We are currently looking at a house and land package, where the house has already been designed for the lot.
However, I noticed when looking at the plan of subdivision (land still untitled) that there is a condition that lots with a width of 10m or less on the frontage are only able to have a single garage rather than a double garage.
However, the block is an irregular block, where the lot frontage is 7.36m (ie. less than 10m) but rapidly widens, where it is at least 10m on the front building line.
Has anyone had similar experience / knowledge on how this restriction would be treated? This is for Whittlesea Council in Victoria, but interested in all answers from any jurisdiction / state.

If you are seriously considering purchasing that land, then my advice is to ring the planning department of that council for clarification, or better still, go in and speak to someone in person.
