Mosman Mayor Carolyn Corrigan has sought an urgent meeting with the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces, the Hon Rob Stokes, MP, and local member, Felicity Wilson, to address Council’s concerns about the Low Rise Medium Density Housing Code (the Medium Density Code) which – unless a change in legislation is made – will apply in Mosman from 1 July 2019.
The State government released a Discussion Paper late last year on a proposal to expand the types of development that could be done without development consent. This development, known as complying development, would include dual occupancies and medium density housing which the Department of Planning and Environment defines as manor homes and townhouses.
The NSW Government is reviewing the State’s planning system. The Review began late last year and a Green Paper was prepared seeking feedback and comment from the public. A submission has been prepared on behalf of Mosman addressing a number of issues of particular relevance to this community.
