Dual Occupancy - Side By Side Attached (Duplex)

DUAL OCCUPANCY - ATTACHED SIDE BY SIDE (DUPLEX)

Dual Occupancy - Side By Side (Attached): These are Duplexes. Please see our Duplexes page for full compliance requirements HERE

A duplex is a home that is attached to another home, sharing a common wall in a semi-detached style. Both face the street and can be either single or double storey.

They can be designed to be identical in layout and style, or varied to create individuality.

This style of building is most suitable to blocks that a both wider and deeper. An ideal lot width is 15 metres, which will allow for a single car garage facing the street. If your block is only 12 metres wide and has a rear laneway, then garaging can be located in the rear; resulting in a wider building. If a double garage is required, then a block width of 25 metres is ideal.

DUAL OCCUPANCY SIDE BY SIDE DETACHED

Each dwelling must face a public road. The dwellings must be located at least 3 metres from each other. Each must have a minimum width of 5m measured at the building line.  Compliance requirements are the same as Duplexes. Please see our Duplexes page for further information HERE
