Construction Update

Practical Completion for the Stage One internal subdivision was achieved in the middle of June, hence the actual construction activity for much of June was limited. However, we made very good gains in the administrative path to achieving Statement of Compliance, hence Settlements.

Successful negotiations with Melbourne Water have led to an agreement for the bonding of the remaining Wetland outfall works – Mullum Pty Ltd will provide a bond to guarantee the satisfactory completion of the works, and Melbourne Water will issue their consent to compliance in advance of the works being completed. This means that we have now received consent to compliance from all external authorities, subject to submission of bonds, which will be occurring imminently. The final compliance item to achieve is Manningham City Council’ s consent to compliance.

I can now say, with relative certainty, that I would expect to achieve a Statement of Compliance by the end of the month, hopefully sooner. This would mean that titles would be registered between 2-6 weeks after and – depending on timings at the Titles office – settlements 2 weeks after that.

Thanks for your continued patience, and I will be truly excited to report the achievement of Stage 1 Compliance at the next update.

Verve Projects – Project Manager
