9.3.7 Telecommunications facility use
This code applies to a material change of use for telecommunications facilities where the code is identified as applicable in the tables of assessment. When using this code, reference should be made to section 5.3.2 and where applicable, section 5.3.3 located in Part 5.
Note—Low impact telecommunications facilities are not regulated by the planning scheme. The Telecommunications (Low Impact Facilities) Determination 1997 provides a full list of low impact facilities. Low impact facilities remain the responsibility of the Commonwealth.
- The purpose of the telecommunications facilities use code is to ensure that telecommunication facilities are located, designed and managed to minimise impacts on the amenity of adjoining premises.
- The purpose of the code will be achieved through the following overall outcomes:
- Development does not unreasonably impact on the amenity of adjoining premises and the zone.
- Development facilitates co–location of infrastructure wherever possible.
- Development does not unreasonably impact on the character and streetscape of the locality.
