    There are a myriad of criteria to consider before one can say I have a so many square meters block and I should be able to fit in 3 or 4 units on it. Some criteria to carefully study are not only the residential zones in Victoria but the Schedules attached to those Zones.Lot size, width of site- which comes in useful for turning circles- streetscape, backyard built forms, Council policy on backyard built forms, number of crossovers allowed by your local council, vegetation on and off site, impact on amenity of adjoining properties.
    Here an interesting case study packed with info for would be property buyers intending to subdivide in Melbourne.

    Great post @planning. In our local one of the biggest hurdles is drainage. Council are not favourable to charged systems or pump outs so need the easement through neighbouring land or slope straight to street to make it work. And bushfire overlay…don’t get me started on bushfire.

    Thanks Buyers Agent. Yes these planning schemes can cause challenges. Fortunately Melbourne has not gone as far as NSW did with OSD- my first dual occ 15 years ago went through that. I resolved through a WSUD design-instead of an extensive concrete tank under the driveway- something in vogue now.
