Site Analysis Survey

Site Analysis Surveys are used by your Architect and council for town planning purposes.  Sometimes called neighbourhood description surveys, site analysis feature surveys locate not only information on your property, but also many of your neighbouring properties.
A site analysis feature survey is generally required by Council when you are developing your property with units or townhouses. Even if you are keeping the existing house and adding another at the rear, a site analysis feature survey is generally what is required.  How many properties are required to be surveyed depend on council requirements, which differ between areas, but a site analysis survey would often require three properties either side and to the rear of your property, and five across the road.

This enables your architect and Council to fully assess the neighbourhood character by examination of the neighbouring houses.


Information located in a site analysis feature survey includes the following:

  • Levels to Australian Height Datum (AHD)
  • Contours over the site at 0.2 metre intervals
  • Easements (if any), title bearings and distances
  • On the existing house on site - floor level, ridge heights and gutter heights
  • On the existing site - garages, sheds, carports, trees, fence heights and descriptions
  • On the nature strip - street furniture including trees, footpaths, services such as pits, water, telstra and gas meters etc
  • On directly adjoining properties - setbacks, windows overlooking the site including heights, heights of ridges, gutters and floor levels where possible
  • On all other neighbouring houses - setbacks, street furniture, front fence type and height, heights of ridges, gutters and floor levels where possible
  • A benchmark is always located at the front of subject property
