Development progress for FAIRLEY is moving along nicely.  A number of contracts have exchanged with others underway.


Detailed civil engineering, sewer and water reticulation design is 90% complete, in readiness to lodge with Yass Council for processing and issue of construction certificate.


The contract to undertake all the civil works has been awarded to Cord Civil Pty Ltd, one of Canberra's leading contractors with 20 years of quality works behind them.


The Barton Highway entrance approval process is currently underway with RMS, Roads and Maritime Services (formerly RTA) and documents have been lodged for their assessment and approval.




Fairley is named after William Fairley, a school teacher who taught in Murrumbateman from 1902-1909. William Fairley was responsible for planting the gardens and many trees around the school grounds. He inspired his students and taught them to nurture the environment they lived in. The former Murrumbateman School is adjacent to Fairley and is a place of historical importance for the community.


Fairley is situated on an old cattle and sheep farm previously known as Murrumbateman Station, which over time became Hawthorn Station. Hawthorn was once home to the local blacksmith shop, inn, store and worker homes, and was regarded as the centre of life until 1876, when the current village was built.
