Few communities could ever offer this combination of high quality, contemporary homes, modern convenience and genuine natural beauty. Approximately 30 per cent of Woodlea is dedicated to open space.
Wild grasses, seasonal wetlands, River Redgums and local wildlife are all part of the Woodlea story. Great efforts have been made to nurture and protect all of this, especially the Deanside Wetlands and Kororoit Creek corridor. Specialist care, covering everything from biodiversity and planning controls to trails and recreation, means this landscape can be explored and enjoyed for generations to come.
Woodlea is an exemplary EnviroDevelopment accredited community. Residents here can feel sure that their community is producing minimal impact on the environment. The Woodlea approach encourages safe, healthy and active lifestyles, resulting in lower household energy and water costs. EnviroDevelopment projects meet stringent standards set by expert panels of ecologists, town planners, engineers, architects, lawyers, economists and developers.
Woodlea is the largest masterplanned community in Australia to achieve all six of the EnviroDevelopment accreditation ‘leaves’ which is performance-based on a broad range of elements including: ecosystems, water, energy, waste, materials and community.
The UDIA EnviroDevelopment certification program encourages developers to achieve best practice in sustainability initiatives raising the bar at least 20% over and above the minimum standards on a national platform.
A commitment to environmental preservation is present in sensitive landscape design that will rehabilitate habitat areas around the Kororoit Creek corridor, Deanside Wetlands & protected River Red Gum Forrest. Woodlea is ahead of its rehabilitation and conservation program with more than 500 trees already planted.
Approximately 30 per cent of the site has been earmarked for public open space which will incorporate an extensive network of walking & cycling paths. The community will see recycled water used to keep the suburb green and to minimise water demand from the estimated 20,000 plus residents.
