Do you have the ‘Bushfire Attack Levy’ at Accolade?

Accolade is listed as having a Bushfire Attack Levy but this is usually lifted the once land is titled. Most of Stages 1-3 have had the bushfire levy lifted as well as parts of Stage 6 which is yet to be titled. There is a chance the Levy may not be lifted due to the location of your lot. If this occurs it adds approximately $3,000 to the cost of building your home.

When will the Rockbank local Town Centre be open?

The Town Centre construction is dependent on the number of people living in the area. We estimate construction will commence in 2021 but as the town centre is not being built by the Accolade developers we have no involvement in its construction.
