Next Step: Development Application Approval!

We’ve received our DA# and I haven’t stopped looking at the Blacktown City Council Development Application Tracking site hehe… Can’t help it, just too excited! :p

Again, we wait………


Well for the last week I’ve been going between Wisdom and Stonecutter’s trying to speed up our developer approval (it was submitted on the 10th of April to the developer). We had lots of little issues – missing mailbox on our landscaping diagram, missing mailbox type, missing fencing information, driveway colors/patterns not listed. After going to and fro with the builder and developer, the developer said they had everything they required! Today I got verbal confirmation that are plans have been stamped. Finally progress!

Now the painstaking task of waiting for the council approval… hopefully their is a way to speed up the process with them. We’re really wanting to start building ASAP.


So, as of 3:30pm today, 03rd April 2009, settlement occured on our land, FINALLY!!! hahaha… and, of course, it didn’t occur without any mishaps (there’s always mishaps)… after hassling the broker and the bank for days on end, yesterday hubby got a call at 3:15 from our solicitor said that we could finally book for settlement, which was all good and dandy, BUT, at 3:30, hubby got a call from the solicitor saying that in order for us to book the settlement, we had to hand in a bank cheque… so hubby had to litterally race to the bank, he made it _just_ in the nick of time before they closed, managed to grab the bank cheque, ran to the solicitor’s office (yes, ran hehe) and managed to get it to them before COB! Oh, and another thing, they said we had to have gotten another bank cheque made to pay the solicitor fees… ugh… luckily, they said we can pay it via direct debit! *phew* anyways, that part’s all done now, and our land has settled, finally! yay! happ-y-ness! ^^;
