Build in the Backyard Without Subdividing
Are you a parent looking to help your kids get into a new house? Well, we have some great news for you!

And with the option of building up to three homes on one site, this could potentially give family members ‘free’ land to then build a house.
The new density rules apply to properties in residential zones that are not subject to a qualifying matter.
