Pearl at Valla Design Guidelines

 

Important points to consider when designing your new home & surrounds:

  • Your home should be the focal point from the street, all auxiliary items such as sheds, pergolas, above ground rainwater tanks etc. that can be seen from the street will be encouraged to be set back from the front of your home and screening will be required, whether that be wooden or plants – this needs to be completed or planted within 3 months of completion of the auxiliary items. All auxiliary items visible from the street need to be approved by the Pearl Design Review Committee (DRC)
  • Your facade should include at least 3 different types of material (not including glass) and the home needs a minimum 600mm eaves
  • External boundaries must be wildlife friendly, so if the wildlife find their way into your yard, they are able to leave the yard – these include post and rail fences or vegetation screening
  • Garages should be stepped back at least 1m front the front of the home
  • Rainwater tank size is a minimum of 75,000 litres, however 10,000 litres of this is to be capped off for the use of bushfire protection with a Storz Fitting
  • Minimum house / roof covering area to be 250m2 to ensure sufficient water is collected
  • You are not permitted to build a shed or live onsite until you receive the Certificate of Completion from your builder

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Lodging your application with our Design Review Committee (DRC) MUST be done prior to applying for your DA Approval from Nambucca Council. If changes are required, you will need to change your DA application, which could attract additional fees.
