Property Development Site Selection Tip

When looking to buy a property to develop and subdivide in Victoria, one of the most fundamental rules of site selection, is to identify a site that has its neighbours houses located close to the front fence. The residential regulations for townhouses in Victoria, known, as ResCode is a state based regulatory code, which specifically states, the minimum distance you are able to build your townhouse from the front fence boundary is the average front setback of your adjoining neighbours. For example, if one neighbor has their house at 9m from the front fence, and the other neighbor has their house located 7m from the front fence, and then your minimum front setback is 8m.

This will ensure you achieve the maximum benefit of building closer to the front and hence obtain a better design outcome with your overall development.
