Most of them will talk about diversity in housing, affordability in housing etc etc
I totally agree boeman. Enough room to have a bbq and beer outside, a pet, and if you're a tradie somewhere to keep your tools.
Is the single bedroom provision active across WA or does it need to be specifically included in the local council planning schemes?
So if I have a property in say Melville council, can I use this provision (cant find any reference in their TPS)?
If the land is zoned 'Residential' in the TPS then the R-Codes will apply. The R-Codes outline the requirements for single bedroom dwellings.
The R-Codes require that the development "responds to a demand for single bedroom accommodation in the locality which is recognised in the local planning framework."
Alot of the councils specifically allow them in their planning scheme text but there are a couple, Melville for instance which doesnt. So does that mean Melville doesnt allow?
That is a "Design principle", which only applies if you can't meet the "Deemed-to-comply" requirements.
A 1 bedder with a garage (fairly common in Brisbane - but as apartments) is possibly more appealing for some than a 2 bedder with just a parking space. The garage can be used for storage (like the second bedroom) while guests can be accommodated on a sofa bed in the lounge.
It is desirable for the 1 bedder to have some space for a computer nook, study area or similar. This would likely make its build cost similar if not more than a 2 bedder without garage.
