Sorry guys I left my calcs on after the 50,400 for if it turned out to be a 4 unit site or a 5 unit site. Which was what it was last week until the building designer was told POS for each dwelling only had to be 11 sqm.
I've got a block of land the same size but the only town planner I've gone to so far has suggested the only way i will make money is to renovate the house currently on the block and then build 2 x 2 storey townhouses. I'm wondering how you managed to fit 7 x 2 bedroom houses on your block. Did you have to go to a couple of planners to come up with this option. Two problems we have is that the block is in an Aboriginal overlay area (I may be giving that the wrong name), which means once you have more than 3 on the block you have to get special permission, and we have a Right of way about a metre wide at the back. Do you have any suggestions?
Didn't go to a town planner. Initially I read through the development plan for the area. Looked at the requirements for the area I was in.
I then had a building designer drawn up a rough site plan.. I took this to the local council for feedback. They provided some more advice about car parking and required areas for Private open space. Learning that 2beds required only 1 carpark. And only required 11sqm of minimum POS. I had the building designer edit the original on these conditions. Which took it from 5 units up to 7 units.
The units themselves are also designed based on some townhouses being built in highly dense areas of adelaide and new developments like lights view. They are only 4m externally and 3.7m wide internally. But they have dining Galley kitchen and lounge downstairs with a toilet under the stairs. And upstairs 2 bed and separate toilet and bathroom.
What suburb is your property located in?
Right or ways usually have certain conditions like you cannot build a unremovable structure over it.
ie you could pave the area but if someone needs access your pavers come up.
The block is in Frankston, Victoria. I think the easement is for the water company and it's right at the back of the property so you'd think it would be easy to work around. I'm going to do Troy Harris's Rookie Developer day next week so hopefully i'll get lots of useful information.
