    My hubby and I are looking into putting a dual occ in our block in west ryde (606m2 with 15m frontage). But we just found out that Ryde council rule has changed from Oct 2014 that dual occ is only allowed in the block of more than 580m2 and with at least 20m frontage.

    So we are looking for other options.

    1. My ex-colleague told me that probably I can find a nice design that does not look like a duplex but one house. This is what she is doing in Ermington now. Ryde council may approve it.
    2. Strata subdivide my block - This is mentioned in the council website. I am currently researching pros and cons of this approach.

    If anyone has similar experience or any insight - can you please kindly let me know?
    Thanks very much! :)
