Site Features

The site has a relatively flat terrain at an approximate level of 4.50m AOD throughout. The development site is bisected by an existing 1650mm x 1400mm surface water culvert and in part by an existing 900mm diameter foul sewer overflow pipeline.


New development on the site such as that proposed in the concept scheme could be serviced by a new and independent gravity foul water network to an existing manhole located on the existing 225mm diameter public combined sewer within the grassed area to the south of the site.

Storm Water

Surface water flows from any new development may be discharged via a new manhole in the existing 1650x1400mm culvert traversing the site.


Water supply to the site may be provided from the 4 inch public watermain located along the existing footpath to the south of the site.

Site Condition

It is understood that the subject site was used for oil related activities until the mid-1980s. In 2005 the top 1 metre of material was remediated to a safe exposure level to allow for development directly above this layer. The remediation strategy devised at that time also recommended that at-grade gardens be avoided. To allow for this, the concept scheme allows for raised gardens to be provided as part of the development.
