BRISBANE Code Assessable development application

BRISBANE Code Assessable development application

Residential Zones

Subdividing requires a Code Assessable development application if your property is in one of the following zones:
  • low density residential
  • character residential
  • low-medium density residential
  • medium density residential
  • high density residential
A code assessable development application is also required if:
  • all proposed lots are 450m2 or greater with an average width of 15m or greater, and all proposed rear lots are 600m2 or greater (excluding access way), or
  • the projects entail only the subdivision of existing or approved buildings, except houses.
Subdivision (other than subdivision of existing or approved buildings) requires a Code Notifiable development application where:
  • in the Low Density Residential Zone, where not in a Demolition Control Precinct (DCP), any proposed lot is 400m² or greater but less than 450m², or with an average width or 10m or greater but less than 15m
  • in the Low Density Residential Zone, where in a DCP, any proposed lot is 450m² or greater than an average width of 10m or greater but less than 15m
  • in the Character Residential or Low-medium Density Residential Zones – any proposed lot is 400m², or with an average width of 10m or greater but less than 15m
  • in the Medium Density and High Density Residential Zones – where any resulting lot is 400m² or greater but less than 450m², or with an average width of 10m or greater but less than 15m

Subdivisions in the Residential Zones that do not fit with the above will require an Impact Assessable - Generally Inappropriate development application.
