Woodlea has received national EnviroDevelopment certification from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA), which recognises the project’s unique dedication to sustainability and environmental sensitivity.
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.
Woodlea was presented the certificate on 22 September and said the team was proud to receive industry recognition for its best practice and early considerations in environment and sustainability measures for this emerging community.
Woodlea’s Project Director Matthew Dean said, “Achieving all six leaves is an important external recognition of our efforts to preserve the current environment and landscape while incorporating sustainable planning and design initiatives.
“Our vision is to create a community for growing families and our future residents will be proud to call Woodlea home knowing that their community will make a positive environmental contribution to the surroundings,” said Dean.
Education and sustainability are two key pillars at Woodlea, where Bacchus Marsh Grammar has already entered into an agreement to work towards establishing an early childhood and pre-school centre as well as a prep to grade six primary school on the site.
Woodlea will be an exemplary EnviroDevelopment accredited community, with a focus on reducing energy, waste and water consumption not only for housing but also across the development.
A commitment to environmental preservation is present in sensitive landscape design that will rehabilitate habitat areas around the Kororoit Creek corridor, Deanside Wetlands and 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 and 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.
EnviroDevelopment Board Chairman, Lyndsay Neilson, said Woodlea is currently the largest master-planned community in Australia to achieve all six elements.
“EnviroDevelopment is a great example of developers, government and industry working together to benefit the whole community and increase Victoria’s liveability by encouraging sustainable development and making it easier for buyers to identify excellence.
“This 15-year development project highlights the innovation and sustainability credentials of the Woodlea team, who are to be congratulated on achieving this award. With its ambitious sustainable program, Woodlea raise the bar and set new standards on at least three major elements: water, community and eco-system.
“Woodlea sets a new benchmark for masterplanned communities in the region being the first sustainable development in the City of Melton and the surroundings. With its truly innovative approach, the development is set to offer a living environment without parallel to its community,” said Neilson
