Material Change of Use - 21 x Dwelling and Auxiliary Unit
Another so called planed development that is reminiscent of the old housing commission estates of the 1950's that created untold problems with housing and acquired a bad name - they were referred to as ghetto's of the 50’s - at least the these had a land area of over 700 sq mtrs with only a modest 3 bedroom home on them and very few cars parked on roads
These proposed Dwelling and Auxiliary Units each have a land area of 400sq mtrs with a 4 bedroom house and a 1 bedroom unit tacked on to it and all crammed on to the 400 sq mtrs
The 4 bedroom house usually has 5 people residing in it and on the 1 bedroom side they close the garage and voila they now have a 2 bedroom unit to rent
MOST OF THESE DWELLING AND ANCILLARY UNITS ARE SOLD TO ABSENTEE LANDLORD'S AS A SO CALLED INVESTMENT
I have a similar estate near our home - its an eyesore / disgrace and of a night with people wander the streets. As most if not all of the property's garage doors closed and as they are mostly used as extra bedrooms then footpaths are flooded with cars - somewhere between 3 to 5 cars per residence –
At night and weekend I have to weave though this forest of metal monstrosities just to drive down the road
so IF 21 of these are approved there will be somewhere between 60 to 100 vehicles parked in front yards / on footpaths and a few on the road - imagine the chaos of a morning when they mostly evacuate the estate via Radcliff Court entering a narrow section of Jones Road on a curve adjacent to the Dip called Jimmy's Gully near the new Bellbird Park High School
