The proposed development should consider the visual and acoustic privacy of neighbours in the vicinity and residents by:
(a)  appropriate site planning, the location and design of windows and balconies, the use of screening devices and landscaping, and
(b)  ensuring acceptable noise levels in bedrooms of new dwellings by locating them away from driveways, parking areas and paths.
 The Australian and New Zealand Standard entitled AS/NZS 2107–2000, Acoustics—Recommended design sound levels and reverberation times for building interiors and the Australian Standard entitled AS 3671—1989, Acoustics—Road traffic noise intrusion—Building siting and construction, published by Standards Australia, should be referred to in establishing acceptable noise levels.
