Expanding complying development to include two storey medium density housing types

A Discussion Paper was released to provide recommendations on additional housing types that could be included as complying development in the State policy for exempt and complying development.

These housing types include dual occupancy, manor homes, townhouses and terraces.

Proposal aims:
- to establish complying development rules for townhouses, terraces, villas, dual occupancies and manor houses, similar to those already existing for single dwellings;
- to reduce approval times and costs for homeowners; and
- to deliver more housing and greater housing choice, including more sustainable housing options.
