Is there any contamination on site?
A number of small contaminated sites have been identified across the site during the planning process and will be remediated to be suitable for sensitive residential use. A statement or certificate of environmental audit will be provided in the Vendor's Statement.
The first and second precinct does not require any remediation.
What does the EnviroDevelopment accreditation mean?
Woodlea is a EnviroDevelopment accredited community, qualifying for the full 6 star leaf rating.
EnviroDevelopment is a scientifically-based assessment scheme that independently reviews development projects and awards certification to those that achieve outstanding performance across four or more of the provided elements - Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water and Community.
EnviroDevelopment serves to make it easier for purchasers to recognise and, thereby, select more environmentally sustainable developments and lifestyles.

Will there be a noise wall along the Western Freeway?
As part of preserving the acoustic amenity for residents, a noise attenuation wall along the Western Freeway will be designed and built in stages as the development front nears the freeway. The design of the wall will complement the urban design and architectural character of the estate. Construction of the wall is anticipated between 2022 and 2025.
Woodlea / Vic Roads
Are there any requirements for noise attenuation on Leakes Road?
As part of preserving the acoustic amenity for residents, Woodlea has placed a restriction in the design guidelines that ensure homes with frontage to Leakes Road will require a minimum 6.76mm laminated glazing to front façade windows and secondary frontage for corner lots.
Will every home have Class A re-cycled water?
Wester Water is no longer funding the construction of the required infrastructure to provision for the supply of recycled water to new homes throughout Western Water’s region.
Woodlea has agreed with Western Water that all lots within Woodlea located South of Taylors Road (inclusive of stages 1 – 37) will be provided with a recycled water connection, while all lots within Woodlea located North of Taylors Road will have potable water only.
As required by Woodlea’s agreement with Western Water and the Woodlea Design Guidelines, for lots that are provided with a recycled water connection, builders must continue to incorporate a recycled water connection into house designs in order to achieve developer approval.
Will I have recycled water from day one?
Western Water is the responsible authority for delivering recycled water supply. While Class A recycled water infrastructure is being installed throughout the Woodlea development, the supply of Class A recycled water to the site is not yet available. Until this occurs, Woodlea residents will receive drinking water through their Class A Recycled Water system until the recycled water supply is available and the cost of the water will then revert to Class A Recycled Water Rates.

Why do I have two meters?
One meter tracks your drinking water usage and the other purple meter will track your recycled water usage.
The recycled water will be connected to homes for toilet flushing and for outdoor uses like watering gardens and washing cars.
Until the Class A recycled water supply is available drinking water will be supplied through both pipes.
What service charges will I receive?
Residents in Woodlea will not be charged a service availability charge for Class A recycled water, until the recycled water supply is switched on. Only one set of drinking water availability charges will apply until Class A recycled water is available.
What does this mean for my bill?
As the recycled water pipe is supplying drinking water, customers will be charged the usual tiered rate for drinking water usage. Western Water will add the amount of water used through each meter, before calculating the water usage charge.
When will we get recycled water?
Recycled water infrastructure to the site needs to be provided by Western Water before it can be sent through a separate purple pipe system to Woodlea.
When Class A recycled water services commence Western Water will contact residents well in advance and provide plenty of information about recycled water.

What are you doing to enhance the Wetlands and Woodlands?
The woodlands will be enhanced and maintained by Woodlea until they are handed across to Council. The existing wetlands and creek corridor will be beautified to maximise usability and amenity for residents and be integrated closely with the development and will included shared paths, vehicular and pedestrian crossings.
The extent and scope of beautification is to be agreed with relevant authorities as these areas are set aside for conservation.
Commence around 2018
