Planning is in full swing at Stage 7.
Construction machinery is brought to the site. Topsoil is stripped and works are undertaken to move the earth and level the land as much as possible. If required, clean fill (dirt) will be added to the site to raise the level of the stage or excess material removed to create an easy level building pad.
Earthworks have now created space for more construction to commence. Excavation of trenches then installation of sewer and drainage pipes are the first of the services to be delivered.
Services for your land are installed underground, including water, power (electricity), gas, and telecommunications (internet). Roads may also begin to be formed.
Subgrade works and asphalting of roads, streetlights are installed, footpaths and nature strips are created. It is now we start to see the stage and lots look more like what they did on the plans (called Plan of Subdivision) provided to you.
Every good block of land needs its finishing touches! Final street trees are planted, your lot is trimmed, topsoil spread, crossovers installed and pegs (wooden stakes) are installed to help you identify your lot.
Before we lodge your land for a title to be issued, Council undertakes a few checks to ensure the subdivision is delivered in line with the approved design plans.
Once these checks are complete, titles for the stage are lodged to identify the newly created blocks of land, where you will build your house. Once titles are received, your solicitor/finance broker is notified and will arrange for settlement within 10 working days.
Once settlement has occurred, the land is ready for your builder to build your dream home on!
