Eastbrook Links Estate, NSW

Situated at Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley NSW, Eastbrook Links Estate is a 1100-lot masterplanned 157-hectare residential development with walking paths, cycle trails and water features.

ACOR’s role included the management of the masterplanning, design, construction supervision and DA approval process from greenfield through to land release.  This involved preparation of all linen plans and 88b instruments for registration with the LPI, detail design for all infrastructure including roads, drainage, water, sewer, electricity and communications for the construction certificate.

Extensive liaison and negotiation was required with local council and Government authorities including DIPNR, Rural Fire Services, the RMS and the local Aboriginal Community to gain DA masterplan approval.

The project has utilised the latest techniques in Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD). WSUD involves the careful integration of water cycle management into urban planning and design so as to minimise the negative impacts of urban development on the natural water cycle.
