You’re asking yourself, what is the minimum lot size for a dual occupancy?

My name is Colin Fragar from Council Approval Group.

What I’d like to do for you today is to help you to answer that question of what is the minimum lot size for a dual occupancy?
Unfortunately, there’s no one answer. It depends very much on which state you’re in which local government area you’re in, and even your exact property in terms of zoning, in terms of its lot layout.

Minimum Lot Size Advice

I have done personally for my own projects, and I’ve done 10 plus of these, I’ve done them around 1000 to 1200 square meters prior to that dual occupancy being put on it, but we have also done them for clients at 600 square meters, and even below that. So it really depends on where you’re located.

What I recommend is that you grab your copy of Your Ultimate Guide of Achieving Council Approval, which we’ve put together for people like you. Enjoy that.

Take the Next Step

But really, if you do have a site and you’re getting into specifics now because you’re starting to think about:
  • What are the planning rules?
  • What do I need to be aware of?
  • Can I even achieve it?
We’ve designed something specifically for you that is called a Preliminary Planning Assessment. What it does is analyze your site in detail to work out can we do dual occupancy,could we get a secondary dwelling or is subdivision possible? All of those sorts of questions.
