COMPLYING MEDIUM-DENSITY HOUSING CODE FOR “TENEMENTS” …
PLEASE CONSIDER CHALLENGING MPs and political parties!
BECAUSE as we have seen the NSW LNP and their developer mates have “raised the stakes” and there is nothing to stop them doing so again and again EXCEPT the community … even if your Electorate is not included … in Part 1, will it remain safe? How likely is that? Based on the “track record of the LNP?”
Further, the Low Rise Medium Density Design Guide (link):
Where is the protection for existing solar installations?

2.3H Solar and Daylight Access
IN 2.3H-1 OBJECTIVE DESIGN CRITERIA
NOTE: the wording – “living room OR private open space”
To provide good access to daylight suited to the
function of the room, minimise reliance on artificial
lighting and improve amenity.

“DESIRED FUTURE CHARACTER” through consultation with the community.
How does this work when development is ‘complying’ and is not subject to ‘consultation?’.
It is decided by a certifier! Whole areas could be subject to change without community input.
So, will developers and/or certifiers decide on these ‘site considerations’???????
4.1 Site Considerations
Allow for housing diversity When working in both existing and new greenfield areas, it is important that dwelling types are not grouped together in one location but ‘salt and peppered’ in a variety of locations. The term ‘salt and pepper’ refers to development which incorporates a number of housing types and sizes. It will provide a better outcome for housing diversity, provides interest and variety in housing forms and can respond to existing subdivision patterns.
CAAN: SO they say! As our estates are being redeveloped with that which is totally out of character, over-sized, dominant … and ugly!
