Many traditional large-lot communities rely on septic for their sewer systems and ugly crossovers for entry to homesites. This has many implications on how you are able use, and importantly, build on your block of land, how effectively water drains away and also, it has a major impact on the whole character and aesthetic of the community.
At The Orchard, we are proud to say that the entire community is fully serviced including town connected sewer and water, curb and channeling, underground power, regular setbacks including being NBN ready.
This type of clever urban design on large-lots not only creates a feeling of master planning and connectedness; it adds real value to your home and land.
Take a look at some of the tangible benefits having a fully-serviced homesite provides…
Advantages of town connected sewer over a septic system:
Significantly reduced capital costs with no septic system required
Wastewater issues avoided as ALL home sites within The Orchard community are connected to the system
Reduced ongoing operating costs with;
No quarterly servicing required
No pumping required
No septic system installation required meaning you can use your entire block without having to included absorption trenches, build your home higher off the ground or worry about where you plant trees and so on. A town-connected system adds approximately $25,000 to the value of your land.
Advantages of curb and channel over using crossovers:
Absolute flexibly and freedom with location of your driveway and your secondary driveway access (shed).
Improve storm water runoff treatment by directing it into storm water drains more effectively – water isn’t laying around in the gullies that are required for crossovers
Improves the aesthetics of the whole community, easier to mow and maintain adding significant value to homes
Separates the road from the roadside discouraging drivers parking or driving on sidewalks
Provides structural support to the road edge and improves driver and pedestrian safety
All you have to construct is your own driveway ie. You don’t have to pay for an expensive crossover just to access your homesite
Homesites that do not have curb and channel and only have open drains i.e rural residential land will cost $20,000 – $25,000 for direct access to your home from the street
Advantages of The Orchard setbacks:
A setback is a council requirement and the distance in which you have to build your home back from the boundary of your homesite. The installation of septic tanks and crossovers may have an impact on the setback of your property.
All lots at The Orchard are fully serviced meaning setbacks are at the standard six metres which allows you to have a larger building envelope to utilise which will give you much more space to build your home, garage, shed or/and pool.
Advantages of underground power:
Lower transmission losses
Can better absorb emergency power loads
Lower maintenance costs
Emit no electric field
Require less land to install
Less susceptible to the impacts of sever weather like cyclones and storms

This access information includes – inter alia – the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned, and the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed.

You may have the right to obtain a copy of the personal data undergoing processing free of charge. For further copies requested by you, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs.
(b) Rectification. As provided by applicable data protection law, you have the right to have incomplete or inaccurate personal information that we process about you rectified.
(c) Deletion. As provided by applicable data protection law, you have the right to request that we delete personal information that we process about you, except we are not obliged to do so if we need to retain such data in order to comply with a legal obligation or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or if other statutory restrictions apply.
(d) Restriction. Depending on the circumstances and as provided by applicable data protection law, you have the right to restrict our processing of your personal information where you believe such data to be inaccurate; our processing is unlawful; or that we no longer need to process such data for a particular purpose or where other legal grounds to request restriction apply unless we are not able to delete the data due to a legal or other obligation or because you do not wish for us to delete it or because other statutory restrictions apply.
(e) Portability. Depending on the circumstances and as provided by applicable data protection law, you have the right to obtain personal information we hold about you, in a structured, electronic format, and to transmit such data to you or another data controller, where this is (i) personal information which you have provided to us, and (ii) if we are processing that data on the basis of your consent or to perform a contract with you.

(g) Withdrawing Consent. If you have consented to our processing of your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, free of charge. Such a withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing prior to the consent withdrawal. You can withdraw your consent by sending your request to the Privacy Officer.
