first_img FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK Metricon created a special arm to help homeowners navigate council approvals for multiple occupancy homes.Mr Ryan warned not all lots were suited to dual occupancy and navigating council zoning and town planning requirements could be tedious.“There are precincts where dual occupancy is appropriate and others where it is not,” he said. “DualOcc by Metricon is designed to assist people through that journey.” Sydney and Melbourne had led the trend out, he said, particularly off extended families and investors.
