Buying Land in Canberra

If you haven't selected the block of land for your new home, good!
You need to talk to us first.

Selecting land that will work with your home design, and that has optimal solar access, could save you big money when it comes to building and long term running costs. It can also have a major impact on your lifestyle and comfort.

Things you need to consider:

  • the size and shape of your home
  • the size and shape of the site
  • whether you want a single or double storey home, or even split levels
  • surrounding streetscape, homes and landscaping that may affect your block
  • erosion and sediment control
  • will the block need to be cut or filled to suit your home design
  • the land estate or suburb Lease and Development Conditions (also known as L&D's)
  • noise issues surrounding the home
  • biodiversity impacts on the site
  • trees or driveways that must be retained
  • easements or power lines that will restrict the design of your home
  • the soil classification of the site, or surrounding homes


Most importantly, what is the orientation of the site? Does the block face north, south, east or west?

This question more than any other will determine how your home will be designed, particularly if you want an energy efficient home that will be cool in summer and warm in winter, with reduced long term running costs.
