In Chatswood NSW on “Subdivision of one lot into...” at 9 Centennial Avenue Chatswood NSW 2067.:

PC and M Chordia commented

We see no problems in subdividing this large parcel of land. But creating two dwellings on the smaller (Lot 2) and that too both two stories is extreme. How are they meeting the floor space ration that is suppose to be only 40% on block of this size (614 SQM). The other concern we (at 2 Jenkins Street ) have are:
1. They are proposing a driveway almost full length along our southern boundary. There is an existing 1200 log wall along this boundary. The proposed drive will be sitting just above this wall. How will a log wall take the load of the driveway and vehicles on it?
2. The second dwelling will be facing north. There is proposal to have a balcony facing north that will directly over looking into our backyard. What will happen to our privacy?
3. A 2 story house which will be sitting on the land that is already 1200mm above our yard, will make it an imposing monster every time we will put our foot in our backyard.
4. This is by far the worst proposal I have ever seen.
5. Will council guarantee our privacy, stability of our 1.2 m log wall and ensure that the floor space ration is complied with not only in technical terms but in the spirit of the planning laws?
