Mullum Creek receives the prestigious nationally recognised EnviroDevelopment Certification
Mullum Creek is delighted to announce that we have achieved official EnviroDevelopment certification from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).
EnviroDevelopment recognises environmentally sustainable developments which have been carefully designed to protect the environment and use resources responsibly. The certification is awarded to projects that display exceptional standards in the areas of ecosystems management, waste, energy, materials, water and community living, with Mullum Creek being only the third project in Victoria to achieve all 6 elements.
Having been recognised as upholding the stringent standards set by the expert panel of experienced ecologists, town planners, engineers, architects, lawyers, economists and developers, Mullum Creek is set to be a showcase example of what can be done with creative and careful planning.
This highly coveted award will be officially presented at the Mullum Mullum Community Trail Event to be held this Sunday (event details below).
