In Corlette NSW on “Secondary dwelling” at 7 Corrie Pde, Corlette 2315 NSW:

Ruby Andus commented

The current house and front usage area occupy a significant part of the 550m2 property, almost 2/3. A standard lot requires 200m2 minimum, which if rezoned separate title leaves nothing for the new dwelling in way of garden and amenities. This if approved would set a dangerous precedent (across the council area) and significantly degrade the built environment. If council has vision and wishes to rebuild its depleted finances, it should maintain the values of existing properties and its rate base, and attractiveness for viable developments bringing in much needed revenue to PSC. Just because an own er "wants" something does not make it a good decision for PSC as a whole. A better proposal would be to rebuild the entire property surely and maximise it's future selling potential. To think building a secondary dwelling will secure increased resale value is highly misguided. Don't create another fiasco - like approving a 'shed' which ended up having a larger footprint than the existing dwelling.
