t’s probably worth reminding ‘concerned residents’ that boarding house da’s are completely within the rules ....so it’s a matter of accepting it or just simply moving on.

These DA's are not complying developments. They exceed local council LEP's LEP's developed over many months with Community groups to ensure that any proposed Development fits with community expectations. We are not NIMBYs. We acknowledge that developments will and should occur. What we fight for is that developments stay within the guidelines. If the legislation declares a proposed development provide a certain number of carparking places then the DA should oblige this. If the building height for the area is 12m then the development shouldn't exceed this. Boarding houses have been included in legislation to provide low income earners with affordable housing. Profit driven developers (not social housing providers) are corrupting the intent of this legislation to make profit with no thought to what they live behind. If you use public transport or have children in school or wish to keep unrestricted parking in your area, I would ask your local member, precinct commit, councillor that only complying Developments be approved. I ask all readers to give their support in the Land & Environment court to block the non-complying boarding house development proposed for Fenton Ave Maroubra. The sooner we have gain traction in the courts the soon developers will stop proposing non complying developments
