Australian Projects

Master Planned Communities

36,000 people. To be developed over a 38 year period, Rocky Springs includes a mixed use development involving residential, hilltop environmental residential, mixed use, town centre, business and industry and open space uses. This project involved an Integrated Planning Act
1997/Environmental Impact Statement (IPA/EIS) process as it was considered a controlled action under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 due to the presence of the rare/endangered species of the Black Throated Finch and was lodged under Section 3.1.6 of the IPA.
