What does Reconfiguring a lot actually mean? (ROL)

Reconfiguring a Lot One of the more obvious forms of development that are defined under the Planning Act 2016 is ‘reconfiguring a lot (ROL/RAL)’ and can involve any of the following:

  1. creating lots by subdividing another lot
  2. amalgamating 2 or more lots
  3. rearranging the boundaries of a lot by registering a plan of subdivision under the Land Act or Land Title Act
  4. dividing land into parts by agreement rendering different parts of a lot immediately available for separate disposition or separate occupation, other than by an agreement that is—
    1. a lease for a term, including renewal options, not exceeding 10 years
    2. an agreement for the exclusive use of part of the common property for a community titles scheme under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997
  5. creating an easement giving access to a lot from a constructed road

If you’re proposing a land lot subdivision, it will almost certainly result in a reconfiguration of a lot component which could be assessable under a planning scheme. A lot of people don’t realise that creating an Access Easement, such as a new driveway through someone else’s property, is actually Reconfiguring a Lot.
