An application for nomination of road frontage is a request to have the major street on a corner block identified for construction purposes. The prescribed relaxation, pending on the width of corner sites applies to the major street under the Planning Regulation 2017 and Queensland Development Code MP1.1, MP 1.2 or MP 1.3.
Nomination of road frontage is not a siting discretion approval which may still be required if the structure is to be constructed closer than the nominated prescribed setback/s after the nomination of road frontage.
