State Environmental Planning Policy (Kosciuszko National Park—Alpine Resorts) 2007

Part 1 Preliminary
2   Aim and objectives of Policy
(1)  The aim of this Policy is to protect and enhance the natural environment of the alpine resorts, in the context of Kosciuszko National Park, by ensuring that development in those resorts is managed in a way that has regard to the principles of ecologically sustainable development (including the conservation and restoration of ecological processes, natural systems and biodiversity).
(2)  The objectives of this Policy are as follows:
(a)  to encourage the carrying out of a range of development in the alpine resorts (including the provision of services, facilities and infrastructure, and economic and recreational activities) that do not result in adverse environmental, social or economic impacts on the natural or cultural environment of land to which this Policy applies,
(b)  to put in place planning controls that contribute to and facilitate the carrying out of ski resort development in Kosciuszko National Park that is ecologically sustainable in recognition of the fact that this development is of State and regional significance,
(c)  to minimise the risk to the community of exposure to environmental hazards, particularly geotechnical hazards, bush fire and flooding, by generally requiring development consent on land to which this Policy applies.

(e)  excising from a lot land that is, or is intended to be, used for public purposes, including drainage purposes, rural fire brigade or other emergency service purposes or public conveniences.
14   Matters to be considered by consent authority
Note.
 This clause provides for matters for consideration in addition to those provided for by section 4.15 of the Act. The consent authority is also required to take into account recovery plans and threat abatement plans under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995. (See sections 69 and 86 of that Act.)
(1)  In determining a development application that relates to land to which this Policy applies, the consent authority must take into consideration any of the following matters that are of relevance to the proposed development:
(a)  the aim and objectives of this Policy, as set out in clause 2,
(b)  the extent to which the development will achieve an appropriate balance between the conservation of the natural environment and any measures to mitigate environmental hazards (including geotechnical hazards, bush fires and flooding),
(c)  having regard to the nature and scale of the development proposed, the impacts of the development (including the cumulative impacts of development) on the following:
(i)  the capacity of existing transport to cater for peak days and the suitability of access to the alpine resorts to accommodate the development,
(ii)  the capacity of the reticulated effluent management system of the land to which this Policy applies to cater for peak loads generated by the development,
(iii)  the capacity of existing waste disposal facilities or transfer facilities to cater for peak loads generated by the development,
(iv)  the capacity of any existing water supply to cater for peak loads generated by the development,
(d)  any statement of environmental effects required to accompany the development application for the development,
Note.
 This Policy applies to land that is in the ski resort area described in clause 32A of Schedule 6 to the Act and certain other land. Regulations made under the Act set out requirements relating to the preparation of the statement of environmental effects required to accompany a development application, including specific requirements for a statement of environmental effects relating to the ski resort area if the proposed development is advertised development.
(e)  if the consent authority is of the opinion that the development would significantly alter the character of the alpine resort—an analysis of the existing character of the site and immediate surroundings to assist in understanding how the development will relate to the alpine resort,
(f)  the Geotechnical Policy—Kosciuszko Alpine Resorts (2003, Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources) and any measures proposed to address any geotechnical issues arising in relation to the development,
(g)  if earthworks or excavation works are proposed—any sedimentation and erosion control measures proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts associated with those works,
(h)  if stormwater drainage works are proposed—any measures proposed to mitigate any adverse impacts associated with those works,
(i)  any visual impact of the proposed development, particularly when viewed from the Main Range,
(j)  the extent to which the development may be connected with a significant increase in activities, outside of the ski season, in the alpine resort in which the development is proposed to be carried out,
(k)  if the development involves the installation of ski lifting facilities and a development control plan does not apply to the alpine resort:
(i)  the capacity of existing infrastructure facilities, and
(ii)  any adverse impact of the development on access to, from or in the alpine resort,
(l)  if the development is proposed to be carried out in Perisher Range Alpine Resort:
(i)  the document entitled Perisher Range Resorts Master Plan, as current at the commencement of this Policy, that is deposited in the head office of the Department, and
(ii)  the document entitled Perisher Blue Ski Resort Ski Slope Master Plan, as current at the commencement of this Policy, that is deposited in the head office of the Department,
(m)  if the development is proposed to be carried out on land in a riparian corridor:
(i)  the long term management goals for riparian land, and
(ii)  whether measures should be adopted in the carrying out of the development to assist in meeting those goals.
(2)  The long term management goals for riparian land are as follows:
(a)  to maximise the protection of terrestrial and aquatic habitats of native flora and native fauna and ensure the provision of linkages, where possible, between such habitats on that land,
(b)  to ensure that the integrity of areas of conservation value and terrestrial and aquatic habitats of native flora and native fauna is maintained,
(c)  to minimise soil erosion and enhance the stability of the banks of watercourses where the banks have been degraded, the watercourses have been channelised, pipes have been laid and the like has occurred.
(3)  A reference in this clause to land in a riparian corridor is a reference to land identified as being in such a corridor on a map referred to in clause 5.
15   Additional matters to be considered for buildings
(1) Building height In determining a development application for the erection of a building on land, the consent authority must take into consideration the proposed height of the building (where relevant) and the extent to which that height:
(a)  has an impact on the privacy of occupiers and users of other land, and
(b)  limits solar access to places in the public domain where members of the public gather or to adjoining or nearby land, and
(c)  has an impact on views from other land, and
(d)  if the building is proposed to be erected in Thredbo Alpine Resort—has a visual impact when viewed from the Alpine Way, and
(e)  if the building is proposed to be erected in Perisher Range Alpine Resort—needs to be limited so as to assist in maintaining the skyline when viewed from Kosciuszko Road and any other public roads, and
(f)  if the building is proposed to be erected in an alpine resort other than Thredbo Alpine Resort or Perisher Range Alpine Resort—is similar to existing buildings in the resort where it is proposed to be erected, and
(g)  if the building is proposed to be erected in Bullocks Flat Terminal—relates to the topography of its site.
(2) Building setback In determining a development application for the erection of a building on land, the consent authority must take into consideration the proposed setback of the building (where relevant) and the extent to which that setback:
(a)  assists in providing adequate open space to complement any commercial use in the alpine resort concerned, and
(b)  assists in achieving high quality landscaping between the building and other buildings, and
(c)  has an impact on amenity, particularly on view corridors at places in the public domain where members of the public gather, and
(d)  is adequate for the purposes of fire safety, and
(e)  will enable site access for pedestrians, services (including stormwater drainage and sewerage services) and the carrying out of building maintenance, and
(f)  will facilitate the management of accumulated snow.
(3) Landscaped area In determining a development application for the erection of a building on land, the consent authority must take into consideration (where relevant) the extent to which landscaping should be used:
(a)  as a means of assisting in the protection of the unique alpine environment of the alpine resort concerned, and to maximise its natural visual amenity, for the benefit of visitors and natural ecosystems, and
(b)  to assist in the provision of adequate open space to complement any commercial use in the alpine resort concerned, and
(c)  to limit the apparent mass and bulk of the building, and
(d)  as an amenity protection buffer between the proposed building and other buildings, and
(e)  as a means of reducing run-off, and
(f)  to protect significant existing site features and limit the area of any site disturbed during and after the carrying out of development.
16   Additional matters to be considered for subdivision
Consent must not be granted to the subdivision of land unless the consent authority is satisfied that:
(a)  to the fullest extent practicable, lot boundaries follow ecological, catchment, topographical or other natural boundaries in the vicinity (if any) so as to facilitate the long-term protection of biodiversity values and conservation management, and
(b)  if it is proposed that the land be built on—the land is not subject to flooding or geotechnical risks or is otherwise unsuitable for building purposes, and
(c)  the subdivision will (to the extent relevant) achieve the most efficient use of existing public utility services (such as water supply and sewerage services), and
(d)  the subdivision will not have any significant adverse impact on any of the following plant communities on land identified as containing such a plant community in any Figure (other than Figures 1 and 11) in the Kosciuszko Resorts Vegetation Assessment:
(i)  feldmark,
(ii)  short alpine herbfield,
(iii)  snowpatch.
Note.
 Under Part 8A of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974, it is an offence to gather, pluck, cut, pull up, destroy, poison, take, dig up, remove or injure a plant or any part of a plant that is of, or is part of, a threatened species, endangered population or endangered ecological community (as identified by the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995).
Any change to the boundary of a lease granted under Part 12 of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 requires the approval of the Minister administering that Act.
17   Development applications to be referred to Department of Environment and Climate Change
(1)  The consent authority must, within 7 days of the lodgment of a development application that relates to land to which this Policy applies, refer the application to the Director-General of the Department of Environment and Climate Change for the comment of that Director-General (including in relation to the application of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 to the proposed development).
(2)  Before determining any application referred under subclause (1), the consent authority must consider any comments of the Director-General of the Department of Environment and Climate Change in relation to the application that are received by the consent authority within 28 days after that referral.
(3)  The Director-General of the Department of Planning and the Director-General of the Department of Environment and Climate Change may from time to time make agreements or arrangements as to the circumstances in which development applications need not be referred under subclause (1).
(4)  Despite subclause (1), a development application need not be referred to the Director-General of the Department of Environment and Climate Change if any such agreement or arrangement provides that any such development application need not be referred.
18   Plan of management under National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974
(1)  Consent to a development application may be granted under this Policy even though the application has not established that the development is consistent with a plan of management for Kosciuszko National Park adopted under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
(2)  Nothing in this clause prevents the consent authority from refusing to grant consent to a development application on the basis that the development is not consistent with such a plan of management.
Note.
 Under section 81 (4) of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974, operations on land to which a plan of management under that Act applies may be undertaken only if they are undertaken in accordance with the plan of management, despite any other Act or any instrument made under an Act.

Part 4 Exempt development
19   Exempt development
Note.
 Under section 4.1 of the Act, exempt development may be carried out without the need for development consent under Part 4 of the Act or for assessment under Part 5 of the Act.
The section states that exempt development:
(a)  must be of minimal environmental impact, and
(b)  cannot be carried out in critical habitat of an endangered species, population or ecological community (identified under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 or the Fisheries Management Act 1994), and
(c)  cannot be carried out in a wilderness area (identified under the Wilderness Act 1987).
Specifying a type of development as exempt development does not authorise the contravention of any condition of development consent, or any lease or licence under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974, applying to the land on which the exempt development is carried out. Nor does it authorise the contravention of any other law that may apply, including the prohibitions set out in Part 8A (Threatened species, populations and ecological communities, and their habitats, and critical habitat) of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.
(1)  The objective of this clause is to identify development of minimal environmental impact as exempt development.
(2)  Development specified in Schedule 2 that meets the requirements for the development contained in that Schedule, and that complies with the requirements of this clause, is exempt development.
(3)  To be exempt development, the development:
(a)  must meet the relevant deemed-to-satisfy provisions of the Building Code of Australia, and
(b)  must not, if it relates to an existing building, cause the building to contravene the Building Code of Australia, and
(c)  must not be designated development, and
(d)  must not be carried out on land that comprises, or on which there is, a heritage item that is listed on the State Heritage Register under the Heritage Act 1977 or that is subject to an interim heritage order under the Heritage Act 1977, and
(e)  must not be carried out on land that is an Aboriginal place within the meaning of the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 or that is shown coloured pink or blue in figure 6.1 of Perisher Range Resorts Environmental Study (October 2002), prepared by Connell Wagner Pty Ltd for the National Parks and Wildlife Service.
(4)  Development that relates to an existing building that is classified under the Building Code of Australia as class 1b or class 2–9 is not exempt development unless:
(a)  the building has a current fire safety certificate or fire safety statement, or
(b)  no fire safety measures are currently implemented, required or proposed for the building.
(5)  Development is not exempt development if the development involves damage to any plant that is part of any of the following plant communities on land identified as containing such a plant community in any Figure (other than Figures 1 and 11) in the Kosciuszko Resorts Vegetation Assessment:
(a)  feldmark,
(b)  short alpine herbfield,
(c)  snowpatch.
(6)  In this clause:
damage, in relation to a plant, means the ringbarking, cutting down, topping, lopping, slashing, trimming, removing, poisoning, injury or wilful destruction of the plant.
