Information regarding R1 General Residential Zone

8/04/2021



As part of its public consultation program for the Draft Hilltops LEP, Hilltops Council recently sent letters to the owners of land within the R1 General Residential Zone, the most common residential zone used in the towns of Boorowa, Young, Harden and Murrumburrah.
 
 
The letters noted the proposed introduction of a 700m2 minimum lot size for new developments proposed to house a single dwelling within the R1 General Residential zone.

Please note that the proposed minimum lot size requirements do not affect existing development and only apply when a landowner proposes to alter a property boundary or create a new lot. Larger lot sizes greater than 700m2 are permitted.
