Planning Proposal - minimum site areas

Have your say on the planning proposal to change minimum site areas for dwellings, multi dwelling housing and residential flat buildings

Council has resolved to amend the Bega Valley Local Environmental Plan 2013 to align development standards for dwelling houses, multi dwelling housing and residential flat buildings with the strategic direction of Council’s adopted Residential Land Strategy.

The planning proposal to change minimum site areas for dwellings, multi dwelling housing and residential flat buildings applies to the following zones:

  • RU5 Village
  • R2 Low Density Residential
  • R3 Medium Density Residential
  • B4 Mixed Use

The outcome of the proposal will be:

  1. consideration of a single dwelling house on existing lots that are less than 550 square metres if they are connected to sewer
  2. removal of the 250 square metres per dwelling requirement for multi dwelling housing and residential flat buildings.

The planning proposal will not change existing minimum lot size subdivision controls, floor space ratio site density controls, height of buildings limits, landscaping and setback requirements, or controls relating to consideration of view sharing, overshadowing, car parking or character.  The planning proposal will not change the types of residential development that are permitted in each land use zone.
