The council rates are based on the size/value of your land. The larger the block, the more your rates will cost.
But this includes all council services; bin service, council…

I think that's really reasonable, comparatively speaking.

They typically advise 6 to 8 weeks, but depending on your application it can take longer (or less in some cases). We submitted ours in mid September and had it…

Each tree is planted x metres apart. So it's fortunate if yours falls where it should and works with your plans. Ours unfortunately can't be replanted and we can't replace…

No, they try to place them as best as possible but they can't predict the design of the house.
Before, the council used to arrange the removal and re-planting of…

Beautiful! I'm on Ray Simpson and haven't seen any flowering trees, but I'll also likely need to remove the tree from the front of my house :(

If we're still within the 90 day period, get a post build defect warranty inspection done. It will support your situation further.

Hi Guys,
Did any of you arrange the Sydney Water approval yourself? Did you need to refer to a Water Services Coordinator?
Apparently Sydney Water doesn't own any of the mains…

Council applies inflation every year.
I believe Bardia rates is the highest in the Campbelltown region, largely due to the landscaping, footpaths and othe maintenance.
Ed Park residents are charged less, but…

Thanks! I like to pay my council bill annually, so didn't want be surprised with some crazy bill 😂 but I guess I'll just keep aside $2500 incase.

Hi Neighbours!
Can anyone tell me when you received your first council bill? I'm in stage 3.1 and we settled in June. I've called the Council multiple times asking about the…

7m frontage is a narrow block but achievable. Is it a zero lot?
I think NZ89 is referring to setback. My setback is 5.9m, frontage is 10.43m but my corner block…

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We were given a formal indication but no actual pre approval as we hadn't selected our builder. Difficult to do with a…

Thanks very much. I think I might just speak with the bank directly and bypass the broker given I have to arrange the construction loan with my current lender regardless.

I have recently submitted to council our plans for a custom build in south west Sydney. We have narrowed our builder choices down to three, having received estimates…

You have to pay. Either the builder will charge you or you have to pay it yourself during the DA process. One way or another, cost falls on you.

I'm submitting our plans to council in the next few weeks. Just got the Basix component back so almost there.
