Car­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

One of the most at­trac­tive as­pects of liv­ing at The Green, the Fair­way Vil­lage at Lake­lands Country Club (LCC) is the beauty of its nat­u­ral set­ting ad­ja­cent to the golf course and nestling next to park­lands and bush that pro­vide a ‘rus­tic’ feel. Pro­tect­ing the valu­able en­vi­ron­ment, was a pri­or­ity for the LCC and Fair­way Vil­lages. En­vi­ron­men­tal As­sess­ment

An En­vi­ron­men­tal As­sess­ment Re­port was com­pleted. It pro­vided a ba­sis for plan­ning that pro­tected, pre­served and en­hanced the nat­u­ral beauty of the site with bet­ter buf­fer and man­age­ment pro­grammes for sen­si­tive ar­eas. Spe­cial at­ten­tion has been paid to the park­lands which had suf­fered be­cause weed man­age­ment had been ne­glected in ar­eas that had de­graded.

De­sign Ex­cel­lence

Then, the need for de­sign ex­cel­lence was high­lighted to sep­a­rate the park­lands from the vil­lage. Res­i­dents re­quire­ments and pref­er­ences had to be mar­ried to the re­quire­ments of the Depart­ment of Parks and Wildlife to en­sure the park­lands in par­tic­u­lar do not de­te­ri­o­rate fur­ther.


Own­er­ship of the park­lands will re­main with the LCC and man­age­ment re­spon­si­bil­i­ties for the buf­fer in­ter­face will be in­cor­po­rated into the on­go­ing costs iden­ti­fied within the Strata Man­age­ment State­ment.
