Boarding houses (a big deal) + our new website

Hi Everyone,

You might recall that there have been 2 x DA’s for boarding houses lodged in recent months. One at 126 Victoria Rd, Gladesville (in Ryde municipality) and one at 2 Flagstaff St, Gladesville (in Hunters Hill Municipality).

Residents and commentators have expressed a number of valid concerns about these new boarding house DA’s, and one of the most obvious is that of parking. The current parking requirements are very low, and this is now the subject of public consultation by NSW Planning.

You can read more about that consultation at the link below, and we encourage you to HAVE YOUR SAY. A quick, simple submission is better than nothing.
