    Hi All,

    I'm a newbie at property development looking for my second deal. I have a specific planning question which I hope someone may be able to help me with....

    I'm looking at a property in the Brisbane City Council area which is on two lots, post war, and greater than 800m2. It is Low Density Residential, and not within easy walking distance of a neighbourhood centre. I would like to remove/demo the existing home, split the title and build houses on each of the remaining lots. However, the block frontage is than 20m. The catch is the block is a trapezoid shape, and at about 8m back from the front, the block widens to 20m. Is it likely I'd be able to build on both of these two lots, even though at the road the frontage is less than 20m?

    Many thanks.

    Hey @Lou_K , welcome aboard.
    I'm sure there will be some people around with some decent advice.

    @Lou_K Mate I would talk to a good town planner to get expert advice.

    What is the frontage of each lot?

    I think it's more a builder issue than town planner, as the lot is already reconfigured into 2 lots, yet to title separately.

    Dixon Homes have many plans on their web site. Not saying to go with them, but going through some of the plan example might give you some ideas about the build if you're limited to not so optimal frontage.

    Your right. I missed the fact that its already on two titles.

    Many thanks RetireRich. 9m frontage approx for each lot, but this quickly widens to greater than 10m on each lot.
