Long term lurker here but finally take a bit and am going to settle on a property!
I intend to do a subdivision for this property which is under the Maroondah Council. However the block is not the regular rectangle block probably resulting in a smaller building envelope given all those setback requirement etc
Could u guys recommend any draftman/building designer that you have used and knows rules of Maroondah council well?

Congratulations on finding a property.
You have now done more than most!
Maroondah is not difficult to deal with. As with all councils they have a set of guidelines to work in.
- Local planning controls
- Victorian Planning Provisions
The difficult part, of course, in understanding these various guidelines and navigating a successful path.
Your goal is a Town Planning Permit (TPP) and they can be tricky.
Before you engage anyone to help you down this path ensure you have a plan.
By this I mean an understanding of what you want to achieve.
Good luck with the project.
