About this determination


Discussed whether the household units proposed had special features of being ‘retirement suites’ as ‘specialised accommodation’ under section 7 of the Act, and whether this qualified them to seek modification of Clause G6 under section 67 of the Act. At the request of the authority, discussion was broadened to provide comment on the interpretation of G6 for horizontal impact noise; diagonal, vertical and horizontal assemblies and ‘abutting’ units.
