Approval of Brompton Lodge PSP to create a suburb of 4,000 in Melbourne's south-east

THE Victorian Planning Authority last week announced that Planning Minister Richard Wynne has approved the Brompton Lodge Precinct Structure Plan (PSP), which paves the way for a new suburb in Melbourne's south-east near Cranbourne.

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.

When complete, the suburb will have a population of approximately 4,000, who will be serviced by a local town centre, a purpose-built wetlands and district park. There will also be tree-lined cycling and walking paths to Cranbourne West and bus services to central Cranbourne.

It is the second approved PSP that was designated a 'logical inclusion' to the urban growth boundary. Within the precinct, there will be a range of apartments and town houses, with an average density of 19 dwellings per developable hectare – which is denser than many established Melbourne suburbs.

Developers will contribute more than $27 million in levies to help deliver community facilities and infrastructure.

The closest jobs hub is central Cranbourne, which is approximately 5 kilometres from the precinct. There will be 369 jobs based within the precinct, the majority of which will be at the local town centre.
