When do you need a Site Analysis Survey?

If you are in the early stages of your development project, you may have been told that you need a Site Analysis Survey of your property.

Sometimes, a Site Analysis may also be called a ResCode Survey, Site Description or Site Context Plan.


What is a Site Analysis Survey?

A Site Analysis Survey is a survey that captures your property details in addition to the details of properties within a 50-metre radius of the proposed development site.

A Site Analysis Survey will capture and present the following information:

  •  Roof Information of buildings/dwellings.
  • Building/dwelling details and vehicle access points along the street.
  • Fencing types and heights.
  • Building/dwelling setback information.
  • Proximity to nearby public open space, community & recreational facilities, schools, local shops & public transport.
  • Individual house photos.

At Linear Land Surveying, we often conduct a Site Analysis Survey along side a Title Re-establishment Survey and a Feature & Level Survey.
