Residents in Melbourne’s south-east will have even more options about where they live, work and socialise thanks to an expanded town centre planned for Cranbourne North.
The Precinct Structure Plan, called Casey Central Town Centre, consists of 60 hectares of land located between Cranbourne and Fountain Gate, Narre Warren.
Building on the established Casey Central Shopping Centres retail core, the area will be a compact urban space featuring offices, restaurants and civic services within a walkable street network.
Once fully developed, the activity centre will provide over 4,100 jobs through multi-storey offices and commercial spaces.
Located at the junction of two major arterial roads, Narre Warren Cranbourne Road and Glasscocks Road, the Corporate Centre will provide an attractive office offer within the broader transport network of Cranbourne North, via the major east-west route on Thompsons Road.
The Precinct Structure Plan for Casey Central also provides the planning for the missing link for Glasscocks Road, along with associated intersections and pedestrian/cycle networks. This will complete the arterial transport network.
The new precinct will allow residents in Melbourne’s booming south-east greater diversity in housing choice and the opportunity to work close to their homes; reducing congestion on our roads and giving people back precious family and recreational time.
Furthermore, the centre will be home to approximately 4,200 residents, who will reside in high-quality, multi-storey and mixed-use developments.
The activity centre will also include several proposed new community facilities, including a central park, an integrated community centre, regional library, youth services and indoor sports facility.
Casey Central Town Centre was first conceived by the City of Casey several years ago as part of their Casey C21 Strategy.
The Victorian Planning Authority subsequently developed the Precinct Structure Plan for the area, working closely with Casey Council, and Planning Minister Richard Wynne approved the plan in September 2016. It was gazetted shortly afterwards.
