    Nice. What did they have in mind? Might have some clay issues and maybe other soil stability problems.

    Beautiful PPOR spot!! I would love to live there

    I would say it would have some 1 in 100 flood zone areas on it which can't be built upon and may affect how many blocks can be made.

    It would yield somewhere up to 9 blocks being R5.

    This is no easy subdivision - getting services in will be a challenge and cost a fortune to run them but a simple 8-9 lot division with a road down the middle with 3 on the river and 2 either side of the central road might be a goer IF all infrastructure and flood plains allow

    The R5 zoning is the big issue with the land. R5 is for rural, single house or grouped dwelling on the property, 70% of the land must be vacant.

    The location and size would be amazing for anything R10-R30.

    If your friend's friend can get it re-zoned and/or subdivided it's a gold mine.

    I love that area and thought about retiring there. Very likely clay and pretty sure that area is 1:100 yr flood zone. I took a look at the maps many years ago. May have been from Bassendean Council website. Still - I don't think it's a big deal overall for developing. Any proposed changes on zoning?

    The whole Eastern states is clay....why is this a problem? No one heard of an M or S class footing detail?

    2000 sqm lot with 'only' 30% coverage is 600sqm. How big exactly do you want a house and shed?

    This is awesome! Great subdivision and very likely to appeal to a wide range of buyers.
