Tender awarded and names chosen for Council subdivision in north Balclutha
Clutha District Council awarded the main construction contract for its subdivision in north Balclutha to SouthRoads at yesterday’s Council meeting.
The contract will include work such as road construction, laying water, sewer and storm-water pipes and landscaping.
Council received three tenders for the contract and SouthRoads was successful with a tender price of $2.55 million.
There are additional items associated with the project such as other road construction work, pump station construction, power supply and telecommunications, which are not part of this contract and will also be happening at the subdivision in the coming months.
The total cost of the subdivision project is expected to be approximately $5.7 million.
Construction work at the subdivision is likely to start in the next few weeks and the aim is to have it finished in March 2017.
The surveying and development company Terramark has also been involved in the initial stages of the subdivision and will project manage the subdivision development on behalf of Council.
Over this coming month Council will also be completing sale and purchase documentation and after that will be in touch with potential buyers who have a first right to make an offer. Other intending purchasers can still secure first rights to make an offer up until Christmas.
At the 22 September Council meeting, the name Plantation Heights was chosen for the subdivision and at yesterday’s meeting street and reserve names for within the subdivision were selected.
These were as follows:
- Subdivision Name: Plantation Heights - Carolynne Stephens and Diane White
- Street Name 1: Oregon Place - Carolynne Stephens
- Street 2: Monterey Drive - Clutha Development
- Street 3: Cypress Lane - Carolynne Stephens and Ken Stephens
- Reserve 1: Lancewood Reserve: Ken Stephens
- Reserve 2: Manuka Park: Ken Stephens
These names were selected by Councillors following a public competition and reflect the subdivision’s history as a former plantation site.
Terramark kindly contributed a $500 cash prize for the competition and this will be split evenly between the four winners who suggested the names above.
People still interested in purchasing a section at the subdivision should keep an eye on Council’s website or contact us on 0800 801 350.
