    Thanks for your reply, I think the same way with the funding issue, so my plan is: 1. Get the land that I desire first, 2. Get the council approval, 3. Test the plan with many builders or see if the option of me building it is possible, if the price is too dear to build by my own funds...

    construction of a boarding house in sydney

    Yeah, I agree, will avoid underground car parking. With the set back regulation blank on boarding houses, we could take some advantage on that and make the car parking all set on the front. That's just my guess, will know when I talk to the town planner. :)
