TLPI 01/13 Protection of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911

On 8 May 2013, Temporary Local Planning Instrument 01/13: Protection of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911 (TLPI 01/13) came into effect.
TLPI 01/13 provides for the assessment of the removal or demolition of any residential building constructed prior to 1911 that exists within the Demolition Control Precinct and Demolition Control Precinct (Local Character Significance), as well as those buildings identified by TLPI 01/13 as being residential buildings constructed prior to 1911.
Under TLPI 01/13, residential buildings constructed prior to 1911 can only be demolished if they are found to be structurally unsound. However, it is important to note that this TLPI will not apply to residential buildings on land where a current approval applies that permits the demolition of residential building(s) to which this TLPI would otherwise apply.
TLPI 01/13 will be in place for 12 months. During that time Council’s draft new City Plan, which will further refine Council’s approach to protecting the city’s traditional building character, will be prepared and finalised.

The purpose of this TLPI is to provide for the assessment of the removal or demolition of any residential building constructed prior to 1911.  The purpose of this instrument will be achieved through the following overall outcomes: 
Development ensures that residential buildings constructed prior to 1911 are protected and retained. 
Development ensures that the removal or demolition of residential buildings constructed prior to 1911 only occurs where they are structurally unsound and not capable of being made structurally sound.

This TLPI applies to assessing building work involving the removal or demolition of a residential building constructed prior to 1911.  This TLPI applies to: 

Residential buildings existing on those lots identified in ‘Appendix A: Schedule of Residential Buildings Constructed Prior to 1911’ on the date of commencement of this TLPI; and 
Residential buildings constructed prior to 1911 on those lots contained within the Demolition Control Precinct and Demolition Control Precinct (Local Character Significance) as identified on Planning Scheme Map 3 of 3, Brisbane City Plan 2000.  

This TLPI does not apply to minor demolition work as defined in Brisbane City Plan 2000 and which is exempt development under Chapter 3 of the Brisbane City Plan 2000.   

This TLPI does not apply to residential buildings on land to which a current approval applies which by the nature of such approval permits the demolition of residential building/s to which this TLPI would otherwise apply. The term “residential buildings constructed prior to 1911” is defined in Section 5 of the TLPI.
