Homes must be approved by the Design Assessment Panel (DAP) prior to lodging for any building permit or commencing any construction works. The DAP is appointed by Jinding to oversee and implement the
objectives of the Design Guidelines.
The Design Guidelines may be changed from time to time at the DAP’s discretion. Applications will be assessed against the current version of the Design Guidelines.
Interpretation and application of these Design Guidelines is at the sole discretion of the DAP. The DAP’s decisions are final. No claims shall be made to the Developer, DAP or their representatives with respect to the decisions made.
The DAP reserves the right to vary or waive the requirements of the Design Guidelines if it believes that a proposal (or element of a proposal) that is not strictly in accordance with the wording of the Design Guidelines nonetheless makes a positive contribution to the overall objectives of the built form and/or streetscapes at Octave.
Note: A proposal that does not comply with the Design Guidelines may require Council planning permission, in the event that the proposed variation is also contrary to the Botanic Ridge Precinct Structure Plan Residential Design Controls.
Allowance has been made for two submissions for each Design Approval application. Each additional submission may incur an administration fee, at the sole discretion of the DAP. New submissions for a lot that has already had an application approved may also incur an administration fee.
