Three-storey extensions and dwellings

We do a lot of three-story dwellings here and have quite a high success rate. The latest amendment to the Brisbane City Plan 2014 includes two new performance outcomes under the Dwelling House/Small Lot Code that can hugely assist in supporting three-storey dwellings/extensions:

PO3 Development has a building height that:

(a) ….. (b)….

(c) contains a 3 storey component only where necessary to enable a predominantly 2 storey dwelling to address the local circumstances of topography (refer to Figure b);

(d) may be higher than adjoining properties only to the extent required to achieve the minimum habitable floor levels required for flood immunity.
