Our client sought to get approval for four dwellings and construct them on a single parcel in the shortest possible timeframe whilst allowing for Torrens title subdivision of the individual lots. PDA prepared and lodged a staged multi-unit housing application and subdivision along with a dual occupancy application to enable construction of the first two dwellings to commence. The process gave Council certainty on the ultimate development outcome whist enabling the client to proceed with part of the project in a timely manner.
