ROSEHILL Waters in South Guildford has been awarded an environmental rating by the Urban Development Institute of Australia.
It is the first time a private development in WA has been accredited in all six categories.
The award was presented to Rosehill Waters by WA EnviroDevelopment Board chairman Paul McQueen at the WA UDIA’s quarterly function.
Rosehill Waters was awarded a waterwise certificate by Minister for Water Mia Davies. Water Corporation is working with UDIA to recognise exceptional water efficiency outcomes in all new water- sensitive developments.
EnviroDevelopment is a national program that independently verifies the sustainability performance of a project using a six-leaf rating system looking at ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community. Rosehill Waters joins more than 1`00 projects across Australia that have achieved environmental certification, just over half attaining the highest level of six leaves and is only the third to achieve it in WA.
Rosehill Waters aims to reduce landfill by more than 90 per cent and connect every home to a community bore system for all the gardens, reduce household energy bills by up to 50 per cent with a minimum seven-star energy performance built into every home and develop a community orchard on site for home-grown fruit and vegetables, along with preserving significant buildings and gardens on site for community use.
