Numbering of lots and sheets

Lots

All parcels of land in a deposited plan (including parcels intended to be created as public reserves and drainage reserves) shall be numbered consecutively in a sequence of numbers using up to four digits - see cl.15 Conveyancing (General) Regulation 2013.

A lot should only be separated into two (2) or more physical parts where separated by road, river or other physical feature or where it is necessary to define a complex residue following subdivision of part into other lots. Each part must be designated as such (i.e. 'Part Lot 2') together with separate dimensions and areas for each part and a total area for the lot. Alternatively, a vinculum may be used to connect the individual parts.

Note

This paragraph does not relate to parcels subject to a reserved road. All reserved roads should be shown on the plan by broken lines without reference to Part Lots or individual areas.

Parcels on the plan which are intended to be dedicated as road or road widening are usually shown as such and are not allocated lot numbers. However, lot numbers may now be allocated to road parcels, especially in those cases where the Council intends to lease part of the road. In these instances new titles will be created in the name of the road authority. A public reserve or a drainage reserve, in addition to the lot number, must be identified as such by notation within the lot (or referenced by a note on the plan).

Any parcel(s) in a plan being dedicated as a temporary road will be numbered as lot(s) in the normal manner and shall bear no additional notation to distinguish it from other lots in the plan. A parcel in a plan showing the site of a proposed county road will be similarly treated.

Lots shown in plans lodged for the purpose of proposed motorway, proposed road and residue, and proposed road widening and residue, shall be numbered consecutively, commencing with those for which new titles will be required and then continuing with those for which new titles will not be required.

Sheets

All sheets of a plan will be numbered successively (e.g. Sheet No. 2 of 4 sheets).

Where the space provided on the administration sheet (Plan form 6) is insufficient to contain all necessary signatures and seals Plan form 6A (Annexure) may also be used. All administration sheets should be numbered consecutively, commencing with sheet 1.
