Buyer’s Guide

Everything you need to know about making Whitby your new home.

A lot of planning goes into ensuring a new land development like Whitby turns out the way you expected it to. That’s why we have Design Guidelines and Covenants in place to protect your investment.

We don’t want you to build your dream home at Whitby only to find your neighbours then build something completely out of character with every other home in your street. That’s why we have guidelines and covenants in place.

They protect your investment by ensuring homes are built to a high standard, and that they complement surrounding homes and enhance the quality of the community as a whole.
