As one of Moonee Valley's partners supporting Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) and BESS, Yarra City Council has been a leader implementing environmentally sustainable development and the SDAPP framework for nearly a decade.
They also showcase a number of high-performing ESD developments as case studies for the development community to utilise.
90 Chestnut Street, Cremorne
Development summary: An existing period terrace home has been extended by a prefabricated two-storey modular home. The compact design accommodates a three bedroom home on a very small inner urban site (approx. 125m2) without compromising access to daylight and natural ventilation. A green roof will be installed that greatly enhances the site’s permeability and ecological value. Read more from the project team here. Read more from the project team.
