December 2023 update

As of December 2023, Council has countersigned all Landowner Agreements associated with the Stage One works. This action was approved by Council at their Ordinary Meeting on the 11 December 2023.

As a result of this action, all Landowner Agreements have now officially commenced and the first payment notices will be issued in January 2024. Amounts to be invoiced and the frequency of Payment Notices will be as per the Payment Schedule in Schedule 2 of the agreements.

Other project developments since our last update include Council successfully renewing the expired Hunter Water approvals. The renewal has, unfortunately, required additional design works to be completed that will delay completion of the final design. These design works have commenced and we anticipate being in a position to seek quotations for the construction of Stage One works by April 2024. This should enable construction to commence by June 2024.

Summary of works completed since our last update:

  • Council countersigned and officially commenced all Landowner Agreements.
  • Expired Hunter Water approvals for Stage One works were successfully renewed.
  • Additional detailed survey and design works commenced as a result of requirements of renewed Hunter Water approvals.

Upcoming steps:

  • Copies of the fully signed and executed Landowner Agreements will be issued to each landowner.
  • The first Payment Notices will be issued to landowners in January 2024, as per Schedule 2 of the Landowner Agreements.
  • Design works to be progressed and finalised with Hunter Water (anticipated April 2024).
  • Quotations to be sought via a tender process for the Stage One construction works (anticipated May 2024).
  • Commence construction of Stage One works (anticipated June 2024).
