    I have not inspected this DA, but in principle I strongly support any proposal to erect an attractive single solid carport no more than 3m high over an existing residential driveway. The high probability of severe thunderstorms, and the risk of damage or injury associated with hailstorms and high winds, mean that practical carports are increasingly needed. They are especially important for an ageing population, and for families with small children.

    It would be helpful to encourage the construction of carports that provide environmental benefits, such as collecting rainwater (via gutters and downpipes feeding into an adjoining rainwater tank); mounting solar panels or other alternative energy systems; or charging electric vehicles. Making these structures DA exempt, and producing information guides, would assist consumers and encourage more uptake.
