Pioneer Football Club Scheme Amendment and Development

To prioritise fund-raising initiatives in support of Club operations around youth support programmes, rather than alcohol based revenue raising functions, the Pioneer Football Club commissioned urbanplan to expanded this initiative by leveraging a scheme amendment and development approval of Lot 5812 Stuart Highway.  This enabled the Club to achieve financial sustainability and remove itself from pursuit of government grants.  Achieving financial sustainability underpins indigenous self-determination.

The Pioneer Football Club is now pursuing progressive development of Lot 5812 commencing with expanding potential land use including a Service Station, take away food outlets and bakery in the amended classification of the land as Commercial Zone.

Proposed Development Larapinta Drive

The purpose of the dual application was to achieve approval for the change of use and a built form strata subdivision for hostel premises, having demonstrated fulfillment of the development requirements of Part 4 and those of the MR Zone in the NT Planning Scheme.

The objective of the applications, particularly the change of use referencing development and improvements, was to demonstrate to the Development Control Authority that the renovation of the built form meets requisite performance criteria and provides a quality living environment with exceptionally large community outdoor living area.

Ragonesi Road Tourism Village Development

urbanplan undertook a design critique of the planned expansion of a tourism accommodation facility on Ragonesi Road.  The purpose of the design critique was to demonstrate to the client the benefit of maintaining clusters of remnant vegetation and realigning internal access ways to envelope existing amenity and build on the sense of place adjacent the Todd River.

The design critique process involved a review of the existing stage one development and subsequent proposed staged siting and design of accommodation modules with reference to the requirements of the NT Planning Scheme.  The outcome of the critical analysis was an asymmetrical re-design of accommodation into enclaves clustered around remnant vegetation.
