Growth, 2 homes become 3, NOT 30, to get the job done.

While reviewing the Draft Residential Strategy, I came across something I expect you found too…even though the target growth numbers have gone up, there is some good news.

 The good news is that the targeted growth, in existing DD08 areas, can still be TOTALLY achieved by one in four sites developed into three residences.

 Or to put it simply: 4 homes become 6, across D008 targeted higher density zones, & the Job is done !

So we still won’t need any high rises in side streets like Curlew Court. And we still have 19 years to do it.

I thought you would all be relieved knowing that we won’t need insane efforts to achieve the growth.

Imagine instead of the planned high rise 30 apartments in a small Court, we could do our share as follows:

 Develop 1 in 6 of the original homes, into 3 town houses. Or

Develop every second of the original homes, into two homes.

Thinking about it, thirty apartments on two blocks means there is the development share covered for a further 54 blocks !

– Will council encourage them to lay off the adjacent 54 blocks ? [ Think sustainability ]

From Pg 7 of 23 of the manningham draft Residential strategy.

DD08 Residences in 2010 is 6000, by 2030 is to be 9000 = 3000 new residences

Allowing 3 residences per site (increase of 2,) which equates to 1500 sites of the existing 6000, or 25%

 Certainly not the 1,500% being encouraged at present…
