Aston Hills wins Award for Environmental Excellence

We’re thrilled to announce that Aston Hills has won the 2021 UDIA Award for Environmental Excellence for our Central Reserve and Lakes precinct…

As a design-led company, Lanser is proud that this project provides not only an attractive asset to the community but also a dual wetland system that provides best practice water treatment for urban run-off. 

Senior Project Director Gerald Ward states ‘Our team believes in the benefits that come from carefully planning and designing our communities. Good design is a principle that guides every aspect of our business so that we can feel proud of the legacy that we create for ourselves, for South Australia and for our residents – we’re proud that we’ve delivered these lakes incorporating best practice water treatment solution to the Aston Hills community.” 

The lakes include litter traps, inlet ponds and vegetated macrophyte zones which all play a critical role in improving water quality. It stores water for 2-3 days during low flows and in times of heavy rains and storms the system provides flood protection by detaining the flood water and releasing it slowly back into the stormwater network. 

The wetlands have been integrated into the Aston Hills landscape and have been closely considered as part of the overall design of the area. The combined treatment qualities of the wetland system meets best practice objectives and provide vast environmental benefits to the overall ecosystem. 

Surrounded by locally sourced native plants and heritage gums this precinct is also home to The Landing – a new cafe serving everything from coffee and breakfast to pizzas, burgers, beer and wine.
