As you would know if you have looked at the majority of the previous DAs for the area for similar developments, developers apply for a variety of waivers from local council by laws (and NSW planning laws) to fit a development of this size on a small block like this. These include setbacks, so they can build closer to the boundary, vegetation plans, impacts (particularly shading or visual impacts to neighbour), and traffic plans (the use of one hour of traffic data from 2018 to justify a 2020 development is currently being examined), everyone else has to abide by the rules, why not developers who are taking the money and running, not caring about the impact to the community. Historically the council just says yes and ignore the by-laws without considering the impact on others, hopefully for once they will listen to the “council shareholders” as the current council administrator likes to call the rates payers.
