DCP 2015 AMENDMENT 6 on exhibition till 3/12/2020
REVIEW OF MAXIMUM CAR PARKING RATES IN RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENTS
- Due to the high rate of car ownership in
Sutherland Shire, Council proposes to amend DCP 2015 to allow a maximum parking rate as well as a minimum rate (58% of Shire households own 2 or more cars). Amendment 6 proposes that all types of residential dwellings be allowed a maximum of 3 spaces per dwelling
with no reduction in residential floor space required for parking above the minimum rate, provided that the additional parking is accommodated in basements which do not extend beyond the building footprint or more than 1 metre above ground level. The proposal
is inconsistent with State Government parking policies which consider that additional parking can increase traffic congestion and Council's Integrated Transport Strategy which aims to reduce car use and encourage use of more sustainable foms of transport such
as walking ,cycling and public transport.
For details of reports select Strategic Planning Committee PLN016-20 15/6/2020, PLN038-20 7/9/2020,PLN047-20 12/10 2020.
- Bicycle parking in all residential flat and multi dwelling developments at the rate of one bicyle space per 10 car spaces for the first 200 spaces one per 20 spaces thereafter.
- Street trees to be planted on the side of
the street under power lines as a condition of residential flat and multi dwelling developments. Trees must be indigenous, no higher than 4 metres and selected from Council's Native Plant Selector on Council's website. Currently trees are not planted
under power lines. For details see Strategic Planning committee report PLN037-20 7/9/2020

The state government method of calculating dwelling numbers counts a boarding house as a single dwelling. The 5 boarding
houses in Miranda would only be counted as 5 dwellings, despite the large numbers of rooms and residents.
New Generation Boarding Houses are encouraged by State Government Legislation to increase affordable housing. State Environmental
Planning Policy Affordable Rental Housing 2009 overrides Council planning controlsand is supported by both major parties. The State government offers many financial and planning incentives to private developers to build Boarding Houses. Any objections should
be directed to your local State member as well as local Councillors.
THERE ARE MORE BOARDING HOUSES PLANNED FOR KIRRAWEE AS WELL AS MIRANDA

Address: 165-171 Oak Road KIRRAWEE NSW 2232
It is undesirable to have so many large boarding houses clustered close together. Under the State Government Affordable Rental Housing Policy (ARAH
SEPP 2009), boarding houses are allowed bonus floor space which potentially results in development which is bigger and bulkier than other development allowed in the zone and with adverse impacts on streetscape, amenity and compatability with other development.
Boarding houses are allowed to provide less parking than other development in the zone.
