urbanplannersqueensland You know all those Council rules about garages and car ports i.e. how wide/high/setback they can be? The primary purpose of these is to ensure car accomodation does not dominate the streetscape 🏡🏠🏡Nothing worse than putting time and effort into designing a new home only for the garage to stop anyone actually seeing your hard work! For those constrained sites I have been seeing an increase in ‘designer car ports and garages’, with nicer doors and lightweight finishes. This is obviously an example of what Councils are trying to avoid (although they have done quite well to get the landscaping in).
