The Part V Agreement includes requirements by the Launceston City Council related to streetscape trees, landscaping within the subdivision and adjoining the Punchbowl Reserve and the geology of the subdivision.
In legal terms, the current S71 pursuant to LUPA 1993 Agreement is registered as D 64054 and was last executed 18 February 2015. The previous S71 Agreement C892038 is at an end and is the process at LTO of being finalised.
The Punchbowl Reserve is part a fire managed area and the Launceston City Council (LCC) has in place a bushfire hazard management plan.
This includes a burning program for fuel reduction. This is not undertaken every year.
The Reserve also comprises of maintained lawns and open park land.
The surrounding reserve area is therefore classified as MANAGED LAND and BAL Level is LOW.
The LCC has the prime responsibility to maintain appropriately the native and scenic protection values of the Reserve and not to find unnecessary bureaucratic requirements because of there own deficiency in resource management or giving prominence to conflicting government outcomes.
Please refer to LCC guidelines for preparing a PLANNING APPLICATION or contact the Customer Service Centre on 0363 233000 to speak to a planner.
The new planning standards that came into effect on 28 February 2014 in the General Residential Zone has the site area per dwelling of not less than 325m².
Where all the acceptable solutions are met, then two dwellings can be built on a suitable lot having area no less than 650m².
Eastmans Green has a number of sites that would ideal for villa development particularly corner lots as the entrance to the property can be adjusted to suit the site plan.
Eastmans Green is located in the leafy suburb of Newstead in Launceston and is zoned General Residential (Red).

The site classification report completed in accordance with Australian Standard 2870:2011 Residential slabs and footings is a requirement for all new houses in Australia.
We engaged respected Tasmanian engineering geologist Bill Cromer to provide us with site classification reports for each lot available for sale within the subdivision. Bill previously compiled the initial geotechnical reports for the subdivision in 2009 and 2011 as required by Launceston City Council.
The reports are in two parts. Part 1 describes and classifies soil conditions on your lot and Part 2 describes general soil conditions common to the whole Eastmans Green subdivision.
The site classification report is also ready to hand over to the Launceston City Council as part of your planning and building application.
Each report includes besides the site classification, a geotechnical summary and a required wind classification in accordance with Australian Standard 4055:2006 Wind loads for houses.
Have a look at the new fabulous housing in the immediate area and you will see the excellent work of designers and engineers.
The value of this reporting is at least $3,000 and in consultation with a suitably experienced engineer, a cost effective foundation can be drawn up saving more dollars. For example, on hillsides, piered footings in lieu of supporting a concrete slab can be a better alternative as it avoids expensive excavations.
And further, you can build light weight constructed homes on the piers to take an advantage of the views and secure extra privacy.
