Logan Housing Study Outcomes & Amendments to the Reconfiguring a Lot Code

Following the results of the Logan Housing Study (October 2020), Logan City Council has voted to pursue the following amendments to the Planning Scheme.

According to Council, these amendments are proposed to address the number of subdivisions with lots smaller than that intended or envisioned by the community.

It is anticipated that these amendments will be formally drafted by Council this year with public consultation to follow.

1. Removal of the definition and use of average lot size from the entire planning scheme.

2. Amendments to include:

Low density residential zone – Small lot precinct

  • Increase minimum lot size from no minimum to 300m².

Low density residential zone – Suburban precinct

  • Increase minimum lot size from 350m² to 400m²;
  • Reduce the minimum frontage requirement for normal lots from 15m to 12.5m.

Low density residential zone – Village precinct

  • Reduce the minimum frontage requirement for normal lots from 18m to 15.5m and retain minimum lot size of 500m².

Rural residential zone – Park residential precinct

  • Increase minimum lot size from 4,000m² to 5,000m².

3.  In addition to the above, the following amendments are proposed to increase the diversity of lot sizes and widths for developments where 10 or more lots are created. The intent of this amendment is to provide a diverse streetscape & additional housing choices.
