    Hi All
    I am a little confused. Page 58 of the R Codes shows a min site area of 350m2 for R25 mutiple dwellings. Can multiple dwellings (apartments) be built on land coded under R30 (within 800m of a train station or activity centre- 2015 amendment) and if so, what is the plot ratio?

    Plot ratio is only used for multis on R30 and above as per page 60. Page 58 Doesn't list multis from R30 onwards as its listed in the table on page 60 with their plot ratios.So site area is used for R25 and below.

    You have always been able to but it's a pretty niche idea and I really have no idea where you'd do it, unless it's maybe somewhere ritzy with low density but awesome views?. So you would need 700sqm to build 2 apartments, 1050sqm to build 3 apartments.

    Thanks everyone for the explanation. Just trying to think outside the square. Lots of sites are low R25 density on big blocks close to the city. Instead of a duplex site was thinking to build apartments . It seems i mght as well build grouped dwelligns since there is no benefit

    Have you done the numbers on single bed dwellings vs 2/3 bed dwellings?

    plot ratio is still used for R25 though - capped @ 0.5 of the required area per dwelling.

    It will still be a build-strata.

    Your approach is sound - look at Morley - won't be R25 forever. Going up means you won't be locked in come town centre re-zoning spill-over in 20 years' time.

    The only place I could kind of see it working, and I haven't done a lot of navel gazing on it, is 2 luxury apartments on a block which isn't wide enough to develop side by side but has great views or something like that.
