Would you like something larger than a 60 square meter Granny Flat?
Did you know that you can attach various structures to your granny flat in order to make it larger than 60 square metres? There are ways to increase the limit prescribed under the ‘NSW Affordable Rental Housing SEPP’ legislation. In combination with other Complying Development policies, you can legally exploit the regulations in your favour! So you don’t have to be limited by the 60 square meter rule.
We recently built a granny flat in Western Sydney which had a 5 sq m Front Patio and a 30 sq m Rear Verandah. These were all built under the common roof. This equated to 95 square meters of floor space, and it was still approved under the fast 10-Day Approval process. The owner was so happy with our granny flat design that he has asked us to build two more in Seven Hills and Blacktown, NSW.Larger Than 60 Sq m Granny Flat
Extend Your Granny Flat!
So don’t feel limited by the 60 square metre rule. You can certainly add these ancillary structures without penalty nor delay. You can now extend your granny flat to add:
- Awnings and the like.
We can effectively increase the size of your Granny Flat to as much as 100 sq m, or even more. The additions can be built over the same roof or be attached under a separate gabled or skillion (flat) roof.
Here at Granny Flat Approvals, we are renowned for finding innovative ways to streamline the complete design, approval and build process. We do this so that our clients can capitalise on every aspect of their granny flat design.
