The southern half of 2B is mid 2017 and the northern half is late 2017.
No-one should be surprised if both are delayed.

I'm pretty sure that stage 1A (the display homes), 1C and 1D are registered. 1B (the town centre) is delayed and so are all other stages including yours.

building a retaining wall?

If you are talking 150mm or less, you can probably get away with just a sleeper in the fence. I did that on one side and it cost about $100…

It reads like you have 70m² of backyard and you want to create a 50m² planter box leaving you with 10m² of concrete path and 10m² of backyard.
