I think that’s a charming idea, congrats on your land purchase!

Ms.V:  Ok I’m an aussie and I would find it weird if the owners of the vacant block of land next to us dropped us a line, though it would make it easier to harrass them about cutting their grass rather than contacting the council. To me I expect builders, surveyors or inspectors to drop by but I wouldn’t expect the owners to contact me unless it was about fencing or some other issue (like notice of intent to subdivide). I would wait until you start building before trying to establish a relationship with your neighbours.

Maybe stop by the Aussie equivalent of the country sheriff’s office and leave your info.

Also, when you are there, if you stop at the local coffee shop where all the locals hang out, you can get to know people that way.
