Each of our ambassadors can provide a suite of information about land and home packages, LIM reporting, council services, deadlines for building, consents and any other questions you may have about your new Highland Park property.

Are there Community Covenants in place to control house designs?

Covenants are registered on the titles for each residential lot to ensure consistent quality development within each Neighbourhood. The Covenants allow for a mixture of single-level and two-level dwellings with consistent design themes (including integrated roof pitch designs, gables and eaves) and landscaping that maintains visual harmony with the surroundings.

This is important to protect and enhance the value of your individual investment. For further detail on Highland Park community convenants please visit our resources page.
