Its all about subdivision
The new residential planning code that was released last week has given some insights into existing planning. 40% of new housing is now provided by subdivision rather than greenfield's development. These allotments have been created by the demolition of 12,000 homes. There seems to be some attempt to raise that minimum block sizes an some areas. It also focuses on increasing tree planting and garden space as well ensuring garaging is usable (you can open the doors when you get inside the garage) and convenient. Rainwater tanks and off-sire parking will still be required. I'm yet to read the plan in full but have looked at sections of interest. What does all this mean for Unley?
