Granny Flat Guide- Legislation now allows granny flats on narrower blocks

Granny Flats on Narrower Blocks

Until recently, blocks which had a Street Frontage of less than twelve metres wide (12m) were disqualified from approval under the Affordable Rental Housing SEPP. Recently a change was made (to the legislation) which now allows for fast 10-Day Approval for narrowerblocks.

What this rule means is, for example, blocks on cul-de-sacs with narrow frontages which then widen as you approach the rear boundary, are now able to have granny flats approved and built in Sydney and greater NSW!.

The actual location of the new granny flat has to be where the block is at least 12 metres wide, measured across the block, from left to right. This is great news for many of our clients, who were previously disqualified from gaining approvals.
