Over the last two months, we have been finalising the electrical and stormwater designs with Ausgrid and Hunter Water with the intention of providing these reports with the detailed engineering designs for the development plan to the quantity surveyors within a few weeks. There has been an anticipated delay due to Covid-19 restrictions and work impacts for Council and external agencies, however we are almost at the end of the design process. The quantity surveyors will prepare detailed cost estimates based on the engineering designs for roads and infrastructure. From here, we will be able to determine the requirements for each lot in the paper subdivision.
We have been able to assess communication and meeting requirements under Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing practices to meet or virtually meet with landowners in the coming months. As mentioned in the last Newsletter, Council is calling landowners to discuss preferred meeting options so we can talk about the development plan, lot requirements and individual circumstances. If you haven’t received a call yet, we will continue to call throughout July. If you haven’t heard from us by Friday 31 July, please contact Council on 4921 0333 and ask for Samantha Hardie or Karen Marples, we will assist you further and ensure we have the correct contact details going forward. We will continue to give you a progress update on this process.
At this stage, the inspection program is still on hold. We will advise landowners as soon as we confirm when this will recommence. When the inspections and reports are complete, there will be a significant amount of time allowed to complete any required changes.
