Dual Occupancy or Secondary Dwelling
The Fraser Coast Planning Scheme 2014 supports the development of a diverse range of housing types, sizes and forms to facilitate housing choice for all residents. Dual occupancies and dwelling houses with secondary dwellings are two such choices.
A new fact sheet is available to explain the key differences between a “Dual occupancy” and a “Secondary dwelling” in the Fraser Coast region.
Further information is available by phone 1300 79 49 29 or in person at the Hervey Bay or Maryborough Customer Service Centres.
