YourLand launches Society 1056 the first all-electric sustainable community West of Melbourne.


Innovative property developer, YourLand Developments today unveils an ambitious new community built with sustainability at its core. Society 1056, a 93-hectare site in the heart of Fraser Rise offers more than 1,300 lots only 24kms from Melbourne CBD.


This ground-breaking development caters to social and environmentally conscious individuals who value sustainable communities.  Society 1056 is all-electric and features more than 38 key sustainability initiatives, with the 5kw solar panels alone expected to save 8,000 tonnes of C02 per year which is equivalent of taking 1600 cars off the road.

Society 1056 will be the first all-electric estate in the West of Melbourne. Streets are designed to accommodate local bus routes, and to capture and redirect rainwater for irrigation. Lighter pigmented pavements and planted shadeways will reduce summer temperatures and rainwater tanks will reduce reliance on mains water, creating resilience during summer dry spells. 7-star builds are strongly encouraged and YourLand is granting rebates for 5kW solar panels on all homes greater than 300sqm. The Society 1056 solar rebate scheme delivers an incredible benefit to residents in most cases eliminating the payback period and providing immediate savings on household energy bills. The combined impact of these initiatives provides both tangible environment benefits and household savings of over $3,000 a year for a 6-star home.

Dean Gold, Chief Operating Officer at YourLand, emphasised the company’s holistic approach to sustainability at today’s launch. “Our legacy extends far beyond simply selling blocks of land. We prioritise and implement both environmental and social sustainability in our communities. Our design will significantly reduce the urban heat island effect, providing a cooler neighbourhood that is more energy efficient and delight to live in,” he says.

YourLand will plant more than four trees for every home, resulting in an impressive canopy of over 5,200 new trees, providing enhanced benefits from shade and natural cooling. It is estimated that residents of Society 1056 will enjoy an environment up to 7 degrees cooler than surrounding areas in the peak of summer. A pollination corridor is being constructed to encourage biodiversity throughout the site. YourLand has strengthened its environmental commitment using 100% GreenPower in the Society 1056 sales office built with eco-friendly materials and environmentally sustainable design.

“We are thrilled to set a new benchmark with the Society 1056 development showcasing a mindful approach to life. The design fosters an environment where children attend school together, play together, and families socialise together. Residents can actively engage in local sporting clubs and community-based activities, nurturing a sense of connection. The walkability and pro-social spaces promote healthier lifestyles, and interaction, making Society 1056 a truly exceptional and fulfilling place to call home,” he said.

Society 1056 caters to first home buyers, upgraders, downsizers, and individuals at every point in their life journey. “By offering a diverse range of housing options and price points, we promote inclusive communities that are socially sustainable,” explains Dean.
