Documents on Public Exhibition

Environmentally Sustainable Design in Residential Subdivisions

Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) for residential subdivisions and individual houses can reduce ongoing costs of living, enhance community wellbeing and improve environmental sustainability.

Council is currently exhibiting a Research Paper on ESD for Residential Subdivisions in Regional Victoria, which has been prepared by eight regional councils, including the Rural City of Wangaratta.

Council is also seeking the community’s opinions on how to best implement the recommended actions contained within the ESD in Regional Victoria Research Paper. Your responses to a short survey will assist Council to develop an implementation program. 

Low cost ESD improvements for subdivisions include:

  • new lots that allow for beneficial solar orientation
  • more trees and shading, use of drought tolerant indigenous plants etc
  • reduction in impervious surfaces throughout the subdivision for improved stormwater drainage

Optimal dwelling orientation for passive solar gain can save householders in Wangaratta approximately $460 per year in electricity costs.

The ESD Paper, including the full set of implementation actions on pages 58 to 61, can be viewed below.

You can also take part in the short survey (only 5 questions) through the link below. The survey closes Saturday 27 October 2018.
