Winten Property Group appointed Monteath & Powys as a trusted advisor and delivery partner for their aspirational project at Cliftleigh Meadows. This master-planned residential development is a Torrens titled subdivision consisting of around 1000 residential lots including parklands, playgrounds and sports fields located just off the Hunter Expressway at Cliftleigh and situated in a strategic location that services both Maitland, Newcastle, and the Hunter Valley.

Monteath & Powys has been the lead consultant on the project since it’s very early stages providing surveying, town planning and project management services for the initial Planning Proposal, Development Application and VPA negotiations between the Client and Council, through Section 4.55 modifications, to construction delivery and registration.

Various critical issues presented and successfully managed throughout the project relating to mine subsidence sinkholes, acid sulphate soils and contaminated waste, the rehabilitation of ecologically sensitive Testers Hollow Wetland, European heritage associated with old remnant mine workings, Aboriginal heritage, and VPA requirements including local and regional parks.
