Residential 3 Zone

It’s not often I’ve seen a property fall under the Residential 3 Zoning. Almost all property I’ve seen purchased come under a Residential 1 Zoning. I came across the Residential 3 Zone in a Section 32 and wondered what the provisions were for this zoning.

The Residential 3 Zone can be described as replicating the Residential 1 Zone except that it includes provisions that limit the building height of dwellings and residential buildings to a maximum of 9 metres or 9 metres on sloping sites. The Residential 3 Zone is applied in established residential areas where introducing a standard building height is necessary to protect the neighbourhood character and amenity.
