REASONS FOR DECISION IN RELATION TO
APPLICATION FOR EXCEPTIONAL DEVELOPMENT PERMIT
The decision to refuse to grant an Exceptional Development Permit (EDP) for
Lot 8857 (7) Brinkin Terrace, Town of Nightcliff for the purpose of the addition of a
second dwelling and subdivision to create two lots less than 760m2 in Zone SD
(Single Dwelling Residential) was made pursuant to section 40(2)(d) of the Planning
Actfor the following reasons:
1. The proposal has received large opposition from local residents and other
members of the public.
2. The proposed lot sizes are a significant departure from the Northern Territory
Planning Scheme requirements.
3. The area is characterised by relatively large lots, many of which contain mature
vegetation and dwellings with generous setbacks to boundaries, and the smaller lot
sizes created by the proposal may create an adverse impact on the streetscape and
existing residential character of the area.
4. Future development on the subdivided lots would be inconsistent with the
existing built form and character of the area.
5. The subject site is not identified as an area for change in the Darwin Regional
Land Use Plan 2015.
