Good morning everyone,
Just need your valuable opinion on 9m Truncation line passing through my 15.3X32m lot which I bought in LOGAN CITY COUNCIL. The secondary frontage of my LoT (265) faces a shared driveway. A driveway shared by 3 houses at the end of the street. As per QLD BUILDING CODE, 9m truncation code applies when a corner lot is surrounded by two roads, but it didn't mention anything if secondary frontage facing a shared driveway. Please check the attached photo for detail...
Kindly advise, since I'm an international immigrant, struggling to find the answers...
Much appreciate your response

I can't give a direct answer to your question - think you'd need to speak to a planner familiar with the queensland planning rules for that.
What I will say though, is that normally in Australia, if you see the word "code" and that code could in some way relate to public safety, then that code is what must be adhered to, no matter how unnecessary it may otherwise be in the circumstances.
