The meticulously designed villages within Newhaven Estate feature generous parklands with stands of century old Melaleuca trees, promoting a healthy outdoor lifestyle and social interaction.

Newhaven Estate pioneered the ‘Living Stream’ urban water management concept in WA, turning an open drain into a thriving ecosystem, with stands of quality remnant vegetation along the realigned Ballunup Drain corridor. CDP’s site responsive design resulted in pleasantly meandering roads alongside linear parks influenced by retention of mature trees; this resulting in an immediate, distinctive characteristic and significant marketing drawcard for the Estate.

Spanning 130ha and located within Perth’s rapidly growing South-Eastern Sub-region, approval of the structure plan required extensive communication to meet stakeholder objectives; this successfully guided by the City of Armadale managed North Forrestdale Steering Group.

Home to over 7,000 residents, Newhaven Estate has significantly contributed to the market success of subsequent land developments in the broader Piara Waters and Harrisdale localities.
