Hi This is the first time I am trying to subdivide so lot of questions and confusions. I am planning to subdivide a corner block in Glen Eira City Council, VIC. Here is some information about the block:- The block comes under council's Minimal Change Area policy. Size is almost 590 m2 I have spoken to council, they will allow building two dwelings. Now the questions I have: I wanted to reduce the front Setback from 7.5m to 7.0m. Where do I start and what problems I may face? I wanted to build two double story dwellings, What issues I need to be aware of? There is a 1.83m easement at the back, should I try to build some thing or better not touch it? Its a storm water and swerage pipe. What is more important while selling, a double garage or an extra room? I have spoken to a draftman to do my drawings, should I take services of planner or can I attempt dealing directly with council? Pitfals please...I am not in a hurry... Any other advice for first timers I think these are enough for this time and as I go along I will keep posting my experieces. I like this forum and have seen some good advice been posted. A good community service I think. Thank you very much for your valuable feedback.
