Industry responds to proposed changes to Logan Auxiliary Unit Policy

The Property Council has provided feedback on the proposed changes to Logan City Council’s Auxiliary Unit Policy, raising concerns with the proposed minimum lot size requirements and new infrastructure charges.

Proposed minimum lot size restrictions of 700m2, and a minimum frontage of 18m for Auxiliary Units, has been criticised by the Property Council. Applying the proposed policy for Auxiliary Units would create a number of instances where a Dual Occupancy would be Accepted Development on a site whereas an Auxiliary Unit would be Assessable Development. The Property Council has also argued that the introduction of an infrastructure charge will only increase the costs of delivering this form of housing and affect overall housing affordability.
