As population densities increase, and Councils look inward for development opportunities, townhouses, villas, and units can deliver an attractive construction option.
As an investment option too, a townhouse, villa, or unit development can be an enticing choice. Rather than building a single family home, you’re building two, three, or more properties on the one block, thereby improving your returns.
But as the number of dwellings on your property grows, so too do your Council regulations. Town house, villa, and unit developments fall under a strict code to ensure they fit in harmoniously with the surrounding neighbourhood. As such, there are strict regulations and requirements in place that your application must meet.
So it pays to take a sensible view—particularly if it’s your first time building such a development. Unless you get the right support at the start, small issues overlooked here or there throughout the process can stall your progress in the future.
CIVAC makes it easy to acquire a Development Application for your town house, villa, or unit. We work with you to ensure your building plans are designed so they meet all local rules and regulations, and manage the process to secure approval to begin construction.
Here’s how we do it.
