What is the purpose of the Design Guidelines?


In a new community, Design Guidelines help set a tone and consistency by encouraging all new homes to be of an equal standard with complimentary design features.

When homes are of an equal standard, this helps create an overall sense of cohesion in your new community, which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and aims to protect your investment long term.

In addition, well considered home and community designs can help promote a sense of safety and well being by encouraging passive surveillance measures and sustainable design helping your home to stay warm in winter and cool in summer.


The Design Guidelines form part of the Contract of Sale and are binding as par of your Certificate of Title.

The Design Guidelines should be read concurrently with:

  • Building Codes of Australia
  • Council Planning requirements
