MEFL worked with the City of Kingston on a series of ten workshops for local developers. The project involved a council-sponsored initial sustainability opportunity assessment by MEFL, working directly with the development team.
The workshops, which took between two and three hours, also acted as an education opportunity for new environmentally sustainable development (ESD) approaches and technology. The methodology was 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.
