Maintaining appealing streetscapes is essential at The Patch, even during the construction phase. We ask that you consider the following information and ensure your builder is also aware of these expectations so that The Patch always presents well and is welcoming to its visitors.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
A. Lot Maintenance
While waiting for construction to commence on your land lot, you must not allow any rubbish including site excavations and building materials to accumulate. Please maintain the lot to avoid excessive growth of grass or weeds.
The purchaser shall not place any rubbish including site excavations and building materials on adjoining land, reserves or any waterways.
Please ensure your building site is always clean and safe. Your builder should provide a secure enclosure to contain rubbish for the duration of your construction period. Bins and site facilities should not impede on neighbouring properties, roads, footpaths, or public spaces.
C. Council Assets
Please ensure the council land directly surrounding your lot is not damaged during your home construction.
The road and verge in front of your lot including the concrete footpath, and services such as water meters, telecommunication boxes and electrical pillars are assets owned by the City of Whittlesea or service authorities.
These assets cannot be altered without the correct approval from Council or the relevant service authority. Council inspects these assets at the completion of construction, when assessing the Certificate of Occupancy to ensure no damage or alteration has occurred.
It is the responsibility of the landowner to ensure that any required asset protection permits are obtained prior to the commencement of building works.
Please also protect any street trees, nature strips and kerbs during the building works.
