    This building is of an inappropriate size for its location, and seems to be of an unusual design. As a four bedroom dwelling, all with ensuites and separate entrances, with extremely limited shared living space, the design seems to suggest use as a share house, student accommodation or short-term accommodation, rather than a regular residential build (and the design is indeed marketed as such on the builder's website). This seems out of character with the street, which had one of the lowest scores in Wanniassa on the ABS' Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage and Disadvantage.

    With a total of seven bedrooms between the two dwellings, there is inadequate parking available on-site to accommodate residents of both dwellings. One parking space has been allocated to this new dwelling, and there is no visitor parking on the provided plans. This is particularly problematic given the new build's likely use as short-term accommodation. Rylah Crescent is a narrow, tight road, and on-street parking is limited.

    The building unnecessarily encroaches the solar envelope - a smaller dwelling, more appropriate to the size of the site would not have this issue.

    I agree with everything Emma has noted above. The additional building is clearly designed to house a single person or even a couple in each of the 4 rooms each with there own ensuite. This could mean up to 8 people living in this house and 8 cars needing to be parked. ACTPLA needs to reject this application it is unacceptable!
