In Umina Beach NSW on “Additions To Residence Deck...” at 78 Osborne Avenue, Umina Beach NSW 2257:

It’s hard to tell from this DA if a double width driveway is part of the design.

Double width driveways really should NOT be allowed on the Peninsula. They create a permanent hard, heat trapping hard surface which is useful only for a matter of seconds and which reduces the potential for trees and/or grass to be added to improve the character of our suburbs.

Nearby in Brisbane Avenue a new build property added a “double” driveway, and to do so removed a tree planted by the community.

A single width driveway is sufficient. How often do two cars leave a garage simultaneously? Never.

Thank you.
