                                                                   Conclusion
—     The proposed development satisfies relevant statutory requirements and where the statutory
      requirements are not explicitly met, the development is deemed to satisfy decision guidelines that
      allow for a reduction or waiver of the said requirement.
—     There are no traffic and transport grounds that should prohibit the issue of a permit.

4 Development Proposition
4.1         Use and Yield
A mixed-use development comprising retail and office is planned over two buildings on the subject site.
Specifically, the development contemplates

Office:                     12,079 sq.m; and

Retail:                     187 sq.m

4.2 Parking and Access
A multi-level car park is planned, with a total of 220 parking spaces. These spaces will be distributed as
follows:

            55 standard parking spaces at ground
            55 standard parking spaces on the mezzanine level
            107 standard parking spaces on level 1; and
            3 disabled spaces on level 1

Additionally, seven (71 motorcycle spaces are also planned on-site.

Two points of access are proposed for the parking areas, namely:

     — Victoria Crescent - Access from Victoria Crescent provides direct access to Level 1

            Unnamed Laneway / Little Nicholson Street - Access to ground level car park, and internal circulation
            internal ramps to Mezzanine and Level 1.

4.3         Bicycle Facilties
A secure bicycle storage area is planned on ground level.

A total of 180 bicycle parking spaces are proposed within the bicycle storage area comprising 56 horizontal
and 124 vertical spaces. These spaces are to be supplemented by 4 horizontal spaces located towards the
Victoria Crescent frontage.

In addition, 16 showers are proposed, and associated change and locker facilities.

Access to this secure bicycle storage area will be facilitated from Victoria Crescent.

4.4 Loading and Waste Facilities
No designated facilities are proposed for loading.

Noting the small size of the retail tenancies, deliveries are expected to be undertaken by small vans or utes.
Accordingly, loading activity will leverage existing on street parking spaces along Victoria Crescent as
required.

A private waste collection service is proposed. Waste collection is planned from the Unnamed Laneway,
adjacent the site's southern boundary.

 5 Statutory Controls
The relevant traffic and transportation Statutory Controls are:
Local Policy Framework
      — Clause 21.06 - Transport
      — Strategic Transport Statement
      — City of Yarra Council Plan
Particular Provisions
      — Clause 52.06 - Car Parking
      — Clause 52.34 - Bicycle Facilities

5.1         Clause 21.06 - Transport
Clause 21.06 of the Yarra Planning Scheme details the City of Yarra's transport related objectives and
strategies. Clause 21.06 acknowledges that the City of Yarra needs to reduce car dependence by promoting
walking, cycling and public transport use as viable and preferable alternatives.
Clause 21.06 lists four objectives as follows:
            Objective 30:              To provide safe and convenient pedestrian and bicycle environments;
            Objective 31:              To facilitate public transport usage;
            Objective 32:              To reduce the reliance on the private motor car; and
            Objective 33:              To reduce the impact of traffic.
Notably, Council acknowledges that whilst parking availability is important for many people, in Yarra,
unrestricted car use and parking is neither practical nor achievable. Accordingly, it is Council's intention that
car parking be managed to optimise its use and to encourage sustainable transport options.

5.2 City of Yarra Strategic Transport Statement
The Strategic Transport Statement is a document prepared by the City of Yarra in 2006 which addresses the
access needs of Yarra's community whilst minimising the impact of cars. The Strategic Transport Statement
has a stated vision as follows:
           To create a city which is accessible to everyone irrespective of levels of personal mobility and where
           a fulfilling life can be had without the need for a car
The Strategic Transport Statement lists seven key Strategic Transport Objectives to achieve the above vision as
follows:
1. Create a city which is a great and safe place to walk and increase the numbers of those walking in Yarra.
2. Create the most bicycle friendly city in Australia and increase the numbers of those cycling in Yarra.
3. Advocate for increased performance of public transport across Melbourne and thereby reduce the
   number of car trips and through traffic by both Yarra and non-Yarra residents.
4. Ensure that any new road construction is not in conflict with encouraging more sustainable transport use.
5. Ensure Council's response to parking demand is based on Yarra's parking hierarchy and sustainable
   transport principles.
6. Work to limit freight movement to arterial roads and freeways within Yarra and work to reduce freight
   movement through Yarra.
7. Encourage Council staff to use more sustainable transport for their travel and increase the capacity of the
   Council as a whole to respond to and initiate positive actions to further strategic transport objectives 1 to
   6.

5.3 City of Yarra Council Plan
The City of Yarra Council Plan (2017 - 20211 which is currently under draft review, proposes several objectives
for the municipality, including:
            Objective 6: City of Yarra, a place where Connectivity and travel options are environmentally
            sustainable, integrated and well-designed
To help achieve this objective, Council have listed several strategies that they wish to implement over the next
five years, including:
     — Investigate and implement effective parking management options
     — Develop and promote pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure that encourages alternate modes of
       transport, improves safety and connectedness

5.4 Clause 52.06 - Car Parking

5.4.1 Purpose

The purpose of Clause 52.06 is:
            To ensure that car parking is provided in accordance with the State Planning Policy Framework and
            Local Planning Policy Framework.
            To ensure the provision of an appropriate number of car parking spaces having regard to the
            demand likely to be generated, the activities on the land and the nature of the locality.
            To support sustainable transport alternatives to the motor car.
            To promote the efficient use of car parking spaces through the consolidation of car parking facilities.
            To ensure that car parking does not adversely affect the amenity of the locality.
            To ensure that the design and location of car parking is of a high standard, creates a safe
            environment for users and enables easy and efficient use.

5.4.2 Provision and Design Requirements

To satisfy the above purpose, Clause 52.06 of the Yarra Planning Scheme specifies requirements relating to
the provision and design of car parking as follows:

5.4.3 Design Standard for Car Parking - Clause 52.06 - 9

We have assessed the proposed car parking design and access arrangements against the requirements of
Clause 52.06-9 of the City of Yarra Planning Scheme.
Our findings are as follows:

5.4.4 Conclusion - Car Park Design

The proposed car park and accessways have been assessed and determined to have satisfied the relevant
design guidelines. Accordingly, the proposal satisfies the purpose of Clause 52.06, specifically:

     — To ensure that the design and location of car parking is of a high standard, creates a safe
        environment for users and enables easy and efficient use.

5.4.5 Car Parking Provision Requirements - Clause 52.06-5

Table 1 to Clause 52.06-05 of the Yarra Planning Scheme provides rates for various land uses. The following
rates apply to the various uses contemplated on the site:

     —      Office                      3.5 spaces to every 100 sq.m leasable floor area

     — Retal                            4 spaces to every 100 sq.m leasable floor area
Application of the above rates reveals a requirement for a total of 429 on-site parking spaces, comprising
422 spaces for office and 7 spaces for retail.

5.4.6 Proposed Provision

A total provision of 220 spaces is proposed on-site.
This provision is below the statutory requirement. The proposal therefore seeks approval to reduce the
number of parking spaces required under Clause 52.06-5.

5.4.7 Application Requirements and Decision Guidelines to Reduce Car Parking
       Requirement

An application to reduce (including reduce to zero) the number of car parking spaces required under Clause
52.06-5 must be accompanied by a Car Parking Demand Assessment.
The Car Parking Demand Assessment must assess the car parking demand likely to be generated by the

             Any other relevant consideration.
Considering the foregoing, we have undertaken the following car parking demand assessment which
outlines our expectations of likely parking demand.

5.5 Car Park Demand Assessment

5.5.1 Empirical Assessment

Office
The statutory parking provision rate of 3.5 spaces per 100 sq.m typically aligns with parking demand in
unconstrained scenarios in suburban and outer suburban areas.

In inner city locations, demand rates lower than 3.5 spaces per 100 sq.m are common place. Case studies
undertaken by IMPACT® over a 5 day period at an 11,407 sq.m office development at 40 River Boulevard,
Richmond revealed that the office had 372 spaces on site, and was generating a demand for up to 199
spaces, which equates to a rate of 1.74 spaces per 100 sq.m.

The proposed development seeks to provide car parking at a rate of approximately 1.8 spaces per 100 sq.m.
this provision rates exceeds the case study rate and is therefore expected to adequately meet the projected
demand.

Furthermore, and in support of the proposed provision rate, reference is made to Council's Local Policy
(Clause 21.06) which notes that unrestricted / unconstrained car use and parking is neither practical nor
achievable.

Accordingly, it is Council's intention that car parking be managed to optimise its use and to encourage
sustainable transport options. Considering the following factors, the proposed provision is considered
satisfactory;

     — The subject site is easily accessible via sustainable transport options such as heavy rail, light rail,
       buses and active transport such as cycling. These diverse modes will provide staff and visitors
       alternate and viable options to the motor vehicle.

     — On street car parking in the locality of the subject site is oconstrained, specifically, parking is restricted
       to short to medium term parking including 1P, 2P, 4P and 2P disabled. These restrictions preclude the
       use of on street car parking for office staff, as they typically seek all day (long term) parking
       opportunities. The constrained on-street parking conditions would therefore serve as a disincentive
       for employees to drive to work.

Mixed Use Development- 12 - 20 Victoria Crescent.            Traffic and Transport Assessment                         4 July 2018
     Abbotsford

Due to the constrained nature of on-street parking in the surrounding area, the limited availability / access to
off-street commercial car parking and the accessibility to public transport services that parking demand will
be constrained, with employees taking up sustainable transport modes to travel to and from work.

We note that a mixed-use development, located proximate to the subject site has recently been approved by
VCAT'. The mixed-use development contemplates 15,300 sq.m of office and 173 sq.m of cafe and is serviced
by 136 spaces (135 for the office + 1 for the cafe) or 0.88 spaces per 100 sqm.

We understand that both Council's engineers and the Responsible Authority did not oppose the parking
provision rate on the grounds that the site had good access to public transport and was located in an area
with constrained on street parking.

These prevailing conditions are similar to those that apply to the subject site, thus we are satisfied that a
suitable number of parking spaces are provided for the office use.

Retail
In the context of the mixed use development, the retail tenancies will draw the majority of its' customers from
walk up traffic either from the office use or neighbouring businesses. Thus, parking need only be considered
for staff.
It is typically accepted that staff demand in retail uses is generated at a rate of approximately 1 space per 100
sq.m. Accordingly, for the 187 sq.m retail use, a staff demand for 2 spaces is expected.

5.5.2 Adequacy of Proposed Provision

The proposed provision of 220 spaces (1.80 spaces per 100 sq m floor area) is considered appropriate.
By limiting the number of parking spaces on-site, whilst providing extensive bicycle facilities, the proposal
seeks to leverage existing sustainable transport options for transport to and from the subject site, thus
encouraging a mode shift towards more sustainable transport options.

This outcome aligns with the City of Yarra's transport objectives and strategies.

5.5.3 Accessible Car Parking

The site contemplates the provision of three accessible spaces on-site.
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) outlines the requirements for the provision of accessible spaces,
including the following rate for the proposed uses on-site:

          — Class 5 and Class 6:                         1 accessible car space for every 100 car parking spaces or part thereof.

The development contemplates a total of 220 parking spaces on-site, and hence the BCA requires at least
three (3) accessible car spaces on-site.
The proposed provision of three (3) spaces meets the BCA requirement as outlined above.

5.6 Conclusion - Car Parking Provision
We are satisfied that the proposed development proposition satisfies the purpose of Clause 52.06,
specifically:
          — To ensure the provision of an appropriate number of car parking spaces having regard to the
             demand likely to be generated, the activities on the land and the nature of the locality.

5.7 Clause 52.34 - Bicycle Facilities

5.7.1 Purpose

The purpose of Clause 52.34 is to encourage cycling as a mode of transport, and provide secure, accessible
and convenient bicycle parking spaces and associated shower and change facilities.

5.7.2 Provision Requirements - Clause 52.34.3

To satisfy the above purpose, Clause 52.34-3 of the City of Yarra Planning Scheme specifies the bicycle
parking provision requirements for a variety of different uses within Table 1.
Rates applicable to the proposed uses are:
Office:                   Employees:                  1 space to each 300 sq.m floor area
                          Visitors:                   1 space to each 1,000 sq.m floor area
Reid:                     Employees:                  1 space to each 300 sq.m floor area
                          Visitors:                   1 space to each 500 sq.m floor area
Based on the above, the development has a requirement for 41 employee spaces and 12 visitor spaces.

5.7.3 End of Trip Facilities: Shower / Change Rooms

Clause 52.34 requires that If 5 or more employee bicycle spaces are required, 1 shower should be provided
for the first 5 employee bicycle spaces, plus 1 to each 10 employee bicycle spaces thereafter.
Based on this rate, the development triggers a requirement for 5 shower / change room facilities.

5.7.4 Adequacy of Proposed Provision

The development plans show 180 bicyde parking spaces, on-site, including 56 horizontal spaces (3170). These
spaces are supplemented by 16 showers and designated male/female change rooms / locker areas.
This provision comfortably exceeds the statutory requirement for bicycle parking and will contribute positively
to encouraging cycling as a mode of transport to the site.

5.7.5 Design Requirements

Bicycle spaces should:

           Provide a space for a bicycle of minimum dimensions of 1.7 metres in length, 1.2 metres in height
           and 0.7 metres in width at the handlebars.
           Be located to allow a bicycle to be ridden to within 30 metres of the bicycle parking space.
           Be located to provide convenient access from surrounding bicycle routes and main building
           entrances.
           Not interfere with reasonable access to doorways, loading areas, access covers, furniture, services
           and infrastructure.
           Not cause a hazard.
           Be adequately lit during periods of use.

5.7.6 Design

The bicycle spaces are to be provided in the form vertically hanging Ned Kelly bicycle racks (or similar) and
horizontal bicycle rails which are designed to satisfy the relevant standards.

5.7.7 Conclusion - Bicycle Parking

We can conclude that bicycle parking provided as part of this development satisfies the purpose of Clause
52.34, specifically:

     — To encourage cycling as a mode of transport, and provide secure, accessible and convenient bicycle
        parking spaces.

6 Traffic Considerations
6.1          Traffic Generation
Traffic generation for office developments is a function of car parking provision and is more accurately
determined as a rate per car parking space.
IMPACr have undertaken case studies at neighbouring Office / Commercial properties located at 223
Victoria Crescent and 71 Victoria Crescent, Abbotsford. These studies were undertaken on Wednesday 20Th
September 2017 between 7:00AM and 7:00PM.
The studies revealed the following AM and PM peak rates:
223 Victoria Crescent, Abbotsford                           90 car spaces                       AM Peak: 0.47 movements per space

                                                                                                PM Peak: 0.27 movements per space

71 Victoria Crescent, Abbotsford                            127 car spaces                      AM Peak: 0.46 movements per space

                                                                                                PM Peak: 0.35 movements per space

Noting the above, we have adopted the following rates for our assessment:
     — AM Peak                                       0.5 movements per space
     — PM Peak                                       0.35 movements per space
In addition, it is generally accepted that 10% of peak traffic will be generated in the counter peak direction.
For the 220 parking space on-site, application of the above rates to the proposed parking provision yields
peak hour movements as follows:
AM Peak Period:                        110 vehide movements
     — Inbound                         109 vehicle movements
     — Outbound                        11 vehicle movements
PM Peak Period:                        77 vehide movements
     — Inbound                          8 vehicle movements
     — Outbound                         69 vehicle movements

6.2         Traffic Distribution
For the purpose of this assessment the following assumption are made:
     — Car spaces on ground and mezzanine levels (110 spaces) will be accessed from the Unnamed
       Laneway and Little Nicholson Street.
     — Car spaces on the level one parking level (110 spaces total) will be accessed from Victoria Crescent.
Based on the foregoing, the site is expected to generate traffic movements during peak periods as follows:
Lithe Nicholson Street
AM
     — Inbound                         54 vehicle movements
     — Outbound                        5 vehicle movements

     —      Inbound                     4 vehicle movements
     —      Outbound                    35 vehicle movements

The following distribution characteristics are assumed for traffic generated to and from the site:

     —      All vehicles accessing the car park via Little Nicholson Street and the Unnamed Laneway will do so
            from Mollison Street to the south.

     —      AM peak period:
               o Approximately 70% of traffic will approach Little Nicholson Street via Mollison Street from the
                   west and 30% from the east.
               o Traffic along Victoria Street will be split 66% southbound and 33% northbound.

     —      PM peak period:
               o Traffic will be split approximately 50/50 between the east and west of Little Nicholson Street
                   along Mollison Street.
               o Traffic will be split approximately 50/50 between north and south.
Figure 9 provides a visual summary of the traffic movements that are expected to be generated by the subject
site during the AM and PM peak periods.

6.3 Post Development Traffic Volumes

We understand that two neighbouring development are to be redeveloped. These sites are:
     —       20 - 30 Mollison Street, Abbotsford; and
     —       32-68 Mollison Street and 10 Victoria Crescent, Abbotsford.

From review of the traffic reports prepared in support of these application we understand that:
20 - 30 Mollison Street
            Lithe Nicholson Street will be widened to 6.1 metres between Mollison Street and its northern
            boundary. This will allow two-way vehicle flow in this section of Little Nicholson Street.

            The proposed development will generate approximately 110 vehicle movements to/from Little
            Nicholson Street (and Mollison Street) in the peak periods, split between inbound and outbound as
            follows:
                 o AM Peak:                              82 inbound and 26 outbound
                 o PM Peak:                              33 inbound and 75 outbound
32 - 68 Mollison Street and 10 Victoria Crescent
            Access to the site will be split between Victoria Crescent (for stages 2 and 3) and Little Nicholson
            Street (for stage 1). The Little Nicholson Street accessway will service approximately 106 car parking
            spaces, whilst the Victoria Crescent access point will service in the order of 250 parking spaces.

     — The proposed development is projected to generate up to 60 movements to/from Little Nicholson
        Street and 142 movements to/from Victoria Crescent during peak periods.

     — Traffic splits for each access are as follows:
              o Little Nicholson AM Peak:                       55 inbound and 5 outbound
              o Little Nicholson PM Peak:                       5 inbound and 55 outbound
              o Victoria Crescent AM Peak:                      129 inbound and 13 outbound
              o Victoria Crescent PM Peak:                      13 outbound and 129 inbound

For the purposes of this assessment:
            Existing traffic volumes along Victoria Crescent will be adopted from pneumatic tube count surveys
            undertaken in the period between 23rd August & 28th August 2017.
            These surveys revealed that Victoria Crescent carries:
                 o A weekday AM peak average of 980 vehicle movements 1320 northbound / 660

6.4 Intersection Analysis
The operation of the critical intersections was analysed using SIDRA Intersection 7. Critical outputs include:

Degree of Saturation (D.O.S) - Defined as the ratio of the volume of traffic observed making a movement
compared to the maximum capacity for that movement. These are rated as follows:

                                     D0S                                                                      Rating

                                  0.6 to 0.7                                                                 Very Good
                                  0.7 to 0.8                                                                   Good
                                  0.8 to 0.9                                                                   Fair
                                   0.9 to 1.0                                                                  Poor
                                  Above 1.0                                                                  Very Poor

95th Percentile (95%k) Queue - Defined as the maximum queue length, in metres, that can be expected in
95% of observed queue lengths in the peak hour; and

Average Delay - Defined as the delay time, in seconds, which can be expected over all vehicles making a
movement in the peak hour.

6.5 Traffic Impact
The results of analysis are summarised in Table 2, and reveal that the intersection will operate comfortably
post development, with motorists experiencing manageable delays and queues.
