Molonglo Valley is Canberra's newest region, located approximately 10 kilometres south west of the CBD between Weston Creek and Belconnen.
The development of Molonglo Valley will be staged over a number of years, and will eventually be home to several new suburbs. Wright and Coombs were the first two suburbs to be released in Molonglo Valley, and works have commenced in Denman Prospect. The fourth suburb will be Whitlam.
The Molonglo Valley Region Map indicates the three stages of the region's development.
Molonglo Valley will include schools, local shops, parks, green spaces and playgrounds to help connect the community to the location.
Residents will have easy access to some of Canberra’s premier outdoor playgrounds, including the Molonglo River, the National Arboretum Canberra, the National Zoo and Aquarium and Stromlo Forest Park.
Meticulous planning in Molonglo Valley has been conducted to employ some of the highest standards in energy efficiency, water conservation, solar access and ecological sustainability.
By utilising renewable forms of energy, reducing water usage and minimising pollution, the impact of residents on the natural environment will be minimal.
Wright and Coombs were certified as Canberra’s first EnviroDevelopment projects.
EnviroDevelopment is an industry certification scheme led by the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA). It recognises developments that go above and beyond the norm in incorporating sustainability features into their design and execution.
Wright and Coombs received accreditation in the Energy, Waste, Community and Ecosystems categories, placing them amongst the most sustainable developments in Australia.
Wright and Coombs has incorporated a wide range of sustainability initiatives, everything from Solar Envelope Guidelines which maximise solar access and 7 star rated multi-unit developments, to the recycling and re-use of green waste.
