Hello and welcome again to the latest edition of Highfields’ Own.
Recently there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the proposed changes to some of our roads around Highfields and in particular the proposed extension of Clarke Rd through to the New England Hwy.
To me it seems that most of the new development and higher density housing is to be on the northern side of Rees Rd.
It seems that the logical plan would be to widen and upgrade Rees Rd rather than continue Clarke Rd through to the highway.
Surely this would also be much more economical as well.
On the real estate side the local market is still the same as it has been for a while now with homes on a half to an acre still selling very well and the smaller blocks taking longer to sell.
Overall there is still a shortage of properties on the market compared to historical levels and properties in central Highfields are still in strong demand.
