What Is a Feature Survey in Melbourne and Why do You Need One for Your Melbourne North or Melbourne West Property?

A feature survey in Melbourne is the first step in the process of any land development in the area. A feature survey will show all of the necessary details about a property, the adjoining properties, features in the street, and everything that is needed by a local council as part of an estate development project. Kennedy Setouts & Surveys has been providing Melbourne area homeowners and business owners with detailed surveys for years. The information is used by local councils, architects, and builders to identify factors that may affect the building process. These factors would include ground-level issues, contour issues, fences, trees, and much more. The survey has an impact on the design of a structure, land development, and any subdivision. At Kennedy Setouts & Surveys, we have developed a strong reputation for providing reliable, accurate information that assists homeowners and business owners, helping them to save time and money.
