The Environmental Protection (Noise) Regulations 1997 states that noisy construction activities are to be carried out between 7am and 7pm Monday to Saturday only. For more details please see link to act below.
Please see the below document from Australia post outlining letterbox specifications.
The City of Kwinana requires a security bond to be paid to cover any damage to the kerb or foot path during your construction stage. Your builder will most likely pay this directly to the council on your behalf. You will need to check with your builder whether you will receive the deposit back as some builders cover the security deposit themselves. For more information please see
For those blocks purchased directly from Satterley in Honeywood or Honeywood Rise, you may have received a landscaping package as part of your land. This is supplied by LD Total. We highly recommend submitting the forms that you received from Satterley upon purchase 6 weeks prior to completion of your building. Your landscaping will only cover your front garden & reticulation and you will need to choose from an approved list of plants. Please note that in our experience, substitution of plants due to availability is very common! After submitting your form, you will have a meeting with someone from LD Total where you will work out what you are going to have in your garden. Before your consultation you will need to arrange the following:
- Ensure that your site is clean, free from rubbish, rubble and weeds, and finished to the levels you require, with soil levels 30mm below the top of surrounding kerbs, paths or driveways. Site cleaning, sand removal and levelling is not included in the Landscape Package.
- Install a STRAIGHT 90mm diameter PVC storm water pipe under the driveway, approximately 300mm below the ground and offset 4 metres from your carport/garage. This duct is to run pipe work and wiring for the irrigation ONLY, and eliminates the need to pull up any paving. No other services are to be run within this conduit. Paving will be removed and not replaced if this pipe is not present and clearly marked!
- Should you have paving down one side of your house, then a 90mm PVC pipe should be installed beneath the paving and clearly marked, to allow future connection to the rear. As the Irrigation Controller and Gate Valve are to be installed next to the Meter Box and Water Meter respectively, these areas must be clear of paving (i.e. brick paving, concrete, liquid limestone, gravel etc) for cable and pipe connection.
- The driveway, crossover, fencing to the front of your property and any extra works such as retaining walls and planter boxes will also need to be installed prior to booking a consultation.
I’m about to start building my house, what internet/phone requirements do I need to communicate to my builder for the LBN network?
The prerequisites required to connect to the LBN Network are now the same as the requirements for NBN. This link here has a detailed list of the Requirements that must be met before attempting to connect to the LBN Fibre Network. All new areas of Honeywood are serviced by either the LBN or NBN network. https://www.lbnco.com.au/residents/#residents-connect
‘Civil stone’ are the providers of these retaining wall blocks for Honeywood. They can also be purchased directly from the ‘Stone Ridge’ Quarry: http://www.stoneridge.net.au/ The mortar ‘dye’ is generally not a colour that can be obtained from bunnings. The colour is reportedly called ‘Biscuit’ and can be sourced from Stonecivil. Many of the residents have used a Contractor ‘Sam’ to source and install these blocks for them. Sam can be contacted on his mobile: ‘0412 099 199’
