The following changes will be made to Queensland Development Code MP4.1. These were deferred from 02 November 2020 to provide sufficient time for the industry.
Houses that are modelled in NatHERS software will now need to meet prescribed heating and cooling load limits as well as the minimum star rating requirement.
NatHERS software can no longer be used to complete VURB assessments and the reference building requirements have been tightened making it extremely difficult to comply with this method of assessment.
You can find the Queensland Development Code here.
All applications lodged prior to 1st March 2021 will be assessed under the current requirements.
Brisbane City Council has now published further information about changes to siting variations which can be found at: https://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/planning-and-building/do-i-need-approval/types-of-approval/building-near-the-boundary
