2-Storey Granny Flats

Can I build a 2-Storey Granny Flat?

Generally, the answer is YES...

HOWEVER- the code stipulates that the higher the building gets, the larger the rear and side setbacks will need to be, to compensate for the increased height. Once a building exceeds 3.8m in height, then a formula applies to determine the required setbacks, as per the table below.

H= Additional Height Over the 3.8m

Additional CDC Requirements
  • No more than 1 Granny Flat premissible per lot.
    A Granny Flat is classified as a 'secondary dwelling', and there cannot be two 'secondary dwellings on one lot'.
  • There must be a 'primary dwelling' (main house) established on, or approved for, the property.
  • Must allow for a 24m2 courtyard space (in addition to the 60m2 Granny Flat), with an area minimum 4m wide.
    This is an open space, and can be placed within the property setbacks.
  • For battle-axe blocks, an access handle of at least 3m wide is required
