Understanding R-Codes for Land Subdivision and Building


If you are thinking about getting into property development, then one of the first subject’s you need to understand is the residential planning codes, otherwise known as the R-Codes.

Understanding what the R-Codes are and how they are calculated will help you to evaluate the development potential of your land or the land in question.

The R-Codes apply to all properties whether single storey homes (villas), two storey homes (townhouses) or multi-unit living (apartments).

They determine important design elements such as street and lot boundary setbacks, open space, building height and size, sight lines, outdoor living areas, landscaping, vehicle access and parking, solar passive design and visual privacy.
