Proposed Changes to Gold Coast Residential Zoning - Have Your Say

The Gold Coast City Council has proposed a number of updates to the City Plan. This includes a 'small lot housing review' which is designed to "improve development outcomes for housing on lots less than 400 square metres".
Proposed Changes to Gold Coast residential zoning
Currently, in low density residential zones, the City Plan allows for two dwellings to be located on 800m2 lots that are
• corner lots;
• lots with dual frontage; or
• lots within close walking distance to 'designated centres'.

However, these lots could not be subdivided into two freehold lots as the minimum lot size for subdivisions in 600m2 in low density residential zones.

The proposed updates to the City Plan will change the minimum lot size for subdivisions from 600m2 to 400m2 - meaning 800m2 lots can now be completely subdivided into two freehold lots.  The same conditions will still apply though, meaning these smaller subdivisions can only take place on corner lots, lots with dual frontage or within close walking distance to designated centres in low density residential zones.

The Gold Coast City Council is accepting feedback on the proposed changed until 15th November 2017.
