Client:The Riverview Group and the Land Development Agency (ACT Government)

ACT’s first six star Green Star – Communities rating – reflecting international best practice.

Elton Consulting has been working with The Riverview Group and the Land Development Agency (ACT Government) since 2007 to help realise the vision for the sustainable development of this cross-border (ACT-NSW) community.

Home to around 30,000 people, in four new suburbs (three in the ACT and one in NSW) to be delivered over the next 30-40 years. The new development will include around 11,500 new dwellings; retail and community infrastructure. With sustainability at the heart of this project, 800 hectares of land will be reserved for a conservation corridor along the Murrumbidgee River.

Elton Consulting has provided expertise across a range of areas, playing major roles in communications and engagement for the planning and rezoning phases; providing strategic advice; and guiding the establishment of a governance framework and business case for the conservation management trust. Our team also prepared a comprehensive Community Plan, including the development of an affordable housing strategy.

Next project – Cross border strategic advice and assistance forum and report work.
