The Arden Precinct is one of Melbourne’s major urban renewal areas. The scale of transformation offers opportunities for precinct level solutions, including the potential to deliver deeper carbon reduction than an area undergoing only incremental change.

HIP V. HYPE Sustainability previously delivered the Climate Response Framework, and in partnership with Point Advisory and Hansen Partnership has now developed the Climate Response Plan. The Climate Response Plan has developed the evidence for the preferred carbon trajectory for the precinct.

Context

HIP V. HYPE Sustainability previously delivered the Climate Response Framework, and in partnership with Point Advisory and Hansen Partnership has now developed the Climate Response Plan. The Climate Response Plan has developed the evidence for the preferred carbon trajectory for the precinct.

The Plan was developed through four phases:

  • Consulting key stakeholders who have an active interest in or are responsible for delivering the Arden Structure Plan
  • Develop an analysis framework for assessment mechanisms that are available to State and Local Government to drive climate responsive outcomes in the built environment
  • Carbon scenarios development
  • Commercial viability and stakeholder testing of solutions

The Climate Response Plan is a key input into the Arden Precinct Structure Plan delivering the evidence base for a preferred carbon trajectory for the whole precinct, inclusive of operational stationary energy, transport and waste emissions. The work also recommended a suite of building scale planning controls that can deliver both mitigation and climate resilience outcomes.
