De­vel­op­ments by Dale Al­cock’s tips for peo­ple with prop­erty sub­di­vi­sion plans:

• Con­sider work­ing with a builder who is not only ex­pe­ri­enced in res­i­den­tial prop­erty de­vel­op­ment, but can also han­dle ev­ery­thing in­volved in the sub­di­vi­sion process from start to fin­ish. Look for a builder who also guar­an­tees your prop­erty de­vel­op­ments will be built on time and on bud­get.

• Iden­tify early on any hid­den nasties and un­ex­pected prob­lems as­so­ci­ated with the block of land you plan to de­velop as these could end up hav­ing a ma­jor im­pact on your bud­get and the po­ten­tial for prop­erty de­vel­op­ment.The in­for­ma­tion might not change your mind about the block, but at least you will be armed with all the facts.

• Get a clear pic­ture of what is al­ready pro­vided on the block in terms of key ser­vices and whether you will need to re­lo­cate any wa­ter, power, sewer or gas in­fra­struc­ture, for ex­am­ple.

• Find out about any changes that might hap­pen in the fu­ture that could af­fect your de­vel­op­ment, such as road widen­ing, her­itage area re­quire­ments, noise im­pact and split zon­ing. You can then plan and bud­get.
