Every home within Banbury Village will incorporate sustainable design features, protecting
the environment and providing water and electricity savings for all residents.

Initiatives include:

  • 6 star energy rated homes that are much more efficient to heat and cool, reducing demand for temperature control by up to 24%
  • Water efficient tap fittings – 3 star WELS (Water Efficiency Labelling Standard) rated shower, 4 star WELS toilet, 4 star WELS, basin taps and dual flush toilets designed to minimise mains water use.
  • Solar orientation optimised to allow solar access to private outdoor yards and one principal living area to most homes, thereby capturing the sun and providing a haven for indoor/outdoor living.
  • Thoughtful location of windows and doors in most homes to ensure natural cooling via cross flow ventilation.
  • Compact fluorescent light globes installed throughout all homes to reduce energy consumption and electricity bills.
  • Environmentally friendly (low VOC) paints and adhesives used throughout.
