Important Information Regarding the Grantham Reconstruction Area – Development Scheme – Implementation of a Building Envelope Plan (Amended Setback Requirements)
The Grantham Reconstruction Area Development Scheme was created by the Queensland Reconstruction Authority to guide the future development of the area as part of the ‘Strengthening Grantham’ Project. In collaboration with the desired outcomes of the Scheme, Lockyer Valley Regional Council undertook a Reconfiguring of Lot and subsequent Operational Works application to establish the new lots to form the Estate. The Development Scheme stipulated that in the Local Centre Zone area and the Residential Living Zone area, the required setbacks were 6 metres for front boundary setbacks and 3 metres for side and rear boundary setbacks. In order to align the outcomes of the Scheme with that of the Queensland Development Code, Council made an application to modify the Reconfiguring of Lot Approval to include a Building Envelope Plan which shows that any development on the new lots in the designated zone are to occur in accordance with the provisions of the Queensland Development Code for property setbacks where a 6 metre front setback and 1.5 metre side and rear setbacks is required.
