Community FAQs

WILL EVERLEIGH HAVE A DOG PARK?

Yes. The dog park is currently under construction and will include separate off-leash areas for small and large dogs.

ARE THERE TOILETS IN ANY OF THE PARKS AT EVERLEIGH?

Yes. There are toilets located between the Everleigh Park events lawn and the future recreation park.  The toilet block consists of 6 toilet cubicles including 2 PWD cubicles which include change tables.

ARE THERE ANY NEW HIGH SCHOOLS PLANNED FOR THE AREA?

Yes. Recent updates to State Government education planning have identified a need for up to 7 new high schools within the Greater Flagstone Priority Development Area. One of the newly proposed high schools is within Everleigh, although we must note this is marked as “subject to state agency acquisition” meaning this is not yet definite. The Everleigh high school opportunity also has a nominal delivery timing of 2041. Community feedback strongly indicates a high school is required in the locality as a priority and the Everleigh project team continues to engage with Dept of Education on opportunities to accelerate delivery.

We will be sure to update the community with more details as they become available. Note the next closest proposed high school (outside Everleigh) is planned approximately 4km south west of Everleigh. If you have any questions, please contact the Queensland Department of Education directly on 13 74 68.

WHAT DOES MY BUILDER NEED TO KNOW?

The Building at Everleigh Portal is a platform for you and your builder to find all the relevant information required to build on your block of land.  We encourage you and your builder to familiarise yourselves with this resource.

WHAT IS A COVENANT BOND AND WHEN DO I PAY IT?

The purpose of a covenant bond is to ensure the homes built at Everleigh are delivered in accordance with the plans submitted and approved by Mirvac.  At Everleigh, this is a one-off payment of $1,000, payable when you submit your house and landscaping plans for approval.  When your have finished building your home and your landscaping is complete, you will book in a covenant inspection.  When the inspection is passed, your $3,000 bond will be refunded to you.

WHEN CAN I START BUILDING MY HOUSE?

You can start building your home once you have:

1) Settled on your land

2) Have covenant approval from Mirvac on your house and landscaping plans

3) Your $3,000 covenant bond has been paid.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO START BUILDING AFTER SETTLEMENT?

You have 12 months from the date of settlement to commence building your home.  Once you have started construction, you have a further 12 months to finish building and landscaping.

HOW DO I SPLIT THE COST OF FENCES WITH MY ADJOINING NEIGHBOURS?

You will need to coordinate with your adjoining neighbours to arrange the side and rear fencing to your block. Please contact the Everleigh Settlements Team with your best contact details to assist with connection to your neighbours.

IS THERE BODY CORPORATE AT EVERLEIGH?

No.  All land lots at Everleigh are freehold, bringing the cost of living down for you and your family.
