Last September and October 2019 when the council engaged the community members in collecting feedback for the proposed framework for the Casey Complex site. Now the residents of Cranbourne East will soon enjoy a bustling new precinct at the Casey Complex site, as the new Complex Urban Design Framework (UDF) gets adopted.
Located in the Cranbourne East, the Complex UDF will support the growing community nd create a place that engenders an exciting and vibrant community destination through intense and diverse land uses.
City of Casey Mayor Cr Susan Serey noted the positive opportunities the precinct will provide, whilst effectively meeting the community’s needs.
“As the City of Casey continues to expand and mature, Council continues to look at ways to improve the facilities and infrastructure our communities need and deserve.”
The frameworks aims to enhance existing landmarks and improve the look and feel of the place by providing design guidance for the development of buildings, public areas, and open space within the Casey Complex site.
With improved amenities, shops, cafes and dedicated public open spaces the precinct will attract potential investment, innovation and community events and in turn open up job opportunities through education, community, health, recreation and leisure facilities.
The framework also aims to improve traffic flow in and around the precinct and access to public transport options with a key priority of the project to connect Main Street to the future Cranbourne East train station, enhancing pedestrian safety and access to the precinct’s facilities.
Main Street concept design is set to commence in 2022.
