Subdivision Guide for the Moreton Bay Region

 

  • The below table specifies the minimum required lot sizes and frontages in particular areas of the Moreton Bay Region
  • Where no minimum lot size or frontage is specified, generally the density of the development is used to determine the number of lots potentially created
  • Where the subdivision specifics in the below table cannot be met, compliance with the applicable performance outcomes of the code must be demonstrated
  • It is important to note that the planning scheme does not support subdivision in the following areas:
    • Limited development zone
    • Emerging community zone – Interim precinct
    • Emerging community zone – Transition precinct (creating developable lots)
    • Caboolture West local plan where no Neighbourhood development plan is approved by Council and included in the Local plan
    • Redcliffe Kippa-Ring Local Plan Interim residential precinct
  • Where a property is already meets the minimum lot size or density in the below table, further subdivision of the property is unlikely to be supported.
  • If your property is affected by an environmental overlay, additional requirements may apply which may restrict the ability to subdivide the property.
  • You can find your property zoning and any identified overlays through the Council website or by contacting Urban Planners Queensland
