The Tallong Park estate operates under the 88B Covenant, the Tallong Park Association’s Constitution and Local Rules and Regulations.
The 88B Covenant is a legally binding document that lays out procedures, rules and regulation for residents building on the estate.
It can be seen below in the following two linked documents:
The Constitution of the Tallong Park Association Inc is shown here:
In conjunction with the Constitution the following are the Local Rules:
The estate is run by the Management Committee, a group of up to eight residents who are volunteers to maintain the estate. They are elected at the Tallong Park Association Annual General Meeting held usually in December. They run the estate in accordance with best practice and our Corporate Governance Plan, including drawing up budgets and financial plans.
The Committee meets on the second Friday of each month starting with a community Forum at 7 pm when members can bring along suggestions and comments. Please contact a member of the committee, or the office, to let them know you intend to come. If meetings are re-scheduled, we can then advise you of any changes.

Each individual lot is Torrens Title (individually owned). Community land and facilities are owned by all association members.
Development Applications must be approved by the Management Committee in accordance with our rules and the Covenants on the land within the estate prior to being submitted to the Goulburn Mulwaree Council.
There is an annual levy that each block pays for maintaining the Tallong Park Estate to a high standard for the benefit of all residents. Fees are allocated between a Working Account and Capital Account. The Working Account has funds allocated from the annual budget. The Capital Account is used so the interest it generates contributes to the Working Account. While aiming to keep annual levy increases to a minimum, low interest rates have meant increases have been above CPI in recent years.
Electricity – each lot has access to power. Supply is at each residents’ own costs.
Phone lines and Internet access – each lot has access to a phone line. Supply of land phone line and ADSL internet connections are at each residents’ own costs.
Mobile reception – is variable per provider across the vast estate.
Water – residents are responsible for their own water supply. Most residents have multiple tanks that collect rain runoff from roofs. This can be supplemented by deliveries at residents’ own cost. Also, a limited allocation of non-potable bore water is available.
Sewerage – disposal of effluent is the responsibility of each resident. Septic tanks and the treatment of effluent must comply with the 88B convenant, associate constitution and local government rules and regulations.
Garbage – there is no garbage collection from the lot. The local government provides a card to use the Goulburn or Marulan Waste Management Centres at no cost. They are open:
Marulan -Wilson Drive, Marulan : Open Saturday & Sunday from 8am to 4pm and Friday & Monday from 8am to 12pm (closed between 12pm and 12:30pm on open days, closed on public holidays and from 12pm on Christmas Eve).
