|Sustainabilty & Planning|
Macdonald Estates is committed to achieving standards of environmentally-friendly levels above and beyond the legislative minimum and has embarked on an audit of all project proposals in the pipeline that will ensure innovative thinking on sustainability is brought forward as a key issue.
By placing our project framework at the forefront of the development process we ensure that fundamental principles of sustainability are at the heart of design development. Early inclusion ensures that innovation and creativity can be tabled early ensuring meaningful engagement with the community.
Good development provides a balanced environment where change is incorporated organically, vitality is enhanced and creation of wealth sits alongside a sense of place.
Sustainability and planning are inextricably linked. To plan for short, medium and long term, emphasis is placed on “ensuring that our actions do not limit our quality of life in the future”.
