Subdivision or “Reconfiguration of a Lot”

Elevate helps property owners maximise and achieve the highest and best use of their property. With a thorough understanding of Council requirements from years of experience working within the local government and private practice, clients can be assured that the advice they receive comes from firsthand experience. 

Elevate can advise on your subdivision potential and Council requirements including meeting development standards such as access, provision to infrastructure, and considerations of allotment sizes. We address all issues upfront to ensure that all matters specific to your property are appropriately addressed upfront to save you time and money.

Examples of a subdivision or reconfiguring are outlined below:

  • Subdividing one lot to make two or more lots.
  • Rearranging the boundaries of a lot.
  • Dividing lots into parts by agreement (community title scheme).
  • Creating an access easement.
  • Subdividing an existing duplex or dual occupancy to create two detached freehold dwellings. 

Subdivision is code assessable in all zones within the City Plan Part 5.6 Tables of Assessment, provided the required lot sizes can be met. Code assessable means your development application will be assessed against all the applicable codes in the Gold Coast City Plan and is an anticipated outcome if consistent with the City Plan. If your proposed lot sizes are less that then stated minimum, then an impact assessment development application will need to be lodged. 

To work out the minimum lot size for your subdivision you can call Elevate to: 

1. Identify the zone your property is in.

2. Identify if your property has any overlays which impact minimum lot size i.e., Minimum lot size overlay etc.

3. Once we have the relevant property and planning information, we can advise on the requirements accordingly.  

Elevate has demonstrable experience dealing with subdivision applications and our planners always ensure that all matters specific to your property are appropriately addressed upfront to ensure Council approval.

The first step is to call or book a free consultation.
