Natural Ground Levels

Natural Ground Levels

A number of development standards in the Town’s local planning framework utilise natural ground level for a method for calculating the height of buildings and other structures for assessment. 

When assessing development applications, the Town uses the contour levels shown on the Town’s GIS (Intramaps) mapping system.

To make the contour levels appear please select the contour layer on the left side of the screen after opening Intramaps.

These are the contour levels determined to be the natural ground level of the site as opposed to an artificially modified state which may have occurred over time before a proposed development.

These contour levels are to be shown on the site plan and all elevations.
