6.1   Acid sulfate soils
(1)  The objective of this clause is to ensure that development does not disturb, expose or drain acid sulfate soils and cause environmental damage.
(2)  Development consent is required for the carrying out of works described in the Table to this subclause on land shown on the Acid Sulfate Soils Map as being of the class specified for those works.
Class of land
Works
1
Any works.
2
Works below the natural ground surface.
Works by which the watertable is likely to be lowered.
3
Works more than 1 metre below the natural ground surface.
Works by which the watertable is likely to be lowered more than 1 metre below the natural ground surface.
4
Works more than 2 metres below the natural ground surface.
Works by which the watertable is likely to be lowered more than 2 metres below the natural ground surface.
5
Works within 500 metres of adjacent Class 1, 2, 3 or 4 land that is below 5 metres Australian Height Datum and by which the watertable is likely to be lowered below 1 metre Australian Height Datum on adjacent Class 1, 2, 3 or 4 land.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted under this clause for the carrying out of works unless an acid sulfate soils management plan has been prepared for the proposed works in accordance with the Acid Sulfate Soils Manual and has been provided to the consent authority.
(4)  Despite subclause (2), development consent is not required under this clause for the carrying out of works if:
(a)  a preliminary assessment of the proposed works prepared in accordance with the Acid Sulfate Soils Manual indicates that an acid sulfate soils management plan is not required for the works, and
(b)  the preliminary assessment has been provided to the consent authority and the consent authority has confirmed the assessment by notice in writing to the person proposing to carry out the works.
(5)  Despite subclause (2), development consent is not required under this clause for the carrying out of any of the following works by a public authority (including ancillary work such as excavation, construction of access ways or the supply of power):
(a)  emergency work, being the repair or replacement of the works of the public authority that is required to be carried out urgently because the works have been damaged, have ceased to function or pose a risk to the environment or to public health and safety,
(b)  routine maintenance work, being the periodic inspection, cleaning, repair or replacement of the works of the public authority (other than work that involves the disturbance of more than 1 tonne of soil),
(c)  minor work, being work that costs less than $20,000 (other than drainage work).
(6)  Despite subclause (2), development consent is not required under this clause to carry out any works if:
(a)  the works involve the disturbance of less than 1 tonne of soil, such as occurs in carrying out agriculture, the construction or maintenance of drains, extractive industries, dredging, the construction of artificial water bodies (including canals, dams and detention basins) or foundations, or flood mitigation works, or
(b)  the works are not likely to lower the watertable.
6.1A   Earthworks
(1)  The objectives of this clause are as follows:
(a)  to ensure that earthworks for which development consent is required will not have a detrimental impact on environmental functions and processes, neighbouring uses, cultural or heritage items or features of the surrounding land,
(b)  to allow earthworks of a minor nature without requiring separate development consent.
(2)  Development consent is required for earthworks unless:
(a)  the work is exempt development under this Plan or another applicable environmental planning instrument, or
(b)  the work is ancillary to other development for which development consent has been given.
(3)  Before granting development consent for earthworks, the consent authority must consider the following matters:
(a)  the likely disruption of, or any detrimental effect on, existing drainage patterns and soil stability in the locality,
(b)  the effect of the proposed development on the likely future use or redevelopment of the land,
(c)  the quality of the fill or the soil to be excavated, or both,
(d)  the effect of the proposed development on the existing and likely amenity of adjoining properties,
(e)  the source of any fill material and the destination of any excavated material,
(f)  the likelihood of disturbing relics,
(g)  the proximity to and potential for adverse impacts on any watercourse, drinking water catchment or environmentally sensitive area.
Note.
 The National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974, particularly section 86, deals with disturbing or excavating land and Aboriginal objects.
6.2   Foreshore building line
(1)  The objective of this clause is to ensure that development in the foreshore area will not impact on natural foreshore processes or affect the significance and amenity of the area.
(2)  Development consent must not be granted for development on land in the foreshore area except for the following purposes:
(a)  the extension, alteration or rebuilding of an existing building wholly or partly in the foreshore area,
(b)  the erection of a building in the foreshore area, if the levels, depth or other exceptional features of the site make it appropriate to do so,
(c)  development for the purposes of boat sheds, sea retaining walls, wharves, slipways, jetties, waterway access stairs, swimming pools, fences, cycleways, walking trails, picnic facilities or other recreation facilities (outdoors).
(3)  Development consent must not be granted under subclause (2) unless the consent authority is satisfied that:
(a)  the development will contribute to achieving the objectives for the zone in which the land is located, and
(b)  the appearance of any proposed structure, from both the waterway and adjacent foreshore areas, will be compatible with the surrounding area, and
(c)  the development will not cause environmental harm such as:
(i)  pollution or siltation of the waterway, or
(ii)  an adverse effect on surrounding uses, marine habitat, wetland areas, flora or fauna habitats, or
(iii)  an adverse effect on drainage patterns, and
(d)  the development will not cause congestion of, or generate conflicts between, people using open space areas or the waterway, and
(e)  opportunities to provide continuous public access along the foreshore and to the waterway will not be compromised, and
(f)  any historic, scientific, cultural, social, archaeological, architectural, natural or aesthetic significance of the land on which the development is to be carried out and of surrounding land will be maintained, and
(g)  in the case of development for the alteration or rebuilding of an existing building wholly or partly in the foreshore area, the alteration or rebuilding will not have an adverse impact on the amenity or aesthetic appearance of the foreshore, and
(h)  sea level rise and change of flooding patterns as a result of climate change have been considered.
6.3   Riparian land
(1)  The objective of this clause is to ensure that development does not adversely impact on riparian land.
(2)  This clause applies to land shown as “riparian land” on the Riparian Land Map.
(3)  Despite any other provision of this Plan, development consent must not be granted for development on land to which this clause applies unless the consent authority has considered the impact of the proposed development on the land and any opportunities for rehabilitation of aquatic and riparian vegetation and habitat on that land.
6.4   Environmental protection land
(1)  This clause applies to land shown as “environmental protection land” on the Environmental Protection Land Map.
(2)  Despite any other provision of this Plan, development consent must not be granted for development on land to which this clause applies unless the consent authority has considered the impact of the proposed development on the vegetation, topography and distinctive features of the land.
