Multi-Million Dollar Residential Development approved by Dubbo Regional Council

The Dubbo Regional Council has granted development approval (consent) for the much anticipated ‘Lakeview Estate’. The approval provides for a secure gated residential community development located upon the existing landscaped lakes system with its own shared pool, clubhouse and barbeque area. All common areas will be manicured and paved to ensure the high quality landscaped setting of the Lakeview and the greater Southlakes Estate and their residents are maintained and respected.

The General Manager of Maas Group Properties, Mr. Steve Guy, confirmed that development approval has been given by Dubbo Regional Council on the 3rd of February 2017 for this exciting project of MAAS Group Properties and for The City of Dubbo.

Mr. Guy said, “Whilst Council had always given general support to the project, the development is large and there are many matters to consider and therefore boxes to tick before approval could be granted. This is a multi-million-dollar project for Dubbo which covers everything from site infrastructure and services to the colour of fencing, roofs and the detail of landscaped areas.”

Mr. Guy confirmed that in readiness for construction the site will now be fenced and made ready for construction to commence in the coming weeks with the first elements of construction being the installation of all essential services to each allotment so they can be registered and dwellings can be built shortly thereafter. Mr. Guy said “we continue to work with Council and other relevant consultants to make sure the services provided are built and installed to meet current standards.”

‘Lakeview’ provides for 73 homes within a secure gated estate. Mr. Guy confirmed the construction of these dwellings will be undertaken in stages and he anticipates the first homes to be occupied in September of this year and the development to be completed by mid-2018.

The Sales Team of Maas Group Properties, Bill Kelly, Maree Egan and Brenda Stevenson have considered many alternative options within Dubbo during the design phase of ‘Lakeview’ and believe this estate has some key points of difference which is its setting and future character being part of a community with modern facilities, pool and recreational areas whilst still having reasonable size private courtyards for individual entertaining, gardening, and other daily activities.

Additionally, each purchaser would own their own parcel within Lakeview with weekly fees which are more than reasonable (between $15 to $18) providing for the maintenance and management of “Lakeview.”

Mr. Guy said “3 years ago MAAS Group Properties saw a need for a new secure facility in Dubbo and at that time began detailed investigations to determine a form, character and market appraisal. Initial investigations resulted in a concept which is predominantly true to the approved ‘Lakeview’ estate being a luxurious, landscaped and affordable development, all dwellings are single storey with level open plan internal and external private living areas.”

The advertised prices are for a fixed house and land package price which includes landscaping designed by a landscape architect. The Sales Team believe the general price range of $380,000 to $495,000 caters for the majority of the market and are extremely good value.

The Sales Team confirmed that Lakeview has enjoyed good ‘off the plan’ presales and this announcement from Council of Final Development Approval and work underway will heighten the excitement and intensity of the project.

Full details are available at the MAAS Group Properties Display Home which is open 7 days and located on Azure Avenue in Southlakes Estate just a short walk from the site of Lakeview.

Mr. Guy said “Everyone at MAAS Group Properties invites all those interested parties in this development to visit the sales office to experience the quality and character of Southlakes, view the Display Home and see and feel the selected materials and finishes on offer going into “Lakeview”.
