Building Standards; Getting It Right!
Nov 15, 2019 10:50 pm
We are planning on building an attached granny flat to our current house (550 Sqm). We went to Blacktown council and they said we needed 80 square meters of private open space for our secondary dwelling and 100 square meters of private open space for primary residence. I thought for a granny flat it was only 24 square meters?
The Affordable housing documentation states 24 square meters of private open space (https://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/vi ... 9/364/sch1)
Blacktown city council DCP says 80 square meters of private open space (https://www.blacktown.nsw.gov.au/files/ ... -areas.pdf)
Is it because we are trying to build an attached granny flat that council thinks of it as a dual occupancy/duplex ? (Even though we do not want subdivision/seperate ownership status)
Your help is much appreciated!
