UDIA Victoria Award – Residential Subdivision Proudly Partnered by


This award recognises low-density residential development, primarily land subdivision. Projects may comprise single storey, double storey detached, semi-detached and/or small-lot housing with private open space. Projects would not include a comprehensive range of facilities within the development but should have established a satisfactory relationship and integration with facilities nearby. Developments should be substantially completed. Stages of a ‘Masterplanned Development’ are not eligible.

There are two awards in this category, the size of the project or stage within the project will dictate which of the following subcategories the project may enter:

  • Residential development of more than 250 lots
  • Residential development of 250 lots or fewer.

Important Information

  • Only one winner will be nominated by the judging panel to enter the UDIA National Awards Program.
  • You must hold a developer level UDIA Victoria membership to enter your project into this category.
  • It is required that your project must be substantially developed by the time of judging or at least a component or stage of the project is substantially developed.
  • If you have a residential component to your project, the judging panel will need to be given access to the interior of at least one dwelling.

Completion Criteria for UDIA Judging

To adequately judge an entry for the UDIA Awards for Excellence Program, entrants must provide to the Judging Panel sufficient evidence of the completion of a significant part of the project.

For example, single stage projects must show 40% of the development completed and sold or available for sale. Multistage projects must have at least one full stage completed and sold or available for sale, and other stages under development.
