    How do you know MBRC allow Granny within 2km from station?

    Yes you can. The MBRC council site has stated explicitly:
    "Note: The secondary dwelling can be separately leased from the primary dwelling"
    Source: Secondary dwelling - MBRC Planning Scheme

    I think you might be mis-interpreting it. The way I read it is that Arana & Ferny Hills are under MBRC so GF can be rented out separately, whereas if you move 2km south to another suburb then property would fall under BCC and therefore GF cannot be rented out separately.

    Very different rules but literally only few km apart.

    Cheers,
    David

    "Top 5 Best Suburbs to Buy in Brisbane’s Outer North"

    1. Best Suburb #4 : Kallangur
      My fourth pick for great places to invest in Brisbane’s outer north would definitely be Kallangur! Kallangur’s just 26km north of the Brisbane CBD and has great access to the freeway. Whether you’re travelling south to the city and airport, or north to the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast, savvy buyers can still pick up homes for $350,000. Kallangur is just 5mins drive from Westfield North Lakes, plus you’ll also find IKEA, Costco and the North Lakes Golf Club are all just a stone’s throw away. Being an older suburb, many of the blocks in Kallangur are 607sqm+.

      With Kallangur having such close proximity to the upcoming University of the Sunshine Coast (Petrie campus), we’re finding many investors are looking to buy here now, whilst it’s still affordable. The USC Petrie campus is due to open in 2020. The new campus will offer a full range of undergraduate and postgraduate programs, and projected numbers are set to grow to 10,000 students in its first decade. All of these students, plus the teachers, professors and administrative staff will all need accommodation close to the university. Given that Kallangur is just 5mins drive from Petrie, I’d recommend crunching the numbers to invest in this great area now.

    Thanks. But I guess renting a granny will be challenging in mbrc. How big your block needs to be?

    55m2, 2 bedroom – land size over 450m2 min frontage 15m
    45m2, 2 bedroom – land size over 450m2 if frontage less than 15m

    This is the note I've had back in 2016 so not sure whether things have changed now. It doesn't seem to be that easy to work out from the council website nowadays as it depends on which zone/precinct you're in, so I would say might be quicker to give council a call and find out :oops:

    Cheers,
    David

    I'm quiet fond of MBRC as there are no restrictions on land size for duplex & dual occupancy lots (if you want to build & develop in a next generation zone). With a 25 metre frontage there is no need for an impact assessment & away you go. Stay next to the water & away from the investor belt (Morayfield etc) & I think you're in the money.
