Landscape Maintenance - A Brief History and Further Information

Twin Waters was designed and constructed with many parks and gardens which were kept in immaculate condition during the selling period by the developer. Members of the TWRA were concerned that when the maintenance was handed over to Council that the standard would fall off and after extensive consultations and negotiations with the Community and Council a Charter was signed with the Council providing for a Benefit Levy to be introduced which would allow a higher standard of maintenance to be carried out in our suburb.  (If you would like to read about the history of establishing our unique landscape maintenance arrangements, please follow the link Read More)

The maintenance is carried out by the Council calling tenders from Contractors on a 2-3 year basis. The specification and schedule of work is prepared and supervised by Council with the Twin Waters Maintenance Reference Group meeting with them and reviewing performance and any issues that may arise on a regular basis. The funds are raised from a Special Benefit Levy which is included in our rates (For the 2014 / 2015 financial year, the Special Benefit Levy is $115 per property). This Levy must by law be used on maintenance work within Twin Waters.

The success of this arrangement can be seen by the way our parks and gardens are maintained. Other Master Planned Communities have followed our lead and adopted similar schemes.

We have a special relationship with Council and if you wish to report any maintenance item that you believe requires attention you should firstly ring the Council at their Call Centre 5475 7272. They will give you a reference number and attend to your concern. If you do not get a response in a reasonable time you should email your concern to the TWRA and it will be passed on to the relevant Landscape Maintenance Representative.

The lake and canals in Twin Waters are the centre piece of our beautiful suburb and like our parks and gardens need to be nurtured and looked after by all residents.

Boating is restricted to sail boats and motorised craft with a maximum speed of 4 mph to prevent wash from damaging revetment walls that are the residents responsibility.

Fishing is allowed and while swimming is permitted, sharks have been sighted in the waterways.

Care should be taken by all residents that pollutants and rubbish are not allowed to enter into the water.

The Council have prepared a Canal Residents Handbook for Artificial Waterways that may be obtained by ringing the Councils’ Call Centre 5475 7272.
