In Waratah NSW on “Modification:  Change to fl...” at 16 Oxley Road Waratah, NSW:

Unfortunately I was not able to write a submission regarding this development during the required timeframe as I was a new resident and unaware of the issues I am about to discuss.

There's nothing wrong with the development. However, the strata property in which I reside, at 12 Oxley Rd, next door, has a problem with an illegal width driveway, barely wide enough for a car to fit down. Many residents have scratched their vehicles multiple times trying to use the driveway.

We would appreciate if the owners of #16 would consider, in the process of their development, lowering the height of the section of their driveway that is next to our building, to level with our driveway, so we could utilise part of it as an easement to resolve our issue.
We may even be able to raise our driveway if that is considered more appropriate, although that would result in it being above floor level in the adjoining building, which could cause a drainage problem.
