The Minister for Planning has approved the Brompton Lodge precinct structure plan, which paves the way for a new a leafy new community in Melbourne’s south-east.
The Brompton Lodge PSP will consist of 100 hectares of land generally bounded by the Westernport Highway to the west, Ballarto Road to the north, and Cranbourne-Frankston Road to the south.
It will have a population of approximately 4000, who will be serviced by a local town centre, a purpose-built wetlands and leafy district park.
There will be tree-lined cycling and walking paths to Cranbourne West, which will have schools and many services.
The new community will have bus services to central Cranbourne from day one.
It is the second approved PSP that was designated a ‘logical inclusion’ to the urban growth boundary. Within the precinct there will be an array of apartments and town houses, and it will have an average density of 19 dwellings per developable hectare, which is denser than many establish Melbourne suburbs.
Developers will contribute more than $27 million in levies, which will help pay for community facilities and infrastructure.
The closest jobs hub is central Cranbourne, which is approximately 5km from the precinct. There will be 369 jobs based within the precinct, the majority of which will be at the local town centre.
