Proposed amendment to parking provisions for boarding houses: ARHSEPP

Dear Minister
If the intention of boarding houses is that they fall under affordable
housing then this new parking measure will make them into unaffordable
housing.
In an ideal world it sounds good to increase the car parking from .2
to .5 but that would put it almost on the same level as an R4 site.
This would push many projects to either have larger blocks of land or
have basement with a lift, which would double the cost of
construction.
Either of two things will happen:
1. Many boarding houses will no longer be viable
2. Then rent will have to increase by between 30-50% to recover the
costs
I urge you to please reconsider this proposal that doesn't consider
real world situation and costs.
Yours sincerely.
