You will need Design Approval from the Everleigh Design
Committee and Building Approval from Logan City Council
or your Building Certifier before you can commence
The Design Committee often receives an influx of applications at the time of settlement. To avoid any potential delays, we recommend submitting your application as early as possible to give you a head start on the assessment process.
Your builder will work with you to design your home to comply with the Residential Design Standards and Guidelines document. Proceed to Step 2 once you’re happy with your design and your builder has drawn up the consolidated set of plans.
It may seem daunting but often your builder has plenty of experience with this process.
Your builder submits your house plans, colour schedules, landscape plans and proof of covenant payment (refer to Step 3) to the Design Committee via the Building @ Everleigh - Application Portal.
Please ensure that your builder attaches all the required documentation listed in the Covenant Application Form as part of the submission.
Your fully refundable Covenant Bond is required to be deposited to the following account to be held in trust.
HWL Ebsworth Lawyers Law Practice Trust Account
BSB: 034-003 Acc Number: 246634
Description: EV — “Surname & Lot Number” — Covenant Bond
Be sure to include the proof of bond payment as part of your covenant application to avoid a delay in the assessment and approval process. The bond will be returned after the final inspection (refer Step 9).
The Design Committee will assess your submission for compliance with the Design Standards & Guidelines. During this process, we will work with you and your builder if anything needs amendment. In some cases, plans may need to be resubmitted. This process normally takes 2 weeks if all information is provided.
The Design Committee will issue an approval when your submission has been assessed as complying with the Design Standards & Guidelines. Your stamped approved plans will be provided to you and your builder via the Building @ Everleigh Portal.
Please take care to note any comments on your Everleigh Design Committee stamped approved plans to ensure that all conditions of the Design Committee approval are addressed.
Once Design Committee approval has been issued, your builder can then make an application to your accredited building certifier/ Council for the statutory Building Approval.
Please ensure that your lot is properly maintained to be free of excessive weeds, rubbish
or garbage prior to and during the construction phase of your home. This will ensure that
the land is safe at all times.
Once your house and landscaping is complete, please touch base with
us via the Building @ Everleigh Portal to organise your final inspection.
The covenant bond will then be refunded once final compliance approval is issued by the Design Committee and the return bond form is completed on the Building @ Everleigh Portal.
