R Codes Reform required for Single Lot Medium Density Housing – Introduction of R-MD

CLE has developed and is leading the introduction of reform to the R Codes to enable single lot medium density housing in greenfield locations as of right. This reform initiative is based on the introduction of a new Code called R-MD for R30, R40 and R60 housing product to apply in greenfields location enabled via structure plans. This reform will streamline structure plan and subdivision approvals, as well as avoiding Local Area Plans (former DAPs) at subdivision clearance stage, saving significant time and cost for all in the industry. This proposal has been adopted by the UDIA as an industry position and has prompted the Department of Planning review and implement  an R Codes reform agenda in greenfields locations. The following link takes you to the joint CLE and UDIA paper summarising the initative.
