Our commitment to creating a sustainable future.
Stockland is committed to the protection and enhancement of Aura’s natural environment and has already started work to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. Aura’s master plan has been designed to honour the natural values of the site, and its proximity to Ramsar-listed wetlands including the Pumicestone Passage and Bells Creek.
The site itself is comprised of degraded land previously used for forestry and grazing. As part of the project, more than 700 hectares, or nearly one-third of the site, will be rehabilitated and designated as a conservation area. This includes the creation of an Environmental Protection Zone and rehabilitation of waterway corridors. The Environmental Protection Zone will include an environmental education facility and sustainability awareness programmes will promote life-long learning among residents and local school children. New habitats for rare and endangered flora and fauna species will also be created, with fauna underpasses at every major creek crossing and along all major roads.
A WORLD CLASS CITY
In designing Aura, the Stockland team has drawn inspiration from some of the world’s most liveable cities to enhance the unique liveability and lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast; to create a city that is truly world class.
