    what is the approximate price range for a residential block of land?

    hoangdekiem asked over 1 year ago

    The Draft Development Scheme, which is currently out for public notification, is some way off being finalised / approved. The proposed master plan for the Oxley PDA is also some way off being finalised. Once the Development Scheme is finalised / approved and the master plan is finalised later in 2019, EDQ will be in a position to provide an indication of pricing for residential blocks.

    Hi, Will the entrance into the new development be directly from the main Seventeen Mile Rocks Rd or through the Service Road. I hope it is not going to be from the Service Rd as there is already a setback for those houses for many years from the green park area there and any changes to this would is a significant change to residents in those houses and will not be well received. The development should aim at having no impact to those houses and therefore entry should either be from somewhere else or directly from the main Seventeen Mile Rocks Rd. Please provide some advice on this at your earliest convenience as any adverse decision on this will be very concerning. Thank you.

    Zak asked over 1 year ago

    The proposed development scheme states the existing formal school access at Seventeen Miles Rocks Road is the primary access point. A secondary access point off Cliveden Avenue is predominantly only for essential vehicles, for example emergency services vehicles (refer to section 2.5.4 dot point 9) and will also maintain access to the existing Yuingi C&K childcare centre. These primary and secondary access points are shown on Map 2 structural elements plan.

    Future development proposals will need to meet the criteria in the proposed development scheme, particularly PDA-wide criteria 2.5.4 Street and Movement Network which states that development delivers a high-quality street and movement network to ‘ensure the safe and efficient operation of the road and active transport network outside of the PDA, including Seventeen Mile Rocks Road (including service road), Blackheath Road and Cliveden Avenue, is not adversely impacted’.

    The proposed development scheme is currently on public notification. Find out more about how you can have your say on the proposed development scheme here..

    How do I register my interest in purchasing one of the proposed residential blocks?

    Gerry Danby asked almost 2 years ago

    A portal to register your interest for purchasing a block within the Oxley PDA is not yet available. EDQ expect this opportunity to become available later this year and will be in touch with the community to provide information on how to register your interest.

    Will the public be able to buy a residential lot in the Oxley PDA? If so; what is the expected process (e.g tender, auction, set price)?

    reynep asked about 2 years ago

    Yes there will be residential lots available for sale in the Oxley PDA following public consultation of the development scheme and subsequent master plan development application. Timing is subject to these approvals but could be expected from late 2020. The selling method is yet to be determined.

    My mother's property adjoins the southern boundary of this facility. The sports ovals were flooded during the 1974 floods up to the cross bars on the football goal posts, and the dark green shaded areas are essentially unable to be built on due to the hillside being unstable and slip prone. What protections will be put in place to ensure that development earthworks for housing below this area don't undermine the stability of this area and result in slippage of the hillside and potential damage to properties above that area? What size are the proposed residential blocks? Also what will be done to avoid issues with traffic flow at the single entry/exit point onto 17 Mile Rocks Rd? There are already difficulties in property access at peak hour.

    Rod asked about 2 years ago

    The Oxley PDA Interim Land Use Plan (ILUP) prohibits residential development from occurring within Precinct 1 – Environmental protection (dark green) and Precinct – 2 Open space and recreation (light green). Residential development within Precinct 3 – neighbourhood (pink) will achieve an average lot size of 800m2. A development application over the site will need to demonstrate how development constraints and matters of community safety will be managed. This will include geotechnical investigations for landslip areas and traffic investigations for the proposed access location and impact on the external road network. These investigations will be made publicly available as part of a PDA development application.

    Why more age care when there are heaps in this area and these are hard to fill

    Jackpat asked about 2 years ago

    Aged-care is one of many possible options currently being investigated for housing our aging population. Once a determination has been made we will provide more detail.

    Will the residential component of the site be low density or medium density. What sort of yields per/ha should we expect?

    custodian1 asked over 2 years ago

    The residential lots will average 800m2 which equates to approximately 12 dwellings per nett hectare, which is low density.
