MEFL is working with the City of Kingston on a series of ten workshops for local developers. The project involves a council-sponsored initial sustainability opportunity assessment by MEFL, working directly with the development team.
The workshops, which take between two and three hours, also act as an education opportunity for new environmentally sustainable development (ESD) approaches and technology. The methodology is informed by our experience in the management of the roll-out of Sustainable Design Assessment in the Planning Process (SDAPP) to councils across Victoria and the development of MEFL’s Sustainable Urban Development Framework which incorporates carbon (energy), water, waste, materials and transport considerations. This project has resulted in significant benefit for City of Kingston and developers.
