Environmentally sustainable development

We can assist you to incorporate environmentally sustainable design (ESD) into your development during the planning process. In Moonee Valley, ESD is achieved in the most cost effective way for developers using Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP).

SDAPP provides applicants with relevant industry tools and methods to reduce the impact of the development upon the environment and its users. 

We have outlined here the requirements for a successful sustainability assessment including application tools, materials and instruction sheets, case studies and other useful information.
