Mecone Submission to Victoria’s Better Apartment Draft Design Standards

vbadds Public consultation on Victoria’s Better Apartment Draft Design Standards closed on 19th September 2016. The standards have been produced by the Department of Environment, Land Water and planning (DELWP) on behalf of the Victorian Minister for Planning.

Mecone’s submission welcomes the introduction of Apartment Design Standards for Victoria, but recommends a number of refinements in terms of Building Setbacks, room depth, window locations, natural ventilation, and landscaping.

The standards will ensure that a minimum standard is met for internal amenity of future apartments that have been previously neglected, including issues such as noise transmission from lift/services cores, insufficient storage space, undersized private open space, daylight access and natural ventilation.
