New Rules from State Government on subdivision garden area.

Date: 05/15/17 | Written by :Robert

New rules now apply when considering subdividing your block from our state government. This may hinder your hopes and options or improve them. Basically any block over 650sqm requires 35% of garden space or dirt, not including driveways. This leaves you with a footprint that you can use for building on. Thus 650sqm – 35% – driveways – minimum setbacks ➗2 to give you an idea of each dwellings footprint.
The good news is that this 35% includes your front setback which is from your front boundary to the front of your house less driveway section, this takes up a big chunk of land that in the old rules wasn’t even included.
