STOCKLAND staff enjoyed a “constructive discussion” about Vale with residents at a community consultation last week, according to senior development manager Stuart Sinclair.
He said some great ideas were tabled and debated during the course of the evening.
“We’re looking forward to engaging in a similar process with Aveley residents,” he said.
“We’re keen to come up with the best and most appropriate ways to create green, useable public open spaces that not only respect the transition between our residential community and neighbouring farmland, but also seek to harmoniously integrate the residential and rural communities.”
Mr Sinclair said it has been ensured more than 23 per cent of the Vale community retains and preserves natural bushland, wetland and parklands.
“Approximately 80 mature native trees have been retained along a wide median strip dividing Windermere Boulevard,” he said.
“The trees range in age from around 20 years old to well over 50 years old.”
Another informal community session was held last night.
