Village Edge Residential Estate, Bangalow
Client: Picamore Pty Ltd
The Village Edge development is located in the town of Bangalow, west of Byron Bay. Bangalow has a relaxed village atmosphere while offering most amenities.
GeoLINK has been undertaking the planning, civil and environmental engineering, ecology and construction supervision of the Village Edge development of a period of many years. The overall concept for this development was prepared prior to commencing initial designs with the estate being developed as an affordable land release for residential use.
The estate’s design reflects the design philosophy inherent in providing water-sensitive urban design, in that several of the streets do not contain kerb and gutters, but rather open grassed swales to carry drainage to the nominated drainage treatment areas.The provision of swales together with narrow road widths, curving road alignments, and reduced road reserve widths, reflects a subtle quietness and unhurried approach to the street façade.
This design approach has been extended wherever possible throughout this multistage development to continue the theme of previous stages. The estate also incorporates bike and pedestrian paths linking this development with easy access to the village centre of Bangalow.
Throughout the estate additional street landscaping and retaining of vegetation in selected park area has moulded this estate into a rural type atmosphere. GeoLINK has been involvement the design, contract administration and construction supervision throughout each stage of the estate.
