No fuss duplex developments?
As an example, due to the shape and size of your block and depending on obtaining council permission, you may decide to build a second home behind an existing home (battle-axe) or demolish the existing house and subdivide the land.
You can then build two new homes, one on either side of the subdivided land, creating a side by side duplex development.
If you believe that a duplex development is appropriate for your block, we will consult with the local council and planning consultants on your behalf.
We will determine the current zoning policies and future changes to these policies so that you can make an informed decision.

Is a duplex suitable for your block?
The R-Codes tell you how many residences can be built on a 1 hectare block of land (10,000 square metres).
Contact our team and we will help walk you through the process.
So for example, if your block of land is designated R20, the average site area for a residence is 450 square metres with a minimum of 350 square metres.
This means that you need a block size of at least 900 square metres to build a duplex.
Here are a few more R-Codes with the minimum size block requirements to build a duplex in Perth:
- R20 = minimum block size of 900 square metres
- R24 = minimum block size of 700 square metres
- R30 = minimum block size of 600 square metres
- R40 = minimum block size of 440 square metres
As previously stated, these R-Codes are just an indication of the size duplex you could build on these blocks and other factors will need to be considered before council permission can be obtained for your block of land.
Your best strategy is to call us at Thompson Sustainable Homes and we will be able to guide you through the process of maximising the development potential for your plot of land.
