I am looking at a property contract that shows only the dimensions of the land in feet and inches. It doesn't say what the total area of the land is. So I calculated the area from the dimensions manually. Problem is, the area that I calculated is different from the area I see on value general website. Value general website shows total area as 600.5 sqm, however what I calculated using dimensions on contract is 598.5 sqm. That's a difference of 2 sqm. The land is a potential development land where according to LEP, detached dual occupancy is allowed provided area is not less than 600 sqm. Questions: 1. What is the source of information(for total area) the council town planner look at during DA assessment? 2. What are the chances a DA application won't get rejected for a 2sqm difference assuming all other criteria meet. Property is in NSW.
