Garages and Driveways

  • Garage doors must be a sectional door in a timber, timber look or Colorbond finish. Open carports will not be approved.
  • The width of the garage door opening can be no more than 40% of the width of the primary lot frontage, unless:
    • The dwelling is double storey in nature in which the
      width of the garage opening can exceed 40% of the
      primary frontage with approval by the Design Review
      Panel; or
    • The lot is irregular in nature in which case the garage
      opening cannot exceed 40% of the width of the lot as
      taken at the primary building frontage; or
    • As otherwise approved by the Design Review Panel at
      its discretion based on the architectural merit of the
      proposed dwelling.
  • Driveways must be constructed from a hard surface material such as exposed aggregate concrete, segregated brick, slate or natural stone pavers. Coloured concrete in charcoal or similar will be considered by the DRP. Plain concrete is not permitted.
  • Special consideration from the DRP will be given to permeable driveway outcomes based on material selection and architectural merit.
  • The driveway is not to exceed the width of the garage opening plus allowance for a front entry pathway.
  • Driveway widths must match back to the width of the constructed vehicle crossover at the title boundary.
  • Where garages are located on the allotment boundary, a 500mm minimum landscaped garden bed is required between the driveway and the allotment boundary.
  • Only one crossover and driveway is permissible per allotment (unless otherwise approved by the DRP and Council on corner allotments on application). Your driveway must align exactly with the crossover provided by Mirvac and must be constructed before occupation of the home.
  • Relocation of your crossover requires DRP approval. Related costs must be paid by the property owner prior to construction. Relocation is at Mirvac’s total discretion and is not always possible due to the status of the civil works program, layout of streets, street trees and underground service. Should you request to have your crossover relocated or an additional crossover installed (corner lots only), please email us at
