With more rain and less sunshine, the winter months can be a tricky time for construction with wet and muddy sites posing plenty of challenges. Despite these conditions Stage 12 is still progressing at a good pace. Streetscapes and homesites are really taking shape now, thanks to driveways and footpaths being installed. The next steps include top soiling the nature strips (and a general clean up)! Progress is on schedule and our program anticipates that works will be completed in early September 2019. We’re expecting that Statement of Compliance will then be received during October 2019, with settlements following shortly after.
Unfortunately the wet weather has posed more of a problem in Stage 17, with drainage works slowed down by muddy conditions. Installation on the stormwater drainage is underway at present, with the installation of Melbourne Water’s drainage following on shortly after. The program of works for this Stage anticipate completion in January 2020, with Statement of Compliance forecast for February 2020. Settlements for these blocks will follow on shortly thereafter in March 2020, making early next year an exciting time for many new Delaray families.
Works in the first of our three Wetlands landscaping portions are complete and the second portion on the western site is underway. We’re anticipating the Wetlands will be complete around in the coming weeks (targetting August/September 2019) and look forward to this precinct being enjoyed by families and local wildlife alike.
Tuckers Road Intersection
Tuckers Road is set to open in the coming weeks, with all construction now complete and pending council sign off. Once done, the temporary fencing will be removed and our landscapers will be on site planting the street trees.
Earlier this month Deoro & Co. welcomed many families and friends of Delaray to their first Indian Fusion Night, which featured a delicious menu designed in conjunction with one of Delaray’s very own residents. Make sure you keep an eye on the Cafe’s menu for some of the night’s most popular dishes being added soon!
For those who have been meaning to try a fitness class (or might need a bit of motivation in the colder weather), now is the great time to try out the Club with a competition to see who can attend the most classes currently running.
Club Delaray will also be hosting the City of Casey’s next ‘Strengthening New Communities’ event from 10am to 12pm on Saturday, August 17. Pop the date in your diary and come along to meet your neighbours, enjoy free coffee and kids’ entertainment, and find out all that’s happening in your local community.
Whilst many lot owner’s homes are currently under construction, or about to commence, there are several vacant lots within the estate. We remind all purchasers that, as the Landowner, it is your responsibility to ensure that your lot is kept clean and tidy and the grass is maintained. The City of Casey distribute Fire Safety Notices and under the City of Casey Community Local Law 2/2010 it is an offence to have grass/weeds exceeding 30 cm in height. At all times throughout the year grass/weeds must be kept at a maximum length of 10cm. If your lot is currently vacant, we urge you to inspect and undertake maintenance works if required.
Our newest stages under construction are experiencing a high volume of illegal dumping. Whilst we are working hard to ensure the responsible parties are disposing of their rubbish correctly, we need your help. If you witness illegal dumping – rubbish, soil, concrete etc. – please take a photo, download the Snap, Send, Solve app and send through to Council to ensure appropriate action is taken. Alternatively, to stop dumping on your lot, you can erect temporary fencing around your lot until you are ready to build.
Villawood and the Delaray community both value the well-presented streets and open spaces that exist throughout the estate, so it is important that we work together to ensure this standard is maintained. As a Landowner it is your responsibility to ensure the maintenance of your lot and nature strip post-handover. Please ensure your builder is aware of this requirement so that damage can be avoided and/or rectified.
