Proposed Revision of Fees for Detailed Road Frontage Designs

Consultation has concluded

During its meeting on 11th May 2015, Council resolved to pursue a cost-recovery model for the Detailed Frontage Design Application process (BDS130-15). The adjusted fee structure proposed is:

For Development Works under $300,000 the fee will be $565

For Development Works greater than $300,000 the fee will be 0.2% to a maximum of $30,000.

A Detailed Frontage Design is required for any development within the road reserve or “verge” area in front of private property. Typically this space is where Council assets such as driveways, kerb and gutter, drainage infrastructure, street lighting and street furniture is located. Other organisations assets are also located in this public land area for the provision of services such as Ausgrid kiosks, Telstra pits and traffic signals controls.

A quality Detailed Frontage Design considers the interplay of civil assets, along with the patterns of use and needs of the community. It does so by considering pedestrian access needs (gradient and paths of travel), crime prevention through environmental design (eg: lighting) and the surrounding strategic growth patterns that mean greater traffic, vehicular or on foot, are catered for given that many of these assets will last decades once constructed.
