Randwick City Council is seeking your feedback on a Planning Proposal to amend the minimum subdivision provisions in the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012.

Background

Earlier in 2018, Council undertook to consult with the community on minimum lot sizes and subdivision standards for residential development in the R2 Low Density Residential zone under the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012(RLEP).

Since the consultation began in March 2018, the NSW Government released its Medium Density Housing Code to take effect from 6 July 2018. These new rules are state-wide and permit new dual occupancy homes built on 450sqm or more to be subdivided. However the Code does not apply to existing and approved dual occupancy development.

On 17 April 2018, Randwick Council resolved to amend its Local Environmental Plan (LEP) to allow the subdivision of existing and approved attached dual occupancies. This means that if you have an existing attached dual occupancy (or development consent issued prior to 6 July 2018) on a lot size of 450sqm or more you may apply for strata subdivision provided certain conditions are met. Lots of 480sqm or may be eligible for Torrens title subdivision.

On 23 May 2018, Randwick Council resolved to approach the NSW Planning Minister seeking deferment of introduction of the Code in Randwick City (see related media release and letter to Minister). This deferment, if approved, would only apply to new applications from 6 July 2018 and would not impact Council's current Planning Proposal. The request is currently being considered by the Minister.
