Frequently Asked Questions
What advice would you give to a first time developer?
Other advice to note…if you are planning to build on or near a boundary it is generally a good idea to undertake a boundary re-establishment, so you know exactly what you are working with in terms of land size and dimension from day dot.
I am interested in developing. What is the first step?
If you are unsure whether planning controls would allow you to subdivide or build units it would be best to contact us and we can further advise you.
Can Evolve Town Planning manage my development/subdivision from start to finish?
How long does it take to receive a planning permit from Council?
How much does is cost to subdivide?
As you can imagine the location of infrastructure and services vary between properties, and therefore, it is difficult to give an estimate of costs without first investigating the site. To assist with your project feasibility it is probably a good idea to undertake a Development Cost Estimate which Evolve Town Planning can help you with.
How long does it take to receive a new Title for my subdivision?
- Obtain Planning Permit to Subdivide land;
- Obtain Certified Plan of Subdivision; and
- Obtain Statement of Compliance.
As already mentioned, it may take up to 3 months to complete Stage 1. Stage 2 is generally completed within about 6 weeks, and Stage 3 largely depends on the availability of sub-contractors to connect services to proposed lots. A ball park estimate is therefore, anywhere from 6-12 months.
