The announcement of Cloverton's 6 Star Green Star rating is really exciting for future Cloverton residents as it means they will be living in one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly communities in the world.

Cloverton - A Green, Eco-Friendly, Sustainable World-Class Community 

Cloverton has received a highly coveted 6 Star Green Star- Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA). The 6 star rating recognises world leadership across a wide range of environmental, economic and social sustainability measures. 

Cloverton is the largest residential development ever undertaken under single ownership in Victoria and the first city-sized mixed use development to be awarded a 6 Star Green Star - Communities rating. In time, Cloverton will evolve into a city in its own right, covering 1,141 hectares and providing homes for 30,000 people, a city centre, train station, extensive parklands, numerous sporting fields, a medical precinct, a community garden, a retirement village, eight schools and a tertiary institution.

Romily Madew, CEO of the Green Building Council of the Australia said: "“Stockland has achieved world’s best practice for its masterplan for Cloverton. While Stockland’s focus on liveability means the community will be an extraordinary place for residents, the company’s environmental leadership is also worthy of applause. Stockland is setting aside a significant arboretum area with future potential for education and research – so Cloverton will be great for both people and the planet.”

Mike Davis, Stockland's General Manager Residential Victoria explained there was a multitude of factors contributing to Cloverton's 6 Star rating. " Everything that goes into our Green Star rating - more green spaces with better and safer parks and playgrounds; more sustainable, high-quality materials selection; or the connectedness and walkability of our neighbourhoods - makes Cloverton a better place and a better way to live."

“Cloverton features a metropolitan scale activity centre generating significant employment opportunity and options for education, retail, entertainment and medical care that people would expect to find in any modern city.”

Future residents will be within walking distance of Donnybrook Train Station, have convenient access to the Hume Freeway, and will be only 15 minutes from all existing services and amenities at Highlands.

Cloverton will be great for both people and the planet. - Romily Madew, CEO of the Green Building Council of Australia
