    giving everyone master rooms doesn't teach young people important life skill of getting along with everyone. (be nice to other people and they will be nice to you. you are living together after all.) will you get everyone independent internet as well?

    If not they are sharing internet. one person will spam and hog the bandwidth with torrents. still have to learn to get along with each other.

    Having independent bathroom just teaches them to be more selfish and inconsiderate.

    All subject to the LEP, various SEPPs and your council. R2 should allow b/h to be built with approval - so full assessment.

    thanks Scott.

    looks like Strathfield council is willing to approve b/h

    does anyone know what other council had boarding house approved?

    Burwood and Ashfield, I've seen one myself near the train station.
