    Hi guys,

    I am looking into a duplex site. There is a bus stop in front of this site.
    The site is a corner block.

    Just wondering if there is anyone can let me know if this bus stop will affect my planning and building permit (DA process)?

    what is the cost do I have to expect ?

    Thank you in advance

    Hi mate,

    I don’t think the bus stop would effect the DA process, however I believe you should be more concerned with the fact that the bus stop may defer potential buyers.

    Just look at where your crossovers are going to be for the new dwellings / one that faces the bus stop. If they are already existing crossover at the front. Design your house to suit that cross over. If not you don’t have to hire a traffic consultant . But just have him review the minimum distance as required in the Australia Standards for distances from bus stop.

    For example stobie poles is 1 metre.
    Street trees is 1-2m (but can be council dependent)
    Corners. 6m from the apex of the corner.

    Max $1000-$1500 for a full report. Some advice you might be able to get for free
