Question for the planners here. Can you purchase part of you neighbours land and move the boundary line legally? I have a property on a bit over 700m2 that I could potentially subdivide if I can get access to the backyard. Currently there is about 4m between my place and the neighbours, however the boundary is about 1.2m from the side of my current house. If I could purchase land from the neighbour and move the boundary over so I have 3m, a driveway could be put in to sub divide my lot and build another place at the back if that meets planning approval? (Newcastle City Council) While on this topic am I correct in saying it is 3m you need for access/driveway? Can it be done?
