Investing in the environment: Harrington Estate’s long-term plan for sustainability

Investing in the environment: Harrington Estate’s long-term plan for sustainability




One of the most important aspects of how Harrington Estates have approached Harrington Grove is the preservation of large areas of Cumberland Plan Woodland within the estate.

Despite early stages of the development requiring the removal of some areas of bushland, embracing and nurturing large areas of the surrounding Harrington Forest have always been central to the long-term vision for Harrington Grove. To further enhance this vision, Harrington Estates have created a sustainable funding model to ensure the continued growth and preservation of natural flora.

To further improve the biodiversity of the local area and to provide additional funds for the management of the bushland, Harrington Estates entered into an agreement with the Commonwealth Department of the Environment to establish a native seed nursery onsite to substantially increase the diversity of plant species used in local revegetation projects.

A pilot nursery was established to test the viability of growing small, herbaceous species in a controlled environment and collecting the seed to use in local revegetation projects.

The success of the pilot nursery has allowed Harrington Estates to invest in upgrading the nursery to a commercial scale operation, with the funds from the sale of seed to revegetation projects going towards the long-term maintenance of bushland in Harrington Grove and nearby Catherine Park Estate.

This has allowed additional financial support for an existing community scheme as well as increasing the diversity of species used.
Harrington Estates are proud of their efforts to boost and revegetate the areas within and surrounding their projects, providing a long-term environmental solution.

Harrington Grove: The Epitome Of Liveability

Harrington Grove: The Epitome Of Liveability

Residents already agree that Harrington Grove is a magical place to live but the most recent award provides even stronger evidence. Harrington Grove has been named the best Masterplanned Community in NSW (2016) by the UDIA NSW | Meriton Awards for Excellence. The award recognises masterplanned developments that are self-sufficient and offer high standards of design. But most importantly, it is the sense of place and range of community facilities that are most sought in awarding this title.

This complements Harrington Grove’s award for Australian Residential Development of the Year (2014). The judges for that year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia Awards for Excellence noted the holistic approach and respect for the natural environment in Harrington Grove.

“The judges were particularly impressed by the overall quality of the development and attention to detail in every facet of the project. The restoration of bushland and creek lines and their integration with the residential precincts is exemplary," stated the award notes by the judges.
