Sub Divisions

What do I need to consider when subdividing a site?

You are encouraged to prepare sketch drawings first and consult Council before lodging a development application. At this stage the sketches will be checked against the requirements of the Development Plan and comments will be given to assist with and speed up the development assessment process. Any changes to be made can be done at the early sketch stage more easily and economically than at the final submission stage.

Here are a few factors for your consideration:

  • The setback of houses and garages from roads
  • The setbacks required from adjoining properties
  • Useable private open space
  • Covered areas and outbuildings
  • Car-parking
  • Energy efficiency design of houses
  • Stormwater disposal
  • Privacy
  • Driveway widths for rear yard development
  • Internal access roads
  • Significant trees.

A detailed information booklet is available from the Council Offices.
