Project Description

Oak Tree Retirement Village

Located in Kingston, south of Hobart, the Oak Tree Retirement Village is a 54 unit site with community centre
and private forest reserve. JMG undertook site planning, civil engineering and prepared the planning application
submission for the development.

The project incorporated a range of housing types and configurations to achieve level access on a sloping site.
The site was further complicated by the presence of forest regrowth areas which contained a number of threatened
species and by adjacent areas of private bushland reserve which posed a significant bushfire threat to parts of
the site. The development aimed to provide affordable housing options with access to a range of communal facilities.
The development was approved in August 2009.
