Design and Siting Guidelines

The principal aim of the Olivine Design Guidelines is to create a coherent vision for your story to unfold. The guidelines have been designed to ensure all homes at Olivine are built to a high standard and encourage a variety of housing styles that are sympathetic to the local streetscape and neighbourhood.

The guidelines will assist in providing you with peace of mind that your investment will grow into the future, and protect you from inappropriate development within Olivine.

The guidelines are a straightforward set of controls for dwelling design that also provide flexibility in selection and choice of housing. These design guidelines are applicable to lots greater than 300m2 only. If your lot is less than 300m2, town planning permits will not be required as long as the design complies with the Small Lot Housing Code. You will still be required to obtain a building permit from a registered Building Surveyor.
