900mm in height when measured from the natural ground level.
Lots with a side boundary that abuts open space must contain a double storey dwelling and should include features that maximise passive surveillance of the neighbouring green space such as large windows or balconies. Fencing forward of the return fence and on the boundary of the open space should have a minimum 25% transparency and a maximum height of 1.5m. Fencing on the rest of the abutting boundary should follow requirements for corner fences. For details on materials required see Fencing section.
In addition to the above requirements, dwellings on Corner Lots must include eaves to all sides facing the public realm, unless otherwise approved by the DAP.
