What are the things I need to know about building on acreage?

There are a number of considerations to run through when you are looking to build on an acreage site as opposed to an urban site or new estate. These considerations can vary from site to site, and many acreage lots available in Townsville share many similarities with standard lots.

Some acreage building considerations include:

  • What the service access is like to the lot (including water, sewerage and power)?
    If not sewered, then a Taylex system may need to be installed which carries an additional cost.
  • How far back will the home be built?
    The connection of services such as power and water may need to be significantly longer to meet the home.
  • Slab heights of the home often need to be built up by and extra 2-300mm depending on the site.
  • Long-established acreage sites may require additional site works or tree clearing.
  • Driveway access is an important consideration; Is a culvert needed? Do covenants govern the type of driveway you need to construct?
  • Do any covenants apply to the acreage block?
