Planning—Molonglo (Question No 1226)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Land and Property Services, upon notice, on 18 November 2010:

Has any modelling been done on what reduction there has been to the yield of residential dwellings using the new rules to maximise solar access for Molonglo suburbs.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

In Wright and Coombs the main density control is the mandatory rules in the Coombs and Wright Concept Plan in the Territory Plan, not the Territory Plan solar provisions.

Due to the density controls in Wright and Coombs the solar access provisions have had minimal impact on the dwelling yields.

The solar access provisions have the most impact on the block and house size on East/West facing blocks, as the shadow is cast between the house and the boundary fence.

To achieve the same sized single storey house that could be built on a North/South block, the width of an East/West block must be increased. As a result the quantum of reduced yield is therefore dependent on the mix of North/South blocks and East/West blocks.

The Land Development Agency has undertaken to provide approximately equal distribution of North/South blocks and East/West blocks by area.

The provision of East/West blocks that comply with the solar access provision does have an impact on the density yield of any subdivision. In the case of Wright and Coombs the single dwelling yield is limited in accordance with the Concept Plan rules; however, the majority of the dwelling yield is achieved via high density dwellings in multi unit sites.
