    I currently have a property in Westmead which is a corner block and im looking to build a Granny Flat.

    I understand that the setback for a side boundary is 0.9m but does that apply for corner block where the granny flat is facing the street?

    You should have a primary street and secondary street setback requirement.

    You get to choose. Side needs to be 900, rear 3m but you choose which will be primary and secondary

    No, the front needs to basically line up with the houses either side

    Hi Declan,

    Not sure if you want to do under DA or CDC. If DA i need to know what is your local council so i can check the DCP and LEP.

    With CDC, the primary street frontage, setback is 4.5m or average distances of nearest 2 dwelling.

    Secondary street setback is 2m, side setback is 0.9m, rear setback is 3m. Limited building height is 3.8m, max FSR is 60m and min. lost size is 450m2. Hope this will help.

    Secondary street setback depends on the block size.
    <600sqm = 2m
    <900sqm = 3m
