How the retail lot yield is calculated
For unzoned and zoned englobo land a retail lot yield is calculated using existing structure plans or the density of recent nearby development.
Yields are estimates and the years of supply greenfield land partly depends on the size of lots being released with a title. If recent lots are smaller than in the past, the estimated capacity of englobo land is increased.
The rate at which greenfield land can be developed into houses can also partly depend on the characteristics of englobo lots. Large englobo lots, such as those over 10 hectares, can be easier to assemble and service. Smaller lots can provide opportunities for small to medium sized developments.
Major infill is not included in the greenfield years of supply calculation.
