Recently on Home in WA we heard about Harvest Village, Western Australia's first and Australia's largest HIA GreenSmart Village

This is the first attempt by the land development industry to take a comprehensive approach to sustainable development practices.

Harvest Lakes is situated on 115 hectares at Atwell in Perth's fast-growing south-west corridor. It is about 25 minutes from the CBD by car and 16 minutes by train when the South West rail link opens in 2006.

Over the next 5 to 6 years, one thousand home sites will be developed here and Harvest Lakes will eventually be home to an estimated 3500 people.

The first release of 53 lots in November sold out very quickly and 47 of the 52 second release lots went on the weekend they were released.

This week David Grant talks with the Project Manager,Carl Curtis about the key features of "sustainability" and meets selling agent, John Spradbury from Satterley who describes the popularity of sectional releases of the land to date and when the next release is scheduled.

LandCorp will build a display home incorporating the full range of sustainable elements "under the one roof". They'll work in partnership with SEDO, the City of Cockburn and Murdoch University in developing the model.

And 12 major home builders have committed to the construction of 14 display homes that conform to the sustainability guidelines
Land prices at Harvest Village range from $91,000-$138,000 with an additional large blacks of 1500 square metres also available in the future.
