This weeks blog takes a look at properties in cul-da-sacs or corner blocks with minimal water frontage. We quiet often get enquiries from people who have gone out and purchased a corner block on the water only to find out they can’t legally have a pontoon.
Here are some things to look out for before purchasing:
- Do the boundary angles tapper-in on the water front end
- Are there pontoons either side of the property
- Is there more than 4.5m of property width 10m from the red retaining wall
- Is there a large build up of sand in front of the property
Above is an example of a corner water front block that wouldn’t be able to obtain a pontoon approval. Below are the reasons why
- Pontoons located either side of the property actually block any water allocation area
- As you can see the blue lines cross over only 7.4m from the revetment wall, this area has a 10m quay line
- The property boundaries tapper in at each other
If you are looking to purchase a corner block we recommend getting in-touch prior and we will take a look obligation free.
