Villawood creates more liveable, more resilient, communities by reducing energy and water use, managing carbon emissions and building people connections.
Villawood leads by example, donating a block of bushland to national forest for every residential block it sells. Its award-winning Aquarevo community is cutting water use by 70 per cent and non-renewable energy by 60 per cent.
Villawood also provides an industry-leading array of facilities, resources and events to assist community growth by greater resident interactions sand connections.
Australia’s most water and energy efficient urban community, Aquarevo is an award-winning collaboration between South East Water and Villawood. It delivers water savings of 70% and non-renewable power savings of 60%.
As Water Minister Lisa Neville says: “Aquarevo is setting new ground. It is a great example to other water authorities to be really thinking outside of the square and working with organisations like Villlawood.”
Villawood donates a block of bushland to the Kamarooka Forest, in the Greater Bendigo National Park, for every block of residential land it sells. To date, this remarkable offset has seen more than 250 hectares – 5500 lots or 625 acres – of land designated as critical habitat for local indigenous flora and fauna.
Villawood is constantly searching for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint, to ensure a cleaner, greener future, while building stronger community ties.
