Building height

    (1)     If—

        (a)     an allotment is in a zone of a planning scheme specified in Schedule 6; and

        (b)     that zone, or a schedule to that zone, specifies a maximum height for buildings—

the height of a building on that allotment must not exceed the relevant height specified in that zone or schedule (as the case may be).

    (2)     If subregulation (1) does not apply, the height of a building must not exceed—

        (a)     10 m if the slope of the natural ground level at any cross section of the site of the building that is wider than 8 m is 2·5° or more; and

        (b)     9 m in any other case.

    (3)     If a wall is constructed in accordance with regulation 80, and despite regulation 79, any part of a building on the allotment that is within 1 m of a side or rear boundary and that is adjacent to the wall must be constructed so as not to exceed the height formed by a line that connects—

        (a)     any point at the top of the wall; and

        (b)     any point at a height of 3·6 m at a setback of 1 m from the boundary.

    (4)     The report and consent of the relevant council must be obtained to an application for a building permit in relation to a design that does not comply with this regulation.
