23 Development on land used for the purposes of an existing registered club
(1) A consent authority must not consent to a development application made pursuant to this Chapter to carry out development on land that is used for the purposes of an existing registered club unless the consent authority is satisfied that:(a) the proposed development provides for appropriate measures to separate the club from the residential areas of the proposed development in order to avoid land use conflicts, and(b) an appropriate protocol will be in place for managing the relationship between the proposed development and the gambling facilities on the site of the club in order to minimise harm associated with the misuse and abuse of gambling activities by residents of the proposed development.Note.The Gaming Machines Act 2001 and the regulations made under that Act provide for gambling harm minimisation measures.(2) For the purposes of subclause (1) (a), some of the measures to which a consent authority may have regard include (but are not limited to) the following:(a) any separate pedestrian access points for the club and the residential areas of the proposed development,(b) any design principles underlying the proposed development aimed at ensuring acceptable noise levels in bedrooms and living areas in the residential areas of the proposed development.Note.See also clause 34 in relation to noise minimisation design principles.
