Sustainability at Mt. Atkinson

A better way to live at Mt. Atkinson

Mt Atkinson is just one of Stockland’s communities striving to set the standard for sustainable living. It has been designed with nature in mind, creating an idyllic environment that blends into the surrounding landscape.

Solar Panels

Installing solar panels to assist with power usage can provide ongoing savings and alleviate cost of living pressures. By reducing your electricity bills, you can recoup the costs of a solar PV system over time and free up your income to spend on things that enhance your lifestyle. Solar panels also generate renewable, clean energy that is better for the environment.

At Stockland Mt. Atkinson, we lead by example with 27 solar panels adorning the roof of our Sales and Information Centre. These panels effectively cover most of our running costs, showcasing the benefits of renewable energy.

Reconophalt (Recycled road materials)

DEFINITION: Reconophalt is a form of sustainable asphalt that contains high recycled content from waste including soft plastics, glass and toner which would otherwise end up in landfill.


It is a ground breaking product for Australia, and  Mt. Atkinson is lucky enough to be the first development within the municipality to be trailing the product. Within our second Display Village we have used reconophalt, and providing it pasts all the tests, it could be the standard product we use throughout the remainder of the community. Expect a greener road ahead!

Repurposing onsite rocks

Large rocks are often discovered during excavation works where networks of pipes are installed deep underground. More often than not, these rocks will be crushed &/or disposed of which which adds to our carbon footprint. To reduce our impact on the environment the Mt Atkinson team have repurposed over 1,000 rocks by including them in climbable formations within some of our upcoming parks.

Recycling pipes

These large pipes are installed underground during the early phases of stage construction. Sometimes when we receive these pipes they can have cracks in them which can occur at any point during production or transport. Any pipes that do have cracks in them will not be approved by the authorities (due to their large size) so our team have come up with a creative way to recycle them. In some of our upcoming parks you will notice tunnels for kids to explore and play – this second life has saved the pipes from ending up in landfill.

Passive Irrigation

Passive Irrigation Gardens have been incorporated in streetscapes and landscaping throughout Mt Atkinson. These large garden beds act as filters to collect stormwater pollution. Using specially selected plants and different layers of soil, these beds soak up and filter stormwater to maintain the water quality before it then enters the ‘end of line’ water treatment systems.
