Mr Fluffy blocks

There are some special provisions for developments on a Mr Fluffy block, which may impact any development application (DA).

Is your block eligible for dual occupancy or unit titling?

Some surrendered Mr Fluffy blocks allow dual occupancy and unit titling where it would be otherwise prohibited.

Not all Mr Fluffy blocks are surrendered blocks. The block must have been surrendered under the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme Buyback Program and put on the Affected Residential Premises Register.

The special provisions and development rules are explained in the Special provisions for Mr Fluffy blocks (surrendered blocks) fact sheet (PDF 116KB).
