A PolisPlan Initiative


a new paradigm for regenerative land development

Beautility developments is a not-for-profit, community equity developer established by town planning consultants, PolisPlan.

We are planning for a network of high-tech, regenerative villages that strive towards self-sufficiency and zero waste within their bioregion. Each village will house a diverse community of 200 people and will integrate affordable co-working and co-living spaces with water and energy micro-grids and a regenerative agricultural system.

We work with communities around Australia who are interested in attracting investment and people to their area and then with the local Council to establish the enabling town planning policies.

“Steven Liaros and Nilmini De Silva of PolisPlan have developed a compelling blueprint for a new urban form that is not just sustainable but regenerative in its ambitions. Their inspiring vision is to create a template for ‘best practice’ urban development, one that is highly self-sufficient in meeting community needs within the local bioregion; one that contributes to the local economy; and one that draws on renewable energy technologies with the aim of moving toward a flourishing, zero-waste, and post-carbon urban form. Most importantly, the ambition is to demonstrate the replicability of the plan and thereby provide guidance for future urban planning. The thinking beneath this vision is impressive and the plans meticulously formed. At last there is a development plan worth believing in and supporting. I look forward to the prospect of working with Steven and Nilmini as this vision becomes a reality – and together show, through research, innovation, and development, that urban living does not have to cost the Earth.”
