CEDAR Woods’ Bushmead estate near Hazelmere has been officially launched following the opening of its sales office.
Cedar Woods chairman Bill Hames was joined by Midland MLA Michelle Roberts at the opening ceremony to unveil a plaque marking the occasion.
“Bushmead presents a limited opportunity for nature lovers looking at escaping the hustle and bustle of city life,” Cedar Woods WA state manager Ben Rosser said.
“It is home to some of WA’s most unique fauna and flora that future residents and surrounding communities will be able to explore and connect with.
“A healthy and active lifestyle will be promoted throughout the estate with walking and cycling bush trails.”
The official opening is another milestone for Bushmead since the sod-turning ceremony that marked the start of construction at the |development eight months ago.
Bushmead was also recently recognised with the Urban Development Institute of Australia’s six-leaf EnviroDevelopment accreditation and endorsed by Water Corporation as part of its Waterwise Development program.
“Bushmead is one of only a handful of WA projects to have received certification under all six elements of EnviroDevelopment, so this is an outstanding achievement which reinforces Cedar Woods’ commitment to creating sustainable communities,” Mr Rosser said.
“From a population of zero today, more than 2000 residents are expected to call Bushmead home over the next decade and we are delighted to offer them a community they can be proud of.”
Located 16km from the Perth CBD, Bushmead is a 273ha 600-lot development on the former Bushmead Rifle Range.
More than two-thirds of the development, or 185ha, will be conserved and used as parks and recreational reserve to ensure the existing habitat is preserved.
The development is expected to be completed in 2027.
