Sustainable Development has been researched for over 25 years and began with the ecologically sustainable Merryville Park and Merryville Estate developments in Murrumbateman Australia, with over 300 blocks completed and sold by 2008. AGW’s main focus was to investigate introducing wind turbines into a Community Title subdivision to further the quest for Sustainability and Sustainable Development. The outcomes were truly astonishing and answer the IPCC questions in relation to the 2011 Special Report, "Renewable Energy in the context of Sustainable Development, looking for answers through risk analysis approaches to the complexity of the issue".
The landmark innovative Ballerina Park concept answers these questions and when built, will be an engineering masterpiece and an example of Pure Sustainable Development. This hybrid concept which critically incorporates community owned infrastructure including wind turbines should be the greenprint for ecological civilizations of the future https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecological_civilization as they will be autonomous for energy, water use management and effluent disposal. Their ecological and energy support systems will be perpetually self-replacing or free forever, after a modest sinking fund for wind turbine capital replacement and effluent maintenance. This provides a much lighter ecological footprint and will eventually be off the energy grid, with further advancement in battery technology and solar backup if necessary.
The Theory of Pure Sustainable Development has been derived from research and development over the last 25 years including primarily from the eclectic Merryville Park (rural/Ecological Sustainable Development (ESD)), Merryville Estate (rural/ESD) completed developments, and the more recent Ballerina Park (hybrid ESD/Wind Turbines) and Sunningdale Estate (urban now ESD/urban) concepts.
"PURE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IS AN ENGINEERING MASTERPIECE, WITH COMMUNITY OWNERSHIP OF INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS INCLUDING WIND TURBINES THE KEY, ALL INTEGRATED AT THE DEVELOPMENT PHASE, PAID FOR BY THE DEVELOPER, AND FACILITATED BY COMMUNITY TITLE MAKING IT ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE BECAUSE THE ECOLOGICAL AND ENERGY SUPPORT SYSTEMS ARE PERPETUALLY SELF REPLACING OR FREE FOREVER AFTER A MODEST SINKING FUND"
This theory will define the way most development concepts are done in 50 to 100 years because it it so efficient with a much lighter ecological footprint and will lead to contemporary living in modern day ecological civilizations on and off the grid as big battery storage with Vanadium and Lithium batteries become common place. Off the grid it will be combined with solar panels and battery storage with about 200% capacity to ensure reliability for residents. There will be no electricity bills or water bills for residents and free hydrogen will be available for residents produced from excess energy production.
An ecological civilization at Murrumbateman using Pure Sustainable Development principals was on AGW's agenda and planned at Murrumbateman in 2012 on Hillview a large rural property adjacent to the township but it was 10 to 20 years ahead of its time. AGW may pursue this opportunity again in the future as Murrumbateman has good wind speeds and reliable rainfall and it is near Canberra, Australia for employement opportunities.
This unique hybrid township has importantly already evolved with a number of eclectic Ecologically Sustainable Development concepts, which have not compromised our contemporary modern lives but enhanced them. People are more in touch with their environment and generally more beautiful surrounds. It is now proven that a more satisfying sustainable lifestyle often with pets or hobby's, results in better social outcomes, as demonstrated by the Murrumbateman Field Days which is a well-supported annual community event attracting tens of thousands of people. Bond University recently ranked Yass Valley the happiest place to live in NSW and Murrumbateman's hybrid sustainable and rural Lifestyle is the overwhelming reason why. Recognising socially sustainable outcomes from people managing their own infrastructure requires more work, but all indications are that people generally feel very good about it.
Now we have the solution to Pure Sustainable Development from the Ballerina Park concept, and with further community acceptance and a renaissance in learning, planned ecological civilizations will emerge around the world and most likely look something like Murrumbateman with wind turbines integrated at the development phase and paid for by the developer. These new communities will need to be community title or something similar, allowing ownership the infrastructure but without centralised sewerage plants and off site piped water infrastructure, which are costly and energy intensive and now proven to be unnecessary, as most rural communities around the world have demonstrated effectively. This will complete the transition to pure Sustainable Development with a lighter ecological footprint, altogether resulting in more affordable housing outcomes. The overwhelming case for Sustainable Development and ecological civilisations will, when fully appreciated by the relevant government authorities, become mandatory in the future. When Global Warming accelerates and sea levels rise as predicted, people will be driven inland to new locations with adequate wind speeds, rainfall and near employment centres, such as Murrumbateman near Canberra.
