Sustainable Urban Development Framework

Urban developments built now and into the future will have a lasting effect on the sustainability of our cities. However competing pressures can make delivery of truly sustainable development difficult to achieve.

During 2010-11, MEFL developed the Sustainable Urban Development Framework (SUDF) to help project managers, urban planners, and developers embed sustainability features throughout development projects.

Download the Framework

The Sustainable Urban Development Framework is available for download.

SUDF is intended to be an industry resource – updated versions of the Framework will be made publicly available. MEFL is also working with developers across Victoria to create tailored versions of the Framework to assist in planning, communicating and delivering sustainability initiatives. Contact us for more information on how the Framework could help your project.

All enquiries and feedback can be directed to Gavin Ashley.

Tailored frameworks for urban developments

The SUDF continues to receive interest from many areas of the property sector. MEFL has worked with numerous developers and local governments to tailor the framework to a project’s specific circumstances. This is important, as every project is different and unless the specific context is responded to important opportunities to improve sustainability outcomes can be missed.

Project partners include:

The Commons

A standout project amongst these is sustainable apartment development The Commons, in Florence Street Brunswick.
