Queen City Law have uploaded two new documents to the Construction and Residential Property Library. If you are considering subdividing your property then the process below will give you an idea of what is involved and role of the surveyor. The second document explores the process of Unit titles and what is involved in the process.

The first step is for one of our surveyors to research your property to confirm what zoning you are in which will determine the Council controls that will apply when designing the
subdivision and making the application. You will need to research what Council assets are available with regard to stormwater and sewer connections. You need to be aware that most
Councils now charge development levies on top of their application fees and in some cases these can be considerable. It would pay to have a clear idea of what you will be charged
before making any application.
In order for the Local Authority to process the application may require other specialist reports to accompany the application these may include:
– Engineering design for new stormwater & sewer infrastructure.
– Engineering design for any new driveways/roads and services.
– Arboriculture report for any proposed works within the root zones of protected trees
or tree removal.
– Geotechnical Engineer’s report.
– Traffic Engineer’s report.
