The Housing Code sets out clear, simple planning rules for fast-tracked complying development, including for single-storey and 2-storey homes, and renovations and extensions.
Under the code, development may be carried out as complying development when its effect on neighbours is minimised.
There are development standards for:
- maximum building height
- maximum gross floor area
- minimum setbacks from roads and boundaries
- minimum landscaped area
- privacy requirements.
