According to the December 2014 report ‘A PLAN FOR GROWING SYDNEY’ by NSW Government Planning and Environment, over the next 20 years the population in Sydney will grow much faster than in the last 20 years. The report* states that, “Projections indicate that Sydney will need around 664,000 additional homes over the next 20 years. New housing will be needed in greenfield locations and the established urban area. Providing housing in a variety of sizes, types and locations will be essential to meeting Sydney’s future housing need.”
To respond to these issues, the Government will introduce planning controls and work with the development industry to increase the number of homes in established urban and development areas. The government is also encouraging innovative, well-designed, smaller homes to suit lifestyles and budgets of the growing population.
For the home buyer, this means that block sizes in housing estates are increasingly becoming smaller. With smaller block sizes, it means more demand for innovative designs that don’t compromise on space. Some people won’t consider buying a block of land unless it has the space they need for their ideal home. However, there are many effective, practical and positive ways of building on a narrow block.
