Okay, we’re talking about secondary dwellings in the Blue Mountains. The Blue Mountains is where I was born. It’s where our firm grew up and where Max Frager, who has 50 consecutive years experience, has spent most of his career. And if there was anybody to talk about secondary dwellings, it would be my father, Max. So I just wanted to go through a few things with you.
So my name is Colin Fragar from Council Approval Group. A secondary dwelling in the Blue Mountains is very achievable. The reason why I know it’s achievable is because I have done three of these in the Blue Mountains myself personally. These have had a variety of different floor layouts, they’ve been attached, detached, part of an existing house, or part of a new house.
Developing in the Blue MountainsThere’s a whole bunch of different things we need to be aware of in the Blue Mountains. It’s a very special place to live. Therefore, we’ve got to balance two things. One, people want to live there, so there’s demand, and also good rental return, I might add. But two is the importance of the bushfire considerations and the environmental mapping constraints, which sometimes throw a bit of a curveball at us in terms of the planning instrument.

Talk to the Experts About Secondary DwellingsIt’s really important that you book in a consult. I’d recommend you talk to one of our team. What we’ll do in that consultation is we’ll unpack what you’re trying to achieve, some of the site restraints that you may face, and then work out a clear map going forward.
My name is Colin Fragar. We look forward to talking to you then.
