Construction Commencing December 2021
* subject to no further delays due to the pandemic or any other external factors. Estimated time of title registrations – August-Sept 2022
The proposed action is identified as a residential development at 803-853 Taylors Rd, Caroline Springs, Victoria (EPBC 2020/8640). The proposed action is to be undertaken by Jen & Jacq Developments Pty Ltd. The proposed action is a controlled action under the EPBC Act. The controlling provisions are listed threatened species and communities (Sections 18 & 18A). The relevant matter of National Environmental Significance is Growling Grass Frog Litoria rainiformis. No other matters of national environmental significance are likely to be impacted. The proposed action will include clearance and development across the site, including the revegetation of the habitat corridor along the Stony Hill Creek and the creation of two Growling Grass Frog wetlands in the south-eastern corner of the development. The two Growling Grass Frog wetlands to be constructed are appropriate offsets in compensating for the residual significant impacts, as they are deemed to satisfy the principles of the department’s EPBC Act Environmental Offset Policy.

We understand that the recent market, whilst provided benefits to the purchasers, still implied that many construction sites could not undertake operations normally.
COVID-19 meant that contractors and builders would have to implement measures never undertaken before and limit the number of personnel on site.
We understand and appreciate your wait during this process and hope that you understand that we are all in this together.
That said, the Growling Frogs Estate still remains to be a rare find within Caroline Springs and as such we believe your wait has only increased the value of your investment.
Commencing in August, with additional changes- such as 3 frog ponds and a beautifully landscaped creek reserve, the Growling Frogs Estate will be delivered around mid-next year.
In our opinion, to resuscitate the economy, further financial incentives from the government can’t be ruled out.
We hope that you are checking with your solicitors or conveyancers for our correspondence for extension.
If your solicitor or conveyancer has changed, then please contact us to the earliest on [email protected]com.au or 0420224613, quoting ‘the Growling Frogs Estate - your lot number ##’.
We look forward to hearing back from you.
