Only one lot in Stage One of the Yarrah development remains available, as developers are gearing up to turn dirt.

Woden Contractors, one of the oldest privately owned civil construction companies in the country, have delivered numerous civil constructions in the Canberra region. Yarrah Project Manager, Jack Walker, is confident that they can replicate their success with Yarrah.

“We’ve been working with Woden Contractor’s since October 2020, when we commenced an early engagement process with Woden bringing them in to help optimise designs for Construction Certificate approval.”

“We’re excited to see the past 11 months of pre-construction planning work with Woden’s crystallise into the deliverable outcome of a quality subdivision in line with the vision for Yarrah.”

“We’re confident that not only will Woden Contractor’s deliver quality outcomes in a professional manner. We’re glad to see they are also employing staff who live locally, engaging local subcontractors and material suppliers where possible. Yarrah is not only delivering affordable land and housing options but it is bringing substantial investment into the local economy, helping to drive much needed local jobs and economic growth,” said Walker.

The Yarrah Stage One will consist of the subdivision of 62 residential lots, one super lot for a future activity centre and one super lot for a 60 dwelling seniors living village courtesy of the Oak Tree Group, which is currently awaiting approval of its development application from Yass Valley Council.

The hope is that Stage One of construction will be complete within 12 months, and houses will be beginning to be built by this time in 2022. Stage Two of the development also has only one more lot remaining. Stage Three is expected to be available to the market by the end of October.
