Victoria’s Planning Minister, Richard Wynne, announced two a new suburbs for Melbourne – Fraser Rise and Deanside.
The new suburbs will be developed on 1,940 hectares of land between Caroline Springs and the emerging suburb of Aintree (at Rockbank North). They will create local jobs and make homes more affordable for young Victorians.
The new suburbs will be developed over more than 10 years, eventually becoming home to 20,000 dwellings and 14,000 jobs.
The planning framework allows for up to seven government schools in the future and three non-government schools. Additional bus routes are being planned that will connect the suburbs, as they grow, to key major centres such as Watergardens, Caroline Springs, St Albans and the Sunshine Hospital…
Developers are giving back by helping fund community services and facilities that new residents need. Developers building Fraser Rise and Deanside will pay $195 million in Growth Area Infrastructure Contributions for schools, public transport and emergency service facilities. Another $395 million in developer contributions to the City of Melton will pay for local infrastructure and land acquisition to deliver community services such as children’s services, sporting facilities and arterial roads.
Supply is a key cornerstone of housing affordability, which is why the Victorian Government is rezoning 100,000 lots of land in key growth areas in two years – and speeding up the time is takes for land to be shovel ready.
Deanside Shopping Centre
We are yet to see development plans that including a larger shopping centre. There will be a large retail shopping centre at Bridgefield. I would only assume that a larger shopping area in Deanside will be in the planning
