Hi All, I need some help and guidance. Monash City Council is not in favour of our current plan. We have already been super conservative in our drawings and cannot really afford to lose any more space. I am definitely not open to the idea of giving up another bedroom to accommodate the garage. To give you more context, its a 890 sq m block and I am looking to build 3 townhouses - 4br, 3 bath, If you could please review and shed some light on what you think and if there are ways to get around this without losing any more land. The key issues are – The garage encroaching the rear setback only by 1 m or so. Townhouse 3 overshadowing dwelling 2/ xx street The rear setback restriction is 5m. Attached : Townplanning drawings. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Can you please guide if so? Do I stand a chance if I go to VCAT? Any townplanner reccomendations? Appreciate your help.
