Block wall cost

Plus engineer cost as it's very likely you'll need it for a wall that high so check with your council to see at what height they require engineering.

If you want it in the ground you have to call them and arrange. Don't wait till they show up at your door.

assistance with pre-wiring

Run everything in before insulation goes in. Think of it this way, that's how all the electrical is run so this is really no different.

No. A little concrete to the mix won't make it much harder to dig up. It will be more difficult but not much.

Home plan needed...

My first place had 2m of fall over the building envelope and yours seems close. If you think about it, that's prob too much for a true split level.

Do you have a site plan that shows elevations? You need to know how much fall there is within where you want to place the house.
