Project home-land for NSW

genus project home

Is THIS the standard we aspire to in NSW?

NSW Department of Planning is asking us all to comment on NSW’s new Housing Code.  It’s informative that they should choose such a dreadful house and garden to illustrate their invitation.

This particular example of the genus Project Home fails on every count to add anything positive to any neighbourhood and its choice says much about the sensibility of the DoP bureaucrats who want to make it easier to build such crap.

Present:  Anthony Roberts, Tony Coote, Brigid Dowsett, Alister Sharp, Kate Russell. There was no written agenda for the meeting.

A.R.: “I’ll oppose it”
