Requirements for Building Duplexes or Dual Occupancies in Waverley Council.


Do you own a 450m2 or larger block of residentially zoned land in the Waverley Council area of Bondi, Bondi Beach, Bondi Junction, North Bondi, Queens Park, Dover Heights, Waverley, Tamarama, Ben Buckler, Rose Bay, Bronte, Bronte Beach or Vaucluse? Then, it’s now easier in these locations to knockdown and rebuild a Duplex or Dual Occupancy building project on your land because a 15.0m wide site frontage is no longer a requirement for Dual Occupancy building projects in Waverley Council’s recently gazetted LEP 2012. Duplexes or Dual Occupancies are assessed now on merit and according to the general planning rules of Waverley Council. Domus Homes can assist you with great design and building expertise for your Duplex or Dual Occupancy building project.

Building New Duplex or Dual Occupancy Homes – The Advantages.

Are you a landowner, investor, downsizer or empty nester with residentially zoned land of 450m2 or more in the Waverley Council area? Here are some reasons why you should consider carrying out a knockdown rebuild into a Dual Occupancy comprising either two semis, two townhouse or a two level Dual Occupancy apartment building.

Some advantages of undertaking the development of a Duplex, Semi, Townhouse or Dual Occupancy building projects are:
