Net Developable Area Law and Legal Definition
Net developable area refers to the total area of land available for development, not necessarily the total area of a property itself. It does not include open space, drainage land, regional roads and land used for other public facilities.
In relation to housing sites, net developable area excludes main roads, buffer zones, structural landscaping, other uses such as local shops, school sites where required, and general open space and, wherever possible, features of natural heritage interest. Net developable area includes local access roads, parking areas, footpaths and local open space such as children’s play areas and amenity space.
