HOUSING DEVELOPMENT WITH A BUILT-IN FOCUS ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The restored Awaruku Stream at Long Bay
Todd Property has overseen environmentally and socially conscious building projects since 2008, delivering innovative urban communities that are built around the idea of sustainability.
It’s earned the development team a reputation for high-quality work practices, which not only serve to protect the environment, but also to enhance it.
At Long Bay, this includes:
- More than $4.3 million invested so far in new planting – restoring bare pastoral land and streams with more than 310,000 new shrubs and trees.
- Massive new infrastructure undertakings, including a highly effective new wastewater tunnel which has wiped out sewer overflows in the local Torbay network.
- A multi-million-dollar erosion and sediment control programme, which involves a wide range of techniques and measures to effectively contain run off from the site.
- The creation of new parks and reserves, including the transfer of a 19ha headland into public ownership, enlarging the Long Bay Regional Park.
