The Moreton Bay Regional Council recently removed advice on its website that a Secondary Dwelling could be separately leased following some amendments to its planning scheme.
The definition states that a Dwelling House comprises one household and may contain a Secondary Dwelling. The amendment clarifies that the Secondary Dwelling must be subordinate to the primary dwelling.
Where the proposal looks more like two separate dwellings it will be defined as a Dual Occupancy. In this case an application for a material change of use may be required and if approved, infrastructure charges will be levied.
If you would like further advice, please contact PCG.
