What’s the first step if I want to develop my block of land?

If you already have the Block of Land, the first step would be to give us a call to discuss the Development options available to you. As the Design is the most important aspect, its important to speak with a Designer as the first step in the process.

How much will it cost for plans to be drawn up?

Every Project is individually quoted based on how many hours are required for the design process. This allows a cost-effective means in designing each Project and allows flexibility in design changes throughout the process.

How long does the process take from start to finish?

Each Project will have a different timeframe dependant on the size and complexity of the Project. An average Approval process might take 4-6 months, then approx. 7-9 months to Build.

What’s the difference between Torrens title & Community title?

Torrens title blocks are typically street fronted with their own access to services (water, sewer, power) These are typically larger Detached, Semi-detached & Row Dwellings.

Community title blocks will have a shared space, typically a common Driveway. They will also share access to the stormwater & sewer which will reduce the cost when compared to Torrens title. These are typically Group and Residential Flat Dwellings.
