CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • The Lot 59 (12 Lathlain Place) currently does not have a designated cross over for any on site parking. It is assumed that if a designated cross-over is to installed that it will be from Lathlain Place side of the property, or is there no site parking required for the site, in which case the existing parking in Lathlain Place and around Rayment Park will be used.

    Hi, thanks for your question, these are both actually incorrect assumptions. Parking will be required to be onsite with the preferred cross over from Howick Street.

  • How is it possible to fit 10 dwellings on a 1094 m2 block which is zoned R40? Could you provide a simple answer as I know the R codes for WA are complex.

    methanol asked over 1 year ago

    Hi, thanks for your question. In order to fit 10 dwellings on this site, the developer would need to deliver multi dwellings (apartments). To calculate how many multiple dwellings can fit on the site you use the plot ratio allowable under the specific R coding, for example the R40 zoning on this lot limits to a maximum plot ratio of 0.6. This means that you can use 60% of the total land are as building square meterage. I have shown a calculated example below:

    Total lot size = 1094m2

    Plot Ratio = 0.6

    Allowable building sqm = 1094 x 0.6 = 656 m2

    This means the average unit size for a 10 unit development would be approximately 65 m2. However, this is an indicative amount of units and if the units are larger there would be less dwellings and if they are smaller there could potentially be more. The amount of dwellings will also be subject to other R-Code requirements such as open space requirements on site, parking provisions, over-shadowing etc etc. On occasion these can limit the amount of units on a particular site to less than the maximum plot ratio allowed.


    Hope this helps.
