In the last post I introduced my planned triplex development, I skipped over something, why specifically a triplex development?
This comes down to zoning, zoning is one part of the general council’s land use Planning Scheme, in simple terms, zoning determines the minimum land size a dwelling must reside on.
My land is zoned R20/R40, depending on what specific additional requirements are met for each.
Lets use R40, as this allows for more dwellings, to calculate the minimum land size;
1hector /40 = 10000m2/40 = 250m2
Therefore, each dwelling needs to sit on a minimum 250m2 of land.
My land is 911m2, so to determine the number of dwellings;
911/250 = 3.644 dwellings
hence a triplex development.
