SEPP 65 and the Apartment Design Guide:
What the changes mean to the design of apartment buildings in NSW
Thursday 17 September 9:00am - 12:30pm
Michael Zanardo architect and principal of Studio Zanardo
Jesse McNicoll Urban Design Coordinator, City of Sydney
Philip Thalis founding principal of Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects
In June, the NSW Department of Planning and Environment released the amendment to the State Environmental Planning Policy No 65 - Design Quality of Residential Flat Development (SEPP 65) and introduced an Apartment Design Guide (ADG) to replace the Residential Flat Design Code (RFDC) and associated policies. These changes formally came into effect on the 17th July 2015.
As a follow up to the recent CPD session held at Tusculum presenting the changes to SEPP65 and summarising the new Apartment Design Guide, this seminar will go a step further and examine the thinking behind the changes, expand on key clauses and what they mean, unpack the relationship between the SEPP and its accompanying guide and discuss the process of working with them.
In particular, the seminar will cover:
- key clauses in SEPP65 and their interpretation
- the ADG, what you need to do with it and how you use it
- the principle objectives in SEPP65 and the ADG
- the EP&A regulations
- the eight areas of SEPP65 that override Council’s DCP’s
- the City of Sydney’s interpretation of SEPP65
- City of Sydney’s Design Excellence process
- Council’s assessment procedure
- Design Review Panels
- a series of case studies that look at what the changes mean for the design of apartment buildings in NSW
