E3 Site works
E3. 1 Considerations
Site works should minimise disturbance to existing conditions and must provide acceptable standards of construction which will ensure that no off-site effects will occur.
Matters to be considered include:
- the extent of excavation and filling;
- the form of retention proposed for cut and fill batters;
- the potential impact of the changes in levels on adjoining properties and structures; and
- the concentration of surface and sub-surface drainage.
To ensure the stability of the tennis court site.
To contain off-site effects so as to cause no detriment to adjoining land or structures.
To limit the impact of increased stormwater run-off on drainage systems.
E3.3 Performance requirements
E3.3.1: The site on which the court is to be constructed must not have a slope of more than 20 per cent overall.
E3.3.2: Excavation or filling must not exceed 1 metre in depth within 1 metre of a property boundary.
E3.3.3: Filling must not exceed 2.5 metres in depth at any point on the court site.
E3.3.4: Drainage resulting from the court must be intercepted to avoid any overflow and must be connected to an approved point of discharge.
