I am not sure if that can be true, ours was done 3 mnths ago( not sure how) but it came back 10k plus. So i assume, it should have increased more.

The most amazing thing if you read through this thread is we were told to tick all the boxes, compliance to registration, it takes around 2 to 3 months.
South Siding took 8 days.

Fences were still locked but the fence company still took them down. Drive down Pioneer way and straight into stage two now,
Could someone also call the council and tell then to fix the street signs. Half of them are not stable because they were not fitted in the ground well.

It was the same with us. I tried to pay over the phone however the details were not registered in the system. Did they mention anything in regards to when it would become available. I remember TIng Ting had mentioned that he was able to pay the amount at the office.
Any ideas why this may be the case? Anyone else having the same issue?

I paid close to a month ago at the council office. At that timeI gave them my lot number and street/house number. I think it may be a problem now because the plan is registered and transfer of land in process until settlement. So maybe after settlement date people should be OK to pay.

I drove by today, there was someone doing a soil test I think on LOT 257.
The footpath that goes alongside the train tracks reaches all the way to station street, and then you can just cross the road to reach the station, so from the edge of the stage 2 blocks, the walking distance to the train station is less than 750 meters, which is fantastic.
I also went to check the land prices at the Arcadia estate, which sits on the other side of the train tracks and has very similar distances to the train station and future town centre. They are releasing stage 15 in September, and land prices will be 330k for a 448sq.m. block, 310k for a 400sq.m. block and 275k for a 350sq.m. block. Meaning the prices have gone up by around 30% (at least based on what my land price was when I bought).
We spent some time outside the Officer Club, which I've never been before, and the area looks amazing with the lake and the wooden bridges etc. The kids had great fun running around.
