located. It’s just a 15 minute drive to the Kwinana Freeway, while the Tonkin Highway is less than 5 minutes away.
Closer to home, the town of Byford offers an already
established community with schools, shops, medical
facilities and other essential services. And because
The Glades is nestled at the foot of the Darling Scarp,
you’re close to the wonderful restaurants, cafés,
wineries and art galleries of the Serpentine Valley.

form an integral part ofThe Glades’community. Designed to inspire

Planning for the future.
At LWP Property Group, we don’t just believe in creating a thriving community for today, we are committed to
establishing a community built on the latest sustainability design principles. Principles that will ensure The Glades
remains a healthy and connected community for generations to come.
Ecological sustainable development has been considered
when creating The Glades, by selecting local plant species to
inspire landscaping, artworks and other creative motifs. The
existing avenues of mature trees have been retained to provide
shade and preserve the existing ‘rural’character of the area.
Native plants, traditionally associated with the existing
landscapes of Byford, will be used to provide colour, interest
and a point of difference. We are also focusing on low
maintenance landscaping for public and streetscape areas,
using species designed to flourish without irrigation after an
initial 3 year establishment period.

In order to maximise energy efficiency, more than 85 percent
of homesites at The Glades are on an east/west axis providing
a northerly aspect to living areas. This ensures that living areas
enjoy winter warmth and maximum cooling shade throughout
An Urban Water Management Strategy takes stormwater away
and strips it of harmful nutrients prior to the water being
returned into waterways. Regional‘rain garden’bio-retention
systems have been created in public parklands and road
