So I have just looked at Penrith Council's website and our Plans have been lodged and Council is currently undertaking a pre-assessment!! My fingers are crossed for a quick and painless turnaround.
There was no water connected to our block so we have now arranged for a plumber and because the main was on the other side of the road we needed an underground bore to arrange the connection.
Other than that we are busy fixing up our current home ready to sell!!
