What to consider before commencing a Knockdown Rebuild Project

  • Planning Regulations: The very first thing you should do when considering a Knockdown Rebuild is contact your local council and find out more about your land, if there are any planning zones or overlays affecting it, and any characteristics of your land that may impact the build such as vegetation or overhead power lines.
  • Street Frontage and Setbacks Consider the size of the block and what is going to work. In most scenarios, your setbacks must match your neighbours. If you want to be further forward, you must apply for Report and Consent approval from your local council.
  • Site Assessment Easements, the slope of the land, orientation, driveway/crossover position, drainage, accessibility of your site from the street, overhead powerlines, and traffic, can all impact what designs will work on your block and buildability. You can find this information in the Plan of Subdivision of your land and our Building Consultants can help you make sense of the information.
