Lochiel Park is an important element in the implementation of the State Government’s Strategic Plan and is specifically aligned with the following objective:
"South Australia should reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and begin preparing its economy and society for climate change and a carbon constrained world."
Lochiel Park is just 8 kilometres from the Adelaide Central Business District alongside the River Torrens in the suburb of Campbelltown. The site has been transformed from a former education institution to model green village incorporating a raft of best practice sustainable technologies. Lochiel Park will serve as a model for other urban developments and assist in educating the public and the property development industry about sustainable housing and land development.
Lochiel Park’s Ecologically Sustainable Development (ESD) technologies include energy efficient building design, solar energy systems, a recycled water system and the effective management of waste to minimise the impact on the environment. With only 4.25 hectares of the 15 hectare site allocated for the residential component, over 10 hectares have now been incorporated as parklands and are protected by legislation against future development.
When complete, Lochiel Park will comprise of 100 homes showcasing leading edge design principles. Each will be constructed by two select South Australian builders committed to delivering sustainable housing. These construction companies are Charterhouse by Hickinbotham and Rossdale Homes.
Lochiel Park provides a new way of living for South Australians and is an example of South Australia's Strategic Plan in action.
