Tullamore Residential Development (Doncaster) receives EnviroDevelopment Certification

Construction of Mirvac's fast-selling residential community, Tullamore (Doncaster), has commenced, following recognition of its sustainability by the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).

Tullamore (Doncaster) has attained all six elements (ecosystems, materials, waste, energy, water and community) required for the UDIA's EnviroDevelopment certification.

Located in Doncaster at the Eastern Golf Course site, the Development Plan provides for approximately 800 dwellings including a mix of Mirvac built-form townhouses and free-standing homes, vacant land allotments available for external builder packages, and potential for higher-density apartment dwellings along Doncaster Rd. Over 20% of the site will be retained as green open space, including the protection and ongoing management of areas supporting remnant native vegetation and a large number of mature trees.

Tullamore is one of Manningham's only Six Leaf rated developments, and has been praised for its retention of green open space, and water and ecosystem management.  The national UDIA EnviroDevelopment rating system aims to help consumers identify environmentally sustainable developments, and recognises the environmental benefits Tullamore (Doncaster) will provide buyers and the wider community.

Our specialist team have worked with Mirvac over the past 4 years, undertaking all of the ecological assessments, and providing expert and practical advice in relation to the retention of areas of ecological value.  We also prepared detailed reports for the planning approval process, participated in community consultation sessions and appeared as an expert witness at the Planning Panel for the rezoning of the land and planning permit. 

We recently completed a comprehensive review of all previous work conducted for the development, along with the supporting documentation for EnviroDevelopment certification.

Shannon LeBel (Consultant Botanist) was pleased that Mirvac was able to 'retain a large proportion of the remnant and planted trees on the site, and enhance retained remnant vegetation and fauna habitat above the usual acceptable requirements. It was a collaborative effort to strike a balance for the development of the site and the protection and management of the ecological values'.
