Casey Council has recently developed a new Draft Urban Design Framework to outline its 20-year vision of the Casey Complex.
Located in Cranbourne East, the complex currently comprises of The Factory/Shed, Casey Safety Village, Casey RACE, Terry Vickerman Building/Casey Stadium, Administration Building, Cranbourne Library, and the Balla Balla Community Centre.
Casey councillor Amanda Stapledon said the new draft framework provides exciting and vibrant design guidance for the development of buildings, public areas, and open space to enhance and improve the look and feel of the site.
“Creating a lively community space aims to attract future investment, and in turn deliver more and meet the needs of our community,” she said.
Mayfield Ward councillor Gary Rowe said the Casey community was asked to provide feedback on the draft framework via an online survey on Casey Conversation’s website, or in-person at one of the information sessions held at the Casey Complex.
Feedback collected highlighted that the community:
• agrees that the complex needs a facelift and is happy and excited with the proposed development plans
• supports the plans for Cranbourne East station and would advocate for an earlier delivery
• is concerned about traffic increasing around the complex, especially during school pick up hours.
“The feedback will assist in informing the final version of the Casey Complex Urban Design Framework Plan, which will be shared with the community before implementation at the end of this year,” he said.
