    Toongabbie - Getting upgrades to the train station, area lifiting up

    its a rubbish area compared to wentworthville/westmead, Wouldnt say its a rubbish area comparative to sydney in a whole.

    Qld State Govt approves New Logan Planning Scheme. Start in May

    So if an ancillary unit has no laundry then only one covered and one uncovered car space would be required and it could be rented by unrelated party. Id just have the wachine machine hooked up in the kitchen or bathroom (not formally) as with 70m2 putting a a full laundry would be pushing it

    Duplex Min Requirement - Sydney

    most likely it was done through CDC and that the existing block was sitting on 2 lots. Not sure how it happened but it is quiet common in the area. Very unlikely but it could also be Council discretion ( but 12.2 and 400m2 on r2 is insane) I had Holroyd council accept 14.63 width recently
